Over the past few days we’ve had confirmation of a number of stars for the currently-in-production Avengers 4 – including Don Cheadle (War Machine), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier) and Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) – and now Hayley Atwell has sparked speculation that she could be set for a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Peggy Carter.
Atwell shared the following image to her Instagram account, complete with curlers in her hair and tracking dots across her face…
Given Marvel’s penchant for digitally de-aging and aging its stars using CGI, it’s possible that Atwell is teasing playing an older version of Peggy. Adding further fuel to the fire is a recent casting call for Avengers: Infinity War, which was seeking secretaries and female engineers for a small scene believed to take place in the 1960s. Of course, this may be for another project entirely, but with the scenes in »

Even though it won’t be released until April 2018, talk regarding the next Avengers movie is as prevalent as ever. Every man and his dog wants to know just what to expect from what will likely be one of the biggest blockbusters ever made, and this is just what Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, says to expect.
Speaking to Digital Spy, the English actor said: “It’s ten years coming. It’s just a huge, huge, huge amount of work, huge amount of storylines and it’s all sort of pointing to this confrontation….It’s amazing to be part of it even though I’m late to the party, it’s very cool to be part of it.”
So, not much there from Cumberbatch in terms of details or juicy plot spoilers but it’s good »

Over the past few days we’ve heard confirmation that Chris Evans (Captain America), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) and Don Cheadle (War Machine) are all set to feature in the currently-in-production Avengers 4, and now Sebastian Stan has revealed that he’ll also be back as The Winter Soldier in the currently untitled sequel.
“I still haven’t read a script for this next one,” Stan told CinemaBlend. “For this fourth one. All I know is I’m going down there in October, and that’s all I know. I still actually haven’t read a script for the last one. All I knew was what I was involved in, and I was kept on a very ‘need to know’ basis. Maybe that’s the norm. But it’s a family system. There’s a trust, and there’s a sense of knowledge between the writers and the directors, with Kevin Feige, »

Avengers: Infinity War is still a good few months away from release, but Avengers 4 is already underway with several actors already confirming that they have been on set. One such actress is Gwyneth Paltrow — who plays Tony’s eternal flame Pepper Potts — and the actress recently let slip the return of another major character for the fourth Avengers film. Chatting with THR, Paltrow spilled the beans:
“I went to Atlanta to do Avengers 4, so I’m in and out for that, and it’s weird to go back and forth. We’re growing fast, and balls are dropping all the time. But honestly, I was on set and thought, “You sit here for two hours sipping tea, Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle are making me laugh hysterically — why the hell did I give this up?”

Paul Bettany has taken to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes photo shot by Mark Ruffalo on the set of Avengers 4, which sees Bettany in full Vision costume, complete with reading glasses, as he takes care of some paperwork…
Interestingly, Vision still seems to be in possession of the Mind Stone, which Thanos would presumably need to have acquired in Avengers: Infinity War in order to complete his Infinity Gauntlet. So, does that mean the Mad Titan is yet to acquire all of the Infinity Stones by Avengers 4, or has he already been defeated?

Marvel illustrator Ryan Meinerding has once again taken to Instagram to share some of his stunning Marvel Studios concept artwork, this time offering up an image of Captain America and the Howling Commandos, which he originally produced for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and has since become the Cap artwork used in the opening logo sequence for Marvel Studios; check it out here…
Captain America will next be seen reuniting with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to do battle against Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, which is set to open and will feature an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Paul Bettany (Vision), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel »

By all accounts, Avengers: Infinity War is shaping up to be a mega movie, featuring multiple characters from across the entire spectrum of the McU, and culminating in a battle for the ages. The stakes seem to be raised considerably this time around and from what we hear, it seems like it’s going to be bigger and bigger.
One character that has had a huge part to play in the Captain America trilogy and will continue as Cap’s right hand man in Infinity War is childhood friend Bucky, a.k.a. brainwashed assassin, Winter Soldier. Portrayed by Sebastian Stan, it appears the odds are stacked against the potential future Captain America, as he faces Thanos and his legions.
Speaking with MTV, Stan likened his character to Game of Thrones‘ Jon Snow, stating that: “I feel a lot like that Jon Snow character [in] ‘Battle of the Bastards. When there »

It’s been rumoured that Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers will taking on the mantle of Nomad in Avengers: Infinity War, and now McU Exchange is reporting that another of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will be taking on a new persona in the currently-in-production Avengers 4, with Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton said to be swapping his bow for a sword as the character takes on the identity of the masterless samurai Ronin.

