Iron Man, Captain America reunite in new 'Avengers: Endgame' clip

Iron Man, Captain America reunite in new 'Avengers: Endgame' clipThe Avengers make one last stand against the all-powerful Thanos in a new clip for Avengers: Endgame.

The special look, released on Tuesday, features Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) reuniting for the first time since they battled each other in 2016's Captain America: Civil War.

The duo help lead a depleted Avengers team that consists of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) against Thanos (Josh Brolin), who wiped out half of all existence in Avengers: Infinity War.

"You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me," Thanos says.

Other key moments include Iron Man and Captain America sharing a handshake and Iron Man being reunited with Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow).

Avengers: Endgame, from directors Anthony and Joe Russo, is set to arrive in theaters on April 26.

Taraji P. Henson shares struggle with depression, anxiety

Taraji P. Henson is putting a spotlight on mental health issues.

The 48-year-old actress shared her struggle with depression and anxiety in an interview with Variety published Tuesday after launching the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation in September.

The foundation is named after Henson's late father, who experienced mental health problems following his return from the Vietnam War. The organization seeks to end the stigma surrounding mental illness in the African-American community.

Henson, who plays Cookie Lyon on Empire, said she goes home to "very serious problems" and is "still a real human," despite her celebrity.

"I suffer from depression," she said. "My anxiety is kicking up even more every day, and I've never really dealt with anxiety like that. It's something new."

Henson said she manages her mental health issues by seeing a therapist and avoiding social media.

"That's the only way I can get through it," she shared. "You can talk to your friends, but you need a professional who can give you exercises. So that when you're on the ledge, you have things to say to yourself that will get you off that ledge and past your weakest moments."

Henson celebrated the opening of the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation in an Instagram post in September.

"It's official daddy!!! I hope you are proud!!! #borislhensonfoundation #RipDaddy," she wrote.

Empire is in the midst of its fifth season on Fox. The series co-stars Terrence Howard, Bryshere Y. Gray, Jussie Smollett and Trai Byers.

So the scene goes on and right after the scene I just feel like man, I'm not sure that was prop - and I look over and Snoop goes, 'Yo Moondog. That wasn't prop weed, that was Snoop weed.'"

Michele will play the mermaid Ariel, with Fierstein as the sorceress Ursula. The production co-stars Peter Gallagher as King Triton, Leo Gallo as Prince Eric, Ken Page as Sebastian and Cheech Marin as Chef Louis.

The Little Mermaid: An Immersive Live-to-Film Concert is based on the animated Disney movie The Little Mermaid, which opened in 1989. The event will be held May 17 and 18 in honor of the film's 30th anniversary.

Michele and the cast will perform songs from The Little Mermaid while backed by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Composer Alan Menken, who scored the Disney film, will appear as a special guest.

The Hollywood Reporter said the Hollywood Bowl will be transformed into the "Hollywood Fish Bowl Dive-In Theater." The experience will include the the 1938 Silly Symphony cartoon Merbabies played to a live original score from Emily Bear.

Tickets for The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl go on sale Friday. The venue previously put on a live-to-film rendition in 2016.

Michele is best known for playing Rachel Berry in the Fox series Glee. She shared a photo of herself wearing a mermaid tail costume Monday on Twitter.

"It's all happening!" the actress wrote.

Fierstein is known for the films Mrs. Doubtfire, Independence Day and Death to Smoochy. He will voice a character in the new Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

Which cast member told her mother the ending to 'Game of Thrones'?

Emilia Clarke discussed on The Late Show how her mother is the only person she told about the ending to HBO's Game of Thrones.

"The good thing about telling my mom these things is that she's a vault because she's just done forgotten it," Clarke, who portrays Daenerys Targaryen on the fantasy drama said to host Stephen Colbert on Tuesday.

Clarke explained how despite her mother reading one of the scenes from the final season's script, she could not remember what happened. The actress also said that she refused to share the ending with her mother twice.

"If she falls asleep on a plane I'm very worried that in her sleep she's just going to say it and not realize it, her subconscious knows exactly what happened." Clarke continued.

Clarke's comments come after her fellow Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner said that her fiance Joe Jonas had to sign a non-disclosure agreement with HBO after the singer figured out how the series ends while visiting the set.

Clarke also discussed with Colbert her on-set working conditions as compared to her co-star Kit Harrington who she says likes to complain about filming the show in cold weather while wearing heavy clothing.

"I'm in a quarry in Malta in 100 degree heat passing out every single season because I have two sets of hair on my head," she said.

Game of Thrones returns for its eighth and final season on April 14.
