As of now, we’re not entirely sure what to expect from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, arriving on May 5, 2017. We know that Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel are back as the title team of space criminals turned heroes, but it sounds like Benicio del Toro and John C. Reilly won’t be back this time, according to a Facebook Q&A with director James Gunn.
However, in that same session, Gunn discussed a couple of comic book characters from the world of Fantastic Four that he would like to bring into the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise at some point. The only problem is that rights issues might make that a little difficult. Find out more about the Fantastic Four Guardians of the Galaxy crossover that Gunn would like to make happen after the jump.

Before Jon Favreau was making money hand over fist for Disney with The Jungle Book, he was making money hand over fist for Disney with Iron Man, which of course went on to launch an entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. And although Favreau stopped directing Marvel movies after Iron Man 2, he continued to play a role in shaping the franchise as an executive producer on Iron Man 3, The Avengers, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
In fact, this summer’s Captain America: Civil War marks the first time Favreau won’t be credited on a Marvel film prominently featuring Iron Man. But that doesn’t mean he’s done with the MCU. The filmmaker has just announced he’ll be back as executive producer on Avengers: Infinity War, due out in two parts in 2018 and 2019. Read More »

Now that Sony Pictures has teamed with Marvel Studios to share Spider-Man, allowing him to enter the Marvel cinematic universe alongside the Avengers, fans have been hoping that a deal might be in the cards for more crossovers with characters that Marvel doesn’t own right now.
20th Century Fox still owns the rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool, which means those characters cannot legally crossover into the Marvel cinematic universe at Disney. That also means the Avengers and Spider-Man can’t venture into any of Fox’s Marvel movies either. However, it sounds like Deadpool director Tim Miller is doing everything he can to build some bridges in order to potentially allow a Deadpool Spider-Man crossover on the big screen. Read More »

After the collateral damage caused by the previous efforts of the Avengers proves to be too much for the world’s governments, the United Nations comes together to introduce the Sokovia Accords, a resolution that will turn the superheroes into a task force supervised and directed by the UN itself. But not all our heroes are ready to blindly follow the commands of an organization that could just as easily have an agenda like S.H.I.E.L.D. (or Hydra) before it, and that’s what leads to the titular superhero conflict in Captain America: Civil War.
The result is a sharp, astounding, action-packed summer blockbuster that’s the kind of superhero movie you’ve been waiting to see your whole life. This is a comic book film where the action is just as harrowing as it is entertaining due to the care and respect that we’ve come to have for these superheroes after spending a total of 11 films (not counting Guardians of the Galaxy) with them in the Marvel cinematic universe. Directors Anthony & Joe Russo have pulled together a movie that brings as much hard-hitting drama to the table as much as it does astounding action. It’s the perfect model for what serial comic book movies can be.

In just under three weeks, fans will begin Phase Three of Marvel’s cinematic universe with Captain America: Civil War. However, even though this new chapter is just beginning, that’s not keeping Kevin Feige from addressing what’s to come in Phase Four. With 11 films listed as part of Phase Three, we have a lot of movies to get through before Phase Four is even on the horizon, but it sounds like the next line-up of movies that follows will offer up something completely different for Marvel fans.

Just this past week, Michael Keaton was said to be in early talks to potentially play the villain of the forthcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. The film will be yet another reboot of the comic book franchise, but this time the new version of the webslinger is one who will be part of the Marvel cinematic universe. Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea) is playing Spider-Man, who we’ll see in Captain America: Civil War next month, and now he’s been given a couple more co-stars to join him in high school.

As the very positive reviews for Captain America: Civil War have begun to arrive on the internet, many critics have addressed how well the movie has been sold to audiences. It seems that the important beats, characters, and sequences have been left out of the marketing altogether, preserving more than a few surprises for audiences who buy tickets for the film when it opens in a few weeks. One those characters absent from every trailer, clip, TV spot, and poster is Baron Zemo, the old school Captain America villain who is played by Rush and Inglourious Basterds star Daniel Brühl in the film.
And while we’ll probably have to wait until the film is released to get a look at the character in motion or to hear him speak, the first official look at the character is here and…well, it’s not what you’d expect.
