In recent months, we’ve seen reports about actors getting into talks with Marvel only to balk at the idea of signing long multi-picture deals – the performers fearing that locking themselves to a role might prevent them from pursuing other creative endeavors.

Emily Blunt For Frozen 2? Here's What She Said
Frozen 2, at the moment, isn’t a guarantee – even though it feels like a no-brainer to us. After hearing Emily Blunt sing in Into The Woods, hiring her for a part in Frozen 2 feels like a no-brainer, as well.

James Spader's Mo-Cap Outfit In Avengers 2 Actually Gave Him A Distance From Humanity
In case you didn’t already know, Joss Whedon and the folks at Marvel Studios didn’t make James Spader wear a robot costume on the set of the Avengers: Age of Ultron. Instead, his character, the titular robotic menace, will be brought to life with the magic of performance capture, which means that Spader spent most of his time filming in grey pajamas covered in little ping pong balls.

Why Marvel Doesn't Really Want To Give Hulk A Movie
While Marvel has delighted fans with the return of characters like Iron Man, Thor and Captain America in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a question that has been repeatedly brought up by fans is, “Where’s Hulk?” The green monster became a fan favorite after Joss Whedon’s The Avengers in 2012, and yet the film studio decided that he would be the only one of the four core team members without a solo movie sequel.

The Character Joss Whedon Always Wanted In The Avengers Franchise
Joss Whedon did something truly incredible at the helm of the first Avengers movie.

Why Josh Brolin Is Terrified Of Shooting His Thanos Scenes
As Thanos, Josh Brolin is playing one of the scariest, most intimidating figures in the Marvel Universe. Even more than the fact that he is humungous physically and possesses incredible influence throughout the galaxy, the Mad Titan also eventually possess powers that give him the ability of a god. He inspires quite a good deal of fear wherever he goes – and weirdly enough that even extends to Josh Brolin.

While the features do have primates that quickly evolve and learn to talk thanks to a rather miraculous serum, everything else about the movies very much reflect our own world.
