Avengers 4: Big Quantum Realm hint as Marvel boss Kevin Feige promises 'we will explore'

The end credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, released over the summer, saw Scott Lang stuck in the Quantum Realm after his nearest and dearest were killed off by Thanos’s Snap from Infinity War.

Speaking in the book Marvel Studios: The First 10 Years, Feige said: "At the end of Ant-Man we followed Scott Lang into the Quantum Realm for the first time.

"We were beginning to peel back the onion that would later be completely peeled back in Doctor Strange as we go into the multiverse. So that was our little test into that.”

He added: "But now the Quantum Realm is a whole other territory that we can play with to tell our stories.

“This Quantum Realm is much larger than we ever imagined, and there are all sorts of adventures to be had at that level, which perhaps we will explore in another film."

Is Avengers 4 that other film? We will have to wait and see.

It comes as the wait for the movie’s official title and its trailer continues.

Previous alleged leaks suggesting it would be called Avengers: Annihilation have not been confirmed or debunked by the studio at this stage.

However the Thanos conundrum is resolved, there are other MCU adventures waiting in the wings.

For one, Spider-Man: Far From Home has already finished filming - with Tom Holland back as Peter Parker.

Parker was, as fans will know, one of the fatalities of the Snap in Infinity War - so how he comes to be fighting fit for a whole new movie remains to be seen.

    Supermodel Karlie Kloss turns coding passion into a summer coding camps for girls

