The first clip has been released from co-writer/director Jonathan Levine’s upcoming Christmas comedy, The Night Before. The movie reunites the filmmaker with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Walk) and Seth Rogen (The Interview) after they teamed up for 50/50, with Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Age of Ultron) joining them.
In The Night Before, Ethan, Isaac and Chris have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties. Lizzy Caplan, Michael Shannon, and Mindy Kaling also star in the movie.

Following the final poster that star Jennifer Lawrence shared yesterday, Lionsgate has released the first clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, in theaters November 20. If that wasn't enough, Entertainment Weekly has released the cover for this week's print issue, which features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Liam Hemsworth as Gale and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, along with eight new photos. The clip gives us a tiny taste of life in District 13, although it does bring some unexpected changes for Katniss.
The clip shows Katniss reuniting with Finnick (Sam Claflin), before they are joined by their new commanding officer, Boggs (Mahershala Ali), who has special orders for Katniss, Gale and Finnick. Cressida (Natalie Dormer) reveals that they will all be the "on-screen faces" of this war against The Capitol, since it has been decided that they are more effective when seen by the masses. This scene also gives us a new look at Lt. »
“I think Spider-Man can serve great purpose in our universe and that’s where he belongs,” said Feige. “That was what was unique about him in the comics was not that he was the only superhero in the world; it’s that he was a totally different kind of superhero when compared against all the other ones in the Marvel universe at the time.”
Sony will partner up with Marvel to bring the studio’s flagship superhero, portrayed by Tom Holland, to the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” next year. This Spidey appearance will introduce Holland to audiences before his standalone debut as the web-slinger in July, 2017.
Since the Marvel-Sony deal became official in February, Feige said that »

With its rather large roster of characters, many worry that Captain America: Civil War will make the titular character a secondary player in his own movie. Despite making claims about this not being the case already, Kevin Feige has reiterated that Captain America: Civil War is a Captain America movie.
“It is very much Cap’s story,” Feige told guests at an Avengers: Age of Ultron home entertainment release party. “It’s very much a sequel to The Winter Soldier. As that conflict builds, it is represented as a conflict between Cap and Tony.”
“There’s a lot of characters in The Winter Soldier, but it still felt like a very singular and relatively simple thrill ride,” he adds. “Cap, in Civil War, follows very much that same way. That something that we pride ourselves on. Our screenwriters — Chris Markus and Stephen McFeely — are excellent at giving each character just enough. »

Long before Avengers: Age of Ultron hit theaters, there were rumors that the Marvel Phase Two sequel would introduce Captain Marvel, although the character had not been cast yet. Just a few weeks before the release, producer Kevin Feige confirmed that Captain Marvel was in fact in an earlier version of the script, but they felt the time wasn't right to introduce her yet. If the studio had gone forward with introducing Carol Danvers, she would have appeared at the very end, in a scene where fans first meet the new Avengers, but executive producer Jeremy Latcham offered some more context as to why that didn't happen, during a Q&A session attended by Collider. He explains what the original ending should have been.
"In really early development there was a notion of there'd be a ton of new people. And then it was like, 'Well we haven't really introduced them, »
There is a lot of speculation that Chris Evans' Steve Rogers will be killed off in Captain America: Civil War, because that's what happens in the Marvel Comics. Some believe that either Anthony Mackie's Falcon or Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes will pick up the shield and carry on the mantel of Captain America, because both of those scenarios also happen in the Marvel Comics upon which the film is based. While he wouldn't confirm any of that, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige has confirmed that Captain America: Civil War will be the end of a trilogy that started with Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011 and was carried through in last year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Ever since Captain America: Civil War was announced, people have wondered how closely it will follow the Marvel comics. Not very, with the Superhero Registration Act getting turned into the Sokovia Accords. »
"Avengers? Assemble." Ok, so the quote got cut off as Joss Whedon brought his Avengers: Age of Ultron to a close, but the sentiment was there. Captain America (Chris Evans) looked out over his new team, which included Vision (Paul Bettany), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). But that now-famous scene was supposed to have a Lot more Marvel faces in it, and we.re finally finding out why the studio pulled back at the last minute. We have reported in the past that Captain Marvel and Quicksilver were options for the revamped roster at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. During a recent Blu-ray event held on behalf of Age of Ultron, though, Marvel Studios exec Jeremy Latcham said (via Collider) that the plan was always supposed to be bigger. then explained why it wasn.t. He said: »
Captain America: Civil War is basically Avengers: 2.5. That.s what Anthony Mackie said of the third installment, and the evidence supports that. Though Marvel reiterates that this is indeed a Captain America movie, nearly every major Marvel hero will be popping up with the exception of Thor and Hulk. However, Kevin Feige recently revealed that, even with all this incredible talent, the film won.t feel like an Avengers in-betweener. IGN caught up with the president of Marvel Studios to talk about the McU moving forward. As Feige explained, The Winter Soldier was another movie that had a lot of characters, and that film was more of a confined thriller than an Avengers-level event. Though, to play devil.s advocate, The Winter Soldier doesn.t have anywhere near as many major McU characters as Civil War will have. To further combat the film.s scale, Feige said, Our screenwriters Chris »
Starring Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie, the film centers on three longtime friends deciding to party one last time on Christmas Eve to mark the conclusion of their 14-year-old holiday tradition — started due to the death of the mother of Gordon-Leveitt’s character — since Rogen’s character is about to become a father and Mackie’s pro-athlete character is too famous.
A redband trailer showed comic chaos resulting when Rogen’s wife, played by Jillian Bell, decides to give her husband magic mushrooms and cocaine. That leads to him barfing in a church while wearing a Star of David sweater and then declaring to the congregation, “We did not kill Jesus!”

