His character in The Avengers might refer to himself as a “genius, billionaire,” and in real life, Robert Downey Jr. isn’t that far off from Tony Stark. In a new interview with Variety, his costar and on-screen love interest Gwyneth Paltrow used Downey Jr.’s sizable salary to highlight what she calls the “painful” Hollywood pay gap between men and women. "Look, nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr. is worth," the Goop creator, 43, told Variety (via Page Six) of her longtime friend and costar. [...] »

You talkin' to me?! Tom Hiddleston is known for his celebrity impressions and took on a bold challenge during his appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Friday: He did his best Robert De Niro...to De Niro's face. The Avengers and Thor hottie, who is promoting his latest film Crimson Peak, re-enacted the iconic restaurant scene from the 1995 crime film Heat, reciting both the actor and co-star Al Pacino's lines. "You know, we are sitting here, you and I, like a couple of regular fellas," he says, mimicking Pacino's raspy voice. "You do what you do, and I do what I gotta do. And now that we've been face to face, if I'm there and I »

We’re hearing that Taika Waititi, the New Zealand-born director whose credits include the indie Eagle Vs Shark and last year’s Sundance vampire mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows, is in negotiations with Marvel to direct Thor: Ragnarok, the third pic in Disney/Marvel superhero franchise. Marvel declined comment. Disney has already staked out a November 3, 2017, release date for Thor 3 amid its Marvel catalog. Of course Thor is part of The Avengers so Chris Hemsworth’s… »
Phase Three is ready to kick off next year with Captain America: Civil War and will be followed by a string of titles including Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Spider-Man, The Inhumans and, of course, Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2. With all that in place, you’d think the plot threads had all been worked out, but how much of Phase Three has actually been plotted out?
“In broad strokes,” Kevin Feige told guests at an Avengers: Age of Ultron home entertainment release party. “Sometimes in super-specific things. But, for the most part, in broad strokes that are broad enough and loose enough that if, through the development of four or five movies before we get to the culmination, as you say, we still have room to sway and to move and to go and to surprise ourselves »

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige always get us excited about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU) and he didn’t disappoint at a Q&A session to promote the Us Blu-ray release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron on Tuesday night.
Happily covering a few topics, he was particularly excited about the return of a certain web-slinger:
“Making that agreement… was great, and was really amazing, and on a personal level making these movies, it means a lot because I think we can do great things with Spider-Man.”
“I think Spider-Man can serve great purpose in our universe and that’s where he belongs. What was unique about him in the comics was not that he was the only superhero in the world; it’s that he was a totally different kind of superhero when compared against all the other ones in the Marvel universe at the time.”

Phase Two has come to an end, after Marvel's summer hits Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. Now fans have the massive Phase Three to look forward to, which will span nine movies instead of six, like the previous two phases, and will culminate with the two-part adventure Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II, arriving in theaters in 2018 and 2019, respectively. Producer Kevin Feige revealed during a recent Q&A (via Screen Rant) that the two-part sequel will not only bring an end to Phase Three, but also to a much larger part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. Here's what he had to say when asked to describe Phase Three.
"Broad strokes. Strokes that are broad enough and loose enough that - in the development of the four or five movies before we move into our culmination - allow us room to »

In news that should come as no surprise at all, Marvel Studios has confirmed that Avengers: Infinity War will not mark the end of the McU.
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe will emerge from the ashes of the two-film showdown with Thanos, producer Jeremy Latcham has said that the Avengers will be dramatically changed by the story.
"Who knows exactly what's going to happen yet in that film, but I think this version of that team - and I think we started to hint at it at the end of Age of Ultron, that the team will be evolving.
"And one of the things we love in the comics is that the roster is always changing. »
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, »

While it begins with that, it will end with the two-part Avengers: Infinity War as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes battle it out with Thanos, a story that’s been building since The Mad Titan reared his ugly head in The Avengers in 2012.
Talking at a recent Q&A to promote the DVD and Blu-ray release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Kevin Feige was asked about the build-up to Avengers: Infinity War and revealed that we’ll be seeing the other two Infinity Stones very soon:

Feige says the third film isn't just another entry in a series - rather:
