After frantically sprinting from the press to the general admission line and waiting in the queue hall for hours with the help of my Jewel (Jessica Jones’ old superhero identity) cosplaying friend Julia, I had the privilege of attending the Marvel Netflix panel about Daredevil Season 2 and Jessica Jones Season 1, which is set to premiere on November 20. The panel looked back at the first season of Daredevil while showing the first footage of the upcoming second season, and the lucky fans in the audience also had the chance to watch the first episode of Jessica Jones after a discussion with the cast and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (Dexter).
Before the panel officially started, moderator Jeph Loeb, who is Marvel’s Head of TV, trotted on stage with the Marvel Studios fanfare playing in the background with actors Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, and Mike Colter, who play Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered to huge ratings back in 2013, but those soon began to plummet when it became apparent that the series wasn’t what fans of The Avengers had been hoping for. That aside though and the first half of season one was very hit and miss, and it wasn’t until the show tied into the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and introduced Hydra that it really became must-watch TV.
Since then, we’ve seen crossovers of varying importance with the movies, but nothing quite as significant as that. There were certainly some big nods to the likes of Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Age of Ultron though, and with the Inhumans playing a key role in season three, it’s become apparent that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a show still very much rooted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, with Captain America: Civil War around the corner, »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters in just over two months, and since the project was announced, the internet has been ablaze with anticipation, speculation, and misplaced outrage over trivial details such as T-handled lightsabers. One aspect of the long-awaited next film in the Star Wars franchise that has caused a minor hullabaloo amongst only the narrowest minded of fans is the casting of Attack the Block star John Boyega as the first black Stormtrooper. If you.re outraged and awaiting some form of apology or sign of contrition from Boyega, you.re in for a long wait, because if you have an issue with a black Stormtrooper, Boyega.s got three words for you: "Get over it." In an interview with V Magazine Boyega spoke about being mentored by Iron Man himself, Robert Downey, Jr., and addressed the antiquated notion of there being any issue at all »

Game Of Thrones, Iron Man 2 and Despicable Me 2 composer, Bobby Tahouri, has been named as the man to score Rise Of The Tomb Raider‘s music. In the announcement on the Xbox Wire blog, Tahouri said the following:
It’s been an honor working on such a storied franchise. Lara is someone who embodies an indomitable spirit, and crafting music to accompany her on her journey has been a fantastic experience.

Music is incredibly important in video games to help create the right atmosphere, mood and tone, and this is especially true for Rise of the Tomb Raider, which is set to be Lara’s biggest and boldest adventure yet. We love the sound Bobby brings to the game, and we’re excited for fans to »

Marvel Studios has announced three movies without titles for 2020. We did some digging to predict what they might be…
Marvel Studios has made a big announcement. As well as adding Ant-Man And The Wasp (a sequel to the Paul Rudd-starring shrinking superhero movie) to their 2018 slate, and reshuffling the dates of two other Phase 3 movies (Black Panther and Captain Marvel), they also called dibs on three release dates in 2020, without revealing what these movies would be.
This trio of unnamed projects brings Marvel’s slate of upcoming movies to a gargantuan 14 films. This is the order in which they will arrive on American screens:
May 2016: Captain America Civil War November 2016: Doctor Strange May 2017: Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 July 2017: Spider-Man November 2017: Thor: Ragnarok February 2018: Black Panther May 2018: Avengers: Infinity War Part I July 2018: Ant-Man And The Wasp »
Looks like Marvel can pat themselves on the back now. They put a female hero in the title of something!
After being a moderate success in Marvel terms this summer, it looks like Ant-Man will be returning in his own solo movie, which the studio announced on Thursday. The film will be called Ant-Man and the Wasp, which signals an expanded role for Evangeline Lilly’s The Wasp after she was hinted at becoming the heroine during the post credits of the first movie.
The release date is set for July 6, 2018 with no word yet if director Peyton Reed or one of the stars, Michael Douglas, will return. Marvel has only gone back to a franchise’s original director four times — Jon Favreau with Iron Man, Joss Whedon with The Avengers, James Gunn with Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Russo Brothers with Captain America — so a changing of the guard is likely. »

This is all unconfirmed, but the upcoming Marvel event two-parter Avengers: Infinity War could be getting a combined budget of $1 billion.
Bleeding Cool reported the figure after claiming to have spoken to "very well-sourced comic book film insiders" before New York Comic Con.
The publication added that $400 million for Parts 1 and 2 together will be spent on the writer, director, producers and actors, with half of the actor budget going to Robert Downey Jr, who plays Tony Stark aka Iron Man.
Lastly, the project apparently has no script or even an agreed storyline yet.
We're struggling to buy this, especially since the reported conversation took place in a bar - and the $1bn figure is a little extreme when you consider Avengers: Age of Ultron ended up costing $280 million. But it's an interesting claim nonetheless.
The two Avengers: Infinity War films will be shot back-to-back and directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. »
Well it looks like Marvel Studios are going hard or going home when it comes to their two part Avengers: Infinity War films for 2018 and 2019, with a new report suggesting the budget for both movies will be a whopping $1 billion.
Seeing as the joint budget for both previous Avengers outings was $470, this is quite a step up. With that said, the joint takings for both films was just under $3 billion, so it’s a risk Marvel could easily make. The report also suggests that $400 million of that budget will be spent on directors, stars and writers alone, so it looks like we can expect quite a big cast for the ensemble movie which is set to be directed by The Russo Brothers (Captain America: Civil War).
For comparison, let’s break down how much the previous Marvel movies have cost:
Ant-Man – $130 million
Captain America: The First Avengers – $140 million

Back in March 2014, Disney announced that The Incredibles 2 is finally moving forward, with The Incredibles writer-director Brad Bird returning to the helm. While there is still much we don't know about the animated movie sequel, the studio announced today that The Incredibles 2 will hit theaters on June 21, 2019. As of now, no other movies have been slated for release on that day, but it comes just one week after Warner Bros.' Justice League Part 2 opens on June 14, 2019.
Writer-director Brad Bird revealed last month that the Incredibles 2 script is almost done. It isn't known yet if the filmmaker has finished his work on the script, or when we might get the first story details. He did tease in April that his sequel will examine superhero movie trends, which is fitting since his sequel will open between DC's Justice League Part 2 and Marvel's Inhumans (July 12, 2019).

