We know that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has planned far into the future when it comes to what’s next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and while we also know that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is on the way, it remains to be seen which other films will delve into the cosmic side of this world of superheroes.
That being said, it’s starting to look like these types of adventures are going to become a priority for the studio. When you bear in mind that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn will likely be taking on an advisory role with Marvel similar to the one Joss Whedon had after Avengers: Age of Ultron, the decision to head further into the ‘Cosmic Universe,’ as Feige puts it here, does make a lot of sense.
“I think it’s a little early to know what it’s going to look like. »

Another pilot season is dwindling down, which means that La industry-ites are getting ready to head back east to schmooze with Madison Avenue for the weeklong television marathon that is Upfronts.
While just as of Monday, more than 96% of the voting members of the Writers Guild of America authorized a strike against production companies, Upfronts plans are still intact, though there are fewer agency events, (ICM is not having its annual dinner on the west side) and some agency parties could be canceled at the last minute, based on the potential WGA strike.
One major network will have a major gap in its presentation: CBS prez Glenn Geller won’t be on the stage, after making his debut last year at Carnegie Hall, as the executive recently announced a medical leave due to a mild heart attack. However, everything else is going as planned, such as Jimmy Kimmel’s critically praised roast at ABC’s Upfront presentation »

A little less than three years after Guardians of the Galaxy become an out-of-this-worldwide breakout hit, the sequel begins its overseas rollout today. Debuting in the late-April sweet spot that has seen Disney release such Marvel tentpoles as Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Iron Man 3, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 rockets into 37 material markets through Friday, repping 58% of its international box office footprint. Domestic and the rest of the… »
Yesterday, during an interview on the red carpet for the UK premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, actress Zoe Saldana seemingly revealed the mysterious title for the currently untitled Avengers sequel, which was previously known as Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. It has long been confirmed that all of the Guardians will return in Infinity War. The actress teased that the Guardians wrapped their part in Infinity War, adding that they'll be back for "Infinity Gauntlet" later this year. While it certainly did seem like the actress let the secretive title slip, her Guardians 2 director confirmed that actually isn't the case.
After the premiere, during the press junket, Yahoo! Movies UK caught up with Guardians 2 director James Gunn, who also serves as an executive producer on the Infinity War movies. The director/producer didn't hear that Zoe Saldana seemingly let the title slip on the red carpet, and when asked about the Infinity Gauntlet title, »
Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 is funny, wildly entertaining and something of a triumph. Here's our review...
Three years ago, Guardians Of The Galaxy was a D-list Marvel property handed to a cult director whose last two films failed to make back their budgets at the box office. This week, the sequel lands as Marvel’s most-anticipated follow-up since Avengers: Age Of Ultron. How times change.
It’s no surprise, then, that writer and director James Gunn has brought plenty of swagger with him the second time around, and it’s right on display the very moment the movie begins. From the soundtrack choices to the production design to the script, there’s barely a single moment where this film isn’t delighting your senses. We won’t make you wait for the one-line verdict: if you loved the first one, you’re going to love this one too. »
Unlike last year’s Marvel star and director pairing at Tribeca Talks, which resulted in Joss Whedon expressing his regrets to Mark Ruffalo for dissing the comic-book movie label and its execution of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Scarlett Johansson brought a legal notepad of smart industry questions about the indie and major studio machines to her Iron Man 2 and Jungle Book director Jon Favreau. Without even uttering the words Ghost in the Shell, her latest career low at the B.O… »
Marvel Studios has a reputation of wrestling too much creative control out of the hands of its directors. Joss Whedon didn't come back for Avengers: Infinity War because of his creative differences with Marvel over Avengers: Age of Ultron and Patty Jenkins was one of the directors to abandon a Marvel project completely when she left Thor: The Dark World.
Guardians of the Galaxy was the weirdest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in 2014, and since then projects have been getting more unique and bold like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange. Nancy Tapia attended a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 press junket for Lrm, where the director of the film, James Gunn, was asked if he had more freedom for the even weirder sequel:
"The truth is, the great thing about working with, especially with Kevin [Feige], all of Marvel, but especially Kevin who I have an especially close bond with »

Fans have certainly responded to the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer, which set a new Disney record with 136 million views in the first 24 hours. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are back as the Asgardian brothers Thor and Loki, but this new adventure introduces a number of new characters, including Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster. A month before the trailer debuted, fans got their first look at The Grandmaster, who has a much different look in the movie than he does in the comics, where his skin is entirely blue. Director Taika Waititi revealed that there is a perfectly good explanation for this, which is also quite hilarious.
Earlier this week, a number of journalists were invited to the Marvel facility in Burbank for a special event, and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi was on hand to discuss his Marvel Phase Three adventure, which arrives in theaters November 3. IGN spoke with Taika Waititi during the event, »
One of the surprise additions to the Dceu was Batgirl, and even more of a surprise was the director who will be at the helm. None other than the director for Marvel's film Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon. With that being said USA Today caught up with the director at the World Premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where he talked about what he is looking for in casting Barbara Gordon.
"What I'm looking for in a Batgirl is probably somebody new," Whedon told them on the red carpet. "Somebody who is willing to go the distance. It is going to be hard. I want somebody who's going to get in the trenches with me."
"I know what she looks like in the comic books," Whedon said. "We'll deviate if the right person is different. We haven't even begun the conversation, but it's about the spirit she exudes, »

