Ant-Man Takes On Hawkeye In Latest Captain America: Civil War Concept Art

13 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Marvel Studios concept artist Andy Park has shared yet another piece from Captain America: Civil War, and after seeing Giant-Man staring down Captain America, this time we get a look at Ant-Man fighting Hawkeye. As Park points out, this was created based on information from an earlier version of the screenplay, and it's now clear that Scott Lang was at one stage going to be 100% #TeamIronMan.  What led to the change? If I had to hazard a guess, I'd bet that Ant-Man was going to be #TeamIronMan before Spider-Man joined the roster. Perhaps Tony Stark created this new costume for Scott, though how Hank Pym would have felt about that is hard to say! Whatever the answer, it's definitely interesting to look at what might have been, so here's hoping we get more pieces like this. These keyframes often are done pretty early on so scripts change/evolve. I enjoyed »

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Kevin Feige Explains Marvel's Plan for Future Movie Villains

29 September 2016 4:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though each and every Marvel superhero movie has been a critical and financial success, one of the biggest complaints has been the villains. They always seem to be mirror images of which ever superhero is getting his own standalone or spin-off. And most have been kind of lame. Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige claims that is all about to change soon.

The McU officially kicked off Marvel Phase 3 this summer with Captain America: Civil War, and in an interesting twist, the main villain was each other. Sure Baron Zemo stepped in towards the end to reveal his dastardly plan, and he was one of the first bad guys not to be a straight up doppleganger. Soon, Thanos will arrive to wreck havoc on the Marvel movie universe. And it sounds like the days of mirror-villains is almost nearing an end.

Most of the time, in the past Marvel movies, we've »

Marvel Head Honcho Kevin Feige Weighs In On McU’s Use Of Doppelgänger Villains

Cast your mind back to the formative years of the McU and Jon Favreau’s Iron Man, at a time when talk of a shared cinematic space was reserved for end-credits and subsequently channelled through Samuel L. Jackson’s glowering Nick Fury.

It was here that Marvel introduced Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark to the moviegoing masses, a character who would very much go on to become the anchor point of this most successful of cinematic universes. An instant hit with fans, Rdj’s portrayal of Marvel’s genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist was effortless at times, spewing smart quips even when doing battle with former friend and business partner, Obadiah Stane (Aka the Iron Monger).

Indeed, by the time we reached the finale of Favreau’s actioner, Tony Stark was ostensibly waging war against his doppelgänger, and it »

Kevin Feige Divulges Plan For More Varied Villains In The McU Moving Forward

29 September 2016 6:34 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Marvel Studios origin films typically begin with a hero rising to take down a villain possessing the same abilities they do.  Iron Man took on Iron Monger, Captain America battled Red Skull, Ant-Man tangled with Yellowjacket and the list goes on.  But that wasn't a symptom of happenstance, it was strategy, as explained by studio President Kevin Feige.  "Clearly we will get to that [non-doppelganger match ups]… You want to have characters that inhabit the same world when introducing a new world, a new mythology for lack of a better term. You want to explore that as much as you can," said the McU mastermind.  He went on to explain his strategy using Doctor Strange and  Kaecilius as an example, "....when you’re teaching an audience about sorcerers and that reality and you’re going to talk about the past anyway and you’re going to get into their history anyway, much better »

Hayley Atwell wants Marvel to make an Agent Carter movie

28 September 2016 2:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

ABC left a lot of Peggy Carter fans disappointed earlier this year when it decided to pull the plug on Agent Carter following its second season. Hayley Atwell has now moved on to another ABC show in Conviction, but she still has hopes of one day reprising the role of Peggy; the actress has previously discussed the possibility of an Agent Carter special, and now she’s revealed to Cbr that she’s also been pestering Marvel for a movie.

“I hound [Marvel Studios co-president Louis] D’Esposito on a regular basis, saying, ‘Give me a movie!’,” said Atwell. I think the great thing about Peggy is, we know from Winter Soldier that she lives a long life, so she can come back. I’m banking on, when I’m in my fifties, I’m like, ‘This is the time. Let’s see what Peggy’s up to in this decade.’”

