If you haven’t seen The Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special yet, you need to see it. Now. Drop whatever you’re doing, head to the nearest screen capable of streaming Disney+ and watch this thing. It is glorious. I LOVED IT. I can’t rave enough about it.
This weekend during Comic-Con Marvel Studios laid out its entire schedule for the next two to three years. When Black Panther: Wakanda Forever comes out at the end of this year, that will be the end of “Phase 4,” then everything that comes out from 2023 through the middle of 2024 will be “Phase 5,” followed by “Phase 6.” But if these last 2022 movies and shows are meant to end a “phase,” it doesn’t feel like it.
Marvel Studios revealed its release plans for the next three years today, and went beyond just the usual conference call or press release…they sent out a three-minute trailer, scored by the familiar opening theme, full of classic clips from movies past (including an audience reaction video) and narrated by a Stan Lee recording. The whole production is intended as one big, giant “WELCOME BACK TO THE THEATERS” sign. (You got the vaccine, right?)
Those who saw Infinity War know Natasha Romanoff, aka the superheroine Black Widow, perished in the events of Avengers: Endgame. And those who didn’t see Avengers: Endgame still know this fact because they’ve been on the Internet at some point between May 2019 and now.
One of the most anticipated panels of the entire San Diego Comic-Con dropped this evening. We’re finally learning about Marvel Studios’ full plans for Phase Four! And it’s crammed with goodness.
Here, folks, is a minute of footage from Avengers Endgame, which made its debut on Good Morning America this AM. If you want to get technical, though, the first time it was shown publicly was last week during the CinemaCon event, which was closed to everyone but the press. Since there wasn’t much to the clip, there was no shortage of precise summaries of it….and if you’ve read one of those, you already know every bit of dialogue here. If not, buckle up for one minute and fifteen seconds of brilliant exposition….’
To say that Black Panther was a success at the box office is by and large one of the biggest understatements of the year. The film has broken records left and right, and is now one of the top-grossing films of all time…and it hasn’t even been out a month. So, we’re getting a sequel to the film, right? That was the question Entertainment Weekly posed to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, and this was his answer:
Tonight, the World Premiere of Black Panther happened, and at the red carpet event, a “special” teaser for one of the two other Marvel Studios movies coming this year was present. Mainly, a pint-sized teaser for Ant-Man and The Wasp. As you’ll see in the video below the “teaser” indicated that a trailer for the film is coming tomorrow, which would be a treat for sure ahead of Black Panthers release on February 16th.
Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios revealed the first teaser poster today for the upcoming Black Panther movie. You can check out the new poster image in the player below.
Sony Pictures basically dropped two new trailers today for Spider-Man: Homecoming with quite a bit of new footage. You can check out both the new domestic trailer and the new international trailer below.
There’s an unspoken rule when it comes to Marvel Studios films, “One does not simply leave before the credits are done.” This is because there is always a post-credits scene or two to be had. Some are filler, some are teases for upcoming films, and some are just pure fan service. But have you ever wondered why they exist at all? Well, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige was all too happy to reveal the answer:
While its easy to say that a lot of people now know the names of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Racoon and Groot, a few years back that wasn’t the case. Marvel took a big gamble putting a cult-classic comic on the big screen, but it worked in their favor, and now everyone knows the Guardians of the Galaxy. For me personally, it’s my favor Marvel film, and one of the best comic movies I’ve ever seen. So when the sequel was announced, I was excited. And though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 doesn’t pack the same punch and pizazz as the original, it’s still a good movie.
