Scarlett Johansson Discusses Her “Unique” Ghost In The Shell Character

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In just over a month’s time, Rupert Sanders’ somewhat controversial live-action adaptation of classic manga/anime, Ghost in the Shell, will be released into theaters, and star Scarlett Johansson has begun the process of promoting the film with the first of what will no doubt be a plethora of interviews.

Empire Magazine recently debuted a new image of Johansson’s Major (Major Motoko Kusanagi in the original story) sitting on a souped-up motorcycle, and now they’ve published their full interview with the hugely in-demand actress. During their discussion with her, The Avengers star provides readers with an insight into her character: a cyborg crime-fighter created for warfare, who still retains her human “soul.”

She’s living a unique experience, as somebody who has an idea of who she thinks she was, and then who she is now, and the person that she feels she is, this sort of »

Can We Give The DC Extended Universe A Little Credit?

24 February 2017 2:56 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

"The DC Extended Universe is in trouble." That’s a lot of the narrative surrounding this universe from Warner Bros that began with Man of Steel in 2012 and continued in 2016 with Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. Frankly, a lot of fans don’t seem to like these movies, and some have seen the last two films on the slate as a desperate attempt to catch up to Marvel’s own Cinematic Universe before they’ve earned their place alongside them.

But is that really the case? Do they really deserve all the naysayers surrounding them these days?

We believe the answer is twofold, as in "yes, and no."

First, let’s start by getting the negative press out of the way. The Flash lost two directors in a year, and The Batman lost Affleck at its helm, seeming to imply a lack of faith in the project. Meanwhile, they »

Joss Whedon talks about his rejected Wonder Woman movie

21 February 2017 12:53 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back before Joss Whedon hit the big time with his colossal Marvel hits The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, the director had his heart set on helming a Wonder Woman movie which Warner Bros. ultimately rejected.

One can’t imagine Whedon gets many projects rejected nowadays, considering the considerable success of his work on Marvel’s Avengers films, but this wasn’t always the case as back in the early 2000’s the director had his script for a Wonder Woman movie turned down, and Whedon recently spoke about the failed project during an interview with Empire Magazine.

“I worked really hard on that movie and it meant a lot [to me], but I don’t know if what I was trying to do would fit in with what [the studio’s] vision is. I had to take on the film that, well, nobody liked… We just saw different movies, and at the price range »

Avengers: Infinity War - Thanos’ Goal In The Film Revealed, And It May Not Have To Do With Death

14 February 2017 9:06 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

“Humans... They are not the cowering wretches we were promised. They stand. They are unruly, and therefore cannot be ruled. To challenge them is to court death.”

It was on that ominous quote from The Avengers that a big, hulking brute turned towards us to reveal Thanos, one of the biggest bads in the Marvel comic book universe. Those familiar with the epic Infinity Gauntlet storyline knew right away that the line, “court death,” was likely to be written as “court Death,” with a capital D. In an attempt to win the affections of the character of Death, Thanos sets off on a quest to kill off a good chunk of the universe — and thus the events of Infinity Gauntlet are set forth.

Given that quote from the mysterious character at the end of Avengers, it seemed to make sense that we’d eventually get that plotline of Thanos working tirelessly to win over Death. »

Black Widow Spinoff: Scarlett Johansson Comments On The Film’s Possibility

13 February 2017 3:07 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If there’s one character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe who seems perfect for a spinoff film, it’s Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. I know I’m not alone when I say that before the character was first introduced in Iron Man 2, I didn’t think Johansson’s portrayal of the the femme fatale would come across well. Heck, even after Iron Man 2, I wasn’t sure. Sure, the film managed to convince that she could kick some bad guy ass (that much they were able to accomplish), but could I imagine her actually standing up in her own film?

Not just yet.

The Avengers was the first movie where I started to legitimately buy into her take on the character. That’s not to say that she was ever bad. For some reason, I had it in my mind that she wasn’t as great as she could be, »

Inside No. 9 series 3: “We’re not sadists!”

13 February 2017 7:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Feb 14, 2017

Ace anthology series Inside No. 9 returns next week for its third run. Here’s what its creators had to say at the press launch…

Having made audiences wince at characters put through all manner of horrors—murder, suicide, demonic possession—sadism would seem a fair accusation to level at Inside No. 9’s creators. It doesn’t stand of course, because the show’s so good that it’s all pleasure and no pain. Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith don’t seek to make people suffer in writing the series. “I wouldn’t say that’s what we enjoy, we’re not sadists!” Pemberton laughs at the series three press launch. “For us, it’s all about the narrative and taking that half-hour we have for each episode and weaving the story that takes you on the biggest journey.”

Marvel Releases Chill-Inducing Production Featurette For Avengers: Infinity War

11 February 2017 6:12 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Okay, I'll admit it. I've been a little hard on Marvel Studios lately. In my last few editorials that touched on Marvel, I kinda...sorta...may have...gave the impression that I think their movies are "safe, corporate, predictable, softball entertainment with low stakes and crappy villains." And while I definitely do feel that way on a few levels, I think I've been a little too hard on them. Cause there's good in there. A lot of good, in fact. 

This new featurette, freshly released by Marvel Studios, shines a spotlight on everything that's not just good but great about the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU).

The video, entitled "Action...Avengers!" takes us behind the scenes as the studio enters production on one of the most ambitious films ever made, Avengers: Infinity War. You can check it out right here.

The Russo Brothers are currently hard at work in Atlanta shooting Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, a shoot that is expected to take most of 2017 to complete. The next two Avengers movies are going to be the culmination of 10 years worth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will see the Marvel heroes fighting their greatest foe yet; Thanos.

Marvel dropped the video online out of nowhere, completely surprising fans with their first look at the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

A Lifeline For Firefly? Fox Would Consider Reboot On One Condition

9 February 2017 8:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The X-Files, Prison Break, 24: Legacy – three once-dormant TV franchises that have each been given a new lease of life at Fox, to varying degrees of success. Will the network adopt a similar strategy for Firefly? Perhaps, but only if series creator and director Joss Whedon returns at the helm.

That was the resounding message coming out of last month’s Television Critics Association, when Rotten Tomatoes relayed various statements from Fox executives. And so, amid talk of the upcoming X-Men series, not to mention Prison Break‘s return in April, the network briefly touched on the status of Firefly, which has remained in stasis since being yanked off the airwaves in 2003. Sheer fan demand willed Serenity into existence two years later, but there’s been nary a mention of a potential reboot ever since.

Much of that comes down to Joss Whedon’s bustling slate, as he’s since »

Scarlett Johansson Covers Marie Claire Magazine; Comments On Ghost In The Shell Whitewashing Controversy

9 February 2017 4:38 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Accusations of whitewashing were leveled at the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie when the distinctly non-Asian Scarlett Johansson was cast in the lead role of "The Major" (Major Motoko Kusanagi in the original manga). Though arguments have been made that the character should be played by the person best suited to the role regardless of ethnicity (something director Rupert Sanders has echoed), the general consensus seems to be that the part should have went to an Asian actress. The Avengers star addressed the controversy for the first time during an interview with Marie Claire, without really delving into the issue at hand. "I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person. Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive. Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. »
