Thor Ragnarok Sets Up Avengers Infinity War

Every single year from here to the end of time will have Marvel movies for fans to look forward to. However, the stakes have been rising ever since Thanos was first teased in a credits scene from The Avengers, followed by the gradual introduction of various Infinity Stones and the golden gauntlet that can turn whoever is wielding them into an unstoppable force.

Fans have assumed that the standalone franchises leading up to Avengers: Infinity War (and Avengers 4) will all have some kind of set up for the next assembly of all of Marvel’s superheroes, but it sounds like the most overt one yet may come from Thor: Ragnarok. A new rumor pegs a certain element of the sequel that could have a major influence on what happens in The Avengers: Infinity War.

But once we reach this culmination of all the Marvel movies that came before it, Kevin Feige says they’re probably going to pull the reins in a bit with regards to the large scale action. Find out more about how Thor Ragnarok sets up The Avengers Infinity War after the jump, but beware of spoilers. Read More »

Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox crossover

At one time, it was thought to be nearly impossible for Marvel Studios to get Spider-Man back into their hands from Sony Pictures in order to bring him into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But earlier this summer, the webslinger made his debut in the MCU with an appearance in Captain America: Civil War, and now Tom Holland is reprising the role in a new franchise for Spidey. This unprecedented deal between Marvel and Sony was exciting not just because it was Spider-Man’s homecoming, but also because it made fans believe that bringing in other Marvel characters like X-Men and Fantastic Four wasn’t impossible either.

However, Kevin Feige has crushed the dreams of that happening anytime soon in a recent interview. Read More »

The Defenders in The Avengers Sequels

In the next few years, the two most anticipated comic book movies on the docket seem to be The Avengers: Infinity War and The Avengers 4. Certainly Justice League is near the top of the list as well, but there has been so much of a bigger lead-up to these sequels in the Marvel cinematic universe that the anticipation is that much higher. Now Kevin Feige might be teasing another reason that this Marvel movie could be the most exciting one yet.

In a recent interview with Kevin Feige, making the rounds in anticipation of the arrival of Doctor Strange, discussion turned to The Avengers: Infinity War and The Avengers: Untitled. In addition to reiterating why the titles of the movie changed so that they’re not each one part of the same story, there may be the vaguest of hints that we’ll see The Defenders in The Avengers sequels in the works.

Luke Cage Family Matters

It’s been over a week since Marvel’s latest series hit Netflix in the form of Luke Cage. Originally Iron Fist was supposed to be the next superhero in the series line-up leading to The Defenders, but after Mike Colter proved to be popular with audiences after his introduction in Jessica Jones, the folks at Marvel decided to shift their plans and give the Hero for Hire his due diligence.

Reviews have been mostly positive on the show, though it’s not perfect. Of course, none of the Marvel shows are, though they do appear to be hitting their mark for the most part. But what if Luke Cage was something different entirely? No, we don’t mean what Quentin Tarantino wanted to do with the characters in a movie he considered making in the 90s. But what if Luke Cage took inspiration from another popular show from that decade. What if Luke Cage was more like Family Matters? Read More »
