Most Marvel fans know to go expect a few curveballs in their movies, (and to ALWAYS stay during the ending credits!), but was a major Ant-Man spoiler revealed by hands other than Marvel’s? LEGO already has a track record of such leaks; such dropping the Iron Man 3 plot twist with Aldrich Killian, and giving us a view of the Vision before his poster was officially revealed. This time the victim of possible spoilage is Ant-Man, by way of an interesting image for an Ant-Man LEGO set. (more…)
There’s a curious phenomenon occurring with Marvel Comics Merchandise these days. Classic characters are disappearing from classic scenes, characters that just happen to belong to the FOX studio superhero movie portfolio. That’s right, not only did Marvel cancel the Fantastic Four comic, now it seems that the characters FOX owns the movie rights to are now being actively removed from Marvel Merchandise like the shirt above.

Marvel’s upcoming film, Captain America: Civil War, is going to be a very emotional affair. Since Iron Man’s big screen debut back in 2008, Marvel’s talented group of screenwriters and storytellers, not to mention the actors that portray the characters on screen, have managed to weave their witty brand of superheroes into our hearts. In Civil War, lines will be drawn, alliances will be destroyed, and lives will be lost. Well, thanks to an extra on the set of Marvel’s next big screen bonanza, it appears that the first casualty of Civil War has been revealed. Obviously, spoilers ahead. (more…)
Mickey, Spidey, and Yoda all under one roof? Disney has lots of other channels, such as ESPN, ABC, Disney Jr., and Disney XD; and Disney CEO Bob Iger sounds like he might be keen on expanding the family. During an investors call last week, Iger mentioned possibly creating TV channels for both Star Wars and Marvel, respectively. (more…)
Given that the theme of DC’s upcoming films seems to be darkly darkened darkness, it’s great to hear Kevin Feige declare that the same won’t be happening within the MCU. There will of course be plenty of tense, high-stakes moments and scenarios (as seen in Age of Ultron and no doubt Civil War), but it won’t be turning into the gloomy broodfest that DC is getting their rocks off to nowadays. That’s not to say that they’re wrong to go down more of a dark route, especially with properties like Batman, but I can’t help but wish they’d take some time to have a little fun with their characters too. Marvel, bless their dorky souls, excel in this area with their big, fun, exciting films. (more…)
It’s finally here, folks! The grand finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. They’ve had a damned good run this season and I’m really excited for what’s going to happen in these final two hours. From what we saw last time, we can expect some sort of battle between the Inhumans on Afterlife mountain and the now-consolidated S.H.I.E.L.D.. We can also expect Skye to be completely mind-fucked as she tries to figure out what side she’s one. And, naturally, Ward has something going on that involves the victimization of yet another S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. So how will it all end? Read on and find out. (more…)
Well, maybe not leaked exactly, but the true identity of Marvel‘s female Thor hits newsstands and comic book shops tomorrow. Since most shops get the weeks comics the night before or morning of, it was sure that someone would post this big reveal before most could get to their local shop to pick it up. Now would be the time that we would insert a huge spoiler warning for anyone that doesn’t want to know.
!!!SPOILER WARNING!!! !!!SPOILER WARNING!!! (more…)
Hot on the heels of the announcement of the casting of Martin Freeman comes more casting news. Fans who wondered what Emily VanCamp would be doing with her free time once Revenge ends its final season on ABC can sleep well tonight as VanCamp is confirmed to reprise her role as Agent 13 Sharon Carter in Captain America: Civil War. (more…)
Last week on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we were forced to sit through that mostly transitional episode that occurs in nearly every series right before they wind up with a huge bang. Also, when last week’s episode aired, Avengers: Age of Ultron was still to be released. Now the movie has hit the theaters and we’ll get the chance to see if it directly affects what happens in the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series. So far, we have S.H.I.E.L.D. 1 and S.H.I.E.L.D. 2 still trying to figure out who’s really in charge. We have Skye getting better with her powers. The Inhuman-esque folks on top of peaceful mountain have their own thing going, one that might be severely disrupted by the knowledge that Jiaying is Skye’s mom and that Cal is her father. And Ward ran off, leaving Kara behind to be welcomed back into the S.H.I.E.L.D. family. But what’s going to happen this week? If the preview is to be believed, we’ll be seeing a big showdown between the mountaintop Inhumans and at least one version of S.H.I.E.L.D. Let’s see if they delivered on their promise, shall we?

Disney Infinity. Y’know, that mega popular peripheral game where you collect tiny statues of your favorite characters from the house of mouse that you can then transform into playable, in-game characters through some hocus pocus, voodoo magic. Well guess what? Disney Infinity‘s brand recognition is about to get even bigger. Think about it, you’re Disney and you hold the rights to the likes of Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han and Chewie–why wouldn’t you include them in your latest hit video game?
Disney Infinity 3.0 will expand into a galaxy far, far away. A trailer and behind the scenes featurette from Game Informer shows us what happens when Star Wars comes to Disney’s successful video game world. (more…)
