What If Joss Whedon Made A Marvel TV Show? Some Possibilities…


That Joss Whedon has been signed by Disney/Marvel to write and direct Avengers 2 shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, given the outrageous success of the first one. But that he’s also going to create a “Marvel-based” series for ABC is the far more interesting news to come from Disney today – and the kind of thing that’s likely to drive speculation for quite some time to come.

5 Ways To Help Avengers Reach Avatar‘s Record


Congratulations to Marvel’s The Avengers, which has now become only the third movie of all time to cross $600 million in US box office take alone, with its worldwide take now in the region of $1,438.3 million. Unsurprisingly, with the prospect of the movie potentially becoming the most successful movie in history suddenly coming on the horizon, the question is now raised: Can Marvel and Disney ensure there’s enough gas left in the tank to ensure the movie topples Avatar?

Is <i>Avengers’</i> Movie Success Worth Killing <i>Earth’s Mightiest Heroes</i>?

Is Avengers’ Movie Success Worth Killing Earth’s Mightiest Heroes?


At what point does corporate synergy start becoming ridiculous? I find myself wondering that question upon the announcement of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, the new animated series that will replace the current Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes series because… it’s closer to the movie, apparently? Maybe? But is that enough reason to kill a successful show?

What Actually Counts As a Spoiler, Anyway?


When is a spoiler not a spoiler? When a spoiler for something that doesn’t actually happen in a movie or television show falls in a forest, does anyone hear it? The revelation this week that GI Joe: Retaliation was delayed in part to reshoot scenes that would change a crucial plot point in the movie – which revealed said plot point – has gotten me thinking about the nature of spoilers that aren’t quite spoilers.

Which Heroes Deserve Their <i>Avengers</i> Spotlight Next?

Which Heroes Deserve Their Avengers Spotlight Next?


By now, chances are you’ve seen Marvel’s The Avengers if you have any interest at all in seeing it – or, for that matter, have a partner who has any interest at all in seeing it – and have made your own mind up about its quality or lack thereof (But, really, come on; it’s a good movie). With follow-ups apparently planned for potentially four of the six “official” Avengers, though, we started to wonder: Which character from the movie most deserves the solo spotlight next?

5 Lessons Studios Should Take From Avengers’ Success


To the surprise of no-one, Marvel’s The Avengers wasn’t just a hit on its opening weekend, but a record-breaking one that made money for not just one studio, but three. If anyone knows anything about the movie industry, this means we’re likely minutes away from the announcement of a whole new wave of superhero movies, especially Marvel Comics-related ones. What should studios be thinking about as they seek to capitalize on Avengers‘ success?

The Avengers Vs. “Bigger” Movies: Who Wins?

The Avengers Vs. “Bigger” Movies: Who Wins?


With Marvel’s The Avengers breaking all manner of box office records internationally, it’s somehow surprising to learn that it’s only on track to be the seventh widest opening in US Box Office history. What are the six movies that had better weekends… and, more importantly, how would their leads stack up against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in a fight? That’s right: never mind Avengers Vs. X-Men, this is Avengers Vs. Movies.

How Big Will <i>Avengers</i> Be?

How Big Will Avengers Be?


Finally, some good news for Disney in a year that’s seen John Carter bring some ridiculously heavy clouds to the skies over the Magic Kingdom just for being a (relative) flop: Marvel’s The Avengers looks like it’s going to be a big hit, with pre-release tracking giving it an opening weekend of somewhere in the region of $125 million. Impressive? Sure. But also, just maybe a little low…?
