Marvel is launching into space ahead of August’s Guardians of the Galaxy release, with the company teaming with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration -- NASA to its friends -- and Victory Hill Exhibitions to launch Marvel’s Avengers STATION, a new exhibition promoting the science behind Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Avengers STATION -- which stands for Scientific Training And Tactical Intelligence Operative Network -- is an exhibit at Discovery Times Square in New York City that invites attendees to be trained as SHIELD agents (Clearly, someone didn’t see Captain America: The Winter Soldier) by engaging in specially created STEM-based educational tasks.
In addition to NASA, other organizations working on the project including the Science & Entertainment Exchange program of the National Academy of Sciences, Neuroverse and Gamedesk, with the exhibition revealing the fictional location of Asgard, technological secrets behind Tony Stark’s Iron Man suit and what happens to Bruce Banner neurologically when he turns into the Incredible Hulk.
Marvel’s Avengers STATION begins May 23.

Before he was one of the biggest movies stars on the planet, everyone knows that Dwayne Johnson was simply known as The Rock, one of the most popular superstars in WWE history. Johnson was the first third-generation wrestler to compete in the company, as the son of Rocky Johnson and grandson of "High Chief" Peter Maivia.
Johnson is celebrating his 42nd birthday Friday (May 2) and to celebrate, Zap2it is taking a trip back in time, all the way to 1996. That was the year Johnson made his WWE debut as Rocky Maivia, but before setting foot in the ring he sat down for an interview.
Knowing how charismatic Johnson would eventually become, it's easy to tell the building block are there. It's a far cry from the heights he eventually reached though, as you can see by his more recent WWE appearances.
Rachel McAdams stepped out with her boyfriend, Patrick Sambrook, and we have the exclusive pictures! The actress and her new beau were spotted at a Toronto tennis club on Thursday and shared a sweet kiss before heading inside. The couple looked supersmiley during the outing, and Patrick even offered to carry Rachel's bag as they walked together. Rachel's boyfriend is a fellow Canadian and well-known music manager who oversees singer Sarah Harmer and the rock band The Tragically Hip. This is the first time we've seen Rachel out and about with her new guy since last Summer, when rumors flew that they were dating; Rachel was previously linked to Masters of Sex star Michael Sheen, who is now dating Sarah Silverman. In addition to spending time with her boyfriend, Rachel celebrated a big milestone this week with the 10th anniversary of her breakout film, Mean Girls. The actress, who played queen bee Regina George, reflected on the iconic character in an interview, saying, "At the heart of Regina George was a really angry kid who had no boundaries or guidance." We'll say!
A massive conspiracy involving some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry appears to have gone on for years, completely undetected by everyone.
Everyone, that is, except Richard Dupree.
Dupree, currently residing in the California State Prison in Corcoran, CA, filed a suit last week that leveled some troubling accusations at music’s biggest stars. According to Dupree, Jay Z and Beyoncé have been working with federal authorities including the CIA, FBI, and Department of Homeland Security to spy on him and use satellite technology to steal the lyrics he has been penning from his jail cell.
Even more appalling is that the trio of Rihanna, Chris Brown, and Kanye West have been in cahoots with Mr. and Mrs. Carter, and together according to Dupree’s suit “robbed [him] for hundreds of millions, even billions, in the satellite organization.”
And what, pray tell, does Dupree want in return for this heinous crime perpetrated against him? Honestly not that much. He requests only a small monetary award of $2.4 billion, and that he be released from prison immediately.
And they say there are too many baseless lawsuits these days!

Liz Hurley on date w/ David Yarrow (5/2)
The 48-year-old star was spotted enjoying a rather romantic date night with her new boyfriend, David Yarrow, and the Australian sportsman appeared to be the last thing on her mind.
Showing off her slender figure in a sexy black halterneck dress, Liz was glowing as she emerged from Christies Auction House holding hands with David.
She wore her hair down in a loose curl and teamed her dress with nude patent stilettos, a striped clutch bag and diamond earrings.

