BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
If you pride yourself on being able to spot each of the Easter Eggs in all the Marvel films, donít expect to see many of them in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
To this point, the relationship between Marvel Studios films and television series has largely been a one way street: characters and storylines from the movies have affected shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, though we have not yet seen those same shows influencing the stories on the big screen. But while this is the current status quo, we may soon see a shift.
Captain Marvel may not be a character in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it won't be too long before we get to see her on the big screen. Marvel Studios has announced that the character will be getting her very own solo movie in 2018, and they are in the midst of enlisting screenwriters to work on the script.
Captain America: Civil War is expected to be a rather special film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe - and not only because it will be absolutely jam-packed with superheroes. It turns out that the tech being used by the production is going to be unique, as it will be the first movie to film with the new IMAX/Arri 2D Camera.
If youíre a Marvel geek, thereís a very good chance that you recognize the image to the left. Thatís because itís a still from an Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer released back in January, and has been the subject of endless speculation for months now.
As we reported earlier this weekend, a brand new Ant-Man trailer will be hitting the web tomorrow Ė but today Marvel has delivered a nice little preview to help whet our appetites.
To this point, Paul Bettany has had a rather small overall role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though he has been a part of the massive franchise since its beginning back in 2008, his part has long been limited to delivering exposition as the voice of Iron Manís digital butler, Jarvis.
Since arriving on the Hollywood stage back in 2008, Marvel Studios has become known for creating two very different kinds of post-credits scenes. There are the more epic ones that tend to make big reveals and tease future movies; and then there are the ones that are made to be a bit more silly and just add to the fun charm of the Marvel brand.
Itíll still be weeks before members of the general public are able to consume it, but to everyoneís delight, the movie is apparently awesome, at least if you can rely on the word of the first batch of paid movie experts!
There are many out there who arenít too familiar with Daredevil comics, and will be going into viewings of the new series without knowing anything about the character Ė potentially getting a bit lost in the process. Itís for those folks that this new episode of Hero Blend is dedicated!
We've been hearing rumors for a while now that Marvel Studios would possibly have the superheroine Captain Marvel make her big screen debut in Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Sadly it seems that story is bogus - but the good news is that the blockbuster will have one secret female character that Marvel Studios isn't quite ready to tell us about yet.
The next few weeks are going to be rather huge for Marvel Studios, but evidently it's not enough. In addition to every other big thing that's been going on, now a big Avengers announcement has been scheduled for tomorrow morning.
Having seen the first five episodes of the brand new Marvel Studios series, and now being allowed to talk about it, Iíve decided to dedicate this weekís Hero Blend to a very special 100% spoiler free review of Daredevil.
Itís fun to watch Marvel heroes and villains duke it out on the big screen, but supporting characters are crucial to spicing up the narrative. Weíve gone ahead and taken a look at the best of these types of characters the Marvel Cinematic Universe has given us over the years.
Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron has one of the most impressive principal ensembles we've ever seen, but apparently we've spent months not actually knowing the full extent of the roster. This is because both Julie Delpy and Linda Cardellini have parts in the blockbuster, as has confirmed on a tip sheet for the feature's upcoming Los Angeles premiere.
With the MCU showing no signs of stopping right now, there are many superheroes that have yet to be introduced. Superheroes are the latest cinematic craze, which means that at some point Marvel is going to have to give us new players.
Andy Serkis has what could wind up becoming a incredibly important role in the MCU. Though his part was kept under wraps for months, it has been confirmed that he will be playing Ulysses Klaw in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and given character's the comic book history, that positions him to become a key villain in Marvel Studios' upcoming Black Panther film.
As is common for many major blockbusters, Ant-Man recently underwent reshoots, and as a result, fans will see a shift in protagonist Scott Lang that reportedly draws the character closer to how the original director Edgar Wright wrote him.
When Marvel Studios hired Joe and Anthony Russo to make Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it turned out to be a rather inspired choice. This success is obviously something that one would expect the studio to celebrate, and they've apparently been doing so in a big way.
Itís true that DC Comics will be beating Marvel Studios to the box office with their first female-led superhero blockbuster in the form of 2017ís Wonder Woman, but the folks at the House of Ideas truthfully arenít trailing too far behind.
