With spoilers (obviously): here's what Captain America: Civil War's post-credits scenes meant...

This article contains spoilers.

Following in the grand Marvel tradition, Captain America: Civil War features two post-credits scenes. One after the snazzy main credits, and another after the rest of the cast and crew’s names have scrolled by.

Here’s a recap of what these extra scenes are, and our thoughts on their meanings...

Spoilers Start Here

The first post-credits scene

The first post-credits scene shows Bucky voluntarily returning to suspended animation in a laboratory, pending the removal of his soviet trigger conditioning – because he doesn’t want to be a danger to others any more.

Steve is there, and so is T’Challa, the Black Panther. It’s revealed that they’re in Wakanda. T’Challa says "let them try", when Steve warns him that people may come looking for Buck at some point. »

Captain America: Civil War - 8 lingering questions answered

With spoilers, we look at the big questions left dangling by Captain America: Civil War...

This article contains spoilers.

Captain America: Civil War is another triumph for Marvel Studios – but like any film, you’ll come out of it with questions that they maybe had to skim over, didn’t have time to answer, or didn’t think needed answering. And we’re here to try and fill in the gaps.

Spoilers, obviously - so if you haven’t seen the film, stop here.

What are the Black Panther’s powers, and how did he get them?

The latter isn’t discussed in the film as far as we could see, but that’s probably because they’re saving it for the solo outing. In the comics, the Black Panther – whoever that may be at the time - receives their powers from eating a special heart-shaped herb which only grows in Wakanda. »

In news most of us have been willing to happen since that speech in Daredevil season two, Netflix has indeed ordered a Punisher spin-off series starring Jon Bernthal.

Entertainment Weekly has reported the news that Frank Castle is due to return to the streaming service in his own Marvel Netflix collaboration, with Hannibal's Steve Lightfoot executive producing. 

For anyone counting, Netflix already has Luke Cage and Iron Fist and The Defenders new series in the pipeline, along with a second season of Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter.

Line Of Duty: Jed Mercurio on series 4’s “clean slate”

29 April 2016 4:11 AM, PDT

google+

We had a brief word with Line Of Duty creator Jed Mercurio about the series 3 finale, Ted Hastings' future and series 4's "clean slate”…

Warning: contains spoilers for Line Of Duty series 1-3.

It’s a fool’s errand to attempt to predict where Jed Mercurio will take his audience next. The Line Of Duty showrunner has specialised in pummelling expectations from the moment Tony Gates stepped off that hard shoulder. Mercurio has since continuned his sport in such adventures as “Georgia Trotman and the sixth floor window”, “Danny Waldron and the burbling throat” and “Dot Cottan blows this popsicle stand”.

Following the series three finale, we exchanged a few words with Mercurio on its impact, whether Ted Hastings is in for it now, and his relief at having left behind series three’s complicated backstories…

On whether Mercurio regrets wrapping up Patrick Fairbanks’ story so quickly, »

Legends Of Tomorrow episode 13 review: Leviathan

The Legends Of Tomorrow head to the future to confront Vandal Savage in Leviathan...

This review contains spoilers

 1.13: Leviathan 

After twelve episodes spent flitting around trying to stop Vandal Savage’s rise to power, Rip Hunter and The Waverider crew have now decided to confront him right at the last minute – mere days before he murders Rip’s wife and child – instead. It’s a bit like Terminator: Genisys, when Sarah Connor jumps right to the Skynet launch day rather than sticking around in the 1980s to prepare in any way.

Instead of stopping for too long to question the dodginess of this plan (have they really exhausted every available moment in Savage’s centuries of existence? Does the fate of the planet really depend on them pinching a bit of jewellery?), let’s move on to talk about what walked in Leviathan...

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 episode 18 review: The Singularity

The FitzSimmons romance was centre stage in this week’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., and John Hannah made an appearance...

This review contains spoilers.

3.18 The Singularity

Ever since its pilot episode, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. has teased the possibility of Fitz and Simmons getting together. The pair has gone through brain damage and separation since then, and now the showrunners are finally giving them a shot at togetherness. This week we saw them pretty much go on a date, albeit one where they’re actually on the job the entire time. 

This whole plot strand was handled very well, from the cute ‘broken comms’ scene to the big moment at the end of the episode. Romance isn’t something that comic book TV shows always do well, but after three years of build up this felt like a satisfying payoff. Fitz’s event horizon comparison was a particularly strong concept delivered well. »

Vikings season 4 episode 10 review: The Last Ship

Vikings' excellent season four delivers a mid-season finale that leaves fans in delicious anticipation...

