Marvel's A-Force Assembles: Female Avengers Unite in Endgame Set Photo
The highlight of Avengers: Endgame is the final battle scene and Marvel Studios has just released a new behind-the-scenes image from it. One of the many parts that sticks out during the intense battle against Thanos and his army is when the female group comes together to help Captain Marvel. While some have labeled that particular scene as pandering, a lot of Marvel Cinematic Universe fans were very happy about the inclusion and as screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus say, they only put it in because it was too awesome to leave out.

The Avengers: Endgame image features Danai Gurira as Okoye, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts/Rescue, Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne/Wasp, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, and Karen Gillan as Nebula.

When Does the Black Widow Prequel Take Place in the McU Timeline?

The upcoming Black Widow standalone movie is very much a mystery at this point in time. It has been believed, pretty much since the movie was revealed to be happening, that it was going to be a prequel set in the early 2000s or late 1990s. Obviously, Marvel Studios has yet to even officially announce the project, but it is expected to begin production any time now since the press tour for Avengers: Endgame is basically over for the cast. With that being said, Sebastian Stan may have just revealed a pretty intriguing piece of timeline news for the project.

Winter Soldier actor Sebastian Stan recently appeared at Italy's Jus In Bello convention and reportedly shed some light on the Black Widow standalone movie during an interview. According to Stan, the movie takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War. No other information was made available, but this

Kevin Feige Hints That Marvel May Bring Back Some Forgotten Characters

Something that always gives Marvel fans a thrill is a character we haven’t seen for a while showing up in the latest McU movie, even if they aren’t that major a figure in the franchise. It turns out that’s something we have in common with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, too, who’s revealed that he loves bringing back characters people aren’t expecting. But could this be a hint that he’s going to be pulling the same trick again in the future?

While taking part in his first ever Reddit Ama earlier in the week, Feige was asked if he had any plans to re-use “forgotten” McU characters like Abomination, Justin Hammer and the Leader down the road. The producer didn’t directly answer the question, but did point to a couple of recent times when surprising faces made a return.

Black Widow Movie Will Reportedly Take Place After Captain America: Civil War

“In order to take the stone, you must lose that which you love. A soul for a soul…”

That’s the mandate set out by Red Skull during the throes of Infinity War, when the iconic McU villain informed Thanos that he had to sacrifice that which he loves if he hoped to get his big purple hands on the Soul Stone and its near-limitless power. And so, Gamora was sent spiraling to her death, never to be seen again… until Avengers: Endgame opened up the Quantum Realm and paved the way for all sorts of mind-melting possibilities. Case in point: the exhilarating first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Back in the realm of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, though, and Joe Russo confirmed that the Soul Stone sacrifice is irreversible, meaning Black Widow and present-day Gamora are indeed gone for good. But that doesn’t mean we won’t

‘We Have Always Lived in the Castle’ Film Review: Sisters Hide From the World in Riveting Shirley Jackson Adaptation

‘We Have Always Lived in the Castle’ Film Review: Sisters Hide From the World in Riveting Shirley Jackson Adaptation
In Stacie Passon’s dynamic directorial debut “Concussion”, a housewife breaks free of her suburban bubble by taking on sex work in the city. With her sophomore feature “We Have Always Lived in the Castle,” adapted by Mark Kruger from the 1962 novel by Shirley Jackson, Passon offers a female protagonist who’s the antithesis of her previous one: Merricat Blackwood (Taissa Farmiga) can’t ensconce herself enough from the world outside.

(The heroine of “Concussion” spends most of the film renovating a Manhattan apartment, while Merricat builds her entire world within the walls of the family manse, meaning that someday, someone is going to craft a thesis with a title like “Inquire Within: Real Estate in the Films of Stacie Passon.”)

While this period adaptation sees the filmmaker operating in a more traditional, classical mode, “We Have Always Lived in the Castle” allows Passon to work with a larger, more

Joe & Anthony Russo Follow Record Setting ‘Avengers: Endgame’ With Agbo Launch & Cannes Pics — Deadline Disruptors
Joe and Anthony Russo are riding high—about as high as it’s possible to get—as their superhero showdown Avengers: Endgame surpassed $2.5B in global gross to sink Titanic and take second place with Avatar in sight for the all time top grossing film. The brothers have spent the last seven years at Marvel working with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely on two Captain America films and two Avengers films, which, by the time the latest is done, will have grossed in excess of $6 billion.

