Here's a daily dose of what's heating up the internet:

Emilia Clarke, Mother of Pranks
Never fall asleep around Emilia Clarke. When the GoT cast needed a quick cool down during that fiery Dothraki scene from last week's episode, a few members would go and rest up before facing the inferno again. Unfortunately, resident Khal Joseph Naufahu learned the hard way that you should never, ever, shut your eyes in The Mother of Dragons' presence. In the behind-the-scenes clip above, you can see Clarke smearing some sort of sticky dessert on the poor guy, before attempting to shove her spoon in his mouth. Naufahu blames it all on the fire, assuming "she was delirious from all the propane on set."

Elton John Boards 'Kingsman 2'
After early rumors, legendary English singer-songwriter Sir Elton John has officially landed a role amongst several A-listers in Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle. No word as to if he'll be playing his eccentric self or a secret covert operative, but the 69-year old did take to Instagram to promote his casting with a new poster set with very '70s-esque red, white, and blue star glasses. Set to open June 16th, 2017, this movie just keeps getting better and better

Marvel Needs More Female Villains
Iron Man 3's writer recently revealed that the original script included the likes of a female villain, with the idea later scratched in hopes of making more money off a male toy figurine to go with the film. Late Show host Stephen Colbert discussed the matter on his show, calling the MCU a straight-up 'sausage fest' and questioned why legendary movie villains, like Darth Vader and Doctor Doom, couldn't have been a woman. “Are you saying a woman can’t be a doctor, or be an evil techno-sorcerer?," Colbert said. "They better fix this in the next Fantastic Four movie, and there better not be another Fantastic Four movie.” Listen to him sound off in the clip above.
