Infinity War Opening Scene

As entertaining as the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be, they haven’t always produced the most memorable villains. That’s about to change with Avengers: Infinity War – at least according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. Per Feige, the first five minutes of Avengers: Infinity war alone will be enough to cement Thanos as the biggest, baddest villain the MCU. More details on the Infinity War opening scene below.

Disney Fox

Update 2: Variety reports that the deal between Disney and Fox will be announced on Thursday. 21st Century Fox will retain Fox News, the Fox broadcast network, and Fox Sports 1 while Disney will acquire Fox’s movie and TV studios. The deal is expected to cost Disney $60 billion.

Update: CNBC reports that Disney and Fox are “closing in on a deal” and that details could be announced as soon as next week. Their sources claim that Fox’s assets are worth north of $60 billion. We will update you accordingly as more is revealed. Our original article follows.

Weeks ago, news broke that Disney might be interested in buying parts of 21st Century Fox (whose assets include the 20th Century Fox film studio and television networks like FX). By the time the news broke, the talks were considered over and the deal was thought to be dead. But perhaps reports of the deal’s death have been greatly exaggerated. The Disney/Fox deal might still be on, and to add fuel to the fire, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner is keen to bring the X-Men to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Could that happen if the Disney Fox acquisition becomes a reality?

X-Men in the MCU

As rumors abound about Disney buying Fox, there’s one question on everyone’s mind: how many people are going to get laid off due to this deal?

Also: does this mean that Fox’s Marvel properties will find their way into the MCU? Fox owns the rights to the X-Men, a fact that no doubt sticks in the craw of many a MCU purist. If this deal happens, would the X-Men be able to be part of the MCU? Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige certainly hopes so. Below, Feige reveals how eager he is to have the X-Men in the MCU.

Marvel movies in development

Marvel Studios just released its seventeenth movie in its ongoing cinematic universe, but there’s very little wear-and-tear on this massive movie juggernaut. They’re operating like a well-oiled machine over there, and in a new Vanity Fair profile released today, Marvel Studios president and mega-producer Kevin Feige revealed that Marvel has “another 20 movies on the docket” – and that’s not even counting films that are currently in production or post-production, like Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and the two upcoming Avengers sequels.

So what do Feige and Marvel have up their sleeves? Below, we take an educated guess and try to figure out all 20 of the Marvel movies in development.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Actresses

Around the time the cast of Thor: Ragnarok was making the publicity rounds for the Marvel Studios sequel, cast member Tessa Thompson revealed that she and the rest of the female stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe talked to Kevin Feige about a possible all-female superhero team-up movie. Tessa Thompson explained:

“Recently, I marched up with a couple of other women that work in Marvel and we went to Kevin, ‘What about a movie with some female super heroes? Like all of them?'”

Kevin Feige quickly agreed to this idea, but we’ll be waiting at least a few years before that movie gets off the ground. In the meantime, we can imagine what it might be like with a new photo of almost all the Marvel Cinematic Universe actresses together for the first time ever. Read More »

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: How Marvel’s episodic treatment of their characters undercuts the larger dramatic arc.)

The events of Thor: Ragnarok had some enormous consequences that should have lasting effects on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But will those events really mean anything if they are just going to get retconned in the next film?

mcu future

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is promising something that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has never really had before: a finale.

From the outside, the MCU’s future may seem uncertain, as the comic book movie studio keeps hidden the slate of superhero films that will hit theaters after the climactic Avengers 4. But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any superhero movies to follow up the Avengers sequel — far from it. Instead, the MCU will look vastly different after Avengers 4, which Feige promises will be the “finale” of the current era of the MCU and the beginning of a whole new, possibly cosmic, era of films.

MCU vs DECU

The animosity between Marvel and DC fans can sometimes be overwhelming. Rather than embracing the differences between these two different superhero universes, fans tend to start internet flame wars with each other, often resorting often hostile, violent language. It’s not fun, and it’s not at all in the spirit of the stories both of these cinematic universes are trying to tell. With Thor: Ragnarok currently playing in theaters and Justice League opening next week, Marvel Cinematic Universe mastermind Kevin Feige has requested fans cool out and stop fighting amongst themselves. It’s time to put an end to the MCU vs DCEU rivalry.
