Incredible Hulk Almost Derails the McU: Journey to Infinity War Part 2

Marvel's early days are somewhat strange. It's clear that the people behind-the-scenes knew that these movies could all be connected someday. And they knew that there was something bigger they were building toward. While it seems like they mostly figured that out by Iron Man 2, it's really The Incredible Hulk that winds up being the forgotten child and the biggest casualty of the early stages of this grand experiment. That said, for all of the vocalization from the fanbase wanting a Hulk solo movie, we have one in the McU already. It just has Edward Norton instead of Mark Ruffalo in it.

As far as revisiting all of these McU movies leading up to Avengers: Infinity War, I was incredibly curious about taking another look at The Incredible Hulk. I remember seeing this movie when it first came out and, though I haven't watched it in quite some time,

Scarlett Johansson to become highest paid actress in Hollywood with Black Widow movie

Many fans have been calling for it since she made her first appearance in Iron Man 2, and now it looks like Marvel Studios is finally ready to pull the trigger on a Black Widow movie, with the studio tapping Jac Schaeffer (Nasty Women) to pen a solo movie for Scarlett Johansson’s Avenger.

Now, according to The Daily Mail, we have a report which claims that Johansson has finalised a $25 million payday from Marvel for the movie, which would make her the highest paid actress in Hollywood. Furthermore, Marvel and Disney are apparently confident that the Black Widow movie could be an even bigger hit than Warner BrosWonder Woman movie, and will pay Johansson an extra $6 million should it manage to surpass $900 million at the worldwide box office (for comparison, Wonder Woman grossed $821 million).

The report goes on to claim that Marvel is eyeing a 2020 release date for Black Widow,

Infinity War’s Tom Hiddleston Charts The Rise And Rise Of Loki

Say what you will about Marvel’s on-screen villains, but there’s something so great – so deliciously evil – about Loki that Tom Hiddleston’s antagonist continues to be a fixture of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even to this day. And that’s despite the fact that he was irrefutably knocked off his perch in The Avengers.

Still, Loki persevered, and even seeded the sows of corruption in Asgard – he did impersonate Odin, after all – while also leaving the door open for Hela, Thor’s long-lost sister, to bring the gilded city to its knees in Thor: Ragnarok. Last we checked in on the God of Mischief, he was plotting course for Earth, and will likely come into contact with Thanos pretty early on in Avengers: Infinity War.

But when it comes to Loki’s continued popularity, in particular, Tom Hiddleston told HeyUGuys that he never imagined his character would still

"Black Widow" Movie Updates

Marvel Studios is moving forward with their developing "Black Widow" solo feature, based on the Marvel Comics character, with Jac Schaeffer writing the screenplay and actress Scarlett Johansson reprising her role as female spy 'Natasha Romanoff':

"I’ve spoken to Kevin (Feige) about it," Johansson said about a solo film. "I mean, of course, of course we’ve had that conversation before, and I think Kevin would also like to see a standalone film."

Johansson's newest 'Black Widow' appearance will be in the upcoming feature "Avengers: Infinity War", directed by Anthony and Joseph Russo.

In 2009, Johansson signed on to play 'Natasha Romanoff'/'Black Widow' in multiple films, beginning with 2010's "Iron Man 2." In that introductory role, she is an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark'.

Iron Man Ignites the McU: Journey to Infinity War Part 1

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around for just shy of 10 years at this point and Infinity War is set to serve as the epic culmination of an entire decade of interconnected filmmaking. This is something that nobody could have fathomed before the McU took shape and, as we approach the release of Infinity War, we're having a look back at the movies that got us to where we are today. And we're starting where it all began, with the relatively modest but truly perfect Iron Man.

This is not necessarily to say that Iron Man is a flawless movie. Few big-budget blockbusters, if any, are. But Iron Man serves as the perfect beginning to the McU and is easily the best origin story ever put to screen for a comic book character. These are not new revelations being made, but rewatching the movie today, it's amazing how incredible it

A Black Widow Movie Doesn’t Mean Natasha Survives Infinity War

As the sole female member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Avengers for three years, and a character with an undeniable screen presence, many fans understandably have long clamored for a Black Widow solo film. But since Scarlett Johannson’s debut as Natasha Romanoff nearly eight years ago, in Iron Man 2, she’s been relegated to the role of a supporting player. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has been cagey about the possibility of a Black Widow film for some years now, but on Wednesday we learned it now actually has a writer.

A 'Black Widow' Movie Is Overdue

The news that Marvel Studios has hired Jac Schaeffer to write a screenplay for a potential Black Widow solo project is something that should, in theory, be exciting to those who have waited almost a decade for a Black Widow movie. (Scarlett Johansson first played the character onscreen in 2010’s Iron Man 2.) In reality, however, it’s merely a reminder that the pic is long overdue — and raises questions about what it could be if and when it happens.

It’s easy to see why some fans of the character feel cynical about the idea of...

Marvel Finally Moves Ahead on a Black Widow Movie

Ever since her coming out in The Avengers, Marvel fans have been clamoring for a Black Widow solo movie. Despite being the McU’s first female superhero, debuting over a half-decade before the Dceu’s Wonder Woman, she’s been relegated to a bit player inside of her larger franchise. She was an undercover Shield agent in Iron Man 2, a sidekick in The Winter Soldier, a love interest in Age of Ultron, and a turncoat in Civil War. Although she’s a rich and compelling character portrayed by an unimpeachable actress, Marvel has seemingly been uninterested in her as a solo property. All

Black Widow is finally getting her own movie — and a woman-written movie at that. TheWrap reports that Jac Schaeffer, the screenwriter behind the upcoming “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” remake, has been tapped to write the solo film for Marvel Studios.

Played by Scarlett Johansson, Black Widow aka Natasha Romanoff has been a mainstay of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since her 2010 debut in “Iron Man 2.” She’ll next appear in “Avengers: Infinity War,” out May 4, and another as-yet untitled “Avengers” flick, which is expected to bow in May 2019.

No official release date has been set for “Black Widow” yet. However, Marvel prez Kevin Feige has said that the studio is “committing” to giving Black Widow her own film and possibly her own franchise. “She’s an amazing character,” he told Deadline in 2016. “We think Scarlett Johansson’s portrayal of her is amazing.

Although the Scarlet Johannson lead, stand-alone superhero spin-off has yet to be greenlit, it still remains in the very early development stages but with the hiring of the scribe, it shows Marvel and Kevin Feige are keen to get the ball rolling on the project.

Johannson met with Marvel executives to discuss in what direction the character should take and exactly what they would be looking for in a writer. Feige was then tasked to vet a number of writers before finally snapping up the writer.

Marvel’s Standalone ‘Black Widow’ Movie Gains Momentum With Jac Schaeffer Writing

Marvel is finally pushing ahead with the highly anticipated “Black Widow” standalone movie starring Scarlett Johansson, with Jac Schaeffer penning the script.

Sources say this is still very early development, as the film has no greenlight, but naming a writer is the closest the studio has come to moving forward on a standalone pic. Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several candidates before tapping Schaeffer, and Marvel execs met with Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a “Black Widow” writer.

Schaeffer is an up and coming scribe who broke out with her Black List script “The Shower,” a comedy about an alien invasion during a baby shower which caught the eye of Anne Hathaway, who quickly attached herself to star in the pic.

Hathaway was so impressed with her work that she soon tapped Schaeffer to write “Nasty Women,” a new female-centric take on “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” that also stars Hathaway.
