Chris Evans confident with Avengers: Infinity War as “Marvel doesn’t miss”

With the release of Avengers: Infinity War fast approaching, it’s getting hard to contain our excitement for the Marvel superhero epic, which is set to serve as the culmination of everything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the past ten years.

Speaking at Ace Comic-Con this past weekend, Chris Evans has been reflecting on his part in the film’s enormous ensemble cast, as well as sharing his own excitement for the final product, stating confidently that “Marvel doesn’t miss”.

“That was the best part of this movie, is that you really kind of, it really was for the first time for me feeling like… the first few movies it’s almost like it’s happening to somebody else,” said Evans. “You kind of feel like you’re watching it happen, but you’re not actually a part of it.

Steve Rogers to be Nomad in spirit only for Avengers: Infinity War

  • JoBlo
On Monday, we ran a story related to the possibility of Steve Rogers suiting up as his disillusioned alter-ego, Nomad, for Avengers: Infinity War. For quite some time, Marvel fans have been convinced that Chris Evans' First Avenger would relinquish his Captain America mantle during the events of the upcoming film. Then, in the midst of attending Ace Comic-Con in Phoenix this past weekend, both Chris Evans... Read More...

Avengers: Infinity War Director Joe Russo Weighs In On Cap/Nomad Rumors

Joe Russo, one half of the creative team driving Avengers: Infinity War, has finally addressed speculation linking Steve Rogers – and, by effect, Captain America – with the Nomad mantle.

Flanked by his brother Anthony Russo, not mention screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus (The Winter Soldier, Civil War), Joe Russo recently sat down with Digital Spy to discuss all things Marvel, including Steve Rogers and his projected trajectory.

He’s a member of the McU’s old guard – a Phase One Avenger so stubborn in his commitment to protecting people that he waged war against Tony Stark, who was still pedaling the contentious Superhuman Registration Act. Fast forward to 2018, and with the Captain America title ostensibly shelved, fans are beginning to wonder what Avengers: Infinity War has in store for the star-spangled patriot.

Well, it turns out Rogers still questions the chain of command:

Emily VanCamp Is 'Sharon Carter'

  • SneakPeek
Take another look @ revealing images of actress Emily VanCamp aka 'Sharon Carter', a 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' agent assigned to protect 'Steve Rogers' in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier":

"I play 'Agent 13/Sharon Carter' which everyone knows, but we don’t really touch on that in this film," said VanCamp.

"We’re just sort of introducing her.

"When we first see her we realize she’s living next to 'Captain America'...

"...they sort of have a little 'thing' going on...

"...and as we all know in the comic books they had a love affair off and on for years.

"They had a very complicated relationship.

"It’s almost as if they are planting the seeds now. Sort of leaving room to go wherever they want to go with it."

"We wanted someone that 'Cap' would have an immediate interest in,

Joe Russo says Steve Rogers “isn’t exactly Nomad” in Avengers: Infinity War

Last summer, it was rumoured that Chris EvansSteve Rogers would be taking on a new alias in Avengers: Infinity War, suiting up as his one of his alternate comic book alter egos – Nomad – after laying down Captain America’s shield at the end of Captain America: Civil War.

Evans himself added to the speculation this past weekend, signing both ‘Cap’ and ‘Nomad’ on a Captain America shield during an appearance at Arizona’s Ace Comic Con. However, we now have confirmation from Infinity War co-director Joe Russo that Cap won’t be Nomad exactly, but will be “in the spirit of that character.”

“Our approach to the [Steve Rogers] was to deconstruct him, to take him in a different direction,” Russo told Fantasy Focus Football. “Obviously you can’t deal with a character called Captain America without dealing with the thematics behind that, so we wanted a relevancy to it and

15 HD Images For Avengers: Infinity War Bring Us Closer To The Spectacle

Amid McU blowouts for Black Panther and Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and the Wasp (see here), Disney has now rolled out a series of high-definition images for Avengers: Infinity War, the deadliest cinematic showdown in the history of Marvel Studios.

Embedded below, there are 15 action shots in total, most of which have been pulled from Infinity War‘s record-setting trailer – 230 million views in its first 24 hours of release – while one features the close-up of Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and the unconscious Thor (Chris Hemsworth) that initially released through USA Today.

