SCARLETT JOHANSSON PODE FINALMENTE GANHAR FILME SOLO DE VIÚVA NEGRA

Durante uma entrevista sobre Capitão América: Guerra Civil, os irmãos russos foram questionados sobre se eles estariam interessados ​​em fazer um filme solo de Viúva Negra. Apesar do calendário do estúdio não constar nenhuma produção envolvendo Natasha Romanova de maneira solo, é possível que algo seja alterado:

“Ah, sim, nós amamos esse personagem, e nós amamos Scarlett. Nós achamos que (Viúva Negra) é uma das personagem mais ricas – se não a mais rica – no universo Marvel. Ela é assombrada por demônios e sua compreensão do mundo é fascinante . Eu acho que há muita coisa que pode ser feito com esse personagem.”

Ambos Scarlett Johansson e Kevin Feige têm comentado sobre a possibilidade de um filme solo de Viúva Negra; Scarlett recentemente dissera que “compartilha uma visão similar.”

“Eu acho que há espaço para um filme independente. Natasha tem uma história realmente rica de origem, e eu tenho sido muito cobrada para construir esse personagem a este ponto onde eu acho que agora posso começar a revelar lados diferentes da dela.”

Mas para além destas citações, não há nada que a Marvel está realmente considerando um filme solo. Como nas história em quadrinhos são muito emocionante, qualquer filme sobre ela seria épico. Vamos ficar na torcida quem sabe essa novela tem um final feliz!

Herrera hits 2 homers, Nola goes 7, Phils beat Braves 7-3

Odubel Herrera hit two homers, Jorge Alfaro also went deep and Aaron Nola pitched seven innings to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 7-3 Friday night.

Braves right-hander Julio Teheran left after three innings because of tightness in his right upper trapezius. There was no word on the extent of his injury.

Nola (3-1) settled in nicely after allowing three runs in the first. He didn’t give up another run and surrendered seven hits.

Acuna robbed Herrera of extra bases with a diving, backhanded catch on a sinking liner to left.

Braves: C Tyler Flowers was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list and C Carlos Perez was designated for assignment. The team also recalled Whitley from Triple-A Gwinnett and RHP Matt Wisler was optioned.

Phillies: RHP Ben Lively was placed on the 10-day DL because of a strained lower back. Righty Jake Thompson was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

RHP Mike Foltynewicz (1-1, 2.77 ERA) starts for the Braves on Saturday while RHP Nick Pivetta (1-0, 2.57 ERA) goes for Philadelphia. Foltynewicz is 3-2, 4.02 in nine appearances against the Phillies. Pivetta is 3-0, 2.77 in five starts vs. Atlanta.

St. Louis Cardinals center fielder Tommy Pham was back in the starting lineup and went 4-for-6 on Thursday afternoon. He was forced from Wednesday’s game when he suffered a cut to his forehead while preparing in the batting cage for his second at-bat.

“He’s resting as comfortably as he can be,” said Showalter, whose last-place Orioles have lost 18 of their first 24 games. “We’re just going to take it day by day, but I’m not planning on him being a big league player for six weeks.”

Beckham is the third key position player to hit the disabled list for the O’s. He joins All-Star second baseman Jonathan Schoop, who’s been out since April 14 with an oblique strain, and designated hitter Mark Trumbo, whose quad strain has kept him out all season. Closer Zach Britton (Achilles) and outfielder Colby Rasmus (hip flexor) are also on the DL.

Prior to hitting the shelf, Beckham had been the Orioles’ starting third baseman, hitting .179 with one home run and four RBIs in 23 games this season. A former top overall pick by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2008, the 28-year-old Beckham came to Baltimore last July 31 in a trade with Tampa. Playing exclusively shortstop, he posted a .306 average with 10 homers in 50 games following the trade. This year, with Manny Machado moving from third base back to his natural position of shortstop, Beckham made the switch to third.dolphins_035

John Lynch: Reuben Foster will be cut if proven he hit woman

General manager John Lynch said Monday the San Francisco 49ers will be patient through linebacker Reuben Foster’s legal issues in a domestic violence case but stressed he won’t remain on the team if it determines he hit a woman.

