Considering that virtually everyone from the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be in Captain America: Civil War, it was never clear if Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/The Hulk would be in the picture. However, the star has been spotted visiting the set of the movie, and partying with its stars Chris Evans (Captain America), Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo) and Anthony Mackie (The Falcon).
“Since this week, Us superstars Chris Evans (34), Mark Ruffalo (47) and Anthony Mackie (36) along with fellow actor star Daniel Brühl are shooting the third part of Captain America in Berlin,” reports a German outlet.
Now if these reports are true, that would also suggest that Bruce Banner would be on Captain America’s side in the movie, or he’s there to have a fight with Steve Rogers. Or he’s just visiting his friends on set. Could go either way at this point.

While Kevin Feige and company sit on a big pile of money laughing hysterically at the success they’ve found since being ridiculed for releasing a film about a C-List superhero like Iron Man way back in 2008, the rest of us are wondering what’s next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With Ant-Man, Phase 2 has officially come to an end, with Phase 3 kicking off next year with Captain America: Civil War. If it’s anything like the comic books it’s based on, that movie is going to dramatically alter the foundations of this world, setting the stage for everything which follows between next May and the release of the two-part Avengers: Infinity War.
With sequels, the introduction of several new heroes, and the historic deal which is going to see Spider-Man arrive in the McU, Phase 3 is looking pretty hectic. It’s also looking pretty damn exciting for us fans, »

The release of Ant-Man marks the official end of Marvel's Phase 2 films. With Phase 3 set to kick off next Summer, we thought it'd be a great time to take a look at how the second Phase of the Marvel Universe did overall. Come inside to check out our thoughts!
The commercial success of the McU has proven that comic book films are here to stay. Audiences have enthusiastically embraced Disney’s films that bring their favorite comic book characters to the big screen. Phase 1 was proof of concept. It was possible to have several comic book character-based movies take place in the same universe. The original Avengers film was proof that audiences would enjoy seeing them working together to fight bad guys. Phase 2 is all about maintaining that trend while introducing new faces. Was Disney successful in accomplishing its goals? What can they do to improve Phase 3? This is a »

With trailers now in theaters and the 2016 release date slowly inching closer, speculation is growing about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Most people assume—probably correctly—that Batman will leave the Man of Steel lying in defeat. Batman’s popularity is such that bat-fans would riot if the Dark Knight should lose. However, the fact is…Batman Should lose, and here are five good reasons why.
Batman is the most popular super hero in the world. That’s hard to dispute. Starting with the success of the Batman: The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel, continuing through the staggeringly popular Nolan/Bale films, Batman is the king of comic characters. The fervor people have for this character is such that fans consider him unbeatable given the proper prep-time. That will probably affect the script of the Batman v Superman film, and Superman will end up flat on his back. »

"I gotta hustle," said Johansson about her acting career.

'Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work — theater, producing... this thing with 'Esquire'..."

Although he’s stepped down as showrunner on Marvel’s Daredevil, Steven DeKnight was in attendance at the Television Critics Association press tour yesterday, during which he spoke to Slash Film about the upcoming introduction of The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) in the show’s second season, and whether this presents Marvel with the opportunity to do the character justice following his previous big screen appearances.
“The thing about The Punisher, and I think there are great things about each of those versions, but none of them was completely the Marvel version,” said DeKnight. “And none of those movies were under the Marvel Studios banner until they recently got The Punisher back. So this is really the first time that we’re seeing the Marvel Studios from the Iron Man days, when they can control their own product, actually do this character.”

Ever since Captain America: Civil War was announced back in October, during Marvel's now-legendary press event, fans have wondered which superheroes will be siding with Captain America and which will align themselves with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Production is still happening in Atlanta, where Jeremy Renner was spotted wearing a hat which teases the side his character Hawkeye may be on.

Big-budget movies go into production without a completed script with some frequency, so it was notable when the team behind the “Transformers” film franchise assembled a "think tank" to hash out a plan for the future of the series. “Daredevil” season one showrunner Steven DeKnight was in this think tank, joined by “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman, Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari (“Ant-Man”), Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (“Iron Man”), and Zak Penn (“X-Men: The Last Stand”) among others. Akiva Goldsman led the charge in charting the course for the future of the “Transformers” franchise. DeKnight was on hand at today’s TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour to talk about the first season of Netflix’s "Daredevil." When asked about the “Transformers” experience, DeKnight said that it was “wonderful” that movies are now taking a page from television. “It was a wonderful experience,” DeKnight enthused. “Akiva Goldsman was fantastic and Jeff Pinkner was phenomenal. »

Hopefully by now this isn.t a spoiler for you: Robert Downey Jr. reprises his Iron Man role for Captain America: Civil War for a battle with Chris Evans.s Steve Rogers. This fight will force the rest of the Avengers team to pick sides, pitting friend against friend. But the big question surrounding this film is which side each hero will be taking. Still months before the film.s release, Jeremy Renner could be the first actor to reveal his character.s allegiance. Just Jared has just posted an image showing Renner entering a hotel in New York City, and while this seems ordinary enough, what makes the incident interesting is that the Hawkeye actor was sporting a black baseball cap with the words "Team Captain America" embedded on the front. If this means what we think it means, this could be confirmation that the arrow-slinging hero will be »
The rumors are true! In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Rachel McAdams confirmed that she is in talks to play the female lead in Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role. "It's still super-early days, and I don't know where that's gonna go, if it's gonna go anywhere at all," the 36-year-old actress said. Never fear, though! McAdams is not a "comic book snob." In fact, she was once considered for the role of Pepper Potts in 2008's Iron Man. The role went to Gwyneth Paltrow, but McAdams got to work with Robert Downey Jr. in 2009's Sherlock Holmes and again in 2011's Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. "I try »
We've known ever since Robert Downey Jr. joined the cast of Captain America: Civil War that the 2016 flick will be a loose adaptation of the comic book storyline that saw many superheroes of the Marvel Universe become divided over the prospect of the Superhuman Registration Act. However, what we still don't know about the highly-anticipated movie is which Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes will be pro-registration with Downey's Iron Man or anti with Chris Evans' Captain America. Well, we might have just learned whose allegiance Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye will be a part of when all the calamity unfolds in Civil War. As pictured below, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star has been spotted out and about wearing a cap with "Team Captain America" embedded on the front. Which suggests the archer will be against the government having control over the superhero community, among other things. And in other words, »
During a promotional interview with Screen Rant to promote this week’s release of his latest film Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Jeremy Renner has spoken briefly about Hawkeye’s role in the next Marvel movie Captain America: Civil War, as well as sharing a few thoughts on how the studio might proceed after Avengers: Infinity War closes out Phase Three.
“[Captain America: Civil War] is more active, a lot of fun stuff happening in that one,” said Renner. “I can’t speak too much for it. They’re still filming that sucker right now. But yeah, there’s a lot of stuff happening in that one physically for me anyway. Then who knows in the future? I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
The topic of conversation then shifted to Phase Four, and whether Marvel will stick with »
