While the devastating ending to Avengers: Infinity War was as much a shock to most of the cast as it was to heartbroken fans, Paul Rudd managed to find out years before his co-stars – despite not even starring in the movie.

He doesnt even go here.

While many of the stars were left in the dark about Thanos wiping out half the population with a snap of his fingers, Paul claims he just had to know in order to film Ant-Man. How convenient.

The 50-year-old explained: I knew about it early on because when we were writing Ant-Man, I had to know about these things.

He added to Digital Spy: I had to know about some stuff in the future because we were going to have to address it in some way. I remember hearing about it and thinking, “Oh wow, thats gonna be major,” and then years later, lo and behold…

Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson described the move as brave when she found out, recalling: I think Joe Russo called me, either it was Joe Russo or Kevin Feige or the combination of the two called me to talk to me about the Snap, and I was like, “That is so brave, how are you gonna get out of that?”

They were like, “Well figure it out.”

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that the devastating Snap may not have even ended up being included in Infinity War.

Infinity War and Endgame co-writer Stephen McFeely has revealed all that heartache was initially slated to occur in the middle of Endgame.

He told Empire magazine: We had so much story in those early drafts of Infinity War that, if anything, we thought we maybe shouldnt do The Snap until the end of act one of Endgame.

However, they later decided on the epic cliffhanger as it was the most bananas thing they could think up.

Marvel president Kevin Feige said: We talked about that ending for years and years and years. It was the reason to adapt Infinity Gauntlet. What was the most shocking thing we could do? End the movie with The Snap.

While the move definitely did the job and left us all completely heartbroken, its also left everyone wonderinRead More – Source

Mark Medoff, who won a Tony Award for writing Children of a Lesser God and earned an Oscar nom for its movie adaptation, died Tuesday at Mesilla Valley Hospice in Las Cruces, NM. He was 79.

Children of a Lesser God won the 1980 Tony for Best Play and ran for more than two years and 880 performances at Broadways Longacre Theatre. The show about a hearing speech teacher at a school for the deaf who falls for a deaf custodian was turned into a 1986 feature directed by Randa Haines. The film starred William Hurt and Marlee Matlin, who won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for the role. Hurt and supporting actress Piper Laurie also scored Oscar noms, and the film was up for Best Picture but lost to Platoon.

Children of a Lesser God, 1986

A revival of Children of a Lesser God played on the Main Stem for six weeks last year. Medoff also penned Prymate, which had a brief Broadway run in 2004.

Medoffs other feature writing credits include The Outright Winner (2016), City of Joy (1992), Claras Heart (1988), Good Guys Wear Black (1978) and the 1979 adaptation of When You Comin Back, Red Ryder? — which was based on his play that won him the 1974 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding New Playwright.

Born on March 18, 1940, in Mount Carmel, IL, Medoff also had roles in more than a half-dozen films, including his penned pics Claras Heart, Red Ryder? and Santa Fe (1997). He also produced a handful of features.

His final film is Walking with Herb, a faith-based drama starring Edward James Olmos, George Lopez and Mary McDonnell. Medoff wroRead More – Source
