This massive superhero adventure will not only re-unite practically every character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the notable exceptions of Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), but it will also introduce fans to the new McU version of Spider-Man, portrayed by Tom Holland. Last night, Marvel's own Louis D'Esposito shared a new photo on his Twitter page, which features himself and Tom Holland, who appear to be on an Avengers Quinjet.
Louis D'Esposito wouldn't clarify where, and when, for that matter, this photo was taken, but fans on Twitter have been replying to this tweet with a variety of suggestions. It's possible that Captain America: Civil War could be undergoing reshoots right now, but that hasn't been confirmed as of yet, »

Even though Doctor Strange has been filming since November, it's never too late to add a new cast member. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that The Martian star Benedict Wong has signed on to play the Sorcerer Supreme's aptly-named sidekick, Wong. It isn't known if he just recently joined the cast, or if he was part of the production when filming started last year.
Wong has a long history in the Marvel Comics, making his debut in in 1963's "Strange Tales" #110. In the comics, Wong was a disciple of the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) who was sent to America to assist Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) during his journey of learning the mystical arts. The character also performs healing duties and assists with occult matters. One of his primary duties is looking after the Doctor's body while he is astral projecting into other planes of existence.

It’s been revealed today that The Martian’s Benedict Wong has been cast as Wong in Marvel’s Doctor Strange, the latest addition to the Scott Derrickson helmed release. With shooting already well underway, this is presumably the final major casting addition. Wong has traditionally been portrayed as Doctor Strange’s manservant in the comic books, but due to

The cast Marvel Studios and director Scott Derrickson assembled for the upcoming Doctor Strange film was already stellar before they went and tossed another wonderful character actor into the mix. Benedict Wong, best known for playing Nasa Jet Propulsion Lab director Bruce Ng in Ridley Scott’s The Martian, has joined the mystical superhero adventure as Wong, Stephen […]

Official character details have not yet been revealed by Marvel Studios, but in the comic books, Wong is Doctor Strange’s assistant, friend and defender. He has also helped a number of other heroes, like Spider-Man, over the years by providing them with information when the Sorcerer Supreme has been absent. However, if you’re at all curious about how he’ll likely be portrayed in this movie, Doctor Strange: The Oath is probably a good place to start, as that’s clearly inspired a fair bit of this film so far.
Marvel needs to be very careful with Wong, as one wrong move could lead to him coming across as a racist caricature, »

Next up on the Marvel Cinematic Universe docket is Captain America: Civil War, the Russo Bros movie that is basically and Avengers 2.5 leading into Phase 3 of the McU. There’s more to learn about Civil War, including who lives and dies, as we march through the Daredevils and Dawns of Justice in March.
If you don’t want to talk about matters of life and death and Marvel, it’s time to move on!
The Hashtag Show on Youtube claims to have the inside scoop on some Civil War death shenanigans. You see, we’ve long suspected as a fan community that Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers could be biting the big one in the third movie. Before the movie was given the title Civil War, it was whispered to be codenamed Fallen Son, the name of the comic book arc where Captain America is shot by Crossbones (first time I posted this I put "Bullseye. »
Caged and waiting to be eaten. Visited by the dead at nightfall. Asked to climb into the oven to clean it. The characters in The Green Inferno, Sinister 2, and The Visit are faced with horror of many forms, and while their scary situations are vastly different from one another, all of their stories can now be experienced on Blu-ray.
The Green Inferno: Hopeful for change, the student activists travel to the Amazon rainforest to save a tribe threatened by deforestation, only to be captured by the natives and placed on the menu. In The Green Inferno, Eli Roth exposes viewers to a palpable sense of primal fear, realistically placing his young cast of well-meaning characters in a horrifying “what if?” situation made all the more real by the filming location: a village deep in the jungles of Peru.

Ryan Coogler is, frankly, the only choice Marvel could make for Black Panther. Creed, which landed at the number four spot on my end of the year top ten list, is one of those films I've seen several times now and each time, I see something else about it that I find impressive. Coogler made a strong debut with Fruitvale Station, but his technical work on Creed is on a whole different level. What strikes me most about his work is how deceptively simple his visual plan for the film was, because there are some really sophisticated sequences that audiences most likely never think about twice in terms of how they were created. There are invisible visual effects that audiences didn't register at all, and there are some terrific bits of action staging during the fights. More than anything, though, there's no fat on the film, and it has a canny sense of pop storytelling. »

In addition, the Marvel Studios President also confirms one of the alternate realms that we’ll see in the Scott Derrickson-directed adaptation which might indicate other characters that will appear.
