Scarlett Johansson

  1. Scarlett Johansson May Star In Live-Action Ghost in the Shell Movie

    Hey, Scarlett. Hey, um, Scarlett. Don't...don't, uh...don't shell out.

    Lest anyone still doubted Scarlett Johansson's clout as a full-blown action star (or Hollywood's capacity for whitewashing anime), the actress has just been offered $10 million to play Major Motoko Kusanagi in a live-action, English-language remake of 1995's Ghost in the Shell.

  2. Scarlett Johansson Making the Move to TV in Edith Wharton Period Drama

    The average person only uses 10% of their corsets.

    We all know Scarlett Johansson can kick butt literally, but it's been a while since we saw her BAMF-ery demonstrated in a less overtly action-packed role. But that's all about to change—thanks to Sony Television Pictures, Scar Jo is about to ditch her gauntlets and grace the small screen as one of American literature's most ruthless female characters.

  3. Jessica Chastain Was Close To A Superhero Movie Role But Has Particular Demands For When It Actually Happens

    HIRE THIS WOMAN IMMEDIATELY

    Jessica Chastain was recently wondering why Scarlett Johansson hadn't had her own superhero movie yet, but now the truth has come out. Jessica Chastain wanted to be Black Widow, dammit!

  4. The “Potent” New Influence Of Women’s Wallets On Hollywood

    Paranormal Activity? Apparently that's on us, ladies.

    When I'm being optimistic, it feels like there was a slight shift this summer in the way Hollywood perceived women. True, Marvel still fiddle-faddled over a female-led movie, but there was cause for celebration, too: Scarlett Johansson proved her massive box-office draw, the Expendabelles movie progressed with casting news, and Columbia Pictures wants to make a female Ghostbusters reboot. So what caused this small increase in representation?

  5. Robert Downey Jr. Thinks It’s Time For A Black Widow Movie, Remains The Best Human

    Captain Marvel is also acceptable.

    Another day, another no news of a Black Widow movie in the works. We are not the only ones constantly disgruntled by this; Iron Man himself wants the world to know that it's about time ScarJo got some solo-film action. In related news, Robert Downey Jr. is still amazing.

  6. Jessica Chastain Wants to Know Why the Hell Scarlett Johansson Hasn’t Gotten a Superhero Movie Yet

    Preach.

    Marvel, you don't appear to be listening to us when we clamor for a Black Widow movie. But will you listen to Jessica Chastain? We're plebes, but she's a multiple Oscar-nominated actress, icon of class and style, and a crusader against the way the media pits women against one another. You don't want to disappoint her, do you?

  7. That Time Scarlett Johansson & I Hung Out, Or The Mary Sue’s Sideshow Black Widow Hot Toys Review

    I'm multitasking.

    I hope Sideshow Collectibles doesn't mind. My cats make cameo appearances.

  8. Yes, Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Nicole Perlman Wrote A Black Widow Script. But Marvel Has “A Lot On Their Plates.”

    WWGD, Feige? What Would Groot Do?

    In yet another round of disappointing but unsurprising Marvel Studios updates, that rumored Black Widow treatment from Guardians co-writer Nicole Perlman does exist. But are audiences any closer to seeing the "elusive" female-led MCU movie? You sweet summer children, Marvel is busy.

  9. Review: Lucy Ain’t Worth 10% of Your Brain

    Hoo boy.

    There are two things you've got to pretend if you're going to stand a chance of enjoying Luc Besson's Lucy, out this weekend.

  10. Oh Nothing, Just Scarlett Johansson Being A Super-Human Badass In The International Lucy Trailer

    We Can Cause More Damage That Way

    Yes, none of us really appreciate the "10% of your brain" thing, or the possible racial issues which may come into play in Luc Besson's Lucy, but I'm pretty sure the only thing that will be running through my mind when seeing this film will be, "Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow."
