spiderman john hughes movie

Last night I attended an event where Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were in attendance answering questions about Avengers: Age of Ultron and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  You can read everything they said about plotting the Infinity Stones in the first two and upcoming phase three of the MCU, and where they are headed in The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 in our other post. In this post you can find all the interesting answers that didn’t fit thematically in the other post:

  • How does it feel to be able to include Spider-Man in the MCU?
  • How was Spider-Man inserted into the plan they already had leading towards The Avengers: Infinity War?
  • Does Marvel have plans for Fantastic Four and X-Men in the chance they get the rights back?
  • Will The Marvel television characters or storylines ever appear in the Marvel movies? Would characters be recast?
  • Why didn’t Captain Marvel and other Marvel character have a cameo at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron?
  • When will Guardians of the Galaxy cross over with the earth bound Marvel heroes?
  • When will we get more casting announcements for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2?
  • How does Howard The Duck make it back to Earth?
  • When will Marvel One Shots short films return?

Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem  - the future of the marvel cinematic universe

Disney held an event at Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles on Tuesday night to celebrate the home video release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (which hits stores and VOD on October 2nd 2015). They unveiled a new Tyler Stout print for the film, and Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were on hand for an extensive 26 minute question and answer session.

As with most of these Question and Answer sessions, the queries thrown at Feige began at the Avengers sequel but quickly diverted to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Avengers: Infinity War and Jon Watts’ Spider-Man reboot. Its so much that we’re going to divide this into two posts. This first post will focus on how Marvel plotted the Infinity stones in phase one and two and the upcoming phase three leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Here is what is answered:

  • When will we see the final two Infinity Stones?
  • When did they know that they would start introducing the Infinity Gems?
  • Was making the Tesseract an Infinity Stone planned after the fact?
  • Will Avengers: Infinity War be an end of the story told thus far?
  • Has the entire story leading to the conclusion in The Avengers: Infinity War Part II been planned out already?
  • Were the Avengers: Age of Ultron visions a prediction of the future that could come in Infinity War?

After the jump you can check out the Tyler Stout Avengers Age of Ultron poster that premiered at the event. You can also watch the entire question and answer session captured on video. I believe I was the only one in attendance who was recording video, so while you might read some choice quotes elsewhere — this is a bit of an exclusive.

Emily Blunt in Sicario

When Marvel announced plans to make Captain Marvel, Emily Blunt was immediately pegged by fans (us included) as a dream pick for the lead. She’d just proven her action bona fides in Edge of Tomorrow, making her an obvious choice for the bold, badass Carol Danvers. But her casting remains in the realm of wishful thinking, as Blunt clarifies she’s not heard anything about the role.

She does, however, have some thoughts about why her name keeps cropping up in rumors. And, for that matter, why the same names seem to come up in rumors about any female-led action movie. Hear from Emily Blunt on Captain Marvel rumors after the jump. Read More »

Captain Marvel Casting Rumor

They say that movie concepts and characters are the real movie stars now, rather than the actors who bring them to life. One of the few remaining legit stars is Tom Cruise, even though Edge of Tomorrow and Jack Reacher proved that his name won’t still open a movie in the US in the way that movie stars once could. Cruise can help mint new potential stars, however, and the breakout talent that he lent the spotlight to in this summer’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was Rebecca Ferguson.

Ferguson was quickly shortlisted for Gambit before she decided instead to work with another former Cruise associate, Emily Blunt, in thriller The Girl on the Train. But there’s a new Captain Marvel casting rumor that says Ferguson is Marvel’s top choice for the lady hero who will topline the 2018 release. Read More »

Black Panther and Captain Marvel directors

Even though Marvel Studios may not be bringing a panel to Hall H for the San Diego Comic-Con in a couple of weeks, that doesn’t mean they won’t have some big news to reveal this summer.

In addition to Ant-Man expanding the Marvel cinematic universe (don’t forget that Paul Rudd has a role in Captain America: Civil War, too), Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige has confirmed they’re planning to have directors locked down for Black Panther and Captain Marvel very soon, and he even confirmed one of the names in the running for one of those jobs.
