So many Avengers 3 rumors, so little time!
Marvel Studios might be splitting Avengers 3 into two parts! We don’t know if it will be a single story split across two movies or if one part would bring the Avengers into a much larger world with the Guardians of the Galaxy or even Spider-Man, but it will certainly be a fascinating take on the beloved Marvel super team. Some of the most popular Avengers might be benched for Avengers 3 so they can play in a follow-up of epic proportions. Take all of this with a grain of salt, but do be prepared for an exciting line-up for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling sparked some Twitter excitement with a series of tweets thought to be about the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them: ”Very busy at the moment working on a novel, tweaking a screenplay and being involved in @lumos campaigns. Back when I’ve finished something!” We cannot wait to see what she’s been working on:
