Captain America: Civil War Trailer 1 (2016)

25 Nov 2015


There is not much I can say except I can not wait till this comes out.

Plot and character profile from Wikipedia

After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, another international incident involving Captain America and the Avengers results in collateral damage, prompting politicians to form a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to call in the Avengers, which results in the fracturing of the team into two opposing factions–one led by Captain America who wishes to operate without regulation, and one led by Iron Man who supports government oversight–while they attempt to protect the world from a new enemy.


Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America:
The leader of a faction of Avengers, and a World War II veteran who was enhanced to the peak of human physicality by an experimental serum and frozen in suspended animation before waking up in the modern world. According to Joe Russo, Captain America does not become a disillusioned antihero stating, "his morality is part of his superpower,"[6] and adding, "...there’s an inspirational quality to his character. So it’s nice to have characters around him that he can inspire. Leadership is also a key component of his, and you can’t lead unless you have other characters around. But he's also got an expanding universe—Winter Soldier, Agent 13, the Falcon—so there’s already a universe that’s expanding around him." Describing his role in the plot, Evans said, "Tony [Stark] actually thinks we should be signing these accords and reporting to somebody and Cap, who's always been a company man and has always been a soldier, actually doesn't trust anymore. Given what happened in Cap 2, I think he kind of feels the safest hands are his own." On Captain America's character arc, Anthony Russo said. "The arc we’re tracking for Captain America, the thing we thought would be most interesting with this character when we came on board to direct Winter Soldier was to take him from the most ra-ra company man that you could get, this character who was a somewhat willing propagandist, and by the end of the third film he’s an insurgent."
Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man:
The leader of a faction of Avengers, and self-described genius, billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist with electromechanical suits of armor of his own invention. On how the character evolves in the film over previous portrayals of the character, Downey said, "It’s natural to change your views. The main thing to me is... what sort of incident could occur and what sort of framework could we find Tony in? The clues are in [Avengers: Age of Ultron] about where we might find him next." Anthony Russo added, "Tony’s defining characteristic is his egomania, in a lot of ways, and we thought it would be interesting to bring him to a point in his life where he was willing to submit to an authority, where he felt it was the right thing to do." Marvel initially wanted Downey's part to be smaller, however "Downey wanted Stark to have a more substantial role in the film’s plot." Variety noted that Downey would receive $40 million plus backend for his participation, as well as an additional payout if the film outperforms The Winter Soldier, as Marvel would feel the success of this film would be attributed to Downey. Downey's personal trainer Eric Oram stated that the trick to pitting Captain America against Iron Man, "is to show Iron Man using the 'minimum force' necessary to win the fight, and not to look like he's trying to go wild and kill somebody."
Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow:
An Avenger allied with Iron Man, who formerly worked for S.H.I.E.L.D. as a highly trained spy. Describing her character's situation after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Johansson said, "I think that the Widow's past will always haunt her. She's trying to move forward, she's trying to pick up the pieces of her life. I think we'll see parts of that in Cap 3 when we find her. And certainly she has a greater purpose, and I think that greater purpose is charged by this need to escape her past. So, it's always kind of right there, kind of looming over her shoulders."[16] On the continuation of the relationship between Romanoff and Rogers from The Winter Solider, Joe Russo said, "We thought it would be interesting to take that relationship that was so strong in Winter Soldier, and test it. She sees that they have made mistakes, very public mistakes and she’s trying to convince Steve that it might not be as black and white as he sees it and maybe they have some culpability, and maybe they have to accept that culpability, and then find a way to work within the system so that the Avengers aren’t disbanded."
Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier:
An enhanced brainwashed assassin allied with Captain America, and childhood friend of Steve Rogers who reemerged after being thought killed in action during World War II. On how the character continues from Winter Soldier, Joe Russo said the character in Winter Soldier "had the really specific job of basically, you know, being a killing machine and could Cap crack the veneer of that well formed Hydra killing machine? So what’s left to explore obviously is the personality of the character, much the way that [Ed] Brubaker’s run did after Winter Soldier regained a semblance of his past. Philosophical questions that we would want to deal with in Cap 3 would be, you know, is he redeemable? Is he the worst assassin we’ve ever seen or is he the longest suffering P.O.W.? Where does he live now? Does he ever regain his memories? If he doesn’t regain his memories, can you call him Bucky Barnes or is he somebody new? So it’s a really fascinating character to play with. Very rich." Stan stated he had more lines in the film over his appearance in Winter Soldier, and how that applied to the development of the character, he said, "The look of the Winter Soldier is a very specific look. There was something very specific in how the guy looked and behaved and I felt like the more I stepped back and I just kind of let that do the work, the better it was gonna be. In a situation like that, you’re trying to guess where the guy’s at in his mind, and that certainly continues in the Civil War movie. You’re always trying to guess what side is he on or … because he can go both ways."
Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon:
An Avenger allied with Captain America, and a former pararescueman trained by the military in aerial combat using a specially designed wing pack. Discussing the relationship between Wilson and Rogers, Mackie said, "With Falcon and Cap, what's so great is there's a mutual respect. There's a soldier respect. What's great about... [Captain America: Civil War] is you get to see their relationship grow." "He’s deepening his relationship with Cap," says Joe Russo. "It’s Falcon, Cap and Bucky – how is that dynamic going to work going forward? How does he feel about Bucky? How does it alter his relationship with Cap if Winter Soldier comes back into the picture?"
Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter / Agent 13: A former agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. allied with Captain America.
Don Cheadle as James "Rhodey" Rhodes / War Machine: An Avenger allied with Iron Man, and an officer in the U.S. Air Force who operates the War Machine armor.
Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton / Hawkeye:
A master archer allied with Captain America, who previously worked for S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers. On how he and Hawkeye fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Renner said, "I’m happy to be the ensemble. I’m not scratching or clawing to do a solo movie by any means...I think [Hawkeye's] a utility guy that can bounce around into other people’s universes a little bit, especially like Cap 3."
Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa / Black Panther:
The ruler of the African nation of Wakanda who allies with Iron Man. On including the character in the film, Feige said, "The reason we introduced him in Civil War is because we needed a third party. We needed fresh eyes who wasn’t embedded with the Avengers and who has a very different point of view than either Tony or Steve. We said, ‘We need somebody like Black Panther… why don’t we just use Black Panther?’" Feige also said that T'Challa would be in the "beginning phases of taking on" the Black Panther mantle. On landing the role, Boseman said, "It wasn’t really an audition process. It was more of a discussion about what they wanted to do and how I saw it and what I wanted to do. It was more of a feeling out process". Boseman has a five picture deal with Marvel.
Paul Bettany as Vision:
An android and Avenger allied with Iron Man, that was created using the artificial intelligence J.A.R.V.I.S. and the Mind Stone. Describing his preparation for the role, Bettany said, "I was given comics. I also was looking to think about what could be edifying for me to learn. I took the opportunity - you see my character get born... He must be both omnipotent and yet totally naive at the same time. And experiencing the world in real time and his place in it. Is he going to be a force of good or a force of evil? It was really interesting, fun to play with, because he’s dangerous, you don’t know if he’s going to go one way or another. I’m continuing that theme in Captain America 3." Bettany also said he was interested in exploring "what it means to be human and what love is" with the character, as "The only way one can guarantee one's loyalty is love."
Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch:
An Avenger from the Eastern European nation of Sokovia, who can harness magic and engage in hypnosis and telekinesis. Describing Scarlet Witch's role in the film, Olsen said, "She’s doing alright. She’s confused, she’s conflicted. She’s found some people she thinks she connects with, but she’s doing alright. They released images of Team Cap and Team Iron Man. She wasn’t there. She’s always the wild card. I like being the wild card." According to Olsen, the character is "coming into her own and starting to understand and have conflict with how she wants to use her abilities. It’s a dramatic conflict within her and obviously there’s conflict within the [Avengers] as well."
Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man:
A former petty criminal allied with Captain America, who acquired a suit that allows him to shrink in scale but increase in strength.[1][37] Ant-Man director Peyton Reed revealed that he had discussed the character and the way that the Ant-Man production had shot certain sequences with the Russo brothers, saying, "As we were doing the movie and we were in post and they were getting ready to head out to Atlanta to do Civil War, we had a lot of conversations. And I actually wanted those guys to come in and look at our stuff, because there’s gotta be a lot of sort of crossover. I found myself getting extremely protective over the character of Scott Lang and talking to the guys, the writers, the Russo’s [sic] about, 'He wouldn't do that.' It’s important because there’s this continuity that has to happen in this universe."
Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow / Crossbones:
Former commander of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s counter-terrorism S.T.R.I.K.E. team, who was revealed to be an agent of Hydra. On returning to the character, Grillo said "He’s a badass. He is just vicious. I like the idea that it’s no holds barred. I was 15 pounds bigger when I did Cap 2, and I'll put another 15 pounds on to do Cap 3. I love the physicality. It changes the way you look; it changes the way you feel." However, he cautioned that "This movie is such a big movie with a lot of people in it, so you don't get as much of the time that you'd like to have. But, it's all good. We'll see what happens."
Daniel Brühl as Helmut Zemo:
A brilliant and sadistic scientific genius working for Hydra. Zemo does not wear his signature mask from the comics, with Brühl stating the version appearing in the film is "loosely connected" to the character from the comics. He went on to say that was a reason he liked Marvel, as "some of the characters and things they're dealing with always reference to current events so my character is from a different area than you would think." Brühl also said that Zemo may also appear in future MCU films.
William Hurt as Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross:
The United States Secretary of State and former U.S. Army general dedicated to capturing the Hulk. Hurt, on returning to the MCU said, "...what [the writers have] done is they've taken a character who was the Ross from [the Hulk movie] and made... a more modernized style." Director Joe Russo says of Ross, "The job is to tie all these films together. To be able to pull from [The Incredible Hulk], which may have been forgotten about a little bit, and make it relevant again within the cinematic universe, is important to us. We thought it would be interesting to take a character who had a fanatical anti-superhero point of view. Now he’s become much savvier and more political and has put himself in a position of power, not unlike a Colin Powell. He’s cornering the Avengers politically now, he’s out-maneuvering them."
Additionally, Tom Holland has been cast as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, a teenager who received spider-like abilities after being bitten by a genetically altered spider. Feige said that Spider-Man would be torn between superhero ideologies, saying, "Does he want to be like these other characters? Does he want nothing to do with these other characters? How does that impact his experience, being this grounded but super powerful hero? Those are all the things that Stan Lee and Steve Ditko played with in the first 10 years of his comics, and that now we can play with for the first time in a movie." Holland is signed on for at least three films, not including his Civil War appearance. Martin Freeman has been cast in an unspecified role, which he described as someone who "works for the American government...[and] works in conjunction with the superheroes, and certain agencies that help to tame the superheroes' power". Stan Lee makes a cameo in the film.


