Countdown To Civil War: CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Easter Egg Wants

Civil War Final PosterCaptain America: Civil War, perhaps the most eagerly anticipated film of the year, is days away from dropping.

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!

The Outrage of Ultron

av1

Marvel Comics released an original graphic novel this week, Avengers: Rage of Ultron, written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Jerome Opena, with Pepe Larraz, and additional inks by Mark Morales. Supposedly in continuity the story pits the Avengers of today and yesterday against the threat of Ultron, ending with mind-boggling circumstances and an insubstantial cliffhanger. The title nails it – rage, which is what I felt while reading it. Be prepared for spoilers, and meet me after the time jump for my angry thoughts about Rage of Ultron.
