Ryan Coogler Takes On Black Panther
It's still a long time coming, but after we bore witness to Black Panther springing to action in Captain America: Civil War, the warrior from Wakanda will get his own film in 2018. While the film's details are still under wraps (and probably a little underdeveloped), we at least know who will helm the newest addition to the MCU: Ryan Coogler. With his only credits including Fruitvale Station and Creed, it might make you wonder if Coogler is ready to step it up to the big leagues of a Marvel film. But given that his first two films did pretty well in the eyes of the box-office, and the public, we may have our answer already. There's still a lot of time for him to get a grasp on life inside the MCU, but until then, let's hope for great things when we see Black Panther hit the big screen for the first time on May 6th of this year.

'Hello' from James and Adele
This Wednesday, Late Late Show host James Corden will go on the ride of his life for his best 'Karaoke Carpool' segment yet. Music sensation Adele joins Corden for renditions of 'Hello,' 'Rolling in the Deep,' and other hit tracks as they cruise around the streets (of what appears to be London, England). Adele seems to be giving some serious side-eye out the window in parts of the clip, so our guess is that fans are flipping out/noticing her and Corden's antics, but to be honest, this looks like something pretty hard to miss.

Beware 'The Witch'
Just in case you're still not over the trailer for The Conjuring 2, a new trailer for The Witch just dropped and it will most definitely f*ck up your Tuesday. The premise is still a little iffy, but it appears that this very goat-centric film places a girl against her family (and quite possibly the entire village) after she's been accused of witchcraft. Weird things start happening, eerie music starts playing, and we really don't want to see what happens next. Check out the trailer below and see for yourself:
