When Marvel released the full cast list for Captain America: Civil War back in May, many fans were surprised to learn that Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd's Scott Lang, was coming aboard. The announcement made much more sense just a few months later when Ant-Man hit theaters, after Scott Lang had a confrontation with The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) at the new Avengers facility, along with the end credits sequence when it was hinted Falcon and Captain America would call upon Scott to help them free The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). While it may be quite some time before we see a full trailer for Captain America: Civil War, Comic Book Movie has uncovered leaked promo artwork, which reveals Ant-Man's new costume. We also get a look at the new War Machine armor and a fresh look at Black Panther.
Both the Ant-Man helmet and suit are given an upgrade in this promo artwork, »
Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman, known for her experimental films that closely examined women’s lives, has died in Paris. She was 65.
The date and cause are not yet known, according to the New York Times. Her parents were Polish Holocaust survivors, and her latest film, “No Home Movie,” is based on conversations between the filmmaker and her late mother. The film screened at Locarno and will show at the New York Film Festival.
Akerman was born in Brussels and was inspired to make films after seeing Jean-Luc Godard’s “Pierrot le Fou” as a teenager. She made her most well-known work in 1975 when she was just 25: The three-hour long “Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles” follows a housewife in real time and builds to a dramatic ending. It has been called one of the first and greatest feminist films.

The Martian is the film that Interstellar should have been. A rousing, surprisingly funny, and touching space adventure, Ridley Scott has delivered his best film since Gladiator. Matt Damon stars as Mark Watney, a botanist on the Ares mission to explore the surface of Mars. Caught in a sudden storm, the mission commander (Jessica Chastain), gives the order to evacuate. The astronauts lose Watney when he is hit by the communications array and covered in debris. His bio-signs dark, they assume he is dead, and rocket back to the orbital ship. Heartbroken and with the mission a failure, they begin the long journey back to Earth.
Watney regains consciousness, terribly injured, and abandoned. Pure luck kept his space suit from decompressing. What follows next is stomach churning self surgery. Then a cold realization as to the dire nature of his situation. It will take years for a rescue mission to reach him. »
With its rather large roster of characters, many worry that Captain America: Civil War will make the titular character a secondary player in his own movie. Despite making claims about this not being the case already, Kevin Feige has reiterated that Captain America: Civil War is a Captain America movie.
“It is very much Cap’s story,” Feige told guests at an Avengers: Age of Ultron home entertainment release party. “It’s very much a sequel to The Winter Soldier. As that conflict builds, it is represented as a conflict between Cap and Tony.”
“There’s a lot of characters in The Winter Soldier, but it still felt like a very singular and relatively simple thrill ride,” he adds. “Cap, in Civil War, follows very much that same way. That something that we pride ourselves on. Our screenwriters — Chris Markus and Stephen McFeely — are excellent at giving each character just enough. »

Back in February, Marvel finally made the announcement fans have been waiting years to hear, that Spider-Man is finally joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Under the terms of this deal, the new Spidey will first appear in a Marvel movie, confirmed to be Captain America: Civil War, before Marvel's Kevin Feige Sony's Amy Pascal team up to produce a Spider-Man reboot through Sony Pictures, set for release on July 28, 2017. It's been long believed that the new Spidey, Tom Holland, will only have a cameo in Captain America: Civil War, but Kevin Feige revealed during a Q&A session (via IGN) that the studio has much greater plans in store for the web slinger.
"Making that agreement ... was great, and was really amazing, and on a personal level making these movies, it means a lot because I think we can do great things with Spider-Man. I think Spider-Man can serve great »
This coming spring, Marvel will be asking us to choose a side as Phase Three of the McU kicks off with a bang with Captain America: Civil War, and taking part in a Q&A at the Edmonton Comic Expo, comic book legend Stan Lee has revealed whether his allegiance lies with Captain America or Iron Man.
“Whatever side Captain America was on, because he’s the best, pure-hearted person in the whole world,” said Lee (via Cbr). “By the way, he’s a great actor, too, the guy who plays Captain America does a beautiful job — Chris Evans. I say that because he likes me, and anyone who likes me is a great actor.”
Whose side are you on? Let us know in the comments below…

