Premise

Following the events of The Avengers, Steve Rogers resides peacefully in Washington, D.C., struggling to adapt to contemporary society. However, after a S.H.I.E.L.D. compatriot is assailed, Steve becomes entangled in a mystery that may endanger the globe. Together with the Black Widow, Captain America attempts to uncover the growing machination while fending off hired hit men. When the entire scheme is discovered, Captain America and the Black Widow must recruit the aid of the Falcon and soon encounter an unanticipated and powerful adversary — the Winter Soldier.

Cast

A World War II veteran who was enhanced to the peak of human physicality by an experimental serum, frozen in suspended animation, and is now struggling to adjust to the modern world.Producer Kevin Feige said that Rogers reluctantly remains with S.H.I.E.L.D. after the events of The Avengers “because he has nowhere else to go… Things were black and white back then [in World War II], and now it’s hard to know who the bad guys are. We wanted to play on that a little with Cap being uncomfortable with the way S.H.I.E.L.D., and in particular Nick Fury, operates.” Describing his character’s adjustment to the modern world, Evans said, “It’s not so much about his shock with [technology]… It’s more about the societal differences. He’s gone from the ’40s to today; he comes from a world where people were a little more trusting, the threats not as deep. Now, it’s harder to tell who’s right and wrong. Actions you take to protect people from threats could compromise liberties and privacy. That’s tough for Steve to swallow.”
A highly trained spy working for S.H.I.E.L.D., who partners with Rogers.Screenwriter Christopher Markus said that Black Widow was a “great contrast” to Captain America, describing her as “incredibly modern, not very reverent, and just very straightforward whereas Steve is, you know a man from the 40s. He’s not a boy scout, but he is reserved and has a moral center, whereas her moral center moves.” When asked about Natasha’s relationship with Steve, Johansson said “Their working relationship becomes a more intimate friendship. They have some unexpected similarities – they both have their guard up, they have trust issues, and they’ve also both been working for ‘the man’ for their entire career. Through this unexpected friendship that forms, they both start to question what they want.”
Steve Rogers’ best friend, who is turned into a brainwashed assassin. Kevin Feige stated that Bucky’s role in the film will adhere closely to Ed Brubaker‘s Winter Soldier storyline in the comics. To prepare for the role, Stan endured five months of physical training and did historical research. “I dove into the whole cold war thing,” said Stan. “I looked at the KGB. I looked at all kinds of spy movies, and all kinds of documentaries about that time, and what it was about. I grabbed anything from that time period. Anything about brainwashing.”
A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with the ability to fly and speak telepathically with birds. About the role, Mackie said “I’m playing the Falcon. He’s this guy in Harlem who moved to California and became a drug dealer. His plane crashed, and he was genetically altered, he can fly, and has telepathic powers. He’s the first African-American superhero. It makes me feel all the work I’ve done has been paying off. I have a son, nephews and nieces, and I love the idea that they can dress up as the Falcon on Halloween. They now have someone they can idolize. That’s a huge honor for me.”Mackie stated that Marvel did not let him read a script before signing on, and that he would spend five months doing two-a-day workouts and eating an 11,000 calorie per day diet to get into shape for the role. Mackie also revealed that Wilson is “a really smart guy who went through major military training and becomes a tactical leader.”
An agent with S.H.I.E.L.D. who works closely with Nick Fury.
A S.H.I.E.L.D. operative.
A neighbor of Captain America’s who initially goes under the name of “Kate”. VanCamp says her character takes an “interesting turn” as the plot develops and that this movie is “just the beginning for the character.”
An officer with the Strategic Scientific Reserve and former love interest of Captain America.
A mercenary and a master of the French form of kickboxing known as savateSt-Pierre, a UFC welterweight champion, elaborated, “My character is a French mercenary, speaks French, a martial arts expert of savate, [and an] Olympic lifting champion. [He is] a little bit like a guy who can jump really high and stuff… he’s called a leaper. The character fit me well. “
A senior leader within S.H.I.E.L.D. and a member of the World Security Council. He is also an old comrade of Nick Fury.Redford was cast in part as a homage to his roles in 1970s thrillers such as Three Days of the Condor
The director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Regarding Fury’s questionable code of ethics, Feige said, “Fury certainly rides a line, sort of rides the shadows. He has, I think, lied to every character in every movie, though always for seemingly for the good.””Almost everything that comes out of Nick Fury’s mouth is a lie in some sense,” said Jackson. “He has to ask, is he even lying to himself, too? He has a very good idea of what’s going on but his paranoia keeps him from believing some of it.”

