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 »

The April 8 episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. reached two milestones. First, it tied into the landmark events of the #1 movie in the world, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and hinted towards Avengers: Age of Ultron. Second, it was one of the lowest-rated episodes in the series history. This piece won’t focus on that second fact but it’s important to remember because, over the next few weeks, things are sure to heat up on the show. Besides continuing the story kicked off in this episode (which we’ll reveal below) we know Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury will make an apparenace and now, Cobie Smulders‘ Maria Hill is also coming back.

When Marvel announced Joe and Anthony Russo would be directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, reactions were mixed. Sure the pair had worked on some awesome TV shows like Arrested Development and Community, but movie-wise Welcome to Colinwood and You, Me and Dupree didn’t exactly scream “superhero.” Then we saw the new movie.
Instantly it was obvious the Russos were not only right for the job, but we want them back for Captain America 3. (And we’re likely having that wish granted.) In our full Russo Brothers interview, we talked about the intimidating nature of jumping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Easter Eggs, and using Captain America’s shield more, as well as all of the movies and filmmakers that influenced their work from DePalma to Frankenheimer. Also, did you notice the final shot of the movie is different in the trailer and the film? We talked about all of that and more our full interview with the total film geek directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read More »

Kevin Feige is the man with the plan. The president of Marvel Studios is the person most directly responsible for Marvel movies not only being good, but connecting with one another to tell one big story.
His latest success, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is now in theaters and breaking all kinds of box office records. The record-breaking is no surprise but it’s bad luck to say that a few weeks before release, which is when I sat down with Feige to talk all things Marvel.
We discussed a lot of things you’ve already read on the site. The Batman vs. Superman release date, the ending of the film, some of the new characters, the Doctor Strange director short list, the Avengers tower, but now this is the full interview. It has lots of new nuggets, including why Hawkeye isn’t in The Winter Soldier, that exciting name mentioned in the film, if the Netflix shows will tie into the MCU, Paul Bettany, discussion of the post credits scene and more.

One of the biggest easter eggs in Captain America: The Winter Soldier has to do with Pulp Fiction. Yes, the 1994 Quentin Tarantino masterpiece. Towards the end of the film there’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it reference to the film that either gets huge laughs from an audience, or total silence if they don’t have time to figure it out.
Where exactly this happens is a bit of a spoiler so, below, we’ll describe it and let directors Anthony and Joe Russo tell you how this Pulp Fiction Captain America reference came to be. Read More »
At the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, one chapter of the story is done, but there are many more to be told. That was by design according to directors Joe and Anthony Russo.
