Do you live near a Cinemark Theater? If so, carve out some time starting Friday to take a big screen trip back through the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Imagine if Marvel’s Thanos and DC’s Darkseid had a baby, and then that baby hooked up with another giant, evil space demon thing and had another baby. That baby, according to Rick and Morty director Bryan Newton, would be the show’s newest big bad, Worldender, who went toe to toe with the Vindicators last night.
The Battle of New York at the end of The Avengers is a crucial moment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s the moment the whole world changed. And when it happened, a little boy named Peter Parker was just a few miles away in Queens.
A church in Mexico is promoting some of its upcoming Easter celebrations with a bit of flair: putting Jesus Christ side-by-side with Iron Man and Captain America. Wait, does this make Jesus an honorary Avenger?
Companies like Hot Toys are known for their incredibly realistic action figures, but you can only pack so much detail into a toy that’s 12-inches tall. So a Chinese company called The Toys Asia has taken the concept of an action figure to a whole new level with a life-size, fully-animated version of Iron Man’s armor.
We all have a love/hate (mostly hate) relationship with the Infinity Stones, Marvel’s favorite magical McGuffin. So, will they make a cameo in the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie? Director James Gunn addressed it, plain and simple, on Facebook Saturday.
Everyone loves a good infographic. You see them constantly as you pop around the internet and yet, would you ever hang one on your wall? These you would. Three artists have combined to do a full gallery show of infographics based on your favorite pop culture properties and they are slick.
Over the long history of Marvel Comics, they’ve built some of their most memorable stories on “What If” scenarios. What if this character fought this character? What if this universe crossed over with that one etc. So, we posed our own “What If” to the president of Marvel Studios.
Nope. They’re not a fan at all. Especially the Hulk.
Given he’s appeared in almost as many films as Gene Hackman has, it was only a matter of time before Hot Toys’ talented artists would give us a figure based on one of Samuel L. Jackson’s characters. And Nick Fury from Captain America: The Winter Soldier is as good as any.
Jeremy Renner is a great actor, but either a new interview is his best performance yet or he’s really heard nothing about an eventual Avengers/Guardians of the Galaxy crossover. When asked about the proposition, the Hawkeye actor seemed incredibly sincere in his belief that it’s not happening.
Now that Ant-Man is out, Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is over. This slate of six movies began with Iron Man 3, and included some bold experiments (Guardians of the Galaxy) as well as huge upheavals. Now that it’s over, where do all our favorite characters stand? Let’s get you up to speed for Phase Three.
“To me, he’s like the human heart and soul of the Avengers,” comics author Matt Fraction told Seth Meyers of Hawkeye on a recent Late Night appearance. The Sex Criminals co-creator also shares some sex tips, to be followed at one’s own peril. Enjoy!
One of my favorite things about watching movies is seeing the film’s vision of the user interfaces on screens and computers. They’re almost always over the top (like they were in the first Avengers) but I love to imagine that we’ll see all those exploded graphics in our future and pretend that all that information…
Artist Daniel Kamarudin made these excellent illustrations that reimagines The Avengers characters as you know it. He took what we saw in the Marvel movies and turned them darker and added more of a fantasy flair to them. His depictions are great, I wouldn’t mind reading a story illustrated in this way.
Here’s another fun Sesame Street parody, this time they poke fun of The Avengers by pretending their a group of vegetable superheroes. I just love how Cookie Monster is The Hulk, I mean, it makes perfect sense.
Recreating the Chitauri Scepter, also known as Loki’s bad ass, brain controlling staff from The Avengers, in real life might be the most impressive build that Man At Arms has ever done. The detail is unbelievable: melting glass and glass casting to create the right infinity stone, perfectly cutting out the design of…
It's no secret that the whole 3D-thing didn't revolutionize the movie going experience—the second time around. But was it really because of expensive ticket prices, crappy 3D conversions, or more convenient home streaming options? Maybe. Or maybe it was because theater-goers didn't have their choice of Avengers-themed…
If you're excited for The Avengers: Age of Ultron to come out next month, congratulations and welcome to the human race. It's going to be crazy. But before that superhero spectacle begins, it's always fun to look back at the original movie. Here are some things you didn't know about The Avengers.
