Dominic Cooper Will Return As Howard Stark In Agent Carter

30 September 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While there was never any real reason to seriously doubt that he would do so, it’s now been made official that Dominic Cooper will return as Howard Stark in Marvel’s upcoming Agent Carter TV series. Cooper first played the Stark family patriarch in Captain America: The First Avenger and had a cameo role in last year’s Agent Carter One-Shot short film.

Marvel announced the news early Tuesday morning, but did not include any indication of how large Cooper’s role will be. My guess is that he’ll be a recurring character on the series, thanks to his involvement in the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the inclusion of “secret missions” that the titular Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) will be tasked by Stark to accomplish.

Tell us, are you excited to see Dominic Cooper don the mustache of Howard Stark once more? Let us know in the comments below. »

Watch the Agent Carter and Howling Commandos Cameo from Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

25 September 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you’re still watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (and judging by the negligible ratings change from the season one finale to the season two premiere, you’re in this for the long-haul), then you caught a preview of Marvel’s next TV series Agent Carter earlier this week during the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season two premiere.  A flashback sequence during the episode featured a cameo from Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter as well as the Howling Commandos, as the group raided a Hydra outpost and obtained a MacGuffin object of sorts.  I was not a fan of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but I’m curious to check out Agent Carter when it premieres due to its period setting and the involvement of screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.  My hope is that Agent Carter doesn’t just feel like a S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff and is able to »

James D’Arcy Will Play Jarvis in Marvel’s Agent Carter TV Series

16 September 2014 4:49 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marvel Studios’ second foray into network television, the ABC series Agent Carter, is poised to start production soon, but the show has just now added a key cast member.  Variety reports that Cloud Atlas actor James D’Arcy has signed on to play Howard Stark’s Butler Jarvis—yes, that Jarvis—in the period spy drama.  D’Arcy will bring flesh and blood to what is likely the basis for Tony Stark’s virtual butler in the McU, though that’s due to change in Avengers: Age of Ultron when the movie Jarvis (voiced by Paul Bettany) takes on the form of The Vision.  More on Agent Carter after the jump.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-Ray Review

15 September 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-Ray Review

The Captain America franchise is a somewhat strange creature among the other features included in the recent trend toward kicking out tons of comic book films. They are films born mostly out of the desire to get The Avengers off the ground, and create possibilities for crossovers. Unlike most other comic adaptations, especially going back a few years, this is a franchise fighting the uphill battle of its main character not having a host of fans to claim. Despite that stumbling block, the first film was one of the better action films to come along in a while.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier does a lot of things very well, and infuses new twists on developing the character, but it shrugs off much of what made the first film so interesting and entertaining in favor of spectacle, and the result is a film that isn’t terrible, »

37 Things We Learned from the ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Commentary

11 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

One of the biggest hits of the year so far has been Captain America: The Winter Soldier, making it a bigger success than the first film. It helps that it follows up The Avengers and cross-pollinates with other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, what also helped it along was a fresh story that was less of a gee-whiz superhero film and more inspired by the conspiracy thrillers of the 1970s. Now that the film has been released on home video, the directors and writers have sat down and dissected it in their commentary track, available on the Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray. (Sorry, folks… the DVD does not have the commentary on it, so you’ll have to spring for a Blu-ray player if you want to listen. But, seriously, why don’t you have a Blu-ray player already? You do? Thought so. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) Commentators: Anthony Russo (co-director), Joe Russo (co-director), Christopher Markus »

"Captain America 3" Changes The Game Again

9 September 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" hitting Blu-ray today, co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo have been doing their final press rounds and talked up the next film in the series.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Spoilers Ahead

Specifically they say the next film is set to change the game for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the way that "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" did with its reveal of Hydra and implosion of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the process.

Yet, while the Hydra reveal was a twist kept right up until the film itself, it seems the still to be announced title of the next film will give a big indication as to what effect the next film in the series will have on the movies in its wake. Joe Russo tells Crave Online:

"The big thing we knew we had to deal with in Captain America 2 was the fall of Hydra. »

Captain America 3 directors say that Kevin Feige has had the title in place for years

9 September 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier shifting the landscape of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D., it seems that directors Anthony and Joe Russo are planning an event of similar proportions for 2016’s Captain America 3, with the duo stating that there’s a “very, very big idea” at the heart of the threequel during a promotional interview for the home-entertainment release of The Winter Soldier.

“If you’ve been talking to Kevin Feige, the title [for Captain America 3] has been in place probably for ten years in his brain,” Joe tells Crave Online. “It’s all part of the road map that he’s laid out, and it’s all part of the bigger plan. I think the way Kevin does it is there are big pieces that he knows he wants to build towards, but the way that you get there is open to interpretation and improv a little bit. »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier co-director details Hawkeye’s deleted sequence

2 September 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week Jeremy Renner suggested that he could be set to follow-up his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron with another outing as Hawkeye in 2016′s Captain America 3; however, as it happened, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely had planned to include the archer in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with Renner’s schedule ultimately preventing him from appearing. Now, during an interview with Screen Rant, co-director Joe Russo has detailed just exactly how Hawkeye would have figured into this year’s Phase Two solo sequel:

What it was going to be, we were trying to complicate the relationship between Cap and his S.H.I.E.L.D agent friends. If Hawkeye got a call from S.H.I.E.L.D saying Captain America is a fugitive, would he listen to that call or not listen to that call? That sequence actually was heartbreaking for us to cut it. »

Hawkeye’s Cut Sequence in ‘Captain America 2′ Revealed

2 September 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Poor Hawkeye. Marvel’s greatest archer can’t seem to catch a break in the film franchise. From a cameo appearance in Thor and a zombified role in The Avengers to not even making the cut for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Jeremy Renner has long talked about his desire to play the Hawkeye (real name: Clint Barton) he signed on for years ago, and in next year’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, he’ll be finally getting some spotlight attention. Rumor has it, he might even be a key part of Captain America 3 in 2016.

He almost had a part in this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier as we learned from writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely but his role was minor and ...
