Yesterday, Marvel Studios released the second full length trailer for Captain America: Civil War, which begins the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At the very end we got a nice surprise, but there was so much more to the trailer. So, watch the trailer – and come back to discuss the trailer with me!

The following is a season review of Marvel’s Agent Carter, available on ABC and Netflix Denmark.
Marvel’s Agent Carter started as a Marvel One-Shot about the S.S.R. Agent Peggy Carter, it was a spin-off of Captain America: The First Avenger. Not unlike Agent Coulson, Peggy Carter has been known to show up in various capacities in Marvel Cinematic Universe films, even those that have little to do with Captain America. But the ABC show is the character’s playground, and it is so refreshing to see a show like this one actually have a fair bit of success, at least critically.

Hey! I haven’t written a lot of posts on comic books and specifically Marvel Comics! So this week’s Marvelous Monday is all about comic books! What am I reading? What should you read? Which storylines do I need to catch up on? Let’s check it out.
The following is a spoiler free review of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. The original review was more positive, but I still like the film.
Marvel’s The Avengers is one of the biggest films for comic book nerds across the globe. But with the incredibly successful first Avengers outing in mind, could Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige surprise and wow us again? Well, yes and no. Whedon makes some superhero movie-sins, but does give us visual spectacle.
On Wednesday, the 22nd of April, I’ll be seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron in Taastrup, Denmark, and I cannot wait. So for this week’s Marvelous Monday I’ve chosen to highlight the questions I have about this film going in. Think of it as some sort of preview.
On this, the sixth ‘installment’ of I’m Jeffrey Rex’ Marvelous Monday, I’ve decided to preview, and talk about, the fandom madness that will become reality in 2016. The thing is that DC isn’t the only comic book company releasing a ‘versus’ film in 2016. On the 6th of May 2016 Marvel Studios releases Captain America: Civil War, which will be an adaptation of the general idea behind the polarizing comic book crossover event ‘Civil War’ by Mark Millar & Steve McNiven.
So far I’ve tiptoed around the fact of the matter that SPOILERS Civil War has been, and will be, about differing opinions or ideologies – specifically Captain America and Iron Man not seeing eye to eye. When Marvel released their Phase 3 lineup they hyped this movie up a lot, and it is the movie I’m most excited about in the MCU, and they even had Downey Jr. and Evans standing in front of eachother – ready to battle. A fun little moment for the fans, but also a preview of what will, no doubt, make the studio a lot of money.
Recently, I was reminded of the marketing ploy that Twilight used to reel in fandoms – Team Edward and Team Jacob. This was a genius move, and I expect Marvel to do the same thing. Team Stark and Team Rogers – which will, in truth, be Team Downey vs. Team Evans. This should help them reel in fanboys/-girls of the actors, as well as us comic book nerds – the ones that day and night discuss who’s the better character. But before I move on, do note that I won’t pull any punches while talking about the Civil War comic book – expect some spoilers. And at the end of this post I’ll tell you with which character my allegiance lies.
