Comic books turned action movies are all the rage nowadays.

Marvel and DC comic books have been gracing the silver screen for years.  Warner Brothers has gotten in on the action with their upcoming movie “Justice League”.

Recently, Warner Brothers released a new movie poster for the highly anticipated film. The new poster shows Batman and the members of the newly formed Justice League along with the caption “Unite The League”.

The “Justice League” comes right off the heels of the “Batman vs Superman” movie. In the “Justice League”, Batman finds himself inspired by Superman’s selfless act to sacrifice himself in order to save the world. While trying to deal with the tragic loss of Superman, Batman begins to have a little faith in humanity again.

The Formation Of The Justice League

Bruce Wayne (Batman) teams up with Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) to form the Justice League. Batman and Wonder Woman have to work quickly to  find and recruit as many metahumans as they can to join the league. The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman and Batman make up the much needed Justice League. Unfortunately, the league may not be enough to save the planet from a catastrophic assault.

The film was directed by Zack Snyder and the screenplay written by Chris Terrio. “Justice League” also has a star studded cast which includes Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Barry Allen, Jesse Eisenberg, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Henry Cavill, and Diane Lane. The official release date for the “Justice League” is set for November 17th of this year. In the meantime, you can check out the official trailer of the movie below.

mcu marvel cinematic universe phase 4

Marvel Phase 4  has been announced at San Diego Comic Con and we are ecstatic! The next phase of the latest set of Marvel films introduces us to five new series on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, a new Blade, as Mahershalah Ali has been cast in the role of the half-vampire superhero, sequels to Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Doctor Stranger, Guardians of The Galaxy, and Thor, movies based on The Eternals, Black Widow, Shang-Chi, and the Fantastic Four, and mutants finally joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

The blerd in us is screaming at the above mentioned news as even more superheroes are coming to the screen. The Disney+ shows will feature shows based on Hawkeye, Captain America & Falcon, Loki, The Scarlet Witch & Vision (WandaVision), and What If? The latter will be animated and is based off the line of Marvel Comics of the same name showing what would happen if certain heroes or villains made other decisions in events, instead of what we originally saw play out.

The news of Mahershalah’s casting as Blade is genius. He has the look, build, and acting chops to be the vampire bad ass we grew to know and love in the late nineties and early 2000s. His inclusion with Doctor Strange shows Marvel is definitely including the supernatural and more magic in their roster. This is not Mahershalah’s first bout in the MCU, however, as he portrayed the crime lord, Cottonmouth in Netflix’s Luke Cage during its first season. In other casting news for Marvel, Natalie Portman has been cast as the female Thor! As you may recall, a couple of years ago in the comics Thor became unworthy to wield Mjolnir and Jane Foster (Natalie’s character, and Thor’s original love interest) was worthy and became the new Thor! This should all play out in Thor: Love & Thunder! Perhaps there will be a love triangle between he, Valkyrie, and Jane–if the former is not cast completely as a lesbian, but bisexual instead.

We are not surprised to hear that Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Doctor Stranger, Guardians of The Galaxy, and Thor are getting sequels. Each of these characters are now headliners in the MCU, especially with the retirement of Captain America (Steve Rogers) and the demise of Iron Man and Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame. Black Widow’s standalone film will be a prequel and The Eternals is a new film altogether that may explain Thanos’ origins and introduce us to characters like Mentor (Thanos’ father), Eros (Thanos’ brother), and Sersi. The latter two are know Avengers in the comics.

x-men and fantastic four

Perhaps the most anticipated news of the new phase is the mention of the Fantastic Four being introduced, along with the introduction of mutants. Retconning the Fantastic Four’s origins and adding them to the MCU should be easy. The mutants, however, are a different thing. Even if mutants are just now being discovered, how do we explain older mutants like Wolverine, Magneto, and Professor X sitting out the cataclysms the Avengers have protected the world from? All in all, we are so excited about the future of the MCU! What do you guys think? Sound off in the comments section below.

Check out a few of the tweets below:

As much hate as these racist comments and trolls gave, these was even more love from Black Twitter and many media outlets praising Disney for their diversity casting. Halle will star alongside Melissa McCarthy who has been tapped to play the sea witch, Ursula; and Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina to play Flounder and Scuttle, respectively. What do you guys think of Disney’s casting decision for The Little Mermaid. Are you down for our next trip “Under The Sea?”
