These days, Marvel seems to be smashing its Hulk fist into every entertainment medium: movies (Captain America 2 broke April box office records), television (ABC will be premiering Agent Carter this fall, along with a second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), even amusement parks (visit Disneyland’s Tomorrowland and you can see Iron Man, Captain America and Thor.) Oh yeah, and there are also those Netflix shows. So it should come as no surprise that Disney Animation is now stepping into the world with the trailer debut for its futuristic film, Big Hero 6.

More gun fights. More spaceship explosions. More Peter Quill swagger. And more Groot.
Since last week, fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the newest trailer for Marvel’s upcoming intergalactic adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy — and its arrival did not disappoint. In addition to extended looks of our ragtag team in action (and do I mean action — check out those fights!) the trailer also gave us our first look at Glenn Close as Prime Rael, commander of the Nova forces, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, as well as another glimpse of Benicio Del Toro’s The Collector. (Still no glimpse of Thanos, though…) Watch the trailer below:
'Guardians of the Galaxy': Chris Pratt's muscles and his team of space misfits star in the second teaser -- VIDEO
Marvel Studios is offering another peek at what space saga Guardians of the Galaxy will deliver when it hits theaters on Aug. 1. And by peek, we mean a blink-and-you-miss-it teaser.
The 24-second clip is a preview of the film’s second trailer, scheduled for release Monday at 1 p.m. ET on Facebook. A live Q&A with cast members Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, and Karen Gillan and director James Gunn will accompany the world premiere of the new trailer.
Until then, enjoy Pratt’s crazy-ripped physique, which appears to get as much screen time as any character in the new teaser: READ FULL STORY
ORIGINAL POST: As kryptonite is to Superman, so a kegger is to Spider-Man. That seems to be the lesson of this weekend’s box office, anyway.
Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s new frat comedy Neighbors drank in an estimated $19.6 million at the box office on Friday, almost twice as much as the $10.1m which was caught in the web of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Sony is projecting its superhero sequel will gross $37 million for the weekend, which would give it a cumulative domestic take of $147m by the end of Sunday.
Samuel L. Jackson has been in most of the blockbuster Avengers-universe movies, but even Nick Fury can’t compete with the superhero ubiquity of Stan Lee. The comic book legend has had winking cameos in 18 different Marvel movies since X-Men premiered in 2000, but he’s usually limited himself to movies based on characters he helped create. Well, that’s about to change. READ FULL STORY
They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. But in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it’s getting harder for the superhero to tell the difference. In the latest installment from Marvel Studios’ interlocked franchise, Chris Evans’ unfrozen genetically-enhanced warrior from the Greatest Generation is still unsure of his place in the world after helping to save it twice: once from the forces of Red Skull in 2011’s original Captain America, and again from an alien invasion in 2012’s The Avengers.
The Winter Soldier features an eponymous new villain — a bioengineered assassin with a mechanical arm—who is targeting the leadership of the global protection force S.H.I.E.L.D. The film, directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo (already being courted by Marvel for more), reteams Evans with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury as top operatives for the group. But Cap (alias Steve Rogers) is beginning to question whether he and S.H.I.E.L.D. are on the same side. Sebastian Stan plays the Winter Soldier, and anyone who saw the first film knows his character’s history with Rogers runs deep. If there’s an overall theme in the movie, it’s this: Old friends make the worst enemies.
EW visited the set of The Winter Soldier last July. It’s the day after Comic-Con ended. Footage screened for fans at the annual convention had lathered the geeky faithful into a frenzy, but no one is celebrating on set. Instead of passing around high fives, the cast members are punching each other in the face. READ FULL STORY
'X-Men: Apocalypse': Who will return? What new mutants may appear? Scoop on the next X-Men film -- EXCLUSIVE
We’re still weeks away from the unveiling of Fox’s ginormous X-Men: Days of Future Past (the cover of this week’s EW) but, fittingly, director Bryan Singer and producer/writer Simon Kinberg can only look ahead: The pair are developing, along with X2 writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, the next X-Men film, Apocalypse, slated for May 27, 2016. Not much about the film is known, but Singer says that the film will be “somewhat” based on the 1990 comic storyline “Age of Apocalypse,” which features ancient villain Apocalypse and imagines an alternate universe. “[The movie] won’t necessarily create an alternate universe, but there may be some swapping things that I’m playing with,” admits Singer. Adds Kinberg, “From a visual standpoint it actually may be a bigger movie than Days of Future Past because there’ll be disaster movie imagery, like the title would imply.” READ FULL STORY
Looks like Steve Rogers really is giving the orders now.
After about a month of rumored speculation, Marvel has officially confirmed that Captain America and his trusty vibranium shield will leap back onto the big screen on May 6, 2016 — meaning everyone’s favorite red, white, and blue super soldier will be facing off against another pair of costumed heroes in Warner Bros.’ Batman vs. Superman.

Comic book season is upon us, and there’s no turning back.
Disney and Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the (lucky?) first one out of the gates. As has become standard for Marvel releases, the question is not whether it will open at No. 1 (there aren’t even any other movies opening wide this weekend!), but just where it will fall on the golden brand’s sliding scale of successes and super-successes. Modern Marvel cinematic universe adaptations have opened anywhere from $65 million (Captain America: The First Avenger) to $207 million (The Avengers).
Here’s how things might play out, and let us know your predictions in the comments. READ FULL STORY
