Avengers 4

Ant-Man and Avengers: Infinity War co-star Evangeline Lilly is currently filming the still-untitled Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel Avengers 4, and the actress has shed some light on the future of the MCU. As it turns out, the different direction the MCU is headed towards in the post-Avengers 4 era is a lot like Lilly’s old TV series Lost. Could this mean the MCU characters are going to wake up in a church somewhere in purgatory? No, probably not. To learn just how the MCU post-Avengers 4 is like Lost, keep reading.

avengers infinity war trailer

It’s all been leading up to this. Well, technically, it’s all still leading up to Avengers 4, but since that movie doesn’t come out until 2019, we’ll take what we can get.

As promised in a trailer tease video yesterday, Marvel Studios has unveiled the highly-anticipated first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, the superhero sequel that sees practically every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe uniting to face down the Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin). Finally, after years of lurking in the shadows and pouting on his throne, Thanos is taking matters into his own hands – and our heroes may have finally met their match. Check out the first Avengers Infinity War trailer below.

Marvel Creative Committee

Not all studio notes are terrible. Early drafts of Good Will Hunting included a subplot about Will going on the run from the FBI, but writers Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were encouraged to cut that and the movie is better off for it. But sometimes you come across a studio note that’s so awful, it would have altered the entire vibe of a movie so drastically that the final product as we know it today might not even have been recognizable if they got their wish.

Such is the case with an anecdote shared by writer/director James Gunn in Vanity Fair’s big Marvel Studios cover story yesterday. Gunn explained that the Marvel Creative Committee – a now disbanded group of advisors who used to have major creative input on Marvel movies – tried to get him to remove the Awesome Mix soundtrack from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Green Lantern wasn’t the shining beacon for superhero movies that Warner Bros. anticipated when Ryan Reynolds donned the green ring in 2011. Since then, the DC Comics movies have experienced an overhaul with Man of Steel in 2013, and not a word was mentioned of Hal Jordan and his fellow green guardians in the new DC Extended Universe.

But that film wasn’t the last hurrah for the Green Lantern. The name will return not as a single hero but as the Green Lantern Corps, the team of human and aliens chosen by the mystical ring to protect the galaxy. With the announcement of that upcoming DCEU film, the possibilities for multiple Green Lantern heroes expands beyond the hothead pilot Hal Jordan — now fans of the Justice League animated series may even see the Green Lantern they grew up with: John Stewart. And Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green has the perfect casting suggestion for that character.

Marvel movies in development

Marvel Studios just released its seventeenth movie in its ongoing cinematic universe, but there’s very little wear-and-tear on this massive movie juggernaut. They’re operating like a well-oiled machine over there, and in a new Vanity Fair profile released today, Marvel Studios president and mega-producer Kevin Feige revealed that Marvel has “another 20 movies on the docket” – and that’s not even counting films that are currently in production or post-production, like Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and the two upcoming Avengers sequels.

So what do Feige and Marvel have up their sleeves? Below, we take an educated guess and try to figure out all 20 of the Marvel movies in development.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Actresses

Around the time the cast of Thor: Ragnarok was making the publicity rounds for the Marvel Studios sequel, cast member Tessa Thompson revealed that she and the rest of the female stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe talked to Kevin Feige about a possible all-female superhero team-up movie. Tessa Thompson explained:

“Recently, I marched up with a couple of other women that work in Marvel and we went to Kevin, ‘What about a movie with some female super heroes? Like all of them?'”

Kevin Feige quickly agreed to this idea, but we’ll be waiting at least a few years before that movie gets off the ground. In the meantime, we can imagine what it might be like with a new photo of almost all the Marvel Cinematic Universe actresses together for the first time ever. Read More »
