Rumor: Fox and Marvel Are Getting Friendly
While reviews for Captain America: Civil War were not quite as unanimous as past entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there was one thing we could all agree on: Sony Pictures was very, very smart to let Marvel take a crack at shaping the next series of Spider-Man movies.
'Agents of SHIELD' Gets an Honest Trailer For Name-Dropping
It’s reasonably fair to say that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. commands the least respect of the TV branch, always catering itself to the movies, while the Netflix series garner praise at every turn. The Avengers-adjacent drama has gotten significantly stronger in Seasons 2 and 3, but now answers for its Marvel-ous crimes in the latest Honest Trailer.
Joss Whedon Doesn't Regret Agents of SHIELD Reviving Coulson
A ways back, Avengers director and ex-Marvel mainstay Joss Whedon seemed to cast shade at ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. over Coulson’s resurrection, despite he himself directing the pilot, noting that movies would consider the character dead. Now, Whedon clarifies his comments, denying he regrets keeping Clark Gregg in his badass role, even as Marvel TV tends to get the movies’ “leftovers.”
Marvel Boss Calls TV-Movie Crossovers 'Inevitable'
Now that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 has kicked off the Inhuman invasion with a bang, and Jessica Jones busts up enough bars to cross Daredevil’s radar, Marvel TV has never stood taller against its cinematic brethren. Crossovers haven’t exactly been a two-way street however, even as Kevin Feige calls it “inevitable,” with a kingly big bad in mind for our new Spider-Man.
Watch a Marvel Phase One Retrospective
It may seem hard to believe, but Marvel has now completed two phases of films, ending Phase Two with Ant-Man before entering Phase Three next summer with Captain America: Civil War. The new MCU kicked off back in 2008 with Iron Man and ended with the first Avengers in 2012 — which already seems so, so long ago. As we prepare for Avengers: Age of Ultron to hit Blu-ray and DVD, one fan has put together this 10-minute retrospective looking back on the films of Phase One.
Chris Evans Will Stay With Marvel for as Long as They Like
It’s been kind of a big week for Marvel — we haven’t really covered it here, but the company had a bit of a shakeup, as Marvel Studios disengaged from Marvel Entertainment, with Kevin Feige taking the movie end of things over to Disney and gaining more control over the MCU. On the heels of that major news, Chris Evans has revealed that he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Clearly things are pretty good over at Marvel right now.
‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Gag Reel Shows That Even Superheroes Forget Their Lines
One of the most appealing aspects of the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the feeling that you’d really like to hang out with these characters. And if not the characters, you’d certainly settle for the actors and actresses playing them. They certainly seem like a fun bunch, and they never seem more fun than in the gag reels that accompany the home release of every film. In fact, don’t even worry about an Avengers: Infinity War movie or what-not. Just give two hours of these people goofing off on the set, please.
‘Ant-Man’ Clip: Revisit the Falcon Fight Scene
So why is Marvel releasing a clip from Ant-Man a month after its release? With the film preparing to hit theaters in China, the studio has put a new clip from the film online — chances are you’ve probably already seen it. In one of the highlights of the film, Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang suits up as Ant-Man and takes on Anthony Mackie’s Falcon. And now you can watch it all over again.
‘Avengers’ and ‘Guardians’ Crossover May Never Happen
With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part I hitting theaters within a year of one another, it seemed likely that we might see at least some of the Guardians gang appear alongside the Avengers team. According to Jeremy Renner, you shouldn't hold your breath for that crossover — in fact, it may never happen.
