Thankfully, Kevin Feige has finally confirmed that Black Panther 2 will absolutely be happening. Furthermore, he also talked about the possibility of seeing certain characters from Black Panther go on their own adventures. Read More »

Captain Marvel Details

Black Panther is still the talk of the town, but in less than two months, Avengers: Infinity War will dominate the box office by beginning the culmination of the first 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But that’s just the beginning of this big screen finale. We still have Ant-Man and the Wasp arriving later this year too. But it’s the first Marvel Studios movie of 2019 that has fans even more excited.

Next year, fans will get to see Captain Marvel hit the big screen. The film takes the Marvel timeline back to the 1990 and sees Brie Larson (Room, Kong Skull Island) as the lead character, a pilot named Carol Danvers, who is endowed with alien superpowers and becomes the first superhero who Nick Fury ever encountered. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige recently discussed what fans can expect from the first in a new franchise for Marvel Studios, and if you’re a fan of ’90s action movies, you’re gonna like the Captain Marvel details he offers up.

marvel women

The future is female. Or at least, it could be, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige coyly suggested.

Demands for more female representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have dogged the movie studio since its inception, but it will still be another year before we see our first solo female Marvel superhero movie hit the big screen. Captain Marvel will hold the mantle of the MCU’s first female-led superhero movie, but could a whole slew of female-led Marvel movies be in our future?

sony marvel deal

From the “We’ve made a huge mistake” department comes word that Sony came very close to owning the Marvel characters of the MCU for a rock-bottom price, only to turn the deal down. Back when Marvel was first starting to branch out into movies, they offered Sony an opportunity to snap up the rights to Iron Man, Thor, Ant-Man, Black Panther and more for $25 million.

Sony’s reply? “Thanks, but no thanks.” Whoops.

Black Panther junket

Yesterday, I had the chance to attend Marvel Studios’ Black Panther junket in Beverly Hills. We’ve already featured one article from one of the interviews I conducted while I was there, and more are on the way, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some of the highlights from the press conference that featured all of the key cast members, producer Kevin Feige, and writer/director Ryan Coogler.

Traditionally, press conferences like these can feel pretty by-the-numbers. The questions from the assembled reporters tend to be boring things like “If you could play any other Marvel superhero, who would it be?” But this one was notable for the way Coogler and his cast spoke about the female perspective and impact on this film, and I thought what they said was worth sharing.

Marvel Comics - Fox Marvel Characters in the MCU

Before the end of 2017, a huge deal in the entertainment industry was announced with Disney acquiring 21st Century Fox, which meant the House of Mouse would own 20th Century Fox, Fox Searchlight, the FX and National Geographic channels, Fox’s regional sports networks, and a majority ownership of Hulu. The details of this purchase are still being worked out, but there was one result from this deal that had comic book movie fans buzzing, and that was the expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Disney purchasing 20th Century Fox meant that Marvel Studios would again be in control of the rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool, characters from Marvel Comics who were previously off limits from being in the MCU. This has fans fantasizing about when and how we’ll see some of these characters introduced to the MCU, but according to head honcho Kevin Feige, they shouldn’t be expecting those characters to meet up with any of The Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy until after 2019.
