Guardians of the Galaxy opens Friday and hopefully you are making plans to see it. It’s truly a fun ride, jam-packed with awesomeness. However, one scene in particular is extra packed with neat stuff. That’s Benicio Del Toro‘s big scene, in which he appears as the Collector. As his name suggests, the Collector has a lot of different things in his room. Both director James Gunn and producer Kevin Feige told us to be on the lookout for some exciting Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Eggs during the scene.
Below, read their quotes about the scene which include some minor, non-plot related spoilers. Read More »

Doctor Strange is one of the next big movies on Marvel’s slate, and we’re starting to get a good picture of what the film will offer. Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Deliver Us From Evil) is directing and Jon Spaihts is writing the latest script draft. While Joaquin Phoenix has reportedly been in talks for the lead role, Marvel has yet to confirm the deal.
At the Marvel Studios comic con panel this evening, there was no news on Doctor Strange. But I took part in a small roundtable interview with Kevin Feige today which covered a range of topics regarding Marvel’s movies. We’ll have a full transcript soon, but I want to highlight one specific point.
I asked Feige what Doctor Strange will bring to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He enthusiastically described the notion of moving through dimensions, but in a way that is based on or at least inspired by real science. And Feige name-checks the revival of Cosmos when talking about the magic of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read More »

Five brand new untitled films weren’t enough. Marvel just made it six. After announcing five untitled movies in 2017, 2018 and 2019, Marvel Studios has just added one more date to the mix. They’ve taken the slot vacated earlier Wednesday by The Amazing Spider-Man 4 and now a new, untitled Marvel Studios movie will hit theaters May 4, 2018. That’s three years after Avengers: Age of Ultron, which itself is three years after The Avengers. So is May 4, 2018 the day we’ll see The Avengers 3? Let’s discuss below. Read More »
Over the course of my interview with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, we spoke about two spoilers in Guardians of the Galaxy. Those have been removed to be published at a later date. What remains is an interesting exchange about what’s coming up at Marvel Studios starting as soon as this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, and out to 2019. We discussed what we may or may not see at San Diego Comic-Con, how he deals with wild rumors that pop up on the internet, the way the Marvel Cinematic Universe handles death and how Phase Two shares some DNA with the original Star Wars trilogy. Below, read our spoiler-free Guardians of the Galaxy interview with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. Read More »
Guardians of the Galaxy is still about two weeks away from release, but the buzz on the film has begun. Guardians screened last week for members of the press and the cast and crew have begun to do interviews to promote it. Because the buzz was so strong, and the film boldly declares “The Guardians of the Galaxy will return,” talk of course turned to a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. That poses its own questions. Mainly, who would direct and what would the story be? Gunn was very particular on the press day, saying he’d like to come back and that he feels an ownership over the characters. He and Marvel Studios present Kevin Feige also denied that a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 would include the Hulk, in response to recent rumors. Read quotes from both James Gunn and Kevin Feige below.

Guardians of the Galaxy takes place literally worlds away from The Avengers, and yet both superhero teams occupy the same universe at the same time and even know some of the same people. It wouldn’t be totally inconceivable for them to cross paths at some point, and recent comments from Kevin Feige suggest they may do just that.
If you’re holding out hope for the either group to join forces with the X-Men, however, you’re probably out of luck. In the same interview, Feige downplayed the possibility of an Avengers / X-Men crossover. Sorry, Hugh Jackman. Hit the jump to see what Feige had to say.

After working on Ant-Man for the better part of a decade, director Edgar Wright left the project earlier this summer. Eventually, he was replaced by Peyton Reed and the Marvel film is still on schedule for a July 2015 release. No one has come forward and flat-out said why Wright parted ways with Marvel and no one is likely to do so for some time. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, however, is currently doing press for Guardians of the Galaxy and said the split was amicable, and took place because of “creative differences.” He’s also said the film will retain the DNA both Wright and co-writer Joe Cornish created.
But what exactly does that mean? We know Marvel’s brought in multiple screenwriters to rewrite the script, and there had also been rumblings Wright storyboarded the whole film. Speaking with /Film, Feige admitted some of Wright’s visuals will end up in the movie. Read the full quote about the Edgar Wright Ant Man visuals below. Read More »
