Marvel used their movies to build up to the big confrontation in Avengers Infinity War. They teased Thanos here and there throughout their other movies so that when he made his big appearance in Infinity War, most people already knew all about him and what a big threat he is.
We are hoping that Marvel starts building up to another of their epic stories after the Thanos situation is resolved in Avengers Infinity War part 2. They have plenty of great line wide story arcs that would translate nicely to the big screen.
Another thing we are hoping for is to start seeing more crossover between the movies and TV shows. Cross your fingers!

This is our individual list of top 5 most anticipated upcoming comic book movies.
Jack must have not slept well because he was very cynical of most of the upcoming movies. On the other hand, I enjoyed Green Lantern and the Ben Affleck Daredevil movie. Keep this in mind when going over our lists.

Jack and Troy from ZiaComics.com get all geeky about the new Marvel storyline, Civil War II.
In the first Civil War series, The point of contention was the Superhero/Mutant Registration Act. For those who aren’t familiar with that story-line, The government wanted all those with mutant powers to register with them. The government wanted to regulate mutant activity to prevent another disaster occurring as a result of a superhero accident or misuse of power. Some mutants disagreed with the Act and refused to register. The Civil War was the pro-registration mutants fighting the anti-registration mutants.
** Warning, spoilers may appear below **
Civil War II is centered around the idea of free will. An Ohio State University student named Ulysses comes in contact with Terrigen mist. The mist gives him powers of precognition (like the 3 pre-cogs in the movie Minority Report). One group of mutants led by Captain Marvel’s includes Captain America (Steve Rogers), War Machine, Spider-Man, Vision, Medusa, Blue Marvel, Winter Soldier, Spectrum, She-Hulk, Hawkeye, and Ant-Man (Scott Lang) wants to use Ulysses to determine crimes and give out punishment BEFORE the actual crime is committed.
A second group of mutants led by Iron Man with teammates Captain America (Sam Wilson), Thor (Jane Foster), Black Panther, Star-Lord, Luke Cage, Hercules, Miss America, Daredevil, Black Widow, Hulk (Amadeus Cho), and Deadpool believes your fate is not pre-determined and punishment cannot be given before a crime.
Ulysses has a precognition about Thanos causing trouble. War Machine and She-Hulk attempt ambush Thanos. During the fight Thanos kills War Machine and critically wounds She-Hulk. Iron Man vows to never let this happen again and kidnaps Ulysses. In response the Inhumans attack Stark Tower but are stopped by the Avengers. To avoid further incident they agree to confront Iron Man together at the secret facility where he has been running tests on Ulysses.
During the confrontation, Ulysses has a vision of Hulk killing the Avengers. Later, former Hulk Bruce Banner is approached by Captain Marvel at his laboratory outside Alpine, Utah.
All of this is in the first two issues. It appears Marvel is taking this story-line seriously. They have already offed fan favorite War Machine and it appears She-Hulk may be following him. Civil War II so far is an all out brawl with both sides believing deeply that they are right. If you like story arcs that make you stop and think whose side you’d be on, this is for you. Some serious thought went into me choosing to side with Iron Man.
I don’t believe a crime can be punished if it is not committed. There is a strong argument about stopping death/catastrophe if possible as well. Whose side are you on?
