30 June 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s certainly a lot of excitement about next year’s Phase Three-launching Captain Amercia: Civil War. Not only is it adapting one of Marvel’s most acclaimed story arcs, but it’s also bringing together pretty much every character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as introducing Spider-Man!

However, the wall-crawler won’t be the only new addition to the McU in Civil War, as Chadwick Boseman is set to make his debut as T’Challa, a.k.a. the Black Panther, aheaqd of his solo movie in 2018. Speaking to Birth.Movies.Death, Marvel chief Kevin Feige has offered up a few details about the Wakandan’s role in the threequel, and why they decided to introduce him in the movie.

“[Black Panther] is a role that he is still in the beginning phases of taking on, it’s a mantle he is only beginning to take on because his father is older… »

Fan-art: The Fight For 'Spider-Man' Begins In Captain America: Civil War Poster

30 June 2015 6:16 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

Kevin Feige outlines Black Panther's key role in Captain America: Civil War

30 June 2015 4:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin Feige has revealed details of the key role Black Panther will play in Captain America: Civil War.

Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa will feature opposite Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) and Captain America (Chris Evans) to offer a "very different point of view" to the movie's events.

The Marvel Studios president also revealed that he will only recently have taken on the mantle of Black Panther.

"It is a role that he is still in the beginning phases of taking on," Feige told Birth Movies Death. "It's a mantle he is only beginning to take on because his father is older."

Boseman will debut in the film which - if it follows the thrust of the Civil War comic - will see Tony Stark and Steve Rogers going to war over their conflicting views of superheroes' roles in America.

Kevin Feige promises Civil War will be a “Captain America movie”, teases Hulk appearance

30 June 2015 2:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the announcement of the massive cast of Captain America: Civil War (that includes the likes of Iron Man, Black Panther, Spider-Man and the rest of the New Avengers), many fans were starting to worry that this would not be a “Captain America movie”. Well fear not, because Kevin Feige is putting those worries to rest.

“Certainly at the end of Civil War it’s a whole new ball game,” Feige told io9. “What’s fun about Civil War though is, as you know from the comics, it’s a very simple story. And it really has to be, to accommodate that many players. It’s very much a Captain America movie and it’s very much a sequel to The Winter Soldier in ways I don’t think people [will expect]…. It’s a very simple structure that allows you to have these amazing character interactions in a way that I don’t think becomes overwhelming. »

Tom Hiddleston’s ‘I Saw the Light’ to Open Nov. 27

29 June 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Slates 'I Saw the Light' for Awards Slot, Tom Hiddleston Looking for First Nom

29 June 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Sony Pictures Classics has dated Marc Abraham's I Saw the Light for a Nov. 27 release, which all but guarantees an Oscar push for the film and most likely a big push for Tom Hiddleston who stars in the feature as legendary country western singer Hank Williams. The pic is now slotted alongside fellow Oscar hopeful The Danish Girl, though both films will probably be looking to make a big splash on the Fall film festival circuit, already establishing an awards season narrative before the general public lays their eyes on either of them. The pic, which also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Bradley Whitford, David Krumholtz and Cherry Jones, chronicles Williams' meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life. Hiddleston is probably best known to most as Loki from The Avengers film franchise, but 2015 is looking to be a year where he makes a »

William Hurt Teases “Much Different” General Ross In Captain America: Civil War

25 June 2015 11:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As soon as it was revealed that the third Captain America film would follow the beloved “Civil War” storyline, everyone understood the incredible magnitude of the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed tentpole. Civil War is essentially an Avengers-sized event, complete with dozens of familiar faces from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and the entire Avengers lineup formed at the end of Age of Ultron. Even more surprising was another announcement: that William Hurt would be reprising the role of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, last seen in The Incredible Hulk (not really considered canon in the McU given Edward Norton’s quick ouster from the title role).

Nevertheless, Hurt is getting back into uniform to play Ross, who will again be on the trail of the Hulk as the Civil War heats up – though the actor has told IGN that fans can expect to see a very »

Iron Man actress Leslie Bibb teases return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe

25 June 2015 12:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Leslie Bibb, the actress who played reporter Christine Everhart in Iron Man and Iron Man 2, has just teased her imminent return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe via Instagram:

Bibb didn’t specify which Marvel project she’s working on, but Captain America: Civil War is the only one currently filming, so that’s likely the best bet. In the comics, her character was actually a reporter for the Daily Bugle, but her occupation was changed to Vanity Fair reporter for the McU because, at the time, Marvel didn’t have access to Peter Parker’s famed employer. Now that they do, perhaps Everhart will be working where she truly belongs? We shall see…

Directed by Anthony and Joe RussoCaptain America: Civil War will hit theaters on May 6, 2016.

