A year ago, Disney announced three untitled Marvel movies for the year 2020, and we still have no idea what they might be. We’ve speculated, and speculated some more, but Marvel has not given any clues about which of their comic book franchises will be taking these release dates, until now. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige hints that Marvel’s 2020 movies might be a spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War and the yet-to-be-titled Avengers 4.

The Avengers: Infinity War Part II

It’s no secret Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Part II are going to be big movies. Directors Anthony & Joe Russo have called the sequels the Nashville of superhero movies, “a culmination of everything that’s occurred in the Marvel Universe up to the point where the Marvel Universe is released.” There is no shortage of characters in the two-part film (which will undergo a title change at some point), but there are a handful of relationships, in particular, that the Russo brothers are already excited about exploring further.

Below, the Captain America: Civil War directors discuss a few conflicts and dynamics that’ll play key roles in Infinity War (SPOILERS for Captain America: Civil War are ahead.).

Guardians of the Galaxy in Infinity War

There’s a big shockwave that will be sent through the Marvel cinematic universe once Captain America: Civil War arrives in a few months. But it sounds like that will be nothing compared to what’s in store when Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters in 2018. We already know that Civil War is packed with plenty of Avengers, but Infinity War promises to be even bigger, and Anthony and Joe Russo promise that fans “will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie.” Does that include bringing the Guardians of the Galaxy into the fight?

While Marvel’s TV shows are definitely part of the same universe as Marvel’s movies, the characters overlap only occasionally. And when they do, it tends to be movie characters dropping by the show, not the other way around.

But it sounds like some of the MCU’s upcoming small-screen stars will get the chance to crash the big-screen party. According to a new rumor, Netflix’s Defenders team will show up in an upcoming Avengers movie. After the jump, read up on the Defenders Avengers rumor. Plus, get an update on the Agent Carter renewal odds.  Read More »

Josh Brolin Thanos

We don’t know much about the plot of Marvel’s Phase Three, but we know how it’s going to end. Ever since the end of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, we knew the mad titan Thanos was going to become a factor. The most powerful villain in the Marvel Universe was on the hunt for the Infinity Stones he so famously acquired in the classic comic story, Infinity Gauntlet. Putting all of the gems together would give Thanos all the power in the universe, which isn’t a good thing for the universe.

So through a bunch of Marvel movies we saw these gems and their terrible destructive powers. Then in this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy, we finally heard from Thanos himself. He’s played by Josh Brolin and will play a big factor going ahead. Unfortunately, as of this moment, Thanos has a grand total of zero Infinity gems, but that’s going to change by the time Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 hits theaters May 2018. The title alone suggests Thanos will finally have what he desires and, in a new interview, Brolin all but confirmed that. Read the new Josh Brolin Thanos quotes below. Read More »

Age of Ultron reshoots

Avengers: Age of Ultron is going back to set for reshoots in January, and that is giving rise to some interesting speculation about where and when we’ll see the introduction of some of Marvel’s phase three characters. Reshoots are always planned into a Marvel production; the studio finds each film’s story and tone in editing even more often than most films do, and the reshoots theoretically also allow each film to fit into Marvel Studio plans that weren’t firmed up when production began. So the Age of Ultron reshoots aren’t a sign of trouble; they’re just how Marvel works.

The reshoots do offer a chance to speculate on what work will be done. We now know the primary cast will reassemble for the new work, with Tom Hiddleston also likely to suit up as Loki. And can we expect either Captain Marvel or Black Panther (or his father) to be cast for these reshoots? Along with that news, there’s also a report that the two halves of Avengers: Infinity War will shoot back to back int he UK in late 2015. Read More »
