In case you have been living under a rock, Marvel Comics has been heavily promoting their Civil War II comic event. This is the follow up to the original Civil War crossover which Captain America: Civil War is loosely based off of. This time, instead of Iron Man Vs Captain America, it is Iron Man vs Captain Marvel. Instead of a Superhuman Registration Act, the conflict is over a new super-powered Inhuman who has the ability to predict the future (including future crimes). Captain Marvel wants the new Inhuman to be able to profile future crimes and attacks before they happen, and Iron Man against it with the argument that people shouldn’t be punished before a crime is committed. Think Minority Report, but with Marvel’s superheroes.

Invincible Iron Man #9 is out and there’s a new Iron Man… I mean Iron Woman… wait, she hasn’t chosen a name yet, apparently she’s working on it. That’s right, Marvel is once again changing who’s in the suit, as they have done numerous times when Tony Stark has been injured, disappeared, or just to drunk to suit up. This time around though, Bendis, Deodato, and Martin are introducing a new character, not one of Stark’s established friends who suit up when needed. Want to get a look at the new Iron… person?

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.
After 3 Iron Man movies, 2 Avengers blockbusters, the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, and Marvel’s phase 3 Infinity War it has seemed like Robert Downey Jr. has a full enough plate. Downey has stated in multiple interviews over the past few years that an Iron Man 4 was not in the works – and honestly after the disappointing Iron Man 3 who could blame him? However, it seems the tide may have turned and we just may have a fourth solo film ahead for one of Marvel’s most beloved icons. (more…)
It was just last week when Robert Downey Jr. coyly answered Jimmy Kimmel‘s question about Spider-Man: Homecoming saying, “Perhaps I will, we don’t have a contract yet.” Well, THR is now reporting that RDJ has completed talks and has signed the dotted line to appear alongside Tom Holland as he makes his first solo Spider-Man movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Holy Hippity Hoppity Robert Downey Jr. Bunny-Man! When Downey first came onto Omaze last year, he offered fans the BEST DAY EVER by donating to an organization in need.

Now Downey’s back and ready to give fans a chance to win another great VIP experience in conjunction with the upcoming release of Captain America: Civil War. Check out the video after jump. (more…)
Captain America: Civil War comes out late this spring (May 6), and pits everyone’s favorite boy scout, Steve Rogers, better known as Captain America, against Tony Stark’s Iron Man. But while it is great to see the man in the red suit in ensemble films, nothing quite beats seeing him flying solo. Robert Downey Jr. has gone back and forth about the potential for a fourth Iron Man. He first said he’d hang up the suit when he turned 50, but he’s going on 51 now, and is presumably still contracted for Avengers: Infinity War. But what about the rumored Iron Man 4? Is that going to happen? Will RDJ play Tony Stark? In an interview with USA Today, he answered those questions…kind of. (more…)
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…
It’s hard to write these posts when you’re still fan-boying over the thing you’re trying to write about.

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.