Additionally, Toby Jones,Maximiliano Hernández,Dominic Cooperand Garry Shandling reprise their roles from previous films as Arnim Zola, Jasper Sitwell, Howard Stark and Senator Stern, respectively. Chin Han, Jenny Agutter (who previously appeared in The Avengers as a member of the World Security Council), Alan Dale and Bernard White have been cast as members of Pierce’s S.H.I.E.L.D. team.Stan Lee will make a cameo appearance.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST 2014

Having this viral site http://www.trask-industries.com for the upcoming movie is a brilliant move by the people behind the X-Men franchise. At least there’s a filler for the void while waiting for the movie to be shown on May of 2014. They should have at least put more promotional gimmickry out there and to post more posters in the succeeding months for the people anticipating the movie such as myself so as not to lose the interests but rather build it up until the movie is released. I must say that it’s a great site because the people are being introduced to the Sentinels and what Trask Industry’s involvement on it. Great job incorporating the little snippet of  Trask Industry at the mid credit scene on the movie “The Wolverine”.  I am very much excited for this upcoming movie…

About the film:

X-Men: Days of Future Past is an upcoming American superhero film co-written, produced and directed by Bryan Singer and featuring the X-Men characters appearing in Marvel Comics. It is intended to be the seventh installment in the X-Men film series. The screenplay is written by Simon Kinberg, Matthew Vaughn, and Jane Goldman, with Singer writing the story. The film is based on the 1981 Uncanny X-Men storyline “Days of Future Past” by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. It is the third X-Men film directed by Singer after 2000’s X-Men and 2003’s X2.

Days of Future Past acts as a sequel to both 2011’s X-Men: First Class and 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand 

xmenfirstclassbg x_men_three_ver1

Featuring cast members from both movies and stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, and Daniel Cudmore return from the X-Men: The Last Stand, while James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Lucas Till return from X-Men: First Class. Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto, Evan Peters and Josh Helman round out the film’s principal cast. Principal photography began in April 2013 in Montreal, Canada. The film is being shot in 3D.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled to be released on May 23, 2014.

Based from the comic book with the same title, “Days of Future Past” is a popular storyline in the Marvel Comics comic book The Uncanny X-Men issues #141 and #142, published in 1981. It deals with a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps. An adult Kate Pryde transfers her mind into her younger self, the present-day Kitty Pryde, who brings the X-Men to prevent a fatal moment in history which triggers anti-mutant hysteria.

The storyline was very popular at the time and was produced during the franchise‘s rapid rise to popularity due to the writer/artist team of Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Terry Austin. As a result of the storyline’s popularity, the dark future seen in the story has been revisited numerous times. The first issue of this storyline was voted the 25th greatest Marvel Comic of all time by fans in 2001.

But in this adaptation, it’s not Kitty Pryde who went back to the past but Wolverine… probably just to fix the timeline since Kitty Pryde is not born yet then at that time. So it’s more realistic to put Wolverine in that scenario since he hasn’t aged rapidly.

X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

This reality in which the story occurs is designated Earth-811 in the Marvel Multiverse.

PLOT:

The storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men’s failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men. She succeeds in her mission and returns to the future, but despite her success, the future timeline still exists as an alternative timeline rather than as the actual future. (The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe: Alternate Universes 2005 gave the numerical designation of “Days of Future Past” Earth as Earth-811).

Aftermath

Rachel Summers, who was a key player in the original storyline, traveled through time from this alternative future, Earth-811, to the present day and joined the X-Men. Nimrod, the “ultimate Sentinel,” followed her to the present and became a foe of the X-Men and the Hellfire Club. Another supervillain, Ahab, later followed her to the present in the Days of Future Present crossover.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,  is an upcoming American television series created for ABC by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, based on the Marvel Comics organization S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division). The series is produced by Marvel Television, and is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, sharing continuity with the films in that franchise. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D revolves around the character of Phil Coulson, with Clark Gregg reprising the role. A pilot, written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, and directed by Joss Whedon, was given the green light in late 2012 and filmed in early 2013. The series was officially ordered on May 10, 2013 and is scheduled to premiere on September 24, 2013 on ABC Channel.

