McU Movie Sales Increase As Fans Prep For Avengers: Endgame Release

Not only has Avengers: Endgame enjoyed some phenomenal pre-sales in the last couple of weeks, but it’s also helped boost the sales of previous Marvel titles, as fans revisit the catalogue in preparation for next week’s release.

Ticket service Fandango has announced that their video streaming platform FandangoNOW has seen a nearly 50% increase in transactions for McU movies since Endgame tickets went on sale on April 2nd. According to a survey conducted by the site, the top five films that fans are feeling the need to (re-)watch are Avengers: Infinity War, The Avengers, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Thor: Ragnarok.

From the look of things, some people might well have listened to the advice of Endgame co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo, who said that the two to check out before going into next week’s release are Infinity War and Civil War. While

‘Avengers: Endgame’: Millennials Binge On Marvel Mythology As Finale Film Looms

  • Deadline
“It’s Marvel’s Universe and we just binge in it.” That could be the new motto for Millennials judging by the findings of a new Fandango survey that shows the generation is making deep dives into the Marvel library before next week’s release of Avengers: Endgame, which has been billed as the climatic finale of the Marvel screen saga to date.

Avengers: Endgame from Disney’s Marvel Studios opens April 26 and appears poised for mega-success after breaking the pre-sales record set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In the Fandango survey, 89% of Endgame moviegoers said they would prepare for the major popcorn event by streaming previous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies with friends and family at home this week. According to the same poll, a robust 49% of the Millennials surveyed said they are planning a full-on Marvel movie binge this weekend.

That data dovetails with FandangoNow findings that show

The Marvel Movies Debrief - Thor: Ragnarok Recap, Legacy, and McU Connections

Richard Jordan Apr 18, 2019

The Thor franchise gets a new lease of life thanks to Taika Waititi, who gives the God of Thunder his best McU showcase yet

This article contains spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok and the wider McU.

"Life is about growth; it's about change..."

With Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in full swing, having already introduced a couple of major new characters and raised the stakes for the Earth-bound Avengers (in Captain America: Civil War), it was time for the Mighty Thor's third big-screen outing. It's fair to say, though, that the God of Thunder was in need of a bit of a rethink after his largely soulless second adventure, The Dark World. As Chris Hemsworth's Asgardian hero tells his up-to-his-old-tricks brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), sometimes a change can do you good...

The man tasked by Marvel with leading that change was Taika Waititi. And change things he did.

Appreciating the Acting Career of Daniel Bruhl

It would seem that there are always going to be those actors that don’t seem to get enough credit for the things they do and Daniel Bruhl has been among their numbers for a while. Let’s kind of forget the regrettable part he played as Baron Zemo in Captain America: Civil War for a moment and think more about some of his better roles that have really seen him shine. Daniel has a list of movies to his credit that have been either Indie in nature or have been touted as some of the best to roll out in a

Jeremy Renner Says Stan Lee Will Be Watching Avengers: Endgame With Us

In November of last year, legendary comic book creator Stan Lee passed away, and to a certain extent, the upcoming Avengers: Endgame will stand as one big, 3-hour tribute to the writer’s legacy. In fact, if you ask Jeremy Renner, the man will in some ways be right there with us next week as we make that trip to the theater.

As part of the press tour for the Avengers: Infinity War sequel, the Hawkeye actor stopped by Seoul, South Korea, where he was interviewed by Cna. When asked what he thought Lee’s reaction would be watching the McU’s Phase 3 finale, Renner offered the following response:

“He’s going to be watching it, brother. He’s watching it. He’s in all of us. He’s going to be watching it.”

No doubt Lee will be on the mind of many filmgoers as they go to see next week’s release,

Tony Tries To Pull Off The Impossible In New Avengers: Endgame Promo

“I’m trying to pull off something damn near impossible, and to not die trying would be nice.”

So says Tony Stark in just one of the many Avengers: Endgame TV spots that have emerged in the last couple of days. Though the full context to this quote has yet be revealed, there’s a very good chance that Iron Man is referring to the team’s mission to reverse the snap from Avengers: Infinity War, in which case, he might well pull off the damn near impossible. Whether or not he dies trying, however, is another matter.

Speaking of characters whose demise may or may not be imminent though, the TV spot is edited to suggest that Tony is talking to his old friend Steve Rogers. As it stands, the two heroes have yet to share a scene since 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, when the pair parted ways on bad terms.

Avengers: Endgame Promo Reveals New Footage Of Hawkeye And Black Widow

In a week that hasn’t lacked for new Avengers: Endgame promos and TV spots, Marvel has just released one more preview, which features some new footage of Hawkeye and Black Widow together.

“We’re in different circumstances,” says Clint Barton, as he stands alongside his old friend Natasha Romanoff. The statement probably goes without saying after Thanos wiped out half the universe in last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, though perhaps Hawkeye is also referencing his choice to go rogue in his new Ronin persona. Regardless, fans have already made it clear that they’re excited to have the pair back together, even if they have mixed feeling about Jeremy Renner’s new hairdo.

