It is tempting to wonder quite how the bigwigs at Disney must have reacted when the ending of Avengers: Infinity War was first revealed to them. “So let me get this straight,” they might have said, visions of billions of dollars in lost merchandise revenue whirling in front of their eyes. “You’re going to kill off half of all the superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the only guy – Doctor Strange – capable of bringing them back?”

In terms of far-out creative decisions, this one is right up there with Luke Skywalker’s declaration in Star Wars: The Last Jedi that he wanted nothing to do with laser sword-wielding space monks.

Avengers: Infinity War -Review

Wow. Ten years. Really? Must be since they incorporated the fact into their logo, so it’s gotta’ be true. So, time really zips by when you’re having fun. And fun is the often overused word when it comes to the prolific (19 and counting) output of Marvel Studios. Like many great achievements, people scoffed at first. That comic book juggernaut, nicknamed the “House of Ideas” by Stan “the man” Lee decades ago, thought the best way to bring their big staple of characters and properties to cinemas would be to make the films themselves. Or at least they’d make sure their beloved heroes would be portrayed with respect to the source material, and would delight their millions of fans across the globe. That scoffing came from movie reporters and analysts who thought this was pure folly. After all, Marvel’s biggest stars, the X-Men and Spider-Man, were off-limits,

Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s "Avengers Week" continued on Wednesday as Chris Hemsworth, Chadwick Boseman, Karen Gillan, Sebastian Stan and Josh Brolin joined the ABC host to surprise fans of the Avengers franchise on Hollywood Blvd.

Promising people who were in line for a Marvel movies marathon a "sneak peak" at the upcoming film, Live! set up a head-sized hole in a wall, behind which the Avengers stars were waiting.

"I'm literally lost for words right now," one woman, who was dressed in a Thor outfit, said when she took off her Thor helmet and peeked through the hole. Chadwick Boseman then offered her...

The Merc with a Mouth says bigger is better in Deadpool 2 IMAX TV spot

Following yesterday’s posters and TV spot [take a look here], IMAX has released a promo for Deadpool 2 which sees the Merc with a Mouth letting us know that bigger is better (and also explains why we saw those set photos of a Mini-Merc); check it out below…

Marvel’s motormouth mercenary is back! Bigger, better and occasionally more pantless than ever before. When a super soldier arrives on a murderous mission, Deadpool is forced to think about friendship, family and what it really means to be a hero – all while kicking 50 shades of ass. Because, sometimes, to do the right thing you need to fight dirty.

Deadpool 2 sees David Leitch (John Wick) directing a cast that includes returning stars Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), T.J. Miller (Weasel), Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead), Stefan Kapicic (Colossus), Leslie Uggams (Blind Al

Zazie Beetz’s Domino Locked In For The X-Force Movie

Infinity War actor Josh Brolin isn’t the only one wholly committed to Fox’s X-Men franchise – That Hashtag Show brings word today that Zazie Beetz will reprise the role of Domino for X-Force, the Drew Goddard team-up movie that is said to be targeting a production start on October 1st.

Indeed, much like Brolin before her, Beetz has reportedly signed a three-picture deal with Fox, so news that her Domino will be returning for X-Force shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

Pre-production is just now getting underway on the ensemble movie ahead of its October start date, by which point Goddard and his team will be directing a “Black Ops force of down and dirty mutant warriors who are far more ruthless than their X-Men counterparts.” Yikes.

Beyond that, details are scarce; all we know for sure is that Deadpool 2 will likely act as something of

5 Characters Most Likely to Die in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

5 Characters Most Likely to Die in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
The following is spoiler-free, as it is based on the comic book storylines, not on “Avengers: Infinity War.” For all the great things the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has accomplished, one it has always struggled with is making the audience feel concerned for the hero’s safety.

In the 18 released films only Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) has died — in the final moments of “Age of Ultron” — and that wasn’t exactly a crushing loss. Even when “The Avengers” tried having a meaningful death by killing Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) — a character we’d gotten to know through multiple of the Phase 1 films — it was immediately undone thanks to ABC’s “Agents of Shield.” “Infinity War” has a real chance to shake things up by killing off a big character for good.

