The Marvel Studios train is a busy one, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. Back in 2007, the studio was forging ahead with its first two films, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. Now, in the post-Avengers world, Marvel is juggling a schedule that sees the studio amping up to releasing three films a year starting in 2017, where we’ll get Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider-Man, and Thor: Ragnarok within the span of six months. With such enticing projects on the horizon, fans are understandably curious about when and where everything starts filming. Steve recently spoke with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at the press day for Ant-Man, and he revealed the studio’s production plans for the next few films: “We literally just crossed the halfway mark of [Captain America:] Civil War last week, it’s day 42 or 43 of 80. We start filming Doctor Strange in London in November. We »

Since the announcement of the massive cast of Captain America: Civil War (that includes the likes of Iron Man, Black Panther, Spider-Man and the rest of the New Avengers), many fans were starting to worry that this would not be a “Captain America movie”. Well fear not, because Kevin Feige is putting those worries to rest.
“Certainly at the end of Civil War it’s a whole new ball game,” Feige told io9. “What’s fun about Civil War though is, as you know from the comics, it’s a very simple story. And it really has to be, to accommodate that many players. It’s very much a Captain America movie and it’s very much a sequel to The Winter Soldier in ways I don’t think people [will expect]…. It’s a very simple structure that allows you to have these amazing character interactions in a way that I don’t think becomes overwhelming. »

When Marvel confirmed its Phase Three slate in October, producer Kevin Feige revealed that Chadwick Boseman is portraying Black Panther, and he will make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, which is currently shooting in Atlanta. Very little is known about how Black Panther fits into this massive story, which pits Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) against each other. But today we get new details from Kevin Feige, who is promoting Ant-Man. When asked if we will see Chadwick Boseman's T'challa as Black Panther right away in Captain America: Civil War, the producer had this to say.
"I don't know how to answer that question without spoiling it! It is a role that he is still in the beginning phases of taking on, it's a mantle he is only beginning to take on because his father is older."
In the comics, Black Panther »

Ever since Iron Man came out in 2008, most of Marvel.s movies have followed each other chronologically. Excluding flashbacks, the only exception so far has been 2011.s Captain America: The First Avenger, and even that caught up to the present when Steve Rogers awoke from suspended animation. ABC.s Agent Carter provided Marvel fans with another period piece, but so far there haven.t been any other movies that have taken place in the past. However, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, that may be subject to change at some point in the future. During an interview with io9, Feige admitted that it.s possible that one of their future big screen projects could take place in the past. Feige said: Certainly we could [set another one in the past]. There are no rules. I think the majority of them will be chronological, but not all of them necessarily. »
It's no longer about who was at Taylor Swift's concert, it's more like who wasn't at the "Style" singer's performance in London's Hyde Park Saturday! In addition to her group of gal-pals who pranced around onstage, including Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and Martha Hunt, it looks like A-listers such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson also attended the musical event. Paltrow and Hudson are notable longtime BFFs, but there was one other person who joined their group: Paltrow's son, Moses Martin. The Iron Man actress shared a picture on Instagram of herself, Moses and T.Swift looking like they might have had a very fun evening. "#taylorswift thanks for giving me and my little »
This past week, we learned the big news that Tom Holland is the new Peter Parker in Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man reboot, which will hit theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017. We also learned that Jon Watts, director of this August's thriller Cop Car, is directing. While that is all great, many fans are still wondering if this will be a complete resurrection of the character, or if this trilogy will have any ties to the past movies, either the trilogy directed by Sam Raimi or the two movies that came from Marc Webb. Speaking with Coming Soon, Marvel head honcho and producer of the reboot, Kevin Feige promises that this will have no ties to anything that has come before it. Though, it will co-exist in a Sony Universe alongside the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"We're going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films. »
Grammy winning composer Lorne Balfe creates an action-packed, emotive score for Paramount Pictures’ and Skydance Productions’ Terminator Genisys, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, and Jai Courtney. Oscar winning composer Hans Zimmer is the Executive Music Producer.
With the movie building from 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day, including shot-for-shot recreations, Lorne Balfe’s score needed to honor the tradition of the past Terminator films while adding bold, new music to fit the action and emotions of Genisys.
In addition to propelling the action, Balfe’s score needed to tap into the film’s emotional core as it explores themes of freedom and guardianship. “The score contains everything but the kitchen sink. It’s a hybrid score, and although there are these massive action cues, »

Well, the speculation is finally over. Marvel and Sony have cast their new Spider-Man! The two studios announced this week that young British actor Tom Holland (The Impossible) has secured the role of Peter Parker for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s incarnation of the wall-crawler, while up-and-coming director Jon Watts (Cop Car) will also helm the as-yet-untitled Spider-Man reboot set for release in July 2017.

