It’s called the news dump. You don’t drop news on a Friday at the end of the day, just hours before the Memorial Day weekend because you want people to read the news. In fact, this strategy hopes that by Monday you’ll have forgotten and life will go on.

Guardians Of The Galaxy
“Life is giving us a chance.” Yep, it’s a bunch of criminals in outer space with a chance to do good and redeem themselves. It’s Marvel’s “The Guardians Of The Galaxy,” an untested, mostly unknown property that they’re trying to make into a new franchise. No one knows it? Marvel’s brand and their “if you build it properly” motto seems to be working for them.

Zac Efron, Neighbors
Okay, so those "Star Wars: Episode 7" rumors didn't exactly pan out, but maybe under the massive Disney roof, there is still room for Zac Efron in another big franchise. And hell, the kid is hot, starring in the number one movie at the box office right now "Neighbors." Plus, those abs. Amirite?

Guardians Of The Galaxy/Avengers
Everyone wants a spin-off. That’s the talk du jour. It’s not enough to just have a franchise, you need solo films to keep that franchise going and going. It’s the new black: release a movie every other year while the main mothership has its flagship super-movie every two or three years, right? Fox hopes to do the same with the “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” series and Mystique (a mooted spin-off while the super-hero team carries on every other few years). And Marvel obviously already has this plan in place: an “Avengers” movie ever few years and in between them they have their solo character movies, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Ant-Man,” “Thor: The Dark World” etc.

While Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” hasn’t exactly blown doors down in the ratings department for ABC, it hasn’t stopped the studio from developing more projects for the small screen. Their next TV project, “Agent Carter,” has excited ABC’s executives so much that they’re foregoing the pilot altogether and may be letting it go straight to series.

Captain America 2, Best/Worst
This past Friday, after opening worldwide a few weeks earlier and performing like gangbusters, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the ninth Marvel Studios movie to date, arrived in the U.S., and swiftly proceeded to be the biggest opening of 2014 to date, smashing April records with a hefty $96 million weekend. That's a big step up for the second adventure to topline Chris Evans' super-soldier Steve Rogers to date, no doubt helped by very positive reaction from fans and critics alike.

The Avengers
Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man" seems to be done most of its major casting, but one more name has been announced. Relative unknown and "Terminator 3" actor Matt Gerard has joined the cast as the movie's villain; or one of them anyhow. The identity of that villain is currently unknown and like most Marvel movies, we assume they'll be more than one antagonist
