That first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice made one thing very clear: Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero throwdown is not a Marvel movie. Not in character and especially not in tone. It was the latest punch thrown in the not-so-secret war between Marvel and DC, as Warner Bros. gears up to challenge Marvel Studios at the “shared universe” game. Whether intentional or not (and we’re betting on intentional), recent statements from MCU mastermind Kevin Feige feel like a direct jab at that Batman v Superman trailer and its dark, dreary tone.

Marvel fans the world over breathed a collective sigh of relief when ABC announced that Agent Carter would return for Season 2, but Peggy may yet have some big changes on the horizon. The ass-kicking period drama will again premiere sandwiched between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episodes, but will lift off for sunny Los Angeles and a Marvel-ous new threat.
Since Avengers: Age of Ultron is already well on its way to making $1 billion worldwide, chances are strong that you’ve already seen Marvel’s latest adventure and won’t need a spoiler warning about the apparent death of a main character.

Marvel announced today that production has officially begun on next summer’s massive sequel, and they also revealed four more big additions to the cast.
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.”
