Marvel Studios: Comic-Con Live-Blog: 'Ant-Man,' 'Ultron,' and 'Guardians 2'

Ten minutes after the grand finale of Comic-Con is supposed to start in the 6,100-seat Hall H, a chant begins: “We want Marvel! We want Marvel! We want Marvel!”

They got what was coming to them.

The lights went down soon after, and the panel began with a reel of highlights from all the past Marvel movies, leading into a new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy (which comes out next Friday.) It ends with a long look at Josh Brolin as the cosmic villain Thanos in a throne that is free-floating in space.

“It always starts with you guys in this room,” said Kevin Feige, chief of Marvel Studios, as he took the stage. “What we’re going to talk about today is 2015. We have a movie called Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out. Then we have something new—Ant-Man is finally coming out.” READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con fans may want to spin a top to make sure they’re not dreaming: The man behind Inception and The Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan, made his first-ever appearance at the San Diego fan convention Thursday to show off his upcoming sci-fi epic Interstellar.

Robert Downey Jr. on 'Iron Man 4': 'Why give up the belt?'

Are we going to get another Iron Man movie?

Marvel Studios has been unequivocal: Yes, someday. They see Tony Stark as being just as evergreen as James Bond. But the unanswered follow-up is: Will a fourth movie be with Robert Downey Jr., the star who helped launch this entire universe of interlocked superhero films?

Everyone is playing coy on that front, but we may find out more this weekend when Marvel starts filling in the blanks on all those untitled movies that have been dated through 2019.

On the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, EW asked Downey point-blank: Does he want to star in an Iron Man 4?

His answer wasn’t so point-blank. In fact, he starts to sound a little like a Magic 8-Ball as he tries to keep it vague. But the answer I gleaned was: Signs point to yes.

Mark Ruffalo on the foe Hulk needs for a stand-alone movie

Ever since The Avengers debuted two years ago, fans have been demanding: When is Mark Ruffalo going to get a stand-alone movie as the Hulk?

With Marvel Studios recently announcing a slate of seven untitled movies that spans into 2019, it’s possible we may get an answer to the question at Comic-Con this week.

If a Hulk movie isn’t among them, the answer is probably: Never. At least, not with Ruffalo in the lead, since he has been open about the fact that his own age, 46, starts to become a problem for a superhero—especially if we’re looking more than five years down the line.

Ruffalo follows Eric Bana and Edward Norton as the third actor to take on the character in recent years, and in an interview with EW, he weighed in on the possibility of starring in a solo Hulk movie.

The actor said he has been giving it a lot of thought (and we’re guessing he wouldn’t be doing that if it weren’t at least a possibility.)

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man will grapple with Hulk in Tony Stark’s ginormous “Hulkbuster” armor. But Ruffalo’s view of Hulk’s greatest foe is not what you might expect …

Also in negotiations to join the cast is another Academy Award nominee, Alan Alda, for an unspecified role, according to DreamWorks Pictures, which is co-financing the untitled project with 20th Century Fox.

A few weeks ago, J.J. Abrams offered fans a chance to win a walk-on role in the new Star Wars movie, and as that contest draws to a close he has unveiled a new clip from the set—this time showing off another old favorite from the galaxy.

It’s a post-Empire X-Wing fighter, dented and battle-burned. It’s even clear that pilot fashions haven’t changed much since the Return of the Jedi days.

Box-office report: 'Apes' counterattacks, 'Purge' taken down a peg

Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s… After a Friday night showdown that heavily tipped the scales in favor of the survival-horror thriller The Purge: Anarchy, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes came back strong this weekend to take the No. 1 spot at the box office.

The Apes sequel, starring motion-capture master Andy Serkis as the hyper-evolved higher primate named Caesar, collected $36 million for the weekend, according to Sunday estimates. Meanwhile, The Purge: Anarchy, a follow-up to last year’s nightmare-inducer about a 12-hour period when no crime is illegal, garnered only $28.3 million.

Box-office update: 'Purge' beats 'Apes' with a $13 million Friday

The Apes don’t have chest-beating rights in the Friday box office, having surrendered their Darwinistic dominance to the apex predators of The Purge: Anarchy after only one week at the top.

The acclaimed sequel (of a reboot to a remake) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes collected $10.4 million last night in a rather precipitous 62 percent plunge from its $27.6 million debut last Friday, ceding the No. 1 slot to the survival-horror sequel The Purge: Anarchy, which transformed mayhem and savagery in the streets into a $13 million debut.
