The Russos tease Avengers 4 title with cryptic tweet

Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo have taken to Twitter to share a rather cryptic image of Joe sitting alone on an empty soundstage, complete with a caption encouraging fans to “look hard”.

Look hard… pic.twitter.com/NxI8RFh4f6

— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) September 19, 2018

The assumption here is that the image includes the as-yet-unrevealed title for Avengers 4, and even just by glancing briefly at the image its easy to see that there are several potential “A” letters on display. Looking more closely though, a number of people believe they’ve found “End Game” – and, as you may recall, cinematographer Trent Opaloch referred to the sequel as Avengers: End Game on his official website a few months back.

Marvel Series About Female Superheroes From ‘Wonder Woman’s Allan Heinberg Set At ABC With Big Commitment

  • Deadline
Marvel Series About Female Superheroes From ‘Wonder Woman’s Allan Heinberg Set At ABC With Big Commitment
Exclusive: Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg is aiming to bring more female superheroes to the screen, this time in television.

ABC has given a production commitment to an untitled hourlong drama from Heinberg, Marvel Television and ABC Studios. Written by Heiinberg, it is about female characters with superpowers.

In typical Marvel fashion, further details are being kept close to the vest, but I hear the drama is based on lesser-known Marvel characters. There have been a number of fairly obscure female superhero team-ups that have appeared sporadically in Marvel comics over the years, including A-Force, Lady Liberators and Fearless Defenders.

Heinberg, who is under an overall deal at ABC Studios, is executive producing the potential series with Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb.

Launching a new Marvel series has been a priority for ABC, with the Heinberg project emerging as a strong contender from the get-go, I hear.

Marvel Miniseries Plan Will Bring Loki And Scarlet Witch To Disney Streaming Service

  • Deadline
Marvel Studios will give a solo spotlight to both Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, with each getting a TV miniseries to be offered exclusively through the Disney streaming service that is expected to launch in late 2019.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will oversee the new initiative, which would use limited-run television shows (typically six- to eight-episode story arcs) to dig into the stories of fan-favorite Marvel characters that don’t have their own film franchises.

Disney has made the streaming pipeline a major corporate focus and will be stacking the service with high-profile projects to entice subscribers. There’s the new Star Wars television series (which will be set three years after the death of Darth Vader) from executive producer Jon Favreau, the director of Iron Man and The Jungle Book. There’s also a High School Musical series as well as a remake of

Leading Hollywood Screenwriter Workspace theOffice Reopens In Santa Monica

  • Deadline
The unofficial “screenwriters den” for film and TV screenwriters known as theOffice has reopened its doors in Santa Monica after relocating from its original home in Brentwood.

Not to be confused with the NBC comedy by the same name (although it would be cool if it had the same set up), theOffice is a communal workspace for writers who are working on the next big film screenplay or TV series — and they have a roster of alumni to back it up which include J.J. Abrams, Chris Weitz, as well as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg who wrote What Lies Beneath and Choke. Other alums include Stepmom writer Gigi Levangie, Finding Dory‘s Victoria Strouse, All the Money in the World‘s David Scarpa, and Noah Oppenheim, screenwriter of Jackie and The Maze Runner.

Brooke Shields wrote the first words of her book on postpartum depression at the workspace. Charter members include her husband,

Here’s Your First Look At Young Phil Coulson In Captain Marvel

Today’s first trailer for Captain Marvel gave us a lot to chew on. From revealing new plot details to showing off Carol Danvers’ breathtaking powers to that weird moment where she punches an old lady. Amongst all the excitement, though, one brief moment you might have missed in the teaser was our first look at the return of Phil Coulson.

The fan favorite has been entertaining us on the small screen in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for years, but he hasn’t appeared in the movies since 2012’s The Avengers. Captain Marvel will see him return to the cinematic side of the McU though, but due to the 1990s setting, it’ll feature a Coulson twenty years younger than the one we know.

The trailer reveals just how he’ll appear in the prequel, and it looks like he’s got one fine quiff. You

Bryce Dallas Howard has defended Star-Lord’s actions in Avengers: Infinity War

Chris Pratt’s co-star in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has defended Star-Lord’s actions in Avengers: Infinity War.

Rightly or wrongly, Chris Pratt’s character Star-Lord is receiving a fair bit of abuse for his behaviour in Avengers: Infinity War, which many believed led to the mass killings enacted by Thanos.

Pratt’s co-star in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, however, sees it as purely Thanos’ fault, and has defended Star-Lord while speaking to ComicBook.com in a recent interview: “Well, here’s what I thought: I thought that it was a good story, well told. He’s the most human character. He’s half human and that spoke to his humanity in that moment. I think it is important that everyone realize that it was Thanos who did it. It was Thanos!”

Howard isn’t wrong, the person responsible for what ultimately happened in Infinity War is Thanos, and even

16 Big Takeaways From That Sick First ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer

  • The Wrap
16 Big Takeaways From That Sick First ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer
The first trailer for “Captain Marvel” is here, filling in a few details of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first standalone movie about a woman superhero. The hints are few and far between, though, because it seems protagonist Carol Danvers is suffering from amnesia. Here are all the details we’ve gleaned from our first big look at “Captain Marvel.”

Captain Marvel crashes on Earth with amnesia |

Judging from Nick Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) voice-over narration, Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) isn’t returning home for a social call. She first crashes on Earth, and it seems likely she’s in pursuit of a shapeshifting Skrull threat in her role as a member of Starforce, a team of aliens who hunt bad guys. Fury also calls her a “renegade soldier,” so she’s probably chasing down those bad guys in defiance of her Starforce orders. She also apparently doesn’t remember her life on Earth,

Relive The Epic Captain Marvel Trailer With Over 30 New Photos

The much-anticipated first trailer for Captain Marvel is finally here, and no doubt fans are going to spend the rest of their day trying to squeeze out as much information from the teaser as possible. If you’re looking to take a closer look at what the trailer reveals about the movie, though, then check out this batch of over 30 screengrabs which capture every major moment of our epic first glimpse at Brie Larson’s heroine in action.

