Actress Hayley Atwell has revealed that she will reprise the role of Agent Carter in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, despite being over 100 years-old in the current storyline.

We saw the actress as an elderly Peggy Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, where Steve Rogers was visiting her in a hospital where it was revealed that she was unfortunately suffering from dementia.

She should be around 100 now, but it’s possible that Joss Whedon may have plans for a flashback scene where Captain America begins to reminisce about his time with her character in the ’40s where it all began.

The actress reveals that she was out one night with some of Marvel’s cast and crew and then she and Joss Whedon struck up a conversation about how her character could end up in The Avengers’ sequel when Whedon got excited about the idea.

Atwell says, “We went out drinking one night and he was like, ‘You know, it would be great to write something for you.’ And I was like , ‘Yes, Joss, it would! It would be amazing!’”

So it seems Whedon actually wanted to write something for her character, but with Whedon hovering over all of Marvel’s projects, we wouldn’t be surprised if he intends on linking her character’s story arc from Age of Ultron to her new TV show titled Agent Carter.

Rumors of the spin-off began after Atwell did such an incredible job as Peggy Carter in the first Captain America. Then after Marvel released the Agent Carter One-Shot, there were fans dying to see a female-driven Marvel movie or television show.

The show was officially ordered on May 8, 2014, and will debut on ABC in January 2015 during the season 2 mid-season break of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in an attempt to create a crossover audience.

We’d love to see Agent Carter come to the small screen, but it’d be even better to see her as young Agent Carter in a flashback in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Maybe Captain America will need a reminder as to why he does what he does and a key flashback scene with Peggy giving him a pep talk would be a perfect spot for Atwell to appear.

We look forward to seeing Atwell as Agent Carter in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which will hit theaters May 1, 2015. Our only disappointment is that her character is unable to have a larger role due to her age in the current Marvel storyline.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