    ’ve slept past the sunrise any day this week,” Kloss told ABC News’ Chief Business, Technology and Economics Correspondent Rebecca Jarvis in an interview for “Nightline.” </p><p> On this particular morning, Kloss is coming off of a 16-hour day filming Project Runway and is getting ready for an event with Adidas, one of her many brand ambassadorships. </p><p> Despite the long days and early mornings Kloss embraces it all. </p><p> “That’s kind of my life but the good thing is I really love what I do,” said Kloss. </p><p> The 40-time Vogue cover girl got her start at just 13-years-old when she was discovered at a mall in her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. She was approached by two modeling scouts, Jeff and Mary Clarke, the husband and wife duo behind Mother Model Management, who also famously discovered Ashton Kutcher at The Airliner Bar in Iowa City. </p><p> In Kloss’ case, they were recruiting for a charity fashion show. </p><p> “I was just at the mall with my friend and I was wearing Birkenstocks and just living my life at 13 years old…And at that time I literally had no interest in that [modeling] or really idea of like what the fashion industry was. It just wasn't in my world.” </p><p> Kloss said she realized quickly “it really was something I really enjoyed” and it didn’t take long for her career to take off. The modeling scouts introduced her to agents and by the time she was 15-years-old she was walking in her first major runway show. </p><p> “That fall when I started my freshman year of high school I got an opportunity to walk in New York Fashion Week for Calvin Klein and I was 15 years old. Like literally had started high school two days before and it just put me on the map.” </p><p> But while she was living the life of a glamorous and worldly model, back home in St. Louis, pre-social media, she was just an average teenager. </p><p> “I was 15 years old, I was tall and lanky, no boys were paying any attention to me. I felt totally out of place in St. Louis, just like every teenager does. And it kind of was like this secret alter ego that I got to live out and build a career. And no one really knew about it back home.” </p><p> “I was going back and forth between, like, sitting in my chemistry class, getting on a plane that night right after school going to Paris, walking Dior Couture opening the show…and then going back home and like needing to like still turn in my five paragraph essay,” said Kloss. “But it was really amazing dual world and life that I lived and still live, I guess.” </p><p> Today that “dual world” includes another passion -- coding. On the surface it’s one that might seem unexpected, as the couture-clad super beauty doesn’t necessarily fit the stereotype of a hoodie-wearing coder, but Kloss has had a love of math and science from the beginning. </p><p> As the daughter of an emergency room physician, she looked up to her father, fascinated by his ability to problem solve and help people using science. </p><p> “I definitely thought being a doctor would be my kind of career path. I always was really fascinated by science, by math and I loved the idea of being able to help people with a skill set,” she said. </p><p> “I met Karlie, I was doing a class for two of my friends and they asked if she could join...She showed up on day one, really took to it and outperformed my two friends,” Flombaum told ABC News’ Rebecca Jarvis. </p><p> After that first lesson in 2014, Kloss was hooked. </p><p> “That whole week, and more and more, she started emailing me if we could spend time on the weekends coding and that sort of snowballed,” Flombaum said. </p><p> But eventually, Kloss wanted to do more than just learn herself. She wanted to figure out a way to give other women the skill that she found so valuable. With the help of Flombaum, she started a scholarship giving 21 teenage women across the U.S. the opportunity to take the Flatiron School’s two-week pre-college program coding class, the same one that Kloss took when she fell in love with coding. </p><p> “I have this audience of young women across the country around the world, and I really care about the message that I'm sending them both through my words and my actions. And I thought, you know what, I would love to offer them something more meaningful than just a picture backstage at a runway show.” </p><p> Just one year after starting her own coding journey, Kode With Klossy was born. </p><p> Today the free two-week summer coding camp has grown to 50 camps across 25 cities across the U.S. girls ages 13 to 18 can apply to attend through the company’s website and be placed in classes of 20 where they learn to code real-life apps. </p><p> “It’s really amazing because I feel like I really have seen them grow so much, beyond just learning code...They’ve been able to grow as humans. I think it’s such an intense moment in life being in your teen years and high school and you’re kind of figuring out so many things and I see these girls kind of come into their own power, come into their own confidence, and they realize all that could be possible in their lives, in their careers, and it’s just so fun and amazing to watch. I get goose bumps, I really do. They’re my little sisters.” </p><p> In the beginning, the young coders first learn the basics of the new language and then collaborate to design and build a new app. They were in the final stages of creating applications targeted at real world problems when “Nightline” stopped by. But it’s not just the curriculum that these young coders love, it’s the relationships they are building with other young women in technology. </p><p> Many of the coders we spoke to said that the camps provide a supportive place to grow and thrive. Valeria Torres-Olivares, 18, began learning to code in her sophomore year of high school. But she said the past two summers she has spent at Kode With Klossy have “been a rejuvenating experience having amazing girls to work with and talk about code with.” </p><p> “You don’t feel comfortable asking your peers questions because most of the time they are male and most of the time, whether they are mean to you or not, they do make you feel like you are less than them,” Torres-Olivares told ABC News’ Rebecca Jarvis. </p><p> Many of the female coders “Nightline” met say they are outnumbered by their male counterparts at school. </p><p> “It’s just like three girls in the front row and then the rest of it is all guys. Basically feels like a guy’s club. So being here feels like a safe space,” 16-year-old camper Ivana said. </p><p> Sofia Ongele, 18, who started learning to code at the Kode With Klossy camp in 2016, added that one of her favorite things about the program is the network of women she can connect with to talk about coding. “I could just hit up my girlfriends any time that I wanted to and be like, ‘hey, help me out here.’ So that was really great.” </p><p> When creating the camps it was important to Kloss to focus on women. Today, while women make up more than half of college-educated workers, they only make up 25 percent of those in STEM fields, according to the U.S. Department of State. </p><p> “There are multiple problems too, I think, why more girls don't get excited about tech or see themselves in that industry. A -- barrier to entry of not having opportunities, not having a class to even take to learn the skills. And B -- what society tells us or the image that we see and I think we need more visibility around women in the industry and they exist.” </p><p> With over 16 million followers across her social media platforms, Kloss is helping to increase the visibility around women in technology, showing that the stereotype surrounding STEM aren’t real. </p><p> “Everybody expected me to be one thing, to be on the catwalks or in magazines...And so I definitely think a lot of people noticed when I started coming out and talking about my love of science and math and more nerdy passions,” said Kloss. “I think that me standing up and kind of identifying my nerdy passions has ignited that for so many other girls and that impact is something that really drives me to want to keep being true to who I am, and supporting other young women.” </p>

