Avengers 4 could see the return of dead McU characters

Not content with bringing back virtually every character still breathing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel, it seems that Marvel Studios and the Russos may be throwing a few deceased ones into the mix too.

There’s already been rumours that Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter could feature (although that could also be in Ant-Man and the Wasp) in Avengers 4, and now Robert Downey Jr. has sparked speculation that Frank Grillo’s Brock Rumlow / Crossbones and Maximiliano Hernandez’s Jasper Sitwell could feature in the film, with both actors appearing in a photo shared by Downey at a charity event in Atlanta.

Now, it’s possible that both Grillo and Hernandez were just visiting friends, but Grillo has recently revealed that Marvel has plans for his character, and we already know that Avengers 4 will feature a flashback to the first Avengers movie, so

Evidence Mounts For Crossbones Cameo In Avengers 4

Much like Ant-Man and the Wasp before it, the so-far untitled Avengers 4 is nearing the end of principal photography.

Joe and Anthony Russo’s mystery sequel initially stepped in front of the cameras back in August, when the filmmaking duo was just putting the final touches to Avengers: Infinity War – look for that one to premiere in May of 2018. But now that the finish line is in sight, and rampant fans continue to pore over every Marvel-related set photo on the Internet, Cbm has today uncovered the latest Instagram post from Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), which may well be hiding a story clue in plain sight.

The Phase One Avenger recently hosted a charity event at Atlanta’s Fox Theater, and the guest list was a suitably star-studded affair. Not only did it include Mark Ruffalo (Thor: Ragnarok) and Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson, but there was also room for Frank Grillo,

If You Long For The Days Of Marvel One-Shots, Eric Pearson Has News For You

Once upon a time, the Marvel Cinematic Universe did not rely simply upon post-credit scenes to add content to the fabric that holds its franchise instalments together. It also created short films – known as Marvel One-Shots – that were designed to provide an opportunity for the giant brand to experiment with other, lesser-known characters, while filling the gaps in storytelling that inevitably open up within the confines of such a vast narrative endeavour. These short films became highly anticipated gems, and were included with Blu-ray releases of theatrical movies. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a Marvel One-Shot since 2014, but that may be a situation that’s heading for change.

Eric Pearson is a co-screenwriter (with Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost) for Thor: Ragnarok, which is about to release in cinemas. The movie is his first feature length script, but he’s highly experienced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – having worked his

Marvel Movies Will ‘Inevitably’ Reference TV Shows

Marvel Movies Will ‘Inevitably’ Reference TV Shows
It’s “inevitable”: Marvel movies will ultimately reference the TV shows in the Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed the soon-to-be cross-link during a recent Q&A promoting “Avengers: Age of Ultron’s” home video release.

“I think that’s inevitable at some point as we’re plotting the movies going forward and they’re doing the shows,” Feige said, per IGN.

In addition to ABC’s “Agents of Shield” (Marvel’s first live-action TV series) and “Agent Carter,” the studio has also produced a slew of Netflix series. “Daredevil” premiered last year to rave reviews and “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist” and “The Defenders” are all on the horizon. The studio is also developing an “Agents of Shield” companion series, “Mockingbird.”

The shows’ plots have often directly reflected film storylines, including the introduction of the Inhumans and the appearance of film characters like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury,

‘Sicario’ is a mesmerizing, grueling, and unforgettable thriller

  • SoundOnSight
Sicario

Written by Taylor Sheridan

Directed by Denis Villeneueve

USA, 2015

Tightly wound from the opening frame, Denis Villeneueve’s Sicario opens to the gripping sounds of Jóhann Jóhannsson’s gripping electronic score, as FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) rides in an armored vehicle to an Arizona house linked with drug traffickers. Clad in full combat armor herself, as are her partner Reggie Wayne (Daniel Kaluuya) and the dozens of other agents with them. Like the viewer, Macer doesn’t know what exactly she’s getting herself into, but the foreboding look on her face as she takes deep breaths and tries to relax suggests that she has some idea of the danger lying ahead.

It comes as soon as she enters the house in the form of a brief and brutal shootout, but the worst doesn’t arrive until she and her fellow agents clear what appears to be the most imminent danger.

