Captain Marvel

It’s almost the weekend, which means we have a whole week of entertainment news to catch up on. Not unlike the week before, there is always something new happening or announced in the movie and television industry. This week is no different. Instead of searching top stories in the entertainment industry I can tell you the Top Entertainment News for February 1, 2019.

Captain Marvel TV Spot shows a possible New Avenger

This Captain Marvel TV Spot might debut a new superhero– Monica Rambeau. The spot shows Captain Marvel, portrayed by Brie Larson, high-fiving a young girl, who could be Monica Rambeau. Monica Rambeau was the second superhero to bear the name Captain Marvel and even lead The Avengers for some time. Rambeau initially was Captain Marvel and then went by codenames Photon, Pulsar, and Spectrum, in that order.

Ben Affleck is out as Batman

Ben Affleck fulfilled his dream to portray Batman and now passes on the torch to a new actor. We have no idea who will put on the black cape in Matt Reeves’ upcoming film. The new Batman film will take place years before Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. I think everyone has ideas about who the new Batman should be. Check out this Screenrant article on who might be Batman’s replacement.
