It only took 25 years, but Rocketeer fans rejoiced with the news of a reboot. Although the project is in early development, it's hard not to get excited. The new storyline will take place six years after the original Rocketeer with a female pilot taking the helm. We'll be keeping a close eye on more news as it develops. Read more about the writers and producers at Entertainment Weekly.

5. Marvel's Infinity War = 1 movie

It was announced this week that the two movies previously announced as "Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2" will now be one movie known as "Avengers: Infinity War". The date for release remains May 2018, with an untitled forth Avengers movie slotted for May 2019.
