Here is a “prelude trailer” to Captain America: Civil War, starting from the beginning for Iron Man and Captain America and building to footage from the most recent trailer.

If there are any readers living in China, there’s good news:  Captain America: Civil War will receive a Chinese release!

Alfre Woodard has been announced as appearing in Captain America: Civil War.  She already plays Mariah Dillard in Luke Cage, but this character seems to be unrelated.  I’m kind of disappointed about that; if they had coordinated better, they could have found a way to connect the two characters in a minor way.  At the same time, I do get that Civil War started filming well before she was cast in Luke Cage.

Who is Mads Mikkelsen playing in Doctor Strange???  Also, the movie has wrapped filming.

Would you like to see the Spider-Man reboot movie titled “Spider-Man: Homecoming”?  I suppose it does make a certain degree of sense.  Would you prefer one of the second round of rumored titles:  Spider-Man: Coming of Age, Spider-Man: Greatness Awaits, or Spider-Man: Suspended?  I think my preference of the four would be either Homecoming or Coming of Age.  They kind of get worse as you go down the line in my opinion.

Breaking news:  there will be other Marvel characters in the Spider-Man reboot!  In other news, WATER IS WET!!!!!  It should be fairly obvious that with Spider-Man a part of the MCU, there will be Marvel Studios-owned characters appearing

Here is our first look at the Secret Warriors in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3, episode 17, “The Team”:
Presenting, the Secret Warriors:  Yo-Yo, Sir Melts-a-lot, Quake, and Sparky!

Cloak and Dagger is coming to ABC’s Freeform TV!  If it premiers in the fall, that would put Marvel up to potentially five network TV series with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel's Most Wanted, Damage Control, Agent Carter, and Cloak and Dagger.  Wow, that's a lot of TV to watch...  Who else is excited for this?

Anything not related to the MCU that I find interesting

Batman v. Superman dropped almost 70% in its second weekend out.  Ouch.

The Wonder Woman movie had its release date shifted forward a couple weeks, so it will now open on June 2, 2017.  WB also announced 2 untitled DC movies for October 5, 2018, and November 1, 2019.  What do you think of these plans?

Could Cyborg be appearing in The Flash movie in 2018?  That could be pretty cool.

The first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is pretty awesome!  Who’s excited for December?
