BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Ever since Marvel Studios officially announced Captain Marvel as part of their upcoming Phase Three slate, fans have been wildly speculating about who the company would hire to play their first female superhero. Emily Blunt is a name that has been tossed around a bit, the actress coming off an awesome action-heavy performance in Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, but would it be a role that she would be interested in?
When Marvel Studios announced last month that they are in active development on a Captain Marvel movie, the geek community cheered. The character will be the first female superhero to get her very own solo movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it's an event that fans have been calling for for years.
While the Academy Award-nominated actress has been linked to the comic book movie company before, she has now gone on record saying that she has not had any conversations about starring as the big screen version of Carol Danvers.
Any actor can simply say they’d love to play a certain role, but Vikings star Katheryn Winnick is taking her interest in playing Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the next level.
There are weeks that I struggle to decide what the subject of Hero Blend should be. Do I check in to see what’s happening with the X-Men, or are the developments with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice more interesting? This week there was no struggle.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has big plans for the coming years. To keep it all straight, we've laid out the next few years worth of Marvel Studios films, which encompass the remainder of Phase 2 and the officially announced Phase 3 lineup.
In case if you missed it, Marvel spent the morning dropping bombs about everything its doing through 2020. Apparently we’re getting Civil War. We’re getting Black Panther. We’re getting more Guardians Of The Galaxy. It’s a pretty great time to be a comic book fan and to be Chadwick Boseman, who was cast as Black Panther this morning.
With their big press event done and over with, there has been a lot of dust kicked up by Kevin Feige and the Marvel Cinematic Universe - all of it going straight into DC and Warner Bros' face! Among all of the news that broke with today's announcements was the confirmation that not only are we getting the Captain Marvel film we've been hearing about forever, but that Carol Danvers is officially the Captain Marvel we're getting.
Marvel is offering up some major updates today, among which are the planned release dates for their hugely anticipated upcoming projects, specifically in Phase 3. Here's the list of movies they announced with release dates and some excellent title art...
If the rumors flying around about the future of Marvel Studios are true, there’s a possibility that we may not be seeing the likes of Captain America or Thor in The Avengers 3. Whether it's a contractual tactic, or there's some sort of thematic hook that this report is hanging on, this means two things: people are going to be upset, and there's going to be some room for some fresh faces.
One of the newest Marvel Cinematic Universe rumors is that Captain America, Thor and possibly Black Widow won’t appear in Avengers 3. Instead, they will be saved for another film down the line. If this proves to be true, Marvel needs to make sure that these secondary supeheroes to form the new Avengers team in the threequel.
While James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy certainly does have its connections to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, those connections are actually rather thin in the grander scheme of things. The Avengers are palling around on Earth, and Star-Lord and his gang are on the other side of galaxy on their own adventure.

Kevin Feige is continuing to tease new Marvel projects, and the two latest names to get dropped will delight fans and actors alike. Let the dream casting begin.
We've been hearing rumors regarding a possible role for Katee Sackhoff at Marvel Studios for months and months now. Ever since it became clear that the company is getting serious about a female superhero movie, fans of the Battlestar Galactica actress have been vocal about the idea of her getting a part (the most popular suggestion being a movie about Captain Marvel a.k.a. Ms. Marvel).
Diversity in comic books and comic book movies has been a flashpoint of a topic over the past couple of months, but has it been debated for longer than that in comic companies? A statement by Nicole Perlman – a writer on Guardians Of The Galaxy – seems to indicate that Marvel Studios has been toying with a female led film for quite some time now.
How many Marvel movies do you want? How about all the Marvel movies? Right now, the studio is stepping up to the plate and blasting them out like Barry Bonds with a handful of flax seed oil coupons. And who could blame Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige for getting a little bold and presumptuous?
Marvel Studios has announced its schedule up until July 31, 2015, which is the newly minted release date for Edgar Wright's Ant-Man, but it's plans beyond then remain a complete mystery. Disney has already etched out three weekends for Marvel properties in 2016 and 2017, but all of them remain mysteries.
While Marvel Studios films have had a number of strong female characters in their first seven films, what they have yet to do is give one of their female superheroes a real chance in the spotlight. The comic book giant has a remarkable stock of terrific, popular characters, but have yet to give any of them their own solo movie. That trend, however, may soon be coming to an end.
The Avengers sequel has to up the ante somehow, and knowing Joss Whedon's predilection toward strong female characters, it would make sense for him to bring in another female superhero, especially one who has actual superpowers. Ms. Marvel's origin story has her fused with alien DNA in an accident
Ryan Reynolds is setting himself up to be for superhero movies what Will Ferrell is for sports movies. Earlier this year, he turned in a pretty decent performance as Deadpool which will eventually turn into its own series
