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.

The largest Lego set of all time is a recreation of the Taj Mahal. It comes in at a whopping 5,922 pieces and when it was released cost $300. So, by that cost equation, if the latest Lego Ideas creation receives 10,000 votes, and is approved and distributed, it could cost upwards of $1000.

When I look back at many of my favorite films, I often find a common thread. One in particular is Jon Favreau. The writer and star of my favorite movie Swingers got his start in another personal fave, Rudy, and went on to direct one of the most important movies of the past decade, Iron Man. Beyond that he’s made a holiday classic in Elf, starred on numerous iconic TV shows, directed TV pilots, the guy has done it all.
Recently, the failure of Cowboys and Aliens made Favreau go back to his indie roots and make Chef. It’s a small, independent film he wrote, directed and stars in that shows Favreau is still as passionate and skillful as ever. It’s really good.
Favreau recently took to Reddit to do an Ask Me Anything, and we’ve pulled news tidbits, fun stories, quotes and more. Among those are an update on casting his next film, Disney’s The Jungle Book, some stories about making Iron Man, Rudy, his thoughts on the cancellation of Revolution, Ben Affleck as Batman, restarting Dinner for Five, Ant-Man, directing a Star Wars movie, handing off the Iron Man franchise and making his new film, Chef. Read our Jon Favreau AMA recap below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Before we knew there was going to be an Avengers movie, we knew Edgar Wright wanted to make Ant-Man. Wright was on stage at San Diego Comic-Con in 2006 when Kevin Feige first teased the collective Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, Marvel has produced ten films in the same continuity with the eleventh, Avengers: Age of Ultron, currently in production.
Once that’s out, Phase Three will kick off with Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man. It’s a film that has not only been in development for a long time, but, according to Kevin Feige, had some direct influence in how they built the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the first two phases. Because Feige and the rest of Marvel knew what Wright, along with co-writer Joe Cornish, wanted to do with Ant-Man, that helped paved the path for The Avengers. Read More »

When Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters April 4, be on the look out for Tony Stark’s Avengers Tower. As a hidden Easter Egg.
At the end of The Avengers, the Stark Tower was decimated, leaving only the “A” as a tease of what’s to come. There was also a brief scene where Stark is clearly seen working on an Avengers Tower. In Iron Man 3, Stark never visits New York as he’s plenty busy in California, Tennessee and Florida but that doesn’t mean the tower hasn’t been under construction. Speaking to /Film, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told us the completed tower makes a brief cameo in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read More »

To date, every single Marvel Cinematic Universe has been rated PG-13. That’s the sweet spot for big-budget four-quadrant tentpoles like these; a PG-13 lets a movie be edgy enough to attract the grown-ups but not so hardcore it keeps out kids. But as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently revealed, getting that rating has been a trickier task for some films than others.
While the latest Marvel outing, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, easily made the PG-13 cut, Feige revealed that 2012’s The Avengers initially got an R rating from the MPAA. The filmmakers recut the movie and submitted it again — only to get another R rating. Hit the jump to find out which specific scene was the sticking point.
