What's Ahead For The Wasp In The McU, According To Kevin Feige

28 June 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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 »

Kevin Feige Confirms Plans For 'The Wasp' In The Marvel Cinematic Universe's Future

28 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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 »

Marvel's Feige Talks "Spider-Man" Future

28 June 2015 1:39 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "Ant-Man" slated to hit cinemas soon, Marvel's Kevin Feige has taken some time out to talk "Spider-Man" and has shared some further details regarding how their deal with Sony Pictures works.

SuperHeroHype spoke with Feige who only had good things to say about the partnership:

"We're producing that movie for Sony and in partnership with Amy Pascal, so it's been going through the same process of any other Marvel film would, and it's been great. Tom Rothman at Sony has been very supportive in the decisions and obviously the two big ones we announced this week."

Would any of the previous Spider-Man films inspire the upcoming one?

"We're going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think Spider-Man 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that's a lot to live up to."

'Jurassic' Holds Off Challengers

27 June 2015 8:28 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Jurassic World took the #1 weekend box-office spot for the third week in a row with $54.2M off a -49% week-over-week drop, just allowing it to fend off Disney's Inside Out, which made $52.1M on a -42.4% decline. With $32.9M in 3,442 theaters Ted 2, however, didn't really make a run at the spot, making less than even the most pessimistic pundits had placed it. Universal's own estimates had the film at $45M - $50M making Ted 2 the second Seth MacFarlane film to under-perform for them. A Million Ways to Die in the West opened in 3,158 venues on May 30 of last year to a still-surprisingly low $16.8M weekend. Ted 2 has a B+ CinemaScore.Included in the Universal report is another Jurassic World record. The film also crossed the $500M mark domestically, the fastest any film has done that, crossing the milestone in 17 days (6/12/2015 - 6/28/2015). The previous record holder, Marvel's The Avengers, »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

Hot Toys' "Thor" Revealed

26 June 2015 5:37 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek Hot Toys' hammer-swinging "Thor" 1/6 scale hand-painted action figure, designed to the laser-specific image of actor Chris Hemsworth, complete with a light up 'Mjolnir', as seen in Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Age Of Ultron"...

"...'Thor' is based on the thunder god of Norse mythology, created by editor Stan Lee and penciller Jack Kirby, who co-plotted, and scripter Larry Lieber, debuting in Marvel Comics' 'Journey into Mystery' #83 (Aug. 1962).

"A founding member of the superhero group the 'Avengers', Thor often battles his evil adoptive brother 'Loki', a Marvel character adapted from the Norse god of mischief. He is among Marvel's most powerful superheroes. Many recurring characters in his stories are based on Norse Mythology.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Mixed Reactions For Marvel's 'Ant-Man' After First Press Screening Plus New Promos And Pics

26 June 2015 6:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Marvel has a couple of hurdles to overcome with "Ant-Man." There's the ever present shadow of Edgar Wright and what-could-have-been looming over the movie, and there's convincing mainstream audiences that the character and movie is just as exciting as anything "The Avengers" have served up. And there's making a movie that's on-par or better than the source material, which the film's co-star Evangeline Lilly says she wasn't impressed with. "I am still trying to figure out how to get my hands on original ‘Ant-Man’ comics. I’ve been given a couple recent ‘Ant-Man’ comics. No offense Marvel, but they are total crap," she told Collider. "I really want to read the original ones, because I got through two and I was like, dude, you can’t force-feed me another one of these magazines. It was terrible. But Janet’s not in them, and neither is Hank and neither is Scott. »

Ant-Man Movie Will See Evangeline Lilly Kick Butt as The Wasp

25 June 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Marvel Studios recently dropped the embargo on the Ant-Man movie press studio visit pieces a couple days ago during which Marvel chief Kevin Feige was drilled by fellow media members about Evangeline Lilly's role in the upcoming final feature film in Marvel's Cinematic Universe Phase 2.

In the film Lilly plays Hope van Dyne, daughter to Michael Douglas' Hank Pym character and probably Janet van Dyne, though Feige won't outright confirm that. She's seen training Paul Rudd's Scott Lang character as he becomes the new Ant-Man in the trailers, but we never see her in action as The Wasp, the superhero and founding member of The Avengers that Janet van Dyne becomes in the comics.

