‘Captain America 3′ confirmed for May 6, 2016

- April 7th, 2014

Turns out that big superhero battle between Marvel and DC is going to happen after all.

Marvel has confirmed that it plans to release a sequel to Captain America: The Winter Soldier on May 6, 2016, pitting it against Warner Bros.’ untitled Batman-Superman film.

This follows The Winter Soldier’s record-breaking weekend at the box office in the U.S. and Canada.

Marvel staked its claim to the date last summer by earmarking it for an untitled superhero feature. Conventional thinking at the time seemed to be that it was either going to be Thor 3, Captain America 3 or the long-rumoured Doctor Strange. When DC moved its Batman vs. Superman film from July 2015 to May 6, 2016, fanboys and girls were thinking that Marvel would have to back off. Marvel studio boss Kevin Feige was steadfast that his company wasn’t going to back off the date, though, during interviews for The Winter Soldier.

Marvel announced the news on its website.

Following the record-breaking premiere of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier this past weekend, the First Avenger will jump into his next big screen solo adventure in just a little more than two years on May 6, 2016!

Before the untitled Captain America 3 hits theaters, though, fans can next see Cap when he joins the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes once more in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015!

Having watched The Winter Soldier, I can say that it is easily one of Marvel’s top three films. It also does a fine job setting up future Marvel films, including Doctor Strange and Avengers: Age of Ultron. So I’m confident that it will be able to hold its own against Batman-Superman. All I know right now is: May 6, 2016, will be a busy movie weekend for me.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in theatres now.

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ and ‘Amazing Spider Man 2′ debut Super Bowl teasers

- January 31st, 2014

Marvel and Sony have dropped new Super Bowl teaser trailers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ahead of full ads that will air Sunday night.

The new 40-second spot for Spider-Man shows plenty of action, including missiles, a spectacular mid-air sequence with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), Rhino (Paul Giamatti) donning his high-tech armor suit and a glimpse of the Green Goblin. It’s a lot to cram in, so you’ll want to watch it twice.

“You wanted to be the hero… now you’re going to pay the price,” Electro (Jamie Foxx) says taunting the webslinger. It looks like he’s going to be a solid villain.

Marvel’s Captain America teaser is only 16 seconds, but it too packs a punch. We get a fresh look at the film’s villains, including the titular Winter Soldier. There’s also a brief scene with Black Widow escaping an explosion and Falcon getting ready for takeoff.

Both ads will air in full during Sunday night’s Super Bowl. Go Broncos!

Marvel releases comic book prequel to ‘Captain America 2′

- January 29th, 2014

Can’t wait for Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Well, you’re in luck.

Marvel has announced it is releasing a digital prequel comic ahead of the film’s theatrical release April 4. The title’s a mouthful – Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier Infinite Comic – but the new book promises to introduce characters and plot points from the upcoming sequel.

“If you’re a Captain America fan, this all-new adventure is rare sneak peek into the movie we still have to wait over two months for,” editor Bill Rosemann tells The Hollywood Reporter. “First, you get to see Cap rock his new stealth suit. Also, you’ll see one of his first missions working side-by-side not only with his Avengers teammate Black Widow, but also with Brock Rumlow, whose name should ring some bells.”

The comic will be written by Peter David (The Incredible Hulk) and drawn by Rock-He Kim.

In related Captain America news, it seems that Marvel is so pleased with rookie directors Anthony and Joe Russo that they are already in early talks to bring the pair back for Captain America 3.

No release date has been skedded for the third instalment, but Chris Evans is scheduled to return. The film will most likely be part of Marvel’s Phase 3.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Infinite Comic is available via Marvel’s website and ComiXology.
