Thomas Roach with eight predictions for the Marvel Cinematic Universe…
Through years of planning and a chain of successes Marvel Studios has delivered films that both excel at the box office and please their fans. Unlike the other superhero movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has all these characters existing in the same universe and crossing over into each other’s films – this started with Iron Man back in 2008 and the standalone films led to the first Avengers film which saw these extraordinary characters team up.
The success is trying to be imitated by Warner Bros. with the DC cinematic universe and Fox who have ambitions of a shared universe between X-Men and Fantastic Four – the only Marvel properties they own. Marvel Studios has definitely got it right though where the others fail. It is a great time for Marvel Studios and there is no sign of this slowing down any time soon. »

They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. But in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it’s getting harder for the superhero to tell the difference. In the latest installment from Marvel Studios’ interlocked franchise, Chris Evans’ unfrozen genetically-enhanced warrior from the Greatest Generation is still unsure of his place in the world after helping to save it twice: once from the forces of Red Skull in 2011’s original Captain America, and again from an alien invasion in 2012’s The Avengers.

With Captain America: The Winter Solider currently the number one movie around the world, it’s finally time to share some of the filmmaker interviews that get into the spoilers of the film. At the recent Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. While I've already posted what they said about Captain America 3 and the status of the Agent Carter TV pilot, it's now time for the Captain America: The Winter Solider spoilers talk. Since I don't want to spoil anything on the front page, I'll mention what we talked about after the jump. During the interview Markus and McFeely talked about writing and designing the big third-act action set piece, the Winter Soldier storyline and how it came about, when Sebastian Stan learned the arc of his character, Nick Fury's action scene, how the flying »

Comic book movies have provided us with some of Hollywood’s most memorable characters over the years – though not always for the right reasons.
There have been some absolutely awful characters depicted and some truly stinking performances – Howard the Duck, Julian McMahon’s Doctor Doom, Topher Grace’s Venom and Vinnie Jones’ Juggernaut are examples of characters and performances that we’d all rather forget – but there have undoubtedly been some great counter-examples. Now that the initial stigma that was attached to comic book movies has disappeared (people really didn’t take them seriously for a while), big things are expected from them as A-list actors are increasingly becoming attached to them and giving highly accomplished performances.
Villain portrayals in particular have proven to bring out the best in actors in a lot of cases, with the evil-doers arguably outdoing the heroes on the popularity front overall »

With Captain America: The Winter Solider currently the number one movie around the world, it’s finally time to share some of the filmmaker interviews that get into the spoilers of the film. At the recent Los Angeles press day, I landed a regular TV interview with directors Joe and Anthony Russo where they talked about being comic book geeks, the difficulty of balancing the Marvel sequel's action with the character moments, if they read the message boards or comments sections to get an idea of what the fans wanted to see, whether they fought over any ideas, Captain America 3, and more. You can watch that interview right here. However, the day after that interview, we sat down in their hotel room for an extended conversation that got into specific plot points from The Winter Soldier. During this interview they talked about how much of the story came from Marvel, »

Out caught up with Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees to see how he’d fared after his coming out. The good news is pretty well. Lot’s of encouragement, and very little negative. He even got some positive responses from the Lds. Just coming out to one person last year helped him. “When I heard this loving congratulations, it flipped my world around.” He does say that he’s deleted all his gay dating apps from his phone because he fears naked pictures getting out. His app of choice? Growlr.

This article contains spoilers for every McU movie up to and including Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Since Iron Man kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008, Marvel Studios has gradually built worldwide box office dominance, developing a sprawling superpowered franchise which every other studio wants to emulate. It isn’t without its curiosities and questionable decisions, though.
While Iron Man’s villain Obadiah Stane was revealed rather late in the film, he was a decent enough adversary for an origin story, and he pushed an early-in-his-superhero-career Tony Stark to his limits. In the same year, General Ross was a clear and deadly villain for The Incredible Hulk film, even though Tim Roth’s Abomination did all the heavy lifting.

Those of you who saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier this weekend know by now that the events of this Marvel Phase Two sequel will have a drastic impact on the ABC series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which was illustrated in the opening scene of this week's episode "Turn, Turn, Turn", airing Tuesday, April 8. Today, the network has released a new featurette where cast members Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Ming-Na Wen (Agent May), Chloe Bennet (Skye), Brett Dalton (Agent Ward), Iain De Caestecker (Agent Fitz) and Elizabeth Henstridge (Agent Simmons) tease how the show will be significantly altered for the rest of the season.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released April 4th, 2014 and stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo. The film is directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Joss Whedon.

This past weekend, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" opened in theaters around the country and by $10 million, beat the previous best opening for the month of April. The movie has already gone on to earn more than $300 million worldwide as well. And, the reviews have been good as well. Prior to the film's release, HitFix's Gregory Ellwood sat down with members of the cast, including Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier. As Ellwood notes in the interview, the fight scenes are amazing and assuredly that is no small reason for the film's success. Fight sequences can be intense for actors to film, and in terms of the action Stan says that "Everything we could do, we did," and that he and Chris Evans had fight choreography training for about three months. During the filming, Stan also had to be able to use a prosthetic arm and had the »

Read Review: Captain America – The Winter Soldier on Filmonic.
- Andrew Shuster
Chicago – If the original is anything to applaud, the sequel usually isn’t. And even more rarely is the sequel actually better.
While it’s aggressive to market “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as one of the “best superhero movies of all time” and more realistic to pitch it as “better than ‘The Avengers,’” it most certainly is 2014’s best action flick yet and it definitely defies common sequel disappointment.
When I think back on “Captain America: The First Avenger” three years ago, I recall it being just fine. I snoozed through a bit of it, I was somewhat underwhelmed by a lot of it and I remember leaving thinking I just got more of the same Hollywood blockbuster formula.
I wasn’t surprised, blown away or boldly thrown off guard by twists and turns I couldn’t have expected. A scrawny nobody gets a high-tech government serum and »
