About five years ago, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige found himself on a retreat in Palm Springs plotting the future for the wild, experimental "cinematic universe" that he helped start in 2008. He wanted to do something that they hadn't done. He wanted an ending. And after a quick pitch to Robert Downey Jr., he, directors Anthony and Joe Russo and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, started plotting a way to bring this saga to a close, brainstorming whenever they had a moment — even in between takes of "Captain America: Civil War." Anyone who saw "Avengers: Infinity War" knows they weren't kidding around either. Thanos literally dissolved half of humanity, including Spider-Man and Black Panther in an event known as "the snap" that's inspired tears, memes and more fan theories than the internet can hold. Talk about a cliffhanger. Endings are a rarity in the franchise movie-making business, especially when one's popularity has only multiplied as the movies … [Read more...] about Marvel Closes a Decade-Long Story With ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Marvel fans are being warned to stay away from social media after leaked footage from the upcoming “Avengers: Endgame” was found circulating online. Walt Disney has kept the film shrouded in so much secrecy that even journalists and critics weren’t permitted to see the film ahead of its premiere. Those who have viewed the clip have called it “spoiler heavy.” Screen shots, gifs, short clips, and detailed posts about what occurred during the clip are already surfacing on Twitter and Reddit. Disney did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment. It is likely that the person behind the leak had clearance to view the footage. Although a leak like this likely won’t deter fans from going to see the film on its opening weekend, it is a deflating moment for Disney after it has worked so hard to prevent any information about the film getting out early. “Endgame,” the 22nd film in the Marvel … [Read more...] about Massive ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Footage Leak Hits Twitter, Reddit

After more than a decade of buildup—and one brutal, yearlong cliffhanger—Avengers: Endgame will be released at last on April 26. Marvel’s latest apocalyptic opus promises a resolution not only to last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, but to an entire era of blockbuster filmmaking.

Well, it has happened yet again. We are talking about yet another speculation that’s doing the round about the upcoming film, ‘Avengers: Endgame’. The latest theory doing the rounds is that Thanos isn’t the biggest threat the Avengers would have to face in the fourth and last instalment of the series. A greater danger would loom large over them, even after they defeat Thanos. A fan of the series came up with the theory on an interactive web platform. He said that as the film is over three hours long, it has ample time to introduce a fresh character, build his/her back story and convincingly weave them into the story. Well, how did the fan hit upon this theory? From a Marvel toy series, which was launched last year. Apparently, the one of the toys has a packaging that reads, “Rocket teams up with a new crew to guard the galaxy from an even greater threat”. So, will ‘Avengers: Endgame’ introduce a bigger threat than Thanos? … [Read more...] about ‘Avengers: Endgame’ to introduce a bigger threat than Thanos?
