Back in 2014, Marvel Studios proved that they could take any random, obscure, and bizarre franchise and turn it into a money machine. This proof came in the form of Guardians of the Galaxy, which was based on a comic that pretty much no one read (and if you’re someone who claims to have read and loved them, you’re probably lying. Stop lying). It was a name that few recognized, and when all said and done, bears very little resemblance to its source material. Needless to say, it was a big gamble on Marvel’s part. However, behind the strange film was a fun premise and a whole lotta heart, and when audiences had a chance to finally see the film, they responded greatly to its oddity.
Now, over two years later, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stands as one of this years most anticipated films (and in »

Late last night, Marvel dropped an exciting sneak peek at Avengers: Infinity War. And while it did give us our first look at Iron Man, Spider-Man and Star-Lord on set together, it also showed off some intriguing new fan art. Two of the pieces show Josh Brolin as the main character Thanos. And another piece, that is sure to get fans salivating, has Rocket Raccoon teaming up with Thor. We've collected these image from the video and embedded them below along with the videos that were released like tiny Marvel presents in the middle of the night.
Thanos was first introduced as a smirking purple alien sitting in a floating chair at the end of 2012's Avengers. Ever since, fans have been waiting for this hulking menace to make his presence fully known. Josh Brolin, who plays the character, did show up for a more substantial role in Guardians of the Galaxy. »
In the McU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), The Infinity Stones (aka Infinity Gems or Soul Gems) are items of absolute power created by Cosmic Entities before the universe exploded into existence. But what are they, and where are they now?
To help answer this question, we've put together this primer to help you sort through the dozen-plus films that have hit so far, and even go on to speculate in which film we'll be seeing the mysterious Soul Stone, which has yet to make its official McU appearance.
Infininity Stone Rundown

Yes, as stated above, we already know they're cosmic items created by certain entities, but the stones are much more than that. They are the ultimate plot device, and have basically powered all of the McU movies in some way or another. Each stone utilizes a containment device, as even touching a stone could destroy a mortal, »

It has been confirmed a number of times that the characters in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be part of the massive ensemble cast for Avengers: Infinity War. This has already sent fans into a speculative frenzy about how Guardians may set up the events that play out in Marvel's Infinity War, which recently started production in Atlanta. According to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, don't expect any direct connections between Guardians 2 and Avengers: Infinity War. Here's what the executive had to say in a recent interview on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
"I always say, all the movies, Civil War is a standalone story about that, but that fit into [the McU]. This is even more of a standalone story than that. This is about the characters. This is about their evolution as heroes, as their own internal family, as the group, a group of »
The guys over at comicbook.com were able to get an exclusive with production designer Charles Wood, whose work for Marvel includes; Thor: The Dark World, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Doctor Strange, and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. While a few of these movies were not the best submissions by Marvel, all of them looked beautiful and two of them stick out in my mind -- Doctor Strange and Guardians Of The Galaxy. Both of these films had intricate and visually appealing sets, think of the Sanctum Sanctorum or the psychedlic ride through alternate dimension in Doctor Strange, and the interstellar prison or the Knowhere scene in GotG. He does kick arse work, and it was only logical that Marvel would hire him to Infinity War as well.
Wood was asked about the daunting task of creating the Infinity War world after he was handed the script for the forthcoming movie. »
