Avengers: Infinity War will show “why Thanos is the biggest and baddest villain in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe”

Having made his first appearance in the post-credits scene of The Avengers back in 2012, we’re now just a few short months away from seeing Thanos unleashing his wrath on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and speaking at Brazil’s Ccxp, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has promised that the first five minutes of Avengers: Infinity War will establish the Mad Titan as “the biggest and baddest villain” of the McU to date.

“You know, we’ve been teasing Thanos since the very first Avengers film,” said Feige. “Remember the end of Avengers, the very end of the movie he turns around in the chair and you realize something bad is coming. We’ve been teasing him for years and the trick is when you tease something for that long you have to deliver. So, within the first five minutes of Infinity War people will understand why Thanos is the biggest

Anthony Mackie and Evangeline Lilly share photos from the Avengers 4 set

Over the past few months, we’ve seen numerous stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe confirming their involvement with the Avengers: Infinity War follow-up, and now we’ve got two more names for Avengers 4 with both Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon) and Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne/Wasp) sharing images from the set…

While there’s nothing really exciting there, it’s interesting to note that Lilly is sporting her Ant-Man hairstyle, as opposed to the longer haircut she has in the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp. So, does this mean that Ant-Man and the Wasp will take place after the two Avengers movies, despite being released in between them? Or might we be seeing another flashback?

Marvel’s Kevin Feige says future Avengers movies will take place in space

Although Marvel is keeping its Phase Four plans tightly under wraps, we do know that the studio plans on delving further into the cosmic universe post-Avengers 4, with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn helping Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige to help shape this side of the McU.

Well, it seems this cosmic emphasis won’t just apply to the likes of the Guardians and Thor, as Feige has revealed at Brazil’s Comic-Con Experience that future Avengers movies will see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes venturing into outer space.

“If the Avengers survive, we will see more films with them in space,” said Feige (via Talkies Network). “I love and would like to see more films in space.”

It is expected that the McU will receive a major shake up after Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel, with characters such as Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel coming to the forefront.

Jeremy Renner teases his Hawkeye Avengers 4 costume as Gwyneth Paltrow shares spoilery behind the scenes video

Jeremy Renner has teased an image of what looks to be his Hawkeye/Ronin costume for Avengers 4 and Gwyneth Paltrow has had a spoiler-filled behind the scenes video deleted.

The question of just who is going to turn up in Avengers 4, or rather, who will survive Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, is one that is asked often. Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is a character that will be showing up however, and the actor has shared on Instagram a shot of himself in costume (prior spy photos have indicated that he’ll be getting a brand new suit as he moves over to his Ronin persona).

The shadowy photo was posted along with the caption: “Costume on point today … what do you think?”

Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in the McU, may have just given away a pretty big spoiler regarding her character in Avengers 4.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige compares Chris Evans’ Captain America to Christopher Reeve’s Superman

It’s fair to say that a few eyebrows were raised when Marvel first announced that the former Human Torch Chris Evans would be taking on the role of Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Evans has since won over any critics with his superb performances in the Captain America and Avengers films, and Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has been singing the actor’s praises in an interview with Vanity Fair, where he compared him to Christopher Reeve’s Man of Steel.

“Casting Captain America was super hard,” said Feige. “I started to think, ‘Are we not going to be able to find Captain America, and if we can’t, what are we going to do with Avengers? Is the whole thing going to fall apart?’ And, then, finally opening ourselves up to Chris Evans, who we had initially sort of just looked

Marvel’s Kevin Feige explains how to build a cinematic universe

Over the past decade, Kevin Feige has led Marvel Studios to phenomenal success, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe becoming the highest-grossing movie franchise in history with over $13 billion in box office receipts. This success has prompted several other attempts at shared universes, although the likes of Warner’s DC Extended Universe and Universal Dark Universe have not yet managed to reach the same kind of critical and commercial heights.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, Feige was asked what advice he’d give to those looking to build their own universes, responding that:

“The only advice, and I’ve sort of said this already today, is don’t worry about the universe. Worry about the movie. We never set out to build a universe. We set out to make a great Iron Man movie, a Hulk movie, a Thor movie and then be able to do what, at the time,

Avengers: Infinity War set photo may feature a major Hulk spoiler

In lieu of an Incredible Hulk solo movie, which due to rights issues with Universal is unfortunately off the table for the time being, Marvel Studios announced that the Green Goliath will be getting his own three-movie arc across Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4.

As we saw in Thor: Ragnarok, Banner had remained in his Hulk form for two years, as his alter-ego developed more intelligence and the ability to speak, and now thanks to a set photo from Atlanta Filming on Twitter, we may have an idea where this arc is set to take us next in Avengers: Infinity War

Elizabeth Olsen confirms Scarlet Witch return in Avengers 4

It’s common knowledge by now that Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel is set to really shake up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the two-part superhero epic serving as a finale for several characters, as well as launching the McU into a new direction for Phase Four and beyond.

