Marvel Provides Info on ‘Captain America 3: Civil War’ and ‘The Avengers: Infinity War’ Parts 1 and 2
Marvel’s upcoming movie slate continues to be worked out. The latest news brings the new Captain America 3 film title and also the unveiling that the third Avengers movie will not actually be the last in the planned trilogy but rather a Harry Potter/Hunger Games style film that is to be divided into two movies. Shocking! That is an original idea Marvel. I’m glad you came up with it. I am sure that it is only with the intent of providing the best possible experience creatively for those behind the project and nothing to do with money. That’s refreshing. Here is the full slate now, as provided by Deadline:
Here’s Marvel’s updated release slate:
May 5, 2015 – Avengers: Age Of Ultron
July 17, 2015 – Ant-Man
May 6, 2016 – Captain America: Civil War
November 4, 2016 – Doctor Strange
May 5, 2017 – Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 (previously July 28, 2017)
July 28, 2017 – Thor: Ragnarok
November 3, 2017 – Black Panther
May 4, 2018 – Avengers: Infinity War – Part I
July 6, 2018 – Captain Marvel
November 2, 2018 – The Inhumans
The cast and crew of The Avengers apparently had some fun making a make-believe movie that would go on to set the box office ablaze. In this video, which is owned by Marvel, many of the stars of the cast are shown with laughs, gags, in-jokes and more. From villains to the heroes, from Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo to Liam Hemsworth, many of your favorite and least favorite castmates are here. You’ll also notice the use of green screen technology in most of these shots, which further emphasizes how little a big and audacious film like The Avengers can be. Check ou the video and enjoy. Thanks to THR for the shout out.
‘The Avengers’ Director Joss Whedeon Narrates A Fight Between Iron Man and Thor In Video Clip
To say that The Avengers will be the biggest movie of the summer is no stretch. It debuts on Friday, but internationally has already smashed records in just a few days. The movie has “hit” written all over it and it has therefore been discussed on every blog imaginable. We have so many post tagged the avengers we don’t know what to do anymore. Yet again, here is another in anticipation of the film’s release this week. In this video clip, exclusive to Yahoo!, the director Joss Whedon (soon to be a mega millionaire with this film’s success) talks about a fight scene between Thor and Iron Man. Check it out for yourself below. We really have nothing more to say.
Here is a special edition of our usual weekly movie posters post, featuring several Mondo posters for next week’s The Avengers movie release. These posters, in addition to the few we’ve seen before, are for The Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye and Thor. Might I say, bravo. Job well done overall. These are certainly better than the minimalist Black Widow one we saw recently.
Check out these special limited edition one sheets below and let us know what you think. Are these something you would buy? Collectors apparently are showing great interest already. The franchise film is off to a big buzz already. Enjoy.
Marvel’s The Avengers Film Clips Show More Fun and Even, Gasp…Suspense
There are two more The Avengers movie clips that have been released to us, further showcasing what we can expect from this summer’s most anticipated film. According to tracking data within the industry, the expectations are The Avengers will open to $150,000. Tracking is stronger for this film than it was for The Hunger Games, which has only won the box office crown for 4 straight weekends and The Dark Knight Rises, which really surprises me considering that it is the final crown in the trilogy. Our poll (see sidebar) shows the same. Still, the concept of seeing all these superheroes in one film can’t be denied.
These two clips differ in tone. One features Nick Fury chatting up a detained Loki, with Black Widow and Thor looking on. The other showcases a brawl between Iron Man and Thor, which is really unexpected that this would be released prior to the film. Not that we didn’t know already, but apparently we can be prepared for plenty of in-fighting to see which Avenger is the toughest. My money is on Hawkeye…kidding. The movie clips…
Another New ‘The Avengers’ Movie Scene with Tony Stark and Loki
Can this movie get here already? Answer: Very soon, as it is premiering tonight a few miles from here in Los Angeles. We have seen a steady procession of new clips from the would be blockbuster over the past week or two. First, a Black Widow scene. Yesterday, a more cerebral scene with Agent Hill and Nick Fury. Today, we get a confrontation between Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark and villain Loki. An introduction to The Avengers follows. I will say – the tone is a little too snarky for me, a little too tongue in cheek to have any air of seriousness, but that has been the theme all along these past few weeks, so I suppose that is what we can expect from the film. There will be no The Dark Knight-type of brooding here. Oh well, let’s hope it turns out good.
Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ New Video Clip From Late Show
The Avengers continues to eek out video clips from the movie, bit by bit. First we saw Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widowkick some ass and now, another female star, Cobie Smulders as agent Maria Hill, conferring with Sam L. Jackson’s Nick Fury about tactics. Nothing too special here, but it is interesting to note that the first few clips have focused on female characters. Is this an attempt to satiate the young male libido or to draw in more female viewers to the sure to be testosterone-laden action epic? Is it neither or both? You be the judge. Enjoy the clip below and let us know what you think.
