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.

Thor Ragnarok Warriors Three

The opening seconds of Thor: Ragnarok make it abundantly clear that this is not going to be like the previous two Thor films. It really can’t be overstated how much of a comedy this is, and director Taika Waititi reshapes the franchise into something that aligns with his storytelling sensibilities. That means that certain elements or characters from previous movies are treated differently than in prior movies, and such is the case with the Warriors Three, Asgardian soldiers played by Zachary Levi (Fandral), Tadanobu Asano (Hogun), and Ray Stevenson (Volstagg). (Levi took over for original Fandral actor Joshua Dallas, who’s pictured above.)

Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige addressed the treatment of those characters in a new interview, and you can read his spoilery Thor Ragnarok Warriors Three comments below.

Thor Ragnarok - Cate Blanchett as Hela

A few weeks back, I had my annual sit-down with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige to talk about the latest Marvel movie, Thor: Ragnarok. We will be running the more spoiler-filled bits from the interview next week, but today, I present to you the non-spoiler section.

In the interview, Feige reveals that Hela was initially planned to be the villain of the second Thor film, Thor: The Dark World, and talks about how Ragnarok evolved into what we see on the big screen. He also talks about the collaboration with filmmakers like Taika Waititi and James Gunn, and if Disneyland’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout attraction has Sakaar origins.

Hulk movie

Stop trying to ask Kevin Feige when a solo Hulk movie is going to happen. It’s not going to happen.

But it’s for reasons beyond the fact that the green-skinned monster’s last solo outing, The Incredible Hulk, did lackluster numbers at the box office, that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s slate is packed for the next 15 years, or that Feige is probably just annoyed people keep pestering him about it. It’s a deeper issue that has to do with the Hulk’s confusing movie rights between Marvel Studios and Universal.

Female Thor Movie

Thor: Ragnarok is about to smash its way into theaters, bringing Chris Hemsworth‘s God of Thunder back to multiplexes everywhere. But what about the Goddess of Thunder? There was a period recently in Marvel comics when a new female Thor took center stage. Might we ever see this version of the character on the big screen? Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige says it’s a possibility. Read the comments about the female Thor movie below.

iron man villain

Iron Man kicked off Marvel’s current period of blockbuster movie domination, and it couldn’t have been done without the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr.‘s reformed genius superhero Tony Stark and his mentor-turned-foe Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges).

Though the third act of the film arguably leaves much to be desired, it’s hard to imagine Iron Man without Bridges. It’s common knowledge that the Mandarin was in an early draft of the first Iron Man before being scrapped and brought back for Iron Man 3. But Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed that Obadiah Stane and Mandarin shared Big Bad duties in early scripts, before the decision was made to strengthen Bridges’ role.
