Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled for May 4, 2018, and promises to be a massive, epic, worthy “finale” for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first three chapters. By now, the MCU has grown to encompass dozens of heroes—meaning there are plenty of candidates to bite the dust in the epic battle with Thanos. And people will die: The film is loosely based on the Infinity Gauntlet comic book, which was one of the biggest events ever and killed off pretty much every one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes at different points along the way. Who will Marvel Studios choose to eat it? Here’s our take on the candidates most likely to not survive Marvel’s blockbuster war: (POTENTIAL SPOILERS!) Continue reading
Though he’s knee-deep in post-production on the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, director James Gunn has revealed on Twitter that he spoke to the people at Marvel Studios about another movie idea for the MCU, specifically one for the vigilante Moon Knight. When asked if he could put the character in his upcoming sequel due to his lunar moniker, Gunn replied:
Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark will have a familiar face from the Iron Man movies with him when he appears in Spider-Man: Homecoming, as Variety reports that The Jungle Book director Jon Favreau will reprise the role of Happy Hogan in the Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures film. Favreau, of course, also directed the first two Iron Man movies. Continue reading
Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange movie has already experienced its fair share of controversy over the casting of Tilda Swinton as Strange’s mentor, The Ancient One, but considering how much more socially conscious we’ve all become since the comic was originally written (we haven’t solved racism or anything yet, but things have clearly improved since the ’60s), there are going to have to be some major changes to the source material in order for the film to work for 2016 audiences.

Variety is reporting that Robert Downey Jr. will reprise the role of Tony Stark in Sony and Marvel’s upcoming co-production of Spider-Man: Homecoming. The size of his role in this film has not been revealed yet, so Tony’s appearance could be anything from a cameo to a larger supporting role. At this point we’re unsure whether he’ll show up as just Tony Stark or if he’ll actually don the Iron Man armor and suit up to help Spidey battle a bad guy (or two). Continue reading
It looks like Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming is about to get even more awesome with the possible inclusion of Michael Keaton as the villain in the film. The news comes from Variety, who says that the actor is in early talks to join the Jon Watts-directed film. If cast, he will join Tom Holland as Spider-Man, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Zendaya in a mystery role.
It would be pretty damn cool to see Keaton in another superhero film. We don’t know exactly who he would be playing, but it was recently rumored that one of the villains would be Vulture. After starring in Birdman, he could conceivably be cast as Vulture. So let the speculation begin!
When Marvel Studios held the world premiere of Captain America: Civil War, among those heroes that sided with the star-spangled man was Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man. On the “blue carpet” for the film, director Peyton Reed was asked about the tiny hero’s own upcoming sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and offered a giant-sized teaser for what to expect. (It’s a pun – get it?) Continue reading
