The internet's favourite fan casting choice, Nathan Fillion, is not in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But that wasn't always the case. Last year, fans caught a glimpse of some very interesting posters of Fillion on the set of the sequel, and now writer-director James Gunn has explained what happened.

Traditionally, Friday night in the US is where TV shows go to die. It's even referred to by many as the "death slot", because so few people watch TV on Friday. So then, it's rather inauspicious for ABC's huge new Marvel show Inhumans that it has been scheduled in that slot. Further, ABC has also moved Agents of SHIELD to — you guessed it — Friday.
Video: When the very first trailer for Fox's Logan dropped last year, it was the ad's careful use of Johnny Cash's haunting "Hurt" that suggested the movie would have an emotional weight and depth to it unlike any other X-Men flick. The song was always perfect crystallisation of the older Wolverine's painful struggle, but in this new trailer for the movie's black-and-white version, footage from the film becomes the emotionally-devastating visual aspect to what's basically the most badarse Johnny Cash music video ever.
This morning we got our first good look at The Gifted, Marvel and Fox's new TV series about a family on the run from an anti-mutant government taskforce. And while a lot of what the show has in store is being kept under wraps, the trailer has a few hints about the state of mutant-kind in this new show, and none of them particularly hopeful.
When Ta-Nehisi Coates and Yona Harvey's Black Panther and; The Crew launched earlier this year, it proved that big publishers like Marvel can, in fact, still tell timely stories about real world issues, like how police brutality devastates black communities. But now, after a mere two issues, Marvel has cancelled the series.
Fox's upcoming X-Men drama The Gifted is a Marvel story as old as time. People with powers walk among us, those without powers fear them, and the government is seemingly hell-bent on capturing and imprisoning all of the... well, the gifted.
Marvel's Inhumans is in full gear for a September release, and it's already raising some questions — mainly, trying to figure out what the hell is going on with Medusa's hair. But a recent comment about how Black Bolt will communicate on the show has got me thinking.
Marvel has been in its share of hot water over the past few months — including when a VP of sales said diverse characters were causing its sales to slump, or when artist Ardian Syaf's contract was sacked for putting controversial messages in X-Men Gold. The latest hotbed is an image that some claim was on Marvel's official Defenders page, which has some awful names for Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Let's put this one to bed early, folks. Marvel didn't do it.
Mjolnir, Thor's magical hammer forged by dwarven blacksmiths out of the enchanted metal uru, has a history of being picky about who can pick it up. If the hammer thinks a person is worthy of its power, hefting it's no big deal. So how the hell the Hydra fascist formerly known as Captain America, waving it around?
Video: There are scant few plot details describing just what sort of adventure Marvel's Inhumans will get into in their upcoming live-action series. But this first trailer for the Inhumans — voiceover only, alas — suggests that Maximus won't be hiding his disdain for his brother and king Black Bolt's approach to politics.
It's been two years since Marvel regained the rights to make Star Wars comics, and since then the publisher has released a ton of comics, both ongoing and miniseries. Want some recommendations on what's out there? We've ranked them all, from the must-reads to the ones you should avoid like they were old Jar Jar Binks.
Today, we got our first look at the royal family of Marvel's upcoming Inhumans TV series. We saw Black Bolt grimacing without his mask, Maximus looking suspiciously like Ramsay Bolton, and, of course, we saw Queen Medusa. Wearing what looks like a Reject Shop wig. Marvel, what the hell is going on?
We got a good look at Netflix and Marvel's Defenders today. As usual, we've broken down the trailer and examined every scene, comparing it to what we know for certain and what we've heard rumoured. Join us, won't you?
Video: The Defenders trailer gave you a team of foul-mouthed adults with bad coping skills, and now the first look at Runaways seems to indicate that its a lighter teen equivalent. Less binge drinking, similar amounts of angst, and a whole lot more mummy and daddy issues. Also, one of these kids is clearly an outspoken feminist.
