This week saw Marvel Comics make a desperation move by changing Captain America's origins to be that of a Hydra Agent.
Yeah, rather lame, and one that eventually will be reversed.
Chris Evans doesn't seem to be a big fan, but check out "what if" images below if it happened in the MCU.
Boss Logic put together the following showing off a possible Chris Evans Captain America Hydra costume.
We agree with Chris Evans: Say it ain't so!

Fan-favorite Marvel concept artist Andy Park has posted more images on his official Instagram account.
This time we are treated to pics of Nick Fury, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Ant-Man and Ultron Mark 1.
Concept to Film Series: Ant-Man! It was cool to see the Iron Man concept design I did next to the final film version. So I thought it'd be cool to do that again. This time ANT-MAN! What a pleasure it was to design this guy. Mega props & thx to @edgar_wright & #peytonreed Two amazing directors! #AntMan #paulrudd #marvelstudios #marvel #conceptart #costume #helmet & props to @comic_legend_bob_layton for the inspiration for the movie's storyline! #legend & props to Costume Designer Sammy Sheldon & Specialty Costume a Creator Ivo Ceveney for making a very difficult concept design come to life!
Concept to Film Series: Black Widow! Here's another side by side post. This time it's the concept design I did of Black a Widow for Avengers: Age of Ultron next to the final look in the movie. It's a bit Tron-like I know but we tried to tech her up & make her really bad-ass! Props to Costume Designer Alexandra Byrne. She does amazing work! #BlackWidow #scarletjohansson #Avengers #avengersageofultron #costume #conceptart #conceptdesign #design #marvelstudios #marvel
Concept to Film Series: Hawkeye!! I loved concept designing him for all his movie appearances. I was a big West Coast Avengers fan back in the day... I just wish I could've given him his classic purple mask :) This costume was done for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Props to costume designer Alexandra Byrne! & the fact that @hottoyscollectibles makes these figures makes the kid in me so happy! #hawkeye #avengersageofultron #Avengers #jeremyrenner @renner4real #hottoys #conceptart #conceptdesign #design #costume
Concept to Film Series: Ultron Mark 1! I had a lot of fun coming up with the look of this monstrosity made up of broken Iron Man parts but w/the visage resembling the classic Ultron face. #Ultron #Avengers #avengersageofultron #IronMan #jamesspader #conceptart #conceptdesign #design #marvelstudios #marvel
Concept to Film Series: Black Widow! One of the first concept designs I got to do when I first got hired by Marvel Studios back in 2010. This was for The Avengers film. I've been lucky enough to do all her looks ever since. I'll never complain that I got to paint Scarlet Johansson so many times :) Props to Costume Designer, Alexandra Bryne for physically making it great. #BlackWidow #scarletjohansson #conceptdesign #conceptart #design #costume #marvelstudios #marvel #film
Concept to Film Series: Maria Hill! I've been having fun posting these side by side comparisons. Here you can see the difference between the concept design illustration I did & her final look. I attempted to bring the white straps from the comics look knowing that it probably won't look good in reality. But I thought if they did a grey version it might work. At the end they opted to not do the straps. I'm ok with that. Again props to Alexandra Bryne the Costume Designer. & I had fun painting the beautiful @cobiesmulders #MariaHill #Avengers #SHIELD #marvelstudios #marvel #film #conceptart #conceptdesign #design #costume #illustration #cobiesmulders
Concept to Film Series: Nick Fury! Even though his look was pretty simple & straightforward I had fun coming up w/his bad-ass Head of SHIELD look for the first Avengers film. He & Agent Coulson were the glue for the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe. Again props to Alexandra Bryne the Costume Designer. #NickFury #Avengers #SHIELD #marvelstudios #marvel #film #conceptart #conceptdesign #design #costume #illustration #samuelljackson

