The world of video games based on movies has consistently been a depressing one. Most of the time the games are weak, uninspired video game versions of the movie offering nothing original or exciting as far as gameplay is concerned. Even with something as exciting as the Marvel cinematic universe, the video games for characters such as Iron Man, Thor and Captain America have been downright awful. And it doesn’t sound like Marvel Games plans on trying that again anytime soon.

Sony’s little corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is starting to fill up.

After Sony decided to reboot the Spider-Man movie franchise but before Andrew Garfield was cast as Peter Parker in the movie that would become The Amazing Spider-Man, Donald Glover made it pretty clear that he would love to play the beloved wall-crawling superhero. Although he didn’t get the part, things have officially gone full circle for the actor/rapper/comedian – he is apparently looking to join the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming in (you guessed it) a mystery role.

Last year, much to the dismay of comic book movie fans, Marvel Studios decided not to attend San Diego Comic-Con. Instead, Marvel chose to show off what they had coming soon at Disney’s D23 Expo. Thankfully, this year it appears Marvel Studios won’t be sitting out the hype machine that is the biggest pop culture convention in the world.
Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson appears to be hinting that Marvel Studios is bringing a tease of this fall’s release of Doctor Strange to Comic-Con. In addition, a quick little exchange with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn seems to indicate that the cosmic Marvel sequel will also have a presence in San Diego.

Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man will be crossing paths with one of Captain America’s old war buddies… only he won’t be one of Captain America’s old war buddies anymore. Kenneth Choi, who played Howling Commando Jim Morita in Captain America: The First Avenger, has joined Spider-Man: Homecoming in a separate and apparently unrelated role. He won’t be the first actor to play two different characters within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though it’s still somewhat uncommon. Read More »
Over a month ago, some surprising casting news revealed that Sharon Stone was slated to have what she called a “wee part” in a future Marvel Studios title. Her wording had plenty (including ourselves) guessing that she would be taking a role in Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to last year’s franchise starter starring Paul Rudd. More specifically, we thought it would be a good idea for her to play Janet Van Dyne, the original iteration of The Wasp who was hinted to still be alive in the first film.
Now Sharon Stone has revealed a little hint about her character, but rather than feeding into our theories, it’s actually a little confusing. But it doesn’t completely debunk everyone’s guesses either. Find out more about the Sharon Stone Marvel role after the jump. Read More »
Phase Three of Marvel’s cinematic universe only just kicked off earlier this summer with the arrival of Captain America: Civil War. That means we have two years and a handful of new Marvel movies before we get to see where all this is leading in The Avengers: Infinity War. The first part of the two-part sequel arrives in 2018 with the second part following in 2019. But Josh Brolin, the man who plays the mad titan Thanos, already knows the whole story.
In a new interview, Josh Brolin revealed that he has heard the entire story for The Avengers: Infinity War, and the good news is that he said he was “blown away” and he got “goose pimples” while listening to it unfold. Read More »

Marvel movies may seem nigh unstoppable today, but back in the 1980s a Marvel movie became one of the most notorious flops of all time. Critics hated Howard the Duck, fans were vocal about their disappointment, and audiences mostly failed to show up at all. But the tide is slowly turning for Howard. His film’s attracted a cult following over the years, and in 2014 he made a splashy cameo in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, leading fans to speculate about a possible movie. (So far, no dice.)
Then last year, Marvel Comics launched a new Howard the Duck title penned by Chip Zdarsky to rave reviews. And now Howard’s looking to reunite with an old co-star within the pages of said comic. Lea Thompson, who starred in the 1986 Howard the Duck movie, will appear as a character in an upcoming issue of the comic, in a storyline that ties back into her appearance in the film. Take a first peek at the Howard the Duck Lea Thompson issue below. Read More »