When pressed for a scoop on how director Peyton Reed utilized Hope van Dyne in the film, Feige was somewhat forthcoming and potentially hinted that she will become The Wasp by the closing credits. »

Captain America: Civil War And Doctor Strange Details Revealed At CineEurope

24 June 2015 4:17 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hollywood Reporter has a piece up about Disney's presentation at CineEurope today, and some very interesting details about Captain America: Civil War were revealed. They unfortunately don't go into great detail, but do reveal that a video was shown featuring co-director Joe Russo explaining that the story of the threequel revolves around "collateral damage" after the actions of The Avengers results in a loss of life. That sounds just like the comics, but minus the New Warriors.  The tension between Captain America and Iron Man (it's not clear whether or not actual footage was shown, but it sounds like it) was also touched upon, with Robert Downey Jr. stating: "The name Civil War implies there are sides." Meanwhile, artist impressions of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange were shown, with Kevin Feige stating that the Sherlock star is perfect for the role because he offers a "complicated emotional structure."

Kevin Feige Says 'Spider-Man' Is "Definitely A Sony Picture," Talks Role Of 'Ant-Man' In Phase 3, More

24 June 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Marvel has been engaged in a tricky balancing act when it comes to "Ant-Man." The marketing materials have been pushing hard the fact that his movie comes from the same folks behind "The Avengers," with promo material even placing Ant-Man alongside Iron Man, Captain America, and more. But, like last year's "Guardians Of The Galaxy," the movie stands mostly outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though Kevin Feige teases that "Ant-Man" has a big role to play. "'Ant-Man' is the movie that closes out Phase Two," he told THR. "Phase One ended with 'Avengers.' So some people thought that Phase Two would end with an 'Avengers' film. But the truth is, there is so much in 'Ant-Man': introducing a new hero, introducing a very important part of technology in the Marvel universe, the Pym particles. Ant-Man getting on the Avengers' radar in this film and even – this is the weirdest part, »

Poll: What Do You Think About Tom Holland Playing Marvel's Spider-man?

24 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Now that Marvel Studios and Sony have cast Peter Parker/Spider-Man (sorry, Miles Morales fans), it's hard to think what the next big anticipated comic book movie casting is. Green Lantern? Captain Marvel? Darkseid? Shazam? Wong?! Regardless, this new Spidey is a pretty big deal, especially as he's set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in next year's Captain America: Civil War. Did you ever expect to see the wall-crawler standing alongside The Avengers on the big screen? It's going to happen, and it will be followed by a trilogy of Spider-Man movies focusing on the character's teenage years in high school. In their quest to find the new Peter Parker, Marvel looked at more than 1500 actors, but it was ultimately Tom Holland who they decided is the right choice. The 19 year old apparently impressed Kevin Feige when he screen tested opposite both Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and »

After a long casting process, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have announced that Tom Holland (The Impossible) as been hired to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the next "Spider-Man" film, which is set to hit theaters on July 28th, 2017. It was also revealed that the reboot will be directed by Jon Watts, the man behind Kevin Bacon's upcoming "Cop Car" film. "Sony, Marvel, Kevin [Feige] and I all knew that for Peter Parker, we had to find a vibrant, talented young actor capable of embodying one of the most well-known characters in the world," said producer and former Sony Pictures head Amy Pascal. "With Tom, we've found the perfect actor to bring Spider-Man's story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe." It's being reported that Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans were brought in to read scenes with Holland.

How Robert Downey Jr. Helped Pick The New Spider-Man

23 June 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The previous big screen incarnations of Spider-Man that we've seen featured him as the only superhero in his world - but that won't be the case when the character officially joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only will the webslinger be throwing down with supervillains, but he will now also have the opportunity to pal around and trade stories with the likes of The Avengers and others. Because of this, it makes a good deal of sense that actor Tom Holland was screentested with both Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans before Marvel Studios signed him to a contract. The Hollywood Reporter has published a report about the details of the new Spider-Man casting, and it's in their story that they mention the A-listers who helped out with the process. According to their sources, producer Amy Pascal and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige first had the Iron Man star come »
