Marvel Cinematic Universe | AVENGERS ENDGAME | APRIL 26th, 2019

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't expect it to be more than a glorified cameo, which is also what Samuel Jackson confirmed that Nick Fury would be in this movie.

Several characters are already getting a bit downsized from my understanding while others are getting a bit more prominence. Tony is guaranteed to not have nearly as much of a prominent role and if The Winter Soldier is anything to go by

he's probably going to live up to his comic book reputation and be more of that guy who lets The Avengers stay at one of his houses since The Avengers tower made a cameo appearance.

Tony's only significance in this movie is probably going to just be showing up in his Hulkbuster armor eventually, and also turn Jarvis into The Vision but I don't expect him to be involved in the riff raff this time around. Hawkeye is already confirmed to have a more prominent role for one.

There was a theory that 

Tony might help SHIELD with their crisis after Winter Soldier, just like on the comics, where there was a time he worked/was the leader of SHIELD, with Nick Fury out of the way, that would be a good way to adapt that plotline, and give Tony a bigger role on the movie and a reason why he isn't fighting

Bucky felt useless, really. Maybe if they just had him as the enemy rival to Cap and left the emotional "you're bucko????" revelations to either the ending or the next movie. I was much more interested in the whole Hydra plot instead.

Could've used more surveillance stuff. The helicarriers worked great on that regard though since I found the scene where they lock all targets very effective on that.

Zola to me was the best part. I imagine there were no copies since he was about 60 km of late 70's probably custom-made computer; there may be copies of him as basic AIs (like how there was one on the pendrive that kept rewriting the encryption), but the actual whole mind is gone.

Didn't like the faux-romance with the Widow. Generally liked the humour. Falcon was a highlight in being kind of a modern-day Cap and serving to him as support and a mirror.

Found it curious if the constant scenes of Bucky using the shield himself are meant to foreshadow Bucky-Cap or just a reference to it.

A bit more focus and investigating into "who is the Winter Soldier and how does he always show up everywhere for 50 years" would've worked better too. They say "oh you've shaped the world" but they only establish that in like 60 seconds, otherwise it's just "drone Bucky"

Really, in general I feel Bucky was the weakest link of the film.

Also, consider the following: Iron Man suit + Zola = Ultron

Had a blast, really enjoyed it

2 things about the post credit btw

A) really like Baron Struckers mordern monocle, considering a traditional one would be kinda impractical

B ) In regards to what he says about the twins, he refers to 'volunteers'(which is Nazi/Hydra for captured modified prisioners used for experimentation), and says they are the only survivors, which means they are experiments, either using the staff, or other means


Oh, and I think a form of Armin Zola is proably still around, since he was revisited more recently, a newer, but weaker version is proably around



here have an awesome poster

Easter Eggs! (spoilers duh)



Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Easter Eggs, Trivia & References


Published by Andrew Dyce


Marvel has made it clear with their superhero filmsthat they aren’t just looking to please movie audiences with epic blockbuster action or a sprawling shared universe – they also want to keep the comic book diehards entertained with a wealth of inside jokes, easter eggs, and direct references to the source material. And Captain America: The Winter Soldier is no exception.

Captain America’s most recent outing may not be as jam-packed with easter eggs as his last one, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few worthwhile inclusions snuck into the finished film by the writers and directors. Even eagle-eyed fans are sure to have missed a few, but they are more than worth a second viewing. Needless to say, there will be plenty of spoilers in our list of Captain America: The Winter Soldier trivia, so read at your own risk.


Cap’s List(s)


One of the largest nods to Steve Rogers’ shift from the past to the present comes in his list of cultural events and figure he’s singled out for later investigation, glimpsed when told by Falcon (Anthony Mackie) to have a listen to Marvin Gaye’s Trouble Man. But what moviegoers may not realize is that the exact contents of the list vary from region to region.

For instance, the American cut of the film features significant events like the ‘Moon Landing,’ ‘Steve Jobs (Apple)’ and ‘Disco,’ while the Korean version references director Chan-wook Park’s Old Boy (2003) and Korean footballer Ji-Sung Park.


