Marvel Studios has added Danai Gurira’s name to the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ poster

TwitterFacebook

A victory for Wakandans (and publicists) everywhere! 

Following backlash from fans, Marvel Studios has corrected and re-released the official poster for Avengers: Endgame, the first version of which failed to properly credit Black Panther and Infinity War actress, Danai Gurira. 

Notably, Gurira was the only Black Panther cast member to appear on the poster  — mostly thanks to Thanos — as well as the only Endgame cast member to appear on it without credit. (Yes, even Bradley Cooper and Josh Brolin got credited for their respective roles as Rocket the Raccoon and Thanos the gigantic, purple thumb.) Read more…

Warning: Spoilers for Captain Marvel and possibly Avengers: Endgame lie ahead.

While it’s clear the demise of Angry Grimace and his population control bullshit is imminent, exactly when, where, and how Captain Marvel and the rest of the Avengers will take him down remains a mystery. 

Luckily, fans have been using evidence from the original comics, Captain Marvel‘s post-credits scenes, past MCU installments, and cast and crew interviews — with just a sprinkling of common sense regarding what Marvel Studios will and won’t do — to piece together what they can before Avengers: Endgame hits theaters April 26.  Read more…

TwitterFacebook

We are currently living in the golden age of superhero movies. Every few months, a new one arrives in theaters and dominates the zeitgeist for a few weeks before hype (or dread) starts to build for the next film.

Captain Marvel, the latest movie in Marvel’s decade-long streak, is the first in the modern era to take us back into the 1990s, a time before caped crusaders took up such a sizable chunk of the movie and television market.

In anticipation of seeing Carol Danvers tear shit up at the end of the 20th century, I went back and revisited a whole bunch of superhero movies from the ‘90s to examine what the world of superheroes looked like before Marvel and DC built up their own interconnected film dynasties. Read more…

NASA gives the Avengers some advice for helping Tony Stark

TwitterFacebook

The last time we saw Tony Stark, he was adrift in space in the Avengers: Endgame trailer, and it didn’t look like survival was likely.

Luckily, the folks at NASA heard about Iron Man’s plight and had some advice to offer for the rest of the Avengers who were still alive on Earth.

Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark. As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for “@Avengers, we have a problem.” But if he can’t communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man pic.twitter.com/zavXrsPljq
