What to Expect Between Now and When Avengers 4 Arrives Next Year

What to Expect Between Now and When Avengers 4 Arrives Next Year
Ten years ago, the idea of making a superhero team-up movie utilizing some of the biggest stars in Hollywood was unthinkable. Today, that's exactly the model most comic-book properties seek to emulate and a format audiences can't resist. Avengers: Infinity War is Marvel's latest (and most ambitious) installment of that formula and includes heroes from 18 films within its canon - including Black Panther, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and the Guardians of the Galaxy - all working together to defeat the long-teased world-destroying villain, Thanos. But with Infinity War officially released, what are we supposed to do now? Start digging up dirt on the sequel, of course!

Here's what we know so far: Avengers 4 is untitled and is set for release in April 2019. This has led to major speculation about the significance of the unknown title and questions regarding why filmmakers are choosing to keep it a secret. When Yahoo Movies

DGA President Slams ‘Discriminatory Practices’ Still ‘Rampant’ in Hollywood

  • The Wrap
The push for diversity in the directors’ chair is still spinning its wheels, according to the Directors Guild of America’s new study of feature films in 2017.

The report, released on Thursday, studied all 651 films that were theatrically released last year, including those with a box office gross of less than $250,000. Even with microbudget films included, the DGA found that only 16 percent of last year’s films were directed by women. When reducing the survey pool just to films that grossed more than $250,000 at the box office, only 12 percent are directed by women with 10 percent directed by people of color.

Every Marvel Comics Live-Action TV Show Ranked, from ‘Spider-Man’ to ‘Luke Cage’

  • The Wrap
The recent crop of hit Netflix shows aren’t the first time Marvel has taken its heroes to the small screen. Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, Blade and even knock-off-ish X-Men have had a go before the current golden age. Here are all the Marvel shows you’ve seen and a few you might not have, ranked from goofiest pajama costumes to best character-driven dramas.

18. “The Amazing Spider-Man” (1977-79)

A 1977 attempt at a live-action “Spider-Man” is a fun throwback — but in a purely ironic way because Peter Parker’s wall-crawling “special effects” are pretty cringe-worthy. Watching Spider-Man fight guys using extremely hokey choreography gives the whole thing a pretty goofy vibe.

17. “Spidey Super Stories” (1974-1977)

Some days, Spider-Man takes on some super-boring villains. He goes up against The Prankster (a school principal who keeps pranking his students) and The Spoiler (who just likes to everyday things for people) in these goofy

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 Gives Spidey a New Suit

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is going to be giving Marvel's resident webslinger a new suit. Little is known about what Marvel Studios has planned beyond next year's Avengers 4 for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of the few guarantees is the next Spider-Man standalone movie, which begins filming in the near future. While we still have a lot of questions in regards to what the movie is going to look like and how exactly it's going to work given some recent events in the McU, namely Avengers: Infinity War, it looks like Spidey is going to be getting a new costume.

This comes to us courtesy of costume designer Louise Frogley. She worked on the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp, as well as Iron Man 3 and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Even though she admits she isn't working on the sequel, Frogley says that Peter Parker is going to be transitioning into

Ang Lee’s ‘Hulk’ Proves How Far the Superhero Genre Has Come

It’s tough to imagine a time when superhero movies weren’t omnipresent. The “genre” is currently the biggest around, with comic book adaptations flooding multiplexes year-round to massive success. They’ve become so huge that just last month, two superhero movies completely overshadowed a brand new Star Wars film at the box office. But it wasn’t always this way. Not too long ago, comic book adaptations were niche, and Hollywood was still a little iffy on the whole idea. That changed significantly with the one-two punch of 2000’s X-Men and 2002’s Spider-Man, …

Megabytes: E3 Conference Winners And Losers

  • Cinelinx
Megabytes is a opinion based review of all the hottest topics of the past week (or two). You can catch our opinion in video form on our weekly recap show as well.

This past week we got the chance to celebrate E3, the biggest event for gamers. So why not take a chance to review what we got from the show. Plenty of announcements, but the biggest aspect of E3 is the conferences. Now that we’ve had some time to let them set in, watched parts of them a few more times, and allowed the excitement to die down, how did they do?

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

Winner – Bethesda

Honestly Bethesda was the only conference I truly enjoyed 100 percent. I’m not a Fallout fan, couldn’t care less about Fallout 76, and yet they still had me excited and had a bunch of titles I wanted

Sony’s Spider-Man PS4 Exclusive Has A Big Avengers Connection

Last week during E3, we learned a lot about the new Spider-Man PS4 exclusive being developed by Insomniac Games. And even though the event’s now over, the revelations continue, and some of them are pretty interesting.

YouTuber Caboose recently posted some gameplay footage from the convention and there’s a particularly exciting moment 53 seconds in. Pause on that frame in the player above and you’ll see Spider-Man perched on top of a high tower, looking out across the skyscrapers of New York City. One in particular stands out, though, as not only is it the tallest building in the landscape, but it prominently features a red Avengers logo.

What could it mean? Well, the most obvious possibility is that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will feature. Or at least a few of them, like Iron Man (who’s been rumored) or Bruce Banner. With a cast of characters that

Avengers: Infinity War Fan Art Imagines Tobey Maguire As Iron Spider

Tom Holland’s third cinematic iteration of Spider-Man has been a huge hit with fans since he debuted in Captain America: Civil War, but there are those out there who’re still loyal to the wall-crawlers that came before him. Some maintain that Andrew Garfield was unfairly treated by the defunct Amazing Spider-Man franchise while others swear that Tobey Maguire has never been topped for his performance in Sam Raimi’s original trilogy of Spidey films.