Secret Avenger Suit


When Captain America made his costumed debut in The Avengers, his ‘old-fashioned’ costume wasn’t a hit with every fan. With a move towards realism for The Winter Soldier, the directors turned to Cap’s Super Soldier costume – the uniform worn by Steve Rogers during the “Secret Avengers” storyline. The directors explained the shift from red, white and blue to something darker as a sign of Rogers’ changing role within S.H.I.E.L.D., and a more believable suit for his covert operations.

Early set photos show that The Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring a more patriotic suit into the fold, as Cap returns to his roots.


Who Needs a Parachute?


The first full international trailer for The Winter Soldier showed that Cap hadn’t lost his sense of humor in the time since The Avengers, referring to his relatively open social calendar given all his friends being… well, dead. While the exchange between he and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) ended with a leap from the rear of a plane, the fact that Cap found no need for a parachute proved he hadn’t lost his edge.

But devoted fans will recognize that the line is actually a direct reference to the first issue of Marvel’s Ultimates in which Cap’s distaste for parachutes is shown to go all the way back to World War II.


The ‘Lemurian Star’


The action sequence which kicks off the film shows Captain’s combat effectiveness as he takes down an entire squad of mercenaries who have taken control of a S.H.I.E.L.D. freighter. It also happens to be home to not one, but two references to the comic book source material. For starters, the gifted martial artist known as Batroc (played by UFC Champion Georges St-Pierre) is based on the comic book villain ‘Batroc the Leaper,’ with his clothing keeping the purple and gold color scheme intact.


However, the fact that the freighter is named ‘The Lemurian Star’ is also a nod to the comics that Marvel fans won’t miss. In the world of Marvel comics, the Lemurians were a race of sea-people with possible ties to the Deviants, a race created alongside the Deviants by the otherworldly beings known as Celestials. Whether this easter egg is a sign of what’s to come or a nod to fans, it shouldn’t be missed.


Alexander Pierce, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.


Marvel earned serious credibility for their claim that The Winter Soldier would be a political thriller more than a superhero movie when they announced that Robert Redford would play the head of S.H.I.E.L.D.. But the role of ‘Alexander Pierce’ wasn’t entirely new, even if the original character to bear that name was a very different type of soldier. Pierce was actually one of Nick Fury’s top covert agents in the comics, skilled in hand-to-hand combat to rival Widow or Hawkeye.


The Helicarrier’s New Tech


When Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) first reveals the results of Project Insight – three cutting-edge Helicarriers – to Steve Rogers, he notes the improved propulsion engines, courtesy of Stark Industries. The resemblance to Iron Man’s signature weaponry is clear, but it’s how Stark managed to come up with the new designs that is of interest to movie fans. Specifically, once he got “a closer look” at the turbines formerly used to raise the ship from ground level.

Fury is referring to Iron Man’s journey into (and out of) the Helicarrier’s massive turbine when it was attacked by a mind-controlled Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) in The Avengers. It’s hard to believe that Stark had time to think about improving the system while he was being chewed through it, but we suppose you can’t stop brilliance.


Widow’s Necklace


The Avengers did a good job of implying that there was more between Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow than a love of their country, and comic book fans know that the pair have long been romantically linked. Although the films never confirmed that they were anything more than friends, eagle-eyed fans will notice that Widow keeps Clint – or his signature weaponry, at least – close to her heart in the form of an arrow necklace.


Shield Punch


Those who have read the comics upon which The Winter Soldier is based will know that Steve and Bucky don’t cross paths until well into the plot, but when they do, sparks fly. Their first encounter kicks off with penciller Steve Epting’s iconic image of the Winter Soldier’s metal arm slamming square into Cap’s shield with a resounding ‘KLNNG!’. As testament to just how much the studio kept to Brubaker’s original comic run, one of the very first images ever released showed a recreation of that same scene, and it remains intact in the finished film as well.


If The Shield Fits…


Many casual movie fans who weren’t aware of the Winter Soldier’s true identity before entering the theater were likely confused at a few points in the story, but Bucky Barnes’ role in the comics was far more than a villain. Casting aside his brainwashing and embracing the man he used to be (something also alluded to in the film’s final post-credits scene), Barnes would go on to become a force for good alongside his old friend Steve.

In fact, Barnes would eventually take up the red, white and blue shield as Captain America himself – a fact first alluded to in the movie when Barnes wields the iconic weapon in combat against its rightful owner. With Chris Evans stepping away from acting in the years to come, and Sebastian Stan signed for seven more Marvel movies, it’s possible this quick reference could be a certified foreshadow of things to come.


