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.
The International trailer for Captain America: Civil War has hit the Internet and spells out the movie’s plot line fairly clearly. There’s sure to be more surprises once it hits the big screen, but Marvel is taking no chances on letting people know the stakes involved and the possible changes to long-standing relationships. The Russo Brothers, Anthony and Joseph, look set to continue to wow Marvel audiences with their takes on some fantastic Captain America story lines. Take a look. (more…)
By now we’ve all seen the picture of Chris Evans in the Captain America suit, but the Entertainment Weekly it graced the cover of also was accompanied with an article about the film as well and gave us some pretty juicy details. So it turns out Cap’s got a lot to carry on those broad shoulder of his. Being the last Marvel movie to be released before Joss Wheden takes the reigns and gives us our Avengers movie, it has to give a good lead-in. Captain America will do so by using the frozen in ice storyline that most know.
Also, the EW article revealed that the film might not be called Captain America when it gets released internationally. Instead it may be called The First Avenger. Supposedly this is being done in order to attract those who may not be so fond of America (Wait, there are people out there that aren’t fond America?!).
The article also informs us that the pajama-looking orignal comstume with the wings on the helmet will be featured in the film as well. Evans however will later approach Howard Stark and Stark Industries, who will rectify this atrocity and make Captain America the uniform that will be featured in the majority of the film.
About the role, Evans reveals,
“At the time, I remember telling a buddy of mine, ‘If the movie bombs, I’m f—-ed. If the movie hits, I’m f—-ed!'” After declining the part three times, Evans took a meeting with Marvel execs and Johnston and was dazzled by their plans for the movie. He still felt wary about suiting up for Captain America — but then he had an epiphany. “I was just scared,” he says. “I realized my whole decision making process was fear based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear.'” Evans signed a six-picture deal with Marvel to play the character, and he has no regrets: “I can’t believe was almost too chicken to play Captain America.”
That stament clearly demonstrates why Evans is a perfect fit to play Steve Rogers, our scrawny soldier turned super hero (thanks to government experiment) Captain America. What do you guys think about all of the new details? Are you more excited for the movie now?? Check more photos from the entertainment Weekly Captain America Spread after the Jump! Captain America directed by Joe Johnston and feat. Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Stanley Tucci and Hayley Atwell is due out July 22nd.
