Team Cap or Team Tony? It’s becoming as defining a question as Coke or Pepsi, or Beatles or Rolling Stones. In today’s Movie Morsels, we draw your attention to some new promo videos that may help you decide your answer, or at least get you even more stoked for Captain America: Civil War! Plus, the latest on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Finding Dory, and more!
Captain America: Civil War
In anticipation of today’s new full Captain America: Civil War trailer, the good folks at Marvel have unleashed two new videos featuring the lineup of heroes on both sides of this tragic conflict. They look more than a little like TV football promos. Unfortunately we can’t actually embed these videos in Movie Morsels (damn you, Facebook!), but you can check out the campaign for Team Captain America—consisting of Cap himself (Chris Evans), the Falcon (Anthony Mackie), the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan)—here, while Team Iron Man—composed of ol’ shellhead (Robert Downey Jr.), the Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), the Vision (Paul Bettany), the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Warhead (Don Cheadle)—can be seen here. Will the best team win… or will both teams lose?! We’ll find out when Captain America: Civil War opens on May 6.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
In other Marvel Cinematic Universe news… James Gunn continues to be every fan’s best pal, sharing yet another behind-the-scenes image of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast, this time with friends and foes sharing the spotlight. (“High on believing. The Guardians of the Galaxy and frenemies,” writes Gunn.) His latest photo includes a curiously non-bald Karen Gillan (don’t worry; as the filmmaker assures us in the comments, Nebula will still be bald), Zoe Saldana assuming the role of Rocket, and what I believe is our first photo of actress Pom Klementieff (a.k.a. Mantis, one of my favorite ’70s Marvel heroes) on the film’s Atlanta set…
*Spoiler alert* Rumors continue to circulate that Sylvester Stallone will appear in Guardians 2, with the actor sighted leaving an Atlanta hotel last week with what looked like a script in hand. But who would Sly play in the production? On Location Vacations (per Coming Soon) claims they’ve heard the actor will appear in the film wearing a costume similar to that of Judge Dredd, whom he played in the 1995 megabomb. Hmmm…
The world’s favorite short-term-memory-loss sufferer swims into theaters in the tile role of Finding Dory, the Finding Nemo sequel arriving on June 17. And Disney-Pixar has just issued a new poster featuring the lovable Pacific regal blue tang voiced by Ellen DeGeneres…
Ghostbusters: The Animated Movie
Sony’s animated Ghostbusters movie has finally nabbed itself a director: Aussie filmmaker Fletcher Moules, who helmed the popular Clash of Clans commercials. No word yet on which ‘busters will be featured in the film, but original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman is producing.
Finally today, we have an international trailer for Midnight Special, director Jeff Nichols’ sci-fi thriller starring Michael Shannon as a dad out to protect his son from those hunting him for his superpowers. Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst, Joel Edgerton, Sam Shepard, and newcomer Jaeden Lieberher also star…
