It’s been a solid day for news on the women in the Marvel Universes. Earlier today we shared news on the writing/directing team that is apparently taking on the Kitty Pryde solo film for Fox, and now we have information on the writers for Sony’s Silver & Black tag-team ladies team-up.

Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet are going to be penning the script for the two femme fatales. Beer is relatively unknown up to now, but has an enormous slate of announced credits coming up, with M.A.S.K., Godzilla Vs Kong, Barbie and Dungeons & Dragons all on her slate. Robertson-Dworet most notably penned the script for the currently-in-production, Captain Marvel, and is also on the writing team for M.A.S.K. and Dungeons & Dragons, as well as Sherlock 3 and Tomb Raider. Gina Prince-Bythewood, who is best known from Love and Basketball and The Secret Life of Bees is going to direct, and she also wrote the first draft of the script.

No casting has been set as of yet, but based on the excitement surrounding the other projects these women are working on, hopefully this gets a worthwhile take. Does news of this writing team get you excited? Is this a movie that should even be happening? Does it tie into the rest of the MCU like Venom should? Let us know what you think!

The First Trailer For Sony’s Venom Is Here!

Today, we get the first trailer from Sony’s new Venom movie, starring Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams. As it’s only a teaser, we don’t get to see the symbiote in full action mode, but we get a healthy dose of Hardy as Eddie Brock, and at least a peek at the sentient black blob that will consume him. We’re sure to see more soon, as this is expected for an October 5th release, but for now, tell us what you think of the teaser!

Are We Wrong About Venom? New Surprising Details

For months, your Trusty Sidekicks have been bemoaning Sony for running out an ill-advised Venom movie on their own, off the back of Spidey being shifted to the larger MCU through a partnership with Disney. On our latest podcast (which you can catch the latest of here,) we even lament what we thought was causing this move by Sony, to flood us with Spiderverse characters out of defensive pride over giving up the storytelling reigns on their main Marvel character.

Not so much today. News has come out that Tom Holland has been shuttled from the Avengers: Infinity War set, to the Venom set, both filming in Georgia, for 2 days as Peter Parker in the Tom Hardy led Venom movie. Not only that, but rumor has it that the Carnage pic Tom Hardy leaked is actually indicative of the fact that Cletus Kasady will be the villain of the film, and will be the source of the additional symbiotes.

As it turns out, it’s very likely Feige and the Disney MCU team has been more involved with what’s going on in the Spiderverse than they wanted to let on. In fact, some of you may recall the Feige/Amy Pascal interview in which Pascal suggested as much, leading to one of the most hilarious Marvel press junket gifs of all time, the “Feige WTF” react (video below.) If it turns out, Feige and the MCU are parenting the entire Spiderverse, and it’s not just macho pride producing from Sony, it definitely changes our expectations for the success of not only Venom, but the upcoming Silver & Black as well. Does this change anything for you? Let us know!

There finally is a possibility of a Black Widow solo film

The idea of a Black Widow solo film has argued on both sides of the coin whether it could or should be done. Many have  wondered can the Avenger deliver without any assistance while others have said firmly “ABSOLUTELY”. Well now it looks as if Scar Jo may be getting the chance to show the former spy in action on her own.

Word around the campfire is that Marvel has tapped Jac Schaeffer to pen the screenplay. The Black List alum is the writer behind Nasty Women, as well as the upcoming Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake starring Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway. So this script is in good hands.

Should the former KGB spy actually get her own film, this becomes the second female led Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel set to hit theaters March 8,2019

Scarlett Johansson debuted as Natasha Romanoff,  Russian spy-turned-S.H.I.E.L.D. agent a.k.a. Black Widow, in 2010’s Iron Man 2. Ever since, she has become one of the MCU’s most important assets, with Johansson starring in six films, including the highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, which opens May 4.

Captain Marvel’s cast lineup is getting more and more intense with each announcement. This is one that does not slow down that excitement.

Netflix and Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It star DeWanda Wise has found herself within the Marvel Cinematic Universe and landed a co-star role opposite Brie Larson in Captain Marvel. Wise is now added to a list of heavyweights in the film that include Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law and Ben Mendelsohn.

