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." Apparently the show will be set seven years after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger, and will focus on Peggy Carter as she struggles to adapt to life after losing Steve Rogers, all the while carrying out "secret missions" for Howard Stark. 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.

We got a new poster earlier in the week, and now Sony has dropped another trailer for Foxcatcher, the upcoming biographical drama starring Steve Carell (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues), Channing Tatum (22 Jump Street) and Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers); check it out below…
When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz’s bid for Gold and the chance to “coach” a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his »

(Cbr) The "Age of Ultron" will soon be upon us, and Clint Barton is armoring up accordingly. Empire has a high-res look at Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," depicting the eagle-eyed archer’s new costume. The big news: sleeves! It’s much more of a superhero uniform than what Hawkeye wore in his first "Avengers" tour of duty, but alas, still no mask. In the same feature, director Joss Whedon gives new details about what to expect from his follow-up to "The Avengers," and what he has planned for the titular robot menace. “It’s more epic and in other ways it’s more noirish and suspect and devious and specific,” he said. “Ultron, he’s got a touch of the apocalypse in him.” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige adds, “Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for the Avengers. »

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 »
In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Robert Downey Jr., the star of Marvel’s “Iron Man” series as well as “The Avengers,” said he thought that this summer’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is the best Marvel film to date.
“Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever,” Downey Jr. told the newspaper. “And it’s odd for someone with — on occasion — an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”
Downey Jr., whose upcoming film “The Judge” will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 4, said he was impressed that Marvel was able to take a group of less well known characters from their comic books and turn them into a successful film.
“It’s like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: ‘Look, this is their second cousin and we think he has a »

Warner Bros. have released a new poster for The Judge, the upcoming thriller and family drama which sees Iron Man and Avengers Assemble star Robert Downey Jr. as a successful defence attorney who ends up battling it out with Fargo’s Billy Bob Thornton (in the courtroom) after he reluctantly returns home for his mother’s funeral.
It’s then that he discovers that his estranged father (The Godfather’s Robert Duvall), the town’s judge who now suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder and is set to stand trial for the crime.
David Dobkin is directing the movie which marks the first project from Robert Downey Jr. and his wife/producing partner Susan Downey’s production company. The Judge is big departure for Dobkin compared to his previous work, and the recent trailer made it look a lot different to the likes of Fred Claus and Wedding Crashers! »

"It's odd for someone with - on occasion - an ego the size of mine to actually say that," said Downey at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of The Judge (via Comic Book Movie).
"We're talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: 'Look!'
"It's like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: 'Look, this is »
With the Blu-ray and DVD release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on September 9, directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have recently been making the press rounds again for this Marvel Phase Two adventure. The filmmakers are already hard at work on the sequel, Captain America 3, which hits theaters in less than two years, on May 6, 2016.
There has been speculation that Captain America 3 will be the last movie to feature Chris Evans as the super soldier, especially since Steve Rogers handed over the Captain America mantle a number of times in the comics. After Tony Stark essentially "retired" his Iron Man suits in Iron Man 3, many have wondered if Captain America 3 will be the last time fans see Chris Evans as Cap.
It's been a banner year for Marvel so far, with Guardians of the Galaxy likely set to pass Captain America: The Winter Soldier sometime this week as the top-grossing movie of 2014. Many fans believe this Marvel Phase Two adventure, which expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, is the studio's best offering yet.
Add Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., to the list of fans, with the actor revealing at the Toronto International Film Festival, that he believes Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel's best movie yet.
"Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever. And it's odd for someone with - on occasion - an ego the size of mine to actually say that!"
Captain America: The Winter Soldier kicked of the 2014 blockbuster season with a bang, and though it may eventually be eclipsed by Guardians of the Galaxy in box office earnings, Cap’s first sequel was an unequivocal smash hit. Of course, this means our expectations for Captain America 3 are very high.
Knowing how The Winter Soldier ended – including the film’s post-credit scene – we have a pretty good idea of where the series is heading. Returning directors Anthony and Joe Russo have already confirmed Cap 3 will indeed deal with Steve (Chris Evans) and Bucky’s (Sebastian Stan) complex relationship. And it’s presumed that after his stint in The Avengers: Age ...

