This year marks the 10-year anniversary of Marvel Studios, which began with 2008’s Iron Man and has since become one of the premiere movie studios, building on its brand of superheroes. And now to commemorate all of that, Marvel Studios will release all 20 of their films in IMAX theaters. This Marvel Studios 10th Anniversary Film Festival will be only for a limited run, with the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe presented on certain days grouped by theme.
The event was announced via Marvel Entertainment’s official YouTube channel; watch that video and check out the screening dates and themes here below.

Black Panther is the 18th Marvel Studios film to be released. Now just a few months after its initial release, it is coming home on Blu-ray and digital.
Director Ryan Coogler presents audiences with a new kind of superhero film. By weaving in social issues – like culture, identity, and representation – that affect us today, he turns what would have been an ordinary comic book movie into an extraordinary crowning achievement. It’s certainly not a risky film, but one that needed to be made. For there is a superhero in everyone, and it’s high time that we get to see more representation on the big screen. Check out my review of Black Panther on 4K below.
The world may be waiting for the release of Avengers: Infinity War, but many are still talking about the worldwide phenomenon known as Black Panther. Marvel Studios’ latest film has broken all kinds of box office records and has grossed over $1.3 billion nearly nine and a half weeks after its release. So, of course, they would greenlight a sequel.
However, Marvel knows that you just don’t dive in head first without a story or someone to direct it. And that’s why the studio isn’t ready to pull the trigger on starting production. While Ryan Coogler is working on other projects, he isn’t officially signed on to direct Black Panther 2, and Marvel doesn’t seem like they are interested in doing one without him. More on the story below.
As Black Panther continues to break box office records, it’s time to think about its home entertainment release. Yes, just a few months after it hit theaters back in February, Marvel Studios’ latest film is already gearing up for a home video release.
Of course, we aren’t just here to talk about the film itself, but what kind of bonus features you can expect to see. And there will be a lot. From the Wakandan women and the actresses who play them to director commentary from Ryan Coogler. There’s also the usual deleted scenes and gag reels, plus some digital exclusives that will make you want to purchase a ticket to travel to the fictional nation of Wakanda. Check out the full details and a home video trailer below.
Black Panther is easily one of the best Marvel Studios films to come out in recent years. And I am not just saying that because it is the most recent film to be released by the studio. The way it addresses social issues, representation, identity, and feminism and still maintains its superhero feel is incredible.
Now that Marvel is turning its attention to Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is talking about Black Panther‘s success. Check out what he had to say about it, the chances for a sequel and possible spinoffs, and more below.
