When Star Wars: The Force Awakens released in theaters last month, we all knew it was the beginning of something massive. Disney spent over $4 billion on the property, so no matter how many records The Force Awakens breaks in theaters, on Blu-ray or on demand, you van guarantee that the company is already looking forward to the future of the franchise.
Over the weekend, Netflix announced that Jessica Jones would return for a second season. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering all of the accolades and attention that the show received, but apparently it was a bit of a shock for Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb, who told reporters on Sunday that he found out at the same time as everyone else.

Are you ready to add another superhero to Marvel’s expanding rotation of Netflix stars?

Although several of the original Netflix shows have received positive attention from critics and fans alike, none have generated quite as much buzz as the series from Marvel.

If you were a fan of the direction Marvel took during Phase 2 of its cinematic universe, you might want to reset your expectations for the oncoming slate of films in Phase 3.

There are going to be plenty of Marvel films worth keeping tabs on over the next several years, but Doctor Strange is personally at the top of my list. And it’s not because Doctor Strange is one of my favorite Marvel characters, but rather because I know so little about him (aside from his involvement in the latest arc of the Avengers and New Avengers comics).
On Monday, we finally learned a bit more about the Sorcerer Supreme’s movie. More →
The first teaser trailer for Captain America: Civil War was released in late November, giving the world its first taste of the next chapter in Marvel’s ongoing saga. 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier was arguably one of the best movies so far in the Marvel series, so this next film has big shoes to fill. Additional footage from the movie that was released a week ago today filled in a few blanks, and now we’ve caught wind of the international cut of the new Captain America trailer, which includes never-before-seen footage that’s nowhere to be found in the original trailer.

Of all the films releasing during Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, none are more mystifying than Doctor Strange. He’s not only one of the few Marvel heroes that will make his big screen debut in 2016, he’s also one of the strangest heroes in Marvel’s exceptionally long history (as his name suggests). More →
Everything Marvel touches turns to gold right now. Or should we say, everything Marvel touches turns into piles of money stacked as high as the eye can see. Of course, Marvel is certainly earning all the cash it’s making because the movies it pumps out are consistently among the most entertaining films of the year. Even rare misses like Iron Man 3 and Avengers Age of Ultron are still wildly entertaining and more than worth the price of admission.
And that brings us to Amazon’s deal of the day for Tuesday, December 8. For one day only, you can enjoy a nicely discounted price on the Amazon exclusive Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase 2 Collection on Blu-ray. More →
Based on everything we’ve seen and everything we’ve heard — the trailers and commercials we can’t stop watching, the elation of the returning cast members, the addition of The Empire Strikes Back screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan — we have plenty of reasons to be excited about the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Nevertheless, confirmation from J.J. Abrams that there won’t be a post-credits scene attached to The Force Awakens managed to make headlines all over the Internet on Monday.
