Secret Wars is coming! If you’ve been following the developments in Marvel Comics over the last couple of months, then you know that this latest big event miniseries is being billed as Marvel’s biggest and eventiest miniseries ever put to the printed page, and easily bigger than last summer’s event, whatever that was. (Seriously, what was it again?) Anyway, Marvel’s been teasing us the last couple of days about who’s going to make the cut when the Avengers are re-formed and re-united post-Secret Wars, and if the rumors are true, then the creative team had all the Marvel Universes to choose from. So who ended up making the cut? (more…)

You may or may not have heard about this thing called Secret Wars. It’s the latest Marvel Comics event miniseries that kicks off in the next couple of months, and promises – You guess it! – to change things in the Marvel Universe forever. Not content to promote the heck out of Secret Wars and all its ancillary tie-ins, spin-offs and one-shots, Marvel Comics now wants to tease us with the aftermath, and it begins with another thrilling game of guessing who’s now an Avenger. Marvel passed around the below graphic this morning featuring the mostly silhouetted team, with two new team members already confirmed. So who will now stand with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? (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.

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…)
