The 2016 Rio Olympics may be over, but luckily we still have Spider-Man: Homecoming. Damn that boy can flip.
If there’s one thing you need to know about Luke Cage, it’s that he’s sick of buying new clothes.
Unless you’ve been on a movie set before, it’s hard to describe just how tedious and monotonous making one can be. So it’s no surprise when you see something like this Captain America: Civil War gag reel, which features most of the cast cursing, laughing, and generally just screwing everything up. It’s the only human…
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…
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Steve Rogers is the only Captain America—but that’s not the case in the comics, where many people have come to wield the shield. This fun little deleted scene from Civil War reveals that the movie was going to make sly reference to a few of those non-Steve Captains.
We’re a few weeks away from meeting the newest Marvel movie hero, Doctor Strange, and it seems the character got a last minute assist. The Hollywood Reporter says Dan Harmon, the co-creator of Rick and Morty, was called in to write some additional scenes after principal photography was finished.
Summer is nearly at it end, and as publishers put away its big events and crazy twists for the latter part of the year, getting ready to replace them with... well, more big events and crazy twists!

You know what’s fun? Football. You know what else is fun? Comic books. You know what’s not fun? These Marvel covers for the first week of college football.
And perhaps more importantly, Groot is adorable. I mean seriously, you might be distracted by the giant tentacle monster space battle going on at first, but look at that little face in the bottom left. Oh my god.
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.
Okay, kids, follow me on a journey. A journey which starts with a single tweet about Thor: Ragnarok, goes on to get some verification by a retweet, and then gets context from yet another tweet. Eventually, everything leads to Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum in New York.
In a few months, Tony Stark will no longer be the Iron Avenger. The 15-year-old tech wiz Riri Williams is taking his place as the star of Invincible Iron Man, but she’s not keeping the name. Probably because a teenage girl walking around as “Iron Man” is a little weird.
The filmmakers behind 2018's Avengers: Infinity War probably aren’t ready to talk too much about its secrets but Vin Diesel doesn’t give a fuck. On Facebook Live, the voice of Groot revealed that, yes, he and the Guardians of the Galaxy will be in the next Avengers film.

Or, case in point, this astromech…
Lunella Lafayette. Reed Richards. Peter Parker. Tony Stark. Amadeus Cho. Hank Pym. Some of Marvel Comics’ biggest names are scientists and engineers as well as superpowered heroes.
