Watch: Captain America: Civil War Team Iron Man Jimmy Kimmel Promo

Update: Watch the Captain America: Civil War clip:

 

 

Team Iron Man will be on Jimy Kimmel Live tonight with Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle and more for Captain America: Civil War.

Watch a promo below for tonight’s show.

Monday night saw Team Cap appear with a new clip, Tuesday saw the Doctor Strange trailer and Agents of SHIELD clip, so tonight it’s probably a good guess we’ll see another Captain America: Civil War clip.

Chris Hemsworth is set for tomorrow night on Kimmel.

“Captain America: Civil War” has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.

Synopsis:

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

Check out a pair of new Captain America: Civil War images featuring Sebastian Stan and Don Cheadle.

The two, though on separate sides in Civil War, may actually have something in common as many fans think the characters have a high potential to die in the movie.

The recent Captain America: Civil War trailer revealed The Winter Soldier’s arm ripped off following a fight with Iron Man (though Disney fixed it in an international trailer for some reason), and Don Cheadle has been fielding comments on Twitter from fans regarding the death of War Machine.

Another possibility is these could be red-herrings with another character’s death coming this May.

Captain America: Civil War: Don Cheadle Addresses Reactions To War Machine’s Possible Death

The question may not be which side to choose in Captain America: Civil War, but who will make it out alive?

So far the bets are against the survival of War Machine due to the footage in the trailers, which many think will be the catalyst that causes Tony Stark to side against Team Cap.

Don Cheadle happens to be on Twitter and has been getting a lot of feedback regarding the possibility and tells the NY Daily News the following about the reaction to War Machine’s potential demise:

“I’m on Twitter, so I’ve gotten a few people going, ‘Rhodey better not be dead, son. I’m going to be so mad.’ Or ‘I’m done with this thing if Rhodey’s dead,’ “

“But that’s cool, I like that people get so upset about it,” he adds. “I like that in a Marvel movie people are able to evoke such emotion.”

Cheadle wouldn’t directly comment on what may or may not happen with War Machine in Captain America: Civil War, but did admit and tease: “It does look bad for Rhodey.”

Don Cheadle also stars in the Miles Davis biopic, Miles Ahead, which is out April 1st.

“Captain America: Civil War” has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.

Team Iron Man Comments On Captain America: Civil War

We just heard what Team Cap had to say, now check out comments from Team Iron Man about Captain America: Civil War.

Team Cap posters and 22 high-res pics have also been released.

Robert Downey Jr.:

“People are much less capable of processing things than they think and we’re kind of simple and dumb. And for a guy who is fast, he’s definitely on the verge of practically getting over himself,” says Downey of Stark, decked out in business attire rather than his Iron Man suit on this May day of filming in Atlanta. “I almost feel like sometimes he’s some (old man) who goes back to the neighborhood and goes, ‘Kids, it doesn’t have to be like this.’ ”

“Regardless of whose argument is what, communication is about really being able to fully see the other person’s point of view,” he says. “I fully see Cap’s point of view — I don’t know if Tony does.” 

Don Cheadle:

“Obviously, I can’t do anything that violates my oath but at the same time we’re dealing with things that haven’t ever been in the playbook.”

Paul Bettany:

 “The stronger you are, the more you invite challenge. Something has to rise to fill the vacuum.”

Scarlett Johansson:

“Either we’re going to fight it and lose or we’re going to go with it and make it work,” Johansson says. “Regimes come and go but we have to pat the backs this time and shake hands and play nice.”

Chadwick Boseman:

 “He’s definitely his own guy,” Boseman says. “There’s no ‘I’m going to do whatever you say because you’re the leader of this team.’ That’s not who he is. But I would say that’s also true of other characters.”

Don Cheadle Jokes The War Machine Suit Is Racist On Conan O’Brien (Video)

Don Cheadle recently appeared on Conan O’Brien where he discussed wearing the War Machine suit.

Cheadle remarked that it’s a lot heavier than Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man suit, with jokes of being racist mentioned.

