As Marvel enters Phase 3 of its cinematic universe, the superhero juggernaut will be introducing a lot of new characters to its roster. In a na interview with IGN, Marvel head Kevin Feige had something to say about how they're handling Doctor Strange,

For some reason people sometimes talked about how we're not doing an origin story, we're bored of origin stories. I think people are bored of origin stories they've seen before or origin stories that are overly familiar... Doctor Strange has one of the best, most classic, most unique origin stories of any hero we have, so why wouldn't we do that? That was sort of always the plan. How you tell that origin, perhaps there are ways to twist it or play with that, but for the most part, it's a gift when the comics have something with such clarity of story and of character. That doesn't always happen in the comics, and when it does, you use it.

Marvel's new take on the Spider-Man seems to highlight this point. Rumors are suggesting that Peter Parker will be a year into his web slinging when he's introduced in Captain America: Civil War next year. Audiences have already watched Uncle Ben's death twice since 2002, and frankly no one wnats to hear "with great power, comes great responsibility" ever again.

Maybe the origin story isn't dead. Maybe it's just time to stop showing Spider-Man and Batman's.

This official Marvel Cinematic Universe prelude comic situates Hank Pym (AKA Michael Douglas as Ant-Man), as a scientist working with Peggy Carter in the Cold War. Our best guess: Dr. Pym was once a SHIELD agent. Maybe he even started the Ultron program before Tony and Bruce stumbled onto it years later.

With the soft lighting, the witty banter and the slight sexualization of misogyny Agent Carter appears to be half Alias, and half Double Indemnity. Fingers crossed it'll bring the best of both instead of the worst.
