Coming off a remarkably slow month at the box office, Guardians of the Galaxy should get things back on the right track this weekend. The 10th movie in the "Marvel Cinematic Universe" will likely set a new August record, and could even come close to matching last year's Thor: The Dark World.Meanwhile, James Brown biopic Get On Up opens at 2,468 locations. For this weekend, at least, it will likely wind up in third place behind fellow Universal release Lucy.Opening at 4,080 theaters*a record for an August release*Guardians of the Galaxy is the first "original" Marvel movie since Captain America: The First Avenger, which debuted around the same time in 2011. It's also the fourth Marvel title to hit theaters after The Avengers propelled the brand to the next level; all three previous releases have debuted to at least $85 million.Conventional wisdom suggests that the Guardians won't be able to match those sequels. »

The summer box office is in a slump, with revenue down more than 20 percent since 2013. If everything goes according to plan, however, Chris Pratt and his heroic band of misfits will decrease that percentage when Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures' Guardians of the Galaxy premieres Friday. James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has become the top August pre-seller in Fandango history, and it's projected to earn more than $70 million in its opening weekend. What's more, it's out-pacing Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, which opened to $65.7 million and $65.1 million, respectively. The movie stars Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, who assembles a team of renegades to save the »
Greetings all, thanks for taking the time out of your day to read this editorial! This article does contain some Spoilers so be warned. Ever since the first Iron Man film, Marvel Studios has built up this repetoir of movies that ended with a stinger scene that would tease things to come. We got confirmation of an Avengers film in Iron Man and a teaser at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, with the other films, excluding Iron Man 2, further setting up the climactic Avengers movie. That was what happened with Phase One, as the series has been dubbed. Those scenes were Marvel's way of keeping fans in suspense for what was going to be one of, if not the biggest super hero movie of all time. We passed that. We're in Phase Two now after the massive success of Phase One. What strikes me now however, »

Marvel Studios may have failed to make many major announcements at the San Diego Comic-Con this weekend (though to be fair, they did reveal the release date for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel), but those lucky enough to be at their panel on Saturday night were treated to brand new footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel have revealed that this footage won’t be making an online debut anytime soon, and Guardians of the Galaxy director quickly took to his Twitter account to debunk rumours that unlike Captain America: The First Avenger – which had an Avengers Assemble teaser – this will be attached to the end of his movie.

Ant-Man director Peyton Reed and cast members Michael Douglas (Hank Pym) and Paul Rudd (Scott Lang), along with Corey Stoll and Evangeline Lilly descended upon the Comic-Con crowd in Hall H today, and even though shooting doesn't begin until August 18, they did share a little something with the fans, a brief glimpse at test footage with Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd.
The Ant-Man footage begins with a shot through a laboratory, where we see numerous beakers filled with different colored liquids, along with a glass cage with an anthill inside. The footage cuts to a rooftop where we see Ant-Man there in his shrunken state, but it seems he is being pursued by full-sized humans. Lang is petrified, which leads Pym to say, "Geez Lang. You'd think someone only shrunk your balls." An ant lands and Scott Lang climbs on his back, petrified, as we can hear Pym talking to Lang through the helmet. »
This afternoon, Legendary Pictures took the opportunity to showcase director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) showcased footage from his forthcoming fantasy epic Warcraft, and while that footage probably won’t see the light of day online, Legendary has released an incredibly brief title teaser video, which you can watch here…
And via Screen Rant, here’s a brief description of the footage that was shown today:
The Warcraft teaser that followed was narrated by both a human and an Orc from the film (each seemed to be reading from their war diaries), indicating that the movie will very much examine what leads to the conflict between the two races from both of their perspectives (think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Most of the footage was focused on depicting the various environments and landscapes of Azeroth, there was also some material teasing actual battle sequences involving the two clans. »

To say that Marvel’s Agent Carter, the next addition to the Marvel television universe on ABC, is highly anticipated is pretty much an understatement. With the popularity of Hayley Atwell’s character in both Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Solider, not to mention the awesome One Shot Marvel produced, it’s not hard to get excited at the aspect of a whole show centering around Peggy Carter. While at San Diego Comic Con promoting the new show, I was able to sit down to a round table interview with Hayley Atwell herself and also Executive Producers Louis D’Esposito, Stephen McFeely, Christopher Markus, Michele Fazekas, and Tara Butters to discuss what is in store for Agent Carter. During the conversation, they talked a lot of what the portrayal of Carter in her daily life, living a double life to her friends and family, »

Anne Marie cowering before GodzillaHello again! Anne Marie here, beaming to your computer screens direct from San Diego Comic Con. Though I thought it wasn't possible, it seems as though the convention got bigger and more crowded. So I learned my lesson and stayed far from the exhibition hall today. Instead, I wandered the Gaslamp District, saw some panels, and did some interviews. (More on those later.) But most of all, I waited in line. In a fun way!
Here are 6 new things I that learned today.
1) Marvel TV won't tell us anything about its Netflix shows. This despite the fact that Daredevil is already filming. Either they're saving that for the Marvel panel tomorrow afternoon (which seems unlikely), or Netflix hasn't yet gotten Sdcc-friendly. Netflix has been absent from Comic Con this year, which was suddenly more conspicuous when fully five of Marvel's new shows were absent from the discussion: Luke Cage, »

