As we noted earlier this month, Captain Marvel features a Stan Lee cameo that is more reality-breaking than the average Stan Lee cameo (even the Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 one that implied every character he played was actually the same person or the Teen Titans Go!

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Clocks in at 182 Minutes, Marvel’s Longest Runtime

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Clocks in at 182 Minutes, Marvel’s Longest Runtime
At 149 minutes, last year’s “Avengers: Infinity War” was the longest movie in Marvel history. That record will soon be broken by its follow-up, as “Avengers: Endgame” clocks in at a character-building three hours and two minutes. The news was first (unintentionally) broken by AMC and then confirmed by Fandango, which seems unfazed by the prospect of a lengthy running time scaring away potential ticket-buyers.

Speaking to Collider earlier this month, Kevin Fiege addressed the runtime in less specific terms: “We’re gonna release the movie at the exact right running time,” he said. “I’m telling you this, it’s gonna be perfect. It’s gonna be the exact running time that the movie needs to be.”

He continued, “In all seriousness, we don’t look at run times in terms of mandates, or anything like that. Every movie should feel like it’s an hour and 45 minutes. Now,

Shazam! Sneak Peeks Outgross Aquaman Early Screenings

Shazam! made more money than fellow DC movie Aquaman during its preview screenings. This bodes well for the project when it finally hits theaters next week. The superhero adventure is the last from the 2014 Dceu project announcement and many feared that it wouldn't see the light of day, especially since The Flash still hasn't even started production. However, everything was good to go as soon as David F. Sandberg stepped on board in 2017.

Aquaman was a juggernaut at the box office and is currently the highest grossing DC movie in their history and the 8th highest in terms of superhero movies. With that being said, Shazam! has a lot to live up to and more than likely won't be joining the $1 billion club during its theatrical run. However, the movie did just earn $3.3 million, thanks to Fandango's preview screenings. That easily tops Aquaman's Atom/Amazon preview take of $2.9 million.

Tessa Thompson Wants An All-Female Superhero Movie With Captain Marvel

Earlier this month, Captain Marvel star Brie Larson stated that she was “super into” the idea of an all-female Avengers movie. Before that, the suggestion had come up multiple times in discussions with the female stars of the McU, with Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson and Tessa Thompson all expressing an interest in recent years. And as it turns out, Thompson is still on board for the idea.

Speaking to CinemaBlend, the Thor: Ragnarok star remarked that the McU currently has a lot of female stars that she’d like to work with, the latest addition being Captain Marvel lead Brie Larson:

“Brie is a friend, and I just like hanging out with her; and I’m so excited. Obviously it’s been a long time coming for Marvel to have a movie led by one of their female characters that exists in the canon… Last year

Kevin Smith Returns the Captain Marvel Love in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot
Jay & Silent Bob Reboot will feature a shout out to Captain Marvel. Kevin Smith has released a new image from the set featuring Jason Lee's Brodie Bruce with a Carol Danvers comic in his hand. Bruce is wearing pretty much the exact same outfit that he wore in Mallrats, which is the Smith movie that Captain Marvel featured in its Stan Lee cameo. However, there is a big change to his t-shirt, which Smith has already talked about. The new shirt features Stan Lee's face on it in tribute to Bruce's hero.

In the latest Jay & Silent Bob Reboot photo, Jason Lee's Brodie Bruce is looking at the Captain Marvel comic in his hand and many of us are wondering what 2019 Bruce thinks about the first female-led Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Whatever the case may be, it's a direct reaction to the Mallrats shout out in the Carol Danvers standalone movie.

  • Popsugar
Fresh from smashing records with her Marvel debut in Captain Marvel, Brie Larson is hitting another benchmark in her career - the actress is making her directorial debut with the Netflix film Unicorn Store, and she's bringing her Captain Marvel costar Samuel L. Jackson with her.

Unicorn Store follows a young woman named Kit after she's been kicked out of art school and forced to move back in with her parents. Despite her creative, escapist ways, Kit resolves to "grow up" and takes a temp job for a PR firm. Everything changes when she meets the mysterious salesman of "The Store" (Jackson), who promises her childhood's greatest desire and leads her down a path to discovering what true magic really means.

