Halle Berry's Next Role May Be...
The sequel to 2014's completely underrated Kingsman: The Secret Service is slowly assembling a stacked cast of A-listers, so what's one more going to hurt? According to Deadline, the former X-Men star and Oscar winner will dabble in the art of espionage if she signs on to play the head of the CIA. If this all goes to plan (and we hope it does), Berry will have to share some screen time with fellow badass leading lady, Julianne Moore, who is said to play a more villainous role. Kingsman 2 is set to hit theaters June 2017. 

Jennifer Lawrence Is Ready for Action
Fresh off the release of a new X-Men: Apocalypse poster that focuses on the titular villain and his Four Horsemen, we now have a look at the newest team of X-Men set to save the world - with Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique front and center. With all of the time alterations from Days of Future Past, it makes sense that the typically evil shapeshifter is now taking charge for the good guys and setting an example for newcomers Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Nightcrawler. This can only make for an epic showdown once the last installment in Bryan Singer's X-Men trilogy hits theaters on May 27th. 

Is This New Spidey The Best Yet?
The latest trailer for Captain America: Civil War dropped Thursday, and with it came our very first look at Marvel's new interpretation of Spider-Man. Two other actors have donned the red and blue suit before, but it's Tom Holland who is getting the most praise for this take on the web slinger. Execs and directors in the MCU have seen Civil War, calling it a film of epic proportions, but it's Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn who recently took to Twitter to express his love for Holland specifically. Is he that good? We'll have to wait and see.
