Worst Previews wrote:Mysterious Marvel Film Going Head to-Head with "Batman vs Superman" Revealed

Last year, Marvel announced that it will release a new superhero film on May 6th, 2016, but refused to reveal which film they will actually release. Then came news that Warner Bros moved its "Batman vs Superman" film to the same date.

During a recent interview, Marvel head Kevin Feige confirmed that the company is not afraid to going head-to-head with "Batman vs Superman" and will not back down from the May 6th, 2016 release date.

Feige went on to promise that Marvel will reveal which film will fill that date soon. Apparently that came sooner than expected because THR is now reporting that the film is the third "Captain America" installment.

Question: Are you more interested in watching "Captain America 3" or "Batman vs Superman"?

Between the two it's 'Superman 2' for me, but I'm interested in both films naturally. These two characters had such a long history together that it's amazing the're finally head to head again. 8-)

Worst Previews wrote:"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Actors Comment on Going Up Against "Batman vs Superman" in 2016

While promoting "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan and Samuel L Jackson were asked about whether "Captain America 3" will be able to compete against "Batman vs Superman" when both films hit theaters on May 6th, 2016.

"All you really have to know [to answer] that question is just look at the track record of Marvel vs DC... Green Lantern," laughed Stan. "You know, I'm biased. I'm on this side."

Evans was surprised to find out that the two superhero films were going up against each other. "Really? I didn't even know that. Wow, really? Wait a minute, so you're saying we have to go against them? Well, that's a shame."

Meanwhile, Jackson believes that "Batman vs Superman" will have trouble competing with "Captain America 3." He said: "The bar is going higher and higher and hopefully these guys can get up there on that bar. DC's having some issues. DC's having a little trouble with Marvel."

Collider wrote:CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 Plot Might Borrow from “1950s Psychotic Cap” Storyline

Marvel’s much-anticipated Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in just about two weeks, but there has already been some news about that film’s eventual follow-up. Recently, it was revealed that Captain America 3 would be opening on May 6, 2016 (the same day as WB’s Man of Steel sequel). We know that Joe and Anthony Russo will return for the third film, and that they’re currently breaking the story with returning screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. While promoting the upcoming film, the screenwriters may have let slip the comics source for the framework of the plot of the next installment.

In an interview with Den of Geek (via BC), Markus and McFeely grudgingly shared this little plot nugget for Captain America 3:

Are you going back to the comics for the next one and plan to adapt another story, while incorporating the many threads left open at the end of this one?

McFeely: Oh yeah, you can probably predict some of the threads we would like to pick up again that we’ve laid out there. And we always go back to the comics and dive back in and look at anything we’ve missed in the last few years that might be relevant.

Markus: We’ve definitely set out on a more realistic road in the Cap movies, you know. Even more grounded than in the other MCU movies. And so it kind of rules out Cap fighting the Dinosaur Man or something like that. There are some that aren’t gonna start and other ones that — I mean there’s a couple we’re playing with right now that we really want to take elements from. Which we’ll not reveal.

Oh, come on.

Markus: All I’m saying is psychotic 1950s Cap.

That last comment likely excited longtime Cap comics fans, but probably doesn’t mean much to newcomers to the property. While the Winter Soldier storyline is a pretty ambitious journey to undertake, the storyline Markus could be referencing is even crazier. Here’s an attempt to give you the short version:

Continuously published from 1941 to 1949, Captain America was relaunched in the 50s to little fanfare. The stories featured both Cap and Bucky taking on an obviously Communist Red Skull. This plotline was more or less forgotten – even by Stan Lee himself – and Cap was revived again in 1964, along with the story that he’d been in a state of suspended animation since the end of World War II. This revelation placed the 50s run out of canon, until a 1972 Steve Englehart run that attempted to explain the anomaly in a bit of retroactive continuity.

This explanation posited that “an unnamed man and his teenaged student had assumed both the public and private identities of the original Captain America and Bucky as part of a government-sponsored program which planned to replace the lost heroes to combat the “red threat” (i.e. communism).” (Via Wikipedia) The Super-Soldier Serum for this pair, however, was flawed, and led them to develop psychotic side-effects. The government then placed these failed subjects in suspended animation, until they were revived years later to battle the current iteration of heroes.

Pretty crazy stuff, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. “1950s Captain America”, or Captain America IV as he was also known, also once assumed the identity of the “Grand Director”, a leader of a Neo-Nazi force. His name was recently revealed to be William Burnside, so if you see it pop up, it’s this whole insane storyline that’s being referenced. Good luck researching this one down the rabbit hole!

Worst Previews wrote:Chris Evans is Quitting Acting

Chris Evans previously hinted that he would like to take a break from acting and focus on his directing career. But during a new interview, he pretty much confirmed that he's quitting acting.

"If I'm acting at all, it's going to be under Marvel contract, or I'm going to be directing," he explained. "I can't see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I'm contractually obligated to do."

Evans' six-picture Marvel contract expires in 2017. At that point, the studio may offer him a ridiculous amount of money to return, but it seems that the actor will turn down any and all acting jobs.

