Marvel’s Kevin Feige hints at changes for Avengers movies

11 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Don Kaye Oct 18, 2017

The era of using Avengers sequels to end each Marvel ‘phase’ may be over soon.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has suggested in recent months that once the current string of Marvel movies - a.k.a. Phase 3 - concludes, future Marvel releases might not be grouped into those unofficial 'phases' anymore. Each section of the studio’s production cycle so far has ended with an Avengers movie: Phase 1 ended with The Avengers in 2012, while Phase 2 was capped by Avengers: Age Of Ultron (and, to a lesser extent, Ant-Man) in 2015.

Phase 3 will follow suit, climaxing with the untitled fourth Avengers film in 2019. That movie and next year’s Avengers: Infinity War are all but certain to radically transform not just the make-up of the Avengers themselves but the Marvel Cinematic Universe overall. With that in mind, is it possible that doing away with the McU’s 'phases' »

5 Reasons why you need to see Spider-Man: Homecoming (again)5 Reasons why you need to see Spider-Man: Homecoming (again)Adriana Floridia10/17/2017 10:11:00 Am

We never knew how badly we needed a new Spider-Man until we saw Spider-Man: Homecoming.

One of the most beloved superheroes in existence, there's a reason why Spidey keeps making it back to the big screen. Now available at the Cineplex Store, this time, Peter officially joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe (not including his scene-stealing appearance in Captain America: Civil War last year), and it's this union of Spider-Man with the rest of The Avengers (well, really just his mentor Iron Man) that sets Spider-Man: Homecoming apart from the past iterations of this character.

We loved Spider-Man: Homecoming so much that we're giving you 5 reasons why you need to see the film for the first or second time (because we'll be heading back to relive the fun »

Avengers 4 Casting Call Might Hint At A Major Character Death

15 October 2017 12:21 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As evidenced by the steady stream of set photos, Atlanta is still playing host to Avengers 4, Marvel’s unnamed sequel currently on course for a release in 2019.

Nipping at the heels of Infinity War, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have now switched gears to orchestrate the second, conclusive chapter in their two-part epic, which presumably pits Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against Thanos for the final time in May of 2019.

Most of the McU characters are expected to feature in some shape or form, but with Infinity War promising to bring about the death of a hero or two, fans have been furiously speculating as to who’s going to make it out alive and who won’t. Of course, there’s been no firm evidence pointing to which character may be the one to bite the dust just yet, but a new casting call for Avengers 4 does seem to indicate »

Ben Affleck Compares Joss Whedon's Justice League to The Avengers

14 October 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The latest and final trailer for Justice League was released last week and while it showed off Clark Kent in a dream sequence, it didn't really reveal much else in terms of the overall plot. However, it did show off a new look that hasn't been seen in any promotional material up until this point and that falls squarely on the shoulders of Joss Whedon. As talked about numerous times before, Whedon came in to take over the project from Zack Snyder, leaving many fans to question what exactly has gone on over the last several months of reshoots and edits. Ben Affleck is the latest cast member to speak publicly about what Joss Whedon brought to the table.

It was just revealed that Zack Snyder's name will be the only name shown under director for the PG-13-rated Justice League, while Joss Whedon is credited as the co-writer along with Chris Terrio. »

Ben Affleck on what Joss Whedon has brought to Justice League

14 October 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Joss Whedon is missing out on a director’s credit on Justice League, it seems very clear that The Avengers helmer has had a major influence on Justice League after stepping in as a replacement for Zack Snyder, and during an interview with SFX Magazine, Batman star Ben Affleck has been chatting about what Whedon brought to the DC superhero blockbuster.

Joss just brought to the movie what good directors bring, which is good taste,” said Affleck. “A sense of what’s gonna work in the story and what isn’t. An instinct for realism and for finding the humanity in the characters and the humanity in the conflict, then making it accessible and relevant. I think that’s one of the things he did so well with Avengers, frankly. He really defined the tone, and it felt like a lot of the movies after that sort of fell »

Comics on Film: Is the Hulk Finally Getting More Love From the McU?

13 October 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Just about a year ago, Marvel's iconic green behemoth, the Hulk, was the subject of a Comics on Film column that lamented the somewhat...tempered treatment the character has received in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the release of 2008's The Incredible Hulk. At the time, we were a little mystified at the idea that one of the pillars of the Avengers wasn't being groomed for a new solo cinematic adventure, especially considering how many fans and critics perceived Mark Ruffalo's first performance in the role in 2012's The Avengers to be that massively successful movie's breakout element. While we don't really know of any official change in the overall stature of Bruce Banner at Marvel Studios, fans of the Hulk at least have more of a...

Marvel’s Kevin Feige on bringing a “satisfying and unexpected” conclusion to Phase Three, and an official McU timeline

13 October 2017 12:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios’ head honcho Kevin Feige is out doing the press rounds for Marvel’s latest superhero blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok, and speaking to Uproxx, the producer has been talking about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, stating that while Phase Four will bring about a new beginning, the studio’s main focus remains on Phase Three and delivering a “satisfying” and “unexpected” conclusion to the first ten years of the McU.

“All I’ll say is the films we are working on now – which take us through to the Avengers Untitled in May of 19 – that’s really all we are focusing on,” said Feige. “And we are focusing on bringing, by that point, an unprecedented, 22-movie, continuous shared fictional narrative to a conclusion in a satisfying way. And where we go beyond that? Of course we will go places beyond that. And, of course, we have ideas of where we go beyond that. »

Kevin Feige Suggests There’ll Be No Phase 4 Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

13 October 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While promoting Thor: Ragnarok this week, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige was asked by Uproxx what the future holds for the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the two upcoming Avengers movies conclude the ongoing plot threads that have been built up ever since Iron Man. And judging by his answer, it would seem that there may not be an McU for much longer.

