Every time there's a Marvel movie coming out, they always trot out a different character or characters from the franchise to make it all happy family. I feel like Jeremy Renner shows up a lot for the others - Iron Man, Thor, Cap... But what about Hawkeye? Hawkeye is probably the weakest one, right? There was some speculation that Renner wasn't happy about Hawkeye's role in the Avengers. Full Story

The Hollywood premiere for Captain America: The Winter Soldier happened last night. It’s the first time Scarlett Johansson has appeared on a red carpet since news broke of her pregnancy. And even though I’m no expert at pregnancy, even I can tell she’s pregnant. Not by the bump, by further up. Full Story

The last we heard of Joe Wright’s reimagining of Peter Pan, titled simply Pan, Garrett Hedlund had just signed on to play Captain Hook, which was very interesting. Since then, Hugh Jackman has been confirmed as the bad guy, Blackbeard—has Jackman ever played a villain before? I’m into it—and we’ve learned that the movie will start circa World War II and they will, in fact, be casting Peter as young boy (so much for Pan & Hook, Pirate Bros, booo). Full Story

The biggest movie star in the world is coming to The Social next week. On Tuesday. You should take the day off work. Because there may never be a more famous name on our show. Who? Miss Piggy. OBVIOUSLY. Oh My God, Piggy is coming. It’s because she’s promoting the new movie, Muppets Most Wanted. Full Story

The Captain America junkets have been happening over the last few days. Already? That’s what I thought. But it’s March 12. And the movie comes out April 4. So, yeah, already. The movie was screened for the journalists and some nerds.  Reaction? Sarah has been saying it’s good. Full Story

Is he imitating Matthew McConaughey?

For some reason, this was the first thought that came to mind. You remember when Matthew McConaughey was arrested for playing bongos naked? And he went on to win an Oscar 15 years later! This must have been what he meant in his Oscar speech – only instead of 10 years it shoulda been 15. Anyway, here’s Jake Gyllenhaal in Rome shooting Everest, also naked, banging on some pots and pans, only unlike McConaughey, his junk is taped up. Full Story

I don’t know if they are. I just read the caption on these photos “Shailene Woodley and reported boyfriend Theo James at LAX". It’s the natural, expected narrative, I suppose. And I guess they’re hoping that it might turn into the whole Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson Twi-Hard thing all over again? But why does it have to? Jennifer Lawrence isn’t dating Josh Hutcherson and doesn’t have to. Full Story

Disney released a poster featuring Angelina Jolie as Maleficent yesterday. The movie will be released on May 30. And that’s great timing, you know why? Cannes. The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 14 – May 25 and, well, Brange loves Cannes. And it’s not like the Jolie is new to premiering a film out of competition there. Full Story

The first trailer for Ryan Murphy’s The Normal Heart was released this weekend. The film premieres on HBO on May 25th. Mark Ruffalo, Taylor Kitsch, Matt Bomer, and Julia Roberts in a wheelchair. I can’t wait to see this. Not only because MARK RUFFALO but because for those of us who grew up 80s, who lived through the onset of AIDS/HIV, this is the story to tell. Full Story

That’s what his interviews feel like these days. Like he’s letting his guard down and we’re seeing inside the shell. The admissions of therapy, the reluctance to take on another superhero franchise, his open acknowledgment of his nervousness-bordering-on-social-anxiety. None of that is bad stuff. Full Story