This review contains spoilers.

4.10 The Last Ship

In the mid-season finale, the battle was finally closed between Rollo and Ragnar, and honestly, it was surprisingly compelling, even for a series that I already expect to be particularly good at this.

As usual, Michael Hirst and, for The Last Ship, director Jeff Woolnough, stick to Vikings’ battle-filming strategy of using long shots primarily as establishing shots and fades and pulling in very tightly to emphasize the confusion and unpredictability of battle. This keeps distracting special-effects work to a minimum, and nicely captures the meat-grinder of violence that was medieval warfare.

The chaos, however, is not allowed to overpower us (as often happens in contemporary fight scenes, where we are so close to the action, it’s almost impossible to make out—see the Bourne films). Instead, »

Arrow season 4 episode 19 review: Canary Cry

One of Arrow's characters has been terribly misserved by the show, as the latest season four episode demonstrates...

This review contains spoilers.

4.19 Canary Cry

I hate to say it, but the Arrow writers appear to have a fundamental misunderstanding of who Laurel Lance was. Not only have they written her off the show in the middle of her arc but, when crafting an episode pitched as being about the aftermath of her death, they've handed us Canary Cry.

We start with the first of many flashbacks taking place directly after Tommy's death in the season one finale, but before Oliver flew to Lian Yu to hide from his feelings. That he didn't go directly there feels out of character, but then it's not the only thing about these scenes that's going to bother me.

We're tricked into thinking it's Laurel's funeral we're watching, but instead Laurel »

The Flash season 2 episode 19 review: Back To Normal

Is The Flash's Man in the Iron Mask reveal going to disappoint, or can the show still surprise its viewers? Here's our latest review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.19 Back To Normal

There are only four weeks until the second season finale of The Flash, and things aren't looking promising. Rather than giving us a reason to look forward to what's to come, the reveal of Jay as Zoom's real identity has completely deflated the show at a crucial moment in its season. Nothing makes sense, Zoom is no longer threatening and Jay isn't charismatic enough to be this year's Wells-equivalent.

My main problem with Back To Normal, predictably, was Caitlin. I'm obviously not thrilled that she's been kidnapped yet again, but I went over that last week, and the outcome of that cliffhanger not only takes an entire episode to become apparent but also means Zoom is an absolute idiot. »

Sylvester Stallone and Antoine Fuqua unite for TV mafia drama

Omerta – a mafia-focused television series from Antoine Fuqua – has snapped up Sly Stallone for its lead....

Here’s an exciting one. The legendary Sylvester Stallone is teaming up with action-directing maestro Antoine Fuqua for a new TV series about the mafia. The show is called Omerta, and its based on a novel of the same name from The Godfather author Mario Puzo.

Here’s the synopsis for the book, courtesy of Goodreads...

“To Don Raymonde Aprile's children he was a loyal family member, their father's adopted "nephew." To the FBI he was a man who would rather ride his horses than do Mob business. No one knew why Aprile, the last great American Don, had adopted Astorre Viola many years before in Sicily; no one suspected how he had carefully trained him... and how, while the Don's children claimed respectable careers in America, Astorre Viola waited for his time to come. »

The Omen: prequel movie now in the works

The First Omen will tell the story before the original The Omen movie...

If you’ve run out of sequels to make, and you can’t reboot it, what do you do next?

What about a prequel?

That’s the plan for 20th Century Fox with The Omen, as it’s now been revealed that it’s working on The First Omen, which will be produced by David S Goyer and Kevin Turen.

The First Omen is set to be directed by Antonio Compos, off the back of his Sundance success, Christine. It will be a supernatural horror, penned by Ben Jacoby. It’s likely to be independent of the currently-running tie-in TV show, Damien, that Fox has on the small screen.

It’s unclear yet when The First Omen will shoot, but we’d imagine Fox will want to get it moving this year if it can. »

Tomb Raider: Alicia Vikander is the new Lara Croft

Alicia Vikander will be the brand Lara Croft, in the upcoming Tomb Raider movie reboot...

It’s been quite a year for Alicia Vikander. She snagged her first Oscar, as Best Supporting Actress for her terrific turn in The Danish Girl. She’s been filming Jason Bourne. And now she’s snagged the much-sought lead role in the Tomb Raider movie reboot.

