    Is the name "X-Men" outdated? Marvel Studios' Executive Vice President of Production Victoria Alonso thinks so. During an interview about Captain Marvel's home video release, Alonso is asked about the future of the X-Men at Disney and goes on an interesting tangent. "I don't know where the future is going," Alonso told Nuke the Fridge. "Its funny that people call it the X-Men... there's a lot of female superheroes in that X-Men group; I think it's outdated."

Proceeds from the shirt’s sale go toward The Solutions Project, an organization co-founded by Ruffalo with the aim of promoting...

    As Avengers: Endgame continues to shatter records and earn rave reviews, some moviegoers are divided over how Marvel Studios finally delivered on president Kevin Feige’s promise to LGBT activists to insert homosexual “representation” in the beloved film franchise (minor first-act spoiler to follow). After the villainous Thanos (Josh Brolin) wiped out half the world’s population at the end of last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, an early scene in Endgame features a support group for survivors coping with the loss of their loved ones. An unnamed member (played by co-director Joe Russo) discusses how he’s attempted to move on by starting...

    As Avengers: Endgame continues its world-conquering run at the box office, one particular scene is attracting some attention for introducing the franchise’s first openly gay character. And while some fans are pleased to see the MCU finally take this first step in LGBTQ representation, others were left feeling pretty underwhelmed. The character in question features in a scene where Steve Rogers leads a post-snap support group. One of the attendees, played by Endgame co-director Joe Russo, mentions that he went on his first date since the events of Avengers: Infinity War, using the “he” pronoun to refer to his partner....

    “Avengers: Endgame” has done the impossible. In just five days, the Marvel film hauled in more than $1.2 billion at the global box office. This shatters the previous record for the highest weekend total of $641 million set by “Avengers: Infinity War” last year. This has never happened before and marks the fastest a film has ever reached the billion dollar mark. “Infinity War” was the previous record holder with 11 days. In the U.S., the Marvel superhero flick took in a record-breaking estimated $350 million during its opening weekend, shattering expectations. The previous domestic record was held by “Avengers:...

    To say Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Endgame is making history in its box office debut is an understatement. The superhero tentpole grossed $156.7 million on Friday in North America, putting it on course for a stunning domestic debut of $340 million-plus and a global launch of $1 billion. All are records, despite Endgame's lengthy running time of three hours. Furthermore, overall weekend revenue in the U.S. will clock in at $380 million or more, an unprecedented stat. Until now, the most ever collected in one weekend was $314 million.

    Phase II of the Marvel comic book cinematic universe is going to involve a few less of our classic superheros in favor of a bold new array of diverse and inclusive characters. Yes, Marvel’s going a lot more ethnic, and a lot more gay because what’s cooler than finding out that your new favorite Avenger enjoys his skintight latex suit for far more than just crime-fighting purposes?

    ‘I lost the kid,” Tony Stark says bluntly at the start of Avengers: Endgame. We all lost the kid, and miss him: Spider-Man. We miss Black Panther and Falcon and Nick Fury and Doctor Strange, too. We’re missing a lot in this movie. Half of all living creatures were extinguished by the mega-Malthusian Thanos at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. Picture a global 9/11, 9/11 times a million.

    "Avengers: Endgame" is finally here. The epic grand finale of the Marvel Cinematic Universe chapter was officially unveiled at the world premiere Monday night at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

"I cried like six times," Chris Evans (Captain America) told the audience. “I cried, I think more than 6 times,” added Chris Hemsworth (Thor). While the full movie reviews will come in Tuesday, the first social media...

    “Captain Marvel” has made more than $1 billion worldwide, and one man can lay claim to contributing more to that box-office haul than anyone else in the world: Steve Ruppel of Wisconsin. After setting a Guinness World Record by seeing Brie Larson’s superhero drama 104 times at the Marcus Cedar Creek Cinema in Rothschild 104 times, the apparent super fan went back 12 more times for good measure. “I thought it was the most insane thing ever, I thought it was impossible,” Ruppel told local news station WSAW of his feat. “I wasn’t even sure why it was even a...

    Marvel's Avengers: Endgame will get the summer movie season off to an early start at the end of April, with the superhero blockbuster already tracking for a massive debut. New box office tracking numbers put Avengers: Endgame's three-day box office debut between $200 million and $250 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. While even the high end of those projections put it just short of Avengers: Infinity War's opening weekend record of $257.6 million last April, it's still possible that the film could break the record.

    “Captain Marvel” became the 2019 box office’s first $1 billion hit on Wednesday, along with being the seventh film from Marvel Studios and the 38th film of all time to hit that 10-digit benchmark. Unlike past Marvel Studios hits that have grossed $1 billion, “Captain Marvel” was the first to do so with a lead character who wasn’t introduced in a previous Marvel film. Even “Black Panther,” the highest-grossing film of the 2018 domestic box office, had its Wakandan superhero introduced in “Captain America: Civil War.” “Captain Marvel” did have the presence of Samuel L. Jackson’s fan favorite Nick Fury,...

    Avengers: Endgame tickets went on sale today with Atom Tickets reporting that in the first hour, the Marvel movie has set a record for the mobile ticket retailer. To date, Avengers: Endgame has sold three times more tickets on Atom in the first hour of pre-sales than Avengers: Infinity War did last year. The first hour of Avengers: Endgame presales also outstrips Atom’s first hour sales for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Fandango is also reporting strong sales for the Russo Brothers-directed sequel. In addition, the frenzy for Avengers: Endgame tickets is so huge, it’s crashing sites. Ticket buyers are...

    Chris Evans, Avenger and overall number one Chris, may have to snap his finger and turn his Tom Brady fandom into dust if the superstar quarterback continues to support President Donald Trump. The revelation came in a wide-ranging interview with The Hollywood Reporter, pegged to the upcoming Avengers: Endgame which is projected to make roughly a bajillion dollars at the box office this summer. When asked if he would play Brady in a biopic, Evans, who has been vocal about his love of the Patriots, said: "I don't know," he says. "I really hope he's not a Trump supporter. I'm...

    A petition launched today by LifeSiteNews is demanding that Marvel Studios not indoctrinate children with homosexual ideology by rumoredly introducing a homosexual main character in an upcoming superhero film. On March 7, Marvel chief of production Victoria Alonso told Variety magazine, “The world is ready” for an “LGBT superhero.” She averred at the premiere of “Captain Marvel” that Marvel Studios is committed to “diversity.” Studio president Kevin Feige said in an interview with ET that the idea was "percolating" at the Studios. Earlier, “That Hashtag Show” website reported rumors that an “openly gay” man will be cast as the lead...

    Redemption and second chances have long been superhero movie staples, and today it looks like life has imitated art. I’ve learned that Disney has reinstated James Gunn as the writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and I’ve confirmed it with Marvel and Gunn’s camp. The decision to rehire Gunn –he was fired last July by Disney after alt-right journalists made public a fusillade of decade old social media missives that made light of pedophilia and rape — was one that was mulled and actually made months ago, following conversations with Disney studio leadership and the team at Marvel Studios....