It’s expected as part of this finale that some of our favourites may find themselves falling in battle against Thanos and his minions. However, it seems that Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch will at least make it through to Avengers 4, as the actress has confirmed her involvement in the 2019 release by sharing a photo to social media showing a rather nasty bruise she’s suffered during filming…

Don’t Expect To See McU Movie Heroes In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ever

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was launched in 2013 with much fanfare as a new and vital link in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We were told that the events within would impact upon the films (and vice versa), and most fans anticipated at minimum a couple of cameos from some of the Avengers.

What we actually got, though, were several narrative arcs with little to no connection with the McU. In the end, the connections were limited to the character of Agent Coulson, very brief appearances from Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Alexander and Cobie Smulders, the consequences of the plots of the Captain America movies and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. locating Loki’s staff in time for the opening of Age of Ultron.

Despite that, the show has been muddling along in its own McU cul-de-sac, having picked up a devoted fanbase that’s seen it recently hit its 100th episode. This is a pretty big milestone,

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War trailer shatters record for most views in first 24 hours

Earlier this week Marvel Studios pulled back the curtain on next year’s superhero blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War with the release of the first trailer, and sure enough, it’s went down a storm with fans with a whopping 230 million views in its first 24 hours.

The numbers for Infinity War shatter the previous record of 197 million views, which was set by Warner Bros. and New Line’s hit horror It earlier this year. It has also become the most talked-about trailer for a movie ever, with 1,147,438 online mentions within the first seven hours of its release (the previous record was held by Star Wars: The Last Jedi on 784,360).

THR has also calculated the most talked about moments from the trailer, with Captain America’s beard leading the way with 20,474 mentions, followed by Spidey Sense (6,100), the Guardians of the Galaxy (5,497), “Get this man a shield” (2,180 mentions) and the group shot of

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the Avengers: Infinity War trailer

The Flickering Myth writing team share their thoughts on the first trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War

Christmas came early for Marvel fans yesterday with the release of the first trailer for next year’s hotly-anticipated blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War. What did our writing team make of our first glimpse at the superhero epic? Read on to find out…

Chris Cooper: Been a little while since I’ve tingled watching a trailer. I think it’s just as much about this being the culmination of the storyline than it is the content, but it’s pretty damn cool.

Shaun Munro: I tend to temper my expectations with McU movies but this looks really great so far. I’m especially pleased with how sharp Thanos looks, and the new settings and designs for the characters should help it seem distinct from what’s come before.

The Avengers: Infinity War trailer apparently had Kevin Smith “bawling with joy”

The Avengers: Infinity War trailer has dropped, and the reception has been (almost) uniformly positive. Sure, there are some criticisms of Thanos’ lack of armor, and a few other nitpicks, but overall it’s impossible to deny the joy felt at seeing all of these established characters fighting together for the very first time.

One person who really liked the trailer is Kevin Smith. Smith tends to have a pretty open mind when it comes to comic book films, but Avengers: Infinity War footage, in particular, left the director/writer/podcaster a complete mess:

Yes, I cry at everything. But this? This has me bawling with joy. It truly lives up to the word @Marvel! Look at that clusterfuck of heroes! Take every penny of my money! https://t.co/QfmJ8Rm98M

The Russos on killing off characters in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4

As we’ve heard on countless occasions now, the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel are set to serve as a “finale” of sorts for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, kickstarting a new wave of films for Phase Four and beyond.

Naturally, there’s a lot of speculation that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes won’t come out of their epic battle with Thanos entirely unscathed, with fans expecting the two superhero epics to feature the deaths of some of our beloved Marvel heroes. And, speaking to Vanity Fair, co-director Anthony Russo has pretty much confirmed that to be the case.

“We know who we’re allowed to kill, and that’s about it,” said Russo when asked whether he and his brother Joe are involved in shaping the franchise post-Infinity War. “I don’t even think Marvel had any ideas about where they would go after [Avengers 3 and 4]. It

First trailer for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Marvel Studios have today released the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, which is set to be the epic “end” of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it and the start of a whole new chapter (or “phase” as Marvel like to call it) for the interconnected universe – which is set to less rely on old heroes and focus more on all-new heroes in the McU.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Explosive First Trailer Arrives
The explosive first trailer for “Avengers: Infinity War” has finally arrived.

Marvel Studios dropped the official trailer Wednesday during ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

The powerful first footage shows the mother of superhero team-ups — the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and almost every other major Marvel hero joining forces to take on Thanos (Josh Brolin), who is trying to collect the Infinity Stones, on several battlefronts.

“There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if we could become something more. So when they needed us, we could fight the battles that they never could,” the characters say in the trailer’s opening.

The movie picks up four years after the events of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

The trailer arrives five months after the first footage was screened at Disney’s D23 Expo and at San Diego Comic-Con.
