Josh Brolin Wearing The Goonies Costume

Today, Josh Brolin is an Oscar-nominated actor who is playing, not one, but two major comic book characters in the upcoming sequels Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War. But way back in 1985, Josh Brolin was just a nobody getting his big break as Brandon “Brand” Walsh in the classic adventure movie The Goonies. And he recently paid tribute to his early career in a surprising way.

Josh Brolin took to Instagram a couple days ago with a picture of him decked out in costume for a 1980s party being thrown for his friend, and his wardrobe will look familiar to anyone who remembers his role from the aforementioned directed by Richard Donner and produced by Steven Spielberg.

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

Despite being built up as the greatest threat the Marvel universe has ever faced, Thanos has spent the past five years sitting on his space throne, occasionally popping up to get out-smarted by Ronan the Accuser and make vague threats in post-credits sequences. That is looking to change in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, which will put the big purple menace front-and-center as attempts to do…something. Something evil, for sure. But something.

While comic book readers already have an inkling of what that something could be, co-screenwriter Stephen McFeely has offered up the first hard evidence of what to expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest Big Bad.

sicario sequel

Filming wraps on the Sicario sequel, titled Soldado, in a couple of days in Mexico City. Just the other day, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) gave an update on the project, saying, “If Sicario is a film about the militarization of police and that blending over, this is removing the policing aspect from it.” Soldado deals heavily with immigration, so Sheridan and producer Basil Iwanyk (John Wick: Chapter Two) believe the sequel is relevant in more than a few ways. Iwanyk is also confident the sequel is bigger, has more “bells and whistles,” and digs deeper into the characters. Below, learn more about the Sicario sequel. Read More »

Kate Macer (Blunt) has an arc which is completed by the end of the film, but some people were still understandably disappointed we won’t see this world any longer through her eyes. With director Stefano Sollima‘s sequel, writer Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) wants to ask: Without a chaperone, how bad do Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) and Matt (Josh Brolin) get?

Below, the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter discusses the Sicario sequel.

avengers infinity war score

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.