Newman’s Own


It’s strange to think that Paul Newman and Robert Redford are often seen as two sides of the same coin, despite only starring opposite one another in Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid (1969) and The Sting (1973). Besides establishing the two as certified leading men, the films began a friendship that would last until Newman’s death in 2008. Never one to forget his partner in crime, a glimpse into the refrigerator of Pierce reveals a jar of ‘Newman’s Own’ sauce – the charitable food company founded by Newman in 1982.


Zola’s Transcendence


The return of (Swiss) scientist Arnim Zola (Toby Jones) may not have been in exactly the way comic book fans had hoped, but it did manage to keep some semblance of his comic book incarnation intact. With Zola’s brain and face generally set into a mechanized suit when doing battle with Captain America, it’s no coincidence he’s depicted as essentially the same when facing off against Cap and Widow.


Shall We Play a Game?


After Widow cues up the computer in the basement of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s defunct New Jersey base (and informing us all of how ‘yes’ is spelled) she questions whether Steve Rogers would “like to play a game?” Movie buffs of the 1980s will immediately recognize the line as taken from the film WarGames (1983), where Matthew Broderick also converses with an intelligent supercomputer. Impressively, Rogers understood the joke, meaning global thermonuclear war has been on his mind for some time.


Creator Cameo


Marvel had weathered a few attacks in the past of not giving proper credit to the creators and writers of the comics being adapted. But that is most certainly not the case with The Winter Soldier. When directors Joe and Anthony Russo first signed on for the film, one of their first orders of business was a face-to-face meeting with Ed Brubaker, the author of the original “Winter Soldier” comic book series.

But their reverence didn’t stop there, as viewers will notice a goatee’d, bespectacled technician brainwashing the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) in the bowels of S.H.I.E.L.D.. That’s Brubaker, in the flesh, getting a chance to see his creation brought to life from the front row.


Director on the Set


Directors Anthony and Joe Russo didn’t limit their work to that done behind the camera, but in front of the lens as well. Viewers will notice that the doctor coming to Widow’s aid in Nick Fury’s underground “cave” is none other than Joe Russo himself. We’re still waiting to see if his brother Anthony managed to do the same at another point in the film.


Senator Stern


As evidence of just how successfully HYDRA has infiltrated the American government, Senator Stern (Garry Shandling) makes a second appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after previously attempting to acquire the Iron Man armor from Tony Stark in Iron Man 2, and being forced to pin a medal to Stark’s chest in the closing scenes. Now, his antagonizing makes a bit more sense.

It’s unclear if Stern’s whisper of ‘Hail HYDRA’ is a sign that he is one of the group’s longtime members, or simply one that has been brought into the fold (since it seems a bit on-the-nose for such a secretive organization). Hopefully it’s the latter, but either way, fans now know that it wasn’t the US Army seeking to use “the Iron Man weapon” for their purposes, but rather the remnant’s of Red Skull’s forces.


Sits Well, Drops Names


When Agent Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernandez) is being given a (brief) rooftop interrogation by Cap, Falcon and Widow, he reveals HYDRA’s plan to target and eliminate all men and women who could one day pose a threat to their organization. Among the likes of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner, Sitwell also refers to Stephen Strange. The name drop sticks out like a sore thumb to anyone even remotely familiar with the comics, as Doctor Strange is a pivotal character in Marvel’s supernatural realm.

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has maintained that Doctor Strange is one of his personal top priorities, but we would recommend fans don’t put too much into this mention, and take it as the continuing promise to get to the ‘Sorcerer Supreme’ adapted that it likely is.


Stephen Strange isn’t the only character alluded to in Sitwell’s rambling, making mention of “a valedictorian in Iowa City” and a man located in Cairo, Egypt. It could be assumed that these are mentioned to show that S.H.I.E.L.D. (and HYDRA) have eyes around the globe, but Marvel fans know that whatever the context, mentioning Cairo alongside the heroes of the comic book universe points to only one man: Moon Knight.

A former mercenary transformed into the Egyptian Moon-god’s physical avatar, Marc Spector would go on to become a vengeful spirit, referred to many within the comic book community as ‘Batman… with issues.’ There were rumors some years ago that a Moon Knight TV series was being developed, so it’s possible that this could simply be a vague reference to a character fans were already robbed of. But with Doctor Strange mentioned in the same breath, it could certainly be more.


