Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Teaser

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 »

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

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 »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 LEGO Trailer

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.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Marvel Carnage

It sometimes feels like every working actor in existence has been in a superhero movie already, but technically that’s not true. There are plenty of actors who’ve only thought about being in superhero movies. Like Lin-Manuel Miranda, the certified genius behind Hamilton. While he hasn’t signed on for any Marvel or DC projects just yet, he’s apparently given some thought to which character he’d like to play, if given the chance. And surprisingly, it’s a villainous one: the Spider-Man baddie CarnageRead More »

Marvel Movies Look Ugly

Even if you’re not the biggest fan of superhero movies, you can’t deny that Marvel Studios has executed their plan to build a cinematic universe containing their comic book characters rather skillfully. Every single movie they release is a hit, even if some of them aren’t critically received very well.

But no matter how good each Marvel Studios movie is, they each have their problems, and many of them share some common issues such as weak villains and non-important female characters existing only assist the major male superheroes. But a new video essay calls attention to what the creator sees as another problem shared by most Marvel movies: they look ugly.

Find out why they think Marvel movies look ugly after the jump. Read More »

Unfound Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Egg

Last fall, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn enticed fans of the Marvel Studios movie by revealing that there was one big easter egg somewhere in the movie that no one had yet found. Since then, some fans have been pouring over the movie, and some have sought out approval from James Gunn as to whether the easter egg has been found. But so far, apparently no one has found it, making some fans think it’s not really there at all.

Well, for anyone doubting the existence of this unfound Guardians of the Galaxy easter egg, director James Gunn is willing to put his money where his mouth is for those who thinks it doesn’t exists. How does $100,000 sound? Read More »

vin diesel

For years now, Vin Diesel has been not-so-subtlely teasing that he might have something to do with Marvel’s Inhumans. The actor has said that he wants to play Black Bolt but under a number of conditions. But now that the movie has been demoted to a television series with a two-week IMAX release, does this mean Vin Diesel is no longer interested? His Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn thinks it’s “unlikely.”

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

early doctor strange comics

The new Doctor Strange movie has done what 50 years of comic book lore could not – it has made the the Marvel Universe’s master of the mystical arts into a household name. Like Iron Man before him, Stephen Strange is no longer a B-tier superhero, beloved only by dedicated comic book readers. He now belongs to movie fans around the world.

Any character who has existed for half a century undergoes significant changes. But at the same time, any character who can exist for half a century has something at his core that allows him to endure for so long. So I decided to revisit the earliest Doctor Strange comics, written by Stan Lee and drawn by Steve Ditko, to see just how much the Sorcerer Supreme has evolved… and how much he’s stayed the same. (Spoilers ahead for the Doctor Strange movie, if you haven’t seen it yet.)
