Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Is Expected To Continue Gamora’s Alternate Timeline Storyline

The events of Avengers: Endgame created an alternate timeline, one that allowed some dead characters to “return.” I’m not talking about the dusted folks. I’m talking about the definitively dead characters who died pre-Snap. I put “return” in quotation marks because the original versions of these characters perished before Thanos killed half the universe in Avengers: Infinity War, excluding them entirely from the temporal rescue attempt which comprises most of the film. These characters included Loki, Vision, Heimdall, and, most tragically, Gamora. Thrown from the top of a rocky cliff on Vormir by her adoptive father Thanos, Gamora was easily the character who was dealt the cruelest blow.

However, by the time the credits roll on Endgame, we’re left with a version of Gamora created when the Avengers traveled back in time. Now, if recent comments are to be believed, her story will continue in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. It’s fairly predictable, but it’s cleverly executed and makes her return more organic and believable. We all knew it would happen. We just didn’t know how.

And we still don’t know how. But we do know a bit more about where the writers’ heads are at regarding her return to the franchise. At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Avengers: Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely not only confirmed that Gamora survived Iron Man’s snap, but also hinted at her possible return in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3. The character wasn’t dusted like her despotic father, whom we knew was pretty dang dead after Tony Stark sacrificed himself to save the universe.

This all makes perfect sense, especially considering the fact that a Guardians sequel without one of its most important characters wouldn’t feel right. And Peter Quill needs to be an idiot in more ways than one, and what better way to do that than to bring back his smarter, more competent love interest? (Assuming alternate timeline Gamora is even his love interest.) Sorry, Peter. You done goofed when you punched Thanos in the head repeatedly and basically killed everybody.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 may also add Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, whom Drax star Dave Bautista said would be a perfect fit for the new film. Even Hemsworth himself wants to return. The film will mark James Gunn’s triumphant return to the MCU after the whole Twitter fiasco that went down around this time last year.

Avengers: Endgame is now playing in theaters. It’s really good so if you haven’t had the chance to catch it, now may be the best time. Mark Ruffalo even said so. But it’s leaving theaters soon. That’s if it’s not already gone where you are.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte Are Reportedly as Obsessed With Baby Archie as We Are

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor may be one of the most famous babies in the world—his parents are out here sharing his milestones with the likes of Beyoncé and Jay-Z—but to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, he’s simply their adorable little cousin.

Us Weekly reports that George and Charlotte are especially taken with the newest member of the royal family. “They dote on him,” a source told the magazine. “Charlotte treats Meghan and Harry’s son like a little doll and is always asking after him.”

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle recently took all the kids to watch their fathers, Prince William and Prince Harry, play in a celebrity polo match—and from the photos, it looks like a good time was had by all. Even Prince Louis got in on the action, playing with his mom’s sunglasses and making faces for Aunt Meghan and Archie.

Us Weekly also reports that George, who will turn 6 on July 22, and Charlotte, 4, also include their little brother in playtime. But it sounds like Charlotte may be running the show. “Charlotte’s a bit of a tomboy and loves climbing and sports,” their source said. “Although Charlotte’s much bossier than George, she looks up to him. They squabble over small things like toys, but the majority of the time they get along.”

Recent reports indicate that the splitting of the royal households has eased whatever tension might have been present between the Cambridges and the Sussexes. Middleton and Markle, who have been the subject of many a tabloid headline about a “royal feud” are apparently getting closer, too. “They’re each a little more relaxed,” a source says. “They have more in common now.”

It’s not surprising, then, that the royal cousins are also bonding. Harry and William are famously tight with their own cousins—Zara Tindall, Peter Phillips, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie. After all, who else could truly understand what growing up in the royal spotlight is actually like?

Dark Phoenix Is Being Rebranded For Its Home Release

Dark Phoenix took a page from Logan‘s book and just went with its own standalone title for release in theaters. But that’s pretty much where the Logan similarities end. When Dark Phoenix arrives on digital and disc this September, it will make its status as an X-Men film much more clear.

