Treat with the usual amount of scepticism, but Christopher M. of Omega Underground reports Samuel L. Jackson will “co-star” with Brie Larson in Captain Marvel, reprising his role as Nick Fury.

Avengers: Infinity War
Speaking with the Australian news outlet News.com.au, Robert Downey, Jr revealed he plans to retire from playing Iron Man “before it’s embarrassing”.
Everyone says to me it’s like a glove that fits so well. I have to start over every time but I am starting over with a pretty solid base. I just never want to blow it for the last six or seven [movies] I have done by dropping the ball because I decided to go do it one more time. I just want to hang up my jersey before it’s embarrassing.
In related news, here’s a set video of Doctor Strange casting various spells to be added in post.

I have it down to 181 songs. That list could get longer. https://t.co/byRjdfSa07

A Reddit user has posted a description of the trailer to the infamous DCEU Leaks subcommunity. Take it with a grain of salt, though, because the write-up makes it sound like every movie trailer ever made.
It was around 1 min 30 secs long. … It opens with some mellow piano music, showing Amnesty Bay with a voiceover from Momoa. The music then turns cinematic, Zimmer style I would say. We get various shots of the characters, Mera, Murk etc etc. The teaser ended with a really really cool scene of Arthur standing on a rock type thing and activates his trident and creates a massive wave.
These recent set pics depict Wade Wilson having a Blade Runner moment.

It’s a really cool season, and yes, a lot of people actually do die. It’s really about fear and people coming together in different camps, and it’s about intolerance. It’s about a lot of things that are pretty current right now. I think it’s going to be good.
