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 ...

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.

With the cast and subject matter I think we were all thinking The Judge was going to be something special, but coming out of TIFF its good reviews were few and far between. A little concerning, for sure, but this new in...

Why Marvel Phase 4 will not be pushing New Avengers

Recently, Unleash the Fanboy posted what is at best a very misleading post about Phase 4 of the Marvel Universe: Marvel Studios Phase 4 will lead with a New Avengers movie.  Boom. Because there is so much cre...

Review: The Avengers photo
Review: The Avengers
by Xander Markham

The first of 2012's behemoth blockbusters arrives with the weight of four years' build-up on its shoulders and rabid fan expectations to live up to. Despite none of the movies leading up to this point being particularly special - Robert Downey Jr's revelatory performance brought the first Iron Man closest - Avengers shows Marvel capable of rising to the occasion when it really matters. Many of the same problems from previous movies persist, but the excitement of seeing these characters share a screen is enough to reduce such concerns to minor footnotes.

Despite my dread after apparently being the only person on the planet to not have enjoyed Cabin In The Woods, Joss Whedon's script does a superb job with the challenging task of not only giving all the heroes something relevant to do, but finding something approaching a human heart at the centre of this fantastical escapade.
