Ever since Iron Man first hit theaters in 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been masterfully building their universe in a way that hasn’t been done in film before. Over the past 9 years (and 14 films released over three phases), Marvel has built a literal comic book in cinema that continues to build and grow. Such films have included Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, and Doctor Strange. Also, in the pipeline are Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther. All of these movies have been progressing towards and end goal, the battle with Thanos over the Infinity Gems in Avengers: Infinity War and its Untitled Sequel.
Marvel Studios recently dropped its newest trailer for Captain America: Civil War. In the short time it was released, it has achieved the distinction of being the most viewed movie trailer of all time right behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Sufficed to say, pretty much every geek on the planet has seen it (and probably viewed it multiple times). While the trailer showed tons of new footage and put emphasis on the tensions between Team Cap and Team Iron Man, it also gave us our very first look at Spider-Man. His appearance in the trailer seems to be the only thing fans are talking about – not all of that juicy action and fighting among Marvels heroes. But, yes, Spider-Man is out of the death grip of Sony Pictures and finally back in the home of Marvel…. And he looks spectacular.
In response to the suit design, and his actual role in the movie, directors Anthony and Joe Russo sat down with Forbes Magazine and shed some more light on the inclusion of everyone’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. (more…)
Back in the day, fans were excited to see just one of their favorite super heroes up on the big screen. The original Tim Burton Batman flicks started out that way, as did Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Even today, stand-alone films prefer to use one character as opposed to many, although the trend is shifting to some degree. Captain America: Civil War sounds like it’s going to have more than its fair share of heroes sharing the screen and now, at least according to directors Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War will take it even further with a cast of at least 67 characters. Read on for the details. (more…)
More news straight from the recently robbed Sony vault people; and we have a mix of revelations to dish out (once piece in particular leaving Sony Entertainment Chairman Amy Pascal, looking rather “two-faced,”). With emails bouncing back and forth like a swing band full of ritalin and sugar-pop, overtice.com have been able to extract some more voyeuristically joyful imformation that we are relishing – in a schadenfreudian sense, of course – due to the torrent of bad movies they have assaulted our senses with in the past decade. It’s nothing personal (…oh, wait… maybe it is?!), as, if you are a fan of the Spiderman comics like myself, perhaps, you too, will be rubbing your hand together before reading this tangled web of a mess, feeling nothing but unadulterated gleefulness’.
