Game of Thrones's Michiel Huisman on Whether We'll See Daario Naharis Again

With the upcoming eighth and final season of Game of Thrones on the horizon, actors from across the entire spectrum and timeline of the HBO fantasy hit have been asked at least one of following two questions: Is your character coming back? And is your character going to survive? Actor Michiel Huisman, who played sellsword Daario Naharis from seasons four through six, was recently asked the former.

Since HBO is particularly good at getting its actors to stay silent, his response was about as unhelpful as you might expect. "I can't wait ​to see the finale!," Huisman exclaimed excitedly in an interview with Digital Spy. "I don't know what to say. I shouldn't spoil anything so I'm not gonna tell you."

We last got to see ​Daenerys's bodyguard/lover in the season six finale, when Daenerys instructed him to steward the cities she'd freed in Essos while she went on her campaign to conquer Westeros, much to his chagrin. While he hasn't been seen since and only got a single reference in season seven, it's presumed that he and his Second Sons cabal are still holding down the fort in Dragon's Bay.

It's entirely possible that Daenerys will call him and his soldiers back to her side, particularly if she needs them to counter the Golden Company, hired by Cersei to shore up her Lannister forces. Of course, that would put him in direct conflict with Daenerys's new squeeze Jon Snow.

Guess we'll have to wait until next year to find out.

Doctor Strange 2 to Begin Filming This Year, According to Reports

The fate of our favorite Marvel heroes was very unknown after ​Avengers: Infinity War, and now we have even more questions about what's to come after next year's Avengers 4. As of right now, Spider-Man: Far From Home is the lone movie slated to be released after the fourth film in the Avengers series.

However, now we know there is another movie expected to begin production soon. Speaking at Fan Expo Vancouver on Saturday, Benedict Wong, who plays Wong in the MCEU, teased that he will not only reprise his role for Avengers 4, but also for a Doctor Strange sequel which should begin filming at the end of the year.

Earlier this year, ​reports came out that Benedict Cumberbatch was receiving a major payday to reprise the role of Dr. Strange. And screenwriter C. Robert Cargill has already ​provided some details of his plans for a potential sequel.

"Marvel movies work in threes. They also work outside of their threes. Some of the better Marvel films have more than one villain in them," Cargill, whose involvement with the sequel has yet to be revealed, stated. "Me and Scott have not laid the groundwork for it but what I can say is that I have a feeling that whatever Nightmare is involved with, Baron Mordo, being somebody who considers himself the defender of natural law will have something to do with it."

If Wong's teasing is to be believed, then we can expect to hear something about Doctor Strange 2 pretty soon.

New Avengers 4 Tease From the Russo Brothers Has Marvel Fans Confused

​There are few things the Russo Brothers enjoy more than teasing Marvel fans as we await the release of Avengers 4. Last month, they posted a photo of Joe Russo sitting in the middle of the movie's set, which sparked speculation about the film's unknown title.

Now, another cryptic tweet from the Russo Brothers is out and it's even more puzzling than the last one.

​​Captioned "#wrapped," the photo is just an image that's crazy bright. It's confusing, but leave it to Marvel fans to speculate on its meaning.

​​Some believe it's War Machine's proton cannon ...

... while others are actively manipulating the photo to see if the meaning is hidden in plain sight.

We'd like to give ​a huge shout-out to the fans who are admittedly as confused as we are.

Whatever this image means, we are sure the Russo Brothers won't be the ones explaining it. Their
dedication to keeping mum on any details about theirs films is admirable—even if their stars aren't so great at secret-keeping.

Avengers stars have ​accidentally spoiled a few things about the movie.

Earlier this month, Chris Evans ​announced that the fourth Avengers movie would be his last as Captain America.

​​If the brothers plan to make their tweets even more ambiguous as the release date nears, they can keep them. Our eyesight is going to suffer is we keep squinting this hard.
