Yesterday we got a look at the next installment of Marvel’s space odyssey. Not much was shown beside Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gammorah, Batista as Drax, and cameos by Rocket and Groot. However with Dr. Strange on the way in 2 weeks and the recent Logan trailer, we should have enough to chew on before the film’s May 5th 2017 release date.
Here’s our first look at Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine. While it looks somewhat inspired by the Old Man Logan storyline, it looks like most of its inspiration comes from Clint Eastwood westerns and Mad Max. It’s definitely a different take on the superhero genre and could be fitting for Wolverine’s last hurrah. We also get a glimpse of Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier, Boyd Holbrook as villain Donald Pierce, and a little girl that some believe could be X-23. Check it out and tell us what you think.
At New York Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel Entertainment announced that Ultimate Spider-Man will be ending its run in early January at the end of its fourth season. It’s replacement series New Spider-Man will debut later in 2017. Produced by Robot Chicken’s Kevin Shinick and supervising director Philip Pignotti, New Spider-Man will feature a Spider-Man who has just started out as a superhero. Along with New Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy will get a second season, which features a storyline teaming them with the avengers. Avengers Assemble will also return for an all new season, and will feature cameos by Black Panther, Ms Marvel, and Agent Carter, who will be voiced by Haley Atwell.
Very little has been revealed about the third solo Wolverine movie, save that it will be Hugh Jackman’s last time portraying the character, Patrick Stewart will be in it as Charles Xavier (in what could be his last time playing as the character), and its protagonist could be Mr. Sinister. Howsoever, it seems like we finally have a release date, along with a name change. Also, a page from the script was posted online by director James Mangold hints at what direction the film will take.

By now most of you have made your way through Luke Cage. You won’t have to wait much longer to see his partner and fellow Defender Iron Fist in action, as Marvel’s upcoming Iron Fist Netflix series has a release date, as revealed in this teaser. Of course there isn’t much in it, but we now know how much longer we’ll have to wait to see Danny Rand in the small screen.
Although Marvel’s Most Wanted and Agent Carter have been cancelled, Marvel is on a roll with several new television series. Legion is already on its way to FX, while Cloak and Dagger was announced this past April. It looks like several more members of Marvel’s Pantheon of heroes could be joining him on the small screen as well. Click after the jump to learn more. [Read the rest of this entry…]
The rumors have been officially confirmed. Gabriel Luna (True Detective, Matador) will be taking the role of Robbie Reyes, a.k.a the Ghost Rider on Agents of Shield this forthcoming season. For those who don’t read the comics, Robbie Reyes is the most recent person to take the mantle of the spirit of vengeance. After losing his parents, Reyes lives along with his younger brother Gabe. When he is gunned down by gangbangers, Reyes becomes the Ghost Rider after being bonded with the spirit of Eli Morrow, a victim of gang violence. Rather than using a motorcycle like his predecessors, Reyes instead drives a souped-up muscle car. Instead of having a flaming skull, he wears a skull helmet that’s on fire.
If you’re disappointed that Ghost Rider is a character on Agents of Shield, remember, Reyes isn’t the only Ghost Rider in the comics, and it’s still possible for Marvel to make a movie or Netflix series with the original Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze (and of course Nick Cage would be nowhere near it this time). While Ghost Rider is an odd choice for Agents of Shield, but then again so were Deathlok and the Inhumans, and they fit quite nicely. It’s great to see Marvel TV dip more into the comics to supplement Agents of Shield.
