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?

Would Matt Damon ever star in a superhero movie? The actor reveals that he turned down the Daredevil role that his friend Ben Affleck ended up taking over a decade ago. The reason he turned it down was not because he didn’t believe in the property, but instead because he wasn’t sure of director Mark Steven Johnson.

Netflix has released a new study revealing just how long it takes for viewers to become hooked by a television show. According to the data from the global streaming service, viewers are rarely hooked by a show in the pilot episode.
Netflix analyzed its global streaming data* across the inaugural seasons of some of today’s most popular shows – both Netflix original series and shows that premiered on other networks – looking for signals that pointed to when viewers became hooked. It turns out that when commercial breaks and appointment viewing are stripped away and consumers can watch an entire season as they choose, you can see fandom emerge. That is, 70% of viewers who watched the hooked episode went on to complete season one or more poetically, when members were hooked and there was no turning back.
