Links to news articles and blog posts about the MCU

Captain America: Civil War made $84 million in its first 3 days internationally.  Oh, and it managed to cross the $200 million mark internationally on Sunday!  And all of that is in just under 2/3 of the international territories which it will play.  This thing is probably going to make a billion in a week!

Civil War’s Thursday opening in the U.S. was around $25 million, along with $261.6 million internationally (as of Wednesday).  Wow!

Sharon Stone is making a small appearance in an upcoming Marvel movie.  Any guesses who and in what movie?

Could Captain Marvel appear in Infinity War?  Why yes, I’m pretty sure she will.

According to Kevin Feige, Marvel is “committing” to a Black Widow solo movie.  I would love to see that (but then, I’d love to see any Marvel movie!).

Well, according to Deadline, Marvel’s Most Wanted is a “no-brainer” to be picked up as a series (though THR sort-of disagrees).  However, THR is also suggesting that Agent Carter season 3 is unlikely.  I can’t wait to see Most Wanted, though I will be disappointed if Carter doesn’t come back.  I wrote a defense of Agent Carter season 2 last year; I may do the same thing for season 3 this year.

Anything not related to the MCU that I find interesting

Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine 3 has started adding cast members.

Ben Affleck has now been added to Justice League as executive producer.

According to James Wan himself, he is not planning to leave Aquaman.

Disney finally cast their young Han Solo:  Alden Ehrenreich.

So Lebron James is going to be making Space Jam 2 with Jeremy Lin.  I enjoyed the first one, so I’m curious what will happen with this second one.