X-Men: Apocalypse officially kicks off tonight, but yesterday saw advanced screenings take place, which I was privy to.
Currently at Rotten Tomatoes, X-Men: Apocalypse is considered "rotten" with only 47% of the ratings positive.
Audiences listed are giving it a 74% positive rating, so there is a pretty wide gap.
Speaking of the gap, I've been traversing the internet checking out fan reaction (reddit is blowing up here), and I think reactions are based on expectations: For example, I went in with low expectations (wasn't a fan of Days of Future Past or The Wolverine), so I pretty much enjoyed X-Men: Apocalypse; however, if you happen to be a die-hard X-Men fan, this movie probably comes off as disappointing.
So let's take a look at the good and the bad of X-Men: Apocalypse (Spoilers follow):
Opening scene: First Four Horseman: I loved the opening scene set in the past with Apocalypse and his original Four Horseman -- those guys were bad ass! The scene got pretty graphic, too, which took me by surprise. The music was pretty epic adding to Apocalypse's "godlike" presence. Hey, Fox! Can you release the names of the characters and actors! Off to a good start!
Quicksilver: We all recall that first look image of Evan Peters as Quicksilver in X-Men: Days Of Future Past -- we all hated it! However, once we saw Quicksilver on screen, the character quickly (no pun intended!) became a fan-favorite and stole the show. Quicksilver steals the show once again in X-Men: Apocalypse. He has by far the best scenes and best written dialogue. How about a spinoff movie?
Psylocke: Olivia Munn was bad ass as well! The look and feel of the character was pretty much straight out of the comics, something which Munn wanted to remain true to. Definitely worked! Another character deserving of a spinoff movie.
Yes. Fox spoiled the ending to the movie the day before its release.
Jean Grey: I'm a fan of Sophie Turner. I dig her in Game of Thrones and felt she played a good enough Jean Grey. What was pretty awesome was when they revealed the Phoenix at the end! Now that was cool to see and might lead into the next X-Men, movie, which may be set in space.
Stan Lee: Always good to see Stan Lee on screen, and this cameo happened to be very special to him because it also featured his wife. Very nice!
Wolverine: I loved the Wolverine scene, it was straight out of the Weapon X comics. We know Hugh Jackman's time is counting down, so including him with the Berseker Rage was pretty awesome. Thank you!
Visual effects were pretty much crap (guessing this movie is a disaster in 3D).
In my opinion, there is absolutely no excuse for Oscar Isaac to look as bad as he did as Apocalypse. NONE. Especially when they already had a costume designer working on the movie who came up with the exact look out of the comics! But they didn't use it! This just screams that Fox is too cheap to do the character justice, and it came out as so. The special effects for the rest of the movie were sub bar, IMO, as well.
We could have had this:
Apocalypse: In addition to the crappy visual effects, his power base was pretty disappointing. The guy acquired thousands of mutant powers, but uses less than a half dozen? Laughable.
New Four Horseman: Storm and Apocalypse show up to Caliban and ask him to find the most powerful mutants. Psylocke steps in and says she knows them, etc. Off to Angel we go. Angel? Huh? He's one of the most powerful? Again, missed opportunity to create "Archangel." Angel was probably the most disappointing character in the movie. I felt they needed to transform Angel, like in the comics, to Archangel, which I felt they didn't come close to. I also felt Magneto becoming a Four Horseman was a waste: We knew he was going to become a good guy. Again. I felt Kinberg and Singer played it too safe with these characters (probably because they're all basically "good" guys). They didn't even compare to the original Four Horsemen listed above. Meh.
Lamest character in the movie?
Jubilee: The mall scene was cut from the movie for whatever reason, but hey, instead we probably got a bunch more of the Michael Bay-esque explosions, right? The mall scene featured the Dazzler Easter Egg and Jubilee using her powers. Bryan Singer said in an interview he wanted more of Jubilee -- well, dude, you're the director, give her some more screen time, then! Hello! The good news is that the scene will be in the Blu-Ray.
Psylocke: She goes on both lists because the bad is that she didn't get enough screen time!
Danger Room scene: Another big time missed opportunity!! Mystique is the new team leader (or whatever) and we see the Danger Room unfold. Then we see -- Sentinels?! The crappy Sentinels from Days of Future Past! Ughhh!! LOL! How epic would it have been if they showed the Sentinels from the comics! Instead, Singer uses his crappy version that is cousins with the Dyson vacuum cleaner. More piss-poor special effects from these guys! Inexcusable!
We hate this:
Post-Credit scene: Haven't these guys learned anything from Marvel Studios? You go out with a BANG! not a whimper. The post-credit scene revealed the involvement of Essex Corp, which we are to presume is Mr. Sinister; however, I felt like the reason they revealed so little is because they aren't sure what's next. I thought it was rather lackluster and lame.
On the Fence:
Havok's death: Is he really dead? With Mr. Sinister teased, it's possible Havok may have somehow survived.
Mystique: Hey, it's Jennifer Lawrence, so she has to be the leader of the movie, right?
Anything I missed? Let me know in the comments below.

