Avengers Line-Up Is Going To Change


When Marvel drops Avengers: Infinity War, it’s going to be a big deal. The two-part adventure will serve as a culmination of year’s worth of building in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and may feature as many as 60 or more superheroes. But before we get there, the line up of the Avengers may change in a very big way.


At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s clear that the roster of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is going to be different moving forward. Tony Stark and Hawkeye are out, Thor is on his own quest, Hulk is missing in action, and a new generation is stepping up. Talking at a Wizard World New Orleans (via ComicBook.com), Captain America: Civil War and Infinity War co-director Joe Russo called the process “cyclical,” and said that moving forward we’re going to see new characters, including those who have been secondary players up to this point, step forward and take over center stage. He added:


We’re focusing on that right now with Infinity War while we’re breaking into those movies, is which characters can we pull to the forefront who potentially haven’t had their own ‘A’ story arc to this point. I think you’ll see that the supporting Avengers are going to become primary Avengers.


It makes sense that this is how the MCU is going to develop. Up to this point the likes of Iron Man and Captain America have been at the forefront of the majority of the movies, and though they’ll both be front and center in Captain America: Civil War, after that the emphasis will be different. New characters like Black Panther, Doctor Strange, and Spider-Man (new to the MCU anyway) will all get their own solo movies. And as far as the Avengers go, at the end of Age of Ultron, it becomes clear that new additions like The Vision, Scarlet Witch, and Falcon will all take on more prominent roles in the group, and we know that Ant-Man will be showing up in the future as well.

As much as we all love Iron Man and Captain America, as time goes on, it’s getting harder and harder to give them new movies and make those stories feel fresh. We don’t want them to go away completely and by all accounts, they’re not going anywhere but a shift in focus will be a breath of fresh air. Part of why Guardians of the Galaxy was so welcome aside from the fact that it’s a total blast is that it is something so different from everything else in the MCU.

From Joe Russo’s words, it sounds like they’re trying to bring a new perspective to the Avengers team, and this is something that a lot of fans will appreciate. It’s nice to shake up the status quo from time to time.

‘Prison Break’ revival in spring


It’s no longer a secret that “Prison Break” is coming back to bring brand new episodes for season 5. It was announced back in August 2015 by Fox Studios. The question though is when it might start airing. According to a report by The Indian Express, the series revival, which will be a 10-episode season, is set to start shooting in the spring.The show will bring back main stars Wentworth Miller, who played as Michael Scofield, and Dominic Purcell, who played as Lincoln Burrows.




Sara-Tancredi-Prison-Break-tv-female-characters-15303822-265-400“There are a lot of moving parts to that conversation. But we are hopeful that we’ll be able to shoot something this spring. ‘Prison Break’ is taking its cue from Legends, which is the priority. So we’re aiming for spring,” Miller said.
The revival was announced back in August last year by Fox Studios.
Apart from the two lead stars, Sarah Wayne Callie is also expected to reprise her role as Sara Tancredi.


No premier date has been announced yet. However, if the shooting begins as per schedule, the show may go on air by the end of this year.

HBO gives season six of Game of Thrones and official premiere date



It’s the most pirated show for years now, and feels like one of the most anticipated shows season to season: it’s HBO’s adaptation of George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novel series called Game of Thrones. You know it, you love it, you’ve been obsessing about when you get to find out what happened to Sansa after she jumped over that very high wall. Fret no more, weary traveler of the Narrow Sea of the off-season, we can see the shore beyond! Game of Thrones season six will premiere Sunday, April 24.



jonsnow-590x330The finale of last season of Game of Thrones got the highest ratings of the entire series by that point with 8.11 million viewers, even though it aired opposite some NBA Finals game.

It’s unsurprising to those following Song of Ice and Fire fandom because that episode’s place in the series meta narrative made it exciting to all types of fans. For those who just watched the show, the fifth season’s tail end was riding on the Jon Snow high that was the finale battle sequence of the episode “Hardhome” where Jon barely saved some wildlings from the oncoming White Walkers, the Night’s King, and his army of Wights. For the people who have read fifth Martin book, A Dance With Dragons, the show was finally catching up with the novel’s narratives, which meant a major event was about to go down that has also been left unresolved in the book:Jon Snow’s apparent death.


