Two high-profile actors are looking to board a promising new thriller. We just mentioned The Girl on the Train earlier today when talking about the Liam Neeson movie The Commuter — Girl is based on the novel of the same name by Paula Hawkins, and follows a woman whose problems haunt her after she is pulled into a mystery involving a couple that she imagines to enjoy the perfect marriage.
Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson and Haley Bennett are already set to play three of the lead characters, and now Chris Evans and Jared Leto are in early talks for the film. Read More »
Thanks to a combination previously reported rumors, footage screened during a panel at D23 last month, and some promo artwork, we have a pretty good idea of where each of The Avengers will land in picking sides for Captain America: Civil War. However, there may be one hero who isn’t so easy to pin down.
Elizabeth Olsen plays one of the newer members of the superhero assembly, Scarlet Witch. Taking a prominent role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, she’s the result of experiments conducted by Hydra, giving her mind-controlling, mystical superpowers. And according to the actress, even though Scarlet Witch is adjusting after the events of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, she’s a bit of a “wild card” when it comes to Captain America: Civil War.

One of the biggest story arcs to hit Marvel Comics was Civil War, an event that had an impact on the entire Marvel universe from 2006-2007. And that’s why Marvel Studios making Captain America: Civil War is such a big deal to fans of the cinematic universe.
However, it seems that some haven’t figured out, or maybe just haven’t heard, that the movie will not be taking the primary catalyst for the conflict that arises between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) from the comic books and bringing it to the big screen.
The Civil War comic book conflict comes when superheroes are divided by something called the Superhero Registration Act, forcing any superhero to reveal their identities to the public and be put into a database for all to see. But the Captain America Civil War superhero registration plot element isn’t being used. So what’s the story? Read More »
Last year there were some rumblings that Chris Evans might be stepping away from acting, including his role as Captain America for Marvel Studios after he completed the final films in his current contract, the last being The Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 in 2019. The actor wanted to focus more on directing, but he eventually pulled back on thoughts of retirement and wasn’t necessarily eager to leave Captain America behind.
Now it sounds like his tune has changed entirely as a new interview has Evans flat out saying, “Listen, if Marvel wants me they got me.” Chris Evans not leaving Captain America certainly shakes up some theories fans have had about his passing the shield, but it’s definitely good news. Read More »
Production on Captain America: Civil War just wrapped over the weekend, and while some footage from the film was recently shown at D23 Expo, I wouldn’t count on the first official trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving until later this year, maybe with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In the meantime, there have been a lot of rumors floating around, including word on which superheroes align themselves with Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) when they end up at odds. The aforementioned footage from D23 essentially confirmed those rumors, but in case you needed more substantial evidence, some Captain America Civil War promo art has surfaced showing each of the teams, but beware of spoilers below.

Now that Phase Two is complete, fans of the Marvel cinematic universe have their eyes set on Phase Three, which kicks off with Captain America: Civil War next March. And this particular sequel is even more exciting than most, because our favorite superheroes will be fighting each other this time.

But a new rumor has pinpointed where our heroes’ loyalties lie, including Spider-Man.
