FIRST LOOK AT AVENGERS: ENDGAME IS POSITIVE: Avengers: Endgame is set to drop this weekend, and the film will wrap up the plot lines for the Marvel Universe’s previous 22 films. The film premiered in L.A. Monday, and while attendees didn’t spill any spoilers, they did seem pretty psyched—and emotional—after the film. Angie J. Han tweeted that the film “is an immensely satisfying payoff, not just to Infinity War but to all the films that came before. This is why the MCU. (And I say this as someone who was not especially enamored of Infinity War, FWIW.)” Rob Keyes echoed the sentiment, tweeting: “Just watched Avengers: Endgame. I don’t believe hyperbole is possible for this movie. It is the ultimate Marvel movie in every way possible and words cannot describe how epic it is. And yes, Hawkeye is a rockstar.” Do you have your movie ticket yet?

EMILIA CLARKE GIFTS WORLD WITH GOT FAMILY PORTRAIT: Emilia Clarke captioned a photo featuring herself and Game of Thrones co-star Kit Harington, “The family portrait” on Instagram, alluding to their incestuous relationship (she’s his aunt) on the hit HBO show. She told EW of their relationship: “The related thing, to her, is so normal. She could have easily married her brother. It's not a thing. It's a thing for Jon, but let's just forget about that. The main thing is we're up for the same promotion and I've been working for it for my entire existence. This is my whole existence. Since birth! Dany literally was brought into this world going: RUN! These f–kers in Westeros have f–ked everything up. Now it's, ‘You're our only hope.' There's so much she's taken on in her duty in life to rectify. There's so much she's seen and witnessed and been through and lost and suffered and hurt to get here … and Jon doesn't even want it!”