Evans revealed that his agents tried to change his mind, asking him: "What if, hypothetically, some role came along and it was great?" Evans replied: "We are turning a corner," indicating that he's looking for a permanent change in his career.

Moviehole wrote:Captain America 3 skedded for May 6, 2016

“Captain America 3″ will release May 6, 2016 – going up against “Batman vs. Superman”.

Marvel are obviously confident they can compete, maybe even squish, Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent at the box-office. Having said that, it’s possible, as the days tick on, that one of the film’s moves from the release date.

“Captain America 3″, to be again directed by Joe & Anthony Russo (“Captain America : The Winter Soldier”), will likely tie into the events of the upcoming “Avengers : Age of Ultron”.

It was inevitable for DC and Marvel to clash so... Fine, this is WAR. :twisted:

Worst Previews wrote:Warner Bros Says "Batman vs Superman" or "Captain America 3" Must Change Its Release Date

When it was announced that Warner Bros moved its "Batman vs Superman" film to May 6th, 2016, it created a bit of a stir since Marvel is planning to release "Captain America 3" on the same date.

Just yesterday, Marvel commented on the situation, revealing that it will not budge from the date. Now, Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros also made a comment.

"It doesn't make a lot of sense for two huge superhero films to open on the same date, but there is a lot of time between now and [May 16th, 2016]," he said. "However, at this time, we are not considering a change of date for 'Batman vs. Superman.'"

Just as expected, it seems that Marvel and Warner Bros will play a game of chicken. Warner Bros probably feels confidant that Marvel will back down, but Marvel just scored big with "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and may feel that Warner Bros will have no choice but to back down. Stay tuned.

Unbelievable!! This is ridiculous. :x

Worst Previews wrote:Robert Downey Jr Joins "Captain America 3"!

Robert Downey Jr has been saying that Marvel is planning lots of surprises for fans. And now one of those surprises has been revealed.

According to Variety, Robert Downey Jr is in final negotiations to return as Tony Stark/Iron Man in "Captain America 3," which will once again be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier).

"Captain America 3" is set to hit theaters on May 6th, 2016.

Worst Previews wrote:Robert Downey Jr Says Superhero Genre is "Getting Old"

While promoting "The Judge," Robert Downey Jr spoke about the current state of superhero films. Surprisingly, he feels that the entire genre is getting old.

"Honestly, the whole thing is just showing the beginning signs of fraying around the edges. It's a little bit old," he said. "Last summer there were five or seven different ones out. I feel that they are critiqued by a different metric to any other movie. But also they are more forgiven because they operate on a different frequency."

With several major studios focusing their efforts on superhero films, they are betting that the genre is far from old. And according to Downey, the best has yet to come.

"This new 'Avengers' may well be the best Marvel movie, and by the way that's saying a lot, because I thought 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was great," he said. "And 'Iron Man 3' turned out great, and 'Cap 2' was awesome. And they'll be some surprises in the next little while too."

Changed the title temporarily as this is essentially 'Iron Man 4' with the 'Civil War' storyline.

Here's a little info on the Civil War storyline:

"The tagline for the series is "Whose Side Are You On?"

The plot of the series follows a framework storyline in which the U.S. government passes a Superhero Registration Act ostensibly designed to have superpowered characters act under official regulation, somewhat akin to police officers. The events of the series touch upon themes of liberty, moral responsibility, and civil order, with good-intentioned superhero characters finding themselves upon different sides."

If this is where Marvel is headed than I'm looking forward to Iron Man vs Captain America. Get it? Batman vs Superman! This is why WB and Disney put both films on the same release date, not exactly the same story but same outcome. :lol:

Anyway 'Smallville' done it with the V.R.A:



In all seriousness, Cap films have been great so far so I'm definitely looking forward to it.

Worst Previews wrote:"Captain America: Civil War" Story Details Revealed

We recently heard that Robert Downey Jr will reprise his Tony Stark/Iron Man role in the upcoming third "Captain America" film, called "Captain America: Civil War." Marvel has now confirmed the story, adding lots more details.

The "Civil War" storyline pits Stark against Captain America as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with super-human abilities to register themselves with the US government and agree to serve as part of a new police force. Stark supports the program, but Captain America does not, believing that it threatens the civil liberties of US citizens. Rogers and others opposing the act are forced to go on the run.

The comic book that the film is based on includes Spider-Man and other masked superheroes, which is why the US government wants to know who's behind the mask. According to Marvel head Kevin Feige, "secret identities aren't as important in [this] version of the story."

He added: "I don’t want to give too much away, but something happens. It has made the governments of the world say 'we need to have some oversight of these guys. They need to report to somebody, rather than 'you have to take off your mask.' It's not about the secret identity thing, as much as it is about, overall, who reports to who, and who can agree to oversight committee. Because as of now, in 'Avengers 2,' there is no more security council, there is no SHIELD. Stark is paying for it, Captain America is running it, and things occur that will make governments begin to question."

"Civil War," which is set to hit theaters on May 6th, 2016, will force Stark to turn on the rest of the Avengers and become a possible villain. The movie will also be the first time that we'll see Chadwick Boseman in his Black Panther costume.
