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.

That first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice made one thing very clear: Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero throwdown is not a Marvel movie. Not in character and especially not in tone. It was the latest punch thrown in the not-so-secret war between Marvel and DC, as Warner Bros. gears up to challenge Marvel Studios at the “shared universe” game. Whether intentional or not (and we’re betting on intentional), recent statements from MCU mastermind Kevin Feige feel like a direct jab at that Batman v Superman trailer and its dark, dreary tone.
Marvel’s press conferences for their upcoming films are always very exciting and very dramatic, with video montages featuring logos and release dates for the next phase of the MCU. Those videos typically leak online for people who weren’t able to attend the fancy announcement in person, and now a clever fan has created a pretty spot-on spoof of those videos, teasing Marvel’s hilarious plans for Phase Four.
Since Avengers: Age of Ultron is already well on its way to making $1 billion worldwide, chances are strong that you’ve already seen Marvel’s latest adventure and won’t need a spoiler warning about the apparent death of a main character. Still, just in case, here’s a spoiler warning, because Marvel President Kevin Feige has officially confirmed that the character in question is no longer among the living and won’t be coming back to life.
Captain America: Civil War is in production, and it has the official synopsis and cast list to prove it. The film, which will see Captain America come to blows with Iron Man, already feels like one of the boldest entries on the Marvel horizon. Can it make Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s infamous series work within confines of the MCU? Can it effectively juggle a cast list that seemingly grows bigger with each passing week? Whether you’re a hardcore fan nitpicking every decision or a casual observer trying to figure out what the hell is going on, don’t worry. We’ve got this. If you only know your Marvel heroes through the movies or never got around to reading 2007’s Civil War series, we’ve put together a primer on everything you need to know. SPOILERS for the comic (but not necessarily the movie!) lie ahead.
Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil left the future of Rosario Dawson’s Night Nurse character Claire Temple somewhat open-ended, but with Matt Murdock confirmed for a second season, Dawson is officially on board as well. Plus … what other Defenders series might the character pop up in?
Well, now this is something of a surprise atop last night’s renewal of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter. Marvel has apparently decided not to follow through with its Mockingbird-centric spinoff after all, despite weeks of development and negotiations.
The renewals, pickups and cancellations are flying fast and furious at ABC, but Marvel fans have nothing but good news ahead. Not only will Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. return for a Season 3 this fall, but fan-favorite Agent Carter will suit up for a second season in 2016!
The current motto at Marvel Studios must be “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” because the company behind the biggest franchise of the past decade has once again hired screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to pen one of their films. Actually, they’ve been technically hired to pen two films, since Avengers: Infinity War will be split into two halves and released in 2018 and 2019. Trivia: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely do not sleep..
You see the release date in the image there: May 6, 2016. Marvel Phase Three kicks off exactly one year from yesterday with the release of Captain America: Civil War. With the clock ticking, and the Avengers: Age of Ultron publicity tour finally winding down, it’s time to get to shooting Cap 3. Marvel announced today that production has officially begun on next summer’s massive sequel, and they also revealed four more big additions to the cast.
