Fans can now confidently add two more supporting characters to the list of those we know survived Avengers: Infinity War. The Marvel film broke hearts everywhere, as we saw Thanos destroy half the universe with just one snap. Ever since then, we’ve been trying to figure out who made it out alive, and who might be brought to life.

Brandon T. Snider, author of the new book Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War: The Cosmic Quest, Volume 2: Aftermath, shared photos of the front and back covers in celebration of the book’s release, and (perhaps inadvertently) spilled some major info.

The plot summary on the back of the book not only confirms that Dr. Erik Selvig and Darcy Lewis survived Infinity War, but also that they are lead characters of the new book. It’s unlikely the new book will have any serious spoilers for Avengers 4, but the new information has been revealed just as a new fan theory surrounding Selvig popped up on the Marvel Studios subreddit, according to ComicBook.com.

The theory, posted by Redditor mushbert, states that Erik Selvig holds the key to defeating Thanos, pointing out that Selvig has predicted several events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming true before, which means he might’ve known the snap was going to happen. This is just the one of many ideas as to how our favorite characters could come back and ultimately win against The Mad Titan.

Netflix's Stranger Things Season 3 Video Is Full of Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

Stranger Things's third season was full of many surprising twists and turns, not to mention some awkward teen romances. While the gruesome Mind Flayer and the evil Russians were no doubt terrifying, the show kept its sweet touch of nostalgia due mainly to the fact that the Hawkins gang is now smack-dab in the middle of the 1980s.

It doesn’t take a keen eye to see many of the series's '80s references, particularly in the latest season. With scenes taking place at the new mall, references from the decade—including Hot Dog on a Stick, Sam Goody, and Back to the Future—are all part of the setting. However, creators Ross and Matt Duffer wanted to pay true homage to the decade, and thus left Easter eggs throughout the season that you likely missed.

Luckily for us, as BGR reports, Netflix has just released a video explaining the hidden references (with the New Coke debate, Mrs. Wheeler’s erotica novel, and Hopper’s Tom Selleck-inspired Hawaiian shirt among some of our favorites).

Check out the full video above and see what you missed!

Disney's Lady and the Tramp Remake Will Star a Mixed-Breed Rescue Dog Named Monte

Following the success of The Lion King, Lady and the Tramp will be the next classic Disney movie to be revamped in 2019. And while most of Disney's live-action remakes boast star-studded casts, the lead in this upcoming film is totally unknown. That's because Monte, a mixed-breed dog from Phoenix, Arizona, spent his pre-Hollywood days living in animal shelters.

As AZ Central reports, Monte will make his film debut as Tramp when Lady and the Tramp releases alongside the launch of Disney+, the company's upcoming streaming service, on November 12. In the original 1955 animated movie, Tramp was portrayed as a mutt who lived on the streets, so instead of looking for a purebred dog to portray the character, producers stayed faithful to the source material.

Monte lived in a New Mexico animal shelter before transferring to HALO Animal Rescue in Phoenix. When the filmmakers went there in search of a star for their movie, he instantly won them over. Like Tramp, Monte is a mixed-breed dog, but the shelter doesn't know exactly what his background is, other than being part terrier. Despite his scrappy appearance, Monte is very well-behaved. He knows how to sit, walk on a leash, and he's friendly with everyone he meets, according to the shelter.

The Lady and the Tramp crew adopted Monte in April 2018, and earlier this month, Disney released the first promotional image of him for the film. It features Monte snuggling up with his co-star, Rose, who plays Lady. True to the original, Lady is portrayed by a purebred cocker spaniel. Though you likely don't recognize the dogs on the poster, you may have heard of the voice actors who will bring them to life: Justin Theroux is playing Tramp and Tessa Thompson is Lady.
