Let’s Speculate About Marvel’s Plans for 2020

Marvel 2020 movies - Phase Four

We’re still in the early stages of Marvel’s Phase Three — next week’s Doctor Strange is just the second film out of ten — but since Marvel is famous for mapping out its plans well ahead of time, it’s impossible not to wonder what’s coming in Phase Four. So let’s give into that temptation, and spend a bit of time speculating.

Marvel already has three dates nailed down for 2020: May 1, July 10, and November 6. What remains unclear is which titles they’re for. Which films can we expect in 2020 and beyond from Marvel’s Phase Four?  Read More »

Black Widow Movie - Scarlett Johansson

Since Marvel Studios already has their roster set through 2019, we won’t be seeing a standalone Black Widow movie anytime soon. However, Kevin Feige did say after that line-up is finished, “I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow.” There’s no indication as to what kind of movie we’d get featuring Black Widow, but Scarlett Johansson sees endless possibilities.

Find out what the actress thinks about the prospect of a Black Widow movie after the jump. Read More »

X-Men: Apocalypse - Jean Grey - Sophie Turner

Want to watch a deleted scene featuring Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse? Anyone out there hoping to get the only season of Constantine on Blu-ray or DVD?

black widow backstory

Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow has yet to get her own movie and probably never will, but by this point we’ve picked up enough bits and pieces about her past to know it was a dark one. Avengers: Age of Ultron gave us our best look yet at the Red Room that shaped her, while the Black Widow storyline in Agent Carter offered further insight into the program.

And it looks like we almost got even more of the Black Widow backstory in Captain America: Civil War. A scene from the film’s junior novelization reveals an especially harrowing incident in Natasha’s past. Basically, however depressing and terrible you thought her early years were, her actual childhood was so much worseRead More »

black widow movie

Go back and read the interviews with director Joss Whedon in the weeks leading up to the release of 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and witness a man who was very happy to be getting out of the superhero movie game. Go back a little further and read the various set visit reports and witness a man who was exhausted and beat to hell by the process of making a $200 million spectacle. With those images fresh in your brain, it’s easy to imagine why Whedon says he’ll never direct a superhero movie again, especially since he can make perfectly entertaining low-budget Shakespeare adaptations in his backyard.

Still, there is one character who Whedon says could possibly pull him back into the Marvel fold: Black Widow. He may be done with Avengers movies, but Scarlet Johansson‘s Natasha Romanoff could be the thing that drags him back into the comic book movie business. Theoretically. Because there are currently no plans to make this movie.
