Marvel Studios have constantly raised the bar each and every year at San Diego Comic-Con, so it had a lot of high expectations to live up to in Hall H on Saturday night. Judging by reactions from fans and the amount of content the studio presented, they unfortunately didn’t quite reach the heights that attendees were hoping for.
The studio is known for announcing handfuls of films in advance, showing off footage, and bringing the majority of its casts on stage, but this year they didn’t quite do as much as early buzz and wishful thinking anticipated. There was a very quick panel about Ant-Man, a huge chunk of time devoted to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the announcement of Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
Other than that, there was no mention of upcoming projects like Doctor Strange or an announcement about what films the majority of their newly »

“This place may be the weirdest, craziest place I’ve ever been,” said actor James Spader (“Ultron”) on Comic Con. “It’s really fantastically crazy.”
Marvel brought their A game to the Hall H audience at Comic Con 2014. The studio’s biggest announcement on Saturday was the sequel to Guardians Of The Galaxy ahead of its release on Friday, Aug 1.
For those who couldn’t make it to San Diego, here’s a look at the panel from Avengers: Age Of Ultron where it was officially revealed that Josh Brolin will be seen and heard as the villain Thanos in director James Gunn’s Guardians film, as well as in future movies for Marvel Studios.
The stars of Avengers: Age Of Ultron signed autographs after the panel for the fans.

Last night Marvel Studios held its annual Hall H presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con International, where the big news was the announcement of another upcoming release in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which joins Ant-Man and Captain America 3 as part of Marvel’s Phase Three.
However, that of course wasn’t all that Marvel had in store, with Kevin Feige introducing footage from Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron (you can read a description of the Ant-Man footage here, and the Avengers: Age of Ultron footage here), as well as holding panels for both movies, which you can watch in full right here…
Featuring on the Ant-Man panel were director Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne) and Corey Stoll (Darren Cross / Yellowjacket), while Avengers: Age of Ultron included Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo »

San Diego — Rumor had it that during their highly anticipated Comic-Con panel Marvel Studios would announce which actor is playing the new Doctor Strange in Scott Derrickson's upcoming big screen adaptation. Rumor also had it that Marvel would reveal who is playing Captain Marvel, a much-needed super-powered female Avenger that is expected to cameo in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Neither event happened. Instead, the studio announced that a sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy" has already been greenlit and it already has a release date of July 28, 2017. Oh yeah, and they showed a massive amount of footage from Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel with almost the entire cast on hand. A who's who of Hollywood stars including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elisabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Paul Bettany »

It was also officially announced that actor Josh Brolin can be seen and heard as the villain Thanos in Gunn’s upcoming film, opening in theaters this Friday, August 1st.
Brolin will also play Thanos in future movies for Marvel Studios.
“Josh brings all the weight and stature necessary for a character as iconic and significant as Thanos,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. “We’re incredibly excited for fans to see more of him as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand.”

Anne Marie here, wrapping up coverage from San Diego Comic Con after 8 straight hours of studio announcements. Marvel had some major obstacles to overcome for its brief one hour panel. Edgar Wright's departure from Ant Man had generated negative press, and not everyone was thrilled with the studio's decision to put out release dates unattached to any actual films. WB had been gearing up for a fight, but overall so far Hall H's announcements had been more misses than hits. As the studio delayed 15 minutes into its start time and fans grew mad, the question hung in the air: could Marvel deliver?
Answer: Hell yes.
Marvel president Kevin Feige introduced a panel designed to assuage fan fears: Paul Rudd (new Ant Man), Michael Douglas (old Ant Man), Corey Stoll (confirmed as villain Yellow Jacket), Evangeline Lilly (Ant Man's love interest) and Peyton Reed, who stepped in to direct. »

During Marvel's massive Hall H panel, the main cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron took to the stage, along with Kevin Feige. Even though production is still ongoing, the producer and cast had a little treat for the fans, the first footage from this highly-anticipated sequel!
First off, we reported last month that the opening moments of the sequel include a party scene at the Avengers tower, which gets ruined when Ultron (James Spader) himself shows up. The scenes that were shown take place at this party, with all of the Avengers in their civilian clothes, as each of them take turns trying to lift Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) enchanted hammer, Mjolnir. Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) tries and fails, and he even can't make the hammer budge with his Iron Man hand and War Machine. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) fails to move the hammer, although Captain America (Chris Evans) does »
When it comes to films, especially action-packed Hollywood blockbusters, many of us don’t really mind if every little detail is not correct, as long as we leave being satisfied and entertained by what we have just witnessed. For some however, this is not the case. Many Marvel comic books fans get upset and annoyed by the changes that are made to their favourite superhero character when they take to the silver screen. With a whole host of Marvel-themed games on site, Gala Casino have investigated some of the major differences that these die-hard comic book fans are talking about…
The Incredible Hulk
The Incredible Hulk is one of the most famous Marvel characters, as the big green monster has had numerous films, comics and TV shows made about him. But surprisingly, The Hulk wasn’t actually meant to be green, he was meant to be grey. In the first »

This weekend marks Hercules’ return to the big screen. A staple in the hero canon, the half man, and half god has slayed lions, bedded mortal women, and even hung out with the Three Stooges. Over the past seven decades, the hero has transformed from an Italian Stallion of the 1950s to the Blockbuster Beefcake we see today thanks to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kellan Lutz taking on the title role. With the former’s film (Hercules directed by Brett Ratner) opening this weekend, we thought it was a good time to look at the evolution of Hercules on the big screen.
’50s: The Italian Stallion
A star of the “sword and scandal” genre, Hercules became a regular fixture in Italian cinema during the 1950s. These historical epics were seen as the country’s answer to successful big-budget Hollywood films, such as Spartacus and The Ten Commandments.
Subsequently, the »

