Well this is kind of a bummer. It’s been reported for some time that Marvel was considering Selma director Ava DuVernay to helm their Black Panther film (other reports suggested they were also considering her for Captain Marvel). DuVernay herself recently added to the speculation with a tweet referencing the superhero, while Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that he had met with the director and would have an announcement by the end of July.

Superman Lives is one of those great projects that might have been, like Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Dune or Richard Stanley’s The Island of Dr. Moreau — like both of those films, Superman Lives now has its very own documentary examining the film that never was and the speculation surrounding it. A new clip from The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? features never before seen footage of Nicolas Cage’s costume test in which the actor wears a version of the Superman suit.

The CW’s epic Legends of Tomorrow hasn’t even gone before cameras yet, though the initial teaser presentation certainly gave us a taste of the out-there action. Now, a new piece of concept art puts Firestorm at the center of a huge battle, while new showrunner Phil Klemmer talks the spinoff’s complicated relationship with time travel.

Marvel has released the final trailer for Ant-Man following the reveal of the first in a planned series of viral videos connecting Scott Lang to the larger MCU.

The 1940s timeline of Marvel’s Agent Carter makes Peggy’s adventures seemingly difficult to connect to the present-day MCU, though the first season finale certainly suggested that Arnim Zola might take a larger role in Season 2, potentially exploring The Winter Soldier’s origins. Not so, according to showrunners, who tease that new recognizable Marvel baddies lie in store for Agent Carter Season 2.

Yesterday we got an awesome new look at Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, in one of the most faithful costumes for a comic book movie we’ve ever seen. Following that photo, 20th Century Fox has released two more of the Merc With the Mouth, and in one of them he’s not alone — he’s joined by his super-powered pal, Negasonic Teenage Warhead.

By all superficial appearances, Ant-Man pretty much looks like a standalone Marvel film — but the newest hero of the MCU will be making an appearance in Captain America: Civil War, and it’s all but certain that Marvel has plans for Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang further down the line in Phase 3. A new viral video begins establishing those connections with the reappearance of a minor Marvel character.

We haven’t seen a trailer for Deadpool yet, but with Comic-Con fast approaching, we expect that will change very soon. What we do have is a new image of Ryan Reynolds in costume as the “merc with a mouth” and even those who aren’t fond the character have to be impressed. This is the first time a movie superhero has literally looked essentially identical to his comic-book counterpart.
