Still further bits of information about the impending third "Captain America" are coming out of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo as they continue press rounds for the Blu-ray release of 'Winter Soldier' on September 9th.
Asked by Screen Rant if the Red Skull could make a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe following his seeming transport across the galaxy at the end of "Captain America: The First Avenger," the pair couldn't get specific but aren't dismissing the possibility either:
"We can't really comment specifically in terms of where we're going with it, just because we don't want to spoil anything for anybody. But certainly, look. That's the great thing about the Marvel universe, is anything is possible. All these characters exist. And as we've seen on the publishing side, there's very inventive, creative ways to make characters relevant again and surprising ways to make the characters relevant again. »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are continuing to make the press rounds for Marvel's Phase Two Blu-ray release on September 9. In doing so, the filmmaking duo continue to drop new tidbits about their impending sequel Captain America 3.
The brothers are returning to direct, with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely currently writing the screenplay, the same team behind Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. When Robert Redford was revealed to be a villainous character in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, some thought he may be a present-day version of Red Skull, a character who hasn't been seen since escaping in Captain America: The First Avenger.
In an interview with Screen Rant, when asked if Red Skull could make a return to the McU, Anthony Russo wouldn't offer any specific story details, he did hint that anything is possible in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »
Film fans can be some of the most passionate fans in the world. Many cinephiles have their rooms filled and walls covered with posters, models, books, and strange odds and ends. Some of the wealthier movie fanatics are privileged (and slightly crazy) enough to take home pieces of cinema history themselves at great costs.
Robot Mafia has an inforgraph created by Joe MacFarland that details the prices of the 33 most expensive props in history. There are some obvious ones like Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber from Star Wars at $240,000, the Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz at $660,000, and James Bond’s Aston Martin from Godleneye at a whopping $4,408,456.
The most recent prop on the list is a vial of the soldier soldier serum from 2011′s Captain America: The First Avenger at $3,959. The oldest item is King Kong himself, or at least what remains of him in the form of the »

The project is based on Daniel Simon's 2007 concept art book of the same name, which features a number of futuristic vehicle designs. Daniel Simon served as the lead vehicle designer on Tron Uprising and Captain America: The First Avenger, while also serving as a concept artist on Oblivion.
The Cosmic Motors book shows readers vehicle designs from a "planet" known as Galaxion. Here's an excerpt from the author's official website regarding the book.
"Come explore the vehicle designs of a far away galaxy called Galaxion where futuristic concepts exist in everyday life. Nine different spaceships, pods, race cars, giant trains, warships and balloons from various planets of the Galaxion system are shown from concept to completion."
No story details were given for this feature adaptation, which will be produced by Michael Bay. »
Daniel Simon got his first big screen credit for his work as a vehicle designer on Tron: Legacy and ever since, he’s been adding more and more titles to his resume. And it makes sense the guy’s getting more work. Have you seen his book Cosmic Motors? It’s absolutely loaded with incredible vehicle designs that he puts in a fictional realm called Galaxion, a place where futuristic concepts aren’t relegated to artwork, but actually exist. Clearly Michael Bay enjoys doing out-of-this-world things with cars on the big screen, so it should come as no surprise that he’s the one developing the Cosmic Motors movie. Hit the jump to find out who Bay just recruited to pen the screenplay. According to Variety, Bay and Warner Bros. just hired Kyle Ward, the scribe behind Machete Kills and Agent 47, to write the Cosmic Motors screenplay. Ward also »

Hayley Atwell will reprise the role of Peggy Carter on the small screen in early 2015, and Marvel have announced two additions to the cast of the eight part Agent Carter TV series. It will air when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. takes a hiatus and is set before the events of the Marvel One-Shot which was included on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray.
Chad Michael Murray (Fruitvale Station) has been cast in the role of Ssr Agent Jack Thompson, while Enver Gjokaj (Dollhouse) will portray Agent Daniel Sousa, both of whom will meet Carter while she takes on a new role at the Ssr in New York City. Both are newly created characters, so we can’t turn to the comic books for details!

