Captain America: Civil War
Chris Evans teases his filming schedule for Civil War and the next Avengers:
We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I’ve got some downtime and I can do with it as I please. I don’t know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I’m creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life. And then we start the Infinity War, I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That’s going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back.
Daniel Brül, interviewed by the Independent, confirms he’s playing the villain Baron Zemo:
Brühl has just been cast in the new Captain America, as the villain, Baron Helmut Zemo – “I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison…” – and starts shooting at the end of April. “For the first few days I’ll walk around like a little boy, just amazed by the megalomania of it. It’s such a huge project. We could do 20 films with the budget.”

Former Latino Review writer Umberto Gonzalez claims on Instagram that the standalone Spider-Man movie will be titled Spider-Man: The New Avenger.
Chris Columbus discusses the process behind making the movie with /Film:
The concept feels very inspired by Ghostbusters. Can you talk about that? And ’cause obviously Sony’s making their own Ghostbusters universe of movies now. Was there any like pressure to stay away from that territory or…?
Well look, When Josh Gad saw the rough cut of the movie, he said this is the first Amblin movie since like 1986. And I said, well that’s what we were really going for. We wanted to create that feeling that you had when you went to see those Amblin movies back in the mid ’80s. You know, there was a certain feeling. I can’t, it was a little edgy. As a kid, you felt like you were seeing something that–
You weren’t being talked down to.
You weren’t being talked down to. The movie was made not only for the kids, but for their parents. So that was the goal with this was really to create that evocative feel of the ’80s. Now that evocative feel of those Amblin pictures obviously goes, you know, I was there, so I brought a little Gremlins and Goonies into it. A little bit of Indiana Jones. A little bit of Ghostbusters, which was not an Amblin film, but still had that feeling. So it’s a combination of it’s a, it’s got a lot of influences.
