Recently a very cleverly made clip was released by Marvel. This half a minute clip features someone who could be recognized quite easily from early Marvel movies like “Iron Man” and “Iron Man 2.” Remember Christine Everhart, the Vanity Fair reporter who had a little adventure with Tony Stark in “Iron Man” and was about to interview Justin Hammer in “Iron Man 2” when she dumped the interview to cover Tony racing? The same Christine Everhart is shown to be the host of a new show called “News Front” where she covers the outcome of what happened when the “Avengers” took down Ultron. She also makes sure to touch up a little on a cyber criminal called Scott Lang.
According to Digital Spy, Leslie Bibb was said to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after her “Iron Man” and “Iron Man 2” stint but not much details were known about it until now.
Turns out her role in the MCU is of quite significance. The little clip that just dropped proves to be a promotional tool for the studio’s upcoming feature “Ant-Man” and also highlights events from “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Now the clip is such that it starts with Christine announcing what the show’s next episode’s topic would be.
The first thing she mentions is the state in which the fictional nation of Sokovia where the “Avengers” fought megalomaniac Ultron is in right now.
Second thing is a little story on Scott Lang, a cyber criminal who will be released from a penitentiary. What should be noted that the reason why “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is mentioned in the clip is because that shows what kind of destruction does an average “Avengers” mission brings with it. It is because of the same destruction that the “Avengers” bring, forces world leaders to draft a Superhero Registration Act and ask superheroes to register with it. The events that follow the initiation of Superhero Registration Act ends up as Civil War and will serve as the story of “Captain America: Civil War”.
As far as Scott Lang is concerned, mentioning his name just adds more publicity to the studio’s upcoming release and further helps in generating interest amongst fans as Scott seeks redemption under the guidance of Dr. Hank Pym.
So in a way, Marvel has smartly brought together three movies namely “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Ant-Man” and “Captain America: Civil War” together in one clip and hinted at what fans can expect in the studio’s future movies.
