Science Fiction com – Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. were on hand at the Nickelodeon ‘Kids’ Choice Awards’ to present an extended version of the ‘Captain America: Civil War’ trailer. While it is largely identical to the clip that debuted last week, introducing Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, this longer version offers fans a better look at some of the supporting cast, including Frank Grillo as baddie Crossbones, Emily VanCamp in action as Agent 13, longer shots of Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and a face-off between the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and The Vision (Paul Bettany).
Joe and Anthony Russo really upped the ante with their political thriller ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, one of the most acclaimed– and highest grossing– of the Marvel Studios films. The pair are on board to direct ‘Avengers: Infinity War – Part One’, but ‘Civil War’ should give fans a look at how the pair handle a gaggle of superheroes all sharing the screen.
VULTURE – How would you like to roll around in bed with Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen as they kiss, exchange declarations of love, and mull a nighttime “bronco ride” that sounds more than a little steamy? You’re in luck, because this exclusive clip from their new movie, I Saw the Light, is so intimate — and the chemistry between the stars so evident — that you’ll almost feel like three’s a crowd in that big bed.
In the film from writer-director Marc Abraham (out March 25), Hiddleston plays country-music star Hank Williams, whose undeniable talent was marred by a battle with alcohol addiction. He’s off the bottle in this bedroom scene, which his wife Audrey notes will only be a boon during their forthcoming bronco ride. Press play and watch as the two of them get it on, and please don’t think of Hiddleston and Olsen’s better-known Marvel roles: The notion of Loki fooling around with a negligee-wearing Scarlet Witch might inspire some mighty weird fanfic.
DIGITAL SPY – Elizabeth Olsen has defended co-star Tom Hiddleston’s casting as Hank Williams in their upcoming movie – claiming that he “nailed” his performance as the legendary singer.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron star – who was awarded Movie Actress of the Year at last night’s Elle Style Awards – plays Audrey Mae Williams opposite Hiddleston in Marc Abraham’s I Saw the Light, set for release later this year.
She told Digital Spy: “I know some people were confused by why he was cast as the part, but you won’t think twice about when you watch the movie.”
Olsen also spoke about co-starring with Jeremy Renner in upcoming political thriller Windy River, and playing Scarlet Witch in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
TV Actress of the Year Liv Tyler, All Saints, Ellie Goulding, Nick Grimshaw and Inspiring Woman of the Year Karlie Kloss were also in attendance at yesterday’s star-studded ceremony at the Tate Britain.
SUPERHEROHYPE – Following this year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, the collective Marvel team ended with a different roster than it began and among the new members was Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff, AKA Scarlet Witch. Olsen is set to reprise her role in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War and speaking with Premiere, the actress opened up about the film and had high praise for it and newcomer Daniel Brühl.
“I think it’s going to be the best one, no, no, but for real, I am very excited to see it for myself. I only worked on set for five weeks, so I wasn’t there for the majority of it, but Daniel Brühl is an incredible actor and he’s playing the main villain in it. He’s incredible. It’s a movie about people as opposed to robots this time, so it’s darker and it’s allowed to be darker because it gets more in the mindset of humans rather than machines.”
Set for release in the United States on May 6, 2016, Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. It is set to feature the return of Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, this time joined in his “solo” film by fellow Avengers Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.
