Now that we’ve seen what Marvel’s Phase Three will hold, it’s safe to say the future Avengers movies have to double as Hulk movies. He appeared in the first Avengers and has a big role in Avengers: Age of Ultron. While there are rumors of him appearing in another Phase Three film, there’s a chance it won’t be until Avengers: Infinity War Part 1.
Mark Ruffalo does admit there are moments in Age of Ultron that tease what’s to come for the character. In a new interview he talks about how the character’s internal conflict could set up future Hulk films and the likelihood of those happening at all. Read the new Mark Ruffalo Hulk quotes below.

As much as we’re all looking forward to Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, fans are already looking beyond that film. Specifically, they’re looking towards May 6, 2016 and Captain America: Civil War. Directed by the Russo Brothers, the film will feature two of Marvel’s most popular superheroes, Captain America and Iron Man, going head to head. The conflict not only kicks off Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it might even set the stage for the return of Spider-Man.
Though the title says “Captain America,” the inclusion of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man is what makes Civil War so epic. He’s the biggest movie star in the world. And yet, in a new interview, Downey stresses that Civil War is “Steve’s story,” meaning Steve Rogers as played by Chris Evans. He also talks a bit about the conflict between the two characters. Read the Robert Downey Jr Civil War quotes below. Read More »
Last week’s biggest news, and frankly the biggest news of 2015 so far, was that Spider-Man is coming back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ll see him in at least one Marvel movie (probably Captain America: Civil War) before a 2017 Sony reboot that ties in to the MCU. All week fans were debating what this meant for superhero movies, who should play the role, and what it might look like.
That last question has now kind of been answered thanks to ScreenCrush. They took footage from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and carefully edited it with The Avengers. The result is a glimpse of what The Avengers might have looked like if Spider-Man was involved. Watch the Spider-Man Avengers below. Read More »
We’ve seen many photos of Ultron, the main villain in Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron. We’ve seen him in trailers, we’ve heard him reference Pinocchio, and we’ve seen glimpses of his origin. But until the movie is released, the best way to truly see a character like this is Hot Toys.
The high-end, Hong Kong-based toy company makes the most realistic and detailed collectibles in the world, and they just revealed photos of their Ultron Prime 1/6 scale collectible. You can see a bunch of the Hot Toys Ultron photos below, which give you some great looks at the character that’ll rain hell down on the Avengers come May 1. Read More »
Minutes ago, we published our list of 15 actors who should play the new Spider-Man. It’s not an easy list to make because few know exactly how old Sony wants the character to be or whether or not he’ll be Peter Parker.
Well, scratch that. We do sort of know. Various news stories have come out saying Sony wants Spider-Man to be in high school, which pretty much crosses off any actor over 25. Now, another report says the first two names to emerge as contenders are names we mentioned on our list: Dylan O’Brien and Logan Lerman, both 23 and white. That pretty much cements the fact it’ll be Peter Parker.
Below, read more about the new Spider-Man actors, as well as news that Andrew Garfield may have been contacted about possible continuing the role. Read More »

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Spider-Man is coming to the MCU. But the powers that be aren’t simply merging Sony’s existing Spider-Man franchise with the Marvel movies — no, this is going to be a whole new Spider-Man, which means the webslinging role is up for grabs again.
Marvel and Sony have yet to reveal whom they want to put on the Spidey mask, but while they mull it over we’ve got some ideas for them. After the jump, run down our new Spider-Man casting wishlist. Read More »

The grand total of cash exchanged between Sony Pictures and Marvel/Disney over the use of Spider-Man is $0.00.
That’s right. According to a report by Variety, neither studio will share profits over any of the films that include the webslinger. Nor is producer Kevin Feige getting anything extra to produce a 2017 Spider-Man film. Everyone will keep the gross of their films, and that’s it. The deal is strictly based on the belief that including Spider-Man in Marvel movies, and making Sony’s movie part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will increase the bottom line for everyone.
Among the other Spider-Man updates are the fact the new actor playing the role will, in fact, be younger and that the planned spin-offs such as Sinister Six, Venom and the female centric film are still in development. Read more about the Spider-Man Sony Marvel deal below. Read More »

It happened: Sony admitted it needed help with Spider-Man, and went to Marvel for an assist. The character will be re-cast, and the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel Studios movie, with a new Sony film to follow in 2017. Marvel’s Kevin Feige is a producer on the new Sony film, along with former Sony head Amy Pascal, and the door is open for other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) characters to appear in Sony’s effort. This is the situation fans have hoped to see for several years, or something close to it, anyway. But the news also raises many questions. What will the new version of Spider-Man look like? What about Sony’s plans for other movies? We address those questions and many more below. Read More »
