Nick Fury And Maria Hill Were Involved In The Captain America: Civil War Prison Break

Though the new Captain Marvel Prelude comic is supposed to be providing the context for Carol Danvers’ big screen debut next year, it certainly feels like the first issue has offered more insights and fueled more speculation on previous McU entries, including one little piece of info on the conclusion of Captain America: Civil War.

So far, the series has been recalling events from well after the ‘90s action of Captain Marvel, following Nick Fury and Maria Hill in the three-year gap between their appearances in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Avengers: Infinity War. In particular, we learn details of their behind-the-scenes involvement in the plot of Civil War, including the revelation that this pair of former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents had a hand in helping their old friend Steve Rogers break into The Raft in order to free Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye and Ant-Man after their arrest.

New Marvel Comic Suggests Ultron May Return To The McU

Out of the three Avengers movies we’ve seen so far, Avengers: Age of Ultron is easily the runt of the litter, not necessarily in terms of quality, but definitely in terms of its relevance to the overarching stories of the McU.

Yes, the film introduced a couple of important characters, and the battle in Sokovia would later serve as an excuse for the events of Captain America: Civil War, but the central conflict between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Ultron just doesn’t feel like as pivotal a moment in the franchise’s history as their clashes with Loki or Thanos. Perhaps a key difference is that unlike his fellow Avengers villains, Ultron’s presence is entirely confined to this one movie, but with the new Captain Marvel Prelude comic, some fans feel that Marvel could be prepping us for the character’s return.

Brian Tyler (‘Crazy Rich Asians’ composer) on creating a timeless score that had ‘the feeling of a saga’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
Composer Brian Tyler wanted his score for “Crazy Rich Asians” to be “at its core emotional,” while at the same time feeling like “music from an older era.” So rather than compose as if for a “modern romantic comedy, the approach was to do music that was out of time.” Thus, the resulting score sounded like something that could have been recorded “in 1940.” Watch our exclusive video interview above.

Marvel Reveals Nick Fury Tried To Reunite The Avengers After Captain America: Civil War

The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people to see if they could become something more. To see if they could work together when we needed them to fight the battles we never could. Unfortunately though, after the falling out of Captain America: Civil War, it seems that everyone had better things to do, with the new Captain Marvel Prelude comic showing Nick Fury and Maria Hill trying and failing to bring the old gang back together.

The new series is set to provide a little context on the distress call sent by Samuel L. Jackson’s character in the post-credits of Avengers: Infinity War, filling in the three-year gap between Fury and Hill’s appearances in Avengers: Age of Ultron and the Russo Brothers’ latest. And according to a few panels, the pair tried talking Tony Stark and Steve Rogers into putting their spat aside for the sake of the team,

Stan Lee Once Surprised Robert Downey Jr. At His 50th Birthday

Following Stan Lee‘s tragic death on Monday at the age of 95, those who knew him or were lucky enough to get to meet him have been sharing stories online that remind us how kind, generous and just generally how much fun he was as a person. Case in point, this anecdote which recalls how Lee surprised Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr,. at his birthday party a few years ago.

According to Lee’s longtime manager Brad Herman, the comic book legend was invited to Downey Jr.’s big 50th birthday bash but couldn’t make it. So he sent a note to the Tony Stark actor on – what else? – Spider-Man stationary. In typical Stan style, the note read: “May Destiny grant you good health and much time. You deserve so much more than this simple rhyme.” He signed off with his classic catchphrase: “Excelsior.”

Fantastic Beasts: If Nagini Looks Familiar, You Might Know Her From These Blockbusters

Hardcore Potterhead or not, you've probably heard the news that in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Voldemort's pet snake Nagini is actually a Maledictus, that is, a cursed witch who turns into an animal. It's a secret J.K. Rowling has kept for a whopping 20 years, and the reveal sparked controversy among fans who found it problematic for an Asian woman, South Korean actress Claudia Kim, to play the Dark Lord's pet snake. The actress herself defended her casting and hopes fans will see a nuanced side to Nagini once they watch the movie - for all we know, the complexity of her character could even extend to her being Voldemort's mother!

