Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige already has one of the most impressive resumes in Hollywood history, shaping the Marvel Cinematic Universe from the ground up and becoming one of the most successful producers of all time in the process.

‘Avengers: Damage Control’ Review: This Marvel VR Experience is a Dream for MCU Fans

The recent trailer for Avengers: Damage Control has Ant-Man telling the audience to “Make good choices.”  If you’re already going through the experience, however—an immersive 4-D VR adventure that involves strapping on goggles and a backpack before galivanting around a physical stage full of sensory effects—the joke’s on Ant-Man: you’ve already made good choices by deciding to spend the time and money (18-20 minutes and $39.95, respectively) to suit up and enter the Marvel Cinematic Un...

‘Venom’ Director Ruben Fleischer Anticipates a Confrontation with Tom Holland as Spider-Man

Venom may have been flogged by critics to the tune of 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, but it landed perfectly fine with audiences, landing a score of 80% from users on the review aggregation site and raking in over $856 million at the worldwide box office. As expected, Sony Pictures is moving forward with a sequel, and if the original film’s director Ruben Fleischer is to be believed, they’re on their way to a crossover with Venom meeting Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Speaking to Fan...

Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi’ Will Be Tonally Similar to ‘The Matrix’, According to Director Destin Daniel Cretton

At this past summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton took the stage in Hall H to introduce Simu Liu, the star of his upcoming superhero movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the first Marvel Studios film with an Asian protagonist. The presence of the organization in the film’s title – the Ten Rings, the terrorist group that captured Iron Man in the very first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie – is essentially all we know about the movie up to this point. But in a ...

Everything Coming to Disney+ at Launch Teased in 197-Minute Video

After Disney+ made an early debut over in The Netherlands, a complete list of titles available on the streaming service made its way online. But today, Disney decided to draw out the process of revealing the streaming library by individually tweeting pretty much every single title, from television to movies, that you’ll be able to watch starting on November 12. However, apparently that wasn’t enough for Disney+, because they’ve now released a video that’s over three hours long with clips from e...

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Honest Trailer: The Vacation Before Sony and Marvel Got Divorced

Brie Larson Reaffirms Passion for a Marvel Female Team-Up, and Kevin Feige Is Very Much Aware

While many of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies are dominated by male superheroes, the women have really started to push forward and take a prominent role. It’s a shame that Captain Marvel was the studio’s first solo movie for a female superhero, and that movie just came out earlier this year, but Avengers: Endgame also gave all our key female characters a big moment in the final battle (even if some fans weren’t entirely satisfied), and that has Captain Marvel star Brie Larson and the rest ...

‘Avengers: Damage Control’ Trailer Wants You To Suit Up, Step In, and Save the World

Because I am an old, old man, I’m still not entirely sure what The VOID is, other than the thing I stare into every morning when I wake up. But based on my research, it’s a fancy-pants VR experience that more and more hot properties are taking advantage of. The latest is Marvel’s The Avengers, with their new VR experience Avengers: Damage Control. The story involves Black Panther‘s Shuri recruiting you to test a new prototype design combining Wakandan and Stark technologies. And oh yeah, Ant-Ma...

Robert Downey Jr. Declined to Campaign for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Best Actor Oscar

Recently, Disney revealed their For Your Consideration page for Avengers: Endgame, and there was a curious omission from the list of potential nominees: Robert Downey Jr. While Endgame has a huge cast, Downey Jr. is the lead, and on top of that, this was his swan song as Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man. As it turns out, this wasn’t simply a goof or some sort of sign of bad blood between Disney and Downey Jr. In a new interview, the actor revealed he personally declined to campaign for an Oscar.

Edward Norton Originally Pitched Marvel Two ‘Incredible Hulk’ Movies

Back before Mark Ruffalo became Bruce Banner and his big, green alter ego the Hulk in the MCU, Edward Norton briefly inhabited the role in The Incredible Hulk. Norton was replaced by Ruffalo for The Avengers, and there have been rumblings that the actor didn’t get along with MCU head honcho Kevin Feige behind-the-scenes.

'Suicide Squad' Director Urges DC and Marvel Fans To Stop Feuding

An anonymous reader quotes Cinema Blend: At the beginning of 2019, approximately a half year after James Gunn was unceremoniously fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it was officially confirmed that he'd be jumping to the DC universe to write and direct The Suicide Squad. Then, just two months later, Disney and Marvel reversed course and rehired Gunn to helm Guardians 3, though because he boarded The Suicide Squad in that interim period, he's tackling that DC tale first and then will jump...

Disney’s Awards Push for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Doesn’t Seem to Include Robert Downey Jr. for Best Actor

Unless Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker makes a last minute dash for the box office record, Avengers: Endgame will be both the highest grossing movie of 2019 and the highest grossing movie of all time. But that’s not good enough for The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios, because they’ll be making a big push for the comic book movie to get some awards love too. However, it would seem that there’s one key category that Disney and Marvel have left out, and we’re not sure why. Here’s the lis...

8 movie franchises that tried to copy Marvel's cinematic universe strategy — and how they fared at the box office

The Marvel Cinematic Universe kickstarted a trend and changed the way studios think about blockbuster filmmaking. But similar franchises haven't been able to replicate its success.
