Daniel Bruhl confirms Baron Zemo role in Captain America: Civil War

40 minutes ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been expected from the moment he was cast, but now it seems we can make it official, as Daniel Bruhl (Rush) has confirmed to The Independent that he’s set to portray Baron Helmut Zemo in next year’s Phase Three launching Marvel sequel Captain America: Civil War.

“I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison,” states Bruhl. “For the first few days I’ll walk around like a little boy, just amazed by the megalomania of it. It’s such a huge project. We could do 20 films with the budget.”

In the comic books, Helmut is the 13th Baron Zemo, having taken over from his father Dr. Henrich Zemo, a Nazi scientist and Second World War foe of Captain America, when Cap reappears after his stint in the ice. As well as taking »

1 hour ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Collectively, they’re the Avengers- the saviours of the universe, combatants for justice who are as quick to take down an enemy as they are to share a quip about a fellow team member (we're looking at you, Tony Stark). 

As we prepare to enter into battle with the old gang – Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Thor – in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we’re putting you to the test to see how well you know their alter egos, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johnasson, Chris EvansMark RuffaloJeremy Renner, and Chris Hemsworth.  With two new recruits along for the ride in the form of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), The Avengers: Age of Ultron promises to be one non-stop thrill ride as the team battles their new enemy, Ultron (James Spader) in Joss Whedon's latest film.

Daniel Bruhl Confirms He’s Baron Zemo In Captain America: Civil War

1 hour ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Although the news has all but been confirmed previously, actor Daniel Bruhl has now officially confirmed to The Independent that he is indeed appearing as Baron Zemo in Captain America: Civil War.

As many had speculated, he will portray Baron Helmut Zemo, the son of the original Baron Heinrich Zemo, who in the comics was a former Hydra scientist who fought Captain America during World War II. His son makes much more sense for the current timeline as in the comics he teamed with Captain America: Winter Soldier villains Arnim Zola and Batroc in an attempt to take down Captain America, and at one point becomes disfigured when he falls into a vat of his father’s chemical Adhesive X.

Bruhl said;

“I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison,” Brühl said. “For the first few days I’ll walk around like a little boy, »

Daniel Bruhl Confirmed as Baron Zemo in 'Captain America: Civil War'

2 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We're bound to be getting plenty of Marvel updates this week with the arrival of The Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters beginning at 7pm on Thursday, April 30th. And today, we already have one update about the next film from Marvel Studios slated to go into production in May. Captain America: Civil War will have Iron Man (Tony Stark) and Captain America (Chris Evans) coming to blows, but there will still be a villain in play. We've known for awhile that Daniel Bruhl will play that villain, but there's been some confusion as to who he will actually play. Now we have confirmation from the actor himself. Read on! Bruhl was speaking to The Independent (via ComingSoon) that he's playing the villain Baron Helmut Zemo. If you're not familiar with that villain, he's the son of a Hydra scientist who fought Captain America during World War II and formed The Masters of Evil. »

Is The Spider-Man Reboot Titled Spider-Man: The New Avenger?

3 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he’s no longer affiliated with Latino Review, scoopster extraordinaire El Mayimbe (aka Umberto Gonzales) is still working hard to break comic-book news for impatient superhero aficionados the world over. And yesterday, he emerged with a rather interesting rumor about Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man reboot, which will bring the wall-crawler into the Marvel Cinematic Universe under the watchful eye of Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige. According to El Mayimbe, the title of the pic is not Spectacular Spider-Man, as previously rumored, but Spider-Man: The New Avenger.

Now, clunky as it is, that subtitle would allow Feige to bring Spidey closer to the McU and distance him from Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man films. It would also confirm what many already suspect – that Spider-Man will become a member of the second Avengers lineup, which will be formed following the cataclysmic events of Captain America: Civil War. A separate rumor »

'Age of Ultron' Review: Blockbuster Sequel Offers More of Same to Satisfy Global Audiences' Appetite

13 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron': Chris Evans as Captain America and Chris Hemsworth as Thor 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' review: More of same in 'The Avengers' gargantuan sequel Someday somebody's going to make a superhero tentpole movie that doesn't involve the fate of the world or lay waste to vast chunks of God's green earth. Writer/director Joss Whedon, he of the numbingly gargantuan action sequence, is not that somebody. And yet to blame him for not following up 2012's The Avengers, the third highest grossing film ever made, with My Dinner with Thor is not realistic. It would also be a shame. Whedon, by any fair accounting, marshaled enormous reserves of wit and flair to slam-dunk the first film, a mighty achievement considering he needed to establish the Avengers series as the all-important sun around which an entire solar system of individual comic book properties would revolve. For the inevitable round two, »

Downey Jr. & Evans Talk "Civil War"

19 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

As the press winds down for "Avengers: Age of Ultron," a few final quotes about "Captain America: Civil War" have come to light courtesy of the film's two key stars Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans.

