Next year, Marvel's Phase Three kicks off with "Captain America: Civil War," and while it all builds toward the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War," it's the individual movies between that are a bit more interesting to me (frankly, those team up movies are getting sort of exhausting). And today, the comic studio has announced big plans. First and foremost, "Ant-Man" is getting a sequel. Even though the movie was one of the worst performing in Marvel's recent history (adjusted for inflation, it's the second worst domestic performer, sitting above "The Incredible Hulk"; unadjusted worldwide, it's above 'Hulk' and "Captain America: The First Avenger") "Ant-Man" will be followed by "Ant-Man And The Wasp." The movie will open on July 6, 2018.

By Our Selves, 2015.
Directed by Andrew Kötting.
Synopsis: A surrealist film documenting the inner thoughts and wanderings of John Clare, both physically and mentally on his “Journey out of Essex”.
Known as the Northamptonshire peasant poet, John Clare lived in the early 19th Century later turning mad as his identity was parted between the simple country life of his home town and the opportunities London possessed at a time when the emergence of rural poetry was popular. Displaced somewhere between the genres of documentary and drama, Kötting’s film looks less at the history behind Clare’s life and more at the cerebral fractures that marked the dissatisfaction he had with his own identity. »

Phase Two has come to an end, after Marvel's summer hits Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. Now fans have the massive Phase Three to look forward to, which will span nine movies instead of six, like the previous two phases, and will culminate with the two-part adventure Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II, arriving in theaters in 2018 and 2019, respectively. Producer Kevin Feige revealed during a recent Q&A (via Screen Rant) that the two-part sequel will not only bring an end to Phase Three, but also to a much larger part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. Here's what he had to say when asked to describe Phase Three.
"Broad strokes. Strokes that are broad enough and loose enough that - in the development of the four or five movies before we move into our culmination - allow us room to »
We.ve already heard from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige that Captain America: Civil War is more about our plucky star-spangled hero than it is an Avengers installment. To further cement the identity of the film, Feige has again spoken about how Marvel is looking at the McU event. What began with The First Avenger will end with Civil War, as the Marvel head honcho told MTV News that the film is the end of the Captain America trilogy of films. During a discussion to promote the home release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, he told the site, I think one day you.ll look back and watch . Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War . and it.ll be one of the most unique and different trilogies ever around a single character. Although Age of Ultron picked up after the events of »
"It's very much, in a certain way, the completion of a Captain America trilogy," Feige told MTV.
"I think one day you'll look back and watch - Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War - and it'll be one of the most unique and different trilogies ever around a single character."
Seeing that Captain America was killed (or at least seemingly killed - that's comics, folks!) in the aftermath of the Civil War comic, the question is whether Evans's character will be going the same way. »
There is a lot of speculation that Chris Evans' Steve Rogers will be killed off in Captain America: Civil War, because that's what happens in the Marvel Comics. Some believe that either Anthony Mackie's Falcon or Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes will pick up the shield and carry on the mantel of Captain America, because both of those scenarios also happen in the Marvel Comics upon which the film is based. While he wouldn't confirm any of that, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige has confirmed that Captain America: Civil War will be the end of a trilogy that started with Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011 and was carried through in last year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Ever since Captain America: Civil War was announced, people have wondered how closely it will follow the Marvel comics. Not very, with the Superhero Registration Act getting turned into the Sokovia Accords. »
We’ve already heard from Kevin Feige today about Marvel’s big plans for Spider-Man and the hope for more connectivity between the movies and TV shows, but the Marvel Studios President has now dropped perhaps the biggest reveal yet, as he addresses what sounds like the end of Captain America‘s solo adventures on the big screen.
Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers won’t make it out of Captain America: Civil War alive, but the movie still sounds like something of a definitive ending for the character based on Feige’s comments.
“It’s very much, in a certain way, the completion of a Captain America trilogy. I think one day you’ll look back and watch — ’Captain America: The First Avenger,’ ’Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ and ’Captain America: Civil War’ — and it’ll be one of the most unique and different »

There's been a lot of fretting from fans about Captain America: Civil War putting too much focus on characters like Iron Man and Spider-Man (who would have guessed we'd be mentioning him in this sentence a year ago?), with the titular superhero being put on the back burner as a result. Well, worry not, as Steve Rogers is still going to be the star of what is now sounding like the end of his solo adventures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Could Cap's story be at an end? "It’s very much, in a certain way, the completion of a Captain America trilogy," Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained at a recent Q&A to promote the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron on DVD and Blu-ray. "I think one day you’ll look back and watch — ’Captain America: The First Avenger,’ ’Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ and ’Captain America: Civil War »
An impossible, but true story, the new film from Robert Zemeckis, The Walk is a live-action, PG-rated entertainment for all audiences, ages 8 to 80. A love letter to the World Trade Center, the film is a 3D and IMAX visual experience, unlike anything audiences have seen.
On August 7, 1974 – the day before Richard Nixon announced he would be resigning from office – Philippe Petit, a French aerialist, surprised the city of New York with a high-wire walk between the towers of the almost-completed and partially occupied World Trade Center. Passersby without a moment to spare stopped in their tracks and looked up. They saw the impossible: a man dancing high in the sky, seemingly in the thin air.
Now, forty years later, Zemeckis – one of cinema’s most accomplished filmmakers at integrating technology in the service of emotional storytelling – is putting moviegoers in Petit’s shoes. The Walk, an epic, big-screen cinematic spectacle, »

