Avengers: Infinity Bawl – The Most Emotional Moments in the McU

Matt Rodgers on the most emotional moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe…

There was a phase in my own cinematic universe when I couldn’t tell you who Tony Stark was, let alone a Groot, Thanos, or Stephen Strange. So it’s testament to the mega-budget jigsaw puzzle which Marvel have created, that not only have I been front and centre at press screenings or opening night showings, but the near-decade long adventures have bled into the conversations I’d have with my own parents. “Have you seen the new metal man?” or “Everyone’s talking about that new Pink Panther movie.” For the McU to take up part of their seventy year old memory archive is an impressive feat.

With that in mind I’ve sat through the trailers for Avengers: Infinity War, unmoved by the spectacle, and subsequently hit up my timeline to see the numerous “please don’t kill Cap” Tweets,

The Original Marvel Studios Plan Would Have Led To A Very Different Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War could have been very different had Kevin Feige followed the original plan for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’re talking no Iron Man, no Thor – and a lot more Power Pack.

It can be strange to consider how much the superhero movie landscape has changed since the McU started back in 2008. When Iron Man released, it felt like the bubble was either going to burst – both <a href="https://screenrant.

War Machine Joins the Battle for Wakanda in Latest Infinity War Footage

War Machine Joins the Battle for Wakanda in Latest Infinity War Footage
A new Russian behind-the-scenes featurette shows off some new Avengers: Infinity War footage. In the latest preview, Don Cheadle's War Machine can be seen in some serious danger during the Wakanda battle scene. Marvel fans have been hearing a lot about the epic Wakanda fight sequence, which as Anthony Mackie says is 25 pages of script alone. The number of superheroes on the screen during the giant scene is unprecedented and it looks intense.

The new Russian Infinity War featurette mostly focuses on Wakanda, showing Steve Rogers, Black Widow, James Rhodes, Bruce Banner, and Vision stepping off of a Quinjet in the secluded country. Banner humorously bows when meeting T'Challa for the first time, getting a good laugh out of Rhodes. Elsewhere, there's unseen footage of the heroes banding together to fight against Thanos and the Outriders who have taken over Wakanda. There's new footage of shields getting placed as

5 New Infinity War Posters Unfold a Sprawling Thanos Standoff

5 New Infinity War Posters Unfold a Sprawling Thanos Standoff
Some new Avengers: Infinity War posters have arrived online, and they are quite possibly the best ones we've seen for the epic event movie so far. Marvel has been promoting the movie heavily, as one would expect, and that has included a slew of various posters. While some have been good, often times these days, posters just look like a bunch of stuff crammed into a small space with Photoshop. However, these new posters are the furthest thing from a rushed Photoshop job.

This particular series of Avengers: Infinity War posters are going to be made available exclusively at Odeon Cinemas in the U.K. They were designed by artist Matt Ferguson, who has done some work with Marvel in the past. The five posters feature the various teams of heroes that are going to be featured in the movie, with one poster featuring Thanos gloriously holding up the Infinity Gauntlet.

How 'Avengers: Infinity War' Is Selling the "End Is Near" for a Neverending Series

How 'Avengers: Infinity War' Is Selling the
It’s hard to miss the sense of finality that pervades the marketing campaign for Avengers: Infinity War. At every turn, Disney and Marvel Studios have made it clear to the audience that this is the end. This is the moment the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, launched in 2008 when Samuel L. Jackson appeared at the end of Iron Man to mention the “Avengers Initiative,” has been building toward.

As part of this big moment, the movie has also been billed as, to quote Marvel’s press materials, “the most ambitious crossover event in history.” While that claim has certainly...

Avengers: Infinity War director says “there is nobody” who can take over from Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man

As we fast approach the end of the first chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Infinity War and next year’s Avengers 4, it is expected that we’ll be bidding farewell to some of our favourite heroes as contracts expire, actors move on, and the landscape of the McU shifts towards some newer faces.

One of the actors who many expect to make way over the next two Avengers movies is Robert Downey Jr., who of course kickstarted the entire McU when he took on the role of Tony Stark back in 2008’s Iron Man. However, Marvel will be wasting its time trying to find a successor, at least according to Infinity War co-director Joe Russo, who believes Downey is irreplaceable.

“There is nobody who can take over Iron Man from Robert,” said Russo, who also directed the actor in Captain America: Civil War. “He can’t play the character forever.

Spider-Man PS4 Might Launch A Marvel Games Universe

Right now, Insomniac GamesSpider-Man for PlayStation 4 looks set to be the first genuinely great Spidey title since Treyarch’s Spider-Man 2 licensed game way back in 2004. From the trailers we’ve seen, it’s got a cool aesthetic, snappy gameplay and a real sense of kinetic motion that every Spider-Man game needs. Expectations are high – so high, in fact that Executive Creative Director Bill Rosemann is making noise about this being the launchpad for a new Marvel games universe.

