If you’ve murdered someone or have a treasure hidden somewhere, the last person you probably want to tell is Vin Diesel. The actor just can’t seem to keep many secrets to himself, especially when it comes to future projects that he may be doing at Marvel Studios.
For the past year, Diesel has been doing a little more than teasing that in addition to his voice role as Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, he might have something to do with the forthcoming film The Inhumans. The project was recently rumored to be in danger of getting axed, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, especially if we continue to believe Diesel’s pretty obvious hints. Read More »
UPDATE: HitFix has spoken to what they call “an unimpeachable source” on this matter, and they’re saying this rumor is not true at all. Marvel Studios is still planning to make the film. And to clear this matter up even more, they’re saying that there are certain elements of The Inhumans universe that are off limits to Agents of SHIELD, therefore any clash between Marvel films and television has been exaggerated.

Thanks to Marvel Studios, scenes that happen in the middle of or after the credits have become something more often expected than not when it comes to blockbusters with sequel potential. And along with those scenes, Marvel has made a habit of having stylish end credits sequences roll after the end of each of their movies. So how are they made?

Avengers: Age of Ultron had a lot of moving pieces. The 141-minute long superhero movie has been criticized by some as being overstuffed, but once there was a much longer cut — which might’ve given the film more breathing room.

When Chris Evans was sought after and eventually won the role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avengers, some fans were a little bent out of shape about that because the actor had already played the Human Torch in 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four. To some, it just seemed like overkill to have the same actor play two different Marvel superheroes.

And in the end, Chris Evans has turned out to one of the best parts of the Marvel cinematic universe, and easily one of the favorite Avengers on the team. So it all worked out.
But now that the Marvel cinematic universe has been established, is there a chance that we could see actors playing two Marvel characters in that comic book world? Thor: The Dark World star Zachary Levi reveals that he has spoken to Kevin Feige about that very question, and the answer might surprise you. Read More »
