Josh Brolin is Looking Forward to Taking on The Avengers

EGP Website Article Image 43

Everyone is greatly anticipating Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 which are going to be released in 2018 and 2019 respectively, but Marvel fans have been very happy with the various appearances by Thanos in Marvel films already. The character has shown up in The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy and the mid-credits scene in this year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Another person who is very excited is actor Josh Brolin (the voice of Thanos in the films) as the Infinity War films will be the biggest appearances of the character to date. However, he isn’t sure when we’ll be seeing the character next. “I don’t know which one I’m in. That’s a Kevin Feige question. I know the trajectory of what they’re doing, but I don’t know exactly which one I’m in.”

As far as whether or not Josh has a favourite Avenger, he said: “I don’t have a favourite because it’s me against all of them. I think the entirety is what I’m most looking forward to. Each and every one. I’m bringing the wrath.”

Thoughts on what Josh said? Are you excited for Avengers: Infinity War?

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice to Feature a Private Party Scene

temp-03714.dng

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is the first time Batman and Superman will have been seen on the big screen together, so naturally everyone wanted to be an extra on the film. One lucky person is Rudi Parker, an unpaid intern at the Michigan Film Office. Rudi revealed that the scene he took part in was a big party scene and had the following to say about the scene:

“I played the role of a caterer at a private party Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent attended. I worked 15 hours a day, but I was so thrilled to be on the set, and surrounded by so many talented people, that the long hours did not affect me. Not only did I get to stand by Henry Cavill while he played Superman’s alter ego Clark Kent, I quite literally ran into Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne. As we were resetting a shot, I was walking back to my mark. Affleck came rushing round the corner. I had nowhere to go because there were lights in the way. “Excuse me,” he said. I replied, “No, excuse me!” and quickly moved out of the way as we bumped shoulders. He was a little shorter than me.”

Note: This scene is likely the scene featured in an image of Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, who plays Diane Lane/Wonder Woman, that was released a while back.

The Walking Dead- Zombies on a Plane Special Planned

EGP Website Article Image 27

We’ve found Walkers in lots of interesting places in The Walking Dead and now it’s going to get even more interesting.

AMC are reportedly planning a 30-minute special standalone episode that will feature Walkers set on a plane in the early days of the outbreak. The special would follow a group of survivors fighting the undead on a plane. The solo special will air online in numerous chapters, but if you watch The Walking Dead while it’s airing a chapter of this special episode will feature during the commercials.

At least one of the survivors is stated to later be appearing in the second season of Fear The Walking Dead (the companion series that recently began airing).

Thoughts on this report? Are you excited at the prospect of this standalone episode?

New Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image Released Online

Warner Bros. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the most hotly anticipated movies coming out in 2016. The company has now released a new image from the film on its own Twitter account.

EGP Website Article Image 26

A similar version of this image was released by the Empire magazine a long time ago, but this is a wider version of that scene. The scene shows Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne standing in front of the Batman costume.

Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs.  And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Thoughts on the image? Are you excited for the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is officially released on March 25th, 2016.
