Marvel Movies & TV General Discussion


Yeah, and I suspect the same might be true here. I certainly didn’t walk out of Infinity War wishing it had been longer.


Oh I’d gladly take 30 mins extra and any extra Thanos I can get… but unfortunately I think that rumour got already debunked and there’s only gonna be a few short extra scenes in the bonus features =(



All of them.


Which Skrulls are actually Avengers in disguise?


All of them.


Which clickbait rumours are actually news in disguise?


And how many are actually Robots In Disguise?


None of them.


Just the writers.

‘Black Widow’ Movie Finds Director in Cate Shortland

Marvel Studios’ Black Widow standalone movie has its director.

Cate Shortland, the Australian director perhaps best known for the Nazi drama Lore, has signed on to direct Black Widow, Marvel’s action-adventure project that will star Scarlett Johansson.

The move caps off a search that lasted over half a year as Marvel met with over 70 or 75 directors in order to find its ideal candidate. A female filmmaker was the priority even as the search stalled at one point and the studio looked at male directors.


Shortland, who hails from Australia and does not have agency representation, had a fan in Johansson, who pushed for the helmer. The actress admired Shortland’s handling of the female lead in Lore, a critically acclaimed 2012 drama that told of a young woman who leads her siblings through Germany as the Allied army rolls in. Her most recent film was Berlin Syndrome, a 2017 thriller that starred Teresa Palmer.

Jac Schaeffer wrote the most recent draft for Widow. She also wrote the upcoming female-centric remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Nasty Women.

Johansson’s Widow is reportedly set before the events of the first Avengers movie and sees the actress reprise the Russian spy-turned-super heroine. The movie will be Marvel’s second female-centric movie after Captain Marvel, which is due to open March 8, 2019.


I avoided Berlin Syndrome because of the subject matter but I’ve heard really good things about it.


Yeah, Berlin Syndrome is pretty good.