Stan Lee Cameo


As Marvel fans have come to expect, comic book creator Stan Lee once again makes a cameo appearance as a night security guard at the Smithsonian who is only hours away from looking for a new job. It could be argued that given the fame and influence of the comic book characters he created, there may one day be a wing-sized exhibit at the Smithsonian dedicated to Lee himself. So hopefully allowing Captain America to steal his suit (back) can be forgiven.


Community Alums


There was a time when it seemed like the Russo brothers may not be the only Community alums involved with the Captain America franchise. But even if Alison Brie fell out of contention for the role of Agent 13, that didn’t mean the directors couldn’t include at least some of their usual cohorts – namely Danny Pudi, Community‘s Abed Nadir who appears as a S.H.I.E.L.D. tech prior to Cap’s assault on the organization’s hub (D.C. Pierson, the Apple Store employee has also appeared in both credited and uncredited roles on the NBC series as well).


Avengers Tower


With Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) explicitly stated to be a target of HYDRA, it’s no surprise to see him targeted by Project Insight’s weapons system. But when ‘Anthony Stark’ is found, an image is displayed of what appear to be Stark Tower in downtown New York City, still sporting the ‘A’ from the aftermath of The Avengers‘ Chitauri invasion.

But according to the directors, this is not Stark Tower being shown, but the fully-fledged Avengers Tower from the comic books. We don’t know who would be living in it at the time of the film to make it live up to its name, but this is technically the first fans have seen of the location on film.




It was heavily implied that Captain America’s allies would become foes when Frank Grillo was cast as Brock Rumlow a.k.a. Crossbones, a hired gun in the comic canon. Although moviegoers never got to see Crossbones’ signature mask or contract killing on display in The Winter Soldier, the directors left the doors wide open for future appearances.

Specifically, the film left Rumlow with significant facial scarring, and one heck of a grudge. Much focus is placed on the crossed straps alluding to his ‘crossbones’ moniker, and it’s possible that the scars will necessitate his signature mask, should Rumlow surface in future films.


The Carters


Fan speculation spun out of control when the word broke that Emily VanCamp had landed the role of Agent 13, the longtime professional and romantic partner to Captain America. While her role was kept to a minimum in The Winter Soldier, Widow made a point of telling Steve Rogers her real name: Sharon. But what wasn’t revealed was that she is, in fact, Sharon Carter – niece of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell).

It’s easy to see why learning that his neighbor and potential love interest is the niece of his former love might be something Cap needs time to digest – but it’s certainly something that he’ll have to deal with, sooner or later. Especially if Agent 13 starts leaping into battle alongside he and the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s top agents.


Ezekiel 25: 17


Nick Fury’s death may all been a distraction, but it was also a brilliant opportunity to pay homage to one of Samuel L. Jackson’s most iconic roles. So when Steve Rogers is shown visiting the “grave” of Fury, his headstone bears a single epitaph: “‘The path of the righteous man,’ – Ezekiel 25:17.”

Jackson fans will recognize the passage as the same one spoken by Jules Winnfield, the hired gun featured in Pulp Fiction (1994). It’s one reference that may go largely unnoticed by the uninitiated, but is impossible to miss for fans of that actor’s eclectic resume.


Wolfgang von Strucker


The first half of Winter Soldier‘s mid- and post-credits sequences is not just a pleasure for fans of the Captain America comics, but may have massive implications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The scene shows that the death of HYDRA’s head still has only resulted in two more taking its place; specifically, the work conducted under the leadership of Baron Wolfgang von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann).

How large a role Strucker will play in the future films is unclear, but an actor of Kretschmann’s talent is sure to be sought after for more than a mid-credits scene. And even if Strucker is absent from sequels, his experiments certainly won’t be…


Gifted Twins


Also revealed in the film’s post-credits sequence is a direct tie-in to The Avengers: Age of Ultron, with the first appearances of both the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). The two characters will be playing a significant role in at least one Avengers film, but the reality-bending powers exhibited by Scarlet Witch in both the comics and the brief scene hold serious ramifications for all realms of the movie universe.

