Ant-Man and the Wasp isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until next July, but with Marvel gearing up to start production this July, you’d think that everyone who’s returning from the first film would know about it by now. That’s not the case for both Michael Peña and Judy Greer, neither of whom seem to know if they’re coming back for the Ant-Man sequel. Your guess is as good as theirs.
At this point, you could probably use the MCU to delineate the passage of time. For instance, in just one more Marvel movie, it’ll be summertime, and we only have two more Marvel movies until Black Panther arrives. As we anxiously await T’Challa’s first solo film, new photos and video from the South Korea set have landed online, teasing a big chase sequence in which the hero rides atop a sports car. That series of words is definitely exciting.
Anyone who partook of Netflix’s Iron Fist could recognize the series’ issues extend beyond casting, though we still wonder how things might have gone with a more culturally appropriate Danny Rand. That concern in particular hasn’t made inroads with the Marvel character’s co-creator, who shares a harsh response over “cultural appropriation and crap like that, which just makes me furious.”
The latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer saved the biggest reveal for last when Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill finally met his father, Kurt Russell’s Ego. But that was just a taste of Russell’s character.
Marvel superheroes across the TV-movie spectrum may not join forces anytime soon, but that isn’t stopping a few team-ups behind the camera. Case in point. a notable Iron Fist star has Doctor Strange himself to thank for the gig, as Benedict Cumberbatch put in a good word.
It remains an open question whether the Marvel movie and TV universes will ever reconcile, but Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will add a new wrinkle with its April 4 return. Catch a glimmer of the “What If” Hydra universe with first photos and a new synopsis for the final Season 4 “pod.”
Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist may have neglected a colorful costume over its first thirteen episodes, though the final Defender series did manage to sneak in grainy footage of a previous Iron Fist in familiar garb. Now, a much closer look at that note-perfect costume has arrived, and … remind me why we couldn’t have Finn Jones wear this?
Even as Marvel’s Iron Fist finally completed the sequence of Netflix heroes that will bring us The Defenders team-up, certain fans will never give up hope that the four could join the larger collective of cinematic Avengers. Sadly, The Falcon is none-too-keen on such a crossover, as Anthony Mackie dismisses Marvel’s TV heroes as “different universes, different worlds.”
If you’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy, you know and love Baby Groot and his dancing antics in the closing credits. But did you know Groot’s moves were based on the dancing of director James Gunn? It’s true. And that’s just one of the galaxy-spanning facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
Plenty of familiar Iron Fist names were floated throughout the casting process, though several seemed to fall by the wayside as production got underway. Now, not only has a major Iron Fist character been confirmed for a stealthy Season 1 appearance, but said star is already eying a Season 2 return.
