Captain America: Civil War does a pretty great job of getting audiences pumped for the coming onslaught of Marvel Phase Three movies, capped off by Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Part 2 in 2018 and 2019. But prepare to adjust your expectations ever so slightly. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo say the films will probably change their titles, to reflect the fact that they’re two completely different movies and not a single movie broken into two parts.

Last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was a big, sprawling movie with a gigantic cast, and this year’s Captain America: Civil War doesn’t look much slimmer. But they may be small potatoes compared to Avengers: Infinity War. According to directors Joe and Anthony Russo, the two-part epic features a whopping 67 characters.
Of course, that doesn’t mean all 67 characters will be equally prominent in Avengers: Infinity War, and the directors indicate that it’ll be an opportunity for some of the “supporting Avengers” to come to the forefront. Like, perhaps, Black Widow — the Russos, apparently, are among the many, many fans clamoring for a Black Widow standalone movie.

Next year’s Captain America: Civil War finally brings Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and by the looks of it he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with. That’s him getting a sunlit hero shot, kicking the crap out of Cap’s beloved Bucky, and outrunning Cap himself — this guy is no slouch. But he’s not getting his own movie until 2018, which means we’ve got many, many months of speculation ahead of us.
For starters, we’re dying to know exactly what this movie is. What genre is it? What’s it about? Who’s in it? Marvel being Marvel, they’re not giving away too many plot details this early in the game. But studio head Kevin Feige‘s latest comments do give us a better sense of the film’s overall feel, and teases its connection to Avengers: Infinity War. Read More »
Disney held an event at Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles on Tuesday night to celebrate the home video release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (which hits stores and VOD on October 2nd 2015). They unveiled a new Tyler Stout print for the film, and Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were on hand for an extensive 26 minute question and answer session.
As with most of these Question and Answer sessions, the queries thrown at Feige began at the Avengers sequel but quickly diverted to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Avengers: Infinity War and Jon Watts’ Spider-Man reboot. Its so much that we’re going to divide this into two posts. This first post will focus on how Marvel plotted the Infinity stones in phase one and two and the upcoming phase three leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Here is what is answered:
- When will we see the final two Infinity Stones?
- When did they know that they would start introducing the Infinity Gems?
- Was making the Tesseract an Infinity Stone planned after the fact?
- Will Avengers: Infinity War be an end of the story told thus far?
- Has the entire story leading to the conclusion in The Avengers: Infinity War Part II been planned out already?
- Were the Avengers: Age of Ultron visions a prediction of the future that could come in Infinity War?
After the jump you can check out the Tyler Stout Avengers Age of Ultron poster that premiered at the event. You can also watch the entire question and answer session captured on video. I believe I was the only one in attendance who was recording video, so while you might read some choice quotes elsewhere — this is a bit of an exclusive.

Tomorrow is the day almost everyone at Comic Con is waiting for — we’ll be in Hall H for all of the movie studio presentations — Warner Bros, Legendary Pictures and most importantly, Marvel Studios. But in advance of Marvel’s panel in Hall H, something mysterious has appeared at the Marvel booth on the San Diego Convention Center show floor. Marvel Entertainment has posted a photo which shows a familiar object, the staff used by Tom Hiddleston’s character Loki. But the staff is situated inside a mysterious new device. Hit the jump to see the Loki’s staff display at the Marvel booth.

Though three different actors have played Bruce Banner on the big screen in the past decade, only one can really say he also played the Hulk. When Mark Ruffalo appeared as the iconic character in last summer’s The Avengers, he was the first actor to actually portray the Hulk half of the character in motion-capture. (His predecessors Edward Norton and Eric Bana let the CG artists take over that part.)
The decision paid off, as fans enthused that Ruffalo’s Hulk was the best they’d seen in recent memory. Now a new video shows just how Industrial Light & Magic pulled off the trick. Hit the jump to check it out.
