Brie Larson Shuts Down The Captain Marvel Haters

Of all the major talking points to emerge from Captain Marvel‘s wondrous first teaser trailer (a two-eyed Nick Fury! Skrulls! Blockbuster Video!), a vocal minority twigged on to the fact that Brie Larson’s costumed crusader doesn’t smile all the much during the two-minute sizzle reel. Really.

This ridiculous observation has led to a series of Photoshopped images that take important screenshots from the Captain Marvel teaser – like, say, Carol Danvers sitting in a cockpit – and forcibly curl her lips into a smile. Welcome to the Internet of 2018, ladies and gentlemen.

It’s a ‘backlash’ that has since been labelled misogynistic, as no one – and we really do mean no one – is running around telling Tony Stark or Steve Rogers to lighten up when they’re facing off against extraterrestrial threats. And that’s exactly how Brie Larson responded to the haters; with a series of Photoshopped movie

Will Scarlet Witch Be Retconned As A Mutant In The McU?

Scarlet Witch is one of those rare properties whose rights are shared between Marvel Studios and Fox, due to her long history in the comics with both the X-Men and the Avengers. While the latter studio decided not to use her, Wanda Maximoff was introduced into the McU in Avengers: Age of Ultron, as played by Elizabeth Olsen. However, the character’s origins had to undergo some significant changes so as not to cause any contractual headaches.

As established in a post-credits teaser for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Wanda and her brother Pietro (Quicksilver) were experimented on by Hydra’s Baron Von Strucker, who used the Mind Stone to give them their abilities. We assumed that was the end of it, but an interesting description in the official Visual Dictionary for the Marvel Cinematic Universe has us thinking otherwise.

Chris Hemsworth set to become a hero again in kidnap drama Dhaka

  • HeyUGuys
Chris Hemsworth has signed up to take the lead in the action film Dhaka from first time director and Avengers stuntman, Sam Hargrave.

The action flick will see Hemsworth play a physically brave but an emotionally insecure man who has to liberate a kidnapped boy, along the way coming to terms with his identity and sense of self.

The project also comes from production company Agbo – a production company set-up by Avengers: Infinity War filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo. Joe Russo also penned the script.

Busy Agbo Sets India Kidnap Drama ‘Dhaka’ At Netflix: Chris Hemsworth Stars & Sam Hargrave Helms Joe Russo Script
Exclusive: For a couple of guys whose summer entry Avengers: Infinity War became only the fourth ever to top $2 billion in worldwide ticket sales, and — at least until their sequel next summer — wiped out a good portion of the signature characters of the Marvel universe, Joe and Anthony Russo have been extreme multi-taskers, moving in overdrive to get their Agbo studio up and running.

‘MacGyver’ Stunt Coordinator Justin Sundquist Out Of Coma But “Not Out Of The Woods Yet”

Exclusive: Injured MacGyver stunt coordinator Justin Sundquist has come out of a medically induced coma and was removed today from intensive care. The news comes a week after he suffered a serious head injury in Atlanta in a stunt fall from the back of a tractor trailer on the set of the CBS drama series.

“He’s not out of the woods yet,” said veteran stuntman Spiro Razatos, a longtime friend of the family, “but he’s out of ICU and knows what’s going on. He’s responding and communicating with his friends and family. He has a long road ahead of him, but he’s on a better road now. We’re all praying for the positivity to continue.”

The accident is being investigated by Osha. CBS TV Studios told Deadline last week that “The production team is cooperating with the authorities investigating the accident, and our primary

New Theory Offers Darker Explanation For Why Captain America Can’t Lift Mjolnir

Steve Rogers has developed a reputation as the boy scout of the McU, who sticks to his principles in the face of all opposition and hates injustice almost as much as he hates bad language. But if Captain America truly is such a virtuous soul, then why is he unable to lift Thor’s trusty hammer Mjolnir in Avengers: Age of Ultron? Could it be that the first Avenger somehow flunks in this mythical weapon’s test of worthiness?

Well, if you go by one recent and presumably tongue-in-cheek theory, Cap’s problem is his failure to wear a bike helmet, with his callous disregard for road safety laws making him unfit to wield Thor’s trademark accessory. But if you’re looking for something a little more credible, YouTube channel That Film Theory has some ideas.

In building their case, Tft’s recent video takes us back to Asgard,

Russo Brothers Near Deal to Direct PTSD Drama ‘Cherry’
Joe and Anthony Russo are in exclusive negotiations for movie rights to Nico Walker’s novel “Cherry,” the story of an Army medic turned bank robber and addict with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Walker was arrested in 2011 and wrote “Cherry” while incarcerated. The book was acquired by Knopf and has debuted at No. 14 on The New York Times bestseller list.

The Russo brothers directed Disney-Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” and are in post-production on the untitled sequel, due out next May. They also directed “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014) and “Captain America: Civil War” (2016). If the deal closes, the Russos would produce through their Agbo production company.

“Cherry” tells the story of a young man from an affluent family who marries his hometown girlfriend before joining the Army and shipping out to Iraq as an Army medic. When he returns home, he becomes a drug addict and gets into debt,

After ‘Avengers 4’, the Russo Brothers May Next Direct True Story ‘Cherry’

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo are currently in the middle of one of the most herculean filmmaking attempts of all time, but they’re already setting their sights on life after Marvel. The duo, whose credits range from Arrested Development to Community, made their Marvel debut directing the well-received Captain America: The Winter Soldier. After the success of that film, they came back to direct the next Captain America movie, which turned out to be something of a mini-Avengers film: Captain America: Civil War.