For the last few years, Summertime has been super-hero time at the multiplexes. It seems ever other week another costumed character with incredible abilities is battling away for a big chunk of the box office pie. But what about the original amazing avenger? Sure the Man Of Steel was here last Summer and is gearing up for his return (when he’ll face off against another hero). Nope let’s go way, way back to the real original, that demigod Hercules. The superstar of Greek mythology has been a cinema staple since the late 1950′s when American Steve Reeves laced up his sandals in two surprise hits imported from Italy. Reeves was the first of many famed body-builders to portray him right through 1969 with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Hercules In New York and 1983 with TV’s Hulk Lou Ferrigno in a pair of low-budget epics from Cannon Films. The man of muscle also went animated, »

In their annual Comic Con issue, Entertainment Weekly had the first photos for Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron. You may have seen them in EW’s magazine or online, but in case you missed them, we got them all for you right here.
In addition, Marvel also revealed new concept art posters from the film.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier was set up to be the Phase 2 lynchpin between Marvel’S The Avengers and Avengers: Age Of Ultron. The Marvel Cinematic Universe changes dramatically by the end of the film, and that was by design.”

Comic book legend Stan Lee has abruptly canceled his appearance at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the 91-year-old co-creator of Spider-Man, Hulk, Avengers and X-Men was due to make appearances and signings on Friday and Saturday, but is bowing out due to losing his voice. "Unfortunately, Stan Lee has lost his voice due to laryngitis and is unable to attend this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and has regrettably had to cancel his appearances," said his spokesperson, confirming the news. "Stan is otherwise well and in good

Marvel’s Ant-man hits theaters next summer July 17, 2015 and as this is the week of Comic-Con, Marvel has unveiled the first poster for the film.
For more on the history of this super hero, read Here.
Although the character of Ant-Man is somewhat overshadowed by Spider-Man and the mutants of X-Men he predates all of them and is one of the cornerstones of the ever-expanding Marvel universe. A few months after the debut of the Fantastic Four, the forerunner of Marvel, Atlas comics, published “the Man in the Ant Hill” in Tales to Astonish number 27. The title was frequently the home of invading giant “beasties” and monstrous creatures, »

There’s been some talk of a possible Hulk movie by Marvel in the future. Some fans have hoped that it would be an adaptation of "Planet Hulk". However, that probably will not happen. Marvel Studios head man Kevin Feige explains why the popular storyline is not in the cards.
After two unsuccessful film adaptations, the incredible Hulk finally made a come-back in the Avengers, stealing the show and proving that the green-skinned goliath has cinematic potential. Some clever writing by Joss Whedon and a spot-on performance by Mark Ruffalo made the Hulk the best thing about the Avengers.
Since then, there has been on-and-off talk about the possibility of another Hulk film; although if it happens, it will be a few years down the road. Even Mark Ruffalo and Lou Ferrigno—who starred in the old TV series The Incredible Hulk as the Jade giant—have hinted that a film is in the cards. »

Marvel Studios has added a third untitled film to its 2018 roster mere hours after Sony vacated the slot with The Amazing Spider-Man 4, which now has no release time frame after The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was pushed back into 2017.
The May 4, 2018 date that Marvel snapped up will most likely be utilized for The Avengers 3 following the same pattern that Marvel has employed for the first two Avengers films. It marks the sixth untitled film that Marvel has added to its future release date within the past week.
Marvel's Cinematic Phase 2 has two films left with Guardians of the Galaxy arriving on August 1 followed by The Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015. Phase 3 will begin with Ant-Man on July 17, 2015.
Here's the complete Marvel Studios announced slate of release dates through early 2019:
Aug 1: Guardians of the Galaxy
May 1: The Avengers: Age of Ultron
July 17: Ant-Man
May 6: Captain America 3 »
Marvel Studios has announced a release date for a sixth mystery project.
The company confirmed today (July 23) that it will release an undisclosed film on May 4, 2018. That date will put the Marvel project in competition with Madagascar 4 at the box office.
Marvel Studios previously confirmed the release of five other unknown projects between July 28, 2017 and May 3, 2019.
An announcement about the next Marvel Phase is expected to be made at Comic-Con International in San Diego this weekend.
The company's Kevin Feige has promised that each year going forward will see the announcement of an all-new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Thomas Roach with some predictions on which films will fill Marvel’s recently announced release dates…
Marvel Studios recently announced five new release dates between 2017 and 2019. There is already a great deal of speculation over which films will receive these slots and the rest of Phase Three is likely to be announced at Marvel’s San Diego Comic-Con presentation which is only days away. So, taking in factors to do with characters and business I am going to predict which films will make the release dates that were revealed.
July 28th, 2017: The Avengers 3
Kevin Feige has said that each Marvel Phase ends with an Avengers movie and then the next Phase begins. As there is a release date in May 2017 that could still be announced as Avengers 3, right now that seems very unlikely. Everyone has predicted Thor 3 for May 2017 and that would make a lot of sense.

Kevin Feige should be riddled with doubt.
Each time the president of Marvel Studios has greenlit a movie, he’s been barraged by skeptics. “Iron Man” was considered too obscure. “Captain America” too American. And “Thor” too much of a fantasy figure.
With each movie costing in the neighborhood of $200 million to produce, these questions are certainly warranted. But so far Feige has proved his critics wrong, launching some of Hollywood’s biggest franchises: The nine films Marvel Studios has made since 2008’s “Iron Man” have collectively earned more than $6.4 billion at the worldwide box office.
Now comes the 10th, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” debuting Aug. 1 — along with even more raised eyebrows.
The space-set actioner, which will be promoted at this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, revolves around a ragtag group of otherworldly misfits on the run after stealing an orb whose power threatens the cosmos. It stars Chris Pratt, »
