Five brand new untitled films weren’t enough. Marvel just made it six. After announcing five untitled movies in 2017, 2018 and 2019, Marvel Studios has just added one more date to the mix. They’ve taken the slot vacated earlier Wednesday by The Amazing Spider-Man 4 and now a new, untitled Marvel Studios movie will hit theaters May 4, 2018. That’s three years after Avengers: Age of Ultron, which itself is three years after The Avengers. So is May 4, 2018 the day we’ll see The Avengers 3? Let’s discuss below. Read More »
No company has even close to the character roster Disney has. In addition to their original characters, theme park characters, animated movie characters and Pixar characters they now own all the Marvel characters and Lucasfilm characters. But how to get each of those universes into one video game? Enter Disney Infinity, a genius idea where users can buy collectable statues of characters which make that character playable in a unique, free-roaming video game world. The first version of the game was released in 2013 and became an instant success.
That first iteration of the game only used Disney characters but a 2.0 version of Infinity has just been revealed which will tie in Marvel’s characters. Below, check out the first trailer and images of Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes. Read More »
Spider-Man, Shrek, The Lord of the Rings, Batman, James Bond, Star Wars and Harry Potter all have one thing in common. Their films have grossed less money at the domestic box office than the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But then, in looking at things that way, every film series that isn’t Marvel’s has that in common.
This week’s release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier brought the domestic gross of the nine films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to $2,463,300,000 and counting. That’s more than the eight Harry Potter films, seven Star Wars films (including The Clone Wars), and 24 James Bond films, making it the highest grossing franchise in American history…not adjusted for inflation. Read more details on the Marvel Cinematic Universe box office below. Read More »
Marvel is creating its very own circus, and touring it across the United States. Dubbed The Marvel Experience, the project is a blend of theme park and museum elements housed under a 50,000 square feet dome (about the size of two football fields) that’ll travel to roughly 20 cities in 2014. Fans will be able to ride a 4D motion ride, watch 3D movies, interact with holograms, read motion comic books and more, all in one place. The whole thing is designed to make the customer feel like a superhero in the Marvel universe. Read More »

That Thanos will play a part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward is clear, and has been since we caught a glimpse of him in the post-credits sequence of The Avengers. Exactly how he’ll be worked into the films has been a bit murkier.
It’s assumed that the Mad Titan will appear in The Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers 2, but now Joss Whedon has suggested that he may not actually be the main villain in either. Instead, he’ll be “threaded” into the world as part of a larger arc. Hit the jump to read his comments.

Joss Whedon announced today that he’s officially directing The Avengers, while on stage with J.J. Abrams at San Diego’s Comic-Con. He joked that Marvel didn’t have enough money for a real press release, so he took it up himself to confirm previous reports that he was in talks to direct the film. When pressed for further details, he said that it was way too early to reveal anything.
The news isn’t exactly surprising, but still it’s good to have final confirmation on the matter. As a Whedon fan, I’m excited to see what he can do with the material. Whedon mentioned that he was a huge fan of early Avenger’s comics while growing up, and he seemed understandably excited and humbled at having the opportunity to direct the film.
About a year ago, we reported that Marvel had tapped the famous animation studio Madhouse to create four anime series for release in 2010, the first two of which would be based on Wolverine and Iron Man. The anime projects will be written by renowned writer Warren Ellis, who most recently wrote the kick-ass G.I. Joe: Resolute web shorts. Now that we’re getting so close to the release dates we can finally catch a glimpse of these projects in action, and they certainly look interesting.
Twitch has dug up the teasers on Youtube, which you can find embedded after the break.
