Last year, Marvel Comics announced the ‘Secret Wars’ event and yesterday, they explained exactly what this series is. We’ll get into the nitty-gritty in a moment, but it seems to involve the destruction and rebirth of the Marvel comic book universe as we know it. Yep, the Marvel superheroes are getting their own ‘Crisis’ and like that famous DC event, there’s probably an ulterior motive. You don’t break something unless you have big plans for how you want to fix it. If you’ll allow us to turn on our little speculation machine, we’ve got some ideas on what the new Marvel universe is going to look like.

As briefly mentioned in that post featuring the new ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ photo, Disney’s 2015 release slate is kind of insane. The studio is releasing 12 new films, averaging out to one new movie per month. If things go well at the box office (and they probably will), they might very well indeed be the highest-grossing studio next year, thanks to releases like ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ two new Pixar movies, and two new superhero films from Marvel Studios.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Gets Edited Together in Chronological Order

One of the reasons why we love Marvel’s Cinematic Universe so much is that all of the heroes and films operate in a shared universe, allowing for cameos and crossovers and storylines that affect and acknowledge other films and events. But Marvel’s superhero films haven’t exactly been presented in chronological order, so if you’re struggling to unravel the timeline for Marvel’s movies, don’t worry: someone already edited the first phase of films together in chronological order, and he’ll show you how to do it yourself.

With Marvel having two wildly popular superhero teams in their film roster, fans are excited for the possibility of a potential ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘Avengers’ crossover—which is why it was kind of disappointing when James Gunn basically shot that idea down a couple of weeks back. But now the director is speaking out to clarify his comments, and there seems to be some hope for a crossover after all … just maybe not in the way you’re thinking.

The Marvel and DC Superheroes Battle For Supremacy in a Slick New Fan Trailer

EDIT

It’s a debate that has literally raged on for decades. Who would win in a fight: the heroes of the Marvel comic book universe or the heroes of DC Comics? It’s mostly been a theoretical debate. Even a handful of special events over the years that saw both companies come together to pit their characters against one another have done little to solve things. This eternal, burning question is the inspiration behind a new fan-made trailer for a movie that will never, ever exist: ‘Marvel vs DC.’

Just yesterday, the reveal of a new Iron Man toy gave us out first glimpse of the character’s new armor in the upcoming ‘The Avengers 2.’ The trend of toys jumping the gun continues today: a German ad for the first wave of LEGO sets based on Joss Whedon’s superhero team-up sequel has made its way online and it may very well tease some setpieces and concepts that haven’t been present in any of the trailers thus far.

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Will Tie Into ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ Because of Course It Will

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ season 2 brought the unique benefit of standing outside any major Marvel cinematic upsets, as only ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ will arrive during the ABC drama’s run. And where ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ dramatically impacted the series, ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ has been confirmed to tie into the ‘Avengers’ sequel as well.

As successful as Marvel Studios has become, there’s still one thing we haven’t seen yet: a major movie crossover with other Marvel characters owned by different movie studios. Imagine Spider-Man and the X-Men fighting alongside the Avengers—it would be the biggest film ever. Unfortunately, as the rights to these characters all belong to different companies, we might not see such a crossover in the near future. However, in a new interview, Marvel comics creator and icon Stan Lee addresses the potential for a major multi-studio crossover, and it’s the most hopeful answer we’ve gotten yet.

About That Time Mark Ruffalo Hulked Out on a Child

"Are you-- are you the Hulk?" Prepare yourself for, quite possibly, the most adorable and charming story about mistaken superhero identity ever. Sure, Mark Ruffalo plays the Hulk as part of 'The Avengers,' but we all know that he's not actually the Hulk...right? Well, if you happen to be a pre-schooler, that line might be a little (understandably) blurred. This is a bit of an issue when non-Hulk Ruffalo participates in normal activities -- including being the parent of a pre-schooler.
