Captain Marvel Easter Egg Could Be a Callback to The Avengers

The second trailer for Captain Marvel was released last week and gave fans an even more in-depth look at what to expect from the Brie Larson-starring film when it arrives in theaters on March 8, 2019. If you were focused on Carol Danvers's intense/hilarious dialogue with Nick Fury, you might have missed an important Easter Egg that could link the film to 2012's The Avengers.

In the new trailer, Danvers and Fury are seen stealing a Quinjet that features the P.E.G.A.S.U.S. logo. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe probably remember that Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. is the name of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s secret operation that studies the Tesseract, and is based in a subterranean facility in the Mojave Desert.

The Tesseract was housed in the facility before Loki destroyed it in the original The Avengers. It's entirely possible that the infiltration by the Skrulls, led by Talos, is part of a scheme to retrieve the Tesseract and harness its powers.

It's only a theory at this point, but if it turns out to be true, it would place Captain Marvel into a spot in the timeline that could link it—and Carol Danvers—to other key events that have occurred in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And it could add further credence to another fan theory that suggests Captain Marvel might be the key to defeating Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.

The Office Star Angela Kinsey Would Love to Do a Reunion Special

Whenever a classic TV show is brought back for a revival, it usually splits the fanbase in half. While some people are happy to see their favorite characters return, others are worried about the series coming back in lackluster fashion. And when it comes to the idea of a potential reboot of The Office, the series' cast is just as split.

Steve Carell has been very public about not wanting NBC to bring the show back, but Angela Kinsey is siding with co-stars John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Ellie Kemper about welcoming a potential return to Scranton. The 48-year-old actress, who portrayed Angela Martin on the series, recently spoke with PopCulture.com, confirming she’d love to revisit the show.

"I would definitely be up for a reunion," Kinsey said. "I know a few cast members have talked about a special reunion episode to see where everyone is at. I would love that!"

Although many are torn on the idea of bringing The Office back, most fans would certainly be curious enoug to tune in and see what's going on with the Dunder Mifflin crew. Kinsey is no exception, saying, “I would love to know where these people are! I loved the show, I still love the show. I think it really holds up. I'm so thrilled that new audiences are finding it, so I would love that!"

Will it ever happen? It's hard to say. But while we wait to see if any official announcement is made, you can at least still binge The Office on Netflix and try to imagine what creepy thing Cousin Mose is doing these days.

Harry Potter Fans Don’t Want to See the Movies Rebooted, Surprising No One

Although the Harry Potter franchise has one of the most dedicated fan bases in the world, that doesn’t mean fans are ready to see the series rebooted just yet. Yes, that would mean more movies to feed one’s obsession, but the general consensus is that it would be entirely too soon. Don’t believe us? A new poll might just prove it.

ComingSoon.net asked more than 2000 Potterheads if Warner Bros. should reboot the Harry Potter movie series, and a whopping 72 percent said they’re against it. The website also asked fans if reboots were made, how they should be done. Of those polled, 41 percent voted for it to be a direct sequel about Harry’s son, 35 percent voted for a spinoff TV series, 13 percent wanted another Fantastic Beasts spinoff, and a measly 11 percent showed support for a remake of all eight original films.

While it doesn’t look like a reboot will be in the works anytime soon (J.K. Rowling’s representatives just debunked a report about a TV series), that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for the future. Even star Daniel Radcliffe has entertained the idea, saying he believes he won’t be the last Potter portrayal he’ll see in his lifetime. But as long as Rowling and fans are against it, we probably won’t have to worry about it for a while.
