Superhero ensemble "Captain America: Civil War" may appear to be superpacked with MCU characters but, if its filmmakers' previous comment is to be believed, "Avengers: Infinity War" will feature a cast list that will dwarf that of "Civil War."
Earlier this year, Joe and Anthony Russo, the brothers behind the upcoming "Civil War" and the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War," fuelled fan speculation when they said that "Infinity War" will have 67 Marvel characters. While the Russo brothers have already clarified that statement, telling Collider in January that they were "being figurative" when they said that number, "Infinity War" writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have also now spoken up about the issue.
During a recent chat with The Huffington Post, the writers explained that while there could indeed be 67 characters in the film, as that is the number of characters that are available in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it doesn't necessarily mean that there will be 67 characters nor that they will all have major roles. more >>
Award-winning actress Tilda Swinton has responded to the backlash surrounding her character in the upcoming Marvel superhero film "Doctor Strange."
Months before its release, the highly anticipated Benedict Cumberbatch-starrer has already received praise for its casting of the "The Imitation Game" lead actor as the Marvel film's titular superhero/neurosurgeon and for the re-characterization of the film's Ancient One, the mystic who leads Doctor Strange into discovering and learning the mystic arts.
But while many have commended the casting of a female in the role of what was a male character in the source material, others have reacted to what they deemed to be the whitewashing of what was supposed to be an Asian character. more >>
After the success of the Ridley Scott sci-fi film "The Martian," Matt Damon is again hoping to be part of another blockbuster this year, making his comeback as Jason Bourne. It's almost a decade when moviegoers saw him play the Robert Ludlum fictional character in "The Bourne Ultimatum" back in 2007, and based on the previous earnings of that film, this one's going to be another hit in the making.
The new movie, with the working title "Jason Bourne" confirms earlier rumors of Damon's return to the film franchise. To recall, the last time a Bourne film was made, it was Jeremy Renner who played the lead role, in the 2012 film called "The Bourne Legacy."
This will be the fifth installment of the franchise, and just like the previous ones, it revolves around the struggles of a super spy character. The first previews of the film reveal that the Central Intelligence Agency has been hacked and that the implications can be bigger than that of Snowden. In the Official Trailer, Bourne (Damon) is seen fighting with several men, doing a bike chase with Nicky Parsons (played by Julia Stiles), and one incredible scene where there is a massive car pileup in Las Vegas. more >>

Even though there are still many months to go before "Suicide Squad" hits theaters, much has already been said about actor/singer Jared Leto's portrayal of iconic comic book villain The Joker.
Leto, a method actor, had the unenviable task of taking over the role from some truly legendary actors. These include Heath Ledger, who won a posthumous Oscar for his take on The Joker in Chris Nolan's "The Dark Knight" (2008) and Jack Nicholson, another Academy Award winner, who played a dark version of the villain in "Batman" (1989). Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the "Star Wars" film franchise, voiced The Joker for television and video games for two decades.
Leto was reportedly so focused on his portrayal of the mentally unhinged villain that he would stay in character throughout filming, even when he wasn't in front of the camera. It has also been said that people on set kept their distance from the actor, who had maintained his character's menacing persona throughout the shoot. more >>

But she actually isn't the oldest to be named by the magazine. Last year, 50-year old Sandra Bullock got the honor. more >>