Marvel’s Ant-Man Teaser

07 Jan 2015


Release dates
July 17, 2015
Country United States

The first look at the Marvels Ant Man. First impressions. Cooooooooollll. But then again I am in with everything Marvel.

Thief Scott Lang must aid his mentor Dr. Hank Pym in safeguarding the mystery of the Ant-Man technology – which allows its user to decrease in size but increase in strength – from various new threats, and plot a heist that will save the Earth.

Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man:
A petty criminal, who acquires an invented substance that allows him to shrink in scale but increase in strength. Regarding Rudd's casting, producer Kevin Feige said, "Look at that origin of the petty crook who comes into contact with a suit and does his best to make good, and then look at someone like Paul Rudd, who can do slightly unsavory things like break into people’s houses and still be charming and who you root for and whose redemption you will find satisfaction in."
Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne:
The daughter of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne. Describing her character, Lilly said, "I was raised by two superheroes. So, I'm a pretty screwed up human being. I am also fairly capable, strong, and kick-ass, which is wonderful to play, but the most fun to play was just how messed up she was from being raised by two superheroes. And the clear message sent by my name is that I'm not a big fan of my father and so I took my mother's name."[10] Originally cast by Wright, Lilly was reluctant to take the role after he left the project until she read the revised script and got a chance to meet with Reed.
Corey Stoll as Darren Cross / Yellowjacket:
A former protégé of Pym, who takes over Pym's company and acquires the Ant-Man technology to create the Yellowjacket suit. Describing the suit, Stoll said, "Darren Cross... has a suit that is sort of the next generation of Ant-Man’s suit. It can do everything that Ant-Man can do, but more. It’s more badass, more militaristic, sleeker… sort of like if Apple had designed a battle suit." As for his character, Stoll said, "He is not a villain in the vein of Thanos or Loki, who are villains that know it. [Cross] is a guy who is not that dissimilar from Michael Douglas' character, Hank Pym. A brilliant scientist, who is not ethically pure. I think a great thing about the whole movie is that everybody in this movie is in those shades of gray a little bit."
Bobby Cannavale as Paxton: A friend of Lang.
Michael Peña as Luis.
Judy Greer as Maggie: Lang's estranged ex-wife.
Tip "T.I." Harris as Dave.
David Dastmalchian as Kurt.
Wood Harris as Gale.
Jordi Mollà as Castillo.
Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym / Ant-Man:
An entomologist and physicist who invents the Ant-Man technology in 1963 and mentors Lang to take over as Ant-Man. Douglas compared his decision to join a superhero film to his role in Behind the Candelabra saying, "Sometimes—like [when] they didn't see you for Liberace—you've got to shake them up a little bit and have some fun." Douglas indicated that he will not be wearing the Ant-Man suit, saying, "My costume will be hung up and Paul will be wearing it in good form."
Additionally, John Slattery reprises his role as Howard Stark from Iron Man 2. Abby Ryder Fortson, Gregg Turkington, and Martin Donovan have been cast in undisclosed roles.