From the looks of the trailer - and the flashy suits we really need a closer look at - it's safe to say Unicorn Store is going to be one vibrant adventure.

Us and Captain Marvel Share a Very Interesting Easter Egg

Us and Captain Marvel Share a Very Interesting Easter Egg
Jordan Peele's Us and Captain Marvel share an Easter Egg that has helped bring a classic movie back into the spotlight. The Carol Danvers standalone story is getting ready to pass the $1 billion-mark at the box office and was knocked from its number one spot over the weekend by Peele's latest horror movie, which has already broken records. Us holds the third highest grossing horror movie debut of all time, thanks to its epic box office weekend. There are some slight Spoilers for both movies below, so read ahead with caution.

When Captain Marvel first lands on Earth, she crashes into a Blockbuster video in the year 1995 where she blows away a cardboard cutout of Arnold Schwarzenegger. As Carol Danvers observes her new location, she picks up a VHS copy of classic 1980s movie The Right Stuff. This movie is also shown in Jordan Peele's Us, but for a much different reason.

Kevin Feige Teases That Mar-Vell’s Legacy Will Be Explored Further in The McU

Captain Marvel introduced a few new characters to the McU, and one of the biggest reveals, which came in a fun little twist, was the reveal of Mar-Vell, who was played by Annette Bening. She was Carol Danvers’ mentor in the film.

We got a little backstory for her in the film on how she rebelled against the Kree after coming to Earth and took on the mission of ending the war between the Kree and the Skrull for good.

Mar-Vell was one of the more interesting characters, and there’s a whole cool background story there and a legacy to explore. Well, it seems like Marvel might expire that legacy in the McU. Kevin Feige teased in an interview with ScreenRant:

"Will we see it lived through more? Yeah. I mean, I think one of the things that's fun to us about the timeline of this film and the

‘Captain Marvel’: Kevin Feige Says It “Never Even Occurred” To The Filmmakers To Include A Love Story

When you interview Kevin Feige, it’s obvious what you’re getting yourself into. The Marvel Studios boss is the master of the non-answer. You will likely ask this incredibly detailed answer, with a clear answer in mind, and Feige will do verbal gymnastics, dodging your question, providing an answer that sounds informative, but eventually is revealed to be nothing more than what you already knew or could surmise. S. it’s always fun when you read an interview where the man behind-the-scenes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe actually gives some honest answers, as he did recently, when talking about “Captain Marvel.”

Speaking to ScreenRant, Feige was asked a variety of questions about the McU and “Captain Marvel,” in particular.

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Powers To $71M+ Opening, A Major Win For Original Fare At The Box Office – Monday AM Update

  • Deadline
Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Powers To $71M+ Opening, A Major Win For Original Fare At The Box Office – Monday AM Update
The opening for Jordan Peele’s Us is even bigger than the $70.2M that Universal reported with early morning reports showing $71.1M after a $16.8M Sunday.

Sunday is 7% better than the $15.7M originally expected yesterday. Though exit polls for Us were behind Get Out‘s, that never stopped the box office momentum for Peele’s latest. Essentially, the pic’s ending has folks divided, and that’s why those exits are lower. Nonetheless, it has moviegoers talking, and that word of mouth is driving tickets sales coupled with Peele’s brand wattage. The biggest inherent selling tool all along for Us was Get Out, and audiences wanted more Peele. We always write about how the star system no longer works at the box office, but directors like Peele, Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino and to varying degrees Steven Spielberg; their names alone sell their movies,

‘Captain Marvel’ and ‘Us’ Have Pushed ‘The Right Stuff’ Back Into the Spotlight
Over the past three weeks, moviegoers have flocked to see “Captain Marvel,” and this past weekend, many of them came back to theaters to see Jordan Peele’s acclaimed horror film “Us.” By sheer coincidence, both of these very different films make reference to the same classic 1980s film: “The Right Stuff.”