Through the last 10 years, the McU has created a massive stable of characters. Perhaps some of them would

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Review: The Road Ends Here

In the 10 year build up to Avengers: Infinity War, the common refrain was that all roads were leading to this momentous coming together of all the Marvel Studios heroes to face the mad Titan, Thanos. It's safe to say the road has officially ended. What began as an inside-joke-for-fans stinger on 2008's Iron Man hinting at the "Avengers Initiative," to the revelation of Thanos in the mid-credits scene in 2012's The Avengers, to the introduction of the "a-hole" Guardians of the Galaxy, which opened up the Marvel Cosmic universe, to a groundbreaking inter-studio deal that brought Spider-Man home, after a full decade and 18 films, the puzzle is now complete.

Avengers: Infinity War is monumental in that it brings together almost every costumed hero from all 18 previous films and mashes them together to face the Thanos (Josh Brolin) threat. There are some great call backs to various classic comic book moments,

Chadwick Boseman says Avengers: Infinity War is “not Black Panther 1.5”

Chadwick Boseman has said that Avengers: Infinity War isn’t a sequel to Black Panther.

With the myriad movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it can be easy to think of them all as sequels to each other, especially when it comes to the big team-up events like in Avengers: Infinity War.

And although Black Panther was the last film to be released before Infinity War, Chadwick Boseman has said that Infinity War is its own entity and is not a proper sequel to Ryan Coogler’s movie.

Avengers: Infinity War is Avengers: Infinity War.” Boseman explained at a recent press conference (via ComicBook.com). “It’s not Black Panther 1.5. …I feel like we have a strong presence in the movie, but it’s its own thing.”

Boseman also told ComicBook.com during a set visit about the influence Black Panther will have on Infinity War: “You have a world problem with Thanos.

Thanos co-creator gives his review of Avengers: Infinity War

Co-creator of Thanos, Jim Starlin, has told the world what he thinks of Avengers: Infinity War.

The reviews are finally coming in for the most anticipated movie of the year and it seems like most people are really enjoying what they are seeing. With a 68 on Metacritic and 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, fans are getting a good sense of the general opinion regarding the latest Avengers film.

One individual that fans might be interesting in hearing from on the subject is the co-creator of Infinity War’s villain, Jim Starlin. Starlin took to Facebook after seeing the movie and it’s fair to say that he loved what he saw:

“Visually spectacular, as are all the Marvel movies. But this film hits emotional depths few of the others have even come close to, yet humor takes center stage at all the rights moments. There are a couple times my chest constricted from what I was seeing,

Stars of the McU Share Their Reactions to Infinity War

Keeping the secrets of Infinity War hidden was and still is, an intense job for Marvel Studios and the Russo Brothers. The directors went to great lengths to keep everything under wraps including making fake scripts to hand out to some of the members of the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's biggest achievement thus far. The studio and directing team even went so far as to not let the cast of Infinity War see the movie in its entirety until the world premiere date, which was just this past Monday night. Needless to say, there were some pretty intense reactions from the McU actors. All reactions below are Spoiler-free, so read ahead with confidence.

Most fans of the McU found it hard to believe that the Russo Brothers and Marvel Studios didn't let any of the actors see Infinity War beforehand, but it is true. The stars of the

Avengers 4 rough cut is three hours, final running time expected to be longer than Infinity War

Clocking in at two-and-a-half hours, Marvel StudiosAvengers: Infinity War is the longest Marvel movie to date, surpassing the 147 minutes of directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s previous film Captain America: Civil War. And it seems their next Marvel entry is going to be even longer.

Asked by Collider whether they expect Avengers 4 to run longer than Infinity War, Joe Russo responded “I do”, before Anthony added that the rough cut “is pretty long… also I don’t know you can even properly call it a rough cut because… it’s more like an assembly.”

“They [Disney] have never put a time…to their credit we’ve never gotten a time mandate from them,” said Anthony, with Joe going on to state that: “I’d say it could easily be a three-hour film, but I’ll say we work very hard on the material. We like it to play at a certain pace…

“Avengers: Infinity War” is a one of a kind epic culmination for Marvel

Hollywood Heroes™: It was all building up to this. Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe was launched with Iron Man, there has been a a slow progression towards an endgame. Now, this week, the McU has it with Avengers: Infinity War. Part one of a culmination of everything Kevin Feige has envisioned, this truly is a one of a kind epic. Nothing will be the same after this. The fact that Marvel’s honchos are even keeping the title of the next Avengers movie a secret (due to its inherently spoiler type nature) means something. With just a few days to go until audiences the world over lay eyes on it, anticipation is at a fever pitch. Once again, the film is a culmination of all that the McU has built so far. Marvel Studios describes it as such: “As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect

Avengers: Infinity War tracking $500 million worldwide box office opening

As Avengers: Infinity War begins its global rollout, tracking figures are predicting – as you might expect – that the hugely-anticipated Marvel superhero epic will enjoy one of the biggest worldwide opening weekends in history with over $500 million in box office receipts.

