Dates for Phase 5 of the MCU may have been Leaked

After unveiling Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Comic Con last month, it's believed that plans for Phase 5 will be announced at D23. But have some of the release dates may have already been leaked?



Charles Murphy (@_CharlesMurphy) - someone who is known for revealing accurate info - has tweeted possible release dates for two upcoming movies. According to Murphy (which "could be subject to change"), Black Panther 2 will arrive in cinemas on 18th February 2022, and will be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on 6th May 2022. These dates are similar to the movies that preceded them, Black Panther was released on 13th February 2018 and GOTG Vol. 2 on 27th April 2017. Both movies had a lot of success in their respective slots, so it makes sense that Marvel would attempt to continue that success with future instalments. It has also been confirmed by James Gunn, that he won't be working on GOTG Vol. 3 until after he's completed production of "The …

Spider-Man: Far From Home | Average Guy Movie Review

Eight months after "the snap" was undone, life has returned to a relative degree of normality. Some people are five years older and some are not, a nightmare for most, but more so for teenagers. After all that has gone on, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) wants a break from his duties as the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, so he's heading off for a vacation in Europe with his friends. But Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) has other plans for the Web Head. It seems Fury and his team are having trouble with some monsters of the elemental variety, and the warrior hunting them might need some help. Will Peter get to spend some time with MJ (Zendaya), or will the "Night Monkey" come between them?

The gang is all back - in more ways than one - and director Jon Watts is leading them on another great adventure. Marvel appears to have learnt a lot from Spidey's previous solo outing in the MCU. Homecoming suffered from bad trailers spoiling far too much, including some of it…

Captain Marvel | Average Guy Movie Review

During a mission for Starforce, Kree warrior 'Vers' (Brie Larson) tracks a group of Skrulls - lead by Talos (Ben Medelsohn) - to Earth circa 1995. There she discovers that they are searching for a hidden device, one that could tip the balance of the war between these two races in the Skrulls' favour. But does 'Vers' have more of a connection to this planet than she first realised? The only person willing to help her find out is a young Agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) of S.H.I.E.L.D.


Directing team Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck deliver an origin story for what is considered to be the most powerful hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; Carol Danvers - A.K.A. 'Vers', A.K.A. Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). But in order to do it, they have thrown the Marvel Guide to Origin Stories right out the window. When we first meet 'Vers', she already has her powers and no memory of her life before gaining them. Which means the audience gets to discover who she is al…

Dark Phoenix | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The second trailer for Dark Phoenix - the latest movie in the X-Men franchise, and the last under 20th Century Fox - has landed. And if you're keen to avoid spoilers, stop reading now! More importantly, don't watch the trailer because the spoiler contained within is massive. As both a movie fan and a blogger, I usually enjoy watching trailers. I like to get an idea of what I'm in for, but despite how awesome Dark Phoenix looks because of this trailer, I genuinely regret watching it, and it's all thanks to the aforementioned spoiler.


It's 1992, after the events of Apocalypse the X-Men are heroes. During a rescue mission in space the team are hit by what the director Simon Kinberg describes as a "cosmic force", causing Jean (Sophie Turner) to lose control of her powers, unleashing the Phoenix. This chain of events will tear the team apart over how to stop both Jean and the Phoenix. Could this be the end for the X-Men?



Well the answer to that first one is most…

James Gunn in Talks to Direct Suicide Squad 2

According to The Hollywood Reporter, James Gunn is in talks to direct Suicide Squad 2, or The Suicide Squad as it has been titled.




The Guardians of the Galaxy director was already brought in to write the script after he was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. It seems like a logical step therefore, to bring him on as director. After all, he managed to make one of Marvel's most risky products a major success. Will he be able to do the same for DC's troubled rogues' gallery?


2016's Suicide Squad was the subject of major interest. Thought to be a lighter turn for DC after the doom and gloom of Batman v. Superman, it turned out to be a big disappointment for many. Major re-shoots took the movie in very different direction to what was originally intended, and a lot of fans were unhappy with the Joker being side lined into a much smaller role.


It seems Gunn is planning to do something new with Task Force X. The Suicide Squad isn't going to be a direct sequel. Sources…

Spider-Man: Far From Home | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Well it has finally arrived, and the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home does not disappoint. Here's what we thought. Needless to say the trailer does contain some spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, so read on at your own peril...

