Do the new Lego sets spoil every major event in Avengers: Infinity War? Could Riz Ahmed mutate into a giant spider in Venom? Will Mike Flanagan direct a sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining? All this, plus new images from X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Aquaman and more! 2017, your Angel of Death awaits...and The Mask of Morning Spoilers is lifted!


Venom

A new set photo of Riz Ahmed dressed in business attire has led some to speculate he’s playing Dr. Carlton Drake, the CEO of the creepy, survivalist Life Foundation — and the man who eventually mutates into the supervillain, Homo Arachnis.


Doctor Sleep

Speaking with Lilja’s Library, Mike Flanagan revealed he’s interested in following Gerald’s Game with an adaptation of Doctor Sleep, Stephen King’s 2013 sequel to The Shining.

[T]he ones I’d want to do the most are Doctor Sleep and Lisey’s Story. In both cases, it’s because I identify with the protagonists so much. Lisey’s Story is a stunning piece of work, a beautiful exploration of marriage. And who wouldn’t want to venture back into the world of Danny Torrance?