Dark Phoenix is back to X-Men: Dark Phoenix for its September 3 digital release and September 17 arrival on Blu-ray and DVD. The words X-Men are prominent in the packaging, in case the X-factor wasn’t clear. Also, presumably, the rebranding aims to entice more people to pick up the film — collect the whole set, now that the X-Men film franchise as we know it is over.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is the sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse (which was always called that, never just Apocalypse, which would’ve made it sound like a generic disaster movie). It’s also the 12th movie in the X-Men series that started with X-Men back in 2000. Along the way, only five movies removed X-Men from the title — The Wolverine in 2013, Deadpool in 2016, Logan in 2017, Deadpool 2 in 2018, and now Dark Phoenix in 2019.

It may seem like a minor thing to rebrand the movie for the home release, but this could be X-Men: Dark Phoenix‘s last chance to pick up some money. With just over $250 million in global box office receipts, that’s not expected to cover the full cost of both making the film and releasing/marketing it around the world. Dark Phoenix was even a bigger box office bomb than Fox’s ill-fated Fantastic Four movie.

All in all, it was not the most impressive way to end the X-Men film franchise as we know it, and not the best way to walk through the Disney door. But fans are hopeful for the Marvel Comics characters themselves. What will the future hold for them in the MCU? We shall see. We won’t see anytime soon, though.

In case you’re curious, here are Fox‘s listed special features for X-Men: Dark Phoenix on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital HD:

Dark Phoenix may have struggled at the box office in part because fans didn’t feel compelled to rush out and see it at the theater. But will they watch it at home through the digital release or on disc? What’s your take? Have you already seen the movie in theaters? Will you check out X-Men: Dark Phoenix‘s home release or not?

Selena Gomez Was a Gorgeous Maid of Honor at Her Cousin’s Wedding

Selena Gomez has certainly made a case for being an incredible maid of honor for her cousin, Priscilla DeLeon—and not just on her big day, but in all the lead-up to it. The two have been preparing for DeLeon’s wedding for a long time: Back in December 2017, DeLeon revealed that Gomez had surprised her by buying DeLeon a stunning wedding dress. More recently, Gomez threw DeLeon a bachelorette party in June that took the form of a girls’ trip to Puerta Vallerta, Mexico.

But DeLeon’s big day finally arrived on Friday, July 19—and Gomez was at the Dallas venue for every special moment of it. Social media posts from the festivities show Gomez looking relaxed and happy in a beautiful black strapless gown with her hair down in loose curls.


The obviously close group got silly for some selfies, too.

And we finally got a look at that dress!

As part of her maid of honor duties, Gomez also gave a toast to the bride and her new husband, Jay Cosme. In clips posted to Twitter she can be heard telling DeLeon that she “made her strong” and expressing her happiness and prayers for the couple, ending her speech with a sweet and emotional, “I love you.”

DeLeon’s wedding wasn’t the only one Gomez has played a role in this year: In May, she gave a touching tribute to her longtime bodyguard at his nuptials. “It’s so special. I’m very honored to be here and to celebrate you both.… God bless you guys,” she said. “We will be praying for you, and thank you so much.”

In the run-up to her big day, DeLeon shared a new photo from that epic bachelorette trip Gomez planned. “Marriage license day,” she wrote. “So it’s only right to post a bachelorette picture since I’m almost a married woman!”

During that gorgeous getaway, DeLeon paid tribute to her cousin. “I wouldn’t want anyone else standing next to me at the alter (even the two pregnant ones that couldn’t attend) My maid of honor really showed out this weekend and threw me the bachelorette party of my dreams. I am forever grateful,” she wrote.

Gomez also threw a bridal shower for another close friend earlier this year, which further proves she is a stellar friend, wedding guest, and party planner. A true triple threat indeed.

How Star Wars Fans Can Learn More About The Knights Of Ren

If you’ve seen the Star Wars sequel trilogy so far, you’ll know what I mean when I say that the new movies have been woefully bereft of promised characters: the Knights of Ren. We know little about them and even less about why they haven’t been prioritized (even though The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson explained why he didn’t include them in his film). This is strange, especially considering how their leader, Kylo Ren, has been one of the most important players in the Skywalker Saga.

