Good morning! If you’re up and reading with me, then you’re most likely already waiting for that coveted Avengers 4 trailer. However, if you don’t know, Daniel RPK, a writer for Super Bros Movies has announced that the long-awaited Avengers 4 trailer will release at 9 a.m. EST today. Although Marvel Studios hasn’t officially made any announcements, Daniel RPK has been on-point about other trailers in the past and many media outlets are backing his claim.

The Game Awards

Last night, some of the biggest gamers in the world came together to announce the winners of the Game Awards. If you went to be early, check out the recap here.

Oh, Snap – the Snap Has a Name!

We’ve all called it something – the snap, the snappening, the dusting, or the end of the world as we know it. However, now Marvel has finally released the official name of Thanos’ destructive snap. As revealed by Screen Rant and the book entitled The Cosmic Quest Volume Two: Aftermath, the demise of half of the world is now known as “The Decimation”. So, what does this mean about the next movie? Decimation sounds extremely permanent…

New Men in Black Movie Given Official Title

We’ve all heard that there’s going to be a new Men in Black movie, but now the film has a name! Directed by F. Gary Gray, the movie is now officially titled Men in Black International. It looks like the alien-busting team will be tackling an international threat as Thor: Ragnarok’s Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth reunite once again to play Agent M and Agent H. Other stars include Emma Thompson, Kumail Najiani, Rafe Spall, Rebecca Ferguson, and Liam Neeson. Men in Black International is set to appear in theaters on June 14, 2019.

Jake Gyllenhaal Joins Instagram and Confirms Role as Mysterio

There have been rumors for a while now that suggest Jake Gyllenhaal was in talks to play villain Mysterio in the upcoming film, Spider-Man: Far From Home. Well, the actor joined Instagram yesterday to post one single video that hilariously confirms his role.

In the post, Gyllenhaal is holding a 1989 Amazing Spider-Man comic entitled “The Return of the Man Called Mysterio” which he puts down to reveal his utterly shocked face. In the caption, he writes, “I just realized I’m not playing Spider-Man”.

As a newcomer to Instagram, Gyllenhaal did an amazing job revealing the news and ultimately took social media by storm. Other actors have even joined in on the fun. Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds responded, “I just realized I’m not playing Spider-Man either.” Then, Tom Holland wrote, “I just realized I AM playing Spiderman” to which, Mark Ruffalo responded, “Same :(”.

Oh, Hulky, why you have to Hulk smash Spider-Man? 

Black Panther Wins Marvel’s First Golden Globe Nomination in Drama

Black Panther has been making waves ever since its debut, and it looks like it’s back in the spotlight to make history one more time. The film is now the first superhero movie to be nominated for a Golden Globe in the drama category for best picture. It will also be the first time a Marvel Studios film is nominated for the award. Overall, Black Panther has been nominated for three Golden Globes including best original score and best song for Kendrick Lamar’s “All the Stars”.
