Hero Blend #38: Marvel Vs. DC - Who Has The More Impressive Slate?
This past summer’s San Diego Comic-Con was a rather disappointing one for comic book movie fans. While many – including myself – had incredibly high expectations of big reveals, we were actually left learning very little big news. This past week, however, has been what I expected Comic-Con to be.

5 Big Reasons Marvel Will Probably Kill Off Captain America
The big Marvel movie news this week was that Robert Downey Jr. would be joining Captain America 3, which is set to be an adaptation of the crossover Civil War. In the comics, Steve Rogers was killed after Civil War ended, and while it’s unlikely he’ll die in Captain America 3, Marvel may be setting up the patriotic superhero for demise in the coming years. Here are reasons they would do that.

How Marvel Used Captain America 2 To Set Up Civil War
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to change is a massive way. As we learned earlier tonight, Robert Downey Jr. is now in negotiations to star in Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America 3 - a film that is expected to launch big screen adaptation of the massive 2006 Marvel Comics crossover event known as Civil War. What you may not know, however, is that we have already started to see evidence of this brewing conflict in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
What Marvel's Civil War Might Mean For Guardians Of The Galaxy 2
Civil War is raging on planet Earth. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) stands on one side of the battle. Captain America (Chris Evans) stands on the other. How does this affect the protectors of the universe, the Guardians of the Galaxy?

The Avengers 3 And The Avengers 4 May Have Already Found Directors
Despite the fact that they had zero experience making blockbuster movies, directors Joe and Anthony Russo absolutely knocked it out of the park making Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Their action sequences were absolutely thrilling, they demonstrated a great sense of story and pacing, and they got amazing performances out of each and every actor.
Robert Downey Jr Will Be In Captain America 3 To Launch This Epic Storyline
With Marvel Comics revealing earlier today that they would be rebooting the famed crossover storyline Civil War, we immediately began speculating that the event would bleed into the goings-on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We suggested that it was possible that Captain America and Iron Man would end up going toe-to-toe at some point down the line, offering up The Avengers 4 as a possibility. It turns out that we may have been way off. It turns out that Civil War may actually be starting in 2016.
Captain America Might Fight Iron Man In Avengers 4, Here's Why
Before they teamed up to defeat Loki and his invading Chitauri forces at the end of Joss Whedon's The Avengers, Captain America and Iron Man didn't exactly get along. They eventually put their personal differences aside to fight evil and even became friends, but if new developments at Marvel Comics are any indication, it may not be too long before the two Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes once again find themselves at each other's throats.
Why Marvel's Teaser Announcement Will Be A Game-Changer
Many geeks are already attempting to predict what happens in Avengers 3 and beyond, using only the clues Marvel has given to us and deductive reasoning. However, we may get a glimpse of what’s coming soon, as Robert Downey Jr. has said that Marvel has a plan in the works that will be announced.

Why Jeremy Renner Doesn’t Think Hawkeye Deserves His Own Movie
As things stand in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye is easily identifiable as the most under utilized character. ] The good news is that Marvel is aiming to correct this course in the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron - but if you're anticipating a Hawkeye solo movie at any point, you probably shouldn't hold your breath.

Hero Blend #33: How Captain America 3 Can Change The Marvel Cinematic Universe
If you’ve been frequenting Cinema Blend recently, you may have noticed an influx in the number of stories about Captain America 3. Part of this is because Captain America: The Winter Soldier arrived on Blu-ray this week and the directors have been on the press tour promoting it, talking about the franchise’s future. But it’s also because we’re still coming down from the thrill ride that was the last Captain America adventure and can’t wait to see more.

Captain America 3 Likely Won't Dig Into Marvel's Civil War
The Civil War series stretched multiple issues over several months and involved the federal government launching a Superhero Registration Act. The storyline divides key Marvel heroes into two camps: one led by Captain America and the other led by Iron Man.

Chris Evans Isn't Ready To Give Up Captain America's Shield Just Yet
While the actor is still contractually obligated to be in the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3 and the inevitable Avengers 3, the actor has been talking seriously about his possible retirement, and it has been heavily rumored that co-star Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes is being set up to take Captain America title after Steve Rogers is gone (as seen in the comics).

The duo did reveal, though, that early drafts of The Winter Soldier did make room for Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye character, but in the end, “he didn’t have enough to do and suddenly it seemed like we were giving him short shrift. Hey, it’s a cameo!” A lot of his actions fell to the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Maybe a different Avenger can end up teaming up with Cap in the third installment.

Why Batman v Superman Ran Away From Captain America
It's true that this year is an excellent case study, at least in regards to the domestic box office. The two biggest films of the year domestically are Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Lego Movie, which bowed in the spring. And aside from Transformers, no other film opened at the level of The Winter Soldier until Guardians Of The Galaxy, an August release.

Hero Blend #29: DC Comics Just Changed The Future Of Comic Book Movies
Marvel Studios certainly has a jump start on the DC when it comes to building a cinematic universe, having been establishing itself as a brand since 2008, but don’t count the home of Batman and Superman out. In addition to having the big blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice scheduled to hit theaters in 2016, they have huge active plans for the entire rest of the decade. And this week we got a very limited peak into exactly what they have in the works.

Batman v Superman Is Moving Away From Captain America 3's Release Date
Marvel Studios and Warner Bros./DC Comics have been playing a serious game of chicken these last few months. While Marvel claimed the May 6, 2016 release date as their own all the way back in June 2013 (later announcing the date as being for Captain America 3), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice decided to move to the exact same weekend this past March after being delayed nearly a year.

Anthony Mackie Doesn't Think He'll Ever Play Captain America, Here's Why
When Sebastian Stan revealed his nine-picture deal with Marvel Studios earlier this year, it painted a pretty clear picture of what the comic book franchise has planned for the future of Captain America. With Chris Evans' contract ending after Avengers 3, it makes sense that Marvel would follow the events of the comics and have the character's life-long best friend, Bucky Barnes (Stan's character), pick up the title and the shield to become the new Captain America.

Why Captain America 3 Won't Be Moving Away From Batman v Superman
The Marvel-DC movie rivalry hasn't quite reached WWE levels yet, but something tells me it's getting there. There hasn't been any direct competition between the two sides as of yet: Marvel has consistently made comparatively strong films, while DC's range from great (The Dark Knight) to stupefyingly awful (Green Lantern).

Hero Blend #12: Batman Vs. Superman Vs. Captain America
Marvel and DC have been competing as the biggest names in the comic book industry for decades, and that rivalry has spilled over into Hollywood in a major way. Big screen adaptations of classic characters like Iron Man, Batman, Captain America and Superman have helped the two companies compete for dominance in the comic book movie world, both in terms of quality of product and success at the box office. In 2016, however, their quest for dominance will be coming to a head.

Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros., says, "It doesn’t make a lot of sense for two huge superhero films to open on the same date but there is a lot of time between now and [May 6, 2016). However at this time, we are not considering a change of date for Batman vs. Superman.”

Fury in not one, not two but nine different movies. It was a pretty big surprise at the time, but it turns out that Jackson wasn't the only actor Marvel signed a nine picture deal with.

So what is the next step here? It's hard to say. May 6, 2016 is still a long time from now, so both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. will have plenty of time to think about whether or not they really want to release two such big projects on the same day. If they do end up coming out the same weekend, then it's possible that they will both just end up eating each other's box office and then nobody walks away a winner.

Doctor Strange, for one, is officially going to be a part of the studio's plans going forward, but we have yet to hear an answer to "when." Both Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans are attached to make three solo movies as Thor and Cap, so it's possible that one or two of the 2016 spots belongs to them.
