Kim Kardashian did not break the internet. I repeat: Kim Kardashian did not break the internet! IT IS SPIDERMAN WHO BROKE THE INTERNET.
The prodigal son is back to Marvel, partially. In a ripple sending deal, Marvel Studios have decided to partner with Sony to share Spiderman's film rights. This means that Spiderman will be in Marvel's Phase 3.
I am a supreme Spiderman fan. And I cannot begin to express my excitement over this news. I am going crazy like a cuckoo.
But, the consequent news of Thor, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and The Inhumans being pushed back hit me too hard.
Thor's date has been changed from July 28th, 2017 to November 3rd, 2017. The Nov 3 spot was reserved for Black Panther which has now moved into Captain Marvel's slot of July 6th. Captain Marvel has taken the November 2nd, 2018 spot and in turn pushed Inhumans beyond the Infinity War Part 2 spot to July 12th, 2019.
I am a massive Inhumans fan, as evident by my gigantic post on the Inhumans before. I wanted to see the Inhumans featured in their own film before the events of Avengers Infinity War.
But I think the way things are right now, we are likely to have the Inhumans directly introduced in the Avengers without a solo film. Their plotline is being followed in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. So, it is likely that Marvel will introduce them directly in the Infinity War, forcing them to come out of hiding to deal with Thanos and his minions.
And after the events of the Infinity War, they will get a solo film of their own in July with Maximus the Mad taking the throne while they were away.
As for Captain Marvel, she will still have a solo film before the events of Infinity War, but she has been pushed to November. She is in my top 5 favourite superheroes. Sigh.
Black Panther, another of my favourites, is now getting a solo film after the events of Avengers Infinity War Part 1.
I have been trying to figure this out since the announcements last year. How will Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Inhumans' solo films fit between the two Infinity War films?
Is it that Infinity War Part 1 takes place entirely in the cosmos, far from earth? Is Infinity War Part 1 the film where we see Thanos collect all Infinity Stones? Will Loki's scepter leave Earth at the end of Avengers Age of Ultron and back to Asgard?
Or will Thanos make landfall on Earth at the end of Infinity War Part 1 to retrieve the final stone missing from his Gauntlet in the form of the Mind Gem?
It remains to be seen how things pan out.
My only complaint is the absence of an Inhumans film before the events of Infinity War.
I will riot if the Inhumans aren't featured in the Infinity War at all. That will be the cruellest joke from Marvel and I will not laugh at it.
