In early October, Chris Evans sent out a tweet announcing that he had officially wrapped filming on Avengers 4—then seemingly confirmed that he was done with Captain America forever. Once the initial fan freakout subsided, the speculation began about who could be Evans's ​replacement.

Besides obvious choices like Bucky Barnes and The Falcon, one Marvel actor believes the next Captain America could very well be a woman. Frank Grillo, who played Brock Rumlow (a.k.a. Crossbones) in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War, spoke to Larry King about the possibility of replacing Evans's Captain.

“I don’t know, but there’ve been rumors that [the next] Captain America could be African American," Grillo stated. “It could be a woman. You know? So they’re looking.”

​​Although it seems all but confirmed that Avengers 4 will be Evans's last outing as the superhero, the actor did try and backtrack on his tweet, seemingly realizing the spoiler he dropped.

While at ACE Comic Con in Chicago, Evans ​told fans, "I know I did tweet something that made a lot of people think that it was in some way a spoiler, and I should clarify that, regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would’ve tweeted the exact same thing."

“That last day of filming really was a very emotional day and it was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies—this unbelievable tapestry—and you feel a lot more emotions than I think even I thought I’d feel, and I felt it was appropriate to share the gratitude," Evans continued. "I know it had a ripple effect, but I am neither confirming nor denying anything."

If you've ever fantasized of taking a vacation that would make the cast of characters from The Golden Girls proud, you'll soon have the chance to make your dreams come true. In early 2020, Flip Phone Events and the cruise line Celebrity Infinity are launching a Golden Girls-themed cruise that brings the classic 1980s sitcom to the western Caribbean.

As CNN reports, the new cruise, called Golden Girls at Sea, leaves from Miami, Florida—the home of Rose, Dorothy, Blanche, and Sophia. For five days, the ship will take cruisers on a relaxing trip through the Gulf, stopping in Key West and Cozumel, Mexico. While onboard the ship, guests will have the opportunity to take part in several Golden Girls-inspired activities, including a Shady Pines craft corner, Dorothy's bingo, Golden Girls trivia, and karaoke at Blanche's favorite pickup spot, The Rusty Anchor. And, yes, there will be cheesecake.

The Golden Girls premiered over 30 years ago, but the fabulous foursome hasn't lost its popularity. Even though the show has ended, the ladies can still be spotted on apparel, candles, board games, and even their own cereal box. Their new themed cruise may be the most luxurious Golden Girls-branded experience yet.

Golden Girls at Sea sets sail from Miami on February 24, 2020 and returns on February 29. Rooms start around $987 per person for a standard cabin and go up to $7657 for the top suites. Unlimited drinks are included with every ticket.

Harry Potter Fans Can Now Live at Hogwarts

Still waiting for your Hogwarts acceptance letter? Still dreaming of the day you can walk through the Great Hall doors for the first time? Well now you can, because there are newly constructed luxury apartments right next to the real-life Great Hall from the Harry Potter movies.

Fans can now live out their ultimate Wizarding World dreams, as two luxury flats have been made in the heart of the castle at Royal Connaught Park in Bushey, Hertfordshire, home of the original Great Hall.

According to the Mirror, Rightmove—a UK-based property rental website—has shared an ad for two-bed apartments within the Victorian castle, which is home to the Great Hall from the first three Harry Potter films.

The property used to be the home of the Royal Masonic School for Boys. Now, thanks to recent renovations, Potterheads can rent out the new, unfurnished apartments for $2800 a month.

Fans who can scavenge up enough knuts, sickles, and galleons will not only have the Great Hall to visit but also 100 acres of parkland that surrounds the property, a private leisure center complete with saunas and pools, a tennis court, and 24-hour concierge and shuttle services.

The site served as a set for Harry Potter, but also for movies like Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, Hot Fuzz, and the long-running TV series EastEnders.