Unfortunately for fans of those webslingers, neither Maguire nor Garfield’s Peter Parkers ever met other Marvel heroes. But what would it be like if, say, the former featured in Avengers: Infinity War instead of Holland, meaning he got to rub shoulders with the likes of Iron Man, Doctor Strange and the Guardians instead? Well, some new fan art – originally posted on Reddit – has given us a pretty good idea, as it replaces Holland

I'm on the Hype Train for These 5 Games at E3 2018

  • Cinelinx
E3 2018 is over but the hype on some of the newly revealed games is just getting started. While there were plenty exciting games on display, these are the ones I've completely joined the hype train for.

Even though this year's E3 felt a little more lowkey than previous years (with more than a few disappointing conferences), there were still some amazing games that made it all worthwhile. Here, I want to talk about the ones I fell for the hardest. While a couple may have already been on 'my radar' their showings at E3 2018 kicked my anticipation into overdrive.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

I love turn-based strategy games and while I came to the Fire Emblem franchise late (with Awakening) it's now among my favorites. We've known about the series' return to home consoles for a while, but E3 finally showed us what's coming...and it was great.

New Avengers 4 Theory Suggests There Was A Split In The Marvel Universe

As crushed as many of us were by the ending of Avengers: Infinity War, it was always pretty obvious that we haven’t seen the last of all the heroes who turned to dust before our eyes. Surely the McU hasn’t dropped Black Panther after just one hugely successful solo outing. And doesn’t Tom Holland already have another Spider-Man film planned?

While time travel remains by far the most prominent theory on how Avengers 4 is going to dig some of the franchise’s most cherished characters out of the hole dug by Infinity War, one user on Reddit has an alternative idea that would see the Marvel universe branch into two – which is pretty intriguing.

Here’s how he explains it:

Everyone who got dusted in Infinity War is still alive…in a separate universe.

Everything we see after the snap is Universe A, as Cap, Iron Man,

Here's How Infinity War Screenwriters Would Fix the Dceu

Here's How Infinity War Screenwriters Would Fix the Dceu
Infinity War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have left their mark on the comic book movie genre and have done a pretty incredible job at making some of the world's biggest superheroes seem like ordinary human beings with extraordinary powers, which is not an easy feat. The writers also had a hand in making the upcoming Avengers 4 where the stakes are even higher than last time around. As Infinity War crosses the $2 billion mark, Markus and McFeely were asked how they would improve upon the Dceu.

While appearing on Kevin Smith's Fatman on Batman podcast, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely were asked about how they would approach taking on the Dceu. Before asking the question, Smith praised the work that the duo had accomplished with Captain America: Civil War as well as Infinity War. The director/writer calls the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies "wonderful films about people," and then launches into the question.

Avengers: Infinity War Writers Touch On The X-Men Coming To The McU

Although Avengers: Infinity War was labelled as the most ambitious crossover event in history, it could soon find itself being bumped to second best. That’s if the deal for Disney to purchase 21st Century Fox goes through.

With the rights to the X-Men and the Fantastic Four currently owned by Fox, if the purchase does actually materialize, the potential to import those heroes into the McU is mind-blowing. More so, much like with Sony’s Spider-Man toe-dipping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it would be regarded as a rightfully deserved homecoming by comic book movie fans.

The prospect of this crossover has made for interesting viewing over the last little while, too. The Merc with a Mouth has more or less been down on his knees, begging to be allowed into the McU through homages and fourth-wall breakages. He even went to the lengths of tidying his own timeline

‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 TV Review: Still Doesn’t Quite Know What It Wants to Be

‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 TV Review: Still Doesn’t Quite Know What It Wants to Be
It took me about half the second season of “Luke Cage” to figure out why I was having such a hard time getting sucked into it. It’s not that the characters are bad, or that it isn’t written well. Individual pieces of season 2 are, in fact, extremely compelling and even thought-provoking. But the whole of it just doesn’t add up.

Officially, season 2 of “Luke Cage” is about, according to the official synopsis: “With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.” I can see that, abstractly. The main thrust of the season involves a three-pronged conflict — Luke Cage himself (Mike Coulter) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick) in one corner, Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) and Shades Alvarez (Theo Rossi) in another, and a Jamaican badass called the Bushmaster in the third.

The Bushmaster has a secret vendetta against Mariah,

Jurassic World 2 Was Spoiled for Chris Pratt by Tom Holland

Jurassic World 2 Was Spoiled for Chris Pratt by Tom Holland
Infinity War star Tom Holland has been known to spoil movies for everybody, which now has extended to his fellow actors and a movie that he's not even in. In a new interview, Chris Pratt, who starred alongside Holland in Infinity War, says that the Spider-Man actor spoiled Jurassic World 2 before he even read the script. Tom Holland just has a natural gift for freely sharing secrets with just about anybody who will listen or even to a sold out movie theater who are about to watch the movie he just blabbed about.

To set up the story properly, Chris Pratt says that he spoke to Tom Holland while he was filming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Holland was working on Spider-Man: Homecoming at the same time and came over to the Guardians set for a visit. Pratt notes that Holland already knew Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona from a previous movie,
