Former Goonie and star of Jonah Hex, Josh Brolin has all but been confirmed as the voice of penultimate Avenger's villain Thanos. Audiences briefly saw Thanos at the end of The Avengers, but you'll get a better look at him in August's Guardians of the Galaxy.
Thanos, will race the Avengers and the Guardians for control over the Five Infinity Gems which make the wielder omnipotent. So far, the only Infinity Gems we know about are the Tesseract from Avengers 1, and The Aether from Thor 2.
Get ready for at least three more MacGuffins.
We've known for a while that Fox has been courting Channing Tatum to star as Gambit in their ever-growing X-Men franchise, and now it's confirmed. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner had this to say at Monday Night's Days of Future Past premiere:
And now, the Hollywood Reporter is reporting that audiences ill first see the Magic Mike star flinging explosive cards, in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. Soon after, audiences will be treated to a Gambit stand-alone film which is still in the very early stages of development.
Personally I feel that seeing the iconic 90's X-Man rubbing elbows with young Magneto and Professor X will be a little weird, but he's the type of character that will play both sides in the mutant debate. Where do you think Gambit will fit in?
Actor, Reg E. Cathey from The Wire and House of Cards has been cast as mentor figure Dr. Franklin Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. The internet has been in a tizzy since Fox cast sibling Johnny and Sue Storm interracially (Michael B Jordan and Kate Mara respectively).
Since Dr. Franklin is their father, we can now safely assume that Sue is the adopted child.
If you were worried about Matt Smith's career after leaving Doctor Who, you can stop now. The 11th Doctor was just officially announced to star in a yet-to-be-named role in the next three Terminator movies.
The movie already has Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor, and an appearance by Arnold himself. With the good guys pretty much set, we wonder if Smith will try his hand at villainy?
What do you think of the news?
Stage actor Ray Harris has officially been announced to play Victor Stone (Cyborg) in 2016's much anticipated Batman vs Superman. The role is reported to be small, but it paves the way for future DC Universe movies.
What do you think of the casting choice? Is hiring an unknown a good choice? Who would you like to see play Cyborg?
Last week, it was all but confirmed that Michael B. Jordan would be joining the cast for The Fantastic Four reboot as The Human Torch. Now, he's been talking to Zack Snyder, director of Man of Steel, to cross the comic divide and join the DC universe as a 'recurring character' beginning with 2016's Man of Steel 2/Batman vs Superman.
This casting choice is a rumor at best, but the knowledge that Snyder is casting yet another recurring role has perked up some ears, and speculation is flying. Since Jordan is black, most are assuming that he'd be in talks for John Stewart's turn as Green Lantern, or the mechanized hero Cyborg. But this is the modern era, where actors of color are beginning to up for any superhero role, so younger roles, like Robin or The Flash could fit the bill as well. I guess we'll just have to wait until 2016.
