May 2024 is on your left and coming fast, folks! And with it, soaring on top in his new position as Captain America is Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson. Last time we saw Sam, he was rightfully earning back the shield (after giving it up to a museum six months after saying he’d do his best). And now the partner has become the master as he heads into theaters with the latest installment in the Captain America series, now titled Captain America: Brave New World!

It has been an emotional journey guardians! But sadly, it’s time to face the music. This week Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits theaters, bringing one of the greatest superhero trilogies of all time to a close with one final track.

All good things must come to an end. And the journey director James Gunn and the cast of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise (as well as the entire MCU) has been an interstellar one of epic proportions. But sadly, we have one final ride with these misfits when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 debuts in the beginning of May. To celebrate, Marvel Studios has dropped a new featurette for the film. Take a look here!
Everyone! This is not a drill! Tickets have officially dropped for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3! But that’s not all. Today, to celebrate tickets going on sale, Marvel Studios has revealed several new posters for the film, and (most importantly) the full list of songs from Awesome Mix Vol. 3!
The trailer for Marvel Studios’ espionage thriller Secret Invasion is finally here! The new series has an incredible cast, which includes Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Cobie Smulders, Martin Freeman, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Charlayne Woodard, Killian Scott, Samuel Adewunmi, Dermot Mulroney, Christopher McDonald, Katie Finneran, Emilia Clarke, Olivia Colman, and Don Cheadle.
Phase 5 is finally here and so is Kang! After the mixed reception of Phase 4 from the critics and fans, does the MCU still have what it takes to excite audiences and set them on a path towards another epic franchise-spanning narrative? With Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the answer is a resounding “potentially!”
Marvel Studios has always had the big picture in mind. For the Infinity Saga, it was the Mad Titan Thanos who was bent on bringing balance to the universe by wiping out half of life in it. Now, Kevin Feige is building up the Multiverse Saga with the MCU’s latest big bad: the time-traveling multiverse villain Kang the Conquerer, played by Jonathan Majors.
The Quantum Realm has been a part of the MCU mythology since it was introduced in the first Ant-Man film. Since then, we’ve only seen glimpses of the unexplored world. But in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, we will finally see it in all its bizarre and indescribably wacky glory. And it took an entire team, plus some input from Ant-Man star Paul Rudd to figure out how it would look and the quantum mechanics of it all.
Family has always been a recurring theme in the Ant-Man film franchise. Everything Scott has done was done for his daughter. And we see how the Pym family relationship is repaired after years of keeping secrets from each other. By exploring the layers of this theme through the superhero lens, we see how committed Marvel is to tell the story of a simple everyday man and devoted father who happens to be an Avenger.
For a Marvel Comics superhero who had a small start in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s had some pretty big adventures, some of which had an impact on the larger MCU. No longer the epilogue to the Avengers epics, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) aka Ant-Man and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) aka The Wasp are the opening act to Phase 5, where they will take fans into the mysterious Quantum Realm in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.
