At the junket for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige offered updates Avengers: Age of Ultron, Doctor Strange, Black Widow, Captain America 3 and more.

There’s one on the potential connection between Avengers: Age of Ultron and Inhumans, conversations about linking the Netflix shows with the MCU, and if the Thor 3 villain was teased on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

To date, every single Marvel Cinematic Universe has been rated PG-13. That’s the sweet spot for big-budget four-quadrant tentpoles like these; a PG-13 lets a movie be edgy enough to attract the grown-ups but not so hardcore it keeps out kids.

On May 6, 2016, Marvel and DC are going head to head at the box office. In one corner is DC’s highly anticipated Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman. In the other corner, an untitled Marvel Phase Three film. Marvel planted their flag on the day in June 2013.
