Sad news people, but the Avengers 4 trailer could be further away than you think.

Its been a long waiting game for the Infinity War sequel and even more difficult wait for the trailer.

While it was thought a trailer would be released sometime this year, co-director Joe Russo has hinted that we may wait until 2019.

You may or may not see it before the calendar turns to 2019, Russo said during an Instagram fan Q&A.

This still means the trailer could come out any minute now but it also means we may have to wait until 2019.

Lord help us all, the wait is painful as it is.

Excuse our anguish but it wasnt long ago that Marvel boss Kevin Feige said that it would be with us before the end of the year.

Considering the fact that there is less than two months left this in 2018, we were fairly optimistic hearing that.

During the interview, Russo also revealed some more information on what length the movie currently stood at, admitting that it was currently the longest Marvel movie by far.

The running time on Avengers 4 is currently sitting right at three hours, so well see if that holds, he said. But its sitting right at three hours right now.

We doubt anyone will have any complaints because Avengers 4 has a lot of answering to do after we were all left on an incredibly tense cliffhanger during Infinity War.

While details are under wraps on the next movie, one star has had their return pretty much confirmed.

British star Letitia Wright has reportedly confirmed that the actress will reprise her role as Princess Shuri in the new Avenger and the Black Panther sequel after fans questioned whether she survived Thanos potentially fatal finger snap.

According to Deadline, Letitia, 25, recently wrapped filming on-set of Avengers 4, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and its believed Shuri was appearing in the productions reshoots.

Shuris fate was left up in the air in Infinity War with her being knocked aside by Corvus Glaive when Thanos charged into Wakanda to steal Visions Mind Stone.

Letitias Black Panther co-star, Angela Bassett, recently leaked the news of Shuris return, when confirming that two Wakandans survived Thanos snap, telling Screen Rant in July: No. Neither did my daughter. Shuri, shes a bright girl there in Wakanda. So…

So… well take that as our girl Shuri is definitely back.

Avengers 4 is set to hit screens on 27 April although a trailer is yet to be released.

Disney Offers A Behind-The-Scenes Glimpse Into The Making Of Ralph Breaks The Internet

Walt Disney Animation Studios

Walt Disney Animation Studios used the Wall Street Journals technology conference to talk about how animators portrayed the internet in the film Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 and build some Silicon Valley buzz for its Nov. 21 opening.

Producer Clark Spencer said the internet provided an intriguing environment for the films two central characters, Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman), to explore, as they search for a replacement part for Vanellopes broken arcade game, Sugar Rush.

“The internet has two sides to it. It has this incredibly powerful side that connects people,” Spencer said. “It also has that dark side that preys on peoples insecurities. It was that duality that appealed to us.”

The film represents the internet as a vertical place, where websites are stacked one on top of the other. Defunct sites, like GeoCities and Napster, inhabit a subterranean “oldernet.” Below that lurks the darknet, a nefarious place populated with credit card numbers and mothers maiden names and inhabited by tricksters.

The modern internet is a shinier, bustling place occupying the surface.

Artists drew design inspiration from a visit to the data center at One Wilshire Blvd, a building that houses internet connections for the entire West Coast, with tens of thousands of computer servers and miles of cabling connecting the region with the Asia-Pacific.

“It inspired the development team to think of the internet as a city,” Spencer said. “The various sidewalks are connection points.”

The film finds playful ways to represent familiar internet services like Ebay, which is depicted as a cavernous, neon-lit auction house with gavel-wielding auctioneers driving up the bidding as the time runs down.

BuzzFeed and YouTube appear as a conglomeration, BuzzzTube, a social media platform that distributes viral videos — and dishes out some pretty harsh comments.

“On the internet, do not read the comments,” Shank (Gal Gadot) advises tells Ralph in one scene. “I should have told you that. This place can bring out the worst in people.”

Director Lukas Dhont Talks Netflix Drama Girl, Opening A Dialogue With Trans Community – Awardsline Screening Series

As Belgiums submission for this years Foreign Language Oscar race, the Lukas Dhont-directed drama Gi..

As Belgiums submission for this years Foreign Language Oscar race, the Lukas Dhont-directed drama Girl tells the story of Lara (Victor Polster), a 15-year-old girl born in a boys body committed to becoming a professional ballerina. The film, which is Dhonts debut feature and based on a real-life woman named Nora, premiered at Cannes and won the Camera dOr and earned Polster a Best Performance nod. It was also acquired by Netflix for North and Latin America. During an Awardsline screening, Dhont talked about the journey of making Girl and addressed the sensitive topic of transgender representation in film.

The seed of Girl was planted nearly a decade ago when Dhont read a newspaper article about a young trans girl named Nora who wanted to be a ballerina but was not allowed in the girls class. Dhont approached Nora about doing a documentary about it. They stayed in contact over the years and the idea went from being a documentary to a narrative feature film.

“What was so good about making it fiction rather than a documentary was that it was not only something for me or for the audience but something for her,” said Dhont. “She could use the film as a tool to talk about something that had happened in her past, but as a tool to let it go — and that was something very important to us.”

Dhont worked with Nora to write the film, but she didnt want her name to be attached to it. In the beginning of the process, he said she wanted to “stay in the shadows.”

“She would write with us but she wouldnt want her name attached because she was at a point in her life where although she was honest with the world and herself, she was at a moment in her life where she really wanted to fit in,” he pointed out.

Nora didnt want to stand out because that would lead to confrontation — and Dhont respected and related to her wishes. At the time, he was 18 and the project became more personal to him. “I wasnt open about my sexuality,” said Dhont. “For a very long time, I tried to fit in a heteronormative society. I recognized that need to fit in when she was talking to me.”

But as the project evolved, so did Nora. She became more vocal about herself and accepted her identity. She had a hand in casting Polster in the role. As his acting debut, Polster was nervous that he would not do her justice, but when she remained on set during his performance, thats when he knew she believed in him.

Transgender issues are a hot-button topic as of late and marginalized groups are watching Hollywood like a hawk when it comes to authentic representation. With Girl, Dhont is aware that he cast a cisgender male in a trans role (they found him in a genderless casting). He is also aware of the “diverse reactions” the film would bring — particularly with the trans community.

“For a part of the trans community, this is a film that is more difficult,” he admits. Dhont says that he is open to having a conversation with anyone regardless of their opinion of the film. “I like that dialogue. I like to talk about the idea of representation and the future of it. For me, thats the most exciting part about it — to share a dialogue with someone that can sometimes have a different opinion. That makes me learn as a person and hopefully a better director.”
