Scarlett Johansson Didn’t Know About The Avengers: Endgame Trailer Or Title

As much as the stars of Avengers: Endgame love to tease and troll their fans with hints of what’s to come, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the cast is often pretty in the dark themselves about the content and promotion of the Avengers: Infinity War sequel.

At a recent Black Panther press event, for example, Scarlett Johansson admitted to being caught off guard by last Friday’s Endgame trailer drop and title reveal, with Erik Davis from Fandango recalling his exchange with the actress in the following tweet:

“At an event for #BlackPanther hosted by Scarlett Johansson. I told Scarlett that the #AvengersEndgame trailer was the most watched ever in its first 24 hours, and she was floored. She had no idea it was dropping, says even she didn’t know the title of the film”

Indeed, Johansson isn’t the first Endgame cast member to admit that she

Avengers directors would like to tackle Star Wars

Given the enormous box office they’ve generated for Marvel with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War (plus another billion or two coming in next year with Avengers: Endgame), directors Anthony and Joe Russo will have their pick of the projects when they finish up with Avengers 4 and turn their attention outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As yet, there’s been no indication as to what their next movie may be, but during a recent Q&A with Collider, the filmmakers have expressed their interest in exploring another Disney mega-franchise in the Star Wars saga:

“We grew up on Star Wars like everyone else did. I went to the theater when I was 11 years old to see Empire Strikes Back and sat in the theater from 11:30 in the morning until 10:00 at night and watched it back to back to back.

Avengers: Infinity War’s snap is officially named The Decimation

Yesterday, Marvel Studios unleashed the trailer for Avengers: Endgame, giving us our first glimpse of the Marvel Cinematic Universe following the devastating conclusion to Avengers: Infinity War where Thanos snapped his fingers and wiped out half of all life in the universe.

Said event has been referred to by fans as ‘The Snap’ or ‘The Snappening’, but now thanks to the new book Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War: The Cosmic Quest Volume Two: Aftermath, we have its official name – The Decimation.

Marvel has previously used the name ‘Decimation’ before as the title of a 2005 comic book event which explored the ramifications of ‘M-Day’, where Scarlet Witch used her powers in an attempt to rid the world of the mutant gene, depowering the vast majority of the mutant population.

Interestingly, the book also reveals that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have chosen to keep the truth about The Decimation quiet from the surviving members of the population,

Iron Man contemplates death in the brooding new trailer for Avengers: Endgame, the sequel to 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War and the fourth installment of the Marvel superhero series.

The clip opens with a dejected Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) recording a farewell message to Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) while floating in a spaceship. “Part of the journey is the end,” he reflects. “Just for the record, being adrift in space with zero promise of rescue is more fun than it sounds.

The Russos on Adam Warlock’s absence in Avengers: Infinity War

Anthony and Joe Russo, the directors of Avengers: Infinity War, have explained why Adam Warlock didn’t show up in the film.

In the Infinity Gauntlet story in the comics, Adam Warlock plays a huge role in defeating Thanos, however, the character didn’t turn up at all in Avengers: Infinity War, even though he has been speculated to appear on screen for years.

Well, now Joe and Anthony Russo, co-directors of the film, have explained why. Speaking to Collider, Joe said Adam’s absence was because they didn’t want people to come into the film knowing what would happen:

“We had a lot of pre-established characters and sometimes characters from the books, again, being a comic book fan, I don’t want to see a literal interpretation of a comic book I’ve read a hundred times because I don’t wanna go to a theater and know

Avengers: Infinity War directors say Disney encouraged the film’s dark ending

Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Avengers: Infinity War, have revealed that the film’s dark ending was actually encouraged by Disney.

One doesn’t associate Disney with dark and desperate subject material so when audiences saw the morose ending for Avengers: Infinity War, it seemed likely that Disney may have pushed back on it.

This wasn’t the case at all, however, according to directors Joe and Anthony Russo. Speaking at Business Insider Ignition (via Deadline), Joe said, “they were incredibly encouraging of the choices we made.”

Anthony also confirmed that Disney was more than happy with the planned ending: “The only way to drive a conversation is to surprise people. If you’re constantly adhering to convention, you’re not going to surprise people. [Plot twists properly done create] pop culture talking points for an audience, but they’re also just good narrative.”

Rumour: Apparently we’re getting Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Far From Home trailers this week

If reports are to be believed, yesterday’s Captain Marvel trailer isn’t the only treat that Marvel Studios has in store for fans this week.

It’s already been claimed that the first trailer for Avengers 4 would be with us today – just like it was rumoured it would be here last week, and the week before – so this certainly feels like a case of throwing darts into the dartboard, but the latest Twitter speculation (guesswork?) is now saying it will be with us on Friday morning…

First trailer for Avengers 4 will drop this Friday morning. And yes this is final.

— Daniel R (@DanielRPK) December 4, 2018

And that’s not all, as Collider is reporting that Marvel and Sony will unveil the first trailer for the Phase Four-launching Spider-Man: Far From Home at Comic-Con Experience in Sao Paulo, Brazil this Saturday, December 8th, and it will make its way online shortly after.

Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster survived The Snap in Avengers: Infinity War

Last week, the official blurb for the new novel Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War: The Cosmic Quest, Vol. 2: Aftermath revealed that Stellan Skarsgard’s Erik Selvig and Kat Dennings’ Darcy both survived The Snappening at the end of this year’s superhero blockbuster, and now we have confirmation that Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) was also spared by Thanos.

