If you’ve been watching the Marvel movies so far, you won’t find any new information here. But you will find a series of quips trying to describe the motion picture phenomenon in eight minutes.

A couple years ago, Robert Downey Jr. hinted that he might be done with superhero movies once he hit age 50. That birthday arrived this past spring, and thankfully Downey is currently filming a key role in Captain America: Civil War, leaving one more film in his latest contract with Marvel for an appearance in one part of The Avengers: Infinity War.
But Marvel Studios didn’t lock down the actor who turned Iron Man and Tony Stark into a big screen icon, launching their cinematic universe, without paying a hefty price tag. In fact, Downey just landed a spot on the annual list of the wealthiest celebrities as the eighth highest paid actor, and it all came from his paychecks for Captain America: Civil War and The Avengers: Age of Ultron. How much did Robert Downey Jr make? Find out after the jump. Read More »

Even though Avengers: Age of Ultron just hit theaters nearly two months ago, Marvel Studios has to keep its eye on the future, and that includes the two-part sequel Avengers: Infinity War. Production on the two-part release won’t begin until late next year at the earliest, but since we’ve heard from Chris Evans that the shoot will last a whopping nine months, it doesn’t hurt to get a head start.
And if a new casting call is to be believed, Marvel is already looking to assemble on-screen talent for Avengers: Infinity War, and with the casting call comes the rumor that a key Marvel villain other than the presumed bad guy Thanos (Josh Brolin) will be terrorizing the cinematic universe. Find out who the other Avengers: Infinity War villain might be after the jump. Read More »

Back in April, during publicity rounds for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, some new information surfaced regarding the future of The Incredible Hulk, and whether or not Marvel Studios had plans for Mark Ruffalo to get his own solo Hulk movie.
A somewhat surprising reason surfaced as to why a new Hulk movie wasn’t in the works. Ruffalo said that Universal (which made the two previous big-screen outings for the big guy) still had the rights to any future Hulk movies, putting a kink in any plans Marvel might have. However, it turns out that’s not entirely true, and Universal may not be holding up Marvel at all. Find out more about the Universal Hulk rights after the jump! Read More »
The folks at How It Should Have Ended previously skewered The Avengers: Age of Ultron by poking fun at one of the trailers for the Marvel Studios sequel. But now that the full film has been out in theaters for over a month, and the team has had a chance to soak it in a few times, they’re taking aim at the whole enchilada.
While the gang usually takes a look at the ending of any given film and plays around with it, this time their imagined ending for The Avengers: Age of Ultron would have actually seen the movie ending in the first act.
