Today, we’ve already seen set photos from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and now we’ve got some more from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The upcoming sequel sees Captain America (Chris Evans) teaming up with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) to track down the nefarious Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Filming is underway in Cleveland, which is standing in for Washington, D.C. and the scene has S.W.A.T. and police involved in a shootout of some kind. The photos also show us Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) wandering around, but these images don’t hint at how the character is involved in the scene.
Hit the jump to check out the photos as well as video from the set. The film also stars Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, and Robert Redford. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 2, 2014.
Another day, another collection of new photos from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. One of the photos is from director Marc Webb‘s Twitter feed, and shows a futuristic room the director has labeled as “the future”. In the future, people just leave their clothes and gun strewn about. At least there’s the digital lock by the door, and hopefully the security has been upgraded from the first film where anyone was welcome as long as they could solve a puzzle (a.k.a. “Bridge Troll Security”).
There’s also some leaked photos from the set, and as you’ll see Spider-Man has a very important call to take. If this is his cell phone, your guess is as good as mine as to where he keeps it on his skin-tight costume. Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.

Shooting wrapped some time ago on The Wolverine, but director James Mangold is happy to keep tweeting set photos. The latest is a fight between Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Lord Shingen (Hiroyuki Sanada), and Mangold added, “Hiro Sanada and HJ rehearse clash of claws and blades. Hiro is a truly great actor, martial artist and friend.” I’m sure all of this true, but what I don’t understand about this set photo is how Wolverine is even having a battle against a guy with a sword unless the sword is adamantium. Adamantium swords would be awesome.

Earlier this week, we got our first look at the highly-anticipated new series, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The new series takes place after The Avengers, and has Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) leading a new team of S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives against supernatural forces. Today, seven more seconds of precious footage have been released, and Coulson announces “Welcome to Level 7″. Some may wonder, “What is Level 7″? I wonder if these incredibly brief snippets of footage will be a consistent thing throughout the summer. If so, that’s incredibly obnoxious. The people who would watch seven seconds of footage are already going to see the show. Provide real trailers or keep the show under wraps (I suspect the next major look at the show will come during Comic-Con).

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything on Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop. The film was originally scheduled to open in August, but was pushed back to next February. The last time we saw anything from the movie was in November, but now some new set photos and video have surfaced. These images show off the costume in greater detail, and while there’s been some inevitable grumbling, I like the new look. The original outfit is iconic, and this isn’t a radical departure, but it has enough of its own flavor to pay homage while still finding away to stand apart. As for the video, fast motorcycles are fast.

The first set photos from The Wachowski Siblings‘ Jupiter Ascending have landed online. The film follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who has to scrub toilets for a living, but then discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe. Channing Tatum co-stars as a genetically engineered ex-military hunter who must track her down. The costumes and makeup on some of the extras look like 17th century French royalty that had their clothes tailored in Southeast Asia. I like it. We can also see some extras who I assume will also be wearing masks/helmets over the non-blackened parts of their faces. In other Jupiter Ascending news, the production has been shooting at London’s Natural History Museum, and a source tells The Sun, “A skate ramp has been built over the top of the huge dinosaur in the foyer for a climax chase scene.” I think it’s just a ramp unless someone actually skates on it. If Channing Tatum ends up using a skateboard to jump over a dinosaur, this will be the best movie of the decade.

The set photos from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 continue to roll in. This past weekend, director Marc Webb gave us an official look at Paul Giamatti as The Rhino, and now we not only have more images of tattooed Giamatti, but Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) engaging in some superheroics. That bus full of innocent passengers will most likely be saved unless Webb is considering a dastardly twist where Spider-Man lets it fall on the little girl. In all fairness, she is wearing a stupid-looking backpack.

Back in December, we learned that X-Men: Days of Future Past would (sadly) be in 3D. It’s not too surprising since 3D is currently paying huge dividends from international box office. It’s still a boost in the U.S. but the novelty has cooled as audiences have discovered that most movies aren’t exactly Avatar when it comes to 3D. Hopefully, international audiences will make this discovery soon, and we’ll be done with this broken technology that rarely adds anything and is undermined by cheap chain theaters who don’t want to spring for bulbs that would show 3D at its proper brightness.
Thankfully, Bryan Singer is at least shooting X-Men: Days of Future Past in 3D rather than post-converting it. He also tweeted that he’ll be using Simul-Cam. For those who don’t know, Simul-Cam allows the director to see a rough digital version of the motion-capture figures. Could this be for the Sentinels? Hit the jump to see an image of Singer’s “friggin mission control”. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
[If you aren't familiar with the most well-known Spider-Man comic stories, you should probably just stop reading now] Comic book adaptations don’t require strict adherence to the comics. In Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man, the director took one of the comics’ defining stories—”The Death of Gwen Stacy”—and re-appropriated so that Green Goblin dropped Mary Jane off the bridge instead of Gwen Stacy, and Spider-Man saved his falling love-interest instead of accidentally snapping her neck due to the speed of acceleration being suddenly halted by his web-line. So the question that hangs over The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is if director Marc Webb will follow The Amazing Spider-Man #121-122 (June–July 1973), “The Night Gwen Stacy Died”. New set photos may have the answer.

Filming is underway on Joe and Anthony Russo‘s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The upcoming sequel sees Captain America (Chris Evans) teaming up with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) to track down the nefarious Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). We saw the first set photos a couple weeks ago, and these new ones show Cap and Black Widow in their civilian outfits, but still on a mission, or at least hopefully on a mission. I’m not comfortable with the idea of Steve Rogers going around during his downtime and randomly seizing people by their lapels.

The deluge of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set photos continues. Last week, we got our first official look at Jamie Foxx in his non-Electro form, and these unofficial set photos provide more shots of the antagonist and his atrocious hairstyle. I’ll caution that these set photos are moving us closer to understanding the character’s arc and his relationship to Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield), so spoiler-phobes should consider themselves warned. Director Marc Webb has also released a couple of innocuous set photos, and we’ve thrown those in as well.

Yesterday, we got our first look at Jamie Foxx as a very blue Electro in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Today, more set photos have surfaced to show the villain wearing a parka, and it could be part of the costume since the set photos also show co-stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in winter coats. It’s also possible that he’s wearing it to cover up his costume to prevent it from being seen in leaked set photos such as these.

The first set photos from Captain America: The Winter Soldier have leaked online. These images are sure to be the just the beginning of the many, many, many set photos that inevitably leak when filming on a blockbuster is underway. At least these show us the main characters as opposed to something bland like sets that are still under construction. As we previously reported, the upcoming sequel will not only feature Captain America (Chris Evans) but Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) in what sounds like a co-lead role as the two hunt down the mysterious Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).

Jamie Foxx blue himself. Set photos of Foxx as The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s villainous Electro have leaked online, and they are somewhat surprising. Foxx commented on the look of his character back in December saying that the costume would be black, and the filmmakers wanted “to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happened.” That still didn’t prepare us for the look of his clearly mutated character. The scene appears to take place before Electro gets his full costume, but the hoodie looks like it has tracking dots to add special effects in post production.
