"I gotta hustle," said Johansson about her acting career.
"Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers.
'Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work — theater, producing... this thing with 'Esquire'..."
March 2009, Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'.
She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

Ever since Marvel announced their massive Phase Three slate back in October, there has been plenty of speculation about who will play Captain Marvel. A number of actresses have been rumored for the role, such as Vikings star Katheryn Winnick, Jessica Chastain, Katee Sackhoff and Emily Blunt. As of now, the project doesn't even have a director attached yet, but Marvel did bring on Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) to write the script. Today, a new rumor surfaced from Meet the Movie Press, that claims Emily Blunt has in fact signed on as Captain Marvel.
This hasn't been confirmed yet, but Heroic Hollywood's El Mayimbe believes that Marvel is "aiming higher" for the role of Carol Danvers. Back in April, a report surfaced that the studio wanted Charlize Theron to star as Captain Marvel, with Angelina Jolie eyed to direct. The report was never confirmed, »
Along with telling us that Emily Blunt may be in line to play Captain Marvel, the latest episode of Meet The Movie press has revealed another interesting rumor. According to co-host El Mayimbe, Felicity Jones will be playing Boba Fett’s daughter in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One.
While unconfirmed, this does open up several interesting questions, chief amongst them being whether her character will be a villain or hero in the film. We know that the plot revolves around the Rebels trying to steal the plans for the Death Star, but which side will Jones’ character take?

The other major question here is that of timing. Rogue One is set before A New Hope, which takes place twenty or so years after Episode III. If you recall, Fett was in his early teens in Episode III. Meaning, that if Jones is playing Fett’s daughter, »

On the most recent episode of Meet The Movie Press, Mark Reilly of The Schmoes Know claimed that he’s heard from sources that Emily Blunt has locked down a deal to play Captain Marvel in the character’s upcoming solo film.
Now, it’s important to note that the show’s co-host, El Mayimbe, claims that Blunt’s casting doesn’t seem too probable, given that the studio hasn’t even found a director yet. Of course, without any official confirmation, it’s impossible to know who’s right.

That being said, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard Blunt’s name come up in regards to the role. She’s been a fan-favorite for a while now and has been linked to the part many times. At the very least, we can probably assume that she’s at least in contention to play the part, »

This won't be the first time you'll have seen Emily Blunt's name mentioned in connection with the Carol Danvers role in Captain Marvel, and depending on when Marvel officially announces who has been cast, it probably won't be the last either. The British actress has been a fan-favorite choice to play this character for years now, and that has led to a lot of baseless rumors being thrown around - but, do we finally have something solid? During today's Meet The Movie press, co-host Mark Reilly of The Schmoes Know said he's heard that it's actually a "done deal", and Blunt has landed the part of Carol Danvers in the movie. Now, as guest host El Mayimbe points put, this seems unlikely given the fact that the studio has yet to hire (or at least announce) a director, But, that doesn't mean Blunt isn't who they want for the »
Just when Tom Cruise had been written off as an action star, he makes a triumphant comeback — at age 53 — with “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.” The summer’s most entertaining popcorn movie not only eclipses “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Jurassic World” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” with its action sequences, it also brings to mind Cruise’s prime days (“Top Gun,” “Jerry Maguire,” etc.) on the Hollywood A-list.
Here are five reasons “Mission: Impossible 5” is the strongest film in Paramount’s 19-year-old spy franchise.
(1)It’s sleeker than any James Bond movie you can remember.
The first “Mission: Impossible,” which opened nearly two decades ago in 1996, was a standard bigscreen reboot of a TV show. But the franchise received a jolt in 2006 with J.J. Abrams’ “Mission Impossible 3,” which interwove the heart-pumping twists of “Alias” (season one) into a theatrical recipe that could give Daniel Craig as 007 a run for his money. »

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation has hit cinema screens, with Tom Cruise's death-defying stunts wowing audiences.
Speaking to USA Today, Pegg said: "When the posters came out, it was me in a jacket, Tom in a jacket, Jeremy in a jacket, Ving [Rhames] in a jacket and Rebecca in leather with her [butt] sticking out. It was like, 'No, don't do that'.
"We're doing something good here. Trying to, at least."
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation has generally won over the critics, although Digital Spy complained about too many stunts, not enough story.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, 2015.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie.
Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the Imf.
Yes, that’s Tom Cruise running on the wing of a cargo plane as it speeds down a runway. Yes, that’s still Cruise hanging from the side of the plane as it’s taking off. And yes, that’s our Tom hanging on the plane at 5000 feet. Why? Simple – because Cruise commits. Cruise delivers. Cruise knows what we want and knows how to get the best from everyone he works with to ensure we get it. He only works with the best, because only the best is good enough. Far too often we have to settle »

