It seems a bit foolish for Marvel to heap easy cash into a giant dumpster and set it on fire by continually teasing a Black Widow solo movie we’ll never get. They have Scarlett Johansson, one of the most bankable actresses on the planet, playing one of the coolest, most interesting Avengers (and even more badass than the boys since she has zero superpowers), and yet, while we’re practically begging the studio to take our money for this, they’re just like, “Nah, we’re good.” We may never get that Black Widow movie, but one fan has put together a pretty sweet title sequence for one, which isn’t exactly satisfying our craving — it just makes us want a Black Widow movie even more.

According to Latino Review, after a long search, Butterfield has secured the role of Peter Parker for Sony’s newer, hipper, younger, version of Spider-Man. Word on the Interwebs (heh) claims this new Spider-Man will make his onscreen debut in next March’s Captain America: Civil War before spinning off into his own solo movie franchise that will be released by Sony but made in conjunction with Marvel and would be considered part of the official Marvel Cinematic Universe. That film (or, let’s be honest, franchise) would be separate from the animated Spider-Man movie that is also currently in development at Sony, under the direction of Lego Movie filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Captain America: Civil War has been filming on the streets of Atlanta this month with nothing too exciting to report so far from the star-studded cast. That’s about to change as reports have come in that yesterday’s scenes include a major funeral set at a downtown church. So, which Marvel character is about to bite the big one?
Those devils at CineFix are at it again, this time taking their retro-inspired gaming talents to the greatest Marvel movie ever made in the history of the universe, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. truly deserves a hand for its Season 2 finale “S.O.S.,” but Coulson’s work is far from finished with Season 3 fast approaching in the fall. To wit, producers have confirmed a major Secret Warriors nod from last night’s installment, which may already set up Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s season 3 tie-in to the MCU.
The new Ant-Man TV spot isn’t going to change the minds of those not already initiated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe cult, but it's going to remind everyone that Peyton Reed’s superhero heist movie looks like a lot more fun than its troubled production would suggest. Everything that makes Marvel Studios what it is is crammed into these 60 seconds: stylish action, attractive leading men and ladies, a big name actor classing up the joint, and a just-goofy-enough sense of humor.
After 22 episodes and one brief Ultron intermission, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. came to a handy close by tonight's handy two-hour season finale "S.O.S." We break down all the major Inhuman twists and turns, including who paid the ultimate price, who only lost a limb, and who may yet have powers of their own by our full review!
Marvel is definitely not messing around right now. In addition to hiring a pair of talented ladies to script their upcoming Captain Marvel solo film, the studio has their eye on one very awesome woman of color to take on one of their “diverse” upcoming movies: Selma director Ava DuVernay is reportedly being courted by Marvel for either Captain Marvel or Black Panther, and either film could benefit from having DuVernay behind the camera.
When you settle in to watch a movie like Avengers: Age of Ultron, you know you’re going to watch some CGI. You know those armies of killer robots only exist on a computer’s hard drive and you know that the Hulk left that bodybuilder with green body paint back in the ‘70s. And yet it would take an awfully jaded moviegoer to not admire these creations on a purely technical level. As the video above showcases, the computer generated effects in Marvel’s latest movie always look great ... but they especially look great when you start to see the CGI in the scenes that you didn’t think had any CGI.
Marvel fans the world over breathed a collective sigh of relief when ABC announced that Agent Carter would return for Season 2, but Peggy may yet have some big changes on the horizon. The ass-kicking period drama will again premiere sandwiched between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episodes, but will lift off for sunny Los Angeles and a Marvel-ous new threat.
