Join Oli and Luke in this week’s Flickering Myth Podcast for…
SCOOPERHERO NEWS – Wolverine WILL be in X-Men: Apocalypse to the surprise of nobody. In similar ‘we already figured you’d be in that movie news’, Robert Downey Jr. will play Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming. More unexpected, however, are the dubious character rumours for DC’s The Flash and Green Lantern Corps movies. And oh, the inhumanity! Inhumans has been quietly dropped from Marvel’s Phase III slate.
STAR WARS -Will beautiful baby George be in Episode VIII? Probably not. But his right royal dad and uncle, Princes William and Harry, might be. Also, Disney breathes a sigh of relief: James Cameron won’t be releasing his 87 Avatar sequels head-to-head with Star Wars films.
EVERYTHING ELSE – Darren Aronofsky’s next film gathers a fantastic cast, Goosebumps 2 in development, Alien 5 still alive, Warner Bros. call in the big guns to help out on their Jungle Book movie, and ROCK ‘THE DWAYNE’ JOHNSON HAS BEEN CAST IN JUMANJI. Awful news for some, awesome news for Oli and Luke.
MAILBAG – what’s the deal with slowed down piano scores in remake trailers? When, exactly, did Robert De Niro start phoning it in? Should we be excited about a potential Dredd Netflix series? And why is Obi Wan lying about who killed Luke’s parents?
POST-CREDITS SEQUENCE – Oli went to interview the cast of Captain America: Civil War this week. Here’s an excerpt of him annoying Chris Evans, forcing the actor to reveal Cap’s true sexuality.
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.
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States, with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) directing a cast that includes Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (The Vision), Don Cheadle (James Rhondes/War Machine), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter), Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) and William Hurt (General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross) alongside new additions Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl (Rush) as Baron Zemo, Tom Holland (The Impossible) as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Martin Freeman (Sherlock) as Everett Ross.
