Super Bowl 2020 Movie Trailers: Here’s What To Expect

Hut, hut…action! Here we are, but a scant few days away from the United States’ most watched television event of the year: the Super Bowl. While San Francisco and Kansas City fans are especially excited, everyone else can agree that the ads are also MVPs on Super Bowl Sunday. You know there’s going to be a weird Doritos commercial, possibly a strange, kinda sexist GoDaddy ad, and a bunch of exciting 30-second teasers for movies. And now, we have a pretty good idea of which trailers are going to show up, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter.

For $5.2 million a pop, Universal, Paramount and Disney seem to be the only three studios stepping up to the plate with a sack of money this year. Per tradition, we’re going to be seeing a second glimpse at Fast & Furious 9, following the full-length trailer set to debut this Friday during a Ludacris concert,

New Fast & Furious 9 Teaser Trailer Is All About Family

Trailers for upcoming blockbusters have been dropping at an alarming rate over the last month or so. You might even say they’ve been hitting the web at a fast and furious pace (sorry). Be it Black Widow, No Time To Die, Wonder Woman 1984 or Ghostbusters: Afterlife, among several others, hype for 2020’s biggest and most exciting films is officially picking up.

Another preview that we know we’re getting though is one for Fast & Furious 9. We’re quickly approaching its May release yet we still haven’t seen anything from it. Not even a post-credit scene to tease what was to come in last year’s Hobbs & Shaw. The anticipation will soon be over though, as the first full trailer for the pic lands on January 31st and ahead of its debut, Universal has now dropped a quick teaser that reveals the first bit of footage from the film,

Black Widow Leak Says Red Guardian’s The Worst Part Of The Movie

A lot of leaked info from Black Widow, Marvel’s first movie of Phase 4, arrived online recently, apparently revealing much about what we can expect from Scarlett Johansson’s first solo venture in the McU. Including the nature of its big twist and the contents of its two post-credits scenes. The whistleblower appears to be a fan who saw an early screening of the film, which means they were also able to give their own opinions on its quality.

Bear in mind, then, this is just their thoughts. Not to mention it was posted on 4Chan, so take it with a pinch of salt. Still, one of their comments is pretty disheartening as according to them, Red Guardian is the worst element of the movie. Stranger Things star David Harbour is playing Alexei Shostakov in Black Widow, a former Russian superhero who’s part of Natasha Romanoff’s old family.

Iron Man’s Burger Scene Had A Hidden Meaning For Robert Downey Jr.

In last year’s Avengers: Endgame, during the funeral of Tony Stark, there’s a moment where Happy Hogan asks the young Morgan if she’s hungry. Tony’s daughter then replies that she wants cheeseburgers, prompting Happy to reminisce about her dad’s similar taste in fast food.

In its own way, this exchange helps bring Robert Downey Jr.’s eleven-year run in the McU full circle, referencing a moment in 2008’s Iron Man that held some personal significance for the Hollywood A-lister.

After escaping captivity in his McU debut, Tony requests two things upon returning to the Us: a press conference and an “American cheeseburger.” Sure enough, we then see Tony Stark stepping out of his limo as he finishes off a meal from Burger King.

Yes, it’s an obvious case of product placement, but the moment was also intended as an acknowledgment of the role played

New Eternals Promo Art Teases Possible Captain Marvel Connection

We’re still more than nine months out from the release of The Eternals, but thanks to various set photos and leaks that have made their way online in recent weeks, we’re beginning to get a pretty good idea of the designs for some of the key players in Chloé Zhao’s upcoming film.

Over the weekend, for instance, a pair of low-quality stills that seem to offer an early glimpse at the movie’s promotional material have started making the rounds. Firstly, we have an image of Richard Madden’s Ikaris, seen dressed in what looks to be a fairly comic-accurate shiny blue suit, complete with three glowing holes across the chest.

One potentially significant detail in this image is Ikaris’ glowing hand, which seems reminiscent of the effect used on Captain Marvel whenever she goes binary. Only time will tell if Madden’s Eternal has some kind

New Black Widow Merch May Connect Taskmaster To Iron Man

In the wake of this month’s Black Widow trailer release, several of Marvel’s biggest licensees have now unveiled the various merchandise they have lined up for the year’s first McU movie.

Among the tie-in toys that are soon headed for shelves is a Hasbro playset featuring the mask and shield of the film’s mysterious villain, Taskmaster, and if you look closely enough, some fans have speculated that you can spot signs of a connection to one Tony Stark.

