The trailers for the film have been absolutely astounding; the build up to the conflict between two favourite heroes, riveting; and the fan excitement level, at al all-time peak.
As the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Phase Three, Captain America: Civil War should form the basis for the plethora of Marvel films to come. That extensive list includes this fall’s Doctor Strange, next year’s Thor: Ragnarok and Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and then Captain Marvel among others. Wrapping up the phase will be the two-part extravaganza: Avengers: Infinity War.
And if you know Marvel Comics, and are a fan of these Marvel movies, then you’re looking for Easter Eggs – those hidden gems of story, characters or incidents that only the most educated of the educated know about.
We here at Biff Bam Pop! love talking about them. That’s what this article is for: Easter Egg wants. Our wishes. Our desires. And like good ‘ol Cap, we could do this all day.
Here, then, are the Easter Eggs that four Biff Bam Pop! writers (and Marvel Cinematic Universe enthusiasts) want to see in the highly anticipated blockbuster film.
Give them a read and then tell us what your Easter Egg wants are, fan-boys and fan-girls!
While we have the week off from “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” and the rest of the world enjoys the finals of this season’s “Dancing with the Stars,” let’s sit back and reflect on what may be the big game changer on the show, and I’m not talking about dancing – I’m talking about the Inhumans. Meet me after the jump and we’ll explore the Inhumans and their connection to “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
“I am going to die surrounded by the biggest idiots in the galaxy.” – Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy
Isn’t that what summer movies are all about? Checking our intelligence in at the theater door and joining other fellow “idiots” as we watch mind-numbing, big-budget flicks with minimal plot lines and questionable acting? I admit, the term ‘idiots’ might be a bit harsh here, but after watching “The Legend of Hercules” with my friends, I definitely felt like an idiot for having gone (though we did get plenty of laughs from the experience so it ended up being worth it).
Here’s my Top 5 Scene Stealers from 2014’s Summer Movie Extravaganza:
We didn’t get an episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” this week. Instead, we got an admittedly self-serving but ultimately cool special about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, called “Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe.” Among other things, including a history of the studio, secret Easter eggs in the movies, etc., we also got a sneak peek at the concept art for two of the most anticipated new Avengers from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Meet me after the jump for Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch…
Last week’s episode was definitely a magical delight with the special appearance of the White Witch herself, Stevie Nicks. But while Stevie treated us to a serving, although rather small, sampling of her songs, Madison, Fiona and Marie Laveau were serving up their own songs of betrayal and murder. The witches have a war on their hands with the Delphi Corporation. Nan is dead and Misty is stuck in the grave? What happens next? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
Holy flying monkeys at a tea party! Last week’s episode had us reeling with revelations, flashbacks and much more. The Council of Witches is in town with Myrtle (Frances Conroy butting heads with Fiona. Spalding has strange hobbies and stranger playmates. Hank is a scary man and a cheat. Madison was not the runner-up for Supreme witch, but who is? Voodoo goddess Marie Laveau has received an unexpected package. What can I say? Some gifts are never meant to be opened. The war is on with Cordelia being at the right place at the wrong time. I ask this every week; what next? Grab your broom sticks and meet me after the jump.
This is a bit of a surprise. Director Bryan Singer just announced via Twitter that Evan Peters, he of American Horror Story fame, had joined the cast of X-Men: Days Of Future Past as…
Makes sense, as Quicksilver is, in the comic book world, the son of Magneto.
However, Joss Whedon has confirmed that the character will also be a big part of Marvel’s The Avengers 2.
So, a double dose of Pietro Maxmioff. How will that work? As it stands, Fox can use the character, but can’t reference the Avengers. Alternately, Marvel can use the character but can’t use his mutant background or any refer to Magneto.
Unexpected? Totally. Confusing? A little. Complicated? A bit. Cool? I’d say.
The Vision used to be the Avenger. He was up in the corner of every Avengers cover for well over a decade. There wasn’t an Avengers team without him. He was that popular, and then through the acts of several different writers over the course of a few years, he was gone. Now, in Avengers Assemble Annual #1, the Vision is back finally. More after the jump.
