Kevin Feige: Naaaah, no Fantastic Four in the MCU any time soon. Nope. Unh-uhh.

Not a chance of it happening.  Swamp gas reflecting off of Venus.  Fer sure. Kevin Feige is absolutely saying that:

“No, because any of that deal would take a while to get going and years from whenever and if ever it happens. So, certainly it won’t impact the five movies we’ve announced, and it probably wouldn’t impact anything for a handful of years after that. Because really, we’re not thinking about that. We’re thinking of delivering on what we promised. Any movie, especially for any characters we don’t have the rights to yet until someone tells us we do, would be even further after that.”

Just like Avi Arad was pooh-poohing any thought of Spider-Man playing second fiddle in the MCU: (more…)

And so begins Infinity War spoilers watch.

Movie’s premiering tonight, embargo drops tomorrow(?), I’m seeing it Friday, and after that spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War will no longer be my active problem. I ain’t going to spoil it, myself, although since it’s a two-parter I assume that people are going to be really pumped up about figuring out How It All Ends.  Entertainingly, I’m actually more excited about Deadpool 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp — and the Aquaman movie, because I heard that the film tested really well with the live audiences.

So no spoilers here for at least the first two weeks. After that, missing the movie is probably more of a life choice for people anyway.

PS: I’m probably going to go see Solo, sure.  I don’t think that I can avoid it.  Maybe it won’t suck.

Week to go on Avengers: Infinity War.

Grabbed my ticket for a Friday morning showing, because, well, I can.  It’s being said right now that Avengers: Infinity War is selling out theaters like gangbusters, but I still got a nice seat.  And just in that sweet spot between the kids going to school and me having to pick up the kids from school.  This should work out rather nicely and I won’t have to sneak out during my son’s birthday weekend. Which I probably wouldn’t have bone, anyway, but this way there’s no scheduling conflict. (more…)

Avengers: Infinity War projected for 200+ Million opening.

Disney’s low-balling their own number, of course — they’re saying it’ll ‘only’ be $175 million or more — but the rest of the people in the industry are saying that Avengers: Infinity War will hit over 200 million in its opening weekend.  Will it?  I’m of several minds on this one. (more…)

Tweet of the Day, I’ll Take #2, #4, and #5, Please edition.

In a pinch I’ll settle for just #4.

Realistically speaking, #5 is almost certain.

Would this be worth letting Thanos win?

Well, obviously not.

But the basic point is correct: Marvel has an obvious way to rejuvenate the MCU, doesn’t it?

Moe Lane

PS: There is a rumor of a possibility of a hint that Silver Surfer might have a walk-on role of some kind in Infinity War.  Not to get your hopes up, or anything.  And if that sounds like something would have leaked, well: you’d say the same of Spider-Man showing up in Civil War.

Hey. Hey. It’s the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer. Hey.

Yeah.

We are going to have ourselves a TIME, here. Avengers: Infinity War comes out April 27th.

Moe Lane

PS: Now would be a good time for Nick Fury to pop back in, by the way.

Gemma Chan cast as Kree villain in Captain Marvel movie.

The casting on the Captain Marvel flick looks pretty good: “[Gemma Chan] joins a cast that includes Brie Larson as the title hero along with Samuel L. Jackson as a younger (and two-eyed) Nick Fury, with DeWanda Wise (She’s Gotta Have It), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One, Ready Player One), and Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes). The film will be a “period piece” for Marvel Studios and take place in the early 1990s with the Skrulls as the primary villains.” …they got Jude Law? Ah, he’s going to be the male lead (Mar-vell) and Mendelsohn is going to be the male villain.  That sounds promising, not least because Jude Law is a little bit crazy. Not bad crazy, interesting crazy: (more…)

My mini-review for Black Panther.

Short version: nice. Good flick. The wife and I had an excellent time watching it, then we went out for beer and meatballs. Which has nothing to do with Black Panther, but they were excellent meatballs and I like the current seasonal Sam Adams.
