The wait is over, the Captain America: Civil War trailer has finally dropped as Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. visited the Jimmy Kimmel show last night to reveal the new spot. Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain. Captain America: Civil War opens in theatres on May 6th.
As most of you know Universal Pictures has been gearing up to launch a shared cinematic universe with their classic monsters roster. Today that universe got a HUGE step forward as Variety is reporting that Tom Cruise has signed on to star in the first movie The Mummy. The Mummy will be directed by Alex Kurtzman based on a script from Jon Spaihts (the writer of Prometheus). The Mummy reboot is set for release on March 24, 2017 with another Untitled Universal Monster Movie set to follow it on March 30, 2018.

Robert Clark writes: Hey guys! Would you be interested in seeing another non-Star Wars movie directed by George Lucas?
Benjamin Weaver writes: Hi, guys. I love your stuff. You keep talking about who might die in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. John Campea keeps thinking that it will be Finn. I don’t think so because it would upset a lot of people wanting to see a major black character in Star Wars. My question is: What if no significant characters die in the movie? (not including minor characters). What if every major player is alive at least at the end of Episode VII?
Ryan Boucher writes: Hey guys, love the show, do you think that The Force Awakens will at least have references to the prequel trilogy, I know they were not as loved as the original trilogy, but it would be nice to at least see a planet like Naboo or Kashyyk return, what are your thoughts, thanks.
G’Colby Porter writes: Hi guys, I know people aren’t fans of A Million Ways to Die in the West, but I’m in the minority who liked it. And I thought Seth MacFarlane was not as bad as people said he was. I think he has real potential to become an actor. So I ask you guys, would you like Seth MacFarlane as a live action actor, if he had a better director and script?
