Pablo Schreiber has been cast as Master Chief in Showtime’s upcoming Halo television series.
Showtime’s upcoming Halo television series will finally bring the revered video game franchise to life and First Man star Pablo Schreiber has landed the lead role of Master Chief. In the video games, Master Chief is a biochemically and cybernetically-enhanced supersoldier who is never seen without his iconic green-colored armor and helmet. Raised and trained from an early age to be a weapon, Master Chief is a playable character in five installments of the Halo video game series and Pablo Schreiber’s version of the character is described as follows:
“Earth’s most advanced warrior in the 26th century and the only hope of salvation for a civilization pushed to the brink of destruction by the Covenant, an unstoppable alliance of alien worlds committed to the destruction of humanity.”
Newcomer Yerin Ha has also joined Showtime’s Halo series as Quan Ah, a character described as “a shrewd, audacious 16-year-old from the Outer Colonies who meets Master Chief at a fateful time for them both.”
Kyle Killen (Awake) and Steven Kane (The Last Ship) are on board Showtime’s Halo series as co-showrunners and executive producers. Showtime describes their adaption of Halo as “weaving deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future.”

New ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Character Posters Feature Surviving & Fallen Heroes
Marvel Studios released new Avengers: Endgame character posters for both the surviving and fallen heroes of Thanos' decimation in Infinity War.
Nearly one year ago, fans were devasted when Avengers: Infinity War concluded with Thanos carrying out his mission to eradicate half of the population in the universe, including several MCU heroes. In exactly one month, fans will finally discover how the surviving Avengers plan to avenge their fallen comrades and potentially undo Thanos' decimation with the help of newcomer Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). Now, Marvel Studios has released several character posters not only for the surviving heroes who will embark on a game-changing mission in Endgame but also for those who fell victim to Thanos' eradication in Infinity War.
The line-up includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Bradley Cooper's Rocket Raccoon, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and many more!

Endgame will serve as both a follow up to Avengers: Infinity War as well as the conclusion to the 22 films that came before it, which have now been dubbed as the Infinity Saga by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, before Marvel kicks off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Far From Home in July.
While plot details still remain under wraps, Earth's Mightiest Heroes are expected to team up with Brie Larson's Captain Marvel and utilize the Quantum Realm in their efforts to undo the decimation from Thanos' snap and bring back half of the universe's population, who were turned to dust by the Mad Titan.
