Full Lineup Of Characters For The Eternals Movie Revealed

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 currently on hold, The Eternals is shaping up to be a key part of our journey further into the cosmic side of the McU. And though few official details on the upcoming fantasy flick have been revealed, a recent report from That Hashtag Show offers much to get excited about.

As you surely know by now, writers Matthew and Ryan Firpo are taking more inspiration from Jack Kirby’s 1976 work on the series than Neil Gaiman’s version, and while the film will dive deep into a very under-explored segment of the McU timeline, there are still going to be some connections made with several pre-established characters.

But what about the new faces we’ll be meeting? Well, we’re glad you asked, as That Hashtag Show’s report outlines the various folks we’ll be getting to know. According to the outlet,

Chris Pratt in Early Talks to Star in ‘The Saint’ Movie Reboot

  • Variety
Paramount Pictures is in early negotiations with Chris Pratt to star in a movie reboot of “The Saint,” two decades after Val Kilmer’s thriller and 50 years after Roger Moore’s TV series.

Pratt’s deal is not closed. He became a worldwide star after headlining Disney-Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies and “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018) and its upcoming sequel (2019). He also starred in “Passengers” with Jennifer Lawrence, and long-running NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation.”

The studio secured a deal for book series rights in 2016 and set up a producing deal with Lorenzo di Bonaventura with the goal of starting an action franchise.

The Saint” is based on Leslie Charteris’ book series, which follow the debonair Simon Templar character first introduced in the 1928 novel “Meet the Tiger,” followed by “Enter the Saint” in 1930. Templar stole from corrupt politicians and warmongers, leaving a calling card of a stick figure with a halo.

Thor Almost Got To Wear His Ultimates Outfit In Avengers: Infinity War

Every new McU movie is an opportunity to give some old heroes a new style, and so this piece of Avengers: Infinity War concept art suggests a dark and dazzling look for Chris Hemsworth’s character that takes inspiration from Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch’s The Ultimates comic series.

The image comes courtesy of Marvel Studios’ Head of Visual Development Ryan Meinerding, who also provided a little context to his Instagram upload:

“Ultimate Thor! This was an early design pitch I proposed before we knew Thor’s hair would be short at the beginning of Infinity War. It’s always a blast to translate something as directly as possible from the comics! The awesome comic design is by the insanely talented Bryan Hitch.”

Avengers: Infinity War Directors Pay Tribute To The Late Stan Lee

Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo have been juggling the many characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for three movies now, and soon to be four, but it took the work of Stan Lee to form the basis for this ever-expanding superhero world. So when the news broke that the late great comic book creator had passed away, the filmmaking pair took a moment to remember the man who helped make the Marvel brand what it is today.

On the siblings’ Twitter account, a behind-the-scenes photo was shared featuring the two of them conversing with Lee and a few Avengers cast members. Accompanying this image was the following text:

“Thank you for filling our childhoods with such joy. You will be dearly, dearly missed…”

Pictured mid-laugh in the photo is Robert Downey Jr., who recently shared a pic of his own on social media of himself and the late publisher,

Avengers: Infinity War Keyframe Reveals Deleted Thanos Vs. Drax Fight

Drax had a grudge against Thanos way before it was cool, and in Avengers: Infinity War, the Guardians of the Galaxy regular had a couple of chances to seek vengeance on the Mad Titan, albeit always as part of a group. But as this recently shared keyframe illustration indicates, an early script even gave Dave Bautista’s character the opportunity to settle the score in a one-on-one confrontation. We wouldn’t have put our money on Drax, mind you.

Concept artist Rodney Fuentebella took to Instagram with an image of Thanos looming over the Destroyer, looking ready to do a little destroying himself. The illustrator accompanied the picture with a short explanation:

“Here is a key frame illustration I did for Avengers Infinity War! This was an early keyframe from an early script with Thanos and Drax about to battle! Enjoy!”

Avengers 4 Prelude Comic Indicates That The Trailer’s Imminent

While it’s supposed to be the job of the Marvel Prelude comics to provide a little context to each upcoming release, there’s surely only so much that these accompanying stories would be allowed to give away before Marvel Studios drops its big reveals. That’s one reason why the impending launch of the Prelude series for Avengers 4 has been taken as yet further evidence that the film’s trailer will be coming out before the end of this month.

To elaborate, the release date for the first issue of this comic has now been announced for December 5th, and since it would be unusual for the Prelude to come out before the teaser, some fans are interpreting this as another sign that we’ll be getting some footage from the Avengers: Infinity War sequel in the next couple of weeks.

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.

Stan Lee Died Before Seeing His 'Poignant' Cameo in Ralph Breaks the Internet, Directors Reveal

Marvel legend Stan Lee died earlier this week at 95 — but he’s not going away anytime soon.

Famous for his cameos in numerous Marvel films and television shows, Lee made brief but memorable appearances in movies like Deadpool and Thor.

Before his death, Lee completed cameos in several upcoming films, including one for Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet, out next week. The animated sequel to 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph features a brief appearance from an animated version of Lee, marking his first cameo since his death.

