Well, nearly a decade later, we will finally get to see that happen. After an exhaustive search, Cate Shortland has signed on to direct the standalone film for Marvel Studios. More on the story 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.

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.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Interview: Avengers, Guardians, and One Unimpressed Thanos

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War is a culmination of 10 years of Marvel Studios films. In the past 18 films that they have released, we’ve seen heroes defend the Earth and the Galaxy from demi-gods, highly intelligent robots, and themselves. Now it all culminates in this one massive event that brings the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy together to defend it against the Mad Titan, himself, Thanos.

We were invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the cast, directors Anthony and Joe Russo, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about the film. But the thing is, no one had actually seen the film, at least as of this post. So there were really no questions the press could work off of other than the trailers and what has already been reported on.

But one thing we know is going to happen is that Thanos is coming, and it’s going to take one giant superheroic collective effort to stop him. So, what can we expect to see from the two groups who will have to stop Thanos from wiping out half of humanity? Who will live? Who will die? Does Thanos actually consider the Avengers and Guardians an actual threat? Check out what they had to say here below.

Avengers: Infinity War Black Order

We all know that the cast of Avengers: Infinity War is big. But it still manages to find a way to increase its numbers. While we knew that there would be at least 22 heroes in the film, we didn’t know about who would be playing Thanos’ Black Order. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo had kept the identities of the actors a secret for some time. But now that is over. In a new interview, the Russos confirm Carrie Coon (Fargo Season 3, The Leftovers), Terry Notary (Planet of the Apes, The Hobbit trilogy), and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor have joined the cast as Thanos’ Black Order. Find out who they will play in the full story here below.

Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War

It’s hard to believe that Marvel Studios has gotten to the point where they’ve released 18 films. Within that stretch, there were more than a handful of ensembles, and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War is a culmination of everything the studio has worked so hard to achieve. As many of us know, all good things must come to an end. Sadly, the film will mark the end for many of the actors since a lot of their contracts are done. But that won’t stop them from enjoying their final moments.

Marvel Studios has released a few new videos that celebrate everything that they have accomplished so far with the help of their fans and another that focuses on the familial bonds that were forged throughout the ten years. Check it all out below.

Thanos wiping out half of humanity to save it sounds logical, but he’ll have a difficult time making it happen when the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy unite to prevent it from happening.

In the past few weeks leading up to the release of Avengers: Infinity War, the marketing team has been releasing a variety of trailers, posters, and TV spots. If there is one thing they all share in common, it’s that there is no Hawkeye. Joking aside, these posters had our heroes together in groups. Now there is a batch of new character posters for you to get excited about, most with an individual hero on it. Check them out below.
