There are some movies that feel personal because of the relationship the writer, director or actors have to the material. 'Chef' -- written, directed and starring Jon Favreau -- doesn't just feel personal, it feels like it's ripped directly from the pages of Favreau's subconscious diary. While it's a charming enough indie film about the connection between professional and personal passions that also serves as a fascinating look inside the psychology of a major Hollywood director.
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.
When 'Thor: The Dark World' hits Blu-ray, DVD and 3D Combo Pack on February 25, Marvelites will be treated to an exclusive 'Captain America 2' preview, which goes behind the scenes of Cap's new venture to Washington, D.C. and will feature brand-new footage. Before you watch the featurette in the comfort of your own home, this highly anticipated look has made its way online.
We don't know about you, but after yesterday's new 'Captain America 2' Super Bowl trailer, this sequel catapulted to the top of our most anticipated films of 2014 list. Like 'Thor 2' and 'Iron Man 3,' the latest adventure of Marvel's patriotic hero looks to take the groundwork established by previous films and take everything to a truly exciting and fresh place.
A new batch of images from the film have made their way online, showcasing the film's large cast of heroes and villains.
