Ever since the first Iron Man movie, Paul Bettany’s role in the Avengers film series has gotten bigger and bigger, a trend that should continue in Avengers: Infinity War. He’s very happy with the way his character has grown over the course of the movies, and he told us there’s only one thing that could make him happier.

While Bettany’s agent gets to work on that, we’ll wait for Avengers: Infinity War, which opens on May 4, 2018
Stan Lee’s name is synonymous with comic books. As the driving force behind the Marvel library, he created such legendary superheroes as Spider-Man, Hulk, X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man and Thor. Some of the characters were created more than 50 years ago, yet they are still as big as ever. (Just look at the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming at the box office this month! While Lee doesn’t give much thought to the longevity of the characters he’s created, he’s happy — and quite surprised — that they’ve endured the test of time.

Along with Spider-Man: Homecoming, you’ll see more of Lee’s creations on the big screen in coming months as Thor: Ragnarok opens on November 3 and Avengers: Infinity War comes out next May 4.
With Deadpool around the corner, the red suit wearing “merc with the mouth” (Ryan Reynolds) is understandably getting most of the Marvel attention. The Super Bowl TV spot for Captain America: Civil War is giving Deadpool a run for its money, as pitting superheroes against each other, with both sides believing they are supporting the right cause, should make for compelling viewing.
Detractors of the trailer believe Captain America: Civil War gives off an entirely Avengers vibe, and although several of “Earth’s mightiest heroes” are featured in the clip, there is no world-destroying villain like Ultron (James Spader) in the mix. Instead, the story centers on the battle from Avengers’ freedom, with Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) wanting more government interference with the squad. Captain America (Chris Evans) sees things entirely different, and now the latest iteration of the Avengers is set to fight Iron Man’s assembled crew (War Machine, The Vision, Black Panther, Black Widow).
If you haven’t seen the clip, it’s definitely a must watch, especially if you want a bit more Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) in your life. Check out the TV spot below and tell us what you think!
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens nationwide May 6, 2016.
For the fifth time in his career, Robert Downey Jr. will reprise the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Working with director Joss Whedon and his fellow Avenger cast mates is a real joy for Downey Jr., who told us that he has a great relationship with them both on and off the set.(Click on the media bar below to hear Robert Downey Jr.)
Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters May 1, 2015
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be the third chapter in Marvel Studios’ cinematic universe Phase 2. After having the stage set by last May’s Iron Man 3 and this November’s Thor: The Dark World (and with a handy assist from Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on ABC), Winter Soldier finds the stalwart Captain Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) now fully initiated as a SHIELD operative and facing down a menace from his past which threatens the fate of the country; maybe even the world. (because, let’s be honest — it always threatens the world)
Along with some new threads, new allies like the Falcon (played by Runner Runner’sAnthony Mackie), and a new Washington, DC address, it appears Cap will also get some new moves. At a red carpet event for his new film, Evans spoke about the training Cap’s received since helping fight off an alien invasion in Marvel’s The Avengers.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier also stars Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is scheduled to hit theaters April 4, 2014.
