I don’t think it’s overstating things to suggest that Samuel L. Jackson has been as an essential part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Robert Downey Jr. Sure, he showed up for like 20 seconds at the end of Iron Man to tease the broader world the Marvel films were going to develop, and something called “The Avengers Initiative,” but it immediately got fans excited and it made regular audience members say, “What do you mean I have to stay till after the credits?” With appearances since in at least five other Marvel films and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, the question then must be asked, how many films does Jackson have left on his contract? And he answers… (more…)

Marvel took to ‘The View’ today and wowed comic book fans with the announcement of a new title. It will be called ‘A-Force,’ and the roster will be all-female. G. Willow Wilson, of ‘X-Men’ fame, and Angela: Asgard’s Assassin’ writer Marguerite Bennett will headline while ‘X-Men’ artist Jorge Molina provides the pencils. According to the source, these queens of beatdown will take over the protection of Earth while everyone else is whisked away to Battleworld during ‘Secret Wars.’ We’re also expecting the debut of a cosmically powered heroine named Singularity.

Whedon? Gunn? The Russos? Come On, Who’s Directing ‘Infinity Woarrr?!”

Who will direct the two-part conclusion to our live-action saga starring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Last I heard, ‘Winter Soldier’s’ the Russo Brothers were at least helming part 1 of ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ Suddenly, that doesn’t seem to be the case, as there are new questions about Joss Whedon returning. Questions so tough that he had to cross legs with Empire Magazine for a little chit chat about this and that, and oh yeah…dude, are you directing these movies or what? We’ll see exactly what he said after the jump, but from the cheap seats, it kinda reminds me of that time when Peter Jackson said he was tired of Middle Earth. Yeah, you see where I’m going with this. (more…)

Marvel Vs. Attack On Titan Details Revealed As Universal Studios Plans Giant Statues(?)

MarvelAtt

So, the other day I posted strange news about a partnership between ‘Attack On Titan’ and Marvel Comics. Nobody expected things to get any more normal. It’s a friendship that opens up boundless opportunities, even the most farthest reaching idea about combining the universes on film. For now, we’re going to stick with the upcoming comics crossover with a little extra thrown in. The extra bit involves Universal Studios Japan building a gigantic display starring two Titans locked in fierce combat. Now that I think of it, there’s really no other kind of combat. Okay, first up – let’s talk about where this melding of monsters and man is going to take place. Then, the statues. I know that I wrote that weird, but I’m trying to make simple sense out of the insane.

When the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer scheduled to premiere last night on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was leaked a week early, Marvel decided to just go with it. Releasing the Official trailer later that day and blaming the leak on Hydra. That left fans to wonder what Marvel would do for that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spot. Now we know they tagged the SDCC 2014 Marvel Panel footage to the new trailer. (more…)