As the trailer makes clear from the off with a nostalgic use of a Blockbuster video store, Captain Marvel is set back in the 1990s and will be influenced, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, by 90s action flicks like Top Gun. We get a pretty good feel for that in the preview, too, which teases some great action sequences. As Nick Fury puts it, we have a “space invasion, big

‘Captain Marvel’: Everything You Need to Know About Brie Larson’s Superhero Movie So Far

For the past decade, Marvel has successfully launched franchises for Captain America and Iron Man while turning smaller characters like Ant-Man and Falcon into fan favorites. But one glaring omission from Marvel’s on-screen dominance has been the lack of a female-led superhero movie.

Finally, in 2016, at San Diego Comic-Con day, Marvel surprised fans by announcing that Carol Danvers, a.k.a Captain Marvel, would be headed to the big screen. It would be Marvel’s first female-led superhero movie, and Academy Award winner Brie Larson would be stepping into the role.

Technically, Captain Marvel isn’t the first female superhero in the series. “Ant-Man and the Wasp” star Evangeline Lily’s Hope van Dyne shares the screen and film’s title with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, but she’s technically the first female Marvel character to have her own film.

Tony Stark and Pepper Potts reunite in Avengers 4 behind-the-scenes image

He may have found himself stranded on Titan at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, but based upon the latest behind-the-scenes photo from reshoots Avengers 4, we can expect to see a reunion between Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts in next year’s as-yet-untitled sequel, with Paltrow sharing the following photo to Instagram

Marvel is currently in the midst of additional photography on Avengers 4, which Mark Ruffalo has said is actually the cast and crew “finishing the movie”, rather than reshoots. We’ve also seen a few photos of some of the film’s other stars, including Chris Evans (Captain America), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow); you can take a look at those here.

Hawkeye’s Bruised And Beaten In New Avengers 4 Set Photo

When it was first revealed that one of the six members of the titular team of 2012’s The Avengers would be a dude who shoots arrows, the ensuing mockery was inevitable. But as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige implied earlier this year, that all died down once audiences got a chance see Clint Barton in action, with Jeremy Renner’s character proving to be a surprisingly effective fighter.

With practically every major hero in the McU showing up in Infinity War though, except Hawkeye, fans were left wondering just where the hell was he? After all, Clint was one of the team’s founding members and had played a major role in both the aforementioned 2012 blockbuster and Age of Ultron. Clearly, Marvel’s been saving him for Avengers 4, where Renner looks set to reprise the part of Barton in a very different way than we’ve previously seen.

New Video Tracks Hawkeye’s Kill Count In The Avengers Movies

When it was first marketed that one of the six members of the titular team of 2012’s The Avengers would be a guy who shoots arrows, the ensuing mockery was inevitable. But as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige implied earlier this year, the derision died down once viewers got see Clint Barton in action, with Jeremy Renner’s character proving to be a surprisingly effective fighter.

In fact, one YouTuber has now tallied a pretty impressive kill count for Hawkeye, based on his scenes in The Avengers and its 2015 sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. According to this new video, Clint racked up at least 19 confirmed deaths in the former and 21 in the latter, while using a total of just 28 arrows between the two films. What’s more, since we observe our hero firing several arrows without seeing where they landed, it’s safe to assume that most of them hit their targets,

Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg discuss Captain Marvel

After working their magic on the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Michael Douglas, Kurt Russell and Michelle Pfeiffer, Marvel’s digital de-aging wizards will next turn their attention to Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg as the duo make their S.H.I.E.L.D. return in the 90s-set Captain Marvel.

Speaking to EW, Jackson has revealed how his ninth outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will feature a very different Nick Fury – and not just in terms of him having two eyes.

“I’ll read something, and I’ll read it as present Nick Fury, and I’ll go, ‘He would never do this,’” said Jackson. “And I go, ‘Oh, wait a minute. He’s not in that place yet.’ The Nick Fury we meet is sort of a bureaucrat in an interesting sort of way. He hadn’t become jaded or a slave to the cynicism that we normally see.

Avengers: Infinity War Ends Domestic Box Office Run With Fourth Highest Gross Of All-Time

The record-breaking Marvel monolith Avengers: Infinity War has officially brought its four-and-a-half-month-long box office roll to an end and, in true Marvel fashion, it’s shaken up the all-time domestic charts.

After Black Panther dominated the multiplexes for the first few months of 2018, its quasi-follow up has shoveled more money into Marvel’s seemingly bottomless pockets, with Box Office Report listing the film’s final tally at $678,815,482 million, the fourth highest domestic box office total ever.

With record shattering domestic and international debut numbers, the team-up pic managed to draw in enough moviegoers to usurp long standing financial royalty such as Titanic and its own fore father, 2012’s The Avengers. Unsurprisingly, Disney occupies three of the top five spots in the all-time table, with Black Panther placing one spot above Infinity War in third.

Clark Gregg on stepping back into the shoes of Coulson for Captain Marvel

Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was a big part of the first phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but following his "death" in The Avengers, Agent Coulson has largely been absent on the big-screen, but that will all change when he returns in Captain Marvel, albeit as a younger version. Taking place in the mid-'90s, Captain Marvel opens with Carol Danvers (Brie Larson)...
