Infinity Saturday: Marvel Comics News

Good day to all of you! It’s Infinity Saturday and I’ve got all the news in the Marvel Universe!

 

Movies

Apparently, Marvel Studios decided that they would shoot the two Avengers movies separately. In an interview with Collider, Kevin Feige decided to change course and shoot Infinity War and the untitled Avengers 4 as two separate movies:

“We’re doing them one right after another… It became too complicated to cross-board them like that, and we found ourselves—again, something would always pay the price. We wanted to be able to focus and shoot one movie and then focus and shoot another movie.”

That seems a good call. Shooting two films at the same time is not really a goo idea. Before Infinity War began production, the Russo brothers said that they want to make the film right and at the same time different from the previous two Avengers films.

So the question is, when will Avengers 4 begin production? Kevin Feige said that it will start this August which means that Infinity War will wrap up on June or July.

In other films, Sylvester Stallone’s role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been confirmed. He will be playing Stakar Ogord (a.k.a. Starhawk), one of the original Guardians in the comics. He will not be alone for he will be joined by Jing Rhames who will be playing Charlie-27 and Michelle Yeoh who would be playing as Aleta Ogord.

So we can drop the rumors that Stallone will be playing Galactus, that is only just an Aprl Fools prank.

Also, James Gunn confirmed that he will be writing and directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Although there is no story yet but according to Gunn, it will be heavenly be focused in Guardians. As of now, James Gunn is busy with the world premiere of Guardians 2 and the upcoming Infinity War for 2018.

Comics

Secret Empire opened this week and for the past few months of the Captain America: Steve Rogers arc, we get to see the real story behind Cap being a sleeper agent. He was apparently, recruited by Hydra secretly and since then, he was reporting back to them and helping Hydra to win World War II which is really a shocking reveal in the story.

Now, in Secret Empire,  the story focuses in Steve Rogers rising up in power and leading Hydra to ultimate dominion.
