The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has been released! It will hit theaters May 4th. Check it out below.

VANITY FAIR – On a sweltering October weekend, the largest-ever group of Marvel superheroes and friends gathered just outside of Atlanta for a top-secret assignment. Eighty-three of the famous faces who have brought Marvel’s comic-book characters to life over the past decade mixed and mingled—Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk, bonded with Vin Diesel, the voice of Groot, the monosyllabic sapling from Guardians of the Galaxy. Angela Bassett, mother to Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, flew through hurricane-like conditions to report for duty alongside Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brie Larson, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Laurence Fishburne, and Stan Lee, the celebrated comic-book writer and co-creator of Iron Man, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men.

Their mission: to strike a heroic pose to commemorate 10 years of unprecedented moviemaking success. Marvel Studios, which kicked things off with Iron Man in 2008, has released 17 films that collectively have grossed more than $13 billion at the global box office; 5 more movies are due out in the next two years. The sprawling franchise has resuscitated careers (Downey), has minted new stars (Tom Hiddleston), and increasingly attracts an impressive range of A-list talent, from art-house favorites (Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in Doctor Strange) to Hollywood icons (Anthony Hopkins and Robert Redford) to at least three handsome guys named Chris (Hemsworth, Evans, and Pratt). The wattage at the photo shoot was so high that Ant-Man star Michael Douglas—Michael Douglas!—was collecting autographs. (Photographer Jason Bell shot Vanity Fair’s own Marvel portfolio shortly afterward.)

But it wasn’t Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury or even Chris Evans’s Captain America who assembled Earth’s mightiest heroes. They came for Kevin Feige, the unassuming man in a black baseball cap who took Marvel Studios from an underdog endeavor with a roster of B-list characters to a cinematic empire that is the envy of every other studio in town. Feige’s innovative, comic-book-based approach to blockbuster moviemaking—having heroes from one film bleed into the next—has changed not only the way movies are made but also pop culture at large. Fans can’t get enough of a world where space-hopping Guardians of the Galaxy might turn up alongside earthbound Avengers, or Doctor Strange and Black Panther could cross paths via a mind-bending rift in the space-time continuum. Other studios, most notably Warner Bros., with the Justice League, have tried to create their own web of interconnected characters. Why have so many failed to achieve Marvel’s heights? “Simple,” said Joe Russo, co-director of Avengers 3 and 4. “They don’t have a Kevin.”

Before Feige, Marvel Studios wasn’t even making its own films. Created in 1993 as Marvel Films, the movie arm of the comics company simply licensed its characters to other studios, earning most of its money from merchandise sales. (The popular 2002 Sam Raimi-directed Spider-Man movie, for example, was made by Sony’s Columbia Pictures.) Feige was part of the team that pushed for the studio to take full creative control of its library of beloved characters, a risky move at the time. “For us old-timers—me and Robert [Downey] and Gwyneth [Paltrow] and Kevin—it felt like we were the upper-classmen,” Jon Favreau, director of the first two Iron Man movies, told me shortly after the photo shoot. “We were emotional . . . thinking about how precarious it all felt in the beginning.”

THE GUARDIAN – In family drama Gifted, Captain America star Chris Evans is caught up in a very different battle to his usual superhero smackdowns. He plays Frank, uncle and guardian to Mary, a prodigiously talented seven-year-old. When Frank’s estranged mother tries to take Mary to live with her and get special tutoring, a vicious custody fight ensues. Evans talks about what motivates his character, and the larger conflicts currently dividing America.
Gifted is released in UK cinemas on Friday

RTE – Avengers star Chris Evans has told RTÉ Entertainment that he does not know if he would be interested in reprising his superhero role as Captain America ten years down the line for a gritty movie in the vein of Hugh Jackman’s recent X-Men spin-off Logan.

Evans, who is back on Irish cinema screens from this weekend in the family drama Gifted, is due to finish up his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the two-part Avengers: Infinity War in April 2018 and April 2019.

Asked by RTÉ Entertainment if returning as an older, wearier Captain America was part of his career plan, Evans admitted that it was “tough to say for sure”.

“I mean, I love the character,” he continued. “I love my time in the Marvel world. And Marvel is certainly the ‘Midas touch machine’ – everything they do is quality.

“So I would never question whether or not it would be of a calibre that I would be interested in. My creative appetites kind of change with the tides, so who knows what I’ll be feeling down the road.”

Gifted has been described as Kramer-vs-Kramer-meets-Good Will Hunting and follows Evans’ odd job man Frank as he battles to raise pint-sized genius Mary (Mckenna Grace) as a normal child.

When put to Evans that the film feels very much like an actor looking to life after Marvel, he replied: “That’s never the intention. I don’t really approach my career in terms of how I’m perceived or what people will expect of me. I follow my creative appetite – whatever I feel like pursuing that’s what I pursue.”

RADIO TIMES – In a world of leaks, huge anticipation and rabid online fanbases it’s perhaps unsurprising that Captain America star Chris Evans likes to keep a lid on his upcoming appearances in Marvel’s superhero movie universe, with the US star remaining tight-lipped about his role in Avengers: Infinity War and other Marvel movies.

“I think Marvel has like a sniper on me at all times,” Evans told RadioTimes.com. “You know that.

“You’ve done enough of these interviews to know that I can’t answer anything having to do with Marvel!”

However, there was one thing Evans WAS willing to admit – just how little he knew about one of the films he’d be appearing in soon, specifically Tom Holland-starring reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming.

You see, for months many fans have assumed that Evans’ Captain America would play a decent-sized role in the upcoming movie, with the actor said to have been filming with Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr in Atlanta and a trailer teasing his appearance by including a pre-recorded school gym class video featuring the WWII hero.

But now Evans has told us that we won’t be seeing Steve Rogers fight villains or lay down some wisdom for Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Homecoming after all – because he actually only filmed that video cameo and not much else.

“Spider-Man? I have no idea what it’s about,” Evans said. “I really don’t. I didn’t read the script, I did that [cameo]…recently!

“I have literally NO idea what it’s about. I have no idea.”

Now of course it could be that Evans is lying and Captain America will play a more substantial role in the new film – but given how prominent Downey Jr’s Tony Stark has been in recent trailers, it’s looking increasingly likely that Cap is tapped out for this one.
