Avengers: Infinity War is set to bring down the curtain on some members of the current Avengers roster, it seems...
We talk about the ending of Avengers: Age Of Ultron in this piece.
Marvel began the process of shuffling its pack of incumbent screen Avengers at the end of the summer's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. But it seems that a more pronounced changing of the guard is on the way.
Chatting at a Q&A to promote the release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron on disc, Marvel Studios executive Jeremy Latcham confirmed that the two part Avengers: Infinity War - the films that end phase three of the Marvel cinematic universe - is going to shepherd in some changes.
"I think it definitely is an end to some version of the team that we’ve come to know as The Avengers. Who knows exactly what is going to happen yet in that film, »
This story contains a spoiler for the ending of Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige is the latest to be doing promotional work the release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron on disc in the Us. And he's been teasing some of the firm's upcoming films, and when we're going to be hearing more about them.
Affirming that Captain America: Civil War - for all of the talk about it effectively being Avengers 2.5 - "is very much Cap's story... it's very much a sequel to The Winter Soldier", Feige did also note that Tony Stark is "still funding the whole thing", despite walking away from The Avengers at the end of Age Of Ultron.
Looking ahead, though, Feige turned his attention to when we're going to find out more about some of the Phase 3 movies that Marvel has planned. »
We’re still a long ways off from the two-part Avengers: Infinity War movie, and very little is really known about it at this point. While Thanos is obviously going to be the main villain, as he looks to bring together the Infinity Stones, there’s still a lot of questions left unanswered.
Are we going to see The Avengers team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy? And how will heroes like Spider-Man and Daredevil factor into the story? All that remains to be seen, but we do now know where directors Joe and Anthony Russo are turning to for inspiration.

Over the past seven years, Marvel fans have become accustomed to sticking around as the entire credit sequence rolls, for a sneak peek at either an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe project, or sometimes just a fun bonus scene. Many might not even know what shawarma is had it not been for the memorable end credits scene in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, but sitting through the credits also gives one a sense of just how many people need to come together on movies of this sort of magnitude. Many of these men and women aren't household names like the actors who play Earth's Mightiest Heroes, but they are just as vital to the success of the film as the actors or writer-director Joss Whedon. Before Avengers: Age of Ultron debuts on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD, I recently had a chance to speak with one of these unsung crew members, stunt coordinator Greg Powell, »

Captain America: Civil War is one of the most highly anticipated superhero movies of 2016, though there are a lot of unanswered questions about what we should expect from Marvel Studios’ adaptation of Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s beloved event series. During an appearance at the Salt Lake Comic-Con this weekend, Chris Evans shed some light on that, explaining why Captain America and Iron Man come to blows in the movie.
As it turns out, it all comes down to the Accords (essentially the McU version 0f the Superhuman Registration Act), which will see the government given the ability to control the actions of The Avengers and hold them accountable for what they do while attempting to protect the world.
“Tony actually thinks we should be signing these accords and reporting to somebody and Cap, who’s always been a company man and has always been a soldier, actually doesn’t trust anymore. »

Chris Evans had a panel dedicated just to him at the Salt Lake Comic Con today, and he of course dropped plenty of interesting new details about what we should expect in Captain America: Civil War. For starters, the actor revealed that the Accords are what divide The Avengers, with Cap unwilling to allow the government to control the team's actions and hold them accountable for their actions. "Tony actually thinks we should be signing these accords and reporting to somebody and Cap, who's always been a company man and has always been a soldier, actually doesn't trust anymore. Given what happened in Cap 2, I think he kind of feels the safest hands are his own," Evans explained to fans in attendance (via The Salt Lake Tribune). "And these are understandable concerns, but this is tough, because even reading the script, you think I think I agree with Tony in »
Though Hugh Jackman and others have outright denied it, many fans still believe Wolverine 3 is going to be based on the classic Marvel comic story 'Old Man Logan', written by Mark Millar. One of the detracting factors from this becoming a reality is the fact that the comic book featured characters owned by Disney and Marvel Studios. Ones they're probably not willing to share. Hawkeye, who is a key player in Marvel's The Avengers, is also the secondary character in 'Old Man Logan'. Other characters include She-Hulk, King Pin, Red Skull and Black Bolt, just to name a few. Well, Mark Millar doesn't think that matters. In fact, he believes the story is strong enough to stand on its own without the help of these other Marvel owned characters.
Over the summer, Hugh Jackman asked fans to send him ideas for Wolverine 3. At the top of everyone's wish list was »

An impossible, but true story, the new film from Robert Zemeckis, The Walk is a live-action, PG-rated entertainment for all audiences, ages 8 to 80. A love letter to the World Trade Center, the film is a 3D and IMAX visual experience, unlike anything audiences have seen.
On August 7, 1974 – the day before Richard Nixon announced he would be resigning from office – Philippe Petit, a French aerialist, surprised the city of New York with a high-wire walk between the towers of the almost-completed and partially occupied World Trade Center. Passersby without a moment to spare stopped in their tracks and looked up. They saw the impossible: a man dancing high in the sky, seemingly in the thin air.
Now, forty years later, Zemeckis – one of cinema’s most accomplished filmmakers at integrating technology in the service of emotional storytelling – is putting moviegoers in Petit’s shoes. The Walk, an epic, big-screen cinematic spectacle, »
