Limber Up As Red Guardian Joins the Contest – Available NOW on Marvel Contest of Champions

He’s the Soviet equivalent of Captain America – a symbol of Russia’s strength and patriotism. Limber up and take down your adversary with Red Guardian as heenters The Battlerealm in Kabam’s MARVEL Contest of Champions. His character design is inspired by Marvel Studios’ Black Widow in theaters on November 6th.

Alexei Shostakov was one of the Soviet Union’s most acclaimed pilots, crediting them with air supremacy over the skies of Stalingrad and Kursk during World War II and thus granting him national recognition. As the Cold War flared, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev determined the Soviet Union needed its own equivalent to Captain America and seeing Shostakov’s popularity, chose him to fill that role. The KGB then faked his death, training him in secret and turning him into a master of hand-to-hand combat and a highly skilled athlete.

Disney Announces New Movie Releases Dates Shifting Marvel’s Plans

With COVID-19 closing down theaters, Disney has been forced to shift the release dates of numerous films, impacting the future of Marvel Studios as well.

The movie studio has announced that Black Widow will now arrive on November 6, 2020, while The Eternals will be released on February 12, 2021.

What’s interesting is this signals Disney’s expectations that things will be somewhat back to normal in November. The earliest film on their new release schedule is in June 2020 and many areas haven’t predicted issues into May.

It is also pulling the film Artemis Fowl from theaters and it will debut exclusively on Disney+ in the future.

More “comic” films under the Disney umbrella have been pushed. The King’s Man which is a 20th Century Studios film will release in September 2020. That film is a spin-off of Kingsman based on the comic series. Empty Man, another 20th Century Studios film based on the BOOM! Studios‘ series, will be released on August 7, 2020.

It’s Twins for Wanda and Vision?

Marvel released a teaser video showing off the upcoming shows The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki. While there were a lot of new things to see, it’s a scene about 22 seconds in that has us excited.

WandaVision shows off Wanda in various incarnations, including her classic red costume, in a domestic setting. It gives off a vibe of the acclaimed comics series The Vision by Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta. Wanda has reality-warping powers and the show seems to indicate we may see the use of those powers (and maybe their going out of control) during her grieving the Vision.

In some of it, she looks pregnant and rumors have swirled that the show would feature the “birth” and debut of her comics “kids” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In the teaser video, it seems like that just might be the case.

At about 22 seconds in we see Wanda and Vision looking proud over two pieces of furniture and then quickly two pacifiers are spit into the air.

Will we be seeing the twins Tommy and Billy? We’ll have to wait and see when WandaVision debuts on Disney+ later this year.
