Captain America Winter Soldier header poster

Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets one step closer to completion this weekend as Captain America: The Winter Soldier finally hits theaters. Anthony and Joe Russo take the next logical step in the story Joe Johnson started in The First Avenger and Joss Whedon continued in The Avengers. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is coming to terms with his unique reality after waking from decades frozen in ice, and doing his job as a general bad-ass for S.H.I.E.L.D. He begins to discover a plot, however, that will put in danger everything he stands for, and put him face to face with an old friend who now goes by the name The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).

Featuring great performances from Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce and many more, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is going to change everything you thought about Marvel leading into next summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

We’ve already weighed in with our opinion, now we want you to do the same. Below, tell us Captain America The Winter Soldier reactions and feel free to discuss all the major spoilers it contains. Which is a lot. Then, check back Monday for exclusive quotes from the directors and producer Kevin Feige discussing all those big spoilers. Read More »

Pixar Research Lead Tony DeRose gave a TED Talk talking about how Pixar uses math to create their magical computer animated feature films that we have come to love.

DeRose delves into the math behind the animations, explaining how arithmetic, trigonometry and geometry help bring Woody and the rest of your favorite characters to life.

Guardians of the Galaxy team

In the past seven months, Kevin Feige has tentatively planned out another seven years of Marvel movies.

Merlin Origin Story

Disney is moving forward with development on two projects. One, the Merlin origin story Young Merlin, sounds like the sort of thing that could be stuck in development hell forever, and perhaps for good reason. The other, an action/comedy called The Wheelman, sounds like a fluffy piece of distraction that we’ll probably see on screens in some February of the future. Read More »
