Chris Evans is preparing to head into production Captain America: Civil War this year, but since Marvel has all their films mapped out through Phase 3, he’s also got to start thinking ahead to what’s next — namely, Avengers: Infinity War. That film is going to tie the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe together in truly epic fashion, so epic that they needed to divide the film into two parts, which will apparently shoot back to back.
The Flash will undoubtedly pull out all the stops heading into the final four episodes of Season 1, but by Grodd, a giant gorilla has stolen the Reverse Flash’s thunder. Behold the majesty of “Grodd Lives” in stunning new photos, and preview the rest of the season with another Rogue-tastic trailer!
The superheroes at the center of Avengers: Age of Ultron resonate so strongly with so many people because they’re so deeply entrenched in popular culture. Captain America, Iron Man and the Hulk were around for years before Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo were even born. These aren’t just characters – they’re icons. And while serious comic book nerds know how much Earth’s mightiest heroes have changed with the times, taking a look back at what the likes of Black Widow and Hawkeye and the Vision used to look like is both entertaining and (dare we say it?) educational.
One of the main reasons so many people have taken to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the interconnectedness of it all. At the same time, the attention to continuity and building a new superhero canon has wreaked no small amount of havoc on the creative end, where producers and writers and directors have all butted heads in various ways. The latest bit of weirdness comes via the increasingly honest Joss Whedon, who hasn’t been shy about his friction with Marvel Studios while he’s been promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron. According to Whedon, Marvel Studios wasn't very happy with the decision to make a TV show starring a character (Agent Coulson) they had just killed off in the movies.

Current Superman and Man of Steel star Henry Cavill was officially cast in the role in January of 2011. But, seven years earlier Cavill was also cast as Kal-El in a different Superman project. That film, which was written by J.J. Abrams and would've been directed by McG, was eventually canceled and Cavill never shot a frame of Superman. Until many years later when he was called back for a new Superman reboot and given the job. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which follows the last son of Krypton in Man of Steel!
At some point, we’re not sure when, Sesame Street stopped being a low-key educational children’s program and started being an educational children’s program that finds time to create internet-friendly parodies of whatever pop culture event is huge in a given week. So yeah, of course the show has made an Avengers-themed sketch and of course it’s called The Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon and of course it recasts Cookie Monster as the Hulk.
Beyond the recent Batman vs. Superman trailer, we still don't know a lot about the upcoming superhero rumble. Particularly, why are Superman and Batman even fighting each other? It might seem weird to seek superhero movie guidance from an astrophysicist, but when that astrophysicist is Neil deGrasse Tyson, whose voice you heard in the aforementioned trailer, you take notice. Especially when he starts describing the Batman vs. Superman plot and the main crux of the beef between these two superheroes.
When his casting was first announced, Marvel tried keeping the identity of Daniel Bruhl's character in Captain America: Civil War secret. But in an interview this weekend, Bruhl casually confirmed that he’s playing the villainous Baron Zemo in the upcoming superhero sequel.
