Nick Izumi Takes On ‘Steve Rogers: Captain America’ #1

So some people got a little miffed at the end of the first issue of Steve Rogers: Captain America… which I’m sure has been spoiled for you elsewhere. But we’re not going to spoil it for you unless you decide to go further.

Nick Izumi is our resident Captain America expert, and so rather than write something up about it, we decided it was best to just put the video response he posted to his YouTube channel. So if you’ve got eleven minutes and don’t mind spoilers, listen to Nick’s pretty reasoned response…

…and why everyone just needs to calm the frick down.

The New ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Trailer Swings Onto the Internet

So Captain America: Civil War is probably one of the most anticipated films of 2016, and with good reason. The idea of watching a bunch of superheroes punch each other is pretty appealing… and I mean, I guess there’s character driven drama and sociopolitical commentary too.

But c’mon, punching!

We got the first trailer for the film back in November, but today we got another one for Marvel’s upcoming punch fest. It’s more of the same, and while pretty cool to watch, doesn’t really offer anyth… WAIT IS THAT SPIDER-MAN?! THAT’S TOTALLY SPIDER-MAN. AWESOME!

I mean, it’s like just a few seconds of Spider-Man, but still!


Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6, 2016.

Will Cap 3 Introduce Baron Zemo?

A casting list from Captain America: Civil War reportedly indicates that Daniel Bruhl will be playing the good Captain’s hooded enemy Baron Zemo.

Honestly, I’m surprised that that they waited this long to introduce Zemo. He’s probably Cap’s most major enemy next to Red Skull, but, if Bruhl is playing the Deformed Baron, its a great casting choice.
