After a year-long delay, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has returned to cinemas.

Black Widow – the first Marvel movie in two years – shines a spotlight on Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff. Taking place after Captain America: Civil War, it finds Romanoff reuniting with her superspy sister to take down the organization that robbed both of their childhoods.

For something closer to home, the second season of Taskmaster NZ premiered this week, featuring a new cast of local comics battling it out in surreal tasks for the entertainment of Jeremy Wells. 

Plus, why haven't we heard anything about the New Zealand International Film Festival yet?

Flicks.co.nz editor Steve Newall joined Francesca Rudkin to discuss.
