'Captain America 3' to Open Against 'Batman Vs. Superman'!
38 minutes ago
Marvel and Disney obviously have a lot of faith in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as they position its sequel Captain America 3 to go head-to-head with Warner Bros. and DC Comics mega-blockbuster Batman Vs. Superman on May 6, 2016.
Just today, Kevin Feige confirmed that Marvel was standing firm on the May 6 release date for one of its upcoming untitled movies, which he claimed would be announced very soon. Despite having staked out the territory first, Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided to move to that same date when Batman Vs. Superman was bumped from its July 2015 release due to production delays. Neither studio is budging in what has become one of the greatest games of cinematic chicken ever witnessed. And Marvel obviously means business, as it positions one of its biggest franchise titles to go against Kal-El and Bruce Wayne.
This will certainly be one of the biggest superhero box office showdowns in history. »
'Captain America 2' Star Sebastian Stan Has a 9 Picture Deal with Marvel Studios
38 minutes ago
Sebastian Stan, who played Steve Rogers' best friend Bucky Barnes in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger and is transformed into the villainous Winter Soldier in next month's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, revealed in an interview with NewsaRama that he actually has a nine-picture deal in place with Marvel Studios. Here's what he had to say, when asked how large his deal with Marvel is.
"I think I actually have nine."
This revelation comes as somewhat of a surprise, since Chris Evans revealed earlier this week that he has three movies left of his original six-picture deal. While it's possible that he could sign a new deal for more movies, the actor hinted in another interview earlier this month that he is considering taking a break from acting after his Marvel deal expires, to pursue a career in directing. He has already shot his directorial debut, 1:30 Train, »
Marvel Refuses to Back Away from 'Batman Vs. Superman' Release Date
2 hours ago
Because of production delays, the Man of Steel sequel, tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman, was pushed from July 2015 to May 6, 2016. This caused some controversy, because Warner Bros. and DC Comics were knowingly setting their enormous blockbuster right on top of an Untitled Marvel movie that had already claimed that specific release date.
It appeared to be a game of chicken between the two rival comic book studios, with DC having the potentially bigger movie. As of now, we still don't know what Marvel is planning to release on this date. But one thing is clear, they are determined not to back down.
Marvel's own Kevin Feige confirmed they were going to stand firm, and that the title would be announced shortly.
"We're certainly keeping the date there and we'll announce what that movie is, I assume, in the next few months.""

'Explorers' Remake Being Planned at Paramount
22 hours ago
The original story follows three outcast teenage boys who bond over the creation of a homemade spaceship that sends them into the deepest reaches of the galaxy, where they meet an adolescent alien that has been weaned on TV. Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix and Bobby Fite starred as the three best friends. The movie flopped at the box office, after its release date got moved up and its third act had to be hastily rewritten on the fly. It found a strong second life on VHS to become an 80s classic. Some believe it fell under Steven Spielberg's Amblin Film's banner, but he was not a producer on the movie.