Not seen the trailer yet? Check it out below:

First of all, this is a great trailer, lots of intriguing snippets and no real spoilers - apart from the aforementioned Endgame spoilers anyway. Jon Watts returns as director, continuing to develop the story and characters first seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Peter (Tom Holland) is still working as the friendly neighbourhood wall-crawler, something Aunt May (Marissa Tomei) is aware of. With the help of Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), they are using Pete's alter ego to do some charity work. There might even be some sparks flying between Happy and May.

With a school trip to Europe on the cards, the teenage Avenger is looking forward to just being a teenager for a while, even electing to leave his suit behind.…

Captain Marvel | Jude Law's Character Confirmed

Spoiler Alert
It has finally been confirmed who Jude Law will be playing in the upcoming Captain Marvel. Many have speculated, and it seems their speculation was correct.
According to the official Captain Marvel page on the Disney website Law will be playing Mar-Vell, leader of the Starforce. Which makes him Captain Marvel's (AKA Carol Danvers) boss. The question is; how will it affect their relationship when Danvers (played by Brie Larson) returns to Earth?
First hinted at during Avengers: Infinity War's end credits scene, we know Nick Fury has a good relationship with Captain Marvel. Now we get to see how that relationship came about. It seems that during the 1990's, the Earth was caught in the middle of an inter-galactic war between the Kree and Skrulls. When an event causes her to crash into a Blockbuster Video Store (the youngsters among us may not know what that is), Captain Marvel chooses to defend her planet of origin. But will that choice set her at odds with the Sta…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse | Average Guy Movie Review

Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) is a typical teenager, struggling to fit in whilst also trying to find his place in the world. His struggles only worsen when he's bitten by a genetically engineered spider, gifting him with the same abilities as Spider-Man. Abilities he must learn to control. Luckily for Miles, a cross-dimensional event has brought several other Spider-People to his dimension, who better to teach him what it means to be Spider-Man? But will he master it all before his new found friends are forced to return home?



Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is proof that Sony can do a Spider-Man movie, and do it well, if they get the right people. Oh, and if they leave said people alone to do the work. This is a spectacular movie on every level. Thanks to some beautiful animation - a combination of comic book and anime styles - this new version of the Marvel universe looks fantastic. Not only that, the voice cast do an impeccable job of bringing it to life. And at the centre of i…

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Filming Pushed to 2021

According to Production Weekly (@prodweek), filming of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (under the working title "Hot Christmas") has been pushed to 2021. Which means we likely won't see a release until 2022.




This shouldn't come as much of a surprise given the recent controversy that resulted in James Gunn being fired by Disney. Now they need time to find a replacement director. Taika Waititi is said to be one of the frontrunners, which would make sense after his work on Thor: Raganarok. I think Waititi's crazy style would fit well with a Guardians movie.


But will this delay have other repercussions for the Guardians? Dave Bautista - who was very vocal about wanting Gunn reinstated - has said he's not sure if he will return for a third Guardians movie.





The good news however, according to Gunn's brother Sean (Kraglin in GOTG Vol. 1&2) the script Gunn wrote is still being used. In a tweet James Gunn described the Vol. 3 script as "Every bit of my heart.…

So That Avengers 4 Trailer Leak...Do We Believe It?

Warning: Possible Spoilers

Esquire have recently reported on a post to the Marvel Studios subreddit. A user posted what is supposed to be a description of a leaked trailer for Avengers 4, which has now been deleted.
But the question is; is it real? Some consider it "too detailed to be fake", while others are calling it "bad fan fiction".

Here's what the post said:

The trailer starts off showing the damaged Infinity Gauntlet in a field on the farm planet. As the camera focuses in on the gauntlet, we hear Tony's voice: "We were destined to lose." Epic music score starts. The Quinjet is shown landing in a Wakandan wasteland as we hear Rogers say: "We have come so far." Tony and Nebula step off the jet as the remaining Avengers approach. Steve has a look of relief and says: "Tony". Tony, seemingly defeated, shakes his head and gives a friendly smirk back to Cap. Marvel Studios logo appears. We get a glimpse of the Battle of New York from…
