It's a big friggin' deal when The Sundance Kid decides he's gonna star in your movie. The name Robert Redford in and of itself is synonymous with awesome, so the man responsible for such repute is an absolute force of filmmaking who can pretty much do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. Robert Ruddy Redford, ya'll.
So, when he decided to sign on for movie two of the "Captain America" franchise, which was at first — let's face it — but a fragment of Marvel's ultimate "The Avengers" ambitions, we were all like "Whaaaaaaaat?!" With the sequel set to follow Cappy (Chris Evans)'s international tiff with the now-Soviet-friendly Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), how could they possibly make a suitable place for the likes of R.R.?

This week: The long-delayed "Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One — Avengers Assembled" box set with "Marvel's The Avengers," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger," "Iron Man," "Iron Man 2" and "The Incredible Hulk" plus geek-worthy collectibles is finally here.
They are two of America's greatest icons: Captain America and Robert Redford. One is a costumed champion of liberty. The other is a square-jawed, blue-eyed idol to millions. But ask yourself this: Have you ever seen them together at the same time?
It makes you wonder, right? But while it might seem like Robert Redford actually is Captain America, it turns out that they are different people — and they may indeed be about to appear side-by-side, as according to the The Hollywood Reporter, Redford is close to signing a deal to appear in the 2014 superhero sequel "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."

Can anyone do Pixar movies as well as Pixar?
Sure, lots of studios have tried to imitate that patented Pixar magic over the last couple decades, to varying degrees of success. But now we're about to find out first hand whether anyone can really copy Pixar's style and heart, as Disney has released the first teaser trailer for their "Cars" spinoff "Planes." And Pixar pretty much has nothing to do with it. Get More »

There's a certain magical quality to modern day drugs. The tiniest prescribed pill can cure a multitude of medical problems, whilst the tiniest illegally-purchased pill can create the illusion you have cured a multitude of non-medical problems. So it's no wonder Hollywood loves injecting cool ideas about what sorts of human ailments — both physical and spiritual — fictional drugs might be able to treat.
In "Dredd 3D," the latest redux of comic book hero and one-man-justice-system, Judge Dredd, a narcotic named Slo-Mo has hit the streets, allowing its users to experience reality in slow motion (in the future, drug names are very literal). And this got us jonesing for a list of our favorite movie pharmaceuticals we dare you to "just say no" to. Get More »
[From MTV News] It's not quite "The Avengers," but you can bank on the fact that a colorful assortment of heroes and villains will collide when "Captain America" returns for its 2014 sequel, titled "The Winter Soldier."
Based on a run of comic books written by noir-minded writer Ed Brubaker, the "Winter Soldier" story deals heavily with the apparent resurrection of Bucky Barnes, played in "Captain America: The First Avenger" by Sebastian Stan. In the comics, Bucky resurfaces in the form of a brainwashed Russian assassin known as the Winter Soldier, and it's up to his old partner and friend Steve Rogers to bring him back to the side of the angels. Exactly how faithful the Marvel Studios film plans to stick to that source material remains to be seen, but actor Chris Evans insists that the seeds for "Winter Soldier" were planted long ago.
"There were always hints at that," Evans told MTV News about the "Cap" sequel during a Toronto Film Fest interview about "The Iceman," his new hit-man biopic featuring "Man of Steel" villain Michael Shannon. "The best thing about [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige is he's a fan. He's not just a businessman, he's a rabid comic book fan. Even during the first 'Captain America,' well before 'The Avengers,' there were whispers of ['Winter Soldier'] being the sequel. So I'm excited to tackle that."
To find out why he's so excited, head to MTV.com.
Hot on the heels of Marvel's announcement at Comic-Con over the weekend that the upcoming "Captain America 2" had been renamed "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" comes this latest bombshell: Anthony Mackie is in talks to join the cast — and he'll be playing the high-flying Falcon.

If there was one victor among the movies paneling at San Diego Comic-Con this year, it'd have to be … Marvel. Or was it "Man of Steel"? Or maybe "The Hobbit"?
Another Con's in the can, and we've emerged with new intel on a handful of high-profile mega-movies. There weren't necessarily any groundbreaking casting announcements this year, but first footage from movies like the new Superman flick, "Oz: The Great and Powerful," "Pacific Rim" and "Elysium" had fans and bloggers buzzing big time.
Check out the biggest movie scoops below. What we should add, #16: Getting in line at 7 a.m. does not guarantee you entry into the con's marquee venue (Hall H). Not even for a 6 p.m. panel. And yep, we learned that the hard way. – By Bryan Enk and Kevin Polowy
The minute "The Avengers" ended, all I could say was "MORE!" Actually, that's not true – first I asked my friends if they wanted a shawarma, then I shouted "MORE!" (This, by the way, is how you end up paying for two shawarmas when you only wanted one.)
A few days after "Avengers'" massive opening weekend came the "no duh" announcement that a sequel is in the works. What you don't know is that Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, and Mick E. Mowse, head of Walt Disney, actually plan to consult with me, Chief Executive of Filmed Entertainment at Planet Fanboy LLC, on their upcoming slate. Get More »