“I’m not at liberty to go in depth on this because it’s an ongoing legal process, and we’re going to respect that. I do have a couple of thoughts. Speaking for Jed (York) and Kyle (Shanahan) and speaking for the York family, as you all know and as our release indicated, we take the gravity of these charges extremely seriously. We do feel like patience is the right approach right now. We’re going to learn things through this legal process.

In addition to the aforementioned felony charges in California, Foster is also facing second-degree marijuana possession charges in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, after an arrest there on Jan. 12. His next hearing for that is scheduled for May 2.

Either case could lead to discipline from the NFL, up to and including suspension. Foster’s cases will be reviewed under the league’s policies on substance abuse and personal conduct.

The 49ers drafted Foster 31st overall last year after questions about his health and character caused him to drop from being a possible top 10 pick.

Last year, 182 players, including 137 from American colleges, were on the early-entry list, up from 162 total and 117 from colleges in 2016.

Sixty-four college underclassmen kept their names in the NBA draft a year ago, which was up from 60 in 2016. This year, more than 55 college underclassmen have already either signed with an agent or announced they will sign with an agent, forgoing their remaining college eligibility. That list includes likely lottery picks Deandre Ayton (Arizona), Marvin Bagley III (Duke), Jaren Jackson Jr., (Michigan State), Michael Porter Jr. (Missouri) and Mohamed Bamba (Texas). Luka Doncic, expected to be selected in the top five in the June 21 NBA draft, was one of the 55 international players to declare.

However, the majority of the college underclassmen who have declared have not yet signed with an agent. The NBA rule allows players to retain their eligibility as long as they withdraw before May 30, 10 days after the conclusion of the May 16-20 NBA draft combine in Chicago.

A few key players, and potential first-rounders, decided not to test the NBA’s draft process, including Arkansas big man Daniel Gafford, Gonzaga sophomore forward Rui Hachimura and Virginia redshirt freshman De’Andre Hunter.dolphins_116

Ole Miss objects to waiver request of ex-QB Shea Patterson

Ole Miss has formally objected to former quarterback Shea Patterson’s request to play college football in 2018, according to Patterson’s attorney.

The former Rebel quarterback transferred to Michigan in December. He petitioned the NCAA to waive its usual one-year transfer waiting period this spring on the grounds that his old coaches at Ole Miss lied to him and other players about the degree of trouble the program was in for violating NCAA rules.

“Following reports concerning the interviews of Derrius Guice at the Scouting Combine, the League conducted a thorough investigation, which included a formal review and report from every club that interviewed Mr. Guice during the Combine, as well as discussions with Mr. Guice, his agent and others,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement. “The investigation did not confirm that any club made the reported inquiries. Nonetheless, we used this opportunity to reaffirm our workplace standards and emphasize the importance of fully complying with all requirements of federal and state law. The NFL and each of its member clubs remain fully committed to fair and non-discriminatory employment practices.”

At the time of the accusation, the league released a statement deploring such questions.

“Everyone who works in the NFL, including cheerleaders, has the right to work in a positive and respectful environment that is free from any and all forms of harassment and discrimination and fully complies with state and federal laws,” the statement read.

“If the NFL is serious about this statement,” Blackwell said in Tuesday’s letter, “then this should be an acceptable settlement demand.”

Tillman (1-4) struck out five and walked two on 98 pitches to get Baltimore its second win in 13 games. Tillman had gone 22 straight starts without a victory since May 7, 2017 — his first outing of last season. He also pitched past the sixth inning for the first time since Aug. 11, 2016.

Manny Machado hit his team-leading ninth home run and added an RBI single in the eighth. Richard Bleier pitched a perfect eighth, and Mychal Givens closed out the ninth.

Tillman provided a needed performance for the Orioles (7-19), who are enduring the second-worst 26-game stretch to begin a season in franchise history. The team started the 1988 season 0-21 before winning two of its next five games.sl_cardinals_046

Penguins erase 2-goal deficit, beat Capitals 3-2 in Game 1

After the Capitals scored early, the Penguins scored often to stun their rivals with yet another comeback.

