Deadpool

He’s everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth and now he’s taken the first shot at conquering SDCC 2015 with his cover shot on Entertainment Weekly‘s Special SDCC 2015 edition. I predict that Deadpool will be breaking the fourth wall at SDCC this year and might just surprise a few Hollywood folks by knocking more than one upcoming superhero film right off their pedestals and onto their butts. Check out the full cover after the jump. (more…)

While she may have been an Internet front-runner for the directing job for Marvel‘s upcoming Black Panther in 2018, over the weekend, Ava DuVernay (Selma) confirmed to Essence that she won’t be behind the camera. Everyone on the Internet seemed to think this was a lock, and there are some sites that must be wagging fingers at their “unnamed sources” close to the production, or just backpedaling from their “prediction” to save a little face. She did meet with Marvel, more than once. So what went wrong? (more…)

The final International Trailer for Payton Reed‘s Ant-Man has hit the Internet and it delivers one of the movies best punch lines and direct reference to the much larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. The music is an interesting choice as well, perhaps James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy‘s musical influence is what we’ll see in all future Marvel films. Check it out after the jump. (more…)

Unfavorable comparisons were made to a certain Saturday Night Live sketch feature Scarlett Johansson in a Black Widow solo movie, but Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist, says that your fears are ungrounded.