While next week’s release is widely predicted to see the departure of a few Phase 1 Avengers, Scarlett Johansson and Renner are each expected to reprise their roles for future outings. In the former’s case,

New Avengers: Endgame Promo Teases The Cap And Iron Man Reunion

With slightly over a week to go until the release of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel has released another brief promo that offers a quick reminder of Captain America and Iron Man’s impending reunion.

The 15-second video contains a mere two lines. The first comes from Tony Stark, who asks Chris Evans’ character, “Do you trust me?” to which he replies, “I do.” The moment is followed by a firm handshake to mark the renewal of their friendship. By now, most of you will already be familiar with the exchange, thanks largely to the short trailer that dropped two weeks ago. The clip tugged at the heartstrings of many a fan, though co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo have since muddied the waters by claiming that the moment isn’t in the actual film.

Whether or not the two of them are telling the truth remains to be seen, but either way,

Captain America's Original Avengers Costume Gets Roasted by Endgame Stars
Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. made fun of the Captain America suit from the first Avengers movie over the weekend. Evans and Downey Jr. have been having fun promoting the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, which will more than likely be the last time we see them on the big screen together.

Robert Downey Jr. And Chris Evans Make Fun Of Cap’s Costume From The Avengers

As the release of Avengers: Endgame edges ever closer, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans have looked back on their first shared screen outing and found one more excuse to roast each other on Twitter.

The exchange started with Downey posting a clip from the set of 2012’s The Avengers, where Evans seems to be having trouble putting on his parachute. In the caption, the Iron Man actor wrote:

“This is what happens when they aren’t designed by Stark, @ChrisEvans”

Russo Brothers to work with Tom Holland in the next

Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo, collectively known as the Russo Brothers, are set to join forces with actor Tom Holland again. This time for a smaller film that has a "bit heavier material". "We are going to do our next movie with Tom Holland, who plays Spider-man," Joe said here on Monday. The directors and Holland have worked together in Marvel films Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

Talking about their next film, Joe said: "It is a smaller film about a war veteran who comes home with Ptsd and develops a heroin addiction."

"So, it's a bit heavier material... We thought it was an important issue to tackle," he added.

The directors are here to promote Avengers: Endgame, the 22nd film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Marvel Movies Debrief: Spider-Man: Homecoming Recap, Legacy, and McU Connections

Rob Leane Apr 15, 2019

Tom Holland's first solo outing as Spidey is a very connected McU movie, with its own intimate stakes...

"A Film by Peter Parker"

Spider-Man: Homecoming, just like its hero in one of the film's most memorable moments, had a lot of weight on its shoulders. It's the 16th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a direct sequel to one of its most popular entries (see: Captain America: Civil War). Plus, it's the second big-screen Spidey reboot in recent memory, with Tom Holland getting his first full-length chance to follow in the red and blue footprints of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

The flick kicks off on a bit of a wobble, with a fairly unremarkable introduction for Michael Keaton's Adrian Toomes that's followed quickly by a continuity flab that claims this 2017 movie takes place "Eight Years Later" than 2012's Avengers Assemble. But once that's out of the way,

How Avengers: Endgame Will Wrap Up a 22-Movie Story

Don Kaye Apr 16, 2019

Avengers: Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely say the saga is really over.

It was eight years ago that the names Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely first appeared on a Marvel Studios film, as co-writers of 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger. Since then, the longtime screenwriting team (they first met in 1994) have been the main writers on perhaps the most important sequence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 22-film canon, starting with Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), then Captain America: Civil War (2016), followed by Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and now, opening in just under two weeks, Avengers: Endgame.

The story threads they first began pulling on with the first Captain America film -- the discovery of the Tesseract (a.k.a. the Space Stone), the origin of Cap himself, the loss of Bucky Barnes -- all formed the spine of the McU’s main, overarching storyline:

Why Marvel should hold a Phase Four press conference ahead of Comic-Con 2019

George Chrysostomou on Marvel and its Phase Four plans…

With the third Phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe quickly approaching its ‘endgame’, Marvel will hopefully soon announce a solid slate of post Avengers 4 plans for their faithful audience to digest. A few years ago, Marvel skipped San Diego Comic-Con in favour of holding its own press conference, which announced a whole new range of projects, including films such as Captain America: Civil War. Heading into Phase Four, I feel that it’s time for Marvel Studios to do the same again in order to get ahead of the increasing rumours and half announcements that has surrounded the McU recently. Whether this should happen after Captain Marvel or perhaps – for fear of spoilers – even after Endgame has hit cinema screens, before July’s Comic-Con the House of Ideas should, in my opinion, host their own press conference again to set the

The Marvel Movies Debrief: Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Recap, Legacy, and McU Connections

Juliette Harrisson Apr 12, 2019

James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 keeps the charm of the first and gives new depth to its characters.

This article contains spoilers for Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and the wider McU. This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 sits in a slightly odd position – narratively, chronologically, critically, geographically...

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 was released about halfway through Phase 3 of the McU, in between Doctor Strange and Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, if you’ve paid close attention to the movie, you’ll know that it sits much earlier in the timeline.

Guardians 2 takes place only a couple of months after Guardians 1, while Baby Groot is still a baby, only 34 years after Peter’s parents met. If you’re watching the McU movies in internal chronological order, Guardians 2 comes immediately after Guardians 1 and before Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
