Marvel always has a few surprises up its sleeve during their annual Comic-Con appearance, and this year, they capped off their panel by officially announcing that Brie Larson is playing Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel. Captain Marvel doesn't hit theaters until March 8, 2019, but directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo hinted this summer that she could make her McU debut in Avengers: Infinity War, which still hasn't been confirmed yet. While promoting Doctor Strange, Kevin Feige offered some new details about this superhero, who will apparently be the most powerful in the McU.
During an interview earlier this month, Kevin Feige made it clear that this Captain Marvel movie will be an origin story, although he wouldn't divulge any plot details. During an new interview with Vulture, he teased that Captain Marvel will be the strongest characer the McU has ever seen, but she'll also be quite flawed. Here's »

We all know that the cast of Avengers: Infinity War is going to be packed with as many characters from the McU as Marvel can fit into the movie, including of course the returning members of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes alongside Thanos, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel.
Well, it looks like we can now add a couple of supporting players from the Cinematic Universe, with Cobie Smulders seemingly confirming to Jimmy Kimmel that she’ll be back as Maria Hill, and Benedict Wong telling Comic Book that he will also be reprising his Doctor Strange role as Wong.

The Sherlock star joins the superhero scene as a psychedelic ‘master of black magic’, able to warp time and space. But will Marvel’s trippy gamble pay off?
“You know, every time I dig a little bit deeper into science with my pea-sized brain, I hit a wall,” says Benedict Cumberbatch, musing on life’s big questions. He is sporting a manicured goatee and has an amulet strapped to his chest. “I have a sense of wonder at what is beyond our understanding,” he goes on. “There is wonder in logic, and, whether on the macro or micro scale, it just gets bizarre, extraordinary and unfathomable. And we have only five senses to understand and appreciate it, whether it’s theoretical physics or microbiology or circadian rhythms. It’s incredible.”

Marvel is continuing their habit of allowing critics and reporters to post their initial thoughts on social media shortly after the first screenings of one of their movies has completed. Now that the first screening of Marvel’s Doctor Strange has been shown, the tweets are coming. So far, the reaction from the critics seems to be mostly positive. Here are some of the tweets about the film’s advance showing.
Eric Eisenberg of Cinemablend writes…
* Prepare to dig #DoctorStrange! Not the strongest script, but it legitimately adds new colors to the McU, and the action is beautiful & crazy
Erik Davis from Fandango posted….
*The action sequences in #DoctorStrange are unlike anything Marvel's done. There are so ferociously loopy, frenetic & nerdy, I adore them.
William Bibbiani from Crave Online tweeted these thoughts…
* I wouldn't put #DoctorStrange in Marvel's top five but it's an entertaining movie with big ideas, gorgeous CGI and unique action sequences. »

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch would be reprising his role as the Sorcerer Supreme in Avengers: Infinity War, something that was long thought to be the case. Now, ComicBook.com has confirmed that his Doctor Strange co-star, Benedict Wong, will join him.
Speaking to the outlet in a recent interview, the actor said the following: “I’m thrilled I’m going to be in Infinity War. I’m looking forward to it. I’ll tell you that one first.” He wouldn’t reveal how large of a part he’ll have, but given the massive amount of characters set to feature in the film, we don’t imagine it will be a very big role.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is starting to make the press rounds for Doctor Strange, which hits theaters exactly two weeks from today on November 4. Last week, the studio president and producer was in Hong Kong for a press conference for this Marvel Phase 3 adventure, where he confirmed that one of that movie's supporting characters will in fact return in Avengers: Infinity War. The character in question is none other than Benedict Wong's Wong, who is a "key character" moving forward. Here's what the producer had to say at the press conference below.
"It was always our intention to make Wong a very noble character and a very big part of the movie from the beginning. That was the idea for the character. Now with more trailers out, you'll see that (Benedict Wong) is amazing (in Doctor Strange). He also is continuing forward into the Avengers movies as well. »
In the comic books, Doctor Strange often has Wong by his side, and the same looks set to be the case when the Sorcerer Supreme appears in Avengers: Infinity War a couple of years from now. Talking to ComicBook.com recently, Benedict Wong had this to say about reprising the role of Strange's mentor. "I'm thrilled I'm going to be in Infinity War. I'm looking forward to, I'll tell you that one first." So, this is yet another character we can now add to the ever growing list of heroes who will be joining the fight against Thanos. Wong helping Strange out makes a lot of sense, though how significant his role will end up being obviously remains to be seen. It's probably just a cameo, but you have to believe that there's a chance we'll also see The Ancient One and Mordo led a hand against the Mad Titan. »

