Last week, emails from the Sony hack revealed that Marvel Studios was trying to obtain the rights to Spider-Man, so they could include the character in the highly-anticipated Phase Three adventure Captain America: Civil War. Later that day, another report revealed that deal may still be on the table, and yet another report claimed that Marvel wants to reboot Spidey entirely, which would involve getting rid of current star Andrew Garfield. Today, a new report from Badass Digest reveals that Marvel is currently moving forward on Captain America: Civil War without the web-slinger, for now.
The site notes that there is also the possibility of a cameo or an end credits stinger, since we have nearly a year and a half to go before Captain America 3 hits theaters. Marvel always builds reshoots into their films' schedules, but as it stands right now, Peter Parker will not play a major »
Marvel has released a clip and the synopses for the first two episodes of Agent Carter. The first episode called “Now is Not the End,” and it was written by Captain America: The Winter Solider writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. It was directed by Louis D’Esposito, and here’s the description:
“Peggy is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark when he is framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons and can trust no one else. To help Peggy clear Stark’s name, he insists his butler, Edwin Jarvis, be at her beck and call–whether she likes it or not. But the risk is great: If caught, Agent Carter could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison…or worse.”

It seems as though we have been waiting for Agent Carter forever, but she has almost arrived. The second TV series from Marvel is due to premiere on January 6th, 2015 on ABC, as a seven episode miniseries during Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s hiatus.
Starring Hayley Atwell in the title role, the show will also feature Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokaj, James D’Arcy and Shea Whigham, and is headed up by Captain America writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus.
The official synopsis, from Marvel, is as follows:
“Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), who pledged the same oath, but lived in a different time when women weren’t recognised as being as smart or tough as their male counterparts.
But no one should underestimate Peggy. »

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is officially on winter hiatus, which means the debut of Marvel’s Agent Carter is just around the corner, and now the first Agent Carter clip has landed online. The series follows the character of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) from Captain America: The First Avenger, as she navigates the gender politics of 1946 while working as an administrative assistant for the Ssr (Strategic Scientific Reserve) and dabbling in spy work for Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) on the side. I’m not crazy about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but Agent Carter has real promise and this first clip offers a preview of how Carter hides her double life from her roommate. On an aesthetic level, the colors and costumes are a step up from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., though I’m curious to see if the fuzzy lens (it’s old-timey, see!) becomes a distraction or works well in »

Earlier this week, a rumor surfaced that a proposed deal between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios to share the Spider-Man movie rights is still on the table, after it was believed to be dead. If this co-production deal is finalized, Marvel and Sony will split production costs 60/40, with Sony still retaining distribution rights but allowing Marvel to use the character in their films, such as Captain America: Civil War. Today we have new details from Latino Review, who claim that if this moves forward, Marvel has no plans to bring back The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.
Marvel wants to retain full creative control over any new Spider-Man movie, and the rumors of an Aunt May spin-off and a all-female Spider-Man spin-off were plans that Marvel already knew about and reportedly "severely disliked." Marvel reportedly doesn't want any part of the original »

We’ve had that lengthy official synopsis for Marvel’s Agent Carter for well over a month now, but how about getting a better sense of what’s coming in episodes 1 and 2 specifically? Marvel just unveiled the synopses for the first two episodes of the season titled “Now is Not the End” and “Bridge and Tunnel,” respectively. Hit the jump to read both and to check out a brand new poster for the show as well. Agent Carter is set to kick off on January 6, 2015 on ABC. It stars Hayley Atwell, Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokaj, James D’Arcy and Shea Whigham.

