The climactic mid-air battle between Spider-Man and the Vulture aboard an Avengers cargo plane in Spider-Man: Homecoming was one of the highlights of an already excellent movie. Turns out it was entirely realized using motion capture and computer-generated characters. Did you actually think a plane with a cloaking…
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.
Even before Marvel made it the cornerstone of its new publishing initiative, not many of its comics have tackled the concept of “legacy” as much as The Mighty Thor. So it makes sense that its first issue under the new banner isn’t just about looking to the past, but carving a path for the future of all Thors.
As frustrating as the Black Panther’s absence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe up until Captain America: Civil War might have been, it makes plenty of sense when you remember that as a rule, the nation of Wakanda keeps to itself while the rest of the world gets caught up in global drama.
Thor: Ragnarok is the funniest Marvel movie to date. In fact, it may be the funniest superhero movie ever. From the first scene until the very last, it’s a non-stop cavalcade of jokes wrapped around an epic, sweeping space adventure. The whole thing will make you absolutely giddy.
Venom has lived many different lives since it was first introduced as Spidey’s new suit in The Amazing Spider-Man #252. Nowadays, the alien symbiote is coming to grips with its emotional demons with the help of one of the first true loves of its life. Eddie Brock and Venom are back together, doing a sort of…
Netflix and Marvel made the right decision a few weeks ago when the companies decided to cancel The Punisher panel at New York Comic Con in the wake of the October 1 shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead and 489 others wounded. The timing would have been beyond offensive, which raises the question: When can…
Looks like Mark Ruffalo isn’t the biggest Thor: Ragnarok leaker anymore. During a recent Australian television appearance, both Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth were forced to play referee after the TV host repeatedly blurted out a pretty important plot twist for the upcoming film.
Last week, Fox dropped the first trailer for its upcoming X-Men spinoff film The New Mutants, and it proved to be every bit the horror-inspired riff on the superhero genre that director Josh Boone promised it would be. Fascinating as the trailer is, its ties to Marvel’s comics might not be immediately clear.
Even though there have been brief moments of brightness scattered throughout The Gifted’s first few episodes, there’s been a distinct sense of hopelessness that feels central to the show. Despite its title, last night’s episode “eXodus” made it clear that the Mutant Underground’s running out of options for escape.
Galactus, Devourer of Worlds, hates all life as we know it—so of course it makes sense that he would hate Mondays too.
This morning brought us the Black Panther trailer of all our dreams. And while there weren’t a ton of new plot points revealed, there are a handful of important reveals that we were dying to examine closely. So we did!
The craziest things about the Black Panther hype is that we haven’t actually seen a proper trailer yet. Everything up until now has technically been from sizzle reels and teasers. The first official trailer, though? It’s going to blow your mind.
Everyone loves to rank Marvel movies. And down near the bottom on almost every single list are Thor and Thor: The Dark World. So how is it that we’re all so stoked about the third film in a trilogy that’s not even close to being as loved as others in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly round up of all the fabulous new toys just waiting to drain our wallets of their precious monetary fluids. This week, Hot Toys tackles The Last Jedi’s most important characters, plus a patriotically posable Captain America, and even stranger Stranger Things board games.
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.
We’ve known for a while that Fox’s upcoming New Mutants film was going to be more of a horror film than a “traditional” comic book movie like the one that launched the cinematic X-Men franchise. But actually seeing the movie’s first trailer makes it clear: this has the potential to be something very different.
When your world looks kinda weird and you wish that you weren’t there, just close your eyes and make believe that Marvel took advantage of its relationship with Disney to get the rights to the Muppet Babies theme song for its new children’s series featuring creepy baby versions of the Avengers.
Based solely on the performances of the actors who portray them, Jessica Jones is actually one of the Defenders’ better fighters, but according to Krysten Ritter herself, she needs to brush up on her stunt fighting skills a bit after an accident on set left her knocked out cold.
The passage of time is a strange thing for superhero comics. Heroes that have been active for decades are somehow still in their mid-30's, even as years pass and timely references to our own world are made. Trying to make sense of a timeline, like the Marvel movie one, can be futile especially when comics like …
