Captain America 3: Speculation about the upcoming Captain America 3, due in theaters on May 6, 2016, has been widespread, but it appears that Marvel has decided on a storyline: the aptly named Civil War, which depicts a division among superheroes on different sides of the issue of government registration, with opposing groups led by Iron Man and Captain America. Robert Downey Jr. is "on the verge" of agreeing to star in the movie, opposite Chris Evans. [Variety]


John Wick

Doctor Strange: As Marvel continues its search for an actor to star in Doctor Strange, Keanu Reeves reflected on the role and the rumors that he might play the character. "I like the idea," he said in a recent interview. "I go to those kinds of movies. I grew up on them and comics and graphic novels. [But] I didn’t know Doctor Strange as a character, I didn’t read that as a kid. I'm gonna have to read it. I remember reading something… who’s going to play Doctor Strange? Would I be good for the role?" [Collider]


The Alamo

The Alamo: The largest outdoor movie set in the world is "struggling to stay up," according to a new report. Known as the Alamo Village, the set, which features a "nearly exact replica" of the Alamo as well as a Western town, was constructed in 1959 and used in the John Wayne movie The Alamo, one of some 38 movies for which it served as a location. The historic movie set, located in Brackettsille, Texas, is closed and is now for sale. [KSAT]
