New Set Pics from Captain America: The First Avenger, Plus Shield Details

28 December 2010 9:56 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Marvel Studios is renowned for its secrecy when it comes to its superhero movie adaptations, but its latest movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, has to be the most secretive production to date. A teaser trailer was played at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, but it only featured a brief glimpse of title star Chris Evans in the iconic costume and no bootleg copies of the teaser have ever surfaced online. Some intrepid photographers have managed to snap "spy pics" from the the various English sets from time to time, but the only official images previously released were revealed in an Entertainment Weekly cover story. Now, the Dutch magazine Veronica has run a feature story that includes several new images from the set.

New Set Pics From Captain America

28 December 2010 8:44 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Nothing too fantastic to croon about, but at least it’s more than just pieces of some plane or extras walking around on some set. You do get to see star Chris Evans chilling on set (between takes, we assume), Hayley Atwell looking all Kate Beckinsale-lite in her WWII uniform and hairdo, and director Joe Johnston doing what he’s supposed to be doing, which in this case is directing. Plus, a shot of some smoky room with some folks meeting or some such. Anyways, the scans are from Veronica Magazine, and brought to you courtesy of the Chris Evans Blog. “Captain America: The First Avenger” stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Toby Jones, and is directed by Joe Johnston. The Cap slings his shield July 22, 2011. click on the pics to enlarge »

Who Will Direct Iron Man 3?

21 December 2010 5:01 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

So Jon Favreau has bailed on Iron Man 3 to the surprise of absolutely no-one and he’ll spend the next couple of years re-tracing his childhood routes hanging around with Mickey, Goofy, Pluto and the gang at Disney. Basically, he will be transforming himself into the biggest 44 year old kid by taking on the dream job of helming a Magic Kingdom film, an adventure movie that’s literally set in a Disneyland Theme Park where the rides and characters come to life!

What he leaves behind at Marvel is of course their marquee character, Iron Man. The character that gave Marvel a film franchise, a franchise that gave Marvel a production company and proved that they might just get away with their audacious plans for an unprecedented cinematic comic book continuity that stretches over half a dozen films in a decade, with the promise of further expansion if the »

Chris Evans Talks Captain America & The Avengers

21 December 2010 2:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Last month, we got a look at the first official images of Chris Evans (as Steve Rogers/Captain America), Haley Atwell (as Peggy Carter), Hugo Weaving (as Johann Schmidt, a.k.a. The Red Skull), Stanley Tucci (as Doctor Abraham Erskine) and Richard Armitage (as Heinz Kruger) from the Joe Johnston directed, Captain America: The First Avenger.

Cap himself, recently spoke with Wizard Magazine and talked about the film, the fans, The Avengers and more. Check it out below!

Comic book fans are particularly protective of Captain America. He is after all supposed to be the physical and moral pinnacle of humanity. Does that shield feel heavy under all that pressure?

Chris Evans: As far as the physicality goes, that comes from the serum, and I think special effects will help me carry the load. As far as who he is as a man, the reason he’s chosen »

Chris Evans Reflects on ‘Captain America’ & Previous Comic Book Movie Roles

20 December 2010 8:28 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

While we’d prefer to have an official theatrical preview for director Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger to compare to the other trailers for highly-anticipated comic book pics, an insightful discussion with the man who is playing the titular superhero (Chris Evans) will suffice for now.

Evans has chatted openly before about handling Captain America’s costume and shield, as well as the tone and design of the film. Now he’s spoken out a bit more about the pressures that come with tackling the role of Steve Rogers and how his previous experience with Marvel comic adaptations has affected his outlook on Captain America.

Evans spoke recently with Wizard Magazine and had the following to say about the Captain:

“He’s a real redeeming character to play, it’s exciting to think of playing ...

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

Empire Building: The Making of The Empire Strikes Back

17 December 2010 2:43 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the recent passing of director Irvin Kershner, Trevor Hogg explores the development of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back...

“For many fans and cinephiles, Empire is the best of the Star Wars movies, dark and enigmatic – the film noir of the saga,” writes author J.W. Rinzler in the introduction of his latest effort The Making of The Empire Strikes Back – a detailed exploration into the production of the science fiction-fantasy film; together with The Godfather: Part II it is considered to be the gold standard for movie sequels. However, the critical and box office success of the acclaimed second installment, which established American filmmaker George Lucas as an independent studio mogul and caused him to rebuild his special effects company Industrial Light & Magic, was far from being a forgone conclusion. “Many Ilm veterans cite it as the toughest film of their careers,” observed Rinzler of »

Jon Favreau Won’t Be Directing Iron Man 3, Visiting the Magic Kingdom Instead

15 December 2010 10:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Earlier this month, we brought you the news that Marvel Studios was location scouting in Troy, New York for the production of Iron Man 3. Director Jon Favreau (Cowboys & Aliens) also dropped some info about the third installment, saying that Iron Man 3 would actually be more of a sequel or continuation of Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The First Avenger, and the Joss Whedon directed team-up, The Avengers, than a follow-up to Iron Man 2.

