HBO is staying in business with one of its proven hit-makers.
Under the new two-year pact, Rough House Pics will develop new series for the premium cabler, which is already home to “Vice Principals” and “Eastbound & Down,” both of which hail from the company.
“Vice Principals,” which was created by McBride and Hill and stars McBride, aired its first season finale on Sunday. Its second season will debut in 2017. “Eastbound & Down,” which also starred McBride, aired for four seasons from 2009 to 2013. Both comedies were created under Rough House’s prior first look deal with HBO.
The new deal keeps Rough House in the HBO family past 2017, as “Vice Principals” has an unusual and quick format — the comedy will only be on the air for two seasons, as »

Although it's not exactly shocking news, it is nice to have confirmation that Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will indeed appear alongside the rest of the Marvel heroes in the sure to be jam-packed Avengers: Infinity War. With the threat of Thanos (Josh Brolin) quickly approaching and sure to affect the whole of the Marvel Universe, the question at this point isn't who... Read More »

Avengers: Infinity War has been the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s cosmic light at the end of its continuity tunnel for a number of years. The planned 2018 threequel to Marvel’s titular team ensemble The Avengers has been long believed to be a crucial waypoint in which all of the McU’s heroes join forces to tackle the gestating threat of Josh Brolin’s Thanos. Now, those efforts can count on the presence of one cinematic Sorceror Supreme.
In an interview appearing in the upcoming cover story in Empire, Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the title role of Doctor Strange’s arrogant surgeon-turned-Master of the Mystic Arts Stephen Strange, revealed a potent detail about the character’s future beyond the film’s release in November.
According to Cumberbatch in a set visit interview, »

Before production on Doctor Strange got going in earnest, it was revealed late last week that the chance to play Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme almost passed Benedict Cumberbatch by, at a time when the studio and director Scott Derrickson began hosting early talks with Joaquin Phoenix, Ryan Gosling and even Suicide Squad‘s Jared Leto about possibly donning that majestic cape.
Fast forward to now and, after a minor reshuffling effort behind the scenes, Cumberbatch is primed to light up the big screen as Doctor Strange come November. But as is so often the case, the actor’s contract with Marvel seems to span further than Derrickson’s origin story, and will allow for Cumberbatch to rub shoulders with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War.

Latest Thanos Update! He’s still sitting down.
Don’t give me that look…
If Latino Review are to be believed (a lot of their scoops amount to nothing), the story details described will probably come out in the film’s first trailer. Or maybe even before in a plot synopsis, so I’m not »

Warning – there could be spoilers below…
We got our first look at Avengers: Infinity War via this very innocuous set photo of Josh Brolin, and the film should be entering principal photography in November. Little is known about the plot, but Latino-Review seem to have the inside scoop.
According to the outlet, Avengers: Infinity War won’t follow the comic book arc of the same name with Adam Warlock and Magnus, but will instead borrow its plot from the premise of Infinity Gauntlet. The site claims the plot will centre around Thanos trying to impress the personification of Death (as teased at the end of The Avengers) and will use the Infinity Stones to gain god-like powers and wipe out the universe. This will lead him to Earth, where he will try and collect as many souls as possible to please Death.
Latino-Review also tease that Death could be connected »

We may have finally gotten a break in the Avengers: Infinity War case. Fair warning, this article may contain some pretty serious spoilers for the upcoming Marvel Phase 3 epic, so if you want to avoid that, turn away now. As it appears we may have learned some serious plot details for the upcoming Avengers sequel. If these details are true, they are a huge deal.
Another warning. This report should not be taken as gospel as it comes from the sometimes, but often not, reliable Latino Review. They report that Avengers: Infinity War will not be adapting the Infinity War comic book storyline as most have suspected. Instead, it will be an Infinity Gauntlet crossover, which sees Thanos, who is being played by Josh Brolin, wielding the Infinity Gauntlet with all of the Infinity Gems in order to reign destruction on the universe. Here is how Latino Review describes the plot of Avengers: Infinity War. »
It's been over four years since we first glimpsed the Mad Titan Thanos, a purple man thus far confined to a floating space jet-chair, turning around at the end of Joss Whedon's The Avengers and smirking at the thought of "courting Death." Like Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury's appearance at the end of 2008's Iron Man, Marvel Studios took an Easter egg for the fans and committed to it over several movies. It took some narrative twists to finally get Tony Stark on the Avengers, led by a Sam Jackson's Nick Fury, and now it looks like Thanos' appearance as the main villain of a film is that much closer to realization.
We've been in contact with our galactic Marvel spies (Skrulls, we uses shape-shifting Skrulls as agents of chaos) and we now have a outline of a plot synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War!

