Vanity Fair — After a decade of unprecedented success, Marvel Studios is at a pivotal moment: the looming farewell to some of its founding superheroes, and the rise of a new generation. Kevin Feige, the creative force behind the $13 billion franchise and a slew of Marvel stars, discusses its precarious beginnings, stumbles, and ever-expanding empire.

On a sweltering October weekend, the largest-ever group of Marvel superheroes and friends gathered just outside of Atlanta for a top-secret assignment. Eighty-three of the famous faces who have brought Marvel’s comic-book characters to life over the past decade mixed and mingled—Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk, bonded with Vin Diesel, the voice of Groot, the monosyllabic sapling from Guardians of the Galaxy. Angela Bassett, mother to Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, flew through hurricane-like conditions to report for duty alongside Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brie Larson, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Laurence Fishburne, and Stan Lee, the celebrated comic-book writer and co-creator of Iron Man, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men.

Their mission: to strike a heroic pose to commemorate 10 years of unprecedented moviemaking success. Marvel Studios, which kicked things off with Iron Man in 2008, has released 17 films that collectively have grossed more than $13 billion at the global box office; 5 more movies are due out in the next two years. The sprawling franchise has resuscitated careers (Downey), has minted new stars (Tom Hiddleston), and increasingly attracts an impressive range of A-list talent, from art-house favorites (Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in Doctor Strange) to Hollywood icons (Anthony Hopkins and Robert Redford) to at least three handsome guys named Chris (Hemsworth, Evans, and Pratt). The wattage at the photo shoot was so high that Ant-Man star Michael Douglas—Michael Douglas!—was collecting autographs.

Disney promises that Marvel has at least another 20 years’ worth of characters and worlds to explore—for starters, the studio is finally delivering films with black and female heroes at the core—but declines to offer up any secrets of that ambitious slate. Moviegoers, for now, will simply have to trust in Feige. Luckily for Marvel obsessives, the 44-year-old studio executive is one of them. “At the heart of Kevin is a real”—Scarlett Johansson paused before using the same word everyone does to describe her boss—“fanboy.”

CBR.com – Though her screen time was short, her role was important in the first “Guardians of the Galaxy” film, and Karen Gillan’s Nebula will certainly be featured more as the Marvel movies go further. In fact, her role as Gamora’s adopted sister will continue on past the “Guardians” franchise and into “Avengers: Infinity War.”

In a recent interview with BBC News to promote her directorial debut “Tupperware Party”, she spoke very briefly about her role as Nebula in the “Guardians” franchise, and reminded fans that they can look forward to the sequel to the before dropping this tiny tease: “And then I’ll be making a little appearance in the next Avengers movies.”

Yep, that’s it, unfortunately. While it’s not truly groundbreaking news, it’s still nice to have some kind of confirmation on just who might be in “Avengers: Infinity War”. As we know, the movie will supposedly feature nearly the entire cast of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, so getting to narrow it down – even by one – is very much appreciated.

Of course, it does make sense for Gillan’s Nebula to appear in the “Avengers” film, as she is the adopted daughter of Thanos in the MCU. Her character also plays an incredibly major role in the original “Infinity Gauntlet” comic; in that series, Thanos assembled the six Infinity Gems, builds the Gauntlet, and then proceeded to rule the universe. Nebula is one of his earliest victims, in fact, falling in dramatic fashion to the power of the Gauntlet.

Opening May 5, 2017, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki and Kurt Russell. Opening May 4, 2018, “Avengers: Infinity War” features a sprawling ensemble cast that’s so far confirmed to include Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Pratt, Jeremy Renner, Benedict Cumberbatch and Brie Larson, among others.
