BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Guardians of the Galaxy is on track to being the highest grossing movie of the year, not to mention possibly the most popular Marvel outing yet. But the love for all things, Groot, Gamora, Rocket, Drax and Star-Lord is being lost on the Chineses. Well, lost in translation anyway.
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.
Gosling hasn’t flirted with tentpoles over the course of his career. He makes movies like Drive, The Place Beyond the Pines, Blue Valentine and Lars and the Real Girl -- smaller, offbeat and director-driven movies that find niche audiences but aren’t, you know, superhero movies.
On the heels of the rumor that Ewan McGregor might be up for the part, here are the six surprising names that reportedly are on the studio’s short list to play Doctor Strange.
For the past 24 hours or so, we've been completely distracted by the news of Civil War brewing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe... but that doesn't mean we've completely forgotten about the Doctor Strange casting race. In recent weeks and months we've heard a constant stream of rumors about who will play the Master of the Mystic Arts, and while names like Joaquin Phoenix, Ethan Hawke and Keanu Reeves have been mentioned as potential candidates for the gig, Marvel has not yet revealed their choice.
It’s safe to say that Marvel has enough material for its cinematic universe in the coming ears, whether it’s introducing new superheroes like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange or adapting storylines like Civil War. However, despite the announcements of new characters and new developments, there’s still one dangling thread regarding the MCU: what’s the plan for Thanos?
In a surprising move from Marvel, Robert Downey Jr. is in final negotiations to star in 2016’s Captain America 3. The movie will adapt the 2006 event Civil War, which saw Marvel superhumans on opposing sides of the Superhuman Registration Act and shook the Marvel world to its core. Here is everything you need to know about that story, as well as what it might mean for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
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.
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?
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.
If rumors can be believed, there is a real chance that Spider-Man could someday end up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The webslinger has been forced to live outside the Avengers bubble the last few years thanks to the fact that Sony owns the rights to the character, but reports have suggested that barriers may be coming down in the near future.
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.
When will Marvel let others see this footage? It has played the two major Comic-Con events now, and is ready to be shown. Avengers: Age of Ultron doesn’t NEED marketing. People know it’s coming, and it’s going to be humongous. So let the fans see it, Marvel.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is adding three more superheroes to its lineup, adding up to nine Avengers for 2015. One notable Avenger from the comics that hasn’t been announced for the movie is Black Panther, but Marvel may have something up its sleeve for the ruler of Wakanda next year.
Marvel made a splash when they announced their next big crossover event: Secret Wars. Named after the original 1980s miniseries, the 2015 version is described as “overwhelmingly huge” and one of the biggest things Marvel has ever done. But will it have ramifications on the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