Now, NYMag reports that Favreau will not be directing the third installment of the Iron Man franchise. The director will however be sticking with Marvel’s parent company for his next film, directing Magic Kingdom for Walt Disney Pictures.

Favreau confirmed the news on Twitter – saying,

It’s true, I’m directing Magic Kingdom, not Iron Man 3. I’ve had a great run with Marvel and wish them the best.

The director then told the La Times, »

No Favreau? 10 Directors Who Could Take Over 'Iron Man 3'

14 December 2010 4:28 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jon Favreau will not return to direct Marvel's "Iron Man 3," the filmmaker confirmed Tuesday on Twitter. "It's true, I'm directing Magic Kingdom, not Iron Man 3. I've had a great run with Marvel and wish them the best," wrote Favreau. The filmmaker's relationship with Marvel reportedly soured after the release of "Iron Man 2, though he did consult on both Kenneth Branagh's "Thor" and Joe Johnston's "Captain America," and remains on board to exec produce Joss Whedon's "The Avengers." Now that Favreau has left the director's chair, let's take a look at »

Jon Favreau Tells Marvel He Won’t Direct Iron Man 3

14 December 2010 1:56 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jon Favreau has reportedly told Marvel execs this morning that he won’t be the man to direct Iron Man 3, which currently has a projected May 3rd, 2013 release date.

The rumoured decision isn’t at all surprising given the rocky relationship Favreau and the studio have shared over the past few years which really boiled over when disagreements occurred over the creative and financial package of Iron Man 2. Eventually Favreau got the pay deal he wanted (reports say as much as $10 million plus around 10% of the final gross, which added to Robert Downey Jr’s deal is a helluva lot of outgoings on talent) but perhaps he didn’t win the creative battles, as his direction on the sequel looked tired, his imagination watered down and his interest seemed somewhere else entirely.

Jon Favreau Not Directing 'Iron Man 3' -- Who Should Replace Him?

14 December 2010 8:19 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

It's news we've expected for awhile, especially amid the rumors of Jon Favreau's unhappiness with the way 'Iron Man 2' was haphazardly thrown together. Vulture reports (and Deadline has further confirmed) via sources that Jon Favreau informed Marvel last night that he would not be taking on the 'Iron Man 3' directing job. There's no official statement as of yet -- and even if there was one (or is one), expect it to include the words "creative differences," or blame Favreau's busy schedule (he's about to start work on Disney's 'Magic Kingdom' right after he's done with 'Cowboys and Aliens').

Vulture is claiming that Favreau's higher salary demands may have been part of the problem, especially since Marvel is all about cutting costs where they can. And while Favreau may have come somewhat cheaply for both 'Iron Man »

Kevin Feige (President of Production at Marvel Studios) On Set Interview Thor; Read a Massive Interview Done on the Soundstages of Thor!

10 December 2010 9:01 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you’re looking forward to Marvel’s Thor movie, I’m about to make your day.  That’s because earlier this year I got to visit the set and the embargo has finally been lifted!  And even though Marvel is usually very guarded when you visit their sets, the visit for Thor was not only very revealing, but extremely illuminating.  That’s because Kevin Feige, the President of Production at Marvel Studios, told us a tremendous amount about Thor and how this film will help propel many other Marvel movies.

Unfortunately, when you visit a set you’re never allowed to take any pictures, or use any sort of video device.  But you are allowed to use audio recorders.  So after the jump you can either read a transcript or listen to all the audio files of everything that was talked about.  What’s great about the audio is »

The Best Double Features of 2010 (Updated With Reader Suggestions)

8 December 2010 3:21 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

The double feature is the moviegoing ritual most deserving of a comeback. It's the stuff of movie palaces, drive-ins, and getting more bang for your entertainment buck. The double feature is that magic that happens when two totally separate movies get juxtaposed together and begin talking to one another in strange and exciting ways. As part of IFC.com's year-end hullabaloo, I decided to list the five most interesting hypothetical double features of 2010, along with five more runners-up. In no particular order, they are:

Money, Family, and Escape in Modern Boston

"The Town"

Directed by Ben Affleck

with "The Fighter"

Directed by David O. Russell

Though these films are from totally different genres -- one a classic one-last-job heist movie, the other an inspirational boxing film -- they share a common theme at their respective cores: a working-class man's obligation to his friends and family and his realization of his »

Iron Man 3: Already Location Scouting; Will Be A Sequel To Thor, Captain America and The Avengers

7 December 2010 6:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Back in October, we told you that The Walt Disney Company‘s newly acquired Marvel Entertainment had been transferred the worldwide marketing and distribution rights for both The Avengers and Iron Man 3 from Paramount Pictures.

We had assumed it would be quite some time before we heard anything other than that on Iron Man 3, as it’s to follow Captain America, Thor and the Joss Whedon directed team-up, The Avengers. Now, The Record in Troy, New York recently confirmed that Marvel Studios is location scouting in their area for the production of Iron Man 3, and have taken an interest in the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center building [Pictured Below].

Marvel is reportedly interested in utilizing the building as the secret lab for Iron Man 3‘s rumored villain, The Mandarin.
