There was no shortage of emotional moments in Avengers: Infinity War, but most can agree that Peter Parker’s death near the end of the movie was the most heartbreaking. Seeing the teenaged Spider-Man dying in his mentor Iron Man’s arms as Thanos wiped out half of the universe was just too devastating for any Marvel fan to watch without setting off the waterworks.

As the Powers That Be brace for Avengers 4 and with it, the grand finale of the Marvel Cinematic Universe 1.0, Marvel has announced plans to release a new book entitled Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years. Said to be priced at $150, this compendium comes by way of authors Tara Bennett and Paul Terry, who paraded their latest (and greatest?) release to SDCC attendees during Marvel’s panel late yesterday evening. It’ll launch just in time for Avengers 4, too (spring 2019), and some of the content beneath the hood is truly too good to miss. Read More here

Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ geek influence is so profound that it is skipping San Diego Comic-Con, bypassing the mecca of superhero worship because it can afford to wait and promote its spectacles at Disney’s own D23 Expo. The most consistent cog in Disney’s unprecedented global movie dominance, Marvel’s three most recent blockbusters over a mere five months — Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp – grossed $3.7 billion, nearly matching the price Disney paid for Marvel in 2009, the year after Iron Man‘s release. Marvel has generated six of the top 20 global grossing films since then, topped this summer by Avengers: Infinity War crossing the $2 billion mark. It falls behind only Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Black Panther’s $1.3 billion gross lands it in ninth place, and its critical acclaim and cultural impact give Marvel its most viable awards candidate so far. Read More here

It should come as no surprise that Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man gets the most on-screen action in the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After all, he is the one who kicked off the entire MCU in 2008. But who else gets a lot of on-screen time in the MCU? Thanks to one IMDb user, we now know the answer. Read More here

Avengers: Infinity War is coming to Blu-ray soon, and Marvel has unveiled a host of new features and deleted scenes to get us all excited. Among the extended and never-before-seen moments, we will get Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) sparring over their wedding, as well as Wanda (Elisabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) hiding from Thanos’ underlings. There will also be a scene of Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and Drax (Dave Bautista) clashing over their failed mission to Knowhere, as well as a further look into Thanos (Josh Brolin) and Gamora’s (Zoe Saldana) relationship.

There are few movies that are quite as massive as Avengers: Infinity War. The film was a huge production effort involving hundreds of crew members, over 30 characters, and likely some very tired special effects technicians. Couple that with the fact that this was filmed back-to-back with Avengers 4 for an entire year, and you’ve got a production for the ages. Filming Infinity War was probably a challenge for all involved and movie fans are no doubt curious about how such a project was tackled. Check out this cool behind-the-scenes look at how Infinity War was filmed, courtesy of Robert Downey Jr. Read More here

Deadpool 2 will be releasing into theaters this weekend as Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War starts to lose Imax screens to the next superhero in this summer’s theatrical bunch. In the meantime, the MCU film enjoyed $62M in its third time at bat. The other two newcomers, New Line/Warner Bros.’ Life of the Party, starring Melissa McCarthy, came up a bit short from Sunday’s estimate to land with $17.8M while Breaking In was a nice little breakout for Will Packer/Universal coming in better than estimated with a total of $17.6M.

Summer will be in full swing next weekend, with 20th Century Fox/Marvel’s Deadpool 2 expected to reignite the box office with a $130 million-$150 million debut. But until then, we have Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, which is enjoying its third weekend at No. 1 with a three-day total of $60M — not to mention it’s the second-fastest title to $500M at the domestic B.O. in 15 days, which is a day earlier than Star Wars: The Last Jedi and five days later than Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

THURSDAY UPDATE, writethru: Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War has now topped $850M globally with $857.3M through Wednesday. The international box office portion of that is $534.7M off of a $32.2M haul in 52 offshore hubs yesterday. That’s a 50% drop from the offshore Tuesday take which had been boosted by the May Day holiday in many markets. This drop was expected. Still, short of Thanos arriving on Earth with a gauntlet to thwart moviegoing, this Joe and Anthony Russo-helmed juggernaut is set for a speed record to $1B worldwide on Saturday. The Avengers and their brethren are currently pacing 74% above Captain America: Civil War and +66% versus Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Read More here
