Steven Spielberg thinks that superhero movies will go the way of the Western. As in, moviegoers will get tired of them and stop watching them and the movie studios will stop making them. That sounds hard to believe since slapping Marvel on anything basically guarantees a gazillion dollars but how long can this current…
We’ve loved both seasons of Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil, but even the most diehard fans of the show might be sick of hearing people espouse about “this city!” every other sentence. To remind you just how prevalent this little phrase is, here’s the Daredevil supercut we’ve been waiting to see for ages.
Phase three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe begins this week when Captain America: Civil War is finally released. And though there hasn’t been a Marvel movie released since last year, much has changed in the universe in that time.
Ewan McGregor throws water on Obi-Wan movie rumors. Jon Favreau may be returning to the director’s seat at Marvel. 10 Cloverfield Lane’s director heads to Black Mirror. Plus more Power Rangers filming, even more footage from Civil War, and a new clip from Agents of SHIELD. Spoilers get!
We couldn’t be more excited for Captain America: Civil War to finally come to theaters next week, but we also couldn’t be less enthused with its source material. The comic event was epic, but it was also a mess, where Iron Man inexplicably became a supervillianous asshole. Here’s a guide to Marvel’s original Civil War
Even with Civil War’s marketing bombardment, we’ve not really seen all that much of T’Challa in action—a kick here, a scratch of the ol’ vibranium shield there. But this new clip gives us a short, but oh so sweet scene of the Black Panther kicking ass that’s too good not to see.
Not a total surprise after the love the character got in Daredevil, but now it’s official: there will be a Punisher TV show on Netflix.
Cap’s shield has deflected all kinds of shit over the last few years, but outside the Marvel universe, vibranium is in short supply. So what can Captain America’s shield do when it’s made of titanium?
I got a bunch of big questions this week: What’s next for Star Wars after Episode IX? Why has The Flash TV series gotten so dumb? And what happens when someone points out the Avengers are also probably murderers? Big answers to follow!
Like the country he represents, Captain America has changed a lot over the years. Though the 75-year-old super soldier was born as a reaction to fascism, Cap has gone through all manner of cancellations and team changes, appeared in various shows and PSAs, and come out the other end of Marvel’s cinematic universe as a
We got a glimpse of the new generation of X-Men’s comic-inspired costumes thanks to Empire Magazine recently, but a new image of the mutant team reveals their uniforms from top to bottom, and they look wonderfully colorful and silly in just the right way.
Ah, summer. The perfect time to think about going outside, getting some sun, enjoying all nature has to offer—and then staying inside to read comics anyway. Happily, this summer’s titles will definitely keep you both occupied and entertained! Here’s io9's guide to all the fantastic new series coming out over the new…
Since Marvel announced that Tilda Swinton would play the role of Dr. Strange’s spiritual master the Ancient One, there’s been a loud outcry about yet another instance of casting a white actress as an Asian character. Marvel has been trying to diffuse the controversy through various means, including today’s…
Even the nicest, most decent superheroes are cold blooded murderers. The nice ones just do it less than the psychopaths and make their kills with a much more cheery soundtrack. Take Captain America. Dude is all-American good guy as it gets and he’s racked up quite a kill count in his Marvel movies. How many? 14,089!…
Nathan Fillion is circling the Marvel universe once more. in the most delightful way. New set pictures from GotG2 have hit the web, revealing an all-new role the Castle and Firefly star plays in the movie—and it has a major reference to the comics. Spoilers ahead!
The latest look at X-Men: Apocalypse is here, and as per usual, things aren’t looking great for Charles Xavier and his merry band of mutants. That doesn’t mean they’re not going to go down without a fight, though—and they’re taking the fight to Apocalypse with the help of a few familiar faces.
We at io9 tend to cover a lot of comic book news, but there are a lot of smaller titles that, while not making headline news, are absolutely worth checking out (and then telling all your friends about how awesome they are). Here are just some of the criminally underappreciated series out right now that you should be…