So what a time it is for the Russos to jump out of their safety zone by launching full steam ahead with their monied production company Agbo, through which they’ll develop, produce and co-finance films, TV series and other projects—including remakes of certain MGM properties such as The Thomas Crown Affair, which is being developed as a vehicle for Michael B. Jordan.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. May’ve Teased Captain America’s Secret Children

Following Avengers: Endgame, the makers of the movie have been dropping revelations that alter our understanding of the McU to date. For instance, the Russos claimed Steve Rogers knew he could lift Mjolnir back in Avengers: Age of Ultron but he chose not to. Speaking of Captain America, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have likewise suggested a pretty big retcon of the franchise.

As we all know, Endgame concludes with Steve going back into the past and living out a happy life married to Peggy Carter. It’s Markus and McFeely’s interpretation that Rogers remains in the original timeline and that this Old Man Cap has always been there in the McU, just retired and keeping to himself. This includes raising a couple of kids with his wife.

Some fans are skeptical about the writers’ explanation for Cap’s time travel, but it’s an established fact that Peggy had children.

Avengers: Endgame Director Says Bucky Didn’t Want To Be Captain America

The ending of Avengers: Endgame has proven controversial to many fans, with no topic more hotly debated than Captain America’s final scene. The moment, in which an elderly Steve Rogers reveals he went back in time to live the life he always dreamed, had to serve as both the resolution to the film as well as the character’s arc over multiple movies, starting with 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger.

So after so many movies, it must be asked, why did Steve decide to pass his mantle onto the Sam Wilson, instead of his childhood friend and partner Bucky Barnes? Weeks after the film’s release, his decision has become a point of contention among many Captain America fans, more so than the time travel plot or even central characters’ deaths. Some feel that it was just another moment of fan service, as the Falcon became the new

Avengers: Endgame Directors Say Iron Man Was Right To Build Ultron

Iron Man and Captain America might be staunch allies on the battlefield, but they’ve always had differing methods on how best to protect the world. The most obvious example of this is Captain America: Civil War, in which the pair take opposing sides on the Sokovia Accords conflict. Tony Stark’s decision to create Ultron is another issue that drove a wedge between the two heroes though and in this case, Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo think Stark was in the right.

If you remember, Avengers: Age of Ultron sees Tony designing Ultron as a response to the invasion of New York in The Avengers – something to protect the planet if another extraterrestrial incursion occurs. Unfortunately, Ultron turned out to be a world-conquering maniac but hey, at least Iron Man’s heart was in the right place.

Speaking to Slate, Joe Russo talked about how Tony “was not wrong” in Ultron,

Tom Zickler Pays Tribute to Defa with ‘Traumfabrik’

“Traumfabrik” marks the return of one of Germany’s most successful producers back onto the film stage in more ways than one.

A period-piece love letter to East Germany’s famed Defa film studios, now known as Studio Babelsberg, “Traumfabrik” is a romantic drama set in 1961 that follows a young studio extra’s ambitious efforts to reunite with the French girl he loves after being separated by the construction of the Berlin Wall.

It’s also the name of a new Studio Babelsberg shingle headed by veteran producer Tom Zickler and Christoph Fisser, Studio Babelsberg vice president and COO.

Zickler launched the joint venture in 2017 after nearly 20 years of working with actor-director Til Schweiger on some of Germany’s most successful films of the past two decades. Overseeing production at Barefoot Films and Mr. Brown Entertainment, Zickler produced such hits as 1997’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”; 2010’s “Friendship!” and 2014’s “Head Full of Honey.

[This story contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame]

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely had already written Marvel's most character-packed movie to date when they were hired to take on not one, but two Avengers films.

To prepare, the writers behind Captain America: Civil War crafted a 60-page document featuring every scenario they could conceive of for these two films, and asked Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and his braintrust to circle things they liked. The document contained things both "big and small." One of the more fascinating items on that list is a title comic book fans will recognize: House ...

Georgia Governor’s Los Angeles Visit Takes Shape as Hollywood Weighs Production Boycott (Exclusive)

  • Variety
While the major studios watch and wait to see if a controversial new bill signed by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp goes into effect, Hollywood players are evaluating the prospect of boycotting the production hub, insiders told Variety. Kemp will also visit Los Angeles in the coming months to meet with top executives, where the legislation will likely come up, numerous individuals familiar with the trip said.

Outrage from the likes of prolific indie producers Christine Vachon (“Carol”) and Mark Duplass (“Creep”) has been rolling in since Kemp signed Hb 481 on Tuesday, which would outlaw abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. Stars like Alyssa Milano — currently living in Georgia, on the set of the Netflix original “Insatiable” — said they would exit what has become a booming local film economy in the name of female reproductive rights.

Tom Holland Reveals A Sad Truth About Captain America: Civil War

In the grand scheme of things, Captain America: Civil War is one of the most important Marvel movies of the lot.

