When Chris Evans was sought after and eventually won the role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avengers, some fans were a little bent out of shape about that because the actor had already played the Human Torch in 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four. To some, it just seemed like overkill to have the same actor play two different Marvel superheroes.
However, as we’ve seen, the Marvel cinematic universe is far removed from what 20th Century Fox did with Fantastic Four or what Sony Pictures did with Spider-Man. And in the end, Chris Evans has turned out to one of the best parts of the Marvel cinematic universe, and easily one of the favorite Avengers on the team. So it all worked out.
But now that the Marvel cinematic universe has been established, is there a chance that we could see actors playing two Marvel characters in that comic book world? Thor: The Dark World star Zachary Levi reveals that he has spoken to Kevin Feige about that very question, and the answer might surprise you. Read More »
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is currently shooting in Germany with one week of production left, and while Marvel Studios stayed home from San Diego Comic Con International 2015, they did show up to Disney’s fan convention D23 Expo 2015 with Captain America (Chris Evans, who got a standing ovation), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and perhaps most importantly, footage from the 2016 release.

Production is underway on Captain America: Civil War right now down in Atlanta, Georgia, and with a whole bunch of The Avengers (new and old) on the cast roster, it’s safe to say we can expect a pretty massive flick. And while the movie doesn’t arrive until May 6th, 2016, one of the cast members is wasting no time driving a wedge between our superheroes.
Jeremy Renner, who plays the skilled archer and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye), took to Twitter yesterday with a little welcome card that teases the coming battle between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).

Two new clips have arrived for Marvel’s summer movies, and each one has a revelation of sorts. One, from Avengers: Age of Ultron, shows the arrival of Vision, the new character played by Paul Bettany. As a bonus, it has narration of sorts from the actor, as he presented the clip during a TV interview appearance. The other, from Ant-Man, shows Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) breaking into a safe that contains a surprising set of objects.

Tony Stark might joke that he’s not the boss of the Avengers, but Robert Downey Jr. is certainly the leader. The actor was in classic form at the Avengers: Age of Ultron junket over the weekend and used his Twitter to document the whole thing. He took photos with almost all of his co-stars, joked about Captain America: Civil War, and basically just gave fans what they wanted – access to one of the most anticipated films of the year. Check out some of the awesome Robert Downey Jr Twitter photos below. Read More »
Marvel has finally revealed a character poster from Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s most mysterious character, Vision. Played by Paul Bettany, he’s created by Ultron using Tony Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S technology. What happens from there, we don’t really know. Marvel and Disney have kept the character incredibly well-concealed. Case in point, this poster comes several months after the other Avengers: Age of Ultron character posters were revealed. We saw more toys of the character than actual full body images, so this is pretty exciting.
Below, check out the Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision poster and read more about the character. Read More »
Marvel has been really shy about showing off Vision, the new Avengers: Age of Ultron team member played by Paul Bettany.

But now a new Entertainment Weekly cover gives up a full look at the guy, not in concept art form, but as he really appears in the movie. You can see a small version of Vision in Age of Ultron above; click through for a better look. Read More »
