Marvel’s Kevin Feige says future Avengers movies will take place in space

Although Marvel is keeping its Phase Four plans tightly under wraps, we do know that the studio plans on delving further into the cosmic universe post-Avengers 4, with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn helping Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige to help shape this side of the McU.

Well, it seems this cosmic emphasis won’t just apply to the likes of the Guardians and Thor, as Feige has revealed at Brazil’s Comic-Con Experience that future Avengers movies will see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes venturing into outer space.

“If the Avengers survive, we will see more films with them in space,” said Feige (via Talkies Network). “I love and would like to see more films in space.”

It is expected that the McU will receive a major shake up after Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel, with characters such as Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel coming to the forefront.

Jeremy Renner teases his Hawkeye Avengers 4 costume as Gwyneth Paltrow shares spoilery behind the scenes video

Jeremy Renner has teased an image of what looks to be his Hawkeye/Ronin costume for Avengers 4 and Gwyneth Paltrow has had a spoiler-filled behind the scenes video deleted.

The question of just who is going to turn up in Avengers 4, or rather, who will survive Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, is one that is asked often. Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is a character that will be showing up however, and the actor has shared on Instagram a shot of himself in costume (prior spy photos have indicated that he’ll be getting a brand new suit as he moves over to his Ronin persona).

The shadowy photo was posted along with the caption: “Costume on point today … what do you think?”

Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in the McU, may have just given away a pretty big spoiler regarding her character in Avengers 4.

In an Instagram video,

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Rockets to Dominant Social Media Buzz

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Rockets to Dominant Social Media Buzz
Disney-Luscasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” dominated social media buzz last week in the wake of the Dec. 9 world premiere and announcing its dedication to the late Carrie Fisher, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.

“The Last Jedi,” which opens Dec. 15, generated 368,000 new conversations last week to bring its total to 4.75 million. Tracking has shown the tentpole’s opening weekend could be in the $200 million range at the domestic box office — which would be the fourth-largest of all time after “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Jurassic World” and “The Avengers.”

Directed by Rian Johnson, the movie picks up where 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” left off. It stars returning cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Andy Serkis. The new cast members include Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, and Benicio del Toro. It’s the final film role for Fisher, who died last

Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo Invite Bullying Victim to Avengers Premiere

Late last week, a video went viral featuring a Knoxville, Tennessee boy named Keaton Jones. The video shows Jones recounting his experience with bullying at school, which was posted by his mother to social media. At the end of the video, Jones heartbreakingly declares, "It'll probably get better one day." Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo are trying to make sure that day comes very soon, as they've invited him to the Avengers: Infinity War premiere next year.

Yes, Chris Evans, the man who plays Captain America on screen in the McU and Mark Ruffalo, the actor behind the Hulk and Bruce Banner, both took to social media to reach out to Keaton Jones. Evans was first, turning into a real-life hero as he reached out to Jones, offering some encouragement and, no doubt coolest of all, an invite for him and his mom to go to the Avengers: Infinity War premiere.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige compares Chris Evans’ Captain America to Christopher Reeve’s Superman

It’s fair to say that a few eyebrows were raised when Marvel first announced that the former Human Torch Chris Evans would be taking on the role of Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Evans has since won over any critics with his superb performances in the Captain America and Avengers films, and Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has been singing the actor’s praises in an interview with Vanity Fair, where he compared him to Christopher Reeve’s Man of Steel.

“Casting Captain America was super hard,” said Feige. “I started to think, ‘Are we not going to be able to find Captain America, and if we can’t, what are we going to do with Avengers? Is the whole thing going to fall apart?’ And, then, finally opening ourselves up to Chris Evans, who we had initially sort of just looked

Steppenwolf Actor Is Not Happy With Justice League’s Final Cut

Much is being made of Steppenwolf’s general ineptitude as a villain in Justice League. Due to all the heavy-lifting the film had to do with its six leads, the alien invader was left with little-to-no characterization beyond his aim to take over the world.

His motivations are quickly glossed over and he offered little more to the movie than a strong fighter. He mentions being exiled and how he’ll regain his place in his society, but it’s only once and is a mostly throwaway line. Without an easily-identified motivation, viewers didn’t really have a means of connecting with the character.

