中国日报网 2019-04-23 14:44

2019年度最受期待的漫威大片《复仇者联盟4:终局之战》将于明日零点在中国内地上映,比北美提前两天。

这部电影是漫威电影宇宙开创以来的第22部电影,这个庞大的电影宇宙中蕴藏着无数超级英雄:钢铁侠、美国队长、蜘蛛侠、雷神、黑豹……

如果你是漫威死忠粉,那你对漫威的历史一定相当了解,但如果你是漫威小白,此时不补课更待何时?敲黑板,划重点啦!

 

剧透警告!下面内容将提到部分漫威电影的情节

 

What is the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
漫威电影宇宙到底是个啥?

 

The Marvel Cinematic Universe - or MCU for short - is the shared place where all 22 films featuring the comic book characters are set.

漫威电影宇宙(简称MCU)是所有22部包含漫威漫画人物的电影所共享的空间。

Each tells its own distinct story but also connects with other films in the MCU, to tell an overarching tale. It's a technique Marvel Comics pioneer Stan Lee also used in his comics.

每部电影都讲述了一个独特的故事,但是又和漫威宇宙的其他电影存在着关联,合在一起就是一个宏大的故事。漫威漫画的先驱人物斯坦·李也曾经将这一技巧用于他的漫画中。

overarching[,əʊvər'ɑːtʃɪŋ]: adj. 首要的;支配一切的;包罗万象的

 

The MCU is the most successful film franchise of all time, making more than $18.2bn to date.

漫威电影宇宙是有史以来最成功的电影系列,迄今为止已经创收超182亿美元(1221亿元人民币)。

 

Why did Marvel start with these characters?
漫威电影宇宙是怎么诞生的?

 

In 2007, Marvel was recovering from bankruptcy and had sold off the film rights to some of the company's most popular characters like the X-Men and Spider-Man.

2007年,漫威摆脱了破产危机,卖掉了公司最受欢迎的一些角色(比如X战警和蜘蛛侠)的电影版权。

Marvel still owned the superheroes who form the core Avengers team - Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor and Captain America - so used the early MCU films to introduce these heroes.

漫威仍然拥有复仇者联盟核心团队的超级英雄——钢铁侠、绿巨人、雷神和美国队长,早期的漫威宇宙电影就是在介绍这些超级英雄。

 

 

Marvel then brought these characters together for the crossover film Avengers Assemble.

随后,漫威又将这些人物聚集到一起,拍摄了“混搭联动”的《复仇者联盟》。

The crossover was planned from the very beginning.

这种“混搭联动”从一开始就设计好了。

The first MCU film released, Iron Man, included a post-credits scene in which Samuel L Jackson's super spy Nick Fury gives the first mention of the Avengers.

第一部漫威宇宙电影《钢铁侠》的片尾彩蛋中可以看到塞缪尔·L·杰克逊饰演的超级特工尼克·弗瑞第一次提到了复仇者联盟。

 

What order should I watch the films in?
怎样才是漫威宇宙电影的正确打开方式?

 

We suggest you watch the films in chronological order, rather than the order in which the films were released.

建议你按年代顺序而不是电影上映顺序来看漫威宇宙的电影。

 

下面这张图让你一目了然:

 

 

I don't have time to watch all the films! What can I skip?
这么多电影看不过来!哪些电影可以跳过去不看?

 

Endgame is the finale of a series of 22 films.

《终局之战》是22部系列电影的最后一部。

But, don't worry, you don't need to watch every single one to be fully prepared.

不过别担心,你不需要每部电影都补看。

Here are the 10 films you could skip and still understand the basics of Endgame.

