Next month, Marvel Studios will start production on Avengers: Infinity War, which is expected to bring the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe together. While no cast list has been released yet, it wouldn't be surprising if every established character in the McU will come together to defeat Thanos. Over the weekend, two McU stars, Michael Douglas and Jeremy Renner, hit the links together for a charity golf tournament, where they spoke about the possibility of meeting on the big screen.
Jeremy Renner was first introduced in a cameo appearance in Thor, before starring in The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron and this year's Captain America: Civil War. Micahel Douglas is a relative newcomer to the McU, having only starred in last year's Ant-Man, but he told The Content Factory on the World Celebrity Pro-Am on the Chinese island of Hainan that he would love to team up with Jeremy Renner's »
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is always evolving and changing, and in just a few weeks, fans will finally get to see a more mystical side to the McU when Doctor Strange hits theaters on November 4. Phase 3 will culminate with Avengers: Infinity War and the currently untitled Avengers Sequel. During a press conference for Doctor Strange, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased that a comic book group dubbed the Illuminati may be formed in the McU very soon.
Kevin Feige was part of a press conference that Marvel held today at the Doctor Strange junket, where he dropped a surprising revelation that the Illuminati characters will come together in Avengers: Infinity War. While he didn't mention any specific characters, Doctor Strange is a key member of the Illuminati in the comics, along with Iron Man, which could mean that Robert Downey Jr.'s beloved character may join forces with Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange. »
As we get closer and closer to Avengers: Infinity War starting production next month, new details are starting to surface about this highly-anticipated production. Directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo have teased that there will be upwards of 67 characters in this massive adventure, although we haven't gotten a full cast list quite yet. Many have wondered if one of these characters will be Spider-Man, who made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in this year's Captain America: Civil War, and it seems that there may be a deal in the works for this beloved character to return in Infinity War. While promoting his new film The Lost City of Z at the New York Film Festival, Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, teased that it may happen, but nothing is set in stone.
"It's all up in the air. I believe some sort of deal is in the mix, but I'm unclear as to what that deal is. »
Review by Brandon Krzysztof
Films are being released in clusters lately each Tuesday and September 13th continues that trend with Captain America: Civil War, one of many sequels released that day. It’s safe to say this was the most anticipated new release of the week. It was released on Steelbook at Best Buy, which was an exclusive. It also had a 3D version with a beautiful slip cover and a standard version without a slip cover which I believe was very weak for the price; it had no digital HD to go with no slip cover for $19.99.
I saw Captain America: Civil War twice in theaters; once in IMAX 3D on opening night and a second time which was a standard showing later that weekend. »

Disclaimer: This article contains spoilers for Captain America: Civil War.
Captain America: Civil War was a film that was full of surprises. From the interesting political questions it posed, to the believable personal struggles and fantastic battles, it was a flick that delivered on almost every front. Of course, one of the big scenes often talked about is the airport scene, wherein the Avengers faced off against one another in an epic, 17-minute long fight.
The battle could've been a bore. 17 minutes is a lot of time to spend on the fight, but the writers and directors, Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and Russo Brothers, respectively, were careful to give the fight a three-act structure. So instead of mindless fighting, there was a true feeling of progression throughout.
Bringing up the tail end of the second act of that fight, they needed one final game-changing twist to take things to the »

The Russo Brothers made headlines earlier this year when they revealed that their upcoming Avengers: Infinity War featured a whopping 67 characters. They have also stated that this highly-anticipated movie will unite the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, but fans have wondered if that will include the TV characters such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, along with ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. With production about to begin in a few months, the Russos recently revealed they aren't ruling out any Marvel characters quite yet.
Back in May, the filmmakers teased in an interview that they're more focused on the characters on the movie side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but they are "certainly considering" using the Marvel TV characters. In a new interview with The Toronto Sun, the filmmakers reiterated that they're still considering using the Marvel TV characters, but they won't confirm any details quite yet. »
With production starting on the highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War later this year, it seems the rehearsal process has begun, with the Russo Brothers sending out the first set photo with Thanos himself, Josh Brolin. The directors are seen interacting with their star, who is wearing a full motion capture suit. The actor is seen sitting on a platform, but we don't know exactly what was being rehearsed quite yet.
The photo was posted by the Russo's on Facebook, and while it doesn't give us a look at what Thanos will look like on the big screen, at least we know rehearsals are under way. Earlier this summer, the VFX house Ironhead Studio released the first look at Thanos in the Infinity War movies, but that look may still be tweaked between now and the May 4, 2018 release date. Hopefully the Russo Brothers will keep posting photos from various rehearsal sessions with Thanos until filming begins. »

