Watch Brie Larson’s Adorable ‘Captain Marvel’ Confusion in This 2015 Interview

Brie Larson is reportedly the frontrunner to play Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, the studio’s first solo female superhero movie — which is kind of a big deal for a lot of fans. The Oscar-winning star of Room is a great choice for the part, but back in 2015, she had no idea who Captain Marvel was. That’s probably changed quite a bit since this interview took place, but it’s still pretty delightful to see her reaction nonetheless.

Cate Blanchett May Join Sandra Bullock in That Female-Led ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ Movie

We’re still not entirely sure what to call the new female-fronted Ocean’s Eleven movie, but whatever it is, it’s assembling some seriously great talent. In addition to Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence has been reportedly considering joining the lineup, while the latest name eyeing the sorta-sequel / Ocean’s-adjacent project is none other than the great Cate Blanchett — a name that would take this project from a curiosity to a must-see.

Netflix to Officially Begin Streaming New Disney Films in September

Way back in 2012 (or at least it feels way back), Netflix and Disney struck a deal for all of Disney’s movies — including Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm — to stream exclusively on Netflix Instant. According to the terms of their agreement, the deal wouldn’t kick in until 2016, which just so happens to be the year in which we are currently living. As announced today, Netflix will officially begin streaming Disney films in September, but that doesn’t mean the studio’s entire library will magically appear in your Instant browser.

New ‘Ghostbusters’ Details Shed Some Light on the Shady Villain, Possible Multiverse Plans

The first trailer for Ghostbusters offered a sizable preview of Paul Feig’s upcoming reboot, giving us a peek of the team’s proton packs in action, the new ghosts and that goofy receptionist who kind of looks like Thor. But we still haven’t seen the film’s elusive villain, played by Neil Casey — and we still don’t know much about the guy at all, really. Thankfully, recent comments from director Paul Feig and screenwriter Katie Dippold help shed some light on the reboot’s big bad, giving us a better idea of what the ladies will be up against.

Charlize Theron Would Love to Play Furiosa Again in a ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Sequel

Before you carelessly toss this news in the "obviously" pile, please remember all the reports of tension between Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road — and all the interviews after the film hit theaters, where it seemed like Theron wasn't particularly eager to work on a sequel with George Miller. And while Hardy has signed on for at least two Mad Max sequels, Theron has not, which definitely makes her enthusiastic response to the prospect of playing Furiosa again pretty exciting.

Margot Robbie to Play Infamous Figure Skater Tonya Harding in ‘I, Tonya’

It was the cry heard ‘round the world, and while Nancy Kerrigan’s harrowing story has rightfully drawn empathy for decades, the story of her infamous foe has often been reduced to a mess of tabloid drama.

Zack Snyder Wants to Make a ‘300’-Style George Washington Movie Because Sure, Why Not

Zack Snyder is going to be pretty busy for the foreseeable future. In addition to releasing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in March, the director is prepping Justice League: Part One before presumably heading right back into work for Part Two. That should keep him occupied until at least sometime in 2018, but what will Snyder do next? More superhero movies? Maybe. But he also has a non-DC flick on his mind, and while it sounds a bit crazy, it really shouldn’t surprise you.
