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 »
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.
"His goal is to re-balance the universe as he sees it. »
Considering Hollywood's current obsession with sequels and big time franchises, it seemed that Legendary Pictures would want to hit the ground running on Godzilla 2 after the success of their 2014 Godzilla reboot. The development process on a follow-up has been slow, though. The sequel, which is officially titled Godzilla: King of Monsters, is still happening. And it will definitely be out in 2019. Now, we have word that the movie is scheduled to start shooting in just a few shorts months in Atlanta, Georgia.
The news comes courtesy of Omega Underground who are reporting that Godzilla 2 will begin filming on June 19 with director Michael Dougherty at the helm. Gareth Edwards, who most recently directed Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for Disney, walked away from directing the sequel last year, so Legendary turned to Michael Dougherty. He recently headed up the writer's room for Legendary's "MonsterVerse" and that apparently went well enough »
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 »
While we may have been expecting a press release, Marvel Studios had different plans in mind. Just moments ago, the Disney-backed studio released an absolutely mind-blowing behind-the-scenes video officially announcing the production start date of their biggest film yet - Avengers: Infinity War. The nearly four-minute sneak peek is introduced by three very familiar faces: Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2), and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming), who share a few of their thoughts and express their immense excitement at finally getting to merge Earth's Mightiest Heroes with the Guardians of the Galaxy and of course, with the wonderful world of Spider-Man. We also catch a few fleeting glimpses at the set and a couple cast confirmations, namely Holland, Chris Hemsworth (Thor: Ragnarok), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), who will all reprise their roles »

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. »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in great shape as they press ahead deeper into Phase 3. This year, they will be releasing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok, all of which will help build momentum that leads us to Infinity War. The movie recently started filming and we know that virtually every hero in the McU is going to show up, but one of the main attractions is Thanos, who has been teased as a big bad since 2012. It looks like Marvel knows how important his presence is, because he is reportedly the main character in Avengers: Infinity War.
The news comes courtesy of Screen Rant, who visited the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 back in April. During their set visit, they spoke with producer Rob Keyes, who talked a bit about the fact that the McU movies typically focus on their heroes »
The Sundance Film Festival is officially over and the awards have already been handed out, both the official ones and our own Unconventional Awards, and out of the roughly thirty films I saw during my time in Park City, Utah, I’ve put together a list of the ten very best movies I had a chance to see. Many of them will be coming to theaters across the country later in the year, and a few of them may even be in the Oscar conversation a year from now.
10. The Big Sick
Silicon Valley’s Kumail Nanjiani made his triumphant debut as a leading man with this movie produced by Judd Apatow, directed by Michael Showalter (Hello, My Name is Doris) and co-written with wife Emily V. Gordon. Based on their own experiences in courting and how Emily (played by Zoe Kazan) being put into a medically-induced coma affected it, »

Welcome to the first, hopefully annual, Weekend Warrior Sundance Awards, where I go through the couple dozen movies I had a chance to see over the course of the past week and pick some of my favorite things.
I ended up seeing roughly thirty movies in total, only walking out of a couple (that won’t be mentioned), and overall, it was a generally decent Sundance, although only a few movies really stood out and will be remembered later in the year when we start talking about next year’s Oscars.
Oddly, I missed many of the movies that won actual awards at Sundance, so I’ve decided to give a few of my own.

Wind RiverDear Josh,After lulling us into a false sense of complacency with Friday’s clear skies, Utah apparently decided to give us a proper welcome with some real snow. So after a two-hour delay, crawling up the I-80 from Salt Lake City into Park City proper, past the occasional “Impeach” sign and hitchhikers on their way to the Women’s March, I was just grateful to have arrived (though a missed screening means word on Charlie McDowell’s intriguing sci-fi entry The Discovery will have to wait). Discoveries in general, though, are what Sundance is all about, positioned as it is at the beginning of the year, and featuring a host of relative unknowns right alongside more established filmmakers. When this year’s slate was first announced, however, I’ll cop to feeling a twinge of disappointment given the lack of major names, especially after 2016’s embarrassment of riches. »
Last week, it was confirmed that production started on Marvel's highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, which is currently filming in Atlanta. Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo shared the first set photo on Facebook, while Sean Gunn shared a photo of his own, as he arrived on the Atlanta set and revealed the movie's new logo, which was on a winter hat. Today we have another set photo that reveals a new cast member wearing that same Avengers: Infinity War hat, Pom Klementieff, which confirms that the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 star will return in Avengers: Infinity War as Mantis.
Pom Klementieff debuted the new photo on Instagram, which was preceded by another photo of an Avengers comic book which revealed the origins of her Mantis character. The actress will make her McU debut as Mantis in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which kicks off the summer movie season »
