Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame is easily one of the most anticipated films of the year. Following the emotionally distressing ending to Avengers: Infinity War, our heroes and the entire universe itself is in shambles. But now they will have to dust themselves off to avenge their fallen brethren.

While many of us have only seen what the surviving heroes have gone through in a teaser trailer and Super Bowl spot, test audiences have seen versions of the film. And if these test audiences like what they see, Avengers: Endgame could run as long as three hours. More on the report below.

Avengers: Endgame

Around this time last year, Marvel Studios excited fans with a new look at Avengers: Infinity War. The mega-ensemble film was everything fans expected it to be. However, they were all emotionally crushed when Thanos (Josh Brolin) did what he did at the end (let’s just leave it at that right here, for those who may not be caught up). The first Avengers: Endgame trailer revealed how devastated Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are after their loss. Now, it’s up to Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) to defeat the Mad Titan or experience even more loss. Check out the latest look at the upcoming sequel here below.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Black Widow Scarlett Johansson

This week, a new study showed that female-led films have outperformed male films at the box office, proving that there are audiences who are interested in seeing female characters at the lead. The number of female directors taking the helm of films has increased as well, with many of them going behind the camera for a variety of genres. However, it looks like there are some studios who do not have faith in some female directors.

Zama director Lucrecia Martel, who was among the frontrunners to direct the Black Widow currently being developed, reveals why she turned down Marvel Studios’ long-awaited standalone film. In a new interview, she says she turned down the project because she learned that she would not be overseeing the action scenes. More on the report, below.

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.

‘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.

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.

It has been ten long years since Marvel Studios began its comic book movie journey. Starting the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), we have now reached Avengers: Infinity War, a one of a kind superhero ensemble film so big that it takes heroes from across the globe and the galaxy to defend and protect all life from the likes of Thanos (Josh Brolin), a powerful force who is gathering six Infinity Stones together, so that he may use them to wipe out half of humanity and bring forth balance to the universe.

Though some of these ensemble superhero films may be too big for their own good, Avengers: Infinity War finds a way to make it work. The chemistry between the cast is almost perfect, the action is superb, and the scope of the film is epic. This film is the embodiment of the can’t-miss summer movie event. And what makes this so much more different than its 18 predecessors is that it is able to make the balancing act work.

Check out my full review of Avengers: Infinity War here below.
