We’ve seen many of Hot Toys upcoming line of 1/6th scale figures from Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron; including the massive Hulkbuster, a suit Iron Man wears to try to handle Bruce Banner when he becomes the Hulk.  Hot Toys has now revealed the next figure in their series of collectibles based on Marvel’s AOU –  a movie accurate 1/6 scale Black Widow. Yes, Hot Toys already had a Black Widow figure from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but this one has a more fabulous hairstyle and other spiffy stylings/accesories.  (more…)

Oh my! What the…?! Oh boy. That in a nutshell is the new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. One of the most anticipated movies of the year gets even more anticipated with each passing trailer, this latest one being the third we’ve seen so far. If memory serves, this was supposed to premiere sometime during Thursday’s airing of the new ABC series American Crime (Yay, corporate synergy!), but like all things concerning The Avengers, the awesomeness of the new footage was too tremendous to contained by a silly thing like “official release dates.” So what can be expected as soon as you press play on the below video? Why ruin the surprise? (more…)

Robert Downey Jr. started off the week with a look at the new Iron Man character poster from Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron, then Mark Ruffalo tweeted out the Hulk’s. Samuel L. Jackson picked up the ball today and tweeted out three new Character posters, Nick Fury, Thor, and the Black Widow. All this is leading to something in a few days, what could it be? (more…)

Agent Carter has been pretty sly with its callbacks and Easter eggs to other Marvel Studios works so far. Maybe that’s because it gets to be off on its own in 1946, or maybe it’s because, unlike the early days of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Carter doesn’t to use fan service to cover for languid storytelling. Regardless, Agent Carter seems to like to reward eagle-eyed viewers, like when Anton Vanko, father of Iron Man 2 villain Ivan Vanko AKA: Whiplash, appeared in episode two. And if you though there was something oddly familiar about another character in this past week’s episode, “The Blitzkrieg Button,” specifically in the way she fights, you may be presently surprised and pleased to get this piece of Easter Egg hunting from one of Agent Carter’s producers.

Yup, Black Widow will be Back for ‘Civil War’

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

This may constitute a spoiler for Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we now have confirmation that the heroine Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson) will be back for Captain America: Civil War. Hardly an unsurprising development, the Widow was a big part of The Winter Soldier, but with a jam-packed cast of characters that includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Bucky (Sebastian Stan), Crossbones (Frank Grillo), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and a mysterious role played by Daniel Bruhl, it wasn’t altogether certain they’re be room for her. Now, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have confirmed that Widow will be back for more adventures, but the question is, as per the comic book the movie is based on, what side will she be on? (more…)

The live action adaptation of the legendary Anime classic Ghost In The Shell, has moved a few steps closer towards its final destination on the big screen. This is in part due to the studio locking down Scarlett Johansson to play the lead role of Major Motoko Kusanagi. However, although the film is moving forward production wise, there is still a long way to go before the big-budget live-action feature Ghost In The Shell makes it to the theaters. (more…)

Back in October the Internet rumor mill had Dream Works offering Scarlett Johansson the lead role in their live action adaptation of Masamune Shirow‘s Ghost in the Shell. Word out today is that Johansson has accepted the role that should spur Paramount to come on-board as a co-producer. Does this mean that everything is good to go… well not exactly. (more…)

Marvel fans have been clamoring for a stand alone Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) movie since she first hit the big screen in Iron Man 2. While no one can say Marvel isn’t using her character, she played a huge part in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and we can expect more big things from our favorite ex-Russian spy in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but why not feature Black Widow in Marvel’s first stand alone female superhero movie? Now, not only has comic book writer Nathan Edmondson has joined the BW Stand Alone Movie Cause, he’s written a six page script showing what a Black Widow movie opening might look like. (more…)

Dumping more napalm on the burning flame of desire for a female-led superhero movie, Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall has said aloud that he’s all for bringing a solo Black Widow movie to cinema’s everywhere, and it’s actually his Marvel dream project. The chorus has grown steadily louder for Marvel Studios to give the Russian spy-turned Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.-turned-Avenger her own adventure, and Scarlett Johansson seems more than up to the task of carrying her own comic book adventure (her current pregnancy notwithstanding), but why does Marshall want to make his Marvel movie Black Widow-centric? He recently explained his rationale in a new interview… (more…)
