You see the release date in the image there: May 6, 2016. Marvel Phase Three kicks off exactly one year from yesterday with the release of Captain America: Civil War. With the clock ticking, and the Avengers: Age of Ultron publicity tour finally winding down, it’s time to get to shooting Cap 3. Marvel announced today that production has officially begun on next summer’s massive sequel, and they also revealed four more big additions to the cast.
This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, given that Showtime's most quietly-continuing 'Episodes' had already been granted an additional season, but good news all the same: Emmy Rossum-William H. Macy family drama 'Shameless' will officially return for a fifth season in 2015, as the Don Cheadle- and Kristen Bell-starring 'House of Lies' will return for its fourth.
We knew that the original team of Avengers would return for 'Avengers 2' plus the new additions of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. But, now we've learned that another character from the Marvel universe will make an appearance in the upcoming sequel. Don Cheadle will join the 'Avengers 2' cast, bringing Colonel James Rhodes/War Machine to the fight against Ultron.
