Bruce Banner Age of Ultron

Although it’s billed as a Captain America movie, Civil War at this point has a cast big enough to rival any Avengers team-up. Still, not every character in the MCU made it in, and one name that was conspicuously absent was Mark Ruffalo. Or so we thought. A recent post by Ruffalo suggests the Hulk may be joining his Avengers teammates for Captain America: Civil War after all.

Spider-Man header

It seems Marvel and Sony have found their new Spider-Man. Maybe. A new rumor has surfaced that he’ll be played by Asa Butterfield, the 18-year-old British actor who starred in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, and Ender’s Game. Butterfield was reportedly Sony’s top choice among a short list of others who were up for the role. According to Latino Review, the actor is in final negotiations and once the contracts are signed, an official announcement will be made.

The new, Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man is likely to first appear in Captain America: Civil War, which is currently shooting. That’ll then be followed by a solo film in 2017. Drew Goddard was rumored to be directing that film, but was not part of a recent short list. Read more about Asa Butterfield Spiderman below. Read More »