Tom Holland is officially suiting up as Spider-Man for Captain America: Civil War.

The British actor was announced as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's new webslinger on Tuesday (June 23), winning out over contenders like Asa Butterfield, Nat Wolff and Freddie Highmore.

Marvel executive Kevin Feige has now told The Hollywood Reporter that Holland will imminently be joining Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr and Scarlett Johansson on Civil War's Georgia set.

Civil War will find the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe divided when politicians try to reign in their power with a governing body.

This will be Marvel's most star-studded movie yet, as franchise veterans Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Rudd reprise their heroic characters.

Aside from the debut of Spider-Man, Captain America: Civil War also introduces Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther and Daniel Brühl as the devious Baron Zemo.

Spider-Man will only have a small cameo in Captain America: Civil War

24 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After the news that Tom Holland (The Impossible) would be our new Peter Parker/Spider-Man (having beaten 1500 other actors and screen tested with Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans), we’ve also got a small bit of news about the character’s role in Captain America: Civil War.

Variety are reporting that Holland will only have a small role in the movie, which is why Marvel and Sony were not quick to cast Holland now that Captain America: Civil War is currently in production. Futhermore, the publication also notes that Holland will shoot for about a week on the movie, which will likely be sooner rather than later.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Watch the Cast of The Overnight Play “Save or Kill”

17 June 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Make no mistake, writer/director Patrick Bryce’s The Overnight is one of the weirdest comedies I’ve seen in a while. It has a simple premise—a married couple (played by Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling) has recently moved to a new town and is looking for a playmate for their young son. They come across another couple (Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche) who seem warm and inviting, but a simple dinner between the two families becomes much more awkward as the evening winds on. Trust me, the conversations and events that transpire are not the regular things you see in “Hollywood” movies and you will definitely be talking about the film after it ends. For more on The Overnight, watch the green or red band trailers. At the recent press day I asked Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Judith Godrèche, and Jason Schwartzman to play “Save or Kill”. If »

Watch Inside Out’s Bill Hader Play “Save or Kill”

16 June 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’m a huge fan of Bill Hader. Not only can he do amazing impressions that make me laugh out loud, over the past few years he’s proven again and again that he’s an extremely talented actor that can handle drama and comedy with ease. In Pixar’s masterpiece Inside Out, which opens this weekend, Hader voices the character Fear and as you might expect, does a fantastic job. Trust me, Inside Out is a special movie that you want to see in a theater. At the press day for the film, I landed an exclusive video interview with Hader. In the coming days I’ll post the full conversation, but today I wanted to share him playing “Save or Kill.” If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value.

Mark Ruffalo says Robert Downey, Jr. says he's in 'Captain America: Civil War' so...

Are you over your "Age of Ultron" hangover?  Well, get excited True Believers because filming is already well underway on Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War."  The sequel has becoming highly anticipated not just because its following up one of one of the studio's most critically acclaimed productions, "Captain America: Winter Soldier," but because it may end up being an unintentional mini-"Avengers" movie.   Since it was announced late last year, "Civil War" has been pitched as a Steve Rogers vs. Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) endeavor and a press release from the production specifically noted that Avengers such as the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), the Vision (Paul Bettany), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and War Machine (Don Cheadle) would appear in the film.  That's a lot of Earth's Mightiest Heroes for a "Captain America" movie so no one would have assumed the lack of Thor or »

Mark Ruffalo on Hulk in Captain America: Civil War

14 June 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Could we be seeing The Hulk reappear in Captain America 3? Mark Ruffalo's not been told yet, if we are...

What's shaping up to effectively be the third Avengers movie, Captain America: Civil War is now well into production. Chris Evans headlines a cast that already includes Robert Downey Jr, Chadwick Boseman, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Martin Freeman, Daniel Bruhl, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle and Elizabeth Olsen (breathes out). But might there be room for Mark Ruffalo to reappear as Hulk?

Well, possibly.

The rumour that Hulk will turn up in the film has been swirling for a little while now, and The Daily Beast has asked actor Mark Ruffalo about it. At first, his comments are not that revealing. "I don't know", he told the site. "I heard a rumour about that the other day".

He added that "I haven't seen a script, »