Captain Marvel: Producer Gives Film Update And Talks Female Representation

28 September 2016 11:14 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The era of the female superhero film is coming! Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. We’re actually just getting a few female superhero films over the course of the next few years. The first is DC’s Wonder Woman, in which Gal Gadot will return as the titular character. On July 6, 2018, Marvel will be releasing Ant-Man and the Wasp, a film that will bring Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne to the forefront alongside Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang (a.k.a. Ant-Man). Coming relatively late to the game in March 2019 will be Captain Marvel, the studio’s first full-on female-led solo film, which stars Oscar-winner Brie Larson in the lead role.

In the grand scheme of things, these three films are but a fraction of the male-led superhero films out there, but all the same, this is an important step in the right direction, as studios »

Doctor Strange Warps Time and Space in 3 New Motion Posters

27 September 2016 5:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, Marvel Studios announced that fans will be treated to a sneak peek of the new Marvel Phase 3 adventure Doctor Strange with a special theatrical event on Monday, October 10. We also showed you new character posters featuring Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Night Nurse (Rachel McAdams) and Wong (Benedict Wong). Now we have new motion posters featuring all three characters. Marvel also released an IMAX trailer today with brand new footage, to get fans excited for the November 4 debut.

Doctor Strange will mark Marvel's second Phase 3 movie, behind this summer's blockbuster Captain America: Civil War, which currently has the biggest worldwide box office total of any movie this year, with $1.15 billion. Marvel's brand new adventures that introduce new characters into the McU, such as last year's Ant-Man, typically don't bring in huge numbers like the studio's blockbuster sequels, but they typically fare well.

Kevin Feige Defends Marvel Studios' Use Of Doppelganger Villains

27 September 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's no doubt that Marvel Studios has done a more-than-commendable job in establishing their cinematic universe. Back in 2008, the creation of a world that spans multiple franchises was, at the scope of these films, totally unprecedented. Would audiences be able to understand the cross-pollination between films? Would the films even be able to hold up over the course of several years? Could studios overcome the obstacle of stuffing their films with too many characters?

These were all very real questions, and while the result has been groundbreaking, it hasn't been perfect. One big and pervasive criticism are the villains. Marvel runs a very hero-centric cinematic universe, and if you have a world where the heroes are the highlight, it comes at an expense -- the villains. Oftentimes, their motivations are boring, and the schemes unbelievable, and more often than not, their abilities mirror that of the hero's making for relatively uninspired climaxes. »

Marvel's Doctor Strange: Kevin Feige Talks The Future Of Magic And Other Dimensions In the McU

27 September 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Doctor Strange is an odd film for Marvel. So far in their cinematic universe, things stayed relatively science fiction. A lot of the stuff on Earth has all sorts of crazy tech-heavy technology, but nothing that's so ridiculously unbelievable that it couldn't be explained away as pseudoscience. An the galactic scale, we've mostly been able to shrug off even the most outrageous of events and spectacles (like those in the Thor movies or in Guardians of the Galaxy) because, you know, it's set in space and on other planets.

With Doctor Strange, Marvel runs the risk of throwing all logic out the window in favor of magic. It's a double-edged sword for sure, and while this could ultimately help in increasing the longevity of the shared universe, it also has the potential to break any form of common sense already established in the world. And what about that one line in the original Thor, »

Peter Parker Has Costume Trouble in New Spider-Man: Homecoming Video

26 September 2016 5:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, we reported that Spider-Man: Homecoming wrapped production in Atlanta, as filming has shifted to the Big Apple, New York City. Today we have our first video from the new set, which reveals that Tom Holland's version of this iconic character has one subtle difference from previous wall-crawlers. We also have details of a scene he was shooting today in New York City, which may mean we could see one of the villains surfacing soon.

A number of Twitter users captured new video as production got under way in New York, which shows that young Peter Parker has some kinks to work out with his crime-fighting routine. While previous versions of this iconic character would simply wear the costume under their normal clothes, Tom Holland's Peter Parker hasn't figured this out yet, since he is seen entering an alley, where he strips down to his underwear »

Marvel submits Captain America: Civil War for awards consideration

26 September 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been reveled that last Friday (Sept 23rd), Marvel held a “for your consideration” screening of Captain America: Civil War – officially putting it forward for awards season.

