Captain America: The Winter Soldier Chris Evans

After eight long years of being Captain America, Chris Evans has announced that he’s done playing the character. It’s not entirely unexpected considering that his contract was expiring in 2019.

But for those who have been following Steven Rogers’ career from Captain America who brought down HYDRA in World War II to a fugitive who survived Thanos’s snap, it is a bit of a somber moment. More on the story below.

Marvel's Iron Man Fireplace

Videos of a fireplace to put on your TV or computer screen this time of year is nothing new. You can even find a few on Netflix. Even without the added benefit of providing heat, they’re relaxing and make wherever you are feel more like home.

If you’re a geek looking for a nice cracklin’ fire to put on in the background while working or hanging out with friends and family, Marvel has you covered. They’ve released a collection of videos of the fireplaces in various Marvel heroes’ homes. Each is just over an hour long, and includes Captain America‘s Brooklyn apartment, Ms. Marvel‘s New Jersey home, Thor‘s Asgard home, Iron Man‘s Manhattan apartment, and the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s spaceship and its fancy futuristic fire. There’s also a second close-up version of each of these.

Captain America: Civil War

Whenever a hero decides to pass the torch to another hero or just decide to live the rest of their lives as their alter-ego, it’s a pretty big thing. But what happens when there is no one to pick up the shield in your absence. That is going to be the big question going into the Marvel Cinematic Universe post-Captain America: Civil War as one of the most prominent members of the Avengers will no longer be recognized by the patriotic moniker.

Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo recently revealed the fate of Steve Rogers’ status as a hero, and what it may mean for the future of MCU. More on the story below, oh, and of course, spoilers below if you haven’t already seen it.

You know, I don’t think anyone has ever sent me an article of clothing to review before. But I can’t say that anymore after this, because Celebs Clothing was gracious enough to send me one of their Captain America Varsity Jacket for my very own! How cool is that? I always like receiving gifts (who doesn’t?), but when it’s from someone I’ve never met, that’s particularly awesome!

To be completely honest, they actually sent me a list of different jackets from which to choose. Batman, Deadpool, Suicide Squad, Superman, and more! But I’ve always wanted some Cap merch so I went with the red, white, and blue!

Make sure to check out the pictures here below of the jacket I tried out.

‘Captain America: Civil War’: A 12-Year-Old’s Thoughts

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

Captain America: Civil War is the 13th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The ongoing film series started back with Jon Favreau’s 2008 Iron Man, and has hit some incredible highs and some modest middles… honestly none of the films are bad, some just mildly disappointing. Directed again by the Russo Brothers (Captain America: Winter Soldier), the new film is the most challenging of the MCU thus far, asking the audience to choose sides over the Sokovia Accords, a treaty signed by hundreds of nations that would put the Avengers under the control of the UN. This is in response to all the past events in the series, but specifically an Avengers mission in Nigeria that stopped a sinister plot, but left many civilians dead. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is sick of watching his technology kill innocents, so he is firmly pro-Accords, whereas Captain America (Chris Evans) believes the whole point of the Avengers is to do what they feel must be done without interference. Things get more complicated when Cap’s old best friend and former brainwashed Hydra assassin Bucky, aka The Winter Soldier, (Sebastian Stan) is blamed for a terrorist attack.

Civil War marks the beginning of the MUC’s Phase 3, which includes a whopping 10 films, including standalones for Doctor Strange (November 2016), Spider-Man (July 2017), and Black Panther (July 2018), as well as sequels for Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy. By the time Phase 3 gets to the two-part climactic Infinity War saga in 2018-19, my son will be a 15-year-old high schooler. As for now, 12-year-old Brandon is obsessed with all things MCU. After seeing Civil War for a third time Thursday night, we got into a near hour-long Q&A about the film, the characters, and all things MCU. So I decided to track some of our talk in a little interview to give the pre-teen perspective.

Spoilers if you haven’t seen Captain America: Civil War yet…

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
Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures | Marvel Studios
Rated PG-13 | 147 Minutes
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.

Honest Trailer Captain America 1990

If you’re thinking, “Wait, there was a Captain America movie in 1990?!?” Well, don’t get too excited. Imagine far back to a darker time, when Marvel didn’t know how to make superhero movies, and DC movies ruled the universe… this was one year after Burton’s Batman. With Civil War coming to theatres this week, and with all the good Cap movies already done, the gang at Screen Junkies went deep into the VHS stacks, and dusted off the horrible 1990 Captain America for this week’s Honest Trailer.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.