Big of budget but disappointing of box office, Edge Of Tomorrow seems an unlikely candidate for a sequel, even in these franchise-happy times. Tom Cruise, however, is still chewing over ways and means of making it happen. Talking to MTV News at the premiere of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, he hinted that the property may yet live again.“I pitched it to [Christopher] McQuarrie and Doug [Liman]," he revealed of his idea for a sequel. "We were there one night and I was like, 'I’ve got an idea for it'."McQuarrie, of course, is Cruise's screenwriter of choice and the man who adapted the Manga property All You Need Is Kill into a pulsing, pacy sci-fi actioner in which Cruise and Emily Blunt tooled up to tackle a species of grabastic extra-terrestrial killing machines. Liman directed the movie and is reconnecting with his star for crime biopic Mena.Should it come to pass, »
McQuarrie and Liman were both involved in the original film.
Cruise added that he was desperate to have Emily Blunt involved as well.
"I pitched it to McQuarrie and Doug," he told MTV News. "We were there one night, and I was like, 'I've got an idea for it'.
"It could be so much fun. Gotta get Emily. I was like, 'Emily, please'. She was like, 'Give me another year, please'."
Edge of Tomorrow starred Cruise as Major William Cage, a man fighting in a battle against aliens but who is »

As Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation makes its way into cinemas, Tom Cruise has attended the New York premiere for the movie, as part of his publicity duties for it. And chatting to MTV at said premiere, the question of last year's Edge Of Tomorrow came up. Specifically: is there a possibility of a sequel?
Turns out there is.
"I pitched it to [Christopher] McQuarrie and Doug [Liman]", he said, referring to the writer and director of the movie. "We were there one night and I was like, I've got an idea for it". Naturally enough, he's not spilling just what that idea was. He did reveal that he's spoken to his Edge Of Tomorrow co-star Emily Blunt about the project too, but that she said to him "give me another year, please".
Although it seemed to get lost in the shuffle when it was release last summer, those who saw the Tom Cruise-led action film Edge of Tomorrow would most likely agree that it was well worth the price of admission.
The film certainly set-up an interesting world and fascinating characters, and although following up with another film isn’t necessary, Cruise recently revealed to MTV that he has an idea for a potential sequel.
He said, “I pitched it to [Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director and Edge of Tomorrow screenwriter Christopher] McQuarrie and [Edge of Tomorrow director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, I’ve got an idea for it.”
Cruise also mentioned how he has approached his co-star Emily Blunt about returning, and said, “It could be so much fun. Gotta get Emily. I was like Emily, please. She was like, ‘give me another year, please.'”
By no means was Edge of Tomorrow a flop, as it grossed close »

Tom Cruise can do no wrong, in my opinion. I was listening to a Grantland podcast episode recorded as part of the site's Tom Cruise Week coverage, and the Grantland team was talking about Cruise as Hollywood's "most effortful" action star. Now that I know effortful is an actual word in the English language, I think it perfectly captures what I like about Cruise. He tries. He tries hard. If a Cruise movie is going to fail -- and these days, if they don't carry the Mission: Impossible brand name, they often do -- it won't be for the star's lack of trying. For instance, I didn't care for Oblivion, but I liked what Cruise was going for and I liked that he was pushing to make something interesting. Cruise is well-known for his impressive stunt work, sitting atop and dangling from the world's tallest building in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, »

Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow wasn't exactly a massive box office blockbuster when it hit theaters last summer, but it still fared quite well. The sci-fi action-thriller took in just over $100 million domestically and $369 million worldwide from a whopping $178 million budget. While the profit margin wasn't quite as big as some were expecting, the film was met with critical acclaim, leading some to wonder if a sequel is even possible. While promoting this weekend's Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise revealed to MTV that he actually pitched his own idea for Edge of Tomorrow 2 to screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie and director Doug Liman, and although he wouldn't divulge any specific plot details, he did add that Emily Blunt will have to be involved.
"I pitched it to [Rogue Nation director and Edge of Tomorrow screenwriter Christopher] McQuarrie and [Edge of Tomorrow director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, I've got an idea for it. It could be so much fun. »
One of the big surprises of last year, the Tom Cruise-led and Doug Liman-directed sci-fi flick "Edge of Tomorrow" proved to be one of the actor's best in years - a "Groundhog Day"-style take on the sci-fi war genre that had both dark humor and inventive ideas.
Liman and the film's co-writer Christopher McQuarrie have become Cruise's go to guys of late, McQuarrie penning and directing both "Jack Reacher" and this week's "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" whilst Cruise is currently filming Liman's new thriller "Mena".
In a new interview with MTV tying into 'Rogue Nation', Cruise admits he's spoken to both of them about an idea he has for a follow-up to 'Edge', and it would also mean he'd have to get his co-star Emily Blunt back:
"I pitched it to [screenwriter Christopher] McQuarrie and [director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, 'I've got an idea for it. »
