Scarlett Johansson
The Avengers is a comic book fanboy’s dream of every Marvel superhero together in one movie. They’ve got Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Hulk, but the lone woman on the team made the biggest impression on the boys. At a press conference, The Avengres actors reassembled, an Scarlett Johansson kept coming up in their anecdotes.

“I just remember coming into someone’s place with a group of half naked stunt men in a hot tub,” joked Mark Ruffalo (Hulk). “Scarlett Johansson standing over them with a giant ladle, making boy soup.”

April 30th, 2012 12:30pm EDT
Robert Downey Jr
The closing weekend of the 11th annual Tribeca Film Festival went out with an epic bang worthy of superheroes. The Friday night premiere of Queen: Days of Our Lives was entertaining and funny (who knew drummers could be funny?). One of the best bits came when the band described how "Another One Bites the Dust" came about--Roger Taylor explains that John Deacon came up with the baseline; the band thought it was great and they all took a break by going out to pizza, only to find that he'd forgotten his part when they returned. But Taylor remembered!

Scarlett Johansson: 'I Would Never Take A Photo Of Someone Without Asking'

Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson hates rude fans who take pictures of her without asking, insisting the bad habit reminds her of the "worst in humanity."

The Avengers beauty has been in the spotlight since she was a child, but she will never get used to passers-by pushing camera phones in her face when she is out in public.

The star is adamant that she would never dare take someone's photograph without getting their permission first.

She tells the New Review, "I'm constantly surprised by how rude people are. You'll be having an intimate dinner with a friend and there's somebody on the table behind ...

'The Avengers' Joss Whedon Does Marvel's Super Heroes Proud

April 30th, 2012 11:18am EDT
'The Avengers'
'The Avengers' written and directed by Joss Whedon (Cabin In The Woods) has not one, not two, but six super heroes, who, under the leadership of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), director of the international peacekeeping agency, S.H.I.E.L.D. come together to save the planet of course.

And thanks to the spot on direction of Mr. Whedon and his production team, they do it brilliantly. The film, shot in 3D, works on every level.

Not to spoil anything, here are the broad strokes.

Loki (Tom Hiddleston) Thor's bro, who many of us met in the 2011 film entitled 'Thor', is still up to no good.

Don't expect Miss USA to always be prim and proper. Reigning pageant champ Alyssa Campanella, a self-confessed "science geek," attended "The Avengers" premiere at Tribeca over the weekend wearing a very risque ensemble.

Campanella, 22, wore colorful red pants with a white jacket. She didn't wear a blouse and opted to reveal quite a bit of cleavage instead.

The highly anticipated "Avengers" headlined the closing weekend at Tribeca. It opens wide on May 4 and is expected to take in $150 million during its first weekend of release.

'Supernatural' 7.20 Recap: Geekster's Paradise

April 28th, 2012 8:12am EDT

“Supernatural” has always been admirably diverse, but around the fifth season, hunting became a good old boys club. Granted, those boys were equal parts pretty and goofy, but I was still perturbed by the severe lack of female hunters, angels and key players. So I wished, prayed and may have even written a few angry emails begging for a decent female character that wasn’t a damsel in need of rescue or charmed by Sam and Dean’s spectacular faces, had no problem fighting for the greater good and maybe had a few awesome one-liners. The answer to my prayers came in the form of Charlie Bradbur...

Scarlett Johansson and her Avengers co-stars all set up meetings with dermatologists when the summer blockbuster wrapped - because they all had rashes and skin problems from their tight-fitting costumes.

The actress reveals none of the cast were thrilled with their superhero outfits - because they were designed to dazzle onscreen and not for comfort.

We love Scarlett Johansson. But the actress doesn't always put her best fashion foot forward. She arrived at "The Avengers" European premiere in London today wearing a red, black and blue floral dress. To top it off, she braided the crown of her head.

Where's the sexy Scarlett we all know and love?

The actress, who plays Black Widow in the film, looked great at the Los Angeles premiere. She looked pretty darn good at the Moscow premiere too. Should we forgive her this fashion misstep?

Chris Evans feared for his career if last year's superhero blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger flopped because he had already made "quite a few stinkers".

The Hollywood hunk reprises his role as Captain America for upcoming superhero movie The Avengers, following the financial success of his debut outing as the shield-wielding adventurer.

However, he is still coming to terms with starring in such a big box office hit following a series of under performing films.

The first few times she gave me this turd of a gift, I hung it dutifully on my wall for the entire year.