Gwyneth Paltrow has called Hollywood’s gender pay gap ‘painful’ and said that such disparity ‘feels shitty’
“Look, nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr is worth,” Paltrow told Variety. Downey Jr frequently tops Forbes’s best-paid lists, earning $111m (£72.4m) in the past year, nearly $40m more than the best-paid female actor, Jennifer Lawrence.

From the time Iron Man hit theaters in 2008, it was clear that Marvel Studios had a specific mission – they were determined to focus on characterization and storytelling just as much as action and big-budget special effects. Not only was the movie a wild success, but it drew near-unanimous praise, thanks in no small part to Robert Downey, Jr.’s portrayal of Tony Stark.
He humanized the two-dimensional character, making fans fall for the obnoxious billionaire with a heart. As Marvel continued its box office domination, it was clear that the studio wanted to keeping making its heroes into real people, playing with audiences’ emotions as they dazzled their senses.
The studio took the same path in casting its villains, for the most part – Jeff Bridges’s turn as Obadiah Stane in the movie was equal parts endearing, shocking, and terrifying, and it set the stage for some very original baddies in the films. »

Following an announcement that there’s to be a federal investigation into discrimination against female directors in Hollywood, Iron Man actress Gwyneth Paltrow was asked to give her thoughts on the matter during an interview with Variety, and she used the opportunity to discuss the wage inequality between male and female actors, describing the disparity between the two as “painful.”
Robert Downey Jr. nabbed $111 million this year, having starred in just one movie, and was named Hollywood’s highest grossing actor. To put this into context, the highest grossing actress, Jennifer Lawrence, made about $72 million, despite having headlined several films.

Because of this, Paltrow uses her Iron Man co-star as an example:
“Your salary is a way to quantify what you’re worth. If men are being paid a lot more for doing the same thing, it feels s***y. Look, nobody is worth the »

For all the hustle and bustle surrounding the post-credits sting in a Marvel movie, many overlook the intricacy of, you know, the actual credits. From the blueprint schematic showcased at the tail-end of Jon Favreau’s original Iron Man to the stark, mondo-styled artwork that adorned the credits of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, there’s a staggering amount of work that goes into each and every detail, and that’s something Perception can attest to.
Brought in by Marvel Studios to work on Avengers: Age of Ultron, the motion graphics experts soon found themselves with additional cuts that ultimately weren’t used in the final version, and today they decided to show them to the world. In descending order, you’ll find the company’s descriptions of each animation, the design philosophy behind them, and how they frame Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the action.

The actress said her Iron Man and Avengers co-star shouldn't be getting massive pay cheques when women are earning a lot less for doing the same job.
"Your salary is a way to quantify what you're worth. If men are being paid a lot more for doing the same thing, it feels shitty," she told Variety.
"Look, nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr is worth. But if I told you the disparity, you would probably be surprised."
Last year, Downey Jr made $80 million, which shot him to the top of Forbes' highest-paid actors list for the third year running.
Comparing that to the highest-paid female actor, Jennifer Lawrence, who earned $28 million less than Downey Jr in the same period for the same number of films, »
Ever since the first Captain America: Civil War concepts were released, we've been wondering why Scarlet Witch was missing.
"She's coming into her own and starting to understand and have conflict with how she wants to use her abilities. It's a dramatic conflict within her and obviously there's conflict within the [Avengers] as well," she told USA Today.
"I like that they didn't release Scarlet Witch in the promo photos for the teams - it places her as being a wild card, and I like her having that kind of edge that people don't know what she's capable of. They can fear her because she is so incredibly powerful in a different way than the rest of the heroes for the most part. I like »

When Marvel released the full cast list for Captain America: Civil War back in May, many fans were surprised to learn that Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd's Scott Lang, was coming aboard. The announcement made much more sense just a few months later when Ant-Man hit theaters, after Scott Lang had a confrontation with The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) at the new Avengers facility, along with the end credits sequence when it was hinted Falcon and Captain America would call upon Scott to help them free The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). While it may be quite some time before we see a full trailer for Captain America: Civil War, Comic Book Movie has uncovered leaked promo artwork, which reveals Ant-Man's new costume. We also get a look at the new War Machine armor and a fresh look at Black Panther.
Both the Ant-Man helmet and suit are given an upgrade in this promo artwork, »
Gwyneth Paltrow recently spoke to Variety (via "Page Six") about the gender wage gap in Hollywood. Following in the footsteps of notable feminist Patricia Arquette's Golden Globes speech, Paltrow says that the wage gap is "painful": "Your salary is a way to quantify what you’re worth. If men are being paid a lot more for doing the same thing, it feels shitty." While she didn't go as far as to say that Iron Man franchise co-star Robert Downey Jr. shouldn't make what he does — Downey earned $80 million in 2015 to Paltrow's $9 million — she does say, "Look, nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr. is worth. But if I told you the disparity, you would probably be surprised." Let's just say that salary makes Downey the only person in Hollywood who can afford to shop on Goop. »
