Do you stand with superhero movies? If so, here's another great roundup of news for you, half of it for Team Marvel and half of it for Team DC.
Captain America: Civil War
Some cool new promo art for the upcoming Captain America (and Avengers) sequel arrived online this week, one seen above and another below. Iron Man is such a punk that he didn't bother to make his own propaganda poster, instead just defacing Captain America's. Goody-two-shoes Steve Rogers, and probably those who stand with him, would never stoop so low. [via ComingSoon.net]
Marvel Cinematic Universe
In the wake of Deadpool's success and news of an R-rated Wolverine sequel and an R-rated cut of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, many fans are wondering what other superhero movies could aim for an R rating. Well, we can count all MCU titles out, as Disney CEO Bob Iger directly stated to shareholders today, "We don't have any plans to make R-rated Marvel movies." Captain America would approve. Of course, you can still find hard-edged stuff from the MCU in their Netflix series. [via ComicBookMovie.com]
Suicide Squad 2
With Suicide Squad one of the most anticipated comic book movies of all time and now word that Warner Bros. is very happy with the footage for the upcoming supervillain-focused DC extended-universe title, it's not surprise that the studio is already planning a sequel. Buried in a Variety story on the next project for director David Ayer, there's mention that idea is to bring Ayer back for Suicide Squad 2 and shoot next year for a 2018 release. [via ComingSoon.net]