Fortunately, after months of rumors, Kylo’s group of renegade Jedi apprentices were confirmed to appear in December’s trilogy-capper, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. And, if you want to learn more about these sinister-but-not-yet-seen side characters, there’s a comic series for that.

Popular comic book writer Charles Soule confirmed on Twitter that he will be writing a series titled Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren. The series promises to explore the origins of the Knights of Ren, why they joined Kylo’s cause after Luke nearly killed him in his sleep (thanks, The Last Jedi), and what they’re up to now. It’s sure to be a fascinating series, and Soule is more than up for the job. He’s written countless comic books, an acclaimed novel titled The Oracle Year, and all kinds of other cool stories you should check out. He’s written Star Wars stories before, too. Plenty of them. It’s highly likely, even probable, that he’s gonna knock this one out of the park.

The announcement happened during the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, where the publishers gathered to discuss the new 4-issue series and hype up fans for what’s to come. Nothing else was mentioned, which is consistent with Disney and Lucasfilm’s oath to secrecy when it comes to anything and everything Star Wars. Hopefully, though, the series will give us the context we need before Rey and Kylo’s final confrontation in the next film.

Right now, all we know about the Knights of Ren comes from what we’ve seen in Rey’s fitful visions in The Force Awakens, from Luke’s brief mention of them in The Last Jedi, and from the sobering flashback showing us the Jedi temple they burned. It’s not a lot to draw from, but luckily, an unannounced artist is drawing it for us (in comic book form).

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ends it all on December 20, 2019. The Rise of Kylo Ren hits shelves shortly before that. Consider it a primer for what’s to come. Here’s to hoping it sets up the conclusion to a beloved saga in a powerful and satisfying way.

A Fan Called Anna Kendrick’s New Film Look Unflattering, And Her Reply Was NSFW Gold

God I love Anna Kendrick. The Pitch Perfect star is now filming the sci-fi thriller Stowaway with Toni Collette, Daniel Dae Kim, and Shamier Anderson. The story follows a spacecraft headed to Mars, with the crew discovering a stowaway after takeoff. To film space scenes, Kendrick donned a spacesuit. Pretty obvious. She shared a behind-the-scenes image in costume, alongside some crew members on set.

One fan apparently wasn’t impressed with her bulky spacesuit look, and he decided to share this comment on her photo:

You really don’t want to give Anna Kendrick that kind of ammunition, man. Here’s what she said in reply:

Daaaaaamn. She added a lipstick emoji to nail the point home.

The original poster must’ve deleted his comment, because Anna Kendrick later shared this post on Instagram capturing their conversation (and showing her spacesuit outfit), also adding in the caption that she was just messing with the guy:

You know what. She’s probably right. If this guy has a girl, she’s probably aca-amazed by Anna Kendrick and ready to upgrade.

At any rate, Stowaway seems to be going well so far! When The Hollywood Reporter announced Anna Kendrick’s role this past October, it was noted that she’ll play the spaceship’s medical researcher. The crew finds the stowaway too far from Earth to turn back, but with resources quickly dwindling, Kendrick’s medical researcher is the only dissenting voice against the group consensus in favor of a grim outcome. Based on that, it sounds like the rest of the crew wants to kill the stowaway. (Maybe eat them? Hope not.)

Check out the Stowaway cast on set from the first day of filming:

Stowaway was co-written by Brazilian musician/YouTuber Joe Penna and Ryan Morrison, and it’s being directed by Penna. They are fresh off the 2018 survival drama Arctic.

As for what else Anna Kendrick is up to, when she’s not slaying commenters on Instagram, she has main roles in the web series Human Discoveries and Dummy. Later in 2019, she has the comedy thriller The Day Shall Come opening September 27 in the U.S., and the Christmas comedy Noelle coming to Disney+ later this year. Kendrick is also returning as the voice of Poppy for Trolls World Tour, which opens in April 2020. Stowaway hasn’t announced an official release date yet but it’s expected in 2020.

