It’s been reveled that last Friday (Sept 23rd), Marvel held a “for your consideration” screening of Captain America: Civil War – officially putting it forward for awards season.
Several Marvel Cinematic Universe movies – including Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Captain America: The Winter Solider, and Guardians of the Galaxy – have found themselves in the ‘technical’ categories, but they’ve never breached into Best Film or Best Actor territories. Could this be their first year?
It should be noted that several blockbusters do this (Michael Bay did it a few years ago with Transformers: Age of Extinction), and its highly likely the Academy will overlook the movie – despite it earning $1.2 billion at the box office with a 90% rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has gone on record several times to criticise the Academy for always overlooking summer tentpole »

In the build up to the release of Captain America: Civil War there was a lot of speculation as to whether Marvel would follow the Civil War comic book story arc with the death of Captain America, while one rumour even suggested that death scenes had been filmed for Falcon, War Machine and Scarlet Witch.
However, as we now know, the Avengers all came out of the movie alive and pretty much unscathed (well, not so much Rhodey), and during a Q&A in Hollywood this past Friday, directors Joe and Anthony Russo and producer Kevin Feige were asked about the lack of deaths in the movie. Their response is as follows (courtesy of HitFix):
Anthony Russo: We never talked about killing Cap in this one, right? no.
Joe Russo: We did for a beat. We talk about everything.
Anthony Russo: I think the thing to remember is, »

This shouldn't come as too much of a spoiler, but towards the end of Marvel Comics' Civil War storyline, Captain America bites the big one. And for months leading up to the release of Captain America: Civil War in theaters this past May, many fans believed Chris Evans' freedom fighter would face a similar fate. That never came to pass, though. And War Machine was the only Avenger who really even came close to dying, though everyone lived. Today, directors Joe and Anthony Russo discuss why that panned out in such fashion.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was speedster Quicksilver who didn't quite make it to end credits. And it showed that Marvel was willing to sacrifice a few of its characters for the greater good of storytelling. So many fans walked into Civil War expecting to see at least one major character's arc come to an end. »
The latest viral Instagram craze to reach Hollywood since 2014's Ice Bucket Challenge has arrived. The #22PushUpChallenge aims to raise awareness for the high rate of suicide among veterans, which sadly occurs 22 times per day. The movement first gained traction in August when Chris Pratt and Anna Faris documented their push-ups on Instagram, and challenged Dwayne "my muscles barely fit in my t-shirt" Johnson to bust out a few himself. Since then, celebrities like David Beckham (in his underwear on top of a piano, mind you) Scott Eastwood, Chris Evans, and more have gotten inspired to post their own versions of the challenge. See them all for yourself! »

"Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" has become one of the most popular features on Jimmy Kimmel Live in recent years, and the latest instalment (which happens to be the tenth) is packed full of faces which should be instantly recognisable to visitors of this site as they're forced to read some harsh insults! Among those with ties to the world of superheroes and comic books are Chris Evans (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War), Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Russell Crowe (Man of Steel), Bryan Cranston (Power Rangers), and Kiefer Sutherland (24). That's an impressive line-up, eh? Anyway, these guys are probably sick of reading mean Tweets by now, so feel free to say something nice about them in the comments section below. Alternatively, you can just laugh at their reactions »
Jimmy Kimmel’s “Mean Tweets” segment is back for another round of celebrities reading the terrible things people say about them on Twitter. This edition included Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, Anthony Mackie, Chris Evans, Norman Reedus, and Margot Robbie, whose tweet (from @sodomyclown) read: “‘Tongue punch in the fart box’ is a neglected phrase. Use it today! Example: Margot Robbie deserves a tongue punch in the fart box.” Also Read: Jimmy Kimmel's Latest 'Lie Witness News' Proves Donald Trump Fans Will Support Anything He Does (Video) After reading his, which compared his lack of charm to the experience of »

<span id="selection-marker-1" class="redactor-selection-marker"></span>It's been more than six months since the last installment of "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" from Jimmy Kimmel Live. Suffice it to say, we're ready for another round, and the newest addition is more star-studded (and savage) than ever. Ryan Gosling addresses his "fart face," Kate Hudson gets called a "dead-eyed trash bag," and Chris Evans can't even hold it together as he is overcome with laughter. This one surely joins all the others in the hall of fame. »

