In a new interview with Yahoo Movies (via ScreenRant), Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson (Room) was asked where Captain Marvel will fit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – on Earth with the likes of Iron Man and Captain America or somewhere up in space with Star-Lord and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Well, it turns out that she will be the one to bring the two different aspects of the McU toegther, with Larson stating: “Well, quite simply, she’s kind of like the bridge between these two worlds. She’s the bridge between what’s happening up in space and what’s happening down on Earth.”

By now, if you're a Marvel fan, you well know that the Guardians of the Galaxy are showing up in Avengers: Infinity War. And you probably also know that Michael Rooker's Yondu becomes an official member of the Guardians in Vol.2 , hitting theaters this summer. So it should stand to reason that Rooker will be part of the massive ensemble cast of Infinity War. Right? Well, we don't have confirmation from Marvel or Disney, but the man himself has offered one big hint that he will return in the next Avengers movie.
Michael Rooker recently shared two photos on Instagram that all but scream that he's returning in Avengers 3. As we know, the movie is currently shooting in Atlanta. Now, we know that Rooker is also in Georgia. And that he has an official Infinity War beanie. We also have proof that he was back in the blue make-up »

One week from today we will witness the final appearance of Hugh Jackman’s tough, complex, badass Wolverine in Logan. It’s the passing of an era, and a sadness we will have to get used to seeing as other comic book actors who have made a name for themselves in their roles (Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, for one) eventually pass on the crown. But in a perfect world Jackman would always be... Read More »

Illustrated by Tyler Stout, poster is available now over on Mondo’s official site and comes in three versions: regular, priced at $65, a variant priced at $110, and a ‘Vibranium’ metal poster priced at $350; take a look here…
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe can be a complicated place to keep track of, with so many characters bouncing in and out of various films. One of the major players is Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, who was first introduced in the now-infamous post-credit scene in the very first McU movie, Iron Man. Fans last saw Nick Fury in 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron, although he skipped out on Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. There are rumors he may be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok, though that seems unlikely since most of the movie is believed to be set in the cosmos. Surprisingly, the actor revealed that his beloved Nick Fury character actually won't be showing up in Black Panther. Instead, he'll probably be making his presence known in Captain Marvel. And he's definitely in Infinity War.
Black Panther recently started filming, but when the full cast list was unveiled last month, »
Marvel has a big year planned for 2017, both behind the scenes and in theaters. Right now, Avengers: Infinity War is shooting in Atlanta back-to-back with Black Panther. And they have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok coming to a multiplex near you in the months ahead. So we're going to be bombarded with various items from all five movies in what is being called a superhero tsunami. Today, we get a new logo for Infinity War.
This logo was spotted on the back of a crew chair on set in Atalanta as shooting continues, and shared on Reddit. The cast for the movie is quite epic and features McU stars such as Josh Brolin (Thanos), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Sebastian Stan (Bucky/Winter Soldier), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet »
If you cast your mind way back to 2008’s Iron Man, you’ll remember that it was Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury who properly kicked off what’s now become known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, revealing to Tony Stark his plans for the Avengers initiative. It was a post-credits scene that may not have meant a whole lot to the average moviegoer at the time, but one that’s now spawned what’s become perhaps the biggest franchise in cinema.
Unfortunately, the last time we saw Jackson’s fan-favorite character was quite a while ago. Back in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, in fact. He’s still around though, and with a role in Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War to look forward to, we should be seeing a lot more of him in the near future. But what about the studio’s plans for the character beyond that? »

There’s nothing quite like building an iconic film scene/location using colourful bricks and a little booklet of instructions. It brings the magic of the movies right into your front room, and it kills time very easily.

