Captain America: Civil War Will Have Daniel Bruhl Play The Villainous Helmut Zemo

23 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Daniel Bruhl has briefly alluded to his involvement in next year’s Captain America: Civil War in the past, the Rush actor confirmed to The Independent that he will be playing one Baron Helmut Zemo in the Russo brothers’ hotly-anticipated sequel.

As the son of Heinrich Zemo, Bruhl’s character has a long history within the Marvel comics, first appearing all the way back in 1973. His origin story reveals that, after falling into a boiling hot broth of his father’s Adhesive X chemical compound, Helmut is mutated beyond recognition. If Marvel remains true to this interpretation, it’s likely that the actor will don extensive make-up in the final film, though any questions of cosmetics doesn’t dampen Bruhl’s excitement in the slightest.

Here he is talking to The Independent in relation to his part in Civil War.

Is The Spider-Man Reboot Titled Spider-Man: The New Avenger?

27 April 2015 6:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he’s no longer affiliated with Latino Review, scoopster extraordinaire El Mayimbe (aka Umberto Gonzales) is still working hard to break comic-book news for impatient superhero aficionados the world over. And yesterday, he emerged with a rather interesting rumor about Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man reboot, which will bring the wall-crawler into the Marvel Cinematic Universe under the watchful eye of Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige. According to El Mayimbe, the title of the pic is not Spectacular Spider-Man, as previously rumored, but Spider-Man: The New Avenger.

Now, clunky as it is, that subtitle would allow Feige to bring Spidey closer to the McU and distance him from Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man films. It would also confirm what many already suspect – that Spider-Man will become a member of the second Avengers lineup, which will be formed following the cataclysmic events of Captain America: Civil War.

Benedict Cumberbatch pumps iron to become Doctor Strange

27 April 2015 2:01 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Benedict Cumberbatch is feeling the pressure to gain weight for his next movie role. The 38-year-old actor - who starred in 'The Imitation Game' in 2014, and also appears in the BBC show 'Sherlock' - is said to be struggling to build muscle for his superhero role, as Doctor Strange, in the forthcoming Marvel film. An insider told The Sun newspaper: ''Doctor Strange was always muscly in the cartoons so Benedict has to look the part when they start filming in the autumn. ''Skinny Sherlock Holmes will be the last thing anyone thinks about.'' Benedict had to undergo a similarly grueling fitness regime in preparation for his starring role in the 2013 hit 'Star Trek Into Darkness', which he subsequently described as the most physically demanding role of his career. He said: ''I had to do a lot of training and I did a lot of eating. »

Rumor: Working Title Of Spider-man Reboot Is Spider-man: The New Avenger

26 April 2015 4:37 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Spider-Man: The New Avenger? According to Umberto Gonzales (who is no longer part of Latino-Review and is instead creating his own site), that might be the title of Marvel's Spider-Man reboot.  It's strictly a rumour for now, and chances are that those previous reports about the movie being called Spectacular Spider-Man were correct. However, Spider-Man: The New Avenger works a lot better, especially as it will make it clear to regular moviegoers that this version of the wall-crawler exists in the same world as The Avengers, and not the one created by The Amazing Spider-Man movies. Kevin Feige will want to do everything possible to distance this franchise from that one. This title would also confirm that Spidey will be a member of the team which rumour has it will be led by Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe following the events of Captain America: Civil War. »

"Doctor Strange" To Appear In "Iron Fist"?

24 April 2015 6:31 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One character people had hoped to see in either "Avengers: Age of Ultron" or the upcoming "Captain America: Civil War" is that of Doctor Strange whom Benedict Cumberbatch is slated to play.

A new rumour from Bleeding Cool, which has fairly accurately broken some Marvel scoops in the past, says that Marvel could be introducing the character in "Iron Fist" - one of their upcoming Netflix TV shows.

It's unclear if Cumberbatch will actually play the character in the flesh on the series, though it sounds like he may lend his voice talents. The only previous suggestion of the character was a brief mention in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" last year. »

Rumor: Doctor Strange To Debut On Netflix's Iron Fist Before His Solo Movie

24 April 2015 | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Like any rumor we'll have to take this with the requisite pinch of salt, but Bleeding Cool have been on point with some of their Marvel related scoops recently (we won't say which ones, but if you've seen Avengers: Age Of Ultron you'll know) so it's probably best to pay attention at least. According to their sources, Marvel plans to introduce the character of Doctor Strange in one of their upcoming Netflix TV shows; specifically Iron Fist. They're not sure whether Benedict Cumberbatch will actually play the character in the flesh, but reckon it's a good bet that he'll "at least do the voice." We know Marvel like to lay the groundwork before introducing a new character to the McU whenever possible, and aside from a brief mention in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it's been all quiet on the Strange front.

