James Gunn Explains Thanos’ Limited Role in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Thanos is simply larger than life.Director James Gunn had a dilemma on bringing Thanos for an appearance in “Guardians of the Galaxy.” With Ronan the Accuser being the Guardians’ primary adversary, Thanos shouldn’t overshadow the villainous role in the film.“You’re setting up this gigantic character that, in one way, isn’t really a part of your movie,” he explained to Vulture. “His presence doesn’t really serve being in Guardians, and having Thanos be in that scene was more helpful to the Marvel universe than it was to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Evangeline Lilly Provides New ANT-MAN Details; Says It’s “Very Much a Heist Film” Ant-Man really does feel like the red-headed stepchild of the Marvel franchise right now.  I know it hasn't been forgotten and we'll hear more about it in the not-too-distant future, but right now it has the misfortune of coming off the heels of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it's not considered big enough to kick off Phase Three (which will begin with Captain America: Civil War).  That's not to mention the production drama that went down before filming. But that doesn't mean the movie won't be good, and I'm excited to see a film that looks different from anything we've seen before in the Mar

King Kong Runs Away From Doctor Strange And Trolls The planned reboot of the King Kong franchise, Skull Island, has gotten a minor title change and new release date. Originally scheduled for November 4th, 2016, Universal’s now titled Kong: Skull Island will hit theaters on March 10, 2017. The film stars Tom Hiddleston and will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and written by John Gatins and Max Borenstein. It is planned to be an origin story of sorts, exploring the island where Kong is found. Had the film stayed at its original release date it would have opened up opposite of Marvel’s Doctor Strange and Fox’s Trolls.

'Doctor Strange' Rumor: Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy and Ken Watanabe Eyed for Supporting Role It may still be a few years before we see Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme on the big screen, but following the studio’s official confirmation of Benedict Cumberbatch’s casting in ‘Doctor Strange,’ we’re going to start hearing more updates and rumors about the film.

James Gunn Says You Shouldn't Expect the Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers to Crossover Everyone has assumed that, at some point towards the end of this current Marvel Cinematic Universe, the paths of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers would cross. Yes, one superhero team is busy protecting Earth, and the other occupied in outer space, it makes too much sense to not have them meet up in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ right? Never mind the “it makes sense” part, we just really want this to happen. Well, we might never happen according to ‘Guardians’ director James Gunn who warns fans about making such assumptions.
