?Jungle Book Questions

The Jungle Book is arguably director Jon Favreau‘s most ambitious film to date. The filmmaker behind Iron Man and Chef reimagines the 1967 Disney animated classic on a grand scale. 98% of The Jungle Book is CGI, and bringing those environments to life, over a two-year process, was quite an undertaking for Favreau and all involved.

With the film, which was actually influenced by the likes of Goodfellas and classic westerns, Favreau tells a surprisingly intimate comig-of-age tale on a massive canvas. To learn how the director and his team came together to retell author Rudyard Kipling‘s story, read our Jon Favreau interview below.

Scarlett Johansson Black Widow Civil War

There are many questions surrounding the 2016 film, Captain America: Civil War, and slowly they’re being answered. We already know the basics: Film one of Phase Three will come from the same writers and directors of The Winter Soldier, and most of the cast will be back, with new additions Robert Downey Jr. and Chadwick Boseman as Iron Man and Black Panther. The crux of the film will be a disagreement between Iron Man and Cap (Chris Evans) but there will be other foes as well, primarily Crossbones, played by Frank Grillo.

We recently learned that the film would be similar in tone to The Winter Soldier and Peggy Carter might play a small role too. But what about the rest of The Avengers, especially those who don’t have their own solo films in Phase Three? Well, directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently did an interview and confirmed at least one of them will appear in Civil War. Scarlett Johansson will reprise her role as Black Widow come May 6, 2016. Read the Black Widow Civil War news below. Read More »

These don’t spoil anything in particular but if you have been avoiding everything Avengers-related, you probably want to stay away. Potential spoilers (very small ones) follow. Read More »
