Los Angeles (AP) — Captain America continues to vanquish box office foes, triumphing in ticket sales for the third consecutive week and beating formidable contender Johnny Depp. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" added another $26 million to its coffers, according to studio estimates Sunday, while Depp's sci-fi thriller, "Transcendence," opened in fourth place with $11 million. Directed by longtime Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister, the Warner Bros. film is Depp's second consecutive box office disappointment. He played Tonto in last summer's "The Lone Ranger" — one of the biggest flops of 2013. Another newcomer, the religious film "Heaven Is for Real," debuted in third place over Easter weekend, while another sequel, "Rio 2," held on to the second spot. "The Winter Soldier" set a box-office record as the biggest April release ever when it opened with more than $96 million domestically. Starring Chris Evans as comic book hero Capt. America and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, »

A disembodied Johnny Depp in “Transcendence” proved no match for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” as Disney's superhero sequel steamrolled the competition for its third straight box-office win this weekend. The Marvel Comics-based thriller starring Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson brought in $26.6 million over the three days, raising its domestic total to $201.5 million and blasting past the $177 million total haul of the first “Captain America” movie in just just 15 days. That was enough to beat out Fox's animated family film “Rio 2” at $22.5 million, as well as the surprising Christian drama “Heaven Is for Real.” Starring Greg »

Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan abstractly talk about what they'd like Captain America 3 to explore in Phase 3 on the This Week In Marvel podcast. Kevin Feige tells ScreenCrush that SpaceKnight Rom will probably never appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to licensing issues. We may seem some other SpaceKnights but not Rom specifically. "I think there are legal issues with Rom. I think Rom is owned by a toy company or something. I think we have Spaceknights, but we don’t have Rom. I think they did some standalone Spaceknights comics at some point. Rom, I believe, was a licensed deal. Like G.I. Joe and Transformers back in the day." Over at TV Line, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. creative team of Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen talk about the recent Agent Ward (Brett Dalton) revelations and what that means for the show moving forward. Particularly, on whether Ward »
The ComingSoon.net Box Office Report has been updated with studio estimates for the weekend. Click here for the full box office estimates of the top 12 films and then check back on Monday for the final figures based on actual box office. Moviegoers seem to have simultaneously gotten smarter and more spiritual over the first quarter of 2014 and that was clearly shown by this week's box office as four new movies opened--two with horrible reviews--and moviegoers decided to stick with the "sure things"--the sequels already in theaters and a movie based on a Christian bestseller--over the Easter weekend. Winning the battle for #1 for a third weekend in a row was Marvel Studios' Captain America: The Winter Soldier , starring Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett »

Holdovers "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Rio 2" ruled the box office on Friday, while the new Johnny Depp sci-fi film "Transcendence" experienced a system crash -- trailing behind fellow newcomer "Heaven is For Real." Marvel's "Captain America" continued its reign as box office champ, commanding another $9.5 million. Its domestic total stands at a heroic $184 million. It should earn in excess of $25 million for the weekend, placing it past the $200 million goal, and leaving the 2011 original in the dust. Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford and Samuel L. Jackson star. The animated sequel "Rio 2" flew to $9.2 million for No. 2, rising its domestic haul to a hearty $62 million. It will likely earn around $23 million through Sunday. Proving that the recent success of "God's Not Dead" was no fluke, the release of the faith-based "Heaven Is For Real" -- coinciding with Easter weekend -- was blessed with a suprisingly huge $7.8 million in Friday. »

Apparently, it’s hard to keep a good soldier (and movie!) down: Captain America: The Winter Soldier brought in an estimated $9.57 million for Disney/Marvel on Friday night, keeping it in the top spot for its third week in release. The movie — directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans as the ever-likeable Steve Rogers — has been well-received by critics and audiences (it has an A Cinemascore) and is on pace to cross the magic $200 million mark this weekend.

Bow down, mere mortals. Superheroes are among us once more. Captain America is already on screens battling the Winter Soldier. Spider-Man will soon be back to amaze us. Then two generations of X-Men unite in Days Of Future Past, while we'll be meeting the Guardians Of The Galaxy later this summer. And that's not to mention new outings in 2015 for the Avengers and Batman and Superman (together in the same movie!) in 2016.
It's astounding to think that, only two decades ago, all we had in terms of superhero blockbusters was a Batman franchise about to descend into Joel Schumacher-inspired camp. Today, the possibilities for Hollywood actors wanting to don cape and spandex are endless – but how best to approach the gig of playing a hero who is even more super than most A-listers already assume they are?
With a little input from those who have already saved the world, »

In Tim Story's Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Johnny Storm, played by Chris Evans ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier") has an encounter with the Silver Surfer that allows him to swap superpowers with members of his superhero team. In one memorable scene, Ben Grimm/Thing, played by Michael Chiklis ("The Commish"), is intrigued by Johnny's new ability and when he touches Johnny, Ben swaps his Thing form for Johnny's Human Torch powers. Flame on! Of course, Johnny is not pleased with his new rock-like skin and freaks out. It's a fairly humorous scene, but it could've looked a bit different. The image above, that's a piece of concept art that artist Dark Hoffman rendered for the film. As you can see, it is a much bulkier version of a transformed Johnny Storm as compared to the theaterical version that was ultimately chosen. Images of the final version »
Despite the fact that Sony has laid out the future of its Spider-Man franchise with The Amazing Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man 4, Venom and The Sinister Six, and Marvel Studios having reportedly mapped out the Marvel Cinematic Universe until 2028, it’s the question that just won’t go away… will we see Andrew Garfield’s wall-crawler appearing alongside The Avengers?
Marvel Studios may have kept quiet on the issue, but we’ve heard several comments from the likes of Garfield, director Marc Webb and others affiliated with the Spidey franchise raising hopes that we may get to see the big Marvel crossover one day. However, according to producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, it’s not going to happen until the Sony franchise has “run out of ideas”.
“I think I’m probably a little bit of the militant here,” Arad told IGN (via Cbm). “I think it will »

CBS Sunday Morning's Lee Cowan goes behind the scenes to interview Chris Evans' stunt double Sam Hargrave during the production of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While the main focus is on Hargrave, Cowan also interviews many other stunt people. Stunt work is one of the unsung elements of modern comic book movies. Most people think it's all visual effects and take for granted the hard hitting work of dedicated daredevils.

While Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer was ploughing ahead in the director's native South Korea, making $65m in that country alone last year, the sci-fi dystopia's release in English-speaking markets ground to a halt. The intentions of The Weinstein Company were much-publicised: to lop out around 25 minutes of character development from the film's 125-minute duration. There were also (thankfully false) internet rumours about a plan to paste in a Neil Gaiman-penned narration over the footage which remained.
The stand-off between director Bong and the Weinsteins, who wanted to make Snowpiercer accessible to "audiences in Iowa and Oklahoma" has, thankfully, been resolved since, and it seems that Snowpiercer will soon be screened uncut in countries such as Britain and America. In a strange parallel between life and art, »

The latest bit of speculation to hit the internet regarding Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to us courtesy of Nerd Reactor, who thinks that 42 star Chadwick Boseman may be showing up as Black Panther in the film.
Black Panther is one of the most prominent minority superheroes and in the comic books, he is most often depicted as the ruler of the fictional African country, Wakanda. Nerd Reactor quotes a report from Devin Faraci of Badass Digest, who says that the plot of the new Avengers film will involve the titular villain Ultron building his armor out of the material vibranium (the same material that Captain America’s shield is made out of), which he gets from Wakanda. So presumably, that’s how Panther will tie in.
Frankly, it’s about time the Black Panther made an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Marvel movies, »
