Avengers: Infinity War / The Avengers 3 (2018)

  • Rating: PG-13
  • -Genre: Action, Sci-Fi

Earth’s Mightiest Heroes join forces once again to take on the Mad Titan Thanos, who threatens to wreck havoc with the power of the Infinity Gauntlet.

Thanos (Josh Brolin) decides to collect the Infinity Stones himself in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. The Avengers, who had a falling out during Captain America: Civil War, need to come together to face their biggest threat yet. Doctor Strange and the Guardians Of The Galaxy will be joining the Avengers for the first time, and returning heroes from Civil War include Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo are in charge of the project with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely as the writers.

Filming for the movie has already wrapped up and production is underway. However details about the film continue to be scarce. Actress Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Wanda Maximoff or the Scarlet Witch, revealed that she, like many other actors, was only given portions of the whole script. It means they only know about their participation in the film but they do not always know who they are in the scene with. Holland, who is known to reveal too much plot in interviews, has also revealed that in some scenes he shot, he had to fight with imaginary opponents.

Aside from how the biggest ensemble of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) characters ever seen in one movie, viewers are also excited to find out how the Avengers themselves reconcile after the events that occurred on Captain America: Civil War, where they were divided into two groups led by Robert Downey, Jr.’s Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, and Chris Evans’s Steve Rogers, aka Captain America.

Other Avengers characters, such as Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Vision (Paul Bettany), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) will also be back.

Doctor Strange’s Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Wong (Benedict Wong) will also join, along with “Guardians of the Galaxy’s” Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Nebula (Karen Gillan), and Mantis (Pom Kelemntieff).

Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled for release on May 4, 2018.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

  • Rating: PG-13
  • -Genre: Sci-Fi

The second Anthology spinoff Star Wars story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley. Plot details are largely unknown, but the film will cover Han’s life from the ages of 18-24 and explore key events such as meeting his lifelong friend Chewbacca and winning the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian.

Han Solo was introduced in the original Star Wars film released in 1977, portrayed by Harrison Ford. Ford reprised the character in three sequels, most recently in 2015’s The Force Awakens, where he died at the hands of his son, Kylo Ren. Solo’s past has been shrouded in mystery in Star Wars canon, and this film hopes to shed more life on his earlier days before he became a Rebellion hero.

Rumors have indicated star Alden Ehrenreich signed a three picture deal with Lucasfilm when he was cast, so this conceivably could be the first installment of a standalone Han Solo trilogy.
