At the end of Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, a new team is formed, lead by Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), which includes Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and The Falcon (Anthony Mackie). When Ant-Man hits theaters in two weeks, one of these Avengers will be present, as teased in a new TV spot, although we only get a brief glimpse of him. That Avengers is none other than Anthony Mackie's Falcon, who appears in his third Marvel movie following Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron

At the beginning of the year the Fourth of July weekend looked like it would be an epic box office showdown between "Magic Mike Xxl" and "Terminator Genisys." In fact, many pundits (including this writer) believed "Magic Mike" would easily take the frame. How wrong we were. The initial estimates are in and "Jurassic World" snuck by "Inside Out" to win the holiday weekend. Already the no. 1 movie of the year, he Universal Studios blockbuster made another $30.9 million over the three-day frame for a spectacular $558.1 million so far. At this pace it seems inevitable that it will surpass "Marvel's The Avengers" for no. 3 and sit behind "Avatar" and "Titanic" on the all-time domestic grossers list. In fact, surpassing "Titanic's" $658.6 million cume isn't out of the question. Only $795,000 behind "Jurassic" was Pixar's "Inside Out." The animated hit took in another $30.1 million for a stellar $246.1 million so far. The potential Best Picture »

Hank expands on his description of his research, saying it's beyond the technology used by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) for the Iron Man suit - linking the new Marvel film with ones that have preceded it.
The clip features a report on the destruction seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron followed by one on the release of petty thief Lang from prison. »

At times, the filmmaker feels like the Hollywood equivalent of The Fast Show's Unlucky Alf - frequently attaching himself to fanboy-friendly properties before seeing them vanish into the wind. We take a look back at the multiple del Toro projects that never made it to the starting line below.
The flip side of the regular, primary colours Justice League heroes, DC Comics' Dark united such disparate characters as Deadman, Zatanna, John Constantine and Swamp Thing. Del Toro penned a script for the film but reportedly dropped out to focus on Crimson Peak and Pacific Rim 2.
Warner Bros has a "dark and gritty" mandate for its comic-to-movie properties, leading many to believe that »
Anghus Houvouras with the five most anticipated All New, All Different Marvel titles…
The comics industry has been relaunch heavy of late. The last few years brought comic fans a number of shake-ups, reboots, and re-imaginings to help bolster interest in everybody’s favorite funnybooks. DC started this trend with the New 52, and Marvel quickly countered with Marvel Now. Apparently, the New 52 got old quick and Marvel decided that ‘Now’ wasn’t soon enough. DC once again took great liberties with their characters as part of the new DC You line, and Marvel has retooled the vast majority of their titles with the ‘All New, All Different’ moniker. These editorial shake ups and games of creator musical chairs have been met with some resistance of late, but the truth is there have been some really interesting books spinning out of these frequent realignments.
With their announcement this week of so »

In exactly two weeks, Marvel's Ant-Man will hit theaters, but for those who can't wait that long, the studio has released a final trailer with plenty of brand new footage. The trailer includes a scene where Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) name-checks The Avengers, who he thinks they should call first before he tries on the Ant-Man suit, while Scott's mentor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) has some negative comments about Tony Stark's Iron Man suit, calling it "cute technology." It makes one wonder if Scott will bring this line up if he ever interacts with Robert Downey Jr.'s character in Captain America: Civil War.

Bad news for Legendary Pictures’ King Kong feature Kong: Skull Island, with Deadline reporting that both Michael Keaton (Birdman) and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) have exited the project, with its lengthy shoot leading to scheduling commitments. However, Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) remains attached.
Kong: Skull Island is set to be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) from a script by Max Borenstein (Godzilla) and John Gatins (Real Steel). Thought to take place in the 1970s, Skull Island promises “to fully immerse audiences in the mysterious and dangerous home of the iconic ape as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island.”
Despite the departures of Keaton and Simmons, Legendary is still aiming to start principal photography later this year, ahead of a March 10th 2017 release.

Marvel has taken a lot of crap over the years about its incredibly shrinking superhero (“so he just gets really small?”), but the studio is setting the record straight on just how cool the comic-book character’s miniaturizing technology can be. In the first clip from Ant-Man, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) tests out his new suit for seemingly the first time, only to get the surprise of his life when merely standing in a bathtub turns into a hair-raising fight to stay alive.
That we hear Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) dryly communicating with Scott over some sort of suit-contained radio suggests that this scene takes place after Scott steals the Ant-Man armor but before Hank recruits him to actual don the costume and fight for good.

