Disney/Marvel unveiled the trailer for the film which fans of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) have been clamoring for since the Black Widow character, played by actress Scarlett Johansson, was first introduced ten years ago in “Iron Man 2”. The “Black Widow” film will mark the start of Phase 4 for the MCU and is slated for release on May 1, 2020.

During the 2012 making of the crime drama, “Lawless” rumors swirled around that LaBeouf and Tom Hardy got into a heated argument which led to LaBeouf punching out Hardy. That’s right LaBeouf punched out Bane from that Batman movie. In 2017 the actor was arrested for drunken intoxication. LaBeouf was ordered to pay some fines, perform 100 hours of community service, get counseling for anger management, and complete drug and alcohol evaluation. It was while in rehab that LaBeouf wrote the screenplay Honey Boy. The screenplay serves as autobiographical. In the film, LaBeouf plays an alcoholic abusive father to a child actor. Honey Boy director Alma Har’el, told the press that LaBeouf sent him the script while in rehab. LaBeouf won the Breakthrough Screenwriter Award at the Hollywood Film Awards back in November. While receiving the award LaBeouf thanked the officer that arrested him. The official trailer for Honey Boy is …

In the series, which is based upon the comics by Johnathan Mayberry and Alan Robinson, Dr. Swann enters a world of untold horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne (Adrian Holmes), into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans. As the disease spreads, society fractures into opposing camps pitting normal people against these “vampires.” Swann races against time to understand what’s happening, while Fayne rises to become the leader of the vampires. “V-Wars” is built upon many different layers and is not necessarily your typical vampire series. There are added levels of science fiction, social commentary, and human conflict. “V-Wars” will begin streaming on Netflix starting on Thursday, December 5th and will consist of ten episodes, however, to hold you over in the meantime, we caught up with series star and executive producer Ian Somerhalder to chat about the series, it’s creation, how it speaks to society as a whole and more!
