Marvel Lines Up 20 More Movies After ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Published

on

Marvel Studios is heading into a decade of the MCU.

Don’t worry, there’s plenty more to come. Whether you want it or not. In a lengthy, celebratory profile by Vanity Fair of the studio’s building of a cinematic empire, its president Kevin Feige kept tight-lipped about those exact plans. Only to say that those plans definitely exist – and they are numerous.

According to him, Marvel is “22 movies in, and we’ve got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before – intentionally.”

22 films bring us up to Avengers 4. Some things beyond have already been hinted at, like furtherGuardians of the Galaxy sequels and spin-offs, alongside several sequels for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.

And there’s certainly room for more, with Disney CEO Bob Iger pointing out Marvel has the rights to 7,000 characters. However, the studio is also keenly aware of what it’ll take to survive in the long run: new faces, new approaches, and new moods.

“We’re looking for worlds that are completely separate – geographically or in time – from the worlds that we’ve already visited,” Iger explained. Avengers 4 is set to be the major turning point here, with Feige stating the film will “bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale”.

“There will be two distinct periods. Everything before Avengers 4and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting,” he added.

Avengers: Infinity War hits UK cinemas 27 April 2018.

Zachary Levi Is ‘Shazam!’ In Official Teaser Trailer

Published

on

Not content with seeing Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ steal all of the DC glory at Comic-Con this weekend. Zachary Levi is taking a much lighter approach to this often brooding universe with ‘Shazam!’, working like a charm in the fun-filled teaser trailer released by Warner Bros.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the initial footage focuses on foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to channel superpowers through an ancient wizard, ultimately turning into the titular character with the childish sensibilities intact. Super strength? Flying? He seems more concerned on how he’s meant to pee in his red suit. Yet he’s soon having to use his abilities for good, when faced with Mark Strong’s big bad Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

‘Shazam!’ swoops into UK cinemas in April 2019.

Fantastical Debut Trailer For ‘Aquaman’ Welcomes You To Atlantis

Published

Still reeling from the critical reception which greeted ‘Justice League’ last year. Director James Wan and leading man Jason Momoa are tasked with keeping Warner Bros’ DCEU above water this December with ‘Aquaman’ and after seeing the action-packed first footage straight from Comic-Con, they seem up for the challenge.

Billed as the origin story of the half-human half -Atlantean. We catch glimpses of Arthur Curry’s (Momoa) family unit, most notably Nicole Kidman’s Queen Atlanna and his feisty red-haired ally Mera (Amber Heard), merely teasing his potential king status as he clashes with half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), allowing Wan to dial up the underwater spectacle and throw in a goat for good measure.

We’re positively drowning in excitement already. Here’s the trailer…

Published

Well. If you thought there wasn’t enough monster mayhem in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 effort.

Michael Dougherty’s (Krampus) 2018 film seems awfully keen to amend this with the epic debut trailer for ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, pitting the iconic creature against some of his greatest adversaries. Expect stunning money shots of Mothra, Rodan and a certain three-headed titan by the name King Ghidorah, whilst the human heroics are left to the Russell family consisting of Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler.

The film roars into cinemas next May.
