If hours and hours of Twin Peaks or The Affair weren’t enough for you, Showtime has some major additional treats coming up. Not only do we have premiere dates for the Jim Carrey-produced standup comedy I’m Dying Up Here and John Ridley’s Idris Elba-starring miniseries Guerrilla, we’ve even got the first trailers.
We already know that Avengers: Infinity War will feature the biggest roster of MCU characters yet — even bigger than Captain America: Civil War, no doubt, as Marvel’s next Avengers chapter is set to deliver an epic conclusion to Phase 3 (and finally give Thanos a chance to stretch his space-legs). Now that the studio has scaled the two-parter back to one film, it’s unclear if that lineup will still be as massive as originally planned, but it looks like we know of at least a couple more characters who will return.
We’re less than a week away from yet another entry into the late-night world, albeit a unique streaming experience only Netflix’s Chelsea can offer three nights a week. See for yourself, as Handler’s first week will include everyone from Drew Barrymore to Civil War’s Team Cap, and far from just sitting behind a desk.
Would you like to watch 38 seconds of Black Panther brawling with Bucky Barnes on a rooftop in Captain America: Civil War? Of course you would. And thanks to the video above, you can. Marvel has released a new clip from their upcoming film, in which the two heroes engage in a riveting fight, and Chadwick Boseman shows off some seriously slick moves.
Much has been made about the “friendship” between Captain America and Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though most take their relationship as face value, there is a growing subset of fans who are reading a little bit more into their bond, something far more romantic. They even have a clever portmanteau: Stucky (Steve/Bucky). There have been entire articles examining the “barely concealed intimations of love” between Cap and Bucky. And don’t even get me started on Tumblr. All that speculation and slashfic is about to get a major boost as the directors of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War have described the movie as a “love story.”
Whose side will you be on when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters next May? That’s the big question in this brief behind-the-scenes video from the Disney Channel — will you side with Tony Stark and the government, or go rogue with Captain America? From what we’ve seen in the trailers, there won’t be any clear winner in this battle, but if we had to choose a side, we’d probably stick with Cap.
The Bronze was the first film to get critics buzzing at Sundance earlier this year, inspiring some fairly divisive reactions to the raunchy comedy starring The Big Bang Theory’s Melissa Rauch as a foul-mouthed, washed-up former Olympic gymnast. The first trailer has finally arrived to give you a NSFW taste of what all the fuss was about — turns out, it just sort of looks okay.
Last week Zack Snyder served Marvel a diss while discussing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and reiterating that the film is very serious and mythological. Shots were effectively fired, and this week they’re being returned by Sebastian Stan, who serves a diss right back at Snyder and DC while talking up Winter Soldier’s role in Captain America: Civil War.
