It’s hard to keep up with all the new Funko POP figures being released every month. There’s always a new movie or TV show getting a new line of the deformed but adorable collectible figures, and now one man will see multiple versions of himself turned into a new line of Funko POP figures from the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee has already been given several different iterations of Funko POP figures, but we’ve yet to see any of the cameo characters he plays in Marvel Studios movies brought to life. But that will change in November when three new Stan Lee Funko POP figures hit shelves. Check them out below. Read More »
It’s become a tradition at this point: whenever a new entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is released, everyone ranks the movies. And now that everyone on the /Film staff has had a chance to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and spend a few days digesting it, it’s time to completely refresh our list.
We invited the site’s core staff as well as our various contributors to rank all 15 movies in the MCU, with each movie earning points based on its placement in each list. This resulted in a ranked list that reflects the site as a whole rather than the opinion of Just One Person. So here it is: the world’s most accurate ranking of Marvel Studios’ output.

Greetings, true believers. There’s yet another Marvel Cinematic Universe film tearing up the box office – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. As with all MCU films, there’s world-building, in-jokes, action, adventure, and of course, the prerequisite Stan Lee cameo. For more than 40 years now, Lee has been the most recognizable public face for Marvel properties, even the ones he had nothing directly to do with. Much like the Marvel post-credit sequence, a cameo from Lee is expected from fans; fans who will inevitably lean over to their theater mates and loudly whisper, “That’s Stan Lee!” when the moment arises.
Because I’m committed to doing world-changing, issue-driven film writing, I’ve decided to rank every single Stan Lee cameo to date from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For the sake of brevity I’ll only be dealing with the MCU films, and not the wealth of other Marvel-related films and TV projects, all of which Lee appears in one form or another. Excelsior!

Last week we wrote about some of the Mondo prints that would be available at San Diego Comic Con International 2016, and we even shared with you how you could get your own Mondo Star Wars prints without being on the exhibit floor. But as always, Mondo surprises its fans throughout the convention with new onside releases. I thought I’d share with you some of this incredible art, even though many of these are likely sold out at this point (b ut don’t lose all hope, Mondo often saves variants for online release later). Hit the jump to check out the previously uncovered Mondo prints from Comic Con 2016.

Even though the phrase “superhero fatigue” is getting thrown around a lot, and some people have expressed their distaste for the popular genre of films in general, the box office numbers and fanbases are enough to prove that concept wrong. We’re living in a golden age of superhero movies, and while not all of them are outstanding, they’ve never been better or more beloved by general audiences then they are now.
But that doesn’t mean there still aren’t references in comic book movies that are only made for the most hardcore fans to understand. See if you picked up on some of these more obscure superhero movie Easter eggs in films like Superman: The Movie, Spider-Man 2, The Dark Knight and more. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
One of the many reasons people continue to show up in droves to Marvel movies is they want to see what happens next. With each subsequent film, short or TV show, one cohesive story continues to unfold. It’s serial moviemaking.
That means, hypothetically, if you wanted to watch the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as one movie, you could. They were conceived as a single story all linking together, so why not edit them into one huge movie? You can and that’s exactly what some Marvel fans have done. However, while that’s cool on its own, they’ve gone one step further. They’ve created a video letting people know how to make their own edit of Phase One in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as one, chronological movie. Check out the how to Marvel Phase One Timeline video below. Read More »