It’s just one of many, many crowd-pleasing exchanges primed to take place in Infinity War, given Joe and Anthony Russo have stacked their event movie with no less than 76 characters. That’s an impressive, if overwhelming roster by any standard, though we’re quietly confident in the Russo Brothers’ ability following their frankly incredible work on Captain America: Civil War.

"Avengers 4" - 'Captain America' Is 'Nomad'

  • SneakPeek
According to new reports, "Avengers 4" may feature 'Steve Rogers' aka 'Captain America' as Marvel Comics' superhero 'Nomad':

The 'Nomad' name and costume was created for Marvel by writer Steve Englehart and illustrator Sal Buscema as an alternate identity for 'Steve Rogers'...

...debuting in "Captain America" #180 (December 1974).

In that issue Rogers becomes disillusioned with the United States government, when he discovers a respected, high ranking government official is the leader of a 'Deep State' criminal organization called 'Secret Empire'.

Rogers abandons his Captain America identity, convinced he cannot continue to serve America after this latest reveal shatters his faith in the nation's status. 

However, a confrontation with 'Hawkeye' forces Rogers to realize he cannot abandon a life of heroism and he subsequently takes on the name 'Nomad', adopting a dark blue and yellow uniform devoid of patriotic markings. 

"Rogers eventually realizes he can champion America's ideals without blindly supporting its government.

Hayley Atwell Reveals Her Ideas For Agent Carter Season 3

Most of Marvel’s TV shows have been met with massive success, but one series that struggled to win over the public was Agent Carter. Though it possessed a devoted cult fanbase, ABC scrapped the show after two seasons due to low ratings, ignoring the vocal call from social media users for it to continue.

It’s a real tragedy, too, as there was so much potential in the series. Super secret agent Peggy Carter is such an integral part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as she co-founded S.H.I.E.L.D. with Howard Stark and worked with Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. As it was set in the 1950s, Agent Carter had only just scratched the surface of Peggy’s amazing life and there was so much room to grow in season 3 and beyond.

That’s what star Hayley Atwell feels, anyways. While attending Ace Comic Con this weekend,

Yet More Avengers 4 Set Pics Feature Old-School Cap

Perhaps more so than any other character on the Marvel roster, Steve Rogers is poised for a huge, potentially Earth-shaking arc across both Infinity War and Avengers 4.

Better known to you, I and the Us of A as Captain America, Rogers has already been tipped for a big character transformation (Nomad, perhaps?), while another spat with Iron Man is seemingly on the cards. That story clue was initially weaned from a batch of set photos captured in Atlanta (see here), spawning all sorts of fan theories ranging from alternate timelines to full-blown time travel.

It’s by no means official, of course, as there’s only so much info one can glean from pre-cg images lifted from a set. Besides, Avengers 4 has now wrapped production (check out the Thanos-themed cake!), so unless the Russo Brothers order up a round of reshoots, this is really the last time we’ll see

Chris Evans Confirms Nomad For Avengers: Infinity War

United we stand. Divided we fall.

As Marvel fans know all too well, that’s the evocative tagline that was attached to Captain America: Civil War back in 2016, when Joe and Anthony Russo placed Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on a collision course with one another. When the dust settled from Marvel’s superhero event movie, and the Winter Soldier was granted asylum in Wakanda, it looked certain that Steve Rogers was ready to walk away from his iconic shield and essentially drop the Captain America title for good. But there’s more to this arc than meets the eye.

That’s because it’s been heavily rumored that Avengers: Infinity War will see Chris Evans’ icon make the transition to Nomad, a character that gained popularity through Dimension Z from Rick Remender’s recent run. In the comics, Rogers turns his back on a corrupted U.S. government, and decides

Toby Jones Will Be Another 'Captain America' Villain

Chris Evans is going to start a rivalry with Toby Jones. The British star is in final negotiations to star as the villain in "Captain America: The First Avenger" in which Evans is tapped to play the title role, The Hollywood Reporter has claimed.

Jones is reportedly cast as a villainous scientist named Arnim Zola. In the comic books, Zola is a genetic engineer who creates clones and various monstrosities for Adolf Hitler. He also uses these skills to form a new body for himself, surviving through the war and into modern times.

In addition to Jones, Hugo Weaving is already hired to be another Captain America's enemy Red Skull. Meanwhile, the superhero will get some aid from his sidekick Bucky Barnes, who will be portrayed by Sebastian Stan. Hayley Atwell also joins the cast as Captain America's love interest Peggy Carter.
