Whenever I hear the name Kevin Feige, I get excited.  He is so in love with all the films that Marvel is making, and is always exploding with new information.  Today is no exception.

Feige recently spoke to MTV about the future of Marvel, and served up a load of insider info not just about AVENGERS 2, but Thanos, Hulk, and even Phase III!

Take a look at some of the meatiest questions below (courtesy of Joblo), and try not to burst with excitement.

On whether Thanos was a throwaway at the end of THE AVENGERS: 
“There’s a great track record now about lobbing something in at the last moment to get the audience buzzing. Particularly when it came to Thanos, [we knew] that most people in that audience had no idea who that purple guy was — but they could clearly tell he was important, and knew if they asked the two or three people sitting next to them, somebody would know who he was.”

Thanos’ role in the future of the Marvel films: “Clearly, there’s a purpose to us putting him in the end of that movie. We do have plans for him. I wouldn’t say we ever feel the need to rush anything one way or the other. We succeeded in Phase One because we stuck to our guns and stuck to the plan. That plan took place over many, many years and it ultimately paid off. I see Phase Two unfolding in the same way of us taking our time, us doing what’s right for each individual movie, while folding in elements that will not only build up to the culmination of Phase Two, but even Phase Three.”

**It is important to note that Jim Starlin, the comic book writer who created Thanos, revealed that Marvel is planning to make the character a central part of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, as well as AVENGERS 2

What direction would they take a Hulk movie: “I don’t think there’s a lot that we couldn’t do someday, as the cinematic universe continues to grow and expand and get as big as the comic book universe. ‘Planet Hulk’ is a cool story. ‘World War Hulk’ is a cool story.”

When we can expect a Hulk solo adventure: “Do I think Hulk can carry a movie and be as entertaining as he was in THE AVENGERS? I do believe that. I do believe he absolutely could. We certainly are not even going to attempt that until THE AVENGERS 2. So there’s a lot of time to think about it.”

The hazards of making too many Marvel movies too fast: “I think there’s pitfalls of continuity-overload, and mythology getting so dense that it almost collapses in on itself. It happens every few decades or so in the comics. Apart from that, I’d say everything is on the table.”

Marvel Phase Two will begin on May 3rd, 2013 with IRON MAN 3 and conclude on two years later on May 1st, 2015 with AVENGERS 2.

Wendy Williams Opens Up: “I Have Been Living In A Sober House.”

Published

on

The talk show host, who has been very supportive of both me personally and this website, bravely opened up to viewers today about her struggle with addiction. I wish her strength and applaud her courage.

She said she wanted to be honest with her viewers. “There are people in your family, it might be you, you have been struggling, and I want you to know more of the story… So, this is my autobiographical story, and I’m living it. I’m telling you this.”

“For some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house. … And you know, I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past and I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don’t know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.”

She says that now, after the show she attends meetings around the tri state area and then is driven to a sober house. She then shared details of the facility and a group of guys she shares the common areas with: “They hog the TV and watch soccer, we talk and read and talk and read and then I get bored with them. Doors locked by 10 p.m. Lights out by 10 p.m.. So I go to my room, and I stare at the ceiling and I fall asleep to wake up and come back here to see you. So that is my truth.”

“I know, either you are calling me crazy or the bravest woman you know,” she continued. “I don’t care.”

Williams’ Hunter Foundation has already placed 56 people into facilities world wide since she announced a substance abuse hotline little more than a week ago.

It took a lot of bravery to stand before her audience and the world to share her truth. I personally admire her so much for taking this pivotal step, and opening up to her viewers.

We wish you the best, Wendy!

BUZZ: Is There A ‘Drake And Josh’ Reboot In The Works?!

Published

Well, hug me brotha! Drake Bell hinted at a Drake And Josh reboot!

If you grew up in the early 2000’s, then you remember watching a pair of goofy yet lovable step-brothers cause all sorts of trouble while having your after school snack. Shout out to the Little Debbie Cosmic Brownie! I digress. Drake And Josh was a hit sitcom that ran from 2004-2007 on Nickelodeon and fans have been hoping for a reboot for years.

Well, when Drake Bell walked down the red carpet at the iHeart Radio Awards, People asked about his latest project and he hinted at the highly anticipated reboot.

“We’re working on something. I’m excited. I think we have a great idea. [The reboot] is going to be way more creative, way cooler than just you know the college years or something like that. We knew that if we were ever going to come back, it’s got to be something cool. I’m excited to see what the fans think.”

Drake went on to praise his co-star, Josh Peck, for his “amazing comedic wit and incredible timing” and says the two still “click.” Which is good to hear since that whole wedding debacle. What wedding debacle you ask? Well in June 2017, Josh got married and much to everyone’s surprise Drake was not invited to the soirée. Many a fan thought the best friends had disbanded but despite a few bitter barbs on Twitter, it seems as though the besties are their best ever. No word on when we can expect the reboot but sometimes hope is enough to hold you over.

OMGTL: Pauly D And Vinny Are Looking For Love On A Brand New Dating Show

Published

Why have a rose ceremony, when you can have a “bros” ceremony?!

Two of America’s favorite best friends and bachelors are turning to reality tv to help them find love. That’s right, Pauly D and Vinny Guadagnino from MTV’s The Jersey Shore are tired of the single life and are ready to find their one true loves. Although finding someone they will love more than one another might prove to be tricky…

A Double Shot At Love will feature the two Jersey boys living in a mansion together with 20 women, all vying for a chance to fist bump their way to the altar. Can’t you just smell the tanning-lotion coated drama already?! While both bachelors have had pretty significant relationships in their lives (Pauly D even has a child from a previous relationship) they both are looking to settle down and find Mrs. Right. And who better to help with that than your bestie?

The entire premise reminds me of the VH1 reality-dating show golden years with hits such as Flavor Of LoveRock Of Love and I Love New York. And if you ask me, television has been absolutely dull since we were last blessed with those shows.

The new series premieres on Jerzday, April 11th on MTV. Click below to see the official, and funny, promo.
