Why Iron Man Recruits Spider-Man to Fight Captain America in Civil War

In case you’ve been wondering why Tony Stark would recruit a 15-year-old superhero to fight with him against Captain America and his team, director Joe Russo offers an explanation. Peter Parker’s inclusion in the conflict plays out awesomely. Everything from Stark taking him under his wing to watching Spider-Man fight with and against a group of other superheroes is a blast!

According to Russo, Stark brought the young hero in because of his affection for Captain America and his friends. The director explains:

“Look, there’s a certain narcissism to the character and Tony doesn’t want to lose this fight, and at the same time I think he also sees Spider-Man as the greatest living non-lethal weapon. If you’re going out to capture a bunch of people who you don’t necessarily want to hurt, you couldn’t ask for a better character than Spider-Man to take with you.

Captain America: Civil War Directors On Why Iron Man Recruits Spidey; IMAX Featurette Emerges

It’s a superheroic relationship that looks set to stretch beyond the parameters of Captain America: Civil War, now that Robert Downey Jr. is locked for next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and for good reason, Marvelites are chomping at the bit to learn more of Tony Stark and Peter Parker’s newfound bond.

Shedding some light on that duo today was Civil War co-director Joe Russo, who spoke with Screen Rant about Tony Stark’s inherent narcissism, and why that feeds into his burning desire to ensure Tom Holland’s Spider-Man stands alongside him once the chips are down and gloves are off.

To begin, the filmmaker admitted “there’s a certain narcissism to the character and Tony doesn’t want to lose this fight, and at the same time I think he also sees Spider-Man as the greatest living non-lethal weapon. If you’re going out to capture a

Bilbo Baggins Freaks at Gollum in New Hobbit Trailer (watch)

Martin Freeman as young Bilbo Baggins has his first encounter the wiry Gollum in a new trailer for the upcoming movie “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.” Bilbo wants to find a way out of Gollum’s slimy lair, but Gollum has other plans for the Hobbit. “Oh, we like goblinses, batses, and fishes, but we haven’t tried Hobbits,” says the wiry creature. “But we haven’t tried Hobbits yet. Tell me is it soft? Is it juicy?” As Gollum presses in perilously close, Bilbo draws his sword and begins waving it wildly. “Keep your distance! I will use this if I have to,” he threatens. [...]

"When Rob's looking at her it’s tongue and cheek; she makes a serious conscious effort to try to keep her guard up.

Laura’S Love Advice: How You Can Work With Your Ex, Like Jennifer Carpenter & Michael C. Hall Have To Do

The Dexter duo are divorcing — but here’s how they can keep it civil on set!

Falling in love with a guy you work with seems like the perfect situation: you’re always at work, as is he, so you’ll always see one another. Fantastic! But what happens when your love suddenly dies and you’re forced to see your ex every single day, like Dexter’s resident married couple Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall now have to do?

The couple, who have been married for two years and play brother and sister on the hit Showtime series (awkward!), announced their impending divorce in a joint statement yesterday, but the tension between them has reportedly been present for months. In fact, they haven’t been getting along all season — and their cast members are worried their breakup is going to cause problems for the show.

This week's new films

My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done (15)

(Werner Herzog, 2009, Us) Michael Shannon, Willem Dafoe, Udo Kier, Chloë Sevigny, Grace Zabriskie. 93 mins

Herzog produced by David Lynch: it sounds like an outsider cinephile's fantasy but it's sadly not a patch on the best of their individual works, though worth watching for the cast alone. If it weren't supposedly based on a true story, you'd think the story came out of a late-night Lynch/Herzog weird-off. While delusional am-dram actor Shannon is holed up with two hostages, having just killed his mother with a sword, the cops try to work out how it came to this. Clues include ostriches, flamingoes, jelly, Greek tragedy and, yes, a dwarf.

Tamara Drewe (15)

(Stephen Frears, 2010, UK) Gemma Arterton, Roger Allam, Bill Camp. 111 mins

A postcard of the English countryside with a rude message on the back, Frears's pastoral satire balances bubbly comedy and cutting observation expertly,

Pair get set for 'Distance' close-up

Pair get set for 'Distance' close-up
Ally McBeal star Gil Bellows is teaming with Kissing Jessica Stein star Jennifer Westfeldt to star in writer-director Stu Pollard's indie dramedy Keep Your Distance. Christian Kane, Kim Raver, Elizabeth Pena, Stacy Keach, Jamie Harrold, Rick Overton and Cynthia Martells round out the cast. Shooting is under way in Kentucky. Distance is described as a character-driven project centering on a radio talk-show host (Bellows) and what happens when he meets a pharmaceutical sales rep from out of town (Westfeldt). They accidentally form a bond based on something lacking in all of their other relationships: trust. Pollard is producing the $1.2 million-budgeted feature along with producer Christina Varotsis. A native of Kentucky, Pollard is repped by Innovative Artists Agency and Chris Ridenhour at Tavel Entertainment. He made his directorial debut in 1999's Nice Guys Sleep Alone. Westfeldt is repped by UTA and Tammy Rosen at the Personal Management Co. She recently wrapped another indie, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover. Bellows is repped by ICM and Brookside Artists Management. He next stars in Blind Horizon.
