Bathed in shadows and noir lighting, Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil set itself apart from the rest of the MCU with a distinct visual palette, one the Man Without Fear looks to continue in protecting Hell’s Kitchen for a second season. To that end, Daredevil Season 2 has hired House of Cards’ Emmy-nominated Director of Photography, further establishing Matt Murdock’s (ironically) visual world in 2016.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is arriving on Blu-ray and DVD this fall and while the full list of special features hasn’t been revealed, the first look at what will be included on the disc has been revealed. More importantly, we also know what the disc will not include: a director’s cut and a new One-Shot short film.
We were on hand at Comic-Con 2015 for an advance look at Marvel’s new Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, but don’t feel bad for missing out. Well, don’t feel good either, but feel a little bit of both with our first look at a new trailer promo for Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot and all the rest’s continued adventures.
Like Daredevil before it, Marvel’s Jessica Jones has been mostly under wraps over the course of production, leaving fans eager for a taste of Netflix’s next Defenders series. And while Marvel itself isn’t budging on a release date, original Jessica Jones creator Brian Michael Bendis is almost bursting with praise of the new series, including our new Luke Cage.
As Captain America: Civil War gets ready to wrap production and Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 prepare to begin production in a few months, there hasn’t been much news on the next Thor movie. But, star Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif) says that if you’re paying attention throughout Captain America: Civil War when it opens in theaters next year, you’ll get a very good idea what’s going to happen in Thor: Ragnarok.
We know quite a bit about who’s who in Captain America: Civil War, which might as well be titled Avengers 2.5 for all the MCU players it features. But there’s one cast member we know absolutely nothing about: Martin Freeman, whose fictional identity has remained top secret since his casting was announced a few months ago. In a new interview, Freeman himself lifts the veil of secrecy just a little to tell us what we can expect from his mystery character.
Evangeline Lilly’s future as Wasp in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is hardly a secret, though we knew for some time prior to the release of Ant-Man that we wouldn’t see her suit-up as the comic book hero in that film. But one of your first reactions after seeing Ant-Man was probably something like, “Great, so when will we see Lilly as Wasp, then?” Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has an answer. Kind of.
It’s funny, fitting, and sort of cruel that Ant-Man’s version of the Wasp is named Hope.
As Ant-Man opens in theaters, we’re once again reminded to keep our big superhero-loving butts in our seats throughout the duration of any comic-book movie’s closing credits. (For Ant-Man specifically, you’re going to want to stay all the way to the very end, for an extra post-credits scene.) It’s become a superhero movie staple to have a scene tacked on to the end of the film that either teases an upcoming sequel or spinoff, pays off an unresolved storyline, or just sprinkles on one last dash of humor. We’ve gone through all the superhero post-credits scenes that have ever made their way to the big screen to rank them.
It’s still a bit strange that we’re getting a third Spider-Man franchise already — the second reboot in three years, and the second reboot since Sam Raimi kicked off the franchise with 2002's Spider-Man. Following Marvel and Sony’s highly-anticipated deal to collaborate on the new reboot of the character, Raimi himself is weighing in with his thoughts on the deal and his faith in the future of Spidey.
