Whether a character from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, or any of Marvel’s other shows could cross over into Marvel’s movies is just a matter of timing, Marvel chief Kevin Feige always says. If there’s one actor from one of those shows that’d like to make the jump, it’s Vincent D’Onofrio. The Kingpin actor admits, however, it’s “pretty much been said it’s not going to happen,” or at least not for a long, long time.
Below, read what else D’Onofrio had to say about the MCU.

There are days where trying to remember which Marvel characters will actually play a role in Avengers: Infinity War is like herding cats: an impossible, useless task that will only give you a headache after awhile. Perhaps the best course of action is to simply default to “Every single Marvel Cinematic Universe Character is going to pop up in the movie in some capacity” and leave it at that. Let’s stick with that second one for now, especially since Karen Gillan has officially said, out loud, in front a reporter, that Nebula will play a role in the upcoming galaxy-wide crossover movie.

Captain America: Civil War established that Black Panther was a stone-cold badass from the nation of Wakanda. But what with all the superhero-on-superhero drama, it didn’t have much time to show us how he came to be the guy he is today. That job will fall on the Black Panther solo film being directed by Ryan Coogler. And one piece of that puzzle, apparently, lies in 1990s California. A new report indicates Black Panther will flash back to T’Challa’s formative years, when he was attending school in America. Learn more about what we can expect below. Read More »

As we’ve already established, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist aren’t exactly team player types. It’d probably take a monumental threat to bring the four of them together for The Defenders, and over the summer we learned the face of that threat would be Sigourney Weaver. Since then, details about her mysterious The Defenders villain character have been kept under very tight wraps. But today brings our first look at Weaver in character, along with a few new details about her — including her name.
See the first The Defenders Sigourney Weaver photo below, plus a whole bunch of new images featuring the various Defenders in different configurations. (My favorite of those new photos is the one highlighted above.) Read More »

Filmmakers, stars, and studio marketing teams will bend over backward to keep a film’s secrets, but the tie-in toy line will give them away every time. Okay, so “every time” is an exaggeration. But as we’ve seen recently with everything from Power Rangers to Beauty and the Beast, toys can be a rich source of information about highly anticipated and closely guarded upcoming releases.
Like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While we’ve known for a while that Elizabeth Debicki‘s Ayesha would be the villain, the first trailer didn’t show her at all. So our first look at the character comes today in the form of a Funko Pint Size Heroes toy. Check it out below. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has already resolved one big mystery left over from the last film — the question of Star-Lord’s true parentage. As we learned over the summer, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) is actually the son of Ego, the Living Planet, played by national treasure Kurt Russell. But while discovering you’re descended from an actual planet is the kind of thing that could only happen in the Marvel universe, director James Gunn indicates the father-son relationship will be rooted in more grounded emotions.