In “Captain Marvel,” the nod to the Best Picture Oscar nominee comes when Vers — a.k.a. Carol Danvers — crash lands on Earth and finds herself in a Blockbuster Video. As she looks around, she picks up a VHS copy of “The Right Stuff,” which was one of the inspirations behind the film.

Kevin Feige Explains Why Captain Marvel Didn’t Have A Love Interest

While Captain Marvel wasn’t the first McU film not to have a romantic subplot for its lead, it was the first solo debut of the superhero saga not to feature an obvious love interest. And according Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, this trope was left out because, quite simply, it didn’t have a place in the story

In an interview with ScreenRant, the producer explained that Captain Marvel was a journey of self-discovery that was characterized more by friendship than romance:

“Well that was something as we were developing the script and queuing off of the comics as always, it never even occurred to have a love interest. That’s not what the movie was about. It was about Carol finding herself and growing and making mistakes and being bolstered up by her female mentors and female friends.”

Korea Box Office: ‘Money’ Defeats ‘Captain Marvel’
Korean crime drama “Money” debuted on top of the South Korean box office, preventing “Captain Marvel” from topping the chart for three consecutive weekends. It is the story of a young stockbroker who dreams of riches but becomes caught in a stock market scam.

Opening on Wednesday, the Showbox release earned $12.0 million from 1.54 million admissions in five days. That included $587,000 from preview screenings. Its Friday-Sunday take ($8.85 million) accounted for 59% of the country’s total weekend box office.

Disney’s “Marvel” slipped to second, incurring a week-on-week drop of 62%. It earned $3.09 million for a total of $41.2 million after three weekends on release.

Two other Wednesday openers, “Jo Pil-ho: The Dawning Rage” and “Idol” took landed in third and fourth, respectively.

Marvel Announces Absolute Carnage Coming This Summer

Carnage is returning to Marvel Comics, and it looks like no one is safe.

“Cletus Kasady is back, and he is deadlier than he’s ever been,” writer Donny Cates revealed in a video announcement that kicked off Marvel Comic’s C2E2 panel.

“Absolute Carnage encompasses every single character who has ever worn a symbiote and every symbiote that has ever been, going all the way back to when Peter found the black suit,” he continued, “Going from there to Maximum Carnage to Venomized to everything…”

Even the series’ preview page on Marvel.com is teasing that “This summer, no Super Hero is safe…everyone is a target!” and it’s kind of true. After all, most of Marvel’s hit characters have bonded with a Klyntar symbiote at some point or another, including Deadpool, Captain Marvel, and even the Guardians of the Galaxy.

‘Us’ Cements the Box Office Power of Jordan Peele
Given the breakout success of “Get Out,” it’s no surprise audiences were salivating to see the next nightmare from the mind of writer-director Jordan Peele.

Get Out,” which landed a screenwriting Oscar for Peele, became one of the most profitable movies of 2017 (grossing $255 million globally on a $4.5 million budget) after the horror film captured the zeitgeist with its exploration of race relations in America. Even with the sky-high expectations set for “Us,” the filmmaker’s second directorial effort, few predicted just how many moviegoers had boarded the Jordan Peele train.

“Us,” a psychological thriller about a family confronted by their doppelgangers, put industry projections to shame when it debuted to a massive $70 million in North America, nearly doubling forecasts heading into the weekend. The studio and tracking services predicted it would net a three-day total in the $38 million to $45 million range. “Us” now boasts the second-best debut of the

First Avengers: Endgame Standee Features Captain Marvel And The Hulkbuster

With just one month and one day to go until the release of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios is starting to take their marketing of the Avengers: Infinity War sequel to the next level.

Just take this newly surfaced image of a giant promotional standee for instance, which comes to us courtesy of Reddit user Slodis. Essentially, the design is a variation of the layout we saw on a recently released international poster, only with a big Avengers-a sitting right in the middle. As with much of the marketing material that’s come before it, this standee is going with a predominantly purple and gold color scheme in reference to a certain Mad Titan, whose head is practically camouflaged on the left side of the image.

Alongside Thanos, the standee displays the main line-up of heroes for next month’s release, from Phase 1 stars like Iron Man and Thor, to relatively
