"I gotta hustle," said Johansson about her acting career. "I’m a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business."
"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.

It.s the showdown of the century. Marvel.s Captain America 3 is coming off the heels of a megahit, and following the events of Avengers: Age Of Ultron. And Warner Bros. is doing the unthinkable, teaming DC's two biggest superheroes in Batman Vs. Superman, refusing to back down. While those release dates are more than two years away, people keep expecting one of them to back down. And it looks like Warner Bros. is inching forward. The UK Film Distributor's Association just unveiled a couple of release dates for 2016. One is Universal.s The Mummy, which will bow on April 22nd, 2016, the same release date it has in America. But there is the Batman/Superman film, clocking in at April 29th, one week before its American release on May 6, 2016. We have reached out to Warner Bros. for confirmation, and are awaiting a reply. So, to recap: Marvel seized the date, »
Joss Whedon is currently globetrotting and filming "Avengers: Age of Ultron," but back in the old U.S.A., a new film written by the "Buffy" mastermind is about to premiere. "In Your Eyes" is one of several films debuting this week at the Tribeca Film Festival, but you may not have heard about it. Director Brin Hill filmed the sci-fi romance more than a year ago. The movie tells the story of Rebecca (Zoe Kazan) and ...

While Joss Whedon is currently directing the blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, he hasn't forgotten about indie fare. His previous film was the microbudget adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing, and he also wrote the upcoming drama In Your Eyes. Directed by Brin Hill, In Your Eyes is "about two seemingly polar opposites who are deeply connected in ways neither could have ever imagined." The opening scene has gone online, and if it's focused on the younger versions of the two "polar opposities", then this scene reveals their intriguing, supernatural connection. Even though there is a supernatural twist, I almost got a Snow Angels vibe when it comes to an idyllic school environment being disrupted by a distant tragedy. I'm definitely curious to check out more of this film. Hit the jump to check out the In Your Eyes opening scene. The film stars Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks), Michael Stahl-David »

Joss Whedon fans waiting for "Avengers: Age of Ultron", here's something to tide you over. Back at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, Indiewire spoke to Whedon about his independent production company, Bellwether, and its first completed feature, his adaptation of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing." Whedon mentioned that Bellwether started another feature before "Much Ado," and it's finally premiering at Tribeca Film Festival. "In Your Eyes," a science-fiction romance, stars Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David as two people who can feel what the other is feeling despite not knowing each other and living on opposite sides of the country. Written by Whedon and directed by Brin Hill, it sounds like an ambitious, unusual love story, and Entertainment Weekly has released the first three minutes of the film online. The film establishes its conceit quickly and succinctly, showing a connection between the characters that reaches all the way back to childhood. »

Steven Spielberg has added a new project to his upcoming slate, with Variety reporting that he’s attached himself to the religious drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, which is currently being written by Tony Kushner (Munich, Lincoln).
According to the report, The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara is based on a nonfiction book by David Kertzer and tells the “true-life story of an Italian Jew who became the center of an international controversy in 1858 when he was removed from his parents at the age of 7 by authorities of the Papal States and raised as a Catholic. He went on to become a priest in the Augustinian order.”
It’s said that Spielberg will produce the film, and may also direct, although his next directorial offering is thought to be between Robopocalypse and Montezuma, with Robopocalypse the front runner. Chris Hemsworth is attached to star in the adaptation of the sci-fi novel by Daniel H. Wilson, »

