Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 concept art

A new piece of concept art from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is arriving in a new issue of Empire Magazine, but writer/director James Gunn has gone ahead and revealed it online. While this new images doesn’t feature any new members of the team (as revealed in the first piece of released concept art, which sits at the top of this article), it does feature the core team doing battle with some kind of slimy alien menace. It’s a fair trade-off.

The Defenders showrunners interview

We first spoke with Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez by phone when they wrote and produced the second season of Daredevil. They are big fans of /Film, especially Ramirez, so when I met them in person at a Marvel Television cocktail party for the Television Critics Association, it was fun to geek out together in person.

Ramirez and Petrie went from showrunning Daredevil to showrunning the long-anticipated Marvel TV series The Defenders. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will meet in the fifth Marvel TV series on Netflix in 2017. Here is what Petrie and Ramirez were able to say about the upcoming show at this point.  Read More »

Spider-Man - Spider-Man Homecoming Mary Jane Watson Casting

Even though director James Gunn has a comfortable home at Marvel Studios after directing Guardians of the Galaxy and the forthcoming sequel, he has no involvement with Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, Gunn takes it upon himself now and then to keep the rumor mill controlled and comic book fan rage in check.

So when a rumor recently pegged black actress Zendaya as playing the traditionally white, redhead character of Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the sadly unsurprising anger at this casting decision prompted James Gunn to respond. Find out what James Gunn had to say about the Spider-Man Homecoming Mary Jane casting controversy after the jump. Read More »

Michael Pena in Ant-Man 2

Last summer, Marvel Studios brought Ant-Man to the big screen, and the tiny superhero turned out to be a big hit, changing the pace by being a smaller, more isolated comic book flick. It has been particularly refreshing after The Avengers: Age of Ultron ended up being a little too big for its britches, and the film’s success resulted in Marvel quickly changing up their schedule to allow for a sequel called Ant-Man and The Wasp to land a spot on the calendar in 2018.

Since we’re a couple of years out from the film’s set release, Marvel is making more moves to fill out the cast by bringing back one of the most entertaining parts of the film: Michael Pena.

Russo Brothers Anna Kendrick Squirrel Girl

Officially, Marvel Studios has made no indication that they intend to bring Squirrel Girl to the big screen. But that’s not stopping fans from fantasizing about who should play the unbeatable rodent superhero. Over the past year or so, Anna Kendrick has emerged as a popular fantasy-cast pick, with Kendrick herself expressing interest in the role. Recently, Kendrick’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World director Edgar Wright chimed in with his support.

Now Kendrick also has the endorsement of two high-profile figures actually involved with the MCU. Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo have spoken up to say Kendrick as Squirrel Girl would be “perfect casting.” That doesn’t mean a Squirrel Girl movie will ever actually happen, mind you, let alone that Kendrick will star. But hey, we can dream.  Read More »
