A few days ago, in the face of uncertainty, the LGBTQ community got the biggest win of all – in The Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage across every state. Love endured and love one.

While we relish in this news and progress as a country, minds are already thinking about the future. And as far as the geek/nerd community is concerned, the question of homesexual representation in the MCU was posed to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige during his press tour for Ant-Man.

Here’s what Feige told SlashFilm when asked when fans would finally see an LGBTQ character in future Marvel films:  (more…)

The overall quality and watch-ability of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is debatable. The acting isn’t the strongest, the dialogue is pretty bad and cheesy at times, and the plot is a bit slow and all over the place. However,  the story lines are getting tighter as the show goes on. Also, as each character develops, there are questions raised that keep viewers coming back each week for answers.

Things are going to get a lot more interesting in season 3.  Variety reports that the series will be introducing characters inspired by the Secret Warriors comic book series when the show returns this fall.  (more…)

Ant-Man, the character, may not be the best of anything to do with Marvel. You got a character who’s super powers is shrinking down to the size of a popcorn kernel and talking to Ants. That’s lame, and will always be something to balk at. Regardless, the character has been around for ages and is quite synonymous with the rest of The Avengers.  He’s popular enough that Marvel went and gave him his own movie. Which, so happens to be, is opening in 3 weeks.

Some have speculated that due to Ant-Man’s appeal, or rather lack there of, that the movie (starring Paul Rudd) will be their first real flop. That remains to be seen until, well, the premier – not gonna know the reception until its released to mass audiences. Member of the press, however, have seen it and have hit up Twitter with their early reactions. Seems that all the trash talkers and doubters (namely people who are just sour grapes ever since Edgar Wright got dropped as director and replaced with Peyton Reed) may have to stuff it. The majority of Twitter posts below indicate that Ant-Man is another hit for Marvel Studios, but there are a couple who beg to differ. Furthermore, it’s revealed that we’ll get not one, but two big post-credits scenes.  (more…)

Ant-Man

If you weren’t already aware, Marvel‘s latest movie Ant-Man has had some issues during pre-production when the first director Edgar Wright left over creative differences. Throw in the uncertainty a lot of Marvel fans have over a movie about Ant-Man and you’ve got an Internet cocktail that surpasses all the worries fans and many studio executives had about James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy. Now we all know how that turned out, but can director Peyton Reed do the same or better with Ant-Man? (more…)

You might think that Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guru Kevin Feige might have had some snarky remarks about Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic World taking the Opening Weekend Crown away from Joss Whedon‘s Avengers, but as it turns out, and most of us already knew, Feige is a stand up guy. He’s usually too busy handling Marvel’s movies to take shots at other franchises. So when the Opening Weekend Crown was passed, Feige sent his congratulations in this manner. (more…)

‘Spider-Gwen’ Movie In The Works?

Gwen

Spider-Fans are no doubt still riding high on the fact that the cinematic version of their friendly neighborhood webslinger is finally safe in the hands of Marvel Studios.  After all, if anyone can make a Spider-Man movie that could rival Sam Raimi’s 2004 effort, Spider-Man 2, which is still considered by many to be not only the best Spidey movie to date but even the best superhero movie to date, it’s Kevin Feige and his merry band of filmmakers.  As the world waits with bated breath for Marvel to reveal the actor that will be taking up the Spider-Mantle, recent activities over at the House of Ideas have some people wondering if that female-centric movie set within the world of Spider-Man may be closer to becoming a reality.  Specifically, some fans believe that a Spider-Gwen flick is on the horizon.
