Now that Disney has struck a deal with IMAX for future releases of their MCU and Star Wars films, we can expect the filmmakers behind these movies to begin utilizing IMAX cameras for a more immersive experience. But while each of these films will be formatted for release in IMAX theaters, it’s been unclear which (if any) of them will actually shoot with those nifty cameras. According to a new report, Captain America: Civil War most definitely will.
Captain America: Civil War
Marvel held a huge press conference in support of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but that wasn’t the only topic on the agenda — Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige debuted a new Ant-Man trailer, which will arrive online tomorrow (don’t worry), and Feige spoke a bit about how their tiny superhero fits into the larger MCU.
Joss Whedon returned to make the sequel to The Avengers, but he’s also said that shooting Age of Ultron was “a nightmare,” and if it hasn’t officially been announced yet, it’s been pretty clear for a while that he would not return to direct the next Avengers saga, the two-part Infinity War in 2018 and 2019. The rumor for months had the Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony, replacing Joss after their very successful stint directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier and next year’s sequel, Captain America: Civil War, which will also feature Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and lead directly into Infinity War. Now Badass Digest says the rumor is basically confirmed. Says site editor Devin Faraci:
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Ant-Man reshoots have resulted in a very interesting change, Harley Quinn details are revealed, and Captain America: Civil War details begin to leak.
Avengers 2 doesn't open for another few weeks, but deep inside Marvel headquarters they've already begun turning their attention to the next big movie: Captain America: Civil War. Frequently referred to as Avengers 2.5 because of the sheer amount of superheroes packed into this one film — Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon, Black Panther, Spider-Man and Hawkeye are all confirmed to star — the third Captain America movie might be the biggest superhero film yet. As Marvel gets ready to begin filming, a casting call has given us our first look at the film's plot.
Captain America: Civil War is gearing up to head into production, and going off of what we know about the upcoming sequel, as well as a few casting announcements, this is going to be a pretty different Cap movie. Not only will it include Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, but it’s also the MCU debut of the new Spider-Man. And now we can add another superhero to that list: Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye has been confirmed to join in on the action.
In news that will surely ignite all kinds of controversy, a new Spider-Man rumor has arrived on the internet suggesting that the new Peter Parker will not be played by a white guy. In fact, he could be played by (gasp!) a black or Latino actor! And, he might not even be Peter Parker!
Ever since the announcement of Captain America: Civil War, we’ve been curious about how the Russo brothers will begin to adapt Marvel’s Civil War comic book story line for the big screen, kicking off a major new arc in the MCU (and one that sees Spider-Man swinging in with a crossover). According to Robert Downey Jr., the seeds for Civil War have already been planted in Avengers: Age of Ultron, once again proving just how much planning and foresight goes into the creation of the MCU.
Everybody knows by know of the Stan Lee cameos in the Marvel movies, and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is no exception. You probably also recognized the voice of Gary Sinise as the narrator of the Captain America exhibit at the Smithsonian in the movie. But, did you catch the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo by ‘Avengers 2’ director Joss Whedon? Don't worry, we've got that, and a lot more for you, in the latest patriotic installment of You Think You Know Movies!
For a while, the party line on the possibility of an ‘Iron Man 4’ was that it was not going to happen. And, at least technically, that’s still true—because instead Robert Downey Jr. is co-starring ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ where his Tony Stark and Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers will get into an epic superhero tussle.
