Marvel’s standalone Black Widow movie has found it’s director! Cate Shortland (Lore) will direct the film which will star Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. The movie will most likely be a prequel that draws out Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow’s background before she becomes an Avenger. Shortland will become the first solo female Marvel director. No release date has been set for the film yet, although rumors say perhaps 2020.
The first photos from M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass have arrived! The photos show the trilogy’s trio of stars: Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and James McAvoy. It seems the three are in some sort of institution for psychiatric treatment, and access Sarah Paulson is the therapist. It will certainly be interesting to see how Shyamalan brings the group together for the finale. Glass is scheduled for release January 2019.
