Greetings, general public whom I serve! “Postal Apocalypse,” io9's mail column, has returned for a second week in a row, so I’ve got a pretty hot streak going on. I’ll try to keep it up! Meanwhile, you’ve got questions about Civil War II, Rogue One, The Winds of Winter, the next Indiana Jones movie, and more.…
Most Americans think of New Zealand as the place The Lord of the Rings was filmed, or the land with more sheep than people. This week, however, the country captured the American imagination, as an article in the New Yorker revealed that it was the hottest spot on the planet for rich Americans to buy property. The New…
On Sunday, explosives experts were dispatched to Folly Island, South Carolina, after a resident found what appeared to be at least a dozen Civil War cannonballs uncovered by Hurricane Matthew.
While certain things from the original comic book event that inspired Captain America: Civil War made it into the movie, one major piece didn’t: the comic’s infamous final twist in the battle between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. But according to the people behind the film, it was never even considered for the movie.
Civil War II has already torn the Marvel universe into two conflicting sides, and claimed the life of the Hulk himself. But its latest portent of doom promises to be its biggest, and most polarizing yet.
Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi has given us the tiniest shred of hope that Thor’s roommate, Darryl Jacobson, could make another appearance in the Marvel cinematic universe. That could mean another short video, but in a perfect Asgard we’d see Darryl move in as Thor’s permanent roomie.
It is a crying shame that we probably won’t see another entry in the Marvel vs. Capcom fighting game series for quite some time. But while we dream of that, at least this clever edit of footage from Captain America: Civil War can let us ponder what might have been.
As the leading hype-man of cinematic synthezoids in sweaters, I have to say that Captain America: Civil War has now retroactively become the worst film of 2016, simply for denying us the chance to see Vision to wear a three piece suit or a cardigan on the big screen.
The live-action battle between Iron Man and Captain America was pretty damn good. That might lead you to believe its Lego counterpart couldn’t quite live up to it, but as this shockingly good video shows, you’d be wrong.
Civil War had a lot of fun stuff in it, but its pitch-perfect introduction of the Black Panther is one of our absolute favorite parts. This new deleted scene featuring him and Black Widow having a loaded little chat is certainly no exception to the film’s rule that T’Challa basically has to be awesome in every scene…
The 2016 Rio Olympics may be over, but luckily we still have Spider-Man: Homecoming. Damn that boy can flip.
San Diego Comic-Con gave a small group of about 7,000 people a peek at what Thor was doing while everyone else was in-fighting in Captain America: Civil War. Well, now you can find out for yourself.
When the third Captain America film was in the early stages of development, Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel Studios were still embroiled in discussions for a new contract to see the actor return as Tony Stark. So with one-half of the “Civil War” conflict potentially unavailable, the Russo brothers had one old comic arc…
Zemo’s plan in Captain America: Civil War was full of so many twists, turns, and misdirects, it got your head spinning quicker than Spider-Man could swing his way around a Leipzig airport. But we’ve got a brand new deleted scene, making its debut here on io9, that shows a crucial early moment of that plan in action.
I’m pretty sure I could pass a high school history test about the Civil War armed with only the knowledge that was dropped on me from watching this highly entertaining 10-minute animation from John D. Ruddy. I’m actually halfway certain I would do better on that test after watching this YouTube video than I would have…
Remember when they’re on the snow planet, with the walking thingies?
Food is one of the pieces of common ground that people of all cultures share. Food is the one language we’re all forced to speak. And then there’s Steve1989 MREinfo. He just likes to eat really old military rations. It’s kind of his thing.
“Postal Apocalypse” is back, folks! Sorry for the delay. I could tell you an interesting lie about mutant raccoons scouring the post-apocalyptic landscape, but in all honesty I was just moving, and it took all my meager resources just to edit io9 and write Game of Thrones recaps that infuriated you. But I’m back now,…
Civil War has finally arrived, and the MCU will never be the same. But just how will the events as they stand at the end of the movie impact the wider Marvel movie-verse? Our own Evan Narcisse, Germain Lussier, and James Whitbrook sat down to discuss.
Captain America: Civil War isn’t a perfect movie, but it is vastly superior to the comics that inspired it. We’ve discussed the many problems with Marvel’s Civil War miniseries in the past, but they’re issues that Cap’s latest cinematic outing deftly avoided while still remaining recognizably Civil War—and here’s how.