Game-of-Thrones-303195Since the show went off the air at a high point in terms of exposure, book readers and show watchers were finally asking the same questions by the millions. HBO and A Song of Ice and Fire’s publishers hatched a plan to get Martin to finish the sixth book in time for it to be published before Game of Thrones premiered the new season. This was supposed to the let the author conclude what could very well be his final cliffhanger considering how fast the show is consuming the chronology of the novels.


game-thrones-season-5Sadly, Martin couldn’t finish in time. The author broke the news to the fans himself by blogging about it, but by then HBO had released a teaser for Game of Thrones’ upcoming season — a forty-one second teaser that includes the phrase “the past is already written, the ink is dry.” Now we’ll forever be wondering if the inclusion of that line was a subtle hint that the book was supposed to be done by the time the season came out, or if it was placed over video of Kit Harrington as an alive Jon Snow to continue to troll audiences with the question of his death and/or magical resurrection.

‘Sherlock: The Abominable Bride’ Recap


sherlock..It’s rare that a series gets to do an adaptation of its own adaptation, but that’s exactly what writers and creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss achieved with the Christmas Special episode Sherlock: The Abominable Bride. Subverting their own subversion, they catapulted Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman) back to the time of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s source material, in order to tell a one-off Victorian tale that was, prior to its premiere, shrouded in mystery.


And now, of course, it all makes sense (right?) and that reality is a little disappointing. “It’s all a dream” (or a drug-induced mind-palace-dwelling hallucination) is one of the most groan-worthy ways for any story to conclude, and even though Sherlock: The Abominable Bride ping-ponged back and forth through time, it felt like too neat of a cheat.

aaAt the start, The Abominable Bride was absolutely delightful as an alt-history, meta-infused version of the Sherlock we know and love. Back in the 1880s, with Watson as the storyteller and Sherlock Holmes sporting the iconic deerstalker, there were some fun twists on the Sherlock-Watson origin story from this iteration’s premiere (all the way to the mirrored, vintage title sequence). Mycroft (Gatiss), as some sort of suicidal balloon, was also a silly and fun changeup (and more like the original stories), as was the usually quiet and retiring Molly Hooper (Louise Brealey) turning up as a curt and confident crossdresser. Mrs. Hudson (Una Stubbs), though, remained her timeless self, and Lestrade (Rupert Graves) didn’t change much either.The show also gave a few moments to some other memorable cast from the past, like Anderson (Jonathan Aris) and Irene Adler (Lara Pulver, in a locket photo), though only in passing.

sherlock  All of this was much more fun than the actual case, the solution of which was telegraphed fairly early through Mary’s (Amanda Abbington) arrival at Sherlock’s flat. As a mysterious, cloaked figure dressed in black, she wasthe dark shadow of the murderous Bride dressed in white, and the episode’s heavy-handed themes of gender inequality set the stage for what exactly? A feminist death cult?

Though Mycroft and Sherlock both explain away the women’s killer intentions (and successes) as “progress,” one can’t help but be disappointed by the implications. Still, the real sin of The Abominable Bride was that it just wasn’t a particularly good case. And part of it may have been because of its truncated timeline, due to the show’s other ghost.


I will be the first to stand in praise of Andrew Scott’s weird and wonderful portrayal of Professor Moriarty, but the show has made him into something of an albatross. By killing him off (which perhaps happened too soon), the series was left without its principal villain and foil. And yet, Sherlock also won’t let him go. Moriarty is best used sparingly, be it as a mastermind or a spectre, and The Abominable Bride was much too indulgent with his presence. Knowing, ultimately, that he really is dead (that it’s not a trick on Sherlock) made his reappearance feel more like a trick on us, and one that won’t hold up well on rewatching. The idea that Moriarty still haunts Sherlock’s mind is an interesting one, and Watson being the one to “save” Sherlock was a nice touch, but the theatrics in between felt overwrought (with the time perhaps better spent on other things).

 watsonSherlock is at its best when it’s snappy, clever, and fun, which its first act achieved in spades (the sign language scene was a particular highlight, as were the parlor scenes). If the Christmas Special had just stuck to being a weird, unexplained alternative history of our cast, it would have been just fine. (As it was, the Victorian setting was an opportunity to pack in almost every Sherlock Holmes reference possible — a nice set of easter eggs for fans). Using it as a bridge between Seasons 3 and 4 didn’t work quite as well, though, even as tantalizing as some of the Moriarty twists first seemed.

Still, there are some interesting portends for fans to pick apart leading up to the new season: Moriarty is dead, but his influence lingers (and Sherlock knows how), and a glimpse into Mycroft’s notebook divulged a few points of interest into what might be coming next (a reference to Sherlock’s childhood dog Redbeard, as well as ”611174,” “Vernet,” and “Scarlet Roll”).

sherlock (1)

Back to Bride – Cumberbatch, Freeman, and the entire cast were all as charming and lovable as ever, of course, and managed to elevate scenes that were otherwise miscalculations. They were ultimately let down, though, by the Special’s time-jumping structure, and its endless fascination with Moriarty. As interesting as that relationship can be, it can’t hold a candle to the one between Sherlock and Watson. After Watson booted Moriarty off the cliff, he commented, “it was my turn.” As well it should be. Sherlock then dove off the cliff himself, and back into the present. There’s no more time to dwell on the past. The game is afoot.

