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.
In the fifth issue of Marvel’s Civil War II, the Avengers, Inhumans, and more were at war with one another over whether they have the right to apprehend villains for crimes that they’ve yet to commit. But their battle stops when everyone is suddenly struck with a vision of Miles Morales, Ultimate Spider-Man, killing…
Sure, we didn’t get to see the Avengers: Infinity War footage that wowed Hall H in San Diego this weekend—but we do get a tiny glimpse at the movie in the form of this truly spectacular three-part poster Marvel had at the convention, giving us our first look at Earth’s mightiest heroes, the sinister threat they’ll…
Over a dozen Marvel heroes are teaming up to battle the forces of evil. There’s Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther, as well as Iron Fist, Wasp, Hulk, the Guardians of the Galaxy and many others. However, this isn’t unfolding on a movie screen, it’s happening for real in a massive arena. This is Marvel Universe Live: Age of…
With everything from Avengers: Infinity War and The Last Jedi footage to news about massive Disney theme park expansions, last weekend’s D23 Expo basically had it all. But there so many trailers, announcements, and reveals, it was hard to keep up with all the House of Mouse’s latest developments. Lucky for you, we’ve…
It’s been a crazy weekend of news out of Anaheim, California as Disney rolled into town for D23, giving us updates on everything from theme parks, to animated movies, to a galaxy far, far away. But the craziest of all was the sheer amount of bodies the company put on stage to hype up Avengers: Infinity War.
Soon after showing an incredible Avengers: Infinity War clip, Marvel unveiled who was lurking under those black sheets next to Thanos at their booth on the floor at the D23 Expo: it’s the Black Order. But first, as an added bonus, the Infinity Gauntlet itself also made an appearance.
At D23 Expo, going on right now, Marvel unveiled a life-size statue of Thanos as he’ll appear in Avengers: Infinity War. And unlike previous glimpses of the Mad Titan that we’ve seen, this Thanos came dressed to kill.
Update: Jeremy Renner actually broke his arms while filming a stunt for New Line comedy Tag. During the chat where he revealed the injuries, he was also discussing filming Avengers: Infinity War, leading to the confusion that the injuries stemmed from his Hawkeye roll. Here is the original article.
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.