Poor Steve Rogers. Ever since he joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s been speculation about when Captain America is going to shuffle of this mortal coil and pass on the shield to his successor.
Naturally, this has intensified now that both The Winter Soldier and Falcon are part of the McU and Chris Evans is nearing the end of his contract with Marvel Studios, and both Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie have been discussing whether they’d like to see their characters taking on the mantle of the Sentinel of Liberty.
“Myself,” Stan told the Salt Lake Tribune when asked who should take over from Evans. “I’ll say this: They sure like to dangle a cheese in front of my nose a lot. They’re like ‘Oh yeah, that’s where you pick up the shield,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ve heard that one before. There it is again. »

During an appearance at the Salt Lake Comic Con, Captain America star Chris Evans has been speaking about the rift between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) that ultimately leads to the titular Civil War in next year’s Phase Three-launching Captain America: Civil War.
The film will see the comic book’s Superhero Registration Act replaced by the Accords, government measures to control heroes and hold them accountable for their actions, with Cap opposing the measures and Iron Man in support of them.
“Tony actually thinks we should be signing these accords and reporting to somebody and Cap, who’s always been a company man and has always been a soldier, actually doesn’t trust anymore,” states Evans. “Given what happened in Cap 2, I think he kind of feels the safest hands are his own. »

Over the past week or so we’ve heard from both Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier) about reprising their Marvel roles for the upcoming Phase Three-launching Captain America: Civil War, and now Paul Bettany has been speaking about returning as The Vision.
“We all had a bit more fun. You know, there were more improvised jokes between me and Robert Downey Jr., and me and Chris Evans, and it was a really loose atmosphere on-set. It was one really loose set, it was great! They’re all a really nice bunch of boys and girls. They’re all happy to be there. They’re being terribly well-paid, so they should be happy to be there. And work’s really creative and fun, you know? I got to be born on camera [in Avengers: Age of Ultron], you know, that’s unlikely to ever happen again.”

Two decades later, we're still totally creeped out by "Seven."
The seven-deadly-sins-inspired serial killer thriller, which opened 20 years ago this week (on September 22, 1995), helped put director David Fincher on the map and marked a career milestone for stars Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Spacey. What's more, from its jittery opening credits to its grim shocker of an ending, "Seven" has become a template for how to make a dark, suspenseful crime drama.
Despite its many imitators, however, "Seven" maintains its secrets, from who almost starred in it to how it accomplished its unsettling effects to the softened ending that was almost tacked on. Here are some of those secrets. (Warning: Spoilers follow, though, c'mon, the movie's 20 years old.)

“[The] character had, in my opinion, an introduction in The Winter Soldier — I mean, it was just sort of like a preview of the guy, which we get so much more of in Civil War. And I’m grateful for that. But to see that response to that was awesome because it just made me think, “Wow, people really got behind the character,” and that’s what you’re hoping for, especially [laughs] given that I didn’t really have any lines to say or anything. Which probably made it for the better to be honest. »

James, one of four young Canadian actors selected for the Toronto Film Festival’s 2015 Tiff Rising Stars program, told Variety at a cocktail event held Sunday that he was offered the Owens role while he was filming “Selma.” (Joe Boyega was set to play Owens, but pulled out when he was cast in “Star Wars: Episode VII.”)
“When I first got the call from my manager asking if I’d ever heard of Jesse Owens, I recognized the name, looked him up and was blown away by his story,” James said.
“Race” is directed by Stephan Hopkins and written by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse. It also stars Jason Sudeikis, Jeremy Irons, William Hurt and Carice van Houten. A French-German-uk-Canadian coproduction, »

“I think it’s going to be the best [Marvel movie yet,” states Olsen. “For real. I am very excited to see it myself. I only worked on set for five weeks, so I wasn’t there for the majority of it. [Daniel Brühl] is an incredible actor and he’s playing the main villain in it and he’s incredible. It’s a movie about people as opposed to robots this time. So it’s darker and it’s allowed to be darker because it gets more in the mindset of humans rather than machines.”
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 »