Marvel and ABC’s Agent Carter has kicked off its casting, with Enver Gjokaj (Dollhouse) and Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill) joining Hayley Atwell in the upcoming series, which will explore the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D. following the events of Captain America: The First Avenger.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Gjokaj will play Agent Daniel Sousa, while Murray is set as Agent Jack Thompson, both of whom meet Carter while she takes on a new role at the pre-s.H.I.E.L.D. Strategic Scientific Reserve in New York City.”
The news confirms a report from back in July which stated that Sousa and Thompson would be appearing as supporting characters in the show. Assuming no other names have been changed, we should expect Deputy Director Roger Hooley, Agent Edward Hutchins and waitress Angie Martinelli to be cast soon.

Here’s some good news for everyone looking forward to Marvel’s Agent Carter series. The studio’s second foray into primetime television looks really promising — it’s a kicky period piece with some great talent attached to it — but we don’t actually know much about it. They didn’t shoot a pilot (the Agent Carter Marvel One-Shot stood in for that), and as of San Diego Comic-Con, they hadn’t written any scripts. All we really know is that Hayley Atwell is returning to the role, and it is set in the immediate aftermath of World War 2 (and Steve Rogers' "death") and focuses on the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the titular agent’s struggles as a badass woman in a male-dominated industry.
But today Marvel has made two casting announcements, one fantastic, and one kind of meh. On the fantastic front, »

Released in 2007, the book shows different vehicle creations for a sci-fi universe in each chapter. Simon explains the design and purpose behind each »

The upcoming ABC series Agent Carter has won the title of being the first Marvel Studios project to feature a female lead (not counting the One-Shot that inspired the show), in the form of Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter. Atwell’s Captain America: The First Avenger costar Dominic Cooper will be making at least the occasional appearance as Howard Stark on the series, but we now know of two more actors who should each have a fairly consistent presence on the show.
Marvel has confirmed that Enver Gjokaj and Chad Michael Murray have joined the cast for Agent Carter. According to Deadline, Gjokaj will play the “sweet and honorable” Daniel Sousa, a seasoned war veteran who ...

After appearing as "young cop" in The Avengers, Enver Gjokaj will return to the Marvel Universe, this time with a much larger role in the upcoming Agent Carter tv series. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gjokaj will play Agent Daniel Sousa, who "will meet Carter while she takes on a new role at the pre-shield Strategic Scientific Reserve in New York City."

Gjokai is best known for playing Victor in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse, but he's also appeared in the likes of The Walking Dead, Dexter and Witches of East End.

It follows Steve Rogers' (Chris Evans) girlfriend Agent Carter (Atwell) as she builds her career as a secret agent while the hero is frozen in ice.

We all know that the members of the Avengers team from the first movie are all coming back for Avengers: Age of Ultron and that they’ll be augmented by Paul Bettany as The Vision and Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as the magical-don’t-call-us-mutant brother and sister duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. However, a rumor originating from Badass Digest suggests a much bigger sea change is on the horizon. Possible Age of Ultron Spoilers ahead…
The very nature and fun of the Avengers team is its revolving door, which allows for greater tonal shifts as the remaining characters evolve. Throughout the comics there have been several major change ups to the roster. As Devin from Badass points out, after only being introduced as a member in Avengers #4, Captain America replaced all of the original team members in Avengers #16. Well, it looks like Cap could be reorganizing the team »

Badass Digest reveals that, at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America (Chris Evans) will assemble a brand new team of Avengers for Phase Three. While the site wouldn't reveal who this new team will include, one name that has been in every version of the script is Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel. However, now Marvel is "having cold feet" about bringing Captain Marvel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe this way.
The exact lineup of the new Avengers has not been finalized, and this scene was not shot during principal photography, which wrapped earlier this month. Marvel reportedly may pull Captain Marvel from this new lineup because they aren't sure if »