Film Review: Benicio Del Toro is Never Better in Standout 2015 Thriller ‘Sicario’

  • HollywoodChicago.com
Chicago – Seeing the man behind the curtains in “The Wizard of Oz” really was when so many of us truly understood what “behind the scenes” means. Today, we’re fascinated by FBI and CIA stories because they grant us top-secret security clearance we’ll otherwise never have.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

But “Sicario,” which means hitman in Spanish and co-stars Benicio Del Toro and Emily Blunt, does more than just lift the dirty rug on the Mexican drug war. It poses harrowing moral questions many of us are too nervous to be asked let alone prepared to actually answer.

Emily Blunt as Kate Macer realizes she’s been wasting her time on small-time work that’s not scratching the surface of the dangerous and clandestine cartel world. Given the volunteer opportunity to witness the true underbelly with a different class of law enforcement, she can’t resist. At first we think it’s her curiosity,

‘Sicario’s’ Emily Blunt: ‘I’m Happy to Contribute to the New Wave of Kick Ass Roles for Women’

‘Sicario’s’ Emily Blunt: ‘I’m Happy to Contribute to the New Wave of Kick Ass Roles for Women’
After making its debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May and premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival just three days prior, Lionsgate’s edge-of-your-seat crime thriller “Sicario” had its New York premiere Monday night at the Museum of Modern Art leaving guests speechless and riveted by the suspense and action sequences. The film currently has a 94 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes and the cast promised the reviews are accurate.

“It turned out to be a good film that I’m very proud of. I was just coming off of ‘Everest’ and I almost didn’t do the movie. Thank God I did,” Josh Brolin told Variety on the red carpet prior to the screening. “The result is incredible. Once I read the script and started to get into it, I was like, ‘Wow, this is something that I want to put my time and energy into!’ What

Roger Deakins offers up some of his very best cinematography in “Sicario”

There’s so much talent behind the film Sicario it’s almost scary. You have a cast that includes Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benicio del Toro, along with the supremely talented director Denis Villeneuve at the helm and the legendary Dp Roger Deakins handling the cinematography. I’ve seen this movie twice in advance of its limited release this weekend and can vouch for it being excellent. In fact, it’s currently one of the ten best things that I’ve seen so far this year. 2015 still has a long way to go, but this is a memorable flick, to say the least, in no small part to the always excellent work from the legend that is Deakins. He’s yet to win an Oscar and folks, that’s a crime. Working again with Villeneuve after Prisoners, he’s got another shot to be in the running. The film

Sicario (2015) Movie Trailer: Emily Blunt Battles Mexican Drug Cartels

  • Film-Book
Sicario Trailer. Denis Villeneuve‘s Sicario (2015) movie trailer stars Jon Bernthal, Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, and Victor Garber. Sicario‘s plot synopsis: “In Mexico, Sicario means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by an elite government task force official to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past, the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.”

This looks like an exciting drama. I immediately thought of The Bridge and Traffic when I began watching this trailer. Emily Blunt is center stage and she owns ever scene. Her character seems to have gotten over her head with her “allies.”

Sicario also stars Jeffrey Donovan, Raoul Trujillo, Daniel Kaluuya, Maximiliano Hernández, Sarah Minnich, Lora Martinez-Cunningham, Alan D. Purwin,

25 deleted scenes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies

  • Den of Geek
Even with as much planning as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, some scenes end up on the editing room floor…

This film has spoilers for every film in the Marvel cinematic universe.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe… if you’ve just clicked into this article, it’s likely that you need little reminding of how much it changed the landscape of Hollywood. But that won’t stop us recapping for continuity’s sake. Heck, it’s what Kevin Feige would want.

It began in 2008, then, with the landmark casting of Robert Downey Jnr as Tony Stark. It’s sometimes hard to remember how much a risk that was at the time, but heck did it pay off. The movie, directed by Jon Favreau, was strong, and a huge hit. And the notion of a post-credits sting was introduced. And it was a big one, too – Samuel L Jackson namedropping the Avengers Initiative.

With the one-two punch of Prisoners and Enemy, Denis Villeneuve (pictured above) delivered two of the most tense, visually engrossing thrillers in years, and there’s no reason to suspect that the director’s next project, drug runner drama Sicario, will break his winning streak. Lionsgate has set a September 18th limited release for the pic, with plans to expand into more theaters a week later.

Emily Blunt stars as an idealistic FBI agent who gets in over her head when she is introduced to the shadowy world of international drug trafficking by two members of a government task force (Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro). Enlisted in a daring plot to take down a Mexican cartel boss, the agent must rely on her wits and training to stay alive, even as the specifics of the mission lead her to question what ethical and moral lines she’s willing to
