While promoting her upcoming film Morgan, the folks over at iGN had a chance to talk to Kate Mara and was asked about the possibility of her returning to a Fantastic Four sequel where she played Sue Storm.
"Oh yeah I would love to be a part of a Fantastic Four sequel or whatever they may or may not have in store for us. And I know that all the guys feel the same way. We loved working with each other and we would love to actually play these characters in another way somehow in the future. I have no idea if that’s actually true, if that will happen. But I would be really happy to do it."

A few weeks back, it was confirmed that Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson was cast as Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel in the upcoming Marvel film...Captain Marvel. The film is still a solid three years away, so the studio has plenty of time between now and then, but the character is likely to show up in 2018's Avengers: Infinity War, a good year or so before her own standalone film.
As such, it makes sense that Marvel Studios would be hard at work looking for someone to helm Captain Marvel. Given that Black Panther director Ryan Coogler had a hand in the introduction of the character in Captain America: Civil War so that the character would have consistency between films, it's a no-brainer that Marvel would want to do the same thing with Captain Marvel.
So who's up to direct Marvel's first female-led solo film? »

Two weeks ago, Nate Parker was a different man — on the verge of making it on Hollywood’s A-list with his American period drama “The Birth of a Nation.” He strolled into a restaurant in Sherman Oaks, Calif., with his 6-year-old daughter in tow. “My wife just had a baby, so I’m taking the burden off her,” he told a Variety reporter about his fatherly duties. He talked about how his oldest of five daughters is gearing up for her freshman year in college, and how he recently surprised her with a visit to New York to see “Hamilton.” And he seemed most proud of the legacy he was leaving for his children as the director, star, producer, and writer of “The Birth of a Nation,” the Sundance Film Festival darling about the slave revolt of 1831 led by Nat Turner, which sold for a record-shattering $17.5 million to Fox Searchlight. »

[Update] Added Kevin Smith's comment and my own response at the bottom of the article 8/17/2016, 2:22 p.m.] I've been harassed online. A lot. So much so that when I go to visit my parents my dad will ask, "Are you still getting those bad comments online?" He's not the only one. Kevin Smith has penned a note about his daughter's harassment. Leslie Jones, Daisy Ridley, too many of the women of the Olympics, and too many others to count. Online harassment has been getting worse and worse. Harley Quinn Smith has always been in the spotlight thanks to her famous dad but now more than ever since she starred in his film Yoga Hosers. But a recent comment on her Instagram account compelled him to respond publicly. He wrote on Facebook: What it's like to be my daughter: 17 year old @harleyquinnsmith_ received this message simply for the heinous crime »

This story contains spoilers for Captain America: Civil War.
Having being introduced on the big screen in Captain America: Civil War, Chadwick Boseman’s take on Black Panther will next be heading to his own standalone movie. Said film is due in cinemas in February 2018, and it’s being co-penned by Joe Robert Cole, who recently worked on the excellent miniseries The People Vs O J Simpson.
Chatting to Slashfilm, he’s been talking about the character of Black Panther, and the upcoming movie. “First, I think Chadwick did a phenomenal job in Civil War in setting the tone for him being a king, for the nobility”, Cole said. “At the end, I thought his turn was fantastic and how he rose above his own vengeance. I think »
Let me start by saying Marvel Studios ain't playing around at all with this Black Panther movie! So far every bit of news that has come out about this movie has been nothing short of spectacular! Starting from the very beginning with the announcement that Chadwick Boseman will be the lead actor, and add the possibility that Andy Serkis will be the main villain, then you add that the Creed director Ryan Coogler will be running the show and help writing the script along with the brilliant writer Joe Robert Cole, and if that's not awesome enough... the studio has revealed recently that Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, and Danai Gurira will be joining the movies cast. Wow Wow and Wow!!! For a movie that doesn't even start filming until early 2017 that's a whole lot of awesomeness early! Now just when I thought it couldn't possibly get any better...it just did! »
Joe Robert Cole has had great success with the FX series The People Vs. O.J. Simpson but he's currently writing Ryan Coogler's Black Panther film, something a lot of fans are highly anticipating. Hear what he had to say about his approach to the fictional African country of Wakanda and where it stands in the Marvel cinematic universe. Black Panther is set for release February 16, 2018 and so far star Lupita Nyong'o is the only one giving out any kind of concrete information on the movie.

In accepting the prize—which in prior years went to filmmakers Benh Zeitlin, Ryan Coogler, Damien Chazelle and Marielle Heller—Parker announced that he and the cast and producing team behind The Birth Of A Nation would fund a fellowship for… »

IndieWire recently published a pair of lists that singled out 25 working female filmmakers that we deemed “ready” to make a blockbuster. From many readers, we got this response: “But do they even want to?”
It seemed like a strange question: Has anyone ever wondered, much less asked, if male directors were interested in big-budget movies? Nevertheless, we reached out to the filmmakers on our lists, and the response was nearly unanimous: Yes, of course they do.
That said, it wasn’t the first time they’d been asked. And, as it turns out, there are a number of reasons that might make them decide to steer clear.
“That Dream Is Not Gendered”
“Most filmmakers dream of breaking into Hollywood with a short film or indie feature and then getting recruited by the studios to make bigger movies, »

One of the many successes that came out of Captain America: Civil War was the addition of two new characters to the McU—Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland). Though the latter will be getting his own flick next year, we still have to wait till 2018 before we get to see Panther pounce back onto the big screen, courtesy of director Ryan Coogler.

