ANGELINA JOLIE is tending to the tension in her acrimonious, drawn-out divorce from Brad Pitt.
Earlier this month, I revealed the actress wants to win back the affections of her ex, but he has spurned her advances for the good of their family.
Now I’ve learned there is an Ange's new movie role for Marvel, which will be filmed in London.
Brangelina, friends of the pair, have revealed to me that Ange wants to take the couple's children to the UK for the duration of filming.
Brad has been left upset because it is going to make it more difficult to see them, being permanently based in Los Angeles.
As well as having Shiloh, 12, and Knox and Vivienne, the, together, Brad took on Angelina's three adopted children Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, and Zahara, 14.
I´m told he is not going to take dramatic measures to try to stop the temporary move.
This is largely because he has determined to have as little contact with his former wife as possible but he wants to be harmonious for the sake of the children.
The friends stress Brad is the dream dad and his kids take over over everything, he will do whatever he can to see them even if they end up spending time in London with their mother.
Angelina was revealed to be limbering up for her first foray into Marvel Spandex in March.
She is due to play as an unconfirmed role in The Eternals, which will be a superhero movie debut.
The film follows a group of near-immortal beings who are battling evil offshoots called Deviants, created by cosmic beings called Celestials.
It is set to be Marvel's bridge diverse movie ever.
Just last month, bosses were hunting for an openly gay actor to play their first LGBT superhero.
Chloe Zhao, Chinese indie director, will be Marvel's first woman of color at the helm.
Eternals is scheduled to begin filming in September and is tipped for release in 2020.
Angelina is currently working with Disney, who owns Marvel, on two high-profile movie projects.
She will reprise her role as Sleeping Beauty's Horned Villain in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which is released in the UK in October.
She is also producing The One And Only Ivan, and part-animated, part-live action film, based on the children's book about gorilla who lives in and the shopping center.
Early this month, Brad and Angelina restored their legally single statuses after two years of divorce proceedings.
But their legal battle is not yet over.

Mike's Bittersweet Launch
ONE of those happy / sad moments in life as Mike Thalassitis' Essex Restaurant The Skillet opens its doors today.
The launch had been my passion project before his tragic death, which all those close to him are still trying to comprehend.
His friend Lizzie Cundy said when they were together "all he could talk about was his new restaurant".
She added: “He was excited about it and I was excited to help him.
“That’s why his death came with such a shock.
"He deserved a new start from Love Island. His eyes lit up when he talked about the restaurant with me.
“I said he would be the new Jamie Oliver. He laughed.
"This is what makes me so sad because it was new beginnings."
We´ll never get over the unfathomable loss of Mike but I hope his breakfast bar in Loughton is a huge success.
In tribute to Mike, all the drinks will go to CALM, the Campaign Against Living Miserably.