See the video below for more.

While Don Cheadle wouldn’t confirm that War Machine is returning, James Rhodes is confirmed for The Avengers 2 as an article previously stated he has a part in the next Avengers movie.

Don Cheadle Confirmed For The Avengers 2

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:12625:]]

Looks like Don Cheadle may be suiting up as War Machine for The Avengers 2 as it has become known the actor will have a role in the sequel to Joss Whedon’s 2012 Marvel Studios superhero flick that generated over $1 billion at the box office.

In an article by USA Today, it’s mentioned that Cheadle “has a part to film in the next Avengers movie.” Though it is not specifically stated he will be featured as War Machine – it could simply be an appearance by James Rhodes – but an appearance by Iron Man’s right-hand man could be a strong possibility.

War Machine wasn’t a part of the first Avengers movie – and there was a reason – as a preclude Iron Man 3 comic book from Marvel explained Rhodey’s absence as he was on a mission in Asia. It was actually revealed that as Iron Man was battling Loki, he called War Machine for assistance, but War Machine couldn’t get there on time as Rhodey was on the other side of the world.

Don Cheadle joins Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johannson and James Spader in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, which has a May 1, 2015 release directed by Joss Whedon.

Movie Review: Iron Man 3 (IMAX 3D)

Phase 2 Fizzle

A Film Review of Iron Man 3

By: Lawrence Napoli

 

Thanks to Robert Downey Jr. (and him alone), the Iron Man franchise has become a household name for the Marvel/Disney Super PAC that isn’t named Spider-Man, Wolverine, Mickey Mouse, Indiana Jones or Luke Skywalker.  His performance breathes life into the inanimate and has raised the bar substantially for actors taking roles in the contemporary action/adventure/blockbuster film that is more than likely based on a comic book.  Unfortunately, Iron Man is still a man, and apparently Downey isn’t interested in doing these movies for the rest of his career.  Yes, Downey is in for The Avengers 2 (which is what Phase 2 is all about), but Iron Man 3 is clearly the official beginning of phasing out Tony Stark from this film universe (thus confirming the rumor that alpha personalities tied to this franchise are walking away) and this impacts Iron Man 3 in a negative way.  The parallel to The Dark Knight Rises are undeniable and though we can debate over which final chapter was better than the other, both films could have and should have been more than the final product we all witnessed.  Iron Man 3, like Iron Man 2 before it, is guilty of being an average (but expensive) blockbuster.  It isn’t fresh and inventive like the first Iron Man, nor does it approach the greatness of Marvel’s The Avengers.  For this entire movement of putting the Marvel Universe on film with the infinite resources at its disposal, the crime of going through the motions is inexcusable.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7429:]]

Is Iron Man flying or falling?  You be the judge.

Once enough people fork over the cash to see Iron Man 3 (and don’t you even consider the increased prices for digital DLP projection or IMAX because the 3D effect is 100% NOT worth it), we will finally know what Joss Whedon meant when he was quoted as saying “Now what am I supposed to do now?  What am I going to do in Avengers 2?”  Everyone in the news media press presumed this was some posturing to the effort made by director/co-writer Shane Black by acknowledging that Whedon’s own plot for the next Avengers would somehow pale in comparison to what others have described as Iron Man’s “epic,” “bombastic,” and “incredible,” third installment.  Go ahead and watch the film, then think about that quote one more time.  Whedon wasn’t bowing.  He was pulling the last strands out of his balding dome over the plot and character limitations imposed on him as a result of Iron Man 3.  There are no spoilers here, so if you want to know what I’m talking about, read EIC Matt McGloin’s thoughts.  There are only so many places Whedon can go with the Avengers’ MVP and now those possibilities are cut in half.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7430:]]

So buddy.  Where do we go now?

