Latino Review's El Mayimbe is reporting Marvel will in fact be at San Diego Comic-Con, with at least Captain America: The Winter Soldier, if not more. Disney wouldn't confirm but this was a big question with the D23 Expo also on the horizon.

James McAvoy spoke to Empire about being fitted for X-Men Days of Future Past, and that whole report about Alan Cumming being in the film.

Hey U Guys spoke to Ryan Reynolds about the Deadpool movie (via CBM):

It's up to the studio. The studio I think is reluctant to pull the trigger on such a hard rated-R script. Then the guys who wrote it, and the producers, won't make it unless it's that hard and, you know, raunchy.

The Playlist linked two video interviews where Terrence Howard discussed the Iron Man 2 recasting controversy. Here's a quick quote but head there to see both videos and many more details:

[I was paid] about $4.5m [for the first film]. The second time, [the studio] said 'We think the movie will be successful with or without you. So, instead of the $8m that we said we were gonna pay you, we're going to let you come back for a million dollars.' We did a three-picture deal already, [but] I forgot, I didn't know it wasn't a mutually binding contract; it was only beneficial for them and they could bring me back or not. They can honor it or not.
