Black Panther Nightshade

We know that Chadwick Boseman’s heroic Wakandan king T’Challa has to face off against villains like Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and M’Baku, aka Man-Ape (Winston Duke) in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, but those aren’t the only foes he’ll go claw to claw with in the film. Turns out there’s another villain in the movie, and we’ve already seen her briefly appear in the teaser trailer: Tilda Johnson, aka Nightshade. Read on to find out more about the Black Panther Nightshade news.

Spider-Man Homecoming 2 MCU connection

If you’ve even remotely been paying attention, it’s impossible to miss the fact that Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man has a big role in Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. He’s been a central part of all of the marketing, and it’s clear that the studio – who was disappointed with the financial performance of The Amazing Spider-Man movies – isn’t taking any chances with this entry and is hoping Downey’s star power will draw in regular audiences.

But that tactic won’t work forever. As we mentioned in another Spider-Man-related piece this morning, Downey’s Iron Man won’t be appearing in the film’s sequel (probably because they can’t afford him). So what will the Spider-Man Homecoming 2 MCU connection be? Let’s take a look at some likely candidates who could show up instead.

Spider-Man Homecoming Credits Scene

It’s a foregone conclusion that a Marvel Studios movie is going to have some kind of scene that happens during or after the credits. Sometimes it’s even both, as in the case of Guardians of the Galaxy, and this summer’s sequel to the cosmic Marvel movie even upped the ante by having a record five scenes scattered throughout the credits. Now it appears Marvel’s summer collaboration with Sony Pictures will follow suit.

At Sydney’s Supanova Comic-Con, director Jon Watts appeared via Skype and said there would be at least one Spider-Man: Homecoming credits scene “worth sticking around for,” but it seems like there may be more than one for audiences to see. Find out more below. Read More »

avengers infinity war scene

The roster for Avengers: Infinity War seems to get bigger with every news item that comes out of the Marvel film set, but it seems like we can’t even fathom how large it actually is.

Infinity War star and Black Widow herself, Scarlett Johansson, gave us confirmation of just how many characters are actually in the penultimate Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, which has been 10 years and 15 films in the making. Hint: There are a lot.

Sphero Spider-Man

Ever since Sphero made a splash with the interactive BB-8 droid toy that arrived before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters, they’ve become a household name in cool, albeit pricey, electronic toys. Just recently they unveiled their interactive Lightning McQueen remote controlled car, and now they have a Spider-Man: Homecoming inspired gizmo too.

The Sphero Spider-Man toy is an interactive little gadget that talks to you and reacts to your voice commands. You can ask Spidey to tell you a joke, ask trivia questions, give you the time, guard your room, wake you up and more. Beyond those basic capabilities, Spidey will also go on missions, play games, tell stories and do other things that will change how he interacts with you as time goes on.

Spider-Man Spin-Off Marvel Universe - Spider-Man Homecoming

Following the unprecedented collaboration between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios to share Spider-Man, allowing the webslinger to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe with The Avengers, fans were surprised that there were spin-offs being developed featuring ancillary characters like Venom and a team-up movie featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat, especially when Kevin Feige confirmed they wouldn’t be tied to the MCU.

The development of these Spider-Man spin-offs seem counter-intuitive considering how successful Spider-Man: Homecoming looks to be this summer, currently tracking between $90 million and $108 million for an opening weekend. However, according to producer Amy Pascal, just because these movies featuring Spider-Man characters aren’t connected to the MCU doesn’t mean Tom Holland can’t pop up in them as the friendly neighborhood wallcrawler.

james gunn trolls fake kevin feige

This fake Kevin Feige Instagram account would’ve found out about all of Marvel’s well-kept secrets and gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids! Well, more like if James Gunn hadn’t realized immediately that it was a troll account and started trolling back in kind.

It’s always a fun day on the Internet when Gunn decides to go, as he says it, full “twelve year old” and troll a fake account posing as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige that had direct messaged him on Instagram. And the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director posted the entire interaction on Facebook for our viewing pleasure.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

black order

By the time Avengers: Infinity War rolls into theaters, Thanos, the Big Bad of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will have been sitting around on his space throne and getting nothing accomplished for six whole years. And from the sound of things, he may not have too much to do in the next movie. Mainly because he has a group of henchmen who will be doing the dirty work for him.

We’ve been hearing for some time that Thanos will be backed up by a group known as the Black Order in Infinity War. However, a new rumor suggests that this team has been given a cinematic makeover that will differentiate them from their comic book counterparts. They may be Thanos’ children.