Even though I hear the show has picked up in its second season, I'm still not eager to return to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Instead, I've turned my excitement to ABC and Marvel's new series, Agent Carter. I like everything I know about it so far: strong protagonist played by Hayley Atwell; only eight episodes; it was created by Captain America: The First Avenger writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely; and it’s a spy series set in the 1940s, which is a time period we don't see on television. ABC has now announced that the one-hour premiere has been extended to two hours, which basically makes the Agent Carter series premiere into a movie, and I'm absolutely fine with that. The trade-off is that the series is now seven episodes, although technically it's still eight because the first and second episodes have been combined to make the extended premiere. The »

“I didn’t know our government had such good taste in secretaries.”
That's definitely something that you wouldn't want to say to Agent Peggy Carter, especially after seeing her kick some ass in this new action-packed spot for Marvel's Agent Carter. I'm really excited for this series, and I think it's so cool that Marvel managed to get the same actors from Captain America: The First Avenger to star in it.
The series stars Hayley Atwell, Chad Michael Murray as Ssr Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as Ssr Agent Daniel Sousa, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, and Shea Whigham as Ssr Chief Roger Dooley. The series was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who are also currently writing Captain America: Civil War.

It has been expected that Frank Grillo would return to the Marvel universe in Captain America: Civil War and reprise his role of Brock Rumlow, aka Crossbones. In a recent interview with EW, he confirmed that the studio has invited him back for some more action. Here’s what he said:
“[Winter Soldier] was only a taste of what’s to come with the next film, and I couldn’t be more humbled and excited. They just kind of called and said, ‘What kind of shape are you in? We’re going to need a body scan.’ They scan your body so that whatever you wear fits you like a glove…. We all know what Crossbones represents in his world, so when they called me and said we gotta do the body scan, I was like ‘Okay!’”
So that’s how they get those costumes looking so good on the actors! I »

With Captain America: Civil War—the third entry in the star-spangled series—set to begin shooting next spring, the cast is taking a more clearly defined shape. In recent weeks, it was revealed that the film will include Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther and today Marvel announced that Daniel Brühl has joined the growing cast.
Marvel has yet to officially announce what role Daniel Brühl will tackle in Captain America: Civil War, but there has been speculation that he will play a key villain. Brühl is perhaps best known for playing Fredrick Zoller in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, Niki Lauda in Ron Howard’s Rush, and Daniel Berg in Bill Condon’s The Fifth Estate.

Two days after we reported that Costa Ronin has signed on to play Anton Vanko in Marvel's Agent Carter, Marvel has confirmed the casting with an official press release. It isn't exactly known how many episodes he will be appearing in, but you can take a look at the official details below.
Costa Ronin (The Americans) will join the cast of Marvel's Agent Carter in the role of Anton Vanko, who longtime Marvel Cinematic Universe fans will recognize as the father of one of Tony Stark's deadliest foes.
Though fans first heard of Anton and Howard Stark's business partnership in Marvel's Iron Man 2, when Vanko's son Ivan (portrayed by Mickey Rourke) made his debut, we'll get to see a significantly younger Anton as Costa Ronin in the new ABC series premiering January 2015.
Here's what Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television, had to say in a statement regarding the casting. »

"Bridget Regan brings the nuance and complexity of Dottie to life in a way that leaves no doubt as to her importance to Peggy."
Marvel's Agent Carter, starring Captain America's Hayley Atwell, follows the story of Peggy Carter. It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter” is adding another to its cast.
Regan will play a character named Dottie, who is described as “a small-town girl from Iowa who’ll have a huge impact on the life of Agent Carter.”
The series stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter as she attempts to balance routine office work for the Strategic Scientific Reserve with the secret missions she undertakes with inventor Howard Stark.

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.
Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.
Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.
Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »
It seems that these days, anything to do with superheroes or comic book adaptations is always ‘highly anticipated.’ With built-in, deeply loyal fanbases, DC and Marvel in particular tend to have audiences in the palms of their mighty corporate hands when it comes to new projects. While DC has staged a multi-pronged assault on TV viewers – with Gotham, Constantine and The Flash all launching this year, Marvel has been teasing its ace-in-the-hole, Agent Carter.
Heading to the small screen in early 2015, Agent Carter is the spinoff TV show for the supporting character from Captain America: The First Avenger. It will see fan favourite Hayley Atwell reprise her role, and Marvel recently released a teaser for the series, reminding us that when it comes to protecting the world, the best man for the job is actually a woman:

Marvel has released a full detailed synopsis for their upcoming new series Agent Carter. The show doesn't premiere until 2015, and up until this point we really didn't know what exactly it would entail other than it would include the return of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) from Captain America: The First Avengers, as well as add a some new characters.