With Ant-Man hitting theaters next month, I’m going to do my best to stay away from the rest of the promo material. »

Sony Pictures Classics has dated Marc Abraham's I Saw the Light for a Nov. 27 release, which all but guarantees an Oscar push for the film and most likely a big push for Tom Hiddleston who stars in the feature as legendary country western singer Hank Williams. The pic is now slotted alongside fellow Oscar hopeful The Danish Girl, though both films will probably be looking to make a big splash on the Fall film festival circuit, already establishing an awards season narrative before the general public lays their eyes on either of them. The pic, which also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Bradley Whitford, David Krumholtz and Cherry Jones, chronicles Williams' meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life. Hiddleston is probably best known to most as Loki from The Avengers film franchise, but 2015 is looking to be a year where he makes a »

If The Avengers was a sports movie, and The Winter Soldier was a '70s conspiracy film, then what will the new Spider-Man be? According to Marvel's Kevin Feige, the answer is: a John Hughes movie. "It’s the soap opera in high school, and those supporting characters that are interesting," Feige told reporters at the Ant-Man junket this weekend. "We haven’t seen a John Hughes[–style] movie in a long time ... we’re inspired by him, and merging that with the superhero genre in a way we haven’t done before excites us." But what would a John Hughes superhero movie look like? Let us present Pretty in Red and Blue, the story of a young kid from the wrong side of the 7-train tracks who longs to fit in with the cool kids. His efforts seem hopeless, until a chance encounter with a radioactive spider helps him learn to believe in himself. »

Those who have been clamouring to have a big screen solo adventure for Black Widow might just have to wait a little bit longer, because according to Kevin Fiege, The Wasp could be a major part of the McU.
Speaking at a press event for Ant-Man, Feige talked about The Wasp and her place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“We have plans for her in the future,” he said. “And we see that not-so-subtly in this film [Ant-Man].”

While next year's Captain America: Civil War will be Marvel's big draw in line with Marvel's The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, with nearly every established character in the McU making an appearance, it's Doctor Strange that will bring in and establish yet another new character to this sprawling cinematic universe. Some have wondered how Marvel will tackle the character, since a lot has changed in our own modern culture since the introduction of Doctor Strange in the comics. One thing is very much true. It will be a head trip. And stay firmly embedded it ins traditional weird roots.
Spoiler! Ant-Man ends with a very trippy scene that is compared to the ending of 2001: A Space Odyssey. And it may surprise some audiences with just how weird it gets. But according to Kevin Feige, who spoke with Bmd this weekend, we haven't seen anything yet in terms »
While the McU.s version of The Avengers probably contains the most famous members ever to be on the team, it.s not in fact the first members the group ever saw. Ant-Man and The Wasp have been missing since day one. Potential Spoiler Warning for Marvel.s Ant-Man. With the upcoming Ant-Man movie we.ll get introduced to both characters for the first time. We know we.ll see Ant-Man again after this but what about The Wasp? Turns out we.ll be seeing her again too. Comicbook.com has the quote from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige coming from an Ant-Man press event. In it he was very clear that The Wasp will return and that the upcoming film doesn.t bother just hinting about it. We have plans for her in the future, and we see that not-so-subtly in this film [Ant-Man]. While nothing is exactly clear »
The Wasp was originally expected to appear in The Avengers (she even appeared in some early storyboards), but Marvel decided to give Edgar Wright a little more time to make Ant-Man, stopping both characters from being founding members of that team as they are in the comics. It's a great shame that they've both been absent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe for so long, but that is obviously going to change next month when "Phase 2" comes to a close with Ant-Man. Talking at a press event for Ant-Man yesterday, Kevin Feige had this to say about what's next for The Wasp (Warning: Possible Spoiler Ahead). "We have plans for her in the future, and we see that not-so-subtly in this film [Ant-Man]." That confirms that Hope may end up suiting up by the time the credits roll then, but where could we see her next? Ant-Man 2 hasn't been confirmed, so perhaps »