Stan Lee’s Final Year Was Full Of Betrayal, Chaos And Unhappiness

As the tributes flood in for the departed Stan Lee, it’s important to remember that while the great man left us a magnificent and inspiring legacy of superheroism, the last year of his life was pockmarked by unnecessary drama and sinister figures. I’ve been writing about Lee’s problems for a while now, and together, they make for a series of increasingly strange and worrying stories that had many concerned for the wellbeing of the comic book legend.

They began last summer when Joan, his wife of seven decades died. Sensing vulnerability, the vultures swooped in and began picking at his fortune and exploiting his fame. There’d been repeated reports of power struggles over who will care for Lee, with those responsible ending up controlling his financial affairs. Into this came florist turned publicist Jerry Olivarez, Lee’s longtime road manager Max Anderson and memorabilia dealer Keya Morgan

Stan Lee Wanted To Make More Marvel Cameos Before He Died

Few people have a better understanding of Stan Lee’s immense contributions to comic book history than the man who took over his role as Marvel Comics Eic, Roy Thomas. So when the news broke earlier this week of the writer’s passing, it figures that Lee’s old friend and colleague had some reverent words to say about the legend, while also recalling his continued enthusiasm for his patented Marvel movie cameos.

Speaking to Bleeding Cool, Thomas reminisced about Lee’s final days, saying that he was still keen to return to the big screen so long as it didn’t create too many problems:

“At that time, it was obvious that he lacked much of the old Stan Lee energy that everybody had got to know at conventions and in movie cameos, but when I asked him about future cameos, he expressed a real interest in making them,

Kevin Feige Teases Stan Lee Surprises In Upcoming Marvel Studios Movies

Stan Lee’s passing was a sad day for all. Over the last 50 years, his groundbreaking comic book work in the 1960s and beyond dominated the genre and went a long way to making Marvel Comics what it is today, which itself spawned the outrageously successful and critically beloved Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as the X-Men franchise and myriad other standalone features.

And though those films might have spanned multiple planets and eras, there’s been one constant throughout all of them: a cheeky and often humorous cameo by Lee himself. In fact, he became so notorious for popping up that he made an appearance in the PlayStation 4 smash Marvel’s Spider-Man and, even more unexpectedly, in the DC film Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.

Though you’d expect these to finish now, it’s been widely reported that Marvel Studios (presumably conscious of Lee’s age) shoot

Avengers 4 Star Sebastian Stan Shares His Memories Of Stan Lee

As the world continues to process the news of Stan Lee’s passing, many McU regulars have offered their heartfelt thoughts and reflections on the man who helped make Marvel what it is today. Among these tributes is one from Sebastian Stan, who’s had a decades-spanning journey through this comic book universe in the role of Bucky Barnes.

Speaking to Collider, the star shared a quick memory from the times he met Lee in person.

“I only met him a few times,” Stan said. “I never got a full one-on-one with him but he was always like, ‘Remember, Bucky’s one of the good ones. Bucky’s a good guy.’”

Though Lee himself wasn’t involved in the creation of Captain America’s oldest friend, his work as a writer proved fundamental in shaping the universe the character now occupies.

Which Marvel hero has shown up in more films than any of the Avengers or the X-Men? That’s right, it’s the one and only Stan Lee, who’d been a fixture of nearly every production from the House of Ideas for the past two decades. Whether it was released by Disney, Fox or Sony, the industry legend was always welcome to appear for a cameo in the latest film based on the franchise that he gave birth to, and nearly every single time he popped up, it was a treat for fans.

Known primarily for creating such iconic characters as Spider-Man, Hulk, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four and so many other great Marvel heroes and villains, Lee also became the undisputed king of cameos in his lifetime.

