Actor Confirms That Captain America And Tony Stark Will Butt Heads In 'The Avengers'Little bit of nerd talk here, bear with us. Given the nature of most modern super hero films, WW2 is a pretty unique setting, which makes "Captain America: The First Avenger" --- a picture that has looked better and better since it was first announced -- something that could (hopefully) pan out as an interesting, enjoyable and entertaining piece of popcorn (hey, if "Thor" can pull it off, anything's possible, right?). So, some of us have been asking internally, could a "Captain America" sequel possibly be set once again in WW2? Or sometime in the past?

Given we're still about two years from seeing Neill Blomkamp's "Elysium," and that it's likely that details are going to be guarded until that time, we'll take every morsel of information that we can get for now.

Zac Efron is determined to have someone punch his adorable little face. The tween heartthrob has been lining up a number of Adult Projects that will hopefully help him transition into grittier fare and one of those, "Die In A Gunfight," now has a director.

Director Joel Schumacher is going to keep making movies whether or not anybody wants to see them. While mainstream audiences probably remember his last outing, the silly conspiracy thriller "The Number 23," he's actually made two more movies since: the horror pic "Blood Creek" and the godawful teens 'n drugs movie "Twelve." Well, for better or worse, Schumacher is back.

Johnny Simmons seems poised for big things. He's already co-starred with Carey Mulligan in "The Greatest," worked with Robert Redford in "The Conspirator" and notched some geek cred with Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" and now the actor has lined up roles in couple more films.

Believe us, we're rooting for director Tony Kaye if only because he's had an uphill battle in Hollywood ever since "American History X." With his last two efforts being either ignored (the powerful abortion documentary "Lake Of Fire") or mired in film studio bankruptcy woes (the New Orleans thriller “Black Water Transit” starring Laurence Fishburne, Karl Urban and Brittany Snow) the guy could use a break. It's just too bad that his latest, the star-studded "Detachment" doesn't look like it will fit the bill.