Dilwale’ is for masses, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ for the class audience


It was a good Friday at the Bollywood box office with big budget films ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ raking in over Rs.20 crore and Rs.12 crore respectively on the opening day itself.

It was termed as a clash of the titans when Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Dilwale’ opposite Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’ were going to be released on the same day. Eventually, both the films seem to have found their own audience. Industry experts say though ‘Dilwale’ has opened to packed houses, the numbers will only get better for ‘Bajirao Mastani’.

On the other hand, there is Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who at least is trying to give us something new, even if it is a little reminiscent of Jodhaa Akbar.


There are two gorgeous women – Deepika Padukone is a dancing, fighting, superstar. Priyanka Chopra is both fun and funny as the cuckolded first wife. Then there’s Ranveer Singh, who has clearly worked hard on his character of Peshwa Bajirao. The accent is right, the physicality is perfect, the acting is restrained. The battles are designed as ballets, the costumes are brilliant, and the dances are scintillating. So what if the film is not historically accurate?

At least there are notions of a Hindu nationhood, there is talk of religion and love (rang ka koi dharma nahin, dharm ka koi rang nahin) and questions of inclusiveness (hamari ladai aapse hai, aapke dharam se nahin).

In this age of questions about the idea of India, it is good to hear a mainstream movie discussing how there is no distance between Durga and dargah. And not dialogues such as this gem: Woh fast hai to aap furious mat ho.

Want daughter to focus on education for now: Sridevi


 Want daughter to focus on education for now: Sridevi


Actress Sridevi has refuted rumours about her daughter Jhanvi Kapoor’s cinematic debut with Malayalam heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan, and added that she wants Jhanvi to focus on education for now.

The rumoured project was to be directed by K.V. Vijayendra Prasad, the writer behind Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

“She (Jhanvi) has just completed graduation. Her focus should be on education now. Contrary to reports, she hasn’t signed any film yet. She’s young and it’s too early for her to think about acting,” Sridevi told IANS.

She also added that destiny will decide the course of her daughter’s career.

“If it has to happen, she will enter films. I never planned to be an actress,” she said.

Sridevi is looking forward to the release of her comeback Tamil film Puli, which releases worldwide on October 1 in Hindi as well as Telugu.



This has to be the biggest news for all the Bahubali fans out there that have been desperately waiting for the release of Bahubali 2. The much kept secret behind the Why kattappa killed Bahubali  in the first part of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus epic drama Bahubali: The Beginning was leaked on the messaging app WhatsApp. The main plot of the second part of Bahubali movie Bahubali: The Conclusion has gone viral with the ardent fans sharing the apparent storyline of Prabhas, Tamannaah, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati and Sathyaraj starrer.

According to message doing circles on WhatsApp about the story of Bahubali 2, Kattappa (played by Sathyaraj) is loyal army chief of Mahishmati kingdom. Kattappa’s ancestors have sworn to obey the orders of the Mahishpati king. Not just Kattappa (Sathyaraj), but everyone born in this kingdom be it his ancestors or the generations that would follow are meant to serve the Mahishmati royals.

Once Bahubali becomes the emperor of the kingdom, he falls in love with certain Devasena(played by Anushka Shetty). The twist in the tale is that Bhallala Deva (played by Rana Daggubati) is also in love with Devasena. According to the instructions of Rajmata Shivagami (played by Ramya Krishnan), whoever marries Devasena will have to leave the empire and will be exiled.Bahubali agrees to this condition and decides to marry Devasena and leave Mahishmati kingdom.

Why Bhahubali

Once Bahubali departs the kingdom, it comes under the attack of son of Kalakeya King, which forces Bahubali to return Mahishmati and save his kingdom. This drastic change of scenario sparks fear in Bhallala Deva, who thinks Rajmata will give reins back to Bahubali. Then, Bhallala Deva orders Kattappa to kill Bahubali. Kattappa, who is under the oath of obeying the king’s order does what is told.

Well, this story line looks quite viable but it has to be seen if the makers actually present it when Bahubali: The Conclusion hits theaters in early 2016. In the modern period of Indian cinema, there have only been handful of movies that have got the audiences hooked up to it much after they have left the theaters. In the age where the success of movies is measured through the crore clubs it enters as opposed to longevity, as was it the times  gone by, Bahubali has managed to strike the right chords of its audiences and weaved magic with its story and visual effects.
