I’ll admit I was a little slow at realizing that the timelines of Netflix’s Daredevil series and the Avengers movies overlap.  While watching Daredevil, Matt Murdoch would keep saying how real estate was so cheap in Hell’s Kitchen nowadays and I finally got that “Aha!” moment of “Oh yeah!!”  Using the words of Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, the last time The Avengers were in New York City, they “…kinda broke it.”

More than just dropping casual references, however, rumors have started circulating that the Defenders – the all-star team featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron First – may just take things up a notch and make an appearance in the 3rd Avengers movie. (more…)

Captain Marvel

It has been rumored for quite some time that the Carol Danvers incarnation of Captain Marvel would be hitting the big screen prior to absolutely destroying the box office with her own solo movie when it is released on July 6, 2018.  For the most part, rumors have had Danvers playing a part in Avengers: Age of Ultron, albeit in a cameo capacity.  AoU writer/director Joss Whedon has teased fans off and on throughout the production of the Avengers sequel and if the rumors are true, those teases may actually lead to something much more substantial.  Word around the campfire is that Marvel has found their Carol Danvers and audiences will indeed meet her during the events of Age of Ultron.  There may be spoilers ahead.  You’ve been warned.

Marvel Studios announced via Badass Digest that Anthony and Joe Russo have signed on to direct Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2.  We were prepared.  We knew this day would come.  Remember your training, people!  This of course means that Joss Whedon will bow out after Age of Ultron.  Yes, this is happening but worries not nerds, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are in good hands!  The Russo Brothers are about to begin production on Captain America: Civil War, a series which has its own team-up element.  How will they make their mark on the Avengers films?  Let’s do a little homework and place our bets, shall we?

33 Marvel Titles to Be Casualties of ‘Secret Wars’

Secret-Wars

This spring, Marvel is clearing house. Figuratively and literally. Of course the Marvel we’re specifically referring to here is the comic book version of the superhero universe. As previously reported, an event called Secret Wars is about to get underway, effectively ending the Marvel Universes as we know them and creating something new in a New 52-style re-start. Naturally, that means some of the books, including some of the ones you may collect monthly, are about to be cancelled, and in a new interview Marvel’s SVP of Sales & Marketing listed nearly three dozen titles that will be coming to end at the start of Secret Wars.

Robert Downey Jr. Is A Hell Of A Tease

You love the Marvel Cinematic Universe, right? Of course you do.  And, you love Robert Downey Jr., too, right?  Of course you do.  Well, the King of the Comeback has just teased his legion of fans with an awesome Avengers: Age of Ultron character one sheet and a reason to stick by your computer on March 5.  Are you ready to speculate?

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…)

Spidey 2

For quite some time now, there have been rumblings that everyone’s favorite web-slinger may be sharing screen time with The Avengers.  Rumors of Spidey’s involvement with the Marvel Cinematic Universe go back to at least a decade, and likely further among those in Hollywood.  This chatter has become increasingly louder and finally became a roar when Captain America: Civil War was announced as part of Marvel’s Phase 3 plans.  Tonight, we can officially confirm that Spider-Man is joining the MCU.

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. Sound enticing? Then you know exactly what to do next. (more…)

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…)

Ant-Man1

Later tonight we’ll get the first full trailer for Peyton Reed‘s Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd. We’ve seen Rudd in his scruffy Scott Lang duds and now you can check out what he’ll look like in his new super suit! As a bonus, we’ve got the new poster that’s soon to be hanging in theaters around the world and you can see it right here. (more…)
