Black Widow movie

Now that a Black Widow movie is finally a real possibility, the super spy herself has a few ideas for where the solo film can take the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s iconic female Avenger.

Scarlett Johansson, who has long deserved a solo superhero outing since she first made a splash as the character in 2010’s Iron Man 2, has some ideas for where the Black Widow movie could take the character. And she should know — by the time the movie makes it to the big screen, she’ll have played Natasha Romanoff for more than a decade.

Isle of Dogs poster display

Wes Anderson‘s latest stop-motion extravaganza Isle of Dogs looks pretty darn charming, brimming with Anderson’s trademark visual flare and style (only shrunken down into miniature form). A brand new Isle of Dogs poster just arrived online, and it is loaded with very good dogs (and also some robots). See the Isle of Dogs poster below.

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 »

Black Widow Comedy - Scarlett Johansson

This coming weekend brings Thor: Ragnarok to theaters, the critically acclaimed third installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise following the mighty Thor and his adventures around the galaxy. What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi was hired behind the camera to infuse the comic book sequel with even more comedy than we’ve come to expect from Marvel Studios, and if given the opportunity, he’d like to bring those sensibilities to another desired Marvel character, and it’s one you might not expect: Black Widow.

avengers puerto rico

Real-life heroes do exist. And they look a lot like our fictional ones.

Scarlett Johansson has rallied her fellow Avengers (you might even say assembled) to participate in an event from which the proceeds would go toward relief efforts in Puerto Rico. The U.S. territory is still reeling from the destruction inflicted by Hurricane Maria, which hit Puerto Rico a month ago.

lucy 2

Lucy was the film that helped launch star Scarlett Johansson into the coveted “bankable movie star” category, proving that the prestige actress-turned-Avenger could carry a successful blockbuster movie. Why that hasn’t translated into a Black Widow movie yet, we’ll never know, but it has translated into a sequel for the commercially successful 2014 sci-fi film.

Director Luc Besson is currently working on a script for Lucy 2, with Besson’s EuropaCorp confirming that the sequel is officially moving forward. And you can thank his more recent movie, the massive box office bomb Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, for that.

Marvel Stars Before They Were Famous

By the time we’re done with The Avengers 4 in 2019, there will have been 22 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only does Marvel Studios have a massive roster of movies, but they have an insanely huge cast that they have to bring together when it’s time for The Avengers to assemble and save the world from an impending threat.

Most of the superheroes in the MCU are quite recognizable names who had long careers before joining comic book movies like Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson, but others didn’t become household names until they starred in the Marvel movies in question. No matter how famous they are now thanks to the MCU, there was a time before these actors and actress were famous, and a new video highlights just what they were doing before you even knew who they were.

Rough Night Trailer

Next month, Cars 3 will likely dominate the box office when it arrives on June 16. But for those who aren’t interested in the extremely troubling and perplexing world of anthropomorphic animated automobiles, there will be counter-programming arriving in theaters that same weekend on the complete opposite end of the spectrum.

Rough Night is bringing some raunchy comedy to the table this summer as we follow five college friends (Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer and Zoë Kravitz) getting back together for a bachelorette party. Of course, things get pretty crazy when these longtime friends do some cocaine and accidentally kill a male stripper. You know, just another girls night out.

Watch the new red band Rough Night trailer below. Read More »

batgirl actress

Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.

Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.