While Marvel characters have dominated cinemas and staked their claim to the small screen with Netflix’s excellent Defenders’ stable, things haven’t quite been so busy in the interactive arena. There’s the odd licensed release – stuff like the Lego Marvel Superheroes series, Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Capcom’s iffy Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite – but they’re completely disconnected from one another.

But, could they one

EW Unveils Gorgeous Avengers: Infinity War Collector’s Edition

In honor of Avengers: Infinity War and all of the superhero spectacle it brings, Entertainment Weekly has assembled a very special, 96-page issue dedicated to what is perhaps the most important, defining movie in the history of Marvel Studios.

And that’s not a phrase to be taken lightly. Ever since Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury popped up during the after-credits scene in Iron Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has gone from strength to strength, and now encompasses everything from Afrocentric epics (Black Panther) to space operas that are as weird as they are wonderful – here’s looking at you, Guardians of the Galaxy.

All of that (and more!) is recounted in EW’s collector’s edition. It’s available to pick up from today and will set you back $14.99. That’s not all the much, either, considering this special issue comes packing “stories from the battle-strewn set of Infinity War,

Robert Downey Jr. Doesn’t Know How Avengers: Infinity War Ends

Picture the scene: you’re an actor (or actress!), who turns up to set bright and early one day only to realize that all of the lines you’ve memorized – all of the little nuances that make up your character – are fake. As are all the scenes written down on your dummy script, which is about to be shredded in the name of secrecy.

Such is the day-to-day life of an Avenger, as Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Paul Bettany (Vision) told GamesRadar in a recent interview. They were joined by Joe and Anthony Russo, the creative minds/gatekeepers behind Avengers: Infinity War, who revealed that Tom Holland is mostly to blame for Marvel’s strict no spoiler policy.

And while we know that most of the cast members were left in the dark as to all the juicy plot details, surely the Godfather of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Robert Downey Jr.,

Deadpool Creator Says The X-Force May Rival The Avengers In Popularity

Notoriously podophobic comic artist Rob Liefeld is finally having another day in the sun.

For a couple of years in the 1990s he was the biggest thing in comic books, with his New Mutants, Youngblood and X-Force titles defining the look of the medium with their penchant for giant guns, preposterous proportions and lots (and lots and lots) of extraneous pouches. Since that craze died down he’s been something of a punchline, with his awful Captain America becoming the byword for bad comic book art. But now, with Deadpool 2‘s release just a month away, Liefeld is having the last laugh.

Deadpool, who he created with writer Fabian Nicieza back in 1991, is one of the most popular contemporary heroes, and the upcoming sequel is set to bring many Liefeld characters to the big screen as members of the X-Force team he created – who are essentially a more violent,

Iron Man's Fate Teased in Latest Infinity War IMAX Preview

IMAX has released a new episode of their Behind the Frame series on Avengers: Infinity War and in addition to touting the amazing look of the film, it also teases the death of Iron Man. The deaths of some of the major Avengers has been talked about for months, and this new bit of footage certainly does not look good for Tony Stark and his meeting with Thanos. The tone of Infinity War is dark, but recent TV spots have focused on more of the lighter side of things, showing some the comedic elements of the movie.

At the 2:40-minute mark in the new Infinity War featurette, Thanos can be seen uttering the words, "I hope they remember you..." The line has been heard in previous trailers and TV spots, but we see him deliver the line before the camera flashes to a bloody and torn up Tony Stark.

All These Movies Are Turning 10 This Year, Because We're Old Now

It may not seem like 2008 was that long ago, but guess what? As of 2018, it's been 10 years since the New York Giants came out of nowhere to upset the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl; since we said goodbye to Boston Legal, Passions, and The Wire; and since we said hello to Sons of Anarchy, True Blood, and Fringe.

So let's take a look back at movies that are turning 10 years old in 2018, including Cloverfield, The Dark Knight, and Iron Man.

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?
“Rampage” opened #1 last weekend at just under $36 million, with Dwayne Johnson its only name draw. Is that enough to make The Rock the biggest movie star in Hollywood — or, is his greatest asset the near-complete dearth of actors who can open movies?

Johnson’s marquee value is well documented. Since 2011, he appeared in eight films that grossed over $100 million (nine if you include the animated “Moana”). “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “The Fate of the Furious” in 2017 each exceeded $200 million. However, times have changed. Once, being a top star meant your movies were always the year’s biggest movies. Now, in an era where animation and comic-book adaptations are the biggest draws, an actor’s own larger-than-life appeal is less important.

