Russo Brothers Discuss Captain America: Civil War

We’re only a few short months away from Captain America: Civil War. The film made many of our most-anticipated lists for 2016, including Ethan‘s, Jacob‘s, and Angie‘s. It didn’t make mine, but that doesn’t mean I’m not looking forward to Joe and Anthony Russo‘s sequel to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Marvel is clearly confident in the duo, as they’ve selected them to helm two Avengers sequels following up their work on Civil War.

After the jump, the Russo Brothers discuss Captain America: Civil War, how they are reinventing Spider-Man, and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1.

Avengers Age of Ultron Full

Last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was a big, sprawling movie with a gigantic cast, and this year’s Captain America: Civil War doesn’t look much slimmer. But they may be small potatoes compared to Avengers: Infinity War. According to directors Joe and Anthony Russo, the two-part epic features a whopping 67 characters.

Of course, that doesn’t mean all 67 characters will be equally prominent in Avengers: Infinity War, and the directors indicate that it’ll be an opportunity for some of the “supporting Avengers” to come to the forefront. Like, perhaps, Black Widow — the Russos, apparently, are among the many, many fans clamoring for a Black Widow standalone movie. Read all the Russo brothers Avengers: Infinity War comments after the jump.  Read More »

Benicio Del Toro as The Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy

It was always a given that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would bring back its five core cast members (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel). But the status of the franchise’s supporting characters have been a little less certain. Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) are both confirmed to return; Ronan (Lee Pace), not so much. And what about the Collector? According to Benicio Del Toro, he won’t be back for the next installment, either.  Read More »

David Bowie Guardians of the Galaxy 2

This morning we woke up to the sad news that legendary musician and the definition of cool, David Bowie, had passed away after a battle with the dirty bastard that is cancer. All over social media, fans are lamenting his passing, and James Gunn did the same by offering up another reason, in addition to countless others, to be bummed that Bowie is no longer with us.

Following learning the tragic news, Gunn revealed that he and Marvel’s Kevin Feige were trying to lock down David Bowie to cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And despite his illness at the time, there was apparently hope that it would actually work out. Gunn also offers up his own touching tribute to a man who not only had a huge impact on rock, but also sci-fi and fantasy. Read More »

Spider-Man in Civil War

In case you didn’t pay attention to Superhero Bits yesterday, there’s a chance we might get a first look at the new Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War sometime next week. Over at Merchoid.com, some official Civil War merchandise debuted, and one of the items is a “premium Spider-Man hoodie.” But the site doesn’t have an image of it yet, and they say that they can’t reveal it until January 15th. Since the other hoodie at the site is a Captain America costume hoodie, we’re thinking the Spider-Man one could be the same.

As we wait to see whether or not we’ll get a sneak peek at the new Spider-Man in Civil War, directors Anthony & Joe Russo recently sat down for an interview ahead of their appearance at Wizard World New Orleans and talked about their approach to the wallcrawler, including how he’s different from the previous iterations. Find out what they had to say below. Read More »

Agents of SHIELD Season 3 opening

Although the Inhumans movie isn’t due in theaters for another three and a half years, Marvel seemed to be laying some early groundwork with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The Inhumans were introduced on the show at the end of last season and have continued to play a major part in the show this season. But according Clark Gregg, that doesn’t necessarily mean we can expect a crossover between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Inhumans movie.  Read More »