Ultimately, the story of Iron Man 3 is a whole lot of blather that involves Tony Stark’s spring cleaning of some trivial domestic issues back in the US.  The Mandarin is blowing up American landmarks and he’s a crazy terrorist that needs to be put down.  I found it hilarious how his buddy James Rhodes actually makes reference to this situation: “Aren’t you running around with the Super Friends now?” as to suggest that his involvement in this plot is a little low-ball for Tony.  What was suggested as a terrorist plot for some sort of world control boils down to a personal grudge between massive egos in this fictitious, scientific community.  What was hinted as Tony becoming an even more devoted partner to Pepper Potts is glazed over thanks to a time consuming, Sherlock-ian investigation and is used as a shameless plot device to usher in what will be the end of Robert Downey Jr. in these films.  What would have been possible in seeing the fallout of the invasion of New York is completely swept under the rug with another convenient plot device of Tony’s frequent panic attacks which allows this script to ignore The Avengers completely. 

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7431:]]

You know, I could have used you in The Avengers.

I didn’t like any of this.  It reaffirms the fact that while Iron Man is a cool Marvel personality, he has the worst rogue’s gallery of every major comic book hero.  It tells me in a world where aliens have invaded and can potentially invade again, terrorism in any capacity is somehow still relevant.  This script only introduces more important, personal issues with Tony Stark (the man) only to ignore them in order to focus on the active plot of pitting Iron Man against some obscure villain.  The story is still funny in that it still shows off Tony Stark as an ego driven, genius, philanthropist, playboy, but there’s just so much of it shoved in your face from start to finish that the audience is left wondering if even Stark is taking any of this seriously even when he gets angry after the conflict hits way too close to home.  The climax and resolution of this film treats the audience like children by presenting us with several brand new toys (plot twists) and then taking them away immediately, never to be seen again.  The bullet points of Iron Man 3 too closely resemble those of Iron Man 2 and nothing that happens in this film (even in the post credits teaser) introduces, suggests or even slightly hints at anything that could be happening for The Avengers 2.  Perhaps this is Hollywood mimicking the comic book industry by employing a lot of writers all in charge of their own projects and are somehow expected to be relevant to the crossover arc the company as a whole is trying to promote.  Whedon was right.  I have no idea what the heck he’s going to do with Tony Stark now.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7434:]]

Don’t tell me the dream is dead.

Iron Man 3 is not a total loss (despite the fact it is a big disappointment) and most of that credit goes to the action and visual effects on display.  $200 million yields plenty of massive set pieces that get devastated from gun fire, missiles and massive explosions.  It also yields lots of awesome Iron Man aerial maneuvers, combat and technology.  I must say that it was a real treat to see Stark’s ‘Iron Family’ at work during the climax, but my criticism of them is twofold.  First, they only pay off in a minimal way thanks to how they end up (but that’s another writing criticism) and second, the different armors don’t really show off their individual specializations very well.  The only one that stands out is the ‘Hulk Buster’ armor we’ve all seen in the trailers, which is used to do one thing and never seen again.   As a result, the Iron party is more like a lot of copy/pastes with different paint jobs that still look sleek and realistic, but all do the same thing.  I wasn’t the biggest fan of Robert Downey Jr. engaging in a lot more action out of the suit in this film, but those sequences are surprising at displaying Tony Stark’s martial prowess (I’m pretty sure Matt Murdock isn’t his sensei).  I like that the plot forces Tony out of the tin can for no other reason than giving the audience something different to look at which is still stimulating, though not as sexy as the suit.  Eye candy alone will see this film easily double its budget, but it won’t see Avengers money.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7438:]]

Here we come to save the day.