Rampage” should make around $90 million domestic and another $300 million or so additional overseas. Expect it to make $400 worldwide, perhaps a little more. With production and marketing costs topping $220 million,

"The Life of Captain Marvel"

Marvel Comics' "The Life of Captain Marvel" #1, available July 2018, in support of the currently shooting Marvel Studios' feature film starring Oscar winner Brie Larson, is written by Margaret Stohl and illustrated by Carlos Pacheco, with covers by Julian Totino Tedesco, Artgerm , Joe Quesada, Fiona Staples and Sana Takeda:

"...'Carol Danvers' was just a girl from the Boston suburbs who loved science and the 'Red Sox' until a chance encounter with an alien 'Kree' gave her incredible super-powers.

"Now, she's a leader in the 'Avengers' and the commander of 'Alpha Flight'. But what if there were more to the story?

New Infinity War Clip Sees The Sorcerer Supreme Clash With Iron Man

Tony Stark and Stephen Strange – two New York natives with higher IQs than the last 10 Avengers combined.

And yet, in what is perhaps a textbook example of two egos clashing, Good Morning Britain has debuted a brand new Avengers: Infinity War clip in which the Sorcerer Supreme delivers some hard truths to a snarky Stark.

In typically irreverent fashion, Robert Downey Jr.’s tech genius is seen goofing around within the hallowed halls of the Sanctum Sanctorum – much to the frustration of Benedict Cumberbatch’s all-wise, all-powerful magician, who rambles on about the oncoming threat of Thanos and his nefarious Black Order, who seek to wipe out half of the universe through the power of those six Infinity Stones.

Suffice it to say, the fate of the world hangs in the balance, and while appearing on Good Morning Britain, Cumberbatch previewed that fiery dynamic between Stark and Strange:

Spider-Man PS4 developers have ambitions to launch a Marvel Video Game Universe

As we draw closer to Avengers: Infinity War, we also continue to anticipate other Marvel projects, including the much hyped Spider-Man PS4 game. With daily updates on the progression of the game and the likelihood of incredible sales on the horizon, developers Insomniac are already looking to the future.

In an interview with The Telegraph Creative Director Bill Rosemann said that:

“I mean, they tacked on that Nick Fury scene at the end of Iron Man but did anyone think it would culminate in The Avengers? Or now Avengers: Infinity War? That was a pipe dream. The first intention was, let’s just make the best Iron Man movie. We’re approaching it the same way. This is going to be hard enough. Let’s just make the best Spider-Man game. Let’s do that.

New Avengers: Infinity War Banners Tease Exciting Team-Ups

As far as Avengers: Infinity War‘s release schedule is concerned, Marvel Studios has officially entered crunch time.

The film is finished, of course, but with only nine days left to go, the Powers That Be are beginning to tread that fine line between promoting Infinity War and spoiling Infinity War. From clips to TV spots and everything in between, we’ve seen an awful lot from the event movie in recent weeks and today, that continues with some brand new banners.

Thankfully, though, these don’t spoil anything at all, instead teasing us with what are sure to be some exciting team-ups. There’s one of the several Avengers assembled together, but we also get shots of Cap and Thor, Black Widow and Black Panther and, perhaps most intriguing of all, Doctor Strange and Iron Man.

Avengers: Infinity War Will Be Much Funnier Than Captain America Movies

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have proven themselves to be amongst the best filmmakers the McU has to offer with their past two efforts for the franchise: namely, 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. The movies were distinct from others in the series because, among other things, they mostly steered away from the usual lighter-hearted tone of the McU.

Now they’re helming a fully-fledged Avengers flick in the shape of Infinity War and as such, the duo have altered the tone somewhat. Joe’s promised that the upcoming event movie will actually be a lot funnier than their previous Marvel productions, just as is appropriate because it’s not part of the Captain America series.

“I think that tone is an under-appreciated aspect of filmmaking. In fact, one of the most critical aspects is managing tone, and this film in particular, when egos

Watch: Iron Man Gets His Own Infinity War TV Spot

Of all the many, many heroes lining the character roster of Avengers: Infinity War, Tony Stark (Aka Iron Man) is arguably the most popular of the bunch. And for good reason.

It’s going on 10 years since Robert Downey Jr. and director Jon Favreau struck gold with the original Iron Man movie, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe hasn’t slowed down since. As a matter of fact, after a full decade of superhero action, the McU is bigger now than it’s ever been, and with Kevin Feige and Co. already plotting Phase 4, there will be no shortage of Marvel movies beyond 2018, of that we are certain.

One thing that’s isn’t guaranteed, though, is the fate of each character, leading many to assume that one of Marvel’s big guns will bite the bullet late next week. And though that may be true, the Powers That Be have
