Who Does Hawkeye Side with in 'Captain America: Civil War'?

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Captain America: Civil War was announced back in October, during Marvel's now-legendary press event, fans have wondered which superheroes will be siding with Captain America and which will align themselves with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Production is still happening in Atlanta, where Jeremy Renner was spotted wearing a hat which teases the side his character Hawkeye may be on. The hat features an embroidered logo that reads "Team Captain America," seemingly revealing where Hawkeye's allegiance truly lies.

Captain America: Civil War takes place after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo »

Jeremy Renner on Captain Amercia: Civil War and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers: Infinity War

28 July 2015 2:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a promotional interview with Screen Rant to promote this week’s release of his latest film Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Jeremy Renner has spoken briefly about Hawkeye’s role in the next Marvel movie Captain America: Civil War, as well as sharing a few thoughts on how the studio might proceed after Avengers: Infinity War closes out Phase Three.

“[Captain America: Civil War] is more active, a lot of fun stuff happening in that one,” said Renner. “I can’t speak too much for it. They’re still filming that sucker right now. But yeah, there’s a lot of stuff happening in that one physically for me anyway. Then who knows in the future? I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Humans, Ep 1.05: “Episode Five” begins bringing characters together

26 July 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Colin Morgan

Humans, Season One, “Episode Five”

Written by Emily Ballou

Directed by Lewis Arnold

Airs Sundays at 9 pm (Et) on AMC

Since the beginning of the season, Leo has been single-minded in his search for Mia, a search that finally brought him and Max in contact with Mattie last week. Similarly, Mattie’s initial anger towards synths and their ability to replace humans has been replaced with a genuine level of curiosity and care for Anita, particularly after getting a glimpse of Mia. This week’s episode formally cements Mattie’s turn to an ally of Leo and Anita/Mia, in a strong episode that benefits greatly from bringing some characters together and adding further dimensions to others.

The combination of Niska and Dr. Millican is one that is ripe with possibility, some of which already gets explored in this week’s episode. Despite his proclaimed aversion to synth consciousness, »

Humans: "You're a Synth... but you're not with the others"

26 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

One question still looming over Humans, even this late in the game, is; who is Karen Voss?

A thinking, feeling Synth - yet apparently not part of David Elster's original batch - Ruth Bradley's character has been this show's rogue element - and its biggest enigma - since her true nature was revealed in episode four.

Here, the whole truth is revealed - 'Karen' is a synthetic recreation of Elster's dead wife. Unable to come to terms with what he had created, Elster later took his own life - as his beloved Beatrice had done. Karen now seeks to end her own life, but - in a cruel and ironic twist - is prevented from doing so by Elster's programming.

(We also learn a little about the real Karen Voss - though it's a pity this brief and rather extraneous sub-plot is Pete Drummond's sole contribution this week. »

Humans star says there are more stories to tell in a second series

24 July 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

There's been no official word on a second series of Humans - but star Will Tudor thinks the show has the potential to run and run.

Tudor told Digital Spy that the writers behind the Channel 4 drama have plans that extend beyond the first 8-part series.

"I really hope it continues - as much as a viewer as someone who's in it," said the actor, who plays malfunctioning android Odi.

"It explores things that I've personally not seen on screen before, and it raises a lot of questions. In the first series, there were a couple of things where I thought, 'Ooh, what about that?' and 'What if that happened?'

"I think the writers have got a lot more they want to tell, that's all I'm going to say!"

Humans launched as Channel 4's best-rated drama in over 20 years, with Tudor admitting that he "knew »

Russo Brothers tease Spider-Man suit for Captain America: Civil War

24 July 2015 1:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In case you didn’t know, The Russo Brothers are on Twitter. You might not know this because they never tweet anything. However, the duo have been sending out some teasing photos from the set of Captain America: Civil War – and one of them could be our first look at the new Spider-Man suit.

Check out the tweet below:

Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) July 10, 2015

If this is the new Spider-Man suit, it looks a lot like the original Amazing Fantasy Spider-Man suit which was red and black as opposed to red and blue. We have heard teases that this Spider-Man suit will “blow people away”, could this be what they were referring to?

What do we think?

Composer Heitor Pereira Discusses The Music, Sounds And Rhythms For His Minions Score

20 July 2015 5:22 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Photo by Jim Ruymen/Upi

How does a composer create musical voices for a population of yellow creatures who speak their own language? If you’re Grammy Award-winning musician/composer/songwriter Heitor Pereira, it’s one groovy journey.

Playing in theaters now, Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.

But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he – alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob – ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.

The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain. »

Rudd Ant Hero Has Worst Marvel Cinematic Universe Domestic Debut to Date

20 July 2015 3:41 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

Marvel’s Kevin Feige discusses the story for Captain America: Civil War

20 July 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Ant-Man bringing the curtain down on Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, attention is now shifting towards the first Phase Three offering as Chris EvansSteve Rogers and Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark go head-to-head in Captain America: Civil War, and Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has been speaking to Zap2It about the “simple story” for the Captain America threequel.

“Civil War is a relatively simple story,” states Feige. [Avengers: Age of Ultron] had a lot going on. Civil War is a surprisingly grounded story about two characters that most audience members have come to know and like and admire finding themselves on different sides of a political argument, like the country does on many occasions, and how they both respond to that. That’s the story. So it’s actually a very, very simple story, and then how their personal relationships fit into that.”

Martin Freeman teases his Captain America: Civil War character

20 July 2015 3:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A slew of actors will be making their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in next year’s Captain America: Civil War, including The Hobbit and Sherlock actor Martin Freeman, whose exact role is still unknown.

