UPDATE: This original story ran on October 13. Now Deadline has heard the same thing, making it even more likely. Original story follows with minor updates.
The massive news that Robert Downey Jr. will play Tony Stark in Captain America: Civil War answered a bunch of burning questions about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It gave us our overall storyline for Phase 3: Civil War. It tells us when Marvel will bring Iron Man back again: not Iron Man 4, but in Cap 3. And it tells us the directors of Captain America 3, Joe and Anthony Russo, are very well liked and trusted at Marvel Studios.
Which is why, along with the Downey Jr. news, rumors began to swirl that the Russo Brothers are in line to direct Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and maybe even Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 if Joss Whedon decides not to return. Below, read more about the Avengers 3 director news and how Phase 3 and 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are shaping up, Read More »

Captain America: Civil War already has a pretty impressive cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman and now another name has been added. Joe and Anthony Russo have cast Daniel Brühl, the star of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and Ron Howard’s Rush, in a mystery role. (Early reports say he’s a villain.) And interestingly, one report says he could end up being the main bad guy in Doctor Strange, which could considerably narrow down options for his role.

Over $330 million in domestic box office. Another $440 million internationally. A green lit sequel. You’d think everything about Guardians of the Galaxy was perfect in the mind of co-writer and director James Gunn. For the most part, that’s true.
Audiences truly embraced this crazy, flawed cast of characters as well as the delicate tonal balance he created for the film. Still, now that the movie is out and part of popular culture, there are two small little regrets he has about the film. One involves a cut line of dialogue, the other involves an Easter Egg in the Collector’s collection. Below, read more about Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy problems. Read More »
James Gunn knows exactly what’s going to happen in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. He just hasn’t written it yet. To help promote the December 9 Blu-ray release of Guardians of the Galaxy (which you can read more about here) the director offered some intriguing updates on his next film, Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
Gunn said “the story is written and that’s it” in regards to the film, so there is no script just yet. But he did say that he didn’t want to repeat what made the first film such a success, the film would delve deeper into each of the characters (and maybe even include some back story) and he feels liberated because he feels the franchise’s role in Phase Three isn’t dictated by The Avengers. Plus, he teased that the series might not continue in a third film, contrary to previous rumors.

The release of last weekend’s Big Hero 6 was the first time many people had even heard of the Big Hero 6. In fact, however, the characters have been around in the Marvel comic book universe for over 16 years. Not that you’d necessarily recognize them. As some early sketches of Hiro and Baymax show, they looked way different back in the day.

The success of Disney Animation continued this weekend with the release of Big Hero 6. A loose adaptation of a Marvel Comic of the same name, the fast-paced, emotional action film follows a young boy named Hiro who employs his older brother’s health robot Baymax to help track down a mysterious villain.

Disney Animation is riding high with their latest film, Big Hero 6, currently number one at the box office. However, after several hits in a row, including the giant Frozen, the studio has a bit of a break coming up. That’s because Pixar had a break in 2014 and is releasing two films, Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur, in 2015. So Disney Animation doesn’t have a film in 2015.
Disney Animation does have two films in 2016, and the company just officially announced the release dates for both Zootopia and Moana. Read more about the Disney Animation release dates below. Read More »
