Sebastian Stan Says Avengers 4 Is An Insane Juggernaut Of A Film

From Captain America’s rumored transition (Nomad, perhaps?) to Hawkeye’s newfound identity, the story rumors for Infinity War and Avengers 4 have been coming in thick and fast.

That largely comes down to the fact that Joe and Anthony Russo chose to shoot both ensemble movies back-to-back, resulting in a bottleneck of photos and leaked set pics. And though we still don’t know very much about either of the aforementioned films, it’s fair to say that both McU tentpoles are among the most-anticipated movies on the Hollywood calendar.

And for good reason, it seems, as according to Sebastian Stan, Avengers 4 is going to be an “insane juggernaut.” While chatting with Collider in a recent interview to promote his new movie I, Tonya, here’s what the actor had to say about the upcoming Phase 3 closer.

It’s chaotic, but it’s great. That’s another insane juggernaut. It’s a war.

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

Avengers 5 To Be Set In Outer Space?

Even though we still have 5 more movies left of Phase Three – including Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel – fans are already eager to find out what the next stage of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will consist of. With the ongoing plotline of the threat of Thanos set to be wrapped up soon, there were fears that the franchise might be ending. However, it’s recently become apparent that that’s absolutely not the case. Far from it, in fact, as there’s a lot of life left in the McU yet.

Granted, we don’t know too much about what Kevin Feige and co. have planned for us beyond Avengers 4 at the moment, but it’s no secret that Marvel is looking to expand the cosmic side of their universe and start exploring new worlds, with the plan being to leave Earth behind once Thanos is out of the way.

Loki’s Allegiance In Avengers: Infinity War Has Been Revealed

At long last, Loki’s true allegiance in Avengers: Infinity War has finally been revealed. Speaking at Comic Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that the God of Mischief will indeed be one of Thanos’ allies in the film, just as we’d all suspected.

As fans will know, the debate initially stemmed from the events of Thor: Ragnarok. In the recent threequel, Loki looked to have found his inner good guy as he stood by his brother throughout the fight against Hela. In a touching moment of brotherly bonding, he even remained by the new king of Asgard’s side once the threat had been dealt with.

However, there was one hint that Loki still had a hidden agenda throughout the movie. When he was in Odin’s vault to awaken Surtur, he was shown to notice the Tesseract, on display and unguarded.

‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 Furthers the Sexual Assault Conversation From a Woman’s Perspective

‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 Furthers the Sexual Assault Conversation From a Woman’s Perspective
It’s been two years since the explosive first season of Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” hit Netflix, only the second show in the superhero franchise’s growing roster original series, which also includes “Iron Fist,” “Luke Cage,” “The Punisher,” and “The Defenders.” When “Jessica Jones” finally returns for a second season sometime next year (no date has been announced), it will be in a world more ready than ever to embrace its message of women fighting back against sexual harassers and abusers. Action-packed, funny, and deeply addictive, the series followed Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), a private detective with special powers, and her quest for revenge against Kilgrave (David Tennant), a man who manipulated and abused her through mind-control.

The McU Will Make Room For The X-Men As Disney/Fox Deal Nears Completion

In what could be the most significant bit of superhero news of the year, it’s looking increasingly likely that the Walt Disney Company and 21st Century Fox are very close to finalizing a deal that could see properties like X-Men and Fantastic Four making their way to the McU. The update comes courtesy of Variety, who are reporting that the companies now have their money-men poring over the fine print of the deal before making it public – which means that it’s nearly good to go now.

The $74 billion deal apparently doesn’t go so far as merging the two companies but rather, would see Disney purchasing the majority of Fox’s most valuable IP, with the most significant additions being the film and TV rights to various properties. Word is that, should everything proceed smoothly, the talks will bear fruit sometime before Christmas.

So, what would this mean for the McU going forward?

