Kevin Feige tells us everything he can on Marvel's Phase Three

Will there be a Black Widow standalone movie? When will we get to see Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther? Which actress will be cast as Captain Marvel? Is Benedict Cumberbatch going to be Doctor Strange?

With Marvel, every major announcement begets a waterfall of followup questions. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige indulged a group of journalists following Tuesday’s massive information dump (read Anthony Breznican’s play-by-play here) with some teases, some specifics and a whole bunch of misdirects. Here’s what we learned:

Benedict Cumberbatch in talks to play Doctor Strange

The search for Marvel’s Doctor Strange has been long and winding, but it seems to have landed on a Doctor who will make the Internet extremely happy. Sources confirm reports that Benedict Cumberbatch is in talks to take on the role of Stephen Strange, the selfish and superficial neurosurgeon who recovers from car-crash injuries to become the Sorcerer Supreme, the planet’s mystical defender.

Scott Derrickson is directing the standalone Doctor Strange movie, which already has a release date of July 8, 2016. Cumberbatch is an attractive choice to play the magical superhero, but he wasn’t the first name to surface for the role. Jared Leto, Justin Theroux, and Tom Hardy all bubbled to the surface of previous media reports, and Marvel engaged in serious talks with Joaquin Phoenix, who reportedly backed out because of the substantial multi-picture commitment that Marvel expects from its superheroes.

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' trailer is here: What we learned

Not even 24 hours after it was announced, a grainy first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked online Wednesday night. Now, Marvel’s official (and far prettier) trailer is here.

Here’s what we learned:

Ultron really is terrifying. Almost all of the dialogue in the trailer comes from the big bad himself. It’s really hard to overstate how great James Spader’s performance is—he doesn’t sound like a machine. He sounds frighteningly alive as he quotes lines from the classic Pinocchio song “I’ve Got No Strings.”

Globe-spanning adventure. From mountaintops to snowy forests to crowded cities, Age of Ultron will take place all over the world.

The Avengers will be shattered. There’s a sense of hopelessness to the whole affair, a very Empire Strikes Back sort of vibe. The heroes look overwhelmed, Thor drops his hammer in despair, we see a glimpse of Cap’s shield broken, and Bruce Banner stumbles through the snow.

Hulkbuster. We’ve been teased with art of Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor going up against the big green guy himself for a while now, and the big fight is prominently featured in the trailer.

The twins. Newcomers Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch get a lot of screen time, but not much context. They’re important, but we don’t know why just yet.

It’s all Tony’s fault. Because it is.

Coming off the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, everyone wanted to get their hands on Rocket Racoon and Groot figures, plushies, posters–basically anything that evoked the breakout characters. But Disney may face some competition with…itself, and that’s all thanks to Baymax in Big Hero 6.

At Disney’s New York Comic Con panel, several new scenes were shown from the film, which releases on Nov. 7. And while all of the titular heroes enjoyed some time in the spotlight, from the first to the last scene, the film’s robotic healthcare specialist Baymax stole the show.

Hiro Hamada gets diagnosed with puberty in first 'Big Hero 6' clip

Big Hero 6, the first animated Disney film to pull from the company’s acquisition of Marvel, appears to be sticking to both its superheroic and animated roots by keeping things funny amid all the action. As first seen in the initial trailer, the amusing interplay between protagonist Hiro Hamada and his personal healthcare companion Baymax has been paramount to selling the film. The first full clip from Big Hero 6 is no exception, showing off a hilarious encounter between the two in Hiro’s bedroom.

In the scene, Baymax, who previously belonged to Hiro’s brother Tadashi, responds with excessive concern to Hiro’s minor yelp of pain. Impelled to help, however, Baymax presses Hiro to find out what’s wrong despite the young boy’s protests.

First Look: Paul Rudd's 'Ant-Man' is looking for trouble

It’s Day 2 of the Ant-Man shoot, and it looks like things are going pretty rough for Paul Rudd’s character already.

In this first image from the film, which began principal photography in — you guessed it — San Francisco yesterday, Marvel Studios is sending a very specific message: from his pseudo-Rocky attire, to the far-off expression of weary concern, and the bandages over his right eyebrow … the hero of Ant-Man is a fighter.

And he looks like he just got his ass kicked.
