Captain America: Civil War was a somber affair, and understandably so — the film rocked the very notion of the Avengers to its very core by pitting hero against hero and friend against friend. It was downright heartbreaking to see Steve and Tony come to blows despite their own best efforts to reach a common ground, and then to see the rest of the Avengers forced to pick sides.
But behind the scenes, it was a whole other story. With the film’s home video release just around the corner, Marvel Studios has released the Civil War blooper reel, and it’s silly, endearing stuff. Captain America may be going through some heavy stuff, but Chris Evans is enjoying the hell out of himself, and Sebastian Stan smiles more in these few minutes than Bucky probably has in the past 70 years. Scarlett Johansson‘s tough action hero schtick gets undermined by faulty equipment, and Robert Downey Jr. just can’t help getting in a snarky remark or two. Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Renner, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, and Martin Freeman all make appearances as well. Read More »
When you think of quality serial entertainment, it’s likely that Crackle is pretty far down on the list of quality content creators. Sure, the Sony-owned streaming site is home to the outstanding documentary series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld (which just debuted a new season earlier this summer), but they’ve only just recently started to dip their toe in narrative storytelling.
Last fall, Crackle debuted their first drama series The Art of More, and now the service is looking to make an even bigger splash with their second foray into the drama arena with StartUp. The new series follows The Hobbit leading man Martin Freeman as an FBI agent tracking the growth of a digital currency company founded by The OC star Adam Brody, Otmara Marrero (Graceland) and Edi Gathegi (X-Men: First Class). The only problem is they were forced to start the company with dirty money, and that doesn’t sit too well with the FBI.

Back when Sherlock first began in 2010, Martin Freeman most famous for playing Tim on the British Office and Benedict Cumberbatch was barely known outside the U.K. at all. But these days, of course, they’re both huge, huge stars. Freeman anchored Warner Bros.’ The Hobbit trilogy while Cumberbatch voiced the dragon Smaug, and both are now part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — Freeman as Everett Ross, who made his onscreen debut in Captain America: Civil War, and Cumberbatch as the title character of this fall’s Doctor Strange.
Even so, the pair have found time in their schedules to reunite for one more season of Sherlock. Shooting is now underway in the U.K., and a Sherlock season 4 first look photo has just hit the web. Check it out below. Read More »

Benedict Cumberbatch may have just wrapped production on Marvel’s Doctor Strange a few days ago, but he’s already started shooting Sherlock season 4. Call it keeping your nose to the grindstone. Call it having a supernatural ability to work with the bare minimum amount of sleep. In either case, Mr. Cumberbatch must have the same mutant gene as Dwayne Johnson. You know, the one that allows him to work tirelessly without crashing his car into a ditch or walking into closed doors.
Anyway, the real news here is not that Cumberbatch is secretly one of those kids from Beggars in Spain, but that production has officially begun on more episodes of Sherlock, which is good news for people who like nice things.

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 »
