Julie Hinds Detroit Free Press Published 3:30 PM EDT Apr 29, 2019 There are enough celebrities from past Marvel movies doing cameos in "Avengers: Endgame" to fill a dozen red carpets. But the coolest cameo of all might belong to — spoiler alert that doesn't involve the storyline! — comic book great Jim Starlin, who hails from Detroit and is credited with creating the "Endgame" villain, eco-psycho baddie Thanos. Brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, who directed "Endgame," included this onscreen moment as a way to honor Starlin's contribution to the Marvel universe, according to Entertainment Weekly. Starlin pops up early in the three-hour epic. In a scene where a support group talks about life after the devastation wrought by Thanos in "Infinity War," a grieving man (played by Joe Russo) talks about going on a first date with a guy who started crying during the salad course. Another man asks him, "And what about you?" … [Read more...] about Detroiter Jim Starlin created Thanos, has cameo in ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Fresh off turning a bunch of heroes into literal dust in 2018's Infinity War, the MCU's Malthusian fan boy Thanos will return to battle the remaining Avengers in April's Endgame. He's already managed to dispatch a number of the franchise's most beloved characters including Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Star-Lord, Shuri and more. And while it would be rational to believe that humanity's salvation may be delivered by a marquee Avenger like Captain America, Iron Man or Thor, there's one pint-size, second-tier hero getting big-time attention online: Ant-Man. Where is Thanos—a seemingly unbeatable foe who can disintegrate half of all life in the universe—most vulnerable? His big, purple butthole, of course!A fan theory that originated on Reddit posits that Ant-Man, with his ability to shrink down to be teeny-tiny, could easily slip into Thanos' rectum and defeat the Mad Titan from the inside. That Thanos could meet his (rear) end thanks to some sneaky butt maneuvering has taken … [Read more...] about A Bunch of Memes Featuring Ant-Man Crawling Up Thanos’ Butt in ‘Avengers: Endgame’
Marvel has some very strange villains on its roster. We've already met a few of them – big old purple Thanos, and the giant, flaming-headed Dormammu. Others are still waiting in the wings: Morgan le Fay, the sorceress of Arthurian legend, the purple shorts-wearing dragon Fin Fang Foom, and the time-travelling despot Kang the Conqueror (who also happens to be another time-travelling despot, Immortus, in his downtime).Then there's Annihilus, a giant insect from the antimatter Negative Zone. Using his 'Cosmic Control Rod', he rules over a horde of ravenous monster bugs who are eternally gagging to spill into our universe and devour it. There has been a slow but steady flow of rumours that he would appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the years – including the (incorrect) speculation that 'Avengers 4' would be subtitled 'Annihilation' after the comics storyline that saw Annihilus come close to conquering the Marvel Universe.Now a recent promo website created by Marvel … [Read more...] about Is Marvel Villain Annihilus in Avengers Endgame?
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. While the Marvel Cinematic Universe will surely spiral on until our own, much duller universe collapses (or audiences get tired of comic books), there’s little question Endgame will be a cataclysmic event in its history and future both. If you haven’t caught up, no problem: We’ll just pause long enough for you to go cram 22 movies... All set?

It's been seven months since "Avengers: Infinity War" came out and broke the hearts of millions. While it left off with - spoilers! - several Avengers dead, some Avengers survived...and one even thought to be missing was found still alive.The trailer starts off by showing a fading Tony Stark as he drifts through space. He gives an update in his fragile state, explaining the dire situation, "If you find this recording, don't feel bad about this. Part of the journey is the end. Just for the record, being adrift in space with zero promise of rescue is more fun than it sounds. Food and water ran out four days ago. Oxygen will run out tomorrow morning." He adds, "When I drift off, I will dream about you. It's always you." Steve Rogers, Black Widow, Bruce Banner, Thor, among others, are shown rather defeated and heartbroken by the destruction. Thanos has successfully killed 50 percent of all living creatures. "We lost, all of us," Thor says. "We lost friends, we lost family, we … [Read more...] about ‘Avengers: Endgame’ official trailer is here…and one Avenger thought missing is alive