Hopefully the troubled siblings will gain a better hold on their mental health before they’re entrusted with the responsibility of saving the day, but we’re just as interested to see how they’ll escape from Strucker’s grip. For a full analysis of the ramifications of these short sequences, be sure to read through our Winter Soldier end credits scene explanation.




Those are all the easter eggs, bits of comic book trivia, and subtle references fans can lok out for on repeat viewings, but if you have any that have been missed, please share them in the comments.

I enjoyed the film quite a bit. Actually saw it twice. First in 3D (admittedly, the 3D wasn't that impressive, though maybe it's just me), and then in 2D with my sister. We're the sort that's not really that picky as long as we see it.


Not directly related to the film, but oddly enough, the trailer of the Guardians of the Galaxy that came before CA has me excited for that one as well.

Captain America 3 has a release date of May 6th 2016. Honestly, I feel like this is a little to quick of a release. It feels more like marvel is rushing to compete with something. I mean don't marvel movie sequels take at least 3 years at least after the release of the original? This happened with First Avenger, Avengers, and the Iron Man films I'm pretty sure.

Edit: actually its the other way around. Marvel apparently has had this date planned since June last year. DC/Warner Bros. delayed their Batman/Superman movie for May 2016, Junuary, hoping they would be able to outsell this. That's what a bunch of sites seem to be saying anyway.

It's nothing to do with rushing, they already had plans for a sequel, only now that Winter Soldier turned out to be so good, they think the next movie would be a good way to start Phase 3, consider that it only seems rushed because there's only two movies between them, Guardians and Avengers, but Iron Man 2 had only three movies between that one and it's sequel, same with Thor, I wouldn't say its rushing as much as they think it's a good way to start phase 3.

Guardians, Avengers, Ant-Man, Cap 3, possibly Dr. Strange. That should be the order

Rumour has it that Phase 3 will be something like,


Ant-Man > Cap 3 > Dr. Strange > Thor 3 > Avengers 3.


Cap 3 will probably focus on 

Bucky replacing Steve, which could happen on Avengers 3.

While Thor 3 focuses on Thanos and/or the gems.

That GOTG trailer is even making me more excited for the movie, the offbeat humor mixed with the always top-notch action in Marvel films definitely seems like we have a winner on our hands. Can't wait for August, gonna be seeing it with Felix II, it's gonna be released on his brithday!

So I went to see Winter Soldier and before I say anything, I have to let you know that I hate Captain America, always hated Captain America before watching the film, and still hated the bastard after the film. That said...

Holy fucking shit, that movie was awesome. As a comic book nerd, I knew the lore before and I knew exactly what Nick Fury was talking about when he mentioned the dirty shit that SRR did to make Captain America(hint: Cap was not the first test subject.) So I rolled my eyes at Steve's naivette. But from that point on, the movie took a turn for the better. It just got better. Black Widow got a lot of spotlight and Falcon was sweet. Damn, I am looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy because Marvel be releasing the best super hero movies so far. Also...holy shit, HYDRA has the TESSERACT! SCARLET WITCH! QUICKSILVER! MUTANTS...but not really.

Let me guess turbo, you are a huge fan of Nomad then?

Oh god, what to say about this movie... What NOT to say about this movie?

First of all, I must say, the fighting here is fucking perfect, they showed such skills on close-ranged combat that you'd expect from said characters, and I must say, Sebastian Stan did an amazing job as the Winter Soldier, seriously, every scene before the reveal, when the Winter Soldier was nothing but a ghost, a juggernaut that could not be stopped, his body moved in a really robotic way, every movement during his battle against Black Widow and Caps after he kills Sitwell are so robotic and lifeless, it's really amazing someone managed to pull that off, and right after he learns who he is, he gets in such cathatonic state it really seems like his brain just shut down, seriously Stan nailed the character in every way possible, and now I'm really curious for the next movie, just to see where they're going now with Bucky.

Also HOLY SHIT HYDRA, that was probably one of the best twists on the whole cinematic universe, because now, you can't look back at every single thing SHIELD made and not think ''Was that the good people of SHIELD or the HYDRA double agents?'', and I love so much that the stakes here are far more bigger than in Avengers, I mean, HOLY SHIT, HYDRA WAS LIKE, ONE FUCKING SECOND FROM KILLING AROUND 200,000 PEOPLE INCLUDING TONY AND BANNER. Seriously, the moment they showed the target on Stark tower, I couldn't help but feel horribly disturbed, mainly because we've been so connected with Tony up to this point, and he was one second from being killed by something he'd never know, in a sudden and horrifying way, it really hits home how horrible HYDRA's plan was, if they consider you a threat, EVEN IF YOU DID NOTHING WRONG, IF THEIR CALCULATIONS SAY YOU MIGHT END UP GIVING THEM PROBLEM, you'd be dead any moment, any second, doing anything on your routine, without ever knowing how or why.