Wise takes on the role just as Netflix renewed for a second season She’s Gotta Have It, the series adaptation of Spike Lee’s breakthrough film about a woman, Nola Darling who isbalancing a life with three lovers. This is turning out to for sure be a Happy New Year for Dewanda Wise

Who are hoping that she is playing and how pumped up are you?

 

Now Is The Time For An All-Female Marvel Movie

There has been talk of not only getting solo female driven Marvel films but now a team up of all of the strong women in the MCU. The first charge had come from Tessa Thompson now Karen Gillan who portrays “Nebula” has spoken out.  Jaren has recently recounted the story of when she teamed up with a group of them to confront Kevin Feige to make one:

Brie Larson was like, ‘We should go up to Kevin Feige and tell him to make an all-female Marvel movie,’ so we marched up there in a group, a whole herd of us, and said that to him. He was like, ‘Yeah, that would be amazing!’ but he didn’t really commit to it, but he thought it would be a great idea. Look at the success of Wonder Woman. It’s clear we all want that.”

In this day and age it is TOTALLY a possibility that Marvel would be willing to jump over this idea and head honcho Kevin Feige has said that it’s a possibility.  The biggest issue seems to be how would it all play out. Now should the concept get decided to be executed  one of the best options would be to focus on Lady Liberators, which is an all-female team in the comics with characters that have included Valkyrie, Wasp, Black Widow and Scarlet Witch. There are more characters that include She-Hulk, Storm, Tigra, Hellcat, Spider-Woman and more.

The women of Marvel recently gathered together for a photo shoot, and it certainly got fans excited for what an all-female Marvel movie would look like. That group included Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Evangeline Lilly (The Wasp), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Danai Gurira (Okoye), and Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie).

Of course are newly minted MCU friendly neighborhood Spiderman is set to get a couple of sequels to his successful Homecoming film and after all of the explosions and chaos of the Avengers Infinity War, he will getting ready to swing back into high school life and more.  Now with the major Marvel team up set to hit theaters in May of 2018, it has been discovered that production is set to begin on Spidey’s third go round of a second film in June of 2018.

With that date set to begin filming, of course now there is set to be casting notices and auditions to fill key roles for the films. Over at Omega Underground they have gotten a hold of a bit of information that may key us in into a major change to a key character in the wall crawlers universe.

from Omega Underground

A leaked audition tape from an unknown French actress by the stage name of Louna auditioning for the role of Gwen Stacy. Obviously, many remember Gwen Stacy (played by both Emma Stone & Bryce Dallas Howard) is typically depicted as a blonde haired blue eyed American love interest in Peter Parker’s life. However, if we are to base the possible inclusion of this character based on the audition tape. Marvel Studios may end up changing up the character’s origin by making her a foreign exchange student from Europe. Possibly being born in France or even Russia then transferring to Peter’s school.

Now there is reason in which one can assume this is for Gwen Stacy and even the ethnicity change. Its due to what director Jon Watts already has done from the first film. He has already changed MJ (Zendaya) and Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) and  ethnicity for the original film. With Ned now being depicted as an Hawaiian-American teenager as opposed to a blonde hair caucasian male. And the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of MJ played by Zendaya as an ethnically mixed love interest as compared to her typical red-haired caucasian counterpart in the comics. Now of course if they have changed the background of Gwen then that may mean we get something unique for her father Captain George Stacy as well.

Check out the audition tape…

Captain Stacy – “Sitting down and checking over some police reports.”

Gwen – “Haha need any help?”

Captain Stacy – “From my best cop sure; but”

Gwen – “But what?”

Captain Stacy – “Well no father wants to rush his little girl out the door. Especially, when shes going into a teenager. But I would figure you would want to spend time with kids your own age.”

Gwen – “Pass.”

Captain Stacy – “Ha whats wrong? I don’t know if you get any requests.”

Gwen – “No plenty of requests. Just not from the right sources.”

Captain Stacy – “Meaning?”

Gwen – “Well, most of the guys that come at me are jerks or want to be playboys. But then theres…this one guy. But even if he got the nerve to ask me out. I think he would get us both killed. He is such a cluts!”

Captain Stacy – “But you like him?!”

Gwen – “I don’t know. There’s something different about him.”