Rumor: Doctor Strange will be introduced on Netflix's Iron Fist series

24 April 2015 2:20 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Here's a tasty rumor to start your day: Bleeding Cool has heard Doctor Strange will first debut on Netflix's Iron Fist series before his solo movie. The site doesn't know if star Benedict Cumberbatch will actually appear on the show (e.g. filming the character in shadows so you can't tell it's not the actor), but they believe it's very likely Cumberbatch will "at least do the voice." This would make sense since both Doctor »

Doctor Strange Will Make His First Appearance On Iron Fist

23 April 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

And the Marvel rumors just keep on coming. Over the past couple of weeks, speculation has been flying at a furious pace around the internet, with everyone claiming that they have some kind of scoop on Marvel’s ever expanding cinematic universe. Now, as Avengers: Age of Ultron gears up to hit theatres in the Us, we have another intriguing bit of news that involves one of the studio’s phase 3 films: Doctor Strange.

According to Bleeding Cool, the sorcerer supreme will be making his debut on Iron Fist, one of Marvel’s Netflix shows that’s coming down the pipeline. Does this mean that Benedict Cumberbatch will be putting in some face time as well? The website’s sources weren’t clear on that matter, as the studio may just choose to show the character in a way where we don’t see his full face. However, as Bleeding Cool notes, »

Flickering Myth’s 2015 Preview – Avengers: Age of Ultron

16 April 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary Collinson previews Avengers: Age of Ultron

“I was designed to save the world. People would look to the sky, and see hope… I’ll take that from them first.”

There’s little doubt that – on paper, at least – 2015 is shaping up to be one of the biggest years in memory when it comes to blockbuster cinema, with the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road, Tomorrowland, San Andreas, Jurassic World, Terminator Genisys, Ant-Man, Mission: Impossible 5, The Fantastic Four and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. are all set to grace the big screen over the next few months. But before then Marvel Studios will kick-start the summer movie season in April (or early May, for those in the States) with what is perhaps the most anticipated of all the summer releases, as Joss Whedon reassembles Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for Marvel StudiosAvengers: Age of Ultron.

Benedict Cumberbatch could use a British accent in Doctor Strange

15 April 2015 5:09 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Benedict Cumberbatch could use his natural British accent in Marvel's Doctor Strange.

The neurosurgeon-turned-cosmic sorcerer has traditionally been depicted as being American through the 52-year history of the Marvel comic book.

Ethan Hawke reveals he came "close" to playing Marvel's Doctor Strange

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently told MTV News that no decisions have yet been made on if the big-screen version of Stephen Strange will be re-imagined as British yet.

"It's a good question," Feige said of Doctor Strange's accent. "We have not discussed the accent with him yet, but he's Benedict Cumberbatch, so I think he can do anything we ask him."

The executive also hinted that director Scott Derrickson could shoot some sections of Doctor Strange in New York.

Benedict Cumberbatch calls for support of independent cinema

14 April 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Imitation Game and Sherlock star issues call for support after backing the UK’s oldest operating purpose-built cinema.

British actor Benedict Cumberbatch has called for people to “keep supporting independent cinema” after being confirmed as a patron of the Phoenix Cinema in the East Finchley area of London.

He joins the likes of director Ken Loach and critic Mark Kermode in supporting the venue, where the Sherlock star will attend special events, introduce screenings and take part in Q&As.

Cumberbatch, who will be seen in the upcoming Marvel movie Doctor Strange and heard as the voice of Shere Khan in Jungle Book: Origins, described the century-old cinema as “a special place”.

“We are all so lucky to be part of the magic that is cinema (on both sides of the screen) and it’s so important that we all work to preserve and develop it for generations to come,” he added.

Kevin Feige Sets The Record Straight On The New Spider-Man And State Of The McU

13 April 2015 12:45 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Anthony Devlin/Pa Archive

Just about every major-player movie blog in the Us has been pestering Kevin Feige this weekend, using the Avengers: Age of Ultron junket to pan for headlines.

Thankfully, Feige is an old hand at handling this sort of pseudo-interview. You can see him on good form in this video from MTV where, essentially, he’s just asked to provide news on a series of Marvel projects, one by one, as if the interviewer were reading from a list. Which he is.

For those who cannot listen to the audio in that video, here are the bullet points.

Right now, they’re looking for writers for Captain Marvel, not cast.

The new Spider-Man is Peter Parker because they’ve never done an McU one before. Miles Morales has “opportunities for sure” if things keep working out.

Feige says the field is wide with Spider-Man casting, though they »

12 April 2015 11:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in October, Marvel finally confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will play the title character in Doctor Strange. We haven't heard much about the project since then, but we reported in January that actor Chiwetel Ejiofor was being eyed for a supporting role, although no details about his character were revealed. Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige recently spoke with MTV, where he was asked if Benedict Cumberbatch will use his native British accent when portraying Stephen Strange. Here's what the producer had to say below.

"It's a good question. We have not discussed the accent with him yet, but he's Benedict Cumberbatch, so I think he can do anything we ask him."

The producer also revealed that director Scott Derrickson is currently scouting locations in New York City, with principal photography slated to begin this November.
