If you've been keeping an eye on the set photos from Captain America: The Winter Soldier this past week, then you'll know that Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury appears to find himself on the wrong side of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division in the upcoming Marvel sequel, and a new batch of images have arrived online via The Daily Mail, which show a bloodied and bruised (former?) S.H.I.E.L.D. director...
This isn't the first time we've seen trouble within S.H.I.E.L.D., with a batch of set photos last month showing Chris Evans' Steve Rogers and Scarlet Johansson's Black Widow confronting S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Agent Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández) - check them out here.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is currently filming in Cleveland under directors Anthony and Joe Russo (Community). Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes / The Winter Soldier), Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill), Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter) and Toby Jones »

Well here's one for the books... after Joss Whedon confirmed that he'd be introducing the mutant siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015's The Avengers, 20th Century Fox has moved to steal a march on Marvel Studios, with Bryan Singer revealing via Twitter that Quicksilver has been added the roster of X-Men: Days of Future Past, with Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, American Horror Story) cast in the role.
Having featured in both the X-Men and Avengers comic books, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - the offspring of X-Men baddie Magneto - are the subject of a bizarre rights issue, whereby both Fox and Marvel Studios can use the characters as part of their respective worlds, although Marvel can't make reference to them being mutants (or Magento's kids) and Fox can't refer to them as part of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Considering the fact that X-Men: Days of Future Past »

As previously reported, Downey was forced to take six weeks off during production to recover from an ankle injury. That kind of delay would've destroyed the studio's plans to get the film into theaters by May 3rd.
Instead, a special effects team was brought in to continue filming. Essentially a body double shot the scenes live action, while Downey's face was shot acting out the scenes and digitally inserted over the double.
Visual effects supervisor Chris Townsend says: "We were able to reconstruct [Downey] as Tony Stark on set, with the help of a body double and the facial captures we collected afterwards."

Now that writer-director Joss Whedon has confirmed sibling superheroes Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be a part of The Avengers 2, the talk has shifted to casting these roles. Actress Saoirse Ronan recently spoke about rumors that the director is using her as a "prototype" for the Scarlet Witch character. Although she has not officially been cast yet, the actress revealed she would love to take on the role.
"I have heard about it and yes, I would. Yeah, of course I would. I love Joss and I love those films, and I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think it's very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I'd love to be in it."
Quicksilver (Pietro Maximoff) and Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff) started out in the X-Men comic book franchise, as villains under the control of Magneto. They switched »
While Samuel L. Jackson’s Director Fury played a minor part in Marvel’s solo outings, his role really became integral in Joss Whedon’s epic superhero ensemble, The Avengers. However, his appearance is again a whole lot more prominent in the currently-shooting Captain America sequel, The Winter Soldier, which interestingly being described by the studio as a ‘political thriller’ in the Tom Clancy mould.
It’s said the latest adventure will merge two comic-book arcs, one that sees Steve Rogers’ (Chris Evans) former friend, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) resurrected as deadly assassin of the sub-title by a villain known as Crossbones (being played by Frank Grillo), as well as elements of ‘Nick Fury: Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D‘, in which the top secret government operative is forced to go on the run, soon seeking help and teaming up with the patriotic super soldier.

The British actor will return as Arnim Zola in the upcoming sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger.
"I was pleased to be brought back," he told Coming Soon. "I thought I might be - because you'd know better than I do - but Zola finds a way to defeat time and you won't be disappointed with the way that's been treated in the film."
Anthony and Joe Russo's sequel stars Chris Evans in his third appearance as Steve Rogers/Captain America, while The Avengers stars Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L Jackson will also reprise their roles as Black Widow and Nick Fury respectively.
Described as a "political thriller", The Winter Soldier focuses on Rogers in modern-day Washington DC, and sees him team up with Black Widow to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy.

Last year, Robert Downey Jr injured his ankle while on set of "Iron Man 3." The actor was forced to take six weeks off to recover, which would have completely destroyed Marvel's timetable to get the movie into theaters by May 3rd. Instead of putting the production on hold, a decision was made to bring on the special effects team in order to continue filming. The plan was to create Downey digitally and insert him into key sequences. "We were able to reconstruct [Downey] as Tony Stark on set, with the help of a body double and the facial captures we collected afterwards," explained visual effects supervisor Chris Townsend, who said that the entire beach scene at the end was constructed this way. The process is similar to how Chris Evans was turned into a skinny Steve Rogers in the beginning of "Captain America." »
When Robert Downey Jr. suffered a serious injury and had to take 6 weeks to recover, Shane Black and co. obviously kept production going on Marvel's Iron Man threequel..but they didn't only shoot scenes without Tony Stark in them. For that last scene with Tony overlooking the beach from the ruins of his mansion for example, a body double was used and Downey Jr.'s face superimposed in much the same fashion as the "Skinny Steve" version of Chris Evans was created in Captain America: Tfa. “Together with face replacement and full body doubles, somewhere there was a solution to the problem of not having Robert Downey Jnr on set for the time,” explains Iron Man 3's VFX supervisor Chris Townsend. "We were able to reconstruct Rdj as Tony Stark on set, with the help of a body double and the facial captures we'd collected afterwards." I've seen »
Here’s what he had to say:
“All I can say about it is that I was pleased to be brought back…I thought I might be–because you’d know better than I do–but Zola finds a way to defeat time and you won’t be disappointed with the way that’s been treated in the film, that’s what I would say.”
The sequel stars Chris Evans, Frank Grillo, Toby Jones, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Anthony Mackie, Dominic Cooper, Sebastian Stan and Georges St-Pierre. It’s coming April 4th, 2014. »

Justin Long had been attached to play the lead in Tom Holland’s Ten O’Clock People, an adaptation of the Stephen King short story. Now, due to a scheduling conflict, he’s dropped out, and Avengers star Chris Evans is looking into taking his place.
Evans would play the man “who tries to quit smoking with the help of a new drug only to discover a frightening aspect of reality as he kicks nicotine.”

The other day, we half-joked about "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" being our most anticipated for the rest of the year. Of course, we are desperately counting the days until the comedy sequel arrives, but there are films that are probably a little higher on our watch-list. And perhaps at the very top is Bong Joon-Ho's "Snowpiercer." The Korean filmmaker, who was behind "Memories of Murder," "The Host" (the good one, not the Stephenie Meyer one) and "Mother" is one of the most exciting filmmakers in the world right now, so we've been following his English-language debut with eagle-eyes ever since it was announced, and even more so since he started to assemble a killer international cast. But the closer the film gets, and the more we see of it, the more desperate the wait for it becomes, and that's true of the latest batch of photos and posters for the movie that just arrived. »
