Incredibly excited to share this all with everyone. First of all, it’s the first Marvel Studios interview I’ve conducted in my life! And second, it couldn’t have been with a more wonderful actress — Olga Kurylenko!
Now for those of you who have not seen Black Widow yet, I not only encourage you to do so because 1.) it’s awesome (I really don’t care what the haters say!), and 2.) the below contains pretty heavy spoilers pertaining to the movie.
Keith returns to Hard NOC Life just in time to review the MCU’s return to the multiplex with Britneyand Dominic. In addition to discussing what Black Widow’s box office dominance portends for the future, the crew also takes stock of the penultimate episode of Loki on Disney+.
This is it folks! This week, we’ll all finally get to see Black Widow! And in anticipation of the release of the film, Marvel Studios has released a new featurette for the film, featuring Kevin Feige and Scarlett Johansson talking about the film’s connections to the larger MCU.
There’s honestly nothing in this world that makes me happier than Marvel Studios does. And naturally, we have not done a press conference for an MCU film since Endgame back in 2019. And I know we’ve had three shows to kick off Phase 4, of course; one of which I was lucky to attend a press conference for. But to be honest, there’s something different and special about the films that just represents everything we love about this universe. And to be able to say we’ll have the chance to return to theaters and see the MCU play out on the big screen again? That’s just incredibly exciting and wonderful!
This is it folks! Tickets for Marvel Studios’ Black Widow are now officially on sale! And while I got mine for the opening night event, I’ve noticed they are going faster than Quicksilver did in Age of Ultron (too soon?). However to celebrate our return to theaters and the release of real actual theatrical tickets, the good folks at Marvel Studios dropped another behind the scenes featurette highlighting the action from the film.
We’re almost there fans! Just a little over a month before we return to theaters (or Disney+ with Premier Access) for our next big MCU experience, Black Widow! WithA Quiet Place Part IIand Creulla lighting up the box office in a huge way this weekend, along with the excellent rate at which we’re getting people vaccinated, it’s not hard to speculate this could be the biggest theatrical opening ever in a post-pandemic world. And honestly, it’ll be nice to return to a theater again. We’ve of course loved WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter SoldierCaptain America and the Winter Soldier. And we’re absolutely sure we’re going to love Loki. But there’s honestly really nothing like the experience of seeing real MCU action on the biggest screen possible in a darkened theater. And Marvel Studios knows this!
Tonight during the MTV Movie Awards, Scarlett Johansson was honored with the MTV Generation Award for her contributions to Film and Television. And when you think about how much ScarJo has accomplished in her career at only 36, it makes you feel very unproductive. She’s barely older than me, and she’s ascended the ranks of SHIELD, stopped a Chitauri invasion, destroyed Ultron, fought Team Stark over the Sokovia Accords, fought Thanos, and avenged the world! In comparison, I review movies (which is admittedly a lot safer).
This morning Marvel Studios dropped a few really, really, really, ridiculously good looking posters for Black Widow showcasing the full ensemble! You can get a closer look at the Widow-family as well as Taskmaster and O-T Fagbenle’s characters below!
