So the big “tease” news to hit today in Marvel movie / tv show news is that on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. there is a tease that Director Phil Coulson could go Evil and become a big Marvel Super Villain. I personally think it’s the only real story left for the Coulson character besides him coming out that he’s a Life Model Decoy (LMD). I’d prefer the LMD story-line but since they didn’t do that story for the return from death, I bought they’d do it now…. unless it’s the LMD that goes bad?!
They’re calling it the HITMAN “Season Premiere” as the game is released next week on March 11th, 2016. It should be noted that the game will have some tough competition with The Division coming out next Tuesday. Stunning trailer though.
The long awaited sequel to Finding Nemo launches it’s newest trailer for Finding Dory where Dory (Ellen Degeneres) gets lost, has flashes of her own family with help Nemo & his dad Marlin, Dory sets off to her family in what looks like an aquarium and Seaworld-like location. Looks great and you can’t go wrong when you have Albert Brooks in your film.
So it seems that Marvel wants to cash in some attention during Super Tuesday with ads / covers for an upcoming series Vote LOKI, a new political comicbook series in the Marvel Universe.
Check out our review of this weeks episode “Knots Untie” of The Walking Dead.

There’s been an awakening, have you felt it?
Since Disney bought all of the rights to Star Wars a few years ago, we already have The Force Awakens in theaters and tentatively Rogue One coming out this December. While it causes painful feelings of fanboy rage that there’s been literally no leaked footage or anything from the set from Rogue One, it’s just an interesting foot note for the Star Wars legacy as it marks a step away from the tradition of being Jedi vs Sith and further adventures of the Skywalker legacy.
To the House of Mouse, this is still risky in similar ways Guardians of the Galaxy was during the production phase. While the franchise can be considered familiar, the tone and content was unique compared to what came before and in the end, the gamble proved to be worth it in terms of fan appreciation and how much it made back in theaters, let alone on video.
Naturally, Disney set forward a plan of treating the Star Wars franchise like Marvel films. While the episode films such as The Force Awakens would be the Avengers, the other films that would fit in between would be known as the anthology series.
Think of them as Iron Man or Captain America flicks as they are stories about characters that show up in the major films. Rogue One’s details place it firmly as being involved with a critical tie in to A New Hope as a group belonging to the Rebel Alliance must locate and obtain the plans to the first Death Star, setting up the events to A New Hope.
While it’s been confirmed that the episode films going from 7 to 9 are set to tell what happens years after Return of the Jedi, what else could Disney do in between?
While details of a young Han Solo flick are still rumours at best, the cartoon series Rebels already fills out a gap of time for before A New Hope, just as the Clone Wars series fills the gap between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith – There’s a longer history waiting to be explored.
Before Disney bought out Star Wars, there was the Expanded Universe – A set of comics, video games and books that went from the very near beginning of the universe with Dawn of the Jedi all the way to the last known timeline with Legacies.
While the details from those materials could be considered loose canon as a few parts managed to become canon such as the name of Coruscant itself, it was treated more as a what if by the Lucasarts department especially as it established Han and Leia having kids way before Kylo Ren was sulking about with his grand papa’s helmet.
Currently, the new EU hasn’t had that much room to grow as the new rule going forward is that any books or comics are now directly tied into the canon established by the movies. This means that Rebels is the official prequel to A New Hope and much to dismay of some, so is Aftermath as being what happens after Return of the Jedi.
The big question most nerds could be wondering is what exactly could Disney come up with for those anthology films? More teen Solo films? Shadows of the Empire adaption if they can cgi an entire younger cast of Hamill/Harrison/Fisher to look like they did during ESB?
Let’s see if your dream ideas for the next anthology series as I present to you, my top three picks for an anthology Star Wars flick.

So I’ve been wondering about how they’re going to be doing the upcoming Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist. Here’s our article about Finn Jones being cast as Daniel Rand aka Iron Fist. Here’s my Fan Theory on how the Iron Fist Netflix show will break down given the shows we’ve seen in Daredevil & Jessica Jones.
So the Russo brothers have mentioned on Empire Magazine about how the battle lines were drawn for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie opening May 6, 2016. Seems that the fallout from Avenger: Age of Ultron has a new set of rules for super powered heroes like The Avengers named Sokovia Accords. The new Accords rules create a division between Iron Man and Captain America after Bucky / Winter Solider is setup then hunted down by Black Panther & other government agencies.
