ABC is ordering another Marvel TV series. Ben Karlin, who worked as a producer on The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Modern Family, is exec producer on a new comedy called Damage Control, inspired by a set of short Marvel Comics series originally published in 1989.
The show, which has a script order from ABC, is about the people who clean up after superhero activity in the Marvel universe. Given the scale of stuff that happens in Marvel stories, this group has a lot of work to do. Read More »

What could’ve been the new Daredevil movie turned into the critically acclaimed Daredevil television series. In a recent interview, writer-director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), executive producer and creator of the Netflix show, revealed his initial plans for the superhero, which were aimed at the big screen. (Joss Whedon also pushed for the character to lead a movie, rather than a TV series.)

I attended a Q&A with Marvel head Kevin Feige last night which you can read about elsewhere on the site (Infinity Stones/Infinity War and the future of the Marvel Universe). One quote in particular no one seems to be focusing on is something Feige said when answering my question about how they can insert a character like Spider-Man into the long-term arc leading to Infinity War, which has clearly already been plotted far in advance.
His answer contained a little nugget of information: Marvel has contingency story plans in the far-off case the company is able to get back the movie character rights for some of the properties they don’t currently control. As you know, this currently stands at the X-Men and Fantastic Four universes, which includes Wolverine, Silver Surfer, Deadpool, Cable and others. Find out exactly what Feige said about the Marvel contingency plans, after the jump.

Last night I attended an event where Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were in attendance answering questions about Avengers: Age of Ultron and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can read everything they said about plotting the Infinity Stones in the first two and upcoming phase three of the MCU, and where they are headed in The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 in our other post. In this post you can find all the interesting answers that didn’t fit thematically in the other post:
- How does it feel to be able to include Spider-Man in the MCU?
- How was Spider-Man inserted into the plan they already had leading towards The Avengers: Infinity War?
- Does Marvel have plans for Fantastic Four and X-Men in the chance they get the rights back?
- Will The Marvel television characters or storylines ever appear in the Marvel movies? Would characters be recast?
- Why didn’t Captain Marvel and other Marvel character have a cameo at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron?
- When will Guardians of the Galaxy cross over with the earth bound Marvel heroes?
- When will we get more casting announcements for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2?
- How does Howard The Duck make it back to Earth?
- When will Marvel One Shots short films return?

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.
