COMIC REEL: Evans Talks Superhero Fatigue; Munn on Turning Down “Deadpool”

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Despite some Hollywood big-wigs’ belief that superhero movies are creating a fatigue among audiences, “Captain America: Civil War” star Chris Evans isn’t so concerned. Rather, the Captain America actor attributes the longevity of the genre to the quality of the films — referring to his “Civil War” as a prime example.

Evans told the Associated Press (via Yahoo! Movies), “Luckily, [“Captain America: Civil War”] is good. If you were all rallying around and working toward and sweating for a bad product, I think that’s how you begin the initiation of disillusionment and apathy… As long as Marvel is making good movies, I’ll still have the excitement and enthusiasm and commitment to work for them.”

Additionally, Evans, Kevin Feige, Joe Russo, Anthony Russo, and Nate Moore weighed in on Steve Rogers’ cinematic journey up until “Civil War” in a new featurette — also remarking on the character’s relationship to Bucky, and how he impacts Rogers’ decision-making:

DEADPOOL

“X-Men: Apocalypse” star Olivia Munn has opened up about turning down the role of Wade Wilson’s girlfriend, Vanessa — ultimately played by Morena Baccarin — in “Deadpool,” revealing that she didn’t want to just play the girlfriend of a main character again.

According to American Way Magazine, “Munn says she didn’t want to be the girlfriend. Not again. She wanted to fight. To make noise. To kick butt.”

Munn recounted meeting with the “Apocalypse” team after turning down “Deadpool”: “I said, ‘Is there a fight scene?'”

“I thought Psylocke was always one of the most lethal characters, and I said, ‘Yes, as long as you’re not using her to be the eye candy. She has really powerful abilities.’ And they said, ‘Yes, that’s an important part.,'” Munn recalled.

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

ABC has released a new preview for the first post-“Civil War” episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” titled “Emancipation.”

With only two episodes left before S.H.I.E.L.D. loses one of their own, Daisy’s prophecy ticks closer towards a major loss, as the aftermath of the events of “Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War” force S.H.I.E.L.D. to register the Inhumans, on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