Earlier this week, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn took to Facebook to announce that he would be on board for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which will put a cap on the trilogy of films with a nice little bow. But what does this mean for the character arcs for our Guardians?
“I think really that the three movies work together as a whole, they’re going to tell one story,” Gunn told EW. “This is the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and we’re going to get to know the characters even better in the same way we got to know them much better in this film than the first one. I wouldn’t have said yes if I didn’t have a fairly clear idea of where we were going and what we were going to do. I’m »

Last night in the Us saw the World Premiere of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 and many members of the cast and crew were on the red carpet (see some of the photos from the event here), as well some old Marvel alumni including The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon who was there to show his support.
While he spoke about his continued affection for all things Marvel, Variety asked his about his upcoming move to the Dceu with his forthcoming Batgirl film, which Whedon is currently in the process of writing. A stand-alone film around the character, it will feed into the bigger universe set up at Warner Bros which includes Justice League and Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
But while he is knee-deep in writing mode, Whedon has said that he hasn’t yet got any idea on who he »

Last month, production on Avengers: Infinity War had shifted to Edinburgh, Scotland, with new set photos revealing Paul Bettany's Vision. He was seen walking down a Scottish street late at night. Another video surfaced just a day later, which showed Vision using his special powers to fly away after a number of attackers from The Black Order had knocked him to the ground. No further details were given. Today, we have even more set photos, and they uncover a few rather huge Spoilers for Vision and another popular character from the Avengers movies. If you're trying to avoid huge spoilers for Infinity War, then you'll want to stop reading right now.
Shortly after the Vision set photos emerged, we learned that Elizabeth Olsen had arrived in Scotland to film scenes in the Old Town area of Edinburgh, along with a number Marvel stars such as Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, »
Joss Whedon turned up at the world premiere of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 last night where he caught up with the world’s press. The Avengers and Avengers: Age Of Ultron director will slip across to DC for his next big superhero film, Batgirl. More on the Joss Whedon Batgirl news below.
Of course, the press had a lot to ask Whedon about his next film, which is currently in the writing stage, and who may play the title character. Here’s what he had to say to to Variety.
“I have so many things to say about her, I’m very excited to see a girl in the cowl. [Casting wise] I don’t have my eye on anybody. »

“I think that the third movie is going to continue this trilogy, the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy,” said Gunn, who announced earlier this week that he would be returning to write and direct the third film. “It’s going to do it in a big way, and we’re going to come to an epic conclusion of who the Guardians are and why they were brought together, and I can’t wait to tell that story to the people.”

Gunn also teased that the third film will be an ending of sorts for Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), and his gang of misfit heroes.
“It will be the final, in this »

Word on the street is this is a possible dream sequence, after all Vision is human in the photos and doesn’t have anything on him that could CGI’d in post. The other possibility is that once Thanos removes the Mind Gem from Vision, the character will »

Yesterday Marvel Studios held an open house, inviting outlets to get a special peek at several of its upcoming Phase Three offerings. We’ve already had details on Captain Marvel’s directors, promo art from Thor: Ragnarok, and a reveal from Ragnarok director Taika Waititi that he’s playing Korg, and now thanks to The Hollywood Reporter we’ve got a description of some Black Panther footage that was shown, along with concept art for Ant-Man and the Wasp.
“Journalists were treated to footage of a coronation scene for T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), who appears bare-chested and holding ceremonial weapons to take on the monarch role left empty following his father’s death in Captain America: Civil War,” states THR’s report. “In another scene, Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) stealthily takes down a group of gun-toting bad guys, and in a third, Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) rolls into »

After releasing some new images of Taron Egerton and Channing Tatum, 20th Century Fox released a teaser for Kingsman: The Golden Circle. It’s only 15 seconds though, so blink and you’ll miss it! There’s also an official synopsis, which you can read here along with the trailer.
It took a few people by surprise when it was announced that former The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon was set to helm a Batgirl movie for DC, but someone who thinks it’s a great idea is Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige. “He did call a couple months ago to tell me about it,” Feige said. “He didn’t have to call but I appreciated that he did. I think a Joss Whedon Batgirl would be awesome.” Read more here.

A couple weeks back, DC fans were hit with a bombshell when it was reported that Joss Whedon would be directing a Batgirl movie. Not only was this a case of material being a good match for the filmmaker, but it was a huge case of an influential filmmaker crossing streams. Not only did Joss Whedon helm two Avengers films for Marvel Studios, but he had also worked hard during the duration of their Phase 2 in various features.
In a sense, Joss Whedon was the force that was helping to shepherd this universe, along with Kevin Feige, to where it ended up at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. To the eyes of fans, it’s almost scene as a filmmaker turning on a former ally.
So what does Marvel Studios think of all this? Speaking with THR, »
