Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is one of the most interesting characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, particularly given her incredibly intriguing back story briefly explored in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Fans have long wondered when or if Natasha Romanoff would get her own solo movie, and while Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has admitted that he’s open to the idea, the studio has yet to reveal any plans for a Black Widow spinoff. But that could still change, and with Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo in her corner, a Black Widow movie could be closer than ever.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ International Trailer Is a Bit Shorter, But No Less Sweeter

“Do you really wanna punch your way out of this?” That’s what Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow asks Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers as a civil disagreement between Cap and Iron Man develops into all out war in the new international trailer for Captain America: Civil War. It’s a little shorter and more streamlined than the first official domestic trailer, but that doesn’t make it any less effective — in fact, this one might be better than the first.

The Mediator sounds like a superhero name all its own, but that's how Black Widow apparently sees herself and her place in Captain America: Civil War. While previous Marvel films have firmly established a good working relationship between Scarlett Johansson's character and Steve Rogers, she'll find herself on the other side of the battle in the studio's next outing — but it's a little more complicated than that.

With Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans promising a big surprise on Jimmy Kimmel Live, we knew it had to be something special — that something is the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Not a teaser, but an actual, full trailer, dramatically highlighting the growing divide between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, which will divide the Avengers and pit them against one another in what could be Marvel's most epic film yet.

Pre-production on Rupert Sanders’ (director of Snow White and the Huntsman) live-action adaptation of the seminal manga series Ghost in the Shell has been moving right along, accumulating cast members and staying right on schedule for a March 31 release in 2017. Scarlett Johansson has already signed on to play the lead role, a skilled female hacker who breaks up cybercrime in the employ of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission’s covert ops unit. Earlier this month, Borgen actor (and Johansson’s former co-star in the mind-bending Lucy) Pilou Asbæk joined the cast as her second-in-command, a lethal fighter in his own right.

The dulcet tones of Matthew McConaughey are capable of anything. They bring an easygoing charm to the variety of laid-back characters that he plays on film, they were almost able to gloss over the fact that nothing McConaughey was saying in those Lincoln commercials

The gender wage gap is an issue that affects women in almost every single career field, but it’s recently become a more high-profile issue as actors have been speaking out about their income disparity. Jennifer Lawrence recently penned an essay on the subject, with actors like Emily Blunt, Emma Watson, Jessica Chastain and even Bradley Cooper chiming in. And while the wage gap battle rages on, here’s one you can add to the winning column: Scarlett Johansson made more money than the majority of her male co-stars in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Gamergate Movie in the Works With Scarlett Johansson Eyed to Star

by Britt Hayes November 6, 2015 @ 5:54 PM
Unless you’ve been living under a blissfully isolated internet-rock, then you’re at least passingly familiar with GamerGate, the misogyny scandal that began last year and continues to be a huge issue (SXSW recently canceled — and uncanceled — two GG-related events). We’ve been wondering just how long it would take for someone to make a movie based on the controversy, and the wait appears to be over.
