Over a year ago, when asked about starring in more movie Marvel films, Evans said, “If Marvel wants me they got me,” but it’s worth noting Marvel President Kevin Feige has teased these upcoming Avengers films as a new beginning of sorts.

The Expendables franchise is in even more trouble following Sylvester Stallone‘s disappointing departure from the action film series last week.
Much of the passion for this throwback action franchise comes from star and producer Sylvester Stallone, who rounded up a combination of his old action movie friends and some of the newer meatheads on the block for an assembly of mercenaries who shoot big guns, create big explosions and always take down the bad guy. Now that he’s gone, some of the franchise’s key players don’t have much of interest in returning, like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Read More »

Recently the actor reiterated how much he loves playing 007, despite previous famous remarks indicating that he’d rather slash his wrists than consider starring in another James Bond movie while on the press tour for Spectre.

That seems to be Michael Keaton‘s career trajectory at least, potentially following up his villainous turn as Vulture in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming with a role as the villain in Tim Burton‘s live-action remake of Disney’s Dumbo.
