In the coming years, Marvel fans are going to look back at 2014 with delight. We got a very exciting sequel in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and an amazing original film in Guardians of the Galaxy. Pound for pound, that might be their best one-two punch yet.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, just hit digital formats ahead of its Blu-ray release and so the Internet’s video editors have finally got hold of the entire thing. Enter Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers. The site calls these trailers “Honest” for a reason. This time around, the video freely admits the movie is really good, which is a nice twist on the usual approach. But, of course, that doesn’t make for good comedy so the nitpicking begins. It’s actually pretty clever and funny, so check out the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Honest Trailer below. Read More »

Walt Disney Pictures has released a new deleted/extended scene from Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The scene, which would have taken place in the second half of the movie (so, yeah, spoiler warning) features Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) disabling security protocols and dumping S.H.I.E.L.D. data onto the internet. Everything on Hydra, everything on S.H.I.E.L.D. — everything.
This also means that Natasha Romanoff would also be revealing a lot of her own secrets. The secrets tease a look at Black Widow’s Marvel Cinematic Universe backstory. Could it have been seeds for an eventual Black Widow movie prequel? Watch the deleted/extended scene and lets explore the possibilities further after the jump.

Normally, I like the How it Should Have Ended series. They make smart points about movies while also being funny and respectful of the original material. These people don’t actually think these movie should end in a different way. It’s just a joke, and they put a ton of work into the product.
That balance is a little different when it comes to a Marvel movie. The whole, “Why don’t they call the Avengers?” angle is so played out that I was disappointed it became a big part of their latest video, How Captain America The Winter Soldier Should Have Ended. Of course, in reality, every one of these characters would call in reinforcements. But this isn’t reality. It’s a comic book story, and in a comic book that doesn’t happen. To say it should feels lazy.
On the other hand, they do make a fun point about Black Widow’s disguise technology and you get to see Batman and Superman grill Captain America and the Black Widow. Check out how Captain America: The Winter Soldier should have ended below. Read More »
With Captain America: The Winter Soldier hitting digital formats later this month (before its September 9 bow on Blu-ray), Marvel has begun rolling out hints of the special features. Two deleted scenes from the film just made it online along with a tease at a blooper reel.
Like most deleted scenes, you totally understand why these were cut. Each provides a piece of information that’s either pointless or better conveyed in another scene. Still, finding out where Cap’s new suit went, plus to see Cobie Smulders go at Maximiliano Hernández is pretty great.

You may wonder why people sleep on concrete overnight at San Diego Comic-Con to see Marvel’s Hall H panel every year. You can find a small answer below. Besides the awesome news and huge stars Marvel parades across the stage, the studio is all about theatrics. The lights go down, a video comes up, and 6,500 people have no idea what’s about to play. In 2014, it was a retrospective sizzle reel to set up what’s about to happen. Marvel played a five-plus minute retrospective to pump up the fans and pass the torch to this weekend’s Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy.
We can’t duplicate the electricity of 6,500 people clapping and cheering in unison, or the fatigue and stench that results from the long wait to get in to Hall H. But you can watch the Marvel Comic Con sizzle reel below. Read More »
Over the course of my interview with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, we spoke about two spoilers in Guardians of the Galaxy. Those have been removed to be published at a later date.

We discussed what we may or may not see at San Diego Comic-Con, how he deals with wild rumors that pop up on the internet, the way the Marvel Cinematic Universe handles death and how Phase Two shares some DNA with the original Star Wars trilogy.
