Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

#D23 EXPO #CaptainAmerica Civil War Presentation. Who's Side Are You On?

Heroic Hollywood scooped this story a few days ago and now THR has confirmed it.

War broke out at D23 Saturday, where footage from Captain America: Civil War debuted.

Chris Evans (Captain America) and Anthony Mackie (Falcon) flew in from Germany, where the film is completing its final week of shooting.

Civil War is set to pit a team of anti-superhero registration heroes led by Captain America (Evans) against pro-registration forces led by Iron Man (Downey). Heroes slated to appear in the big brawl also include The Falcon (Mackie), The Vision (Paul Bettany), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and MCU newcomers Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).

"It's so good. I love it," said a giddy Evans before the footage showed. It began with Falcon and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), working with Captain America to take down Crossbones (Frank Grillo) in a crowded urban environment.

"You know, he remembered you. Your pal, your buddy, your Bucky," says Crossbones to a confused Cap.

It cuts to a speech from General Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt), who lectures Cap in Avengers headquarters.

"The world owes you an unpayable debt. A lot great many people see you as a hero," says Ross. "There are some who prefer the word vigilante. People are afraid."

The biggest applause came from this line from Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) to Captain America, who are arguing about the ethics of being a superhero: "Sometimes I want to punch you in your perfect teeth."

It also appears Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) is a good guy in the film, which deals with the downside of being a superhero.

"In this job, we try to save as many as we can. Sometimes that doesn't' mean everybody," said Captain America.

Feige also teased Doctor Strange, with a video message from Benedict Cumberbatch.

"He's an extraordinary character and brings in a whole other dimension … multiple dimensions to the marvel universe." He said it will be a "mind-blowing" experience.

Feige showed concept art from Doctor Strange, which included narration from director Scott Derrickson.

"He's go on a quest looking for healing. Looking for a way to recover. He meets the Ancient One, who begins helping him on the path of healing, and that turns into much more," Derrickson said.

Doctor Strange hits theaters Nov. 4, 2016 and also stars Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Captain America: Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo are directing Civil War, before they transition to Avengers: Infinity War Part I (2018) and Avengers: Infinity War Part II (2019).

Civil War is set to pit a team of anti-superhero registration heroes led by Captain America (Evans) against pro-registration forces led by Iron Man (Downey). Heroes slated to appear in the big brawl also include The Falcon (Mackie), The Vision (Paul Bettany), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and MCU newcomers Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).

Non superheroes who are among the sprawling cast include Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp from Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt from Incredible Hulk). Two key Marvel figures who have not been announced are Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders).

The post-credit sequence in Ant-Man featured footage culled from Civil War, and showed Captain America and Falcon debating what to do with a trapped Winter Soldier.

Captain America: Civil War hits May 6, 2016.

He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