And Nick Fury, that wonderful son of a bitch, I knew it wouldn't be easy to kill him, but holy shit, is his car powered by it's own Arc Reactor? Because dayum, that is a fucking Iron Man suit on wheels. And I have to say, while his mindset about the Insight was wrong for the most part, and his wishes to try and save SHIELD, while understandable, were too unreallistic considering the actual situation, Nick Fury did nothing but being awesome on this movie... AND WE GET TO SEE WHAT'S BEHIND HIS EYEPATCH! Its... An Eye... That has it's own access code on SHIELD... I got nothing...

And finally, holy shit what a way to end, seriously, is there a way to jump right into next year? Now I REALLY want to see Avengers 2, because the movie ended in such a ''Darkest Hour'' feel, since SHIELD is gone, HYDRA took everything from them, and now they're planning on something with Loki's scepter, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, and during that stinger it finally hits home how fucking powerful HYDRA is right now... This is pretty much their first loss in 70 years, they act as if it's just a minor setback in their grand scheme, and looking back, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Avengers, and the sequels, all the tech SHIELD used/collected there... Can very well be HYDRA's now, and without SHIELD, who's stopping Banner from being hunted? Or people from going after the Avengers and all those related to them? No one, that's the thing, and to top things off there's also SHIELD's secrets being dumped on the web, while necessary, all double agents they have now are in danger, all the secrets they kept now are gone, and the scariest part? All the tech and blueprints they had now are public domain, any one can reach SHIELD's info and check how to make a fancy new weapon... That can only end up horribly for everyone involved.

Overall, loved this movie, one could say it's better than Avengers, and speaking of that movie, I am really hyped for the sequel now.

Kevin Feige Says Thanos Actor Has Been Cast; Talks New ‘Ant-Man’ & ‘Cap 3′ vs. ‘Batman vs. Superman’

Published by Sarah Moran



After working for years as a producer on Marvel movies made by other studios (X2, Hulk, Spider-Man 2, etc.), Kevin Feige became President of Marvel Studios in 2007 and has since developed and overseen the insanely successful and influential Marvel Cinematic Universe.




Not only did Marvel create the first shared universe between their superhero films, but almost every one of their movies has been consistently successful. The Avengers was the first Marvel film to gross over a billion dollars, and Iron Man 3 soon followed. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, their ninth and latest film, is currently sitting at the top of the box office for its third week in a row.

Feige’s legacy at Marvel Studios has been firmly cemented, but this hasn’t stopped him from continuing to push for bigger and better films. Speaking with Empire Magazine, Feige teased a few of those bigger and better films. Specifically, Edgar Wright’s upcoming Ant-Man and its connection to The Avengers: Age of Ultron. He also commented on Batman vs. Superman moving to the same weekend as Captain America 3.

But first, Feige confirmed not only that Thanos will appear in this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy, he also hinted at the casting, saying, “There is an actor. I’m not sure we want to announce it yet.” Which could mean one of two things, seeing as we don’t know how Thanos is going to be realized in Guardians.

If Thanos will again be created through CGI, then it’s possible the actor Feige is speaking of is another placeholder (like Damion Poitier in The Avengers). Then again, it’s only a matter of time before Thanos appears in the MCU in a meaningful way. If the studio has an actor in mind, why not bring him in as soon as possible and begin laying the groundwork for Thanos’ grand entrance? Feige doesn’t elaborate, so we might not know anymore until the release of Guardians.


Moving on to Ant-Man, Feige reveals it’s a film that’s been key to the MCU for years, and in fact, it appears Ant-Man is what set a lot of their earlier films in motion:

“It was two things – a story Edgar wanted to tell that we’ll see with Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd, and now we’re 11 films in, it’s looking at the characters we’ve already introduced who already have the technology and the brains to do…certain things [laughs].