Injured ‘MacGyver’ Stunt Coordinator Was Hired As Part Of ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Accident Settlement

  • Deadline
Exclusive: CBS TV Studios acknowledged to Deadline today that the hiring of Justin Sundquist as stunt coordinator of MacGyver was part of a deal settling his lawsuit over a 2016 injury he sustained on Hawaii Five-0.

On Monday, he was hurt again, this time on a stunt that went wrong on the MacGyver set that left him in a medically induced coma with a traumatic head injury.

Jeff Wolfe, who was replaced by Sundquist on MacGyver, warned his stunt crew in July that Sundquist might not be up to the job and might have gotten the gig “not for the right reason,” while accusing “the powers that be” of not making safety “a priority.”

That’s strongly disputed by CBS TV Studios.

“Justin Sundquist is a long-time stunt performer with previous stunt coordinator experience who has been working in this field for almost 2 decades,” the studio said in a statement to Deadline.

Infinity War Directors Say They Didn’t Want To Make Cap Patriotic

As the brains behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier (and Civil War!), Joe and Anthony Russo know a thing or two about Steve Rogers’ star-spangled patriot. Which is why everyone was so intrigued by Cap’s truncated arc in Avengers: Infinity War, in which he adopted the roguish, lone wolf mantle of Nomad.

Like so many other McU characters – namely Black Widow and Hawkeye – Steve Rogers is expected to enjoy a much more prominent role in Avengers 4, as the remnants of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes confront Thanos for the final (?) time.

But when it comes to their own handling of Captain America, otherwise known as the moral compass of the Avengers, Anthony Russo spoke to Wired about how he and his brother always looked to Steve Rogers as much more than just a cliched symbol of patriotism.

Sebastian Stan Reveals What He Did When He First Wore Bucky’s Arm

Steve Rogers’ friend Bucky Barnes isn’t exactly known for his moments of comic relief. In a pretty tragic saga that’s seen him transition from World War II sergeant in Captain America: The First Avenger to brainwashed Hydra assassin in Captain America: The Winter Soldier to wandering man out of his time in Captain America: Civil War, the hundred-year-old Avengers ally has developed an understated persona as one of the broodier, more serious-minded characters in the Marvel universe.

Of course, that doesn’t stop actor Sebastian Stan from goofing around behind the scenes. Speaking on Earth’s Mightiest Show, the McU regular looked back on the time he was given a brand new metal arm for Winter Solider, and how he used this replacement limb as an excuse to act a little silly.

“I did not do the robot,” Stan said. “I was just more like going around like grabbing things left and right,

Sebastian Stan Reveals How Gets Back Into The Mindset Of Bucky Barnes

In Captain America: Civil War, we see how the brainwashed assassin known as the Winter Soldier is put into the appropriate state of mind with a series of carefully chosen trigger words. But for actor Sebastian Stan, who’s been living in this character’s skin from the first Captain America through to Avengers: Infinity War, immersing himself back into the role of Bucky Barnes might be an even simpler process.

Cap’s longtime friend has had a rocky, decades-spanning journey which has seen him transition from World War II sergeant to Hydra puppet to Avengers ally. But going by recent statements from Stan, returning to the character is something that comes naturally to him.

“It’s really weird, because it just sort of, it’s like riding a bicycle, you never really forget in a way. That’s how I feel,” Stan told Marvel’s Earth’s Mightiest Show.

Sebastian Stan Explains How The Winter Soldier’s Arm Has Changed With The Character

Like his friend Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes is a man out of his time, having spent decades as the brainwashed puppet of Hydra before eventually returning a world he no longer recognized. But as the character’s arc has seen him progress from unwilling villain in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, to ally to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War, his prosthetic arm has done a little adjusting, too.

On a visual level, you may have noticed that the Winter Soldier’s black, vibranium-enhanced arm sported in Wakanda is a little different from the shiny metal design we’ve seen him utilize in previous films. Speaking on Earth’s Mightiest Show, Sebastian Stan observed how the changes undergone by his replacement limb in some ways mirror the development of Bucky himself.

“The funny thing is the arms have changed throughout the movies. It’s just very interesting because

Sebastian Stan’s Favorite Bucky Line Will Bring A Tear To Your Eye

“Who the hell is Bucky?”

The once-ironclad friendship between Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes is the very definition of an McU bromance – hell, it’s partially responsible for the wedge driven between Cap and Iron Man during Marvel’s Civil War.

But there’s a moment in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, not long after the Bucky’s brainwashed super-soldier has escaped into the wild, when Sebastian Stan’s anti-hero turns to his childhood friend and utters the heartbreaking line, “who the hell is Bucky.” Oh, right in the feels.

Turns out it’s actually Stan’s favorite ever line from the McU, as he revealed on the latest episode of Earth’s Mightiest Show while promoting the home video release of Avengers: Infinity War. The reveal came as part of a rapid-fire section in which the actor answered a series of McU-related questions about Bucky, Steve Rogers and everything in between.
