Not all blooper reels are created equal. Most films and TV shows lack the comedy powerhouse lineup of a Parks And Recreation gag reel, say, and to expect such would be asking too much. But when you’ve got an entire movie crammed full of the most recognizable and successful stars in Hollywood, it somehow makes all those flubbed lines and goofball mugging for the camera that much more delightful. Such is the case with the just released gag reel for Captain America: Civil War, hot on the heels of Marvel’s endlessly watchable video revealing just what Thor was up to during this superhero grudge match. It’s a short but satisfying assemblage of clips, in which tricky dialogue gets mangled, Scarlett Johansson has trouble with her weapons, and Chris Evans promises he’ll “act the shit out of” a scene, just as soon as he stops laughing.

Actors Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie took time out of their day to visit a children’s hospital in Boston.
The Marvel superheroes greeted dozens of fans in the children’s unit of MassGeneral hospital. Evans is a big supporter of kids health, often donating time to visit sick children. Last year, he even suited up in his Captain America costume to visit kids with fellow actor Chris Pratt.
The 22-Pushup Challenge may just be the Ice Bucket Challenge of 2016. The viral awareness campaign — which aims to bring attention to the 22 military veterans who commit suicide daily — is spreading like wildfire through the ranks of celebrity action stars. Hollywood heavyweights like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, John Krasinski, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, Scott Eastwood and others have posted videos of themselves completing the 22 pushups, often accompanied by their curious pups (or, in the case of Pratt, joined by wife Anna Faris).
So who’s next? Jeremy Renner, Ludacris, Miles Teller, and Chadwick Boseman are just a few of the bold-name nominees that we can expect to see in the next rounds, if they choose to take up the challenge posed by their famous friends. Anyone is encouraged to participate; as of Monday afternoon, there were about 100,000 posts with the related hashtags on Instagram, from sports teams to politicians or private citizens. The goal of the campaign, as articulated by organization 22KILL, is to collectively make it to 1 million pushups.

Chris Evans took home the first award of the 2016 Teen Choice Awards, accepting the surfboard for choice sci-fi/fantasy movie actor for Captain America: Civil War. (The movie also won choice sci-fi/fantasy movie!) He strutted up and accepted the honor, but seemed to think it must be a mistake. Why? Well, watch his acceptance speech for yourself! Personally, we’re just glad to see his pecs strutting anywhere