Several Marvel Cinematic Universe movies – including Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Captain America: The Winter Solider, and Guardians of the Galaxy – have found themselves in the ‘technical’ categories, but they’ve never breached into Best Film or Best Actor territories. Could this be their first year?

It should be noted that several blockbusters do this (Michael Bay did it a few years ago with Transformers: Age of Extinction), and its highly likely the Academy will overlook the movie – despite it earning $1.2 billion at the box office with a 90% rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has gone on record several times to criticise the Academy for always overlooking summer tentpole »

Jon Favreau Talks Happy Hogan's Return in Spider-Man: Homecoming

25 September 2016 4:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Iron Man 3 hit theaters in 2013, many assumed it may be the last time fans would see Tony Stark's bodyguard/driver, Happy Hogan, played by Iron Man and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau. Fans were given quite the surprise earlier this month when it was confirmed that Happy Hogan would return in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is currently in production. While we still don't know how large or small his role is, Jon Favreau spoke about coming back to the McU.

Earlier this month, Jon Favreau was spotted in a photo released on Twitter by Robert Downey Jr., alongside Marvel President Kevin Feige, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland and Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. While we don't know for sure if Jon Favreau was in Atlanta to film his role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, it certainly is possible. Yahoo! Movies caught up with Jon Favreau, who »

The Russos considered killing an Avenger in Captain America: Civil War

25 September 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the build up to the release of Captain America: Civil War there was a lot of speculation as to whether Marvel would follow the Civil War comic book story arc with the death of Captain America, while one rumour even suggested that death scenes had been filmed for Falcon, War Machine and Scarlet Witch.

However, as we now know, the Avengers all came out of the movie alive and pretty much unscathed (well, not so much Rhodey), and during a Q&A in Hollywood this past Friday, directors Joe and Anthony Russo and producer Kevin Feige were asked about the lack of deaths in the movie. Their response is as follows (courtesy of HitFix):

Anthony Russo: We never talked about killing Cap in this one, right? no.

Joe Russo: We did for a beat. We talk about everything.

Anthony Russo: I think the thing to remember is, »

Why Didn't Any Avengers Die in Captain America: Civil War?

24 September 2016 1:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This shouldn't come as too much of a spoiler, but towards the end of Marvel Comics' Civil War storyline, Captain America bites the big one. And for months leading up to the release of Captain America: Civil War in theaters this past May, many fans believed Chris Evans' freedom fighter would face a similar fate. That never came to pass, though. And War Machine was the only Avenger who really even came close to dying, though everyone lived. Today, directors Joe and Anthony Russo discuss why that panned out in such fashion.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was speedster Quicksilver who didn't quite make it to end credits. And it showed that Marvel was willing to sacrifice a few of its characters for the greater good of storytelling. So many fans walked into Civil War expecting to see at least one major character's arc come to an end. »

Chris Evans, Margot Robbie, Paul Rudd And More Star In Jimmy Kimmel's Latest "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets"

22 September 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

"Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" has become one of the most popular features on Jimmy Kimmel Live in recent years, and the latest instalment (which happens to be the tenth) is packed full of faces which should be instantly recognisable to visitors of this site as they're forced to read some harsh insults! Among those with ties to the world of superheroes and comic books are Chris Evans (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War), Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Russell Crowe (Man of Steel), Bryan Cranston (Power Rangers), and Kiefer Sutherland (24). That's an impressive line-up, eh?  Anyway, these guys are probably sick of reading mean Tweets by now, so feel free to say something nice about them in the comments section below.

Warcraft Director Duncan Jones Announces Start Date For New Film: Mute

21 September 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Duncan Jones has had an interesting year. The young director, who's made a name for himself with films like Moon and Source Code, finally saw the release of a film that took up nearly three and a half years of his life: Warcraft. The expensive blockbuster film based on the hit video game more or less bombed stateside, but had an extravagant run overseas. Critically speaking, it also arrived with a bit of a thud, and it's thought that the chances of Warcraft leading to the franchise that Universal Pictures had hoped for are slim to none.

Somehow, despite the high-profile misfire of Warcraft, Jones has managed to walk away virtually unscathed. In fact, he's getting ready to start work on his next ambitious film, which is titled Mute. The flick will enter production next week, according to an announcement Jones made on twitter:

.@Mute_Film starts shooting in.... one week from today! »
