In a few days, audiences will greet the new Spider-Man (Tom Holland). A few years ago another reboot of the character didn’t sound particularly appealing, especially after The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but when Marvel and Sony joined forces to get the character back on track, things started looking up for the teenage hero. After seeing Spidey in action during Captain America: Civil War, now another Spider-Man reboot doesn’t sound half-bad.
When we spoke with Captain America: Civil War screenwriters, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, they discussed the experience of waiting to hear if Spider-Man would have a role in the film, and how that impacted their work. Read what they said about the new Spider-Man below.

After finishing up its second season earlier this year, fans have been wondering if Agent Carter would return for a third season, especially since lead actress Hayley Atwell had landed another lead role in the courtroom drama Conviction, also on ABC. Reports said that the production schedule for each shows would have allowed her to do both, however, a new update indicates that Agent Carter may be retired after all.
In addition, there may be more bad news for fans hoping to see Marvel’s TV roster expand on network television as Marvel’s Most Wanted doesn’t sound like it’s guaranteed to get a series order as was once thought.
Find out about what’s going on with Agent Carter season three and Marvel’s Most Wanted after the jump. Read More »
Last month a rumor began to circulate that Disney was considering re-theming Disney California Adventure’s The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride into a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction. When the rumor hit, even though it was from a source that had been right many times in the past, I commented on Twitter that I just didn’t buy it. But sadly it seems like there may be truth to this rumor after all. I have since spoken to two separate sources who have corroborated the rumor, and a reliable Disney rumor site is now reporting it’s true. Find out the details on the Guardians of the Galaxy ride after the jump.

Last year, Marvel Studios tested the mettle of comic book movie fans with “The Ultimate Marvel Marathon,” a 28-hour marathon consisting of 11 movies, climaxing with the brand new Avengers: Age of Ultron. I didn’t attend this event, but I know people who did. They have war stories. Their posteriors (and their sanity) never returned to full working order.
Marvel isn’t doing anything as extreme as that this year, but they are still offering fans the chance to numb their butts in the name of superhero fandom. They have just announced the “Ultimate Captain America Marathon,” which will screen in select theaters this Thursday and will, of course, conclude with a screening of Captain America: Civil War.

Thankfully, the trailers and TV spots for Captain America: Civil War haven’t highlighted too much from the film’s grandest and most intricate set piece. The airport fight sequence is stuffed to the brim with characters and conflicts — but it somehow never manages to feel overstuffed. What could’ve been total superhero chaos is instead a gracefully shot, character and plot-driven showdown.
Directors Joe & Anthony Russo have said the “splash panel” sequence was by far the toughest scene to pull off. Below, learn how screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the Russo brothers, and Marvel’s Kevin Feige went about constructing the Captain America: Civil War airport set piece.

Back in 2008, director Jon Favreau kicked off the first movie in what would become the Marvel cinematic universe with Iron Man. It was the first film to reveal to audiences that Marvel Studios was intending to assemble The Avengers on the big screen for the first time ever, and the rest is history.
It was Jon Favreau’s direction of Iron Man that really got audiences interested in a more obscure superhero and started to drum up even more interest in the forthcoming roster of Marvel superheroes. Favreau would go on to direct the less than stellar Iron Man 2, and he also executive produced Iron Man 3 (in which he also appeared as Happy Hogan) and both of The Avengers movies. Now he’s slated to executive produce both parts of The Avengers: Infinity War. But will Marvel ever get him behind the camera for another comic book flick again? It sounds like there’s a good chance we’ll see a Jon Favreau Marvel movie sometime in the future. Read More »

Even before the Punisher made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the second season of Daredevil, rumors abounded about the possibility of a Punisher spinoff. He’s a popular character to begin with, after all, and Jon Bernthal couldn’t be a better choice to play him. Then the character actually appeared on the show, and proved to be everything fans had hoped for. The calls for a Punisher spinoff only got louder. And now, Marvel is finally ready to make its move.
A Punisher spinoff has reportedly been ordered by Marvel, with Bernthal set to return as the vigilante character. Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal) will write, executive produce, and serve as showrunner. Read More »
Just to cover our bases, we want you to know there are spoilers for Captain America: Civil War credits scenes after the jump.
As any fan of Marvel Studios movies knows, it’s become customary for their comic book movies to have two credits scenes. One usually happens after a stylish end credits sequence, and another happens after all the rest of the credits have rolled. That hasn’t always been the case (Avengers: Age of Ultron and Incredible Hulk both lacked a second credits scene), but fans are certainly expecting it, and they usually don’t take any chances, sticking around until the credits are truly over.
In the case of Captain America: Civil War, critics and audiences lucky enough to catch advance screenings earlier this month have already seen one of the credits scenes, specifically the one that happens in the middle of the credits. Those screenings did not have a second sequence after the credits though. In the past, Marvel has held it back for the actual theatrical release of the movie. However, Captain America: Civil War is already playing overseas, and a second credits sequence is playing with those screenings, which means details have made their way online.
If you want to know about the second Captain America Civil War after credits scene, keep reading, but again beware of spoilers. Read More »