Fan-favorite writer Dan Abnett has signed exclusively with DC Comics.
Abnett, known for penning Marvel Cosmic, Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova, will be writing Aquaman and Titans for DC.
Brad Walker, Abnett's artist on Guardians, also returns for Aquaman.
See the full announcement below.
Good move, DC.
More Aquaman scripting today.— Dan Abnett + Nik (@VincentAbnett) May 26, 2016
'AQUAMAN' AND 'TITANS' WRITER DAN ABNETT SIGNS WITH DC ENTERTAINMENT
Fan-Favorite Writer to Pen AQUAMAN and TITANS as Part of DC Universe: Rebirth
BURBANK, Calif. (May 26, 2016) – DC Entertainment continues to add top-flight talent to its creative roster, announcing today that it has reached an agreement with writer Dan Abnett to create comic book content solely for the company’s DC and Vertigo imprints. In addition to writing Aquaman: Rebirth #1 and Aquaman #1 in June, Abnett will also pen Titans: Rebirth #1, continuing threads from his storyline in his current Titans Hunt miniseries. Shipping twice monthly, the Aquaman art team includes talented artists Phil Briones, Scot Eaton, Oscar Jimenez, Jesus Merino and Brad Walker, while the monthly Titans will see artist Brett Booth accompany Abnett on the book.
“Dan Abnett is the perfect fit for Aquaman and Titans,” said DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee. “He skillfully balances great dialogue and high-octane action, making for great reads every time. DC is excited that he’ll be giving fans more great stories in both books as we enter into our line wide REBIRTH re-launch in June and beyond.”
Aquaman continues the story of Arthur Curry, the King of Atlantis, as he seeks to reconcile his dual heritage of land and sea. A citizen of both worlds, Arthur seeks to unite Atlantis with the rest of the global community. But his plans will be thrown into chaos with the return of his arch-nemesis Black Manta, who seeks to destroy the careful balance of peace, and bring Aquaman’s world crashing down.
Titans continues story beats from Abnett’s run on Titans Hunt, with teammates Wally West, Donna Troy, Arsenal, Garth, Lilith and Nightwing all reunited after the disastrous consequences of having their memories lost. Now, with their memories intact they will attempt to reunite as a team, and stop the demon that broke them apart and is a threat to reality itself.
"I was delighted by Dan DiDio's invitation to sign exclusively with DC,” said Abnett. “My recent work for DC, on projects like He-Man, Earth 2 and Titans Hunt have been both rewarding and enjoyable, and now with Aquaman's Rebirth in the mix, and the Titans as a new series, it seems like the ideal time to really focus on DC work and do my best to knock each and every issue out of the park. Not that we have baseball parks in the UK. We have cricket pitches. But the point stands, anyway..."
Abnett makes his REBIRTH debut on Aquaman: Rebirth #1 (on sale June 8) and Aquaman #1 (on sale June 22) beginning an all-new story arc, blasting out of the events of the DC Universe: Rebirth #1 special, written by Geoff Johns (Justice League, Green Lantern: Rebirth, Flash: Rebirth), that went on sale May 25. As part of the REBIRTH line wide re-launch, Aquaman will ship twice monthly, and at a lower price of $2.99.

In Marvel Comics desperate attempt to sell copies amid DC Comics releasing their Rebirth issue, they changed up Captain America's story so he is and always has been a member of Hydra.
Marvel Comics even released the spoiler pic officially.
Well, news has reached Chris Evans, the Captain America from the Marvel movies, who tweeted out his thoughts.
Yeah, it's pretty dumb.
The good news is Kevin Feige booted Marvel Comics from having anything more to do with the movies.
And a fan on Twitter sums things up rather nicely as well:

X-Men: Apocalypse is now out in theaters as advanced screenings took place today, and of course with that comes the leaked post-credit scene.
Spoiler info below.
"X-Men: Apocalypse" has a May 27, 2016 release directed by Bryan Singer starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, Josh Helman, Lana Condor & Ben Hardy.
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
The X-Men: Apocalypse post-credit scene features the aftermath of the Wolverine berserker rage scene involving the X-Men escape. Clean-up is underway with some guys in suits picking up the Weapon X blood where we see its placed into a briefcase which is labeled "Essex Corporation." In the comics, Nathaniel Essex is Mr. Sinister.
Simon Kinberg also said the X-Men: Apocalypse post-credit scene would set up other X-Men movies down the road:
It’s a nod toward potentially a lot of different movies. I mean certainly the Wolverine movie is related to what happens at the end of it, but there’s also another character that’s introduced, at least in name, in the tag and he could show up in any host of different X-Men films. Maybe a Gambit movie, maybe another X-Men movie.”