Specifically, the mask’s visor seems to include a built-in Hud, much like the one used in Iron Man’s helmet. And while this alone is hardly enough to confirm a direct link to the McU’s first superhero, this certainly isn’t the first hint we’ve got that Taskmaster may be drawing inspiration from the stars of Marvel’s Infinity Saga.

Chadwick Boseman Might Be Done With Black Panther Soon

Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther has to be one of the most instantly iconic of the second generation of McU stars. He made a big impression in his debut, Captain America: Civil War, and then smashed it in 2018’s solo film. Following his supporting roles in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, Boseman will star in upcoming sequel Black Panther 2 in 2022. But, after that, his days in the franchise may be numbered.

Sources close to Wgtc – the same ones who said Taskmaster would be the villain in Black Widow and that Marvel is eyeing Daniel Radcliffe for Moon Knight – tell us that that Boseman’s future in the McU is now in question. As we’ve previously reported, and is reiterated by our latest intel, Marvel’s eventual plan is to make Letitia Wright’s Shuri the next Black Panther, something that fans have been guessing would happen ever since she was introduced.

Bewildering Saw 9 Title Allegedly Leaks, But Is It for Real?

Bewildering Saw 9 Title Allegedly Leaks, But Is It for Real?
Spiral: From the Book of Saw is reportedly the official title of Saw Reboot. But this may be fake, as it hasn't been confirmed by Lionsgate and some initial reports have since been removed from the Internet. The reboot hits theaters later this year and there has been a ton of speculation as to what the official title was going to be. The working title for the horror movie was Organ Donor and is still what is listed on the Wikipedia page for the reboot. However, the Canadian distributor for the project may have let the cat out of the bag a little early with Spiral: From the Book of Saw being used on their site.

Spiral: From the Book of Saw sort of fits into the Saw 9 mythos, since it seems mysterious and a bit ambiguous, while still tied to the franchise as a whole. With the official title seemingly leaking now,

Black Widow Teaser Kicks Off 100 Day Countdown to Release

  • MovieWeb
Marvel Studios is celebrating 100 days until Black Widow hits theaters with a new teaser. The standalone Natasha Romanoff movie starring Scarlett Johansson lands on May 1st. Marvel studios has been quietly rolling out more footage from the highly anticipated upcoming movie, giving fans more to speculate about in the process. With that being said, the latest teaser is all made up from previously released footage from the first trailer and another teaser that was released a few weeks ago.

Natasha Romanoff will finally get her story told on the big screen with Black Widow. Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have been waiting for nearly a decade for it to happen, and the same thing can be said for Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye. Thankfully, the Hawkeye series is on the way and it will land on Disney+ in 2021. As for Romanoff's movie, it takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War and before Infinity War.

Watch: New Black Widow Promo Kicks Off The 100 Day Countdown

Get ready, True Believers, because Black Widow is officially hitting cinemas in exactly 100 days! We haven’t had an McU movie since last July, and we’ve still got another few months to go yet, but this abnormally-long gap between Marvel films is shrinking, as the counter will be on double digits from tomorrow. And to celebrate, the studio has dropped this short new promo, promising that Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff is on her way.

The teaser features a small bunch of clips, all of which have been plucked from previous trailers. There’s Nat and Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova escaping from pursuers on a motorcycle, David Harbour’s Red Guardian suiting up again and the heroine jumping out of a plane, but with an armed Taskmaster on her tail.

Black Widow Reaction Says It’s Not A Feminist Film Like Captain Marvel

While Marvel Studios’ retrospective super-spy thriller Black Widow is still several months from release, early reactions are already surfacing across the Internet regarding the contents and surprises of the forthcoming film. And though some fans may have entertained concerns that Natasha Romanoff’s posthumous big screen return might feature the kind of feminism that earned Captain Marvel a Rotten Tomatoes review-bombing, a leak that comes to us by way of 4Chan suggests that won’t be the case, with the user saying that there are no “outright ultra-feminist scenes.”

Allegedly, the most that viewers will have to fear from the film is a scene with “some implied themes with all the Black Widows turning on” one of their own during the movie’s culmination. This may come as a relief to fans who recall screenwriter Jac Schaeffer’s interview in which she said: “I’m not interested in adhering to

Why Hugo Weaving Didn't Return as Red Skull in Infinity War or Avengers: Endgame

Why Hugo Weaving Didn't Return as Red Skull in Infinity War or Avengers: Endgame
Ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was given something of a finale last year with the epic Avengers: Endgame, a movie that served as both a celebration and wrap up for several of the franchise's staple characters. One of the biggest surprises in the movie was the return of Captain America's arch-enemy, the Red Skull, but something seemed different about him.