Jessica Chastain has called for a female superhero movie to be released.
"Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don't understand it, why is it taking so long for this?" she declared to The Wrap. "This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies."
Chastain continued: "Lucy, didn't it beat Hercules by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she's a great actress. Under the Skin is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson?
"To me, it's a no-brainer. You want to make money, »
Jeremy Renner recently appeared in an episode of Larry King Now, and the follwing clip has been released of him discussing his role as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It kicks off with some talk about how he landed the part, as well as what's in store for Clint Barton after Avengers: Age of Ultron ("No man, I don’t die. They are going to keep me around for a while."). Of course, thanks to the recent reveal that he may be turning up in Captain America 3, that's no great surprise! Oh, and before you go getting too hysterical about that "We're not doing Shakespeare" comment, pay close attention to what Renner then says about how a movie like The Avengers differs to more serious projects and why the role of Hawkeye still involves giving it his 100%.

Robert Downey Jr. starred in some of Marvel Studios most profitable films, but in a recent interview he admitted the production company's best effort might be one he skipped: “Guardians of the Galaxy.” “‘Galaxy’ in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever,” Robert Downey Jr. told the Toronto Sun. “And it's odd for someone with — on occasion — an ego the size of mine to actually say that!” Also read: Robert Downey Jr. Drama ‘The Judge’ to Open Toronto Film Festival Downey Jr., of course, plays iconic comic book hero Iron Man in “The Avengers” and all three “Iron Man” films, »

Marvel Studios has firmly established itself as one of the biggest - if not the biggest - brands in Hollywood. After six years of releasing movies, the company has not only made two of the highest grossing films of all time - Joss Whedon's The Avengers and Shane Black's Iron Man 3 - but also has proven able to take a property that nobody has ever heard of and turn it into gold. Guardians of the Galaxy had more than its fair share of detractors when it was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, but now that particular project has made more than half a billion dollars at the global box office and can be called the biggest hit domestically of the summer season. The numbers are in, and at the time of this article's publication, Box Office Mojo says that James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy »
Empire has released the above new picture from behind-the-scenes of Avengers: Age of Ultron featuring Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and director Joss Whedon showing him how to properly shoot his bow. Meanwhile, Renner recently spoke with Collider and gave hints we may be seeing more of Hawkeye sooner rather than later. "There are rumblings of Captain America 3," he said. "I don't know what's going to happen there. I've got to find the time, man. Laughs I'm trying to stay home and I can't." At the same time, Captain America 3 co-director Joe Russo talked about what other Avengers may be showing up in the new film similar to Black Widow's (Scarlett Johansson) role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier saying they've already got someone set... could it be Hawkeyec "That's such a hard question because we've kind of already done that. Do they have to be under contract »

The October issue of Empire hits shelves on Thursday, and among its many joys is a look ahead to Avengers: Age Of Ultron, with an exclusive new image below, showing Joss Whedon directing Hawkeye. As if that weren't enough, both Marvel boss Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon share a little bit more of their nefarious plans for the superhero super-team this time around. Check out both below."It's more epic and in other ways it's more noirish and suspect and devious and specific," said Whedon of his film. "Ultron, he's got a touch of the apocalypse in him." Adds Feige, "Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for The Avengers."And then there are those intriguing glimpses, in concept art and Comic-Con footage, of a certain souped-up Iron Man suit called the Hulkbuster, and a conflict between Robert Downey Jr. »
Jeremy Renner has hinted that Hawkeye may be given a role in the third Captain America film. The actor recently confirmed ‘rumblings’ of the third film, and noted that he has a busy schedule with upcoming movies in a Collider interview.
Jeremy Renner’s character was given a small cameo in the first Thor film, and became one of Loki’s mind controlled minions in The Avengers. Due to these underwhelming roles it has been suggested that Hawkeye will receive a leading role in The Avengers 2, although this is speculation at the moment. By including Hawkeye in the sequel to The Winter Soldier, Marvel could give the character the screen time he deserves rather than have him in the background.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been expanding rapidly in recent years. It now crosses from television to cinema, and will soon include a number of Netflix shows. »

When Marvel and Netflix announced in November that they are developing four live-action TV shows based on comic book characters Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones, many fans wondered if these shows would cross over into the popular Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. While those plans have not been confirmed, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos revealed in an interview with Empire Magazine that the prospect of these shows crossing over into the McU has been discussed.
"It has definitely been talked about."
The executive went on to reveal that all of these programs, which are all set to debut in 2015 before all of these characters come together with The Defenders mini-series, were based on Marvel's Phase One theatrical model that culminated in Marvel's The Avengers.
"It was really based on the theatrical model of The Avengers. Could you take another group of characters, The Defenders, and go about it the same way? »