I have no complaints about the performances in Iron Man 3 because the overall cast demonstrates their veteran prowess.  Guy Pearce’s Aldrich Killian is your stereotypical bad guy/crazy evil genius, and I knew his character was going to be that way because the man’s made a career of playing *ssholes in movies.  Don Cheadle, the man who should have been established as James Rhodes in the first Iron Man, produces another fine performance as the Iron Patriot who secretly pines for a resurrection of War Machine which produces a few memorable laughs amidst Stark’s constant “I’m a needy genius” comedy throughout.  Jon Favreau is thankfully limited to screen time in the beginning of the film as Happy Hogan (ugh, how is he still skulking around the sets of these films?).  Rebecca Hall as Maya Hansen presents a character meant to be plagued by the ethics/morality of science unchecked (which is a plot point that dies before given a real chance to live), but she is hilarious when making reference to her role in Ben Affleck’s The Town in the beginning of the movie.  Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts is once again personable, elegant and charming, and I really enjoyed when her character is called upon to get her fists dirty, but that too is muffled thanks to shoddy writing.  Paul Bettany simply does not get enough credit as the voice of Jarvis in all of these films, so I’ll give him a much deserved shout-out now because his dignified delivery is matched only by his brilliant comedic timing.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7435:]]

Wait a minute!  We can do stuff outside of the armor?

A word on Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin in Iron Man 3: I totally get what they were trying to do with this character, but I cannot fathom how Shane Black lured an actor of Kingsley’s caliber into this film with the red herring his character represents.  Let’s not confuse the quality of his performance with the irrelevance of his character.  Kingsley delivers; plain and simple.  You may think the lines of dialogue we’ve all heard in the trailers may sound annoying thanks to his disjointed delivery, but that goes away to reveal something much more entertaining, hilarious and actually thought provoking when considering the world’s modern experience with terrorism.  Perhaps the uniqueness of the satire is what hooked Sir Ben; that and one fat paycheck.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7437:]]

I am more (or less) than what I appear to be.

Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark.  It’s all been said and it’s all true once again.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7439:]]

Seriously?  Were you expecting anything less?

This movie was good, but it is not great.  Iron Man 3 is very entertaining in presenting amazing visual effects while coalescing them with uniquely hilarious dialogue and circumstances.  Unfortunately, without any effort to move the Avenger franchise forward with Tony Stark’s individual efforts in this film, it makes this story a complete waste of time.  It’s great that Tony still cares about stuff at home, both in his country and his personal life.  It’s great that he’s still at work doing his innovative Iron-Man-thing.  It’s great that he feels anguish over the invasion of New York.  But let’s expand on all of those plot points, not just leave them behind in the dust.  For a character all about transformation and improvement, there really isn’t a concept of change that matters for Tony Stark.  He’s the same human dynamo that is simply put into another dangerous situation that he can skillfully address thanks to his own efforts.  A $200 million dollar investment should be thinking about doing more than giving me another day in the life of the amazing Tony Stark especially when you consider the future of the character moving forward.  Phase 2 is in like a lamb, and it is left to Joss Whedon to insure that it goes out like a lion.

Don Cheadle Might Be Appearing In Captain America 2 & The Avengers 2

We know that War Machine missed out on The Avengers movie because he was busy in China, but did make his way back for Shawarma.

So will Don Cheadle be appearing in The Avengers 2?

It seems at least there are talks going on as the Iron Patriot recently spoke to the Collider mentioning it.

I know that [there are] conversations that have been happening, so we’ll see what happens.  If that’s able to happen and it makes sense for the story, I’m sure it’ll happen, and if not it’s fine.  It has to work within the world and sort of the mythology of the whole Marvel universe.

Don Cheadle is also asked about possibly appearing in Captain America 2, with the actor suggesting at least a cameo as he stated he will be visiting the set — and maybe with War Machine.

I think I’m gonna go to the set, so maybe if my suit is in the trunk I’ll just walk on.

The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014 and Ant-Man on November 6, 2015..

Iron Man 3 Cast Interview Reveals Pepper Potts, Iron Patriot & More Spoilers

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6250:]]An Iron Man 3 cast interview has been released by Marvel Studios revealing some specific details and spoilers about the film.

If you have been following all the Iron Man 3 news and rumors, nothing really comes as much of a surprise.

Spoilers below (via SHH).

Kevin Feige mentions the first act of the film with the destruction of Tony Stark’s mansion, as seen in the trailer, and the introduction of the sidekick (as some are referring to him as).

