It's been rumored for the past few months that 'The Avengers 2' would introduce the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to the ensemble, but this came such early on in the script process that it was taken with a grain of salt. Well, put away the seasoning: writer/director Joss Whedon has confirmed that these characters will have a role in the highly anticipated sequel.

For most first time directors, attracting big names to your movie is a huge challenge, but when you are a first-time director who also happens to be Ryan Gosling, you probably have to beat back the talent with an oar or something. The latest piece of the 'How to Catch a Monster' ensemble is the increasingly busy Oscar nominee, Saoirse Ronan.

Reason to not be excited for 'The Host': it's based on a novel by Stephanie "Twilight" Meyer, who, for all of her success, really can't write or plot her way out of a paper bag. Reason to be excited for 'The Host': it was adapted and directed by Andrew Niccol, a man who, despite his duds, still made 'Gattaca' once upon a time. Now, two new featurettes about the film have emerged...will they change anyone's mind about the film?

News Round-Up: Casting 'Cinderella' and Creating a 'God Particle'

Last week, the news broke that the ever-wonderful Cate Blanchett was close to joining director Mark Romanek's 'Cinderella' in the role of the evil stepmother, firmly establishing it as the Hollywood Revision Of A Classic Fairy Tale to watch out for. It still feels odd that the director of 'One Hour Photo' and 'Never Let Me Go' is making a Cinderella movie, but putting quality actors on the screen is the first step in giving us hope. On the heels of the Blanchett news, Variety reports that the short list for the title role is down to three actresses: Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander and Gabriella Wilde. You'll probably recognize Ronan from 'Atonement,' 'The Lovely Bones' and 'Hanna' and if you were unlucky enough to see 'The Three Musketeers' you may remember Wilde, but Vikander seems to be a newcomer, making this role her potential big break and her own potential Cinderella story. Life imitating art and so forth.
