The wonderful Russo Brothers are officially on Facebook! Seeing as they are responsible for bringing us Civil War and Infinity War, it is definitely a page you want to follow!

Casting for Carol Danvers is still to be seen. More information here.

See more here. Daisy Ridley also confirmed talks for Lara Croft! All the excite! See more information here.
We reported from Dallas Comic Con when Robbie and Stephen Amell told everyone to keep an eye on Facebook for more information on a project they had been working on. Well, this week was the week! Check out Code 8 and go to their Indiegogo campaign! Congrats to the Amell boys and their team for reaching their goal in 36 hours!!!
Disnerds have been patiently waiting for even a glimpse of Emma Watson’s Beauty and the Beast! Well, we’ve had a sneak peek of our new Gaston! Luke Evans was on Jonathan Ross’ Show and had a #GastonOff with Hugh Jackman! I’m afraid this will have to tide us over until Disney decides to release something!
Another highly anticipated move is of course Wonder Woman! Sorry, WOOOONDAH WOOOMAAAN! You have to, it’s a thing. So we are fortunate to have her grace our screens this weekend in BvS, but check out this awesome photo of the amazonian ladies! See more here.
