Ah, Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2, AKA Black Widow. She kicked, she twirled, she wore a skin-tight jumpsuit! But is her character ready to go solo, or is it just the testosterone in the air?
It’s been a week since we gave you the teaser trailer for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers and we have been Jonesing for another Avengers news fix. Thankfully, Marvel has obliged and we can reveal that The Avengers has been given a start of shooting date and a release date.
It’s a prospect that will have comic book fans salivating everywhere: Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and geek god Joss Whedon is in final talks to direct Marvel’s The Avengers. This is a superhero film of such potential epicness it’s making us here at Best For Film feel very dizzy. In a good way.
Hurrah! It’s official! Chris Evans has signed on the dotted line, and is now going to be playing Captain America in the upcoming Marvel flicks.
Well done Chris, you fought off a lot of stiff competition, with other actors considered including Michael Cassidy, Patrick Flueger, Mike Vogel, John Krasinski, Chace Crawford and Ryan Phillippe. The only problem now is that we have seen Evans in a super-flick before, as Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four. Does it matter?