In the original cut, however, his backstory was fleshed out a bit more, giving him much clearer motivations for his actions. Why his role was reduced so much is a story for a different day, but it seems that audiences aren’t the only ones who feel frustrated by it,

Loki’s Allegiance In Avengers: Infinity War Has Been Revealed

At long last, Loki’s true allegiance in Avengers: Infinity War has finally been revealed. Speaking at Comic Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that the God of Mischief will indeed be one of Thanos’ allies in the film, just as we’d all suspected.

As fans will know, the debate initially stemmed from the events of Thor: Ragnarok. In the recent threequel, Loki looked to have found his inner good guy as he stood by his brother throughout the fight against Hela. In a touching moment of brotherly bonding, he even remained by the new king of Asgard’s side once the threat had been dealt with.

However, there was one hint that Loki still had a hidden agenda throughout the movie. When he was in Odin’s vault to awaken Surtur, he was shown to notice the Tesseract, on display and unguarded.

Hugh Jackman to Return as Wolverine in Avengers 4?
The Disney and Fox merger deal is reportedly done. Several news outlets are claiming that the studios have come to terms and are waiting for the contracts to get drafted and signed. Now that this news is semi-official, Hugh Jackman's name has come up a lot and many are speculating that he will put on the Wolverine costume one more time to rub shoulders with Captain America in Avengers 4. This is only the tip of the iceberg as far as the ramifications that this deal will have on the McU alone, never mind the rest of details about what this means for the entertainment industry.

Hugh Jackman retired from the role of Wolverine after this year's critically acclaimed Logan, but the new Disney and Fox merger might coax him out of retirement one last time. Several news sources including Ain't it Cool News, claim that the deal is done

Marvel’s Kevin Feige explains how to build a cinematic universe

Over the past decade, Kevin Feige has led Marvel Studios to phenomenal success, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe becoming the highest-grossing movie franchise in history with over $13 billion in box office receipts. This success has prompted several other attempts at shared universes, although the likes of Warner’s DC Extended Universe and Universal Dark Universe have not yet managed to reach the same kind of critical and commercial heights.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, Feige was asked what advice he’d give to those looking to build their own universes, responding that:

“The only advice, and I’ve sort of said this already today, is don’t worry about the universe. Worry about the movie. We never set out to build a universe. We set out to make a great Iron Man movie, a Hulk movie, a Thor movie and then be able to do what, at the time,

Marvel’s Kevin Feige Has Some Advice For The DC Extended Universe

As we head toward Avengers: Infinity War, which – as demonstrated by the trailer – is a giant culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe up to that point, the chief architect of the juggernaut franchise is understandably getting a lot of attention. While the McU is the product of the talents and skill-sets of thousands of dedicated craftspeople, the achievements of Kevin Feige in overseeing the film series, and steering it to over $13 billion in global box office receipts, cannot be ignored. For that reason, Vanity Fair recently conducted an in-depth interview with him.

Evidently, the interview was done well into the theatrical run of Justice League, at a point where the financial disappointment was becoming very clear. Unsurprisingly, then, Vanity Fair asked Feige – without specifics – if he had any advice for others who are perhaps “struggling to emulate” the success of the McU:

“The only advice, and I’ve sort of said this already today,

Justice League Crew Member Confirms There’s Enough Material For A Zack Snyder Cut

Despite the mixed reaction to his efforts on Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, there’s been a fierce outcry from fans calling for Warner Bros. to release a Zack Snyder-helmed Director’s Cut of Justice League.

By now, you’re probably familiar with the behind-the-scenes upheaval that led to Snyder being replaced on the movie with Joss Whedon. Though the studio were confident that The Avengers helmer would be able to sprinkle some of his Marvel magic onto the film, the mixed critical reception and underwhelming box office have proven otherwise. In the wake of that, the best way of appeasing the fans might be to release an extended cut based of Snyder’s original vision for the movie, or at least one that featured more of his footage.

While we await any official word on the possibility of that happening, another crew member

McU Architect Kevin Feige Reportedly Keen To Cross-Pollinate Fox/Marvel Characters

News of the potential Disney/Fox deal has reached Marvel Towers, and Kevin Feige is reportedly keen to cross-pollinate “the rich swarm” of Fox characters with his existing Marvel heroes.

