There was a lot to take in with the first Captain America: Civil War trailer, from the return of Bucky / Winter Soldier to the "accords" and the debut of Black Panther. Marvel introduced the first Phase Three film with a pretty detailed trailer, forgoing the usual vague teaser in favor of something far more meaty, and while you've probably watched the trailer a few times by now, there's still some stuff you probably missed — and that's where directors Joe and Anthony Russo come in, delivering lots and lots of interesting details.
With Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans promising a big surprise on Jimmy Kimmel Live, we knew it had to be something special — that something is the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Not a teaser, but an actual, full trailer, dramatically highlighting the growing divide between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, which will divide the Avengers and pit them against one another in what could be Marvel's most epic film yet.
Are you guys starting to get a little sick of all the Star Wars ads, commercials, clips and appearances? Well, we’ve got some good news for you: it’s time to start getting excited about the next Marvel movie. Captain America: Civil War may be seven months away, but the trailer is set to debut with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Who can wait until December 18 though? Stars Robert Downey, Jr. and Chris Evans will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight to maybe, possibly debut the Captain America: Civil War trailer.
The adaptation of the best-selling mystery novel The Girl on the Train already boasts the incredible duo of Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson, and while it may have just lost Chris Evans, it did gain Justin Theroux, who — along with his eyebrows — has been captivating us weekly in the increasingly great second season of The Leftovers. Oh, and this very well-cast new movie also has an official release date.
The Girl on the Train’s casting is chugging along (sorry) quite nicely. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation breakout Rebecca Ferguson recently joined Emily Blunt and Haley Bennett in the adaptation of the thriller novel from director Tate Taylor (The Help), rounding out the awesome cast of women. And now the DreamWorks production has its eye on a couple of men, with Jared Leto and Chris Evans circling leading roles in the upcoming film.
It’s been kind of a big week for Marvel — we haven’t really covered it here, but the company had a bit of a shakeup, as Marvel Studios disengaged from Marvel Entertainment, with Kevin Feige taking the movie end of things over to Disney and gaining more control over the MCU. On the heels of that major news, Chris Evans has revealed that he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Clearly things are pretty good over at Marvel right now.
It’s been a few months since the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel isn’t done providing us with new materials from the film. The blockbuster sequel is hitting DVD and Blu-ray in a little over a month, but you can check out a clips from one of the bonus features right now — as well as a little Black Panther easter egg you might have missed the first time around.
And that’s a wrap…for now. Captain America: Civil War has completed principal filming, and now the post-production process (and our long march to next May) begins. The film shot primarily at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, with additional filming taking place in Berlin (hello, Baron Zemo) and Puerto Rico. The news was delivered by Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, while additional, supplementary filming will likely occur sometime over the next few months or so.
