32 Stunning ‘Avengers Endgame’ Posters Feature Every Hero

One month from today, Avengers: Endgame will be upon us. The culmination of ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will reach its dramatic conclusion. Two weeks ago, Marvel released the first trailer for the highly anticipated film. The trailer put an emphasis on older Marvel films while offering only glimpses of what to expect.

With the marketing of the film ramping up, Marvel just released thirty-two character posters for the new film featuring all the heroes from Infinity War. Each poster is color coded: sixteen of the posters feature the surviving Avengers in color, while the other sixteen feature the fallen heroes in black-and-white. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

All the characters featured in the trailer are here, along with some surprising additions like Pepper Potts and Happy Hogan. Sadly, the posters also confirm that fan-favorite Shuri did not survive the snap. There are still other characters, like M’Baku and Maria Hill, that have not been shown at all in any previews.

 

Look at the posters here.

 


Avengers: Endgame comes out April 26th.

James Gunn Rehired For ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’

In a sudden and unexpected news, Deadline reports that James Gunn has been rehired for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3! This seems completely out of left field, especially after months of silence from both Disney and Marvel about the situation but Deadline has confirmed the news is legitimate. James Gunn has been reinstated for his beloved franchise, a news that will elicit a shriek of glee from Marvel Cinematic Universe fans.

James Gunn was fired after alt-right journalists dug up his old tweets from a decade ago where he made pedophilia jokes. The tweets were horrific but Gunn has admitted they were a deep mistake and has since matured beyond those days. They were a decade ago, after all. But Disney quickly pulled the trigger once the tweets were reported by news outlets and Gunn was fired. However, since then Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn met with Gunn multiple times. Moved by Gunn’s public apology and his mature handling of the situation, Horn rehired James Gunn.

James Gunn’s words were not defensible but he has matured since the tweets and his words were simply that: words. Unlike others in his situation (Kevin Hart or Kevin Spacey), James Gunn has not engaged in the behavior he poked fun at. In any case, this is good news for Marvel fans and certainly good news for James Gunn. Although Marvel and Disney have remained mum on production details, it is known that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will commence production once Gunn’s next project, Suicide Squad 2, finishes. Gunn took the project after he was fired from the Guardians franchise, making his return to Marvel all the more of a surprise, considering the Suicide Squad franchise is owned by DC.

We’ll keep you updated for further details but for now, let’s all welcome back Gunn to where he belongs!

Raccoon Who Inspired Rocket in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Passes Away

Mr. Oreo, the raccoon who was the inspiration for the character of Rocket in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has passed away aged ten, after a short illness.

 

Mr. Oreo assisted animators in capturing racoon behaviour and movements to create the character of Rocket, who was voiced by Bradley Cooper. Rocket made his first appearance in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and featured in the 2017 sequel, as well as in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. He will also appear in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, which we can only hope will be dedicated to Mr. Oreo.

When Guardians of the Galaxy debuted in Hollywood, Mr. Oreo accompanied director James Gunn on the red carpet.

Mr. Oreo’s death was publicly announced via a Facebook fan page for Guardians of the Galaxy, who received the information from Mr. Oreo’s humans, who thanked their “wonderful vets for their compassion and care.”

RIP Mr. Oreo.
