Black Widow Adds Two More Cast Members

The solo film for Black Widow keeps pushing forward, and getting larger and larger, as The Hollywood Reporter and Variety are reporting that David Harbour (Hellboy, Stranger Things) and Rachel Weisz (The Mummy), respectively, have both signed on for key roles in the film. Both roles are still kept under lock and key, but this is shaping up to be quite the star-studded cast for the former KGB agent turned S.H.I.E.L.D. operative.

Those two will join Scarlett Johannson and Florence Pugh. Cate Shortland is directing the Black Widow film from a script by Jac Schaeffer. Currently, Black Widow has no release date, but with a massive slate announcement expected after Avengers: Endgame, expect to learn more, soon.

Special Look at Avengers: Endgame; Tickets On Sale Now

Marvel Studios has shared a new special look at Avengers: Endgame, featuring loads of new footage, and the return of Thanos! Additionally, tickets for the epic conclusion to the Infinity Saga are now on sale, so go grab them, because they’re moving quick.

The new trailer shows the remaining Avengers venturing into space to confront Thanos directly after Tony and Nebula’s return to Earth. Given that we know the marketing only shows the beginning of the film, we should expect plenty more surprises in store for the team.

Angelina Jolie Set for Marvel’s The Eternals

It would appear that Marvel’s adaptation of The Eternals is moving forward as The Hollywood Reporter has word that Angelina Jolie has entered final talks to star in the female as the female lead. Details on her role are being kept under wraps, but it’s rumored she will play Sersi, an Eternal that loved life among the humans, and made a life for herself in New York City. In the comics, she was a member of the Avengers for several years.

The Eternals will follow the love story between Ikaris and Sersi, spanning centuries. The Eternals were created by the Celestials, who have been lightly introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, alongside Thanos, another Eternal who has yet to be referred by that title as of yet. Perhaps that will change in Avengers: Endgame?

Big Changes Happening at Fox with Disney Merger

Despite promises to the contrary, massive changes to Fox Studios after the Disney merger are already happening. Fox 2000, the studio behind films like The Devil Wear Prada, has been shuttered, putting approximately 5,000 people out of work. Additionally, it’s being reported that Fox, as a studio, will only put out four theatrical films a year, and four streaming films a year, with a more precise focus on what does and doesn’t get made.

Disney CEO Alan Horn is now responsible for green-lighting films, with Ryan Reynolds’ Free Guy said to be a tentpole film for the studio, and Ridley Scott now attached to a Merlin film. Additionally, projects that were previously shut down, such as Noah Hawley’s Alien TV series are being revived, after Fox film boss Stacey Snider, who was voraciously against film franchises being brought to life on the silver screen, was let go.

It’s only been two days, and the entire slate of films at Fox Studios has been completely shaken up. Expect to hear more as time goes on, and Disney’s presence becomes more and more of a focus.

Florence Pugh to Star in Black Widow

The solo Black Widow film continues to move forward, as The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Florence Pugh (Fighting With My Family) is in final talks to star opposite Scarlett Johannson in the movie. Pugh will play a spy “on the same level” as Natasha Romanoff.

Black Widow is said to be a prequel, and will give us insight into the Black Widow’s dark past as a KGB assassin before being scooped up by Nick Fury for S.H.I.E.L.D. Perhaps we’ll see more of Samuel L. Jackson de-aged in this film? I suppose we’ll see as more details develop in the film.