Previously, we’ve heard that the franchise would plow ahead fairly unchanged, with Phase 3 giving way to Phase 4 and so on. However, this reply from Feige hints that there could be a much bigger shift on the horizon, one that would signal the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it.

“Well, all I’ll say is the films we are working on now, which take us through to the Avengers Untitled in May of 19, that’s really all we are focusing on. And we are focusing on bringing, »

New Thor: Ragnarok TV Spot Answers Marvel's Biggest Question

13 October 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The marketing for Thor: Ragnarok has officially kicked into high-gear. The third and final movie released of the year from Marvel Studios also looks like it has the potential to be the best, which is a bold statement considering that both Guardians of the Galaxy Vo. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming were released this year as well. Now, a brand new TV spot for Thor: Ragnarok has been released by Marvel that provides us with some awesome new footage, as well as revealing who the strongest member of The Avengers is, answering one of Marvel's biggest questions once and for all.

As we've seen in previous trailers and TV spots for Thor: Ragnarok, this movie is going to be a whole lot different than anything we've seen from the solo Thor movies previously. For one, it's going to be a lot funnier. Case in point, this TV spot sees the God of Thunder »

Behind The Scenes Photos From The Avengers That Every Fan Should See

12 October 2017 8:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Often, what you see on a screen when it comes to Hollywood blockbusters is not at all what the initial footage looked like. Whether it’s CGI, practical effects, models, costumes, make-up or any of the other numerous tactics employed to create movie magic, the finished product is almost always enhanced in some manner, especially when it comes to big budget films.

Thankfully, nearly every major blockbuster has its production recorded and documented by photographers and over the years, some truly incredible, exciting and often hilarious behind the scenes photos have made their way online. And so, on that note, join us today as we settle into another edition of our weekly column, where we’ll be exploring Joss Whedon’s The Avengers.

These days, the aforementioned director is almost treated as though he’s a real life superhero, but after what he did with this film, that treatment is somewhat justified. »

R'as al Ghul hunts for a destiny-fulfilling knife in Gotham season four's best episode yet...

4.4 The Demon's Head

The Demon's Head is an example of what Gotham is capable of when it's firing on all cylinders. Tonight's episode, written by series star Ben McKenzie, has a tightness often missing from Gotham and from network TV in general.

Paired with the kind of impeccable production values we've come to expect from this show and a killer performance from Alexander Siddig as R'as al Ghul, and you easily have the best episode of the season and one of the best episodes of Gotham ever, full stop.

Chris Hemsworth Jokes About Playing The Riddler In The Dceu

12 October 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While on the sofa of The Jimmy Kimmel Show earlier this week, Thor: Ragnarok star Chris Hemsworth made a joke that’s sure to get comic book movie fans everywhere salivating: he quipped that he was interested in joining the DC Extended Universe. Specifically, to play Batman’s enemy, Edward Nygma/The Riddler.

When the talk show host complimented him on his green velvet jacket, Hemsworth said it was a homage to his Ragnarok teammates Loki and Hulk, before switching to a reference to the famed DC villain. “I have a Riddler audition after this, so…” he quipped.

Kimmel then inquired more seriously about whether it was even possible for a Marvel actor such as Hemsworth to consider also working in the Dceu. The Australian star remained non-committal on the subject, joking that it depended on how much he got paid.

Kevin Feige Says Official, Published Marvel Timeline In The Works

12 October 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

I actually didn’t know it was a thing, but apparently there is some debate among fans about the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline thanks to “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” The film opens with the suggestion that it takes place eight years after the events of “The Avengers” — in 2020 — which seemingly mucks up the well-orchestrated threads connecting each film. However, Marvel doesn’t do anything without deep thought, and fans will soon get the answers to any timeline queries cleared up.

Marvel To Release An Official McU Timeline To Answer All Your Questions

11 October 2017 9:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a franchise as massive and sprawling as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which only gets bigger and bigger with each passing year, things are kept awfully neat and tidy. Very rarely are there plot holes or continuity issues and everything fits together rather well. Or at least, it did, until Spider-Man: Homecoming swung into theatres back in July and threw everyone for a bit of a loop.

If you recall, the film opens with a prologue of sorts, detailing the aftermath of the events of The Avengers, with Adrian Toomes doing some clean up with his crew. Shortly after, however, we jump ahead to what a title card explains is eight years later. Now, as Joss Whedon’s aforementioned film is set in 2012, then that’d mean that Homecoming occurs in 2020, which wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense, for a number of reasons.

Is 'Thor: Ragnarok' a Launching Pad for a Hulk Trilogy in Disguise?

11 October 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Before Mark Ruffalo took on the role of brilliant scientist Bruce Banner, also known as Hulk and The Incredible Hulk, the Marvel character played a leading role in two superhero movies. Ruffalo redefined the character, first battling with Thor in The Avengers and then fighting with Iron Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron before ultimately siding with the heroes to help them defeat their mighty foes. Although he was absent from Captain America: Civil War, he will play a very prominent role in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. Still, fans have cried out for a solo adventure and for good reason. As our own Chris Clow noted: "The Hulk is one of Marvel's absolute best characters for a lot of great reasons, and if he can make the team-up films all the more engaging, it's high time...

Zak Penn Says New ‘The Matrix’ Movie Is Happening But Also Not Happening

10 October 2017 11:32 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this year, Warner Bros. took the red pill, plugged in, and decided to reboot “The Matrix” franchise. The move has hardly a surprise. The studio has been trying to figure out how to get that mega-property back out into the world for years, and had even considered a TV series at one point. As it stands, Zak Penn (“The Avengers,” “Ready Player One”) is writing the movie, but don’t call it a reboot.