Kevin Feige Teases Future Stan Lee Cameos

Even among filmgoers who’ve never touched a comic book, Stan Lee is still a recognizable figure for his traditional Marvel movie cameos. And though the legendary writer is no longer with us, you can expect to see him at least a couple more times on our screens in upcoming McU releases like Captain Marvel and Avengers 4.

In fact, with directors Anthony and Joe Russo explaining earlier this year that Lee’s cameos were filmed in bulk, there’s no telling how many more McU appearances the late publisher might still have to go. In an interview with Variety, however, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige thought it best that Lee’s future screen outings stayed a mystery for the time being:

“I’m not going to tell you what specifically, but Stan always appreciated a good surprise.”

Feige offered much the same line when he spoke to THR, suggesting that

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Will Not Feature A Stan Lee Cameo

Fans are still reeling from the sad news that legendary Marvel creator Stan Lee passed away yesterday at the grand age of 95. It’ll be hard to come to terms with the fact that we won’t see Stan The Man show up for a welcome cameo in Marvel movies in the future, but thankfully, Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has suggested that Lee already filmed a few cameos for next year’s McU outings which we can look forward to.

However, don’t expect to see Lee show up in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The pic based on the mutant super-team co-created by Stan won’t feature the customary cameo from the Marvel icon, according to EW, as the tale of Jean Grey’s descent into the dangerous Dark Phoenix entity will be “taking a more grounded, gritty approach.”

Kevin Feige Recalls His First Time Meeting Stan Lee On X-Men Set

Kevin Feige has a long history of bringing Marvel comics to the screen that goes back beyond the launch of the McU to his work as associate producer on 2000’s X-Men. It’s here that the Marvel Studios head met the man who helped lay the foundations for so much of the work Feige would go on to do, and in an interview with Deadline, he reflected on this first encounter with the late Stan Lee.

The original X-Men movie would kick off the tradition of Lee getting cameos in every major Marvel film, and when Feige had his first meeting with the legendary writer on the set, he saw an energy in the figure that would stay in him right up until his final days.

“Every meeting with Stan Lee was better than the last,” Feige told Deadline. “That’s been true from the first time I met him

Joss Whedon Offers His Thanks To The Late Stan Lee

Writer-director Joss Whedon’s work on 2012’s The Avengers and 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron have served as pivotal chapters in the formation and continuation of the McU, but without Stan Lee helping to lay the groundwork in the comic books, it’s hard to imagine this cinematic universe existing in the first place.

So when the news recently broke that the renowned comic book creator had sadly passed away, it’s only natural that Whedon soon took to Twitter to offer his thanks in a message that also reflects on Lee’s lasting legacy:

“Stan Lee created a universe where, if a character was beloved enough, they could never really die.

Now That’S thinking ahead.

Thanks for so much of my life. You’ll never not be in it.”

Here’s Every Single Stan Lee Marvel Cameo
Stan Lee was a God to fans of comic books and superhero movies around the world, and many viewed Lee’s short-but-sweet cameos as the best parts of Marvel films.

Lee made his first cameo nearly 30 years ago in the TV movie, as a jury member in “David” Banner’s (Hulk’s alter-ego) imagined trial.

Avengers 4 Fan Art Imagines Katherine Langford As The Next Hawkeye

Last Friday brought the surprise announcement that Katherine Langford had been added to the cast of Avengers 4 during the recent reshoots in an unspecified role. As the 13 Reasons Why actress is an upcoming star, it seems likely that Marvel have booked her in for the long run and her part in this massive production is just the planned first of many. So, with that in mind, who could she be playing?

Well, one common possibility that fans are discussing is that Langford might have been cast as Kate Bishop, Clint Barton’s apprentice and the third Hawkeye. We already know that Emma Fuhrmann has been cast as an older Cassie Lang/Stature in Avengers 4, so it makes sense that another of the Young Avengers would be introduced into the McU. Kevin Feige has also said that the next generation of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will be seeded in the next few movies.
