This isn’t exactly surprising news, since it’s been speculated for some time now that Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy might be making X-Men: Apocalypse their last outing with the franchise. Lawrence and Fassbender in particular are in increasingly high demand (and they aren’t particularly cheap, either), so it makes sense that either or both of them wouldn’t want to remain tied to the franchise for much longer. Lawrence has confirmed as much in a new interview, putting the speculation to rest once and for all.

For a long time it seemed like the Deadpool movie could never happen. The character's first appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine completely mis-read Deadpool's appeal despite the seemingly perfect casing of Ryan Reynolds. When Reynolds made his DC with the Green Lantern movie for Warner Bros., it seemed unlikely that Deadpool would ever get back in track.
The canny decision to leak some test footage back in July of last year for a Deadpool movie treatment that relies heavily on CGI to embrace the character's Looney Tunes cartoonishness caused enough of a stir that Deadpool was suddenly alive again, with Reynolds still attached to star. Now we have evidence from the cast that the movie has entered into production, which means it is really, actually happening.
Avengers 2 doesn't open for another few weeks, but deep inside Marvel headquarters they've already begun turning their attention to the next big movie: Captain America: Civil War. Frequently referred to as Avengers 2.5 because of the sheer amount of superheroes packed into this one film — Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon, Black Panther, Spider-Man and Hawkeye are all confirmed to star — the third Captain America movie might be the biggest superhero film yet. As Marvel gets ready to begin filming, a casting call has given us our first look at the film's plot.
Though she was hinted at during Toy Soul late last year, Hot Toys officially revealed the Avengers: Age of Ultron Black Widow figure today. With a new 'do, uniform, weapons and more, Black Widow has never looked better. Well, except in her Captain America: The Winter Solider form, which had the exact same head sculpt.
Have you had your fill of Avengers: Age of Ultron collectibles yet? No? Good, because Hot Toys has even more coming to satisfy your chibi-loving needs. The new Avengers: Age of Ultron Cosbaby figures will cute-ify the action heroes and big, bad villains of the upcoming movie, but even the anime influence can't make Ultron adorable. It's unpossible.
Folks, if you're like me, you've been waiting for the day you can finally go down to the store and bring home your very own Hulkbuster. That day may be arriving sooner than you think. Though there are going to be plenty of smaller, less imposing Hulkbusters made available through various manufacturers, only one will be up to snuff in busting actual Hulks.
Nobody — and we mean nobody — does Comic-Con quite like Marvel. In 2006 Marvel Studios held their first ever Comic-Con panel (announcing the Captain America and Thor movies) and has returned every year since. They've ruled the roost with dynamic, exciting presentations that mix showmanship with big announcements. But, that's all about to change. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn confirmed last night that, for the first time in nine years, Marvel Studios is skipping Comic-Con.
Captain America: Civil War is gearing up to head into production, and going off of what we know about the upcoming sequel, as well as a few casting announcements, this is going to be a pretty different Cap movie. Not only will it include Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, but it’s also the MCU debut of the new Spider-Man. And now we can add another superhero to that list: Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye has been confirmed to join in on the action.
This week sees the release of new Lego Marvel Super Hero sets tying into Avengers: Age of Ultron. While we're still waiting for the SHIELD Helicarrier to arrive, the series did drop a quinjet, a Hulkbuster, and a mini-Avengers Tower, among others, onto store shelves. Having been out of the Lego game for almost two decades, these were the sets that were going to bring me back into the fold. It was mighty hard to resist the quinjet set, but if there's one thing my house is missing, and that I could no longer live without, it's an Avengers Tower.
If you’re a Marvel fan and preparing for Avengers: Age of Ultron, chances are you’re thinking now is a good time to start revisiting the MCU movies — in order, obviously — before May 1. AMC and Regal are here to help you out with that with their massive Marvel movie marathon, all leading up to the premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Here’s the thing, though: you’ll be watching every one of these movies in one sitting, so you should probably bring one of those donut-shaped butt pillows.
