ant-man-test-footage1

Marvel Studios and director Edgar Wright have both been pretty mum about the reasons for why they ended up parting ways on the Ant-Man movie, but Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige did open up a bit to The Guardian last week to try to quash some of the scuttlebutt about Wright's vision being too out-there for Marvel.

Untitled-1

 

The following was authored by Megan Margulies, granddaughter of the late Captain America co-creator Joe Simon.

Today Marvel Studios releases Captain America: The Winter Soldier. These movies are not only a cause for celebration by comic book fans, but also for the artists who created the superhero decades ago. In 1941, Jack Kirby and my grandfather, Joe Simon, dreamt of Captain America in an attempt to keep their heads above the turbulent waters of the comic book industry. Much to their surprise and joy, the character went on to receive worldwide fame.

Gay Punchlines, LGBT Visibility and Marvel Studios’ One-Shot ‘All Hail The King’

Untitled-1

All Hail The King is a short movie -- a "one shot," as Marvel calls them -- about what happened to Iron Man 3 character the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) after he went to prison, written and directed by Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce. It's light, it's funny, there are some good lines and a neat twist. For the most part, I liked it.

One thing left a bad taste in my mouth.

If you haven't watched the Marvel one-shot/short movie All Hail The King, released a supplemental feature with Thor: The Dark World on Blu-ray/DVD, and you haven't watched Iron Man 3, and you want to see either of them unspoiled, skip the rest of this post. That's your spoiler warning.

Untitled-1

 

Back in November Marvel Studios announced a deal to make five TV shows for Netflix; four solo series based on the Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage characters, and a Defenders series that brings them all together.

Filming on the first of these, Daredevil, begins in July in New York City. No casting announcements have been made, but they're sure to come soon, and some fans see this as an opportunity to make a change to one character. They've created a petition asking that an Asian American actor be cast as Iron Fist.

Describing Stan Lee as "the original genius behind Marvel Comics and most of the superheroes you've ever loved or watched on the big screen" probably isn't doing the 91-year-old comic book veteran any favors as he tries, seemingly, to rehabilitate his reputation for glory-hogging in a wide-ranging conversation to be published in this Friday's new issue of Playboy. Indeed, the (in)famously self-promoting Lee uses the interview to deliberately undermine the public perception -- one he worked hard to create, as recently as last year with his reality show Fangasm -- that he's a tremendously wealthy comic book mogul primarily responsible for the success of some of Marvel Comics' most iconic -- and profitable -- superhero characters.

Excellent ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Poster is as Fresh as the Trailer

Untitled-1

 

Marvel Studios has released the first one-sheet poster for Guardians of the Galaxy, invoking imagery of the pulp sci-fi era with a shot of the titular heroes set against a painted otherworldly vista. The accompanying tagline speaks to the film's tone, which the poster and trailer both indicate walks the line between pure adventure and absurd comedy, while the rest of the text tells the observer, "Hey, we know you've no f***ing idea who these characters are, but we made these other movies you like so just trust us."
