Ask ten different X-Men fans who their favourite character is, and you’ll get ten different answers. Too many characters are shoved in (possibly to appeal to as many fans as possible) without proper development, good reason, or memorable moments. Deadpool was a film that surprisingly, lived up to its hype.
Basically, if you loved Deadpool, it's safe to say that you'll love Deadpool 2 – that's the general feeling among critics for the R-rated festival of meta wisecracks and free-flowing claret.
For a film that’s been set up by a whopping 18 preceding films, “Avengers: Infinity War” does a magnificent job of pulling together all the previous setups into one unified whole. The nineteenth entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – with a currently untitled sequel coming to cinemas next year – sees the various superheroes struggling to prevent a powerful alien villain, Thanos, from acquiring the power to commit universal genocide. The film’s sprawling cast necessitates that they be split into smaller, more manageable groups, so as to have any sort of meaningful interaction between characters.
Now that the Civil War is over, the countdown is on to the Infinity War. And while the Avengers may be disassembled at the moment, their coming nemesis is readying for the fight. Yes, Thanos is in reherasals for his big Marvel Cinematic Universe moment.
Josh Brolin, who plays Thanos is the MCU films, has praised the directors of the upcoming ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ films. The actor, who is currently promoting the home entertainment release of the Coen brothers’ ‘Hail, Caesar!’, told Yahoo he saw parallels between the critically acclaimed directing duo and the Russo brothers, who are helming both installments of ‘Infinity War’.
George Clooney has peeled back from the pranking lately. Hail, Caesar! marks the second consecutive film (after Tomorrowland) where the actor’s co-stars have reported a surprisingly lack of shenanigans from the notorious prankster. Josh Brolin recalled with tempered glee how it was he who did the pranking on Caesar!, the new 1950 showbiz comedy from the Coen brothers, and implored us to ask Clooney for all the juicy details.
