It's not news that people care passionately about Spider-Man. With the X-Men, the wall crawler is easily Marvel's most famous hero, so his inclusion in the successful MCU is a win by any standards. Unfortunately, when Tom Holland takes over, it'll be the third incarnation of Spidey since 2002, and people are getting a weary of the reboot glut.

In response to this dread, the internet has responded by releasing endless rumors, seemingly just to rustle nerd's jimmies. Here's the rundown.

In an interview with the folks running Daredevil on Netflix, /Film uncovered this neat tidbit of information:

Daredevil fans might appreciate one trivia tidbit about why Rosario Dawson’s character on the show is Claire Temple, rather than Linda Carter, aka Night Nurse. The simple reason is that we might see Night Nurse in a Marvel movie! “The feature side had plans for her down the road so that was the only time we ran into a conflict,” DeKnight said. “So we just used another name.”
With Marvel's slate of movies between now and 2019 already announced, it's not hard to figure out which upcoming Marvel hero she'd most likely be hanging out with, btw... it's Doctor Strange.



And since we know Rachel McAdams is in talks for the female lead, we can only cross our fingers and hope for the best!

Devin Faraci from Birth. Death. Movies. recently spoke with Marvel Studios big-wig, Kevin Fiege about how the Wakandan King, Black Panther, will be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“It is a role that he is still in the beginning phases of taking on, it’s a mantle he is only beginning to take on because his father is older.”


It sounds like T'Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman, will be preparing to take over regency of his nation as his father begins to look toward abdication. Of course, Black Panther has a solo movie scheduled for late in Marvel's Phase Three, but we should see him sooner.

“The reason we introduced him in Civil War is because we needed a third party. We needed fresh eyes who wasn’t embedded with the Avengers and who has a very different point of view than either Tony or Steve. We said, ‘We need somebody like Black Panther… why don’t we just use Black Panther?’ That’s how it went in the development process.”




With Thor gone taking care of Asgard, Steve and Tony will look to T'Challa to be their counsel and mediator. Let's hope he's up to the task before any Avengers end up dying.

“Today, pre-Civil War, post-Ultron I think he and his father are saying, ‘A bunch of vibranium just got out of here and wreaked a lot of havoc. Maybe we can’t stay behind these borders anymore, maybe we have to stick our heads out and make at least an attempt to be a part of the rest of the world right now, while at the same time protecting our people.’"


Good luck, Black Panther, you're going to need it.

Ladies and germs, the next teenage white guy to take up the mantle of Peter Parker is none other than nineteen year old Tom Holland. A relative unknown, Holland hails from the UK and has been in such films as The Impossible and TV mini-series Wolf Hall. The film will be directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car), and is slated for release on July 28, 2017.


It looks like Holland has already been practicing for stunts on the film:

Let's be real, this rumor from The Daily Star probably has exactly zero truth to it, so for now let's say there's a slight chance we could be welcoming Queen Bey to the Avengers.  

Apparently, Beyoncé moved from New York to LA earlier this year in order to reboot her acting career, and the MCU might be just the place for her to get her feet wet.  An unnamed executive at Disney was quoted as saying "we would love to have Beyoncé on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel’s existing catalogue of comic book characters."  The characters she's rumored to be in the running for are Boom-Boom, Blink, Tigra, or Hawkeye.



As hot of a Tigra Beyoncé would be, these are all pretty ridiculous options.  If she were to join the MCU, who would you want Beyoncé to play?  One of these ladies?  Someone else?

With appearances from Captain America, Iron Man, Black Panther, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Vision and Spider-Man, Civil War sounds more like Avengers 2.5...

Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.

The epic Marvel fight begins shooting April 1st, with a release date in Summer 2016.
