Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Has "Great Confidence" In DC Films


Kevin Feige

The DC Extended Universe is without a doubt going through a major uplift as of late, following the hugely successful release, critical and commercial response to 'Wonder Woman'. Taking in over $800 million in the box office across the globe, the film quickly became the DCEU's most-loved flick, largely in part to its lead in Gal Gadot and female director Patty Jenkins.

'Wonder Woman' came just at the right time for the DCEU, which was facing critical negativity following the release of 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' and 'Suicide Squad', despite both making hundreds of millions of dollars in the box office and being enjoyed by fans.

Kevin Feige: 'Thor: Ragnarok' Builds Directly Into 'Infinity War'


Kevin Feige

The impact that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has had on the world of movies is something astronomical. Ploughing on through what they call their third phase, they've got a big screen release this weekend with 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' and another a little later in the year in the form of third solo Thor movie, 'Thor: Ragnarok'.

Chris Hemsworth is the man leading the charge as the titular hero, but finds himself here held captive on a different planet entirely, without his hammer and forced into battle against former friend the Hulk. Will he be able to make it back to his home planet of Asgard and prevent the impending doom of Ragnarok? That's something we'll find out when it hits the big screen, but for now, Marvel Head Kevin Feige has been teasing a little bit of what we should expect.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

Extraordinary

This may be the third reboot of this franchise in 15 years, risking audience exhaustion, but there are plenty of reasons not to miss this one. Most notably, this is the first Spider-Man movie that's part of Marvel's Avengers franchise, which places it in a larger story with lots of cameo possibilities. But more importantly, young British actor Tom Holland seems to have been born to play the role, infusing the entire film with cheeky teenage energy. And it's also one of the funniest, most complex blockbusters of the year.

The film opens with overexcited home videos Peter Parker (Holland) made of his adventure with the Avengers in Civil War. Now he's plunged back to the dull reality of being a high school student living with his sparky Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). He has a crush on classmate Liz (Laura Harrier), but faces rivalry from the school's alpha male Flash (Tony Revolori). And after a night out playing superhero in his Spider-Man costume, his nerdy best pal Ned (Jacob Batalon) is a bit too thrilled to discover his secret alter-ego. Meanwhile, Peter is annoyed that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and his assistant Happy (Jon Favreau) are ignoring his calls, especially after he warns them that he has seen winged bad guy Toomes (Michael Keaton) dealing illegal alien weapons around New York while plotting something nefarious.

Director Jon Watts (Cop Car) cleverly maintains a nimble teen perspective throughout the film, which makes it feel more like a comedy than an action movie. And instead of snarky one-liners, the laughs come from character-based humour, most notably Holland's brilliant reactions to everything that comes along. One memorable sequence, which kicks off the final onslaught of action, is both hilarious and terrifying at the same time, perfectly balanced thanks to a knowing revelation, Watts' subtle direction and Holland's hugely engaging performance. And each breathtaking action set-piece pushes the character forward in positive ways.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Will Be Final Chapter For Some Characters


Kevin Feige

There's no denying the incredible success the Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen. Whether you're a huge fan of Captain America, an Iron Man loyalist or something in-between, you'd be hard-pressed to say you've never sat down and enjoyed at least one of the instalments in the current version of the MCU.

Introducing an Avengers team like no other, the MCU has served to deliver action-packed films in the past few years for both children and adults; movies injected with humour that still allow a great storyline to flow through them. Now, as we move ahead, talk turns to next year's release, 'Avengers: Infinity War'.

Kevin Feige Thinks Marvel TV And Movies Will Eventually Crossover


Kevin Feige

For years, fans of Marvel comic books have been able to get their live action adaptation kicks both from the big and small screens, with the release of a variety of films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and beyond, as well as television series such as 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and Netflix originals like 'Jessica Jones'. It's fair to say that the entertainment industry is hugely saturated with Marvel content.

What hasn't happened just yet however is a crossover between the film and TV universes, even though events that have taken place in the various 'Avengers' movies have been alluded to in some of the TV shows available.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

Extraordinary

It was never going to be easy to match the impact of 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, which jolted the Marvel franchise to life with its fresh comedy and freewheeling adventure. This sequel is still a lot of fun, but it's also far more controlled, a conventional, plot-based step of the Marvel universe. And all of the characters are angry about everything and everyone. Thankfully, there's also an emotionality that sneaks into the final act.

Now working as a team, the bickering Guardians just manage to complete their latest mission when Rocket (Bradley Cooper) makes an enemy of a tenacious high priestess (Elizabeth Debicki). Her fleet chases them into an encounter with Ego (Kurt Russell), a god-like being who claims to be the father of Guardian leader Peter (Chris Pratt). So Peter takes Gamora and Drax (Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista) to check out Ego's planet, while Rocket and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) fend off both the priestess and Peter's old mentor Yondu (Michael Rooker), who arrives with a large posse. And then there's Gamora's perpetually furious sister Nebula (Karen Gillan), who's on the rampage, determined to get revenge against everyone who has slighted her.

There's an underlying rage that drives everyone's actions, and the constant screaming matches become exhausting as the film progresses. The worst offender is Rocket, who expresses his perpetual aggravation in a stream of tetchy tirades. Thankfully, the dialogue is sharply written, with wicked insults to keep the audience smirking along. And there's also a nice sense that all of this fury is masking a deeper affection these misfits have for each other, which boils over in some remarkably strong dramatic scenes. Pratt and Russell are both terrific, seizing every chance to play with the comedic and dramatic notes. There are nice moments for Rooker, Saldana and Gillan, plus some witty cameos. And while Baby Groot is almost painfully adorable, it's Bautista's hilariously open-hearted Drax who steals the show.

Scarlett Johansson Chris Evans Kevin Feige

Scarlett Johansson has added her name to the list of those wanting a Black Widow spin-off movie. Considering the actress has starred as Natasha Romanoff and her alter ego in Iron Man 2, The Avengers and most recently Captain America: The Winter Soldier - we'd consider that a pretty strong recommendation.
