‘Captain America: Civil War’ Set Photos Show a Beat-Up Robert Downey Jr.

Captain America: Civil War is continuing to shoot in Atlanta, where Marvel's Tony Stark and Steve Rogers are going to come to blows over the Superhero Registration Act. The latest set photos hint that Cap may have the upper hand. Star Robert Downey Jr. is seen wearing his signature Marvel Under Armour, and sporting a face that has been beaten and bloodied. Is Rogers the one responsible?

Like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will see two of DC Comics biggest superheroes battling in the streets of Metropolis, Captain America: Civil War will give us an epic brawl between Iron Man and Captain America. Though, we have yet to see this tussle even hinted at in any leaked set photos. Is this our first evidence of their clash? Or has Tony run into other unfortunate problems that have found him on the opposite end of a good ol' fashion butt kicking?

After Captain America: Civil War, the actor will most certainly appear in at least one movie in Marvel's two-part adventure, Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, but his future with the studio is uncertain after that.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Cast Helped Pick New ‘Spider-Man’

When it was first announced that Spider-Man was finally going to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was also revealed that whoever played Peter Parker will first appear in an unspecified Marvel movie, before the Spider-Man reboot hit theaters in summer 2017. Although it has never been officially been confirmed, it is widely known that this mystery movie is Captain America: Civil War, since the top contenders were flown out to Atlanta, where Captain America: Civil War is shooting, to test for the role. Now that Tom Holland has landed the coveted part, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that he actually tested with two of the stars from Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Age of Ultron, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, who helped with the decision making process.

On May 30, Tom Holland, Asa Butterfield, Charlie Rowe, Matthew Lintz, Judah Lewis and Charlie Plummer were all flown out to Atlanta, where they all tested alongside Robert Downey Jr., whose Iron Man character shares scenes with Spidey in Captain America: Civil War. Producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal were looking for chemistry between the young actors and the oldest Avenger. The studios narrowed it down to Tom Holland and Charlie Rowe, but they couldn't decide between them, so, on the week of June 8, they asked for a second screen test. Tom Holland was the only actor to test separately with Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, and he emerged as the clear choice during the second test. Aside from his cameo in Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland is signed on for at least three Spider-Man movies.

‘Avengers 2’ TV Spot Reunites the World's Greatest Heroes

‘Avengers 2’ TV Spot Reunites the World's Greatest Heroes

Yesterday, Robert Downey Jr. teased that 'big' Avengers news was coming this morning. That huge Marvel reveal was the announcement of the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast's appearance on both Good Morning America and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Of course, fans felt a little slighted, as this was merely promoting two Disney-owned ABC talk shows. To make up for it, Marvel decided to officially confirm that Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are directing Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. But again, this was old news revealed in the trades months ago. Now, Robert Downey Jr. is back, attempting to rectify his 'big' announcement news with one last try: A new Avengers: Age of Ultron TV spot!

Again, though, the effort is lackluster, as there is no new footage in this 30 second teaser. It was actually released to celebrate the more than $2 million Robert Downey Jr. helped raise for Julia's House through his Omaze campaign. For those that don't know, Julia's House is the only children's hospice charity in Dorset, South West England, dedicated to helping life-limited children and their families across the county and in South Wiltshire.

‘Avengers 2’ Cast Appearances Announced on ABC

The Boy who cried wolf has got nothing on Robert Downey Jr. Earlier in the year, the actor declared that a huge Marvel announcement was coming soon, and though we got a new trailer out of the deal, fans thought the rallying cry would provide far more substantial news. Yesterday, the same thing happened again. On his personal Twitter, Robert Downey Jr. declared that big Avengers news was dropping on Good Morning America today. What is the news? That the entire Avengers: Age of Ultron cast will be appearing live on a couple of ABC talk shows.

Yes, that's right. We didn't get new footage. The Captain Marvel actress wasn't revealed. And we learned nothing new about Marvel's Spider-Man plans. All this after we got a couple of puzzle pieces we were supposed to put together over night. If you are good with fonts, it was all pretty much there from the get-go. The main Avengers: Age of Ultron cast, which includes Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson will first be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! April 13th. This will be followed by a group appearance on Good Morning America April 24, all leading up to the film's big screen debut on May 1st.
