Also read: Russo Brothers Would Love To Work With Marvel After ‘Avengers 4’ & Fox-Disney Merger Feige stated that they have not begun working on the X-Men’s MCU debut, though he noted that Thor’s first film offers an example of how a character can be introduced to the universe that has already been established: “You’re right, it’s too far out to talk about whether it will happen of not. We’re not working on it in any way, shape or form. We’ve got five films on the docket we’ve already announced that are taking a big percent of our time. But I will say to your very good question that if you look back to Phase 1 and after “Iron Man” was released and we announced our upcoming films, one of which was “Thor,” people said, “How in the WORLD can you bring in a Norse god who flies with a hammer into the world you’ve established of Tony Stark and Stark Industries?” That was sort … [Read more...] about Kevin Feige On How The ‘X-Men’ Could Fit In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Incredibles film came out at a time when superhero films weren’t as abundant as they are now, so it’s a pretty cherished gem in fanboy culture. With the sequel coming out, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to affect The Incredibles in some way. During a Q&A, The Incredibles director Brad Bird was asked how the Marvel Cinematic Universe affected the sequel and he had a lot to say. “Well, on some level it’s kinda like going out to the football field and there’s been way too many games on it, you know? And there’s this kind of dry dirt with a few sprigs of grass and everyone thinks it’s kinda clunky and life doesn’t grow there anymore. So, there’s that aspect where you feel like, ‘Oh Jesus, it’s really been covered.’ It kind of reminds me of the way Westerns were in the late ’50s, where if you had a television 95 percent of what was on was the Westerns.

But next month, "Avengers: Infinity War" comes out and she is VERY EXCITED about it.As a fan of the franchise, I too am excited by this development.

Not even my darling, obsessive-compulsive daughter is keen to participate in an 18-film marathon.As a parent, I am excited at the prospect of a common interest with my daughter. But this gives rise to an interesting question: What are the fewest number of MCU films to watch to understand "Infinity War"? Some are obvious; no one needs to watch "The Incredible … [Read more...] about How to understand the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 7 movies or less
