x Though Bucky Barnes (AKA the Winter Soldier/White Wolf) shouldered the brunt of villain duties on Captain America: Civil War, Baron Zemo was the one really pulling the strings. In the fallout of Avengers: Age of Ultron and its Battle of Sokovia, Zemo swore revenge on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and devised a plot to dismantle their team dynamic from the inside out. And so, the scientific genius known as Helmut Zemo killed King T’Chaka, only to pin the blame on Bucky Barnes, who was actually responsible for the death of Tony Stark’s parents while operating under the command of HYDRA. All of this culminated in Marvel’s Civil War, but as any MCU enthusiast will tell you, young T’Challa (the current Black Panther) spared Zemo’s life, leading many to wonder whether Daniel Brühl’s elusive villain will ever return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point in the future. Indeed, if Brühl has his … [Read more...] about Daniel Brühl Game To Reprise As Zemo For A Future Marvel Movie

Captain America: Civil War actor Daniel Brühl, who played Helmut Zemo, thinks the character could return in a future Marvel movie. Brühl’s Zemo made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as an antagonist in the third solo film following Steve Rogers aka. Captain America (Chris Evans). Civil War saw Zemo mastermind a plan that split up the Avengers – particularly Steve and Tony Stark aka. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) – as revenge for the destruction of Sokovia. During the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Zemo’s family was killed in the Battle of Sokovia, which was fought between the Avengers and Ultron.To get his revenge, Zemo killed the king of Wakanda, T’Chaka (John Kani), and framed Bucky Barnes aka. the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), leading T’Challa aka. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) to hunt down Steve’s best friend. As a result of his guilt over Sokovia, Tony sided with T’Challa and became an … [Read more...] about Zemo Could Return in a Future Marvel Film
One of the biggest reasons that Black Panther has been such a success at the box office (creeping up on $1 billion worldwide) is that it puts forth a cast of characters who aren’t usually seen headlining Hollywood blockbusters. For decades, studios have turned away from movies that didn’t have a white male lead because they believed that they weren’t as big of a box office draw. But with movies like Black Panther, audiences are starting to prove them wrong, and Marvel Studios intends to keep giving them what they want. Kevin Feige recently talked about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, albeit vaguely. While he wouldn’t give any specific hints as to what characters we might see come to the big screen or what direction current franchises might take, he did say that they would continue to bring diversity and representation to the comic book movie scene. The Future of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about what Marvel … [Read more...] about The Future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Diversity and Representation, Says Kevin Feige
x Whether you’re a fan of the DC Extended Universe or not, there’s no denying that the franchise has struggled to achieve the same sort of success with its shared universe model as Marvel has with the MCU. Five films in and only one has been deemed an all-round smash-hit – Wonder Woman. Given that, it’s no surprise that the latest comments from a DCEU producer suggest future installments will ditch the crossover angle and be much more standalone. Warner Bros./DC Films exec Charles Roven made some illuminating remarks when speaking to ComicBook.com recently. He promised that future DCEU movies would focus on “standalone characters,” a practice that would ensure that there will be a “constant freshness” to the franchise. “Warner Brothers has been – even before Wonder Woman came out – developing standalone characters, like they did with the Joker and Scorsese: they’ve got a project, and they’ve … [Read more...] about Future DCEU Movies Will Focus On Developing Standalone Characters
Just like in the DC Comics realm, the Marvel Comics mythology isn't limited to just one universe. While the majority of Marvel's comic book tales take place in one main continuity (officially known as Earth 616), there are numerous alternate realities where different versions of our favorite heroes and villains are having their own adventures, forming a Marvel multiverse. In recent years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has established its own multiverse, and Benedict Cumberbatch, who briefly reprised Doctor Strange in Thor: Ragnarok, has seemingly hinted that future Marvel movies could be spending more time in these other realities. As Cumberbatch put it: … [Read more...] about Did One Marvel Star Just Drop A Hint About The Multiverse In The MCU?

Martin Freeman is featured in Black Panther as C.I.A. agent Everett True after making his debut in Captain America: Civil War and now the actor has revealed that Ross will show up in future Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. It's been rumored that the character could show up in the upcoming Captain Marvel since it was made known that he used to be in the Air Force, which is where Carol Danvers starts her journey into becoming Captain Marvel. There are SPOILERS for Black Panther ahead, read at your own risk. In a new interview promoting Black Panther, Martin Freeman said that he will be in future MCU projects as Everett Ross. There is a lot of speculation about the Captain Marvel connection since it takes place in the early 90s, which makes sense in Ross' timeline as well for his time in service. However, the mention of his Air Force background may have only been brought up in Black Panther to make it seem realistic when he was remotely flying the ship back on Wakanda. Martin Freeman … [Read more...] about Everett Ross Will Return in Future Marvel Movies Promises Martin Freeman
Are we in for another rather unexpected return in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Frank Grillo had a couple of pretty great turns as Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Solider and Captain America: Civil War, but it seems, or at least seemed, his days in the MCU were numbered. But Grillo recently hinted that there may be some more Crossbones coming our way in the future. Frank Grillo recently spoke with Forbes about his work in the Purge franchise, but they couldn't help discussing his work as Crossbones in the MCU. While talking about it, Grillo revealed that, even though it seemed like his character bit the dust pretty definitively in Civil War, he may be returning to the franchise. Here's what he had to say about it. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Frank Grillo's character Brock Rumlow, who becomes Crossbones, essentially had a building fall on top of him. Following that, he was put back together and became the villain we know as Crossbones. Unfortunately, he was only … [Read more...] about Crossbones to Return in a Future Marvel Movie?
Maybe you have to be a kid to fully grasp the appeal of Ant-Man. At least, that’s the line of argument that Peyton Reed takes when discussing his feature film version of Marvel Comics’ diminutive costumed crimefighter. While adults might roll their eyes at a so-called superhero whose power involves shrinking down to insect-size and communicating with the busy citizens of teeming ant colonies, Reed says that children totally get it. “Kids really respond to shrinking characters,” he tells Film Journal International, speaking on the phone from California. “It’s closer to their perspective of the world. All superhero movies are based around a different version of wish fulfillment, and partly because of his size, Ant-Man taps into the child in everybody in a really great way. When kids are on the floor playing with their action figures, that’s the closest thing they get to being Ant-Man.”Sound like dubious reasoning? Maybe. But this author has … [Read more...] about Little Hero, Big Screen: Peyton Reed and Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man joins Marvel movie colony of crimefighters
He then turned to the nearest Warner Bros. executive, threw his arms out to the side, palms open, shouted “Now what? NOW WHAT?” and did a little, strutting dance. Well, not really.But he does see a future in which Marvel Entertainment would be releasing a new movie quarterly.Feige recently spoke to Badass Digest about how he sees the Marvel universe widening and growing in Phase 3 and beyond, as it incorporates television shows, movies, shorts, and even several Netflix series. I don’t know that we will necessarily say “Okay, we’re now moving strategically to three a year, now we’re moving to four a year.” What I think is more likely – if [knocks on wood-like table] the next group of movies work and people want to see additional stories – we’ll have too many franchises and you can’t do one of each franchise every two or three years. We’d have to move to three a year, but that would have to be a natural move if it … [Read more...] about Kevin Feige Envisions a World in Which We Get Four Marvel Movies a Year
