‘Shang-Chi’ Featurette: How the Latest MCU Movie is Tied to the First ‘Iron Man’

One of the greatest advantages Marvel has over its competition is a built-in sense of history and continuity. Only Fox’s now-defunct X-Men franchise even came close to matching the MCU in terms of length, but fans have long complained about the fast-and-loose approach to maintaining continuity in those movies led to many a recasting and narrative dead-end. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is Marvel’s next installment and #ItsAllConnected is clearly at the forefront of this latest featu...

‘Loki’ Head Writer Explains How Marvel’s Multiverse Works

This post contains spoilers for Loki season 1. With Phase 4 of the MCU in full swing, things are getting more complicated by the day. Back in the simpler times, all our worries boiled down to alien invasions and the occasional inter-dimensional cosmic entity. But ever since Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) solved time travel, things have gotten exponentially weirder and much more confusing. Loki took that about 20 steps further by introducing the idea of the multiverse. The Time Variance Authorit...

Long ago, in the faraway time of 2017, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy got its long-awaited sequel.

‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ Originally Ended With Cap Fighting a Giant Nazi Robot

Ten years ago, Captain America made his MCU debut with his pinstripe torso and a star on his chest. The world’s first superhero, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) had heart long before he got the physical ability to fight for justice, which made him the perfect person to lead the Avengers. But way before universe-shattering calamities like Thanos’ infinity gauntlet or even aliens attacking Earth, Cap was dealing with manageable, small-time evil — ya know, like Nazis.

‘Fear Street’ Director Wants to Create a Horror Cinematic Universe to Rival the MCU

Have you heard? Shared universes are all the rage these days and no amount of extremely public failures by studios not named Marvel are going to deter anyone from achieving that fabled and very trendy golden goose.
