Warner Bros. has long touted their approach as hiring great directors and letting them stamp their own style on the DC movies.
Marvel has been doing that since Jon Favreau directed Iron Man – and they’ve done it again with Thor: Ragnarok. No one but Taika Waititi could have made this delightfully oddball comedy of a superhero movie.
Find out what goes into making a great villain with a telling look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first female villain—Hela, played by Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett—in “Hela Good,” a new video featurette from Marvel Studios.
With Thor: Ragnarok, the series moves away from the darkness of its immediate predecessor, Thor: The Dark World, and back into the sense of fun that propelled Thor – winning rave reviews and favorable comparisons with Christopher Reeve’s take on Superman.
A new behind-the-scenes featurette finds director Taika Waititi and his cast talking about the fun and spectacle of Thor: Ragnarok.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is not as fresh and unexpected as Vol. 1 – how could it be?
Instead, Vol. 2 follows the Star Wars plan of taking the characters who came together in Vol. 1 and separating them into unexpected combinations to dig into who they are – while engaging in explosive hijinx and, yes, saving the galaxy (and probably the universe), again.
It’s a fun ride that almost equals the original for brashness, humor and wit – but with a bit more real drama. And yes, we do learn more about the characters – Star Lord in particular.
Ant-Man and the Wasp has begun production. The Ant-Man sequel stars Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly and is directed by Peyton Reed.

Throughout its development and shoot, practically everyone on the Marvel Studios team would talk about how Spider-Man: Homecoming would a John Hughes-styled high school movie with the bonus of superheroics.
Everyone involved somehow managed to make that thought reality. Spider-Man: Homecoming is a unique mix of John Hughes and Marvel.
