RDJ to join Cap 3 for Civil War?!
Here's a potentially Awesome Update for Marvel fans everywhere! Rumours have been flying around today that Robert Downey Jnr is set to join Chris Evens in Captain America 3, with the rumoured title for the film being either 'Civil War' or 'Fallen Son'. Readers of the Marvel comics will recognise that both of those titles are directly related to Mark Millers brilliant graphic novel, with Fallen Son being the follow up story arc after the major events of Civil War.
Civil War is widely considered to be one of the best Marvel graphic novels out there and see's it's heroes take sides over the Superhero Registration Act with Cap on one side and Tony Stark on the other. The events of Civil War would definitely cause some massive changes to the MCU.
Variety, who supplied the orignal story, have said that RDJ was set to have a small part in the film but wanted a much bigger one, leading Marvel studios President Kevin Feige to jump at he opportunity to bring Civil War to the MCU. This rumour would answer the current 'will he? won't he?' situation surrounding RDJ and a possible Iron Man 4 movie.

First look at Mockingbird on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
Here's an Awesome Update for Mockingbird and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans! EW.com released this first look image of the veteran comics Avenger and superhero, Bobbi Morse aka Mockingbird, in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!
In the comics, Mockingbird is most notable for her affiliations with the Avengers, the West Coast Avengers and her personal relationship with fellow Avenger Hawkeye. According to ABC, Mockingbird as of this picture is the Head of Hydra Security, which is a big step in the other direction; in other words, it's likely she's deep cover infiltrating Hydra the way they infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. Poetic comic writing that the AoS writers (and we) love. It remains to be seen whether the Mockingbird/Hawkeye relationship will be explored in the MCU, whether through Renner making an appearance(s) on the TV show, or Adrianne Palicki transferring to film.
What do you think? Do you think the "Head of Hydra Security" is an obvious mole story? Or do you think Marvel are actually pulling a fast one? What of the look - Mockingbird traditionally has blonde/light brown hair, and obviously the Hydra uniform is a big deviation, but it could all be a ruse! Finally, what do you want to see (or not see) in regards to Hawkeye? Let us know in the comments below!

First full look at BvS Batmobile
Here's an Awesome Update for Batman vs Superman and DC fans! As part of the promo material that is beginning to roll out for DCs upcoming titan title, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, director Zach Snyder took to Twitter and posted the first full look at the Batmobile!
This take on the batmobile clearly riffs on the Nolan Tumbler, and even evokes the batmobile that players will be able to pilot in the upcoming Rocksteady game, Arkham Knight. A more militarised, gritty approach does seem appropriate for the tone Snyder is going with the DC Cinematic Universe, and let's be honest: if Batfleck rolled up in something akin to Burton's version, we wouldn't be able to take the film seriously.
What do you think? Are you happy with the design? Are you excited to see Batfleck in action? Let us know in the comments below!