Check out the "trailer" below for "Revenge of the Jedi," which was the title of Star Wars: Episode VI prior to Return of the Jedi.
According to reports, writer Lawrence Kasdan thought "Revenge of the Jedi" was too weak of a title, so eventually George Lucas changed it to Return of the Jedi.
In addition, it's said the Jedi aren't supposed to seek revenge, which is another reason for the change.
The marketing for "Revenge of the Jedi" even got so far as having thousands of posters released. Check out one below.

Check out video below featuring Chris Evans talking about potentially appearing in other Marvel movies.
Evans says Guardians of the Galaxy will be interesting, but doesn't really fit Cap who is an earthbound hero.
Spider-Man: Homecoming would work or any more of the Spider-Man movies, says Evans.
Chris Evans also offers he would be up to cameo or appear in other movies as Marvel sees fit.
Spider-Man: Homecoming has a July 7, 2017 release starring Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomeia and Michael Keaton.

DC Comics and Geoff John's big issue of Rebirth hits today!
My LCS quickly sold out of at least 250 copies leaving some readers to travel miles and miles in an attempt to find a copy.
You can always read the issue digitally, which is well worth the price of $2.99 for 80 pages of content.
I thought the issue was really great, and contrary to a few comic book sites' spoiler/speculation articles, the end isn't exactly clear: Did Dr. Manhattan create the entire DC Universe? I didn't think so. He may have been responsible for the New 52, in that he got involved at an opportune time (Flashpoint Paradox), but exactly what are his motivations remains to be seen. What's coming ahead should be pretty good (and all the DC issue are now $2.99!).
Check out video below featuring Geoff Johns talking about the Rebirth issue. Johns makes a great point that the issue isn't about deconstructing comics (which we've been through at least 10 years or more of), but just the opposite.

Check out a batch of Iron Man Mark 46 concept art for Captain America: Civil War.
Some people have been wondering if this is the MCU version of the Bleeding Edge armor. Check out what the concept artist has to say, which sounds like more or less the Bleeding Edge armor from the comics is an inspiration for the Civil War suit.
The pics come from the Captain America: Civil War Art of the Movie book which is now available and can be picked up through Amazon.
"With lot of Iron Man suits, we've always tried to be inspired by suits that have appeared in the comics before, whether aesthetically or conceptually," concept artist Phil Saunders says. "One of the ones people had been eager for us to tackle was the comics's Bleeding Edge armor -- even if this suit doesn't have the functionality of the Bleeding Edge armor. In Iron Man 3, we designed the Mark 42 with a level of detail complexity because of the panel-attachment function -- various plates flying into him -- which required a very fine line breakup. We were assuming that was the way he was going to continue to suit up. For both aesthetic and functional reasons, we felt it was necessary to continue that level of complexity in the Mark 45 armor, the last suit seen in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. That suit was very organic with anatomical musculature. For this suit, the Mark 46, I wanted to take it back a little more toward a mechanical design while still keeping that level of musculature to it. You'll see in this design a lot of the lines flow more directly, and it has a much simpler color breakup."

Spoilers follow for the Season 2 finale of The Flash.
Anybody see that coming?
While many guessed the identity of the man in the iron mask, I bet many of you (me included!) didn't forsee what happened at the end with Barry time travelling.
It seems The Flash created the Flashpoint Paradox!
The man in the iron mask is revealed to be none other than the real Jay Garrick (Zoom just borrowed his name for a time) from Earth-3, played by John Wesley Shipp. We see John Wesley Shipp as the Jay Garrick Flash -- helmet and all! I thought it was great!
EW.com revealed first look images as well as an interview with Shipp, and the good news is this isn't the last we have seen of Garrick. Shipp confirms in the interview he will be back for The Flash Season 3:
Yes. I’ve been given permission to say that yes, they have all kinds of exciting and interesting plans for me, that are interesting not only in the context of the storyline, but they continue to spin out, which will be very challenging for me as an actor. That’s all I’m allowed to say about that. But yes, I will be back next season.
Shipp also comments on Barry going back in time and saving his mother. What would Henry Allen think about that? Turns out, we already know the answer:
We know already, don’t we? Henry has already said unequivocally when Barry came to Iron Heights to say, “I can save her, I can get you out of here.” I go, “No, absolutely not. Things happen for a reason. There are unintended consequences, Barry. You cannot go and change one thing without it having myriad unintended affects.” Henry Allen was very clear with Barry back in Iron Heights that he should not go back and — excuse my French — f— with the timeline. You cannot do that. It’s one of the reasons why Barry, the first time around, stopped himself from stopping the Reverse-Flash from killing his mother. Now he’s decided, “What do I have left to lose? I’ve lost everything? I’ve lost my father. I’ve lost my mother. Screw it. What else can go wrong?” So he decides to go back and do what Henry had advised him not to do.
John Wesley Shipp is also asked how Barry changing things will affect the show, but Shipp remains coy:
That’s going to be very interesting to find out, isn’t it? That is the exact question that we want left in the minds of our audience members when the curtain comes down on our finale. [Laughs.]
Here are the first look images of John Wesley Shipp as Jay Garrick (glad he's back! I was pretty upset last week!):

