After some early buzz this weekend indicated that Captain America: Civil War seems to deliver the goods when it comes to an enjoyable and outstanding comic book blockbuster, Marvel Studios is keeping the hype train going with a new clip from the movie.
Pushing the comic book sequel to the coveted young demographic watching the MTV Movie Awards, the Captain America Civil War clip features Captain America (Steve Rogers) and two of his new Avengers, Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), infiltrating some kind of facility. The trio seems to make a great team, cooperating and using each others abilities to their advantage.

Tom Hiddleston has called the role of Hank Williams one of the hardest jobs he’s ever done. The I Saw the Light star had to completely transform himself, physically and vocally, sometimes in the subtlest of ways, to play the iconic folk singer. All of that hard work led to a performance that’s more akin to embodiment than impersonation — a tough tightrope to walk for any actor starring in a biopic.
Below, read our Tom Hiddleston interview, in which he discusses playing Hank Williams, authenticity, and 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 »

We’ve known since last summer that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would not be making an appearance on Netflix’s Full House revival series Fuller House. The twins won’t even be making a cameo as the singular child Michelle Tanner, but the character’s absence is said to be explained by the fact that she’s now a fashion mogul in New York City. That’s a nice little nod to the Olsens’ real-life career, which has been cited as the reason for their not getting involved in the new series. Until now.
John Stamos recently appeared on The Howard Stern Show where conversation turned to Fuller House. The actor who plays Uncle Jesse revealed a more humble reason as to why they didn’t end up appearing on the show. Plus, he also reveals what could have been an interesting solution to their lack of involvement. Read More »
After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, the biopic I Saw the Light about country singer Hank Williams was supposed to be released Thanksgiving weekend. But back in October, the movie was pushed back to a spring 2016 release, with a crowded awards season and Tom Hiddleston‘s busy schedule cited as the primary reasons for the delay.
Now that the film is just a few months away, we finally have the first I Saw the Light trailer, showing that this is undoubtedly Tom Hiddleston’s Walk the Line, with pretty much the same beats and a praiseworthy leading performance. Read More »
There comes a time in every great actor’s life where they must star in a biopic. Awards potential aside, it’s just something you gotta do. Actor Tom Hiddleston‘s (Crimson Peak) performance as country singer Hank Williams initially seemed destined for accolades, but I Saw the Light getting delayed until 2016 makes that an unlikely future.
