CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Birth.Movies.Death has heard from a number of unidentified people that have seen “Civil War,” who say that the last half hour of the film “is brutal, both physically and emotionally.” One person reportedly said that “the last act plays out as an emotional horror movie because the film gives both Tony and Steve solid reasoning, and because it truly makes you feel the depths of this schism.”

New promotional images of Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch also appeared on Imgur, as reported by MCU Exchange.

AGENT CARTER


You can read a recap of “Agent Carter’s” season two finale — “Hollywood Ending” — right here.

In an interview with CBR, star Hayley Atwell revealed that her starring in another ABC pilot (a series called “Conviction”) doesn’t preclude her from returning for “Agent Carter” season 3 should ABC give it the go ahead.

“It’s something I’ve tried not to entertain too much,” Atwell answered when asked if she thinks the Season 2 finale will serve as a fitting end for the character, if that’s how it shakes out. “There is a chance, from what I know, if both shows get picked up, I’ll be doing both. Until I know one way or the other, I can’t jump for joy or grieve.

“The main thing I do have is the memories of two seasons of incredibly fulfilling and fun work, with a group of people that have come to be my friends and that I still speak to, especially James D’Arcy and Dominic Cooper,” Atwell added. “They are part of my personal life, and I find that very moving, that I could do a show like this and develop really good relationships with people. I’ll always have that, if the network decides not to move forward with it. And if it does, it’s great because I get to do it all over again, and even attempt to outdo myself with how much more fun I could possibly have in the third season. Either way, I’m looking at both outcomes as very positive ones, with a zen-like mentality of ‘What will be, will be.'”

The Central Board of Film Certification of India made one minor edit to “BvS” of “a fleeting nude figure.” Additionally, the film earned a UA (suitable for underage viewers accompanied by an adult) rating due to violence.

Director Zack Snyder shared a pic of the film’s production on Twitter, which features a very blurry Batman.


Superman Homepage has a transcription from the upcoming issue of “Wired,” which features an interview with Snyder. The director revealed that

“We’ve been strict with our rules. What they can do — Batman, Superman, Flash, Cyborg — we really are hard on ourselves because we want all those things to have a reality, a mythological grounding.” said Snyder of his heroes.

He also spoke about the debut of Wonder Woman, saying, “Female empowerment is a thing I’ve gone after in all my films. They all have strong female representation. It’s about time Wonder Woman was represented correctly.”

ComicBookMovie also spotted some character biography text on a Wonder Woman bust that appeared on Instagram.



The text, which reveals Wonder Woman’s alter ego Diana Prince’s job, reads:

The world’s first and foremost female Super Hero, Wonder Woman at once embodies the unrivaled force and supreme grace of a born warrior, and the genuine compassion and understanding of a true humanitarian. As a symbol of equality, power, and truth, her natural confidence and unmistakable intelligence make her an unequalled, if unexpected, ally.

The immortal Amazonian Princess Diana keeps her eyes and ears open for intrigue as the beautiful and mysterious antiquities dealer, Diana Prince.
