Wonder Woman‘s success with critics and at the box office is going to finally make studios look at giving heroines the lead in upcoming comic book films. A few are in the works, some have long been rumored, but who MOST deserves a solo film of their own ASAP?
And before you ask, I’ve excluded Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman as they are slated to appear together next in David Ayer’s Gotham City Sirens. Captain Marvel and Batgirl already have solo films in pre-production, Zatanna will be part of Justice League Dark, and Jessica Jones and Elektra are central figures in Marvel’s Netflix Shows. So pick your favorite, cast your vote, and we’ll come up with our site champion for Disney, FOX, or WB!
When I was a little kid, Marvel had just put out their Secret Wars action figure line, and my mom got me a bunch of them. I would have epic battles spanning the basement between heroes and villains and heroes and heroes and heroes and the occasional He-Man figure who wandered by much to their regret. It’s that kind of childlike super hero glee that fills you watching the airport battle in Captain America: Civil War.

If you’re not following CLS Videos on YouTube, you’re missing out on some truly fantastic supercuts. Today, in honor of Captain America: Civil War hitting stores, we offer up CLS’ supercut of the best of the MCU. This seven minute trailer incorporates, I believe, every character in the MCU introduced to-date, including some from Doctor Strange (which won’t even open until November. It’s a celebration of all Marvel Studios has done to create this shared cinematic universe and bring to the screen something Marvel fans have loved about the comics for decades. From Issue #1 (Iron Man) to the upcoming issue #14 (Dr. Strange), here’s the very best of the MCU.
The MCU Exchange has put together a fantastic super cut trailer that shows how the plot lines that will explode in Captain America: Civil War have been slowly converging over the course of the first two phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s a fantastic tribute, really, to the plotting and pre-planning that has made the MCU such a success and the lack of it has caused the DC Cinematic Universe to barely get off the ground. There are just as many pieces in play in Captain America: Civil War as there are in Batman vs. Superman, if not more. However, I’m not worried at all about Civil War, and I’m dreading BvS.
The Russo Brothers have proven themselves with Cap 2, and the MCU has proven itself time and again. I hear a lot of blowback on Age of Ultron online, but the movie was good. Was it the best MCU film? No. Do you realize how high that bar is now? AOU, I think was wrongly anticipated to be a climax like the first Avengers film was. In reality, it was much more like Iron Man 2 in that it established several other movies, moved the story along and served as a pivot. I think Civil War is actually the movie that people thought AOU was going to be, because this is the one that will change things forever. I know that’s tried and true comic book hype, but it’s accurate. The MCU as we know it will cease to exist after Civil War hits on May 3, 2016.
