After Batman fights Superman and Jared Leto laughs a lot, the next DC movie is Wonder Woman. And unlike 2016’s double-whammy of gritty superheroics, nobody knows quite what the film will deal with, probably thanks to the Warner Bros. erratic scripting method, which has been described as “throwing sh*t at a wall and seeing what sticks”.
However, with shooting set to start in a couple of months, some more concrete details are starting to emerge. The latest rumour says that the movie will be set half in World War I and half in the present day, presumably in the aftermath of Batman V Superman, which slots in nicely with both the rumours of a period movie and the franchise’s desire to build its narrative in a Marvel-style. Although the time-jumping does bring with it its own distinct problem in the overarching story.

Back in October, during a massive Marvel press event, the studio announced Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II, which were given 2018 and 2019 summer release dates, respectively. During the studio's presentation, the video showcased a new look at the Mad Titan himself, Thanos (Josh Brolin), who was seen holding the Infinity Gauntlet, complete with all six of the infinity stones securely in place. Today, we have a new high-res version of this iconic image, courtesy of Comic Book Movie, which gives us a better look at the Gauntlet.
The image comes from an Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette, which is available on Digital HD and arrives on Blu-ray and DVD October 2. While we don't know for sure, it will most likely be showcased in one of the special features entitled Unlocking the Infinite Six, which deals with the six Infinity Stones and will serve as »
After a successful box office run, taking in over $458 million domestically and $1.4 billion worldwide, Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted on Digital HD today, ahead of the Blu-ray and DVD release on October 2. This massive adventure, along with Ant-Man, marks the end of Phase Two, with the upcoming Phase Three set to be even bigger, spanning nine movies between 2016 and 2019. While we still have four years until Phase Three is complete, some are even looking ahead to Phase Four, which we know nothing about at this time, but we may have gotten our first hint in a new Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette.
The preview, entitled Connecting the Universe, shows how several characters from Avengers: Age of Ultron compare to their Marvel Comics counterparts, such as Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) and the villainous Ultron (James Spader) himself. The end of this video mentions that both Klaue and Ultron were part of »
Doctor Strange will open up the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the mystical realm, but it turns out we already got a taste of it in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, is powered by magical forces beyond her understanding. Might what we.ve seen from her telekinetic and mind-altering abilities have some connection with Doctor Strange? Ahead of the DVD and Blu-ray release for Age of Ultron, Cinema Blend spoke with the film.s VFX supervisor Christopher Townsend -- whose Marvel credits also include Iron Man 3 and Captain America: The First Avenger. Since Olsen partnered with a professional dancer to create a whole new vocabulary of physical combat for the character, we asked whether the visuals surrounding her powers set the standard for mysticism in Doctor Strange. Though Townsend said he doesn.t know anything about what Marvel is planning for the 2016 film, he did »
Chris Evans is desperate to continue as Captain America. The 34-year-old actor - who stars as the iconic superhero in the Marvel movies - has revealed his is eager to continue working with the studio, having developed such a prosperous relationship. Chris said: ''Listen, if Marvel wants me they got me. I've never had such a relationship where you have such - I mean look at my resume, I'm used to being on set being like, 'Ah is this movie gonna be terrible?' ''Marvel just can't stop making great movies, they do it in their sleep. It's wonderful directors and producers and actors and scripts, and it's like a playground as an actor.'' Despite this, Chris confessed he was initially reluctant to appear in the 2011 hit 'Captain America: The First Avenger'. He told Collider: ''It's so mind-boggling that I was so tentative in the beginning to jump onboard. »
As you've likely heard by now, the Marvel Entertainment Creative Committee made up of names like Alan Fine, Dan Buckley, Joe Quesada, and Brian Michael Bendis will no longer be playing a role in the Marvel Studios movies. They've been blamed for Edgar Wright leaving Ant-Man and providing notes which disrupted the development of many of their projects. Now, Bleeding Cool has revealed the movies which were most influenced by this group, and it's a pretty interesting list. Those were apparently Iron Man, Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War. Those they didn't work on were Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, and Avengers: Age Of Ultron. While I'm not doubting the site's sources, they're taking a very anti-Kevin Feige approach with these stories, and the fact that the movies they've been told the Creative Committee »
After filming in Atlanta and Germany, production wrapped last month on Captain America: Civil War, Marvel's first Phase Three movie, which hits theaters on May 6, 2016. Like most of Marvel's stars, Chris Evans signed a long-term deal with the studio, locking him in for six movies, but that deal is about to end, since Captain America: Civil War marks his fifth project under that pact. While promoting his directorial debut Before We Go, which hits theaters today, Chris Evans revealed the prospect of his Marvel deal expiring is "terrifying." And he'll stick around as long as Marvel wants him. Here's what the actor had to say to Et Online.
"It always feels so good to kind of wrap and just say, 'Alright, one more down.' But it's also kind of like high school in a sense. You keep looking to when you're going to be done, and we're almost done now, »
Without Captain America: The First Avenger, there would be no Before We Go. When Chris Evans was offered the role of Steve Rogers in the 2011 Marvel Studios film, he initially turned it down. He relented, of course, and he has reprised his role as the comic book character several times since. What he didn't know at the time, of course, was that being involved in the blockbuster film franchise would allow him to pursue other creative endeavors—namely, directing. "In retrospect, it was such a good decision," Evans told E! News' Maria Menounos while promoting Before We Go in Hollywood Wednesday, adding, "My brain has this amazing talent of focusing on the negative and magnifying it to »
Asking Stan Lee to pick his favourite Marvel actor is a bit like making him choose a favourite child.
Marvel's post-credit Easter eggs ranked from worst to best
Shortly after Ronda Rousey defended her Ufc women's champion title earlier this month, the actress/Mma fighter revealed during a Reddit Ama session that she would like to play the title character in Captain Marvel. Marvel Studios hasn't announced any casting for their Phase Three superhero adventure yet, which hits theaters November 2, 2018, and it isn't known if the studio will even consider the actress for the role. As it turns out, though, Ronda Rousey has been offered a huge sum of money to play Captain Marvel in a new porn parody, according to TMZ Sports.
Porn director Axel Braun has reportedly offered Ronda Rousey a whopping $5 million for three sex scenes, which will require her to shoot for two weeks. The filmmaker even apologized to the actress in advance, in case she is offended by the offer. There is no word on how Ronda Rousey responded to the offer, but »

Tony Stark confronts General Thunderbolt Ross
Tony Stark's hypercool presence is a welcome one - and it's neat that Ross's drink is Gamma green - but Marvel never followed up on this tag in future films and eventually had to make a special short to explain it. Incidentally, William Hurt will be back for Captain America: Civil War next year, where hopefully he won't punch any plot holes into the script. »

They both come from Marvel, but Captain America and Deadpool could not be more different. One is a patriotic soldier with wholesome values, the other is a fourth wall-breaking nutcase whose life is filled with explosive shenanigans. So imagine how surprising it is to see a Captain America movie trailer edited to feel like next year’s Deadpool film, and even more surprising is that it actually works. The YouTube account DailyAsgardianNews has put together a trailer for the Captain America movie we’ll never see, titled Captain America: The 95 Year Old Virgin. The clips, of course, are from Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the tone, soundtrack, and even a few lines and sound effects are from the recently released Deadpool red-band trailer. The Captain America trailer kicks off in similar fashion to the »
