Oscar Isaac is X-Men: Apocalypse's...Apocalypse

Oscar Isaac truly is a renaissance man. He's one of the few actors I can take seriously in anything he chooses. In fact if he decided to don a fat suit and fart for three hours in his next film, I'd still see it six times. Bu...

Wonder Woman movie nabs director Michelle MacLaren

We're going to get so many superhero films the rest of this decade I say we just pay attention to the ones with enough unique bits to stand out. Chief among these is Warner Bros' eventual take on Wonder Woman. After our most ...

Rumor: Sony is coming up with a bunch of random Spider-Man movie ideas

Firsthand Experience at Marvel Phase 3 Event photo
Firsthand Experience at Marvel Phase 3 Event
by Megan Porch

Two days ago I was lucky enough to attend Marvel’s mystery event at the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles. Now that I’m living in this city, I can see why it’s the sort of place movie fans love. Being a huge fan of the Marvel film franchise, the moment I heard about this event, I immediately jumped on the chance to go.

At first, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I thought they might announce who’s playing Doctor Strange and do a Q&A about that movie, maybe show some Age of Ultron and Ant-Man footage and that’d be it… But since DC and Warner Bros announced their line up of films for the next couple years, I hoped Marvel might show us a list of titles as well.

The moment Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, came out on stage, the excitement in the theater was palpable. He started out the event by showing us what we’d already seen thanks to a leak; the Age of Ultron trailer. Seeing it on the big screen was definitely a treat.

Following that, Feige began talking about the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, and the films they have scheduled for next year; Avengers Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. But then he said he didn’t have us all come there to see things we already knew about, and that was when things began to get really crazy.

Benedict Cumberbatch in talks for Doctor Strange photo
Benedict Cumberbatch in talks for Doctor Strange
by Nick Valdez

Benedict Cumberbatch has played everything from a literary detective character, the guy with WikiLeaks, the super being Khan, a leading man in several amazing dramas, to a mocap dragon, so it's very appropriate that Marvel is tapping him to headline their Sorcerer Supreme film, Doctor Strange. 

While the deal isn't set in stone (sometimes these things fall through), talks have gotten to the point where he's pretty much getting the role. So now that Marvel has a director and release date, by the Hoary Hype of Hoggoth, I'm ready. Doctor Strange releases during Marvel's Phase Three July 8th, 2016

First official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron photo
First official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron

Well I guess no one has to watch Agents of SHIELD on the 28th anymore. Thanks to a snafu leading to a leaked teaser earlier today (which we didn't post because Flixist doesn't dabble in the dark legal arts), Marvel has gone ahead and officially released the first teaser for the much anticipated Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron

We've got a darker tone, James Spader as the killer robot Ultron, and Marvel's version of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Oh right, and HULKBUSTER YEEEEEEEEEEEAH. 

Avengers: Age of Ultron releases May 1, 2015.

DC's film slate finally revealed! photo
DC's film slate finally revealed!
by Sean Walsh

Hold on to your hats, boys and girls, DC has revealed their film slate through 2020. This is major! We're looking at a pretty major A-List line-up (and Suicide Squad, which is cool too!) following Batman v. Superman - Dawn of Justice:

  • 2016: Suicide Squad
  • 2017: Wonder Woman
  • 2017: Justice League Part One
  • 2018 The Flash
  • 2018: Aquaman
  • 2019: Shazam
  • 2019: Justice League Part Two
  • 2020: Cyborg
  • 2020: Green Lantern

Additionally, Jason Mamoa is finally, officially Aquaman and some rather out-of-left-field casting for Flash sees We Need to Talk About Kevin's titular sociopath Ezra Miller don the red and yellow suit.

What do you guys think? Are you hyped? It's hard not to get excited with a line-up like that to look forward to. Also note this doesn't even include additional Superman and Batman solo movies.

I'ts an exciting time to be a comic fan.

Robert Downey Jr. cast in Captain America 3, story based on Civil War  photo
Robert Downey Jr. cast in Captain America 3, story based on Civil War
by Matthew Razak

Big news today coming from Variety as they report that Rober Downey Jr. is on the verge of signing on to play Iron Man/Tony Stark in the third Captain America film. They're also saying that the film will launch the next phase of Marvel's cinematic universe, one that will be based on the Civil War story line from the comics. 

The plot, as those who have read the comic, pits Captain America against Iron Man as the fued over the superhero registration act that requires all people with special abilities to reveal their identity to the U.S. government. This gives Downey a pretty heavy role of villain that could mean he sticks around as Tony Stark for a while longer. He's only signed up at the moment to play the Avenger for one more film, but this role hints at an extension. 

Reportedly there was a lot of hemming and hawing behind the scenes to make this happen, and Downey is going to get quite the paycheck now that he's agreed to star. Most importantly it signals the future of the Marvel cinematic universe as Civil War and its fallout are going to cause some massive shifts.
