Since Captain America: The Winter Soldier went into production (if not before), we’re heard about how it was going to be more than superhero movie and be something more akin to the political thrillers of the 1970s, but so far the trailers have emphasized the action and adventure. Hey, don’t get us wrong, we love that $#!%, but what about that political stuff we were promised? Well, maybe this is where it starts. (more…)
Some stuff we just can’t stop talking about. Even if it’s years away from becoming reality, we can’t help ourselves. Even if there’s a chance nothing will ever, ever come of it, we get all excited like a kid who ate too many Pixie sticks. Of course, we hardly expect nothing to come of all this Doctor Strange discussion, Marvel’s too heavily invested in turning every character they have into something, be it their own movie, or a side character on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But as the rumor mill keeps churning, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige sat down once again to chill us out. (more…)
What a day for a ton of Avengers: Age of Ultron rumors. The latest, following today’s revelation that Paul Bettany had signed on to play The Vision, suggests that Ms. Marvel will also be joining the team in the upcoming sequel along with Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. So should you believe it, or not? I don’t know, but the ranks of The Avengers are starting to sound a little swelled, don’t you think? (more…)
An interesting new fan theory seems to think it’s possible.
Buckle up, friends–this one’s gonna be a doozy!
(Remember–this is JUST a theory. It’s a fascinating notion, but not the words of anyone connected to Marvel or the Avengers films) (more…)
Hey! Remember that twist from Iron Man 3 that was offensive to you, your family, your country and your God, and by that I mean Stan Lee? You know the one I’m talking about. It involves The Mandarin as played by Sir Ben Kingsley. As I’m sure you know, the subject of the Marvel Studios One-Shot that’s to be included in the upcoming Blu-ray release of Thor: The Dark World is Kingsley’s Mandarin, and the short’s writer and Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce wants you to know that there’s a story detail that’s not an apology and it’s not re-writing history either. If you want to know what he means, I assume you know how Iron Man 3 turned out, and if you don’t, beware of spoilers below. (more…)
Let’s be clear: That’s not as in a new movie in the Avengers film franchise. The Avengers: Age of Ultron is already under way, and Avengers 3 is planned as well–none of this is news.
No, apparently an unnamed source at Disney seems to be suggesting that the New Avengers comic series–which is connected to, but different from The Avengers as moviegoers currently know them–will be getting its own film sometime in the RELATIVELY near future. (more…)
When it comes to the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios must like what they see because words come to the surface that directors Anthony and Joe Russo have been tapped to stick around to make the third solo Captain America movie. (more…)
Forbes Magazine, probably the world’s best known financial publication–famous for it’s listings of the planet’s wealthiest and most powerful denizens–gave the nod to Marvel Comics pioneer Stan Lee, ranking him as the 9th most influential celebrity on Earth. (more…)
I certainly know that many of us were surprised at the casting announcement of Academy Award-winning actor/producer Michael Douglas as Dr. Henry Pym in Ant-Man. That’s to the credit of Marvel Studios’ success and mass appeal, that actors like Douglas, and Robert Redford, are gleeful joining film projects like Ant-Man and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As if we need an explanation, Douglas talked in a recent interview why he signed up to play Pym, and whether or not he’s got a future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (more…)
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, recently spoke to SFX Magazine regarding the highly-anticipated sequel to Avengers–Avengers: Age of Ultron (after the jump). (more…)
