Last weekend we got confirmation from Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige himself that every single film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from Iron Man through Spider-Man: Far From Home, would be released in a massive box set. This collection of films is now officially called The Infinity Saga, and when Marvel Studios took the stage in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, they took a victory lap with an awesome sizzle reel looking back at the entirety of their work so far. Now you can watch it for yourself and remember everything The Avengers have gone through. Read More »
The year is 2019, and The Great Spider-Crisis rages on. Despite an early report which suggested that Spider-Man would remain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as long as Far From Home made more than a billion dollars at the box office, and despite the fact that that movie did indeed cross that financial threshold, Disney and Sony could not come to an agreement on the future of the character. Translation: say goodbye to Tom Holland interacting with heroes like Captain Marvel and Doctor Strange on screen again, because he’s now relegated to Sony’s burgeoning cinematic universe, where Venom and Morbius are hanging out.
In a new interview, director Jon Favreau, the filmmaker behind the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie and regular co-star of Holland’s Spider-Man films, hints that there may be a chance that the whole thing gets resolved and Spidey returns to the MCU after all. Read the full Jon Favreau Spider-Man comment below.

What sort of embarrassing, unseen footage lurks in the editing bays at Marvel Studios? Mega-producer and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige knows all too well what works and what doesn’t, and his ability to delineate between those two categories has been a key factor in the success of Marvel Studios’ first three phases, collectively known as the “Infinity Saga.”
You may have assumed that those never-before-seen moments would never see the light of day, but in a recent interview, Feige teases that the company will soon unveil “some things that we’ve been too humiliated to show” thus far. Read his full comments below. Read More »
The Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con revealed Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, unlike the previous phases, this one didn’t culminate with a big event movie like The Avengers. Kevin Feige explained why that’s the case not long after the panel concluded, and part of the reason might be to allow for a bigger lead-up to what’s coming in Phase 5.
Following the panel, Kevin Feige confirmed that Phase 5 is already planned as part of Marvel Studios’ previously teased five-year plan. And it sounds like that will end up leading to a very different iteration of The Avengers than we’ve seen before. Read More »
The Marvel Cinematic Universe was back in San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H this year, where president Kevin Feige announced a combination of ten films and Disney+ shows coming out between now and November 2021. There’s a lot to be excited about even beyond the properties that received full presentations (Blade?! Fantastic Four?! Mutants?!), but before we move forward into the next phase of the MCU, it’s worth spending a bit of time reminiscing on the 13-year history that the MCU has already had with San Diego Comic-Con.

Here’s the breakdown of every movie and TV show that’s coming and when you’ll see them. Read More »
Several months ago, we exclusively revealed that Marvel Studios was developing a What If? animated anthology series that would explore alternate stories in the MCU like “what if Thanos had joined the Avengers?” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced some new details about the series from Comic-Con’s Hall H stage tonight, including the fact that over two dozen MCU actors are coming back to lend their voices to the show and that Jeffrey Wright has joined the cast as The Watcher. Read on to find out what we learned. Read More »
Even though Avengers: Endgame ended up not being able to topple James Cameron’s Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all time, Marvel Studios still has plenty to be proud of. This year’s colossal sequel, which marked the culmination of more than a decade of superhero movies, turned out to be pretty damn great, and the studio is extending its victory lap beyond the sure-to-be-adoring crowd of Comic-Con’s Hall H on a nine-city tour across the country, bringing special guests along for the festivities.

The specifics of major Hollywood contracts are notoriously difficult to ascertain, and the occasional insights we do receive often come from actors revealing how many movies they have left in a particular franchise. But a new report has uncovered a Spider-Man contract stipulation which would allow Sony to wriggle out of its deal with Marvel Studios and once again give Spidey’s original studio home full autonomy over the character’s cinematic adventures. Good thing that won’t happen. Read More »
We know that Miles Morales, the half-black/half-Latino kid who will one day become Spider-Man, exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Donald Glover’s low-level criminal Aaron Davis obliquely references Miles during an interrogation scene, saying that he doesn’t want weapons on the neighborhood streets because his nephew lives around there. Miles was introduced to the film world in last year’s Oscar-winning animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but we’ve still yet to see him in the flesh on the big screen.
But we may not have to wait for long, because Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home lays out a path for how Miles could be incorporated into the MCU. Read More »
