To complete his return, Trigon must have Raven’s assistance – and to accomplish his goal, he spreads his demonic forces across the globe, infiltrating the minds and bodies of the Justice League to do his bidding.

10 Things That Should Happen In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

guardians of the galaxy
Marvel (via Screen Rant)
One of the coolest things about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the way characters pop up in each other's movies - like Falcon appearing in last year's hit Ant-Man. 

Now imagine if Marvel did even more crossovers, with characters from its TV shows like Agents of SHIELD or Jessica Jones showing up in movies with the likes of Captain America.

Sarah Cooke (writing for Screen Rant) has put together a fun wish list of Marvel crossovers - along with casting wishes, like Angie Harmon playing She-Hulk. If you're a Marvel fan I think you'll enjoy the list.

Check out the Marvel wish list below, and let me know what you think.

SPIDER-MAN: Here's How Spidey Is Introduced In Captain America: Civil War (Maybe)

spider-man
Marvel Comics
A new rumor has allegedly spilled the beans concerning Spider-Man's debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This rumor sounds like it could be spot on, so if you want to be surprised when you see Captain America: Civil War (May 6) read no further.

Still with me?

Alrighty then, here's what we know about Spidey's debut, via Geek.com. It seems (again - this is unconfirmed) Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is a big Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) fan and Peter was inspired to be a superhero by Iron Man. When Tony learns about Peter and his abilities the Avenger offers to build the teen an armored suit. Tony then enlists Peter to fight on his side in the superhero throwdown.

Sounds like a pretty cool way to introduce Spider-Man, yeah?

GOTHAM: Could Jerome And Other Dead Characters Return?

gotham

Since Gotham's currently on hiatus, news about the Fox drama has been light, but we have a bit to report today. At a recent comic convention, Gotham star Ben McKenzie hinted that death on the series might not be as permanent as we think. The actor responded to a question about the supposedly deceased Jerome by suggesting we might see the murderous villain again.

Here's what Ben McKenzie told the fans at the Wizard World Convention about bringing back Jerome -
"Not only can we but we might. I can’t definitively say yes. I’ll put it this way: almost nobody that you’ve seen go away is dead. They are all able to come back."
We'll have to wait until Gotham returns on Feb. 29 to see if any "dead" characters return to make Jim Gordon's life even worse.
