Ryan Reynolds officially set for Deadpool movie

The more we hear of Fox's upcoming Deadpool film, the more I can't believe it's really happening. Of course nothing's set in stone until it's actually in my eyeballs, but I'm kind of throwing all of my eggs in the basket with...

Fantastic Four reboot gets official synopsis

At this point, we know next to nothing of Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot other than how different it's going to be from the original films (and maybe even from the comic books themselves). But it's got a great ca...

Need some brooding 90s superhero-like goth stuff? The Crow, which, lets be honest, wasn't that great movie, is being remade and now it has a brand new director. Replacing J. Javier Gutierrez, who originally replaced ...

The Peanuts Movie reveals the voice cast

Although I'm not a big fan of his work, Paul Feig seems to be approaching Peanuts in just the right way. With the right amount of respect you'd hope any rebooted property gets, The Peanuts Movie is full of unbelievably great ...

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...

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

Doctor Doom's going to be quite different in The Fantastic Four movie

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.

Agents of SHIELD to show off newer Age of Ultron footage

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
by Nick Valdez

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.
