AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
During the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” Blu-ray press conference, producer Jeremy Latcham teased that “Infinity War” will feature the end of “some version” of the Avengers.
“Well, I think it definitely is an end to some version of the team that we’ve come to know as The Avengers,” said Latcham. “Who knows exactly what’s going to happen yet in that film, but I think this version of that team — and I think we started to hint at it at the end of ‘Age of Ultron,’ that the team will be evolving. And one of the things we love in the comics is that the roster is always changing. That new people are coming on to the team, and that you could pick up an Avengers book ten years later and you don’t recognize people on the cover. But the ideas and the ideals and things that make the Avengers the Avengers, still exist, and I think that’s part of what this culmination will be. We’re seeing this version of the team doing this thing to save the universe, the galaxy, however you want to put it, and we’ll kind of see where that goes. It’s not the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but I think it is the end of part of it, for sure. We’re still trying to sort out which parts.”

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
“It’s very much, in a certain way, the completion of a Captain America trilogy,” Feige explained to MTV. “I think one day you’ll look back and watch — ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ and ‘Captain America: Civil War’ — and it’ll be one of the most unique and different trilogies ever around a single character.”

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige talked with MTV about the casting process for “Captain Marvel” recently, giving an update on when we should know the actress playing Carol Danvers on film.
“There won’t be any announcements about that this year,” Feige said. “I think right now we’re scripting the film, figuring out who we want Carol Danvers to be, and really what the structure of the movie will be and what her part will be in some of our other Phase 3 films. And it would be next year that we start to really think about casting.”
“We have really amazing writers on the movie,” added producer Jeremy Latcham. “Meg [LeFauve] and Nicole [Perlman] are great, and I think getting the character right first is going to lead the charge. We want to make sure we know who it is before we can start figuring out who should play it.”
When it comes to casting, they even mentioned that they are aware of all those fancasts.
“We read it, we go through it, we read the comments, we look at who people like,” said Latcham. “Sometimes it’s really enlightening. Sometimes it’s the exact same person that they’ve been saying over and over again that we don’t think is right. It’s always fun to kinda go through it and see what people are up to.”

“For some reason people sometimes talked about how we’re not doing an origin story, we’re bored of origin stories,” said Feige, referencing the previous rumblings. “I think people are bored of origin stories they’ve seen before or origin stories that are overly familiar. Doctor Strange has one of the best, most classic, most unique origin stories of any hero we have, so why wouldn’t we do that? That was sort of always the plan. How you tell that origin, perhaps there are ways to twist it or play with that, but for the most part, it’s a gift when the comics have something with such clarity of story and of character. That doesn’t always happen in the comics, and when it does, you use it.”

The Hollywood Reporter has an in-depth examination of the rumors around director Rupert Wyatt’s departure from “Gambit.” The piece chronicles Wyatt’s career, going from indie filmmaker to in-demand blockbuster director after the surprise success of “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” and how his anxiety has caused him to depart pictures at multiple major studios. The same is rumored to have happened to “Gambit,” when Wyatt couldn’t convince 20th Century Fox to sign on for his vision for the project.

In an interview with CBR, “iZombie” actor David Anders talked about his character Blaine’s relationship with series lead Liv.
“It’s the same as it ever was. There’s some awareness on Blaine’s part whenever Liz is around, because she still remains a zombie,” said Anders. “He still taunts her and dangles his humanity in front of her and the fruits of being a human in front of her, knowing she’s had the opportunity to kill him, but didn’t. That’s not in her make-up.
“In Season 2, they are going to put aside their rocky past, so that maybe they can have a rocky future. They have to team up. They don’t like each other. She doesn’t like him. He doesn’t like her. That’s fine. Teammates don’t have to like each other. Teammates don’t have to be friends. Teammates just have to win.”
