Alright, place this squarely in the "rumor" column, but Latino Review is claiming they have a scoop on Sir Ben Kingsley's role in an upcoming secret Marvel project - a role that undoes one of the most interesting things in this summer's "http://splashpage.mtv.com/tag/iron-man-3/ttp://splashpage.mtv.com/tag/iron-man-3/">Iron Man 3."

Does a new set photo from "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" tease the return of James Marsden's Cyclops? Well... Maybe. But let's explain why, or why not, a quick shot of a clapboard could indicate yet another X-Man getting resurrected from the dead in the movie universe.

As just posted on the mothership, there's new pictures of the X-sequel, including a sexy shot of Wolverine riddled with bullet holes, and an even sexier shot of Professor X and Magneto playing some groovy chess in the 1970's. But what caught our eye was a behind-the-scenes picture of Jennifer Lawrence (sans Mystique make-up) holding a clapboard for the movie.

Two important details pop out, if you stop looking at Jennifer Lawrence's radiant smile for just one frickin' second and zoom in on the clapboard: Read More...

By Charles Webb

It's the good old "second movie costume change" as "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" swaps out Cap's red, white, and blue threads for something a little darker in this espionage-heavy sequel.

U.S.A. Today ran a pair of stills this morning showing off our favorite super soldier's new costume, lifted from Steve's (Chris Evans) revamped look in "Secret Avengers" alongside S.H.I.E.L.D. chief Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). And there's some interesting symbolism in the use of this particular costume that could portend the future direction for Cap-on-film.

We might be reaching a little here...

***Some minor potential spoilers for "The Winter Soldier" to follow for you non-comics readers out there...****
For those of you who've read the aftermath of Ed Brubaker's "The Winter Soldier" storyline and the subsequent loss/return of Steve Rogers, the "Secret Avengers" costume portends the First Avenger's surrender of the Captain America identity, which was then being used by one-time sidekick-turned Communist assassin-turned gun-toting Captain America, Bucky Barnes. Is it possible that "The Winter Soldier" could set up to Caps for a subsequent film?

Beyond that, we get to see the aftermath of the elevator sequence unveiled during San Diego Comic-Con.

Sebastian Stan returns as Bucky AKA the Winter Soldier in next year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" which hits screens on April 4th.

"In terms of 'Black Panther,' it's absolutely in development."

That's Kevin Feige, Marvel's president of production responding to Black Tree TV when asked point-blank about the status of Black Panther on film. T'Challa, the monarch, scientist, martial artists, and tactician has had a winding road coming to the big screen for years now, with several false starts and elliptical starts as Marvel and the various rights holders who've had their hands on the character over the years have attempted to launch only the second black superhero franchise on film after "Blade."

"[Laughs] We did not hire James Spader to do a robot voice."

That's Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige speaking to The Huffington Post about casting the "Less Than Zero" and "The Practice" star as the titular villain in 2015's "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," where Feige says that fans should expect more than just the actor's voice being used in the sequel.

Feige says director Joss Whedon plans to employ both face and performance capture in the film, which sees Hank Pym's android creation unleashed upon the Marvel cinematic universe. Feige again: Read More...