People Think Stranger Things’ Natalia Dyer Looks Exactly Like Timothee Chalamet, and It’s Scary Accurate

If there’s one thing that can unite Twitter, it’s a good celebrity doppelgänger. And we’ve had our share of celebs who can twin with us normals, like this woman who could basically be Rihanna and a bodybuilder who is a dead ringer for J.Lo. But there’s an even rarer doppelgänger that Twitter delights in, and those are the “twins” where both parties involved are famous faces. The latest one Twitter’s freaking out over? The fact that Stranger ThingsNatalia Dyer and Internet boyfriend/movie star Timothée Chalamet could pretty much be forgiven for making us all think they were twins separated at birth.

Dyer’s just wrapped her latest season of Stranger Things, while Chalamet will soon be seen in Little Women, out December 25, and Dune, due out next year. (Although if you haven’t seen the film that woke the world up to him, Call Me by Your Name, it’s the perfect time of year to watch it.) As far as their doppelgänger looks, once you see it, you can’t look away. They both have that low-key romantic vibe going on, thanks to their porcelain skin and big eyes—especially when Dyer is wearing her hair curly and tousled, which is kind of Chalamet’s go-to thing. They even have the same jawline, which is pretty impressive for two people comprised of different genetic material.

Here’s Dyer:

The Lion King Already Passed A Box Office Milestone

That was fast. The Lion King just opened yesterday in the U.S. but it’s already out there roaring up coins around the world. In the past week, The Lion King easily entered the nine-figure race with $130.5 million worldwide — by Thursday. That’s not even counting what The Lion King will make this weekend overseas, or here at the domestic market.

But let’s mention that now.

The Lion King is expected to make $300 million overseas from its first 10 days, per Deadline.

The Lion King is also looking at a domestic opening weekend from $180 to $200 million, from a massive 4,700 theaters.

Theoretically, The Lion King could hit $500 million worldwide by the end of the weekend. We are definitely looking at a 10-figure movie by the end of its box office run.

These numbers are incredibly impressive, but because The Lion King opened in the same year as Avengers: Endgame, it will have to settle for a silver medal no matter what. Avengers: Endgame had a record domestic opening weekend of $357.1 million, which is just ludicrous. A more realistic domestic benchmark for the 2019 Lion King might be the 2017 Beauty and the Beast, which opened to $174,750,616.

The Lion King is already tracking to top the Beauty and the Beast remake, which made $1,263,521,126 worldwide. There were some concerns that The Lion King‘s disappointing reviews from critics might hurt the film, but not so far.

The Lion King currently has a 55% rating from Rotten Tomatoes critics, but an 89% audience score from RT users, and an A CinemaScore from moviegoers polled on opening night. That’s pretty similar to the live-action Aladdin, which initially looked like it might struggle at the box office, but is now at $965,990,139 worldwide. It just keeps going. Will The Lion King keep going strong week after week like that too?

So how high will The Lion King soar? CinemaBlend’s Sunday box office roundup will give the domestic weekend figures, and we’ll keep a close eye on the movie’s progress from here. It certainly has enough room to spread its paws, since no one dared take it on this weekend. The Lion King is expected to win the weekend so easily it’s scary.

Box Office Mojo projects The Lion King to open to $190 million domestic, followed by Spider-Man: Far From Home with around $22 million, then Toy Story 4 with $12.6 million. Yes, Disney owns everything. After that, though, they see Crawl, Yesterday, and Stuber on the charts, followed by more Disney with Aladdin.

Disney is going to keep popping out remakes until they stop making money, and it’s clear The Lion King is going to make all the money. Based on the success of Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, it looks like one of the lessons of these remakes is that audiences are perfectly happy to go see stories that stick close to the animated classics. New technology and new voice actors are different enough — they don’t want it to be so different that it’s like Dumbo.

The Future Of The Avengers: Who Will Be On The New Team?

When our heroes first assembled in The Avengers

SPOILER WARNING: Major spoilers follow for Avengers: Endgame**. You don’t want to know any of this stuff until you’ve seen the movie.**

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has come along way since the Avengers first assembled in 2012. Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, it looks like our heroes are going through a big change.

In the battle for bringing Thanos (Josh Brolin) to justice and bringing order back to the world, some Avengers have fallen, while others have chosen to go down a new path and others had no other choice. The heroes who remain may be our only hope, but could never replace the likes of Iron Man or Black Widow.

