Marvel Cinematic Universe Actresses

Around the time the cast of Thor: Ragnarok was making the publicity rounds for the Marvel Studios sequel, cast member Tessa Thompson revealed that she and the rest of the female stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe talked to Kevin Feige about a possible all-female superhero team-up movie. Tessa Thompson explained:

“Recently, I marched up with a couple of other women that work in Marvel and we went to Kevin, ‘What about a movie with some female super heroes? Like all of them?'”

Kevin Feige quickly agreed to this idea, but we’ll be waiting at least a few years before that movie gets off the ground. In the meantime, we can imagine what it might be like with a new photo of almost all the Marvel Cinematic Universe actresses together for the first time ever. Read More »

But it seems like Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan are up to the task, delivering the laughs and the love toward Williams’ character in Jake Kasdan‘s sorta-sequel to the 1995 Jumanji movie.

Below, check out some of the Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle early buzz.

How do you go about updating Jumanji for 2017? By transforming that magical (and dangerous) board game of the title into a video game, of course.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 trailer breakdown

If there’s one department where Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 tops its predecessor, it’s the action. The set pieces are more creative, more propulsive, and often more personal in the sequel.

Below, hear Gunn provide commentary in a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 scene breakdown.
