Original “Avengers” Get Matching Tattoos

How did five of the original big screen Avengers mark the release of Avengers: Infinity War? By getting matching tattoos of the superhero team’s logo from New York-based inker, Josh Lord, and by jointly giving Lord a rather less steady-handed version of that tat.

“Five of the original six Avengers got a tattoo,” Robert Downey Jr. exclusively tells EW. “And the sixth was the tattoo artist, who gave it to five of us, the one who opted out being Mark Ruffalo. It was (Scarlett) Johansson’s idea, and she and (Chris) Evans did it in New York. Then, their New York guy, Josh Lord, who is amazing, flew out to LA, he did me, did (Jeremy) Renner, and then we just bullied (Chris) Hemsworth into doing it, and he got it. And each one of us drew a line on the artist with his own tattoo gun and it was a total massacre. Each of us contributed to giving the tattoo artist the sixth tattoo that he designed for us. By the way, he’s got another one on him that Scarlett did, which is beautiful, which is crazy, because the line she drew on him, which was just supposed to be a straight line, looked like a lightning bolt. It was a mess.”

“Avengers: Infinity War” Reaches $1 Billion Mark

After smashing records for the biggest domestic and global openings in box office history last weekend, Avengers: Infinity War has now become the fastest movie to reach $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

Infinity War has hit the magical number just 11 days after it began its international roll out, beating the previous record of 12 days set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the end of 2015.

The Marvel Studios blockbuster is expected to comfortably retain top spot at the box office this weekend, and will presumably surpass The Avengers’ $1.52 billion by next weekend to become Marvel’s biggest ever release.

How far it can go remains to be seen, but the movie has its Chinese opening to come on Friday, May 11th, and a strong performance in that market will likely propel it to the $2 billion mark – a milestone which has only ever been achieved by Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Tessa Thompson Joins “Men In Black” Spinoff

Following the success of Thor: Ragnarok, Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth are looking to reteam on another big movie.

Thompson is in talks to join Hemsworth in Sony’s Men in Black spinoff, sources tell Variety. F. Gary Gray, who previously helmed Straight Outta Compton and The Fate of the Furious, is on board to direct.

The studio fast-tracked the project earlier this fall, setting Matt Holloway and Art Marcum to pen the script and dating a May 17, 2019, release.

The original movie followed Smith and Jones, who played agents of a secret organization, known as the Men in Black, and protected Earth from intergalactic bad guys. The first film was huge hit and produced two more sequels. (Source)

“Avengers: Infinity War” Release Date Shift

You won’t have to wait as long to see Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War in theaters in North America.

Marvel announced on Twitter the third Avengers film will now be released on April 27 as opposed to its original planned May 4 release date. Marvel Studios made the announcement via a Twitter exchange with Iron Man star Robert Downey, Jr.

Marvel Studios first tweeted out about the film debuting on May 4, when Downey, Jr. chimed in asking to see it earlier. Marvel Studios accommodated him — and the many fans hoping to see the film as soon as possible. Of course, this was naturally a planned announcement transformed into a clever marketing stunt that used one of the stars of the MCU as a voice for the people wanting to watch Infinity War early.

This lines the North American release of the film up with its planned international debut. That new release date is a week after the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson-starring Rampage adaptation. It also further separates Infinity War’s release from other big May tentpole films, which include Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story. (Source)

Chris Is In Negotiations to Star in “Men in Black” Spinoff

Chris Hemsworth is in early negotiations to star in Sony’s self-styled spinoff of the sci-fi action-comedy franchise Men in Black.

F. Gary Gray, who directed last year’s Fate of the Furious, is due to helm the movie, which has a script by Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The pic is slated for release on June 14, 2019.

Akin to how Jurassic World revived the Jurassic Park film series, Sony’s reboot is to feature new characters rather than Agents K and J, portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, respectively, and build on the contemporary sci-fi world in which they operated.

Sources say that the studio is hoping to round out a diverse ensemble cast and may be potentially eyeing the leads to be white male, a female of color and an older man. The story will be a global adventure.

Smith and Jones powered the first Men in Black film to $589 million at the global box office in 1997 and subsequently starred in two sequels — one in 2002 and one a decade later in 2012. The entire franchise has made more than $1.5 billion worldwide.

Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are back as producers, while Steven Spielberg is returning as executive producer. (Source)

Chris and Liam Hemsworth Pass on “The Simpsons”

A producer for The Simpsons has revealed brothers Liam and Chris Hemsworth, plus Hugh Jackman, all turned down guest-starring roles on the sitcom. Al Jean recently revealed that the FOX animated series had approached the three Australian actors to voice a character for the series – but they all declined.

Indeed, they had already written a part for the Hemsworth brothers, making it more of a kick in the teeth.

“We tried to get the Hemsworth brothers but they passed,” he told News Corp. “We wrote a part for them, but they said no.”

“We also asked Hugh Jackman and he passed as well, so we tried.”
