Marvel fans may have to have their hankies at the ready from the end of the trailers, if rumours just dropping from Avengers: Infinity War are to be believed.
Stan Lee, the visionary behind Marvel Comics, has denied claims that he is the victim of elder abuse, following stunning claims that his daughter is trying to gain control of his estate. An exposé in The Hollywood Reporter paints a grim picture of allegations that his daughter Joan Celia ‘J.C.’ Lee and others including Keya Morgan, a memorabilia dealer who now acts as Lee’s gatekeeper, are attempting to gain control of his assets. “My relationship with my good friend Keya Morgan is great, we’re best friends.
Black Panther is now the third highest-grossing movie at the US box office, passing the record previously held by Titanic. With a haul of $665 million in total in the States, it’s beaten James Cameron’s disaster epic, which scored $659 million.

Move over, Elsa; Black Panther has entered the top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time, knocking out record-breaking animation Frozen.
Former Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston is set to appear at his first ever Comic Con event in London this summer.
Chris Evans debuted a stunning new look – complete with bristling tache – as he made his debut on Broadway, playing a police officer in the play Lobby Hero.
The Ryan Coogler helmed Marvel movie has taken $631 million, as of last weekend, sailing past The Avengers' $623 million in 2012.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” has a great cast, but there’s one clear star: Baby Groot. Voiced by Vin Diesel, the tiny version of the bounty-hunting plant creature and partner of Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) is super cute, and Groot has most of the best comedy moments in the movie. Baby Groot resulted from Groot’s heroic sacrifice toward the end of the first “Guardians of the Galaxy.” During that movie, the tree creature used his ability to grow branches to encircle the other Guardians and protect them as the ship they were aboard crashed.
Justice League's behind-the-scenes problems are well-documented now, but it's not the first superhero movie to have super-sized difficulties coming to screen.
Note: This commentary contains spoilers for the movie “Justice League”. When “Superman” came out in 1978 starring Christopher Reeve as the title character, it promised audiences that they would believe a man could fly. Although other superhero films had come before it, “Superman” was the first major one to have a budget befitting a superhero movie.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is ramping up its production line this year with three films instead of its usual two: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’, ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. It’s a signal of intent from Marvel and one of confidence in the hugely successful cinematic universe model which began with ‘Iron Man’ in 2008.
A new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (in theaters May 5) premiered during the Super Bowl, featuring a little bit of everything fans could want — including Baby Groot, shirtless Chris Pratt, and a perfectly-timed Drax joke. The extended Super Bowl spot, above, begins with a mysterious golden-skinned woman (click here if you want to know her identity) asking Star-Lord (Pratt) who in the hell he thinks he is. Thanos’ daughter Nebula (Karen Gillan) seems to have been promoted from villain to teammate and antenna-wearing empath Mantis (Pom Klementieff) is a new addition — at least, for as long as she can avoid fireballs.
By now, the trailers for Logan (in theaters March 3) have made it very clear that this is not a typical superhero movie. Quiet and despairing, light on special effects and heavy on character drama, the third Wolverine solo film looks to be a drastic departure from previous X-Men films, not to mention the Marvel and DC Comics films that dominate the genre. At a December press event last year, I previewed the first 40 minutes of Logan, and I can tell you that superhero films are never going to be the same.
Rosario Dawson is a Comic Con regular who demands more from the comic book and video game industry. Most recently, she told MTV News that Hollywood shouldn’t just be focused on the gender wage gap. At an AirBnB Havana-themed party in New York City on Tuesday, Dawson told Yahoo Beauty that MTV had not published another wage gap issue she had brought up in her interview: “I also talked about the transgender wage gap, but they cut that out.” She shrugged.
