The newest trailer for Captain America: Civil War finally gave us our first glimpse of the new Spider-Man, and fans couldn’t be more excited to see what he brings to the table, even if the new suit has been a little divisive among them. And now that Marvel no longer has to be secretive about Spider-Man actually being in the movie, Anthony & Joe Russo have opened up about the opportunity to bring the webslinger into the Marvel cinematic universe.
But beyond that, the Russo brothers have also talked about what’s in store as far as the credits scenes in Captain America: Civil War, and they hint at the possibility of there being three of them for the first time ever. There’s a chance there will be teases for the Black Panther and Captain Marvel movies, but also more than likely, The Avengers: Infinity War will be teased as well, and the Russos talk about their next two-part Marvel sequel as well.

Ever since Thanos was revealed in the mid-credits scene for The Avengers, fans have been waiting to see just what kind of havoc the comic book villain was going to wreak in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character finally appeared again in Guardians of the Galaxy, voiced by Josh Brolin, but he pretty much just did a lot of sitting and threatening while everyone else did his work for him. Plus, he hasn’t gotten ahold of any of the Infinity Stones. He even lost the one he already had in his possession, giving it away to Loki.
But as the credits scene for The Avengers: Age of Ultron teased, we’re on the verge of Thanos taking matters into his own hands now. However, according to Kevin Feige, that doesn’t mean we’re going to see the Mad Titan pop up in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Read More »
Yesterday, Marvel Studios announced a bunch of changes and additions to their release calendar. Among the announcements were an Ant-Man sequel titled Ant-Man and the Wasp set for 2018, new release dates for Black Panther and Captain Marvel and three yet-to-be-announced Marvel movies scheduled for 2020. So the question I’ve been getting over the last 24 hours is this: What does Marvel Studios have planned for 2020?

Last night I attended an event where Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were in attendance answering questions about Avengers: Age of Ultron and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can read everything they said about plotting the Infinity Stones in the first two and upcoming phase three of the MCU, and where they are headed in The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 in our other post. In this post you can find all the interesting answers that didn’t fit thematically in the other post:
- How does it feel to be able to include Spider-Man in the MCU?
- How was Spider-Man inserted into the plan they already had leading towards The Avengers: Infinity War?
- Does Marvel have plans for Fantastic Four and X-Men in the chance they get the rights back?
- Will The Marvel television characters or storylines ever appear in the Marvel movies? Would characters be recast?
- Why didn’t Captain Marvel and other Marvel character have a cameo at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron?
- When will Guardians of the Galaxy cross over with the earth bound Marvel heroes?
- When will we get more casting announcements for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2?
- How does Howard The Duck make it back to Earth?
- When will Marvel One Shots short films return?

Disney held an event at Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles on Tuesday night to celebrate the home video release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (which hits stores and VOD on October 2nd 2015). They unveiled a new Tyler Stout print for the film, and Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were on hand for an extensive 26 minute question and answer session.
As with most of these Question and Answer sessions, the queries thrown at Feige began at the Avengers sequel but quickly diverted to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Avengers: Infinity War and Jon Watts’ Spider-Man reboot. Its so much that we’re going to divide this into two posts. This first post will focus on how Marvel plotted the Infinity stones in phase one and two and the upcoming phase three leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Here is what is answered:
- When will we see the final two Infinity Stones?
- When did they know that they would start introducing the Infinity Gems?
- Was making the Tesseract an Infinity Stone planned after the fact?
- Will Avengers: Infinity War be an end of the story told thus far?
- Has the entire story leading to the conclusion in The Avengers: Infinity War Part II been planned out already?
- Were the Avengers: Age of Ultron visions a prediction of the future that could come in Infinity War?
After the jump you can check out the Tyler Stout Avengers Age of Ultron poster that premiered at the event. You can also watch the entire question and answer session captured on video. I believe I was the only one in attendance who was recording video, so while you might read some choice quotes elsewhere — this is a bit of an exclusive.

On October 2nd, Marvel Studios brings The Avengers: Age of Ultron to Blu-Ray and DVD, and with it comes a slew of new special features for fans to dive into, taking a look at the making of the blockbuster sequel. We’ve already seen the gag reel with your favorite superheroes messing up some takes, and now a new featurette has surfaced online from the home video release.
The featurette is called “Infinity Six” and it gives fans some background on the Infinity Stones in addition to recapping which ones we’ve seen in the Marvel cinematic universe (so far there have been four, with two more unaccounted for still). The video also features that quick credits clip fro Age of Ultron with Thanos finally deciding to get in the Infinity Stone collecting game himself.

Last year there were some rumblings that Chris Evans might be stepping away from acting, including his role as Captain America for Marvel Studios after he completed the final films in his current contract, the last being The Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 in 2019. The actor wanted to focus more on directing, but he eventually pulled back on thoughts of retirement and wasn’t necessarily eager to leave Captain America behind.
Now it sounds like his tune has changed entirely as a new interview has Evans flat out saying, “Listen, if Marvel wants me they got me.” Chris Evans not leaving Captain America certainly shakes up some theories fans have had about his passing the shield, but it’s definitely good news. Read More »
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is quickly expanding, and maybe we’re taking for granted that it will all collide and connect at some point. When Marvel announced the two-part two-film event The Avengers: Infinity War, we all assumed that we’d see all of the Marvel heroes in this one epic story. And we might see both the Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers in those movies, but don’t expect to see the two teams crossover on the big screen — at least according to Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the films. Lets hear Hawkeye’s thoughts on a potential Avengers Guardians crossover.

I love wacky film theories. It doesn’t matter to me that the filmmakers most likely didn’t intend these interpretations, but I find it interesting the connections some people make within the movies they enjoy. It could be as ridiculous as a one line cue which leads some people to believe that Chris Pratt’s character in Jurassic World could be the young boy from Jurassic Park, how all Pixar movies exist within the same universe, that Stan Lee Is Playing the Same Character in All His Marvel Cameos, or even us trying to predict the future with a theory on How The Marvel Cinematic Story Might Connect Through Phase 3. Or it could be a much more well reasoned theory, like an explanation of why Top Gun is a deeper movie than you think.
Over the weekend I received an email from a /Film reader named Andy from the UK. He has a theory that all of the Marvel Phase Two movies feature a huge easter egg that we’ve all been missing: the black hood of death. This theory falls on the more ridiculous end of the spectrum but I still find the observation fun. And at very least, this shows that Marvel is over-using the black hood “in disguise” cliche in phase two. Hit the jump to read Andy’s Marvel black hood of death theory.

Even though Avengers: Age of Ultron just hit theaters nearly two months ago, Marvel Studios has to keep its eye on the future, and that includes the two-part sequel Avengers: Infinity War. Production on the two-part release won’t begin until late next year at the earliest, but since we’ve heard from Chris Evans that the shoot will last a whopping nine months, it doesn’t hurt to get a head start.
And if a new casting call is to be believed, Marvel is already looking to assemble on-screen talent for Avengers: Infinity War, and with the casting call comes the rumor that a key Marvel villain other than the presumed bad guy Thanos (Josh Brolin) will be terrorizing the cinematic universe. Find out who the other Avengers: Infinity War villain might be after the jump. Read More »
