I wanted to write up another Marvel update since the Avengers: Age Of Ultron surprise. My mate, Kurt posted this picture on Facebook back on 28th October, everyone was sharing this to everybody and the news spread like wildfire and every Marvel fan is now up-to-date on the line-up of Marvel films that have filled us all up with hype and excitement.
I'm gonna write down some feelings and thoughts on the line-up for Phase 3 as well as mention the previous Phases and how they have all lead up to now.
Phase 1: Avengers Assembled
Iron Man was the first film in the Cinematic Universe, it's maybe my personal favourite, we have a character played by a now unforgettable actor with a hilarious persona inside a suit of Armour with a heavy arsenal and a brilliant personality. The previous HULK film wasn't included in this universe for some reason but the sequel The Incredible Hulk was and I believe it's because of the secret ending which features Mr Stark mentioning already the big film that will in 4 years time collaborate everyone for the epic fight. Iron Man had his sequel, Iron Man 2 which wasn't bad but still just as good thanks to Robert Downey Jr's performance as usual and the glamorous appearance of Black Widow. The big dude with the Hammer, Thor was smashing (ha) and certainly attracted the hearts of many female fans and other fans who probably don't follow the comics either and also had Hawkeye for a while too. And then Stars and Stripes, Captain America: The First Avenger (well the title says it all) represents the first ever Superhero and how his story links to the future of several Marvel films, comics and series. By the end of the film, were all set for the greatest Marvel film ever, Avengers Assemble. That one was the tip of the iceberg and brought everyone of our heroes from Phase 1 together to fight the biggest battle led by Loki (Thor's bro) and by the end, begins a new chapter in the MCU and a new Phase that's full of sequels for our super buddies and show new characters, villains and stories.
Stark faced his biggest threat yet in Iron Man 3 and had the coolest battle which made the House Party Protocol the greatest and coolest fight ever for my eyes (besides Avengers of course) it was like a swarm of fireflies with real firepower, at the end I wasn't happy with his choices but have to agree with em cause it all looks different and back to square one but that means by the time Avengers: Age Of Ultron comes out, maybe Stark has some new toys and tricks to show off? Thor: The Dark World had a more different plot compared to the first one (I can't compare which is better, probs first one) but this time he had more compassion but the ending was a total jaw-dropper which left me and my mates wondering... what's gonna happen in Thor: Ragnarok? Captain met his match in my all time favorite Marvel film (tied with Iron Man and maybe an original Spider-Man film), Captain America: The Winter Soldier turned the tables and tide in the MCU and storyline as I've mentioned in my post already. 4 Outlaws became the Guardians Of The Galaxy and had their own epic story full of comedy and fights and showed brilliant character development as well as hint towards the Avenger sequel and now I know they'll appear in Avengers: Infinity War.
Let's not forget that for over a year now, we've been graced with a cool Spy-Fi series Marvel Agent's Of S.H.I.E.L.D which I've followed religiously and find fascinating seeing as Agent Phil Coulson is alive since his death in Avengers and has his own life full of action, mystery and spy work with his great team. The series even links to the MCU films especially Captain America: The Winter Soldier, now it's all changed due to what's happened. I still enjoy it all since it shows that you don't need to have superhero powers to help make the world a better place and stop the bad guy's world domination... even though they seem to still be better and are hiding everywhere. Now I'm just waiting on the Avengers sequel and Ant-Man before we go into Phase Three.
I've only played Ant-Man in Lego Marvel Super Heroes game and his ability is to shrink down to ant-size and grow back to human size. Sorry I don't know anything about him, but apparently Paul Rudd is the candidate to play him. Why not? He's funny, I wonder if he can be a Marvel Superhero too?!

Now onto the new films that even I have no clue on what's gonna happen next.

Even these two pictures that look fan-made even look intriguing and cool to look at but the top one looks more confusing.
Black Panther being the first "black" superhero character (besides The Falcon, Storm and Luke Cage) he's actually a character I have no f***ing clue about, if you want some spoilers then Wikipedia him. Apparently Stan Lee himself adores him badly so I guess that's maybe something to think about and why the film is finally in development. This link here has some good facts that I enjoyed reading.

I wonder which costume they'll use on the actress for the film? And what kind of story will we discover in this film adaption?
Avengers: Infinity War Part I & II
Those who may not know or recognise Deadpool, did you watch X-Men Origins: Wolverine? You know the funny badass character that Ryan Reynolds played and later looked messed up, topless and full of mutant powers... well that's Deadpool, in a way. You see Deadpool "Wade Wilson" is a famous Marvel Mercenary and Anti-Hero (like Wolverine) character who is known as the "Merc with a Mouth" who constantly slaps jokes, talks out loud, mentally unstable and full of naughty humour and continues to break the "Fourth Wall"! (For example, in Literature and Video Games, it occurs when a character acknowledges the reader or player not like an Inner Monologue during a Pantomime) He had his own game which was really funny and cool to play. And basically he's a naughty comedy character in the Marvel Universe that has the same regeneration power as Wolverine and just causes chaos, helps out in his own way if he chooses to and just won't shut up.
"Nolan North" did the voice for him in the game and several other games and TV series he has featured in, I loved Nolan's voice for Deadpool as it's perfect for his character and split-personalities, though Ryan did a good job too and in this film, he will reprise his role but this time, it's apparently going to be animated and I don't know if it's continuing from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Oh, I cannot wait until February 2016!!!
Well I think that's all of em. Wow this post has been tough and quite the research essay. Really pleased that Marvel have laid out the table for us now for the next couple years.
I've been good and bad during this week, been researching and watching videos on past Tough Mudder events and getting excited and scared at the same time. Pretty sure I'm gonna do it next May with most of my mates from my College group as they have faith in me and say to me "If Lewis can do it, then so can you mate!" Enough said. Plus I've been playing more Xbox and finally getting round to finishing a few games such as Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag... yeah! It's taken me over a year to get back onto my ship and complete the story instead of getting side-tracked by collecting collectibles and straying from the path and get ready for Assassin's Creed: Unity which is out in less than a couple days. It looks amazing and I'm looking forward to teaming up with my buds online and forming a badass Assassin team.
Also I am considering writing up another Gym post because it's been just over a year since joining the Pavilions and I want to show my progression along with a couple pictures showing my results, that should be up next week.
