Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz In Talks To Join Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ Standalone Film

Courtesy of Variety:

The cast for Marvel Studios’ developing Black Widow solo adventure is shaping up to be something special.

Coming off her Oscar-nominated turn in The Favourite, Rachel Weisz is reportedly in talks to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in what is being described as a key role in the upcoming Black Widow standalone movie.

This news comes not long after reports began circulating that Stranger Things and Hellboy star David Harbour was also in negotiations to join the film.

Scarlett Johansson will return as Natasha Romanova, the Russian S.H.I.E.L.D. agent whom we first met in Iron Man 2.

Cate Shortland is directing from a script by Jac Schaeffer. Not much is known about the story at this point.

In addition to garnering critical praise and an Academy Award nomination for The Favourite, Rachel Weisz won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her work in The Constant Gardner in 2005.


What do you make of this news? Does the possible addition of Rachel Weisz get you any more on board for a standalone Black Widow film? Or is it too late for Marvel to make this movie? Jump down the the comments below and make your thoughts known!

Recap & Facts: The 91st Academy Awards

Last night were the 91st annual Academy Awards. There was much ado about this year’s Oscars leading up to last night’s ceremony. From losing Kevin Hart as their host to retracting a number of controversial decisions, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences found themselves under heavy scrutiny from passionate, vocal moviegoers and industry professionals alike. Rightfully so, a lot of pressure was put upon last night’s broadcast to deliver the goods.

Perhaps the biggest take away from the show last night was how smoothly everything ran without an official host. The transitions between each of the categories and their presenters was seamless, giving the show a momentum typically absent with a host who is dedicated pausing everything for minutes at a time in the name of some politically charged comedic bit. It was also a nice way to shave nearly half-an-hour off the telecast’s runtime. It was only the second host-less show in Oscars history, but don’t be shocked if the Academy opts for a third host-less ceremony in 2020.

RAMI MALEK
Rami Malek wins Best Lead Actor for Bohemian Rhapsody

As for the contents of the show, there were some pretty intriguing outcomes. Going into last night, Roma and The Favourite both tied for most nominations with 10 a piece. After it was all said and done, Bohemian Rhapsody lead the pack with four totals wins: Best Film Editing, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and, of course, Rami Malek won Best Lead Actor for his stunning portrayal of Queen front man Freddie Mercury. Green Book, Roma and Black Panther all tied for the second-most number of wins, each taking home three Oscars.

 

Best Picture wound up falling to Green Book. The civil rights dramedy also took top honors in the Best Original Screenplay category and Mahershala Ali won his second Best Supporting Actor statue in three years for his embodiment of jazz legend Don Shirely. Ali joins Denzel Washington as the only two African American actors to win multiple Academy Awards.

Interestingly, Green Book is only the fifth film in the Oscars’ 91-year history to win Best Picture without ever being nominated for Best Director. The last film to do so was Argo back in 2013. Director Ben Affleck was never nominated.

Black Panther was the first superhero film to be nominated for Best Picture. Though it did not receive any other above-the-line nominations, it still made history by becoming the first superhero film to win three Academy Awards. Composer Ludwig Goransson won for Best Original Score, Ruth E. Carter took home the Oscar for Best Costume Design and artist Hannah Beachler became the first African American woman to win Best Production Design for her work on the Marvel film.

Though the dark British comedy The Favoruite tied for most nominations this year, the film only walked away with a single victory in hand. Or should I say Olivia Colman did. The actress won Best Lead Actress, upsetting Glenn Close in The Wife, who had been stealing the narrative all awards season. Glenn Close is now the most nominated living actor without an Oscar win with seven.

After three decades in the business, Spike Lee finally took home an Academy Award. The iconic filmmaker and his colleagues won for Best Adapted Screenplay for BlackKklansman. Lee was also nominated for Best Director and Best Picture. Friend and frequent collaborator Samuel L. Jackson presented Lee with the award. Needless to say, both were enthusiastic about the accomplishment.

Alfonso Cuarón walked away with Best Director for his Mexican Netflix film Roma. The film’s wins mark the first Academy Awards victories for the popular streaming service; however, Cuarón is no stranger to such honors. He previously won Best Director for Gravity in 2013. Additionally, Cuarón took home Best Cinematography and Best Foreign Film last evening. This now means that five out of the last six Best Director Oscars have gone to Mexican filmmakers.

The 1st Annual Jordies: Awarding The Best Films Of 2018

The Motion Picture Academy is about to celebrate the 91st Academy Awards. Despite the onslaught of foolish decisions made recently by their governing body, it is a time for filmmakers and film fans alike to celebrate the art form we all love so much. Part of that celebration is sharing our thoughts on what were the “Best of” from the year before. The Academy has the Oscars, the most prestigious recognition one could achieve in Hollywood, but I have the Jordies. My totally subjective awards will soon become the annual envy of the industry!

Alright, so I’ve established these are MY Oscars. But how do they work? Glad you asked! Like the Oscars, my awards are broken down into similar categories, some are more in line with the Academy’s formal ceremony while others are fun experiments. Every film listed in that categories are my nominees for that particular award. The winners are highlighted in some obvious fashion.

Now, the Jordies don’t have restrictions. There is no maximum or minimum number of nominees required in each category. I nominate as many or as little films and/or filmmakers as I believe deserve recognition. It’s also important to note that I do not see every movie every year. I don’t get free screeners of each Oscar contender mailed to my house and sometimes I don’t even get a particular film in my area. Bare these things in mind as you reach through my ballot.

Now, without further ado, please enjoy the very first Jordie Awards!

The road to the Oscars is still being paved by the nominations of the guilds.

The Costume Designer Guild Awards have officially announced their nominees for their 21st annual awards ceremony. The nominations span the worlds of both television and film. For the purposes of this blog, I have chosen only to include the nominations centered around the world of film. In this case, that makes for three specific awards.

Once those nominees are put forth by each guild, then the entire voting body of the Academy gets to vote for the respective winners.

Winners: The Critics’ Choice Awards

Last night was the Critics’ Choice Awards, the ceremony where every film critic who is somebody come together to honor the year that just was in film. The Critics’ Choice Awards are mostly important for your Oscar pool because no other organization has a better track record for accurately predicting that year’s Academy Award Winners. It’s a bit of an odd statistic, seeing is how nobody who votes for the Critics’ Choice Awards actually votes for the Oscars.
