The moment Carol Danvers became Captain Marvel was, to put it mildly, explosive. When she was exposed to the energy core of Dr. Wendy Lawson’s light-speed engine, she was transformed into the iconic hero of Captain Marvel. In this cool video, visual effects team Scanline VFX takes us behind the scenes of the entire scene — from flight to might.
Far From Home is a twisty movie. No surprises there, given that it features Mysterio, a Spider-Man villain literally known for tricks, twists and illusory escapades. But according to its screenwriter, there was almost an extra twist the team threw into the movie’s narrative that could’ve been very interesting indeed.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is a movie with plenty of twists and turns, and they don’t stop when either of its two credit sequences wrap up. We’ve already provided you some comic book background on its first, and perhaps most major, reveal. But there’s some cool comics canon in the second that has intriguing ramifications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward.
Video: We all know that Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) could totally kick Thanos’ arse, but what about her cat? Marvel has released a Q&A with Reggie, the feline who played Goose in Captain Marvel, asking what goodies he stole from the set and what Avenger he wants to team up with. Surprise: It isn’t Carol.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our regular roundup of the latest in rad merchandise that’s draining our wallets. And this week, it’s even worse. We might be a month away from San Diego Comic-Con, but that just means it’s time for companies to tease us with the cool things that we can’t get without going...and still might not, even if we are. Check it out!
Alien: Covenant’s got nothing on this. Disney has released another deleted scene from Captain Marvel, showing Yon-Rogg having a tense meeting with the Supreme Intelligence. But not just normal tension: It’s sexual tension.
There’s an unsteady, chaotic energy coursing through much of Simon Kinberg’s Dark Phoenix. It almost feels like an extension of the existential crisis its titular hero finds herself in as she becomes the most powerful mutant to ever walk the Earth. That feeling, according to Kinberg, was a wholly intentional part of his directorial debut.
While the cast of Simon Kinberg’s Dark Phoenix has spoken about the similarities between the film’s original ending and the ending of another recent big superhero film — similarities that were so extensive they required the final X-Men instalment to undergo extensive reshoots — everyone has been coy about what that other superhero film was, as well as how Dark Phoenix’s new ending sets it apart.
Deleted scenes are often moments that, in isolation, are good ideas. But in the broader framework of the movie, where it’s going, how much time it has to get there, they just don’t work.
The story of how Carol Danvers became Captain Marvel is stamped into comic book history. But when comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick came into the picture, she had her own spin—one that tapped into Carol’s feminist identity and made her the source of her own power. Marvel may not have been big on her idea at the time, but it did end up inspiring the Brie Larson movie.
“With great power comes great responsibility” doesn’t just apply to Spider-Man, it applies to any superhero who can use their powers to infuse good in the world. That’s the theme of an exclusive deleted scene io9 is excited to share from Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel.
Imagine if Avengers: Endgame was the first Marvel movie. Not storywise, of course. That would be silly. But think about a team-up, comic book movie on this scale coming into theatres, sight unseen.
Logistically, that feels like a nightmare for a ton of reasons, especially if a company (or several) was tasked with first conceptualising, then designing, crafting and eventually digitally creating all of those characters, all from scratch, for a single movie.
Avengers: Endgame was a riot of flashy fights and fan service, with enough humour thrown in to sometimes feel like a great comedy. It was silly and nonsensical, but above all it was entertaining, and when it needed to hit the emotional, dramatic beats it usually nailed them.
Yet there was a point in the film where I found myself distracted from the sheer inundation of fun — when it became clear that the many, many powerful heroines of the piece weren’t quite on par with the heroes. They were props, there to support the stories of the guys. Endgame did its women no favours and it’s time we talked about it.
