Sometimes the best casting ideas come from the actors themselves.

Bryan Cranston tells Metro that he would like to play a Marvel villain:

“You know what I’d like to do? I’d like to do some big superhero villain in some Marvel classic.”

Let’s admit one basic fact – Marvel villains are not very good, in a bad way. In all the movies of Phase 1 and 2 I can’t recall one villain that was truly terrifying, scary or challenging to the superhero, like The Joker or Bane Even the ones who came close to that, ended up joining the Avengers (Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Winter Soldier, even Loki occasionally).

The MCU desperately needs this crazy bad guy, and Cranston is the man to do it, on all levels. Even as Walter White himself – The Avengers couldn’t handle him and Stark would go insane facing him.

Just sign him up!

As we hear, but cannot see (urghhh), there were many great moments featured in the Captain America: Civil War (or as we call it now, Captain America vs. Iron Man) footage that debuted during the D23 Expo.

The footage reportedly includes glimpses of new Marvel superhero, Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), as well as a few familiar faces, including Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), The Vision (Paul Bettany), Ant Man (Paul Rudd), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).

The footage, narrated by General Ross (John Hurt) opens with a fight between Black Widow, Falcon, Captain America and Crossbones (Frank Grillo). Over the course of the battle, Captain America gains the upper hand and Crossbones taunts him, saying, “You know…he remembered you. Your pal…your buddy…Your Bucky.”

The footage also previews the growing tension between Iron Man and Captain America, with Iron Man saying: “Sometimes I want to punch you in your perfect teeth.”

The highlight of the footage comes when Scoot Lang awoken by a group of Avengers while sleeping in the back of a van, and finds himself absolutely star-struck by the presence of Captain America. Imagine Paul Rudd’s face during this scene, that’s all we can offer for now. That scene probably comes as the direct continuation of after the credits scene in Ant Man, where the Falcon says he “knows a guy”.

When production started on Captain America: Civil War back in May, Marvel released the official synopsis for the movie:

“another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, which leads to a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team.”
