It’s the battle of the superheroes in Captain America: Civil War, with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) facing off and dividing the loyalty of the Avengers. Joining Downey, who has some Jewish roots on his father’s side and is married to Jewish film producer Susan Levin, is Scarlett Johannson (who is Jewish and in an interfaith marriage with Romain Dauriac) as Black Widow on team Iron Man. It hits theaters May 8.
Congrats to Ariel Malone, the chef contestant we featured in January in conjunction with her debut on Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen. She won the competition and the head chef job at Gordon Ramsay’s BLT Steak in Las Vegas and a $250,000 prize. Growing up, Malone lamented that being biracial and from an interfaith family, she never felt like she fit in. She has certainly found her place in the kitchen!

After seven seasons, the acclaimed CBS drama legal drama The Good Wife ends it run on May 8, but it’s not the end of the working partnership between its creators, writer-producers Michelle King, who is Jewish, and her Catholic husband Robert King. The pair will have a new series on the air in six weeks: a political comedy-drama called BrainDead that goes inside the absurd world of Washington D.C. politics. Premiering June 13 on CBS, it stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Danny Pino, Aaron Tveit and Tony Shalhoub.

If you’re in LA from May 18-25, you’ll want to check out the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival, offering a wide variety of movies about the Jewish experience. We got a sneak peek at one of the selections, a comedy called The Pickle Recipe about a cash-strapped Jewish guy who hopes to make a bundle on that recipe—if he can get it from the grandma who guards it with her life. Well-known Jewish character actors like David Paymer and Lynn Cohen are in it, and there’s an interfaith wedding at the end.
