Paul Bettany Elaborates On The Vision's Role In Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron

Guardians Of The Galaxy To Feature Motion-Capture Thanos, Tie Into Avengers 3
Woah! None of us were even talking about a third Avengers! Where are you coming from, James Gunn? It's not like we have maps labeling the Marvel films until 2028! It's ridiculous, planning ahead like that!
10 Lingering Questions The Marvel Cinematic Universe Needs To Answer
As a result, we have nine films worth of unanswered questions, unresolved cliffhangers and nagging mysteries that no one has been in a rush to conclude. Knowing Marvel, some of these topics could become major story ideas at a later date, while others could be completely forgotten forever.
Batman Vs. Superman Won't Back Down From Captain America 3
Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros., says, "It doesnít make a lot of sense for two huge superhero films to open on the same date but there is a lot of time between now and [May 6, 2016).

Why Marvel's MadLibs Style Of Filmmaking Is Bad For Storytelling
Why does it feel like this is all being decided on a whim? Whatever the case, it's treating movies like MadLibs. The absurdly long climax of The Winter Soldier honors Feige's wish to see helicarriers crashing, but it doesn't make much sense.
Monday Movie Memo: Why Captain America: The Winter Soldier Isn't Marvel's Best Film
The comment Iíve seen under so many of our Cap stories is that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the best Marvel movie to date, surpassing The Avengers. Which is a legit opinionÖ but not one that I share.
Marvel Surveyed Captain America 2 Viewers This Weekend, This Is What They Asked
With friendly smiles they offered me a 2-page survey and a tiny pencil, the kind you get at miniature golf courses. But what did they want to know?
What's Going On In The Captain America: The Winter Soldier End Credits?
Ever since Samuel L. Jacksonís Nick Fury stepped out of the shadows to tell Robert Downey Jr.ís Tony Stark about The Avengers Initiative, fans of Marvel Studios films have come to expect great post-credits sequences. In the last six years weíve seen some pretty fantastic ones, from the reveal of Thanos to the discovery of Mjolnir in New Mexico, but the tags in Captain America: The Winter Soldier are really two of the best weíve seen yet.
10 Unused Marvel Villains We're Dying To See On Screen
In the past year alone, the big screen has seen the likes of Coldblood, the Collector and Malekith The Accursed, and this Friday's Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens with the early menace of Batroc The Leaper. These are some serious deep cut characters, ones that not even nerds could spot in a lineup.
Monday Movie Memo: 3 Captain America Comics Marvel Needs To Adapt Next
Give the Monday Movie Memo a spin, and dig into potential Captain America plotlines that Marvel could (and should) explore with this fascinating character.

Which comics do YOU want to see converted to the big screen?
Robert Downey Jr. Suggests Marvel Will Seek Younger Replacements In Recasting Parts
Itís kind of surprising, and maybe a little dispiriting, to see one of the top moneymakers in Hollywood essentially refer to himself as a product that can be switched out so easily. But thatís how the Marvel machine works, as Edward Norton and Terrence Howard would happily tell you.
House Of Cards' Corey Stoll Joins Ant-Man
He joins a loaded cast that includes Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd, with Patrick Wilson, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Pena in talks to jump into the onscreen Marvel universe. Aside from Rudd, Douglas and probably Lilly, we donít even know who is playing what.
What Is Fox's 2018 Mystery Marvel Project?
The X-Men series holds infinite mutant possibilities for a number of strong characters. And while The Fantastic Four are just re-starting their mythos, the core group have several satellite affiliations that could make the transition from the page to the silver screen.
Scarlett Johansson Once Again Campaigns For A Black Widow Movie
Itís not just about quota-filling with the Black Widow, who would be only the second female character to front a Marvel-produced film since Elektra. No, it would be about the strength of the character herself, who celebrates her fiftieth birthday next month (and still looks great!).
