Marvel’s Phase Four has done a lot of work to set up the formation of the Young Avengers down the line, but to date, the studio has yet to confirm that it’s actually building up to the team’s arrival. Still, it looks like we can now rest assured that Hailee Steinfeld will be back as Kate Bishop pretty soon, anyway, as Disney Latino has confirmed that she’ll be a key player in Phase Five.

Here’s an unexpected cross-franchise crossover. John Boyega had an interview crashed by his old Star Wars co-star Daisy Ridley, who used the opportunity to quiz him on whether he’s got any plans to work with Marvel Studios. Sadly for fans of the Finn actor, who has been rumored for various superhero roles over the years, Boyega promised that he hasn’t. However, he did throw Ridley under the bus in the process, suggesting that she’s secretly be in the running for Spider-Woman. Theorists, start your engines.

Remember the days when fans would be at each other’s throats over whether they sided with Team Cap or Team Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War? Well, some apparently miss those good ol’ times, as the r/MarvelStudios subreddit community recently attempted to start Civil War II (sorry to remind you of that awful comic book event) by reopening the debate over whether the Sokovia Accords were a good idea or not. Interestingly, with the benefit of hindsight, it seems that most are on Steve Rogers’ side.

Check back tomorrow for our next roundup of the biggest Marvel news around.
