Why Using Kang the Conqueror as the villain in Phase 4 of The Marvel Cinematic Universe means reboot!

images (96) marvel-s-avenger-s-villain-kang-owned-by-fox-430028

Kang the Conqueror is a fictional supervillain that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. In 2009, Kang was ranked as IGN’s 65th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has just made a new update to there slate of films. I believe though that after Phase 3 is up that Marvel will reboot the entire cinematic Universe. What better way to do that then to use a time travel villain like Kang the Conqueror. Marvel has extended it Phase 3 film into the year 2020. With dates on May 1st,July 10th and November 6th. One of these films will be the last film in Phase 3 and the last of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe. It also could be the beginning of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. What a better way to end the MCU then an all out brawl with Thanos. The Time Gem could come into play here. That’s how everything gets rebooted.

With the recent news that Bryan Cranston has expressed interest in playing a Marvel bad guy a really evil bad guy. It came to me that maybe he could play Kang The Conqueror in a late Phase 3 film or an early Phase 4 film. Using the time element that Thanos has in the Infinity Gems could create an alternate reality and bam you have a new Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kang has been one of the Avengers big bad guys over the years. This would fit the bill imo if you were Bryan Cranston. He would be the new big bad guy in the MCU and Marvel could reboot and all is happy.

Marvel has pushed back its Phase 3 films so they can plan something big for 2020. This would be a perfect way to end Phase 3 and start Phase 4 or End Phase 3 all together. Whatever happens we have a long way to go before anything is settled. I myself look for ward to what Marvel/Disney have in store for all of us fans. I think Bryan Cranston and Kang would both fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point Only Time will tell.

Why should the Oscar add nominees to the acting categories?


I’m a big fan of the Oscars or also called The Academy Awards as they are commonly known. This award ceremony celebrates the best in cinema through each calendar year. The ceremony is usually held around late February or early March the next year. The Academy Awards usually have 5 nominees in each of the 24 categories. This awards ceremony is up to its 87th year in existence. Many of the awards in the show have been given out ever since the beginning. The number of nominees have been the same as well. During that time the number of film that have came out during a given year more then tripled. In 2009 the nominees of the Best Picture category were raised from five to ten nominees. This was largely in turn because quite a few people were upset that The Dark Knight, the second film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, didn’t get nominated for Best Picture the year before. Heath Ledger would win the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his riveting portrayal of the sadistic,psychotic arch nemesis of Batman,The Joker.

I’m just gonna use the last two years as an example of why I believe that the acting nominees in the Best Acting categories should be raised to six or more nominees. Last year the nominees in the Best acting category were Steve Carell for Foxcatcher, Bradley Cooper for American Sniper, Benedict Cumberbatch for The Imitation Game, Michael Keaton for Birdman and Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything. Eddie Redmayne won the award. I believe two of these nominees shouldn’t have been nominated. They are Bradley Cooper for American Sniper and Steve Carell for Foxcatcher. In my opinion David Oyelowo should have been nominated for his portrayal of Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma. Steve Carell was more of a supporting role as John Dupont in Foxcatcher. He didn’t need to be in the Best Actor category. Last year there could have been up to eight nominees in my opinion. Ralph Fiennes definitely should have been nominated for his role in The Grand Budapest Hotel.

This year we have already had at least three or four actors who probably deserve a Best Actor nominee. Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in Black Mass, Matt Damon as Mark Watney in The Martian, Joeseph Gordon-Levitt as Phillipe Petit in The Walk and Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs in Steve Jobs. A fifth nominee could easy be chosen from from any of the performances coming out in the next three months or from Jake Gyllenhaal from South Paw or Tobey Maguire from Pawn Sacrifice. If you do the math before the end of the year there are easily five more legitimate performances that could or should be nominated. Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant, Bryan Cranston for Trumbo, Tom Hanks for Bridge of Spies or Tom Hardy for Legend.

Just using the last two years is enough to see that there are just  to many films and to many actors who deserve nominations. These awards have been around for to long and as time goes bye things change and the Academy Awards should be able to change with the times. If they can add five nominees to the Best Picture category then they should def add one of more nominee to the Best Actor or another acting category. If one category has a lot of great performances that year then make that category more that year and other categories less that particular year.

Why Marvel hasn’t announced a Hulk stand alone Movie yet.

images (90)hulk-joss-whedon-mark-ruffalo-rumors-untrue-marvel

Mark Ruffalo and Marvel Entertainment studio head Kevin Fiege haven’t been very forth coming with any info on where and when Bruce Banner/The Hulk will show up next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you haven’t seen Avengers:Age of Ultron yet this will be a spoiler to you but, I know most people reading will have already seen the sequel to Avengers. After the huge battle on Sakovia where the Avengers thwarted the evil creation of Bruce Banner and Tony Stark, Ultron, The Hulk flies of in an Avengers Quinn Jet. Off to who knows where. Well maybe this article will shed some light on where and when he’ll show up again in the MCU.

Earlier this summer Mark Ruffalo said that Robert Downey Jr. told him he was gonna be in Captain America: Civil War the 3rd installment of the Captain America franchise. The film is based on the popular story line of the same name from Marvel Comics. Later Ruffalo said that things have changed and he wouldn’t appear in Captain America: Civil War do to future plans by Marvel Entertainment for his character The Hulk. A lot of people have speculated that The Hulk would meat up with The Guardians of the Galaxy. Just recently though Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn stated The Hulk wouldn’t appear in the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. This asks the question what was Ruffalo talking about when he said Marvel had future plans for his character but, he couldn’t say what Kevin Fiege had in store for his character.

Here is my speculation on what is going to become of Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Part of Marvels deal with the character of The Hulk is Universal still has some of the right to the character. This makes it hard for Marvel to do a stand alone film with the character. I believe Marvel is in talks to do 2 stand alone Hulk films. The first with be Planet Hulk and the second will be World War Hulk. The first take place after the events of Captain America: Civil War. The Hulk will ride out his Quinn Jet into outer space and rash land on some far off planet where he will eventually become the leader of the planet. Only after he has to fight his way to the top against a whole slew of monsters on the planet. He meats up with the Guardians of the Galaxy when they crash land on his planet. They are in his film he isn’t in there’s. This allows him and them to get back to Earth in time to help The Avengers fight Thanos in Infinity War Parts 1 and 2. The next two films directed by the brothers. Russo. The Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 with be the next Avengers films and be apart of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Once The Hulk is back on Earth he will take his frustrations on the Avengers in another Universal Pictures/Marvel Entertainment joint film called World War Hulk. Obviously The Avengers will try and control and keep The Hulk under supervision but it doesn’t work and The Hulk goes crazy and try’s to escape and ends up fighting an all out war with The Avengers and the world military forces.This will be the start of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After this who know what Fiege has in store for us. I for one can’t wait to see all these announcements and plans come to fruition. I think this is the most logical place for this character to go in his movies arcs.