With Mel Gibson’s comeback in full swing following the Oscar-nominated Hacksaw Ridge, THR is reporting that he could be set to join the DC Extended Universe, having entered talks with Warner Bros. with regards to directing Suicide Squad 2.
According to the site, Gibson is currently familiarising himself with the material, but Warner Bros. is also considering other directors, including Daniel Espinosa (Life). David Ayer directed the first Suicide Squad, but is now working on the Harley Quinn-led spinoff Gotham City Sirens.
This isn’t the first time Gibson has been linked to a superhero movie, having suggested on several occasions that he’d like to team up with his pal Robert Downey Jr. to direct Iron Man 4 at Marvel. It is perhaps surprising that he’s now in talks with Warner Bros. however, seeing as last year he slammed superhero movies and referred to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice »

Robert Downey Jr.‘s got a lot of Iron Man coming up on his to-do list, but his next new role’s got nothing to do with Marvel at all. He’ll be teaming with director Richard Linklater for an adaptation of the Reply All podcast, specifically the episode titled “Man of the People.” The fact-based tale centers on an early […]

Marvel fans were delighted at the end of last week when Marvel Studios decided to pull down the veil of secrecy and release a behind-the-scenes video for Avengers: Infinity War. Fans got to see Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) hanging out together, which was pretty cool. But perhaps more cool was the look at Thanos that was provided in the video. Now, in another welcomed reveal, Avengers: Infinity War co-writer Stephen McFeely has explained Thanos' grand plan.
Just in case you were worried, Stephen McFeely doesn't really give any spoilers, but just merely gives an idea of what Thanos is ultimately trying to accomplish in vague terms. The reveal comes courtesy of the Doctor Strange Blu-ray/DVD release, as reported by Screen Rant. Here is what McFeely had to say about Thanos' plan in Avengers 3.
"His goal is to re-balance the universe as he sees it. »

Reply All is an audio podcast about how people shape technology and how technology shapes people. Gimlet Media’s 'Man of the People' episode aired on January 19, and this is the one that Linklater and Downey Jr will be basing their project on. As such, the as-yet-untitled film will explore the life of the 'goat-gland doctor' Doctor John Brinkley. In the early 20th century, Brinkley claimed to be a medical doctor after he bought a medical degree from a 'diploma mill' and peddled a cure for erectile dysfunction using the xenotransplantation of goat testicles into humans.

Jon Favreau knows a thing or two about making movie magic, but virtual reality could soon change filmmaking forever.
The Iron Man director-producer was honored at the eighth annual Lumiere Awards, which celebrate the year’s best achievements in cutting-edge technology like virtual reality and 3D, at Warner Brothers Studios Monday.

Favreau, who accepted the Harold Lloyd Award, tells People that he feels the emerging technology is just a new vehicle for entertainment that can complement and enrich the moviegoing experience. »

My ambivalence with Marvel movies has been well documented. As I state in all my Marvel related rants, I may be the most consistently critical columnist writing about the mediocrity of Marvel movies online. If we lived in a world where business cards were still a thing, it would probably be printed on mine.
I’m not one of these people who takes pride in being the vocal minority of fans who find much of the recent Marvel output to be sub par. I wish I left the theater with the same level of unbridled joy so many film fans experience when watching one of Marvel’s two yearly offerings.
But I’m not. I’m the guy that started noticing glaring similarities in so many of the Marvel movies, marvelled at their inability to create a villain that was more »

Has Tony Stark finally lost his sense of humor? Perhaps a little. But who can blame the guy after the events that happen in last year's Captain America: Civil War? Robert Downey Jr. will next reprise his role as Iron Man in Avengers: Infinity War. He's currently on set, shooting his part in this character heavy adventure. And in a recent Facebook post, the actor confirmed that we'll be getting a more mature Tony Stark this time around.
Robert Downey Jr. is known as the face of Marvel Studios. He helped Disney launch their lucrative franchise based on the many comic books nearly a decade ago when the very first Iron Man hit theaters back in 2008. And he has stayed with the ongoing Phases of this sprawling universe throughout it all. So far, he's appeared in three Iron Man movies, two Avengers movies, one Captain America movie, one Hulk movie, »