According to the site, “the events of Avengers: Infinity War (one specific event in particular) leaves Barton in a Very dark place and is the inciting moment in the archer’s shift into this darker superhero mantle” It’s not to difficult to take a good guess at what that could be referring to…

Having shot on location in Edinburgh and Glasgow for Avengers: Infinity War, The Daily Record is reporting that Marvel Studios is heading back to Scotland to film scenes for the currently-in-production – and as-yet-untitled – Avengers 4.
“A second Avengers film is penciled in for filming in Scotland in 2018,” states the newspaper’s source. “People have been put on standby for another movie next year. It won’t be until July because the Infinity War premiere is around May and all the cast will be tied up doing promo for that for a month. It’s exciting news that people behind something as big as Avengers want to come back to shoot another film here. This is a fantastic boost for the Scottish film industry.”

“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.
The seasons are starting to mix as summer makes way towards fall. Sprinkled amongst the Hollywood blockbusters this September are five Toronto International Film Festival selections (not to mention Venice and Telluride)—some hitting your local cinema the week after they debut. And the coming months are only bringing more (as well as some holdovers from last fall such as The Limehouse Golem opening in limited release September 8).
Choose your selections wisely as some of what’s coming may still be talked about at the Oscars in 2018 while »

Next year sees Marvel assembling (almost) all of the heroes of the McU to do battle against Thanos in the hugely-anticipated superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War, which means that for the first time we’ll be seeing Earth’s Mightiest Heroes sharing the screen with the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Speaking to Yahoo! to promote the release of his new movie Bushwick, Dave Bautista has teased this team-up between the Avengers and the Guardians, and in particular the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord.
“I’m excited about some of the stuff we did, but I don’t know what’s going to make it in the film,” said Bautista. “I always thought there would be a lot of good interaction between Tony Stark and Drax, and there was. And Star-Lord and Tony Stark as well. When you put those two guys in a room together, »

Action star Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to acting has seen mixed responses over the past few years, whether it's the entertaining yet under-appreciated - The Last Stand - or the disappointing (David Ayer's chaotic murder-mystery action thriller, Sabotage).
Here's hoping Arnold's latest movie, the comedy-thriller Killing Gunther, will see him back on surer ground. Schwarzenegger plays an ageing yet effective assassin whose contract killer fraternity turns on him. With a small army of death experts out to collect the bounty, Arnold )sorry Gunther) is forced into action.
Killing Gunther's evidently a smaller affair than the movies Schwarzenegger was making at the height of his career - but this isn't necessarily a bad thing, given the faux-documentary style. This is the directorial debut »
Directed by actor-turned-director Taran Killam (who also wrote the movie), Killing Gunther stars Schwarzenegger as the titular Gunther, the world's best hitman but also the most loathed by fellow professionals in the murder-for-hire industry. As such, a group of eccentric assassins decide its time to take Gunter out but one after the other, they fumble the job and Gunter always seems to come out on top. Comedy ensues. Or is supposed to ensue. I'm not convinced it actually does.

"You want to be king, you have to kill the king." Saban Films has debuted the official trailer for the action comedy titled Killing Gunther, starring the one-and-only badass Arnold Schwarzenegger as Gunther. This looks hilarious and much better than any of the other self-parody work Schwarzenegger has done recently. The plot is about a group of eccentric assassins who are fed up with Gunther, the world's greatest hitman, so they come up with a scheme to kill him. But of course Gunther turns out to always be one step ahead. Along with Schwarzenegger, the film features Cobie Smulders, Hannah Simone, Taran Killam, Allison Tolman, Aaron Yoo, Peter Kelamis, Alex Duncan, Amir Talai, and Bobby Moynihan. Seriously, this looks pretty damn amazing, the kind of action comedy we need more of. I'm so down for this. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Taran Killam's Killing Gunther, found direct »

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been back in the acting game for a handful of years now since he retired as Governor of California. Despite a whole lot of trying, he hasn't really added another classic movie to his resume. It looks like Killing Gunther might finally be the movie. Saban Films has released the first trailer for Killing Gunther, which sees Schwarzenegger having an absolute blast in an action/comedy that could be a complete surprise for those who want to see the man back in classic form.
Trailers Promos Teasers brings us the first teaser trailer for Killing Gunther, which was written and directed by Saturday Night Live alum Taran Killam. This serves as his directorial debut, which is actually going to implement a mockumentary style to take us through this journey, which sees a whole bunch of funny people trying to kill Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays Gunther. As one might expect, »
Given that the title character is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, there’s a good chance that Gunther isn’t actually killed in “Killing Gunther.” Taran Killam’s new action/comedy provides an opportunity for the Governator to restore his former cinematic glory in a way that “Terminator Genisys” and “Maggie” didn’t; one hopes that it works out this time. Watch the film’s trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis for the film, which looks set to tap into Arnold’s comic abilities: “‘Killing Gunther’ tells the story of Gunther (Schwarzenegger), the world’s greatest hitman. There are plenty of reasons to want to kill him: he’s arrogant, he’s a show-off, and he steals jobs. The assassin community is tired of it. Determined to retire Gunther for good, a group of »