Domestically, analysts are projecting between $216 million and $235 million, although some are going as high as $275 million, which would smash the record opening of $247.9 million set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015.

Globally, Infinity War is expected to gross between $475 million and $500 million, an enormous figure considering that it does not take into account China, where the film opens on May 11th.

Three films have opened to $500 million plus in Jurassic World ($524.9 million), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($529 million) and The Fate of the Furious ($541.9 million), although all but The Force Awakens included the Chinese market.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Review: Dirs. Anthony & Joe Russo (2018)

Avengers Infinity War review: Marvel Studios delivers the biggest film of 2018, one which absolutely delivers on promise – a big, bold stunner that will leave you gasping for breath.

Avengers Infinity War review by Paul Heath.

Avengers Infinity War review

When you throw twenty-something plus superheroes, along with a reported budget of close to $300 million at the screen, you had better produce something bloody special. Avengers: Infinity War is perhaps the biggest film of the year, the first of an apparent two-parter which is set to put to bed Marvel Studios’ third phase, and polish off their first, hugely successful ten years quite nicely. The film is culmination of that first decade, one that has made close to $15 billion for Marvel and its parent company Disney, and despite the lofty expectations of this massive ensemble from the brothers Russo, Anthony and Joe (Captain America: Civil War), it’s safe to say

Poll: Which Summer Tentpole Are You Most Excited to See?

Poll: Which Summer Tentpole Are You Most Excited to See?
The summer movie season officially kicks off this Friday with “Avengers: Infinity War” — and it’s set to launch the season with a bang.

It’s heading toward a monster $225 million-plus weekend, marking one of the biggest debuts of all time. And it’s only the beginning of a number of surefire blockbusters (comic-book-themed and otherwise) that will hit theaters this summer.

First to follow “Avengers”: “Deadpool 2.” The first movie starring the merc with a mouth shattered records for an R-rated movie, and Ryan Reynolds is returning for its follow-up on May 18, joined by Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beetz as Domino.

Just a week after the “Deadpool” sequel, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” will fly into theaters on May 25, starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo, joined by Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, and Woody Harrelson.

“Ocean’s 8” is also sure to make a big splash

Benicio Del Toro Teases ‘Sicario’ Sequel, Talks ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Benicio Del Toro Teases ‘Sicario’ Sequel, Talks ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
Sicario,” a dark and violent look at the drug war, doesn’t exactly scream franchise. It’s characters are morally compromised and its outlook on a conflict that’s devastated families on both sides of the U.S. and Mexican border adds up to a bleak and unflinching drama. There’s nary a caped crusader to be found in this morass.

Despite the obstacles, the 2015 drama is getting a follow-up with this summer’s “Sicario: Day of the Soldado.” Unlike the first film, which centers on Emily Blunt’s novice agent, the sequel focuses on Alejandro Gillick, the brutally efficient hit man who oversees off-the-book operations for the CIA. Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro returns to the role, along with Josh Brolin, who once again plays the government official Matt Graver. Blunt sits this one out.

“I felt the character could be explored further,” Del Toro told Variety during an interview at CinemaCon.

Avengers: Infinity War Review

Avengers: Infinity War reviews, what are they good for? Let’s be honest – not much. Marvel’s cinematic branch has been steamrolling its way towards 2018’s inevitable roster shakedown since 2008’s Iron Man, nary a hiccup or roadblock to count. Kevin Feige has effectively reshaped modern blockbuster culture for ten years (and counting), all signs pointing towards this interdimensional doomsday event teased by Thanos’ first post-credits cameo in 2012’s The Avengers. Mission accomplished, achievement unlocked, and now it’s time to see what new box office records Marvel can break. Could Black Panther be dethroned already? (I’m doubling-down on “No.”)

Right, you’ve clicked here for a reason – who am I to deny some early hot-off-the-presses buzz?

“Was it all worth it? The origins, sequels, and spinoffs? Did Marvel answer our prayers?” Yes(ish). No mincing of words. Avengers: Infinity War could have been an easy victim of expectations and brand loyalty,