We're not making any current predictions."</p><p>Zelnick was answering a question on how he thought Red Dead Online would compare to the release of GTA Online.</p><p>This is great news for fans as it means the mode has not been delayed beyond November.</p><p>Red Dead Redemption 2 saw a series of delays push back its release date until October 2018, and there may have been fears something similar could happen to the online beta.</p><p>However, it looks like the development team are on course to provide a big update in the coming weeks.</p><p>Making predictions for when a beta may start is always a little dangerous, but we would suggest the last week of November as a good candidate.</p><p>Somewhere between Tuesday, November 26 and Thursday, November 28, seems like a good bet.</p><p>Red Dead Online has the chance of building yet another huge multiplayer mode for fans of Rockstar Games titles to enjoy.</p><p> See today's front and back pages, download the newspaper, order back issues and use the historic Daily Express newspaper archive. </p>

  •  Justice Department and CNN spar over Acosta's press pass

    Justice Department and CNN spar over Acosta's press pass

    Wednesday afternoon from lawyers representing CNN and the Justice Department. The news network is seeking an immediate restraining order that would force the White House to return Acosta's press credentials — which grant reporters as-needed access to the 18-acre complex.</p><p> Kelly said he would announce his decision Thursday afternoon.</p><p> Acosta has repeatedly clashed with Trump and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in briefings over the last two years. But the dynamic devolved into a near-shouting match during a combative press conference last week following midterm elections in which Republicans lost control of the House.</p><p> Acosta refused to give up a microphone when the president said he didn't want to hear anything more from him. Trump called Acosta a "rude, terrible person."</p><p> The White House quickly announced that Acosta's White House access would be revoked.</p><p> The CNN lawsuit calls the revocation "an unabashed attempt to censor the press and exclude reporters from the White House who challenge and dispute the President's point of view."</p><p> The Associated Press joined with a group of 12 other news organizations, including Fox News, in filing an amicus brief Wednesday in support of CNN.</p><p> "Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized," said a statement by Fox News President Jay Wallace. "While we don't condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people."</p><p> On Wednesday, Justice Department lawyer James Burnham argued that Acosta was guilty of "inappropriate grandstanding" and deserved to lose his access over "his refusal to comply with the general standards of a press conference."</p><p> Burnham also pointed out that CNN has dozens of other staffers with White House credentials, so excluding Acosta would not harm the network's coverage.</p><p> The network's lawyer, Theodore Boutrous, contended that Acosta was being singled out for his body of work, not his alleged rudeness during a press conference.</p><p> "The White House has made very clear that they don't like the content of the reporting by CNN and Jim Acosta," Boutrous said. "Rudeness really is a code word for 'I don't like you being an aggressive reporter.'"</p><p> Prior to Wednesday's hearing, the White House had maintained that it has "broad discretion" to regulate press access to the White House.</p><p> A pre-hearing legal filing argued, "The President and his designees in the White House Press Office have exercised their discretion not to engage with him and, by extension, to no longer grant him on-demand access to the White House complex so that he can attempt to interact with the President or White House officials."</p><p> Trump himself, in an interview published Wednesday, was uncertain how the court fight would end, saying: "We'll see how the court rules. Is it freedom of the press when somebody comes in and starts screaming questions and won't sit down?"</p><p> Trump told The Daily Caller that "guys like Acosta" were "bad for the country. ... He's just an average guy who's a grandstander who's got the guts to stand up and shout."</p><p> The White House's explanations for why it seized Acosta's credentials have shifted over the last week. Sanders initially explained the decision by accusing Acosta of making improper physical contact with the intern seeking to grab the microphone. But that rationale disappeared after witnesses backed Acosta's account that he was just trying to keep the mic, and Sanders distributed a doctored video that made it appear Acosta was more aggressive than he actually was.</p><p> On Tuesday, Sanders accused Acosta of being unprofessional by trying to dominate the questioning at the news conference.</p><p> Both Sanders and Trump are named as defendants in the CNN suit, along with Chief of Staff John Kelly and Randolph Alles, director of the Secret Service.</p><p> Follow Khalil on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/Ashrafkhalil </p>
