After weeks of teasing the public with reports of false starts and stops, Disney and Fox have settled on a massive $52 billion deal in which all of 21st Century’s film rights are being sold to the House of Mouse. Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is about to get a whole lot more, well, fantastic.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been just five months since Marvel and Comixology first launched their digital series partnership with a revival of Iron Fists. Since then, a Thor/Hulk team-up and another Black Panther spinoff have joined the lineup—and a fourth series is on the way in the form of an Avengers throwback.
Yesterday, we asked you to become the personal designer for Thanos himself, using your divine photo-editing powers to give the Mad Titan a look that would be a little better received than his current Infinity War get up. And my god, did you all deliver.
Yesterday we got our first stellar look at Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. But while there’s a lot of cool things on display (Wakanda!), one area that’s caused some consternation is the Mad Titan’s new look. Not sure how you feel about Thanos’ “despot casual” gear? Work out your feelings through the magic of…
A decade of movies has brought us to the end of a long road in the form of Avengers: Infinity War, an epic undertaking we finally got our first, glorious look at today. The trailer paints a grim future for our heroes as Thanos makes his long-awaited move, but it’s also jam-packed with hints at the war to come.
Hours after news broke earlier this week that Marvel and Fox had been in talks for weeks about Marvel potentially buying back the rights to a number of properties, including the X-Men and Fantastic Four, follow-up stories stated that the deal had stopped. According to a new report, though, the deal’s not dead yet.
There’s never going to be a point in time when animated trailers for comic books aren’t weird, but that hasn’t deterred Marvel from dropping one to hype Avengers: No Surrender, the publisher’s next big event, slated to start next January.
CNBC is reporting that Disney is in talks to buy 21st Century Fox, an entertainment arm within the larger Fox company that is reportedly looking to focus its efforts more on news and sports. If the deal were to go through, it could have potentially huge ramifications for a number of Marvel characters.
It’s difficult to imagine what sort of response Marvel expected when it announced a partnership with Northrop Grumman, the fifth largest defense contractor in the world. But the publisher’s decision to axe the deal following a swift wave of backlash suggests that it didn’t anticipate people being turned off.
I like Jeph Loeb. Nice guy. Knows how to work up a crowd and you can tell that he truly loves working as the head of Marvel’s television arm and will defend it to the death. But when Loeb was recently pressed about some of Marvel TV’s... weaker elements, he balked and gave one of the most ridiculous answers possible.
At a recent event, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige got a tap on his shoulder. Behind him was Tessa Thompson and several other actresses who’ve appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they had a request: their own Avengers movie.
Marvel has ended its comics partnership with defense contractor Northrop Grumman, having previously cancelled Saturday’s New York Comic Con announcement event, after facing criticism for seemingly promoting war profiteering.
Today, Marvel Comics released Legacy #1, the banner book for its latest roster shakeup that lays the groundwork for what’s to come for the Marvel comics universe, on Earth, in the stars, and beyond. Here are all the teasers we saw in the book, and what they might mean for Marvel’s mightiest heroes.
We’re inundated with comic book movies and TV shows these days. But for a decade now, we’ve been in the age of the “practical” hero look. And that was fine in the beginning, when everyone was worried about getting regular people to take this genre seriously. But we are far past that point now, and there are some…
Filming for the third Avengers film wrapped in July, but not everyone involved got the same amount of access to the in-progress film. Some actors, like Sebastian Stan, didn’t even get to read the script.
As epic as the early footage of Avengers: Infinity War is, it doesn’t really tell you all that much about the film’s plot. Sure, we know that Thor ends up with the Guardians of the Galaxy and that Black Panther and the Winter Soldier are going to team up, but it remains to be seen just how all the pieces fit together.
We can pretty much assume that Avengers: Infinity War and the fourth Avengers film will kill off one or more superheroes. Obviously Joe Russo, who co-directs both with his brother Anthony, wouldn’t name names on the San Diego Comic-Con red carpet—but he sure did take an ominous tone when we asked him what to expect.
When we learned that Marvel’s Legacy event would kick off with the origin story of prehistoric Avengers who team up in the year 1,000,000 BC, we were kinda skeptical of the premise, but when we saw art for the team, the idea suddenly clicked. But there was still one Avenger we had concerns about.
As its name suggests, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is an awfully big place, including multiple planets and dimensions and a ton of characters. When Hulu’s Runaways series premieres this fall, it’ll be a part of the MCU too, but it won’t be pushing too hard for any major crossovers.
When Marvel’s Legacy event kicks off later this year, it won’t just be a way for the publisher to bring beloved, long-dead characters back from the grave, it’ll also be one of the first times we get a look at the Avengers’ truest, deepest origins that go back a million years.
