Avengers: Infinity War will show “why Thanos is the biggest and baddest villain in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe”

Having made his first appearance in the post-credits scene of The Avengers back in 2012, we’re now just a few short months away from seeing Thanos unleashing his wrath on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and speaking at Brazil’s Ccxp, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has promised that the first five minutes of Avengers: Infinity War will establish the Mad Titan as “the biggest and baddest villain” of the McU to date.

“You know, we’ve been teasing Thanos since the very first Avengers film,” said Feige. “Remember the end of Avengers, the very end of the movie he turns around in the chair and you realize something bad is coming. We’ve been teasing him for years and the trick is when you tease something for that long you have to deliver. So, within the first five minutes of Infinity War people will understand why Thanos is the biggest

Over the past few months, we’ve seen numerous stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe confirming their involvement with the Avengers: Infinity War follow-up, and now we’ve got two more names for Avengers 4 with both Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon) and Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne/Wasp) sharing images from the set…

While there’s nothing really exciting there, it’s interesting to note that Lilly is sporting her Ant-Man hairstyle, as opposed to the longer haircut she has in the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp. So, does this mean that Ant-Man and the Wasp will take place after the two Avengers movies, despite being released in between them? Or might we be seeing another flashback?

Glass Returns to Unbreakable Comic Shop for Final Scenes

Glass Returns to Unbreakable Comic Shop for Final Scenes
Last week, Glass director M. Night Shyamalan announced production had wrapped on this sequel, which combines the worlds of his 2000 hit thriller Unbreakable and this year's low-budget hit Split. While the director didn't elaborate much on the production wrap, a new report has surfaced which revealed that the director actually wrapped at a familiar location, the same comic book shop he used in Unbreakable. Bill Fink, the owner of Ontario St. Comics in the Port Richmond area of Philadelphia, confirmed that director M. Night Shyamalan returned to the comic book shop for the last day of filming. Here's what Bill Fink had to say in a new interview.

"Since we were part of the original movie, Unbreakable, when Samuel L. Jackson was here knocking comics off a rack from his wheelchair, I guess we were a natural choice since it's a combined sequel between Unbreakable and Split. I guess they

This Iconic Unbreakable Location Is Returning For Glass

M. Night Shyamalan‘s Glass, the much-anticipated sequel to both 2002’s Unbreakable and 2017’s Split, is currently filming in Philadelphia. Following on from Bruce Willis’ shock cameo as David Dunn in the aforementioned pic, Glass will feature the super-strong hero facing James McAvoy’s “The Horde,” with Samuel L. Jackson also returning as Dunn’s old nemesis Elijah “Mr. Glass” Price.

And with Price coming back for more, so is one key location from the original movie. Unbreakable fans will remember that a depressed Mr. Glass went into a comic book store at one point where he found an issue of the fictional Sentryman comic. This inspires him to get back to work in convincing David that he’s a hero.

While talking to Star News Philly, Bill Fink – who owns Ontario St. Comics, the store seen in the film – revealed that Glass will also make use of his shop.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige says future Avengers movies will take place in space

Although Marvel is keeping its Phase Four plans tightly under wraps, we do know that the studio plans on delving further into the cosmic universe post-Avengers 4, with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn helping Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige to help shape this side of the McU.

Well, it seems this cosmic emphasis won’t just apply to the likes of the Guardians and Thor, as Feige has revealed at Brazil’s Comic-Con Experience that future Avengers movies will see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes venturing into outer space.

“If the Avengers survive, we will see more films with them in space,” said Feige (via Talkies Network). “I love and would like to see more films in space.”

It is expected that the McU will receive a major shake up after Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel, with characters such as Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel coming to the forefront.

Jeremy Renner has teased an image of what looks to be his Hawkeye/Ronin costume for Avengers 4 and Gwyneth Paltrow has had a spoiler-filled behind the scenes video deleted.

The question of just who is going to turn up in Avengers 4, or rather, who will survive Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, is one that is asked often. Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is a character that will be showing up however, and the actor has shared on Instagram a shot of himself in costume (prior spy photos have indicated that he’ll be getting a brand new suit as he moves over to his Ronin persona).

The shadowy photo was posted along with the caption: “Costume on point today … what do you think?”

Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in the McU, may have just given away a pretty big spoiler regarding her character in Avengers 4.

Regina Hall to Co-Star in ‘Shaft’ Sequel With Samuel L. Jackson (Exclusive)
Regina Hall has joined the cast of New Line’s latest installment in the “Shaft” franchise opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Jessie T. Usher, sources tell Variety.

Tim Story is directing from a script by Kenya Barris and Alex Barnow. Barris and John Davis are producing. Marc Fischer and Ira Napoliello are exec producing.

Charlie Cox Plays Coy When Asked If McU Movie Characters Could Appear In Daredevil

Fans are forever wondering if there will be a crossover between the movie and TV halves of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Usually people imagine this taking the form of the Defenders hopping over to the big screen for an Avengers film, but sadly, this is something that’s been routinely ruled out by the cast and crew on both sides.

What if we’ve been looking at it from the wrong angle, though? What if the more likely way a crossover could happen is for one or more of the movie characters to jump over to the Netflix side of things? Though there’s been no indication of that happening yet, Daredevil star Charlie Cox seems to have hinted that it’s a possibility.

At Ace Comic-Con Long Island this weekend, the same event at which he made clear that he had not been approached to appear in Avengers 4, the

Marvel’s Kevin Feige compares Chris Evans’ Captain America to Christopher Reeve’s Superman

It’s fair to say that a few eyebrows were raised when Marvel first announced that the former Human Torch Chris Evans would be taking on the role of Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Evans has since won over any critics with his superb performances in the Captain America and Avengers films, and Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has been singing the actor’s praises in an interview with Vanity Fair, where he compared him to Christopher Reeve’s Man of Steel.

“Casting Captain America was super hard,” said Feige. “I started to think, ‘Are we not going to be able to find Captain America, and if we can’t, what are we going to do with Avengers? Is the whole thing going to fall apart?’ And, then, finally opening ourselves up to Chris Evans, who we had initially sort of just looked

Marvel’s Kevin Feige explains how to build a cinematic universe

Over the past decade, Kevin Feige has led Marvel Studios to phenomenal success, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe becoming the highest-grossing movie franchise in history with over $13 billion in box office receipts. This success has prompted several other attempts at shared universes, although the likes of Warner’s DC Extended Universe and Universal Dark Universe have not yet managed to reach the same kind of critical and commercial heights.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, Feige was asked what advice he’d give to those looking to build their own universes, responding that:

“The only advice, and I’ve sort of said this already today, is don’t worry about the universe. Worry about the movie. We never set out to build a universe. We set out to make a great Iron Man movie, a Hulk movie, a Thor movie and then be able to do what, at the time,
