Without Captain America: The First Avenger, there would be no Before We Go. When Chris Evans was offered the role of Steve Rogers in the 2011 Marvel Studios film, he initially turned it down. He relented, of course, and he has reprised his role as the comic book character several times since. What he didn't know at the time, of course, was that being involved in the blockbuster film franchise would allow him to pursue other creative endeavors—namely, directing. "In retrospect, it was such a good decision," Evans told E! News' Maria Menounos while promoting Before We Go in Hollywood Wednesday, adding, "My brain has this amazing talent of focusing on the negative and magnifying it to »
Asking Stan Lee to pick his favourite Marvel actor is a bit like making him choose a favourite child.
Marvel's post-credit Easter eggs ranked from worst to best
Shortly after Ronda Rousey defended her Ufc women's champion title earlier this month, the actress/Mma fighter revealed during a Reddit Ama session that she would like to play the title character in Captain Marvel. Marvel Studios hasn't announced any casting for their Phase Three superhero adventure yet, which hits theaters November 2, 2018, and it isn't known if the studio will even consider the actress for the role. As it turns out, though, Ronda Rousey has been offered a huge sum of money to play Captain Marvel in a new porn parody, according to TMZ Sports.
Porn director Axel Braun has reportedly offered Ronda Rousey a whopping $5 million for three sex scenes, which will require her to shoot for two weeks. The filmmaker even apologized to the actress in advance, in case she is offended by the offer. There is no word on how Ronda Rousey responded to the offer, but »

Tony Stark confronts General Thunderbolt Ross
Tony Stark's hypercool presence is a welcome one - and it's neat that Ross's drink is Gamma green - but Marvel never followed up on this tag in future films and eventually had to make a special short to explain it. Incidentally, William Hurt will be back for Captain America: Civil War next year, where hopefully he won't punch any plot holes into the script. »

“Rogue One” has begun principal photography with “Godzilla’s” Gareth Edwards directing. The standalone film tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. The film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy.
“‘Rogue One’ takes place before the events of ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the ‘Star Wars’ universe,” said Kennedy in a statement. “It goes into new territory, exploring the galactic struggle from a ground-war perspective while maintaining that essential ‘Star Wars’ feel that fans have come to know. Gareth is such an innovative director, »

They both come from Marvel, but Captain America and Deadpool could not be more different. One is a patriotic soldier with wholesome values, the other is a fourth wall-breaking nutcase whose life is filled with explosive shenanigans. So imagine how surprising it is to see a Captain America movie trailer edited to feel like next year’s Deadpool film, and even more surprising is that it actually works. The YouTube account DailyAsgardianNews has put together a trailer for the Captain America movie we’ll never see, titled Captain America: The 95 Year Old Virgin. The clips, of course, are from Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the tone, soundtrack, and even a few lines and sound effects are from the recently released Deadpool red-band trailer. The Captain America trailer kicks off in similar fashion to the »

Well, it’s here. The final superhero movie of 2014 arrives with a bang – only not the kind of bang 20th Century Fox was hoping for. Having been surrounded by negativity from the start, the studio’ reboot of Fantastic Four opened this past Thursday to a wave of bad reviews and a whimper at the box office. It’s currently at 9% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it one of the worst-received superhero movies ever (a title I’m not sure it really deserves, but…), and despite early tracking indicating a $40-$50 million weekend, »

Ant-Man has surpassed the worldwide haul of 2008’s The Incredible Hulk ($263.4 million), but remains the second-lowest instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe behind 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger ($370.6 million). The film is still to open in a number of markets, including South Korea, China and Japan, so its box office run is far from over, although at this point it seems a certainty that the film will end up as the lowest-grossing chapter of Phase Two by a fair distance.

As one of the more compelling tendrils of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Agent Carter has spawned a loyal following who are all invested in the covert operations of one Peggy Carter. And so, after a brief cameo in Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man last month, fans are keeping one eye trained on 2016 in anticipation of season 2. We’ve long heard of Marvel’s plans to introduce more villains with the show’s sophomore outing, though during a recent interview with /Film, Executive Producers Tara Butters and Chris Dingess revealed how they are putting their own spin on the villainous Madame Masque.
Though Masque didn’t make her bow in the comics until ’69, Butter and Dingess confirmed that the antagonist will be reworked to mesh with the rest of the story, telling fans to expect a devious movie actress who harbors the darkest alter-ego in all of Tinsel Town.

Although Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter made quite a duo in Captain America: The First Avenger, the film didn.t get too in-depth with their romance. The only clear-cut moments of passion between them were when they kissed at Red Skull.s Hydra compound (as seen above) and when they tearfully said goodbye to one another. However, the film jumped around to different moments in World War II, leaving much of their time together unexplored. Which begs the question: did they have sex? Well, Peggy.s actress Hayley Atwell seems to think so. During a panel at the Boston Comic-Con (via Comicbook.com), Atwell was asked whether she thinks that Steve and Peggy had sex back in the 1940s, or if Cap made his way into the 21st century as a 90 year old virgin. It turns out that the actress thinks that the lovers did indeed do the deed, saying: »
With the now traditional post-credits sting, Marvel has created a bit of a rod for its own back. It has reached the stage where they clearly have to include something, anything, but also do so in a way that fits either with the film you’ve just watched, or teases the next one to be released. Often they’ll have one of each.
It all began with the appearance of Nick Fury at the end of the first Iron Man film, which essentially set up the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, but in doing so set a precedent that some subsequent films have struggled with.
Audiences wait around long after the credits have started to roll, and they want something to get excited about. The shawarma scene after The Avengers was great, because it was a joke that clearly tied into the movie, and was a bit different to anything else they’d attempted. »

While Marvel Studios have a habit of signing their actors up for multi-picture deals, it seems that Michael Douglas didn’t get the typical Marvel contract for Ant-Man, with the actor revealing that he hasn’t signed on for any future appearances as Dr. Henry ‘Hank’ Pym, although he’s open to a return.
“I’m not signed up to anything more,” Douglas tells Yahoo Movies. “I’ve learned a whole lot and would look forward to more if it comes my way but if not I’ve enjoyed the experience. Now that I understand a bit more about Hank Pym too. I think in this one I had to carry a lot of plot and exposition. In the next one I hope things get a little more bizarre… the Quantum Realm!”

Academy Award-winner Tommy Lee Jones (Men In Black; Captain America: The First Avenger) has officially signed on to face-off with Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) in the upcoming fifth installment of the Bourne franchise. Details on the film's plot are still scarce, but Variety reports that Jones is set to play a high-ranking officer at the CIA, a role akin to ones played by Edward Norton, Chris Cooper, Brian Cox, and David Strathairn in previous installments. In addition to Damon, director Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips) is back to helm his third Bourne film and longtime co-star Julia Stiles (Dexter) is also returning for her fourth adventure. Along with Jones, Alicia Vikander (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) has been confirmed to be joining the franchise and it's been rumored that Viggo Mortensen (The Lord Of The Rings) is in line for a villainous role.
