The show is set in a world where you can pick up domestic robots (known as 'Synths') at your local shopping centre, and promises to delve into issues of technology-dependance as well as some scary robot stuff.

Among the cast are former Merlin star Colin Morgan, Oscar-winner William HurtFresh Meat's Gemma Chan, and Katherine Parkinson of The It Crowd

New trailer for sci-fi drama series Humans

28 May 2015 1:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new trailer has arrived online for AMC and Channel 4’s upcoming sci-fi drama series Humans, which is written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (Spooks, Spooks: The Greater Good) and based on the Swedish TV series Real Humans. Check it out below…

Humans, a bold new eight-part drama series from AMC, Channel 4 and Kudos, is set in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ – a highly-developed robotic servant eerily similar to its live counterpart.

Humans is set to premiere this summer and features a cast that includes William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Colin Morgan, Rebecca Front, Neil Maskell and Gemma Chan.

Frank Grillo talks Crossbones in Captain America: Civil War

28 May 2015 12:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When he was first spotted in his full Crossbones outfit on the set of Captain America: Civil War, the Twitter-verse lost their minds with the new design. Some people liked it, some people loved it and there was those (of course) who weren’t keen.

“It’s funny because people really responded to it – it went viral, trended [like crazy], so I’ve been getting phone calls.” Grillo told radio station 93.3 Wmmr. “Crossbones is a violent, violent villain in this series, and I finally feel I’ve been understood now. I feel complete; [people] get me.”

The actor also added that he’s been having a blast on the set of Captain America: Civil War, also tweeting that he’s not done just yet. “[These movies] film for months and months and there’s a lot of characters, so It’s great fun.” he said. “And everybody down here gets along real well.

Humans First Look: AMC Drama Offers Eerie Take on Androids Among Us

22 May 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

People, did Battlestar Galactica teach us nothing?!

Apparently not, because the just-released trailer for AMC’s upcoming sci-fi series Humans gives us a glimpse at a parallel universe where “Synths” — highly developed, artificially intelligent servants — are every family’s go-to accessory.

The eight-part drama bows Sunday, June 28, at 9/8c, and stars William Hurt (Damages) as George Millican, a widower who becomes like a father to his obsolete synth Odi, and Katherine Parkinson (The Honourable Woman) as a working wife and mother whose “pliant” Synth acts »

New Captain America: Civil War Set Photos Reveal Paul Rudd, Robert Downey Jr.

22 May 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is currently filming in Atlanta, and it’s pretty much a free-for-all as far as set photos go. The sequence that’s underway began with Chris Evans’ Cap battling Frank Grillo’s Crossbones, but as the production has worn on, more and more actors have been showing up to set. Today’s new batch includes Paul Rudd (in his non-Ant-Man costume), Elizabeth Olsen (in her non-Avengers Scarlet Witch costume), and Anthony Mackie’s Falcon. Additionally, an official set photo was unveiled by Jeremy Renner whose Hawkeye gets in on the action, and the photo reveals the production logo for the highly anticipated Avengers movie Captain America sequel. So, if you feel so inclined, take a look at the latest batch of set photos from Captain America: Civil War below. The film opens in theaters on May 6, 2016 and also stars Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, »

Scarlet Witch, Iron Man And A Regular Sized Ant-Man Feature In Latest Set Photos For Captain America: Civil War

21 May 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Another day, another slew of behind-the-scenes photos to pick through. With yesterday serving up a barrage of stills for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, today sees the pendulum swing back in Marvel’s favor and, specifically, Captain America: Civil War. We’ve already see the First Avenger engage in fisticuffs with Frank Grillo’s Crossbones, but this latest selection turns the attention to some of the film’s supporting characters: Robert Downey Jr., Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch.

It appears as though the production is still located in an African marketplace, which will presumably stand in for an area near – or indeed within – Black Panther’s Wakanda. Reports suggest it is here that a global incident forces the world’s elite into action over the superheroes, before rolling out a divisive registration act that essentially seeds the titular battle, headed up on each »

Robert Downey Jr. and Paul Rudd visit Captain America: Civil War as Black Widow joins the action in new set photos

21 May 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There have been more set photos from Captain America: Civil War than there are characters joining the movie at this point! We’ve seen Cap, Falcon and Crossbones all in action over the last week and yesterday we got our first look at Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch joining the fray. Today we have Black Widow in action again, but also a couple of set visits from the movie’s other McU stars as Robert Downey Jr. and Paul Rudd get set to feature in the film as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Scott Lang/Ant-Man respectively. There’s also some more of Cap and Crossbones going at it, Anthony and Joe Russo and Chris Evans and Elizabeth Olsen having a right ol’ chuckle.

As production roles on for Captain America: Civil War, another new batch of set photos leaks onto the Internet. We’ve already seen a shot of Frank Grillo reprising his role as Crossbones in previous set photos, and now we’ve got him taking on the duo of Captain America (Chris Evans – or at least, his stunt double) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).

