Marvel mastermind Kevin Feige has been open about his love of Star Wars and revealed years ago his secret Easter Egg nod to Empire Strikes Back in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Just like Luke Skywalker famously lost hold of his father’s lightsaber when his dad cut off his hand, every movie in the second phase of the MCU has had someone losing their hand or arm. Now that Phase 2 is complete with the release of Ant-Man, we can prevent the final list of every Empire-based Marvel severed appendage! The list even includes all the Marvel TV properties as well!
Jump after the break to see them all, but since the last one is from the recently released Ant-Man then BE WARNED THE REST OF THIS POST CONTAINS ANT-MAN SPOILERS!
2015 is not going to break records at the box office. 2015 is going to utterly demolish box office records on the heels of two mega-performers and a market that is ready to have some fun in the movie theater again. Especially after this downer of an Oscar season. But what ten movies am I boldly predicting will be the top in the 2015 box office? Before we get to the top ten, let’s see what nine films will miss the cut.
Sometimes other people can express your views in a much more elegant way. For me that is “most of the time.” Wired published an epic dissection of the bleak future of the MCU that is to the beat of the drum I’ve been banging about shared universes since BEFORE Age of Ultron came out.
Marvel’s hit a bit of a streak lately. Age of Ultron has been at least a commercial success even if it isn’t quite up to par with the previous movie. Meanwhile, Daredevil earned a second season on Netflix after an excellent first year.
Would you believe Daredevil once fought Ultron in a comic book? Oh, and Daredevil won.
With the new Avengers: Age of Ultron movie hitting the ground running, we thought it would be appropriate to show off one of the newest characters: Scarlet Witch. Check out Florencia Sofen from Clint and Jillian Cosplay & Photography. See more after the break:
