avengers endgame title

With the reveal of the title of Avengers 4 as Avengers: Endgame last month, our months of breathless speculation was finally put to rest. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be a little sour that the folks at Marvel Studios led us on a merry chase for so long. You may have blocked it out of your memory, but it was one denial after another any time we got close to the actual title, which was speculated mere months after the release of Avengers: Infinity War. Now that the beans have been spilled, Marvel chief Kevin Feige is happy to talk about the title — specifically, how long they had locked down the Endgame title, which apparently was a done deal before they had even begun filming Infinity War.

Marvel Fox Properties

There are a lot of moving parts and potential hazards with the huge Disney-Fox deal expected to close at the end of January, but the one thing most people seem to care most about is seeing Fox’s Marvel characters interacting with the Disney’s Marvel characters.

According to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, development on bringing the Fox characters into the MCU will likely start in early 2019.

quantum realm

From the moment the Quantum Realm was introduced in 2015’s Ant-Man, it was clear it was going to play an important role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is teasing the Quantum Realm’s involvement in the future of the MCU, and while the implications are obvious for Avengers 4 and maybe even another Ant-Man movie, there’s also the possibility that it could factor in to the Marvel shows on Disney’s streaming service as well.

Marvel Studios Streaming Shows

While fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are rabid with curiosity about what Avengers 4 will bring to the big screen next summer, they’re also wondering about the growing slate of Marvel Studios programming that is being developed for Disney’s upcoming streaming service. Thankfully, Kevin Feige has provided a little bit of insight, albeit cryptically and vaguely. Read More »

Peyton Reed interview

Peyton Reed, the director of Down with Love and drummer of a long defunct Smiths cover band, once again brought some feel-good laughs to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Ant-Man and the Wasp. The sequel was a bit bigger, a little looser, and even Scott Lang was funnier, but Reed and all involved still managed to keep it as contained and as cleanly told as the first movie. Reed’s Ant-Man still ain’t going big for the sake of going big.

Reed basically made what was a large-scale studio comedy with more emphasis on laughs than action. Ant-Man and the Wasp is a buddy comedy, not another save the world story. With smaller but more personal stakes, Reed delivered a sequel that does a lot more than check boxes. We recently had a brief conversation with the director about the sequel, mostly focused on his days in a Smiths cover band, notes from Marvel President Kevin Feige, working with Evangeline Lilly, and two of his past movies.

venom director

You likely could’ve guessed this, but Venom director Ruben Fleischer has made it perfectly clear: Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios had nothing to do with Venom. Fleischer is quick to add that he hopes one day, Feige and the MCU will play a hand in Venom‘s future. For now, though, Tom Hardy‘s brain-eating slime monster is on his own.

While we know little about the plot — or even the title — of Avengers 4, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has offered us a new hint at what to expect with at the end of climactic superhero sequel. And it’s an Avengers 4 ending befitting a movie that we’ve been building up to for 10-plus years and 21 Marvel movies.

Warning: Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War follow.

When a Marvel Studios movie is set to hit theaters, we often times get the opportunity to sit down in a room with the man responsible for it all and ask him anything we want about that film and the future of the company. With Ant-Man and The Wasp, it was strangely different than past conversations with Kevin Feige, as the whole Marvel Universe is in flux following the events of Avengers: Infinity War and this Ant-Man sequel is one of the most standalone stories Marvel has created to date. There is a reason Marvel isn’t having a presentation at Comic-Con this year – there isn’t much to reveal at this time as it all hinges on the next couple films.

Our conversation began with us talking about Taika Waititi‘s production office decor of E.T., and continued on through Star Wars rumors, the Quantum Realm, de-aging technology and the idea of using it for prequels, how Marvel planned Ant-Man and the Wasp alongside Infinity War, the possibility of Doctor Strange in Spider-Man: Far From Home, how they plan on marketing the Spider-Man sequel before the release of Avengers 4, how involved with Feige be with the Disney Streaming service, designing sets with theme park adaptations in mind, playing with audiences expectations, and how they shot that after credits scene.

Doctor Strange in Spider-Man Far From Home

We don’t know much about Marvel Studios and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel. Spider-Man: Far From Home will film in London and feature Peter Parker on a summer vacation with friends across the pond. We’ve been told the story picks up a few minutes after the events of the yet-to-be-titled Avengers 4, and Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, a disgruntled special effects wizard and stunt man who has decided to use his VFX magic to become the next supervillain.

This has led many fans to believe that Doctor Strange might make an appearance in the webslinger’s sequel. After all, Strange has a sanctum in London, and you might think Peter Parker would seek the help of a wizard to fight someone who appears to have magical powers. Talking to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, who seemed to be in a debunking mood, I was able to pose this question and actually get a definite answer. Will we see Doctor Strange in Spider-Man Far From Home?
