Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

Ewan McGregor throws water on Obi-Wan movie rumours. Jon Favreau may be returning to the director's seat at Marvel. 10 Cloverfield Lane's director heads to Black Mirror. Plus more Power Rangers filming, even more footage from Civil War and a new clip from Agents of SHIELD. Spoilers get!

Obi-Wan Kenobi being struck down -- and becoming more powerful than we could possibly imagine -- is a defining moment in the Star Wars saga.
