Avengers: In­fin­ity War

Hot Press - - Reviews -

Good news for those fear­ing that Avengers: In­fin­ity War and the up­com­ing se­quel might mean the end of some of their favourite char­ac­ters – or those who just want to see more of their beloved su­per­heroes. Ru­mours are float­ing around that Dis­ney is look­ing to bol­ster its stream­ing ser­vice with lim­ited series fea­tur­ing char­ac­ters from the Marvel Cin­e­matic Uni­verse. Un­like the Net­flix shows, which go for street-level ac­tion with af­ford­able names and es­chew per­form­ers from the movies, the aim for these new series would be to have stars like Tom Hid­dle­ston and El­iz­a­beth Olsen starring, and higher bud­gets to repli­cate the vis­ual stan­dards of the films. Noth­ing’s con­firmed yet, but fin­gers crossed!

WaterTower Mu­sic has an­nounced that an Ir­ish star will be ap­pear­ing on the sound­track to Small­foot, the new an­i­mated film about a Sasquatch who has to go on an epic quest to prove to his vil­lage that hu­mans ex­ist. The sound­track fea­tures the Niall Ho­ran song ‘Fi­nally Free’ play­ing over the end cred­its, plus orig­i­nal new songs writ­ten by Wayne Kirkpatrick and Small­foot di­rec­tor Karey Kirkpatrick. Sev­eral are also per­formed by mem­bers of the film’s all-star cast, in­clud­ing Zen­daya, Com­mon, Chan­ning Ta­tum and James Cor­den.

Marvel have dropped the first trailer for Cap­tain Marvel, and it opens with her fall­ing onto a Block­buster Video store, so I guess the movie re­ally does take place in the ’90s! The trailer shows Brie Lar­son as the quasi­amne­siac Cap­tain try­ing to piece to­gether mem­o­ries of her­self as a girl, a pi­lot and a su­per­hero, as aliens like an evil-eyed Jude Law em­bark on some ne­far­i­ous schemes. Sa­muel L. Jack­son ap­pears as a young Nick Fury, and Clark Gregg also ap­pears as fan favourite Phil Coul­son. It’s due for re­lease in March 2019, and we can’t wait.
