“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.

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:

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, Marvel's "Captain America: The First Avenger," Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren't recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts.
But no one should ever underestimate Peggy.

That Robert Downey Jr is a coy little diva. For months now he’s been playing with fanboys’ hearts, suggesting that his charismatic and superheroic Tony Stark will soon be bowing out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the incredibly popular blockbusters franchise he helped launch – from the looks of this morning’s news, audiences can all breath a little easier. Not only is he sticking around, but he’s going to play a key part in a bunch of upcoming Marvel movies. Starting, rather excitingly, with Captain America 3.
The ending (Spoilers!) of Iron Man 3 seemed to suggest that Tony Stark was done with all this nonsense, as he announced his retirement from do-gooding by proposing to his girlfriend and blowing up all of his wonderful toys. Since then Downey Jr’s been insistent that another solo Iron Man film would only happen if Mel Gibson directed »

In another high profile case of Marvel cross-fertilization, Robert Downey Jr. is being courted to appear in Captain America 3. But he won’t appear as an ally. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo are to bring Mark Millar’s notorious Civil War comics storyline into the Cinematic Universe – that saw Steve Rogers butt heads with Tony Stark over a new Superhero Registration Act, creating a civil liberties-based schism that pitted hero against hero. The studio are looking at this seismic clash to lay the groundwork for nearly a decade’s worth of future films.
A paycheque-shaped stumbling block occurred when Downey Jr. reportedly rejected the original offer of a small role in Cap’s third big screen outing. Furious Marvel Chief Executive Ike Perlmutter then attempted to have the star airbrushed out of the instalment, before Studio President Kevin Feige brought everyone back to the table. With the prospect of »

Avid followers of the Marvel cinematic universe have been wondering for awhile now when and if Robert Downey Jr. will appear as Tony Stark / Iron Man after Avengers: Age of Ultron. Some fans wondered if Iron Man 4 could be in the works, but it’s now been revealed that Downey Jr. will return as the beloved billionaire, though not in an Iron Man film.
Variety reports that Robert Downey Jr. is set to join the cast of the third Captain America movie, currently referred to as Captain America 3, to reprise his role as Tony Stark / Iron Man. Additionally, the third installment in the super soldier franchise is on track to follow Marvel’s Civil War storyline that took place in the comic book world from 2006 – 2007.
At its core a seven-issue mini-series penned by Mark Millar (though its influence weaved through other comic book titles), the Civil War plot »

The story will pit Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man/Tony Stark against Chris Evans' Captain America/Steve Rogers, as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with super-human abilities to register themselves with the U.S. government, and agree to serve as part of a new police force. Stark supports the program, but Rogers does not, believing that it threatens the civil liberties of U.S. citizens. Rogers and others opposing the act are forced to go on the run. This story will also enable Stark to be a villain, of sorts, with his views going against the rest of his Avengers teammates.
Production is set to begin in the spring of »
Robert Downey Jr. is on the verge of signing on to “Captain America 3,” a move that would bring the Civil War storyline from Marvel’s comicbooks to the bigscreen and trigger the start of a new phase of movies from Marvel Studios.
The actor is in final negotiations to play billionaire Tony Stark in the third installment, which is slated to begin production in the Spring for a May 6, 2016 release. Downey is already set to suit up as Iron Man for next year’s “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “The Avengers 3.”
The deal is significant for the Marvel cinematic universe considering the plot will pit Stark against Captain America’s alter-ego Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with superhuman abilities to reveal their identities to the U.S. government and agree to act as a police force for the authorities. »
