Marvel teases Taskmaster’s introduction in the latest ‘Black Widow’ teaser

When Natasha Romanoff was killed off in “Avengers: Endgame,” the fury fans unleashed was immense, to say the least.

One thing that kept them from burning down the house (of mouse) was the fact that we would be getting a standalone Black Widow movie in 2020.

On Monday night (Jan. 13), Marvel Studios unleashed a new trailer for the forthcoming release, though it does use a lot of previously seen footage. From the second the trailer begins, you can feel the action spy-thriller vibes from the minute-and-a-half clip.

The sneak-peek begins with everyone’s favorite secret agent assassin (Scarlett Johansson) meeting up with her un-biological sister Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh). During their meet up, Natasha tells Yelena that she’s on the run after “trying to do something good” (a callback to the fact that this film is supposed to take place after the events in “Captain America: Civil War” but before “Avengers: Infinity War”).

The action goes into overdrive after we get reacquainted with the rest of Natasha’s family members Alexei Shostakov aka Red Guardian (David Harbour), and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz). We are introduced to the new generation of Black Widows who seem to be just as deadly as Natasha, Yelena, and Melina, and yes, we get to finally see the Taskmaster in all his glory take on the Red Guardian.

Check out the latest trailer for “Black Widow” above.

“Black Widow” kicks its way into theaters on May 1.

Jared Leto brings Morbius to life in the first trailer for the upcoming blockbuster

Remember when actor Tyrese Gibson took to social media to announce that the first “Morbius” trailer would see the light of day on this dreary Monday?

Could it have been just yesterday that the actor set the Twitter-sphere aflame with the revelation?

Well, yeah, it was. And now it looks like Sony may have another Tom Holland on their hands though we doubt Gibson would care.

On Monday (Jan. 13), the studio that “brought you Spider-Man and Venom” (as it boasts in the trailer) and “in association with Marvel” unleashed the first official trailer for the upcoming flick.

The two-and-a-half-minute clip introduces the viewer to Dr. Michael Morbius, who was born with a rare blood disease that should have killed him, but somehow, he’s managed to persevere. Instead of letting the condition consume him, he decides to take matters into his own hands to help people with the little time he has left.

And thus begins his tale of becoming a living vampire.

Check out the full trailer above, which features several Spider-Man easter eggs and a special cameo at the end.

Is it possible that we may finally get that long-promised Sinister Six film? Only Sony, “in association with Marvel,” knows.

“Morbius” hits theaters July 31.

‘Birds of Prey’ soundtrack features a ‘badass girl gang’ lineup

The Birds of Prey are ready to kick ass and take names and not just on the big screen.

On Friday (Jan. 10), Atlantic Records announced the title, release date, and tracklisting for the “Birds of Prey” soundtrack. Titled Birds of Prey: The Album, the 15-track collection, is due out Feb. 7.

The compilation features a “badass girl gang” of musicians including Halsey, Sofi Tukker, Charlotte Lawrence, Summer Walker, Lauren Jauregui, and Black Canary herself Jurnee Smollett-Bell performing an original song as her character in the film.

According to a press statement, the record and film “will be celebrated with a massive rollout leading up to the soundtrack and film’s arrival on February 7th, including exclusive new singles and mind-blowing music videos.”

In keeping up with that promise, the record label unleashed the first official single from the album, “Diamonds.” The track is performed by former Fifth Harmony member Normani and “Hot Girl Summer” mastermind Megan Thee Stallion (and yes, it is a take on Marilyn Monroe’s iconic song “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”).

Watch the music video for “Diamonds” above.

Birds of Prey: The Album was executive produced by Harley Quinn herself Margot Robbie, the film’s director Cathy Yan, Sue Kroll, and Bryan Unkeless. Pre-orders for the record are currently available for purchase here.

Like the soundtrack, “Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” is due out on Feb. 7. On Thursday, the second official trailer for the upcoming flick was released. That can be found here.

Brand new ‘The New Mutants’ trailer surfaces online

Rewrites.

Reshoots.

Rescheduling.

To say that 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off “The New Mutants” had hit some roadblocks may be one of the biggest understatements we have ever heard. Years after back-to-back issues plagued the film, it looks like it may finally see the light of day (and we’re using the word may very lightly).

On Monday (Jan. 6), the studio behind the long-awaited film (note, it’s still under 20th Century Fox, not Disney) finally unleashed another trailer for the flick. Described as ““an original horror thriller,” the trailer definitely doubles down on that as we watch our protagonists inside of an isolated and nightmarish hospital as they try to figure out what exactly they got themselves into.

If you’re expecting any X-Men/superhero troupes in the trailer, then you’re going to be let down as it feels more like a horror film than a superhero flick.

Watch the two-and-half-minute trailer above.

Directed by Josh Boone, “The New Mutants” stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt, Henry Zaga.

“The New Mutants” will reportedly hit theaters on April 2, but knowing its history, we’re going to remain skeptical about that.

Watch Black Widow revisit her past in the first trailer for ‘Black Widow’

“Black Widow” flies into theaters on May 1, 2020.

The Scarlett Johansson-staring film will not only be the first MCU film of 2020 but also the first flick of the cinematic universe’s Phase Four.

That’s right, we’re going into phase four with a (literal) bang.

Watch Harley Quinn navigate Gotham in first ‘Birds of Prey’ trailer

No more Mista J. (We can ALL be grateful for that.)

The (girl) gang is all here.

And did we just see Harley adopt one of her beloved “babies” (Bud..maybe Lou)?

Well, to say that there’s a lot to take in from the first trailer for the upcoming “Birds of Prey” film may be an understatement. Instead of going on about every single colorful (both visually and verbally) moment of the two-minute clip, we’re going to let you watch it again and again and see for yourselves.

Why?

“‘Cause I’m Harley-freaking-Quinn.”

“Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” rides its way into theaters on Feb. 7, 2020.
