Come next year, Marvel Studios will be celebrating their tenth anniversary. Quite an achievement for a superhero movie studio owned by Disney. And what better way for them to commemorate such an occasion then to release the ensemble of ensembles, an Avengers film featuring heroes from not only across the globe but from galaxies far away as well. We were at D23 to see the very first look at Avenger: Infinity War, and as you can imagine, there was a lot to take in and a lot to get excited over. Check out our description of the footage here below.

Iron Man armors Avengers Infinity War

The Russo Brothers are in the midst of simultaneously shooting both Avengers: Infinity War and the tentatively titled Avengers 4. Not counting the marketing budget, the films’ combined production budget is, without a question, very high, considering that it touts one of the biggest ensemble casts anyone has ever seen.

Now a new report seems to confirm that notion, as the production budget reportedly goes as high as $1 billion. Yes, that’s with a B. No. There is no nefarious Doctor Evil laugh. More on the story below.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange Recruited For ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Doctor Strange

It is going to be hard to believe that any hero that has appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would not have a role in Avengers: Infinity War. Though the team is currently fractured, they would most likely have to put their differences aside to fight Thanos. As far as we know, the founding members, maybe the Guardians of the Galaxy, members of Team Iron Man and Team Captain America, Spider-Man, and Black Panther will all participate in the fight to defend Earth. Now it looks like they won’t be alone as Benedict Cumberbatch says Doctor Strange will be joining the fray.

More on the story below.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Now One Film, Second Half Becomes ‘Untitled Avengers’ Sequel
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Avengers: Infinity War Now One Film

Since it was first announced in October 2014, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War was intended to be the company’s biggest release to date. Intentions, much like the best of plans, tend to change over time.

Nearly two years have passed and what was initially slated to be a two-part feature that would close out Marvel’s Phase Three line-up with each installment released a year apart in May of 2018 and 2019, it appears that Infinity War will no longer be split in half, as confirmed recently by Disney. Instead it will now be a single film, with what was originally to be the second part of the epic that would unite the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe in glorious battle against the Mad Titan Thanos reconfigured as an untitled Avengers project. Release dates for the two films have not changed though.

Release Date: June 8, 2016
Cover Price: $0.99 (digital)

Looks like my birthday came a little early! Nothing makes me happier than seeing a little throwback to my youth, especially when it’s a crossover of two of my favorite shows. Batman ’66 Meets Steed and Mrs. Peel #1 brings my favorite DC hero face to face with my favorite British television characters (my apologies to The Doctor, but it’s true). I still stop and watch any Avengers episodes whenever I find them on television. And of course, Batman is probably more popular in my house than I am.

But enough about me, on to the review!

The Russo Brothers Confirm ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Films Will Be Retitled

Avengers: Infinity War Title Card

In 2014, Marvel made a huge announcement about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe saying that Phase 3 would end with a two-part Avengers film appropriately titled Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Part II. Most believed that the project was following the tradition of closing trilogies being split into two films. With the amount of characters involved throughout the entire three phases, it would probably be best to split it into two films so that the characters got their justified screen times. Now with the Captain America: Civil War press tour pretty much completed, The Russo Brothers are talking about Avengers: Infinity War, and have dropped one very revealing detail.

According to them, the Part I and Part II titles are “misleading.” More on the story here below.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Won’t Be A Traditional Two-Part Film

Guardians of the Galaxy villain Thanos

There has been a common theme for studios to turn the end of a film franchise into a two-part finale. Traditionally these two parters have the first half act as some sort of prologue with the final half being an explosive action-packed film.

However, Anthony and Joe Russo will be taking a different approach to Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Part II. Instead of the substandard film split into two parts, it seems as though they the two films won’t have much of anything to do with each other. Check out what they had to say below.

Joss Whedon On Why He Is No Longer Working On Marvel Films

Joss Whedon With Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner On The Set Of Avengers: Age Of Ultron

During the press junket for Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Age Of Ultron, director Joss Whedon had spoken about some of the difficulties he encountered during the production of the sequel. Despite some of these creative differences, Whedon still made it out with a semi-entertaining film, though many would agree that the Avengers sequel didn’t meet expectations, and falls short of being just as great as its predecessor. While Whedon was still able to offer us two exciting ensemble films, he is no longer obligated to work on anything Marvel-related – he had signed a contract to be a creative contributor for Phase 2.

Now that Whedon is done with superheroes, he talking about his experience working with Marvel Studios, and speaking out on why he is no longer working for them. Check out his comments below.
