After Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man close out Marvel Phase Two later this year, Phase Three will kick off with Captain America: Civil War. The sequel is adapted from the Civil War comic book series written by Mark Millar. While doing press for his new adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service, the writer offered his thoughts on Marvel's upcoming adaptation. Here's what he had to say:
"They're a money machine, they're amazing. Whatever they do is gonna be a billion dollar movie and it'll be great. You know as a fanboy I grew up, since I was 4 or 5 I planned to be Spider-Man. Even now I still think it's possible! I couldn't be more relaxed about it. Almost any other studio could screw it up. I'll just show up on the night and enjoy the film."
It remains to be seen if he will be involved in the adaptation, but »

During a recent interview with Collider, Mackie talked about the upcoming movie, and here's what he had to say about the latest draft of the script written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
"Let’s just say it’s a wing-ding-doozy of a time. The great thing about it is, after seeing Avengers I joked and said Captain America 2 was Avengers 1.5. Now with Avengers 2 coming out… Captain America 3 is so far beyond Avengers 2.5 and onto the realm of Avengers 3.8. It’s by far one of the most stupendous rides Marvel has put together."
Everything that I've heard about this movie has sounded incredible. »

Things aren’t looking so good for Hawkeye right about now, because at the moment he’s the only core Avenger who isn’t confirmed to appear in Captain America: Civil War or any future Marvel films. According to directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will be back for the big brawl between Cap and Iron Man, meaning she won’t bite the dust when Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters in May.
It comes as no surprise that Johansson will be back for a fifth outing as the deadly assassin. She’s long been a fan-favorite of the big screen Avengers team, and had a significant role to play in last year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Chances of survival are slim for the team of villains known as the Suicide Squad in the upcoming film of the same name. They have already lost one of their own, though it’s not due to the story’s high stakes. It’s been revealed that Tom Hardy has departed from Suicide Squad, with another big name rumored to replace him. And on the Marvel movie news front, Scarlett Johansson has been confirmed for Captain America: Civil War.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hardy will no longer co-star in Suicide Squad due to scheduling conflicts. Hardy was lined up to play Rick Flag, the Suicide Squad team leader with a military background. It’s believed that Jake Gyllenhaal has been offered the chance to play the vacated role, but no official deals have been made. As shown below, the movie still retains a star-studded lineup:

We already know that Captain America: Civil War will feature the return of several key players from last year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, both in front of and behind the camera. Naturally, Chris Evans will be back as Captain America himself alongside Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) and Frank Grillo (Crossbones), with new casting additions Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther). Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will also be back with directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo.

For those worried about whether or not they would see Scarlett Johansson take part in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War as Black Widow, be assured that she will be there.

One of the shining lights of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" was Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow being such an integral part of that film's story. Yet with the announcement of the third film "Captain America: Civil War" and the inclusion of both Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark and Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther characters, the assumption was she wouldn't have much of an appearance in 'Civil War'.
Things weren't helped by the fact that no official release or announcement about the film seemed to include her name. This week though, during a recent press event in Beijing, co-director Anthony Russo confirmed (via Cbm) that she will be back:
"We've been preparing for the movie since the one debuted last year. So, we've been working on it for a long time now. We're very happy how it's coming along. Captain America 3 is gonna be called Captain America: Civil War »

When Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely entered into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's hard to imagine that they would have had any sort of inkling that they would turn Captain America into the best stand alone Marvel franchise. With Captain America: Civil War now occupying their collective quills, Markus and McFeely are getting ready to not only introduce a new Avenger with Black Panther, but to possibly continue the story of Peggy Carter and her relationship with S.H.I.E.L.D. and Steve Rogers. If you thought the third Captain America movie was going to be just action, it looks like you were wrong. IGN managed to catch up with the two writers at the recent TCA press junket, which saw Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely promoting their recent project, the television event series Marvel's Agent Carter. So what better time to ask the two about just what's »
Yesterday, rumors hit the internet about a ton of spoiler filled details regarding Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and more. If it's true, things are about to get even crazier in the Marvel cinematic universe. While speaking at TCA (via IGN), Captain America franchise screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely talked about Civil War, Black Panther, Agent Carter, and more.
Apparently the idea of introducing the Civil War storyline has been being discussed for awhile. McFeely explained,
“It’s been on and off the table for a while, let’s put it that way. And it’s a challenge to do it and make sure that all the characters that we’ve established, and everyone’s established in the McU are serviced and sound correct, right? Because there’s a difference between the characters in Civil War, which was written in 2006, 2007. The McU doesn’t exist [when it was written]. There isn »

