— Colbie Smulders is The Frontrunner To Play Maria Hill in The Avengers

She’s the female star of How I Met Your Mother who was not in American Pie. Maria Hill is  a S.H.I.E.L.D agent who is by Nick Fury’s side (played by Samuel L. Jackson, The Other Guys) and, in the comic books at least, took over as director of S.H.I.E.L.D before Tony Stark stepped in. Though my only knowledge of her acting chops are from the HIMYM, which she has a great comedic presence, I believe just by her look that she could play this very serious role well. It’s a role that will be very similar to the intimidating presence that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury brings to the screen and will most likely be signing a multi-film contract similar to the one Samuel L. Jackson signed after the first Iron Man film.

The Avengers begins filming in April with a Summer 2012 release date scheduled. So excited!

— Joseph Gordon-Levitt Enters Talks For The Dark Knight Rises

Joseph Gordon-Levitt entering talks for any film is just good news. He’s a great up and coming young talent much like Ryan Gosling. Except for Ryan Gosling (The Notebook, Murder by Numbers, Fracture), and much credit has to be given to him, likes to stick to indie films. Though Hollywood started to catch onto Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s talent after the movie Brick, which is a great detective film you should definitely watch, his star started rising after the films (500) Days of Summer & G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra but catapulted after recently starring in Christopher Nolan’s Inception last year. Rumor has it that he will be playing the role of The Riddler, which he would be perfect for though I kinda hope he just plays Edward Nygma and we don’t ever actually see him as The Riddler…. side note, I don’t actually know if Edward Nygma is his real name or if I’m just pulling that from Batman Forever.

As I’m writing this, I’m realizing that Gordon-Levitt has done his fair share of indies as well mixed with the big studio films…More films starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt is just good news! He’s currently filming Looper with Bruce Willis (Red, Expendables) & Emily Blunt (Charlie Wilson’s War, The Devil Wears Prada) which re-teams him with his Brick director, Rian Johnson.
