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. What remains is an interesting exchange about what’s coming up at Marvel Studios starting as soon as this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, and out to 2019. 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. Below, read our spoiler-free Guardians of the Galaxy interview with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. Read More »
Attempting to cover the full scope of exclusive merchandise available at San Diego Comic-Con is thankless work. Nearly every single one of the hundreds of booths offers a piece of merchandise exclusive to the Con, in hopes of bringing in attendees. Some of those exclusives, however, stand above the rest. We’ll surely focus on more of those in the coming days leading up to the convention, but here’s the first batch of awesomeness courtesy of Marvel.
Marvel will have a ton of amazing exclusive merchandise at their booth, including awesome T-shirts related to Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and some awesome hoodies related to Star Lord, The Winter Soldier, Rocket Raccoon, Captain America and more. Check out a full gallery of Marvel Comic Con Exclusives below. Read More »

Marvel Studios has an incredible streak of critical and financial success going. However, recent developments have fans discussing what happens when that streak ends. We won’t know for sure until it happens, but another streak just ended for sure. The Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray, which will be released September 9, will not have a Marvel One-Shot on it.
The past five Marvel Studios home releases have had one-shots as bonus features, beginning with The Consultant on Thor and most recently All Hail the King on Thor: The Dark World. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said they don’t feel a need to have a one-shot on every release, but this has to be disappointing for fans. Read More »
