The Avengers And The Incredible Hulk Easter Eggs Spotted In The Punisher

The Marvel/Netflix series have always been grittier and more mature than the McU movies, but The Punisher pushes the boundaries more than the previous five shows released on the streaming service. The other Defenders were even forbidden from taking part in it in order to keep its ultra-violent tone distinct and unique. All that said, it is still connected to the wider Marvel universe and even featured a few welcome easter eggs for fans to pick up on.

For instance, in episode 9 – “Front Towards Enemy” – Karen Page receives a threatening letter from terrorist Lewis Wilson while in her office at the New York Bulletin. If you draw your attention slightly to the left, you’ll see a couple of interesting framed front pages of the paper.

Check them out in the image below:

The first one’s headline reads “Harlem Terror” and features a blurry image of the Hulk.

DC Extended Universe Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

  • Collider.com
Last weekend saw the release of Justice League, which brings the total of films in the DC Extended Universe (Dceu) to five. While that may seem like too few to rank, keep in mind that if Warner Bros. keeps on pace with production, that number will grow. The Dceu has had a rough start, but keep in mind that the McU didn’t have a smooth liftoff. Iron Man was fantastic, but then they had to figure out The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2. The Dceu has generated its fair share of controversy, but to its credit, it’s …

Kenneth Branagh discusses the pressure on the first Thor movie

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok has come in for heaps of praise for its change in direction, taking the Thor franchise fully into the realm of cosmic comedy. However, it’s easy to forget now that, at the time of its release, the first Thor movie also marked a huge tonal shift for the fledgling Marvel Cinematic Universe, introducing cosmic elements after the Earth-based adventures of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.

During an interview with Uproxx to promote his latest film Murder on the Orient Express, Thor director Kenneth Branagh spoke about the pressure on the first movie:

“Remember, there were only two pictures in the Marvel Universe. Iron Man, genius, the first one. Hulk hadn’t worked as they’d hoped. And then number three, it was sink or swim before Captain America and then suddenly, oh, it was fine after that. No question that Kevin Feige used to say to me,

Watch: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’s Hulk vs Thor Fight

Thor: Ragnarok‘ has only been in theaters for a little over week, but it is already smashing it’s way through it’s box office competition with a $400+ Million in earnings, as well as currently having a 93% “Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues the more colorful trend that began with ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. Since it seems like pretty much everyone saw the movie in theaters this last week, Marvel Studios has taken it upon themselves to release the (first half) of the fight between Thor and Hulk that was teased in the first trailer for the film. Although this extended clip from director Taika Waititi‘s film only showcases the first part of the confrontation between the two superheroes, the clip does give a good idea of the tone of the film for those who haven’t seen it.

Marvel Was Worried The McU Would Collapse If Thor Failed

Thor: Ragnarok is a monster hit and currently sitting at 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. Forget the fact that it’s the best God of Thunder movie to date; this could be one of Marvel’s greatest films, period.

To quote our own Matt Donato’s review:

“As Thor tumbles head-over-feet through the infinite cosmos, summons thunder blasts and tries to erase the image of Hulk’s gargantuan – how did Tony Stark put it, zucchini(?) – from his mind, “Cosmic Marvel” continues to evolve as the studio’s most fascinating subgenre. It’s where McU mastermind Kevin Feige allows filmmakers the most freedom, thus far.”

Not a lot of people had high hopes for the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU), featuring what many described as one of the blandest superheroes on screen, yet director Taika Waititi managed to give us a splendid adventure that had us glued to our seats.

Em: Nice…I’d like to talk about Jack Colvin for a sec.

Kj: Sure.

Em: I really loved him as McGee. I thought he was terrific. Did he enjoy playing the role?

Kj: Yeah, he did. But he was frustrated sometimes and he would say to me, “How many times can I say that I’m looking for a hulking, green creature?” So, we tried to really write episodes where he had meaningful stuff to do.

