So far most of our information, at least in regards to the latter, comes from the comics -- Thanos is a member of The Eternals, a group of god-like beings with immense power, far beyond that of humans. Thanos is referred to as the "Mad Titan" in the comics for attempting to demolish the entire human race with his Infinity Gauntlet, capable of manipulating, time, space, reality and even the human soul.
There's also talk that this entity will appear in the upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' due to an analysis of the comic book plot on which the film is based. All that's left, really, is a high-profile actor to take on this role.
Needless to say, after Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler decided to leave the 'American Idol' judges' table, the show tumbled into chaos. With less than two weeks until open auditions are held in New York City, Mariah Carey is the only name officially attached to the panel and Randy Jackson has stepped down to a mentoring role. All the while reports continue to speculate on who will be joining the team, but with nothing made official yet, there's still a small bit of wiggle room.
It was just the other week that the anti-Obama documentary '2016: Obama's America' made the unexpected jump from relatively unknown flick to box office domination, grossing around $10.6 million since it's theatrical release. Boding well for Mitt Romney supporters, the film, both co-produced and co-directed by former Ronald Reagan policy adviser Dinesh D'Souza, first opened in one single Houston, Texas theater on July 13, and by the coming weekend will have expanded to around 1,800. But what does this all mean for the coming election in November? Will it really have a large affect on the polls?
If you're like us, then your sense of humor is very much like a parrot -- you hear something funny or memorable on the big screen and you repeat that movie quote in every situation possible until the next awesome catchphrase comes about. This summer, however, was filled with too many to count.
It's never overkill to reiterate for the thousandth time that Christopher Nolan will not be directing the 'Justice League' movie. No matter how many rumors circulate the Webosphere or how many times fans cry out for a savior to come a save this project, it doesn't change the fact he threw in the towel after 'The Dark Knight Rises.' So, that means there's an opening.
Though 'The Expendables 3' hasn't been given the official go ahead and 'The Expendables 2' hasn't even premiered in theaters yet, there's still pretty loud chatter about a third installment to the series. There are even some new names being tossed around for hypothetical parts.
Summer 2012 has been a glorious season for movies. The long-awaited 'Avengers' hit theaters followed a couple months later with the premiere of 'The Dark Knight Rises.' And while these two blockbusters were waging box office battles against each other and all the other big screen competitors, Comic-Con 2012 panels in San Diego were unveiling new info on all your favorite movies and shows. But out of everything that happened, which movies, TV shows and news had the biggest impact on your Summer 2012? ScreenCrush wants to know.
'The Dark Knight Rises' theater shooting in Colorado has taken an emotional toll on the country, and none seem more sympathetic to the victims and their families than Warner Bros. Not only have director Christopher Nolan and the 'Dark Knight' cast expressed their condolences, but the production company has taken further steps in consideration of this tragic event at the expense of its upcoming flick 'Gangster Squad.'
It's safe to say that we pretty much all loved Peter Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings' movie trilogy, which grossed about $3 billion in worldwide sales during their 2001-2003 releases. Now it looks like Warner Bros. is seeking to achieve the same results with the upcoming 'Hobbit' movie adaptation -- or should we say, adaptations -- as it's looking to become a movie trilogy.
