spider-man homecoming sequel

The last nine years and 16 films have been building up to the climactic face-off between the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Big Bad, Thanos. And it will all happen in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and the mysterious Avengers 4 — two movies that are set to change the MCU as we know it. But what happens after that?

The movie dealing with the repercussions of the third and fourth Avengers film won’t be a sweeping Thor epic or another Captain America, but the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. And as the only movie with a set release date after Avengers 4, the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel has the huge job of kicking off Phase 4 of the MCU. All in Peter Parker’s junior year.

james gunn trolls fake kevin feige

This fake Kevin Feige Instagram account would’ve found out about all of Marvel’s well-kept secrets and gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids! Well, more like if James Gunn hadn’t realized immediately that it was a troll account and started trolling back in kind.

It’s always a fun day on the Internet when Gunn decides to go, as he says it, full “twelve year old” and troll a fake account posing as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige that had direct messaged him on Instagram.

Kevin Feige on Marvel vs DC Rivalry

The Marvel-DC rivalry has long spiraled out of control, and there’s probably little that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige can say to douse the flames of the ongoing online war. But hey, at least he tried.

Richard Donner Tribute - Geoff Johns and Kevin Feige

Today comic book movies are all the rage. In fact, there are so many that every now and then there’s a thinkpiece talking about the possibility of superhero fatigue, though the box office shows that seems to be more of a wish from certain critics rather than something that’s actually happening. If anything, audiences are just getting smarter about what kind of comic book movies they want and the subgenre is evolving. But we may have never gotten the superhero movies of today if it wasn’t for one man.

Richard Donner was the first filmmaker to bring a comic book superhero to the big screen in a respectable way with Superman: The Movie back in 1978. But beyond that, Donner also gave Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns their first jobs in the entertainment industry when they were fresh out of college, and the two offered up a tribute to the director recently at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

Marvel movie and TV crossover - Kevin Feige

Most people working behind the scenes of Marvel Studios have been doubtful at best regarding the chances of a crossover happening between the films and TV shows of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kevin Feige didn’t rule it out but said “it all depends on timing” while Jeph Loeb said coordinating schedules to make it work can be difficult when you consider how fast-paced a television show’s schedule is compared to a movie.

On the other end of the spectrum, after making the jump from film to television, Clark Gregg lamented that “corporate stuff” was keeping a crossover from happening while his Agents of SHIELD co-star Chloe Bennett was a little more critical of Marvel Studios for essentially ignoring their ABC show.

Now Kevin Feige sounds somewhat more amiable about a Marvel movie and TV crossover happening, though he makes it sound like it won’t be happening anytime soon. Find out what the Marvel Studios boss had to say below. Read More »

guardians of the galaxy 2 credits

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 flirts with self-parody in the home stretch, offering up five post-credits scenes to keep audiences in their seats. But these scenes aren’t lazy or dashed-off – some are funny little beats that tie up lingering threads from the main storyline, others lay the groundwork for future movies, and a few are are deeply nerdy references that exist to make Marvel aficionados cheer in their seats while their normal friends and family stare at them and wonder what the heck is going on.

And whether you understood exactly what was going on during the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 credits or were among those saying “What the heck?”, we’ve got something for you here. We’ve assembled everything you need to know about these scenes, including quotes from writer/director James Gunn and Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige. Let’s dive in.

Major, major spoilers lie ahead, of course.

guardians of the galaxy vol. 2 concept art

A few weeks ago, I sat down with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige at the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press junket, and we discussed a variety of things. We talked about how the Marvel tradition of post-credits scenes started, and how they are developed before, during and sometimes after filming. I also asked him about the lesson he learned working on You’ve Got Mail so many years ago (seriously!) and why he chose Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to direct Captain Marvel. I also try to make some sense of the current chronology of the current Marvel films. All this and more below!

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Review

With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 next week, James Gunn has already confirmed that he will return for Guardians of the Galaxy 3. After making that announcement, plenty of questions were thrown at the director about what we can expect from the next installment of the cosmic comic book franchise.

So far we’ve learned that the third movie will complete a trilogy for this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and after that the team line-up will evolve to include new team members who will have been introduced by the end of the trilogy. But that’s not all that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will do. The sequel will help set up the next 10 years of Marvel Studios movies, and James Gunn is key in helping determine which movies will be made.
