Avengers: Age Of Ultron Concept Art Poster from Comic Con 2014

Potential Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers below. Proceed with caution. 

Marvel Studios Kevin Feige might be vague, but he very rarely lies. He told us Thanos would be in Guardians of the Galaxy years before it happened. He proclaimed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier would change the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it did. There are plenty of other teases that have yet to pay off, but which we believe will do so. One in particular concerns the Avengers.

Feige has long said what he loves about the team is that the core members could be changed along the way. Just because Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow are the team at the end of The Avengers and beginning of Avengers: Age of Ultron, that doesn’t mean they’ll always be the only team members.

Now, a new rumor suggests Feige’s prophecy will come true and Avengers: Age of Ultron will significantly change up the team roster by the end. Read the potential Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers below. Read More »

Chloë Grace Moretz Says Piracy Killed ‘Kick-Ass 3′

Kick-Ass 2 (5)

The original Kick-Ass made Chloë Grace Moretz a household name, but Kick-Ass 2 didn’t fare quite so well with moviegoers. Now Moretz says Kick-Ass 3 isn’t happening at all, and it’s all because of the “fanboys” who wouldn’t pay for the movie. Hit the jump to read her comments on Kick-Ass piracy.

Captain America Age of Ultron Concept

Here’s where we are in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Guardians of the Galaxy is a massive hit. Avengers: Age of Ultron is out next, but that’s not for another eight months. Ant-Man hits two months after that and is now filming. Once that is out, we’ll have to wait almost a full year for the following Marvel movie, Captain America 3.

Anthony and Joe Russo are coming back to helm that film, which opens May 6, 2016, and have already told us some things about it. We know they consider it the continuation of The Winter Soldier, which hits Blu-ray next month. We know Chris Evans will be back as Cap, along with Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier and Anthony Mackie as Falcon. We assume Frank Grillo will be back as Crossbones and that whatever happens to those characters in Avengers: Age of Ultron will be reflected in Cap 3.

Now we’ve learned some more. The first draft by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely is in, and production will start April 2015 in Atlanta, GA. They’ve also teased when we might hear the full Captain America 3 title, who else could be returning, what new characters might be introduced and more. If you’re looking forward to Captain America 3, you’ve gotta read below. Read More »

Captain America The Winter Soldier - Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers

We don’t know plans for the Captain America 3 ending, and frankly wouldn’t say if we did. The film is still two years away and hasn’t started production yet. With The Winter Soldier coming to Blu-ray, however, the Russo Brothers just happen to be talking about the film. Some of the biggest questions they’re fielding surround the fate of Chris Evans‘ character. The last film gave him two formidable characters to whom he might pass the Captain America shield: Sebastian Stan‘s Bucky and Anthony Mackie‘s Falcon. With Evans’ Marvel contract running out soon, that pass seems like a viable option.

It becomes even more of a viable option when you look at Marvel’s first threequel, Iron Man 3, which wrapped up Tony Stark’s story in a nice bow with a fourth film nowhere to be seen. Could Chris Evans’ Captain America story be ending on May 6, 2016 with a new hero continuing the story? Yes and no, say the directors. Read More »

No Jokes in DC Movies

Years back, there was a real divide between DC and Marvel. DC was the stoic old guard, Marvel the young upstart. Despite the fact that the ’60s saw some incredibly wacky characters grace the pages of DC comics, the conception amongst comics fans, especially when modern comics fandom came of age in the ’80s and ’90s, was still that DC was the “serious” house and Marvel the playground.

While it’s not a hard-and-fast rule, that characterization has been carried forward into the films produced by DC and Warner Bros., and those from Marvel Studios. Inspired by Christopher Nolan’s films (which were inspired by the wave of ’80s comics that included Frank Miller’s vision of Batman), DC’s films are monochromatic and relatively grim. Zack Snyder isn’t the guy one turns to for “fun.” Marvel’s movies are colorful and unabashedly fun.

Now a report says there’s an actual “no jokes in DC movies” mandate at Warner Bros., which could enforce the differences between DC and Marvel movies in a set manner. (Update: While two sources support the “no jokes” argument, Seth Rogen says otherwise.)
