Easy, Cap! This ain't the 1940's anymore!
Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner are being put on blast after a recent interview promoting their upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron film.
The interviewer brought up the fact that fans of the franchise had been shipping Scarlett Johansson's character Black Widow with multiple male characters. In response, Renner dryly stated:
"She's a slut."
The two actors immediately cracked up, as Evans joked that he agreed Black Widow, aka Natasha Romanoff, was a "complete whore."
Renner then poked fun at the character's prosthetic leg,

Elizabeth Olsen sure is going to be assembling for a long time!
That's because ahead of the Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere, Scarlet Witch herself spilled the beans that she'll be playing a part in the third Captain America movie.
During a recent Q&A, the 26-year-old spoke about her upcoming role in Captain America: Civil War, saying that she would begin filming on the Chris Evans film in about two weeks.
That's such amazing news!

Iron Man doesn't have to answer your questions.
Robert Downey, Jr. sat down for an interview with Channel 4 News to promote his new movie Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The interview with Krishnan Guru-Murthy started off like your run-of-the-mill blockbuster promotion as the star talked about how he thought the Avengers sequel could be better than its predecessor.

But things took a turn when Guru-Murthy asked RDJ about a quote he said in a New York Times interview from 2008 (which ironically was promoting his very first Iron Man movie) where the actor vaguely alludes to his political views.
After Downey Jr. pointed out that his opinion has changed since the interview from five years ago, the anchor took an even darker turn and asked the actor some serious personal questions about his past. Guru-Murthy asked RDJ:

Netflix is giving the devil his deux!
Marvel's Daredevil has officially been renewed for a second season!
The gritty show about a blind lawyer who fights crime in his free time has become quite a hit for Netflix, so naturally the streaming service has ordered another round of episodes to premiere next year!

Unfortunately, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight has to drop out of Season 2 due to previous film commitments, but season one writers Doug Petrie (DeKnight's fellow Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum) and Marco Ramirez (Sons Of Anarchy) will be taking over.
We wonder if the horned hero will be making an appearance even earlier than that as Marvel's next show — AKA Jessica Jones premieres later this year!

There was a time when Disney dropping the ball meant that it was time for the next word in a sing-a-long!
With strong heroines like in Merida from Brave and Elsa & Anna of 2013's smash Frozen, Disney is stepping out of the old paradigms of princesses as damsels in distress. But it seems when it comes to Marvel, they have trouble knowing what girls want these days.
