BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Looking at both the direct effects of today’s announcements, as well as considering some other choices that the studio could have made, we’ve collected a list of five different groups of Marvel fans who were probably left a bit bummed by the developments. Read on to find out who.
In the script and during production of Avengers 2 there were machinations in the works that almost saw Captain Marvel introduced as one of the new members of the team - but those plans were scrapped. This development disappointed some fans, but one person who isn’t upset is Meg LeFauve.
At Marvel Studios, the small screen stories have functioned as preambles and consequences for the big screen stories (in addition to borrowing characters), but we have not yet seen movies reflect what’s going on in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter or Daredevil.
Looking ahead to what’s coming between 2016 and 2019, we’ve picked the 10 likeliest contenders to die in Marvel’s Phase Three film slate. Obviously none of these have been confirmed yet, but going off comic book history and analyzing how events will go down in the near future.
When Spider-Man joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe earlier this year, it only managed to delay the in-development Sinister Six film. Many fans have wondered how this could be, as the script was written for Andrew Garfield's version of the wall-crawler, but now screenwriter Drew Goddard has explained the situation
Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man deal formed earlier this year meant that Sony had to abandon their earlier plans for the Wall-Crawler. Here’s how Marc Webb feels about not being able to finish his story with The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
Wesley Snipes hasn't had a chance to play the vampire-hunting Daywalker known as Blade for more than a decade now, but it seems the guy isn't quite ready to let go of the character.
Where the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Spider-Man is concerned, the key word in the conversation has been "young." Since Marvel Studios made a deal with Sony earlier this year, it has been consistently stressed that the new version of the superhero isn't going to be rushed into college, and will stay a kid for a little while.
Sadly, the big screen has run out of comic book-based adventures in 2015, but don’t fret: there’s still plenty of superhero action to be found on television. The arrival of the fall season means that all of our favorite DC and Marvel shows have returned – and this year we’re even getting to see a few new ones!
With continuity being key to the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one would think that once you're done playing a role, you're done in the MCU. Apparently, this isn't so, as Zachary Levi got the scoop from Kevin Feige himself that actors can play more than one Marvel character.
During the big Phase Three slate presentation, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said that the company has known where they were headed since Nick Fury introduced himself to Tony Stark at the end of Iron Man. But how far in advance are these films really mapped out?
There aren’t any plans to give Scarlet Witch a solo movie, and actress Elizabeth Olsen seems to be fine with not leading her own adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Unlike Marvel, DC Comics is keeping its movie and TV universes unconnected. While the concept of the “multiverse” could allow for crossovers, the company prefers to keep these worlds separate for a specific reason.
While Marvel maintains their recent actions in the comic books aren’t vindictive or meant to strike back at 20th Century Fox for keeping the X-Men and Fantastic Four film rights, their latest move doesn’t help their case much.
In the last year or so, we've heard about many actresses potentially vying for the role of Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is a list that includes names like Jessica Chastain, Bryce Dallas Howard, Katheryn Winnick, Charlize Theron, and more. We still don't know who Marvel Studios will ultimately cast in the highly sought-after part, but there may be a new frontrunner.
In future MCU movies, we will likely get to see Thanos retrieve all of the Infinity Stones – including the ones he’s lost – but the big question that hangs in the balance is when exactly that may happen.
Marvel fans are all brought together through their mutual love of the brand’s fantastic superheroes and adventures… but like every fanhood, not everyone is always on exactly the same page. While some enthusiasts love one aspect of the comics, movies or television shows, there’s usually an equally-sized group of others who couldn’t more wholeheartedly disagree with them.
Marvel Studios may not have another movie coming out until next May, but things are very busy behind the scenes right now.
Both Thor: Ragnarok and Captain Marvel are being considered for filming in a place the Marvel films haven’t visited yet: Australia.
It's been more than a full decade since we last saw the vampire-hunting daywalker known as Blade on the silver screen - but if new rumors are to be believed, then the character may soon be making a comeback. But rather than a movie following the incarnation fans are familiar with from the Wesley Snipes films, it appears that a new movie about the hero could actually center on his daughter.
