BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Back in February, Selma director Ava Duvernay was quoted in an interview explaining why she would be interested in making a superhero movie - and now it looks like she may actually get a chance. According to new reports, Marvel Studios is courting the filmmaker to consider helming one of their upcoming projects.
Thanks to a landmark deal that was officially announced back in February, Spider-Man will be making his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe - starting with an appearance in 2016's Captain America: Civil War. If it were up to writer/director Joss Whedon, however, the web-slinger's appearance in the MCU would have been a lot sooner.
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.
Carol Danvers was originally part of the sequel's script, but after development went on she was cut out. Now, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has spoken up about the subject and the decision to not include her in Age of Ultron.
Exciting as it was when it was announced earlier this year that Spider-Man would be coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the reveal also resulted in a schedule disruption for four of Marvel Studiosí upcoming projects. As it turns out, Spider-Manís inclusion to the MCU actually didnít really disrupt things all that much, and itís for a rather simple reason.
Earlier this week the rumor of Captain Marvel appearing in the Avengers: Age of Ultron post-credits sequence rose again. Now only days later, another report as come out over a possible appearance, but this time itís not looking good for the heroine.
One of the biggest questions Marvelites have regarding the Avengers cinematic universe is, who will be cast as Captain Marvel in the Phase 3 film? Well, the latest word on the street is that they already found her!
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.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 may not be hitting theaters until 2017, but that doesn't mean we can't prod for details now, right? Unfortunately for the inquiring mind who recently did exactly that, asking director James Gunn for confirmation on whether or not Captain Marvel would appear in the highly-anticipated GOTG sequel, we now have a definitive answer that we may not have wanted to hear.
Fans suggestions for Marvelís first female-led superhero film Captain Marvel have been pouring in since the film was announced late last year. One of the actresses they have pitched is Vikings star Katheryn Winnick.
By jumping the gun, perhaps in competition with DC, and by showing all of their Phase Three cards much sooner than they had to, I wonder if Marvel Studios created a planning and scheduling headache that easily could have been contained to the boardrooms of the massively successful studio?
Now that Spider-Man is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we can expect a lot of change in the world of comic book movies. The first big alteration that has come as a result, however, is in the release dates of future Marvel movies.
Late last year Marvel announced super heroine Carol Danvers would lead their first female-driven film, Captain Marvel, marking up the nineteenth installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There's still tons of time before its slated 2018 release but right now it looks very probable that Angelina Jolie may be the one sitting in the director's chair.
Itís looking like Joss Whedon wonít be directing the two-part Avengers: Infinity War after Age of Ultron. The question is, if not the Avengers movies, than what? Is the upcoming Captain Marvel on the docket?
Even though 2015 doesnít have as many comic book movies coming out, thereís still plenty of exciting news and revelations that will come out. Check out the superhero movie questions that we think will be answered over the next 12 months.
Emily Blunt emerged as the next big action star. She easily held her own alongside action movie mainstay Tom Cruise in the summer blockbuster Edge of Tomorrow -- and even surpassed him. In light of her success, some of her fans have been campaigning for her to follow this movie up with the title role in Marvelís upcoming Captain Marvel, but what does Blunt think about all this?
Divergent actress Shailene Woodley recently expressed interest in joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and as luck would have it, Marvel is looking at actresses to play Captain Marvel in 2018. The question is if Woodley is right for the part. Hereís our take.
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.
