Black Widow Avengers Age Of Ultron Header

Things are progressing quickly for the long-awaited Black Widow standalone film. Earlier this year, Marvel Studios brought in Jac Schaeffer (TiMER, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure) to pen the script. This was followed by meetings with Deniz Gamze Erguven (the Turkish movie Mustang), Chloe Zhao (The Rider), and Amma Asante (A United Kingdom) as potential directors.

Now it looks like Marvel has narrowed it down to three. According to new reports, Cate Shortland (Lore, Berlin Syndrome), Maggie Betts (Novitiate), and Asante are the most likely candidates. More on the story below.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

It is going to be interesting to see where the Marvel Cinematic Universe goes from here after the fallout of Avengers: Infinity War. But one thing is for sure, Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the kind of uplifting comedy we need to see after Infinity War‘s incredibly sad ending.

Disney has released a set of new character posters for the film, which reveals our first look at Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne. Check out all of them, below.

Black Panther is the 18th Marvel Studios film to be released. Now just a few months after its initial release, it is coming home on Blu-ray and digital.

Director Ryan Coogler presents audiences with a new kind of superhero film. By weaving in social issues – like culture, identity, and representation – that affect us today, he turns what would have been an ordinary comic book movie into an extraordinary crowning achievement. It’s certainly not a risky film, but one that needed to be made. For there is a superhero in everyone, and it’s high time that we get to see more representation on the big screen. Check out my review of Black Panther on 4K below.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Ending Is Real; ‘Avengers 4’ Will Have Surprises

Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany in Avengers: Infinity War

A lot of us are still reeling after the ending of Avengers: Infinity War. With a massive superhero ensemble like this, we knew there would be some casualties, but I don’t think any of us were prepared for what Marvel gave us. Obviously, the upcoming sequel will have some of the heroes who didn’t appear in Infinity War make an appearance in Avengers 4, even a certain hero who could only be reached via retro technology. So as many of us are still coping, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are talking about how Avengers 4 will not reverse what was done in Infinity War. That ending was real and permanent, they say. But we can expect to see some surprises in Avengers 4. Check out what the two had to say here below.

Warning: major spoilers ahead, so if you haven’t seen the film, I suggest you do not continue reading on any further.

Thanos in Avengers Infinity War

Yes, James Cameron says he hopes Avengers fatigue hits audiences sometime soon. But with Avengers: Infinity War grossing $630 million worldwide in its opening weekend, that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. The highly anticipated Marvel Studios film made its debut last weekend, and broke several box office records (and our emotions, but that’s a subject for another post). The full story here below.

Black Widow In Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War may be hitting theaters this weekend, but many of us are already looking towards the future of the MCU. While we know films like Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel are currently awaiting release, films like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel are the few films that have been confirmed for a Phase 4 release. As exciting as all of that sounds, it’s hard to believe that there has been no Black Widow movie. Well, until now that is.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Jac Schaeffer had been tapped to write the screenplay for the Black Widow standalone film. And now it appears that Marvel is looking at a few female directors to helm the film. More on the story below.