Check out the photos below from Just Jared:

Black Panther Hunting The Winter Soldier In Captain America: Civil War?

19 May 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s no secret that Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther will make his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in next year’s Captain America: Civil War, but now Heroic Hollywood is reporting one possible reason that he could be venturing outside of Wakanda and encountering the Avengers. According to the site, T’Challa will start off Civil War on the hunt for none other than The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), the brainwashed assassin who used to be Captain America’s best friend Bucky Barnes.

Why would the Panther have his claws out for Bucky? That’s still unclear, though many of Heroic Hollywood’s readers suggested that one of The Winter Solider’s many, many kills carried out at the bequest of Hydra could have been against someone very close to the Black Panther – perhaps even his father, T’Chaka.

Now, Age of Ultron told us that Cap »

New Set Photos For Captain America: Civil War Feature The First Avenger And Frank Grillo’s Crossbones

19 May 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Such is the scale of Marvel’s standalone films now that it’s almost inevitable that each feature will attract significant attention during production, and it’s no different for Joe and Anthony Russo’s much-anticipated Captain America: Civil War. Late last week, we were given our first look at Frank Grillo as the menacing and physically robust Crossbones, and a slew of new set photos showcase the villain going toe-to-toe with Chris Evans’ First Avenger.

Much like those from a few days ago, Anthony Mackie’s Falcon can also be glimpsed amongst the action, which sees the friends engage with Crossbones and his squad of goons in what appears to be an African marketplace. Could this potentially seed the introduction of one Black Panther?

Essentially acting as Avengers 2.5, there’s a lot riding on Civil War as Marvel shifts gears into Phase Three. With an »

Spoilers: Who’s dead in Captain America: Civil War?

19 May 2015 12:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – there be spoilers round these parts…

Last week, we had some set photos from Captain America: Civil War which saw Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) attending a funeral. At the time, we wrote that it would be no big surprise who it would be, but now we officially know.

The below photo was taken by an extra, who stole the prop from the set and posted it to Tumblr. While it might not be real, Marvel Studios did ask the poster to take it down.

Check it out below:

As we said, no real surprises here.

Watch an alternative opening to Captain America: The Winter Soldier

18 May 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On your left!

With Captain America: Civil War currently filming (see all the latest news here) and thanks to Film Sketchr (via ComicBook), we have an animated look at the alternative opening to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Rather than begin with Cap running past Anthony Mackie’s Falcon, we have Rogers having a nightmare about fighting in World War II alongside Bucky and the rest of the Howling Commandos. He then wakes up to find that Dum Dum Dugan has sadly passed away.

Check out the video below:

Captain America: Civil War Set Photos Reveal Villain Crossbones

15 May 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With an insanely stacked ensemble lined up, it’s going to be interesting to see just how satisfying Captain America: Civil War can be from a character standpoint. No doubt Marvel Studios and directors Joe and Anthony Russo are up for the challenge, and on the villain front, the sequel is poised to have a deep connection to The Winter Soldier in a big way: Frank Grillo reprises his role of Brock Rumlow in his altered form as the villain Crossbones. The character is likely a relatively minor part of Civil War, but our first look at Grillo’s costume has arrived by way of a photo snapped on the Atlanta set. It’s almost like a poor man’s Iron Man suit, which could factor into Robert Downey Jr.’s co-starring presence in the pic. A few other set photos have also surfaced, including what looks to be a Wakanda set somewhere in Atlanta. »

Crossbones Revealed On Set Of Captain America: Civil War

15 May 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

With production underway on Captain America: Civil War, some action-packed shots of the First Avenger (Chris Evans) and his wingman Falcon (Anthony Mackie) are leaking out onto the web, revealing slightly new costumes for both as the pair make their way through an African marketplace. Could this be the setting of that international incident responsible for dividing the Avengers over the issue of government oversight and accountability? It looks like something is about to go down, because Crossbones (Frank Grillo) is on scene, looking awesomely menacing in his new armor.

Also included are shots from the funeral scene, believed to be for Captain America’s WWII girlfriend Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), who was last seen as a very elderly woman in The Winter Soldier. We already knew that the Cap and Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp) would be in attendance, but now it seems that Natasha Romanoff/Black »

Will Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk Smash His Way Into Captain America: Civil War?

15 May 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Long before the casting got underway for Captain America: Civil War, long-time Marvel fans knew the threequel would be monumental in just about every category. Then, the studio began filling up the roles thick and fast, with the likes of Martin Freeman, Emily VanCamp and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch all swooping in to join the ensemble. Fast forward to now and it seems as though directors Joe and Anthony Russo ought to reserve a Hulk-sized seat for a special someone.

That’s according to Mark Ruffalo, who took to Twitter to post the following ambiguous Tweet, leading many to believe that his Hulk will leap back into action once more for the Russo brothers’ feature.

The Marvel family gets just a little bit bigger. http://t.co/0PnXdLhGTP@captainamerica#CivilWar
