Don't Expect to See Much Avengers: Endgame Footage Until the Film Premieres

After the heartbreak that was Avengers: Infinity War, the only hope Marvel Cinematic Universe fans had was that the Avengers series would find a clever way to bring our favorite superheroes back for a fourth and final film. Although we still aren’t sure how—or if—our favorite characters will be brought back to life following The Decimation, we know that we'll at least be seeing a lot of them again in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame.

The first trailer, released in early December, features a solo Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, reflecting on all the damage Thanos did and the friends he lost. We then see Captain America, The Hulk, and Black Widow, each of them seeming similarly defeated following the events of the last film. Hawkeye and Thor are also briefly shown. The tone is expectedly dark.

The only redeeming part of the trailer is seeing Paul Rudd's Ant-Man come to the front door at the end. The heroes ask if it is an old message they are seeing on their monitor, but Black Widow confirms it's happening right now—all but confirming the theory that Ant-Man will be using the Quantum Realm to time-travel and hopefully prevent the events of Infinity War.

That brief glimmer of hope has MCU fans clamoring to see more. And while they should expect a second trailer for the film at some point, that doesn't necessarily mean they'll see much more footage from the new film.

While talking to MTV on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday, January 6, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was asked to comment on the rumor that the Endgame marketing campaign will keep much of the footage under wraps. While he didn’t give a direct answer, he did allow that the rumors are “somewhat accurate.” Although this isn’t a firm confirmation, it gives us reason to believe we probably won’t see too much of the film before its release, which isn’t too surprising, as the studio won't want to answer too many of the questions we all have before the film's premiere on April 26, 2019.

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.
