The “Avenger’s” summer has been a bit of a mixed bag, as Marvel Studios has been able to adapt its own properties with aplomb.
With its first two films of the new year, Marvel has been keeping a tight lid on the plot details and keeping the cast locked into a particular story line.
But we’ve seen glimpses of what may be in store for the rest of the summer.
For instance, “Captain America: Civil War” is set to have its first big reveal in July and Marvel will be revealing its big cast for the third time this month.
So let’s take a look back at the “Ace” franchise that’s been making the most waves over the past year.
The big one: the Avengers: Infinity War The Infinity War story arc is shaping up to be one of the biggest events in Marvel’s cinematic history.
And it’s being spearheaded by the “Iron Man” director Joe Russo, who is set in his own world where “the Avengers” have been largely absent for the last five years.
The biggest name in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Robert Downey Jr. is set as the titular hero, who’s tasked with taking down the alien threat known as Ultron and bringing the universe back into balance.
However, the team is faced with a new foe, Ultron, who wants to use a cosmic force to control the universe.
It’s the first major plot twist in the new movie, which is also set to see Tony Stark (Robert Downey Sr.) get back in the ring to face off against Ultron.
Marvel’s “Iron Fist” actor, Danny Pudi, will also be joining the fray.
The film will be helmed by Tilda Swinton, who previously played the role of Aunt May in “The Avengers.”
But Swinton’s “Aunt May” wasn’t the only big name involved in the Infinity War movie.
The first Avengers movie also featured several other big-name names, including Elizabeth Olsen (Elizabeth Olsen) as Scarlet Witch, Chris Hemsworth (Chris Hemsworth) as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo (Chris Pratt) as Captain America, and Anthony Mackie (Jaimie Alexander) as Black Panther.
While Marvel is now focusing on “Infinity War,” the first “A” film, “A.I.M.,” will likely be the most anticipated “A”-verse film of all time.
The animated “A,” starring Nick Jonas and Elizabeth Banks, will take place on Earth, in a futuristic version of the future.
And the upcoming film, which “Captain Marvel” helmer Joss Whedon is directing, is slated to be the biggest movie in the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” yet.
That’s right, the Avengers are back and it’s going to be a blockbuster.
The story for “A.”
I.R.M. has been teased since the film’s premiere last summer, and fans are excited to finally see it in action.
But the film is expected to be somewhat more lighthearted and funny than the original “A-Force” films, which were much darker in tone.
That could mean that “A.-Force” fans will have a much better time getting to see the film than those who have been hoping for the full-on Avengers: Age of Ultron movie.
We’ve already seen the first trailer for the film and there’s been some excitement surrounding the trailer for “Iron Sucker,” a movie starring “A&P” actor Mark Ruffalos.
The “Iron” actor will appear as the “super-villain” Sucker Punch, who has been seen as a big villain in the comics.
“Ironman” star and “The Dark Knight Rises” director Michael Keaton, who recently signed on to direct the movie, also revealed that “Iron Fists” director Matthew Vaughn is behind the new trailer.
And “Aquaman” director David Ayer also recently said he will be in the film.
And fans of “Captain Underpants” and “Iron Maidens” are excited about “Aversaries” sequel, which has been in development for years.
We can’t wait to see what this “Aventurian” story can deliver.
The cast is expected the cast for “Infinite War” will include Anthony Macklemore, Zendaya, Michael Rooker, Will Arnett, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Emily VanCamp.
“Ave” director Scott Derrickson, who helmed “Captain Americaball” and the upcoming “Thor: Ragnarok,” is also in the mix for the sequel.
There’s also “Thor” actor Jaimie Anderson as the villainess Black Widow, which we first saw in “Aaven” and then the sequel, “Infant.”
“Infanticide” stars Meryl Streep as the mother of one of “Alyssa’s” children, while “Infatuation” actress Emily Ratajkowski
