While everyone is talking about the debut of The Mandalorian and the completely nonsensical change to the face-off between Greedo and Han Solo in Star Wars: A New Hope as it appears on Disney+, there are some Marvel Cinematic Universe goodies that have been surfacing from the streaming service’s debut. And they reveal some sneak peeks at the forthcoming Marvel Studios original shows coming to Disney+ in the coming years.
Part of the launch day programming for Disney+ includes a 12-minute mini-documentary called Expanding the Universe, which focuses on what Marvel Studios has in the works with shows like Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, WandaVision, and more. In fact, we’ve got Falcon and the Winter Soldier concept art showing off new looks for the characters from the Captain America franchise, as well as a glimpse at the uniform for the new character U.S. Agent.

Just this morning, we heard about what’s in store for Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier, on the upcoming Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Now we know who will be at the helm of the new series: Kari Skogland (The Walking Dead) has been hired to direct the six-episode show. She already has several major TV credits to her name, including another MCU show in the now-cancelled Netflix series The Punisher.
In addition to the news about The Falcon and The Winter Soldier director, a couple of cast members from Captain America: Civil War may be joining stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan in the cast. Plus, we finally have a release date for this show. Read on to get the details. Read More »
Fans who’ve found themselves invested in Captain America/Steve Rogers’ love life might have missed Emily VanCamp‘s Agent Sharon Carter amid all the chaos of Avengers: Infinity War. Now that film’s writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, have explained why she didn’t make the cut, and they’ve also elaborated on one of the movie’s biggest surprises: the return of a villain no one saw coming.
Plus, check out an Infinity War infographic that features the amount of screen time each hero received in Marvel’s latest blockbuster. But be warned: if you haven’t seen the film yet, there are spoilers for Infinity War below. 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 »
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.

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). Check out the Captain America: Civil War promo art after the jump! Read More »
The cast of Captain America: Civil War just keeps getting bigger. While the biggest addition to the third film in Captain America’s film franchise is undoubtedly Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark facing off against Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, there’s plenty of other familiar faces from the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe involved in the film. Now one more has entered — or re-entered — the fray as Emily VanCamp joins Captain America: Civil War, reprising her role from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Could this film finally give us the true identity of this S.H.I.E.L.D. agent? Read More »

As we continue to process the awesomeness that is the latest Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer, there’s even more to consider. The U.K. version of the trailer, which is composed mostly of the same footage, is cut differently and adds in one or two extra morsels. Most significant among these is Sharon Carter, aka Agent 13, played by Emily VanCamp. That’s the niece of Captain America’s former love, Peggy Carter, and her family ties should make for some awkward interactions. Check it out below. Read More »

Not all mainstream superhero flicks to change love interests between installments. Even the womanizing Tony Stark been loyal to Pepper through three films now, four if you count the upcoming Iron Man 3. But given the big time jump at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier simply couldn’t stick with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), no matter how delightful she was.
Over the past several months, we’ve watched as what felt like every moderately famous actress under 35 tried to attach herself to Winter Soldier female lead. Now, at long last, Marvel Studios has found their lucky lady in Emily VanCamp. The 26-year-old actress is best known for her TV work, having starred in Everwood, Brothers & Sisters, and, currently, Revenge. More details after the jump.
