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."

It's a mad world when Chris Evans plays a contract killer whose front is an ice cream truck.
It's fun to see Captain American play a long-haired bad guy in "The Iceman," but it's the future General Zod, Michael Shannon, who takes center stage in this true-crime thriller about Richard Kuklinski, the notorious mob assassin who also happened to be a loving father and faithful husband.

The new year is fast approaching and, on the Internet, that means just one thing: Time to put together some top 10 lists. And since "The Avengers" was undoubtedly the film event of the year — $1.5 billion worldwide doesn't lie — we thought it would only be fitting to ring out the old by taking a look at the Top 10 Avengers of 2012.
Just how awesome are the Avengers? They're so awesome that they get a Top 10 list even though there were only six of them in the movie. Get More »
"The Avengers" arrives on Blu-ray this week and, as you might expect, it's chock full of bonus clips, special features and even a brand new 10-minute short film. It's pretty epic.
But before you start diving into the special features, there's something else you're going to want to watch first: The movie itself. That's because director Joss Whedon and the folks at Marvel crammed the film with so many Easter eggs, cameos and moments that make you go "hmm" that even the most dedicated fan couldn't catch all of them.
With that in mind, then, and with a great big spoiler warning, here are eight things in "The Avengers" you may have missed the first time around. Get More »
This week: The biggest blockbuster of the year, "The Avengers," is likely to become the best-selling home video of the year as fans can't seem to get enough of Marvel's Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America teaming up to battle Loki and an army of hostile aliens.
Also new this week is the hilariously twisted Danish comedy "Klown," the thriller "Barricade" starring Eric McCormack and a collection of all 22 James Bond films called, simply, "Bond 50."
[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."

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Any film that describes itself as "in the vein of 'Amelie' and '(500) Days of Summer'" certainly has our attention. Deadline reports that Captain America himself, Chris Evans, and Michelle Monaghan will star in "A Many Splintered Thing," an "anti-romantic comedy" that tells the story of a young man who meets a breathtaking — and engaged — young woman at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist.
• It looks like Max Minghella wants a set of "Horns," too. Variety reports that the "Social Network" star is in talks to join Daniel Radcliffe in the screen adaptation of Joe Hill's (son of Stephen King) novel about a man who wakes up after a night of debauchery to discover that he's grown a pair of ... well, horns.

You knew it was inevitable, that this day of reckoning would finally come: "The Avengers" has a gag reel.
And what a gag reel it is.
Set brilliantly to Jerry Reed's "Eastbound and Down," a.k.a. the theme song to "Smoky and the Bandit," these bloopers make it look like "The Avengers" may have been the most enjoyable $200-million Marvel Studios ever spent. Get More »