We would later learn that this was due to the Skull's original actor, Hugo Weaving, not returning to the role, something which Weaving blames on Marvel.

"Oh, yeah. I loved playing that character Red Skull - it was a lot of fun. We were all obliged to sign up for three pictures: I was thinking [Red Skull] probably wouldn't come back in Captain America but he may well come back as a villain in The Avengers. By then, they'd pushed back on the contracts that we agreed on and so

Thunderbolts TV Show Might Bring Back A Forgotten McU Villain

It’s not quite official yet, but all the signs are pointing to the Thunderbolts coming to the McU. There’s been a ton of evidence to suggest that the team of supervillains press-ganged into doing good by General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross will be set-up in both Black Widow and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and it’s then believed the gang will star in their own Disney Plus series.

This lines up with We Got This Covered’s own intel as well, with our sources – who told us that Taskmaster would be the villain in Black Widow back in March – also giving us one extra name that isn’t being reported yet as linked to the project but who will almost certainly show up. So far, several characters are being brought up in regards to news of the Thunderbolts, including Daniel Bruhl’s Zemo, Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), U.

Scarlett Johansson movies: 12 greatest films ranked worst to best
After a distinguished film career that began at age 10, Scarlett Johansson is finally an Academy Award nominee, earning a Best Actress nomination for her performance in “Marriage Story,” as well as being nominated as Best Supporting Actress for “Jojo Rabbit.” (Johansson is only the 12th actor in Oscar history to manage that feat.) But don’t feel too sorry for her: since 2018, she has reigned as the world’s highest-paid actress, and, with her films having grossed $14.3 billion worldwide, she is the third highest-grossing box-office star of all time.

Her tally of awards and nominations also make an argument for her being one of the best actresses of her generation. Johansson has been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards, three SAG Awards and has won a BAFTA Award from four nominations. (And she is nominated for all three of those awards this year.

First Black Widow Reaction Calls It A Pleasant Surprise

The first reaction to Black Widow has allegedly landed online. One fan claims to have attended an early test screening of the movie and has now shared a detailed plot breakdown of Scarlett Johansson’s first solo outing in the McU on 4Chan. Given the unreliable nature of leaks on that site, feel free to take all this with a pinch of salt, but it’s important to note that much of the user’s info lines up with what else is being said in other reports. Given that, we may wish to pay it some attention.

So, what does this person make of the film? Well, according to their post, they describe Black Widow as a “pleasant surprise” as it seems they went in with lowered expectations but their reaction was more positive than they anticipated. They state that the movie owes a lot to the Mission: Impossible template as well,

HBO’s ‘Beartown’ Among 50 Nordic Sneak Peeks at Göteborg’s TV Drama Vision

  • Variety
For the first time ever, a record number of 13 talent scouts -including U.S. reps from Wiip, CAA, Gersh- will set foot at Göteborg’s sold-out Nordic TV Drama Vision (Jan.29-30), where around 50 series in progress and in development will play to 420 industry delegates.

“This is the first time ever we have such a large presence of talent agents in Göteborg, but mirrors the worldwide trend of people trying to uncover and snap up the next big talent and stories, of which the Nordics abound,” said head of industry Cia Edström.

Heading the works in progress is HBO’s Swedish original “Beartown,” to be discussed by HBO Nordic’s commissioning editor & VP Original Programming, Hanne Palmquist, director Peter Grönlund, and Filmlance International’s producers Bonnie Skoog Feeney and Mattias Arehn. The adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s best-selling novel will bow on HBO later this year.

Black Widow Leak May’ve Revealed The Movie’s Big Twist

Are you impatiently waiting for Black Widow to arrive so that you can find out what happens in Scarlett Johansson’s first solo outing in the McU? Then you might want to check out the glut of leaked plot details that just dropped over on 4Chan. Sure, this is 4Chan we’re talking about and it may eventually be proven wrong, but much of the intel being shared does have a ring of truth to it. Given that, proceed with caution if you’re spoiler-phobic, as we’re about to dive into what’s apparently the film’s big twist.

As previously reported, the leak claims that Taskmaster will be unveiled as O-t Fagbenle’s character Mason, Natasha Romanoff’s ex. But this isn’t even the biggest revelation of the movie, as Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) will later be revealed as a traitor. In an intriguing development, it’s