“You’ve seen in the trailers that there’s an attack on Tony’s house. So by the end of the first act of ‘Iron Man 3,’ his house is gone. His technology is gone. All he has is a barely functioning, prototype suit that, soon after he escapes from the house that’s destroyed, is not functioning at all. So Tony finds himself in the middle of the United States of America, in Rose Hill, Tennessee, completely out of his element. A guy who lives in Malibu and goes to Monaco and gallivants in Manhattan in the middle of Rose Hill, Tennessee, with a suit not working, doing an investigation about the villain known as the Mandarin, to try to figure out where he is.  Tony believes there are clues here that are going to lead him to find where the Mandarin is, so he drags the broken suit into a shed that he finds and takes an axe and opens it up. It turns out that he is in the little workshop of this young boy named Harley.”

Gwyneth Paltrow confirms that she dons an armor in Iron Man 3; in the comic books it’s knowns as Rescue.

“I didn’t mind wearing the suit at all. I thought it was light and perfectly comfortable and my children thought I was extremely cool. They were here on a day where I was in it, so they were trying it on and when my son saw me in the suit, he had the biggest eyes, so it was definitely worth it.”

We learn the origin of the Iron Man 3 Iron Patriot suit. Now this is interesting as a previous batch of “huge” Iron Man 3 spoilers seemed to confirm similar. However, it’s not that far of a stretch to assume as such.

What we learn in the beginning of ‘Iron Man 3’ is that they’ve made an arrangement. Tony has let Rhodey have this suit; he’s using it in conjunction with the US Government. So, at the beginning of ‘Iron Man 3,’ we see that the President has asked Rhodey as War Machine to get a new paint job and take on the new moniker of the Iron Patriot in order to do American business and be the American hero as opposed to The Avengers or Iron Man himself, who is sort of a separate entity… In a way it becomes a buddy action film, in the third act, where they team up. Neither of them have a suit at a certain point in the movie and they really team up in a great, sort of old- fashioned action movie way and Don and Robert have such an amazing rapport.”

We also get some specific info on Guy Pearce’s character, Aldrich Killian.

“Killian heads a brain-trust organization called AIM that is developing Extremis, which is something that taps into human DNA and is able to reprogram it and regenerate limbs and enhance strength and cure wounds. But it also could change the whole world, which is what Killian intends to do with it.”

Here’s a blurb about the Mandarin and how he is using various propaganda to promote his agendas. Note: Recall the Captain America tattoo as well as the helmet.

“Shane Black had an idea of making him somebody whose background is unknown. We don’t know where he’s from at first, but he seems to be some kind of military officer that has gone off the reservation. He is starting to pull all of this iconography and symbolism from other cultures to his own ends to use them as symbols to pervert the symbol of the United States.  He utilizes the moniker of the Mandarin and robes with dragons on them and uses South American sort of guerilla tactics to create this aura of fear of his terror organization. The Mandarin is sort of a very frightening, modern-day terrorist who has taken terror motifs from all over the world to use to his own ends. It was a very cool and relevant and scary idea.”

And the first set images to have hit the net when Iron Man 3 began filming were of an air plane disaster rescue. It’s for Air Force One, and here’s the info on that.

Our writers had a great idea which played to the theme of putting Tony in a situation that you don’t know how he’s going to get out of. Shane and Drew’s idea was basically to throw 13 people out of an airplane and have Jarvis tell Tony he can only carry four of them. So how in the world, as they’re plummeting to their death, is Iron Man going to be able to save them all?

“And they came up with this notion of Barrel of Monkeys, this Hasbro game, where you connect all the monkeys together and see how many of these little plastic monkeys you can latch together by their fingers. And Tony begins to fly down and begins to grab onto people and tells those people to grab onto the next person. And suddenly with this great show of teamwork you have 13 people all latched onto each other with Iron Man blowing his repulsors to stop their fall. “

Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert DowneyJr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy pearce and James Badge Dale.