Patric Hornqvist, Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel scored in a 4:49 span to help Pittsburgh erase a two-goal deficit in the third period and the Penguins beat Washington 3-2 on Thursday night in Game 1 of the second-round series.

“I thought he was locked in all night long,” coach Mike Sullivan said. “He made some big saves for us, especially when they were pressing down the stretch there. … When you get those types of saves, it’s easy to play with some confidence in front of him.”

Murray couldn’t predict a furious comeback, but he wasn’t shocked, either. Not after Pittsburgh has won nine consecutive playoff series dating to 2016, including two against these Capitals.

Eric Karabell: I am paying close attention to Cincinnati Reds infielder Nick Senzel, for it is important which position he plays and how he does at the plate. It’s a bit like Acuna’s call-up foolishly being delayed by the Braves because he wasn’t hitting like a star in the minors. He never wanted to be there in the first place. Neither does Senzel. He can hit in the majors right now and should be hitting second in the Reds’ regular lineup and is capable of playing second base and third base. The Reds have nothing special at shortstop, but I can understand why he is not being pushed to play there. On the pitching side I’ll also watch Chicago White Sox right-hander Michael Kopech. The strikeout ability is so special I think he is worth stashing now, even if the White Sox are bad and wait a few months to call him up.

Tristan H. Cockcroft: For me it’s Senzel, whom I think would already be in the majors if he had begun the Triple-A season with better hitting stats — he’s hitting .246/.333/.361 through 15 games for Louisville. In fact, I preferred Senzel to Torres for the 2018 full season at the onset of the regular season, once both had been assigned to the minors, as the Reds showed a willingness to be creative with Senzel’s position, which is sure to accelerate his ascent to the majors. Through those 15 games, Senzel has made nine starts at second base and six at third base, and he also logged some time at shortstop during spring training.jets_013

Mitchell scores 33, Jazz rout Thunder 113-96

Shutting down the Utah Jazz offense is proving easier said than done for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

For a second straight game, a late second-quarter surge by Utah carried over into the second half and it allowed the Jazz to pull away for a 113-96 victory Monday night. The Jazz used a 20-3 run spanning the end of the second quarter and the start of the third to break open the game.

The Thunder opened a 26-19 lead late in the first quarter when Carmelo Anthony capped a string of three straight Oklahoma City baskets with an alley-oop layup. They held onto the lead for much of the second quarter until Utah finally woke up on offense.

Starting with Gobert cutting to the rim for a dunk with 3:45 left in the second quarter, the Jazz scored on 11 straight possessions. Ingles fueled the surge by hitting three consecutive 3s to put Utah in front 58-52 before halftime.

“These guys are great at telling me to shoot it as much as possible within the flow of our team and our offense,” Ingles said.

Desperate to break out of a slump, Marcell Ozuna resorted to changing lumber.

The move worked wonders for the St. Louis Cardinals’ outfielder.

Using a bat borrowed from teammate Jose Martinez, Ozuna hit a tiebreaking two-run single, and Michael Wacha won his fourth straight start as the Cardinals beat the New York Mets 9-1 on Wednesday night.

“This is something for him to build off of,” Matheny said. “It was big. This should trend towards good things in the future. Marcell is getting there.”

Wacha (4-1) gave up one run on five hits over six innings. He struck out eight and walked one. He is 4-0 with 2.78 ERA over his last four starts. His only loss this season came in a 6-2 setback to the Mets on March 31.

“I was able to put the fastball where I wanted to,” Wacha said. “Got some sweet misses.”

Wacha was just as proud of his safety squeeze bunt that brought in Paul DeJong and pushed the lead to 4-1 in the fourth. Wacha also scored two runs in the game, “for the first time since high school,” he joked.jets_049

Meek Mill released from prison, attends Sixers’ series-sealing Game 5 victory

Minutes after the first playoff series win of his career, 76ers center Joel Embiid sought out Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill and embraced him.

“I was just excited that he got to witness this because he’s always represented the city, and he loved this city so much,” Embiid said late Tuesday night.

Mill attended the Sixers’ series-clinching 104-91 win over the Miami Heat hours after his release from prison earlier Tuesday.

The commute with Rubin involved a helicopter, something the co-owner said Mill often talked about.