The heroes that define the future of the MCU can at least succeed the roles left open by the Avengers of yesterday and there are a few deserving names in mind. Who will assemble as the new official Avengers and what makes them fitting successors?

Spider-Man in his Iron-Spider suit in Avengers: Infinity War

Spider-Man As Iron Man

This replacement is, more or less, a given, especially if you consider the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Following the death of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) at the climax of Avengers: Endgame, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) struggles with the idea of taking over as the world’s new Iron Man.

By the end of the film (and through a few mishaps and a pivotal lapse of good judgment), Peter Parker finally gains the self-confidence necessary to call himself the world’s next Iron Man. The movie may be called Spider-Man: Far From Home, but now Tom Holland’s Peter Parker feels more at home than ever… until the last 30 seconds.

Spider-Man may still be young, he may not have the snark or sarcasm, and he certainly does not have the fortune that Tony Stark ever did. However, he is just as smart and clever, is equipped with an awesome suit of iron, and may finally hone the leadership skills required to be the Avenger his fellow Avengers can look up to, despite his height of 5’8.”

Falcon has spread his wings and will fly into a new identity as Captain America

Falcon As Captain America

This replacement is absolutely a given, especially if you consider the resolution of Avengers: Endgame. Following the defeat of Thanos (Josh Brolin), Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) aged almost 80 years after traveling back in time, passing his shield to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) to dub him the new Captain America and retire the Falcon mantle.

Sam Wilson has also succeeded the title originated by Steve Rogers in the comics, with his first appearance as Captain America in 2014 happening in a similar fashion to the events in Avengers: Endgame. While Sam’s run as Cap only lasted three years, he should be able to continue carrying the mantle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in upcoming films and maybe even his own Disney+ series that he will share with Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes called Falcon & Winter Soldier, for which I imagine the title might be updated.

Speaking of Bucky Barnes, while Winter Soldier also has an inked history of carrying the shield as well, Sam Wilson is the one who has absolutely earned the Captain America title. He is a veteran of combat, has never given up in the face of an earth-shattering threat, and can effortlessly influence positivity and empowerment among the Avengers, which, in this time of uncertainty, they are probably going to need more than ever.

Thor met his match in Valkyrie

Valkyrie As Thor

Obviously Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is not gone, he is just “off world,” with Avengers: Endgame resolving his storyline by joining the Guardians of the Galaxy on their trip into space as the resident “Asgardian of the Galaxy.” (Although that may not be a permanent thing.) In turn, he gave up his throne as leader of Asgard and passed the role onto fellow Asgardian warrior Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson).

Valkyrie is a born leader, chosen by Odin himself to lead the group of warrior goddesses known as Valkyrior, which she is now the sole remainder. Now that she is stationed on Earth as New Asgard’s queen, the Avengers will likely have no problem getting ahold of her whenever they may need her assistance.

I think it may be safe to infer that, given her reaction to Thor’s extreme alcoholism in Avengers: Endgame, Valkyrie is now sober, clear-minded, strong-willed, and will have no problem working double duty ruling Asgard and fighting alongside the Avengers.

Okoye is one of Wakanda's fiercest warriors

Okoye As Black Widow

Just so we are clear, I know full well that no one could ever replace Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson). Before she gave her life to acquire the Soul Stone in Avengers: Endgame, the Russian-born spy-turned-Avenger who operated under the codename Black Widow was, practically, the heart and soul of the team.

Black Widow cured Tony Stark’s health problems in Iron Man 2, encouraged Steve Rogers to embrace his romantic side in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and helped Bruce Banner return to his human side in Avengers: Age of Ultron. No one could ever replace that.

However, I think I can make a case that one of T’Challa’s most trusted warriors in Black Panther might be a good fit to assimilate Black Widow’s role. After Thanos wiped out half of the universe’s population in Avengers: Infinity War, Wakanda’s trusted warrior Okoye (Danai Gurira) kept in close touch with the Avengers, updating them on any pressing matters she kept tabs on, ready for action at any minute.

While it may be a bit of a loss for Wakanda, it would be a triumphant gain for the world if Okoye accepted a full-time position as an Avenger. She has the combat experience, calculated intellect, and unwavering fierceness that the team needs, especially after the loss of a woman who, in the sense of heroism, was defined by those very skills.

