Marvel has a big year planned for 2017, both behind the scenes and in theaters. Right now, Avengers: Infinity War is shooting in Atlanta back-to-back with Black Panther. And they have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok coming to a multiplex near you in the months ahead. So we're going to be bombarded with various items from all five movies in what is being called a superhero tsunami. Today, we get a new logo for Infinity War.
This logo was spotted on the back of a crew chair on set in Atalanta as shooting continues, and shared on Reddit. The cast for the movie is quite epic and features McU stars such as Josh Brolin (Thanos), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Sebastian Stan (Bucky/Winter Soldier), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet »

Scooperhero News – Following Ben Affleck’s departure from the director’s chair, Warner Bros. might’ve already found a replacement for The Batman – which although they’re “very happy” with the script, still probably won’t be as good as The Lego Batman Movie released last week. Maybe that’ll change if Arnold Schwarzenegger joins the Dceu. Because that went so well last time.
X-Men: Supernova still seems to be about the Dark Phoenix Saga, and Josh Brolin needs to get used to talking about comic book movies again. He’s already potentially leaked one name for Avengers: Infinity War.

Looks like the Mad Titan’s grand masterplan in Avengers: Infinity War has been revealed – and it doesn’t seem to involve Mistress Death.
First spotted by Lrm, the latest Infinity War tidbit was buried in today’s Digital HD release of Doctor Strange, which proved to be a treasure trove of Marvel-related trinkets after concept art for both Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok surfaced online earlier this morning. As for Joe and Anthony Russo’s 2018 ensemble movie, co-writer Stephen McFeely participated in the Infinity War featurette that’s included on Strange‘s home video release, in which McFeely hinted at Thanos’ ultimate goal.
Death to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? How about disbanding the Guardians of the Galaxy once and for all? Not quite. According to McFeely, Thanos wants to bring balance back to the universe and essentially rule undisturbed.
“His goal is to rebalance the universe as he sees it. »

Marvel fans were delighted at the end of last week when Marvel Studios decided to pull down the veil of secrecy and release a behind-the-scenes video for Avengers: Infinity War. Fans got to see Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) hanging out together, which was pretty cool. But perhaps more cool was the look at Thanos that was provided in the video. Now, in another welcomed reveal, Avengers: Infinity War co-writer Stephen McFeely has explained Thanos' grand plan.
Just in case you were worried, Stephen McFeely doesn't really give any spoilers, but just merely gives an idea of what Thanos is ultimately trying to accomplish in vague terms. The reveal comes courtesy of the Doctor Strange Blu-ray/DVD release, as reported by Screen Rant. Here is what McFeely had to say about Thanos' plan in Avengers 3.

Late last night, Marvel dropped an exciting sneak peek at Avengers: Infinity War. And while it did give us our first look at Iron Man, Spider-Man and Star-Lord on set together, it also showed off some intriguing new fan art. Two of the pieces show Josh Brolin as the main character Thanos. And another piece, that is sure to get fans salivating, has Rocket Raccoon teaming up with Thor. We've collected these image from the video and embedded them below along with the videos that were released like tiny Marvel presents in the middle of the night.
Thanos was first introduced as a smirking purple alien sitting in a floating chair at the end of 2012's Avengers. Ever since, fans have been waiting for this hulking menace to make his presence fully known. Josh Brolin, who plays the character, did show up for a more substantial role in Guardians of the Galaxy. »
“Avengers: Infinity War” is shaping up to be the ultimate superhero reunion that fans have been waiting for. Production is officially underway on the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and with it comes the first glimpse – and confirmation – that the Guardians of the Galaxy and Spider-Man will battle alongside Iron Man, Captain America and the rest of the superhero clan.
In a behind-the-scenes video shared by Marvel, Robert Downey Jr. is seen with “Guardian’s” Star-Lord Chris Pratt and the new webslinger Tom Holland on set at the Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, talking about how excited they are to be working together.

The Russo Brothers are currently hard at work in Atlanta shooting Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, a shoot that is expected to take most of 2017 to complete. The next two Avengers movies are going to be the culmination of 10 years worth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will see the Marvel heroes fighting their greatest foe yet; Thanos. Now, Marvel Studios has released a brand new, behind the scenes video, giving us our very first look at Avengers: Infinity War, and it is amazing.
Marvel dropped the video online out of nowhere, completely surprising fans with their first look at the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. It may not be a trailer, but it is easily the next best thing and is more than enough to get McU fans extremely excited. In the video, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige had this to say about finally bringing Thanos properly into »

Earlier today, Marvel released a very cool behind the scenes video for Avengers: Infinity War presented by Robert Downey Jr., Chris Pratt and Tom Holland. As you may have noticed, it also featured some concept art for the Joe and Anthony Russo-helmed movie, and you can take a closer look at that in the gallery above.
What does it tell us about Avengers: Infinity War? For starters, we see Rocket Raccoon fighting alongside Thor, a piece of imagery which promises to be downright incredible in live-action. However, take a closer look and you’ll notice that the God of Thunder is no longer wielding Mjolnir; instead, it looks a lot more like his axe Jarnbjorn. That could be an indication that the hammer will be destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok later this year.
Tony Stark, meanwhile, can be seen looking at some more Iron Man suits, »

Grab your web shooters and stifle your Spider-Sense. Marvel has announced that Spider-Man will be making an appearance in its 2018 superhero sequel “Avengers: Infinity War.” The news was revealed this afternoon by actor Tom Holland, who dropped in on a Facebook Live event hosted by Robert Downey Jr. Holland’s appearance in the Russo brothers-directed film isn’t entirely a surprise. “Infinity War” already boasts a super-sized roster of Marvel MVPs that includes the cast of “The Avengers”, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, Josh Brolin’s villain Thanos, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” cast, and more.

