James Gunn Answers the Most Important Question: Does ‘The Suicide Squad’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

The most important question anyone can ask about a film right now is, “Does it have a post-credits scene?” Who cares about themes, or story, or cinematography? We only want to know if there will be a post-credits scene to set up the next movie, damn it! And then we want to know if that next movie will have a post-credits scene, too! “Engage with art”? No thanks! Give us post-credits scene info. For instance: The Suicide Squad is opening this summer, and the number one question on everyone’s min...

‘Black Widow’ Early Buzz: Marvel Delivers on Action, Florence Pugh Hailed as MVP

Scarlett Johansson made her debut as Natasha Romanoff, AKA Black Widow, all the way back in 2010’s Iron Man 2.

And it’s finally here. Black Widow is Johansson’s long-awaited solo movie, following the fallen Avenger in a solo adventure between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.

Roxxon Explained: Behind the Sinister Marvel Organization Teased in ‘Loki’

Minor spoilers for Loki episode two follow. You might have noticed their flashing neon signs throughout Loki. Specifically, the signs for Roxxcart, the big-box store where thousands of people are taking refuge from a coming hurricane and where Loki and the Time Variance Authority agents descend on a mission in episode two of the Disney+ Marvel series. But Roxxcart and its neo-futuristic signage is more than just a chance for Loki to flex its Blade Runner influences — it’s a reference to Roxxon,...

The big blockbuster sequel/reboot will arrive in theaters and on HBO Max in August and if you’re wondering how this movie may stand out from the previous and much-maligned film, James Gunn has the perfect way to describe the movie: “It’s a war-caper movie with shitty supervillains.” Get a look at a couple new The Suicide Squad images below.

‘The Suicide Squad’ is “Neither a Sequel Nor a Reboot,” According to John Cena

The Suicide Squad is James Gunn‘s follow-up to David Ayer’s 2016 superhero movie Suicide Squad. But is it a sequel? A reboot? Or something else entirely? The Suicide Squad star John Cena, who is soon set to star in his own HBO Max spin-off series based on his Peacemaker character, has a really vague answer to those questions. In an interview with The Observer, Cena spoke about where The Suicide Squad actually fits in the messed-up DC Extended Universe timeline. And…he doesn’t really have a c...

‘Loki’ is Basically Marvel’s Version of ‘Doctor Who’ – And That Rules, Actually

Do you remember how the feverish speculation surrounding the next lead in the legendary science fiction series Doctor Who would always, inevitably land on Tom Hiddleston? Rallying cries of “Tom Hiddleston as the 12th Doctor!” or “Tom Hiddleston should be the 13th Doctor!” frequently circulated the internet, as did fan art that depicted the Avengers star in front of the TARDIS, that blue box in which the Doctor traveled in time and space. Well, fans kind of got their wish with Loki, the new Marv...

The ‘Loki’ Credits May Have Accidentally Revealed a Pretty Big Spoiler

Major spoilers follow for the second episode of Loki. The second episode of Loki dropped a pretty major bomb on us (literally and figuratively), with the reveal of the fugitive Loki Variant who is wreaking havoc across the Sacred Timeline. Our Loki Variant (Tom Hiddleston) has a pretty good idea of who this fugitive is when he comes face-to-face with them, but are they really exactly who they appear to be?

The Second Episode of ‘Loki’ Features an Epic Marvel Standoff That Shakes Time Itself

Things are moving along quickly for Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and the TVA! There’s some investigative work going on, some travel through time (of course), and a major tête-à-tête that sets off a big ol’ disaster that will keep things busy for Loki’s next four episodes. Even though the second episode moves quickly, the element that makes it more than a wacky time travel show (so many timelines, so many variants) is Loki himself. That’s why this Disney+ series is such a compelling show — Loki is a ch...

How ‘Black Widow’ Avoids Tired Tropes Between Natasha and Yelena, According to Scarlett Johansson

The hyper-sexualization of women is not a new or foreign concept, especially in Hollywood. However, actresses are speaking up more on the matter and putting their foot down in true superhero fashion since the 2018 #MeToo movement. Most recently, Scarlett Johansson has opened up about the depiction of her character in Marvel’s upcoming film Black Widow and how she hopes the shift in perception will be a positive change.

Millennium’s Red Sonja cast may have just added another actor who has previously played in the Marvel Studios sandbox. Hannah John-Kamen, who played the mysterious villain Ghost in 2019’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, is starring in the sword-and-sandal fantasy epic that’s been mired in development hell for years, and now it appears that Thor and Thor: The Dark World actress Jaimie Alexander may be joining her in a whole different type of comic book movie.

‘Spider-Man 4’ Fight Animatic Shows Off an Action Scene From Sam Raimi’s Abandoned Sequel

The year was 2010. Casting news was ramping up about Spider-Man 4, the fourth installment of director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man film series for Sony Pictures. John Malkovich was tapped to play The Vulture, and Anne Hathaway was in talks to play Felicia Hardy – who, in this iteration, would not have been the catsuit-wearing thief Black Cat, but would instead be the daughter of The Vulture known as The Vulturess. That movie came crashing down and Sony ultimately moved on to Marc Webb’s The Amazing S...

New ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Logo Video Teases an ‘Into the Spider-Verse’ Connection

Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe appears to be extremely interested in the idea of the multiverse: a series of separate, distinct universes running parallel to one another. Some characters have the ability to jump in and out of those universes, and before we see Doctor Strange grapple with the Multiverse of Madness next year, Spider-Man: No Way Home is primed to take audiences into that chaos by re-introducing familiar heroes and villains from previous iterations of Spider-Man movies in...

Director Andy Muschietti recently teased The Dark Knight’s suit from the set of the DC Comics movie, and now he’s given the Crimson Comet the same courtesy, revealing a tease of the Flash movie costume, including a revised lightning logo.

Marvel Studios TV Shows Are Produced More Like Feature Films, But Could That Soon Change?

Since the new Marvel Studios TV shows being produced for Disney+ are so closely tied to the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it only makes sense that the shows are being crafted as if they were feature films. At least that’s how they’re being treated behind the scenes with a process that removes one key element of television production. Whenever a TV show is made, there’s typically a role called a showrunner. This position acts much in the same way that a director and producer would on ...

How ‘Loki’ Expands on the Rules of Time Travel From ‘Avengers Endgame’

Avengers: Endgame introduced time travel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it required a whole exposition-filled conversation for fans who may have been expecting it to work as they’ve seen in other franchises like Back to the Future and Star Trek. Now Loki has come along and made things even more complicated by expanding on those rules. Loki head writer Michael Waldron recently discussed how he and the show’s writing staff built on those rules and had to define a whole new set of them by...

‘Black Widow’ is Similar to ‘Captain America: Winter Soldier’, According to Director Cate Shortland

For myself and many others, 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a high point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The way that film balances typical Marvel action sequences and solid performances with paying lip service to weighty themes about government, surveillance, and betrayal makes it stand out, but the dynamic, complicated relationship between old pals Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes is the film’s beating heart. If you liked that movie, we have good news. In a new interview about Bl...
