1. AVENGERS: ENDGAME Writers Reveal What They Would Do To Get SUPERMAN Right In A Movie | Comic Book Movie

"I certainly think that Captain America shows that there are certainly ways to do a really good Superman movie in this day," McFeely explained. "You know, you don't have to dirty him up. You don't have to get rid of his earnestness. The Christopher Reeve Superman is one of my favorite movies, and so that's one we certainly borrow from all the time." 

Every time someone says Superman is boring I remind them of Captain America. Different suit. Same moral code.

2. ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Cast Talk About Going Beyond ‘Voyager’ And Canon In Season Three | Trek Movie

"The beauty of going into the future – boldly, I might add – is that everything is new," Sonequa Martin-Green said. "Everything you will see will be new. We were able to shoot in Iceland for the first episode of season three and you are going to see a world we have never seen before. We are not in Terralysium. We did not end there like we planned. So, now we have to figure out where we are, who we are and when we are, at this point now. It is very enervating to be able to build canon moment to moment."

4. New York City Council Votes To Name a Street After Stan Lee in The Bronx | GeekTyrant

Stan Lee, the co-creator of the Marvel Universe, will be getting a street named after him in the Bronx. The news comes from the New York Post, who says that the New York City Council voted to approve a proposal to co-name University Avenue between Brandt Place and West 176th “Stan Lee Way.” 
It should be on the corner of Excelsior Way.

5. Scarlet Witch And Rocket Almost Had A Road Trip Subplot In Avengers: Endgame | We Got This Covered

“There weren’t terribly outrageous ones, there were a lot more boring ones," co-writer Christopher Markus said. "You can go to the Triskellion – it’s a building… There was an iteration where Wanda was alive, she hadn’t been blipped… Wanda and Rocket drove a car from the Triskellion to Doctor Strange’s house, then used the doorway to go to Kamar Taj and get [the Stone].”

9. George Lucas Gave Jon Favreau Some Interesting Advice For The Mandalorian | We Got This Covered

“We had a long talk with each other. One thing he said to me was, ‘Remember, Jon the real audience for all stories and all myths is the kids that are coming of age.’ We enjoy the stories as adults, but really, storytelling is about imparting the wisdom of the previous generations onto the children who are becoming adults, and giving them a context for how to behave and how to learn the lessons of the past without making the mistakes on their own. That’s the hope, that you can teach them how to avoid all the hardship but garner all the wisdom." - Jon Favreau
Aiming towards children has worked for Star Wars for decades.

10. Scarlett Johansson on the genre of Black Widow and its influences | Jo Blo

 "It's pretty gritty, but it's also surprising… it's kind of in its own genre, I think," Johansson said. "Some of the movies that we talked about, we talked about The Fugitive, we talked about Logan, we talked about Terminator 2."
Movies about people fleeing and strong women. Sign me up.

Here’s the breakdown of how every Spider-Man movie has performed at the box office, courtesy of Box Office Mojo. (And no, we’re not counting Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, or Avengers: Endgame here. Solo Spidey films only.) 
Spider-Man: Far From Home – $1.005 billion and counting (estimated)
Spider-Man 3 – $891 million
Spider-Man: Homecoming – $880 million
Spider-Man – $822 million
Spider-Man 2 – $784 million
The Amazing Spider-Man – $758 million
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – $709 million
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – $375 million
It's sad that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is so low on the list.