Captain Marvel does not need to get angry to smash

Captain Marvel As Hulk

Obviously, we have not lost Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) after the events of Avengers: Endgame and even got to have both at the same time with his new Professor Hulk look. However, using the Stark Gauntlet to reverse Thanos’ snap took a lot out of him and cost him an arm, leaving some room in the department of muscle for the Avengers. Who knows what his future will hold?

I think we can all agree that, while Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) sacrifice in the climax of Avengers: Endgame was the ultimate, round-winning move, Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) owned much of that fight. I would argue that using herself as a missile to take down that Chitauri ship is the greatest Captain Marvel moment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe we’ve seen yet and better than any scene in her own solo movie.

Captain Marvel has proven herself as an unstoppable force to be reckoned with, stronger and more powerful than just about anyone who comes in her way, which makes her just as intimidating as Hulk was to the rest of the Avengers when Bruce Banner turned green. Banner can still stick around to crunch a few numbers when science is necessary, but it’s time to let Carol “smash.”

Ant-Man is always ready for action

Ant-Man As Hawkeye

Clint Barton, the expert archer who earned the name Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner, was sort of given the short end of the stick when he first became an Avenger in the team’s 2012 first movie and was subject to a bit of online ridicule for some time after. When Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) first showed up as Ant-Man, his shrinking abilities were seen as not much more than comic relief, until he grew to the size of a building in Captain America: Civil War and became a key element to reversing Thanos’ snap in Avengers: Endgame.

The reason I bring this up is because both Hawkeye and Ant-Man are heroes who both had to earn a few road miles before being taken seriously. Now that Clint Barton, most likely, is willing to retire for good (as Hawkeye, at least), Scott Lang sounds like a good candidate to pick up where he left off.

Ant-Man has a strong willfulness to fight the good fight, has (mostly) perfected his skills, and (like Hawkeye often did) has a great sense of humor. Most importantly, also like Clint Barton, Scott Lang is a family man and that’s a role that the Avengers could never survive without.

Dr. Strange has the power

Doctor Strange As Vision

Vision, the splicing of Tony Stark’s artificial intelligence assistant Jarvis with the Mind Stone played by Paul Bettany, never really got the credit he deserved until his (supposed) tragic demise in Avengers: Infinity War. He ended the Age of Ultron, he was the only one thinking rationally in Captain America: Civil War, and he was always willing to give his life for the greater good.

Those are some pretty big shoes to fill for someone with only three Marvel Cinematic Universe title credits to his name. The one person I can think of who could fittingly fill in for Vision’s contribution to the Avengers is Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).

The Master of the Mystic Arts possesses abilities of unimaginable power, which he acquired over a shorter training period than most sorcerers would require, being a naturally fast learner. Along with a sentient cloak, Doctor Strange’s teachings have bequeathed him with the wisdom of someone centuries beyond his years, which, as history as shown us, the Avengers could greatly benefit from.

Scarlet Witch still has a long way to go with the Avengers

Scarlet Witch As Scarlet Witch

After the Stark Gauntlet brought her back to life, Wanda Maximoff (better known as Scarlet Witch and played by Elizabeth Olsen) finally got to see her lover’s murderer brought to justice in Avengers: Endgame. Otherwise, one of her more pivotal contributions to the Avengers, unfortunately, is inadvertently causing the inciting incident that leads to the proposition of the Sokovia Accords in Captain America: Civil War.

Thus, I would love to see more of Scarlet Witch’s heroic side in future endeavors. We know that she is not going anywhere anytime soon given that she will star in her own Disney+ series, WandaVision, which will reportedly also star Paul Bettany as Vision. How that will come to be is soon to be revealed.

Scarlet Witch has been a full-time Avenger since Avengers: Age of Ultron and I see no reason at this time to give her position away. There is still much more to see from the telekinetic hero and I am nothing short of excited.

Out of tragedy often comes triumph and these heroes are no exception. The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is still uncertain, so we’ll have to wait and see what the new iteration of the Avengers looks like, and if any new characters are brought into the fold. Ultimately, I have no doubt it the MCU is in good hands as it heads into Phase Four. Do you agree?
