The 'Planet Hulk' movie rumors have been going strong since over a year ago, despite almost everyone involved in the Marvel universe - from Joss Whedon to Kevin Feige - categorically denying the existence of such a movie. Well, you can add another denial on the 'Planet Hulk' pile.
Marvel is big on planning ahead, so their latest news is no surprise. The studio has planted their flag on five release dates for films that haven't yet been announced, but with Comic-Con 2014 coming up next week, we suspect we'll be hearing more about these mysterious new dates.
This week, Marvel made a pretty major announcement on 'The View': Thor will no longer be a man. Thor will be a woman. Of course, the change is likely only temporary, but along with announcing that the Falcon will be replacing Steve Rogers as Captain America, the company is making some pretty diverse and exciting changes that set some interesting precedents -- precedents that could influence the way we perceive and accept these characters on screen, as well.
It turns out that the character of Namor is so wrapped up in red tape that it's impossible to see when or if he could make it to he big screen from anyone.
Up until this point, we haven't heard any real explanation from Marvel or Edgar Wright on why the two sides parted ways on the 'Ant-Man' movie. Besides a few tweets, Wright has stayed mum on specifics, but now Marvel president Kevin Feige opened up about the departure.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' hasn't even hit theaters yet, but we know it's got at least one major connection to 'The Avengers.' Aside from existing in the same cinematic playground, the intergalactic "Mad Titan" known as Thanos will be the future nemesis of The Avengers, in addition to being the evil puppet master of the villains in 'Guardians.' Does this mean Marvel will have both teams of superheroes crossover for one big team-up in a future movie?
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has dropped plenty of breadcrumbs as to who and what we might see when season 2 premieres this fall, but up until now companion series 'Agent Carter' has been kept a bit tighter under wraps. In advance of the Comic-Con 2014 panel next week, check out a brand new poster for either Marvel TV series, and a few hints of what's to come for the period piece's supporting cast!
Just when we thought that Marvel's Netflix 'Daredevil' addition of 'Falling Skies' vet Peter Shinkoda in a mysterious new role would be the most Marvel TV news this week, the Man Without Fear's forthcoming Netflix series adds some serious new blood. Fresh off the imminent end of HBO's 'True Blood,' fan-favorite Deborah Ann Woll will sink her teeth into the lead female role of Marvel mainstay Karen Page.
