9 New Marvel Movies Announced

Unless you've been living under a rock and away from the Internet in the last 24 hours, many of you have probably heard the exciting news about Marvel revealing what they call "Phase 3" in their plans for future films. Marvel released the titles of their upcoming movies throughout 2019. Needless to say, I'm through the roof excited!

Soon after these titles were revealed, they brought out special guests Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America) to announce that the third Captain America film is actually going to be titled "Captain America: The Civil War".

  • Captain America: Civil War - May 6, 2016
  • Doctor Strange - November 4, 2016

Earlier during the week, news spread that Benedict Cumberbatch was going to be cast as Doctor Strange. There is also word that this isn't 100% confirmed, but I really hope it pulls through! Marvel also included that Chadwick Boseman is going to play Black Panther, and Captain Marvel is in fact going to be a woman. Our first female lead Marvel film is finally coming 2018! (But still no Black Widow movie...hmm...)

Also, if you're interested in watching the complete announcement of "Phase 3", here's a video of the exciting event!

"It Gets Better" - Disney & The Trevor Project

One aspect about Disney that I absolutely love is their upmost acceptance and support of all different kinds of people. I have many friends who at one point in their lives didn't feel comfortable with themselves because they felt "different" or unaccepted within their community due to their sexuality. Many of them actually work for Disney, and most of the time they feel more comfortable being open and themselves at work than anywhere else.

The Trevor Project is a non-profit organization focused on suicide prevention among youths a part of the LGTBQ community. Recently, their Youtube channel posted a video of Disney cast members sharing their experience growing up in a community that didn't accept their differences. These cast members remind and encourage viewers that no matter how hard you might be currently struggling with your identity or feeling accepted, it does get better.

If you or a friend ever needs help, feel free to call The Trevor Lifeline: 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386). It's 100% free and confidential and available all day, every day.
