Heroes Share A Kiss In Avengers: Infinity War Set Video

5 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Avengers: Infinity War is currently shooting in various locations around the world, but we’ve seen very little in the way of set photos thus far. That’s because Marvel Studios is understandably being very careful to ensure that no details they don’t want to be spoiled wind up online, especially when so much of the movie is still a complete mystery.

That being said, we have seen a bit from the production in recent weeks and today, another intriguing new set video has surfaced. Seen above, it shows us a kiss between Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and the Vision (Paul Bettany), which sheds some light on what’s to come for both characters in Joe and Anthony Russo’s upcoming blockbuster.

While we’ve previously seen the two characters sharing an embrace, fans speculated that the Vision looked human because Thanos’ minions had somehow removed the Infinity Stone from his head. »

Infinity War and Avengers 4 Are Being Shot Separately

21 April 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Avengers: Infinity War was announced back in 2014, it was revealed as a "Part 1" and a "Part 2" that would be two movies connecting to tell a larger tale. Exactly like the final installments of The Hunger Games and Harry Potter franchises. That changed last year when it was announced that Avengers 4 is going to get a different title and is not just the second part of Avengers: Infinity War. Still, the two movies were supposed to be shooting together at the same time, with production overlapping. Now that has changed, and it has been confirmed that Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 are shooting separately.

While speaking with Collider, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that the next two Avengers movies are no longer shooting at the same time, which was originally the plan. But logistically, that had to change because things became too complicated. Instead, the movies will be shooting »

Avengers: Infinity War Set Video Continues To Spotlight Scarlet Witch And Vision’s Romance

21 April 2017 8:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As one of, if not the biggest comic book movies currently in production, Marvel is finding it awfully difficult to keep a lid on Avengers: Infinity War.

Joe and Anthony Russo’s star-studded event film is currently lensing in Edinburgh, and ever since the blockbuster set up shop in the Scottish capital, the Internet has been awash with set photos depicting Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) in action. Going one step further, ComicBook has spotted a set video featuring both Avengers dressed in civvies, and it looks like Infinity War will take their romance to a whole new level – quite literally, as Paul Bettany’s synthetic is seen here without his striking red skin. Could it be that Vision has had the Mind Stone taken away, and is therefore reduced to a regular old robot? Time will tell.

Twitter Is Loving This Imaginary Scam Involving Lupita Nyong'o and Rihanna

21 April 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Three years ago at Miu Miu's 2014 Paris Fashion Week show, greatness was born. Yes, the parade of pastels that hit the runway was to die for, but I'm not talking about the clothes; I'm talking about the two icons sitting in the front row: Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o. At the time, photos of the two sandwiched between Margot Robbie and Elizabeth Olsen immediately inspired everyone to imagine all of the kinds of #goals a friendship between the two would inspire (hint: Many). Luckily Twitter user blaquepink recently resurfaced the image with the caption "A picture for the history books," and people found themselves obsessing over Lupita and Rihanna (Lupanna? Rihita?) all over again. Of all the reactions to the photo, the best was @1800Sadgal's, who made the observation that "Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans, »

Thor: Ragnarok Director Reveals Weird Reason Grandmaster Isn't Blue

20 April 2017 1:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans have certainly responded to the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer, which set a new Disney record with 136 million views in the first 24 hours. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are back as the Asgardian brothers Thor and Loki, but this new adventure introduces a number of new characters, including Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster. A month before the trailer debuted, fans got their first look at The Grandmaster, who has a much different look in the movie than he does in the comics, where his skin is entirely blue. Director Taika Waititi revealed that there is a perfectly good explanation for this, which is also quite hilarious.

Earlier this week, a number of journalists were invited to the Marvel facility in Burbank for a special event, and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi was on hand to discuss his Marvel Phase Three adventure, which arrives in theaters November 3. IGN spoke with Taika Waititi during the event, »

Infinity War Set Photos Tease Big Changes for Vision and Scarlet Witch

20 April 2017 9:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, production on Avengers: Infinity War had shifted to Edinburgh, Scotland, with new set photos revealing Paul Bettany's Vision. He was seen walking down a Scottish street late at night. Another video surfaced just a day later, which showed Vision using his special powers to fly away after a number of attackers from The Black Order had knocked him to the ground. No further details were given. Today, we have even more set photos, and they uncover a few rather huge Spoilers for Vision and another popular character from the Avengers movies. If you're trying to avoid huge spoilers for Infinity War, then you'll want to stop reading right now.

