If you think the Marvel Cinematic Universe is dominating your life now, just wait until 2016 when Steve Rogers and Tony Stark go head-to-head in ‘Captain America: Civil War.’ It’s a movie so big that it actually scared ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ away from its original release date. So when you read the latest comments on the film by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (who also wrote the first two ‘Captain America’ films), just try to imagine the amount of pressure on their shoulders. Lesser screenwriters would be crushed.

It may be difficult to believe, but we’re only four months away from the release of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ To better prepare you for what’s sure to be one seriously awesome superhero sequel, this new supercut takes you back through Marvel’s Phase Two films, all of which have been leading up to the next chapter of the Avengers saga. From ‘Iron Man 3’ to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ relive the most intense and action-packed moments from your favorite superhero franchises.
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.
It's easy to pick up on the influences in both 'Captain America' films, from the vintage pulp of 'The First Avenger' to the '70s spy thriller style of 'The Winter Soldier,' but this fan-made trailer takes it a step further, placing Cap in his very own '80-style action flick. The results are totally awesome, utilizing the familiar worn-in feel of an old VHS tape and a classic voiceover to deliver a trailer for 'Captain America: Winter Soldier.' We'd definitely watch this movie.
We've seen college course offerings focus on the 'Harry Potter' universe, comic books, and even one specifically for 'The Walking Dead,' but now it's Marvel's turn to educate younglings about the intricacies of their Cinematic Universe.
How well do you think you know Marvel's 'The Avengers'? Did you catch the earlier appearance of that shawarma joint before the team had a celebratory chow down? Did you know the movie was initially three hours and 10 minutes? Well, we cover that and more in ScreenCrush's latest edition of 'You Think You Know Movies?'
Much like the comic books on which they're based, the Marvel movies pride themselves on their ability to cross each other's characters over into different storylines, and the upcoming 'Ant-Man' will be no different. We've seen such instances as Captain America pop up briefly in 'Thor: The Dark World,' and Agent Coulson and Nick Fury show up in a handful of titles, so which Marvel movie characters from the 'Captain America' universe might show up in Peyton Reed's 'Ant-Man'?
Part of the fun of watching a Marvel movie is looking out for all those Easter eggs strewn throughout, and you can be sure 'Guardians of the Galaxy' has a handful, as well. But in case you missed any of them, from the first 'Iron Man' movie all the way up to 'Thor: The Dark World,' MTV compiled a handy video running down all of them, explaining their significance.
The Avengers were out in force last night during Marvel's eye-popping Comic-Con panel, and despite plenty of mirth and goodwill on the packed panel itself, the footage shown to the crowd hinted at a much darker story to come in Joss Whedon's 'Avengers 2.'
When the first photo was released of the cast of 'Star Wars: Episode VII,' there was a significant backlash at the lack of women in that photo. (The female side of the cast has grown since that photo was released.) For all the success that Marvel Studios has experienced since 2008's 'Iron Man,' what they haven't yet pulled off is a female-led standalone film. Now, a Captain Marvel (aka Ms. Marvel) movie is heavily rumored to be happening at some point, but until that happens, does Marvel President Kevin Feige think about the potential backlash if that doesn't happen soon?
