When audiences first saw Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) appear in promotional material for the upcoming superhero ensemble "Captain America: Civil War," many wondered what the Avenger was doing fighting alongside Captain America (Chris Evans) when he was supposed to have already retired.
At the end of 2014's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," Clint Barton/Hawkeye decided that it was time to hang up his bow and arrows and spend more quality time with his family in their picture-perfect rural farm. However, just a couple of years later, Barton is again heading off to battle.
During the recent European premiere of "Captain America: Civil War" in London, Renner explained Hawkeye's change of heart. more >>
While Tom Holland thinks that Tobey Maguire's and Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man portrayals were "brilliant," the new Spidey also said that he tried not to copy what they did in their own "Spider-Man" films. Instead, he set out to portray a younger Peter Parker/Spider-Man, whose reaction to the Avengers is something fans are sure to enjoy.
Holland, who makes his debut as the swinging Marvel superhero in next month's "Captain America: Civil War," takes over the role from Andrew Garfield, who appeared in the Marc Webb-helmed "The Amazing Spider-Man" films and who, in turn, took over the role from Tobey Maguire, who starred in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" film series in the early 2000s.
While the task of taking on such an iconic role must have been a pretty heavy one, the fact that "Civil War" is currently receiving positive acclaim must have taken some of the weight off Holland's shoulders. more >>
The Oliver Stone film about NSA leaker Edward Snowden is finally hitting cinemas in September of this year after a couple of delays. But before moviegoers get the real deal, film studio Open Road released a new trailer.
The story revolves around Snowden, who will be played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his story after releasing to the public secret NSA documents, which would later be known as "The Snowden Files." Stone directed the film and co-wrote the screenplay.
The film isn't really a direct account of Snowden's life after the leak, but more of a re-telling of two books about him. Therefore, it is more of a film adaptation of Luke Harding's "The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man" and "Time of the Octopus" by Anatoly Kucherena, who had first-hand information about Snowden's experience because he represented him as a lawyer. more >>
In "Suicide Squad," actress Karen Fukuhara plays the role of swordswoman Katana, one of the members of the Task Force X team created by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and led by Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman).
In a chat with ComicBook.com during the Big Picture presentation by Warner Brothers at the CinemaCon in Las Vegas earlier this month, Fukuhara spoke about doing her own stunts for the upcoming antihero ensemble. According to the actress, she learned all her choreography during pre-production for the film and the muscle memory she gained from her preparation enabled her to do all but one of her stunts as Katana.
In the interview, Fukuhara praised her stunt double and stunt coordinator and said: "I was able to do all of my own stunts except for one dive role, but all of my stunts. So, yeah, I got to run on top of a car, I did all of my sword work…" more >>
