It may be part of Darth Disney’s plan to take over the world, but Marvel’s ever-expanding movie universe has taken audiences by storm (just not Johnny Storm).
Captain America: Civil War kicked off Phase Three with some impressive numbers the last two weekends, keeping the number one spot and showing that audiences are still symptom-free of what some are calling Superhero-Fatigue.

In a tale of two Benedicts, we’ve finally seen the addition of a key role in the story of Marvel’s Dr. Stephen Strange. Joining the cast of Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange is Benedict Wong, playing the Doctor’s most trusted ally and companion, Wong.
Benedict Wong was most recently seen in Ridley Scott’s The Martian and Prometheus, as well as Netflix’s Marco Polo. He’ll be joining his other namesake Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role, alongside Rachel McAdams, Scott Adkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amy Landecker, and Mads Mikkelsen in an unrevealed villainous role (which is more than likely the demonic Dormammu).

November is almost like a silver-age DC character when it comes to being a theme month for men’s health issues. Representing “Earth One” is the Movember Foundation, which since 2003 has been encouraging men to grow their mustaches during November in an effort to raise awareness and money to combat prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity.
Representing “Earth Two” is No-Shave November, which concentrates its fund- and awareness-raising efforts on cancer prevention, research, and education. Rather than the ‘stache, No-Shave November merely wants participants to quit shaving completely.
