There have been a lot of set photos leaking out for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I don't know if you've noticed or not, but the movie seems to have a lot more to do with S.H.I.E.L.D. than is does The Winter Soldier. Marvel President Kevin Feige has described the film as being more of a "political thriller." Cbm have been putting the pieces together, and it seems the movie is going to be more based on the 1988 comic book series Nick Fury Vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.!
The site came up with six really solid convincing clues that help back up their claim. It was enough to convince me. The clues include details on Callan Mulvey being cast as Jack Rollins, Robert Redford's character Alexander Pierce, and a few other things including the major shootout with Fury that we posted a video of earlier today. »

The history of video adaptations is long and almost completely ugly, with nightmares like Silent Hill and Max Payne and Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li vastly outweighing modest successes like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and the Resident Evil franchise. But if anyone's gonna shake things up, it's Michael Fassbender, right? The star of Shame and X-Men: First Class might not be who you'd expect to shake up the video game adaptation racket, but as the star of the upcoming Assassin's Creed adaptation, he might be the hero we deserve after all. Now we know when this attempted rescue effort will happen-- updates at Box Office Mojo reveal that Assassin's Creed has set a release date of May 22, 2015, meaning it will arrive just a few weeks after The Avengers 2. In other updates, Ridley Scott's Exodus-- known otherwise as his Moses movie-- has set a release »
We talk a lot in this column about Marvel’s “phases,” a word that Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige uses to denote the TV season-like structure of their release slate. Phase One consisted of Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America and ended with The Avengers. Phase Two just began with the smash success of Iron Man 3 and will be followed by Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and cap off with The Avengers 2. And then what? Well, that’s a question Marvel is trying to answer for itself right now, as all of the films in Phase Two, with the exception of Avengers 2, are currently in production. Marvel is also facing a future in which it may not want to pay any of the...

Earlier this month at the Iron Man 3 red carpet premiere, Joss Whedon teased that The Avengers 2 could potentially feature a brother-sister act. A few days and rabid speculation later, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were rumored to be the duo that would cause trouble for Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the 2015 summer sequel. Whedon put an end to the speculation in an interview with IGN stating, "You know, they had a rough beginning. They're interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn't necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they're not there to make things easier. I'm not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier." The quote puts to rest speculation as to who would be the Avengers'...

Michael Fassbender's "Assassin's Creed" movie finally has been given a release date. The Ubisoft video game adaptation will be joining the increasingly crowded 2015 release slate, claiming the Memorial Day weekend slot with a May 22 premiere date.
Coming Soon has the release date news. Fassbender is attached to both star in the film and produce it, while Michael Lesslie is penning the screenplay. No director or other stars are attached at this time.
From the way things are shaping up, 2015 is looking to be the biggest movie year in recent history. "The Avengers 2," "Star Wars: Episode VII," "Avatar 2," "Justice League," "Ant-Man" and "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" are all slated to hit theaters in 2015, along with the "Fantastic Four" reboot, "Pirates of the Caribbean 5" and the "Finding Nemo" sequel "Finding Dory."
Meanwhile, studios are snapping up video game properties left and right, with films based on "Portal, »
Following the success of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers last year, which fast became one of the most successful movies of all time, talk very quickly turned to a sequel, and what Whedon would bring to the table for The Avengers 2.
The Avengers was such a game-changing, bar-raising movie, and it’s difficult to imagine (until we actually see it in 2015) what direction Whedon will go for The Avengers 2. I have complete faith that he’s going to outdo even himself – not just in terms of bigger blockbuster moments, but in terms of bringing us a character-driven movie that is every bit as entertaining as its predecessor (see our top ten list of who we think may appear here).
One of the things we’ve all naturally been wondering is who will be showing up for round two, amongst the faces we’ve already seen in the Marvel »

Just last month, Joss Whedon was teasing the addition of a brother-sister partnership to his super-team lineup for The Avengers 2, with tongues immediately set wagging among the online fan community. The names on everybody’s lips were those of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, with Whedon now confirming that the duo have made their way into his embryonic script. “You know, they had a rough beginning,” says Whedon of the double act, blessed with super-speed and the ability to perform chaos magic respectively. “They’re interesting...

UbiSoft isn't messing around in its ambitions to bring the Assassin's Creed franchise to the movies, and hopefully in the process break the curse of the videogame film. The early recruitment work it did certainly did no harm winning people over to its side, with Michael Fassbender signed on the star and produce in the film.
There's still no director attached to the Assassin's Creed movie, but we do now have a release date. The film has been earmarked for North American cinemas on May 22nd 2015. That puts it three weeks after the release of The Avengers 2, and possibly just a week or two away from Star Wars: Episode VII (the formal release date to which hasn't been announced yet).
There's stiff competition awaiting Assassin's Creed »