“You know, Meek told me every day we talked, ‘I just dream about the heli picking me up,'” Rubin said. “He said, ‘That’s what I want.’ So when they released him, we said the helicopter’s gonna pick you up.”

“But at the same time, I could have had a year of NBA development and had a year head start,” Bamba said. “So, obviously, I would love to have that opportunity if it was there for me.”

An independent commission earlier Wednesday recommended the NCAA begin working toward pushing for reforms that would end the NBA’s so-called one-and-done rule. The commission said it wanted 18-year-olds to again be eligible for the NBA draft, allowing a path to the pros directly out of high school. The earliest possible date for change based on conversations the NBA has had with its players’ union is the 2020 draft, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Bamba, a 7-foot center with a 7-foot-9 wingspan, was one of the top freshmen in college basketball this season. He averaged 12.9 points and 10.5 rebounds while ranking second nationally in blocks at 3.7 per game. Bamba totaled 15 double-doubles, including eight during an 11-game stretch in January and February.

“I don’t want to take away from anything from my time at Texas,” he told ESPN host Rachel Nichols and analysts Byron Scott and Tracy McGrady. “I think it was actually pretty darn special. The relationships that I’ve built there, and the people that I’ve come across, I met some of my best friends in life at the University of Texas.”

Bamba has been considered a top-five pick since the preseason, and he slots in at No. 5 in Jonathan Givony’s latest ESPN mock draft. He missed three games late in the season with a toe injury, but he returned to put up 13 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks during a first-round NCAA tournament loss to Nevada.jets_108

Lack of agent may be hurting Lamar Jackson

Quarterback Lamar Jackson decided that he didn’t need an agent. Some teams may be wishing he’d made a different decision.

Via Albert Breer of SI.com, NFL Network’s Mike Mayock said during the coverage of the Louisville Pro Day workout that teams are having trouble setting up workouts and meetings with Jackson. If Jackson had an agent (more accurately, a good agent), inability to communicate, coordinate, etc. wouldn’t be an issue.

The biggest issue for the Lions in drafting Barkley is their place late in the first round; they have only six picks in the draft overall, with No. 51 up next. It will be interesting to see whether Quinn can make a bold move to get a transcendent player who fits their No. 1 need.

The Bucs said bye to Martin and re-signed Peyton Barber as their default No. 1 back. That puts them in play for Barkley, and they might not have to do anything but wait their turn in order to get him with QB-desperate teams ahead of them.

That’s the word from the New York Daily News, which reports that Beckham told two Rams players he wants in.

A key element of a Beckham trade would be an assurance to the team trading for him that he wants to go. Although Beckham can’t block a trade, he has made noises about holding out for a new contract, and any team trading for him would want either to work out a new contract, or at least for Beckham to vow that he’ll show up to work on the last year of his rookie contract while they continue to work toward an extension.

So what would it take for Beckham to become a Ram? It seems unlikely that the Rams would give up two first-round picks, as the Giants are reportedly demanding, but it’s possible they’d give up their first-round pick this year and something more. If Beckham wants to go, the Giants want to build for the future and the Rams want to put together a roster that can win the Super Bowl, that trade could make sense.bills_117

Todd Gurley: Would be “awesome” to add Odell Beckham Jr.

Rams running back Todd Gurley would be happy to give up a few touches, if it meant adding a player the caliber of Odell Beckham Jr.

The Rams are in the enviable position of having a quarterback on a cheap rookie contract, and the flexibility that comes with cap space not-yet-tied-up in lucrative extensions for many stars. And that means that while talk of adding another one might be premature, it’s possible, and that’s enough to get people excited.

The Steelers are well aware of their need for Roethlisberger’s eventual replacement, thanks in part to the quarterback’s retirement consideration over the last couple years. Jones, 29, has served Pittsburgh well in his backup role, which is where he belongs. Unless the Steelers think Dobbs is capable of replacing the 36-year-old future Hall of Famer as starter, they need to address the position with a draft pick sooner rather than later.

Rivers is still going strong as he enters his 15th NFL season, so this is all about his age; he’ll turn 37 in December. LA’s signing of Smith suggests they don’t view Jones as anything more than a backup. Unless the Chargers think Smith can resurrect himself as an NFL starter while playing behind Rivers, they’d be wise to proactively plan for the latter’s eventual retirement.