Em: Yeah, that was actually my next question because the character changed a bit. He was a little unlikeable in the first season; like a weasel.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Review #2

Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins, Taika Waititi | Written by Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle, Christopher Yost | Directed by Taika Waititi

Standalone Thor films have never really received the love that most other Avengers’ solo films receive and with good reason as the films, up to now, have been either been boring (original Thor) or pretty to watch but ultimately forgettable (Thor: The Dark World). Thor: Ragnarok opened in North America on November 3rd and hoped to change that by taking a new approach by using comedy to liven up the forgettable film series.

This time, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) must not only tangle with his mischievous brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), but also Hela, the God of Death (Cate Blanchett) as she tries to continue what Odin (Anthony Hopkins) stopped her from doing centuries ago, rule the universe. Along the way,

Justice League Producer Teases Fans With Sequel

There’s a great deal of excitement surrounding the imminent release of Justice League – the first live-action, big screen team-up of DC’s greatest heroes – despite a gestation period dogged by problems.

Firstly, its direct predecessor – Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice – proved to be a divisive movie when it arrived in 2016. Secondly, personal tragedy led to Zack Snyder stepping away from production – albeit after most of the film was completed. Thirdly, Joss Whedon was recruited for minor reshoots and post-production finessing. But, those involved remain optimistic about the release of Justice League – and producer Charles Roven even referred to the spectre of a sequel during a promotional event.

The event in question was the official press junket in London, which saw producers Roven and Deborah Snyder attend, alongside the principal cast of superheroes. When asked what they would like the audience to take away from watching Justice League, Roven enthused about a sequel.

The Hulk and Rocket Raccoon will strike up a friendship in Avengers: Infinity War

As Marvel brings together all corners of its Cinematic Universe next year with Avengers: Infinity War, we’re going to get to see a number of characters meeting and interacting for the very first time, and it seems that will lead to (at least) one unlikely new friendship in The Incredible Hulk and Rocket Raccoon!

“It’s a very funny relationship that the two of them have,” Thor: Ragnarok star Mark Ruffalo tells USA Today. “First of all, it’s the biggest superhero and the smallest. Just keeping them in a frame together is a feat and hilarious in itself.”

Rocket won’t be the only member of the Guardians who finds themselves a new pal either, as we heard last month that Adolescent Groot will find himself a new mentor figure who he begins to model himself after.

Hulk And Rocket Will Form An Unlikely Friendship In Avengers: Infinity War

The Incredible Hulk has enjoyed some awesome fan favourite double acts across the McU so far. Banner and Tony were the loveable “science bros” in The Avengers, Bruce and Natasha formed a romance in Avengers: Age of Ultron and, most recently, Hulk and the God of Thunder made for a hilarious team in Thor: Ragnarok. In Avengers: Infinity War though, the not-so-jolly green giant will make his unlikeliest bond yet: with Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Rocket Raccoon.

The news comes from Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo, who revealed to USA Today that his character would be getting pally with the Bradley Cooper-voiced rodent in the upcoming event movie. On what their dynamic would be like, he explained:

“It’s a very funny relationship that the two of them have: First of all, it’s the biggest superhero and the smallest. Just keeping them in a frame together is a feat and hilarious in itself.

Poll: What’s Your Favorite Marvel Movie Series?

Poll: What’s Your Favorite Marvel Movie Series?
As “Thor Ragnarok” hits theaters this weekend (likely generating a massive box office take in the process), now’s as good a time as any to look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.

There was the one that started it all, “Iron Man,” which launched the McU in 2008. Robert Downey Jr. defined — and continues to, in the Avengers movies — the snarky Tony Stark as it went on to spawn two sequels and break box office records.

And then, of course, there’s Thor, everyone’s favorite God of Thunder, with Chris Hemsworth headlining movies ahead of “Ragnarok” in 2011 and 2013. Speaking of the Hollywood Chrises: Chris Evans made his debut as Captain America in his own movie ahead of the release of “The Avengers,” which started its own series.