Anthony Mackie is one of the few ethnic actors to portray a superhero. As The Falcon, Mackie has now appeared in Captain America: Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and Ant-Man. And while he will soon be joined by Chadwick Boseman.s The Black Panther, Mackie is adamant that isn.t enough and more ethnic superheroes need to be blazoned up on the big screen. Mackie discussed the need for racial diversity at the Salt Lake Comic Con on Saturday evening, explaining that he believes the addition of more ethnic actors in these films will help children understand race more. According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Mackie declared: I feel like kids don.t get race . We preach so much to kids that you can be anything you want to be, and then we follow it with .except,. and we have to leave that .except. off. During this discussion, Anthony »
We’ve been asked to reconsider our enjoyment of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron in the wake of the corporate shuffling that sees Kevin Feige reign supreme. Scuttlebutt has it the film was a disappointment to Walt Disney but one has to wonder how a global box office take of $1.4 billion (as of this weekend) can be a disappointment. Shot with a mammoth $250 million budget, the film needed to earn only about $800 million to be profitable (before licensing and ancillary revenue) so it has to be a financial success.
A critical success is something else. According to Rotten Tomatoes, it is 74% fresh although audiences liked it 86% of the time. Now yes, it is far lower than the 92% the first Avengers film did, but let’s face it, nothing like that had ever been tried on film and it worked beyond anyone’s expectations.
And the expectations were incredibly high »

This coming spring, Marvel will be asking us to choose a side as Phase Three of the McU kicks off with a bang with Captain America: Civil War, and taking part in a Q&A at the Edmonton Comic Expo, comic book legend Stan Lee has revealed whether his allegiance lies with Captain America or Iron Man.
“Whatever side Captain America was on, because he’s the best, pure-hearted person in the whole world,” said Lee (via Cbr). “By the way, he’s a great actor, too, the guy who plays Captain America does a beautiful job — Chris Evans. I say that because he likes me, and anyone who likes me is a great actor.”
Whose side are you on? Let us know in the comments below…

For those of you familiar with the Civil War comic book, you’ll know that it ends with Captain America surrendering himself to the authorities and later being assassinated by Crossbones (and Sharon Carter, but that’s where things get complicated, as everything from mind control to time travel are involved). Before Steve Rogers inevitably returned, Bucky took over the mantle, and fans are now anxious to know whether the same will apply in the McU.
Of course, with Captain America: Civil War looking like a fairly loose adaptation of Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s event story and Chris Evans expected to return for Avengers: Infinity War, Sebastian Stan taking over could be some time away from happening, but there’s also a chance that Marvel skips Bucky altogether and passes the mantle to Anthony Mackie’s Falcon instead.
