Robert Downey Jr. Says CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 Is “Gonna Be Huge” Thus Putting Hugeness Doubts to Rest

I enjoy Marvel’s constant change-ups with fan expectations.  Immediately following Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it was looking like Captain America 3 would be driven by the hunt for Bucky.  That could still be the case in terms of a baseline or prologue, but what Marvel is really going for is setting up a big plot arc with Civil War (a.k.a “Thanos Who?”), and they managed to nab Robert Downey Jr. as a co-lead.  There are plenty of reasons to be excited for the third Captain America movie because the future is wonderful, mysterious, and glorious place where anything is possible.

And we will be able to let our imaginations run wild for almost a year as we wonder what Marvel is cooking, and everyone involved in Cap 3 has to be evasive until Entertainment Weekly gets a big, studio-timed cover story that reveals actual information.  But until then, RDJ has some comments on the upcoming sequel.  Hit the jump for more.  Captain America 3 opens May 6, 2016.

Joe and Anthony Russo certainly have their hands full with Captain America 3, especially now that Marvel’s close to closing a deal to recruit another Avenger, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, and things might only get bigger for the brothers.  It’s being reported that after the Russos finish up Captain America 3 that they may move on to direct Avengers 3 and possibly Avengers 4, too.

Hit the jump for more on that as well as some additional rumors regarding the plan to incorporate Iron Man into Captain America 3, including the film’s potential titles.

Robert Downey Jr. Joins CAPTAIN AMERICA 3; “Civil War” Storyline Pits Iron Man vs. Captain America

Last week, Robert Downey Jr. went on the record to clarify that Iron Man 4 was not in the cards for him.  Instead, Downey promised, “I’m still going to be involved with Marvel and there’s going to be plenty of other fun stuff.”  Downey also hinted at a secret plan he expected Marvel to announce soon.  That plan was revealed tonight.

Downey is close to signing a deal to co-star in Captain America 3.  The sequel will use the “Civil War” storyline, where the Superhero Registration Act mandates that anyone with superhuman abilities register with the U.S. government and agree to act as law enforcement.  Captain America opposes the legislation, but Iron Man supports it, setting up Downey to play the villain.  More after the jump.

Here’s the deal, Internet: I’ll provide you with interview footage of Jeremy Renner basically confirming Hawkeye’s appearance in Captain America 3 if you make me a GIF of Renner’s dramatic winks.  Sound good?

There have been a few similar unofficial confirmations of just such an occurrence in recent weeks.  Captain America 3 directors Joe and Anthony Russo themselves mentioned Hawkeye’s involvement in the film during Steve’s interview with them for Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray release, and around the same time, Renner mentioned the possibility of joining the film as long as his schedule allowed it.  This one sounds like a safe bet.  Hit the jump to hear it (and see it) from Renner himself.

It can’t be easy stepping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially after Avengers scored over $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office, but that’s exactly what directors Joe and Anthony Russo did on Captain America: The Winter Solider, and they pulled it off.  However, now that Winter Solider is a certified hit, the pressure is back on because many are probably wondering, can they do it again with Captain America 3 in 2016?

While talking to the duo for the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Solider Blu-ray release, they admitted that the stakes were sky-high when they first jumped into that one, but also pointed out that when we see the title for Cap 3, we’ll understand how high they still are now.  Hit the jump to read or watch about that, the minimal amount of deleted scenes, their thoughts on the Winter Solider Honest Trailer, their Captain America Omnibus Compendium, if Community and Captain America exist in the same universe, and more.

Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier was—and is—one of the biggest films of the year.  Though its status as the domestic box office champion of 2014 will be usurped, fittingly, by Guardians of the Galaxy, the Cap follow-up garnered positive reviews and an overall stellar reaction from fans in general.  As such, many were pleased to hear that The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo would be returning to helm the next sequel, Captain America 3.  Though the pic’s May 6, 2016 release date may feel far off, it’s actually on deck as the next Marvel Studios film to start production after Ant-Man.

Steve recently sat down with the Russo brothers in anticipation of the release of The Winter Soldier on Blu-ray, and during the course of their conversation the duo also talked fairly extensively about Captain America 3.  In addition to revealing that filming on Cap 3 begins in April in Atlanta, the Russo brothers also discussed how much of sequel’s story was dictated by Marvel beforehand, revealing that Kevin Feige offered up a concept that’s been in his head for a long time.  They also talked about the script’s evolution since February, Hawkeye’s involvement, when they’ll announce the title, delving further into the Winter Soldier character, envisioning the sequels as a two-part story, the return of Frank Grillo‘s Crossbones, and more.  Watch and read the interview after the jump.

Jeremy Renner Says “There Are Rumblings” of Hawkeye Joining CAPTAIN AMERICA 3; Talks Upcoming Schedule

It’s no secret that when an actor signs on to star in a Marvel Studios film, his or her contract also contains options to appear in X number of films for the studio.  The number varies from actor to actor (Samuel L. Jackson signed for nine movies, Chris Evans signed for six), but it helps ensure that the folks at Marvel can call on one of their many comic book characters to appear in any combination of films.  Since The Avengers, the team of superheroes has become more close knit, and so it makes sense that they would begin to populate each other’s movies going forward.  In the case of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel opted to have a S.H.I.E.L.D.-heavy sequel with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Jackson’s Nick Fury playing major roles in the second Cap film.

