With a raft of release dates confirmed through to 2019, albeit most of them without a named movie attached yet, Marvel Studios has no shortage of balls to juggle. It's moving its output up to three films a year from 2017 as well, and it's looking increasingly likely that one of the projects it's earmarking for release is the long-suggested Black Panther film.
Stan Lee, for one, says that he's happening. And you might just suspect that he has some insider access on such things.
Chatting at Fan Expo Canada late last week, Lee told the crowd that a Black Widow movie is likely, "because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies". He then confirmed that "they are already working on Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and the Black Panther, and there »
"Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn popped up at Dragon Con in Atlanta this weekend and confirmed that neither Ms. Marvel or any other Earth-based superhero will join the 'Guardians' in the upcoming sequel.
According to Collider, Gunn says he is steering clear of 'Earthlings', so that the main focus can be kept on Star-Lord in the next film. However, he does seem to think that Carol Danvers (Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel) will likely come to the big screen in other Marvel films and it "will be sooner rather than later". Meanwhile, he says the "Guardians" sequel offers him the opportunity to introduce plenty of other female characters.
Gunn also described the plan he had for Stan Lee's cameo, something that Disney rejected. The idea was Lee was to be one of the Collector's exhibits. Groot would look at him, only to receive a middle finger back in response from Lee. »

Cinema Blends Sean O'Connell posted an article this evening about Stan Lee letting slip that there is a Black Panther film as well as talking about an inevitable Black Widow film. He was quoted by ComicBookResources when he was asked about Widow and Cinema Blend posted his statement "The chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and the Black Panther, and there are others I am not allowed to talk about." While we can guess at how much of the planned films schedules and releases in predevelment are actually given to Stan, 91, to consult or work on in any form. You have to believe that he'd have some inside info. While Cinema Blend goes on to talk about how it's possible Ultron will be making a hop over to »
Stan Lee, the well known creator of many of the world’s greatest comic characters and the king of cameos, may have let it slip that Marvel Studios are definitely working on a film based on Black Panther. Comic Book Resources quoted Lee at the Fan Expo Canada saying, “We haven’t made a Black Widow movie but she’s been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward,” Lee said. “And the chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about”.
This is exciting news for multiple reasons. First there has been a little bit of outcry for more diversity in superhero films. Captain America: The Winter Solider introduced Falcon, »

Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy has already become the highest-grossing film of 2014 (domestically) just one month into its theatrical run. Not only that, James Gunn’s entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe made a name for itself as a critics’ favorite, giving the property a one-two punch of commercial and critical appeal. As discussed on the Screen Rant Underground podcast, its success opened many doors for Marvel as they continue their shared universe for years to come.

Collider have a lengthy recap of James and Sean Gunn's recent appearance at Dragon Con in Atlanta, and plenty of great new reveals about Guardians of the Galaxy were revealed in the process. Perhaps the best one is what the writer and director originally had planned for Stan Lee's cameo, something he describes as a battle he lost with Disney (something which surprised Gunn after he managed to get them to leave in the line referencing Jackson Pollock). The original plan was for Lee to be one of the Collector's exhibit (where he would have joined a Dark Elf from Thor: The Dark World, Cosmo, and Howard the Duck to name just a few), and the scene would have featured Groot looking at the legendary comic creation in shock only for him to get the middle finger from the man responsible for breathing life into the likes of »
Following the recent news that Guardians of the Galaxy has become the highest grossing movie of the year at the domestic box office, writer/director James Gunn and brother Sean Gunn (who played pre-motion capture Rocket on set and also appeared in the film as Kraglin), recently took part in a panel at Dragon Con in Atlanta. The brothers were quite candid in answering fans questions and revealed a number of pieces of information not yet explored, including discussing an original semi-r-rated cameo for Stan Lee that Disney vetoed, the inclusion of female characters in the Marvel universe, a bloody extension of Lloyd Kaufman's cameo that was excised, and the extent of Sean Gunn’s on-set performance of Rocket Raccoon that ended up on screen. James Gunn also talked about how he’s currently focusing on the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including potential Guardians spinoffs, the status of Thunderbolts, »

Stan Lee’s actual involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is extremely limited, despite being cited as an executive producer on all the films. However, he is the granddaddy of the Marvel-verse, and still knows a bit of what goes on behind the scenes.
Lee is often asked by fans and reporters about the goings-on at Marvel, and was recently approached at Fan Expo Canada about a Black Widow solo movie. The character has had a role in three Marvel films so far, and actress Scarlet Johansson headlined the successful Luc Besson film Lucy earlier this year; which drastically increased the demand for a Black Widow movie.
Lee weighed in on the possibility of one happening by saying:
“We haven’t made a Black Widow movie but she’s been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. And the chances are »

How much does Stan "The Man" Lee know about Marvel.s pending film slate? I mean, Stan Lee Is Marvel. Without him, there would be no Cinematic Universe, no characters on which to base these amazing Marvel films that audiences are flocking to (in record-setting fashion). But is the 91-year-old comic-book legend up to date on all of Marvel.s moving pieces? Because if he is, then he just confirmed a Black Panther movie. Stan Lee was speaking at the Fan Expo Canada on Friday (via Comic Book Resources), and let it slip that the Black Panther movie indeed was happening (instead of being this juicy rumor that no one at Marvel will confirm just yet). When addressing the question of whether or not Scarlett Johansson.s Black Widow character soon will get her own solo movie, Lee explained: The chances are she will have her own movie because eventually »
Stan Lee is a legend, but he has no role in what Marvel Studios does with their movies and you have to believe that his knowledge of what they have planned is limited. Of course, that doesn't mean heaing from him isn't still very interesting, and it should come as no surprise to learn that Lee was quizzed about the possibility of a movie for Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow during an appearance at Fan Expo Canada this past Friday. After her appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the box office success of Lucy, the demand for the character to get her own spin-off is at an all-time high, and "The Man" had this to say when asked for his thoughts on the matter. "We haven’t made a Black Widow movie but she’s been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. »
We all have touchstones in adolescent life that end up shaping who we become. I’m sure we all share a few of them. Maybe it’s Holden Caulfield. Maybe it’s Kurt Cobain. Maybe it’s The Smiths or Fight Club or Ghost World. All of those had an effect on me, but I’m not ashamed to say that the one who had the biggest effect was Seth Cohen, a character in the early 2000s Fox teen soap opera The O.C.
Seth Cohen was awesome. He was awkward and read Chuck Klosterman and drew superheroes and wore the coolest t-shirts. He brought comic books, twee indie rock and snarky internet knowingness to a show few would associate with geekiness, and blasted all those things into the mainstream. »

Kevin Smith has always been a comic book fan. His second and third movies were steeped in comics. To this day, he’ll occasionally write a comic and even maintains a podcast about Batman. And for a comic book fan/filmmaker, there’s really nothing better than getting Stan Lee to appear in your film. That happened for […]

Comic book fan and filmmaker Kevin Smith has set up a twenty-year reunion of Mallrats next year, well sort of. In next year’s Yoga Hosers, the legendary Stan Lee will make an appearance according to a recent tweeted image of Lee from Smith. Considering Smith writes comics, often references comics in most of his films, and has a TV show about the subject, you could say it makes a lot of sense to have Lee in your movie. Lee showed up as himself in Mallrats with some poignant words of »
