1. Who’s going to play Jessica Jones on Netflix?

As you guys may know, Marvel has four TV series on the way on Netflix. We’re getting Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, the woman who gives up her superpowers to start a detective agency. This week we learned who might play Jess in the show. Krysten Ritter, Alexandra Daddario, Teresa Palmer and Jessica De Gouw are all in the running. Who would you like to see?

2. Disney’s Cinderella is No Damsel in Distress

This week we got the first trailer for Disney’s Cinderella and she’s not waiting around for her Prince to come. Well, he’s there and he’s Robb Stark from "Game of Thrones", but he’s not her sole reason for being. This Cindy (Lily James) is taking care of herself … with a little help from her fairy godmother (Helena Bonham Carter).

3. Snoopy and the Gang are Back in Peanuts!

The new trailer for the CGI Peanuts movie is out and it’s adorable. We don’t know much about the story, how many times Charlie Brown will get the football pulled out from under him and what Lucy is up to, but we do know that Snoopy will be flying around on his Sopwith Camel (a.k.a. his doghouse) as the WWI flying ace! So cute!

5. We’re getting a young Jean Grey and Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t very far away and this week we learned that not only will the film be set in the 1980s, but that we’re getting younger versions of fan favorites Jean Grey and Cyclops. We’ve got big names for Jean, meaning we might see a lot of her. Chloe Grace Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Seinfeld are all up for the role. For Cyclops, we have the lesser known British soap actor Ben Hardy, The Golden Compass' Charlie Rowe and Homeland's Timothee Chalamet. Who do you want to see in the roles?

6. Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer May Show Us the Bad Guy

This is still a rumor, but it looks like we’re going to see at least a teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the next four or five weeks. We’re also hearing that we’re going to get a look at the villain. The reports out now say he’s called either the “Inquisitor” or the “Cyborg.” They also say he’s going to look like one of the royal guards from Return of the Jedi.” What do you want to see in the trailer?