Avengers: Infinity War has been shooting in Atlanta for a couple of weeks now, and Marvel Studios has announced the start of production today with a video which takes us behind the scenes of the highly anticipated release. Kicking off with Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), and Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) on an alien landscape, we then hear from Kevin Feige and directors Joe and Anthony Russo about what we should expect from the film.
Among the highlights are some brand new concept art of Josh Brolin’s Thanos, Tony Stark looking on at another army of suits, and most excitingly, Rocket Raccoon fighting side by side with Thor (who appears to be wielding a very different Mjolnir, a possible Ragnarok spoiler).
Marvel is shooting Avengers: Infinity War and the currently untitled fourth instalment back to back, and with a few other releases to promote »

Like Josh Brolin’s problem-solving studio head in “Hail, Caesar!,” the Coen brothers’ love letter to ’50s Hollywood, production designer Jess Gonchor was also a Fixer of sorts. And he did it the old-school way with hand-crafted plastering, sculpting, molding, and scenic painting.
“Hail, Caesar!” was shot mostly on the stages of the old Goldwyn Studios/Warner Hollywood (now called The Lot), but they also built outdoor sets on such famous locations as the Big Sky Movie Ranch in Simi Valley and Vasquez Rocks Natural Park.
However, the highlight was using the old tank on Stage 30 that was originally built for Esther Williams at MGM (now Sony) for all of the synchronized swimming work starring Scarlett Johansson. They opened up the pit and filled it with water but also used it for the submarine sequence.

The DC Comics universe hasn’t flooded the big screen the way Marvel ones have, but the DC brand has been hitting the big screen longer in the era of color. We ranked all those modern flicks, from “Batman: The Movie” to “The Lego Batman Movie.” 30. “Jonah Hex” (2010) Despite the efforts of Josh Brolin and Michael Fassbender, this is one of the worst comic book movies of the modern era. 29. “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” (1987) Christopher Reeve is by far the best Superman. But “Superman IV” is a bomb in every sense — partly because of its heavy-handedness about bombs. »

James Cameron, here in the role of producer, is revving up the gears for his manga adaptation Alita: Battle Angel. Back in October it was announced that newcomer Jorge Lendeborg Jr. – who is all set to star in this year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming – had joined the cast, and now it’s been confirmed that Jennifer Connelly has also signed up for this grand adaptation.
Connelly, who is currently filming director Joseph Kosinki’s (Tron: Legacy) Granite Mountain alongside Miles Teller, Andie MacDowell, Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin, is lined up to play a ruthless villain in Alita: Battle Angel which has already started filming in Texas with Maze Runner’s Rosa Salazar as the lead character.

And on the subject of Thanos, Marvel supremo Kevin Feige has been discussing his role in the film, stating that “you could almost go as far as to say he is the main character.” Read Feige’s comments in full here.

Avengers: Age of Ultron may have been a big success financially, but most fans would agree that it didn't quite live up to the original Avengers. So, there is quite a bit of pressure on Avengers: Infinity War, which will be unleashing Thanos on the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year. The movie is currently filming in Atlanta and the cast is absolutely massive. Josh Brolin, as it turns out, may have just accidentally revealed a previously unannounced cast member for the movie in the form of Benicio Del Toro as The Collector.
According to McU Exchange, Josh Brolin recently did an Instagram live stream discussing the upcoming scenes that he is filming for Avengers: Infinity War. Though the video has since been deleted, he said that he would be shooting some scenes with Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora and Benicio Del Toro, who played The Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy. »
Avengers: Infinity War is a few weeks into filming, and even though Marvel has yet to issue an official press release, we've been receiving plenty of juicy updates from the cast of the massive film. This latest piece of news comes to us from Josh Brolin, the actor who will breathe life into the film's big bad, Thanos. In a recent live stream on his personal Instagram account, the Academy Award-nominated actor let it slip that he would soon be shooting scenes with three Guardians of the Galaxy stars: Chris Pratt (Jurassic World), Zoe Saldana (Live By Night) and Benicio Del Toro (Sicario). While Pratt & Saldana had been confirmed to appear long ago, this was the first such mention of Del Toro being involved with the two-part Infinity War. To add fuel to the fire, not long after the initial news broke Del Toro was photographed in Atlanta, which is »
It’s all been building to this. Building and building and building. This climatic Marvel movie where Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will finally battle Thanos is now in production, and it seems yet another character is joining the cast.
Avengers: Infinity War — the closing of Phase Three of the McU — is going to be a packed affair, everybody who is anybody is invited, and it looks like Benicio Del Toro’s The Collector is on the guest list as well.
Reported by McU Exchange, Josh Brolin posted (and since deleted) an Instragram video discussing the scenes he is filming for the upcoming superhero extravaganza. In the video he apparently lists off a bunch of names he is working with. Names like Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana. However, also included amongst these names is no other than The Collector himself, Benicio Del Toro.

It has been confirmed a number of times that the characters in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be part of the massive ensemble cast for Avengers: Infinity War. This has already sent fans into a speculative frenzy about how Guardians may set up the events that play out in Marvel's Infinity War, which recently started production in Atlanta. According to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, don't expect any direct connections between Guardians 2 and Avengers: Infinity War. Here's what the executive had to say in a recent interview on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
"I always say, all the movies, Civil War is a standalone story about that, but that fit into [the McU]. This is even more of a standalone story than that. This is about the characters. This is about their evolution as heroes, as their own internal family, as the group, a group of »
