Walt Disney Pictures has released a new deleted/extended scene from Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The scene, which would have taken place in the second half of the movie (so, yeah, spoiler warning) features Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) disabling security protocols and dumping S.H.I.E.L.D. data onto the internet. Everything on Hydra, everything on S.H.I.E.L.D. — everything.
This also means that Natasha Romanoff would also be revealing a lot of her own secrets. The secrets tease a look at Black Widow’s Marvel Cinematic Universe backstory. Could it have been seeds for an eventual Black Widow movie prequel? Watch the deleted/extended scene and lets explore the possibilities further after the jump.

This story and podcast was published on May 17th 2012, just after the release of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. I thought it would be fun to take a look back at our predictions from 27 months ago to see how things are panning out for phase two and three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some of the predictions seem obvious in hindsight, like Germain predicting that Thanos wouldn’t be the villain of Avengers 2 and Jeff foreseeing that Thanos’ appearance during the Avengers end credits stinger was probably a set-up for another film, Guardians of the Galaxy. But one must remember this was recorded before a Guardians of the Galaxy movie was even announced, which happened months later at 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. Enjoy!

You may wonder why people sleep on concrete overnight at San Diego Comic-Con to see Marvel’s Hall H panel every year. You can find a small answer below. Besides the awesome news and huge stars Marvel parades across the stage, the studio is all about theatrics. The lights go down, a video comes up, and 6,500 people have no idea what’s about to play. In 2014, it was a retrospective sizzle reel to set up what’s about to happen. Marvel played a five-plus minute retrospective to pump up the fans and pass the torch to this weekend’s Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy.
We can’t duplicate the electricity of 6,500 people clapping and cheering in unison, or the fatigue and stench that results from the long wait to get in to Hall H. But you can watch the Marvel Comic Con sizzle reel below. Read More »
Like all the other Marvel movies before it, this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy is jam-packed with Easter Eggs. An “easter egg” is a hidden visual or audio cue that doesn’t add to a story, and isn’t necessary to see on first watch, but adds to repeat viewings by winking to the fans. Marvel is great at this, stuffing their films with Easter Eggs both very obvious and rather subtle, making all of their movies crazy rewatchable.
The problem with most of these Marvel Easter Eggs is they go by so fast, you often can’t see them until the films hit Blu-ray. That’s why this new video from MTV, Every Marvel Easter Egg Explained In One Video, only goes through last year’s Thor: The Dark World. Even so, it’s still an awesome watch and surely includes some things even the most hard-core fans might have missed. Read More »
The instant Marvel Studios confirmed they were making a Guardians of the Galaxy movie, we all saw into the future. This new super team would eventually meet that other super team, The Avengers. How and when was the bigger question but with Guardians of the Galaxy finally hitting theaters this weekend, we at least now know it’s in the works.
In a new interview, Guardians of the Galaxy one and two writer/director James Gunn said he knows the plan for the eventual crossover but teased that it might not be a full compliment of team members on either side. Read the Avengers Guardians of the Galaxy crossover quotes below. Read More »
After reading Joss Whedon‘s screenplay for The Avengers, star Tom Hiddleston (who plays the villainous Loki) wrote a sweet e-mail to the filmmaker/scribe which has somehow found its way online for all to read. Read Tom Hiddleston’s e-mail to Joss Whedon after the jump.

Guardians of the Galaxy takes place literally worlds away from The Avengers, and yet both superhero teams occupy the same universe at the same time and even know some of the same people. It wouldn’t be totally inconceivable for them to cross paths at some point, and recent comments from Kevin Feige suggest they may do just that.
If you’re holding out hope for the either group to join forces with the X-Men, however, you’re probably out of luck. In the same interview, Feige downplayed the possibility of an Avengers / X-Men crossover. Sorry, Hugh Jackman. Hit the jump to see what Feige had to say.
