Even though the upcoming third ‘Captain America’ movie is based on Marvel’s ‘Civil War’ mini-series, where the heroes of the Marvel Universe faced off with one another in a battle over their right to privacy, the ‘Civil War’ film still needs a villain for Chris Evans’ Cap and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man (and new addition Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman) to face off with as well. Although they didn’t reveal the identity of his character, Deadline reports that Daniel Bruhl will play the guy to pester the feuding Avengers.

At last week's big Marvel event, there were lots of things to be excited about, but the two biggest revelations were undoubtedly 'Captain Marvel' and 'Black Panther,' with the studio giving us a solo female superhero film and a film featuring a black superhero -- the latter to be played by Chadwick Boseman, who will hit the screen in 'Captain America: Civil War.' Boseman has been laying low since, but now he's making the rounds and speaking out about his recent casting. And although it's still years away, he promises that we haven't seen anything like what Marvel has in store with 'Black Panther.'

In the second trailer for Tate Taylor's James Brown biopic 'Get on Up,' we're informed that James Brown (Chadwick Boseman) made it to soul superstardom without -- and perhaps in spite of -- his mother (Viola Davis), who only came into his life once he achieved success.

Chadwick Boseman stars in the James Brown biopic 'Get on Up,' and now there's a trailer for the movie about the Godfather of Soul's rise to fame and fortune. Will this follow director Tate Taylor's 'The Help' in being both a late summer hit and an Oscar favorite? It's possible.

'42' Review

My grandmother, Rhoda Singer, died earlier this year. She lived much of her life in Brooklyn and was a Brooklyn Dodgers fan. Her favorite player was Pee Wee Reese, the Dodgers' scrappy white shortstop who famously silenced a racist Cincinnati crowd by putting his arm around his black teammate Jackie Robinson during pre-game warmups.
I thought about my grandmother a lot while watching '42,' the new biopic of Jackie Robinson and his quest to break the color barrier in baseball. On an intellectual level, I can tell you a dozen things wrong with the movie, from its excessively preachy dialogue to its bloated length. But on an emotional level, I have to admit that this movie bypassed my brain and grabbed my heart, pulling each and every string contained therein firmly and repeatedly. It's a pretty good tribute to a great man. And when Pee-Wee and Jackie embraced on that field in Cincinnati I cried.

'42' looks fascinating, and not just for Harrison Ford's weird make-up. Relaying the biography of Jackie Robinson, it shows how the star baseball player (played by Chadwick Boseman) had to struggle against the prejudices that didn't want to see professional baseball become integrated. Now there's a featurette that plays up Robinson's historical significance.