No matter how much of a Marvel fan you are, you have to concede that Avengers: Age Of Ultron had its pros and cons, but where it really fumbled was the dismount. After Iron Man set the bar high for post-credits scenes by introducing Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Avengers threw two chewy bonus features: one introducing Thanos as the Chitauri’s master and another with a great, expectations-defying gag about the team enjoying a New York dish.
What did Age Of Ultron offer? Apart from some less-impressive renditions of what you’d just seen, we got a scene of Thanos putting on a glove and resolving to do his own legwork, a decision that everybody greeted with a hearty “What took you so long?”
It was a curious choice for a movie with so much going on before the credits. And it certainly didn’t have to be that way. »

It's been a while since we got a star sighting on the set of Captain America: Civil War as filming continues in Atlanta, Georgia, but it seems the paparazzi has spotted Robert Downey Jr. while leaving his trailer yesterday. Although he's not in the Iron Man armor, the Avengers star was seen sporting Tony Stark's casuals and goatee, beside longtime driver Jimmy Rich. What do you think? Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures »
Captain America: Civil War is already packed with superheroes, villains, and other supporting characters, but if you thought the 2016 blockbuster couldn’t possibly squeeze in a few more players, you’re wrong. The latest addition to the ensemble is actress Leslie Bibb, who will reprise the role of Iron Man character Christine Everheart. everheart...fun day at work today... #marvel A photo posted by Leslie Bibb (@mslesliebibb) on Jun 23, 2015 at 2:48pm Pdt Bibb posted this photo of herself on Instagram earlier this week from Captain America: Civil War’s Atlanta, Georgia set. Since the picture was snapped in a makeup room, we don’t know what scene she just shot or is preparring to shoot, though at minimum we can rule out her battling Baron Zemo or Crossbones in the threequel. Like General Thaddeus Ross, Christine is a Marvel character that »
As soon as it was revealed that the third Captain America film would follow the beloved “Civil War” storyline, everyone understood the incredible magnitude of the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed tentpole. Civil War is essentially an Avengers-sized event, complete with dozens of familiar faces from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and the entire Avengers lineup formed at the end of Age of Ultron. Even more surprising was another announcement: that William Hurt would be reprising the role of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, last seen in The Incredible Hulk (not really considered canon in the McU given Edward Norton’s quick ouster from the title role).
Nevertheless, Hurt is getting back into uniform to play Ross, who will again be on the trail of the Hulk as the Civil War heats up – though the actor has told IGN that fans can expect to see a very »

As anyone who followed the arduous casting process held by Marvel and Sony in the search for their new Spider-Man knows, locking in a Peter Parker for the 2017 reboot wasn't an easy task. But earlier this week, the two collaborating studios finally announced that Tom Holland had won the job. And almost immediately after being hired, the actor is being flown to Atlanta, where he will film his first ever scenes opposite the cast of Captain America: Civil War. He will make his Marvel debut alongside the likes of Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. But he shouldn't be nervous. He already tested on set with both actors. And now, Chris Evans shares his reaction to the news, congratulating the newly anointed Spider-Man.
"Huge congrats to @TomHolland1996!!! Well deserved. We're lucky to have you."
Tom Holland is only 19 years old, and will play a Peter Parker that is still in High School. »
Tom Holland is expected to spend only around a week on the Atlanta set of Captain America: Civil War, so it's clear that the new Peter Parker/Spider-Man isn't going to have a massive role when he makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. It does however sound like he will be sharing scenes with both Chris Evans' Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man (and if the "Sony Hack" is to be believed, it will be Tony Stark who presents the young Spidey with his Iron Spider costume). Chris Evans has sent out a Tweet congratulating the actor, while Ron Howard has also weighed in on the casting both on Twitter and in an interview with BBC Radio 5. In that, he talks in depth about what makes Holland the right choice for Spider-Man, and you weren't already on board with the casting...you will be after listening to this! »
Bibb didn’t specify which Marvel project she’s working on, but Captain America: Civil War is the only one currently filming, so that’s likely the best bet. In the comics, her character was actually a reporter for the Daily Bugle, but her occupation was changed to Vanity Fair reporter for the McU because, at the time, Marvel didn’t have access to Peter Parker’s famed employer. Now that they do, perhaps Everhart will be working where she truly belongs? We shall see…

Captain America: Civil War is currently the only Marvel movie in production, with shooting taking place in Atlanta. The studio already confirmed several main cast members when filming got under way back in April. Earlier today, actress Leslie Bibb, who starred as Vanity Fair reporter Christine Everhart in Iron Man and Iron Man 2, shared a photo on her Instagram account today, which teases that she may be reprising her role as the journalist in Captain America: Civil War. Here's her brief message that accompanied the photo.
"everheart...fun day at work today... #marvel"
It's possible that she is reprising her Christina Everheart role for a different Marvel project, but we're not sure what that could be. As far as we know, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 hasn't started production yet, and it isn't known if Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones is still in production or not. Other than those two TV projects, »
Marvel's dominance of the superhero movie game will face stiff competition next year when Warner Bros. kicks off their DC film slate with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Warner film chief Greg Silverman caused a stir when he said that WB, unlike Marvel, is letting their directors fulfill their visions, and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige took exception to the idea that Marvel isn’t being fair to its filmmakers. Countering Silverman’s comment, Feige told THR that if you watch the McU movies, it’s obvious that each film has the mark of their respective directors, and the studio is not giving these filmmakers the shaft. As Feige put it: Iron Man and Iron Man 2 are as Jon Favreau films as you can see. Kenneth Branagh has his stamp all over Thor. Captain America: First Avenger is very much a Joe Johnston »
