Daniel Bruhl Signs on for ‘Captain America: Civil War’ 0
While the name might not sound familiar, Daniel Bruhl has had his share of the spotlight most notably in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Inglorious Bastards’ and most recently in Ron Howard’s ‘Rush’ alongside Chris Helmsworth star of Marvel’s Thor. Daniel received praise for both of his breakout roles and has now signed for ‘Captain America: Civil War’ in a yet to be announced role. Latino Review reports that he will not be playing the main villain in the upcoming ‘Civil War’, but might in fact be the main antagonist to Stephen Strange in ‘Doctor Strange’.

Captain America - The Falcon Movie Poster 0
By now we are sure most have seen the trailers that are out there for the Winter Soldier. The new chapter of the Captain America franchise by Marvel Studios. You have seen them hinting at the possible demise of Nick Fury. You have also seen the role that Robert Redford will be playing and we are certain you have your suspicions of who he will turn out to be, right? We have also seen the appearance of Bucky with his metal arm and know this is what happened to him when he fell to what we thought was his death from the train in the last Captain America movie. The bigger question is who is Falcon and will he be portrayed in the movie as a better side kick than the Iron Patriot was in Iron Man. Let us know what you think about how the Falcon will play out in Captain America The Winter Soldier. Hope to see you at the movies!
Thor The Dark World 0
Who is not anticipating this Movie? At this point we are hoping that if Marvel is going to do an action movie and a love story they are going to get it right before we move into the next collection of Marvel Movies slated for 2014. This one may be the one that has the winning formula that will please the audiences and hopefully the hard core fan who has been, let's say a little more than disturbed about the last few movies, where a few too many liberties were taken from the original essence of how the hard core fan believed things should have gone. Anyway we digress the point of this is Thor and the new trailer that seems to have received a positive reaction for those we have spoken with that have seen it. Here's to hoping that the year ends on a positive Movie note with audiences pleased everywhere!

Avengers Rumours Might Not Be True 0
Last week we reported that Marvel was battling with Avengers actors. Rumour had it that Marvel wouldn't fork over more cash, and this might result in some original Avenger folk not returning to the next installment of the film. Mark Ruffalo seems to think differently.
A member of the press that asked him point blank whether or not the rumours were true recently cornered Ruffalo. Ruffalo had this to say: "I haven't caught wind of any of that. I was surprised to hear it, because I don't even think anyone's really started negotiating yet...but sometimes actors are the last people to know what's going on."
Very true, Mark, very true. Often, agents and companies act on behalf of actors. So, it might be that Marvel is arguing over salaries with agents and representatives of various actors, and not actually with the actors themselves.
Is Marvel really arguing over money with the stars from the Avengers? It's hard to say for sure, but it's now clear that Mark Ruffalo doesn't know about the scuffle. He also stated that he does plan to come back as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, so not to worry if you're a hulk fan.
What about the rest of The Avengers cast? Who knows; but it will all come to the surface soon enough.
On another note: who'd like to see Edward Norton come back as 'The Hulk?' Norton was quickly replaced by Ruffalo, though some Hulk fans still prefer the job that Norton did.
It makes you wonder, though, if Ruffalo easily replaced Norton as 'The Hulk,' how easy would it be to replace RDJ as Iron Man? It might seem impossible now, but just look at how most people have already forgotten that Norton played the part!
Will IM3's 'Harley' Become ‘Nova’? 0
Remember when we told you that the 10-year old kid in Iron Man 3 (Harley) had something up his sleeve (other than a potato gun)? Well, that kid (Ty Simpkin) has been talking to press -- never advisable, Ty.
What he had to say (in an over-zealous kid kind of way) is this:
"Have you ever heard about the comic book Nova? We read an article about how Harley might be my middle name, and Keener could be my mom’s maiden name, and my dad could have joined the Nova Corps.
Then my real name’s Richie and I actually figure it out because my mom gets killed by an alien, then I figure out that my dad joined the Nova Corps, and I join the Nova Corps and I become Nova."
You have to love how this quote reads all kid-like, right? Well, Ty might be onto something. Maybe 'Harley' is his middle name, and maybe his mom is actually killed by an alien, and maybe he does become Nova. Maybe. Or, maybe he's just an excited kid that's been reading too much of his own press (again, not advisable, Ty!).
But, you also have to think about this: studios don't like it when actors (no matter how old they are) talk. Most of the time, actors have to check with a whole bunch of people before making any kind of public statement. Are we saying that Ty was put up to the task of letting the public know about his future role as Nova? Not necessarily.
We are saying this, though: you haven't seen the last of Harley. Not by a long shot. Now that he's officially been set up with his own Stark Studio (courtesy of his well-off mentor, Tony Stark), Harley has nowhere to go but up. Thoughts?
Has Marvel Lost Its Marbles? 0
Can we talk for a minute about the RDJ/Marvel dispute? There are rumors flying around that RDJ might not return to reprise his role as Iron Man in the next installment of the film due to contract differences. Really? Is there any debate here? Can anyone else step into RDJ's shoes? It's not likely.
But it is likely that Marvel (now owned by Disney) will take the Iron Man franchise as far as possible. Disney reps have been quoted as stating that the company is seeking to push Iron Man to Harry Potter proportions. In short: Disney isn't going to stop producing Iron Man films with or without RDJ.
It's amazing to think that Disney purchased Marvel for $4 billion, and the Iron Man franchise alone has already grossed $3 billion including 'The Avengers' - which might not include any of the former cast if Disney keeps haggling over contracts (we wrote about this yesterday here).
Analysts estimate that Disney could lose around 9% of its total earnings if RDJ walks away. That’s a lot of money when you’re talking billions. Does Disney have any real negotiating power here?
Here's a Marvel/Disney wake up call: Iron Man cannot exist without RDJ! RDJ is Tony Stark. The part was practically made for him.
Has Marvel lost its marbles? Maybe; or, maybe Marvel is willing to take the risk. Just look at the number of James Bonds we’ve gone through in the past. Is RDJ replaceable?
Comments? Thoughts? Can you really see someone else playing the part of Tony Stark? Heck, can you see someone else stepping into Pepper Pott's shoes (heels)?
