Avengers: Endgame co-writer Christopher Markus has revealed that Marvel isnt planning on reviving dead characters for future reboots.

Our hearts have well and truly broken.

In an interview alongside directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and co-writer Stephen McFeely, Markus made his feelings on resurrecting characters clear after the deaths of Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).

Its the nature of the MCU. Its not a place where you can reboot one and suddenly Iron Man is 15 years old and everyone else is still the same age, he explained.

The characters have to pass out, and the universe has to still stand. So if youre going to take people off the board, theyve got to go for real.

However, the writer ackoweldged that you can never say never about these things, adding to Empire: Granted, these are movies. I understand that somebody has made some kind of announcement that has the word Vision in it, so I mean…

Well keep our last, tiny shred of hope, then.

To make those tragic deaths that little bit more heartbreaking, it was recently revealed that we almost got closure on the Black Widow and Bruce Banner relationship.

Seeing as there was so much to take care of and a pesky Thanos to send back to where he came from, writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus explained they simply ran out of time.

That wasnt before they gave it a red hot go in the previous installment, but those scenes ended up on the cutting room floor (and wed now pay very good money for them).

We certainly wanted to continue the story, Mcfeely told the Empire podcast. In Infinity War we have scenes…wrote them, shot them…of [Hulk and Black Widow] sort of hashing that out. “Youve been gone, Ive moved on” – that kind of stuff.

And, despite the Infinity Saga being fully concluded, it doesnt mean the cast have completely let it go, after Men In Black made an Avengers reference with a Thor Easter egg.

While we thought it was a treat to have Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) donning the Men In Black suits, it was a nod to his hammer that gave us all the goods.

In one scene (that was in the trailer, too, granted) there is a mighty reference as Chriss Agent H battles a blue alien.

In an attempt to defeat the annoying grub he grabs a tiny hammer that has nothing on Thors, in a movement much like that of the Avenger who is known for summoning the weapon.

Is the new Lion King a musical and will there be new songs in the soundtrack?

The original Lion King movie is something of a classic, with many people being able to remember the words to the Elton John-penned songs 25 years on.

When it was announced that Disney would be remaking the movie, it would have been easy to worry that the new line-up (and the music that went with it) wouldnt be able to do it justice.

As soon as Beyoncé came on the scene, however, film lovers breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that the whole thing was in safe hands.

Her voice takes centre-stage in much of the new soundtrack, and shes also released an album called The Lion King: The Gift, which is supposed to take people on a journey into the storyline. The Gift features African singers and producers, in order to reflect the setting of the movie.

If youre worried, however, that you arent seeing as many songs as youd hoped from the original soundtrack, never fear. It is definitely a musical, and youll still have some of your favourites.

Both The Gift and the OST are separate albums although they do have a few songs in common.

The movie will still feature classic songs like Circle of Life and I Just Cant Wait To Be King. Of course, Hakuna Matata will also be there.

Beyoncés track, Spirit, is a welcome new addition, and you can listen to The Gift alongside all the classics to get the full experience. Heres the tracklist for you.

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Anistons new Netflix film Murder Mystery has done amazingly well – a record-breaking 73 million households watched the movie in the first month of its release.

Now its probably because of the stellar cast, the great writing and the engaging story-line, but we think its for another reason:

Adam Sandler is looking hot.

Hear us out. The 52-year-old jester scrubs up rather nicely in the comedy mystery, what with his black tuxedo and his aviator sunglasses and that moustache.

According to reports, 30,869,863 accounts watched Murder Mystery in its first three days, giving it the biggest opening weekend ever for a Netflix film, with over 13 million of those accounts in Canada, and almost 17.5 million accounts worldwide.

A Netflix spokesperson confirmed that the statistics, which had first been shared on Twitter by an account called Netflix Is A Joke, is accurate to Variety.

In the Terminator universe, there is only one timeline. If you change something in the past, the time wave moves forward and changes the future, he said.

Cameron dialled in on a Skype call and revealed that he sent Linda a long email outlining the pros and cons for why she should join the project.

I think the key point in the pro column was people love you in this character, he said.

It was so iconic and I think the fans just want to know whats she like now? Whats her life been like in the meantime?

The panel shared a teaser for the film which focuses on a Terminator chasing after good guys before Sarah arrives to save the day.

When they ask who she is, she says: My name is Sarah Connor. Aug 29, 1997 was supposed to be judgment day.

My son and I stopped that. We changed the future. Saved three billion lives. Youre welcome. Since then, I hunt terminators. Enough of a resume for you?
