Will Audrey lose another man she loves in a New Year tragedy or will Lewis reveal his true colours and end up being bumped off? Step away from those hair straighteners, Auds, hes not worth it…

Christmas in prison for Sally?

Viewers have been hoping that Sally might come home for her turkey and stuffing with the family after her prison ordeal but according to Sally Dynevor, we might have to rule this out as things are looking bleak.

She warned Inside Soap: I dont think shes going to have a happy Christmas. She thinks shell be home, and it just breaks my heart to think that she might not be at home on Christmas Day. Prison food!

Liz left for dead

Christmas is going to have a shocking sting in the tail for poor Liz as she is run down and left for dead in a shocking hit and run incident – but will she survive? And who is behind it? Fans will likely suspect Jenny or even the malicious fake daughter, Hannah.

But its Johnny who looks set to end up cuffed by police – have they got the right culprit?

Explosive boat horror

In a very dramatic start to 2019, it looks like the lives of Simon and Peter will be in serious jeopardy as reports have emerged that they will be caught in a blaze which takes hold of a boat. Keen on joining the navy, Simon is at the centre of the disaster.

Can Peter save his life?

Roys scandal

After losing her beloved Cerberus, Evelyn is on a mission to hunt the pooch down and Roy is along for the ride – whether he likes it or not. But when the police see his car sitting suspiciously in a layby, he stands accused of a pretty inappropriate crime.

Can Roy talk his way out of this potential scandal and will Evelyn be reunited with Cerberus?

Kates major mistake

Desperate to have a baby, Kate is keen to have Robert as a sperm donor for herself and Rana – despite Rana being less than keen on starting a family at this stage. But things will get even worse when Kate makes the mistake of trying to seduce Adam as a plan B.

Thankfully, hope lies on the horizon and the return of Imogen acts as a catalyst to get the fractured relationship back on track so a 2019 wedding may still be on the cards!

A significant Christmas for Carla and Peter

Carla may have denied her feelings for Peter but fans know different and relations between them are set to thaw once more when she hands him a touching and significant gift this Christmas before the pair then cross paths at new year.

Could they kick off 2019 as a reunited couple?

Abi loses everything

After discovering that Tracy was behind the sabotage on Michelles car, Abi has to take the rap for Seb when he unleashes an angry attack on the florist. As Abi is left shocked to then be jailed for 16 weeks, she fears she has lost her twins for good.

The MCU looks set to expand (Picture: Marvel Universe LIVE!)

The president of Marvel, Kevin Feige, has said that hundreds of superheroes could join the MCU after the huge deal with Disney last year.

The MCU looks set to get a lot bigger.

The truth is Im excited for all of the [Fox properties]. And its not just the marquee names, you know, Kevin revealed while at the Golden Globes earlier this week.

He added to MTV News: There are hundreds of names on those agreements and the fact that Marvel is as close as we may ever get now to having access to all of the characters is something Ive been dreaming about for my almost 20 years at Marvel.

Its very exciting.

Back in December, the 45-year-old Marvel boss also opened up about the ending of Avengers Infinity War, as he explained that he never planned for the good guy to win.

We did Infinity War and Endgame at the same time, but those have been the longest gestating movies weve ever made.

Four years now, almost five years. And it was always about delivering on the promise that we had set up. And the way the world received Infinity War was amazing, it was exactly what we wanted.

Kevin enjoyed playing around with the idea of leaving the movie on a cliffhanger with villain Thanos seemingly being the victor, as he and his crew were tired of the predictable storyline of the good guy winning.

Speaking to Varietys Playback podcast, Kevin added: And that ending, which we had been working on for many years, and I do remember people, on all of the movies weve made and Im sure on many of the movies well make in the future, whenever the good guy wins, which is often – good guy, good woman, good hero wins – they go, “Eh, its kind of predictable. Good guy wins.”

Just a thought though, Kevin, we could sure do with a win at the end of Endgame.

Is Groots name a bit more literal than we thoght? (Picture: Marvel)

We may be waiting for a long time for Guardians Of The Galaxy 3, after director of the first two films James Gunn was sacked from the franchise.

But at least we have plenty of fan theories to tide us over.

A Marvel fan has suggested that Groots name isnt actually Groot, and we are shooketh.

Redditor CheMc questioned if Groots name is Tree, as this is what Thor calls him, and hes one of the only people who understands Groots language after learning it on Asgard.

They wrote: I realised that when Thor introduces Groot to Captain America he introduces him as “Tree” rather than Groot, which got me thinking what if Groots name is actually Tree and that he is merely only able to say “I am Groot” leaving the Guardians to believe that is his name, but Thor actually understanding the language knows that to be wrong.

The Reddit post continued: Thor also calls Rocket by the name of rabbit the entire film but I did all of Thors scenes and at no point does anyone call him Rocket which means unless Rocket told Thor his name which doesnt really seem like something he would do Thor would give him his name while Groots name is one of the only 3 words he can say. It seems weird that Thor would incorrectly introduce his friend when he would know his name.

Thor has a habit of referring to people by their surname like “Stark”, “Rogers”, “Banner” and so on which means its possible that Groots full name is actually Groot Tree and Thor is referring to him by his surname.

In the subtitles rabbit is not capitalised while referring to Rocket as rabbit while Tree is, implying it is a proper name or even a title.

Interesting – very interesting.

James Gunn previously shot down this rumour, tweeting: His name is not Tree – however, theres no confirmation that this is canon.

One theory about the fan favourite was previously confirmed – that the Groot in Vol 2 is actually a descendant of Groot, after the first Groot sacrificed himself in the first movie.

While GOTG 3 has been wiped from the schedule due to the director issues, Marvel boss Kevin Feige this week maintained that a third film will be made.

Speaking to MTV, he said: Guardians will happen. When, where, how? For a later time.

As fans, weve come up with a theory or two that addresses what we think may happen, or at the very least, hope to happen in the next Avengers saga.

With Endgame only a mere four-and-a-half months away, Captain Marvel is going to quench our information thirst before we catch up with the rest of the crew battling the wake of Thanos mighty snap.

Samuel L Jackson plays Nick Fury in the Avengers franchise as well as the Captain Marvel prequel spinoff, and whether or not the SHIELD leader meant to or not, he may have just revealed a superpower punters didnt know the Cap M had which might come in handy.

Which, of course, brings about a whole new wave of theories.

So according to Jackson, as well as Carol Danvers being a regular legend with the might to take the Titan Thanos down, shes also a time traveller.

Shes pretty much the strongest character – in terms of someone with powers are able to do things – in the Marvel universe, he said of his compadre, played by Brie Larson. So, for Carol Danvers to be that person and for Brie to become that person, its gonna be a dynamite thing.

He added of the upcoming Endgame and how Captain Marvel will slide right on in there: I mean, [the Avengers] are up against some really, really tough odds right now – we saw throughout Infinity War – so now we know that we need something thats as powerful as Thanos, continues Jackson.

And at some point, well find out how powerful she is and all the things that shes capable of. Shes one of the few people in the Marvel universe that can time travel, so…

CLANG! Sorry, shall we pick up that massive spoiler for you, Sam?

The whole time travel palaver has been floating about the MCU for some time, with many a punter proffering the theory the Avengers will use the means to claim back half the population obliterated at the end of Infinity War.

Its also been a long-held theory Scott Lang AKA Ant-Man (Played by Paul Rudd) will use the Quantum Realm to get about the various times and realities to stitch everything and everyone back together.

Guess well just have to wait and see.

Captain Marvel is in cinemas 8 March, 2019 and Avengers: Endgame is in cinemas April 28, 2019.
