Russos urge you not spoil Avengers : Endgame!

Footage from the film leaked a couple of days ago

“Avengers : Endgame” directors Joe and Anthony Russo released a joint statement today urging film fans not to spoil the plot of the upcoming film for others.

The statement was released, not at all coincidentally, hot on the heels of leaked footage  – the vision and images of which are pinging through social media – hitting the web.  Images and GIFs generated from that video are now doing the rounds, and Reddit threads have been devoted to discussions of the plot and character reveals seen in the leak.

Not opening until April 26, the Marvel Studios blockbuster is the victim of a scumbag pirate – the studio hasn’t confirmed who or where he was when he managed to get the footage – who has uploaded up to five-minutes from the film’s conclusion to the web.  The footage reportedly includes key moments that occur near the end of the film – moments so spoilery, it’s prompting many to quit social media until they see the film.

“When you see Endgame in the coming weeks, please don’t spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn’t want it spoiled for you,” the Russos said in the statement.

In the letter, the Russos wrote: “Please know that the two of us, along with everyone involved in Endgame, have worked tirelessly for the last three years with the sole intention of delivering a surprising and emotionally powrful conclusion to the Inifinity Saga. Because so many of you have invested your time, your hearts, and your souls into these stories, we’re once again asking for your help.”

Journalists have not been allowed to screen “Avengers : Endgame” prior to their interviews with the cast, and won’t get to see the film until late next week.

Ben Affleck to direct and star in Ghost Army

Batman star to go back to WWII

Ben Affleck is headed back to WWII, with the star set to direct and star in “Ghost Army” for Universal Pictures.

The film is based on the Rick Beyer & Elizabeth Sayles book titled “The Ghost Army of World War II: How One Top-Secret Unit Deceived the Enemy with Inflatable Tanks, Sound Effects, and Other Audacious Fakery”. It’s safe to say that “Ghost Army” is a more succinct title. Nic Pizzolato wrote the script, which is also based on the Netflix doco “Ghost Army”.

Per the Deadline report, “Ghost Army” tells the story of a secret force that relied on sleight of hand and illusion to trick the Nazis in 1944. A group of soldiers including future luminaries Bill Blass, Ellsworth Kelly, Arthur Singer, Victor Dowd, Art Kane and Jack Masey landed in France to conduct a secret mission. Armed with truckloads of inflatable tanks and a massive collection of sound-effects records, they created the illusion of troop strength on European battlefields to trick the Germans into deploying forces in the wrong places.

The secret force of 1,100 men of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops — the Ghost Army — dragged duffel bags of drawings and paintings through France and other European cities to stage phony convoys, phantom divisions and make-believe headquarters to fool the enemy about the strength and location of American units. The campaign is credited with saving thousands of American lives.

Affleck will also produce under his banner Pearl Street Films alongside Andrew Lazar and his Mad Chance Productions banner. Pearl Street Films’ Madison Ainley will be executive producer.

While he didn’t straight-up say he was onboard, Vin Diesel took to his socials recently to tease a possible role in James Cameron’s “Avatar” sequels. The actor, who voices Groot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, walked the red carpet at the “Avengers : Endgame” on Monday where he confirmed for Entertainment Tonight that he is indeed involved. And seems Diesel’s fans can thank his “Guardians” co-star for making it happen.

“Probably my favorite in the whole cast [and] the closest in my family is Zoe Saldana,” Diesel shared. “Hence Avatar. Hence why I’m doing Avatar, or one of the reasons.”

Cameron is working on four sequels to “Avatar” but it’s not known whether Diesel appears in just one of the films or all of them.

The famed filmmaker hasn’t revealed a lot about the plot of the sequels, though has confirmed that the key cast do head into the deep in the next films.

“There’s a tremendous amount of water work across Avatar 2 and 3,” Cameron told Collider. “It’s ongoing into 4 and 5, but the emphasis is on 2 and 3.”

Each film is also a standalone movie – so you can skip on “Avatar 2” and yet still enjoy “Avatar 3”.

“Each movie is a standalone movie that we would want to go see,” producer Jon Landau said. “You don’t need to have seen the first Avatar to see Avatar 2. It sits there and we’re gonna take people on a visual and an emotional journey that comes to its own conclusion.”

Diesel joins a cast that includes Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Sam Worthington, Brendan Cowell, Kate Winslet, Edie Falco, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Stephen Lang, Matt Gerald, Michelle Yeoh, Cliff Curtis and Giovanni Ribisi.

“Avatar 2” is due for release December 18, 2020.