Ever since Freeman was announced for the film, there has been a large amount of speculation regarding which character the actor will play. Some rumors had put him in the role of Edward Chase, the Prime Minister of England, but the actor cleared certain things up in an interview with BadTaste.it. 

When asked about his role, Freeman said, “He works for the American government. He works in conjunction with the superheroes, and certain agencies that help to tame the superheroes’ power, I suppose. So you’re not quite sure which side he’s on. It looks a little bit like he’s playing one game when actually he’s playing another. It’s the kind »

Humans: The lines between man and machine blur in episode 6

19 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Five episodes down and the motives of Edwin Hobb remained ambiguous, but this week's Humans starts to draw back the veil on Danny Webb's hitherto intimidating professor.

It seemed Hobb was working to obliterate David Elster's work, but episode six reveals that he has spared Fred (Sope Dirisu) and is less a villain, more another would-be pioneer - albeit a misguided one.

Hobb softens as the series draws parallels between him and other characters; most obviously George Millican, but also Leo, who - like Hobb - is part-man, part-machine.

In a dramatic shift, Fred changes from victim to antagonist as he responds violently to being held hostage - but this is far from the only role reversal that Humans offers up in episode six.

Joe Hawkins (Tom Goodman-Hill) was once a genial and sympathetic patriarch - now he's cast out and despised by his wife and children. Laura (Katherine Parkinson »

A bloody and bruised Tony Stark poses with fans on the set of Captain America: Civil War

16 July 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The set photos from Captain America: Civil War have been quiet over the last month or so, but a couple of new images sprang up today. A very battered looking Robert Downey Jr. posed with fans who visited the set of the movie, which you can check out below. Did the bruises come from the fists of Captain America? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.

Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States, with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) directing a cast that includes Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany »

Exclusive: Humans episode 6 clip feat. William Hurt

16 July 2015 3:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

See William Hurt and Emily Berrington talk human communication in this brand new clip from episode 6 of Channel 4's tremendous Humans...

Humans, currently airing on Sunday nights on Channel 4, is clever, gripping television. Eschewing explosive battles and robot armies (thus far at least), it takes a nuanced and emotional approach to the question of AI, bedding its sci-fi stories firmly in the real world to explore the fallout of artificial intelligence on real-life family, relationships and work.

If you're not yet watching, it’s now available online at All 4, and comes highly recommended by us and many others.

Thanks to strong performances, particularly from Gemma Chan and William Hurt, the Humans cast sells a drama that poses complex lines of political and philosophical questioning without ever making the viewer feel as if they’re subject to a lecture.  

To wit, here’s a brand new clip from the forthcoming episode six, »

Spider-Man meets The Punisher – tease for Captain America: Civil War?

16 July 2015 2:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As comic book fans will know, The Punisher made his debut in the Marvel world as a villain for the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, but has since become a popular anti-hero. We got the announcements recently that Tom Holland (The Impossible) would be our next Spider-Man for Captain America: Civil War and The Walking Dead‘s Jon Berthnal  would play The Punisher in the second season of Daredevil.

And now the two have met.

Holland posted the below image to his Instagram account. With Holland currently getting ready to start filming on Captain America: Civil War and Berthnal currently filming Daredevil, could this be a tease of things to come?

Had an amazing time hanging with this guy. Much love brother. #pilgrimage #brothers.

'Captain America: Civil War' Set Photos Show a Beat-Up Robert Downey Jr.

15 July 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Captain America: Civil War is continuing to shoot in Atlanta, where Marvel's Tony Stark and Steve Rogers are going to come to blows over the Superhero Registration Act. The latest set photos hint that Cap may have the upper hand. Star Robert Downey Jr. is seen wearing his signature Marvel Under Armour, and sporting a face that has been beaten and bloodied. Is Rogers the one responsible?

Like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will see two of DC Comics biggest superheroes battling in the streets of Metropolis, Captain America: Civil War will give us an epic brawl between Iron Man and Captain America. Though, we have yet to see this tussle even hinted at in any leaked set photos. Is this our first evidence of their clash? Or has Tony run into other unfortunate problems that have found him on the opposite end of a good ol' fashion butt kicking? »

It's looking good for a second series of Humans on Channel 4

15 July 2015 4:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's been a ratings hit for Channel 4 - and now it's been confirmed that a second series of Humans is "very much under consideration".

The channel's head of international drama told Broadcast that it's looking good for a renewal, though more episodes are yet to be officially greenlit.

"We've got a story that is told over a great many episodes and is very much designed to come back and return," said Simon Maxwell. "We'll be following those characters on a really epic journey."

Humans launched with a final audience of 6.1m in June, making it Channel 4's best-rated drama in more than 20 years.

The series is set in a parallel present where Synths - androids who appear almost uncannily human - are considered a common household appliance.

Based on a Swedish drama, the eight-parter examines the consequences of the Synths beginning to exceed their programming, developing sentience and a range of emotions. »

Humans episode 5 review: Engrossing TV that poses profound questions

12 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Episode five of Humans puts a halt on the action and takes time to answer some questions, while simultaneously posing a few philosophical conundrums in the process.

After last week's ultra creepy robot sex moves from family man Joe (Tom Goodman-­Hill) and his helper Anita (Gemma Chan), the fall­out takes an unexpected turn. His daughter (and general Synth ­snooper) Mattie discovers that Anita's "adult mode" has been activated and immediately blames her brother, Toby. When confronted by his mother, the young boy rather bravely takes responsibility.

Given our collective disappointment of Joe's actions, it slides further when his own son expresses his dismay and disgust at his father. While he doesn't quite redeem himself, Joe does come clean to his wife Laura (Katherine Parkinson) in a deeply affecting scene.

But any thoughts of redemption are quickly doused when he refers to Anita as a "machine" and as »
