On April 22nd, 2016 I traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to visit the set of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. What follows is everything I learned while on the set of James Gunn‘s galactic sequel.
To keep the project on the right track, and to maintain the original creative team on Deadpool, Reynolds, as the screenwriters said on AMC’s Geeking Out (via Comic Book), made sure they were a part of the process every step of the way: “We were on set every day. Interestingly, Ryan wanted us there, we […]
Disney CEO Bob Iger recently sat down for an interview with BBC Newsbeat, and the head honcho at the House of Mouse had this to say about the future of Marvel on film: “Marvel, you’re dealing with thousands and thousands of characters — that will go on forever.” Marvel movies forever? But doesn’t he think […]
[Michael Fassbender] accepted very quickly. And it was the only actor which we thought was obvious. So we started with the actor, which is incongruous. Even more incongruous, he engaged us with nothing. There was no script, no studio or anything. We told him we were going to build the project together, we have a […]
Because of time zones and staggered release patterns, our friends over in Europe often get to see some of the biggest releases before we do in the United States. In fact, in the case of Marvel Studios’ productions or James Bond movies, they get to see them a few days earlier. Now, it sounds like […]

Here is the list of episodes along with the running times: 1×01 – AKA Ladies Night (52m) 1×02 – AKA Crush Syndrome (52m) 1×03 – AKA It’s Called Whiskey (54m) 1×04 – […]
While being diplomatic to the three previous films, DeKnight said this will be the most “Marvel” version of The Punisher. “The thing about The Punisher, and I think there are great things about each of those versions, but none of them was completely the Marvel version,” DeKnight said. “And none of those movies were under […]
The report comes from BBC News, which noticed that Jonathan Aris, who plays Anderson in BBC’s Sherlock and also appeared in Edgar Wright’s The World’s End, listed the gig on his Spotlight page. That’s essentially an official online CV used by actors and agents. Its also worth noting that the Spotlight listings for Star Wars: The […]
Now McAdams, who can currently be seen on HBO each Sunday in True Detective, as well as in theaters in Southpaw starting this weekend, has confirmed discussions about taking a role in the Marvel cinematic universe.

Today, Jurassic World officially passed The Avengers on the worldwide box office gross chart to become the #3 highest grossing movie ever. The only two films ahead of Jurassic World are James Cameron’s monstrous hits, Best Picture winner Titanic at #2 and sci-fi spectacle Avatar at #1.
Q: You brought new footage to Comic Con, which was quickly bootlegged. I’ve seen people claim that footage leaks out of Comic Con are designed as part of a marketing plan. As former studio exec and current producer, what are your thoughts on that subject? Hutch Parker: I’d say it really isn’t intended to be leaked. It’s […]
Ant-Man features two credits sequences, and one of them appears to be a clip from Captain America: Civil War. I’m not going to spoil what happens in the clip, or who is in the clip. I did ask Marvel head Kevin Feige if this post-credits scene was in fact a clip from the upcoming May […]
Did you like the first Captain America movie? How about the second? Did you say especially the second? Well, if that’s true – and you’re excited for Captain America: Civil War – you’re going to be really excited for both parts of Avengers: Infinity War. Badass Digest, the same site that broke the news of […]

Gunn was recently on Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend (thanks to FilmDrunk) and said the following about Guardians of the Galaxy 2: “It’s not really based on anything.