Captain America: Civil War set the box office on fire and now arrives on Blu-ray with a healthy set of bonus features that will keep Marvel Cinematic Universe fans content until the next McU movie arrives. Hope everyone is enjoying this golden age of superhero movies.
Civil wars tend to inflame passions, even ones involving fictional worlds. Just ask my nine-year-old son, who left a showing of Captain America: Civil War furious at Iron Man’s actions toward Captain America. He couldn’t understand how Iron Man could treat Captain America that way and was so mad that he still refuses to see »

A few thoughts on where Avengers: Infinity War can go - and how X-Men can help...
You have to feel both simultaneous envy and sympathy when it comes to Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Current darlings of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after their feted screenwriting duties on the Captain America trilogy, they’ve now been given the herculean task of nailing a story and screenplay for the forthcoming Avengers: Infinity War, a two-part culmination of three phases worth of McU build-up.
On the one hand: what a treat to be given license to play around in that sandbox; to have access to all those incredible characters; to conceive the greatest battle the Avengers will face thus far as Thanos finally makes his play.
On the other hand: how the hell are they going to pull this off?
Because it’s not just about tying up all those »
For movie fans, even after the emergence of digital downloads, there have been plenty of reasons to opt for the DVD instead: actually owning your media and getting to display your movie collection on your own shelves but also all those featurettes that you got on the DVD but not the digital download. Now, 10 years after movie downloads became available on the iTunes Store, there are select titles with bonus content — including Captain America: Civil War, which gets its digital release tomorrow. Civil War, in fact, boasts a lot of bonus content and a first for iTunes: The menu features video clips from the film, like a contemporary DVD or Blu-ray would, instead of the traditional static screen on iTunes. As DVD and Blu-ray sales decline while streaming options rise in popularity, media companies will have to find new ways to entice consumers with titles they can purchase. Getting all »

Take a look @ more deleted footage from the upcoming "Captain America: Civil War" Blu-ray release, available September 2016:
"But 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..."

It was officially announced last week by Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo that Steve Rogers is giving up the shield in Avengers 3. When this happened in the comic books, both the Winter Solider and Falcon assumed Cap's superhero identity. Many believe it will be Bucky Barnes who picks up the red, white and blue mantle moving forward in the McU. Now, we know what that might look like.
Fan art extraordinaire Boss Logic has come through once again with images that depict Bucky in the star spangle costume usually worn by Steve Rogers. There are three variations on this look. The first is the most traditional, while the second image lets the Avenger go unmask. The third image gives us a fine mix of Captain America's signature look with the Winter Solider's iconic movie costume first seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. »
The smash hit of the summer — Captain America: Civil War — is headed to home video this fall. When friend turns against friend, everyone must choose a side. Even if they only met two of the Avengers vaguely in passing while robbing their facility blind. In an exclusive clip above, Paul Rudd talks about joining the cast of Civil War and how little his character’s reaction to meeting Captain America differed from his own. Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War arrives early on Digital HD, Digital 3D and Disney Movies Anywhere on September 2, 2016 and on Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on September 13, 2016. Each version will come packed full of bonus material. Over an hour in combined length, fans will be able to watch behind-the-scenes exclusives such as the making of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. Also included will be deleted scenes and the perennial favorite — the gag reel. »

Long before Marvel had sussed out its negotiations with Robert Downey Jr. for Captain America: Civil War – the actor’s McU contract was set to expire just before the blockbuster sequel entered production – directors Joe and Anthony Russo were left mapping out alternate storylines for their Winter Soldier follow-up. And it seems those early brainstorming sessions veered into bizarre territory.
Case in point: If Downey Jr. was unable to reprise his role as Marvel’s Iron Man, Steve Roger’s star-spangled hero could well have been going up against zombies in the threequel’s third act – or, as Joe Russo describes, people infected by the Madbomb that displayed all the characteristics of your typical cinematic flesh-muncher.

You may have already gotten this in the not-so-subtle subtext of the ending of Captain America: Civil War, but it definitely wasn't explicit. However, Joe and Anthony Russo — directors of both Civil War and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War — confirmed the shield-passing in an interview with the Huffington Post. Joe Russo confirmed:
"I think him dropping that shield [at the end of Civil War] is him letting go of that identity. [It’s] him admitting that certainly the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making."
Of course, »
Later this year, directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo will start production on Avengers: Infinity War (May 4, 2018), which will be shot back-to-back with another untitled Avengers movie (May 3, 2019).

If you haven't seen Civil War quite yet, there will be Spoilers so read on at your own risk.
In the wake of the game-changing events seen in Captain America: Civil War, many fans have wondered what the status of the titular character’s onscreen mantle may be. Was his dropping of the iconic shield simply done in the heat of the moment or was it a bold statement?
Joe had the following to say:
“I think him dropping that shield is him letting go of that identity. [It’s] him admitting that certainly the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making.”

This summer’s “Captain America: Civil War” showed how to pit superheroes against each other, and do it right (sorry, “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice“). Directors Joe and Anthony Russo, along with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely developed a complex idealogical split between the members of the Avengers, one that isn’t easily solved because […]