Marvel’s latest superhero offering Ant-Man has had a decent enough run at the box office, with $395 million to date; however, the studio will be hoping to push that towards the $500 million mark when it opens in China next month, and a new poster has arrived online for its Chinese release, which features Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man squaring off against Corey Stoll’s Yellowjacket…

Last week, director Zack Snyder caused a bit of controversy by calling Marvel's latest theatrical hit Ant-Man, which has earned $395 million worldwide, a "flavor-of-the-week," as opposed to the iconic characters he's working with in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. After those comments were made, some may have wondered if anyone from the Marvel side would shoot back and defend the studio. While doing press for The Martian at the Toronto International Film Festival, Sebastian Stan shed some new light on the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War, but first, he addressed Zack Snyder's comments.
"Yeah, I'm sitting here and I'm listening to you and I'm thinking, 'Do I want to fire some shots at DC right now, at Zack Snyder?' I read some of those comments where he said something about Batman and Superman, I can't remember where I read that, somewhere... Something about, 'It's not going to be your flavor-of-the-week Ant-Man. »
When Joaquin Phoenix turned down the lead role in Doctor Strange, it was because he couldn't handle the multi-picture deal enforced by Marvel Studios. But a plethora of other actors and actresses are turning down certain roles in these superhero adventures for a completely different reason. They're afraid a better character might come along. And it would be impossible to play two different characters in the McU, right? Well, maybe not. Zachary Levi, who plays a smaller, yet very important role in Thor: The Dark World, posed this question to Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige. And his answer may surprise you.
Some where surprised to see Chris Evans win the title role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger. Simply because he'd already played Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch) in both 2005's Fantastic Four and the 2007 sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Some felt it »
Back in August we got a first look at Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) as John Stratton in director Simon West’s (Con Air) adaptation of the Duncan Falconer book series, and now with production wrapping we have a new image of Cooper in the action-thriller…
“We’ve got Bond, who’s an instutution,” states West. “But we don’t have anyone else. I felt there was a gap for a British action hero that was an alternative to Bond. More gritty and realistic, but just as fun.”
Stratton is set for release next year, and sees Cooper’s Sbs operative teaming up with a Us Navy Seal (Austin Stowell) in order to take down an international terrorist cell. Cooper and Stowell are joined in the cast are Gemma Chan, Tom Felton, Thomas Kretschmann, Derek Jacobi, Connie Nielsen and Jake Fairbrother.

When The Hollywood Reporter announced yesterday that Pacific Rim 2: Maelstrom was on “indefinite hold”, they said that Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. saw Warcraft was one of the reasons. They also noted that the film based on the best-selling game was a, “problem movie”. However it’s director, Duncan Jones, has jumped to the film’s defense.
Check out the tweet below:
@Clawx I wouldn’t worry about that. Universal moved us to the same date as Jurassic World, so we must have done something right!
— Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) September 16, 2015
It should be noted that Warner Bros. and Legendary probably don’t see Warcraft as a “problem movie” because of its quality, but more likely because it’s a video game movie which have not had much success in the past. Recently, Hitman: Agent 47 stalled at the box office with only $21 million domestically. And with a huge budget »

After playing Steve Rogers’ best friend in Captain America: The First Avenger, Sebastian Stan made a surprise return (to non-comic book fans at least) as a brainwashed Bucky in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. However, he’s set to take on an even bigger role in Civil War as part of “Team Cap”, and if that

It remains to be seen whether or not Disney and Marvel Studios are happy enough with Ant-Man's box office performance to give a sequel the green light, especially as they're more than likely waiting to see just how much of a boost it gets from China, Japan, and its eventual home video release. There's no denying that the movie has done well (it's outgrossed Captain America: The First Avenger, and that still got a sequel), but probably not as much as Marvel were hoping for given the success of their other movies. Will this be the case for the likes of Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel? That remains to be seen. Regardless, Ant-Man is now closing in on $400 million worldwide with a $394.741 million haul. It opens in Japan next weekend and in China on October 16th, so it's going to be interesting to see how close to $500 million »