Avengers: Infinity War Merchandise Gives Us New Looks At Thanos, Groot And More

By now, we’re all used to getting glimpses of stuff in upcoming blockbusters via merchandising. Licensed Lego sets are always a good bet for a couple of spoilers, as are action figures at trade shows and foreign market advertising material. None of which makes it any less amusing that we’re getting our first full body look at Thanos, the Mad Titan and scourge of Avengers: Infinity War via a novelty cup topper.

Though they’re understandably a bit cheap-looking, they also have a decent amount of detail to them. The set we have below encompasses Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, Teenage Groot and Thanos. Obviously, we’re already pretty familiar with how the first three look in the McU, so there are no surprises there. However, the Teenage Groot and Thanos ones are worthy of some more examination.

Firstly, Thanos looks ready to wreck some poor superhero’s day.

Avengers: Infinity War Hi-Res IMAX Photos Bring Us Closer To The Spectacle

It’s safe to say that the Avengers: Infinity War trailer delivered everything we hoped for, giving us more superheroes than you can shake a stick at and the promise of some truly intense action. Admittedly, I have a couple of reservations about how the Russo Brothers are going to squeeze all this into a movie, but then again, Marvel has done a pretty great job with their ensemble pieces so far, so I’m optimistic.

Now, as to keep the hype fires burning, the studio has released a series of gorgeous, high resolution stills from the trailer for us to pore over, which are apparently taken from the upcoming IMAX version of the preview. There’s a lot of good stuff in here, too.

Most notably is a great look at Spider-Man’s new metallic costume. When I first saw the trailer, I assumed that Parker had taken late

‘The Disaster Artist’ Mined Podcast ‘How Did This Get Made’ for Inspiration

‘The Disaster Artist’ Mined Podcast ‘How Did This Get Made’ for Inspiration
James Franco’s “The Disaster Artist” has been racking up strong box office and rapturous reviews since its limited release Dec. 1 (it went wide Dec. 8), but few know that the popular Earwolf podcast “How Did This Get Made?,” hosted by Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael and Jason Mantzoukas, played a seminal role in getting the film to the big screen.

The latest podcast revisits “Artist’s” origin story, Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room,” which many have named as the worst movie ever made, but which took off as a cult hit in L.A. and spread globally over the early 2000s. James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Ari Graynor, writers Michael H. Webber and Scott Neustadter, “The Room’s” Greg Sestero, and Wiseau visit the “Hdtgm” studio, and the episode also includes the 2011 “Hdtgm” episode (#23) on “The Room” with Steve Heisler from The Av Club and “Room” multihyphenate Sestero (earwolf.com/show/how-did-this-get-made).

Chris Hemsworth Hints That Thor Will Survive Avengers 4

With the arrival of the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, fans have begun theorizing about which of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes aren’t going to make it out of their battle with Thanos alive. For a while, it’s been assumed that at least a few of the founding Avengers would be facing their end in either this movie or its sequel, but a new comment from one of the franchise’s stars suggests that we can safely assume one character will survive through Avengers 4.

While speaking with Vanity Fair, Chris Hemsworth – the God of Thunder himself – praised the professionalism and talent of his young co-star Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man. In doing so, he made a reference to how he might “stick around” for future movies, saying the following:

“I’ve been hugely impressed by Tom Holland [Spider-Man] and the way he’s handled the transition. I didn’t

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,

Marvel Boss Kevin Feige Says Casting Captain America Was “Super Hard”

As one of the founding members of the Avengers and a bona fide veteran of Marvel’s ever-evolving cinematic universe, Captain America and Chris Evans practically go hand-in-hand.

But it wasn’t always so easy for the creative minds at Marvel Studios. In fact, as Kevin Feige tells Vanity Fair, casting Steve Rogers was initially “super hard” circa 2010, when the McU was still in its infancy. Back then, Feige feared that the Marvel Cinematic Universe would collapse in on itself if the studio didn’t find the right actor to become the star-spangled patriot.

And though the company’s executives initially dismissed Chris Evans because of his history with the Fantastic Four franchise, it soon became clear that he was the only man for the job:

Casting Captain America was super hard. I started to think, ‘Are we not going to be able to find Captain America, and if we can’t,
