THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – With more than 10 superheroes lining up for a fight, fans wondered just how big Captain America: Civil War was going to be. Now they have their answer — with a 2 hours and 27 minutes runtime, Disney confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
At 147 minutes, Civil War will be the longest Marvel movie to date, coming in four minutes longer than the previous title holder, 2012’s Marvel’s The Avengers. Apparently, Marvel movies featuring teams of superheroes run long; last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron ran 141 minutes, with all other Marvel releases save 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier (136 minutes) clocking in around the two hour mark.
For those looking for specifics, continuing down from longest to shortest, the remaining Marvel movies are Iron Man 3 (130 mins), Iron Man (126 mins), Iron Man 2 (125 mins), Captain America: The First Avenger (124 mins), Guardians of the Galaxy (122 mins), Ant-Man (117 mins), Thor (114 mins) and, matching each other for joint last place, The Incredible Hulk and Thor: The Dark World (112 mins).
Captain America: Civil War is likely to need the expanded length; in addition to pitting two teams of superheroes against each other and tying up the Winter Soldier plot left dangling in the previous Cap movie, the feature will also introduce two new players to the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland).
While it may be the longest Marvel movie to date, it’s far from the longest superhero movie released. This month’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice runs 151 minutes, while 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises ran an impressive 165 minutes.
Captain America: Civl War opens May 5.

SCREENRANT -Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron finally gave the team’s marksman, Hawkeye, the spotlight attention he deserved. As one of the few original Avengers without a solo origin story, Clint Barton’s (Jeremy Renner) background and personality can only be explored in team movies, and Ultron took advantage of this where its predecessor did not. Moviegoers were able to learn about his secret family life and why he’s the heart of the team.
And it’s a motivating speech, from the perspective of a non-superpowered soldier in Hawkeye, that helps newcomer Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) step up and fight alongside the Avengers. That relationship, as we learned from chatting with the pair last summer, continues in Captain America: Civil War. With her brother dead, the Avengers are the new family for Wanda, and it’s Clint who helps her feel at home.
In our interview, Renner talks about his new costume and how he’ll be using nonlethal arrows to battle fellow Avengers. And as for Scarlet Witch, we’ll see a whole new power level for the character who’s been developing and training in the year since Age of Ultron. No mind control this time!
Where do we pick up with your characters? [to Renner] At the end of Ultron, you’re chillin’ with your family, hanging at the farmhouse, and [to Olsen] you’re kind of reeling from the death of your brother. So where do we pick up with guys in Civil War?
Elizabeth Olsen: We leave Scarlet Witch without a home, without a family, and she ends up creating a surrogate family within the Avengers and making a decision to be a part of the team. I think a lot of that has to do with what Jeremy’s character – like his attitude towards her and the speech he gives her at the end of the film. So we pick up with her having started a new life, but still trying to figure out what her abilities are and if using them causes greater good or greater damage.
Jeremy Renner: Marvel’s really smart about continuing the storylines of all the different movies from Ultron into this one and blah to blah to blah – it’s pretty seamless. So where we left off in Ultron is definitely picked up in Cap 3 here, pretty smoothly I think.
So are you still wrestling with the fact of do I stay with my family or do I help with the situation – is that still kind of your motivation?
Jeremy Renner: I think that’ll always be there for [Clint] Barton, right? You have real life, and then you have fight life. [Laughs] And that’s the character that I love now – discovering that in him makes him a very sort of accessible Avenger. That’ll always be there, I’m sure. And it certainly plays in this one.
What is the bond like between you two?

COMIC BOOK MOVIE – Three more awesome pieces of Captain America: Civil War concept art give us our best look yet at Scarlet Witch’s (Elizabeth Olsen) updated costume for this latest MCU movie…
Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo and from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
With an all-star cast that includes Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo, with William Hurt, and Martin Freeman, Captain America: Civil War is scheduled for release on May 6, 2016.

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.

Velvet-wrapped ponytails popped up on the models at Suno’s fall 2016 show.
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Much like the topknot and the hun (half-up bun), it appears the velvet-wrapped ponytail could be the latest hashtag-able hairdo. While Vogue.com declared “Suno Just Solved Your Date-Night Hair Situation: Meet the Velvet-Wrapped Ponytail,” the look isn’t entirely new.
French hairstylist Odile Gilbert created the look using Kerastase products for models walking the runway at Suno’s fall 2016 show — and she also created velvet-wrapped chignons for the models three years ago at Monique Lhuillier’s fall 2013 show. But, the velveteen pony that had fashionistas in a frenzy at Suno was previously seen at a shoot last November for The Hollywood Reporter’s Beauty Issue.
It was the genius of red-carpet hairstylist Mark Townsend, whose clients include Rachel McAdams and Dakota Johnson. Townsend had originally created a silk-velvet wrapped low ponytail for client Elizabeth Olsen to wear to the I Saw the Light premiere in Nashville: “Lizzy texted me and said I am thinking about a ribbon in the hair, so when she said she wanted a ribbon, I brought about 20 options — leather, suede, velvet — different widths.
