Marvel Comics Changes Credits in Wake of Jack Kirby Settlement

2 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Just as Marvel was making a big deal about its film announcements this week with a blow out presentation at the El Capitan theater in Los Angeles, the company quietly slipped another change into its comic books. The company released new issues of Fantastic Four and X-Men with a credit line that reads “Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The line was not present in the previous issue of both comics (h/t to the watchful spotters at Bleeding Cool who first flagged this). The credit line is likely to appear in other comics Kirby had a hand in creating

Among Us Hide "The Inhumans"

9 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige has confirmed that the studio will adapt Marvel Comics' 'The Inhumans" for a blockbuster feature film connecting to the rest of the 'Marvel Cinematic Universe', targeting a November 2, 2018 tent-pole release:

"The Inhumans", created by writer Lee and illustrator/co-plotter Jack Kirby, debuted in Marvel's "Fantastic Four" #45 (December 1965). 

Millions of years ago, at the beginning of the alien 'Kree'-'Skrull' war, the Kree set up an observation station on the planet Uranus, to observe sentient life on Earth that had genetic potential. 

The Kree then began to experiment on homo sapiens by splicing 'Eternals' DNA into 'Cro-Magnons', to investigate ways of circumventing their own evolutionary stagnation, while creating a powerful strain of soldiers for protection against the Skrulls.

Their test subjects, that became to be known as the 'Inhumans', formed their own society...

"Captain America: Civil War"

29 October 2014 8:08 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Marvel Studios have confirmed new movies, based on several of their most popular comic book characters, including "Captain America: Civil War", that will be integral to their growing 'Marvel Cinematic Universe':

"Civil War" is the 2006–2007 Marvel Comics crossover storyline built around a self-titled seven-issue limited series written by Mark Millar and illustrated by Steve McNiven...

...which also ran through various other titles published by Marvel at the time.

The plot follows a storyline in which the Us government passes a 'Superhero Registration Act'  designed to have superpowered characters act under official regulation. 

However, those opposed to the act, led by 'Captain America', find themselves in conflict with those in support of the act, led by 'Iron Man'. 

The events of the series touch upon themes of liberty, moral responsibility and civil order, with good-intentioned superhero characters finding themselves on different sides.

Marvelous DA7E 69: Marvel Phase 3 Tmi Overload

29 October 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

“I hope fans always have their rumors and their hopes.” - Kevin Feige, Ocotber 28th, 2014

Welcome To Issue 69!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.

This Week: Marvel announced all their Phase 3 films and I Can't Even.

“We wanted to do this at Comic Con this year, but things were not set.” is what Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said yesterday, kicking off the Q&A at the El Capitan theater in California after the studio released it’s complete Phase 3 lineup. What that says to me is that Marvel was willing to put up with the bullcrap people like myself were gearing to throw on them. Marvel had two of the biggest movies of the year, but somehow it still seemed they were in a foot race with Warner Bros and DC whose »

Marvel announces Phase 3 slate through 2019: Everything you need to know

29 October 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Take that, DC.

We should have known Marvel Studios wouldn't let their bitter rival stay on top for long. Warner Bros and DC last week announced their upcoming slate, which includes the long-awaited Wonder Woman movie, and yesterday (October 28) came Marvel's counter-move.

In the kind of bravura unveiling many were disappointed not to see at Comic-Con this summer, the studio announced no fewer than nine new titles and release dates going all the way through to 2019 – five of them sequels, four of them new standalone projects – and got Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans up on stage to introduce Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.

Below, Digital Spy runs down the must-know basics about each of Marvel's upcoming titles.

What to expect from Captain America: Civil War

28 October 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marvel has revealed new information on Captain America 3. So what do we now know about Captain America: Civil War?

This article contains mild spoilers for the Civil War comics, but nothing major. As ever, the final act of Captain America: The Winter Soldier is discussed here too.

Last night Marvel Studios presented us with a veritable feast of information to gorge ourselves on – a two-part Avengers movie, date confirmations for Thor and the Guardians Of The Galaxy’s next outings and the announcement of Marvel’s debut standalone female superhero and its first bill-topping black character, too.

In all that excitement, the confirmation that Captain America: Civil War will hit screens on May 6th 2016 may not seem too spectacular. After all, we had already heard that some form of Civil War was in store for the Avengers a few weeks ago.

However, there is actually lot of »

Marvel Studios Announces Phase 3 Slate…Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Infinity War & More!

