Marvel Everywhere

Since the year 2009, when Disney took over the Marvel universe, more and more classic comic book characters find their way on the big screen. Iron Man, the Hulk, Captain America, Thor and the whole bunch of superheroes saving the Earth (The Avengers), and even Nick Fury himself (he was revived in an excellent way by one of my favorite actors, Samuel L. Jackson) have appeared in movies and TV shows that take place in the Marvel universe.

Recent additions to the Marvel filmography – the new Thor and Captain America movies – and the developments in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show suggest a new, darker and more action packed Avengers movie, with Hydra back in the picture.

The characters brought to life by Stan Lee (the father of the Avengers and many more popular comic book characters) have inspired many game developers, content creators, designers and even casino game developers in the world (although I think the Marvel themed slot machines I appreciate so much were designed as ordered by Marvel). I have met Marvel-inspired slot machines in the offer of two casino games developer companies – Microgaming, a company based in the UK that has provided casino games to operations like Europalace or the Royal Vegas, and Playtech, a company based in Israel, both high rated providers with many games in their offer.

(By the way, Europalace offers a bonus to new players that’s worth mentioning: $500 on the first two deposits made by players in their casino account.)

Slot machines are among the most popular casino games, and the latest Marvel movies were quite popular, too – this must be the reason why the two were combined, bringing characters like The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, the whole Avengers team, the X-men, The Amazing Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four were introduced in online and real life casinos.

It would be interesting to think of what comes next in the Marvel universe. The creators of the above mentioned movies and TV shows (especially Joss Whedon, director of the Avengers movie and executive producer of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series) have already made the connection between the Avengers movie, the latest Thor movie and the series (when the team led by Agent Coulson cleans up after the events of London). I haven’t seen The Winter Soldier yet, so I can’t speak of correlations there. Where will all these events lead and how does Ultron come into the picture? (For those less geek out there: Ultron is an AI with high energy, indestructible body and a really bad temper).

Until then we have to make do with what we have: the latest adventures of Thor and Captain America, a bunch of video games, animations, and yes – even casino games to play with.

If there is one thing that has changed the way we look at the world it would be the internet, it has allowed us to connect to people all over the world and share anything we want with them. Any kind of film, music or writing is available to you from a simple search. Websites such as Reddit show this in its best light as they allow people to post links to things spread around the internet, you then vote to say if that is interesting, creative or fun. The ones with the most votes then get to the front page of the site, this changes all the time so there are new things to explore. Games are often what people go online for and these days actual browser games have become so impressive, with many different genres being represented.

Casino games however are by far the most popular type of browser game there is, these sites allow you to play from hundreds of different games that are based on what you would find in a real casino. There is such a large number of games you might wonder where you should start when you first start playing, however there are some classics that are very popular with everyone who plays casino games. These games include the likes of Roulette and Poker, Blackjack is another big favourite because of the simplicity of the game. All you have to do is draw cards until you are as close to or on 21 as you can be, when you get your starting hand you bet on if you think you will do well or not at drawing cards then you have to play against what the dealer has.

What the Fug is Going on with Marvel?!

For a company, now paired with Disney, Marvel seems to be “accidentally” letting a lot slip about the future (“Phase II” & “Phase III”) of their multi-million dollar franchise. Oh, right, I should say this now: SPOILER ALERT! As in, what follows may contain SPOILERS, or maybe not. Maybe everyone is wrong and Marvel is in on the joke; but just be warned. PLAUSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!

First, let’s talk turkey–and by “turkey”, I mean Iron Man 3. Just about a week before the new Super Bowl Teaser trailer dropped, Marvel had been picking up the pieces of a major “Phase II” leak regarding the series. And the leak was this:

Probably doesn’t look like much, but what it is (allegedly) is a tell-all regarding the film’s end. As Marvel had announced, director James Gunn will be at the helm for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film (which I know almost nothing about other than it involves Thanos and a Rocket Raccoon). The catch here is that the finale of the Iron Man 3 film will involve Tony Stark heading to (fucking) Space to team up with the Guardians, pushing forward his story in Phase II. Surprising? True? Who knows! But sources say: YES! And Marvel is genuinely peeved.

But that’s not all. As Marvel is a company that likes to plan entire future franchises way ahead of time (not unlike Pixar), they have many many secrets on the table and aren’t so great at keeping them there. The next giant SPOILER news regards “Phase III” and the Universe post Avengers 2. According to an info leak, actor Mark Ruffalo will be getting his own HULK movie which will follow the story line of Planet Hulk (if you’re not already in the know, look it up. Click the link, or check out the animated movie on Netflix).

While the news may not seem like a huge cataclysmic bombshell of information, it seems to be getting on Marvel’s tits quite a bit. They’re looking to get litigious and whatnot, so we can only assume there is some truth to these rumors.

Oh, also…before I go, Kevin Smith is making a CLERKS 3Let that sink in for a while…
