Lots has happened at Marvel Studios since the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Plenty of news has leaked about Avengers: Age of Ultron and we’ve seen more and more about Guardians of the Galaxy. But the two biggest pieces of news were Edgar Wright leaving Ant-Man and Scott Derrickson boarding Doctor Strange. Unfortunately, since the studio is between films, we haven’t heard what the president of the studio, Kevin Feige, had to say about any of it. Until now.
Feige was at CineEurope earlier this week and finally addressed the Edgar Wright Ant-Man controversy (Peyton Reed is now directing), the hiring of Derrickson, production on Doctor Strange, and said they have some ideas for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Read Feige’s quotes below. Read More »

When Marvel announced Edgar Wright‘s departure from Ant-Man last weekend, they made a point of emphasizing that the long-gestating superhero adventure would not budge from its July 17, 2015 release date.
But as much as Marvel would like for that to happen — and as much as Marvel would like fans to believe that it will happen — that summer 2015 bow is looking less and less realistic as more details emerge about the split.

Twenty years ago, when a character died in comic books, it was a big deal. Now, it’s pretty obvious very few people in comic books who are killed stay dead. DC Comics was never going to get rid of Superman. Captain America isn’t going the way of the dodo. And Marvel’s latest plan surely won’t stick either. Still, they’re planning on offing one of their most popular characters, one believed to be immortal, so it’s worth talking about.
Below, find out who’s dying, when, where, and what Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige thinks about Marvel death in the Cinematic Universe. Read More »

Before we knew there was going to be an Avengers movie, we knew Edgar Wright wanted to make Ant-Man. Wright was on stage at San Diego Comic-Con in 2006 when Kevin Feige first teased the collective Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, Marvel has produced ten films in the same continuity with the eleventh, Avengers: Age of Ultron, currently in production.
Once that’s out, Phase Three will kick off with Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man. It’s a film that has not only been in development for a long time, but, according to Kevin Feige, had some direct influence in how they built the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the first two phases. Because Feige and the rest of Marvel knew what Wright, along with co-writer Joe Cornish, wanted to do with Ant-Man, that helped paved the path for The Avengers. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t really look like anything that’s come before it in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s a good thing for those of us eager to see Marvel branch out, but a potential WTF for those who take comfort in Marvel’s reliability and consistency.
So a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette tries to encourage those in the latter camp to join the former. Producer Kevin Feige and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper promise the film will “blow you away with how unique it is,” while still reassuring viewers that it’s part of the same old MCU. Watch it after the jump.

Kevin Feige is the man with the plan. The president of Marvel Studios is the person most directly responsible for Marvel movies not only being good, but connecting with one another to tell one big story.
His latest success, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is now in theaters and breaking all kinds of box office records. The record-breaking is no surprise but it’s bad luck to say that a few weeks before release, which is when I sat down with Feige to talk all things Marvel.
We discussed a lot of things you’ve already read on the site. The Batman vs. Superman release date, the ending of the film, some of the new characters, the Doctor Strange director short list, the Avengers tower, but now this is the full interview. It has lots of new nuggets, including why Hawkeye isn’t in The Winter Soldier, that exciting name mentioned in the film, if the Netflix shows will tie into the MCU, Paul Bettany, discussion of the post credits scene and more.

If you leave a movie theater talking and thinking about a film, it was probably a good one. That certainly happened this weekend with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In addition to all the crazy happenings early in the film, it leaves its characters in a jaw-dropping spot. A spot that not only has ramifications on Avengers: Age of Ultron and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as well.
Which raises the question, where did the idea for the Captain America: The Winter Soldier ending come from? Whose wild idea was it to pull the plug on something so major? Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told us the whole story, and you can read it below. Major spoilers, obviously. Read More »
In the past seven months, Kevin Feige has tentatively planned out another seven years of Marvel movies.
Last August, the president of Marvel Studios was quoted as saying he had a tentative plan for the Marvel Cinematic Universe through 2021. That’s a lot of movies. Now, a new report says that plan has expanded through 2028. Plus, depending on the potential success of Guardians of the Galaxy this summer, that plan might include spinoffs into solo movies focusing on either Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) or Groot (Vin Diesel). They’ve also discussed spinning the new characters introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron off into their own movies.
Read about these potential Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy spinoffs, plus the new 14-year Marvel plan, below. Read More »
