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."

SCOTT GALLOWAY: 'Squid Game' is a lesson. Streaming services are in a race to the top, and some are getting left behind.

Avengers Director Joe Russo Thinks Indie Movies Don't Have A Future In Theaters

Will independent films ever hold the same theatrical draw that they did before the pandemic? Joe Russo doesn't seem to think so. Russo co-directed "Avengers: Endgame," the second highest-grossing movie of all time, along with three other MCU blockbusters in the 2010s. In terms of sheer box office dominance, if nothing else, some have argued that he and his brother Anthony Russo were the filmmakers who defined the decade, for better or for worse. However, his last movie, "Cherry," was a bit more ...

When Hollywood Is For Sale: What Media Mergers Mean For Movie Lovers

For those who have any interest in media, be it from Hollywood's perspective or purely from a business side of things, it is no secret that media consolidation has been a big thing in recent years. This, arguably, hit its apex of public interest when Disney completed its buyout of the majority of Fox's media assets in 2019. But, in less flashy ways for the general public, this is a trend that has only ramped up in recent years, especially in 2021. While it might not make for sexy bar talk, this ...

NASA's 'Armageddon'-style Asteroid Deflection Mission Takes Off Next Month

NASA has a launch date for that most Hollywood of missions, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test, which is basically a dry run of the movie "Armageddon."

The DART mission, managed by the Planetary Defense Coordination Office (!), involves sending a pair of satellites out to a relatively nea...

Apple's Foundation Has An 8 Season Plan

Five decades after Hollywood first set its sights on adapting Isaac Asimov's classic science fiction novel series "Foundation" for the screen, it's about to debut as an AppleTV+ streaming series. David S. Goyer ("Batman Begins") is the man who finally figured out a way to tell this story, which was famously dense on the page. (The "Foundation" novels make the often-brainy "Star Trek" feel like the more action-oriented "Star Wars" franchise.) There's so much story crammed into Asimov's novels tha...
