While the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is partying together on the set of Captain America: Civil War, the Guardians of the Galaxy must be feeling a little lonely. While they haven’t yet been integrated into the larger Marvel universe, director James Gunn is ready to expand the Guardians universe. During a Periscope chat with fans yesterday, Gunn revealed that he’s already in talks with an actor about joining Guardians of the Galaxy 2 for a major new role, a new Guardian.
Captain America: Civil War continues to film outdoors in Atlanta, which is currently standing in for the fictional African nation of Wakanda, home to the Black Panther. We brought you a first look at Frank Grillo as Crossbones, the new villain, and today you can get a look at Crossbones and Captain America in a major fight scene, including some video from the set!
Captain America: Civil War has been filming on the streets of Atlanta this month with nothing too exciting to report so far from the star-studded cast. That’s about to change, as reports have come in that yesterday’s scenes include a major funeral set at a downtown church. So, which Marvel character is about to bite the big one?
Avengers: Infinity War, the two-part conclusion to the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, promises to be one of the biggest movie experiences in recent memory. And to make it even bigger, Marvel and Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo have announced that both installments of the finale will be shot entirely in IMAX, a first for a Hollywood feature film.
With Avengers: Age of Ultron out of the way (but, based on the heated debates online, not entirely out of people’s minds), Marvel has turned their attention to that other superhero movie coming out this summer. A little movie called Ant-Man (we promise you, that is not the last size-related pun). Today, we have our first look at the film’s final poster, which brings the whole cast together to stare at things way off in the distance.
Late last year, Idris Elba let slip that he and Tom Hiddleston filmed Avengers 2 cameos in a scene with Chris Hemsworth as Thor. But, if you've seen the movie, you've noticed that Tom Hiddleston and Loki are nowhere to be found. What gives? Director Joss Whedon says that the scene they filmed just “didn’t play.”
The Batman vs. Superman trailer came and went, and we still didn't get a great look at Ben Affleck in the traditional Batman costume (we’ll leave that armored suit out of this). We’ve all seen that black and white promo shot, but what does Batfleck look like in clear, full color? Today, we have that answer.
Beyond the recent Batman vs. Superman trailer, we still don't know a lot about the upcoming superhero rumble. Particularly, why are Superman and Batman even fighting each other? It might seem weird to seek superhero movie guidance from an astrophysicist, but when that astrophysicist is Neil deGrasse Tyson, whose voice you heard in the aforementioned trailer, you take notice. Especially when he starts describing the Batman vs. Superman plot and the main crux of the beef between these two superheroes.
Today marks the first day of filming on X-Men: Apocalypse and to celebrate the beginning of a new X-Men adventure, director Bryan Singer revealed --- and then removed --- a first look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as your favorite teleporting mutant, Nightcrawler. BAMF!
While Marvel and DC continue to build their cinematic universes, another comic company is getting into the game. Sony Pictures has announced a deal to build a Valiant Cinematic Universe, starting with Bloodshot, a comic adaptation to be directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski (John Wick) that will eventually lead to the crossover film Harbinger Wars.