Filming officially kicks off tomorrow on the project which sees the two superheroes falling out over a superhero registration act - Tony Stark supports it, Steve Rogers does not.

Evans talks about how the fallout of 'Ultron' impacts Tony and leads to his decision: "Morality hits Tony, humanity hits Tony. All of a sudden he feels responsible. Neither one of them are blindly convicted. It's blurry and that's what makes it great. No one's right, no one's wrong... It's like a marriage: We love each other but it's explosive. You're working toward the same goal but you have very different approaches to it."

Downey adds: "It's going to make it even harder for them to come to an agreement, »

Joss Whedon interested in directing a DC movie

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We know that Joss Whedon has decided to call time on his Marvel exploits with Avengers: Age of Ultron, having decided to hand over the reins on the Avengers franchise to Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo for Avengers: Infinity War, but it seems he still has ambitions in the superhero genre, with the filmmaker telling IGN that he’d like to take a crack at a DC movie.

“I’d be like ‘I have all these joke ideas.’ And they’d be like ‘No, we don’t do that here.’ I desperately wanted to do a Batman film – who doesn’t? And I wanted to do Wonder Woman. I was a Marvel kid growing up, but I was always DC-curious. And I see myself on the spectrum in between.”

Whedon did spend several years developing a Wonder Woman movie for Warner Bros. [you can take a look at the 2005 Comic-Con poster here], and he was »

'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Home Video Release Will Feature An "Extended Edition" With An "Alternate Ending"

26 April 2015 6:08 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this month, Joss Whedon revealed that his first cut of "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" ran approximately three-and-a-half hours. While initial assemblies of movie's are always extraordinarily long, and don't represent how the final cut will look, there are still things in there that a filmmaker finds hard to let go of. And that was certainly the case the Whedon. “There's one or two things that I'm unhappy about not having in there, but they're small,” Whedon admitted about the theatrical version. Well, now he's getting a chance to put some of that stuff back into the movie.

Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron review

25 April 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Because of the anticipation surrounding this film, this review will endeavour to avoid any major specific plot spoilers, instead talking in general terms and about things that have already been revealed in trailers and interviews and so on. However, if you still want to know absolutely as little as possible about the film beforehand, then: a) go see it, it's awesome, and b) there is a scene shortly into the end credits. In any case, consider this article more a quick first reaction than an in-depth thematic analysis.

Writer-director Joss Whedon's The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble, in the UK) was a smash-hit back in 2012 for Marvel. His return to the franchise (which will also be his Avengers swansong), Avengers: Age of Ultron, is a darker, more emotionally resonant sequel (as with The Empire Strikes Back or How to Train Your Dragon 2), while still delivering spectacular superheroic action and an abundance of laugh-out-loud humour. »

Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-ray to include extended edition and alternate ending

25 April 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It only just opened in the UK this past Thursday – and is yet to even hit screens in the States – but Amazon is already offering us the chance to pre-order Avengers: Age of Ultron on Blu-ray, and if its product description is any indication, the home entertainment release will include an extended version of the movie, as well as an alternate ending…

Joss Whedon’s original cut of the movie ran for some three hours in length, but just last week the filmmaker warned us not to expect a Director’s Cut of the movie, although he did promise plenty of deleted scenes on the Blu-ray and DVD release. So, this news is certainly surprising, and we should probably wait until we hear something from Marvel before taking this as gospel…

Mark Ruffalo takes on gender stereotypes by answering 'sexist' interview questions

25 April 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mark Ruffalo has tackled gender stereotypes head-on by answering 'sexist' red carpet questions usually put to actresses.

The Oscar-nominated actor was put to task by Cosmopolitan when the magazine told Ruffalo and Avengers: Age of Ultron co-star Scarlett Johansson that they wanted to "flip around" the interview questions.

Ruffalo answered questions about what he's wearing on the red carpet, and if he was under pressure to "slim down, get in shape and go on a diet". He was also asked if he has any personal cleansing tips for removing tough make-up, and demonstrated some red carpet poses at the interviewer's request.

Meanwhile, Johansson discussed how many stunts she did on Avengers, as well as her favourite thing about playing Natasha, aka the Black Widow.

This week, Ruffalo and Johansson's co-stars Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner apologised for calling Black Widow a "slut" and "a complete whore" in their interview with Digital Spy. »
