Russo Brothers Decide They Don’t Need Free Time Until 2019

"I'm not disagreeing with your choice or questioning what you did--I'm just saying it would be perfectly acceptable for me to sit on the left every so often."
“I’m not disagreeing with your choice or questioning what you did–I’m just saying it would be perfectly acceptable for me to sit on the left every so often.”

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the Russo brothers will direct Infinity Wars Parts 1 and 2.  Given that the Winter Soldier directing duo starts filming Captain America: Civil War next month, this essentially puts them on an immediate turnaround to start filming the two-part Avengers saga as soon as they finish Civil War’s final shot (and comic fans know what I mean).

While there may have been some studio wrangling going on with this announcement, knowing that Whedon is leaving the Avengers directing chair vacant and the Russos eyeing some Ghostbusters or Spider-Man action, this is still a great grab for Marvel.  Captain America: The Winter Solder is ranked near the top of any Marvel movie list and the action scenes were fantastic.  Given the short time between shooting Cap 3 and Infinity War, expect whatever tone we see start to come across in the Civil War movie to also drive the Infinity War flicks.  Set course for awesome!

Where We’re Going We Don’t Need An iPhone Case That Makes Sense

Do you enjoy walking around town with a model replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future Part 2 but can’t stand it when people constantly question why in the world you’d walk around town with a model replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future Part 2?  You’re in luck!  Now you can pre-order this amazing iPhone 6 case that looks as silly as it functions!  Flip open a wheel to adjust the volume!  Slide open the hood to take a picture!  Hold a car model up to your face to make a telephone call!  Slap yourself silly for even thinking about getting this!  But at least watch the video.

h/t to Greg Friedman for pointing out this most ludicrous item.