Daisy Ridley had been the apparent running favourite for the role, although her Star Wars schedule did throw her involvement into some doubt. Whether she was offered the role is unknown, but what is certain is that Alicia Vikander will be taking over from Angelina Jolie in playing Lara Croft.

The new Tomb Raider is being directed by Roar Uthaug, with Graham King producing. Our guess is that the plan is for MGM and Warner Bros – who are co-producing the film – to press for a start of production this year. »

Fox pulls out of Comic-Con, fearing piracy

20th Century Fox, following footage leaks in preview years, is no longer to attend San Diego Comic-Con...

Things may be changing in the world of San Diego Comic-Con. In recent years, it’s been the big event where studios go to announce projects, and premiere footage from upcoming blockbusters. Yet following footage from Deadpool landing up online last year, 20th Century Fox has elected to pull out of the event, citing piracy as the reason why.

Studios have become uneasy about material filmed with smartphones and such like hitting the web, to the point last year where Warner Bros quickly decided to put a Suicide Squad sizzle reel online officially, when it hadn’t been planning to.

Fox, though, is the one that’s pulled out, taking with it expected preview material from Assassin’s Creed, The Wolverine 3 and possibly the final Maze Runner movie.

Line Of Duty series 3 episode 6 review

Line Of Duty cements its status as the most thrilling drama on television with a stunning finale to a stunning series…

This review contains spoilers.

Like many a modern idiot, around my wrist is a special watch that monitors my heart-rate. It syncs with my phone and shows me a graph of what my pulse is doing at any given moment. If I were ever to kill someone, I suspect it could be used to incriminate me. Murder must play havoc on the cardiovascular system.

Fifteen minutes before the end of Line Of Duty’s series three finale, you’ll see a significant spike on the graph. My body was sitting lazily on the sofa; my heart was doing laps of the park. This might be the first occasion on which I hand over my TV reviewing responsibilities to a Fitbit.

Huge Spoilers: We look at what the fallout of Captain America: Civil War means for the future of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe...

This article contains big spoilers for Captain America: Civil War.

It’s finally here! Captain America: Civil War is out in the UK, and now the time has come to start analysing the film in excruciating detail. There’s certainly a lot to digest: allegiances have been shattered and certain Avengers are now fugitives. Rhodey is on crutches and Cap is on the run.

So, what does the superhero slugfest of Civil War mean for the McU writ large? How will the fallout of this film drip-feed into the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Here are some thoughts...

The Accords

The Sokovia Accords are now a thing that exists. Hundreds of countries and a fair chunk of the Avengers signed the agreement during Captain America: Civil War. »

In which we look at why summer isn't fun, games and Glastonbury for all. In fact, some of us become She-Hulk...

Welcome to Geeks Vs Loneliness, our weekly spot where we talk about issues, problems, stresses and demands that are affecting sometimes a few, sometimes many of us. We try and come up with a few ideas that may be of us too, but as we've always said, we don't - worse luck - have any magical elixir in our cupboard.

This week, we welcome back the brilliant Jane Roberts...

Never mind winter, summer is coming. Blue skies, green meadows and hopefully just a little bit of sunshine for our inclement land. What’s not to look forward to?

Well, for the hay fever sufferer, pollen. A sniveling, sneezing, coughing, overheated season of misery. Windows shut, medication lined up in regimented order. Steroid drops for eye – check. »

Line Of Duty: creator Jed Mercurio interview

We spoke to the Line Of Duty creator about series 3, Lindsay Denton, The Caddy, Jimmy Savile, tension, thrillers and more…

Warning: contains spoilers for Line Of Duty series 3, episode 5 (Nb interview took place before the finale aired. Here's a spoiler-filled post-finale chat).

As Line Of Duty viewers might expect from the man who’s turned the police interview into an art-form, Jed Mercurio is a very measured, practiced interviewee. He gives precise, categorical answers unfurred by the usual hesitations and rambling false starts. Bring up the perception that Line Of Duty’s series two finale was hard to follow and he explains, patiently, that the most reliable evidence we have suggests otherwise. He speaks fluently in terms of suppositions, anecdotal evidence, arithmetical means and statistical outliers. When he completes a given response, he simply stops talking.

Mercurio’s voice only became heated twice in the next six thousand words. »
