Early box office projections for Thor: Ragnarok put the film on track to easily enjoy the Thor franchise’s best opening weekend yet. Marvel Studios is changing things up for the third installment in the Thor movie series. They’re moving away from the Shakespearean approach of the previous films and moving completely into the cosmic realms that Thor is meant to roam. To do this, director Taika Waititi joined the project to further differentiate Ragnarok‘s look and tone from the previous films… and he was also given the franchise’s best cast, too.
James Gunn and the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have collaborated with Baywatch legend David Hasselhoff to make a fun retro music video for original soundtrack song “Guardians Inferno.”
Deadpool 2 director David Leitch explains why Fox and Marvel were okay with Josh Brolin playing both Thanos and Cable. And when it was originally announced back in 2014 that Brolin would be playing the Mad Titan Thanos, the actor hadn’t just landed the role of another comic book movie villain, but the villain that Marvel Studios was planning to center its entire cinematic universe around. As such, many fans assumed that Brolin’s chances of playing any other iconic comic book movie villains or heroes — anytime soon at least — were completely off the table, as he was set to play Thanos until at least 2019 when The Avengers 4 is released.
Josh Brolin is heading back for more Thanos, with the actor saying he’s set to begin filming Avengers 4. Next year will be a big one for Brolin, who will not only reprise his role as Thanos in Marvel Studios/Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War but star alongside Ryan Reynolds in 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool 2 as Nathan Summers/Cable. The former recently wrapped its own filming, while the latter just got started in late June.
It looks like Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix has added a new face to its cast, and The Originals star Summer Fontana has nabbed herself the lucrative role of playing a young Jean Grey.
