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.

While most of the buzz today is for the new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (the reaction to which has been divisive enough to spark another fight between fans), there’s still plenty of talk about the other big superhero battle coming in Captain America: Civil War following the debut of the first trailer last week.
To go along with the first public peek at footage from the Marvel movie, Entertainment Weekly had their own cover story this month for the superhero battle. We’ve already seen the photos, but now we get some details from directors Anthony and Joe Russo as well as the film’s star Chris Evans. While we know there will be plenty of action the Marvel Studios flick, they all put a lot of focus on the characters and the new dynamic that emerges due to this conflict. Read More »

Last week’s Captain America: Civil War trailer was our first good look at the movie, but it’s really just the first drop in what’s sure to be a flood of marketing material. Today, we have another new look at the Marvel superhero showdown, in the form of an Entertainment Weekly cover featuring Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), and the mysterious Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman, or a pile of pixels arranged to look like him). Check out the Civil War EW cover after the jump. Read More »

It’s no secret that Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man will first swing by next year’s Captain America: Civil War, getting caught up in the battle between Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans). But the question we haven’t really considered yet is who might swing by Tom Holland’s Spider-Man movie.
Now an interesting bit of speculation suggests that Captain America and Iron Man might return the favor to their young friend, popping up in the Spider-Man solo outing due out in 2017. More on the Captain America and Iron Man in Spider-Man rumor after the jump. Read More »

This is the week for counting your blessings, so here’s one more thing to give thanks for around the dinner table. Marvel Studios has debuted the very first trailer for Captain America: Civil War, starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Scarlett Johansson, and like half the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There’s even a new friend, Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
Live-action updates of animated films are the hot new thing right now. Most of them haven’t been particularly good, with the notable exception of Kenneth Branagh‘s lovely take on Cinderella. But one live-action update that’s evoked promise over the past few years is Warner Bros.’ Pinocchio, which Robert Downey Jr. has been attached to for years now. The film became all the more enticing when Paul Thomas Anderson (Inherent Vice) signed on to write a draft and possibly direct, but it looks like we won’t see Anderson’s take on the classic fairy tale after all.
Learn more about the project after the jump.

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 »
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.
