The Production Of Avengers: Infinity War And Endgame Was A Miracle And A Nightmare All At Once

Completing "The Infinity Saga" with the epic one-two punch of "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers: Endgame" is already an impressive feat. But when you learn about the development of the back-to-back sequels and the insane logistic of the production, it becomes clear how much of a miracle these two blockbuster sensations truly are, especially when you find out what a logistical nightmare it was to coordinate the production for the massive ensemble cast in each film. The recent release of "The...

Shooting The Credits Scene For Thor Was Such A Disaster That It Changed Production For The Avengers

While post-credits scenes have been a staple of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from the very beginning, it turns out the one from "Thor" may have been one of the most influential in the franchise's history. Albeit in a roundabout way, as revealed in the new book "The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe."We recently ran a review of the book, for those who may want to look into picking up a copy. But we're here to discuss a particularly interesting tidbit related to...

Why 24% Of MCU Fans Are Wrong About The Worst Phase 2 Movie

(Welcome to Survey Says, a feature where we conduct a movie-related survey for a random group of people and explain why they're completely right, completely wrong, or somewhere in-between.)The Marvel Cinematic Universe proved its concept in 2012 when "The Avengers" hit theaters. Multiple standalone franchises were able to successfully crossover into one massive, blockbuster event movie. That paved the way for more than a decade of interconnected storytelling, though a lot of pressure was applied...

Kenneth Branagh Stopped Anthony Hopkins From Retiring While Making Thor

Sir Anthony Hopkins won his second Oscar for Best Actor this year for his performance in "The Father," but it might never have happened had another knight of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire kept him from retiring ... with a role in a Marvel movie. That's right: it was Sir Kenneth Branagh, the director of the first "Thor" film, who convinced Hopkins not to retire by having him play Odin the Allfather.This is just one of the behind-the-scenes tidbits from the production history of t...

Taika Waititi Almost Missed Out On Directing Thor: Ragnarok, But Moana Saved The Day

It's hard to believe that movie directors can get caught up on little things like losing your passport, but it happens. In fact, when it happened to "Thor: Ragnarok" director Taika Waititi, he almost lost his chance to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Things could have been completely different if it weren't for his script work on Disney's "Moana." Seriously. In the new book, "The Story of Marvel Studios," authors Tara Bennett and Paul Terry shared the story of how Waititi's "Thor: Ra...

The Story Of Marvel Studios Review: A Meticulous Chronicle Of The Passion And Struggles Behind The MCU

Marvel Studios has released a whopping 25 films (and counting) with stories unfolding within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it continues to expand with a growing number of original TV shows on Disney+. But roughly 15 years ago, all of this was merely a pipe dream that began with a little movie called "Iron Man" at a time when the Marvel Comics character was anything but a household name, even with the boom of comic book movies that followed the success of "Blade" and "X-Men."

Marvel Comics Heroes We Really Want To See In The MCU

One of the many things that make the MCU so amazing is the variety of characters that it contains. What started with a shot-in-the-dark film about one of the founding members of the Avengers starring a controversial Hollywood actor jumpstarted an entire cinematic universe. "Iron Man" premiered in 2008 and became a box office and critical success, as well as the genesis of what we now know today as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Several hit movies followed, including solo outings for Captain Amer...

Fury of the Gods."The movie sees Zachary Levi sliding back into his red padded tights as Shazam, but if you've seen the 2019 film then you know he won't be coming back alone. This time he's got a whole super-powered foster family ready to join him in red, blue, purple, green, and grey. They're the Shazam Family, but with any luck, the hashtag-ready portm...

Adam Warlock vs Captain Marvel: Who Is Stronger?

Which MCU character would win in a fight, Captain Marvel or Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3's Adam Warlock? The Marvel Cinematic Universe's "most powerful" debate has raged among fans since Phase 2 rapidly began broadening the franchise's roster of super-powered characters. Though there's no firm consensus on which hero currently holds that title, the most common picks are Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch (especially after her WandaVision boost), and Brie Larson's Captain Marvel, though that may ...

The Eternals: Things Only Comic Book Fans Will Know About Kingo

MCU Spider-Man 4 Would be Different To Homecoming Trilogy

Tom Holland reveals that, should he reprise his role as Spider-Man for a fourth film after No Way Home, it would have to be very different from the Homecoming trilogy. No Way Home is set to conclude Holland's Spider-Man trilogy when it releases later this year. The film, which is one of the MCU's most hotly anticipated upcoming releases, examines the aftermath of Far From Home and the implications of Peter Parker's newfound fame now that his identity as Spider-Man has been shared with the world...

Marvel Never Asked Richard Madden To Go Blond (Or Change His Accent)

Marvel never asked actor Richard Madden to dye his hair blond or change his accent for his role in Eternals. Madden plays Ikaris, who has traditionally had blonde hair in his comic-book incarnation. Created by Jack Kirby in 1976, Ikaris is an Eternal, created by the Celestials thousands of years ago, gifted with superhuman abilities that are meant to protect and guide humanity. Ikaris' earliest appearance shows him with longish blonde locks and he is fitted with a blue-and-red costume with thre...

The 14 Greatest Action Movies Of The 21st Century

As nebulous and vague as the term "action movie" is, we're here to celebrate some of the more recent entries in the genre. With a series of 14 movies that, between them, possess enough vehicles, weapons, ammunition, and henchmen to populate a small army, they're a relatively diverse bunch. After all, the 21st century has been a watershed period for action flicks.

Wonder Woman's Most Powerful Form Came from Marvel's Mjolnir

Already one of DC's powerhouses, Wonder Woman's ultimate form was achieved thanks to her discovery of Marvel's Mjolnir. Displaced due to Thor's previous battle with Shazam, the mythological hammer lay undisturbed until Wonder Woman discovered it and learned that she was worthy of its power. While heroes and villains battled for the survival of their worlds in DC vs Marvel, this ultimate form of Wonder Woman not only showcased the best of both worlds but foreshadowed events yet to come in the le...

The Many Saints of Newark Should Have Been A Miniseries

Critics are divided on the movie The Many Saints of Newark, and many of the problems could have been avoided by using a miniseries format for the prequel. David Chase's feature film provides viewers a glimpse into the backstory of The Sopranos, showing how a young Tony Soprano was mentored by Dickie Moltisanti. Unfortunately, the format of a two-hour movie leads to many plot points feeling rushed or unsatisfying, resulting in The Many Saints of Newark's mixed reviews.Set decades before The Sopr...

Eternals Star Kumail Nanjiani Feels Conflicted About Changing His Body To Play A Superhero

Superhero movies have a tendency to come with a lot of built-in expectations and pressures, many of which can be unfair or even downright cruel to the cast and crew. One such aspect that audiences have a habit of taking for granted has to do with the physical expectations we've come to demand from actors portraying these larger-than-life characters. The toxicity that stems from unrealistic body standards is obviously something that women deal with on an often daily basis and is an issue that has...

What If...? Season 1 Episodes Ranked Worst To Best

Over the past two months, "What If...?" has proven to be the most inconsistent production in Marvel Studios' history. While Marvel's other shows, like "WandaVision" and "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier," maintained a singular tone and told one story over their runs, meaning that casual viewers could get an idea of what the series was about from a single episode, "What If...?" is an entirely different beast. For better or for worse, each episode provides a different experience. That leads to so...
