Marvel Fixes ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Poster Snubbing Danai Gurira After Fan Backlash

Nothing ― not spoilers, Easter eggs or even mistakes ― gets past eagle-eyed Marvel fans. When the new trailer and poster for the highly anticipated “Avengers: Endgame” arrived on Thursday, superhero devotees pored over every last detail only to discover a glaring omission.  The top credits feature every actor on the poster, including Josh Brolin who plays big bad Thanos and Bradley Cooper who voices a souped-up raccoon, except actress Danai Gurira. Check out the new poster for Marvel Studios’ #AvengersEndgame. See it in theaters April 26. pic.twitter.com/c4yyiShAqo — Marvel Studios (@MarvelStudios) March 14, 2019 Gurira made her much-celebrated Marvel franchise debut in 2018′s “Black Panther” as Okoye, who is a key member of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje, a group of female warriors tasked with pro...

Captain Marvel Joins The Fight Against Thanos In ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer

Thanos might have a problem because Earth’s mightiest heroes are going higher, further, faster with the help of Captain Marvel.  The second trailer for Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” arrived on Thursday morning and finds the team ― sporting some new and improved matching suits ― banding together for one final mission to reverse the snap felt around the world.  The trailer flashes back to pivotal moments in each of the remaining Avengers’ lives, giving weight to the long-held fan theory that the installment will find the superheroes journeying through their past to remedy the rapture in the present.  We even get a peek of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) back on Earth, revealing Iron Man recovers from the wounds he suffered in “Infinity War” and returns from space.  “Even if there’s a small cha...

Marvel Might Be Casting An Openly Gay Superhero: ‘The World Is Ready’

With Captain Marvel blasting off into theaters Friday in the first solo female superhero film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans are eager to ring in another long-overdue milestone. Marvel’s production chief Victoria Alonso said she believes the “world is ready” for a leading gay superhero at the center of their own story amid rumors that the studio is looking to cast an openly gay actor for a starring role in an upcoming project. “Our entire success is based on people that are incredibly different. Why wouldn’t we? Why would we only want to be recognized by only one type of person?” Alonso told Variety at the Los Angeles premiere of “Captain Marvel” on Wednesday. “Our audience is global, is diverse, is inclusive. If we don’t do it that way for them, we will fail. If we don’t put ped...

Bill Maher Doubles Down On Trashing Stan Lee Fans, Adults Who Like Comics

Bill Maher is not backing down when it comes to criticizing fans of Marvel giant Stan Lee, and fans of comic books in general. On Friday’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” the host insisted that he had nothing against the late Lee, but that adult fans of comics simply need to “grow up.” “I’m not glad Stan Lee is dead, I’m sad you’re alive,” Maher said. The segment was meant to address controversy over a blog post Maher wrote back in November. For some reason, Maher had felt that Lee’s death was a good opportunity to mock his mourning fans. “The guy who created Spider-Man and the Hulk has died, and America is in mourning,” he wrote in a blog post just days after Lee died. “Deep, deep mourning for a man who inspired millions to, I don’t know, watch a movie, I guess.” His blog post generated back...

Marvel’s ‘Darth Vader’ Comic Finale Reveals The Identity Of Anakin Skywalker’s Father

“I am your father.” It’s easily the most famous line in the entire “Star Wars” saga, spoken by Darth Vader (aka Anakin Skywalker) to Luke Skywalker in 1980’s “The Empire Strikes Back.” But there’s a deeper lineage question in the “Star Wars” universe that has remained, at best, murky: Who is Darth Vader’s father? Fans learned in the prequels, namely 1999’s “The Phantom Menace,” that Anakin’s mother was a slave on Tatooine named Shmi and his father was … the Force? Midi-chlorians? It’s not clearly stated in the film, only that “there was no father.” Another virgin birth just in time for Christmas! However, as we learn in Marvel’s finale of the stand-alone “Darth Vader” comic series, this one is a bit more insidious. Pun intended.  In “Darth Vader” No. 25, Anakin unlocks a portal to th...

Marvel Gives The OK For Iron Man To Be Put On Gravestone Of Young Fan, Parents Say

Marvel fan Ollie Gardiner was diagnosed with brain and spine cancer just before his 11th birthday in May 2015. It’s easy to compare him to his favorite hero, Iron Man ― Ollie battled through 10 cycles of chemotherapy and 34 sessions of radiotherapy before he died at age 13 in November 2017. In honor of the bond Gardiner shared with his comic book hero, his parents wanted Iron Man included on Ollie’s gravestone. And they got their wish: Marvel and the Church of England gave the go-ahead, Ollie’s parents announced on Facebook this week.  The Church of England can have rather strict and decentralized rules regarding gravestones, depending on which diocese you belong to, but all parties reportedly agreed that this is the right thing to do. Marvel even offered to help coordinate with the church...

Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Is Even Better When Everyone Is Deadpool

Not only is everyone, again, Deadpool, but Saral has included a brief but hilarious nod to another beloved character: Wolverine. Marvel and 20th Century Fox, meanwhile, have also gotten in on the meta-Deadpool action. They just released “Once Upon A Deadpool” to theaters, which is essentially “Deadpool 2,” but made into a “Princess Bride” style parody. “Avengers: Endgame” comes out April 26. Check out the revamped “Avengers” trailer above. We’re calling it “Avenge-pool: Deadgame.”
