After dominating at the box office this summer, with a whopping $1.1 billion haul during its theatrical run, Marvel is getting ready to bring Captain America: Civil War home with a Digital HD release on September 2 ahead of the Blu-ray and DVD debut on September 13. Earlier today, we showed you a deleted scene and two new previews that shed some light on Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Vision (Paul Bettany), who make up a small part of this massive ensemble cast. As it turns out though, directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo revealed that two different Marvel Comics characters were almost included in the movie.
When production started on Captain America: Civil War last May, Marvel Studios released a full cast list, which revealed the surprising news that Ant-Man star Paul Rudd will return as Scott Lang, and William Hurt will reprise his role from 2008's The Incredible Hulk as General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross. »

New York City.
Not only is it one of the most important cities in our world, but it's also probably the most important city in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While it's most famous for being the setting of the climactic final battle in The Avengers, the city has also factored into The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The First Avenger, it'll loom large in this fall's Doctor Strange, next summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it's also the backdrop for everything we've seen so far in Marvel's Netflix shows Daredevil and Jessica Jones.
We know that next fall's Thor: Ragnarok will find its titular hero and his trickster brother popping in on the Big Apple for a bit.
Director Taika Waititi and his Thor: Ragnarok production are currently filming in Brisbane, Australia, using that city as a stand-in for New York. He and star Chris Hemsworth had some fun with photos »

With over a dozen films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe under their belt, we've had plenty of examples of Marvel shuffling their various characters between movies, be it Robert Downey Jr. making an appearance in The Incredible Hulk or Hayley Atwell popping up in Ant-man, but so far, the Guardians of the Galaxy have been operating all by themselves on the other side of the galaxy.

Robot Wars episode 4 was the series’ best yet, thanks to a thrilling performance from an impressive flipper…
Hitherto the three most exciting moments in my life were just eclipsed by an episode of Robot Wars. Specifically, the moment in an episode of Robot Wars that Team Apollo went on a flipping rampage. That’s not just a Britishism, Apollo literally flipped its way around the arena on a flipping rampage. It was flipping brilliant.
It’s not for nothing that Team Apollo shares its name with the space missions that put man on the moon; that performance, which left House Bots Dead Metal and Matilda as helpless and paralysed as upturned woodlice and booted the series’ most expensive robot out of the arena, »
The film is set at a horror theme park during Halloween where a night of fun turns deadly as a costumed killer begins slaying unsuspecting patrons who believe that it’s all part of the festivities.
“We have loved the concept of ‘Hellfest’ since Gale brought it to us and we have been waiting for exactly the right director,” said CBS Films President Terry Press. “Jennifer came to us with both the passion and the vision necessary to make ‘Hellfest’ a terrifying Halloween tradition.”

Back in 2011, Marvel opted to give a scientific explanation for Asgard, positioning Thor and company as an advanced alien civilization as opposed to introducing magic into the grounded world establishing by Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.
However, that’s not going to be the case with Doctor Strange, as director Scott Derrickson has revealed that the film will introduce “real” magic into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and that the Sorcerer Supreme’s powers won’t be “explained away scientifically”.
“Magic is magic in this movie,” Derrickson tells GamesRadar. “It’s not something that’s explained away scientifically. It’s not something that’s easy to define. As magic should be. Magic should be mysterious. There’s mystery to magic and there’s mystery to the tone of the movie. Mystery is a good thing.”

There was a time when Marvel’s The Avengers was a risk. Not just because it was a new kind of franchise film that was assembled Voltron-style from five preceding movies (Iron Man, Thor, Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avengers, The Incredible Hulk), but also because its team-up event narrative, rooted in a shared universe of superheroes, was recognizable to anyone who knew what a “pull list” is. It was pure comic-book storytelling.
Between Bryan Singer’s first X-Men movie and Jon Favreau’s Iron Man, superhero movies were wary about adopting anything that was too comic book-like—especially narrative tropes like crossovers, multiverses, events, and team-ups. It wasn’t only that they were too cumbersome, even ambitious, to implement; studios also generally feared that mainstream audiences wouldn’t accept them. Marvel’s gamble to directly transplant the storytelling devices they had been using for decades in »

The next “Avengers” adventure will exist as one movie, not a previously announced two, Walt Disney said on Friday. The studio will release “Avengers: Infinity War” as planned on May 4, 2018. What was slated to be the second part in that story, “Avengers: Infinity War Part II,” has now been renamed as an “Untitled Avengers” project. Presumably, this will be a completely different story involving the heroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). That title is still scheduled to hit on May »

That was San Deigo Comic Con, my friends, Sdcc 2016 passed us by like a whirlwind last weekend and for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Hall H panel that whirlwind came with unprecedented security to make sure none of that sweet, sweet video leaked out. Warner Bros, with the DC Comics stuff, they put everything online right away, Marvel...not so much.
We did luck out into some video from the Marvel Netflix panel, which decided to go balls out at a convention where not much was expected of them. It seemed reasonable that Luke Cage would get to suck up the spotlight, because we’re mere months away from the debut of his Netflix series, but basically rolling out teasers for the rest of the Netflix Phase 1 was very impressive.
First, though, Cage. Damn, this series looks hot and executive producer Cheo Coker really seems to get how important this is. »
Every year at San Diego Comic Con International, Marvel reveals new props and costumes from upcoming films and tv shows at their booth not he show floor throughout the convention. On Saturday morning, Marvel revealed The Incredible Hulk gladiator armor from Thor: Ragnarok. Hit the jump to see a first look. The following photo and video […]

Ever since 2008, when Marvel began merging their cinematic franchises in The Incredible Hulk, many comic characters have appeared on-screen. Some have become major players in the McU, some are just minor characters, some have been killed-off and some…have been completely forgotten. Cinelinx looks at four major Marvel villains who were introduced in the McU but have since been totally forgotten.
The Leader: In the comics, the Hulk’s arch-enemy is brainy bad-guy Samuel Sterns, Aka the Leader. Sterns was introduced into the McU in The Incredible Hulk (2008), played by Tim Blake Nelson. In the film, Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) seeks help from oddball scientist Sterns, who proves to have his own agenda. He has synthesized samples of Banner’s irradiated blood, hoping to tap into its “limitless potential”. When last we see Sterns, he gets some of the Banner-Blood into a wound on his forehead. He smiles as his head starts to grow. »

We are now well into the age of superhero movie crossovers. The Avengers have been assembled (and recently disassembled) on the big screen for a few years now and the Justice League are all set to join them in 2017. We think of this as a new phenomenon, kickstarted by the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008, but actually, some form of crossover in superhero movies has been around for a while now. For instance, The Incredible Hulk TV movies saw the rage monster team up with Thor and Daredevil.

Seeing this type of thing on the big screen took somewhat longer, but Hollywood did eventually catch up. From the early hints at cinematic crossovers in the 1990s to the full-on mash-ups of today, here are eight of the best superhero movie crossovers ever. As always, if we’ve missed any, make sure to »

Marvel Studios has just launched its latest production, as the cast and crew of Thor: Ragnarok have descended upon Australia's Gold Coast to begin the process of bringing this "intergalactic buddy road trip movie" to the big screen.
