Monday 9th April- Sebastian Stan would love to feature in the Black Widow solo movie
Sebastian Stan hopes Winter Soldier will show up in the Black Widow solo film.Even though Natasha Romanoff could lead her own film in Phase 4, it doesn't mean she survives Avengers 4. Fans have long thought a movie focusing on the earlier years of Widow is the way to go. But, her solo movie could also be an effort for Marvel to go smaller after Thanos’ attack. During an interview with BadTaste Stan said this:
"They have a very nice history in my opinion. It’s very intricate…the truth is he actually taught her in the comic books. He was a teacher to her. It’s all set during a specific, interesting time. The Cold War. It’s all a very… spy, thrillerish, noirish story…it would be very interesting to explore that on film. I would love if the do that. You know, I hope. Maybe they will."
Monday 9th April- Roy Harper returning as series regular in Arrow Season 7
For the first time, your getting 2 pieces of news for one day as this piece is special to me. It has been revealed that Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), is returning as a series regular in season 7 of Arrow. Roy left the show in season 3 after Oliver broke him out of jail for covering for being 'the hood.' Roy has never 100% left the show, making an appearance in season 4, an appearance in the 100th episode in season 5 and in 2 episodes in season 6. It will be interesting to see what brings him back for good after, finally getting together with Thea and leaving to destroy three lazarus pits. Whatever his reason, I cannot wait, as he use to be my favourite character on the show and look forward to see what the producers have planned.

New projections for Infinity War's opening weekend predict possibly the biggest opening ever. now has Infinity War projected to open between $235-$255 million during its opening weekend. The site also projects a total domestic haul between $565-$650 million. The latter would put Infinity War in similar territory as The Avengers but actually still be behind Black Panther.

Sunday 15th April-Elizabeth Olsen 'would love' a House of M movie
Elizabeth Olsen expresses interest in a possible 'House of M' Marvel film. Since her and Vision’s introduction in the MCU in 'Age of Ultron', comic book fans presumed the two will evolve into a full-blown romantic relationship. Things progressed in 'Civil War' and by the time Infinity War rolls around, it seems like they’re officially an item. Released in 2005, the House of M comic book storyline involves a delusional Scarlet Witch who loses control of her ability to alter reality. Following a nervous breakdown due to her losing her two kids with Vision, she inadvertently creates an alternate reality where her family is royalty and mutants are under the reign of Magneto. Speaking to Metro UK she says this
I would love to [do a standalone], and I would love it to be House Of M, which is a comic book series of The Vision and Scarlet Witch having a make-believe family. Then they [Vision and her family] have to tell her that she was make-believing the entire time, and she has a very traumatic experience and screams, and kills all the mutants – but that’s an X-Men story so we’d have to adjust the ending.
