Netflix’s grimy little corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has really flourished in the past couple of years, with all the leading heroes now preparing to team up in 2017’s The Defenders. Meanwhile, the big-screen side of the MCU is still chugging along nicely, with all their leading heroes set to come together in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. But could the Defenders ever make the leap to the movies? According to Marvel chief Kevin Feige, it’s a matter of “timing.” Read More »

Brie Larson Captain Marvel director

Captain Marvel was first announced in 2014, but it won’t hit theaters until 2019, which is why progress on the film has felt like such painfully slow going. Still, Marvel took a very encouraging step forward this summer when they confirmed Brie Larson as the lead superhero. Now the next big task will be locking down a director, which Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige says they’ll do by the end of the year.

In a new interview, he explains why it’s taken them so long to find a Captain Marvel director, and what to expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first solo leading female superhero. Here’s a hint: he describes Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel as “by far the strongest character we’ve had.”  Read More »

Jimmy Kimmel Hires Doctor Strange

Even though we won’t see Doctor Strange until November 4th here in the United States, the trailers have already indicated that Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will quickly become a master of the mystical arts, despite the fact that he doesn’t really believe in all that spiritual nonsense at first. However, it appears some wires got crossed and Jimmy Kimmel thought Doctor Strange was just a magician who could entertain at a kid’s birthday party. While Strange does his best to put on a good show for the kids, he doesn’t really know how to deal with them properly.

See what happens when Jimmy Kimmel hires Doctor Strange after the jump. Read More »

Scott Pilgrm vs the World Transitions Video Essay

Even though Scott Pilgrim vs the World was praised highly by critics, resulting in an 81% on Rotten Tomatoes, the film was a disappointment at the box office for Universal Pictures. After costing $60 million to make, the movie only made just over $47 million worldwide. The film has become a bit of a cult classic, and it’s found a decent sized audience on home video, but it deserves so much more attention than it’s gotten, if only because it’s evidence of Edgar Wright’s skills as a masterful and economical filmmaker.

A new video essay examines an easily overlooked element of the graphic novel film adaptation: the transitions. If a film is directed and edited properly, each scene moves seamlessly from one into the next and you may not even notice. The Scott Pilgrim vs the World transitions are some of the most efficient and meticulously planned, so much that you maybe didn’t realize how many of them happen in a short span of screentime.

Batman 1966 Print

Who is the best villain across any of the Marvel movies we’ve seen so far? Where does Logan fall in the timeline of all the rest of the X-Men movies? Just how hard did Scott Derrickson campaign to get the job directing Doctor Strange? Want to see the first Logan trailer in black and white?  All that and more in this edition of Superhero Bits.

James Mangold Logan's timeline

Earlier today we saw the first Logan trailer, which is cut to Johnny Cash‘s cover of NIN’s “Hurt.” Perhaps not a terribly subtle song choice, but it’s pretty damn effective. The fun nod to Mangold’s Walk the Line aside, the song choice also hints the filmmaker is bringing audiences a slightly different offering from the superhero genre, and that was the Mangold and 20th Century Fox’s intent with the trailer.

Below, James Mangold discusses Logan’s timeline and his aspirations for the film.

Doctor Strange Agents of SHIELD connection

For the most part, Marvel’s movies and Marvel’s shows operate independently of one another. Characters rarely move between them, and it’s certainly possible to enjoy one side without paying any attention to the other. Still, they all technically belong to the same continuity, and every once in a while, they like to remind you of that fact. Like right now. With Doctor Strange approaching theaters, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has revealed a mystical link to the movie.  Read More »

The first trailer for Logan arrived this morning and it’s safe to say that the look and feel of this movie is unlike any other X-Men movie.
