Amazon has found a familiar star for its adaptation of The Boys. Get a look at Elastigirl’s new suit in more Incredibles 2 footage. Kevin Smith returns to Central City in new pictures from The Flash. Plus, a new look at the BBC’s adaptation of The War of the Worlds. To me, my spoilers!

Avengers/Ant-Man and The Wasp
In an interview with THR, Marvel Studios executive Victoria Alonso stated she “cried” seeing Michelle Pfieffer on set, possibly revealing Janet Van Dyne has a role in either of the two upcoming Avengers films – presumably the latter, given that Scott and Hope are expected to show up in Avengers 4.
Marvel’s next film is Avengers: Infinity War. With a budget upwards of $300 million [$AU391 million], is it the biggest movie you’ve worked on?
Infinity War is a dream come true. Everybody has had other journeys, but this is sort of the moment in time where their journeys collide. We didn’t have everyone there all the time. That only happened for two or three days.
Were you there when everybody was there?
Yes. I’m not going to lie to you, I cried. You say to yourself, “Huh?” You have big stars talking about other big stars as in, “Gasp, is that Michelle Pfeiffer? It is! Oh, was that so-and-so?” It’s like their little Hollywood moment, which I found lovely and endearing.
Elsewhere, Ant-Man and The Wasp have made the cover of Disney’s Official Fan Club magazine, D23.
