Best of 2014: An oral history of Baymax's 'Big Hero 6' fist bump

The best part of Big Hero 6—the awesomely odd exploding-fist sound cuddly robot Baymax makes when bumping knuckles with his pal Hiro—comes as a delightful surprise for audiences…which is fitting, since it was initially received the same way by the guys who actually made the film. “I remember having that feeling of like, ‘That’s really weird and strange, and it’ll never make it into the movie,” says co-writer Robert Baird, who was listening when the voice of Baymax (30 Rock alum Scott Adsit) loosed his first “balalalalalala.”

Of course, there’s more to the story than that. It takes a village to make an animated movie—which is why EW chatted with four separate Big Hero crew members to get the full story behind the fist-bump. Click here for more of EW.com’s Best of 2014 coverage.

It's official: Benedict Cumberbatch is Marvel's Doctor Strange

On Thursday, Marvel finally confirmed one of its most fervently held rumors: Benedict Cumberbatch, fiancé to Sophie Hunter, husband to Tumblr, and America’s cool British friend, has been cast in the lead role in Dr. Strange.

Unlike another certain popular doctor, Dr. Stephen Strange is an accomplished surgeon who becomes Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme, which mostly means he gets to walk through otherworldly dimensions whilst wearing a really cool cape.

Here’s what Marvel has to say about it:

‘The actor will star in Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange,’ scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016. The film, directed by Scott Derrickson with Jon Spaihts writing the screenplay, will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.”

There will probably be a lot of memes over the next few days.

What 'Big Hero 6' could have learned from 'The Incredibles'

Ten years ago this month, Brad Bird’s animated adventure film The Incredibles debuted—and with its winning, funny story about a married pair of washed-up superheroes trying to raise kids and save the world at the same time, it immediately joined the canon of Disney/Pixar insta-classics.

Almost exactly one decade later, Disney released Big Hero 6, another story about a team of animated heroes. It’s not hard to spot connections between the two: They share similar color schemes and aesthetics, for example, and they both feature a titular group of crime-fighters trying to get (or regain) a grip on their abilities while battling a self-styled supervillain out for revenge.

But there’s plenty that separates the two films, besides a decade of animation advancements—and Big Hero 6 may have done well to lift more from its predecessor.

U.S. District Court grants subpoena over 'Avengers' trailer leak

Marvel’s response to the recent Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer leak was swift—soon after the video hit the web, the studio abandoned its plans to debut it during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D the following week and released their own, high-res version right away. It paid off, breaking streaming records despite the leak.

But the story doesn’t end there—on Marvel’s request, Google has been subpoenaed by a federal judge to produce information relating to the source of the leak. READ FULL STORY

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.

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.