Marvel Studios announced today at San Diego Comic Con who was going to be directing the first episodes of Agent Carter all of which are big names surrounding the Captain America franchise. Come inside for all the wonderful details.
Marvel Studios co-president Louis D'Esposito himself will actually be directing the pilot. The Russo Brothers, of Captain America: The First Avenger fame, will be directing episodes two and three. The big surprise came when Joe Johnston, the director of Captain America: The First Avenger, stated he wanted to do the fourth episode. Fans apparently felt a collective sigh of relief given the Internet rumors about Johnson clashing with Marvel's top brass.
They later released the following press release: Marvel's Agent Carter - starring Captain America's Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the »

Much to the chagrin of fans, the Marvel TV panel at San Diego Comic-Con didn’t include any information or announcements about the upcoming Daredevil series, but did provide some information about the new Agent Carter show. We originally assumed that it would be a spin-off of the Agent Carter One-Shot short film included on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray, but as it turns out the show will be a prequel, and will take shape under a few Captain America directors.
The series will take place in 1946, after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. Star Hayley Atwell is reprising her role as the titular British officer-turned S.H.I.E.L.D. founder, and introduced a short teaser that featured footage from The First Avenger and the Agent Carter short, as well as a voiceover that stated:
“The world is changing and if history has taught us anything, »

Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel TV, revealed that they're bringing back in-house favorites to direct the first four episodes of Agent Carter's eight-episode run, which debuts in 2015. Louis D'Esposito, who directed the Agent Carter one-shot, will direct the first episode, while Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo are tapped to helm episodes two and three. Joe Johnston, the director of Captain America: The First Avenger, "wants to do episode four if his schedule allows," Loeb said. Hit the jump for more on the Marvel TV panel from Comic-Con.

Marvel's TV-related Comic Con panel is finishing up with some news regarding its two shows on ABC. First there's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." which announced several new characters that are set to make an appearance in the second season.
The previously announced Lucy Lawless is confirmed to be playing veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Isabelle Hartley. Joining her this season will be Nick Blood as Lance Hunter who has been reimagined from the comics as a mercenary in this interpretation whom Coulson turns to for help.
Finally there's "Dollhouse" actor Reed Diamond who has been cast the big bad of the season - Daniel Whitehall (aka. The Kraken). In the comics, Whitehall is a legendary Hydra agent who spent decades training the group's best talent.
The biggest news though came through a video with Patton Oswalt in character as Agent Koenig. The »

Marvel Studios will take to Hall H tomorrow for its big presentation, during which an announcement on Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expected. However, today was all about the small screen side of the McU, with Jeph Loeb hosting the annual Marvel Television Presents panel, during which we were treated to a host of news about ABC’s Agent Carter and the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
With regards to the Hayley Atwell-headlined Agent Carter, Marvel Studios co-president and director of the Agent Carter One-Shot Louis D’Esposito will direct the first episode, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier helmers Anthony and Joe Russo tackling the second and third episodes, and Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnson keen on helming the fourth. Here’s a video of Hayley Atwell and company discussing the upcoming series…
And as for the second season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., »

Is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. bringing on a costumed hero?
At Marvel TV’s San Diego Comic-Con panel on Friday, a special video featuring not one but two Patton Oswalts (as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Billy and ??? Koenig) announced that Barbara Morse – aka costumed Marvel comics hero Mockingbird – was calling for Director Coulson. “She just wanted to say that if he needs her, she’s in,” declared one the Koenigs.

Marvel has announced that Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston and Captain America: The Winter Solider directors Joe and Anthony Russo will be brought in to direct episodes of the studio's new ABC TV series Agent Carter.
Co-president of Marvel Studios, Louis D’Esposito, will take on the pilot episode, which will star Hayley Atwell reprising her role from the films as Peggy Carter, one of the original S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. The series is set in 1947 after World War II has ended and while Steve Rogers is frozen in ice.
I love that Marvel is bringing on these directors to help bring this series to life. It just tells me that there's a good chance that it's going to be a great series. Here's the synopsis for the series:

Marvel is currently holding down their TV panel at Comic-Con right this very second, and just dropped two big announcements about ABC's mid-season adventure series Marvel's Agent Carter. It seems the hour long drama will be getting three directorial alumni from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Maybe even more surprising is that the two directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, brothers Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, are returning to the Marvel Cinematic universe to direct not one, but two episodes of Marvel's Agent Carter. They will help set the tone for the series, taking on the second and third episode.
It was also asked if Dominic Cooper was returning to play Tony Stark's father Howard Stark, which »
While the Russo brothers have closed their deal, Johnston’s deal is being finalized, Marvel said during the company’s TV panel at Comic-Con in San Diego on Friday.

At the San Diego Comic-Con panel for Marvel's Agent Carter the big reveal was which directors were coming on board to direct the first episodes of the ABC television series. Marvel Studios co-president Louis D'Esposito is directing the pilot. The second and third episodes will be directed by the Russo Brothers ("Captain America: The First Avenger"), who are quite familiar with the television format as they made their mark directing the paintball episodes for NBC's Community. But perhaps the biggest surprise is that Joe Johnston, who directed the 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger wants to direct the fourth episode. This would dispell rumors of conflict between him and Marvel. Marvel's Agent Carter - starring Captain America's Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working »
