We are just days away from seeing Team Iron Man face off against Team Captain America in Marvel’s newest blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War. The stakes are high for both sides as a Superhero Registration Act threatens to tear the Avengers apart. Team Iron Man believes that registering their identities with the government will help protect innocent civilians from collateral damage. Meanwhile, Team Captain America thinks that such an act would do more harm than good. Fans have been choosing a side for months, and both teams are ready to go head-to-head. However, with all of this talk of “which side are you on,” there is one man who has yet to align with one of these teams. We are of course talking about the head honch of Marvel himself, Stan freaking Lee.

War is coming for the MCU, ready to kick off Phase Three and all the cosmic hullabaloo that entails. Civil War is definitely going to be one of the most ambitious Marvel superhero films we’ve seen so far and Disney are doing their best to keep the hype-train rolling until May 6th, when we can finally get to enjoy the cinematic brawl. And judging by the recently revealed footage that was shown during the MTV Music Awards, this is going to be one heck of a ride…

Doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well. Spider-Man represents Queens, Captain America was raised out in Brooklyn. You know who’s really doin’ it well? Marvel Studios. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is now comprised of twelve movies that have made a combined total of over $9 billion dollars. With that kind of money you could send almost a quarter of a million kids to college! Or you could run about 9 presidential campaigns. Whichever. The point is that Marvel has been outpacing and outperforming every other superhero franchise for almost a decade now. This article will look at why Disney-owned Marvel releases such exemplary material and, in the spirit of holding them accountable, what things Marvel could improve upon. SPOILER WARNING on… most superhero movies. If a superhero movie is brought up, there’s a good chance some sort of spoiler will follow.

Civil War’s latest trailer made huge waves in the global nerd scene. Coupled with Robert Downey Junior‘s recent consideration of giving up his iconic Iron Man role means that Captain America: Civil War needs to give us the biggest, meanest, most over-the-top MCU pow-wow yet. The cast and creative team seem to be taking all this performance anxiety rather well, all things considered, what with their recent teases and some of the behind-the-scenes hijinks that we’ve been hearing about…

Civil War is the big MCU punch-out that’s been hyped to the Moon and back and we can get why, especially considering the wider implications this will have on the larger timeline. While some fans had their doubts, test audiences were particularly hyped after the first screenings and now, Sebastian Stan, the Winter Soldier, had some pretty great first impressions to lay down on us…

We’re drawing closer and closer to Marvel’s next big movie release: known colloquially to the fans as Avengers 2.5 due to the copious amounts of heroes being featured, Captain America: Civil War is sure to be action-packed from start to finish.  Fans everywhere are already “picking sides” between Team Captain America and Team Iron Man, and previous trailers and promotional images have shown potential viewers which heroes are choosing to align themselves in either corner (no word yet on the preferred affiliations of Baby Groot, however).  While we are rumored to get a new Civil War trailer this week, Marvel has already hit us with new stuff to fawn over: a deluge of new character posters featuring the characters who are affiliating with Cap himself.

Joss-Whedon-Avengers

When a man turns 75, that’s usually a sign that it is time to start slowing down and taking things a bit easier. They are probably retired, and looking forward to a nice, quiet life. Not so if you happen to be one of the great, enduring symbols of America, and one of Marvel’s flagship properties as Captain America is set to blow out a whopping 75 candles on his birthday cake this year, and what better way to ring in the event than bringing back one of Geekdom’s most beloved comic enthusiasts, Joss Whedon, to pen an all new story.

From the moment he stepped into frame as Lt. Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes in Iron Man 2 and told Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark (and essentially moviegoers, as well) “It’s me and I’m here, so get over it and move on,” fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been 100% behind Don Cheadle as War Machine. He was great in Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3, and the worst part of his performance in Avengers: Age of Ultron is that it was all too brief. Now, fans are looking forward to seeing him in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War and, according to Cheadle, Rhodey plays a “pivotal” role in the film. You can find out what he had to say recently at the Sundance Film Festival, but first a word of caution: While this article doesn’t contain any confirmed spoilers from Civil War, those wishing to remain completely oblivious to the film until they see it should stop reading now.