In case you haven.t noticed, superhero movies are all the rage and have bene dominating the box office. Marvel is finding such huge success with its cinematic universe surrounding the Avengers, and it.s got stuff in the works all the way through 2018. DC will soon beef up its offerings, as well, with a movie slate that extends into 2020. Why is this genre doing so well now, when past efforts haven.t worked as famously? Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the gents who wrote Captain America: The Winter Soldier and are returning to pen Civil War, keep getting asked this question and they.ve got an answer. As quoted by IGN, McFeely told a small group of reporters: Why are comic books so prevalent? Why are these movies doing so well? In some ways, we.ve become a genre that you can do well now given the world »
The men that wrote both cinematic Captain America adventures so far have been tasked with writing the third film in the series. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will once again put the words into Chris Evans's mouth as he dons the blue suit, grabs his shield, and heads out for his most ambitious solo project, Captain America: Civil War. Considering they wrote both of the previous films, which had drastically different narrative styles, what's the plan for the next one? What about Peggy Carter, who's seemingly becoming more entangled with the Stark family than we ever expected?
IGN sat down with half of that writing duo, McFeely, to tackle some of these questions. In terms of the style and tone of Civil War, it sounds like we can expect a more fluid continuation of what we saw in The Winter Soldier. Where as the first film was a patriotic, »

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely were present at the TCA Winter Tour yesterday to promote their ABC series Marvel's Agent Carter, but the writers also shed new light on their highly-anticipated superhero sequel Captain America: Civil War, which kicks off Marvel Phase Three next year. The writers teased that the Civil War story line, which pits Avengers Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) against each other, has been in the works for quite some time. Here's what Stephen McFeely had to say in an interview with IGN.
"It's been on and off the table for a while, let's put it that way. And it's a challenge to do it and make sure that all the characters that we've established, and everyone's established in the McU are serviced and sound correct, right?

Appearing at the Television Critics Association winter tour to promote Marvel’s TV series Agent Carter, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely naturally fielded questions about their work on the third Captain America film, subtitled Civil War. As old Marvel Cinematic Universe hands, they were fairly circumspect on what they could say, but did offer up some news on how they’re tackling the tricky storyline.Civil War, of course, adapts the famous run of the comics that saw Cap and Iron Man going head to head over the issue of a government plan to force superheroes to register their real identities. While the film version won’t directly channel the storyline, it’ll be a huge influence. "It’s been on and off the table for a while, let’s put it that way, and it’s a challenge to do it and make sure that all the characters that we’ve established, »
While attending the Television Critics Association press tour today for their writing/ exec producing duties on Marvel and ABC's Agent Carter miniseries, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely were eventually pressed about their work on the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War. Without going into details about the plot, the screenwriters did discuss a potential dynamic between Peggy Carter and Tony Stark, the casting of Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa aka the Black Panther, and of course the "Civil War" source material. "As we have not started shooting, and I’m on my fourth draft of many, that question (of who Peggy was to Tony Stark) has been in and out all over the place so who knows," McFeely told IGN. "So many things can shake out but we’ve had conversations and we pitched scenes. Some stay and some don’t. But...we saw (Peggy) in Winter Soldier, so we know she’s around. »
After a frustrating oblique panel for ABC's "The Whispers," which is about something that was introduced in the original pilot but now won't be introduced until the fourth or fifth episode, it's now time for "Marvel's Agent Carter," which is blissfully about what it's about. The third "Agent Carter" episode aired on Tuesday night, so we've got some stuff to discuss, even though only five more episodes remain. The panel includes Hayley Atwell, James D'Arcy, Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokaj, Lyndsy Fonseca and a whopping seven producers, including Marvel's Jeph Loeb, creators Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, showrunners Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters, plus two other guys. Follow along below! 4:18 p.m. Et. So many executive producers. 4:19 p.m. We're starting with a clip from the next new episode, which will air in two weeks. Dominic Cooper returns! And Howard Stark and Agent Carter shout at each other! 4:20 p. »

The proverbial Top Ten List. A sacred tradition passed down by our cinematic elders. This is the fourth time I have partaken in this holy tradition, and one thing has remained constant is that this list is never set in stone. As we catch up with more films we missed or rewatch our favorites it causes us to like a movie more or less causing this list to change. In fact in 2012 and 2013 I ended up seeing my number one film of the year after I wrote up my Top 10. So the question becomes, “Why Do it?”. Well, for one it’s fun. At least I find it an enjoyable exercise as I try to break down the year that was. I watched 163 movies that were released in 2014. Narrowing that 163 down to a Top 10 is a challenge I enjoy.
Looking at 2014 as a whole it is evident it was a pretty good year. »

As someone who gave up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. after it failed to deliver on all of the promise the show had at the onset, I was pleasently surprised by Agent Carter. After just one episode, the Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) created drama feels like a true extention of the Marvel Cinematic Universe whereas Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. still doesn't after being halfway through its second season. If you're like me and intrigued to see where Agent Carter is headed, you'll be happy to hear that star, Hayley Atwell says that there are plently of surprises still to come on the miniseries. "It takes a completely different turn," from the two-hour premiere. "It's exciting the direction it takes. It's really clever the way the writers stayed on top of everything. Just when the audience goes, 'Alright, I know what the show is,' it goes »
