Russo Bros apparently directing both Avengers: Infinity War films

With Avengers: Age of Ultron only a month away, it's time to care about the films we'll be getting forever away from now! According to Badass Digest, who has gotten the info from an un-identified source so take it with some s...

This Avengers: Age of Ultron TV spot is better than the trailers

While the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailers have been hit and miss (no one's exactly chomping at the bit for that 29 hour marathon), but I'm sure Marvel doesn't really care how they advertise this anyway. Like if the only way...

UPDATE 3: These Avengers: Age of Ultron character posters have less cooks

UPDATE 3: Quicksilver, Ultron, and Scarlet Witch! I'm sure we'll get a Vision poster soon too since he's the last character from the original insane poster that hasn't been highlighted yet. When it arrives, I'll just toss it ...

You cannot afford this life sized Hulkbuster statue

If you've got a spare several thousands dollars lying around and believe you haven't shown off your Marvel fandom hard enough, I've got the solution you've been looking for. Beast Kingdom is selling a 300 cm (around 9-10 feet...

Haweye joins Captain America: Civil War

While we haven't seen Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye since The Avengers, it seems the (handsome) archer won't stay as silent in Marvel's phase 3, as he is now set to appear in Captain America: Civil War.  So... a quick recap o...

SNL proves Thor is the best Avenger

The first Avengers was a ground breaking comic book film in two ways. First, it capitalized on several years of buildup, and secondly, it was the first one to show the aftermath of the big battle. But will Avengers: Age of U...

Drew Goddard could direct Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man reboot

When Sony announced they were bringing Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I thought of many reasons it could be a bad or good idea. But one thing I had never thought of was what potential directors we'd get for th...

There are too many cooks on this Avengers: Age of Ultron poster

You kind of forget how massive this movie's cast is until you get it all in one image. It's...overwhelming. Notably, the cast includes Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell, and Anthony Mackie as well. Let's hope there's a good balance of all those big names. Avengers: Age of Ultron releases May 1st. [via Twitter] [Header via Hubes]

Joss Whedon discusses why Ant-Man won't show up in Age of Ultron

Comic book fans can be a protective lot, especially when it comes to their favorite properties and characters. It was no surprise, then, that some were upset when Joss Whedon announced a while back that the Avengers' longtime...

5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a good idea photo
5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a good idea
by Nick Valdez

I don't know about you all, but I'm still shocked at the news that Sony and Marvel are finally getting along and Spider-Man will officially join the Marvel movies. The finer details of the deal are still shrouded in mystery with some sites reporting that Sony let Marvel have the character for free, some saying Andrew Garfield is out for good and Marvel will recast, and we still don't know exactly how much control Sony will have going forward. But in the end, this is pretty awesome. 

But exactly how awesome is this move? After thinking about it for a bit (taking time in between to remind myself that this is real), I've come up with five reasons why Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is an Amazing, Astonishing, Spectacular, Ultimate, and Superior idea.

Sony's Spider-Man officially joining Marvel cinematic universe

Wow, so, uh, yeah. I'm at a loss for words. Because both Sony and Marvel like money, and Sony has been wondering what to do with the The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, the two companies are now working together. According to the deal, Marvel's "new" Spider-Man (which most likely will recast Andrew Garfield and start a new line of films) will first appear in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film and Sony will then release the next Spider-Man film in 2017. 

The two studios will collaborate with Sony remaining in control of future Spider-Man solo projects, but will allow Spider-Man to presumably join films like The Avengers and Marvel working to get its characters into future Spider films. 

Holy bologna. Time to speculate! I'm hoping for Miles Morales actually since the press release emphasizes "new Spider-Man" and Marvel will most likely want a clean slate. Plus, it's the best way to get a new Spider-Man without the same origin story. Holy moley, you guys. Here's the press release.

Here are a bunch of Avengers: Age of Ultron images

While we've got a bunch of questions as to the plot of Avengers: Age of Ultron, there's only a few months to go before we actually see it. To tie us over until then are this chunk of images of stuff we've seen before but in greater resolution. Soooo enjoy! Avengers: Age of Ultron releases May 1st.  [via Marvel]

Joss Whedon really not likely to return to Marvel Cinematic Universe

It appears that basically being the architect for an entire cinematic universe is a bit time consuming and exhausting. Joss Whedon is currently wrapping up Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he's pretty sure he will not be returnin...

Rumor: Spider-Man to appear in Avengers: Infinity War photo
Rumor: Spider-Man to appear in Avengers: Infinity War
by Matthew Razak

After Sony was soundly disappointed by The Amazing Spider-Man 2 the company was struggling with what to do with the character. As some leaked documents (that we did not cover) showed they even reached out to Marvel to possibly bring him into the MCU and jointly run the character. Those talks looked like they fell through, but did they?

Latino Review is reporting that they were in fact successful and that Spider-Man will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2018 with Avengers: Infinity War Part 1. That all makes sense considering the major part Spidey plays in Civil War, which will be the Captain American installment of Phase 3. 

Of course this is all a massive rumor and even if it is true there's millions and millions of dollars involved meaning everything could easily fall apart. Sony won't want to let go easily of its only super hero, but we're pretty sure Marvel is desperate to have him as an Avenger. The Latino Review report goes into some major spoilers about this as well.

Finally, since Marvel will be resetting the character Andrew Garfield will no longer be playing him. Sad for fans of the actor in the role, but I'm not going to lose much sleep.

Newest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is better than the first

This may technically be a TV spot that debuted during, um, sports(?), but it's long enough and full of new footage so I'm going to go ahead and say this is the second trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. It's much more balan...

More talking in new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer

Can there be too much hype for Avengers: Age of Ultron? No. That is, in fact, a scientifically proven answer. As such here's another trailer giving us a bit more of Ultron's speech to the Avengers that we've heard and re-enf...

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.