Thor 2 and other Marvel Movie News

17 Oct 2012


Here is some news from Marvel that came out of SDCC 2012 (Comic Con) about Thor 2 , Iron Man, Captain America , Ant Man with a little digging from other places like Wikipedidia on extra tid bits.

So lets get to it . Marvel has announced in a press release the plot of Thor: The Dark World which is to be released on November 8, 2013 in both 3D and 2D formats. The official plot is as thus.
Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World" continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Iron Man 3 also going to be released in 3D and 2D and I will go out on a sarcastic limb by saying every one of these films on this list will be also released in both formats so wi will not mention it again. Is set to be released on May 3, 2013. Which will be the first in the film franchise to introduce The Mandarin played by Ben Kingsley. Other cast members and their parts are as follows
Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man:
A billionaire who escaped captivity with a suit of armor he created, who now struggles to keep his technology in the right hands. On making a third Iron Man film, Downey replied "My sense of it is that we need to leave it all on the field — whatever that means in the end. You can pick several different points of departure for that."Downey, who had previously starred in Black's film Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, said "Bringing in Shane Black to write and direct Iron Man 3 to me is basically the only transition from Favreau to a 'next thing' that Favreau and the audience and Marvel and I could ever actually sign off on." On following up The Avengers, Downey said that they "tried to be practical, in a post-Avengers world. What are his challenges now? What are some limitations that might be placed on him? And what sort of threat would have him, as usual, ignore those limitations?"
Gwyneth Paltrow as Virginia "Pepper" Potts: Stark's girlfriend, longtime associate and personal assistant.
Don Cheadle as USAF Lt. Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes / War Machine:
Stark's best friend, the liaison between Stark Industries and the U.S. Air Force in the department of acquisitions and the operator of the War Machine armor.Asked whether his character would wear armor in the film, Cheadle stated "I do suit up. There are some different iterations that War Machine goes through, in this film. I don’t want to give them away, but it’s fun to see those things morph and shift." Rhodes' armor will take on an American flag-inspired color scheme in the film, similar to the Iron Patriot armor from the comics.
Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin:
The leader of a terrorist organization, and Iron Man's archenemy. Kingsley was filming Ender's Game when he was cast, and said that "Quite soon I'll be with everybody and we'll be discussing the look and the feel and the direction of the character. It's very early days yet, but I'm so thrilled to be on board."
Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian:
The creator of the Extremis virus. On why he took the role, Pearce said "I feel a little more experimental in what I'll take on these days, but I still don't know that I would want to play the superhero myself, since I'm playing a different kind of character in this film... The main difference was that, when I did The Time Machine, I was pretty much in all of it, so it was a really grueling experience. Prometheus and Iron Man are really kind of cameo stuff, so the experience of shooting them... I mean, on some level, it's tricky because you feel like a bit of an outsider. You don’t really live the experience that you do when you're there all day every day with everybody. But at the same time, it can be more fun sometimes because you're just working in concentrated spurts."
Rebecca Hall as Dr. Maya Hansen:
One of the Extremis creators. Hall confirmed that Hansen would be a "strong female character" in the film, and described her decision to take the role, saying "I decided to do Iron Man 3 because I've never done the 'hurry up and wait' movie before. Even the studio movies I've done have been small studio movies, or indie films that we made on a wing and a prayer. I love those, but Iron Man is refreshing in a way because it's something out of my realm of experiences."
James Badge Dale as Eric Savin / Coldblood
Ashley Hamilton as Jack Taggert / Firepower
Wang Xueqi as Chen Lu
Jon Favreau and Paul Bettany will reprise their roles from previous films as Happy Hogan and JARVIS, respectively, and Stan Lee will have a cameo. William Sadler and Stephanie Szostak were also cast in unspecified roles.
More on this at Wikipedia Iron Man 3
The Iron Man Facebook page has a link to an Arc Reactor that when its filled will let you watch the movie trailer. My guess there is a trailer release in the next month or so since as of the last time I hopped on it the Arc is at 10 %.

Guardians of the Galaxy
August 1, 2014

This is one of those rare times that I really do not know much of a Marvel Universe comic team. I have heard of them before but never really bothered to pick up a comic that had them. So bare with me on this . The film is based on Marvel and Disney's attempt to develop lesser known comic books into movies. The short plot summery which I got from Marvel Wiki page is as follows.
The plot of will be about “A U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants.” The U.S. pilot in question will most likely be Peter Quill aka Star-Lord.
It will be an adaptation of The Thanos Imperative.
The film will focus on Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax The Destroyer.
Gamora ties to both Adam Warlock and Nova.
