The forthcoming film ties up the events from several Marvel Universe (MU) films and, if you’ve missed any of them, black has a selection of MU films for binge watching.
“This month, black offers an epic marathon for Marvel Universe fans”, says black’s public relations manager, Precious Nkabinde. “If you want to know how Thanos wiped out half of all life in the universe with a single finger snap, we have you covered.”
Here are the latest Marvel movies you need to catch up with to be in the loop:
1. Doctor Strange
When elite surgeon Dr. Steven Strange loses the use of his hands in a car accident, he desperately searches for a cure. When traditional medicine fails him, he seeks out a former patient he couldn’t treat, and he is told the answer to his problem lies in the occult. This leads him to discovering a cult of magicians who not only teach healing powers to him, they reveal that they’re the last line of defence against dark forces seeking to bring supernatural chaos to earth. Dr Strange soon becomes one of the world’s most powerful sorcerers, tasked with defending humankind.
2. Ant-Man and the Wasp
Scott Lang (Ant-Man) is under house arrest for the crimes he committed in the name of the greater good in Captain America: Civil War. He’s also trying to balance his current situation with his efforts to be the best father he can. However, when a new powerful enemy emerges and Scott is needed by his mentors – Hope van Dyne (The Wasp) and Dr Hank Pym – he needs to decide whether to once again put his life at risk as the Ant-Man.
3. Thor Ragnarok
The mythical city of Asgard is under threat from the all-powerful goddess of death, Hela and in dire need of its champion. But Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the galaxy forced to fight in gladiatorial contests – against his Avenger team mate, the Hulk. The thunder god soon finds himself in a race against time to escape and, with the help of allies (both old and new), prevent Asgard and its people from being destroyed.
4. Black Panther
Wakanda is a hidden and technologically advanced African nation with an indestructible metal known as vibranium. Its prince, T’Challa, returns home after the death of his father to take his place as the new rightful king. However, his plan is thwarted as he faces many enemies while the fate of his nation hangs by a thread. T’Challa dons the mantel of Black Panther and with the help of his allies, he fights for the safety of his people and Wakanda.
5. Avengers Infinity War
The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of the Avengers as the evil titan Thanos is determined to collect all six Infinity Stones, which will allow him to wipe out half of all life in the universe with a snap of his fingers.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – The Fate of Atlantis
Ubisoft has announced the release date for the episodes of the second post-launch story arc of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, The Fate of Atlantis. The first episode, Fields of Elysium, will release on April 23 across all available platforms. Throughout Fields of Elysium and the following two episodes, players will continue their Odyssey in the Greek afterlife to uncover the great mysteries that lie within the ancient realms of the gods.
Click through to watch the trailer, and to read about the downloadable content.
As the story of Fields of Elysium unfolds, players traverse the paradise of Elysium, a realm of great beauty, to reveal sinister secrets while facing against the might of the Isu. Players encounter both new factions and familiar characters, and acquire new legendary weapons and gear.
Fields of Elysium also introduces new Ability enhancements, which modify existing abilities to alter their function, giving players the opportunity to further fine-tune their playstyles. Ability enhancements are divided into each branch of the skill tree – Hunter, Warrior and Assassin – and several are introduced in each episode, starting with Ares Bull Charge, Might of Artemis, Kronos Time Warp and Ares Madness in Fields of Elysium.
Following the first story arc, Legacy of the First Blade, The Fate of Atlantis sees our hero confront deities, encounter terrifying beasts of myth, and forge new bonds with a colourful cast of characters. After Fields of Elysium releases on April 23, the second episode, Torment of Hades, and the third episode, Judgment of Atlantis, will complete the second story arc mid-2019 on all available platforms.
The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey post-launch plan is the biggest and most ambitious in the franchise, and Season Pass owners will be able to access two major episodic storylines, Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis. Players can dive into new episodes as they premiere, or experience the epic adventures in their entirety once all episodes are available. The Season Pass also includes Assassin’s Creed® III Remastered and Assassin’s Creed® Liberation Remastered, which released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on 29 March 2019.
In order to play The Fate of Atlantis, players will have two different options:
- Following the main game, players will have to complete the questline Between Two Worlds, the mythological main game story arc, and Heir of Memories, the Lost Tales of Greece questline that is available after completing the former questline. Finally, they must have reached character level 28 or above.
- Otherwise, players will be able to use a shortcut created specifically for those who would like to play The Fate of Atlantis and who do not fulfill all the above conditions. Thanks to this shortcut, players will enter Greece level 52 with preset Abilities and resources enabling them to start their adventure into the afterlife with the Lost Tales of Greece questline Heir of Memories. They will also have the opportunity to choose their hero. However, contrary to the previous option – players’ progression using the shortcut will not carry over to the main game save, and they will not be able to obtain achievements.
