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.

'Batman v Superman' versus 'Captain America': The superhero showdown that everybody won

It’s been a good year for Marvel. Correction: It’s been a great year for Marvel. First, Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened huge in April and remains the biggest blockbuster of the year so far, outgrossing its 2011 franchise-starter around the world by 92 percent! Then, last week, Guardians of the Galaxy delivered a giant weekend, vindicating Marvel’s long-range plans for deep-cut superheros. The outside-the-box space epic is even ahead of Winter Soldier‘s box-office pace after five days. And if that wasn’t enough to celebrate, yesterday, Marvel received perhaps its most enjoyable gift of all: Warner Bros. announced that it was moving Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice off its May 6, 2016 release date, avoiding a potential opening-weekend showdown with the next Captain America sequel.

The news was met with hoots of derision: Warner Bros. and DC Comics had blinked. “Bawk bawk bawk!!!! WB is chicken!!!!” screamed the always eloquent internet. “Notice that they waited until one week after Comic-Con to make this announcement so they could avoid the mocking Marvel fanboy laughter,” sneered another EW commenter.

That Warner Bros. then immediately unveiled release dates for nine untitled DC superhero movies through 2020 didn’t exactly help matters. “There was a collective eye roll,” says an industry source familiar with Marvel’s thinking. “It’s almost like DC’s trying to create this fictitious PR war or this fictitious date war, but they’re coming to a gun fight with a knife. Guardians was Marvel’s 10th No. 1 movie, and it broke the mold. It’s a raccoon and a bunch of misfits. So Monday, of course, Sony comes out with their female superhero message, and then DC comes out with untitled dates until 2020—on the heels of Time Warner kicking Fox out of bed and announcing their earnings this week. Don’t think that’s all a coincidence.”

That might all be true, but here’s the thing: moving Dawn of Justice up to March 25—a month traditionally considered a box-office dead zone—might just be a brilliant maneuver. “There’s that perception [that Warner Bros. retreated], but I think at the end of the day, he who wins is just the one who’s smart,” says Paul Dergarabedian, a senior media analyst for Rentrak. “They’re going to have an incredible amount of playing time before the Marvel movie kicks off. Putting this movie on a non-conventional date is going to pay big benefits for Warner Bros., for the theater owners—who love films that have legs—and for the audience. [Customers] will have a really cool movie to go out and see in March.” READ FULL STORY

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

Iron Man and Captain America make a wager in new 'Heroes United' movie

While the Avengers won’t return as a unit until next summer’s Age of Ultron, Marvel has had fun pairing them up in the animated world. Last year, Iron Man and Hulk reluctantly joined forces for the first Heroes United movie; this time, Tony Stark welcomes Captain America to the fray as they battle Red Skull and his Hydra henchman, Taskmasker.

As demonstrated in The Avengers, Steve Rogers and Tony aren’t exactly always on the same page. Their drastically different personalities often mean they get on each other’s nerves. In this clip from Iron Man & Captain America: Heroes United, the two friends playfully spar with all their best weapons and moves, then decide to make it interesting by agreeing to a little wager.

Fans who attended Preview Night  at San Diego Comic-Con and stopped by Marvel’s booth last night got a first look at two new concept art posters for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which arrives in theaters on May 1, 2015.

The first poster, drawn by Ryan Meinerding, features Iron Man blasting away one of Ultron’s robots. Things don’t look too good for Ultron’s robots in the second poster, which shows Scarlet Witch—played by Marvel film franchise newcomer Elizabeth Olsen—using her powers to fend off her attackers.
