Breaking Big: Welcome to The Show, Chadwick Boseman

“I don’t know who he is… or where he is… but he’s coming.” —Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) in 42

Jackie Robinson was already 28 when he made history, a grown man who’d struggled and thrived in relative anonymity before he was handpicked to be the first African-American player in modern baseball. Perhaps that’s why Chadwick Boseman so ably tapped into his character in the film, 42—he possessed the same hunger, the same desire.

For most of the moviegoing audience, Boseman was a promising rookie, an overnight success with a bright future. But the now-37-year-old actor had been a working actor for more than a decade, appearing in theater, television, and smaller films. Not until he put on Robinson’s Brooklyn Dodger uniform, however, did the Hollywood star machine take notice. READ FULL STORY

Marvel's Phase Three: A two-part 'Avengers' threequel, Black Panther movie, female Captain Marvel, and more ...

Marvel Studios spends most of its time clamping down on secrets, so when they open up the vault, it’s usually for something big. In this case, it was colossal—and bound to bust loose on its own.

Marvel announced so much news on Tuesday morning at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood, it’s difficult to know where to start: A two-part Avengers 3? Official confirmation that Iron Man and Captain America will do battle in a Civil War saga? More exploration of the cosmic realm in Inhumans?

It was also a major announcement in terms of diversity. Marvel is giving us its first superhero film to star a black actor, with Chadwick Boseman portraying Black Panther, and another that places a female character in the title role, Captain Marvel (although no actress has been chosen yet.)

The only way to approach it is to run through it in chronological order (before the Infinity Gauntlet renders time meaningless)

Marvel One-Shots: Might 'Agent Carter' clear way for Ms. Marvel, Loki, young Nick Fury, or Black Panther?

The Marvel One-Shots keep doubling down.

Last week, EW debuted the first look at Agent Carter, a new short starring Hayley Atwell that focuses on Captain America’s Peggy Carter as she makes the post-WWII transition into a chief operative for S.H.I.E.L.D.

When it debuts at Comic-Con this Friday night, fans will see a big leap forward in scale and style for the short-film series, just like last year’s Item 47, about a down-on-their-luck couple (Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford) who go on a robbery spree after activating one of the alien guns from The Avengers.

So where does the One-Shot series go from here?

Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito, who directed both Item 47 and Agent Carter, offered some insight by way of what almost was: a stand-alone Loki short, a young Nick Fury story, a visit to Black Panther’s Wakanda, and maybe (someday) a Ms. Marvel or Black Widow film.

Marvel's Phase Three: 'Doctor Strange,' 'Iron Man 4,' 'Hulk,' 'Inhumans' or 'Runaways' on horizon? -- EXCLUSIVE

Big things happen in threes.

With Iron Man 3 heading into its third weekend, now is the perfect time to look ahead to what Marvel Studios may be planning for its own third act — the evolving multi-movie slate known as Phase Three.

Phase One for the comic book studio was the series of films that culminated in last year’s The Avengers. Phase Two begins with Iron Man 3, and will build to Avengers 2 in 2015, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World, and Guardians of the Galaxy in between.

The question that still hasn’t been resolved, even internally at the studio… What comes next?

Report: 'Black Panther' movie roaring forward for Marvel Studios


UPDATE:
EW’s inside sources at Marvel say the report is entirely untrue, although studio reps decline to comment on the rumor.

The Wakanda tourism board should prepare to put in some overtime. They could soon become much more popular.

A report from the movie website Latino Review by writer El Mayimbe says Marvel Studios has committed to making one of its next projects a movie based on Black Panther, the leader of the fictional African nation and the character widely regarded as the first major black superhero.

True? False? Marvel Studios and parent company Disney did not immediately comment on the rumor, which has circulated far and wide, causing a sensation among comics fans. But now inside sources at Marvel tell EW that it’s simply not true that Black Panther will be one of their next films. READ FULL STORY