As a matter of fact, when people were composing their McU marathons in anticipation of Avengers: Endgame, Joe and Anthony’s Civil War was soon identified as a must-watch – the kind of movie you simply cannot skip, otherwise you risk being totally confused by the whole Tony/Steve reunion in Endgame.

Moreover, Civil War also holds a special place in our hearts for introducing Tom Holland’s Spider-Man to the McU, though it seems the actor has a surprise admission to make now that Endgame has come and gone. Remember when Peter Parker references that ‘really old movie’ Empire Strikes Back? Turns out Holland has never actually seen what is undoubtedly one of the best Star Wars films ever made.

Leaked Spider-Man: Far From Home Action Figure Gives Away Some Major Spoilers

As the hype surrounding Avengers: Endgame begins to slowly die down, longtime McU devotees have been turning their attention towards Spider-Man: Far From Home, which is due out in less than two months. The upcoming Marvel film is set to cap off Phase 3 – having kicked off back in 2016 with the release of Captain America: Civil War – and fans are eager to see their favorite neighborhood superhero return to the big screen.

Earlier this week, just after Disney lifted the embargo for Endgame spoilers, Marvel released a brand new trailer for Far From Home, which went on to rack up 135 million views in less than a day, smashing records previously set by the film’s first teaser. The video starts with a brief introduction from actor Tom Holland, and needless to say, it’s full of spoilers for the latest Avengers film.

How to Deal with Excessively Over-Powered Comic Book Characters

Juliette Harrisson May 9, 2019

How do you make all-powerful heroes like Superman and Captain Marvel compelling characters? Put their brains to work...

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Warning: contains spoilers for all McU films up to and including Avengers: Endgame, and all Dceu films.

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded over the years, it has introduced more and more characters with increasingly spectacular power sets. Scarlet Witch has vaguely defined but clearly impressive powers (“She’s weird”); Thor is the god of thunder and lightning and can apparently survive the full power of a neutron star as well as exposure to deep space; Doctor Strange can open up enough portals to bring an entire army with him and is a literal wizard, as is Wong; and Vision is extremely intelligent, has access to enormous knowledge, can fly and is powered by an Infinity Stone.

Spider-Man: Far From Home’s Tom Holland Says He’d Make 20 Marvel Movies

Tom Holland has made a big impact on Marvel fans since he joined the McU as the teenage Peter Parker in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. Since then, he’s gone onto appear in three more movies, with this summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home bringing his current list of times playing the character up to a round five. This already makes him the most prolific of the cinematic Spider-Men – sorry, Tobey Maquire (3) and Andrew Garfield (2) – but Holland has no plans to stop web-slinging any time soon.

During a Far From Home set visit in London, the 22-year-old actor was asked about the experience of making his second Spidey solo film and Holland revealed that he’d happily do 20 movies as the wall-crawler.

“It feels pretty good. It’s an amazing experience as an actor and such a privileged experience as an actor to get to play characters that you love so much.

Tom Holland Sees a Very Long Future for His Spider-Man

Tom Holland Sees a Very Long Future for His Spider-Man
Tom Holland could be our Peter Parker for a very, very long time, assuming the actor has his way. Sony and Marvel Studios cut a deal several years back that allowed for Spider-Man to finally appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside his fellow Avengers. Holland ended up landing the highly-coveted gig as the new Spidey and he's already appeared in a handful of movies as Marvel's resident webslinger. And don't expect to see him give up the role to some other actor anytime soon.

Spider-Man: Far from Home, the sequel to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming, is set to arrive in theaters this summer. A new trailer was recently released that reveals this movie will be dealing directly with the fallout from Avengers: Endgame. It also reveals (possibly) that the concept of the Marvel multiverse will be introduced, thanks to Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio. During a recent set visit, Tom

Avengers: 18 Villains Rumored To Appear After Endgame (And 7 Who Are Confirmed)

The release of Avengers: Endgame marked the end of a Marvel era. Bringing the Infinity Saga to a close, the movie capped off the journeys for many heroes, but opened the door for many more to appear. It also served to close the story of Thanos’ search for the Infinity Stones, making room for the Avengers, and their new allies, to turn and face new villainous threats.

Over the years, threats to the members of the Avengers included massive extraterrestrial forces, like Thanos and his minions, or the Chitauri. Threats also came from villains already on Earth. Some had personal agendas, like Erik Killmonger in Black Panther or Helmut Zemo in Captain America: Civil War. Others were more interested in world domination, like Loki in The Avengers, or Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Still others were simply misunderstood, like Ghost in Ant-Man and the Wasp. That large variety of villains,
