"We have been discussing after 'Avengers' what that would be, what that would look like", said Feige.
"...all of the effort related to Hulk right know is going to 'Age of Ultron'. It’s exciting, because he hasn’t been in any other film, so you can expect to have a lot of 'Bruce Banner' and 'Hulk' in 'Age of Ultron'. Where do we go after that ?
"We’ll see. It will be a little while before we figure that out but, we do think there’s plenty of opportunities with the 'Ruffalo Banner'."

Everyone wants a spin-off. That’s the talk du jour. It’s not enough to just have a franchise, you need solo films to keep that franchise going and going. It’s the new black: release a movie every other year while the main mothership has its flagship super-movie every two or three years, right? Fox hopes to do the same with the “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” series and Mystique (a mooted spin-off while the super-hero team carries on every other few years). And Marvel obviously already has this plan in place: an “Avengers” movie ever few years and in between them they have their solo character movies, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Ant-Man,” “Thor: The Dark World” etc. This will be the plan for the next few years up until 2017 when “Avengers 3” comes out (it hasn’t been dated yet, but that’s a good bet). Remember, Kevin Feige »

When can you see new footage from Guardians of the Galaxy? Want to see Deathstroke in Arrow? How is Paul Rudd bulking up for Ant-Man? What religion does Andrew Garfield think Spider-Man is? Is Elizabeth Olsen intimidated by the Avengers: Age of Ultron secrecy? When can you get a brand new Jock Batman poster? Read […]

Who knew Paul Rudd was such a babe?! The 45-year-old funnyman showed off his surprisingly fit physique Friday in Cabo. The shirtless hunk, wearing red and blue swim trunks, was all smiles as he grasped a football, gearing up to toss it to a pal with one of those bulging biceps! The Anchorman 2 star seems to be one of those genetically blessed humans who miraculously doesn't age, but in recent months, he's almost started to look younger! This could be because of the actor's upcoming role as the title character in Marvel's Ant-Man. And even though Rudd's superhero persona might appear much smaller on the big screen (thanks to "Pym Particles," he can shrink down to the size of an »
In case you need another reason to love Paul Rudd, he showed off his toned physique when he went shirtless for a little beach football in Cabo on Friday. The actor is south of the border with his wife, Julie Yaeger, and a large group of friends as he takes a break before starting filming on the latest Marvel superhero flick, Ant-Man. Paul is slated to play the lead, which means we'll likely see much more of his toned body on the big screen when the film hits theaters in 2015. Interestingly enough, Paul had a viral moment last week when a video of him on Funny or Die's Billy on the Street became a huge Internet sensation. In the clip, Paul and the host, Billy, ran up to strangers on the streets of NYC to ask if they would have sex with Paul for $1. Obviously, lots of women (and men »

Back when casting was underway for Edgar Wright's Ant-man, everyone was suspected to play the lead, including Armie Hammer. During an interview, Hammer stumbled over his words which many, including myself, read a little too much into as being possible evidence he would be getting the lead role. In the end, Paul Rudd got the lead and the Internet returned to paranoid normalcy. Now, we have another non-denial during an interview, but this time for the yet to be announced role of Black »

Thomas Roach with eight predictions for the Marvel Cinematic Universe…
Through years of planning and a chain of successes Marvel Studios has delivered films that both excel at the box office and please their fans. Unlike the other superhero movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has all these characters existing in the same universe and crossing over into each other’s films – this started with Iron Man back in 2008 and the standalone films led to the first Avengers film which saw these extraordinary characters team up.
The success is trying to be imitated by Warner Bros. with the DC cinematic universe and Fox who have ambitions of a shared universe between X-Men and Fantastic Four – the only Marvel properties they own. Marvel Studios has definitely got it right though where the others fail. It is a great time for Marvel Studios and there is no sign of this slowing down any time soon. »

It seems hard to believe that there could even be 25 films in the superhero genre that would be worth putting on a list at this point, much less enough that there are worthy titles I feel were left off, but that's where we are in 2014. As the reviews started rolling in for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," with many people calling it the best superhero movie ever made, we decided to throw the question out to the entire HitFix staff to ask people to rank their favorite films in the genre. We did this several years ago with the top ten, but at this point, we felt like the roster was deep enough to ask people to vote for their favorite 25. What surprised me is just how much variety there were in the answers. There are many films that were on my list that didn't make the final tally, and that was true with everyone. »

Let me get this out of the way. I’m a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU). Although there are some highs, lows, and plenty of flaws throughout the film series, Marvel super producer Kevin Feige has done a bang up job unifying nine movies into one cohesive body of work. With the release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” last week, there are some clues in the sequel film that point to what Marvel Studios will do next in Phase Three. While we know that Edgar Wright’s “Ant-Man” is up to bat in July 2015 and “Captain America 3″ with directors Anthony & Joe Russo returning for another [ Read More ]

We learned a lot from Marvel’s first phase of movies. The Avengers films are a culmination of the individual outings containing threads that will eventually be woven together.
Next year brings us Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring the villainous artificial intelligence that threatens to eradicate humanity. There’s been a lot of speculation around Ultron and his eventual origins in the movies. The ‘cut and paste’ style Marvel studios has been employing with their adaptations of these comics means the traditional Ultron origin story is probably out. Especially considering that Hank Pym isn’t being introduced until the following year.
So if Ultron isn’t being created by Hank Pym, where’s he coming from? Here’s some rampant speculation…
Ultron is created by »