Though his tenure in the Spidey universe was abruptly cut short following The Amazing Spider-Man and its divisive sequel, Marc Webb will soon be circling back to the Big Apple for The Only Living Boy in New York – and it doesn’t involve one Peter Parker.
Instead, the long-in-development drama is a decidedly more adult-oriented affair, featuring Green Room‘s Callum Turner as a recent college graduate who discovers that his father (Jeff Bridges) has been indulging in an affair with a woman (Kate Beckinsale) who he himself goes on to become romantically involved with. Talk about an awkward family reunion. Dope and The Flash‘s Kiersey Clemons is also attached.
Penned by Allan Loeb, The Only Living Boy in New York isn’t the only film to have fallen onto Webb’s back-burner, who has also lined up Gifted with Jenny Slate and Captain America himself, Chris Evans. In terms of the former, »

Ever since filming began on Spider-Man: Homecoming in Atlanta this past June, we've seen plenty of set photos and videos from director Jon Watts and star Tom Holland. Today we have a new video from Jon Watts, which doesn't feature Tom Holland or any other cast member, but it does tease that some aerial stunt work is happening on the set. The brief video shows a "To Set" sign pointing up revealing a helicopter above him.
Unfortunately, we don't see much else in this Instagram video, and the director wouldn't shed any light on what this helicopter was being used for. The helicopter did have a wire or a cable hanging down from it, which could mean that someone might be rappelling from the helicopter, but we don't know for sure. We don't know how much more filming is left on this new Spider-Man adventure, which has been set for »
We’ve already seen a lot of concept art from Captain America: Civil War over the past few months, and now following its home-entertainment release, Marvel has released one final batch, which includes some key frame art for key scenes from the film, along with designs for Crossbones and Iron Man; take a look at the images here…
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s »

Ever since production started on Spider-Man: Homecoming, star Tom Holland has been sharing numerous videos and photos from the set, but his latest may have revealed a big spoiler. Yesterday, the actor shared a photo of himself, co-star Jacob Batalon and friend Harrison Osterfield at the Porsche headquarters in Atlanta. While it seems like a seemingly innocent photo, it may reveal that an iconic Avengers location will be revisited in Spider-Man: Homecoming. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
Spider-Man: Homecoming has been shooting in Atlanta since late June, so, at first glance, there seems to be nothing out of the ordinary with Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, who plays Ned Leeds in the movie, and Harrison Osterfield posing for a photo at the Porsche headquarters in Atlanta. The Instagram photo doesn't show any signs that this facility is being used for the production, but »
Avengers, disassemble! That's the gist of Captain America: Civil War, an elaborate excuse for creating a rift among the world's mightiest heroes so they can theoretically rejoin forces when big bad blue Thanos puts earth in his cross hairs and comes after Vision's yellow Infinity Stone.
Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and his high moral values are the film's central protagonist -- if only by a hair -- while directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo juggle the largest roster of Marvel Cinematic Universe characters in a single film yet within a politically charged plot. It's a daunting task that's miraculously pulled off at the lone expense of failing to create a worthwhile third-party adversary pulling strings from the shadows.
While Captain America, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and almost every other Avenger save for Hulk and Thor partake in easily the best action sequences of the franchise yet, newcomers Spider-Man (Tom Holland »
It's been a pretty epic few days for fan-made videos. Earlier this week we shared with you a video that outlined a major flaw in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, and this morning I've got a masterfully edited video clip that places Deadpool into Captain America: Civil War. In the clip, which has gone viral, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) is hanging out during the epic airport sequence from Civil War while Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Captain America (Chris Evans) tussle.
Was that well-made, or what?
The clip should be especially pleasurable for longtime comic book fans, who have enjoyed some wonderful crossovers and team-ups between Spider-Man and Deadpool. In fact, with the surprise smash hit that Deadpool turned out to be, people everywhere have been clamoring for a way »

With so many superhero movies having flooded the box office in the past decade or so – with many more to come through 2020 – it’s become increasingly more important for filmmakers to break the mold and take calculated risks, lest the genre become stale and possibly implode. Despite playing it safe in some respects (a narrated letter near the end of the film pretty much undoes all the conflict that preceded it), Captain America: Civil War makes some significant strides when it came to charting new territory for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Much of this can be attributed to co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo, who have become the gold standard when it comes to creating great Marvel films, at least in my view. Between Civil War and its forbearer, The Winter Soldier, the Russos have cracked the formula »

Bucky Barnes and Captain America have one epic friendship, but it doesn't quite compare to Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan's real-life bromance. Ever since starring in Captain America: The First Avenger together back in 2011, the two have shared some pretty adorable moments, both on and off screen. But honestly, with Sebastian's gorgeous smile and Chris's charming personality, we wouldn't expect anything less. If you're just as obsessed with the actors as we are, keep scrolling for their best snaps, and then check out yet another one of Marvel's Hollywood bromances. »