As revealed by Nerdist, the book – which takes place post-Snap – sees Dr. Selvig and Darcy reuniting with Jane to form the ‘Science Avengers’ as they set about investigating the cause of the devastation which has left humanity decimated.

Having portrayed the character of Jane in 2011’s Thor and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, Portman stated back in 2016 that she believed she was “done” with the McU, although she did tease the possibility of a return for “an Avengers 7 or whatever”. Perhaps that “or whatever” is Avengers 4?

Bruce Dern Back At Work On Showtime’s ‘Black Monday’ After Jogging Injury

  • Deadline
Bruce Dern Back At Work On Showtime’s ‘Black Monday’ After Jogging Injury
Bruce Dern is back at work on Showtime’s new series Black Monday after fracturing a hip during a jog at the Silver Lake Reservoir in Los Angeles in October.

A tweet from Dern’s account went out today noting, “Can’t keep a good man down. Back at work on #Black Monday.”

The 82-year-old Dern, who recently finished filming on Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood in the role of rancher George Spahn, was hospitalized briefly in October following the jogging accident.

In addition to Tarantino’s Charles Manson-era Once Upon a Time, Dern co-stars in Focus Features’ The Mustang, set for a premiere at Sundance.

Black Monday is a Showtime half-hour Wall Street comedy series starring Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall that premieres in 2019. Guest starring are Dern, Melissa Rauch, Horatio Sanz, Julie Hagerty, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Tim Russ and Jason Michael Snow.

Captain Marvel, Avengers 4 and The Avengers Project trailers reportedly incoming this week

If reports are to be believed, this week is shaping up to be a big one for Marvel fans, with Marvel Studios said to be releasing a new trailer for Captain Marvel during Monday Night Football, followed by the very first Avengers 4 trailer on Wednesday during Good Morning America.

As if that’s not enough excitement for one week, rumours are also circulating that Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 directors Joe and Anthony Russo are set to unveil a first look at the hotly-anticipated video game The Avengers Project at some point during The Game Awards, which takes place on Thursday.

Exciting times! Let’s hope that, unlike the many other Avengers 4 trailer rumours lately, this one actually pans out!

Update: It looks like this one may well be on the money, as the Captain Marvel trailer is now officially confirmed for tonight, and we’ve just had a new poster for the film.

The Russo Brothers would like to direct Marvel’s Secret Wars

Having directed the Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, directors Anthony and Joe Russo were entrusted by Marvel to bring the studio’s two-part Avengers epic to the big screen with Avengers: Infinity War and next year’s hugely anticipated sequel.

By the time Avengers 4 releases, the Russos will have spent almost seven years straight in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and so it’s understandable that they’d be looking to branch out for the next movie – and with the combined box office we can expect from their four Marvel movies, they’ll surely have their pick of projects.

Nevertheless, speaking at an Avengers: Infinity War Q&A hosted by Collider, the brothers have revealed that they would be tempted back to Marvel for one project in particular – Secret Wars.

Disney Doesn’t Want Marvel-Netflix Shows On Their Streaming Service

With the cancellation of Daredevil, it seems that the once close relationship between Netflix and Disney is coming to an end. For those paying attention to the industry, this won’t come as a huge surprise: Disney’s next big venture is Disney+, an extremely high profile streaming video service that will be going to head to head with Netflix in a race for subscribers. The service will feature shows like The Mandalorian, a large amount of Disney’s animated classics and several TV series boasting characters from the big screen McU. With that in mind, it simply doesn’t make business sense for the Mouse House to continue a relationship with Netflix as it would be competing against its own IP.

But what of the existing shows already produced on Netflix? After all, Disney still owns the rights for the characters, so what’s stopping them from simply airing

Avengers 4 director says Chris Evans “not done yet” as Captain America

Back in October, Chris Evans shared a message on social media to mark the end of filming on Avengers 4, stating that he’d been honoured to take on the role of Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and expressing his gratitude to the fans, along with the various cast and crew he’d worked with over the years.

While this certainly sounded like a farewell to the role, Evans subsequently clarified that his message was in reference to the end of production on the movie, and that he was “neither confirming or denying” any of the speculation that Steve Rogers could be killed off in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War follow-up.

Now, during an interview with USA Today, Infinity War and Avengers 4 co-director Joe Russo has suggested that Evans may well still have a role in the McU moving into Phase Four.

“I think it was more emotional for

Hugo Weaving was offered Red Skull return in Avengers: Infinity War

The Red Skull made a surprise return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe this year with the Captain America: The First Avenger villain popping up in Avengers: Infinity War as the Stonekeeper, guardian of the Soul Stone on Vormir.

The character was originally played by Hugo Weaving in The First Avenger, but the role was recast for Infinity War, with The Walking Dead’s Ross Marquand portraying the former Hydra leader.

However, during an Infinity War screening and Q&A held by Collider last night, directors Anthony and Joe Russo revealed that Weaving was offered the chance to return – an opportunity he presumably rejected.

Hugo Weaving was asked to return to reprise Red Skull, that’s all the Russo Brothers would say. The Soul stone was the last stone in writing for them to come up with.
