Click through to see what Hiddleston had to say about the future of Loki, his thoughts on Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Hela (Cate Blanchett), and of course his relationship with Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Read More »

The appeal of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been, ever since its earliest days, the promise of watching so many seemingly disparate characters fight and co-exist and come together to save the day in a shared world where the events of one adventure can have a profound effect on one another. And then they pulled if off and we got spoiled and the rest of Marvel Studios’ “Phase 3” has to find a way to get us excited all over again. And you know what? This new video, which teases Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War, feels like a healthy injection of fuel into the Marvel hype machine. No one can sell themselves quite like Marvel can.

Today brought Doctor Strange, Marvel’s most recent addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to Digital HD. Since Marvel has some of the most rabid fans, they’ve already been combing over the special features for the home video release of the mystical superhero’s first adventure. One such feature includes a sneak peek at what’s in store for Phase 3 of the MCU, including some new concept art for the next installment of the Thor franchise.
Thor: Ragnarok is going to mix the franchise up a bit by taking Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on an adventure to the other side of the universe instead of heading back to Earth for the bulk of the action. Asgard is facing its biggest threat yet, but perhaps the toughest challenge the God of Thunder has to face before that is battling The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), this time in a cosmic gladiator arena. The new piece of Thor Ragnarok concept art shows Thor and Hulk battling yet again after their first encounter in The Avengers, but it looks a little more intense this time. Check it out. Read More »

The saddest man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t Loki with his daddy issues or Bruce Banner with his self-loathing or even Bucky Barnes with his unreliable brain and unfortunately highly effective assassin training. No, if you ask me, it’s Darryl, the poor ordinary schmoe who somehow got stuck rooming with Thor while the rest of the Avengers were off having their Civil War.
As we saw in the first mockumentary short unveiled at Comic-Con, Thor might be a great superhero but he is a terrible roommate. Things don’t look much better for sad Darryl in Team Thor: Part 2, where it’s revealed Thor is not so much into the “paying rent in actual money” part of living with someone. Watch the new Thor Darryl short below. Read More »

In April 2016, I visited the Atlanta set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While on set, we visited the art room, watched a sizzle reel and talked to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige in depth about the upcoming James Gunn-directed sequel. I am excited to finally present to you our full roundtable interview with Feige, which includes a lot of information on Guardians 2 and the future of the Marvel movie universe.
During our intervidw, Feige explains why Groot hasn’t gotten bigger, what baby Groot will sound like, the events that have happened between the last film and Vol 2, teases what role Kurt Russell‘s character Ego plays in the film, Yondu and The Ravenger’s expanded presence in the sequel, how the film’s bad guys (Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha and Chris Sullivan is Taserface) fit into the plot, how much of the galaxy we will see in Vol 2, will Thanos’ presence be felt, Mantis’s role in this story, how this film will play into Avengers: Infinity War, the involvement of Nova Corps, will this film be as crazy as the first movie, how did the story for Vol 2 come about, how does Quill’s Awesome Mix 2 music play into the sequel, the evolution of Marvel movie villains and addresses the #WheresBlackWidow backlash and how they promise their merchandise will be more inclusive and representative of the movies in the future. All this and more, read our entire Kevin Feige Guardians 2 interview after the jump.

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

2017 marks the first year Marvel Studios will be putting out three MCU movies, and while we don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves here, we’ve gotta say they all look pretty great so far. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer was a crowd-pleaser. The Spider-Man: Homecoming one felt like a breath of fresh air. And Thor: Ragnarok? Personally, I think it’s got the potential to be the best of the bunch.
With Thor: Ragnarok‘s release date still ten months away, it’ll probably be a while before the marketing campaign really kicks into high gear. But Disney’s starting the year with a tiny taste of what’s to come. The studio has finally revealed an official Thor: Ragnarok synopsis that solidifies some of the story details, and a new Thor: Ragnarok behind-the-scenes photo that reminds us Chris Hemsworth‘s bare arms are still some of the best special effects this franchise has to offer.

The first weekend of theatrical releases in 2017 arrives in just a couple days, but since it’s January, we’re still getting rollover from awards season mixed with garbage that doesn’t deserve a release date at any other time.