Shortly after the Vision set photos emerged, we learned that Elizabeth Olsen had arrived in Scotland to film scenes in the Old Town area of Edinburgh, along with a number Marvel stars such as Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, »

Warning: There Are Spoilers In This Article

We’ve seen a few set photos from Avengers: Infinity War [see here and here], but there hasn’t been anything major. However some new photos via E! News show a major plot point of the movie involving Vision and Scarlet Witch.

Word on the street is this is a possible dream sequence, after all Vision is human in the photos and doesn’t have anything on him that could CGI’d in post. The other possibility is that once Thanos removes the Mind Gem from Vision, the character will »

Avengers: Infinity War Set Photos Spoil Scarlet Witch And Vision Scenes

19 April 2017 3:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War continues production in Edinburgh, Scotland, this latest batch of images from the set are by far the most spoiler-filled yet – so fair warning before reading any further.

Earlier set snaps have already confirmed that at some point during the movie, Thanos’ minions (most likely members of his lethal Black Order) will track down the Infinity Stone that’s set in the middle of the Vision’s (Paul Bettany) forehead to Earth, where the powerful android will attempt to fend off his attackers with the help of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Well, it looks like the aliens are successful in retrieving the stone, and the results are something nobody will have expected.

19 April 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This was bound to happen eventually. Avengers: Infinity War doesn't hit theaters until May 4, 2018, but E! News has fans' first look at Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) sharing a tender moment in the adventure movie. The two actors were snapped filming on set in Edinburgh, Scotland, Tuesday. Bettany, 45, and Olsen, 28, filmed the same scene "eight or nine times," according to an eyewitness. It began with Vision opening the window curtains using his special abilities. Moments later, Scarlet Witch appeared by his side "and they get very close and finally kissed."

The official lineup for the 70th Cannes Film Festival, which will run from May 18–28, was announced April 13. While a few more screenings will undoubtably be added as we creep nearer to the festival, the selections announced feature a lot worth getting excited over — including, for the first time, two television shows (Twin Peaks and Top of the Lake) and a virtual reality film (Carne y Arena). Also, considering that The Killing of a Sacred Deer and The Beguiled are both in the main competition, there is, assuming equal probability, an 11.1% chance that a film starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell will take home the top prize. Considering

This year, the festival jury will be headed by acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, with French actress Sandrine Kiberlain presiding over the Camera d’Or jury and Romanian »

The Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2017: A Rundown

13 April 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The 2017 Cannes official selection is a mix of brainy competition auteurs, red-carpet star power, and the rarest breed — a handful of players who could return to North America as Oscar contenders.

Nicole Kidman will be stuffing her trunks with evening gowns, as she will need to walk the Palais steps at least four times: twice with Colin Farrell, for Cannes favorite Sofia Coppola‘s Civil War potboiler “The Beguiled” (Focus Features) and Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” (A24), both in Competition, and again for John Cameron Mitchell‘s midnighter “How to Talk with Girls at Parties” (A24) and a preview of Jane Campion‘s returning Sundance Channel series, “Top of the Lake: China Girl.” How the three films play in Cannes will determine if the Oscar perennial returns for another go-round.

Avengers: Infinity War Set Video Sees Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch In Action

10 April 2017 8:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Filming continues this week in Scotland on Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, and we now have an exciting new video from the set to share with you. We recently saw some images of Elizabeth Olsen and her stunt double rehearsing an explosive action scene on the cobbled streets of Edinburgh, but here we get a much better look at what the sequence will entail.

The footage features Olsen in character as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch locked in combat with an actor in a motion-capture suit, and we might just have a very good idea of which fearsome CG character he’s standing in for. Rumor has it that Thanos will be sending out members of The Black Order, Aka The Cull Obsidian, to round up the remaining Infinity Stones, and there’s a decent chance this is one of them engaging Wanda in battle. In fact, considering the fact that »