“Doctor Strange’s” whitewashing controversy continues to be a main point of discussion. Diversity and the casting of the Ancient One were once again the hot topics at Thursday night’s world premiere held at the Tcl Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
The film’s director, Scott Derrickson, told Variety that he thinks “diversity is the responsibility of the directors and producers” and once again explained why Tilda Swinton’s was the perfect Ancient One.
“In this case, the stereotype of [the Ancient One] had to be undone. I wanted it to be a woman, a middle-aged woman. Every iteration of that script played by an Asian woman felt like a ‘Dragon Lady,” he said. “I’m very sensitive to the history of ‘Dragon Lady’ representation and Anna May Wong films. I moved away from that. Who’s the magical, mystical, woman with secrets that could work in this role? I thought Tilda Swinton. »

Mads Mikkelsen has made a career out of taking monsters—Bond villains, refined cannibals, bizarro chicken men—and presenting them sympathetically. So it’s not surprising that the actor asserted that his Doctor Strange character, Kaecilius, is less a villain, and more a man who opposes the hero’s point of view, at a recent press conference for the movie, which hits theaters on November 4.
“I always think of all characters as a hero,” Mikkelsen told Screen Rant, adding that he sees Kaecilius—who wants to open our world to other, potentially hostile dimensions— as a true believer in his ideals. “We tried to make him a man who knows what he’s talking about, a little bit like a demigod, Jonestown, or whatever it’s called, somebody who believes, utterly in what he says,” Mikkelsen said.

Tom Cruise’s “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” is heading for a narrow victory over “Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween” with about $22 million at the domestic box office, early estimates showed Friday.
Paramount’s “Never Go Back” was locked in a heated battle with Lionsgate’s “Madea Halloween” for opening day supremacy with Friday grosses pointing to $8 million to $9 million for each, with weekend estimates going as high as $24 million for both. But Lionsgate, however, maintained Friday afternoon that the ninth Madea movie was heading for a finish in the $15 million range.
It will likely be the third straight weekend that the box office winner has opened in that vicinity. Ben Affleck’s “The Accountant” took in $24.7 million in its launch on Oct. 16-18 and Emily Blunt’s “The Girl on the Train” grossed $24.5 million on its opening weekend on Oct. 9-11.

Tilda Swinton was at the center of arguably Marvel Studio’s biggest controversy to date when it was revealed that she had been cast as The Ancient One in the upcoming Doctor Strange. Traditionally depicted as a Tibetan man in the comics, the film decided to cast a white British woman instead and then—most confusingly of all—basically just dress her as a Tibetan man anyway. (Screenwriter C. Robert Cargill offered some rather muddled explanations as to the reasoning behind the casting decision.) Anyway, Swinton doesn’t seem to have let the controversy get to her. In fact, she’s pushing for an Ancient One solo film.
At least that’s what she told ScreenCrush’s Matt Singer at the Hollywood premiere of the movie. “I’m pretty confidently dropping hints in Kevin Feige’s ear about a prequel,” she explained. “I’m constantly harassing him about that. I »

Come 2018, Avengers: Infinity War will descend into theaters bringing with it one of, if not the biggest ensembles in the history of Marvel Studios. Director Joe and Anthony Russo are naturally keeping the specifics under wraps for the time being, but one question the refuses to relent is whether The Defenders will ever crop up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
If the small-screen heroes were to make the jump to the big screen, Infinity War seems like the best point of entry, and the Russo brothers have even entertained the prospect in the past. However that may be, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige remains wary of a potential crossover event. He’s not the only one, either, after Luke Cage himself, Mike Colter, expressed his own doubts some weeks ago.

While many fans had hoped to see The Defenders joining forces with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for Avengers: Infinity War, it is looking increasingly unlikely that Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will be absent from the big showdown with Thanos.
Speaking to Collider during a Doctor Strange press junket, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige was asked for his thoughts on the Netflix shows, and whether he could ever see a time where The Defenders would join the big screen side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I think it’s extremely impressive what Netflix has done and it will be the same answer I always give, which is, ‘It all depends on timing,'” said Feige. “It all depends on how to do it because I don’t think what anybody wants to do is have such important characters show up for one second.
