The newest superhero in Captain America: Civil War is Black Panther, played by 42 and Get On Up star Chadwick Boseman. The comic book character is getting his own movie later on Marvel’s future slate, but his introduction happens in this sequel as a sort of middle ground between Captain America and Iron Man, even though he ultimately sides with the latter in this conflict.
However, Boseman isn’t exactly a superhero when we meet him in this movie, even though he’s a Black Panther, a title that has been passed down through his ancestors. Boseman is the leader of Wakanda, a politician and monarch, and with his own country’s safety potentially at risk from the kind of destruction we saw in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s easy to see why he’s drawn into this conflict.
In our interview with Chadwick Boseman from the set of Civil War, we talk about his role in this epic conflict, his Wakandan accent, and just how miserable and hot he is when he has to put on the Black Panther suit, which his fellow cast members agree is just the worst. Find out all of that and more in out Captain America Civil War interview with Chadwick Boseman. Read More »
Yesterday brought our report straight from the set of Captain America: Civil War when the film was in production in Atlanta, Georgia last June. Along with that came a batch of posters for all the characters on Team Cap, as well as an interview with stars Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan. But that was just the beginning of our Civil War coverage this week.
There are rumblings of a new trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving this week, but in the meantime, we’re running interviews from our set visit all week. Today we’ve got interviews with Robert Downey Jr., and some good stuff with Chadwick Boseman, a.k.a. Black Panther. But right now we’ve got a batch of new Captain America Civil War posters showcasing Team Iron Man, and one can’t help but notice they’re a man short when facing Team Cap. Read More »
On June 10th, 2015, in the sweltering heat of Atlanta, Georgia, I found myself on the set of Captain America: Civil War, the third installment in the patriotic superhero’s Marvel Studios franchise that began with Captain America: The First Avenger and continued with Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
In the middle of nowhere lies Pinewood Studios, and this is where we spent half the day conducting interviews with stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen and franchise newcomer Chadwick Boseman, not to mention writers Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, executive producer Nate Moore and directors Anthony & Joe Russo. All of those will be coming to you today and tomorrow, but first we want to talk about what we saw on set, because that’s what you’re going to see in theaters in May.
Outside on the studio lot, three massive green screen walls have been constructed to surround a set made to look like an airport tarmac. The only real objects on the set, besides the Marvel heroes who would be fighting shortly, is a fuel tank (that may end up exploding at some point) and some vehicles that say “Flughafen Leipzig-Halle,” which dictates that this is the Leipzig-Halle Airport in Schkeuditz, Germany. And this is where the Civil War begins. We are about the witness the beginning of the first fight between Team Captain America and Team Iron Man
After the jump, find out what we observed on the set of Captain America: Civil War, and how Marvel dealt with plenty of questions about Spider-Man entering the Marvel cinematic universe. All this and more can be found in our Captain America Civil War set report. And in case you haven’t realized it already, beware of spoilers after the jump! Read More »
If Gerard Butler screaming as a power-hungry god along with tons of crazy creatures flying around and destroying things doesn’t get you interested in Alex Proyas‘ action epic, then nothing will.

There’s a good chance it just might work. Watch the Gods of Egypt Super Bowl spot after the jump. Read More »

We’ve known for well over a year now that Captain America: Civil War would feature the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of Black Panther and that he would be played by Chadwick Boseman. However, we have only been able to speculate on how this character, a prince from the fictional African nation of Wakanda who has inherited the powers and abilities of his royal family, fits into the quickly escalating beef between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark.
Now, the details have been revealed! It turns out that Black Panther, a.k.a. T’Challa, is a neutral party with his own interests… and that his allegiance may shift between Team Iron Man and Team Captain America, depending on who will best help him achieve his goals.
Hit the jump for all of the necessary Black Panther Civil War details.

Last week’s Captain America: Civil War trailer was our first good look at the movie, but it’s really just the first drop in what’s sure to be a flood of marketing material. Today, we have another new look at the Marvel superhero showdown, in the form of an Entertainment Weekly cover featuring Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), and the mysterious Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman, or a pile of pixels arranged to look like him).

Alex Proyas doesn’t make as many movies as we’d like to see from him. The director of Dark City and Knowing is a selective filmmaker. By studio filmmaking standards, he’s an ambitious director. Knowing may not be everyone’s favorite movie, but it does end with the destruction of Earth and the lead character dying, not saving the world. Proyas’ new film, Gods of Egypt, may be his biggest one yet, based on the plot synopsis, but our first glimpse at the project doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. Then again, these are just character posters.
Check out the Gods of Egypt character posters after the jump.
