Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) - News Poster


Cinema’s Damaged Heroine

Sarah Myles on cinema’s damaged heroine…


As a word, it has become synonymous with determined women in movies. Why? Because that is how critics routinely describe them.

“Black Widow gets extra bad-ass in this Avengers 2 trailer,” said Rob Bricken of i09.

In Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron plays “a career badass who enjoys both the job and the perks with equal enthusiasm,” according to J. Hurtado of Screen Anarchy.

Kaya Payseno of Bust tells us that “Badass women star in a feminist western,” while reviewing The Keeping Room.

According to Wendy Ide of The Guardian, Wonder Woman is “A gloriously badass breath of fresh air.”

From whence does this strangely limited vocabulary come? How have we reached a point where a critic can use the word ‘badass,’ and we almost all picture exactly the same thing: a mostly solitary woman, in figure hugging/revealing costumes, scowling and being violent?

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Could Be Marvel Studios’ First Romantic Comedy

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Could Be Marvel Studios’ First Romantic Comedy
“Superhero fatigue” is a term that’s been on the tip of everyone’s tongues for the past decade, but for the most part, Marvel has managed to avoid that condemnation. Why? Because the comic book studio has put a genre twist on their standard formula for nearly every film: Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a political thriller, Guardians of the […]

Ant-Man and the Wasp will be Marvel’s first romantic comedy

Marvel Studios has made a conscious effort to vary its superhero movies, dipping its toes into the genres of political thriller (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), space opera (Guardians of the Galaxy) and high school coming-of-age comedy (Spider-Man: Homecoming).

The first Ant-Man was billed as a heist movie, and now it seems that Marvel and director Peyton Reed are shifting gears for the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp with the studio’s first romantic comedy.

According to Kinometro, a presentation was held by Marvel at the Kinorynok event in Russia, which included a new trailer for Black Panther, as well as a promo video for Ant-Man and the Wasp. And it was during the latter where the project was introduced as “the first rom-com from Marvel”.

Sebastian Stan Teases Steve Rogers Becoming Nomad In Avengers: Infinity War

We haven’t seen any footage of Avengers: Infinity War just yet (well, at least not officially), but we already know that Steve Rogers’ character will be in a very different place from when we last saw him. Following on from giving up his shield and becoming a fugitive in Captain America: Civil War, Chris Evans’ First Avenger has likely stepped away from the mantle of Captain America in the team-up film. Just look at the promo images we’ve seen so far – he’s even got himself a beard.

So, Cap may be gone, but will Steve pick up a new superhero alias instead? His Infinity War co-star Sebastian Stan seems to think so. When signing a Captain America: The Winter Soldier poster for a young fan, Stan – who plays Bucky Barnes in the McU – added an unexpected extra detail alongside his autograph. As you can see, he squiggled

Avengers: Infinity War, and the story threads you need to know

Rob Leane Nov 20, 2017

Earth's Mightiest Heroes will finally take on the big baddie Thanos next year. Here's everything you need to know...

This article contains spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok, and various McU movies before it.

Arriving in April next year, Avengers: Infinity War is set to be the culmination of everything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have written the script, with Joe Russo and Anthony Russo handling the direction. Those four chaps first collaborated on the grounded-by-Marvel-standards espionage flick Captain America: The Winter Soldier, before expanding their operation significantly for its superhero slugfest sequel Captain America: Civil War.

With Infinity War, they are working with an even bigger stable of heroes. The film’s official poster shows – deep breath! - Robert Downey Jnr’s Iron Man, Chris EvansCaptain America, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor,

Rotten Tomatoes Reveals The 50 Best Superhero Films Of All-Time

Superheroes: fictional characters doing impossible things in implausible costumes. Why is society so fascinated by them, though?

Well, for one, they inspire us, reassure us, and certainly entertain us. They also provide a platform for storytelling that’s epic in scale – often allowing for sweeping sci-fi or historical drama, alongside intimate tales of relationships and familial bonds. As such, it’s hardly surprising that the world of film adopts – and occasionally spawns – so many of these characters as its own.

The potential for these crusaders to draw in audiences has been explored and expanded further than anyone could have imagined back when Superman And The Mole-Men became the first superhero movie to hit cinemas in 1951. Since then, filmmakers have continually mined the realms of comic books, graphic novels, animation, TV, and even conceived their own original creations, all in search of that most elusive of achievements: A good superhero flick.

