  1. Rumor: Some Familiar Geeky Faces are Testing for Roles in X-Men: Apocalypse

    '80s Sansa is coming.

    We see what you're doing, X-Men: Apocalypse. Announcing that you're an '80s period piece and then teasing us with the possibility of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey? You might know how to get The Mary Sue editors reinvested in a franchise, but don't think we won't notice if you eventually punk out.

  2. Meet The Fantastic Five Actors in the Running for Sue Storm and Reed Richards

    Fact From the Vapor of Nuance

    The Fantastic Four reboot stands to be the first major superhero franchise in a long time to star an actor of color in a lead role from the very start, and according to Variety, it's out of script stages and will soon begin casting Reed Richards and Sue Storm, perhaps confirming the multiracial diversity of the Storm family.

  3. Star Wars: Episode VII Has a Release Date, Doesn’t Have Saoirse Ronan, Will Have 3D

    May The Force Be With You

    Plus J.J. Abrams had some things to say about why original writer Michael Arndt was replaced by himself and Lawrence Kasdan. What kind of morning is this? We've heard official word on two separate Episode VII rumors, promoting one to the realm of fact and relegating the other to Not Gonna Happenville. At this rate I'm half expecting something really good to come out by the end of the day, like Lucasfilm saying "Screw it, we're making all the rest of the movies about Mara Jade."

  8. Saoirse Ronan Goes Post-Apocalyptic In the Trailer For How I Live Now [VIDEO]

    The World May Never Know

    I've been getting a wee bit tired of the YA dystopia trend as of late. But still, the trailer for How I Live Now, based on Meg Rosoff's award-winning young adult novel, looks pretty cool. And I like all the people involved. You have my curiosity, movie. Now you just need to get my attention.

  9. Saoirse Ronan Has Not Been Approached to Play Scarlet Witch

    Awwwwww

    It's not often that we find out about a new character addition to a superhero franchise from an offhand remark on a red carpet two years before the movie's scheduled release date and in advance of the script being finished. In fact, it's practically unheard of, and probably has more to do with the murky cloud of copyrights and licensing in which Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver reside where movie versions of them are concerned than anything else. It was reported early on that Whedon and company might be looking for someone like Irish actress Saoirse Ronan, and the obvious subsequent question was: why not Saoirse Ronan?

  10. Old Professions and New Tricks Anchor an Expansive Byzantium

    Review

    If the summer’s glut of sequels and reboots has got you down, then interest, if not a feel-good time, may be found in the art house. Byzantium, a return to the vampire genre well-trod by director Neil Jordan in High Spirits and his more famous Interview with a Vampire, is a curious piece, at times slow and ponderous, bookended by violent, swift action. It brings Jordan back to a theme he explored in Vampire; the consequences, and perpetual loneliness, of the cursed immortal. The difference here is that the subjects of Jordan’s very modern supernatural tale are not statuesque vampires in sharp suits and gleaming jewels, but a mother-daughter pair, sleeping rough and on the run. Having defied a patriarchal Brotherhood whose rules state that women cannot create succients (the film’s preferred term for its vampiric denizens), Clara Webb (Gemma Arterton) and her daughter Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) are forever one step ahead of their pursuers, though Eleanor appears largely in the dark about their impending danger, or, at least, the reason for their being on the move. This reason, the reason for Eleanor’s creation, and the sorry tale of her mother’s history, is relayed in pieces throughout the film, as a frustrated Eleanor whispers to the wind and the sea, and finally, a young companion, the story she must never tell. Mild spoilers, and discussion of trope-typical violence awaits readers under this non-sanguine cut.

  11. Interview: Violet & Daisy’s Saoirse Ronan

    The Mary Sue Exclusive

    We spoke with Saoirse Ronan in advance of her latest film release, Violet & Daisy, co-starring Alexis Bledel and James Gandolfini. We already showed you what her thoughts were on being Joss Whedon's "prototype" for Scarlet Witch in The Avengers 2 but Violet & Daisy is based in a world without superheroes, though it's more than meets the eye. The Mary Sue held a special screening of the film for our readers recently, who got to see first hand just what the story about two hitwomen actually entailed. Read what Ronan had to tell us about her experience working on Violet & Daisy, her role, and her tendency toward strong women characters.

  12. Watch Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan Play A Mother-Daughter Vampire Duo in Byzantium [VIDEO]

    Bloody Good Fun

    I had the chance to see Byzantium last month, and I quited liked it. It's nice to see a vampire movie that's more a gothic adult fairy tale than an actioner or a paranormal romance (though Byzantium has elements of both). It comes out in theatrical limited release on June 28th, and I quite recommend it! (via: Deadline) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  14. Exclusive: Saoirse Ronan Talks To Us About Joss Whedon And Scarlet Witch

    The Mary Sue Exclusive

    Considering the secrecy usually surrounding our most anticipated blockbusters, we were happily surprised when director Joss Whedon flat-out admitted Marvel characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch would be appearing in the sequel to The Avengers. But there followed a rumor about Irish actress Saoirse Ronan being Whedon's "prototype" for Scarlet Witch so when we had the opportunity to speak with the actress recently, we just had to ask - would she do it?

  16. Violet & Daisy, a Trailer You Should Watch

    Cautiously Optimistic

    I know almost nothing about Violet & Daisy except what's in this trailer, and that, according to Wikipedia, it's an action, a comedy, and a drama; both surreal and violent; about teenage hit women. That's enough to make me interested. (via MovieBob.)

  19. Twilight Is Almost Over, Host Fever Begins [TRAILER]

    Assuming Direct Control

    I have no problem admitting I've read Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series (yes, even that bit online from Edward's point of view). I don't think it's classic literature, but I enjoyed it for what it was. What I haven't read is Meyer's previous novel, The Host, which has a very Invasion of the Body Snatchers-type premise. I haven't heard great things about it, but Summer Entertainment has timed its release very well to coincide with the ending of the Twilight Saga films. It stars Saoirse Ronan in the lead role though, and I adore her. Good trailer if nothing else? (via Deadline) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  20. Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan to Star in Mother-Daughter Vampire Film

    Bloody Good Fun

    Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans) and Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) will be playing vampires who are mother and daughter, respectively, in the film adaptation of Moira Buffini's play Byzantium. Their characters pose as sisters while roaming Britain for human blood. The director will be Oscar-winner Neil Jordan, who has some familiarity with the vampire genre after directing the 1990s Brad Pitt-Tom Cruise vampire hunk extravaganza Interview With the Vampire. (Geek cred: He is also set to direct the adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book.)
