Avengers Infinity War Honest Trailer

Now that Avengers: Infinity War has come home for you to watch over and over again, it’s time to crack some jokes at the expense of what will likely be the most successful movie of 2018, even if it didn’t make quite as much in the United States as Black Panther did on his first solo outing.

So settle in and laugh at Thanos as he tries to destroy half of all life in the universe, a task that has taken him so long that his skin has changed color twice since he was introduced in the mid-credits scene of The Avengers. Read More »

Avengers: Infinity War is now available on Blu-ray and DVD, and to mark the occasion, Marvel Studios has released some clips from the superhero sequel’s special features.

Thanos visual effects

13 visual effects vendors collaborated to make 18 digital characters for Avengers: Infinity War, and Josh Brolin‘s villainous Thanos is the most important of them all. The entire movie hinges on that performance, and if you don’t buy him as a living, breathing character, Marvel would have had their own Steppenwolf problem to deal with. Thankfully, Thanos ended up being one of the best CGI villains in cinema history – thanks in large part to the hard-working team at VFX company Digital Domain.

To promote the superhero sequel’s home video release, /Film was invited to take a tour of the company’s L.A. facility and learn the steps they took to bring the Mad Titan to life. I brought a couple of cameras along and put together an in-depth video about how the Thanos visual effects were created and incorporated into the movie.

This goes far beyond those videos that simply show a scene with one VFX layer at a time added into the final version. This is detailed stuff, and I hope you check it out below. Read More »

Thor's Roommate Darryl in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

There were plenty of people who didn’t survive the mighty snap of Thanos at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, but as time has gone on, we’ve learned about some of the people who didn’t turn to dust when the mad titan snapped his fingers and wiped out half of life in the entire universe. Now one more survivor has been confirmed thanks to a lovely birthday greeting.

You might remember that during the events of Captain America: Civil War, the mighty Thor found himself displaced in Australia, forcing him to crash with an office worker named Darryl (Daley Pearson). Now the god of thunder’s former roommate has emerged as a survivor of the snap of Thanos to wish Thor a happy birthday. Read More »

Marvel Film Festival

We all know Marvel Studios is currently celebrating the 10th anniversary of the launch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Why Thanos waited

Six years. That’s how long it took between audiences’ first glimpse of Thanos hovering in the shadows during the mid-credits scene of The Avengers and the game-changing destruction he rained down in this year’s Avengers: Infinity War. So…what’s with the delay? Why didn’t the eight-foot-tall alien warrior take things into his own hands even sooner?

It turns out there’s a good reason for why Thanos waited so long, and Infinity War co-writer Stephen McFeely explains it below.

Spider-Man Far From Home Suit

Spider-Man: Far From Home is in production right now in London. Tom Holland and the rest of the cast are on set and hard at work to bring the second installment of the Spider-Man franchise to theaters in the summer of 2019. Details are sparse on the sequel other than the fact that it will take Peter Parker and his classmates abroad for a summer vacation, hence the title that Tom Holland “accidentally” revealed not too long ago. But a new detail has come to light thanks to a charity campaign promotion with Tom Holland in Spider-Man gear on set. But it’s not the Spider-Man suit you might have been expecting. Read More »