下面这10部电影就算不看,你也能领会终局之战的要义:

 

The Incredible Hulk - you'll learn all you need to know about the key characters here in Avengers Assemble
《无敌浩克》:看《复仇者联盟》第一部就能了解主要角色。

Thor - ditto
《雷神》:同上。

Thor: The Dark World - you don't need to see this to get the gist of Avengers: Age of Ultron
《雷神2:黑暗世界》:不看这个你也能看懂《复仇者联盟2:奥创纪元》。

Iron Man 2 - Scarlett Johansson fans may not want to skip this one, as it marks her entry into the MCU
《钢铁侠2》:斯嘉丽·约翰逊的粉丝可能不想错过这一部,因为该片是她在漫威宇宙的首次亮相。

Iron Man 3 - Robert Downey Jr is always watchable, but skipping this won't leave you confused
《钢铁侠3》:小罗伯特·唐尼是很有看点,但不看这部电影也不会让你找不着北。

Ant-Man - Scott Lang and his superpowers get introduced all over again in Captain America: Civil War
《蚁人》:斯科特·朗和他的超能力在《美国队长3:内战》中会重新介绍一遍。

Doctor Strange - all you really need to know is this film introduces the Time Stone.
《奇异博士》:这部电影中你所需要知道的只有时间宝石。

Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2 - there's some nice character development here, but it won't give you new information on the final battle
《银河护卫队2》:人物发展刻画得不错,但不会提供新信息帮你了解终局之战。

Black Panther - we hesitate to suggest you skip this Oscar-winning film, as it's one of the MCU's best, but other than introducing Wakanda as a location, you'll get most of the relevant information about the characters introduced here in Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War
《黑豹》:在建议你跳过这部电影时我们犹豫了一下,因为它毕竟获得了奥斯卡奖,也是漫威电影宇宙最优秀的影片之一,但是除了介绍瓦坎达王国外,大部分相关信息都可以从《美国队长3:内战》《复仇者联盟3:无限战争》中得到。

Captain Marvel - again, watch this if you can but if you're pushed for time, all you really need to know is that Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) got her powers from the Space Stone and she's going to be important to the final battle in Endgame. Also, the man who put together the Avengers - Nick Fury - lost his eye to an alien disguised as a cat.
《惊奇队长》:如果有时间你可以看,如果没时间你只需要知道卡罗尔·丹弗斯(布丽·拉尔森饰演)从空间宝石中获得超能力,她将在终局之战中发挥重要作用。还有,复仇者联盟的组织者尼克·弗瑞的眼睛是被一个伪装成猫的外星人弄瞎的。

 

What's so important about Avengers: Endgame?
《终局之战》为什么这么重要?

 

Marvel's plans for its films are structured in phases, with each one ending with an Avengers crossover movie.

漫威的电影计划分成多个阶段,每个阶段都以一部复仇者联盟电影终结。

Avengers Assemble spelt the end of Phase One, and Age of Ultron brought Phase Two to a close.

《复仇者联盟》第一部标志着第一阶段的结束,《复仇者联盟2:奥创纪元》给第二阶段画上了句号。

Endgame not only ends Phase 3 but also wraps up the series of 22 films that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is now calling The Infinity Saga.

《终局之战》不但标志着第三阶段的结束,还是漫威影业总裁凯文·费奇现在所说的22部系列电影所在的无限传奇时代的终结篇。

The new title for the first three phases of the MCU references their overarching story, which sees the gathering of the Infinity Stones (six powerful gems that grant their owner great power) and the war against the mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin).

漫威电影宇宙前三个阶段的新称号“无限传奇时代”所指的宏大故事背景包括无限宝石(6颗能赋予拥有者强大力量的宝石)的收集和对抗疯狂灭霸(乔什·布洛林饰演)的战争。

Endgame will see the remaining Avengers try and rescue everyone, after villain Thanos got hold of all the Infinity Stones and wiped out half of all living things with a snap of his fingers in last year's Avengers: Infinity War.

在终局之战中,余下的复仇者将试图去拯救所有人。去年上映的《复仇者联盟3:无限战争》中,灭霸拿到了所有的无限宝石并用一个响指毁灭了宇宙中的一半生命。

 

 

All bets are off as to who makes it to the finish line in Endgame, as it also coincides with the end of the contracts of some of the biggest Marvel stars.