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,

Is Thor: Ragnarok the best Marvel movie ever?

Anghus Houvouras on whether Thor: Ragnarok is the best Marvel movie ever…


There you go! Nice, succinct, spoiler-free and to the point. I suppose there are those who want more detail, so allow me to elaborate. Spoilers ahead my friends.

Thor: Ragnarok Is The Best Marvel Movie. Better than Iron Man. Better than The Avengers. Better than Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Better than Guardians of the Galaxy. After four or five years of being completely ambivalent about Marvel Studios and their ridiculously similar, formulaic content I found myself blasted out of the back of the theater at the awesomeness of the third Thor movie.

How the hell did this happen? Let’s break it down.

It’s the most Comic Book movie since Raimi’s Spider-Man 2.

One of my biggest gripes about Marvel over the past few years is their attempts at bringing their larger than life

That places it in seventh position in the Marvel Cinematic Universe preview chart (see below), just behind Spider-Man: Homecoming, which debuted to $15.4m earlier this year. Spidey went on to gross $117m for the weekend, so the God of Thunder should be there-or-there-abouts when the dust settles on Monday.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’: What Does the Ending Mean for the McU?

Spoilers ahead for Thor: Ragnarok. Before Thor: Ragnarok headed into production, there were rumors that it would be the biggest shakeup to the McU since Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a movie that disbanded S.H.I.E.L.D. and one of the few instances of the films actually affect what happens on a Marvel TV show. While Thor: Ragnarok doesn’t quite reach the major shifts created by Winter Soldier, it still makes some fairly impressive moves. Right off the bat, the biggest surprise is that Thor loses an eye.

Crossbones Spotted On Avengers 4 Set

As evidenced by the steady stream of set photos, Atlanta is still playing host to Avengers 4, Marvel’s unnamed sequel currently on course for a release in 2019.

Nipping at the heels of Infinity War, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have now switched gears to orchestrate the second, conclusive chapter in their two-part epic, which presumably pits Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against Thanos for the final time in May of 2019. So far, most of the titular heroes have been confirmed to be appearing in the superhero extravaganza, but today, we’re hearing that someone rather unexpected may be involved, too: Crossbones.

Having been originally introduced simply as Brock Rumlow, a sleeper agent of Hydra, in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he ironically saw his screentime reduced when he finally emerged as a full-blown Crossbones two years later in Civil War. And, of course, he met his demise in the opening salvo.

Thor's Long Hair Returns in Avengers 4 Set Video and Photos

Thor's Long Hair Returns in Avengers 4 Set Video and Photos
Fans can see the mighty Asgardian Thor (Chris Hemsworth) sporting a new short-hair look in this weekend's Thor: Ragnarok, but new photos from the Atlanta set of Avengers 4 confirm that Thor has grown out his hair once again. The actor was seen on the set alongside Robert Downey Jr., who is wearing a t-shirt some fans might recognize that may indicate the production is filming a flashback scene of some sort, although it could also just be a very large coincidence. There are also some intriguing shots of Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who is seen being restrained in a manner similar to Hannibal Lecter.

The photos were taken yesterday on the Atlanta set, with Chris Hemsworth seen chatting alongside Robert Downey Jr., who some fans have already noticed is wearing the same Black Sabbath t-shirt from an iconic scene in 2012's The Avengers, where Tony Stark confronts Loki, who is waiting in Avengers Tower for him.

Leaked Avengers 4 Set Photos Point To A S.H.I.E.L.D. Resurgence

Both Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) have been tipped to appear in the so-far untitled Avengers 4, but can we expect a S.H.I.E.L.D. resurgence, too?

The Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division was essentially dismantled soon after Captain America: The Winter Soldier three years ago, while Nick Fury hasn’t been involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Age of Ultron.

That all changes with the release of Captain Marvel in 2019 though, when Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s spinoff will seemingly set Jackson opposite Brie Larson, and effectively complete their mini Skull Island reunion. And after that? Well, rumors of Slj’s involvement in Avengers 4 continue to simmer, and this new batch of set photos only add fuel to the fire. First unearthed by Cosmic Book News, one tweet mentions that “S.H.I.E.L.D. agents” have been spotted in Atlanta.
