Dr. Strange Photos Revealed

Dr.Strange2

(PCM) After debuting their new cover photo of actor Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, EW delighted fans with the released of several additional Dr. Strange photos. The highly anticipated film is set for release on November 4, 2016 and will be directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil).

Dr. Strange will star Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange of course, as well as, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, and Mads Mikkelsen in roles that have not yet been revealed.

It was also revealed that the EW photo shoot was the first time that Cumberbatch had really tried on the costume and he used the photo shoot as a way to research his character.

Cumberbatch told EW, “I’m still in the infancy of learning all that. It was like, okay, I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically. I’m thinking, there’s going to be a huge amount of speculation and intrigue over the positioning of that finger as opposed to it being there, or there. And I’m still working on that. We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious. But, then, by the end, it was great. It’s like anything, you just have to experiment.”

About the film:

After his career is destroyed, a brilliant but arrogant surgeon gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil.

Captain America: Civil War Trailer

When the government sets up a governing body to oversee the Avengers, the team splinters into two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Check out the official trailer below!

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016. 

Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.

The Captain America: Civil War Trailer Has Arrived!

Civil-War1

(PCM) Disney has released the first trailer for the highly anticipated upcoming film “Captain America: Civil War” which will serve as the kick-off to Marvel’s Phase 3 slate. The film will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and from the looks of things will pick up right after the event of “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.

We find Steve Rogers leading a new team of Avengers in a continued effort to safeguard humanity. According to the film’s official synopsis: “After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.”

In the trailer we see the riff continue to deepen between Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) as Captain America is coming to the defense of his friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) when the government is coming after him. Along with the other Avengers we also catch our first glimpse of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.

Captain America: Civil War will open in theaters on May 6, 2016.
