Guardians of the Galaxy - Matt Taylor

We shouldn’t have to open with this, but here goes: the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not coming to an end anytime soon. And yet, that seems to be the message the internet has taken from recent quotes by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, eventually pulling Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn into the muck so he could also confirm that no, one of the most massively successful and lucrative movie series of the young century is not coming to an end. Of course not. Duh.

But Gunn did tease that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will kickstart the “new story” that is coming down the pipeline. So that’s something.

All-Female Marvel

For years, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been calling for a solo movie centered on Black Widow, the ass-kicking super spy played by Scarlett Johansson. And while there have been a lot of vague claims of support from the people in charge at Marvel, we’ve yet to see her suit up for her own film.

But now there may be a film on the horizon that focuses on all of the prominent women characters in the MCU, not just Black Widow. Read Marvel Studios president and mega-producer Kevin Feige‘s comments about the possibility of an all-female Marvel movie below.

With the wide release of Thor: Ragnarok on the horizon, it’s time for Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to saddle up and make the press rounds once again. /Film’s Peter Sciretta will have his own one-on-one interview with Feige here on the site closer to the film’s release, but in the meantime, I’ve collected some of the uber-producer’s comments from other interviews in which he talks about the connective tissue of easter eggs, Captain Marvel’s whereabouts, Feige’s plans for Marvel Studios Phase Four, and much more.

Hulk in the MCU

Marvel has had some trouble when it comes to standalone Hulk movies. After striking-out (box office wise, at least) twice with two different Hulk movies, the big green guy finally had his day in The Avengers. Now Hulk is set to appear in Thor: Ragnarok, which will set the character on a three party story arc that will continue over subsequent Marvel films. Get all the info about the new arc involving Hulk in the MCU below!

kevin feige at comic con

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is the master of the non-answer, having instilled an iron-clad culture around Marvel secrets and its stars. But Feige kindly loosened his lips a little and gave geeks something to look forward to at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic Con.

While fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe gawked over the new Black Panther footage and Thor: Ragnarok trailer, they got a small glimpse and some juicy details about the upcoming Captain Marvel, Marvel’s first solo female superhero movie starring Brie Larson. The big surprise was its setting — Captain Marvel is going to be set in the ’90s, and feature a pre-eye patch Nick Fury. But Feige is here to explain just why that is, weighing in on what it means for the past and future of the MCU.

Spider-Man Homecoming 2

Spider-Man: Homecoming swung into theaters last Friday and emerged from the weekend as the most beloved Spider-Man movie yet. One of the reasons the movie works so well is that it avoids rehashing Peter Parker’s origin story and skips a lot of beats we’ve already seen in other cinematic variations on the character. That includes Spider-Man’s famous “spider-sense,” a precognitive power that gives him a slight edge over opponents and alerts him to danger seconds before it happens.

In a batch of new interviews, director Jon Watts and producer Kevin Feige explain why we didn’t see any specific spider-sense sequences in Homecoming, Feige lays out some breadcrumbs pertaining to the future of Zendaya’s character, and Aunt May actress Marisa Tomei reveals her “horrified” reaction to learning about her character’s age in the comics.

Thor Ragnarok leads into Infinity War

Despite the fact that it comes out in just a few months, we still don’t know very much about Thor: Ragnarok beyond what we’ve seen in the teaser trailer: Cate Blanchett’s Hela wrecks Asgard, and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), with his trusty hammer Mjolnir destroyed, is captured and sent to a gladiatorial planet where he faces off against The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) under the watchful eye of The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum).

But in a new interview, Marvel Studios President and mega-producer Kevin Feige says that the film will not only “drastically” change things for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that Thor Ragnarok leads into Infinity War. Read on for some speculation about how the events of this film might influence the next Avengers movie.

A couple weeks back, I was lucky to jump on the phone with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Sony studio head turned producer Amy Pascal to talk about their new film Spider-Man: Homecoming. I ask the duo about the lessons they learned from the last Amazing Spider-Man franchise failure, the influence of Back to the Future, was the Trump campaign an influence on the film’s villain, why they watched an Akira Kurosawa movie in prep for the film, and we discuss what the end credits scene means. All this and more. Read the full Spider-Man: Homecoming Interview, after the jump.

Spider-Man Homecoming Clip

Jennifer Connelly was a late addition to the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast, so much so that we didn’t know about her involvement until the first screenings of the film. Even then, when the full cast list was revealed with the junket press notes, some press who had actually seen the film weren’t even aware of her appearance. It’s not that her role is a surprise, it’s just a bit hidden – we can even call it an easter egg. When I talked with producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal last week, I asked them about the addition of Connelly to the film. Here’s why the Jennifer Connelly Spider-Man Homecoming casting is a fun easter egg.
