Marvel Studios update

With Marvel’s Ant-Man hitting theaters soon, the studio kicked the publicity machine into high gear this past weekend with the Ant-Man junket. That means studio president Kevin Feige is out doing interviews, which means we have quite a few bits of new information about upcoming Marvel movies.

In addition to talking about the tone of the new Spider-Man film, which Marvel is producing for Sony, and the question of the introduction of LGBT characters to Marvel movies, Feige has dropped comments about Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Civil War, and put to bed one rumor about the Thor: Ragnarok director.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is gearing up to begin filming early next year in London, but does the film already have a new title?  During the Ant-Man junket, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige was asked when the film would begin shooting, and his answer may have revealed a new title for the Guardians sequel.

gay marvel cinematic universe character

We saw a landmark ruling last week as the Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. This was on my mind as I sat down with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige over the weekend. I put the question out there: when will we finally see a LGBT character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Get his answer, after the jump.

spiderman john hughes movie

At the Ant-Man junket over the weekend, I had the opportunity to chat with Marvel head Kevin Feige. One of the questions I asked was about the Marvel Studios-produced upcoming Spider-Man reboot. If Captain America: The Winter Solider was a conspiracy thriller, and Ant-Man is a heist film, what can we expect for Spider-Man? Marvel has cleverly theorized that the key to preventing superhero overload at the multiplex is to set their stories inside other film genres. So what kind of film will the new Spider-Man movie be?

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.

Ant-Man set visit

On October 9 2014 I visited my first Marvel set. The film was Ant-Man, Marvel Studios’ latest gamble and the final film in Phase Two of the company’s influential and uber-successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. I mention it was my first Marvel set visit because, like me, Ant-Man represents many firsts for Marvel. It’s the first time they’ve hired a director, Peyton Reed, just weeks before shooting. It’s the first time their central hero, Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd), has a family. It’s the first time we’ll see a man shrink down to ride on ant. Those are just the tip of the iceberg.

Below, read 65 things we learned over two days — days 37 and 38 of the 74-day shoot — on the Atlanta set of Ant-Man. There’s also info from a day spent at ILM on June 15, 2015. Read More »
