Disney held an event at Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles on Tuesday night to celebrate the home video release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (which hits stores and VOD on October 2nd 2015). They unveiled a new Tyler Stout print for the film, and Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were on hand for an extensive 26 minute question and answer session.
As with most of these Question and Answer sessions, the queries thrown at Feige began at the Avengers sequel but quickly diverted to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Avengers: Infinity War and Jon Watts’ Spider-Man reboot. Its so much that we’re going to divide this into two posts. This first post will focus on how Marvel plotted the Infinity stones in phase one and two and the upcoming phase three leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Here is what is answered:
- When will we see the final two Infinity Stones?
- When did they know that they would start introducing the Infinity Gems?
- Was making the Tesseract an Infinity Stone planned after the fact?
- Will Avengers: Infinity War be an end of the story told thus far?
- Has the entire story leading to the conclusion in The Avengers: Infinity War Part II been planned out already?
- Were the Avengers: Age of Ultron visions a prediction of the future that could come in Infinity War?
After the jump you can check out the Tyler Stout Avengers Age of Ultron poster that premiered at the event. You can also watch the entire question and answer session captured on video. I believe I was the only one in attendance who was recording video, so while you might read some choice quotes elsewhere — this is a bit of an exclusive.

These live-action updates just keep coming. Disney has found massive success with reimagining their classic animated films, so obviously they’re going to keep going back to the well. The studio’s latest update is maybe their most ambitious remake to date. If the The Jungle Book Russian trailer is any indication, director Jon Favreau has some pretty high aspirations for the film.

When Force Friday arrived earlier this month, fans were hoping that the unleashing of a stream of merchandise, from toys to lunchboxes to clothes to books, would reveal some of the secrets of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, you might have noticed that there hasn’t really been much in the vein of revelations from the release. And there’s a reason for that.
As of now, the toys that have been released only represent events and characters from the first third of the film in order to avoid any spoilers that happen later in the movie. But there will be more The Force Awakens toys arriving in the months leading up to the release of the movie. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
When Force Friday arrived earlier this month, along with the barrage of toys, shirts and other junk for collectors to throw on shelves, there were also new books. There’s a whole batch of stories that have been written as part of a publishing initiative called Journey to The Force Awakens, filling in the gaps between Return of the Jedi and the new sequel arriving this winter.
Now two of those books have been given animated comic book adaptations. Sadly, it’s not the longer novels being given this treatment, but rather the kids’ books titles Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo Adventure and The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure. Watch the animated adaptations of the Journey to the Force Awakens books below! Read More »
