Marvel held a huge press conference in support of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but that wasn’t the only topic on the agenda — Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige debuted a new Ant-Man trailer, which will arrive online tomorrow (don’t worry), and Feige spoke a bit about how their tiny superhero fits into the larger MCU.

Just yesterday we learned from Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige that the new Spider-Man will still be Peter Parker, and the studio plans on keeping him in high school, where they feel there’s more fertile ground for storytelling. In addition, Feige has delivered some further details about the Marvel/Sony collaboration, revealing that we’re not getting yet another origin story and that they’ve already designed a new costume.
It’s still kind of mind-blowing that Sony managed to strike a deal with Marvel to collaborate on a new Spider-Man, effectively nixing any further plans to continue their most recent franchise. It goes without saying that it’s a good thing, but now that Marvel and Sony are starting from scratch with the web-slinging hero (again), it’s been speculated that the studios might go in a new direction with the character. As it turns out, they’re keeping things pretty traditional.
We’re just weeks away from the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which means Marvel is really ramping up their promotion for the upcoming super-sequel. In addition to new featurettes, TV spots, and the debut of Vision’s very own character poster (finally), the studio continues to release images from Joss Whedon’s epic new film. Today’s batch includes a couple of set photos along with new looks at super-siblings Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
Here’s why you should hate Mike Sampson, the editor-in-chief of ScreenCrush, even though he’s a good guy and a good boss: Last night, Mike was one of the first people on Earth-616 to see Avengers: Age of Ultron. He and a select group of journalists (which did not include me) saw Marvel’s much-anticipated sequel last night, ahead of this weekend’s big Avengers press junket. For this, he deserves our jealousy, or envy, and our deep, abiding hatred. Let it flow out of you. Yes, doesn’t that feel good?

If it weren’t clear already, we’ve officially entered the superhero TV arms race. Not content with Daredevil or its three followups into The Defenders, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has officially begun development of a new potential spinoff for ABC, but who might take the lead, and what does it mean for Agent Carter?
Before Captain America: The First Avenger hit theaters and helped kickstart the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel had much different ideas for Cap. Namely, a comedy. Before Iron Man became a hit, the original plan was for the Captain America movie to be funny, because they didn't know if audiences could take Cap seriously. The man they wanted to direct? Jon Favreau, the man who would eventually direct the first two Iron Man movies. These are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads back to WWII with Captain America: The First Avenger!
Marvel’s Daredevil will premiere all 13 episodes on Netflix this Friday, and while the streaming service hasn’t suffered any major gaffes the likes of House of Cards Season 3’s early debut, it seems Netflix may have accidentally pulled back the curtain on Daredevil’s iconic red suit before the premiere.
Marvel’s Daredevil will hit the streets of Netflix in only two days’ time, with AKA Jessica Jones already in production, but we can’t help wondering how Luke Cage and Iron Fist will all cross over into our future Defenders. Now, Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight teases the groundwork laid by Marvel’s first original Netflix series, as well as if Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones may make an appearance.