“We changed, frankly, some of the MCU to accommodate this version of ‘Ant-Man.’ Knowing what we wanted to do with Edgar and with ‘Ant-Man,’ going years and years back, helped to dictate what we did with the roster for ‘Avengers’ the first time. It was a bit of both in terms of his idea for the ‘Ant-Man’ story influencing the birth of the MCU in the early films leading up to ‘Avengers.’ “

This sure sounds like Wright was crucial to the inception of the MCU. It also sounds like Feige is implying that whomever’s responsible for Ultron – the “endearing and funny and strange” villain of The Avengers 2 - is someone we’ve already met, and that his creation is also related to Wright’s original Ant-Man pitch.

With such a vague comment it’s hard to be sure, but the current accepted theory is that Tony Stark will be the creator of Ultron. If Feige isn’t referring to Ultron, then perhaps he’s talking about Vision, another technologically advanced character expected in Avengers 2 and one with even closer ties to Tony.


Whether Tony is responsible for Ultron, Vision, or both, it’s possible he doesn’t do the work alone. In the comics, it’s Hank Pym who is responsible for Ultron, so it isn’t out of the question to speculate the character will still play some role in Ultron’s creation in the MCU. If so, the consequences of that and the subsequent fallout from the events of Avengers 2 will surely factor into whatever Pym does in Ant-Man.

And truthfully, we don’t even know how large a role Pym has to play in Ant-Man. Feige explains the general jist of Rudd’s Scott Lang character and it gives the impression Ant-Man will focus almost entirely on his redemption arc from thief to hero:

“Look at that origin of the petty crook who comes into contact with a suit and does his best to make good, and then look at someone like Paul Rudd, who can do slightly unsavoury things like break into people’s houses and still be charming and who you root for and whose redemption you will find satisfaction in.”

Leaving all this speculation aside, Feige is all too aware of the recent readjustment to Batman vs. Superman‘s release date and how it now pits the film against Captain America 3, but he isn’t fazed:

“We had the flag there first. What other people do and where has always been less of our concern. It’s about keeping our head down and doing what we would believe would be cool for an audience to see.”

And honestly, keeping their eyes on their on work and not bothering with what the “other people” are doing seems to be working out just fine for Marvel. Though it’s worth noting that Disney’s Alan Thorn recently said they werestruggling with” releasing Cap 3 at the same time as Batman vs. Superman, so it may not be up to Feige in the end.

Feige currently has a lot of spinning plates over at Marvel, but which are you most excited to finally see: Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy? Ultron in Avengers 2? Or Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man? Drop a line in the comments below!


Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters on August 1, 2014, The Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015, and Ant-Man on July 17, 2015.




Sounds to me that the MCU has been shaped quite a bit by Ant-man after all, I really hope they have some great tie-in plots planned, specialy in regards to Pym

apperently someone got an early look at the next trailer




‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Trailer #2 Details: Rocket Raccoon and Groot Come To Life

Published by Rob Keyes



Movie fans got an early official look at Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy when its first teaser trailer premiered during Jimmy Kimmel Live in mid-February, followed up by a series of character videos, promotional artwork and a poster that fittingly read “you’re welcome.” It was an adequate and exciting intro for fans of the GOTG comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe but it needed a lot of exposition for casual moviegoers who never heard of the cosmic team of misfits before.





That trailer placed the spotlight on the studio’s newest lead superhero played by Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation), but didn’t give any dialogue to his team, even forgoing the introduction of several key supporting characters – characters that writer and director James Gunn said would be reserved for the next full trailer. With the 2014 summer movie season nearly upon us, beginning with the release of another Marvel-licensed property in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on May 2nd, followed by Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past three weeks later, that trailer is nearly here.

Latino-Review got an early look at a rough cut of the next Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, the first real trailer if we label the first one a teaser, and it includes plenty of new shots and more importantly, the voices of heroic team. They’ve got a detailed, chronological breakdown of what’s likely going to be in the final cut of the trailer but here are the highlights:

