Ant-Man wouldn’t be a Marvel movie if it didn’t contain a bunch of fun easter eggs and references to comic book creators, storylines and side characters.

After the jump you will find over 20 easter eggs for the latest Marvel superhero movie starring Paul Rudd.

One of the many reasons people continue to show up in droves to Marvel movies is they want to see what happens next. With each subsequent film, short or TV show, one cohesive story continues to unfold. It’s serial moviemaking.
That means, hypothetically, if you wanted to watch the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as one movie, you could. They were conceived as a single story all linking together, so why not edit them into one huge movie? You can and that’s exactly what some Marvel fans have done. However, while that’s cool on its own, they’ve gone one step further. They’ve created a video letting people know how to make their own edit of Phase One in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as one, chronological movie. Check out the how to Marvel Phase One Timeline video below. Read More »

Like all the other Marvel movies before it, this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy is jam-packed with Easter Eggs. An “easter egg” is a hidden visual or audio cue that doesn’t add to a story, and isn’t necessary to see on first watch, but adds to repeat viewings by winking to the fans. Marvel is great at this, stuffing their films with Easter Eggs both very obvious and rather subtle, making all of their movies crazy rewatchable.
The problem with most of these Marvel Easter Eggs is they go by so fast, you often can’t see them until the films hit Blu-ray. That’s why this new video from MTV, Every Marvel Easter Egg Explained In One Video, only goes through last year’s Thor: The Dark World. Even so, it’s still an awesome watch and surely includes some things even the most hard-core fans might have missed. Read More »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters today, which means it’s a day to celebrate the achievements of Marvel Studios. We’re in the middle of a comic book storytelling renaissance, folks, and Marvel is at the head of it. The way they have weaved all these characters and movies together into one huge story is truly remarkable. It’s something we talk about every day, but step back a second and look really think about it. It’s movie history.
As the case with most things, history isn’t without its detractors, such as the team at CinemaSins. Once again they’ve gone ahead and nitpicked their way to millions of YouTube views with their patented “Everything Wrong With” series. Two of the latest videos, not coincidentally released close to The Winter Soldier, are Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor: The Dark World. Watch “Everything Wrong With Thor The Dark World” and “Everything Wrong With Captain America: The First Avenger” below. Read More »
After getting sued over the packaging of Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Blu-ray box set, Marvel has regrouped and reloaded. The official set goes back up for presale Tuesday and will now be on sale April 2, 2013.
With the added time, the company has gone ahead and upgraded the set. In addition to full Blu-rays of Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers, they’ve added brand new, never before seen deleted scenes from those films as well as an exclusive tease to all of the Phase Two movies – Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers 2 and maybe even Ant-Man. After the jump, read what Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige had to say about the set. Read More »
Part of the reason why the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been so successful is foresight. When signing up an actor to play a role, the studio requires they sign a multi-picture deal so the characters can appear not only in their own movies, but others as well. It’s how films like The Avengers are possible with the same actors. Unfortunately, it’s not something all the actors are exactly comfortable with, according to Hugo Weaving.
Weaving, who played the Red Skull in Joe Johnston’s 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger, said he doesn’t want to reprise the character if he can avoid it. He did acknowlege, however, that he signed a contract and if he was asked to do so – in either Captain America: The Winter Soldier or The Avengers 2 – he would. Read his quote after the jump.

Six hundred million dollars later, The Avengers has rocked our world. The film, and the build-up to it, were such massive pop culture events, years in the making, that everything coming after it almost feels superfluous. So instead of looking forward, maybe it’s time to look back and appreciate what Marvel did leading up to The Avengers. That would be films like Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, (mostly) high quality superhero movies that lead to this summer’s uber-hit.
Marvel is releasing a huge Blu-ray box set September 25 called Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled and has just released a trailer teasing the package. Check it out below. Read More »
