SNL won’t return for another week with Avengers: Age of Ultron star Scarlett Johansson suiting up on May 2, and #NoSpoilers, but we already know how Season 40 will end. Hot Pursuit star Reese Witherspoon will host the subsequent week, while Louis C.K. will take the stage for the May 16 SNL finale.

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Merchandise Is Seriously Lacking Black Widow

Here we go again. Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow was largely absent in the merchandise from the first Avengers film, and you would think that Disney might learn their lesson for Age of Ultron, but they sadly have not. Once again, the lady Avenger is suspiciously left out of the fun in Disney’s newest round of merchandise, featured on only three items. Sorry, boys and girls, but if you’re a Black Widow fan, you’ll just have to make your own action figure.

There’s a lot to like about Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the coolest thing about it is the way it reclaims the comic book part of the phrase “comic-book movie.” Rather than using these characters to do something “edgy” or “adult” or “important,” or sanding down their quirkier edges to appeal to as broad and mainstream an audience as possible, Age of Ultron doubles down on its source material’s geeky origins.

‘Black Widow’ Solo Movies Have Been Discussed, According to Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson made an impressive, ass-kicking debut in Iron Man 2, but she really solidified herself as more than just a resourceful spy with amazing gymnastic skills in the first Avengers film. Since then, we’ve been dying for Black Widow to get her own solo movie, and as excited as we’ve all be for Marvel to make their female-centric superhero movie debut with Captain Marvel, it’s odd that the studio hasn’t announced a Black Widow film yet. According to Scarlett Johansson, it’s been a topic of conversation.

When an actor signs on to play a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they typically aren’t signing up for a single movie. They’re signing up for a whole bunch — sometimes as many as nine films — so Marvel can plan ahead for years, scoping out where a character can go over the course of several appearances. But contracts run out and some actors managed to finagle their way in without signing up for a bunch of movies in advance. So superhero movie fans always wonder just how many more times they’ll get to see Chris Evans play Captain America or Robert Downey Jr. play Iron Man. How many movies are left on their contract? What’s next?

If The Avengers feel like one big, slightly dysfunctional family, it's because they are. And that applies to off-screen as well as on. Playing off that chemistry, the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron — Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner — appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and played a rousing game of Family Feud.

SNL will let the Empire cool its heels a bit after Taraji P Henson dropped Cookie all over the stage this weekend, but May 2 will bring out the big guns in the wake of Avengers: Age of Ultron. The Black Widow herself, Scarlett Johansson will take the SNL stage for a fourth time as our first May host.

Thanks to the fine folks at Dr. Pepper (who make the world taste better, if memory serves), we have a brand new Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette. The latest video takes us behind the scenes of the upcoming super-film with director Joss Whedon and the cast as they explain what makes each of the Avengers so special — and what makes the challenges in the sequel so particularly challenging. As an added bonus, there’s also a little helping of new footage on display.

The Latest ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Trailer Puts the Spotlight on Black Widow

We’re approaching that point in the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ marketing campaign where it can start to feel like we’ve already seen every big stunt and setpiece in the film before the movie’s even opened. But the new ‘Avengers’ trailer reveals yet another amazingly cool beat that’s never been seen before: Chris Evans’ Captain America loses his shield in battle with James Spader’s Ultron, so Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow snatches it while trailing the fight on a motorcycle, then slides under a semi-truck Fast & Furious-style and tosses it up to Cap so he can continue the battle. Awesome awesome awesome. (Marvel’s going to try to use that as a pull-quote on the poster, aren’t they?)
