With the new year fast approaching, once 2018 ticks over we’ll be only five short months from seeing Avengers Infinity War. Kevin Feige knows how fans have been wanting to see Thanos finally realized onscreen ever since he was introduced in the original The Avengers. Speaking at the recent Comic Con Experience in Brazil, (via a report from CBR), the longtime Marvel producer seemed aware of the fan concern for the character and his extensive build-up to Infinity War, assuring everyone, we’ll not be disappointed.
According to THR, the film regarded as the “worst movie ever made” will finally get a wide, theatrical release. The Room, which debuted in just two theatres in Los Angeles 14 years ago, will officially play for one day in 600 theatres this January 10th. The film, which is the inspiration for the James Franco directed The Disaster Artist, was financed, produced, written and directed by Tommy Wiseau, and centers on a man named Johnny (Wiseau) and his best friend Mark (Greg Sestero), and a love triangle with Johnny's future wife, Lisa.
