Benedict Cumberbatch has already confirmed that he’ll return for Avengers: Infinity War, but the Doctor Strange movie really only shows the character off doing his own thing without much connection to the rest of the Marvel universe. So how exactly might Strange fit in with the rest of the Avengers when the time comes?
In an interview, Cumberbatch hinted that Strange might be the guy to help bring the Marvel superheroes back together after Captain America: Civil War pitted Team Iron Man against Team Cap. “I’d like to think he’s going to help them both, rather than take sides,” said Cumberbatch. Read More »

We know a whole lot of familiar faces will be returning for 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, and the list just keeps growing as more and more actors confirm their involvement. But one you can count out is Hope van Dyne, first introduced in Ant-Man. In an interview, Evangeline Lilly stated that the Wasp will not appear in Avengers: Infinity War. She will, however, report for Avengers 4 after that, due out in 2019.

Avengers: Infinity War is shaping up to be a real all-hands-on-deck situation. Not only will the current Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy be reporting for duty, but characters we haven’t even met yet like Captain Marvel are expected to join the fray. And you can add Doctor Strange to that growing list of superheroes. Benedict Cumberbatch let slip that the Sorcerer Supreme will be appearing in the 2018 team-up, following his own big-screen debut this fall. Read More »

Among other things, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War promises to pay off a storyline that’s been years in the making — all the way since the Mad Titan showed up smirking in the end credits of 2012’s The Avengers. But it may not quite be the comic book arc you’re expecting.
According to a new rumor, Avengers: Infinity War will not, in fact, be an adaptation of the Infinity War storyline from the comics. Instead, it’ll be based on Infinity Gauntlet. Again, this is just a rumor for now, so proceed with caution. But it’s got an air of plausibility to it, since Infinity Gauntlet seems more aligned with the big-screen developments so far than Infinity War. And if it’s true, that means we may get to see Death herself join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read More »

Marvel Studios likes to keep its cards close to the vest, doling out only the sparest bits of information early on, and then at a very carefully controlled pace. Marvel star Vin Diesel, on the other hand, loves to share. The Guardians of the Galaxy actor is famous for divulging details to fans on social media; in fact, that’s how we learned he was circling the MCU to begin with. And now he’s at it again with another big announcement. As confirmed by Diesel, the Guardians will appear in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. Read More »
Just a few months ago, directors Anthony & Joe Russo were making the publicity rounds for Captain America: Civil War, and conversation turned to the forthcoming two-part sequel that would bring The Avengers back together yet again for another big screen battle. At the time, they indicated that The Avengers: Infinity War – Part I and The Avengers: Infinity War – Part II would each have different titles because, “The movies are two very different movies. It’s misleading.”
At the time, Anthony & Joe Russo confirmed that they would give a new title to each of the sequels, but there was no indication as to what they would be called. That changes today as Disney has confirmed the official title for The Avengers sequel arriving in 2018. Find out The Avengers Infinity War title after the jump. Read More »
At one time, it was believed to be nearly impossible for Spider-Man to end up on the big screen in the same movie with the Avengers. Thankfully, Sony Pictures struck a deal with Marvel Studios to share our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler so that he was able to appear in Captain America: Civil War before getting his own new franchise.
But one Marvel property that’s unlikely to be shared with Marvel Studios in the future is the X-Men. The franchise is going strong at 20th Century Fox (even though the early buzz on X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t very good), and they’re going to ride that wave as long as they can. Thankfully, one fan decided to imagine what it would be like if we got to see an Avengers vs X-Men movie thanks to some very clever editing.

Captain America: Civil War may not technically have been an Avengers movie, but it did bring together nearly every hero in the Marvel universe to date, with few exceptions. Thor and Hulk being gone makes sense, considering the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron — and besides, we know the really reason they sat this one out was so they could go on a buddy road trip next year. But what about Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury, the man who originally brought all these superpowered beings together? Where was he in all of this?
In a recent interview, Captain America: Civil War screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus addressed Fury’s absence, and revealed whether the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. might return for the next big Marvel team-up, the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. Read More »

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.
