marvel cosmic universe

Guardians of the Galaxy was a universe apart from the rest of the Marvel movies. While the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were subject to the control of the #ItsAllConnected mantra, with tons of world-building and cameos implemented into the separate films, Guardians of the Galaxy had the freedom to be a wholly separate story unto itself.

But as the MCU expands, so does Guardians of the Galaxy‘s role in it. The third film in the Guardians of the Galaxy series, helmed again by director James Gunn, will play a pivotal role in introducing the Marvel cosmic universe. But Gunn assures that although Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be the first in this cosmic era, every film that follows it won’t follow the Guardians template.

the punisher trailer

I’m not saying John Wick is the only emotionally fraught vigilante who’s allowed to dramatically smash concrete with a sledgehammer in a scene of violent catharsis, but this particular slice of imagery from the first official The Punisher trailer demands the comparison.

The first teaser for the upcoming Netflix series premiered at the tail end of The Defenders, which arrived on the streaming service early this morning. It’s online now, showcasing Jon Bernthal is all of his glowering, floor-smashing glory.

After the massive box office and critical success of Wonder Woman, a sequel was a done deal. With development already underway on Wonder Woman 2, the only thing missing was the director.

Now, it’s been officially confirmed that director Patty Jenkins is finalizing a deal with Warner Bros. to return to the director’s chair for the sequel to the most successful DC Extended Universe film yet. And it may make her the highest-paid female director in Hollywood.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Honest Trailer

Next week brings Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD, which means Marvel fans will be watching it over and over again until Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters. Or at least until the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer arrives. But since the movie has been available on Digital HD since last week, Honest Trailers is here to take some jabs at the movie that they describe as an episode of My Two Dads in space, but with maybe too much laughing from our main characters.

Which Avenger Survives Infinity War

For years, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have been speculating about which of their on-screen heroes will survive the upcoming battle with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and which ones will bite the dust once and for all. The follow-up movie, Avengers 4, has already begun filming, but that movie’s title supposedly isn’t being released until Infinity War comes out because it’s a spoiler for what happens in its predecessor.

But now, thanks to a new interview, there’s one surprising Avenger who sounds as if he or she will survive Infinity War and make it to the battlefield in Avengers 4. I’ve carefully avoided even vaguely hinting at who this person might be thus far, but I’ll warn you now: there are possible spoilers below.

The bulk of this new Japanese trailer for Thor: Ragnarok consists of footage we’ve seen before, cut in a different order. However, the opening moments should perk up the ears of Marvel fans, as they tease a meeting between the God of Thunder and the not-quite-Sorcerer Supreme himself, Doctor Strange.
