It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.
What's with the name?

I would never presume to impugn the honor of the Generalissimo himself, but to be fair, the guy has a pretty well documented, and lauded, in fact, talent for bombast. And that’s part of the reason why we love him. I guess what I’m saying is: hey, I’d really like to believe that Marvel is prioritizing a movie with a person of color in the lead role, but I’d also like to not be disappointed.READ MORE

In an interview with MTV, Marvel President Kevin Feige confirmed that Ant-Man will be the first movie in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Three (which we kind of already knew), talked about how Iron Man 3 will connect with The Avengers sequel (potentially interesting…), and confirmed that Marvel’s planning a Doctor Strange movie for after Ant-Man.
One of those bits of news is far and away more exciting than the other two, and I don’t think I need to tell you which one.READ MORE

George R. R. Martin, writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the series HBO’s Game of Thrones is based on, is a longtime comic book fan (he even wrote into a Marvel letter column in 1964). With his success, you’d think a pairing between himself and one of the big comic companies would be a no-brainer. Well, Martin is totally up for writing a specific Marvel comic, he just has a few particular demands. For instance, he would like his story to be UN-RETCONNABLE, (yes, I just made up that word, go with it), meaning Marvel wouldn’t be allowed to ever alter or erase what he wrote fromt their universe. Oh, Georgie boy, you’re a comedian.READ MORE

Take all this in with one skeptical eye, but rumors are flying wildly over the nearly-finished sets of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. Normally, we don’t hold with the sort of outlandish, unsupported rumors that come with superhero movie territory, but we can’t resist them if they’re just weird enough – or wish-fulfilling enough – to be interesting. And boy, is this one interesting. Hit the jump for wild, unabashed speculation, news about that Phase 1 box set, and some more set photos!READ MORE

Marvel has a number of mystery projects in the works that we only know the release dates for, but other than the Inhumans and Runaways, Doctor Strange is the name that keeps popping up in bits and bobs of rumory rumors like these and this.
But now, on top of all that, we’ve got the ever popular leaked evidence source of domain name purchases to go on. The Disney Music Group recently purchased a number of domain names for the soundtracks to future films in the Marvel franchise, and the list contains references to a certain Sorcerer Supreme.READ MORE

Is it really the right time to start sharing news about movies that won’t come out until 2014? I mean, sure, every year now sounds like it’s ridiculously far in the future by virtue of beginning with “201,” but come on. Even The Hobbitses will have come out by the time 2014 rolls around.
Well, apparently it is, when Marvel says it’s going to put out two movies in 2014 and doesn’t even say what they are.READ MORE

It looks like Doctor Strange–the neurosurgeon, master magician, and “Sorcerer Supreme” of the cosmos–will be one of the first non-Avenger Marvel characters to make the jump to the big screen. Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer (who wrote the recent Conan the Barbarian reboot) have been attached to draft a script, and apparently the project will be live-action and not, as was previously reported, an animated Pixar production.READ MORE

Continuing the juggernaut (arg, not intentional) of Marvel comics news today, NBC’s PopcornBiz blog has an extensive interview with Kevin Feige, Marvel’s President of Production, in which they get him to reveal a number of things about the future of Marvel’s great bid to bring comic book-type continuity to the mainstream big screen. For example, after mentioning that Ant-Man is getting close to greenlight,
“The next one is Dr. Strange,” he reveals. “I’d like to tap into two things: tap more into the world of magic – which ‘Thor’ isn’t, really, but Strange entirely is, and I like that a lot; and then also continue to explore this sort of cosmic side of our universe, which Thor is a big part of, but not the only part. So those two things, in addition to the solid foundation of what’s happening on Earth, I think, could be great.”
But wait, its not just the Sorcerer Supreme, there’s more.READ MORE