Of course, Feige was likely well aware of Disney’s ongoing pursuit of 21st Century Fox and its entertainment assets long before the news became official, but a new report from Deadline now claims that the McU architect is “eager to get his hands on the X-Men universe.” Hardly surprising, really, considering the sheer amount of success (and box office revenue!) that Feige and Co. enjoyed by incorporating Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Via Deadline:

He’s said to be eager to get his hands on the X-Men universe — Fox has Deadpool 2, New Mutants, Dark Phoenix, Gambit, X-Force and the James Franco-starrer Multiple Man all on the assembly line — and cross-pollinate the rich swarm of characters with the

Chris Evans Jests About What Could Happen If Disney Buys Fox

As much as the past fifteen years or so have proven to be an embarrassment of riches for geeks and casual moviegoers the world over, the fact remains that several dream meetings between superheroes have yet to occur on the big screen. And what’s doubly maddening is that many of those on fans’ wishlists are those involving Marvel characters.

You see, while Disney, Marvel’s parent company, lays claim to the cinematic rights to the wealth of their characters, there are numerous others – chief among them being those who reside under the X-Men and Fantastic Four umbrellas – that call Fox home. But, with Disney possibly purchasing Fox as soon as next week, team-ups that we’ve come to take for granted in the comic book realm may soon be made reality.

Funny enough, Chris Evans, who’s starred in Marvel movies for both studios, recently weighed in on the situation via his Twitter page.

We Think We Know How Avengers 4 Is Going To End

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos will finally step out of the shadows and take on the combined forces of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. After various teaser appearances and cameos dating all the way back to 2012’s The Avengers, there’s a lot of hype for the Mad Titan and he’s all set to be the biggest, baddest enemy the heroes of the Marvel universe have ever faced. We’re sure that the titular team will ultimately be able to take him down, but they’re certainly going to have a tough time doing so.

Not only will Thanos have the Black Order there to help him, but he’ll also be in possession of the incredibly powerful Infinity Gauntlet, which will be fully equipped by the time the film rolls around. It’ll essentially allow the uber villain to wreak havoc and do just about anything he wants, which

Did The Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Reveal Thanos’ Motivations?

Our first look at Avengers: Infinity War arrived a week ago, but it was so stuffed full of exciting, thrilling moments that fans are still unpacking it for new information about the much-anticipated Marvel movie event. On top of teases of Loki’s storyline, several deaths and a whole bunch of easter eggs, something else that may be hidden in the teaser is a hint at the motivations behind Thanos’ quest for ultimate power.

During the climactic moments of the trailer, the Mad Titan is seen pummeling his way through the Avengers in a fierce battle. “Fun isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe,” Josh Brolin’s voiceover intones. “But this… does put a smile on my face.”

Wait a second. What does he mean about “balancing the universe”? We can’t say for sure, but this could be a hint that the villain’s comic book motivations

Coco Goes for Coveted Three-Peat at the Box Office This Weekend

Coco Goes for Coveted Three-Peat at the Box Office This Weekend
Disney Pixar's Coco has had no trouble taking home the box office crown in its first two weekends in theaters, and thanks to minimal competition this weekend, it's on track to win for a third weekend win in a row. The only new movie opening in wide release at the box office is Broad Green Pictures' Just Getting Started, which doesn't have a theater count estimate or a Rotten Tomatoes score yet, but still isn't expected to give Coco much competition. While it certainly won't be pretty, we're predicting that Coco will pull off its third win in a row with $14.5 million.

Will Coco be able to pull off the coveted three-peat at the box office? This year hasn't been kind to repeat performers. Though some movies have managed to stay in the public interest a lot longer than others. Split was the first movie of the year to win

Avengers: Infinity War set photo may feature a major Hulk spoiler

In lieu of an Incredible Hulk solo movie, which due to rights issues with Universal is unfortunately off the table for the time being, Marvel Studios announced that the Green Goliath will be getting his own three-movie arc across Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4.

As we saw in Thor: Ragnarok, Banner had remained in his Hulk form for two years, as his alter-ego developed more intelligence and the ability to speak, and now thanks to a set photo from Atlanta Filming on Twitter, we may have an idea where this arc is set to take us next in Avengers: Infinity War

Well… to rock all of y'all's world a little more. Have fun figuring this out. (Btw Marvel said it was ok to put this out I have just been holding to torture everyone) pic.twitter.com/SzTmPYeDyI
