Remakes and Sequels That Were Better Than the Originals
Sometimes, sequels and remakes actual surpass their inspiration.
Sorry, ‘The Winter Soldier’ Is Not a ’70s Conspiracy Thriller
The second Captain America movie is good, but was the hype about its paranoid style overblown? ScreenCrush’s look at the entire history of the MCU continues...
'Agents of SHIELD' Almost Had 'Cap' Star Emily VanCamp Cameo
It’s been several seasons since Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. made effort to feature any cinematic characters, but one missed opportunity could have set up some intriguing Captain America ties. Emily VanCamp was at one point supposed to appear on S.H.I.E.L.D. as Agent 13/Sharon Carter, but missed out over scheduling conflicts.
What's It Like to Play a Superhero?
Chris Sarris is a normal dude from Cleveland, Ohio. Co-workers describe him as “the guy in the office that says ‘This is what we did’ when giving a presentation to the boss, even though he did all the work.” Chris also has a bit of a secret: He played Steve Rogers in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

'Agent Carter' Season 2: No 'Winter Soldier' or Arnim Zola
The 1940s timeline of Marvel’s Agent Carter makes Peggy’s adventures seemingly difficult to connect to the present-day MCU, though the first season finale certainly suggested that Arnim Zola might take a larger role in Season 2, potentially exploring The Winter Soldier’s origins. Not so, according to showrunners, who tease that new recognizable Marvel baddies lie in store for Agent Carter Season 2.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe By the Numbers
With the arrival of Avengers: Age of Ultron this week, we are officially 11 movies deep in the wildly ambitious and massively popular Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not including TV shows like Daredevil, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, that’s approximately 23 hours of superhero content, or 1,384 minutes to be exact.
