Josh Brolin is pulling double duty in the superhero genre by playing Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Cable in Deadpool 2. Ryan Reynolds shared the first look at the actor in his X-Men costume and we have to say he does look the part of the warior from the future. There’s a huge possibility that Brolin’s Cable character may eventually lead his own franchise in X-Force in the near future. Deadpool 2 comes to cinemas in June 2018.

Blade Runner 2049 Gets An R-Rating
It looks like the Blade Runner sequel will be delivering some hard core gritty action sequences laced with violence and (possibly) nudity when it hits cinemas. That’s because Blade Runner 2049 has officially been rated R for “violence, some sexuality, nudity, and language.” We’re eager to see what transpires with this rating as Ridley Scott’s original received a similar rating when it was released back in the early 80s.
