Anthony and Joe Russo, the directors behind the Marvel films "Captain America: The Winter Solider" (2014) and the upcoming "Captain America: Civil War" (2016), are backpedalling on a previous comment they made where they said that another Marvel film they're currently working on, "Avengers: Infinity War," will feature 67 characters.
In an interview with Collider, the Russos said, "We were being figurative when we said [67 characters] and people took it as literal but there's a lot of characters."
"'Infinity War' is meant to be the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe up to that point," the directors said. "It's very ambitious in its scope, it wants to take everything that you've seen before and coalesce into some kinda of climactic ending." more >>

"Attack on Titan" season 2 may bring new titans when it is released next month, but there will also be returning titans such as the Armoured Titan and Colossal Titan.
Rumor has it that "Attack on Titan" season 2 will come out in February, but anime director Tetsuro Araki still has not confirmed the release date of the sequel. Some fans may not understand why the manga adaptation has taken years to release a second season, but the gap exists for a good reason, according to Crossmap.
There is a standing agreement between Araki and "Attack on Titan" manga writer Hajime Isayama to always let the manga adaptation run four arcs ahead of the anime adaptation. This deal ensures that the latter will not overtake the manga's story and create a big departure from the original plot, the report explains. more >>

The "Straight Outta Compton" director stressed that he wants the film to have what fans of the franchise have come to expect, but, at the same time, he also wants to give it some new flavor. "They feel like it's fresh, they feel like the characters they've come to know and love are there, but this is gonna be different, and that's probably the most I can give you right now," Gray said. more >>
