Captain Marvel’s success has finally given Marvel the incentive to start making female-led superhero movies. After Captain Marvel, Black Widow will be the next in line movie of the same genre. But the sequel to Captain Marvel, the one that started it all, titled as Captain Marvel 2, will also be something that the fans will want to watch once the trailer of the movie drops. But as we all know, Marvel and Disney have mastered the art of keeping the hype at record high levels using nothing but hear-say and spreading rumors that they will neither confirm nor deny to be true. The most recent one states that Jane Foster’s Thor will be seen in the new Captain Marvel 2 movie. Presenting – Captain Marvel 2 will reportedly feature a cameo of Jane Foster’s Thor!!
The saga that started more than 10 years ago with Iron Man in 2008 has come to a definitive conclusion with Avengers: Endgame. But it is not the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but just the final pages of a chapter that is about to be closed and give rise to a new one. A new generation of superheroes will now take the flag from the previous generation and hold the torch for the next couple of years to come. Captain Marvel will play a vital role in that endeavor. And not just her, a lot of other women characters are also going to be part of the new movement.
Natalie Portman plays Jane Foster in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She played the role twice in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. After that due to creative differences and Portman’s fallout with Marvel Studios led to Jane Foster effectively exiting the Marvel Cinematic Universe! But she was not gone for good. Another deal with the Studio led to the return of Portman as Jane Foster, a role she will reprise in Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth Thor movie.
Jane Foster coming to Captain Marvel 2 for a cameo suggests a grander plan being set in motion by Marvel and Disney. It looks like Marvel is trying to bring the A-Force to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A lot of the superheroes that form the all-female Avengers team that first appeared in Secret Wars already exist. Black Widow and Jane Foster are already a part of the official Marvel core character roster. Ms. Marvel aka Kamala Khan and She-Hulk are reportedly going to be a part of the future Marvel movie slates. Storm can also join in because the X-Men are officially Disney property now. Things are starting to look up for Marvel.
A-Force did not sell well with the comic book readers and the limited-run issues were soon canceled and taken off of the shelves due to poor sales margins and very little revenue. But Marvel is sure that they can turn the all-women superhero team around and is ready to give them another shot in the movies. Let us see how far they go on this one.
The Last Solo Marvel movie to be released under the Disney banner is Spider-Man: Far From Home. The movie was released on the 2nd of November, 2018. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Peter Parker’s relaxing European vacation takes an unexpected turn when Nick Fury shows up in his hotel room to recruit him for a mission. The world is in danger as four massive elemental creatures — each representing Earth, air, water and fire — emerge from a hole torn in the universe. Parker soon finds himself donning the Spider-Man suit to help Fury and fellow superhero Mysterio stop the evil entities from wreaking havoc across the continent.
Avengers: Endgame released on the 26th of April, 2019. The official film synopsis of the movie has been released and it states:
“After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War, the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.”
