Marvel and its president Kevin Feige reportedly have a plan of superhero films mapped out until 2028, but with Comic-Con right around the corner and Guardians of the Galaxy poised to rocket into theaters on Aug. 1, Disney teased its Marvel Cinematic Universe release plans for the next five years. The studio’s comic-book blockbusters for the next two years are already on the books, but the new news includes five still-untitled Marvel films spanning between the summers of 2017 and 2019.

Black Widow is in mama-bear mode. Mark Ruffalo has his fingers in his ears, trying desperately not to Hulk out as Scarlett Johansson fires a pistol at a robotic menace that is shooting up the bar where they’re hiding. Or, wait a second …
Is that her?
“We only serve real Scarlett here,” deadpans Avengers: Age of Ultron writer-director Joss Whedon. But that’s not exactly true. READ FULL STORY
An unforgiving artificial intelligence program gets top billing in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but there will be plenty of pain caused by a pair of twins and a being known as a “synthezoid,” too.
Among the new characters in next May’s superhero team-up are Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch and the synthetic humanoid creation known as The Vision. The trio has been a long part of Avengers comic-book history, though their allegiance is always questionable.
This time around, there’s no doubt: they’re troublemakers—although you can’t rule out salvation for them.
“They’re on Team Ultron, which makes things really hard for the Avengers because all of sudden they’re dealing with powers that they’re not used to,” says director Joss Whedon. READ FULL STORY
“Who’s Ultron?” This was what Captain America himself, Chris Evans, said at Comic-Con last year after finishing his Hall H Winter Soldier presentation and heading backstage to do some press.
He had missed the finale of the Marvel Studios showcase, which revealed the Avengers sequel would be subtitled “Age of Ultron,” with a plot centered on that fearsome artificial-intelligence whose robotic face looks like a grinning metallic vampire skull.
Given the studio’s intense devotion to secrecy, both he and Scarlett Johansson had no idea who they’d be battling the next time the Avengers reunited.
It’s okay to forgive them a moment of uncertainty. There are plenty of fans out there who have come to this fantasy universe through the movies, and not the comic books.
So here, finally, is the movie’s answer to that question: Who IS Ultron?
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t hit theaters until August, but if you’re excited about the prospect of a movie starring Chris Pratt, Green Zoe Saldana, a raccoon voiced by a sexiest man a live and a tree voiced by Dominic Toretto, then you’ll be excited to learn that Marvel is screening some footage early. 150 IMAX theaters will play a 17-minute sequence from Galaxy on July 7, at 7 PM. Tickets are free and are first-come-first-serve on the Facebook page, which probably means it’s already sold out. READ FULL STORY
Prometheus co-writer Jon Spaihts is in early talks to write the script for Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie. Sources close to the project confirm Deadline‘s report that Marvel is looking to Spaihts—the initial writer on Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel who’s also penning Universal’s upcoming Mummy reboot—to launch Strange as another potential franchise. Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer (Conan the Barbarian reboot) had penned a script for the studio a few years ago. Scott Derrickson (The Day the Earth Stood Still) is directing.
In the comic books, Dr. Stephen Strange is an arrogant surgeon who loses his ability to operate when his hands are damaged in a car accident. Searching for a cure, he meets an ancient healer in Tibet, who then makes Strange his apprentice. The healer introduces Strange into the world of magic and sorcery, and upon his death, the Doctor assumes the role of Sorcerer Supreme, defender of mankind from enemies both natural and supernatural. Strange got name-checked in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, so he could also pop up in an upcoming Avengers movie—they’re a group he occasionally teamed with in the comic books.

We’re in for some tough fluff.
Disney has released new posters for the upcoming animated feature Big Hero 6. The posters feature Hiro Hamada, a young robotics prodigy and our hero, trying to fit armor on his large robot companion, Baymax (though not without a bit of struggle). READ FULL STORY
Marvel fans were sure getting antsy.
Two weeks after director and co-writer Edgar Wright dropped out of Ant-Man over creative clashes with the studio, a new filmmaker has been hired to keep the July 2015 movie on track.
Peyton Reed (The Break-Up, Bring It On) will take over the action-adventure about a hero who can shrink to tiny sizes while still packing a massive punch. Adam McKay, the director best known for the Anchorman movies, was among those rumored to be taking the helm of Ant-Man, but the studio revealed today he will instead rewrite the script by Wright and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block.)
Marvel Studios just lost a director for Ant-Man, but it appears they’ve found a director to bring another beloved off-mainstream superhero to the big screen. Variety reports that Marvel is looking to sign Scott Derrickson to make Doctor Strange, a film about the Master of the Mystic Arts and his battles with various magical, psychedelically-dressed villains. Derrickson is a horror director best known for Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, plus the upcoming Deliver Us from Evil (a.k.a. “the movie with the scary stuffed owl.”) Derrickson also directed Keanu Reeves’ The Day The Earth Stood Still.