That’s a serious bargain for New England, which signed running back Jeremy Hill to a similarly affordable deal (one year, up to $1.5 million with $150,000 guaranteed) last month.

Matthews’ one season with the Bills was a dud — he missed six games with injuries and finished with just 25 catches for 282 yards and one touchdown — but he was a key contributor for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2014 to 2016. A second-round draft pick in 2014, he recorded at least 67 catches and at least 800 receiving yards in each of his three seasons with Philly, totaling 225 receptions for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns during that span.

The addition of Derick Brassard has allowed the Penguins to comfortably go three lines deep. As the season wound down, it was a top line of Crosby, Guentzel and Bryan Rust, with a second line of Malkin, Carl Hagelin and Patric Hornqvist, and a third line of Brassard, Kessel and Conor Sheary.bills_070

Why Pat Shurmur, Mike Shula pairing could transform Giants’ offense

The playbook that emerges from a Pat Shurmur-Mike Shula pairing is one former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer would like to get his hands on.

Like others around the NFL, Dilfer initially was surprised when newly minted head coach Shurmur hired Shula to be Giants offensive coordinator. Though both quarterback-minded, they previously have not worked together and run different style offenses.

That’s one side of the story. To borrow wording from climactic scene in Jerry Maguire, how does Shurmur complete Shula?

“For Mike, being exposed to true West Coast philosophy of installation and teaching progression, I think is really important,” Dilfer said. “Every coach has to be under a true West Coast blue-blood guy at some point: Because they just teach it better than others.”

Giants players will get their first real look at the new offense Monday, when the voluntary portion of the offseason program begins. The NFL offseason ban on players and coaches talking schematics will be lifted as film study and meetings start.

Because of the type of personnel movement inside the division, the Saints should feel like they’re on very solid ground as the frontrunner heading into 2018.

Yes, the Saints will face the Rams this upcoming season thanks to the first-place scheduling. But the lack of major movement within the division certainly benefits the Saints at this point.

New Orleans probably flirted with more notable big-named free agents than anyone else in the NFC South. The Saints briefly dated players like Ndamukong Suh, Jimmy Graham, Jordy Nelson and Muhammad Wilkerson. They didn’t dive into any Las Vegas weddings with any of these players, though, electing to a more frugal and measured approach.

The Saints improved at linebacker by inking Demario Davis. They addressed a hole at tight end by nabbing Benjamin Watson. New Orleans beefed up at cornerback by bringing back Patrick Robinson.bills_053

Andrew Luck addresses return timetable, says he hasn’t thrown NFL football yet

Andrew Luck seemed to be in good spirits as he addressed the media on his recovery and what’s in store for his NFL career.

Luck missed all of the 2017 season and a large chunk of 2016 with a lingering shoulder injury, but he indicated the recovery process is moving along well.

“If I wasn’t making progress, it would freak me out and we would have to change something,” Luck said, via the IndyStar. “But I am.”

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Brown personally met with Reid when Reid visited the Bengals on Monday. Brown, according to the source, initiated discussion regarding the issue of kneeling during the anthem. The conversation almost exclusively centered on the topic, with Brown explaining that he intends to prohibit it — and with Brown at one point asking Reid for his response.

Reid, caught off guard by the line of questioning, wasn’t willing to make a commitment on the spot.

Smith, 28, pleaded not guilty to “domestic violence, assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism” in March, according to Josh Koehn of SFGate.com, after he was accused of assaulting a woman in a San Francisco home.

“Unfortunately through these circumstances, Aldon and I are no longer together,” his fiancee, Shawna McKnight, told TMZ. “Although it’s with a heavy heart, I truly wish him the best and pray he gets the help he needs. I will always have love for him, but at this point I’m simply the victim in this ongoing case.”

Smith, who appeared in five NFL seasons between the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders, has continually faced legal issues.

He’s been charged with DUI on three separate occasions since 2012 and was charged with three counts of felony possession of illegal firearms in 2013 before having those charges reduced to misdemeanors and serving probation in that case.bills_028
