Marvel superheroes have taken over the movies. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow, The Avengers – all have come to the big screen from Marvel Comics’ sprawling universe. How did Marvel Entertainment take these characters and turn them into a high-powered, highly entertaining cinematic universe?
New York State will be the principal filming location for Netflix’s previously announced live action Marvel series – Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Since these characters are based in NYC’s Hell’s Kitchen, this is great news.
The individual series will lead into a The Defenders miniseries event. Filming will begin this summer. For more, follow the jump.
Now that we’ve seen the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, Marvel has released a series of videos introducing each of the Guardians.It’s quite the collections of misfits and ne’er-do-wells. See for yourself after the jump.
Marvel has released a number of cool photos from its upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. Four of the most entertaining (and useful) appear to be prison shots with full body shots of Drax, Groot, Rocket and Zamora with their offences superimposed. I’m not sure why there’s no corresponding photo of Peter ‘Star Lord’ Quill, unless he’s strictly a con artist with no actual kills to his name.
Check them out after the break and remember, these are the good guys!

Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn came to play at Disney’s D23 Expo. The huge crowd in the packed Disney Arena was in pure hysterics over Disney’s upcoming film slate. Horn kicked off the presentation by talking about all of their various divisions and the breath of it is just kind of staggering – Lucasfilms, Marvel, Disney Pictures and if you add in the animation divisions, amazing. What surprised me the most about the over 2 1/2 hour presentation was how much exclusive, never before seen footage was actually presented. There was some real meat on the bone here, I will post footage from the event when I get home and have a somewhat decent internet connection. First out of the gate was Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige.
