star wars on amazon

Amazon wants you to sign up for a Prime membership. So much so that they’ve realized they can withhold certain in-demand items in order to draw hapless consumers in. As a result, Amazon has now made Star Wars and Marvel DVDs and Blu-rays Prime exclusives. In other words, without prime, it’s going to be harder to buy Marvel or Star Wars on Amazon.

Marvel Studios Legacy Featurette

Sometimes you’ll see a trailer describe a movie’s director as a “visionary filmmaker.” That term is rarely applied to a producer, but that’s truly the best description of Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, the mega-producer who built a multi-billion cinematic empire out of his idea to make a series of blockbuster movies that feature interconnected characters and storylines.

As we continue our trip toward the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios has looked back on its 10 years of existence so far and appears to be feeling a little nostalgic. Today, they released a new behind-the-scenes featurette that includes interviews with the filmmakers and casts of many of the MCU’s biggest hits. Read More »

Thanos origin

Update: Turns out io9 was misinformed on this one. The publisher of this novel originally told them the novel was part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon, but they’ve since reached out to reveal that it’s not actually canonical. Our original story follows.

Avengers Infinity War poster

If you’ve paid attention to studio-produced movie posters over the past couple of decades, you’ve probably noticed that many of them are hideous images that are basically Photoshopped to oblivion. While Marvel Studios tends to make enjoyable, crowd-pleasing movies, the studio is often one of the worst offenders when it comes to creating posters. For a movie with as many characters as Avengers: Infinity War, it was practically a given that the poster would be overcrowded and kind of an eyesore – but we didn’t expect it to have an easily-preventable error in plain sight.

Take a look at the flaw below, along with a batch of new Empire Magazine covers featuring some of the film’s heavy hitters.
