Last Saturday Marvel Studios held their annual Comic-Con International panel in San Diego where we met the casts of Ant-Man and The Avengers: Age of Ultron – two films releasing next summer – and were treated to with brief bits of teaser footage. Before the panel began and as the lights went dark in the 6000-person Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center, attendees went crazy, chanting “Marvel” and cheering when anything popped up on the screens.
Marvel has set some hefty precedents with their Comic-Con presentations over the years and while some of us may be a little disappointed that we didn’t learn more on what additional movies are coming from Disney-Marvel over the next few years (there are 7-8 unannounced titles with release dates) last week, Marvel still delivered few crowd-pleasers for the dedicated attendees who waited ...

In the following video interview with Collider, three actors who portray very human characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe all share their thoughts on Avengers: Age of Ultron, including the status of S.H.I.E.L.D., their take on Joss Whedon's script for the sequel, the atmosphere on set compared to the first movie and how the stakes have been raised for the follow-up. It's a fun interview, especially as it contains a surprise appearance from Robert Downey Jr.! Click on the image below to view the video. »
The superhero movies released by Marvel Studios tend to downplay the more outré elements of their source material. Even the Thor films have mostly held back on the elaborate space-god architecture of the comic book’s mythology, defaulting to a few familiar fantasy-genre elements (evil elves, shining cities, magic-as-plot-shortcut). Not so with Guardians of the Galaxy, a movie which dives deep into a few different deep-space cultures. Perhaps fearful of scaring people off, the movie’s first act drops a lot of exposition grenades about the key points of Galaxy’s Galaxy. Even if you can’t tell the Kree from the Xandarians, »

The video we posted yesterday of all the Easter Eggs in Marvel movies was a nice cerebral look at the groundwork that the studio has laid for their cinematic universe so far. But if you’re looking for a more visceral, adrenaline-fueled onslaught of visuals that will leave you with goosebumps, then this official video the studio just released will do just that. The video takes us through all 10 of the films in Phase 1 & 2 so far, from the first Iron Man to Guardians of the Galaxy. There is even a quick look at Josh Brolin as Thanos in that film, and a quick tease of Ultron, who will appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the final chapter of Phase 2 coming out next May.
Guardians of the Galaxy opened in theaters today, and if you haven’t seen it already (we highly recommend that you do), this is just the thing »

So while you’re here, how do you think Guardians of the Galaxy stacks up against the rest of the Marvel CInematic Universe?

The Avengers sequel closes Marvel's second phase, with Ant-Man kicking off a brand new era for the blockbuster franchise.
Marvel Studios' new promotional video closes by featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy's cosmic adventure and the reunion of the Avengers, before finishing on a shot of the motion-captured Brolin as Thanos.
Thanos is pictured seated on a throne in the middle of space and uttering a menacing warning to the heroes of the Marvel universe.
"I will bathe the star-ways in your blood," Thanos bellows in the teaser, before smiling callously.
Brolin was confirmed at Comic-Con International last week to be playing the super-villain in multiple Marvel Studios films. »
Guardians of the Galaxy is out, we officially have no Marvel releases between here and Avengers: Age of Ultron in May of next year. Yet the Phase movies are legion already: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Iron Man Three, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and now Guardians of the Galaxy.
There all one big thing and it's time to pause and look how far we've come before the Phase 2 theme of the sad consequences of heroism pummels our buddies during the Age of Ultron.
The below video is what was shown during Marvel's panel at San Diego Comic-Con a week ago before the Avengers 2 teaser debuted.
No teaser yet, but we have this look back:
Also fun: try and remember when you saw these movies. That's a head-trip. »
Currently there are two Marvel films in production. One is the highly anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron and the other is Ant-Man. Without a doubt the end credits scene (or one of them) for Age of Ultron will feature something leading into Ant-Man. This would be logical as Ant-Man is a smaller property and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be massive. Offering a preview or tease for Ant-Man in the Avengers sequel would mean that a lot more people will end up seeing it at the cinema. All Marvel films are connected, yet some are clearly stronger box office draws than others ,and by advertising this rather obscure property on the back of the Avengers it would certainly ensure more ticket sales.
As many people will know, in the comic books it was actually Hank Pym (a. »

Last weekend, it wasn't the brawny heroics of Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" that topped the box office, it was the slick action of Scarlett Johansson's "Lucy" that audiences overwhelmingly chose instead. The movie opened to a massive $43 million, and it was the best debut the actress has had in her career to date. Clearly, moviegoers don't care about the gender of who's kicking ass, and yet, when it comes to the Marvel-verse—where ScarJo is a utility player as Black Widow—it's still mostly a "bros only" club. While yes, there are women in prominent roles—Zoe Saldana as Gamora in "Guardians Of The Galaxy"; Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill in "The Avengers"; Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch in the upcoming "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron"—it's the dudes who lead the movies. And so when asked point blank by Comic Book Resources about when a female led Marvel movie might arrive, »

