RUMOR: Beyoncé to Join the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Let's be real, this rumor from The Daily Star probably has exactly zero truth to it, so for now let's say there's a slight chance we could be welcoming Queen Bey to the Avengers.  

Apparently, Beyoncé moved from New York to LA earlier this year in order to reboot her acting career, and the MCU might be just the place for her to get her feet wet.  An unnamed executive at Disney was quoted as saying "we would love to have Beyoncé on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel’s existing catalogue of comic book characters."  The characters she's rumored to be in the running for are Boom-Boom, Blink, Tigra, or Hawkeye.

As hot of a Tigra Beyoncé would be, these are all pretty ridiculous options.  If she were to join the MCU, who would you want Beyoncé to play?  One of these ladies?  Someone else?

I Ship It: Luna Lovegood and James Potter are a Real Life Couple

Headcanon accepted!  Harry Potter actors Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) and Robbie Jarvis (James Potter) are dating in the muggle world.  Yesterday, Evanna posted a photo of the pair for Robbie's 29th birthday, referring to him in the caption as a "little babe":

She talks about their relationship in other photos, even referring to him as her "boyf". The pair spends quite a bit of time together, doing activities that look like great date material:

It's only a matter of time before Luna/James fanfiction becomes a thing, though I suppose there will have to be some time travel involved.  Maybe Luna sees him in the Mirror of Erised and through the magic of non-canon imagination, he steps out to greet her.  Though if Luna ends up with James, would Harry cease to exist?  Be careful fic writers; with great power comes great responsibility. 

Rumor Has It: Gwendoline Christie is a Chrome Trooper in Star Wars VII

We've known for a while that Brienne of Tarth actress Gwendoline Christie would be in Star Wars VII, but Vulture is reporting her role is that of the Chrome Trooper.  Not much is known about this character, but if it is Gwendoline under there, here's hoping we get to see her without the chrome dome too.

Game of Thrones has already got the hand ampuation thing down; maybe Jaime can join Brienne for an epic saber fight?

Hey, a fan can dream, right?