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,

Avengers 4 Trailer Could Be Arriving Even Sooner Than Expected

The Marvel movies exist in an interconnected world where the content of one film can have have major effects on the events of another, and Disney’s own promotional calendar operates in a similar manner, with the early arrival of the Dumbo teaser prompting some speculation that the first Avengers 4 trailer might also be coming a little sooner than expected.

As a fan on Twitter pointed out, the new Dumbo footage dropping leaves the rest of this month pretty open trailer-wise, and according to McU Cosmic leaker Jeremy Conrad, this may or may not signal the arrival of the Avengers 4 teaser as soon as next week:

“Well the Infinity War trailer hit early. So anything is possible.

But it’s very soon either way.”

Of course, this is just speculation for now, and Conrad’s tweet hardly sounds like the most confident of endorsements in the idea either, but like he said,

Stan Lee had already shot his Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 cameos

The pop culture world lost one of its greats this week as comic book icon Stan Lee passed away aged 95.

In addition to the wonderful characters and stories that he leaves behind, Lee will of course be fondly remembered for his many cameos throughout the Marvel movie universe, and it seems we still have more to look forward to.

Speaking to Variety to pay tribute to the Marvel legend, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige confirmed that Lee had already shot several cameos prior to his passing, with Feige stating that: “I’m not going to tell you what [cameos] specifically. But Stan always appreciated a good surprise.”

ScreenRant is reporting that both Lee’s agent and Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo have since confirmed that Lee will cameo in both Captain Marvel and Avengers 4, which will surely prove bittersweet for fans of the beloved creator.

Captain Marvel Prelude Comic Reveals What Team Cap Did After Civil War

In a way, movie tie-in comics aren’t what they used to be, but the House of Ideas have kept the tradition alive in recent years with adaptations and preludes alike. To the surprise of few, the first film to lead the Marvel Studios charge in 2019, Captain Marvel, has already been granted similar treatment.

Truth be told, I more so expected this book to be about Carol Danvers herself due to her solo flick taking place during the 1990’s, but the publisher instead opted to weave it into the grand scheme of things by showing us the aftermath of the game-changing Captain America: Civil War. Actually, Avengers: Infinity War‘s equivalent did do something similar, but it’s nice to be granted more pieces of the puzzle.

To be more specific, the oddly titled and freshly released Marvel’s Captain Marvel Prelude #1 has offered insight into just what Steve Rogers,

Samuel L. Jackson Thanks Stan Lee In Moving Tribute Message

It’s been a tough week for Marvel fans the world over as the legend that was Stan Lee passed away on Monday, at the grand age of 95. Twitter has been awash with comic book creators, movie stars and fans paying their respects to the great man whose work touched so many of our lives. And Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson, is among them, penning a beautifully-put tribute to Lee.

“Thank you @TheRealStanLee,” Jackson wrote,” for the escape from this world & great joy inhabiting the ones you created!! You made so many believe in the good, the heroic, the villainous, the exciting, most of all, you were giving & gracious to us all. Rip.”

Of course, Jackson has the honor of playing one of Lee’s creations in the indefatigable S.H.I.E.L.D. director, though strictly speaking, the McU’s Nick Fury is based on the Ultimate version,

Sebastian Stan says he’s unsure if Winter Soldier is in Avengers 4

Actor Sebastian Stan says that he doesn’t know if he will be appearing in Avengers 4.

You would normally assume an actor would know if he will be performing in a film or not but with the way Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 were filmed, the situation is apparently not that clear.

Infinity War and Avengers 4 were filmed virtually back to back and this appears to be why Bucky Barnes actor Sebastian Stan says he doesn’t know if he is in the next Avengers film or not. Either that or he is just acting coy. Speaking to Collider, he said:

“When I was shooting anything, nobody ever told me what was part one or part two. The truth is, I don’t even know if I’m in [Avengers 4]. What I shot was in part one. And anything that I shot may or may not have been in part one

Why Nick Fury Never Called Captain Marvel Before Avengers: Infinity War

The McU has faced more than its share of world-threatening dangers over the years, and while Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and associates have usually managed to make things right, there’ve been several close calls, raising the question of why Nick Fury has been sitting on what might be his biggest trump card for the last couple of decades. We’re of course referring to Carol Danvers, who’s set to make her big screen debut in the next year’s Captain Marvel and will be joined by a de-aged Fury in the recently reported year of 1995.

Despite knowing about Brie Larson’s character all this time, Fury only chose to call on the services of the franchise’s most powerful hero to date in this year’s Avengers: Infinity War, and according to author Will Corona Pilgrim, the former S.H.I.E.L.D. director had good reason

Avengers 4 Trailer Said To Drop Any Time After Ralph Breaks The Internet

In last week’s online Q&A, Avengers 4 co-director Joe Russo mentioned that we “may or may not” be seeing the film’s all-important first trailer before the year is out, but much of the internet seems to be sticking to their forecast that the teaser will be dropping before the end of this month.

Trailer insider Anton Volkov, for instance, predicted a couple of days ago that the trailer is set to arrive in two weeks, and with the recent confirmation that the next Dumbo promo is coming out in the next week, Volkov sees no reason to change his mind, tweeting:

“Toy Story this week, Dumbo end of this/early next…. You all know what’s next up”

As for Russo’s hint that we may have to wait until 2019, the TrailerTrack Twitter account had some blunt words to say on the matter:

“Oh, no way. Will be before end of year,
