There’s a couple of Avengers 4 set pictures to wildly speculate about. Could DC’s Supergirl movie be a period piece? The Bond franchise’s regular scribes could be returning to Bond 25. Plus, new pictures from the returns of Outlander and Supergirl. Spoilers, away!

A new set photo from Gwyneth Paltrow from the set of Avengers 4 will no doubt have people speculating wildly about a Pepper/Tony reunion. Pepperony, by the by, is a very good shipping portmanteau.
Meanwhile, another set photo of Chris Evans sees Captain America sans Infinity War beard (but avec dog), which, when you think about it, is truly the greatest loss brought about by Thanos’ culling of half the universe.

In a new interview with ComicBook, Kristen Stewart revealed the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot will include a worldwide network of Angels in addition to the core trio.
There is a kitsch nature to the last ones that was super fun, but nowadays if you see a woman in combat, everything should be something completely and utterly well within their ability. And [the new trio of Angels] work together really, really beautifully. And there’s a whole network of Angels — it’s not just three — it’s women across the entire globe [that] are connected and helping each other.
The Colour Out of Space
In a recent interview with Birth.Movies.Death., SpectreVision co-founder Josh C. Waller announced the studio is moving forward with Richard Stanley’s adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s notoriously unfilmable The Colour Out of Space, which concerns a brand new colour on the visible spectrum.
It’s moving along. We announced that we were going to be doing it, what, three years ago? Let’s just say that we’re getting a lot closer. Significantly closer. Like, it’s coming up, so I will be busy with Richard on set with that sometime in the near future.
A pinch of salt to take with your shaken but not stirred martini, because The Daily Mail reports EON has once again hired reliable series scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade to rewrite Bond 25, encouraging the duo to make the film’s female characters “more front-and-centre”.

Elsewhere, Elizabeth “Bitsie” Tulloch took to Instagram to discuss her excitement at playing Lois Lane.
Now, at a time when the noble profession of journalism feels under siege, it’s a privilege to join the club of actresses who have played the dogged reporter. As far back as 1938 when she first appeared in Action Comics #1, Lois Lane has defied and subverted society’s expectations of how women should behave. She was portrayed as opinionated, inquisitive, and an unapologetically badass career woman at a time when many representations of women leaned more towards meek and demure.

Excuse me while I fangirl for a moment: I am so excited (thank you Warner Brothers, the CW, DC Comics, @gberlanti, @davidrapaport, Jessica Queller et al) to be playing the iconic Lois Lane on the Arrowverse crossover episodes. And I can’t wait to work with my friend @dpanabaker and of course @tylerhoechlin ???? When I started acting, one of my teachers asked me to watch the screen tests for the role of Lois Lane for 1978’s Superman. All of the actresses were terrific, but it was always clear to me why Margot Kidder won the role: she seemed lit from within, full of joie de vivre. Now, at a time when the noble profession of journalism feels under siege, it’s a privilege to join the club of actresses who have played the dogged reporter. As far back as 1938 when she first appeared in Action Comics #1, Lois Lane has defied and subverted society’s expectations of how women should behave. She was portrayed as opinionated, inquisitive, and an unapologetically badass career woman at a time when many representations of women leaned more towards meek and demure. One of the reasons the character has remained so compelling for the last 80 years is that she has all these formidable, strong-willed qualities, but she’s also vulnerable, romantic, and feminine. A truly modern woman. ❤️

Grace Byers spoke to CBR about her character Reeva Payge’s intentions for the Hellfire Club in season two of The Gifted.
So the vision that she has is that — and I mean, it’s no secret — she fully believes that it is impossible for humans and mutants to live peacefully in the same world. Her experience has told her that. The present has told her that. She has lost lots of people and lots of things due to that. So it has been proven to her time and time again that it’s just not possible, and so she is working for a world and a nation where the mutants can live unharmed and at peace and free.