人们不知道谁能撑到最后,因为与此同时一些漫威大牌明星的合同正好到期。

all bets are off: 世事难料

 

It's been widely reported that Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Robert Downey Jr (Tony Stark/Iron Man) have come to the end of their contracts.

据多家媒体报道,克里斯·埃文斯(美国队长)、克里斯·海姆斯沃斯(雷神)和小罗伯特·唐尼(钢铁侠)的合同都已经到期。

There's also been speculation that their Marvel co-stars Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romonova/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk) have also reached the end of their tenure at the studio.

还有人猜测斯嘉丽·约翰逊(黑寡妇)、杰瑞米·雷纳(鹰眼)和马克·鲁法洛(绿巨人)的合同也到期了。

 

 

Though a solo Black Widow film is reported to be in the works, it could be a prequel, so there is no guarantee Johansson's character survives.

尽管有报道称《黑寡妇》电影正在筹备当中,但这可能是个前传,所以不能保证斯嘉丽·约翰逊的角色能活到最后。

One thing is for sure though - whatever happens, it will take time for Endgame's story to unfold.

不过有一件事是肯定的——不管会发生什么,终局之战的故事将会徐徐展开。

It's the longest entry in the MCU so far, clocking in at three hours and two minutes. That's the same length as the first instalment in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy, An Unexpected Journey (2012).

这是漫威电影宇宙迄今为止最长的电影,片长达3小时2分钟,与彼得·杰克逊导演的《霍比特人》三部曲第一部《意外之旅》(2012年)的片长相当。

 

What's the future of the MCU?
漫威电影宇宙未来将如何发展?

 

We can expect a major shake-up of the MCU, in the wake of Endgame.

我们预期终局之战后,漫威电影宇宙将迎来大洗牌。

Phase Four begins with the release of Spider-Man: Far from Home on July 5 2019.

第四阶段将以2019年7月5日上映的《蜘蛛侠:英雄远征》开始。

According to producer Amy Pascal, the film "will start a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story".

据制片人艾米·帕斯卡尔说,该片的故事“将从终局之战结束后几分钟开始讲起”。

Tom Holland's Spidey was one of many heroes wiped out in Thanos's Snap in Infinity War, but given his starring role in this film, we can expect he'll be alive and well before the Endgame credits roll.

汤姆·赫兰德饰演的蜘蛛侠是《无限战争》中灭霸响指毁灭的众多英雄之一,但考虑到蜘蛛侠的新片,我们预计他在终结之战结束时会活得好好的。

 

 

New films involving other supposedly dead characters have also been confirmed for Phase Four.

第四阶段的新片中还涉及了一些原本已经死掉的角色。

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange will return for a sequel at "some point in the future".

漫威影业总裁凯文·费奇已证实,本尼迪克特·康伯巴奇饰演的奇异博士将在“未来的某个时候”回归续集。

Chadwick Boseman is also likely to recover from his disintegration in time for Black Panther 2.

查德维克·博斯曼也很可能死而复生,继续拍摄《黑豹2》。

We also know a third Guardians of the Galaxy film has been confirmed, but we don't know which Guardians will return for it. At the end of Infinity War, Bradley Cooper's Rocket and Karen Gillan's Nebula were the only survivors from that franchise.

另外,已经确认将拍摄第三部《银河护卫队》,但我们不知道哪位银河守卫者能回归续集。在《无限战争》的结尾,只有布莱德利·库珀饰演的火箭浣熊和凯伦·吉兰饰演的星云还活着。

Feige has also hinted that Phase Four could include a solo sequel for Brie Larson's Captain Marvel.

费奇还暗示,第四阶段将包括以惊奇队长(布丽·拉尔森饰演)为主角的一部续集。

Also in development are new films involving super-powered beings called the Eternals, and martial artist superhero Shang-Chi.

同样在筹备阶段的新片还有关于拥有超能力的永恒族和会功夫的超级英雄“上气”的电影。