As you’ve probably gleaned from the past week, we here at Collider managed to pull a lot of coverage from San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Following a series of press line interviews with the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron that Steve conducted backstage after the film’s Hall H panel, today we’re bringing you his video interview with Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, and Jeremy Renner, plus an unexpected cameo by Mr. Robert Downey Jr. In the interview, the actors discuss the disbanded nature of S.H.I.E.L.D., their reactions to first reading the Age of Ultron script and seeing normal human conversations (though Renner notes that he didn’t understand anything that was happening in the second half of the script), the atmosphere on set for the sequel versus the first film, and more. Hit the jump to watch the video interview. Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters on May 1, 2015. Samuel L. Jackson, »

We’ve already seen Hulk take on Thor in The Avengers, and we know he’ll be going up against Iron Man and his Hulkbuster armor in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But with the rights to the X-Men firmly at Fox, it’ll be a long time before we see the most famous Hulk battle brought to life on the big-screen. Fans have been hungry for a Hulk Vs. Wolverine showdown for long time. The surprisingly graphic animated version that was released back in 2009 helped curb those hunger pangs, but this great piece by Stjepan Sejic will have you jonesing to see these two Marvel characters go toe-to-toe once again.
We’ve featured numerous pieces of Stjepan’s art over the years, and he always wows us with his color work and composition. Be sure to check out more of his work here. »

The Avengers: Age of Ultron sees Marvel’s superhero team facing the threat of Ultron, a robotic entity created by Tony Stark to police the world – a directive Ultron believes to be only achievable through the extinction of humanity. When Tony’s greatest creation becomes the world’s worst nightmare, how well can the Avengers protect the world – or even their bond as a team?
That’s one question facing us in Avengers 2, but for the real hardcore fans (and/or those generally curious) there is also the question of how much of a threat a robot poses when faced with the likes of an unstoppable green rage monster and/or a god of thunder – both of whom have been known to trounce gods. From what fans saw of the Avengers 2 teaser footage at Comic-Con 2014, James Spader’s Ultron will be a formidable ...

Marvel Studios’ The Avengers was a massive success, and while most fans were left satisfied by the film as a whole, Marvel kicked off another whirlwind of anticipation with the film’s post-credits scene in which the comics supervillain Thanos was first glimpsed. Speculation ran rampant that the cosmic baddie would be the foe in The Avengers 2, but that turned out to be false as Joss Whedon and Co. instead settled on the robot Ultron. And so it appears that Marvel is playing the long game when it comes to Thanos, but his time may finally be drawing near as the character makes his first in-movie appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, opening in theaters this weekend. Josh Brolin was cast in the integral role, performing the facial performance capture for the character after principal photography on Guardians had already wrapped. Though Thanos isn’t on screen for too long in the film, »

Inside you'll find everything from Iron Man to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, teases for this week's release Guardians of the Galaxy, and even a tease for the future with Avengers: Age of Ultron. Check it out below! »
One of the more expectedly thrilling moments of the Marvel presentation at San Diego Comic-Con was a nifty little montage that rundown a whole host of classic moments from the first two phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There were moments from films that you love and remember (like the first "Iron Man" movie) and things that you've already forgotten (like all of "Thor: The Dark World"), but taken together, it was a profoundly impressive -- a look back at all that was, right before a look forward at what will be (namely, "Avengers: Age of Ultron" footage).
Well, thanks to a tweet from the Hulk himself, Mark Ruffalo, who said that he was "Proud to be a part of the Marvel universe," you can now watch the montage for yourself. In fact -- it's right here, just below this text! And it's really, really cool (especially when it expands »

In a relatively short amount of time, Kevin Feige has gone from being the assistant to a prolific producer to running one of the biggest and most respected studios in Hollywood. While attending the University of Southern California, he interned for producer Lauren Shuler Donner, becoming her assistant upon graduation. While the first X-Men was in production, Lauren Shuler Donner made him a co-producer, due to his incredible wealth of Marvel knowledge. Seven years later, he was named President of Marvel Studios, paving the way for the immensely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The McU gets a new addition this week in Guardians of the Galaxy, a cosmic romp that expands Marvel's reach to the outer edges of the universe. While fans have been taken to other worlds such as Asgard in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy takes fans on a truly cosmic, futuristic adventure with »
Joss Whedon has been saying that Thanos will appear in "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron," before becoming the main villain in "Avengers 3." We already know that Thanos will be played by Josh Brolin and that he's part of "Guardians of the Galaxy." But now comes word from Marvel head Kevin Feige that Thanos will not appear in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." "[Thanos is] not a part of 'Avengers 2,'" he explained. "I think Thanos does what he wants, and shows up where he wants to, and I'm not going to tell him otherwise. By the way, we're still making 'Avengers 2,' so nothing's definitive one way or the other, actually." It sounds like there's no plan for Thanos to get more than a potential cameo. Stay tuned. »