Long time DC producer Charles Roven is reported to be getting diminished responsibilities as a result of the disappointing performance of Batman Vs. Superman.
Roven, who has been on the every DC film since Christopher Nolan's 2005 Batman Begins, is said to no longer be producing certain DC movies, according to THR, with The Flash and Aquaman named (movies not yet filming).
It's said talks are underway within WB to have Charles Roven as more of an executive producer role and one who is not involved in day-to-day production.
It is said that Roven could still be a producer on various sequels of movies he is already producing.
It's noted that one reason for the shift is due to WB wanting to increase the number of DC productions, with it said it's physically impossible for one man to handle all the load.
It recently became known that Geoff Johns and WB exec Jon Berg are now co-running the DC films, with this report adding Berg is handling day-to-day operations on Justice League.
Regarding Zack Snyder receiving any blame, no report has specifically mentioned any ramifications for the director, which could be due to WB simply not wanting bad publicity with Justice League coming out. It is said WB is moving away from Zack Snyder's "brain trust" of which Charles Roven was a part of (and wife Deborah, Richard Suckle and Wesley Collar).

Will we ever see Blade again?
If Wesley Snipes has anything to say about it, the answer is yes.
Snipes took to Twitter to stay Blade is still a possibility -- at least for him.
"When it comes to another BLADE, there's always a possibility," Snipes said.
Wesley Snipes then followed up the tweet with, "Balls in Marvels court..."
Snipes starred in the Blade franchise back in the 90s which netted over a billion dollars in revenue.
It's rumored/speculated Blade may show up in some form on the Marvel Netflix series, quite possibly as a female version.
When it comes to another BLADE, there's always a possibility. #SharpeningMyTeeth— Wesley Snipes (@wesleysnipes) May 24, 2016

While Geoff Johns has yet to admit he's co-running DC films, the DC Entertainment chief creative officer and comic book writer may have provided a big clue that the DCEU will be a bit brighter and more fun in tone.
Johns, who has the big DC Comics Rebirth issue coming out tomorrow, updated his Facebook profile with an image of Superman Henry Cavill smiling, laughing and having a grand ol' time, which may hint that since Johns is taking over the DC movie universe, that it may be a bit more upbeat than Batman Vs. Superman and Man of Steel.
The most recent report has stated that following the disappointment of Batman Vs. Superman, that Geoff Johns and WB exec Jon Berg will be co-running the DC film universe and have been named as producers on board Justice League.
Essentially, Johns has become the "Kevin Feige" of DC, but it could be argued Johns has a larger role as Johns works with the movies, TV, video games and comic books, while Feige is just in charge of Marvel Studios.
It would be cool if Johns was also teasing another Superman movie as well...

The big DC Comics Rebirth issue hits this week, which is a whopping 80 pages for $2.99.
Spoilers, of course, have already hit the net via leaked images and official press.
Now the writer on Rebirth, Geoff Johns, is putting his money where his mouth is by offering a personal money back guarantee on the book.
"It’s $2.99 for 80 pages. It’s not a lot," Johns said, reports Newsarama. "If anyone wants to check out comics, wants to check out DC Universe Rebirth #1 and doesn’t like it, they can mail [the comic book] to Warner Bros., to me, and I will send them a check, I literally will, for both postage and for the book. I will buy all these books back because I believe in this issue a lot. I think it’ll do very well. I hope it does well. But I seriously will, I’ll buy back this book."
Rebirth will become available digitally and in local comic shops tomorrow.
It all begins here. Do not skip to the last page. Do not let a friend or message board ruin this comic for you. The future (and past) of the DC Universe starts here. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
THEY SAID IT: “Rebirth is about focusing in on the core of the character and their respective universe,” says writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. “It brings back what has been lost: the legacy of the characters, the love and the hope of the DCU!”
