Who 'Captain America: Civil War' Writers Want to See on Screen in a Marvel Flick

18 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This week will herald in Captain America: Civil War, a film that seems to be the culmination of the past twelve films that have been released over the course of the past eight years. It's something of a milestone that we've reached this point -- where we've come to know these characters so much that we're able to understand why they're coming to blows. And by the film's end, many of us hope that it will be a fulfilling experience.

Though while Civil War may be quit the milestone, it's by no means anywhere near the end. Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely -- who have been writing in this world since Captain America: The First Avenger -- are already hard at work on the next big thing in the McU: Infinity War, a story which will span two epic films. But even then, Marvel Studios has their eyes to the future. »

Chris Evans talks Captain America, directing, and his place in the Marvel Universe

3 May 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Bam! Pow! Call it a one-two punch for superhero fans. First DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice slams into theatres at the end of March, then just six weeks later Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War delivers the follow-up blow.

Of the two, the Marvel entry is the wily veteran. It’s the 13th Avengers film (if you count The Incredible Hulk and Guardians of the Galaxy), and the film that launches us into “Phase 3” of the phenomenally successful franchise. Star Chris Evans is playing Cap — the scrawny but noble World War II soldier turned into a brawny and still noble superhero — for the fifth time, after Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the two Avengers films.

But this time is different.

We’re finally paying attention to the scores of largely unseen humans who’ve died or been maimed as the Avengers »

Film Review: Captain America: Civil War

2 May 2016 10:03 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Synopsis:  Political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sharply disagrees and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) must pick a side.

Exhale. Since announcing the third chapter in Captain America's trilogy would be Civil War, the nights have been long. That may seem extreme, but the exhale is one of satisfaction. Captain America: Civil War is just as good as everyone wanted it to be. Do you know how rare that is? Unless we're talking about a Uwe Boll film (ugh), the last time it happened was The Dark Knight. Speaking of which, it's absolutely »

Examining Hollywood Remakes--Captain America: The First Avenger

2 May 2016 9:38 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Our series on remakes continues and this time we’ve got one that you may not even realize was filmed in live-action before. In honor of the release of Captain America: Civil War on Friday, we’re talking about the star spangled man with the plan. This week, Cinelinx looks at Captain America: The First Avenger.

 It’s not too often that a remake is much, much, much better than the original but we have one of those rare instances in the case of Captain America. Years before Captain America: The First Avenger, the first movie version of the star-spangled hero of WW2 was filmed in 1990 and directed by Albert Pyun.

This movie…was awful! It has a 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and went directly to a video release, wisely bypassing theaters to prevent millions of people demanding their money back. Captain America is played in this mess by Matt Salinger, »

Captain America: Civil War Writers Reveal If The Infinity Stones Will Appear

1 May 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When it comes to the ongoing mysteries and unanswered questions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, nothing trumps the Infinity Stones. The powerful MacGuffins have had a presence in the McU since the Tesseract in Captain America: The First Avenger, and the collection of all six stones by Thanos will be a huge point of The Avengers: Infinity War. So far there are four confirmed stones, with two . the Time and Soul stones . still unaccounted for. It.s fun to speculate which movies they.ll appear in, but now we.ve got confirmation one of those movies isn't Captain America: Civil War. This news comes straight from the red carpet premiere of Captain America: Civil War, where ComicBook.com was able to interview the writers of the film, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. McFeely and Markus were asked if any new Infinity Stones would be premiering in the movie, and after »

New Civil War Video Shows Cap's Journey Through The McU

30 April 2016 8:46 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Out of all the characters in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, none has gone on a longer journey than Steve Rogers. From his humble, scrawny beginnings in the early 1940s, The First Avenger has become one of the McU’s most heroic and reliable players. It’s been an emotional ride that will undoubtedly come to a head in Captain America: Civil War. Luckily for us fans, a new video has just hit the web highlighting Cap’s journey through the McU. Check it out below to see for yourself.     Take a moment to wipe your tears after watching that video. The trailer moves chronologically though Steve Rogers’ journey, starting with his earliest days before his participation in Project Rebirth during the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. Highlighting his glory days during the Second World War, the trailer then shows how he »

Box Office: Captain America: Civil War Set To Beat Marvel's The Avengers Domestic Opening

29 April 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Marvel's The Avengers opened to a massive $207 million back in 2012, and that was thought to be the peak of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in terms of domestic openings. However, the box office experts now have Captain America: Civil War opening to a whopping $213 million, which would make it the second biggest domestic opener just behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($247 million).  This is great news for Marvel and Disney! In comparison, Captain America: The First Avenger opened to $65 million and Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened to $95 million. In an even better comparison, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opened to a disappointing $166 million. If this projection is indeed true, that would put it at almost $50 million more than the critically panned Zack Snyder film.  Captain America: Civil War has already opened in international territories and is breaking records. On top of that, the film is the most critically-acclaimed Marvel film yet. »

The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another.

