Marvel Cinematic Universe – Phase 3
Sitting at my desk at work, my co worker calls me to ask me if its true that Norman Reedus died and if they cancelled The Walking Dead. My initial thought was WHAT? Then I thought, they can’t kill him yet. She asked me to check online, which I was already doing, only to get sidetracked by the beginning of Marvel’s press announcement.
I start geeking out and having what Tom Lenk calls Nerdgasms as I’m following the news as its being told at El Capitan Theater in Hollywood. My eyes widening hoping for more than just movie release dates and titles. I don’t remember when it happened, but my co worker was talking to me and I hung up on her. This is more important!

Now THAT’S more like it!
Then the casting announcement of Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa and a concept art photo for good measure:
I remember running to my boss who is a total geek herself to tell her what I just read. We geeked out, a normal thing for us, before we continued our work. I have my issues with some of the things announced, specifically the use of Captain Marvel as opposed to the better named Ms. Marvel, but more on that in the future. I am glad it’s Carol Danvers though…. Phew!
With a slate going all the way until 2019, and fan favorites now confirmed to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we are definitely in for a wild ride, and I for one cannot wait!
