GeekZenith has revealed four new concept images from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians of the Galaxy." They come via the just-released Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Blu-ray box set. One image clearly depicts how they're translating the Winter Soldier character to the big screen (by seemingly not changing a thing). Another, as seen above, captures "Guardians of the Galaxy's" "Star Wars vibe". The other two photos reveal an otherworldly landscape and a spaceship; both could be from "Guardians," but it'd be unwise to rule out "Thor: The Dark World."
Check out all four images below.
What happens when you take the live-action Batmen of old — Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale — and turn them into one man? You get Bruce Wayne — a fellow who looks like the man you see below.
Thanos had only a few precious seconds of screen time in "Marvel's The Avengers," but the appearance was memorable enough to leave fans' minds racing over the possibilities of his next appearance. When we spoke with Kevin Feige at Marvel, he was coy about where Thanos will pop up next, but insisted that there are very specific plans for the Mad Titan's role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While we all wait to hear more about Thanos' future at Marvel, we can at least enjoy a few new looks at the death-worshipping villain thanks to high-res screen grabs from "Marvel's The Avengers" Second Screen Experience app, captured by the good folks at Comic Book Movie. See some Thanos images below!
We could argue all day about which comic book universe — Marvel or DC — is on top creatively, but how about commercially? "Marvel's The Avengers" was the big winner at the box office this summer, while Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight Rises" was no slouch, either. But to date, with dozens of movies already under their belt, the question remains: who is winning the box office battle between Marvel and DC?
That question has an answer now thanks to a new inforgraphic from FancyDressCostumes that breaks down the total box office numbers Marvel and DC have respectively accumulated over the years. See it in full below.
From reddit user mrmanager28 comes this close look at a blueprint Tony Stark is seen working with at the end of "The Avengers." Look off towards the right of the diagram and you'll see the words for yourself: Avengers Tower. Perhaps that hanging "A" on Stark Tower wasn't just symbolism, but an actual sign for what's about to become Earth's mightiest hangout space in the coming sequel? You be the judge in the comments below.
More than three months have passed since "Marvel's The Avengers" hit theaters, but here we are, still talking about Joss Whedon's superhero smash-'em-up with years to go before the sequel drops. The debate rages on as to which of Earth's mightiest heroes really was the mightiest — does the award go to Hulk? How about Thor? There's still no answer.
What we do know is this: some Avengers are more talked about than others. Design Taxi put together the following infographic chronicling which Marvel characters are generating the most discussion and buzz online from June 10 through July 10.

If you took off Bane's mask, it would be extremely painful — for you. But the pain wouldn't come from back-breaking, mind you. It would come from the endless laughter at what you see beneath that mask.

Being Batman? Chump change compared to being Iron Man — not that that should surprise you considering the seven (soon to be eight) high-tech suits of armor Tony Stark has in his wardrobe.

Batman fans have not one, but three movies to look forward to in the next year or so. Not only do they have Christopher Nolan's indie passion project "The Dark Knight Rises," but a two-part DC Comics Premiere Movie adaptation of Frank Miller's iconic series "The Dark Knight Returns."
Yesterday, we heard that Peter Weller and Ariel Winter would play the aged Bruce Wayne and his young female ward, respectively of course. Today, the Hollywood Reporter has a handful of images from the upcoming film, which give us our first look at how Miller's art has made the leap to animation.
