Star Wars: Rogue One Trailer Rumored Attached To Captain America: Civil War

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:23682:]]

In what’s probably a no-brainer, it’s being rumored the Star Wars: Rogue One trailer will be attached to Captain America: Civil War.

Actually, the second teaser for The Force Awakens was attached to The Avengers 2, so it’s possible Disney may release the first Star Wars: Rogue One teaser prior to that (maybe during the Super Bowl?).

Slash Film has also rounded up a batch of Star Wars: Rogue One rumors which includes:

• Mads Mikkelsen‘s character is the Imperial scientist chiefly responsible for getting the final Death Star fully functional (via Making Star Wars). 

Mads Mikkelsen (Galen appears to be his name in the film) is kind of the key to the film in a way. He is a scientist that took over the Geonosian Death Star project. He solved several of the flaws the Empire could not and is sort of a revered person in the Empire for his contributions. However, Mikkelsen’s character is a Robert Oppenheimer-type character. Oppenheimer helped design the atomic bomb only to say, “Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” The guilt “Galen” feels for his contributions to the Empire become too much and he defects, attempting to make things right. In order to do this, he enlists the help of his only daughter….

• Mikkelsen’s daughter may be Felicity Jones’ character:  teams up with a group of rebels (and bounty hunters) to destroy what her father built.

Harry Potter‘s Guy Henry is believed to be playing an Imperial Officer (via Jedi News).

• Possible scene description with Bounty Hunters:

On the street, two men walk in front of the wreckage of the black-and-white X-wing fighter. It isn’t clear if they were a part of the crash or if it was just a part of their entrance. The first man has a long rifle that in spirit seems to resemble Doc Brown’s riffle from Back to the Future Part III. He has a black leather trench coat on. His mask is dull red and the visor is like a cross between Kylo Ren and and the Imperial guards from Return of the Jedi. The other man has a brown trench coat and a really big rifle with a stock that reminds me of the guns used on Hoth by the rebels in The Empire Strikes Back. If I had to guess, I would say these two are probably bounty hunters or two of the coolest extras of all time.

“Star Wars: Rogue One” has a December 16, 2016 release directed by Gareth Edwards starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, who plays a performance-capture character in Rogue One, and Riz Ahmed.

Synopsis:

Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.

Mads Mikkelsen Revealed To Be Doctor Strange Movie Villain

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:23500:]]

Following the the first look at Bendict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, as well as details on Rachel McAdams’ character, now it’s been revealed that Mad Mikkelsen is playing the big bad of the movie.

While the character hasn’t been specifically named, Doctor Strange executive producer Stephen Strange and Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige told EW.com the following:

Stephen Broussard:

Mads is playing our main villain.

I’ve seen lots of names thrown around. No one has quite picked the name that we’ve chosen for him. It would be fun to conceal that, if we can.

Kevin Feige:

“We will take audiences through sort of a guide to the multiverse, other dimensions, and there are amazing things out there — wonders that are going to be hopefully visually extremely interesting and unique to this movie. But there are also very scary things in these other dimensions. (The article notes Feige said it is the “job of sorcerers like Strange and The Ancient One, played by Tilda Swinton, to protect humanity from such ‘scary things.’”

Mads’ character is a sorcerer who breaks off into his own sect. [He] believes that the Ancient One is just protecting her own power base and that the world may be better off if we were to allow some of these other things through.

“Doctor Strange” has a November 4, 2016 release directed by Scott Derrickson.

Synopsis:

“Doctor Strange” follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.

“Doctor Strange” is the latest film in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Phase 3’s goal—over the course of four years and nine films—is to introduce audiences to new heroes and continue the adventures of fan favorites.

Mads Mikkelsen Bows Out Of Thor 2 For Hannibal

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1757:]]Mads Mikkelsen was in talks with Disney and Marvel Studios back in late May to play the villain in Thor 2.

But now it seems that won’t happen as Mads Mikkelsen will be taking a role on NBC’s new Hannibal series.

Mikkelsen tells the website Zoomin Movies (Via ThePlaylist), “Yeah, that’s not happening unfortunately. I had a meeting with them, but they were a little too late. And then ‘Hannibal’ came in, and everything just came in the same period, so now it’s not happening.”
