PEOPLE – It looks like Stephen Colbert really is leaning in.
After calling late-night television “a bit of a sausagefest,” Colbert has landed two mega-watt female stars – and all-around powerful women – as some of his first guests when he takes over The Late Show on Sept. 8.
Captain America: Civil War superhero Scarlett Johansson is set to stop by Sept. 9, and breakout comedian Amy Schumer will drop in Sept. 11, CBS announced Monday. (A tip for Colbert’s Eminem-tested, celebrity-ignorant alter ego: Don’t call the former “ScarJo.”)
Trainwreck, which Schumer wrote and stars in, has grossed more than $120 million worldwide. Schumer, 34, has also aligned herself with her cousin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, to advocate for gun control. Meanwhile, Forbes has anointed Johansson, 30, No. 2 on its World’s Highest Paid Actresses list, and she’s also incredibly politically active.
Beautiful! Next spring will be a busy time for Scarlett with not only The Jungle Book, but also her role in Captain America: Civil War (which is due for a May release) to promote. Those at D23 were treated to footage of Scarlett in both films, but unfortunately, it seems she was not in attendance at the event.
IGN – A new poster for Jon Favreau’s version of The Jungle Book was revealed by Disney today at the D23 Expo. It shows Ben Kingsley’s Bagheera staring down a curios Mowgli, played by Neel Sethi. Take a look below. The Jungle Book premiers April 2016.
Disney revealed some new footage as well, showing Bill Murray singing Bear Necessities under his breath, and the big reveal of Christopher Walken as King Louie, Kingsley as Bagheera, Idris Elba as Shere Khan and Scarlett Johansson as Kaa.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Marvel Studios kicked off Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday with a tease of its upcoming clash of the titans, Captain America: Civil War, in which the red, white, and blue good-guy battles the red and gold good-guy Iron Man over who should control the fate of superpowered beings.
10:48 a.m. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige takes the stage, recalling being at the first D23 in 2009, where they teased the ambitious plan to unite their characters in a shared universe. “Today, 2015, I stand here, and we have now completed Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I want to say think you,” he said. “So the question is what am I going to talk about today. It seems to make sense … to talk about the beginnings of Phase 3.”
10:50 a.m. “The first one I’m going to talk about today is Doctor Strange,” Feige said. “The goal is to continue expanding what a comic book movie is, what the Marvel Cinematic Universe is. The comics traverse these dimensions, and film by film, we try to do that in a cinematic way,” Feige said.
Tilda Swinton is playing The Ancient One, and Chiwetel Ejiofor is co-starring as Mordo, while—everyone knows—Benedict Cumberbatch will be the good doctor. “He’s an extraordinary character, brings in a whole other dimension—hmm, multiple dimensions—to the Marvel universe,” Cumberbatch said in a video intro. He promised a “mind-blowing experience… Girls, cars, explosions, astral projection into multiple realms. The usual.”
10:53 a.m. Doctor Strange doesn’t start shooting until November, so there’s no footage to show, Feige says. But he is reluctant to appear before people who camped out all night for the panel empty handed. Here comes a collection of concept art.
10:55 a.m. Images in the concept art reel reveal the classic origin story: a wounded surgeon seeking alternate ways to heal his destroyed hands finds his way to a mystical Eastern sanctuary that leads him to an order that holds the keys to another dimension.
10:56 a.m. “It’s going to be as satisfying as any movie made, and as weird as any movie we’ve made,” Feige says.
10:58 a.m. Doctor Strange will be the second movie in Phase 3, so Feige shifts now to the first film in the line-up: Captain America: Civil War.Continue Reading
