Captain America: The First Avenger stood out from most of the comic book movie pack because it offered something a bit different. In addition to being yet another superhero origin story, it was a WWII movie that heartily embraced the ’40s setting, rather than simply using it as window dressing.
The sequel, subtitled The Winter Soldier, will go into production soon with Chris Evans reprising his role as Cap, and Anthony and Joe Russo stepping in to direct. The film takes its title, and presumably much of its storyline, from the Ed Brubaker-penned storyline of the same name, in which Cap’s WWII sidekick Bucky (Sebastian Stan), thought dead, is revived as a Soviet assassin.
If that makes the Cap sequel sound like something that could be a Bourne sequel you might not be too far off, especially given the way Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is describing the movie. Read More »

Phase Two of Marvel’s Cinematic Unvierse gets underway this spring with Iron Man 3, but Marvel Studios didn’t get where it was by looking only at the short term. So Kevin Feige is already looking to Phase Three, which will kick off after The Avengers 2 is released in 2015. The only film confirmed so far for that next step has been Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man, but Feige revealed in a recent interview that a Doctor Strange film would “definitely” also be part of it. Read his comments about both films after the jump.

While the first Iron Man had the unenviable task of starting a whole new phase of Marvel movies, Iron Man 3 has it even tougher. Shane Black‘s film is the first to follow the uber-success of The Avengers and kick off the second phase in the Cinematic Universe. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) now functions in a world where he’s been into space, fought aliens and is friends with a god and a Hulk. In all likelihood, those facts have changed him, and they might affect his next movie, too.
In response to that, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige says yes and no. Yes, the knowledge of the greater universe beyond his own vision has changed Tony Stark in Iron Man 3, but no, the film won’t feature any members of S.H.I.E.L.D. or the Avengers. After the jump, read his quotes on those points, the tone of the film and Ben Kingsley’s turn as the Mandarin. Read More »

After two semi-successful attempts at bringing Bruce Banner’s The Hulk to the big screen, most everyone agreed Joss Whedon finally got it right in The Avengers. However, the argument was maybe it worked this time because Hulk was a supporting character instead of the star. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige didn’t agree with that and threw around the idea of possibly making another standalone Hulk movie in the future, this one starring Mark Ruffalo who is under a multi-picture contract with Marvel.
The questions are when would that happen and what story would it tell? In a new interview with MTV, Feige said he’s still interested in doing a Hulk movie but that it would likely be after The Avengers 2, making it part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Three. He also said popular comic book storylines such as Planet Hulk and World War Hulk were definitely possibilites. After the jump, read his exact quotes and how these stories could lead into The Avengers 3. Read More »
Ever since his reveal during the credits of Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers, fans have enjoyed discussing Thanos and his impact in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His inclusion was spurred by Whedon, who called him Marvel’s “most powerful and fascinating villain.” Speculation has all but settled on the fact that the character will somehow appear in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy and then roll into The Avengers 2 but, with both of those films several years away, no one would dare confirm that.
Then, last week, the character’s creator – Jim Starlin – reportedly did. That lead MTV to ask Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about the character and you can read his quotes below.
And while Thanos might be the driving force behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the coming films, The Avengers themselves are going to be driving some serious merchandising coin into the pockets of Disney. It’ll soon become the company’s primary toy franchise on shelves all over the world. Read more after the jump. Read More »
Earlier this week, Marvel Studios was caught purchasing domain names for all kinds of merchandise related to Guardians of the Galaxy, a property that everyone from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige all the way down has admitted was in the works. They’ve even admitted the credits scene of The Avengers was a tease towards that film but nothing had been made official. That will likely be the company line until San Diego Comic-Con but Latino Review is exclusively reporting that Guardians of the Galaxy will, in fact, be Marvel’s second 2014 movie.
They have a ton of other information too. Read about it below. Read More »