Agent Phil Coulson puts together a small team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to handle strange new cases.  Each case will test the team in cooperation and ingenuity as they try to work together figuring out newly emerging superhuman individuals in the world.

At the 2013 South by Southwest festival, Joss Whedon confirmed that Coulson is alive in the series, despite his apparent death at the hands of Loki in Marvel’s The Avengers. When describing his character’s return from the dead, Gregg said, “When Joss described to me the mystery…and the complexity and the unanswered questions about Phil Coulson standing there trying to deal with this, I found it so fascinating and so true to the world of the comics and mythology in general as I understand them that I was immediately in.”

  • AgentsOfShield (2) Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson: An agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. who oversees many of the division’s field operations. The character will headline the series.

Plot:

One year after the events of The AvengersThor battles to save the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. A primeval race led by Malekith, who is out for revenge, intends to plunge the universe into darkness. Confronted by an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot overcome, Thor must reunite with Jane Foster and set out on a dangerous journey that will force him to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Cast:

Thor Thor 1

Chris Hemsworth as Thor: The crown prince of Asgard, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name. Hemsworth stated that the film addresses unresolved issues regarding Thor’s relationships from previous films, “For Thor and Jane, there are some unanswered questions now, since obviously he didn’t stop in and catch up with her in The Avengers. Thor might have some explaining to do in this one. And with Loki, we get down to the major bones of our conflict with everything that’s come from Thor to Avengers to now.”

Thor Jane 2

Natalie Portman as Jane Foster: An astrophysicist and Thor’s love interest, who is brought from Earth to Asgard by Thor for safeguarding when her life is in danger. Producer Kevin Feige said, “While Thor was a fish out of water on Earth in the first two films (Thor and The Avengers), this time Jane is very much a fish out of water in Asgard.”

Thor Loki 3

Tom Hiddleston as Loki: Thor’s adoptive brother and nemesis, based on the deity of the same name, who Thor seeks for assistance against the Dark Elves. On where he wishes to take the character in the film, Hiddleston said, “I’d like to take [Loki] to his absolute rock bottom. I’d like to see him yield, essentially, to his darkest instincts. Then, having hit rock bottom, maybe come back up. I think the fascination for me about playing Loki is that, in the history of the mythology and the comic books and the Scandinavian myths, is he’s constantly dancing on this fault line of the dark side and redemption.”

Thor Erik 4

Stellan Skarsgård as Dr. Erik Selvig: Foster’s mentor and fellow scientist.

Thor Heimdall 5

Idris Elba as Heimdall: The all-seeing, all-hearing Asgardian sentry of the bifröst bridge, based on the mythological deity of the same name. Elba said he has a larger role in the sequel, “In the new film we’re going to get to know Heimdall the Asgardian a bit better, and we’re going to get to know Asgard a bit better. I can’t say too much, but the expansion of Thor in his world is going to be huge. My part was very small and functional in the first film”.

Thor Malekith 6

Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed: The ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim.

Thor Algrim Kurse 7

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Algrim the Strong / Kurse: A Dark Elf, who is coerced by Malekith to fight Thor. Akinnuoye-Agbaje described Kurse as “an amalgamation of a bull and a lava-like creature. He has very animalistic tendencies but with this insatiable and unstoppable power. As an actor, that’s one of the hardest things to embody. You have to realize you are probably the most powerful thing you could imagine. And you have to be that. You can’t pretend, so that when you face Thor, it’s real.” Akinnuoye-Agbaje stated the role required three hours of make-up a day and had to put on heavy duty prosthetics explaining, “The outfit weighed about 40 pounds. I’m sure there will be a certain amount of CGI but a good 80% was me in that suit.”

Thor Darcy 8

Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis: Foster’s research assistant. Her role in the film was expanded from the comic relief sidekick role she played in the first Thor film.

