Avengers: Infinity War
It wouldn’t be San Diego Comic-Con without Marvel doing a Hall H panel to showcase what lies ahead. As Phase 3 is winding down, it’s time to bring out the heavy hitters. Marvel already had a panel for Thor: Ragnarok where they unveiled the latest trailer for the movie. Secondly, there was a panel for Captain Marvel where they revealed that the film will take place in the 1990s with not only a two eyed Nick Fury, but also the Skrulls will make their MCU debut (“Secret Wars” for Phase 4’s conclusion: fingers crossed). Finally, they had a panel for Ant-Man and the Wasp where they revealed that Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne will be joining as Janet Van Dyne and Dr. Bill Foster (does this mean that we’re getting Black Goliath?!?). But of course, everyone is hyped for the heavy hitters: Black Panther and of course, Infinity War.
If it wasn’t for Star Wars, Avengers: Infinity War would probably be the biggest thing at D23 today. The third Avengers movie is not only the next chapter in the highly lucrative series, but its the culmination of 10 years and nearly 20 Marvel Studios movies. That fact was gently reinforced at D23 today, and then they rolled the first footage anyone has ever seen anywhere as Thanos finally does it himself. (more…)
There are a couple of things you can expect when you see a Marvel movie: big, colourful heroes, and a cameo appearance by Stan “The Man” Lee. The man behind much of the Marvel comic book universe has only missed a handful of Marvel movies (both in the Cinematic Universe and outside of it) in terms of a cameo, so it would straight up weird if there was no room for Lee in the ultimate chapter of the MCU. Fortunately, Lee has recently been seen on set with the cast of Avengers: Infinity War, and thanks to one of the Avengers, there’s photographic evidence of the visit. (more…)
If you’ve enjoyed Matt Faction‘s run on Hawkeye then you’re very familiar with Faction’s take on how much Hawkeye gets banged around and beat up while trying to go about his daily routine. (If you haven’t read that series you should.) In a life mirroring art moment, Jeremy Renner fractured his right elbow and left wrist during a stunt while filming Avengers: Infinity War. Check out his Instagram post below. (more…)
While the Russo Brother‘s Avengers: Infinity War continues to production, Chris Hemsworth stumbled upon an action figure fight scene and had some issues with Thor’s absence. Check out the behind the scenes video below. (more…)
Next May marks the 10th anniversary of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, exactly one decade following the release of Iron Man and the utterance of the line about the Avengers Initiative in the post-credits scene with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Marvel Studios will mark the occasion with the release of Avengers: Infinity War, the climactic chapter of Marvel’s Phase 3 that brings together nearly all the characters introduced so far in a battle against the Mad Titan Thanos. But this won’t a concluding chapter. For Marvel head Kevin Feige, there are still a lot of surprises ahead. (more…)
With Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 set to premiere next weekend, all eyes have seemed to shift towards the next big Marvel project. It was learned earlier that the fourth installment of the Avengers series will be shot separately from Avengers: Infinity War. However, what has many people buzzing is how Marvel is keeping it’s lips tight regarding the title of the movie. But it seems like Zoe Saldana may have missed the memo regarding staying hush hush about the title because she may have inadvertently let it slip during a red carpet interview for the GOTG Vol. 2 premiere. What could she have said that has some fans raising their eyebrows? Instead of calling it Avengers 4, you might want to start calling it by the actual title – Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet.
He’s played a security guard, Hugh Hefner, a general, a bus passenger, a strip club DJ, a librarian, a mailman, a truck driver, a Fed EX delivery driver, another security guard, a beauty contest judge, a Doubting Thomas, a bartender, a patient in a mental hospital, an honoured police officer, Larry King, a guy who drank the wrong soda, a stranger on a train, and a World War II vet (among other). Stan Lee has had a wide variety of cameos in Marvel movies and TV shows, so would it be so surprising if he were to appear in Avengers: Infinity War? (more…)
“You Have To Spend Money To Make Money.”
Most big studio blockbuster movies nowadays have grand budgets anyways. After all, our demand for big action, big special effects, and famous faces are the reason many of us are quite content with shelling out our hard earned $15 to go see our favorite movies. The movie studios know they stand to make substantial returns on their investments, so they have no problem greenlighting movies for hundreds upon hundreds of millions of dollars if they know they can make a killing on the back end. In addition to ticket sales, there’s Blu-Ray releases, streaming rights, and corporate sponsorships (toys, happy meals, etc) that ensure they make lots and lots of money off their films. Superhero movies are no stranger to this concept as they are now the most profitable movies currently out. Currently, the mother of all superhero movie, Avengers: Infinity War and its Untitled Sequel are currently in productions, and they have one hell of o budget.
Principal photography has begun on Avengers: Infinity War and its follow-up, the untitled Avengers 4. We know that it will feature a great many of the characters who have appeared in Marvel Studios so far, and we know that the big bad will be Thanos played by Josh Brolin. We know that Thanos has been, and will continue, to chase Infinity Gems, but why? What’s the end game Thanos has in mind for the very powerful stones that he will combine into the Infinity Gauntlet? Well, without going into details, let’s just say that Thanos doesn’t like the looks of the universe he’s getting from his floaty chair… (more…)
