A few months ago, we learned that the terrific Thomas Kretschmann was joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as supervillain Baron von Strucker (though Marvel refrained from acknowledging it) and we immediately assumed his appearance in 'The Avengers 2' would be a one-and-done performance. Now, a new interview with the actor reveals that, in true Marvel fashion, Kretschmann actually signed on for multiple films and his monocled baddie will continue to threaten the Avengers and their allies in the years to come.

Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' steadily built up the latter half of its first season with the 2014 arrival of Deathlok, Lady Sif and more, but it seams the March 4 premiere, "T.A.H.I.T.I.," may bring more marvels than we bargained for. Not only does the latest trailer's "Uprising" bring Bill Paxton in as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent John Garrett and our first footage of Lady Sif, but a subtle clue may bring a Captain America cameo, as well!
Exciting news, Marvel fans! Following posters of Black Widow and Falcon, the studio has unveiled a new poster of your favorite all-American hero, and he's looking quite ... heroic. The stars and stripes have returned, and Cap is looking rather determined to defeat whatever dangers he might face in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' and we've got a high-res version of the new poster for your viewing pleasure.
'Avengers 2' has only just begun filming, but if you already can't wait for next summer, you can get your first look at the superhero sequel next month as ABC premieres the special, 'Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe,' which will include a "sneak peek" at 'Avengers 2' and other upcoming Marvel properties.
Like any Marvel Studios sequel, 'Captain America 2' looks to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe in many exciting ways and introduce new characters straight from the pages of the comics. The biggest addition to Steve Rogers' world this time around is Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, and now the winged warrior, played by the wonderful Anthony Mackie, has his own 'Captain America 2' poster.
As Marvel ramps up its marketing for 'Captain America 2,' a new TV spot has hit the airwaves. While it does do well in teasing fans with never-before-seen footage of Chris Evans' upcoming turn as the Cap, it seemingly spoils a major moment from the movie. (Continue reading at your own risk.)
The rumor goes that over the weekend, Amazon UK accidentally printed the tracklisting for the 'Captain America 2' soundtrack, which revealed some major, major spoilers. Realizing their error, the listing was quickly removed from their site, but not before some enterprising fanboys were able to copy and paste the information on to various message boards. But, is any of it true? Did the 'Captain America 2' soundtrack reveal a massive 'Captain America 2'?
Hasbro invited press to its 2014 Entertainment Brand Preview for the American International Toy Fair in New York City this weekend, during which time the brand debuted all its toy lines hitting shelves this coming year.
Among the offerings were 'Transformers 4,' 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' 'Captain America 2' and the animated 'Star Wars Rebels' TV series. We were on hand to snap a ton of pics, and while we already detailed the coming merchandise and promo art for Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' here are some of the other toys we're excited about.
Marvel recently put 'Captain America 3' into development with 'Captain America 2' directors Joe and Anthony Russo back for more. While, naturally, details on what this next outing might look like are still too early to make out, we can safely assume that Anthony Mackie's Falcon will be a part of it.
When previously asked about the lack of female superhero movies, Marvel chief Kevin Feige has remained diplomatic, yet non-committal. During the press tour for 'Thor 2,' Feige's comments were "I'm not sure when that will be" and "we'll see what happens." Not exactly a ringing endorsement for a female-led Marvel movie. Apparently, things have changed over the past few months and now Feige, when asked specifically about Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, said that they are actively developing her own solo movie.