Thor Volstagg 9

Ray Stevenson as Volstagg: A member of the Warriors Three; a group of three Asgardian adventurers who are among Thor’s closest comrades. Known for both his hearty appetite and wide girth his role in this film, Stevenson said, “Volstagg is struggling, he has a brood, they [the Warriors Three] are fighting for Earth and home as much as for the idea of Asgard itself. That’s where he has trouble explaining, “He’s all too aware of how potentially threatening this new enemy is on both the home front and the battlefield.”

Thor Fandral 10

Zachary Levi as Fandral: A member of the Warriors Three, characterized as an irrepressible swashbuckler and romantic. Levi replaced Joshua Dallas in the role due to his commitment on Once Upon a Time. Ironically, Levi was originally up for the role in the first film but had to bow out due to his commitment on Chuck. Levi compared the character to Flynn Rider, the character he played in the animated feature, Tangled, “Fandral is a little similar to Rider in some ways… He’s like this lothario. He’s like Errol Flynn. He loves ladies, as do I”.

Thor Hogun 11

Tadanobu Asano as Hogun: A member of the Warriors Three, primarily identified by his grim demeanor.

Thor Sif 12

Jaimie Alexander as Sif: An Asgardian warrior, Thor’s childhood friend and Jane Foster’s romantic rival, based on the deity of the same name. Alexander said there is more character development for Sif and the film explores the Sif-Thor relationship. Alexander suffered a severe back injury while on the set. About the injury, she said, “It was raining, it was dark outside, it was like 5 in the morning — and I went down a metal staircase and slipped and slipped a disc in my thoracic spine and chipped 11 of my vertebrae. I knocked my left shoulder out of place and tore my rhomboid on my right side… It took me out of filming for a month”.

Thor Frigga 13

Rene Russo as Frigga: The wife of Odin, queen of Asgard, stepmother of Thor and adoptive mother of Loki, based on the mythological deity of the same name. Russo said that her role was expanded and explores Frigga’s relationship with Loki, “You know, they cut me down in the first film. Kenneth Branagh sent me a nice note, because he understood, he’s an actor. You move on, what are you going to do? But I think they’re going to need a good mom in the next film. Loki needs his mom. I have a lot of compassion for Loki. But we might have to have a conversation about what he just did”.

Thor Odin 14

Anthony Hopkins as Odin: The king of Asgard, father of Thor, and adoptive father of Loki, based on the deity of the same name, who disapproves of Thor’s relationship with Jane Foster.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is an upcoming 2013 American fantasy-adventure film based on the Rick Riordan novel of the same name. It is a sequel to the 2010 film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and continues the adventures of Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) and his friends, as they search for the Golden Fleece at the titular Sea of Monsters to save an ailing magical tree that protects their home from foes. The film is scheduled to be released on August 7, 2013. Available in 2D and 3D in all cinemas and cineplexes.

Plot:

Percy Jackson is having nightmares about a cyclops chasing Grover Underwood. At school, a group of Laistrygonian giants attack Percy, but he is saved by his half-brother Tyson (a cyclops disguised as a human). Annabeth Chase takes Percy and Tyson to Camp Half-Blood, but they arrive to find the camp under attack by two bronze Colchis bulls. Thalia’s tree (which protects the borders of Camp Half-Blood) has been poisoned, leaving the camp vulnerable to enemy attacks. After Clarisse la Rue and Tyson defeat the bulls, Chiron the centaur is suspected of poisoning the tree (largely because of his familial connection to the titan Kronos) and is fired from the camp. The demigod Tantalus is brought from his prison in Tartarus to be Chiron’s replacement.

Percy has another dream about Grover. This time, Grover explains a cyclops named Polyphemus is holding him captive in the “Sea of Monsters”, and he is talking to Percy through an empathy link, allowing them to communicate through dreams. When he awakens, Percy tells Annabeth about his dreams, and she deduces Grover may have found the Golden Fleece, which can cure Thalia’s poisoned tree. They ask Tantalus to send someone on a quest to find the Golden Fleece, and he sends Clarisse. Percy goes to a nearby beach to clear his head, and he is approached by the messenger god Hermes, who urges him to search for the fleece as well. He summons Annabeth and Tyson to aid Percy on his quest, and gives them a thermos full of wind and three duffel bags containing clothes, money and vitamins, while Percy’s father Poseidon sends three hippocampi (a marine creature which is equine in appearance) to take them across the sea.
