Take the Marvel Cinematic Universe as an example. Now approaching its 10th anniversary, the lucrative, interconnected franchise has become the crown jewel of Marvel Studios, spawning must-see event movies (Captain America: Civil War) and spellbinding spinoffs (Thor: Ragnarok) as if they’re going out of fashion.
It recently placed a bow on the production of Ant-Man and the Wasp – just as Captain Marvel gears up for its alleged start in January – but not before one final batch of set photos escaped onto the interwebs. First spotted by UK tabloid the Daily Mail, these candid images find Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer – Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne – enjoying a romantic stroll along the beach. The latter is also seen with flowing grey hair, which may hint at the fate of Pfeiffer’s newcomer.