28 October 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

What an incredible day Fanboy Nation! Early this morning at 6:30 a.m. I got the confirmation that I was going to attend my first official Marvel Event in years. Shout out to Disney's lovely Michelle Rasic and Marshall Weinbaum for making it happen. I never been inside the El Capitan theater so it was cool to experience the theater in all it's majesty. I took my seat next to my pal Devin Faraci from BadAssDigest.com in the 4th row who gave me a cool history lesson on the venue. Marvel Studios President and master showman Kevin Feige then came out on stage to Mc the event and rock the house. Marvel certainly knows how to put on a rock concert because over 600 fans waited outside since 3am this morning on Hollywood Boulevard to be one of the lucky few who got in. As a fanboy I'm thrilled what »

The inside story on 'Birdman's' instantly iconic superhero costume

22 October 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Legendary costume designer Albert Wolsky was tasked with outfitting Alejandro González Iñárritu's latest film, "Birdman." But perhaps the film's most stand-out piece of wardrobe ended up landing in a different industry realm: special effects. Mike Elizalde is the owner of Spectral Motion, a creature and prosthetic makeup design studio in Glendale, CA that has plenty of experience in the superhero realm. The company was behind distinct looks in films like "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "Fantastic Four," and Elizalde himself picked up a Best Makeup Oscar nomination for his work on Guillermo del Toro's "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" in 2008. It was that connection to del Toro, in fact, that got him the gig on "Birdman" as his team was tasked with creating the Birdman costume actor Benjamin Kanes wears as a young Riggan Thompson in the film.

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Black Panther'

21 October 2014 7:34 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Further to Marvel Studios filming certain sequences of "The Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron", in Cape Town, South Africa, reports continue to surface that Marvel Comics' superhero 'Black Panther' is introduced in the new film:

"The Avengers: Age of Ultron" hired South Africa-based background performer "extras" casting coordinator, J.P. van der Merwe for a shoot in Cape Town.

"...a lot of the sequel has to do with (The Avengers) place, not only in America, but in the world...", said the new film's writer/director Joss Whedon.

Filming in South Africa affords the Avengers an opportunity to seek out 'T'Challa' aka the 'Black Panther', whose homeland 'Wakanda' is the African nation whose main export is 'vibranium', a metal alloy that makes up the shield of 'Captain America', as well as sought by the villain 'Ultron' throughout various Marvel Comics.

Unused Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer Scenes (Storyboards)

21 October 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Professional storyboard artist, Darrin Denlinger, has sent Film Sketchr some interesting storyboards he created for Tim Story's Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. They're interesting because they depict scenes that did not take place in the film. The first two images below reveal scenes that were going to take place at Dr. Doom's castle in Latveria in which his Doombots were gonna battle the Fantastic Four. The third image includes a scene with the Fantasticar. It would've taken place during the climax. Yes, the vehicle did appear in the film, but it didn't have much involvement in the final battle. The final image is of a rescue mission that would've included The Thing wearing a custom-fit scuba outfit. Yeah, I'm not so sure about that idea either. Still, it's interesting see.

Civil War: 6 things you need to know about Marvel's biggest crossover

17 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

If the rumours are to be believed, Captain America 3 will be based around Marvel Comics' crossover event Civil War, with Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark/Iron Man expected to join Chris Evans in Joe and Anthony Russo's sequel.

For comics readers, the details of Civil War and its aftermath are well known, but for the uninitiated, here is what you need to know about the storyline and the way it could be brought to the big screen:

1. Marvel's mightiest event

While not the first of its kind, the 2006-07 line-wide crossover with its core series and tie-in miniseries and one-shots set the standard for the way such stories would be handled by Marvel (and DC) Comics for years to come.

Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's seven-issue Civil War series still dominates the list of bestselling comics of the 21st century. It launched a pattern of yearly »

Flickering Myth Reaction – Iron Man in Captain America 3 and Civil War

15 October 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth team react to the news that Marvel Studios is heading for a Civil War…

Well, this was some pretty big news for the Marvel Universe. After a few teases of Robert Downey Jr. suiting up for Iron Man 4, it was announced yesterday (by Variety, not Marvel) that Downey Jr. had signed on to feature in Captain America 3, which will adapt the Civil War storyline.

Pretty big news, but what did the Flickering Myth writing and editorial staff think?

Warning: The below conversation contains spoilers of the Civil War comic storyline, which may more may not contain spoilers for Captain America 3.

Ben Rayner: I personally think its a bad idea, it’ll end up being quite watered down and brief I would imagine, especially considering the X-men, Spider-Man and Fantastic 4 all play a big part in the comics…

Sam Thorne: I think it’ll be a huge, »

Iron Man joins 'Captain America 3': 14 thoughts about Marvel's mash-up sequel

14 October 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

1. This is a great idea. Everyone knew that Marvel would figure out some way to keep making movies where Robert Downey Jr. wears some kind of cool metal suit. But Iron Man 4 was always a skeptical proposition. "Fun, Shambling Mess" is basically the best you can hope for when it comes to fourquels. (See: The fish-out-of-time-water shenanigans in Star Trek IV; Stallone solving the Cold War with his fists in Rocky IV; Harry and Ron having a really wacky wizard prom in Goblet of Fire.) Marvel could've positioned a fourth Iron Man movie as a complete in-franchise reboot by »

Go big or go home: Why Marvel's new 'Secret Wars' could be too much

10 October 2014 6:50 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

For comic book fans of a certain age, few comic book stories are remembered as fondly as Marvel's 1984 mega-hit Secret Wars. A yearlong series that birthed countless Marvel fans, Secret Wars was memorable, even if the story—standard rock 'em, sock 'em stuff—doesn't hold up. Now, thirty years later, Secret Wars is happening again. The news was announced Thursday night at the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. exhibit in Times Square at New York Comic-Con. Marvel exec Dan Buckley only had the scantest of details to share: the event will be written by Jonathan Hickman as »
