Marvelous DA7E: Luke Cage, Black Panther And Planet Hulk Made My Con

22 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

That was San Deigo Comic Con, my friends, Sdcc 2016 passed us by like a whirlwind last weekend and for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Hall H panel that whirlwind came with unprecedented security to make sure none of that sweet, sweet video leaked out. Warner Bros, with the DC Comics stuff, they put everything online right away, Marvel...not so much.

We did luck out into some video from the Marvel Netflix panel, which decided to go balls out at a convention where not much was expected of them. It seemed reasonable that Luke Cage would get to suck up the spotlight, because we’re mere months away from the debut of his Netflix series, but basically rolling out teasers for the rest of the Netflix Phase 1 was very impressive.

First, though, Cage. Damn, this series looks hot and executive producer Cheo Coker really seems to get how important this is. »

Meet The Ravagers From Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

25 July 2016 4:48 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

One thing Marvel likes to do with their Comic-Con panels is bring out the members of the McU in full costume to delight the crowd in Hall H. This year was no different, with Michael Rooker going full Yondu alongside the actors who make up his crew of Ravagers. While what happen in Hall H usually stays in Hall H, thankfully comedian Steve Agee, who appears in the sequel as Ravager Gef (pronounced Jeff), was able to snap some close photos of the newly mohawked Yondu, and his crew  made up of, from top left going in a circle, the wonderfully named Brahl, Oblo, Scrote, Narblik, Gef, Kraglin (Gunn’s brother Sean, also stand-in for Rocket in the original movie), Wretch, Half-Nut, and Taserface. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes our way May 5th 2017. »

Centre of the image is Taserface, played by Chris Sullivan, with Gunn posted on Facebook that: “It’s worth noting that four years ago when I was hired for the first Guardians film, I joked that I was going to make Taserface my villain. I suppose it’s no longer a joke.”

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Cast Interviews and Panel Video from Comic-Con

24 July 2016 2:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the opening moments of Marvel Studios' massive Hall H panel at Comic-Con, Kevin Feige was asked by moderator Chris Hardwick why the studio famously skipped the convention last year. The studio president and producer stated that, "We only want to come when we have a lot of stuff to show you," which set the tone for the panel that featured the first trailer for Doctor Strange, along with sneak peeks at Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and the confirmation of Brie Larson starring in Captain Marvel. One of the biggest highlights of the panel, however, was the colorful introduction of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars, along with the jaw-dropping footage they presented.

Unfortunately, Marvel didn't release the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage quite yet, but the studio has provided us with videos featuring highlights from the panel, along with video interviews with director James Gunn »

Kurt Russell's Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Ego Costume Revealed at Comic-Con

24 July 2016 12:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel Studios' massive Hall H panel featured plenty of jaw-dropping announcements, such as the confirmation of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel plus the surprise appearance of the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast. Perhaps the biggest surprise, though, came when the studio unveiled footage from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which revealed the sequels' most closely guarded secret, the identity of Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) father, Ego the Living Planet, played by Kurt Russell. While that footage hasn't been released online yet, Marvel put Ego's full costume on display at the convention center.

Marvel's Ryan Penagos, known on Twitter as Agent M, posted a new video featuring the unveiling of this costume on the Marvel Stage at Comic-Con for the convention's final day. He also posted a number of detailed photos giving fans a closer look at the costume. For those who follow the comic books and didn't follow last night's reveal, »

It Only Took a Little Convincing to Get Guardians' Michael Rooker Blue in the Face for Comic-Con

24 July 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Michael Rooker thrilled Marvel fans at San Diego's Comic-Con International on Saturday when he showed up on stage in the full costume, blue-skinned makeup and brightly lit head-fin of Yondu Udanta, his space-pirating Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 character. And while the 61-year-old actor admits the film's director and his longtime friend James Gunn talked him into it, he didn't have to twist his arm. "It was James' idea," laughed Rooker, an alum of The Walking Dead who's worked with Gunn on several films over the years. "It was totally his idea!" "He didn't have to talk too loud," Rooker added. »

Marvel v DC: Who Walked Away the Bigger Hero at Comic-Con?

24 July 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Diego — With both Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios slated for panel time in the San Diego Convention Center Saturday for this year’s Comic-Con, sparks were sure to fly as the two superhero heavies revealed looks at the next phases in their quests to conquer the pop culture world. But who left the biggest mark on the geek masses?

WB was first out of the gate and, unlike in years past, led with the DC material. Other tentpoles like “Kong: Skull Island” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” were held for the back stretch.

Conan O’Brien moderated the event, which went nearly 30 minutes past its scheduled two hours and began with thoughts from the five directors behind DC’s upcoming slate: Zack Snyder (“Justice League”), Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”), Rick Famuyiwa (“The Flash”), James Wan (“Aquaman”) and Ben Affleck (“Batman”).

Things then transitioned to the first »

Sdcc 2016 : Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2… And Why Ravagers Rule!

24 July 2016 4:02 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

James Gunn and Kevin Feige were ready to treat the Hall H audience to some fun as the closing act of the Marvel panel. Gunn came out with an incredible amount of energy… stoked to be back, and with the fans. If there is one thing that you should know about Gunn, is that he is incredibly grateful for his fans. What you see is what you get. That energy and excitement is real. How do I know? I’m lucky enough to call him a friend. This isn’t a humble brag. He deserves the praise of being an honest, kind, and humble creator. (Someone hide this from him though… Shh!)

At the start of his panel, the room was stormed by Ravagers that were there to do nothing more than heckle the crowd… as well as the panel. Sean Gunn, who has done an incredible job of wearing various hats throughout Guardians, »

Kurt Russell Is Star-Lord's Dad in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

23 July 2016 10:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, star Chris Pratt wrapped production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, announcing in a new video from the set that both he and director James Gunn would be coming to Comic-Con this year. The director went on to confirm through social media that the first footage would be shown during Marvel Studios' Hall H panel that took place tonight, and sure enough, the filmmaker is a man of his word and did indeed showcase footage from this sequel. What fans didn't expect is that this footage confirmed a long-running rumor, that Kurt Russell is in fact portraying Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) father, Ego.

Entertainment Weekly reveals that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige introduced James Gunn, who called the Hall H crowd, "the petri dish where Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 was born!" His speech was interrupted by The Ravagers, lead by Taserface (Chris Sullivan), who continually mocked »

Marvel Studios brings the magic

23 July 2016 10:14 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Kevin Feige presided over a boisterous Marvel Studios panel that brought new trailers from Doctor Strange and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2, as well as footage from the sets of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok.

At San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Marvel studio president Kevin Feige unveiled a new company logo and introduced Chadwick Boseman and his fellow Black Panther cast members alongside director Ryan Coogler ahead of an early 2017 production start.

While that project is expected to strike a blow for diversity at a point in modern history that could not seem timelier, Marvel referenced another welcome development when Feige brought its Captain Marvel star Brie Larson on to the stage for a group shot.

That was the final act of the presentation and nothing more was revealed about Marvel’s first female-led superhero adaptation, which will open in theatres on March 8, 2019. Warner Bros has stolen a march in the gender wars, however, and will »
