The upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers 4 will close out Marvel's Phase 3 lineup, with the final Avengers movie said to be the culmination of all the Marvel movies up until this date, with Marvel Phase 4 going in another direction. With Phase 3 coming to an end in just a few years, one dedicated Marvel fan took it upon himself to create an extensive timeline that showcases the exact dates of everything that has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far, spanning from 1906 all the way to 2018, using the Marvel Cinematic Universe wikia page as a guide. If that wasn't enough, this fan also created a world map that highlights every location used in the Marvel movies.

Expiation looms in first trailer for ‘The Mist’ TV series

11 April 2017 11:29 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Directed by Frank Darabont, and starring Thomas Jane and William SadlerThe Mist is one of our favourite cult classic films. Based on a novella by Stephen King, the film told the story of a sleepy Maine town that was overtaken by a mysterious mist. A small group of survivors barricade themselves within the walls of a supermarket, as they battled not only the weird creatures hiding inside the mist, but also each other. It’s a fantastic film that holds up to multiple viewings and is elevated by what is one of the darkest endings ever committed to film.

These days nothing can be left alone however, and it was announced last year that a TV series of The Mist was in the works. Now a trailer has landed and it appears that the series will expand out into the world outside that supermarket. Watch the trailer for yourself now:

Marvel TV/movies crossover "wouldn't work", says Anthony Mackie

21 March 2017 12:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Mar 21, 2017

Fancy seeing Falcon and Daredevil hanging out? Don't hold your breath, Anthony Mackie suggests...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a big place, and it's getting bigger all the time. You've got the solo movies that started with Iron Man, the cinematic team-ups that began with The Avengers, the TV shows that started with Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Netflix series that kicked off with Daredevil.  

Fans have long been hoping that these worlds could properly collide, with a crossover between the big screen Avengers, the small screen Defenders (Charlie Cox's Daredevil, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Mike Colter's Luke Cage and Finn Jones' Iron Fist), and perhaps even some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, being a popular dream.

Today, though, Anthony Mackie - who made his McU debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as Sam Wilson/Falcon - has told the »

10 January 2017 1:26 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The fight for Lgbtq rights is a topic that inspires a great deal of passion, so it was more than understandable that “When We Rise” creator Dustin Lance Black got emotional on Tuesday morning when discussing the current-day impact upon his upcoming miniseries.

“I would give anything in the world for [the show] to be less topical,” he told journalists at ABC’s portion of Television Critics Association press tour. “But I’m not entirely surprised, because as a student of history I know that history is not a straight line. History is a pendulum.”
