COMIC REEL: Boseman Talks Partnership With “Black Panther” Director; Olsen Comments On Scarlet Witch’s Suit

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

In a chat with Collider, the Russos spoke about the prospects of a Black Widow solo movie. “It’s a no-brainer, right?” said “Civil War” co-director Anthony Russo.

“I don’t think [it’ll take] much [to get a solo Black Widow movie],” added Joe Russo. “I think it’s just a function of where on the slate it goes. She’s a bad-ass.”

ARROW

And there are also pics from the upcoming episode as well.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

While speaking with Uproxx, “Infinity War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed that the films will at some point receive new names.

“The movies are two very different movies,” said Joe. Anthony said that the two films being labeled “Part 1” and “Part 1” is “misleading.” Joe added, “The intention is we will change it, we just haven’t come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it. And, yes, that is a scoop: we will retitle them.”

In an interview with JoBlo, screenwriters Christohper Markus and Stephen McFeely said that they understand the criticism lobbed at most of Marvel’s big screen villains.

“If you think about it, I get the criticism, but the early phases were all origin stories,” McFeely explained. “It tends to create a similar villain. When it is no longer an origin story, I think you might have a little bit more freedom to create different villains. I’m sensitive to the problem. I get it. But it wasn’t the Robert Redford story, it was ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’ It wasn’t the Red Skull’s journey, it was the journey of one guy going from ninety pound weakling to American hero and then going into the ice.”

“So in a 120-minute movie it is difficult, and Thanos will possibly change that, but you want time spent,” he continued. “Excuse me for going on a tangent but I love the Marvel Netflix shows because you have so much more time to spend with your villains. It’s literally minutes and hours spent. We have 120-minutes and ‘Jessica Jones’ had how ever many it had.”

As to their approach to Thanos, he added, “As you said, we tend to take the ingredients and make a different meal out of it. ‘Winter Soldier’ owes a great deal to the [Ed] Brubaker run but it’s not the Brubaker run. ‘Civil War’ owes a great deal to [Mark] Millar, but it’s not close to the ‘Civil War’ run. So we’ll do the same thing with Thanos and his gauntlet.”

Part 1 opens May 4, 2018; Part 2 opens May 3, 2019

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW

Images from the upcoming “Legends” episode “Destiny” have been released.

SUICIDE SQUAD

During an interview with SuperHeroHype, he discussed the significance of the film in the larger superhero film landscape, his approach to the role and more.

“Suicide Squad is the next step,” he explained. “Everything starts somewhere and is going to end somewhere. I think this is that next step in the evolution of superhero movies… [There are] characters from the other movies that have come in onto our project. It’s interesting because, as a filmmaker and as a writer, you have to make it make sense. You have to find some way to infuse characters that aren’t really part of the narrative, but still have it make sense and have it not just be this weird piece where you’re setting up the other movie. It’s fluid and it has to feel right.”
