Captain America The Winter Soldier - Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers

We don’t know plans for the Captain America 3 ending, and frankly wouldn’t say if we did. The film is still two years away and hasn’t started production yet. With The Winter Soldier coming to Blu-ray, however, the Russo Brothers just happen to be talking about the film. Some of the biggest questions they’re fielding surround the fate of Chris Evans‘ character. The last film gave him two formidable characters to whom he might pass the Captain America shield: Sebastian Stan‘s Bucky and Anthony Mackie‘s Falcon. With Evans’ Marvel contract running out soon, that pass seems like a viable option.

It becomes even more of a viable option when you look at Marvel’s first threequel, Iron Man 3, which wrapped up Tony Stark’s story in a nice bow with a fourth film nowhere to be seen. Could Chris Evans’ Captain America story be ending on May 6, 2016 with a new hero continuing the story? Yes and no, say the directors. Read More »

No Jokes in DC Movies

Years back, there was a real divide between DC and Marvel. DC was the stoic old guard, Marvel the young upstart. Despite the fact that the ’60s saw some incredibly wacky characters grace the pages of DC comics, the conception amongst comics fans, especially when modern comics fandom came of age in the ’80s and ’90s, was still that DC was the “serious” house and Marvel the playground.

While it’s not a hard-and-fast rule, that characterization has been carried forward into the films produced by DC and Warner Bros., and those from Marvel Studios. Inspired by Christopher Nolan’s films (which were inspired by the wave of ’80s comics that included Frank Miller’s vision of Batman), DC’s films are monochromatic and relatively grim. Zack Snyder isn’t the guy one turns to for “fun.” Marvel’s movies are colorful and unabashedly fun.

Now a report says there’s an actual “no jokes in DC movies” mandate at Warner Bros., which could enforce the differences between DC and Marvel movies in a set manner. (Update: While two sources support the “no jokes” argument, Seth Rogen says otherwise.)

avengers age of ultron images

If we had any complaint about the first Avengers, it was that there wasn’t nearly enough of Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk or Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye. Fortunately, Kevin Feige has already promised to remedy that lack in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the latest batch of images indicate that he plans to deliver.

Hulk and Hawkeye figure prominently in these new stills, along with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and the guy who bosses them all around. No, not Nick Fury. Director Joss Whedon.

Take a peek at the new Avengers Age of Ultron images, and read Whedon’s comments on Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor, after the jump.

Ultimate Spider-Man Web Warriors (2)

Between Tobey Maguire‘s reign as our friendly big-screen Spider-Man and Andrew Garfield‘s, there was a brief period when Donald Glover was pushing for the job. That never came to be, of course, but now he’s finally getting his chance to play the webslinger all the same. The catch: it’s in a cartoon, not a live-action big-budget movie franchise.

Glover is set to voice Miles Morales in an upcoming episode of Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors, which has Peter Parker (voiced by Drake Bell) passing through different parallel universes. Watch a clip featuring the Donald Glover Spider-Man after the jump.

Marvel Netflix shows

The Netflix Daredevil TV series is shooting now, but we still know relatively little about it, and we know almost nothing about the three shows that will follow (featuring Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist) much less how they’ll all come together in The Defenders. But now Netflix chief Ted Sarandos has said a few things about his company’s upcoming Marvel slate, and one comment in particular sticks out: that the series “will not be afraid to go darker” than Marvel’s films.  Read More »

Unused Gamora and Nebula Character Designs

Earlier this month, we showed you some Guardians of the Galaxy concept art which revealed Star-Lord’s comic book origins, as well as very different looking concept designs for Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, Drax and Star-Lord. Now concept artist Andy Park shares his early designs for Zoe Saldana‘s Gamora and Karen Gillan‘s Nebula from James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy, which look very different than what we saw in the final film. Hit the jump to see Park’s unused Gamora and Nebula character designs.

Jack Huston in Parade's End

Back in July, it was widely reported that Joaquin Phoenix was in talks for the lead role in Marvel’s Doctor Strange. However, nothing’s come of those talks since then, and that means it’s time for another round of Doctor Strange casting rumors.

The latest one is that Jack Huston is now in the running for the role. The Boardwalk Empire star isn’t as famous as some of the other folks who’ve been linked to the part in the past, but that may be exactly why he makes sense. Hit the jump for more on the Jack Huston Doctor Strange rumor.