Production just began on Marvel’s Ant-Man, but the next Marvel film set for release after the Paul Rudd-fronted feature is Captain America 3.  Directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo are likely fine-tuning the script for the third Cap film as we speak, and when we recently spoke with Jeremy Renner in anticipation of his upcoming film Kill the Messenger, he revealed that there are “rumblings” that Renner’s Hawkeye might have a supporting role in Cap 3.  More after the jump.

The Russo Brothers Say CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 Continues the Steve/Bucky Relationship

captain-america-3-news-agent-carter-russo-brothers

It’s an impressive feat for any film to crack a $90 million opening weekend at the box office, but Marvel Studios is 2 for 2 this year in that regard.  Guardians of the Galaxy just opened to a stellar $94.3 million this past weekend, and earlier this year Captain America: The Winter Soldier launched to $95 million, which currently stands as the second highest opening of the year.  Marvel has already confirmed sequels for both films, and the first out of the gate will be Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016.  The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo are returning to helm the third standalone Cap film, and they’re currently hard at work developing the pic.

With The Winter Soldier hitting Blu-ray next month, the Russo brothers recently spoke a bit about Captain America 3, revealing that it picks up “a couple years” after the events of the second film and will continue exploring Steve’s relationship with his resurrected pal Bucky.  Additionally, the Russo brothers reiterated that they will be returning to television to direct a few episodes of Marvel’s upcoming new series Marvel’s Agent Carter.  More after the jump.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Deleted Scene Tests Maria Hill’s Loyalties

With the Blu-ray/DVD a little over a month away, the first Captain America: The Winter Soldier deleted scene has found its way online.  The scene features Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), which is always a good thing, although since it was left on the cutting room floor, I’m also somewhat disappointed.  What I like about this scene is that it reveals Hill’s ability to level veiled threats and deceive the people around her.  The scene defines her more as a spy than a soldier, and while I can understand that this scene is a bit superfluous, it still fits in nicely with soldier/spy conflict represented by Captain America and Black Widow.

Hit the jump to check out the Captain America: The Winter Soldier deleted scene, and click here for what directors Joe and Anthony Russo had to say about the sequel.  The film also stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Anthony Mackie, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L.

Watch: Every Marvel Easter Egg Explained Through THOR: THE DARK WORLD

by     Posted 91 days ago

marvel-easter-eggs-explained

When Marvel Studios kicked off its first independent production with Iron Man in 2008, few could have predicted that it would become the juggernaut that it is today.  “Marvel” is no longer just the company, it’s the brand name.  This is why Guardians of the Galaxy is much less of a risk than people might think; a “Marvel Movie” is a massive selling point in and of itself.  One of the benefits of the autonomy that Marvel Studios has enjoyed over the past few years is the ability to pepper its films with Easter Eggs that actually pay off, rather than ones that are just simply sly nods to the source material that never go anywhere (though there are a few of those too).  In celebration of this weekend’s release of Guardians of the Galaxy, a video has been put together that points out every single Easter Egg in the Marvel films through Thor: The Dark World, from obvious ones like Cap’s shield in Iron Man to more obscure comics references.

The world needs more Frank Grillo.  Not only is he a top-notch actor and kick-ass action star, but he’s also a super nice guy and absolute pleasure to interview, too.  He’s delivered quality material throughout his career, but the past three years have marked one standout success after the next with Grillo going from Warrior to The Grey then End of Watch, Zero Dark Thirty and he keeps tacking on more.

While talking to Grillo about his next big release, The Purge: Anarchy, he also took the time to update Collider on a number of upcoming projects.  He gave us some details on his character in the new DirecTV series, Kingdom, confirmed that he’s officially attached to Patrick HughesThe Raid remake, discussed the status of his seemingly long-lost horror movie, Demonic, and also hinted at Rumlow’s return in Captain America 3.

Superhero Box Office 2014: How CAPTAIN AMERICA 2, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, and X-MEN Stack Up to Previous Installments

It’s no secret that superheroes rule the box office.  Studios are scrambling to tap into the genre with whatever comics characters they may have the rights to, and ever since The Avengers, the goal has now been to build interconnected superhero universes that tell stories across multiple films and characters.  The 2014 slate has its fair share of superhero blockbusters, but halfway into the year we’ve already seen most of them.  With Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and X-Men: Days of Future Past having already opened in theaters, that leaves us with only Marvel’s August offering Guardians of the Galaxy and Disney’s animated Big Hero 6 in November.

Seeing as how the longevity of superhero adaptations is predicated upon how well the films do at the box office, we felt now would be a good time to take a look at how Cap 2, Spider-Man 2, and X-Men fared at both the domestic and international box office this year, and how they stack up to previous installments in their respective franchises.  Read on after the jump.