Joe and Anthony Russo are expected to commence production on Avengers: Infinity War in October, and although we may get a few sneaky set snaps (the duo have already provided fans with a Josh Brolin rehearsal pic) finding their way online in the coming months, it’s probably going to be quite a while before we’re treated to any official footage. Fortunately, we do have a very impressive fan-made trailer to keep you going in the interim.
The trailer near-flawlessly edits together footage from several Marvel movies, and even includes the occasional shot from the likes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Ang Lee’s Hulk. Infinity War will feature Thanos as the big bad, but because we haven’t seen a whole lot of the big fella in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far, he’s obviously used sparingly here, with the main focus instead being placed on »

Thanos debuted in Marvel Comics' "Iron Man" #55 (Feb. 1973), created by writer-illustrator Jim Starlin. The character has since appeared in over 30 years of Marvel Comics continuity as well as in a dedicated, self-titled series.
Thanos was born on Titan, a moon of the planet Saturn, to 'Mentor' and 'Sui-San'. Due to a genetic quirk, Thanos is born with the 'Deviant' gene and as such resembles the 'Deviants' — the cousin race of the 'Eternals' — more than his own people.
Maturing to adulthood, and via the use of bionics and mysticism, Thanos augments his abilities to become the most powerful of the Titanian-born Eternals, and is often referred to as the 'Mad Titan'.
Bitter at being an outsider, Thanos becomes fascinated with nihilism and begins a nuclear »

Josh Brolin has no fear of showing off his naked body for the world to see. Yes, the 48-year-old actor decided to drink his coffee while watching the sun rise and managed to embrace a full moon at the same time, going completely nude and taking to Instagram to prove it. "Once upon a time, there was a dude who didn't give a..." he captioned the naked pic, sitting on a chair outside a red trailer in the middle of Joshua Tree National Park. Of course, getting naked isn't anything new to Brolin. The actor stripped down for a fight scene in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

We already have a pretty good idea that Captain Marvel will feature in Avengers: Infinity War, seeing as the Russo brothers accidentally let the detail slip during a press event in the build up to Captain America: Civil War, and now the filmmaking siblings have once again addressed whether we’ll see the debut of Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers in the 2018 superhero epic.
“It’s an incredible piece of casting,” Joe Russo told The Toronto Sun. “You couldn’t ask for better. Not only is she an amazingly talented actor but she’s a wonderful human being. We’re really looking forward to the opportunity of re-teaming with her… if we were to get the chance to work with that character.”
Given that Infinity War is set to feature virtually every hero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, »

The Russo Brothers made headlines earlier this year when they revealed that their upcoming Avengers: Infinity War featured a whopping 67 characters. They have also stated that this highly-anticipated movie will unite the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, but fans have wondered if that will include the TV characters such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, along with ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. With production about to begin in a few months, the Russos recently revealed they aren't ruling out any Marvel characters quite yet.
Back in May, the filmmakers teased in an interview that they're more focused on the characters on the movie side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but they are "certainly considering" using the Marvel TV characters. In a new interview with The Toronto Sun, the filmmakers reiterated that they're still considering using the Marvel TV characters, but they won't confirm any details quite yet. »
Rome — Italy’s Leone Film Group and Rai Cinema are linking up with Lionsgate on Mexico-set thriller “Soldado,” a follow-up of sorts to Denis Villeneuve’s “Sicario,” to be directed by Italian helmer Stefano Sollima with Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin attached to star.
Under the agreement with Lionsgate, Rai Cinema will have a producer credit on the English-language pic now set to start shooting in coming weeks in New Mexico. Rai Cinema, which is the theatrical distribution arm of Italian pubcaster Rai, and Leone Film Group, a distributor which has an output deal with Lionsgate, will jointly handle theatrical distribution of “Soldado” in Italy.
“We are proud to be contributing to an important Italian genre-movie director making a big international movie in the U.S. with A-list stars,” said Rai Cinema Managing Director Paolo Del Brocco.
