Hugo Weaving was a great Nazi in Captain America: The First Avenger, playing Cap’s nemesis, Red Skull. And given that it was a comic book movie, meaning time and space are fluid—and given that any non-Loki villain has failed to really capture people’s attention—it’s natural to want Weaving back. So he’s opened the…
Civil War II has already torn the Marvel universe into two conflicting sides, and claimed the life of the Hulk himself. But its latest portent of doom promises to be its biggest, and most polarizing yet.
It is a crying shame that we probably won’t see another entry in the Marvel vs. Capcom fighting game series for quite some time. But while we dream of that, at least this clever edit of footage from Captain America: Civil War can let us ponder what might have been.
As the leading hype-man of cinematic synthezoids in sweaters, I have to say that Captain America: Civil War has now retroactively become the worst film of 2016, simply for denying us the chance to see Vision to wear a three piece suit or a cardigan on the big screen.
Here’s the weird thing about an already great movie like Captain America: Civil War. It’s such a big hit that it doesn’t have to be a good Blu-ray. It could be the movie on a disc in a paper slipcover and it would sell like crazy. But thankfully, Marvel decided to pack the release with lots of solid, additional…
The live-action battle between Iron Man and Captain America was pretty damn good. That might lead you to believe its Lego counterpart couldn’t quite live up to it, but as this shockingly good video shows, you’d be wrong.
Civil War had a lot of fun stuff in it, but its pitch-perfect introduction of the Black Panther is one of our absolute favorite parts. This new deleted scene featuring him and Black Widow having a loaded little chat is certainly no exception to the film’s rule that T’Challa basically has to be awesome in every scene…
When the third Captain America film was in the early stages of development, Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel Studios were still embroiled in discussions for a new contract to see the actor return as Tony Stark. So with one-half of the “Civil War” conflict potentially unavailable, the Russo brothers had one old comic arc…
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Steve Rogers is the only Captain America—but that’s not the case in the comics, where many people have come to wield the shield. This fun little deleted scene from Civil War reveals that the movie was going to make sly reference to a few of those non-Steve Captains.
Steve Rogers is doing a whole lot more than just saying Hail Hydra and taking orders from the Red Skull. He’s got plans. Straight-up evil plans.
Zemo’s plan in Captain America: Civil War was full of so many twists, turns, and misdirects, it got your head spinning quicker than Spider-Man could swing his way around a Leipzig airport. But we’ve got a brand new deleted scene, making its debut here on io9, that shows a crucial early moment of that plan in action.
If there’s a famous comic book property out there, artist Francesco Francavilla has probably been a part of it. His realistic, yet pulpy and vibrant style fits perfectly with so many characters and publisher. Well his fantastic work is finally getting the gallery show it deserves.
The filmmakers from Sneaky Zebra are back with a sequel to a 2013 short film called Prop Wars, where countless movie replicas are used in an epic battle between a group of friends. Prop Wars: Prop Harder draws its inspiration from countless blockbusters including Tron: Legacy, The Force Awakens, Men In Black, Evil Dead…
Not gonna lie—it warms my shriveled heart to see a female, hijab-wearing Captain America. But even beyond that, this is just really, truly, honestly great cosplay.
The Crew #5 is a comic that gave me life. It’s a remix of history, a superhero genre work that seethes with spiritual energy. Reading it feels like, no lie, going to church.
Next week, a 13-foot statue of Captain America will be unveiled in Brooklyn to celebrate the character’s 75 anniversary. Happily, when this happens the two people who created Captain America will also merit a mention or two.
Civil War II has already been about making some pretty bad choices. But when it comes to a close, the leaders of either side of the conflict are going to make an even worse choice than the ones that lead to Civil War II in the first place: trusting the not-so-trustworthy-at-the-moment Steve Rogers.
Fun fact about the recently announced, 13-foot tall statue of the Brooklyn’s favorite (fictional son): It’s not actually in Brooklyn at the moment.
Remember when they’re on the snow planet, with the walking thingies?