  • Begins with familiar (but extended) scene of Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou) and Star-Lord scene with the orb and subsequent chase before Marvel logo appears.
  • There are more shots of the ‘hero ship’ (the Milano) from the exterior and interior with the Guardians onboard, several shots of it in space.
  • Trailer features another roll call of the team, this time by Quill, describing himself as a thief, Gamora as an assassin, Groot and Rocket Raccoon as “two criminals” and Drax the Destroyer as a “maniac.” The voiceover is cut with new shots of the characters including one of Groot tossing someone.
  • We see Star-Lord with the mysterious orb and later in the trailer, Drax holding it as well.
  • There’s a big shot of Ronan the Accuser approaching the camera, in his ship and wielding his hammer (the “Universal Weapon” in Marvel Comics).
  • Lots of shots of explosions and mayhem, including exterior wide shots of the people of Xandar (the beautiful and peaceful Nova Corps space police homeworld) running on the bridge (from last year’s London set photos).
  • We get to meet Nova Prime Irani Rael (Glenn Close), leader of the Nova Corps, referring to the Guardians of the Galaxy as “thugs.” It’s very evident that Xandar is in danger from Ronan and his massive ship.
  • The Guardians are shown uniting, ready for battle and we finally get to hear Bradley Cooper’s excited and confident Rocket Raccoon voice (as he locks and loads an over-sized canon, of course).
  • We see Knowhere, the space station built from a disembodied head of a Celestial, where parts of the film take place (it’s the Guardians’ base of operations in the comics).
  • There are more shots of Groot, fighting something equally as large as him, and in a different shot we see him grow additional spiky branches from his back.
  • There are also some cool action shots of Gamora and Drax, and more of The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) and Nebula (Karen Gillan).
  • The theme of the trailer is the origin of this team and how Star-Lord rallies them together, similar to how he does in the books but for seemingly different reasons.
  • Yes, there’s more classic rock in the trailer.

Unfortunately, no mention of Michael Rooker’s Yondu character or Thanos – who we know is in the film, will be digitally animated and has already been cast


You’re Welcome

With some of the year’s biggest films debuting in the lucrative month of May, we expect to see the second Guardians of the Galaxy trailer to come alongside one of them, likely a Marvel one which has us thinking X-Men: Days of Future Past. After all, the film opens less than two months later and you can bet on Disney and Marvel going to the extreme with marketing their obscure property in its risky August release date.

Fun fact: At the time of this writing, there are 99 days left until GOTG hits theaters.

Small update on big hero 6




Disney Marvel’s Animated ‘Big Hero 6′ Reveals Voice Actor Casting

Published by Robert Yaniz Jr.



Thor and Iron Man may not have been among the most well-known Marvel properties prior to their respective film franchises. However, both characters are decidedly more popular than the title that Marvel ultimately decided would be its first collaboration with Walt Disney Animation Studios (since the Mouse House acquired the comic book company back in 2009).





Big Hero 6 – which marks Disney Animation’s first release since the Oscar-winning Frozen phenomenon hit theaters – follows a team of heroes recruited by the Japanese government. The characters were introduced in the late 1990s and featured in their own mini-series in 2008. Yet, despite the fact that the film’s release is less than six months away, news of the production has been relatively scant. Now, we at least have an idea of whose voices the film will feature.

According to The Wrap, Saturday Night Live alum Maya Rudolph will voice one of the film’s main characters, though there’s no indication which character she will play. Jamie Chung, who will next appear as the deadly Miho (replacing Devon Aoki) in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, has also been confirmed for the film as GoGo Tomago, one of its titular heroes. T.J. Miller (How to Train Your Dragon 2) has also been rumored for the film, though his involvement has yet to be officially announced.


Considering that Big Hero 6 is a more obscure title, it’s interesting to note that Disney and Marvel don’t appear to be casting big-name movie stars in the film. That being said, Chung and Rudolph both possess voice acting experience and should be able to bring the material to life. Of course, it’s hard to gauge just how well-suited Rudolph is for the unannounced role she’s playing. However, if it is truly a lead role, she could very well be providing the voice of Sunpyre or Honey Lemon, as they are the only other female members of Big Hero 6.

Disney veterans Chris Williams and Don Hall are directing the film, and while it may be one of Marvel’s more unexpected projects, it’s also one of the most difficult to pinpoint, given the level of secrecy surrounding the entire production. The concept art that we’ve seen thus far, however, is promising, and there’s every reason at this point to think that the talent behind the film could pull it together into a satisfying cinematic experience.

Are you looking forward to Big Hero 6? Does the casting of Rudolph and Chung change your opinion of the project?


Big Hero 6 hits theaters on November 7, 2014.