Building on its appearance across both Age of Ultron and Civil War, Wakanda’s status as a key cornerstone of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will only continue to grow and grow.
That’s according to Black Panther screenwriter Joe Robert Cole (The People Vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), who offered up some new details pertaining to Ryan Coogler’s much-anticipated standalone movie while chatting with /Film.

First and foremost, Cole showered praise on Chadwick Boseman’s breakout performance as T’Challa in Captain America: Civil War earlier in the year, and is excited to foster this debut as a springboard to develop the character further in two years’ time.
“First, I think Chadwick did a phenomenal job in Civil War in setting the tone for him being a king, for the nobility,” Cole said. “At the end, I thought his turn was fantastic »

Ever since Selma was released in 2012, Ava DuVernay has been one of the most sought after talents in the industry. The movie was nominated for several Academy Awards and was met with nearly universal critical praise. That movie may have put her on everyone's radar, but it is far from her first. DuVernay has been working in Hollywood for a long time, and that hard work is paying off in a big way, as she is about to break new ground for women in Hollywood.
According to Deadline, DuVernay's upcoming live-action adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time for Disney is set to enter production with a budget of more than $100 million. That makes her the first woman of color in history to direct a movie with a budget of $100 million or more, and only the third woman period to direct a movie with such a budget.

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present and future.
Earlier this week, the state of California released a seemingly innocuous list of upcoming films set to receive tax credits for their production. Among that list — which only includes films that are operating with budgets larger than $75 million — there was at least one title that stood out in a huge, boundary-busting way. As Women and Hollywood confirms, Ava DuVernay’s next film, a big screen adaptation of the Madeleine L’Engle classic “A Wrinkle in Time,” will be made with a budget that will exceed $100 million. That a female director is helming such a deep-pocketed live-action film is news in and of itself — DuVernay joins a select club that so far only includes Kathryn Bigelow (“K-19: The Widowmaker”) and Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”) — but that’s not all, because DuVernay is now starting her own club. »

Black Panther will start production in January. However, all we know for sure is that Creed director Ryan Coogler will be at the helm with Chadwick Boseman as the title superhero, Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) as the head of the Dora Milaje (a security force that protects the King of Wakanda), Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia […]

Blackout for Human Rights has released a series of videos, in support of the #FreedomNow movement, featuring a slew of celebrities including “Selma” director Ava DuVernay, Ryan Coogler, David Oyelowo, Terrence J, La La Anthony and many more, to remind people that their lives matter and also the lives of the victims of police brutality.
The three videos feature the artists talking about their accomplishments and the special moments in their lives. They each end their stories recounting the incidents of victims such as Sandra Bland, Tanisha Anderson, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Akai Gurley and more.
“I would have never had the opportunity to write and direct the first major motion picture centering on the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr,” states DuVernay. “I would have never had the opportunity to do any of that if officers had tased me, then taken me down and forced me on the pavement, »

Michael B. Jordan has been riding quite a wave these last few years. The actor, whose first big break was a recurring role in the first season of the revered HBO series "The Wire," has been on the tip of the industry's tongue ever since his star-making turn in Ryan Coogler's Fruitvale Station. That film, and Chronicle before it, cemented the actor as someone to look out for. Suddenly, he landed roles in several blockbuster films: Fantastic Four, Creed, and Black Panther.
His budding star power helped him to survive the bomb that Ff turned out to be, and his starring role in Coogler's Creed later that same year ensured that no one even remembered he was in the notorious flop. With the turbulent 2015 now behind him, all eyes are now on his work in Black Panther. The Marvel film will mark the third time Jordan has worked with Coogler, »

Over the weekend at San Diego Comic Con though, director Ryan Coogler spoke with Vulture and revealed the comic story arcs that influenced him and his co-screenwriter. Coogler says Ta-Nehisi Coates' recent best-selling run was a massive inspiration:
"Oh, I love it, man. I mean, [Coates] is my favorite writer right now in the world. Since being turned on to his work, I'm reading everything that he does. His nonfiction work, especially.
But what he's doing with 'Panther' is just incredible. You can really see his background as a poet in some of the dialogue. And what Brian Stelfreeze is doing with the visuals in that book. And some of the questions that it's asking. It's just inspiring for [co-screenwriter] Joe Robert Cole and myself."
Coogler also says he doesn't see Black Panther as »

With Marvel's Black Panther emerging as one of the most hotly anticipated films to come out of San Diego's Comic-Con, star Chadwick Boseman sat down with People to reveal what bringing the original black superhero to his first solo big screen adventure means to him, especially during the current racially charged mood in American society. "It's a lot of different things put together in a way that's just cool and you've never seen before," Boseman said of the character he introduced on screen in this year's blockbuster Captain America: Civil War and reprising in the solo film scheduled for the »
