Variety is reporting an interesting rumor about Robert Downey Jr's continued role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Supposedly he'll be joining Chris Evans in Captain America 3 (May 6th, 2016), in order to begin elements leading into a Marvel Civil War storyline.

For you non-comic book nerds, the Marvel Civil War was a seven-issue comic series back in 2007 in which the heroes in the Marvel Universe split down the middle on the idea of "Superhero Registration". Tony Stark believes the potential damage caused by hero-ing is too great to not have in a system of accountability, while Captain America sees too much of what he fought against in WWII in forced registration.



The idea of incorporating the Civil War into the MCU makes thematic sense. Captain America just spent a whole movie fighting for freedom over security, and if Tony Stark really does create Ultron in the upcoming Avengers 2, what will that do to his guilt? If Iron Man joins the cast of Captain America 3 in a large role, it raises many questions about the future of the MCU. How will it affect Robert Downey Jr's contract? Will he be in Avengers 3? Is a Civil War storyline too much when they've barely even introduced Thanos?

This Awesome Cosplay Will Convince You That Spider Gwen Needs a Movie



Spider Gwen hails from a universe in which Gwen Stacy was bitten by that rogue radioactive spider instead of young Peter Parker. In this universe, Stacy becomes the hero of New York. Introduced in a multi-universe Spider-hero crossover event, Spider Gwen quickly became a fan favorite and got her own book. The character will continue her story in October after Marvel's hero universe reboots.

This cosplay photo series from Hendo proves that Spider Gwen deserves her own movie. We don't know who owns the character. Sony? Marvel? Anyone? Let's just see this happen

With appearances from Captain America, Iron Man, Black Panther, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Vision and Spider-Man, Civil War sounds more like Avengers 2.5...

Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.

The epic Marvel fight begins shooting April 1st, with a release date in Summer 2016.

Devin Faraci from Birth. Death. Movies. recently spoke with Marvel Studios big-wig, Kevin Fiege about how the Wakandan King, Black Panther, will be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“It is a role that he is still in the beginning phases of taking on, it’s a mantle he is only beginning to take on because his father is older.”


It sounds like T'Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman, will be preparing to take over regency of his nation as his father begins to look toward abdication. Of course, Black Panther has a solo movie scheduled for late in Marvel's Phase Three, but we should see him sooner.

“The reason we introduced him in Civil War is because we needed a third party. We needed fresh eyes who wasn’t embedded with the Avengers and who has a very different point of view than either Tony or Steve. We said, ‘We need somebody like Black Panther… why don’t we just use Black Panther?’ That’s how it went in the development process.”




With Thor gone taking care of Asgard, Steve and Tony will look to T'Challa to be their counsel and mediator. Let's hope he's up to the task before any Avengers end up dying.

“Today, pre-Civil War, post-Ultron I think he and his father are saying, ‘A bunch of vibranium just got out of here and wreaked a lot of havoc. Maybe we can’t stay behind these borders anymore, maybe we have to stick our heads out and make at least an attempt to be a part of the rest of the world right now, while at the same time protecting our people.’"


Good luck, Black Panther, you're going to need it.

Let's be real, this rumor from The Daily Star probably has exactly zero truth to it, so for now let's say there's a slight chance we could be welcoming Queen Bey to the Avengers.  

Apparently, Beyoncé moved from New York to LA earlier this year in order to reboot her acting career, and the MCU might be just the place for her to get her feet wet.  An unnamed executive at Disney was quoted as saying "we would love to have Beyoncé on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel’s existing catalogue of comic book characters."  The characters she's rumored to be in the running for are Boom-Boom, Blink, Tigra, or Hawkeye.



As hot of a Tigra Beyoncé would be, these are all pretty ridiculous options.  If she were to join the MCU, who would you want Beyoncé to play?  One of these ladies?  Someone else?
