Hugh Jackman mulls an eventual Wolverine recast. How will ScarJo's pregnancy affect Avengers 2? Check out new promos for Captain America 2 and Divergent, along with some Orphan Black teasers. Plus the first plot details for Continuum season 3. Spoilers now!
Even though Hugh Jackman's still mulling over doing another Wolverine movie, he's aware that a recasting will have to come one day:
Look, that's inevitable, man. Anyone who thinks they're indispensable in this business is fooling themselves. But I feel unbelievably blessed to have this part. I never thought in a million years I'd get to play him seven times. Every day I walk on the set with the claws and the hair, I thank my lucky stars. I don't take any of it for granted. To think that in a second version we'd have this cast and this director, and you guys don't know the script, but I would say probably the best script of all of them, is pretty amazing. I think that's why I'm still here. I'm sure by the way, that it won't always be my decision to always be here. At some point, someone will close the door on me… [Laughs]
The viral site the Daily Bugle has provided another huge hint about the movie's villains — this time providing some clues as to why Harry Osborn might be willing to subject himself to dangerous tests. It could be because OsCorp has abandoned human subjects testing, and Harry has no other subjects available. The Bugle writes:
Oscorp Industries announced today that it has destroyed any and all research it has done in the horrifying field of cross-genetics. This news comes in the wake of the recent sentencing of former Oscorp geneticist turned terrifying lizard creature Dr. Curt Connors. Once a pioneer in the field of cross-genetics, Connors's work transformed him into a literal monster who rampaged across Manhattan.
Following the news that Scarlett Johansson is pregnant came the news that Black Widow's scenes in Avengers: Age of Ultron have been fast-tracked. Although it hasn't been confirmed by Marvel, E!'s reporting that she'll report to the set on April 5th, right after finishing the press rounds for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. [Coming Soon]

IGN has a bunch of character descriptions for the new show (and you can see a bunch of photos here):
Vanessa Ives (Eva Green): Poised, mysterious and utterly composed, Vanessa is a seductive and formidable beauty full of secrets and danger. She is keenly observant — clairvoyant even — as well as an expert medium. Her supernatural gifts are powerful and useful to those around her, particularly Sir Malcolm, but they are also a heavy burden. Her inner demons are very real to her and everyone around her, and they threaten to destroy her relationships, her sanity, and her very life.
Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton): A hardened African explorer on a deeply personal quest, Sir Malcolm has nonetheless paid a heavy price for his exciting career. Although his stately home is filled with marvelous souvenirs of his travels, it is devoid of family and loved ones. With Vanessa's help, he is determined to right the wrongs of his past, but his toughest journey lies ahead.
Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett): A charming American who finds himself trapped in the darkest corners of Victorian London, Ethan's charm and brash ways are catnip to the ladies. When Sir Malcolm enlists him to help in a personal quest, Ethan meets Brona Croft, a beautiful local with a mysterious past. But behind Ethan's bright eyes lurk dark secrets. He is running from something, and his troubling past threatens to overtake him at every turn.
Brona Croft (Billie Piper): Brona is a poor Irish immigrant to Victorian London trying to escape a dark and sordid past. The Gaelic meaning of her name is "sadness," yet she remains lovely, spirited, and erotically alive. She forms a bond with Ethan Chandler, who will do anything for her.
Sembene (Danny Sapani): Sembene is an African man with ritual face scarring who serves as Sir Malcolm's sentry and confidant. He has an air of mystery about him and his heroic efforts will prove invaluable to Sir Malcolm in his personal quest.