The hit rate of Latino Review when it comes to sizeable exclusives remains good, even though one or two stories have been fervently denied of late (specifically regarding The Avengers 2). Time will tell if that hit rate remains as good, but anyway, we'd always suggest taking such big rumours (including this one) with a pinch of salt until there's a bit more meat on the bones. But its tentacles still appear to be better than ours.
Its latest report suggests that Jj Abrams is in Star Wars mode now, having safely delivered Star Trek Into Darkness into cinemas. And with that in mind, the first piece of new Star Wars: Episode VII casting information has potentially come to light.
It's widely expected that »
Ready to cast a Brother-Sister team? Recently it was confirmed that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver would be part of The Avengers 2 roster. Whedon said that they kind of represent a part of the world that wouldn't necessarily agree with The Avengers. The two definitely won't be making anything easier, and Whedon is not about to put any characters in the second installment that will make anything easier. Every once in awhile there's a role that I can't exactly think of the right person »

20th Century Fox and New Regency Pictures have announced that they will release the feature film adaptation of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed on May 22nd, 2015! Michael Fassbender is set to star in the film which is currently being written by Michael Lesslie.
There's no director attached to the film yet, but Ubisoft will maintain control of key elements of the movie's creative direction. They are guiding the film and story in the direction they want it to go. It's safe to say they will stay close to the story of the video game, which centers on a bartender who is captured by a secret corporation with ties to the Knights Templar, and learns his ancestors were trained assassins. He's sent back in time to retrieve historical artifacts.
This is such a great game, and I really hope they will be able to pull off the epic film adaptation that it deserves. »

Following some rather nice words directed to him from Kevin Feige, The Rock has expressed an interest in playing Luke Cage.
With people being regularly linked to The Avengers 2 and the Marvel cinematic universe in general, there is a near constant stream of speculation as to who would be suitable for what role. That said, it's worth reporting when rumours strongly indicate the involvement of someone. Or, in this case, when the head of Marvel Studios says that they're a fan of an actor and then said actor responds enthusiastically.
Recently then, Collider asked Marvel head Kevin Feige whether they had considered casting Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and here was Feige's response:
“I think yeah, I mean his name has come up in the past. I'm a gigantic fan of his, I think he's incredible – I might have met him once a long time ago, »
As I write this, The Avengers 2 rumour of the week is that Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner in the first movie, is going to be recast – and I couldn’t be happier. Renner was such a flatliner in the Avengers movie that replacing him with someone who has charisma and presence is essential, especially now that Matt Fraction’s reinvention of the character has established Hawkeye as charming, funny and likeable, and brought him to readers’ attentions as a major character in his own right.
Hawkeye, for those who don’t know, is Clint Barton, a member of the Avengers, whose power is that he’s very good with a bow and arrow, and that he uses a range of trick arrows to accomplish various tasks. He’s also skilled at martial arts but, like Black Widow, is essentially an Avengers team member who looks like an ordinary guy »

You can’t say that Marvel doesn’t like to plan. Their mission to dominate our cinema screens and break box office records is showing no signs of stopping. The world which started back in 2008 with Iron Man, has gone on to make billions of dollars and ensure that Robert Downey Jr. has six yachts. With Ant-Man leading the charge for the third stage of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, it turns out there’s more tricks up the studio’s sleeve.
With Iron Man 3 kicking off Phase Two of their cinematic universe with a resounding wallop and ka-ching! – the remaining projects have got some big clanky boots to fill. Next up is Thor: The Dark World, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians Of The Galaxy and closing out the middle chapter is the glue that binds them together: The Avengers 2.
That brings us to Summer 2015. Where next, »

Iron Man 3 now stands in position 16 on the all-time worldwide box office grossers list with $1.0008 billion. Next up to pass for the iron-clad Avenger is Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight which settled into the 15 position previously with $1.004 billion.
Here in North America, Iron Man 3 crossed the $300 million mark with $301.9 million and counting. It is expected to wrap up its North America box office run somewhere in the neighborhood of $350 to $400 million.
Overseas is where Iron Man 3 has really shined with $698.9 million to date. China is the standout country with over $100 million in ticket sales, fitting considering Marvel and Disney shot exclusive scenes for Chinese audiences and marketed heavily to it.

During the world premiere for Iron Man 3, a smiling Joss Whedon confirmed the first draft for The Avengers 2 was completed. Amidst the shrieking fanboy frenzy, he also let slip that a brother-sister act would make their Marvel cinematic debut in the film. Whedon, whose Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. series for Marvel has been picked up by ABC, has since been interviewed by IGN. The interview has confirmed that the rumours are true, and the sibling double act are in his first script.
When asked about their presence in the script, Whedon said:
“You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”

About a year ago, it was reported that Michael Fassbender (Prometheus, X-Men: First Class) signed on to produce and star in "Assassin's Creed," a big screen adaptation of Ubisoft's video game franchise. Ubisoft teamed up with New Regency and 20th Century Fox for the project. The plan was to have a director, cast and script by summer of 2013. English playwright Michael Lesslie was recently hired to write the script and now comes word that the film will be released on May 22nd, 2015 (Memorial Day weekend). That's a tricky release date, since it's only three weeks after "The Avengers 2," and while we have yet to get a release date for "Star Wars: Episode VII," it will likely hit theaters a week before Memorial Day weekend. "Assassin's Creed" revolves around a man (Fassbender) who learns his ancestors were trained assassins after he is kidnapped by a secret organization with ties to the Knights Templar, »
