Even though we’re getting a slew of characters from the Marvel cinematic universe in Captain America: Civil War, it’s important to remember that this is still a Captain America movie. And the last time we were in the hero’s own franchise, he was just getting ready to track down his best friend turned brainwashed villain Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. The Winter Soldier.
The credits scene that followed The Avengers: Age of Ultron showed us Cap (Chris Evans) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) finding a captured Bucky (Sebastian Stan) with his arm in a vice, trying to figure out what the next move is. And despite a large focus on the clash of superheroes coming in Civil War, the movie is also about continuing Cap’s attempt to revive the friendship he once had with Bucky, trying to bring the Hydra assassin back into the world where he created so much chaos, albeit unknowingly.
While visiting the set of Captain America: Civil War (check out my report on what we saw filmed over here), we sat down with Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan for a chat about where we find these two characters in Civil War and just how integral their relationship is to the story. Plus, Evans talks about how this movie really pushes him to places he’s never had to deal with before. Check out the Captain America Civil War interview after the jump. 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 »

Captain America: Civil War brings back what feels like every MCU character we’ve ever met (save Thor and Hulk, who’ll be off on their own buddy adventure next fall). But it also introduces a bunch of new ones, some of whom are more mysterious than others. One that’s been a big fat question mark up to this point is the government agent played by Martin Freeman. We’ve already seen him in the trailers, but it’s only now that we finally have confirmation on whom he’s playing. As it turns out, one of those fan theories was very much on the money.
Elsewhere, we’ve also got new looks at Frank Grillo‘s Brock Rumlow in full Crossbones gear, and Elizabeth Olsen‘s Scarlet Witch in action amid what looks like some serious destruction. There’s also another photo of Chris Evans‘ Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.‘s Iron Man staring intensely at each other, in case you need more fanfic fodder. See photos of the Civil War Martin Freeman character and more below. Read More »
It was another big weekend at the box office for Deadpool as the R-rated comic book mercenary took the top spot by adding another $55 million to its fattening wallet. In addition, the film added another $85 million overseas, bringing the worldwide total to nearly $492 million in just two weeks. And analysts believe these numbers put the movie on track to becoming the highest grossing R-rated movie in history, potentially surpassing The Passion of the Christ‘s domestic record and The Matrix Reloaded‘s worldwide numbers.
Over the weekend, an unlikely ally dished out some congratulations to Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and the film’s surprising success with Captain America himself, Chris Evans, taking to Twitter with some kind words. Reynolds responded in kind, but Robert Downey Jr. noticed their exchange and he has some concerns. Find out what unfolded on Twitter below. Read More »

The Super Bowl has its charms, but with all due respect to the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos, it’s got nothing on the epic showdown coming in Captain America: Civil War. The movie pits Avengers teammates Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) against each other in a battle that threatens to tear apart the MCU’s entire population of superheroes — including new additions like Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland).
A new Super Bowl spot digs a little deeper into the superhero-vs.-superhero feud, teasing some of the major action and drama to come. Watch the Captain America: Civil War Super Bowl spot after the jump. Read More »
It’s no secret that Spider-Man will be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time with Captain America: Civil War. However, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the webcrawler’s appearance in the movie. Even though we know that this will be a teenage version of Peter Parker played by Tom Holland, we don’t know how long he’ll appear in the movie, what his suit will look like, or anything like that. But a new rumor may have given us one detail that we didn’t know previously: how the Avengers recruit Spider-Man in Captain America Civil War.
Find out details after the jump, but beware of spoilers from here on out. Read More »
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.

If you keep up with this site regularly, then you probably already know that next year is a big one for Captain America. The third film in the Marvel superhero’s film franchise is Captain America: Civil War, and in it we’ll see The Avengers fighting against each other. But it’s also an important year for Cap for another reason, because it’s his 75th anniversary.
Captain America was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby back in 1941, and for the superhero’s milestone anniversary next year, ABC is airing a one-hour special that will explore the 75-year history of the character from the pages to the big screen. And if that doesn’t sound appealing enough, apparently there will be some kind of exclusive announcement from Marvel Comics during the airing of the special. Find out when you can watch below!