Marvel recently got back the rights to Daredevil. But instead of moving forward with a movie, the studio teamed with Netflix to create a new TV series. But which characters, outside of Daredevil, can Marvel use? "The Amazing Spider-Man" producer recently said that Kingpin was a potential character that the Spider-Man franchise can use. But according to Marvel head Kevin Feige, "we either have [Kingpin] or someone share." This situation is similar to agreement Marvel has with Fox for Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, which will appear both in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Feige also commented on the rights of Namor and Elektra, stating: "No, Namor I think is a little complicated, the way some of them are. Elektra I think we have. I think that was part of Daredevil, and that's clean and simple." The "Daredevil" series is set to premiere in 2015. »
Steven Spielberg has signed on to produce and possibly direct the religious drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, a project which reunites him with his Lincoln and Munich screenwriter Tony Kushner. The project will be a co-production between DreamWorks and The Weinstein Company.
The story is adapted from the David Kertzer book that tells the true story of a seven year old Italian-Jewish boy, who, in 1858, was controversially removed from his parents by the authority of the Papal States, who raised him as a Catholic. He went on to become a priest in the Augustinian order.
Steven Spielberg has not directed a movie since 2012's Lincoln, and the filmmaker is reportedly anxious to get back behind the camera. However, Tony Kushner is currently in the early stages of writing the script for The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, which will definitely not be his next project.
He is currently deciding between Robopocalypse, »
While director Joss Whedon continues production on his massive superhero sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, In Your Eyes, which he wrote the screenplay for, will debut this Sunday, April 20 at the Tribeca Film Festival. The first three minutes of this dramatic comedy have arrived, starring Zoe Kazan as Rebecca, the wife of a doctor on the East Coast and Michael Stahl-David as Dylan, an ex-con trying to start a new life in New Mexico. While they live wholly separate lives, they find themselves inexplicably connected to one another. Nikki Reed and Jennifer Grey co-star in director Brin Hill's new film, which doesn't have a distributor at this time.
In Your Eyes comes to theaters in 2014 and stars Jennifer Grey, Steve Howey, Nikki Reed, Zoe Kazan, Mark Feuerstein, Preston Bailey, Steve Harris, Michael Stahl-David. The film is directed by Brin Hill. »

Tolmach said that such a film would only be a "stunt".
"I think I'm probably a little bit of the militant here," Arad told IGN. "I think it will take a moment in which we've run out of ideas.

Elizabeth Olsen casts a dark, bewitching spell in American fashion magazine Flaunt. She wears black leather, black bra and black lace against a slash of bright red lipstick that hints of Goth and Bdsm style. Olsen, 25, is promoting her new movie “Godzilla,” a remake of the campy 1954 Japanese classic. She’s also filming the latest Marvel comic book movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” ...Read More

In keeping with the tradition of celebrating our nation’s birth by grilling up a lot of weiners, Magic Mike Xxl will grind and thrust its way into theaters on July 3, 2015, adding to the insanity of an already crowded summer release schedule. Magic Mike Xxl will be going pec to pec with Terminator: Genesis, set to be released on July 1. I have a feeling they aren’t targeting the same audience, though.
Magic Mike was a surprise hit for Warner Bros., bringing in well over $150 million on a $7 million budget. But it was a pretty self-contained story, and without director Steven Soderbergh behind the camera, I don’t know if they can elevate the cliched and cheesy aspects as well as the first film did. Also, didn’t he quit stripping at the end? Is it going to be Magic Mike Xxl: Return of the Thong? Dear Lord, I hope not. »

When a business model consistently generates billions of dollars, it’s not surprising when interested parties plan to keep that model in perpetual motion for as long as possible. For Marvel Studios, that is certainly true of their bid for world domination using their cohesive cinematic universe. As commented by Kevin Feige – President of Marvel Studios – in a recent conversation with Business Week, they have at their disposal “a universe of thousands of characters [they] control entirely.” That’s right – this thing could run for decades.
According to the report, senior figures at Disney met with Marvel to discuss the best way to continue milking this cash cow by using a multitude of character combinations to grow their audience with each project.
[Robert] Iger and Alan Horn, chairman of Walt Disney Studios, recently met with the Marvel team to talk about new heroes who will be introduced in Age of Ultron and »

"We have been discussing after 'Avengers' what that would be, what that would look like", said Feige.
"...all of the effort related to Hulk right know is going to 'Age of Ultron'. It’s exciting, because he hasn’t been in any other film, so you can expect to have a lot of 'Bruce Banner' and 'Hulk' in 'Age of Ultron'. Where do we go after that ?
"We’ll see. It will be a little while before we figure that out but, we do think there’s plenty of opportunities with the 'Ruffalo Banner'."

Welcome to Issue #41 of The Marvelous Da7e!
Real quick mission statement: this column is for discussion of superhero movie news and superhero movies. Titular allegiance aside, this sphere includes non-Marvel properties.
Come With Me To Days Of Future Past!
Did anyone else notice that the last trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past was scored by a remix of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” but at a faster tempo with modern instrumentation, so it instantly called to mind the last modernized-up-tempo “Kashmir.” It was called “Come With Me” and was a track for 1998′s Godzilla.
Check out the video for that, in case you don’t remember.
Ok, then here’s the Days of Future Past “final trailer”
Do You Hear It?!?! It’S The Same Tempo.
As the proud owner of XMenDaysOfFuturePast. »