How Each Marvel Movie Leads Into Captain America: Civil War

27 April 2016 5:14 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Joe and Anthony Russo.s Captain America: Civil War caps off the trilogy that began with Joe Johnston.s Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2011, but it is so much more than just another film about Chris Evans. Steve Rogers. In fact, there are key elements of the movie that can be traced back to just about every single Marvel Studios title that has come before it, really giving it the sense that things have all been leading to this point (even when there.s still so much more to go). Of course, this means that having a refresher course on the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be quite useful, so that.s exactly what we.re here to provide. Below you.ll find that we.ve gone movie-by-movie, starting with 2008.s Iron Man, and have examined exactly how each title has influenced the McU to this point and what »

As we get closer and closer to the release of Captain America: Civil War hitting theaters on May 6, some fans are revisiting the entire Captain America franchise.

Marvelous DA7E's Captain America: Civil War

20 April 2016 2:08 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This column could be a lot of things. Like, what’s going on with those Iron Fist set photos? Danny Rand looks like people that used to go to Cu Boulder when I was in high school. One of my college roommates walked around NYC with bare feet for a few days and we all thought that was a horrible idea.

However, I got to go to one of the fan screenings for Captain America: Civil War thanks to my relentless tweeting of both the #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan hashtags and my propensity to constantly have Twitter open when I’m doing other things. That meant the good, old fashioned lining up with other excited Marvel fans experience last Thursday and I was all in for that.

In brief- Here’s the good news about Captain America: Civil War: there’s a lot of good news. Here’s the bad »

A Town Called Vulcan: Star Trek Haven of the North

19 April 2016 10:48 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Stardate, 2016. We start off for… hold up. I have a confession. I am not a Trekkie. I owe no allegiance to the myriad TV iterations, although I am fond of the original mid-’60s series and their subsequent big screen adventures (except for The Final Frontier—I am reasonably lucid). However, this particular voyage is co-captained by my wife, Michelle, who has a deep fondness for the original gang and their follow-up crew of The Next Generation (which I don’t like, and yet she still married me). She can identify scenes by hearing orchestral movements from the series and the films. In short, she is a Trekkie (and yes, I asked her permission to call her that—I’m not insane).

Okay, let’s try this again. My wife and I leave the big city of Calgary, Alberta behind for a day trip to visit the Trekcetera Museum, located »

'Captain America: Civil War' Tracking For Huge Opening

19 April 2016 7:14 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Marvel Studios is getting ready to pop some champagne bottles.

The studio is getting ready to release Captain America: Civil War, and it's looking to be the biggest film in that particular series. Captain America: The First Avenger opened to $65 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier- which brought in $95 million. This time around, Cap will be joined by several super-powered friends, and the expected haul for the film, domestically, is $175 million.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, that figure could go as high as $200 million, based on the strength of the current tracking numbers. Awareness is high; Reviews are fantastic; and the Marvel brand has never been stronger. Mix in the fact that this will feature the McU debut of Spider-Man, and it's a perfect storm for the studio. 

The international figure isn't being discussed at the moment, but they're definitely something to look out for. Something I've »

Review: The Captain America trilogy comes to an amazing close with 'Civil War'

18 April 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

My first political memory is of Watergate. I was too young to truly understand what was happening, but I was aware that the President of the United States had done something wrong, and the country was upset because of it. That may be why I’ve grown up with a healthy sense of skepticism towards authority, particularly when it comes to the idea that authority is always right. I’ve never believed that, and that attitude has served me well. Truth be told, I wish that was not the case. I wish I could believe that our elected officials have our best interests at heart. I wish I believed that all policemen truly wanted to serve and protect our entire population equally. I wish I believed that the banks were designed to help us all financially. I wish I believed that the system was set up to allow all of »

Film Review: ‘Captain America: Civil War’

13 April 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The shaming of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” will continue apace — or better still, be forgotten entirely — in the wake of “Captain America: Civil War,” a decisively superior hero-vs.-hero extravaganza that also ranks as the most mature and substantive picture to have yet emerged from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Very much an “Avengers” movie in scope and ambition if not title (the conspicuous absence of Thor and Hulk notwithstanding), this chronicle of an epic clash between two equally noble factions, led by Captain America and Iron Man, proves as remarkable for its dramatic coherence and thematic unity as for its dizzyingly inventive action sequences; viewers who have grown weary of seeing cities blow up ad nauseam will scarcely believe their luck at the relative restraint and ingenuity on display. Buoyed by hearty critical support, 3D ticket premiums and enormous fan-ticipation, Disney’s May 6 release should have little trouble »
