A decade of movies has brought us to the end of a long road in the form of Avengers: Infinity War, an epic undertaking we finally got our first, glorious look at today. The trailer paints a grim future for our heroes as Thanos makes his long-awaited move, but it’s also jam-packed with hints at the war to come.
It’s difficult to imagine what sort of response Marvel expected when it announced a partnership with Northrop Grumman, the fifth largest defense contractor in the world. But the publisher’s decision to axe the deal following a swift wave of backlash suggests that it didn’t anticipate people being turned off.
Marvel has ended its comics partnership with defense contractor Northrop Grumman, having previously cancelled Saturday’s New York Comic Con announcement event, after facing criticism for seemingly promoting war profiteering.

The upcoming Avengers movie is currently filming in Atlanta, Georgia. Recent set photos reveal what appears to be a Tokyo setting. It doesn’t quite hit its target. Here’s why.
If good ol’ truck-driving, CB-radio-in-his-skull superhero Ulysses Solomon Archer (star of the 1980s U.S. 1 title) does not appear in this book in some form, I will be crushed.
Sift through your memory banks through the founding members of the Avengers. Pick out the one who wound up living the most screwed-up life. A no-prize to everyone who chose Hank Pym. The first Ant-Man returns to Earth this week, more powerful and creepy than he used to be.
Thus far, 2016 is the year of the superhero. Deadpool and Batman v. Superman both shattered the box office, proving that audiences can’t get enough of costumes and powers. But what’s the best superhero movie of all time? And what’s the worst? Here’s our ranking of all 109 superhero movies to date.
Last night, a member of Kotaku’s editorial team grappled with the fact that Avengers: Infinity War is supposedly going to be stuffed to the gills with, like, 67 characters. This is what happened next.

While the world is raving about the new Captain America: Civil War trailer, on my shelf, it’s still The Age of Ultron.
Tony Stark is kinda broke. New Captain America Sam Wilson and old Captain America Steve Rogers aren’t talking. Odin’s firstborn isn’t worthy to wield Mjolnir anymore. Marvel’s still going to have an Avengers team, of course, but it’s going to take some doing to have them assemble effectively.
The Vision has always wanted to be human. It’s kind of his whole “thing.” This week, he tries again—harder than he ever has before—by setting up shop out in the suburbs with a synthezoid wife and children.
There is a good chance I am having more fun pretending to be Iron Man with Disney’s PlayMation toys than any child ever could.
How can TT Games make a LEGO game equal to rival the size and scope of LEGO Marvel Superheroes with only the two main Avengers movies to pull from? It can’t, so it pulls from four more.
