Avengers: Infinity War
Hawkeye fans worried about the character getting the shaft in recent promotional materials will be delighted to learn the character is “getting a lot of cool new stuff,” according to prop master Russell Bobbitt.
Hawkeye’s getting a lot of cool new stuff.
That’s right. We’re developing a lot of interesting new stuff for him… both in something bow-related but some new gadgets that he has in addition to the bow.
Christopher Markus discussed the addition of Captain Marvel to the MCU with Coming Soon.
Well, (we’re) super excited to have her — for one thing… That’s a power scale that right now doesn’t exist in the MCU, and she’s in some ways the closest to Captain America, which is a weird, now rare kind of character which is a person who’s right and knows they’re right and doesn’t really want to hear it when you tell them they’re wrong. So, with all these flawed, f*cked up people like Quill who’s a mess and Tony who’s a massive ego all contorted, it’s fun to get another person with a clear vision in there going, ‘Shut up.’
That movie (the Captain Marvel solo movie) does not exist yet so we’re following up on something that is good intentions at the moment.

Meanwhile, Barbara finds out just how far her new friends are willing to go for her in the all-new “A Dark Knight: That’s Entertainment” episode of GOTHAM airing Thursday, April 12 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Following last night’s finale, Chris Carter spoke to TV Guide to field various questions concerning the episode, and where the series is headed following the departure of Gillian Anderson:
I haven’t really grappled with that. Certainly, there are other people grappling with it on other levels, meaning the corporate level. Fox was just sold to Disney. I think there’s so much that is unpredictable and unforeseen, as you’d expect of The X-Files.
