Well, it's no solo Black Widow movie, but a super-powered Scarlett Johnasson? Where to do we buy tickets?
Between 'La Femme Nikita' and 'The Professional,' Luc Besson has a penchant for creating memorable female action heroes. He's looking to add to that roster with this summer's 'Lucy,' which casts Scarlett Johansson as a drug mule who accidentally swallows what she's transporting and finds herself gifted with superpowers. Um, yeah. Okay. We can get behind that premise.
We're much closer to seeing 'Captain America 2' (dubbed 'The Winter Soldier') than the anticipation might lead you to believe, and you'll finally get to see what many critics are already suggesting is Marvel's best movie to date come its April 4 premiere. To keep you somewhat satiated and to go along with your vast library of trailers, TV spots and behind-the-scenes footage, Marvel released a massive gallery with more than 60 new photos from 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'
Last month, Marvel head Kevin Feige confirmed development on a solo 'Black Widow' movie, but just a few weeks after that, Scarlett Johansson announced she was pregnant with her first child. While her 'Avengers 2' schedule was accelerated to avoid any conflict, it may impact any plans for the 'Black Widow' movie. Now, Marvel says they "don't know" if or when the movie will come out and that another female superhero could beat her to the punch.
With Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy recently announced, it's fair to say fans were a little worried (if only in the back of their minds) that her stake in the Marvel landscape could be lessened for the time being. But rest assured, she's more a part of it than ever before, and a new featurette delving into her Black Widow return in 'Captain America 2' shows she's just as badass.
Marvel dropped an extended 'Captain America 2' trailer, giving us one major look at the next installment and exciting fans to the point of mass hysteria. Well, perhaps it's not as dramatic as that, but this is the most extensive look yet at the sequel, officially titled 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'
If Marvel decided to stop releasing TV spots and trailers for 'Captain America 2,' we probably wouldn't complain. After all, we've been sold on this movie since the moment it was announced - we just want to know when we can get in line. Regardless, they've gone ahead and unleashed another lengthy TV spot and we've gone ahead and watched it. And it still looks really good.
Congratulations are in order for Scarlett Johansson, who is expecting her first child with fiance Romain Dauriac. (We hope you have a happy, healthy child that will never be bothered by parasitic paparazzi with no respect for your privacy.) However, with basic human decency out of the way, one of the biggest questions on the minds of Marvel fans is, how will this joyous news affect production on 'The Avengers 2,' set to begin later this year?
As Marvel ramps up its marketing for 'Captain America 2,' a new TV spot has hit the airwaves. While it does do well in teasing fans with never-before-seen footage of Chris Evans' upcoming turn as the Cap, it seemingly spoils a major moment from the movie. (Continue reading at your own risk.)
When previously asked about the lack of female superhero movies, Marvel chief Kevin Feige has remained diplomatic, yet non-committal. During the press tour for 'Thor 2,' Feige's comments were "I'm not sure when that will be" and "we'll see what happens." Not exactly a ringing endorsement for a female-led Marvel movie. Apparently, things have changed over the past few months and now Feige, when asked specifically about Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, said that they are actively developing her own solo movie.
If you need to be sold on 'Under the Skin', we probably don't need to do more than to mention Scarlett Johansson and the "graphic nudity" in the film's R-rating. But, if you must know more, we've got a trippy (and sexy), new trailer to share for the upcoming sci-fi thriller.
