One of the elements of Guardians of the Galaxy that helped it stand out from the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was that it didn’t feel tied down by being tied to any continuity with regards to the movies that came before it. The only thing that tied the movie to the rest of the events in the MCU was the presence of Thanos and an Infinity Stone, but the events of previous movies did not have an impact on this movie, and the events of the movie didn’t impact the rest of the MCU, at least not yet. It sounds like that will be the case when the sequel arrives next summer.

Plenty of people are excited about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and the 81 million views that the official teaser trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel racked in the first 24 hours it was online is evidence enough of that. That number makes it the second most watched teaser trailer in a 24-hour period, coming in just behind Beauty and the Beast, and the buzz is only going to grow. However, there might be something else to be excited about outside of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, concerning one of the members of the cosmic crew.
Vin Diesel recently sat down for an interview where he was asked about the future of Groot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We know he’s going to be quite the scene-stealer again in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but what about beyond that? Well, Diesel teased some big things for Groot, including a potential fight with Hulk and maybe even a spin-off following the walking tree and his trusty pal Rocket Raccoon.

We got our first look at Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man earlier this year in Captain America: Civil War, where he damn near stole the show from all the more established vets surrounding him. But next year he’ll get to take center stage for real in his first solo movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The very first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer has officially been confirmed to arrive tomorrow, Thursday, December 8. Before we get there, though, you can get a sample the first tiny bit of Spider-Man: Homecoming footage, featuring an all-new costume for our friendly neighborhood webslinger. Click through to check out the Spider-Man: Homecoming footage and find out when and where you can watch the first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer. Read More »

2017 is shaping up to be a very, very good time to be a Marvel fan. Not only are we getting three Marvel movies on the big screen (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok), we’ll get to see three new Marvel shows on Netflix. The first one out that gate will be Iron Fist, starring Game of Thrones‘ Finn Jones as the mystical martial arts master Danny Rand.
A new batch of photos shows off Jones’ take on the comic book character, along with new looks at Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), Joy Meachum (Jessica Stroup), Ward Meachum (Tom Pelphrey) — and, of course, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who is the glue holding this entire corner of the MCU together. Check out the latest images below. Read More »
This past weekend brought Comic-Con Experience 2016 to Brazil, and with it came the debut of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer (which arrived online shortly thereafter for our viewing pleasure). But another Marvel Studios trailer was shown that we haven’t seen yet, and likely won’t see until next week when it debuts with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Spider-Man: Homecoming had the first trailer debut at CCXP 2016, and some details have been hitting the web since then. We don’t want to spoil anything for those who just want to wait to see it for themselves, but there is one detail worth mentioning regarding a Spidey suit upgrade that longtime webslinger fans will be happy to see Tom Holland wearing on the big screen.
Find out about the Spider-Man Homecoming suit upgrade after the jump, but beware that this detail is from the closing moments of the trailer, so don’t read if you don’t want to ruin the surprise. Read More »
The end of September brought the debut of Luke Cage, Netflix’s latest TV series from Marvel Studios, the third of an entire line-up of shows leading up to the assembly of the street-level superhero team known as The Defenders. Now it appears both Marvel and Netflix were satisfied with the reception of the show, because Luke Cage season 2 has just been officially announced by Marvel Studios with a little teaser video that you can watch below.

A few years ago, Guardians of the Galaxy felt like a big left turn and a risk for Marvel Studios. In retrospect, its critical accolades and massive box office felt predestined – this is what happens when a filmmaker as offbeat and clever as director James Gunn is allowed to play in the superhero movie sandbox.
The first full trailer for the sequel, the appropriately titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, has arrived and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t overjoyed to see this motley crew of universe-saving a-holes again.

This week saw the debut of the trailer for The Belko Experiment, a bloody action thriller written and produced by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. With the arrival of that trailer, James Gunn sat down for a quick interview about how crafting a trailer for a movie like the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 proved harder than trying to market the aforementioned film that debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year.
Find out what James Gunn had to say about the difficulty in crafting the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 teaser, when we might expect it, and why the teaser for the original movie almost got scrapped. Read More »

In the Marvel cinematic universe, everything is leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Right now, the Mad Titan known as Thanos doesn’t have any of the Infinity Stones in his possession that will lead to this massive conflict, but he’ll inevitably collect them, fit them snugly in the Infinity Gauntlet, and wreak havoc on Earth and maybe even the other realms.
However, as of now we’ve only seen five of the six Infinity Stones. There’s the Space Stone, which is inside the Tesseract and now in Odin’s vault; the Reality Stone, which is presumed to still be in The Collector’s museum after being handed over by Sif and Volstagg; the Mind Stone, which is on Vision’s forehead after being removed from Loki’s scepter, the Power Stone, which is locked up at Nova Corps headquarters; and the Time Stone, which is contained in the Eye of Agamotto at Kamar Taj.
So where could the Soul Stone be? One fan theory has an an interesting idea of where we might find the final Infinity Stone. Read More »
Just before Doctor Strange arrived in theaters, we were treated to the first sneak peek of footage from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It was nowhere near the amount of footage that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this summer, but it was a solid tease of the sequel that we’ll certainly see more of in the near future.
Now, just for fun, a LEGO master builder and Marvel fan has recreated the entire Guardians of the Galaxy 2 sneak peek in LEGO form. There wasn’t anything particularly difficult to recreate in this first batch of footage, but that doesn’t make his efforts any less impressive and admirable.
