Avengers Infinity War poster

If you’ve paid attention to studio-produced movie posters over the past couple of decades, you’ve probably noticed that many of them are hideous images that are basically Photoshopped to oblivion. While Marvel Studios tends to make enjoyable, crowd-pleasing movies, the studio is often one of the worst offenders when it comes to creating posters. For a movie with as many characters as Avengers: Infinity War, it was practically a given that the poster would be overcrowded and kind of an eyesore – but we didn’t expect it to have an easily-preventable error in plain sight.

Take a look at the flaw below, along with a batch of new Empire Magazine covers featuring some of the film’s heavy hitters.

justice league box office

No one could’ve predicted this, but Justice League has ended its theatrical run as the lowest-grossing DCEU film to date. Even Suicide Squad somehow made more money than DC’s huge superhero team-up film. So what happened with the Justice League box office?

Wakanda in Walt Disney World

Black Panther is an enormous hit at the box office, earning a whopping $1.18 billion in just five weeks of release. This week, the film should surpass The Avengers to become not only the largest grossing film from Disney’s Marvel Studios, but the highest grossing superhero film of all time. One of the things that all the critics and fans are talking about is the worldbuilding of the film, at the center of which is the fictional, secretive, and technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda.

After seeing the movie, I walked out saying that I wanted to visit Wakanda. And I’m not alone, as searches for travel to the non-existent country have skyrocketed on travel websites. I walked out of the movie theater speculating that Disney could build Wakanda in Disney World Resort’s Animal Kingdom park, which already features a land designed to immerse you in a modern African village. But rumors have turned to the more future and technology-focused Epcot park…but could one painting at a different theme park prevent Wakanda and Black Panther from appearing in Disney World?

Forces of Destiny season 2

Of the many ways Disney builds their Star Wars brand outside of the theater, Star Wars: Forces of Destiny may be one of the best. It’s a campaign made up of animated shorts, toys, and kids’ books that are all intended to bring some extra attention to the franchise’s female characters. We wrote about the first season of animated shorts last year, and now Disney is back with Forces of Destiny season 2.

Star Wars actors Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Marie Tran, and more lend their voices to the animated versions of their characters, and this batch is especially notable because it features the return of Mark Hamill voicing Luke Skywalker. Check out all eight episodes below.