Guardians of the Galaxy” added a new flavor to the movie universe in 2014, with Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot, and Drax capturing the hearts of fans and

'X-Men' at 25: The Unlikely Story of the Animated Hit No Network Wanted

'X-Men' at 25: The Unlikely Story of the Animated Hit No Network Wanted
In 1992, Marvel wasn't exactly a powerhouse in Hollywood.

Thirty years after writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby had revolutionized comics by creating a universe of characters with human foibles and colorful costumes, Marvel had failed to find steady success on the big screen or on television. Its crowning achievement was the charmingly campy The Incredible Hulk, which ran from 1978-82 on CBS, but other success eluded the company.

TV executive Margaret Loesch had long championed the idea that there was TV gold to be made with Marvel, and she'd spent years pitching shows to the networks. Loesch was...

Kevin Feige responds to criticism that the Marvel Cinematic Universe recycles storylines

When the recent Black Panther trailer hit, there seemed to be two things the internet noticed. One: “My dear God, this looks amazing”. Two: “Wait… this again!?”

In case you missed it, the latest Black Panther trailer shows off the villain Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) in a golden Black Panther costume, squaring off against T’Challa. You may recognize a similar villain in the first Iron Man. Yet again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It was also done in Ed Norton’s The Incredible Hulk (which is technically canon). There have been many expressing frustration over Marvel Studios returning to the same themes over, and over. What does the head honcho over at Marvel Studios think of this? In an interview with Uproxx, Kevin Feige took the time to address the criticism:

“I think it’s just the way we make the movies. I think all the movies are relatively different.

Stop trying to ask Kevin Feige when a solo Hulk movie is going to happen. It’s not going to happen.

If You Long For The Days Of Marvel One-Shots, Eric Pearson Has News For You

Once upon a time, the Marvel Cinematic Universe did not rely simply upon post-credit scenes to add content to the fabric that holds its franchise instalments together. It also created short films – known as Marvel One-Shots – that were designed to provide an opportunity for the giant brand to experiment with other, lesser-known characters, while filling the gaps in storytelling that inevitably open up within the confines of such a vast narrative endeavour. These short films became highly anticipated gems, and were included with Blu-ray releases of theatrical movies. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a Marvel One-Shot since 2014, but that may be a situation that’s heading for change.

Eric Pearson is a co-screenwriter (with Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost) for Thor: Ragnarok, which is about to release in cinemas. The movie is his first feature length script, but he’s highly experienced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – having worked his

Will Hulk Ever Get a Standalone Movie in the McU?
Marvel fans are about to get a big dose of The Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, as he's featured heavily in the new Thor solo adventure. The movie is getting rave reviews so far, and that's in no small part thanks to Mark Ruffalo giving another reportedly solid performance as Marvel's loveable, green rage monster. But that opens up, once again, the question of whether or not we'll ever see a solo Hulk movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Kevin Feige, that door isn't closed. However, it's not something that's happening right now.

The man who makes Marvel Studios run has been making the press rounds for Thor: Ragnarok recently. As has been the case ever since Mark Ruffalo debuted as The Hulk in The Avengers in 2012, he was once again asked about the possibility of a solo Hulk movie. Though he makes it clear that it's not in

Why Marvel Isn’t Making ‘The Incredible Hulk 2’ Anytime Soon

It seems obvious, right? The Hulk is one of Marvel’s most popular characters. His 2008 movie helped launch the McU in the first place, hitting theaters the same year as Iron Man and confirming the existence of a shared cinematic universe among Marvel properties. And yet in the decade since that first movie was released, we’ve gotten nothing: no direct follow-up to Bruce Banner’s story. The Hulk continues to appear in other McU titles, as do his various supporting characters: chief among them being General (now Secretary of State) Thunderbolt Ross, and his son, Joint Counter Terrorism Center representative Everett
