Josh Brolin, who is playing Thanos in the McU film continuity, has said that he will be doing a lot of filming as Thanos in 2016 and 2017. What projects will Brolin be working on, aside from Avengers: Infinity War?

Both the 2014 Game Awards on Friday night and yesterday's all-day Playstation Experience event saw some major revelations, world premiere trailers and fresh gameplay footage on offer for quite a few of the biggest and most interesting games of next year. In this group I look at some of the previously announced and biggest PlayStation 4 exclusives for next year:
No Man's Sky
This procedurally-generated space exploration tale continues to astonish. The Game Awards trailer is a two-and-a-half minute piece in which you jump from one planet to another, and step through a portal of some sort to an alternate version of that second planet. The Ps Experience trailer shows off the sheer scale of the game by taking us from one inhabited star system to an unexplored one far across the stars, in the process giving you an idea of just how many star systems you can explore.

TNT has decided to keep Sean Bean alive. Well, at least for one more season. The cable network has renewed the actor’s freshman drama Legends for a second season, despite the show receiving very mixed reviews from critics. For those who don’t know, Legends centers on Bean’s Martin Odum, an elite undercover operative “who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. But his own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn’t who he thinks he is.” In addition to Bean, the series stars Ali Larter (Heroes) as Crystal McGuire, Tina Majorino (Grey’s Anatomy) as Maggie Harris, Amber Valletta (Revenge) as Martin’s wife Sonya, Mason Cook (The Goldbergs) as Martin’s son Aiden, Steve Harris (Justified) as Nelson Gates, and Morris Chestnut (ABC’s V reboot) as Tony Rice.

Hydra frames Shield by assassinating a large number of Un dignitaries, thus threatening to bring the rest of the World down upon our Heroes. Meanwhile Ward continues to try and get under Skye’s skin, but has his time run out?
Wow, the tension and action doesn’t seem to be slowing (though the humor balances it out well) as Agents of Shield continues with it’s impressive run of episodes. And this instalment had Hydra finally taking action against their rivals…well, framing Shield with an attack against the Un (killing several dignitaries with a weapons that mimicked the Obelisk’s power, looks like the Doctor quickly weaponised it) and in front of General Talbot who I am surprised did not immediately suspect them (considering how gung-ho he has been toward them so far this season).
Directed by Simon West (The Expendables 2) and scripted by William Goldman from his own novel, Wild Card also stars Sofía Vergara (Modern Family), Stanley Tucci (Transformers: Age of Extinction), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), Michael Angarano (The Knick) and Anne Heche (Save Me).

"Doubles" is a captivating short film that tells a very interesting story of our universe colliding and merging with an alternate universe. Over time a duplicate version of every person and inanimate object on earth start to appear. During this complete madness, a hopeless romantic finds himself in a position to win the heart of his dream girl's double.
The movie was written and directed by Jacob Motz, and it’s a great concept that he brilliantly brought to life. The short has some witty dialogue with some very amusing moments that I’m sure a lot of you will enjoy. On top of that, the performances are great. I’m sure some of you will recognize Brea Grant from the TV show Heroes.
