Marvel Studios released the second trailer for Captain America: Civil War, the first film from Phase III of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Just like in the comic books, the Avengers aren’t getting along, just like the ever-recurring Avengers v. X-Men stories, and like the similar themed Batman v. Superman from the DC Universe.  The bickering and inability of a team of super “heroes” to resolve differences shows why hero worship isn’t a good thing.  Nice role models!  Sure, the good guys fighting good guys storyline has been around as long as the superheroes themselves, but Marvel has been dwelling on this since early in Phase I.  So if you think the Captain America vs. Iron Man feud is getting old, you’re not the only one.  But the real enemy is Thanos, and war against Thanos is on its way in this new Phase of films.

What would be more fun to see?  How about the studios get their acts together and have the Avengers battle the X-Men?  If Spider-man–who makes a welcome appearance in the latest trailer shown below–can make the studio leap, let’s show fans what can really be done.  And check out that new Spidey-suit.  Finally, a suit that looks as great as we imagined it from the comic books.

If you’re scratching your head over the Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III distinctions, how about a quick walk through Marvel’s plans.  Phase I includes, in order, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avengers, and The Avengers (or Avengers: Assemble in the UK).  This was the introduction of characters, S.H.I.E.L.D. and HYDRA, and revolved around the Tesseract, which is one of the Infinity Stones.

Baloo and Mowgli

In case you missed the Super Bowl this past Sunday and haven’t caught up on the movie trailers that aired, we’ve stacked 15 of them up here at borg.com for your viewing pleasure.  Plus we’ve added The Lobster–a darkly wacky looking film that we can’t quite categorize yet.  Is it science fiction?  Fantasy?  You be the judge.  It may just be on that short list of quirky British comedies that manage to work (or not).  Plus it has Rachael Weisz and Ben Whishaw so that’s something.

Let’s start with what looks like the best of the bunch, a live-action reboot of The Jungle Book:

The Secret Life of Pets

X-Men Apocalypse

Rogue One clip

Our annual “All the Movies You’ll Want to See…” series has been one of the most viewed of all of our entries at borg.com each year.  So this year we again scoured Hollywood and its publicity machine for as many genre films coming out in 2016 as have been disclosed.  Usually we select the 24 that look like the biggest hits, but we’re going all out for 2016.  The result is a whopping 48 movies, many you’ll probably want to see in the theater or catch on video.  We bet you’ll find a bunch below you’ve never heard of.  Bookmark this now for your 2016 calendar!

Most coming out in the second half of 2016 don’t even have posters released yet, but many do.  We’ve included descriptions and key cast so you can start planning accordingly.

What do we think will be the biggest hits of the year?  How about Star Wars: Rogue One?  Or Star Trek Beyond?  You’ve heard endlessly about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but 2016 will also see Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, and X-Men: Apocalypse.  There’s even a handful of Westerns, with The Hateful 8, Jane Got a Gun, and another remake of The Magnificent Seven heading our way.

Black Panther

In a press briefing in Los Angeles today, Marvel Studios laid out the release dates and titles for the next eleven movies in the “Marvel Cinematic Universe,” what they are referring to as Phase 3.  While rumors continue to circulate that Benedict Cumberbatch will be tapped to play Doctor Strange, the studio introduced the actor who will play Black Panther on the big screen, Chadwick Boseman, who played Jackie Robinson in last year’s film 42.  We’ll see Boseman first don the Panther suit in the third Captain America movie, Captain America: Civil War, coming in 2016.

And in the past hour Marvel released a new scene from Avengers: Age of Ultron, previewed below after the break.

The studio also revealed the costume design for Black Panther (above) in a poster released at the press event, attended by Boseman, Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr. and Captain America Chris Evans.
