On Friday morning, Marvel made a huge announcement on Twitter, and fans are not happy.

Marvel Entertainment is joining forces with Northrop Grumman, an American global aerospace and defense technology company, and the world's fifth-largest defense contractor.

We don't know much yet, but it looks like there will be a promotional comic featuring the Avengers and "Northrop Grumman Elite Nexus," or N.G.E.N.

The arms manufacturer generates over 20 billion dollars in revenue a year.

Marvel Entertainment didn't reveal anything more about the partnership, and to learn more the company encouraged fans to head to their New York Comic Con booth on Saturday afternoon.

The partnership comes as a surprise to many Marvel fans.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is movin' on up.

Tuesday brought word that the Marvel Cinematic Universe visionary has been promoted to chief creative officer over all over Marvel Entertainment, including TV, comic publishing, and film, according to Deadline.

This means Feige will control all of the Marvel movies, TV shows and comics, which been a separated effort for a while.

Feige will still operate as the president of Marvel Studios, leading the MCU into Phase 4 of live-action films and Disney Plus TV shows which includes Black Widow standalone movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness movie, WandaVision, and more.

Considering 10 years ago, Feige fought with Marvel Entertainment just to get creative control over the movies, it's interesting to see him receive full creative control over Marvel properties.

It's a big change, but he's earned it.

In the most recent, still pretty brief teaser for Marvel’s second season of Iron Fist, we get menace and a little bit of fanservice: flashbacks to villainous figures that Danny refers to as “bad memories,” interspersed with a fight that looks pretty sharp, with two warriors tangling fist-to-fist in a marbled, round room.

And then, in that fight, we see Danny put on this:

In the flashback, it’s framed as, perhaps, part of his training, a mask of some sort of ritual or rite.

But fans will recognise it as very similar—though perhaps a bit more homebrew than one would like — to the classic Iron Fist combo, which merges yellow mask with green tunic.

I’m a bit torn on the look.

It’s a little silly, and a little self important, but isn’t that just about right, for Danny Rand?

Netflix’s cancellation of Marvel’s Daredevil was a blow to many, but few more than Charlie Cox—the actor who played Daredevil himself, Matt Murdock.

After a week of silence, he’s finally come out and said his piece.

“A lot of us really expected to keep going, and I certainly did,” Cox told Entertainment Weekly.

“The truth is, I felt like we had a lot of stories to tell, and although I understand [the cancellation], I’m very saddened by that.”

Though Daredevil debuted on Netflix in 2015, Cox was cast as the character in the summer of 2014.

That’s four and a half years, a long time to be playing one character in this day and age.

At last, Deadpool has given us the answer to the age-old question of how you tell fans everything about a new movie without actually telling them anything that happens in the movie.

That's right—this is a completely spoiler-free trailer for Deadpool 2, in which all you'll do is watch Deadpool painting some happy trees and mighty mountains.

He'll be "whacking off" his paintbrush.

This is actually an extended parody of the old Bob Ross TV segments in which the famed hippie dude with a floof of hair taught people to paint "happy trees."

Just in case you think the teaser's too over-the-top, check out the real Bob Ross in the video below.

It's hard to beat this guy in the stoner goofball department.

It looks like we’re getting more details about the superhero side of Disney’s planned (and apparently still-unnamed) streaming service, thanks to a story in Variety.

We already knew that the Disney service would include original Marvel and Star Wars shows.

On the Star Wars side, there’s a revival of “The Clone Wars” and a live action series produced by Jon Favreau, for which Disney might pay $100 million for the first 10 episodes.

Now Variety is reporting that Disney has plans for limited series that will star Marvel superheroes like Loki and Scarlet Witch (yes, they’re actually reformed supervillains, but let’s not get technical here).

Basically, these are characters who are popular but maybe not popular enough to carry a big-budget film on their own.

That also means you shouldn’t expect an Iron Man or Captain America series.

In a movie like Avengers: Endgame, you’re dealing in worlds, characters, and costumes that are all built from visual effects, to the point where even the office building from the Captain America vs. Captain America fight was all-digital.

Sometimes, it’s nice to celebrate the moments that were real.

One character, arguably the greatest hero of Endgame, could have easily been a digital effect.

Luckily for us, they’re totally real.

We’re talking, of course, about the rat.

You know, the one that basically set the entire movie in motion when it inadvertently freed Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm?

Marvel Entertainment has published the first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.

2, the sequel to a film that some considered to be the surprise hit of 2014.

The star-studded cast of characters are all back including Star-Lord Chris Pratt , Gamora Zoe Saldana and Drax the Destroyer Dave Bautista as well as Rocket Bradley Cooper and his accomplice Groot Vin Diesel .

The trailer, set to Blue Suede's lovable "Hooked on a Feeling," doesn t reveal much of anything with regard to the movie s plot but that s probably for the best at this stage.

2 is scheduled to arrive on May 5, 2017, in 3D and IMAX.

The post cryptically said, "Sometimes not even 'heroes' can save themselves."

Netflix verified the show's third, and final, season in April.

The streaming service axed its Marvel-live action shows, including Jessica Jones in February.

Krysten Ritter plays Jessica Jones, a private investigator with superhuman strength with a penchant for bourbon.

"I’d be doing James a disservice if I didn’t," he said.

The movie is scheduled for release in 2020.

It was basically a foregone conclusion, but Marvel Entertainment and Netflix made it official this week: Luke Cage will be back for a second season.

One of the most-watched original series on Netflix, and the recipient of extremely positive reviews from critics and general audiences, Luke Cage debuted September 30 on Netflix and was the third solo series to come out of Marvel s partnership with the streaming video service.

Although the announcement video that confirmed the series return didn t reveal the exact date when star Mike Colter will return as the titular, steel-skinned superhero, it did offer a nice reminder that Pop s Barber Shop — a central location in the Harlem-based show — is indeed staying open for business.

— Luke Cage @LukeCage December 4, 2016

Along with Colter in the lead role, Luke Cage also starred Simone Missick The Road to Sundance as Misty Knight, who will return for the upcoming crossover miniseries The Defenders.

That series will bring together many of the main characters and supporting cast from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and the upcoming Iron Fist series.

In the wake of Marvel cutting James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.

3 after controversial tweets of his were resurfaced by alt-right figures, the film’s tight-knit cast has been openly advocating for the studio to bring the director back.

While previous reports suggested Marvel still planned to use Gunn’s script for the third Guardians instalment, it was unclear and seemingly unlikely whether he’d helm the film.

According to a new report from Variety, Gunn recently met with Disney studio chairman Alan Horne (Kevin Feige was reportedly unavailable at the time) and while the meeting was “civil and professional,” Gunn left it without his old job back.

And that’s pretty much that.

Now, Marvel’s hunt for a new director continues and, one imagines, Gunn’s probably thinking about all of those gigs other Hollywood studios are supposedly desperate to give him.
