Han Solo: Paul Bettany To Replace Michael K. William In ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff
eelyajekiM   |  

Ron Howard and Paul Bettany On Han Solo Set

You have to hand it to Ron Howard for handling the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff as well as he is. For one thing, he is a bit more transparent, giving fans a look at everything that is going on behind the scenes, even he is releasing meaningless photos of craft food services. But for what it’s worth we are getting better looks at the set than we ever did before. But these reshoots have forced Michael K. William‘s character to be cut out of the entire film. While we knew he would have played “a half-human, half-animal” who was a “kick-ass character,” cutting his character seemed to indicate it wasn’t of major significance.

However, it appears that the character does hold some weight in the film. So much so that Howard turned to a reliable friend to act as William’s replacement. With a few caveats of course. That actor is a Beautiful Mind star Paul Bettany, whom you may know as Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More on the story below.

Movie Review: Captain America: Civil War

Movie Review: Captain America: Civil War, starring Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr.

Captain America: Civil War
Director: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Screenwriter: Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely
Cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd

Release Date: May 6, 2016

“United we stand. Divided we fall.”

In 2011, Super Soldier Steve Rogers made his debut in Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger. Influenced by Raiders of the Lost Ark and Johnston’s own 1991 film, The Rocketeer, The First Avenger was designed as a ’40s adventure serial. 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, was a ’70s political thriller in the vein of Three Days of the Condor and All the President’s Men.

The Russos’ follow-up, Captain America: Civil War, is influenced by movies like The Godfather Part II and The Empire Strikes Back, sprawling sagas that tell intricate stories where every character has an arc. And like those enduring classics, Civil War is a gripping, emotionally resonant film that enriches and deepens a mythology and our connection to it. Its greatness lies in the groundwork laid by its predecessors; twelve films that comprise an unprecedented experiment in long-form storytelling, the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Top 10 Things Team Iron Man Said At The ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Press Conference
eelyajekiM   |  

Captain America: Civil War Team Iron Man

Captain America: Civil War is a change of direction for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unlike previous films, Civil War explores the themes of internal conflict. When the Avengers fail to contain a hostile, governments from around the world unite to enforce the Sokova Accords, a governing system of checks and balances that would oversee and deploy the team whenever it is deemed necessary. That kind of oversight does not sit well with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), who firmly believes that the safest hands are their own. However, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) fully supports government oversight and accountability. This puts a rift in their friendship, and to make matters worse Bucky (Sebastian Stan) is forced out of hiding when he is accused of acts of terrorism.

We were invited to sit with a group of our fellow journalists at the press conference for Captain America: Civil War where the panel was broken down into two panels. One for Team Iron Man and the other for Team Cap. Below you will find the top ten most interesting things that were said at the Team Iron Man panel, which featured the talents of Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Paul Bettany, Emily VanCamp, director Anthony Russo, and Marvel Studio President Kevin Feige. Check out what they had to say below.

There are no successful superhero film franchises under one roof like the ones over at Marvel Studios. Time and time again the studio has repeated its success, risen to beat expectations, and even found ways to reinvent itself to keep their respective franchises fresh and engaging. These sequels are no longer sequels, they are political thrillers, fantasy adventures, buddy cops comedies, heist capers, space operas, and much more to come.

Now the studio will christen Phase 3 of the MCU with a bold new storytelling direction. Starting off with Captain America: Civil War, where our heroes and their beliefs come into conflict as Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) will engage in an ideological battle that will determine the fate of the Avengers.

We’ve recently posted two sets of posters that reveal who is on Team Cap and who is on Team Iron Man. As you may have already seen in the trailers, there has been a certain webslinging hero who has been missing from the entire marketing campaign. So will he make an appearance in this trailer? The short answer: Yes!

New ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Posters Declare: “Divided We Fall”
eelyajekiM   |  

Captain America: Civil War

With a title like Captain America: Civil War, heroes that were once allies are now enemies fighting for a cause. In this case, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) believes that the Avengers have put the world through enough with their vigilante actions and unchecked heroics, and supports a new initiative where a governing body would determine when they would deploy the heroes. However, Captain America (Chris Evans) believes in the opposite. Then there is the fact that his friend, the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) has been discovered, and there are governments who want him to stand trial for his crimes. A lot will happen that will force these two to go to battle against each other, and now, a new set of released posters will give us an idea of who is for a government oversight and who is against it.

Check out the six new character posters below.

New ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Images Confirm Martin Freeman’s Character
eelyajekiM   |  

Captain America: Civil War Captain America Iron Man

As the title may suggest, Captain America: Civil War will be an adaptation of the Marvel comic book story arc of the same name that pits its title character against Iron Man, a friend and ally, over differing ideals of how The Avengers should be governed. Such an event would require more than just the amount of characters you would see in these solo films. This is an ensemble event, and as such you would need to bring major characters from previous films to go into battle amongst one another.

But you’ll also have to introduce some new characters, and Civil War does just that by adding Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and a mysterious character to be played by Martin Freeman. There were a few rumors surrounding Freeman’s character, one of the most notable ones being that he is a U.S. representative for the fictional African nation of Wakanda, where T’Challa aka Black Panther hails from. This has been confirmed in a brand new report. There are also a few new images to look at which feature Frank Grillo in full-on heavy Crossbones gear, Iron Man and Captain America looking into each other’s eyes, and Scarlet Witch conjuring some chaos magic. Check it out in the image gallery here below.