Marvel Studios, reportedly, has a map of films planned out all the way through 2028. So far the nine films they've released have amassed $5.9 billion in worldwide ticket sales, the latest of which, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, recently broke the April box office opening weekend record and managed to make over $300 million worldwide in just ten days. Suffice to say, the Marvel machine looks strong... for now. Next they are introducing the Guardians of the Galaxy later this year, followed by The Avengers: Age of Ultron and then Ant-Man, which means two of their next three films will introduce new superheroes into their ever-growing cinematic universe. Fans will likely swarm the box office and Marvel is clearly showing no signs of slowing down. What I am beginning to wonder is whether or not a possible superhero saturation of the cinematic market will hurt Marvel's films, even if they continue to »

We’re not quite sure who Gerald will play yet, but we know it’s a baddie. Gerald’s work includes Avatar, Escape Plan and TV show Dexter as well as Marvel One-Shot, All Hail The King. He’ll soon be in movies theatres with Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell in Solace.

Anghus Houvouras asks whether the Marvel moviemaking model can be stopped…
The Avengers was a cultural milestone. A movie that rewarded comic fans and validated Kevin Feige’s strategy to bring Marvel’s most famous characters to the big screen. After the record box office opening and a positive reaction from audiences, people began to wonder how long they could keep this streak alive.
Marvel Studios’ Phase One films were always building towards The Avengers. The team up was woven into every movie. Some would argue that many of the Phase One films were nothing more than exposition heavy nonsense (I’m looking at you Cinema Sins) to set up Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for the inevitable slam dunk team up movie that would gross over a billion dollars.

Paul Rudd is no doubt a fine actor with great screen presence, strong comedy skills, and is set to break out into a whole new audience when he becomes Ant-man for Edgar Wright next year, which begs the question: Would you have sex with Paul Rudd for a dollar? That's what comedian Billy Eichner attempts to find out in his latest "Billy on the Street" by parading Rudd down the streets of New York with a handful of ones and an offer most folks can't refuse. Now, you may think this is »

Deadline is reporting that Matt Gerald has been cast as a villain in Marvel’s Ant-Man. Which villain you ask? I have no idea, so here’s a pic of Gerald so you can tell me who you think he could possibly be playing.
Gerald joins Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Patrick Wilson and Evangeline Lilly in the film. Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End) is directing from a script he wrote with Joe Cornish (Attack the Block).
Ant-Man is scheduled to hit theatres July 17, 2015.

During an appearance at Wizard World Comic-Con in St. Louis over the weekend, Nathan Fillion teased that he may have a role in this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy. While this is the first we're hearing about his appearance, it shouldn't come as too big a surprise, since he starred in both of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn's previous features (Slither and Super) and worked with Marvel's Joss Whedon on the cult classic TV series Firefly. Take a look at the video below where, at the 38:30 mark, Nathan Fillion makes his surprise revelation, when asked by a fan if he wanted to get a part in Guardians of the Galaxy. Is it at all possible that he will appear for just a brief second as that other intergalactic 'Star-Lord' Captain Mal Reynolds? Anything is possible...
"Wanting to get a part... or maybe did. I'm just saying maybe. »
Now that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in theaters, people who caught the Marvel sequel already are looking forward to the next few films in their cinematic universe. After all, the first credits scene (yes, there's two) teases a couple new characters in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so that's pretty exciting. But after our heroes assemble for another battle to save the world, we have Phase Three kicking off with Ant-Man from director Edgar Wright in the same year. Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas are leading the film as two different versions of the hero, and Deadline reports Matt Gerald will play a bad guy. Read on! You may not recognize that name, but Gerald (who can also be seen in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Avatar, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and Escape Plan) recently appeared in the Marvel One-Shot All Hail the King, which focused on Ben Kingsley »

Marvel is keeping its next villain all in the family.
After starring in the Marvel One-Shot "All Hail the King" alongside Ben Kingsley, actor Matt Gerald is set to join "Ant-Man" as an unidentified antagonist. It's unclear if he'll reprise his "King" role of White Power Dave; Deadline reports he'll play simply "one of the bad guys."
Gerald's previous, non-Marvel credits include roles as tough guys in films including "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," "Avatar," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and "Escape Plan." He'll next be seen in the thriller "Solace," which stars Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins.
Along with Gerald, "Ant-Man"'s eclectic cast includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Envangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, and Patrick Wilson. The flick is directed by Edgar Wright, from a script by Wright and Joe Cornish.
"Ant-Man" is set to debut July 17, 2015.

The cast of Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man comes from all over the world of film and television. But to find the latest addition, Marvel didn’t even have to look outside the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe. Matt Gerald, who appeared as White Power Dave in the Marvel One-Shot All Hail the King, has reportedly boarded Ant-Man in a villainous role. Gerald joins a […]

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier wracking up huge dollars at this weekend's box office it's never soon enough to look forward to what else Marvel is bringing us, one such new addition to their "Cinematic Universe" is Edgar Wright's Ant-Man as Wright has cast the film's villain. The identity of the character is not yet known, but the chief villain in the feature will be played by Matt Gerald who recently played a character known as White Power Dave in the Marvel short All Hail the King found on the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray, as well as Havoc in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Dwayne Johnson's brother in Faster and a small role in Avatar. So, no, he's not a big name, but Marvel has done well with making use of smaller names both in front of and behind the camera. Ant-Man, which is set for a July 17, 2015 release, »