Katy Perry has told Selena Gomez to focus on her music following her recent personal dramas.
Eddie Murphy can take some credit for the theme wedding of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star and former Xscape member Kandi Burruss to Todd Tucker. The bride and groom have patterned aspects of their nuptials after Murphy's 1988 cult classic comedy, "Coming to America."
Burruss says the African theme has a special significance. "We first had a real conversation in Africa," she notes about Tucker, who was a producer for the "Housewives" series during a segment filmed in Africa. "So I wanted to do something inspired by Africa for the wedding."
Burruss borrowed ideas from "Coming to America's" famous wedding scene, when Murphy's character Prince Akeem calls off his arranged marriage to instead travel to America to find a bride of his choice.
"I went far with it," she explains. "We had the lions when you came in; we had the rose-petal girls. I had the dude singing 'She's Your Queen to Be.' I wanted it to be full-out 'Coming to America.' It was fun. It was the best wedding ever. Everyone that was there was like, 'This is the most amazing wedding that I have ever been to.'"
Burruss is especially proud of the elaborate ceremony, because she and her team pulled it off in four and a half weeks. The five-episode "The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's Wedding" special, premiering on Bravo on June 1 at 8 p.m., chronicles the planning of the event and all its related drama, including Burruss's mother's conflict with Tucker.
In the trailer for the wedding special, Mama Joyce gets into a heated argument with Tucker's mother, with whom Burruss has maintained a good relationship.
"We get along great," Burruss says. "Todd's mom is fun. She's really nice, and she's like the life of the party."
But Burruss understands why Tucker's mother has taken offense to things Mama Joyce says about her son-in-law, saying: "I guess it was inevitable, somebody speaking badly about your child. Of course you're going to have a problem with that, so her and my mom, they bump heads."
Staying out of the drama is the strategy that has works best for Burruss. "If his mom wants to vent, it's only so much I want to listen to," she says. "I'm like, 'Can we talk about something else?"
Burruss and Tucker's relationship is also the subject of their production "A Mother's Love" that played five sold-out performances in November at the Rialto Center for the Arts in Atlanta. Based on dynamics of Burruss's mother Mama Joyce and her disproval of her daughter's relationship, the play stars Burruss, Eddie Levert, Shirley Murdock, Q Parker, D. Woods, Chandra Currelly, and Porsha Williams, and is available as a DVD and soundtrack.
The superhero sequel -- kicking off the summer season at the box office -- earned an OK B+ CinemaScore from audiences, including an A- among moviegoers under the age of 25. Amazing-Spider Man 2, banking on a strong turnout from families on Saturday, hopes to best the recent $95 million opening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.Director Marc Webb reteamed with stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone to make the $200 million-plus sequel, which features an array of new castmembers, including Jamie Foxx as the villain Electro and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, Spider-Man's friend turned nemesis. Paul Giamatti plays Rhino, a third bad guy.
Comparisons to The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) are complicated since that film opened Tuesday of Fourth of July week, taking in $137 million in its first six days, including $62 million for the weekend. Amazing Spider-Man topped out at $752.2 million globally, successfully relaunching the marquee franchise post Tobey Maguire. Amazing Spider-Man 2 has already earned more $150 million overseas, where it began rolling out two weeks ago. It opens in another raft of markets this weekend, including in China on Sunday.
Summer almost always begins with a Marvel Comics superhero tentpole. In 2012, Marvel and Disney's The Avengers netted an astounding $207.4 million on its first weekend in May, the highest opening of all time for any time of the year. Last year, Iron Man 3 took in $174.1 million; Thor grossed $65.7 million in 2011; and X-Men Origins: Wolverine made $85.1 million in 2009. Spider-Man 3, debuting to $151.1 million in 2007, is the No. 3 May opener of all time after Avengers and Iron Man 3.
No other movie dared premiere nationwide opposite Amazing Spider-Man 2, but launching at the specialty box office is Fox Searchlight's British period drama Belle, directed by Amma Asante and starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Wilkinson, Miranda Richardson, Penelope Wilton, Matthew Goode and Emily Watson.

With the season winding down, and perhaps with the homage being paid to Tito Vilanova, wives and girlfriends, and kinds, were invited down to the pitch before Barcelona’s game against Getafe today.
Messi had son Thiago and girlfriend Antonella down pitchside, and gave them each a big kiss before the game. The score ended 2-2, a result that as good as puts an end to FC Barcelona’s title bid.

We wonder if they served "sketti" at the reception?
Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her family kicked up their heels on Saturday when "Mama June" Shannon's oldest child, Anna "Chickadee" Shannon, married her fiancé, Michael Cardwell.
"I'm so excited to be marrying Michael," Anna, 19, told PEOPLE before the ceremony. "[My daughter] Kaitlyn and I are very lucky to have him, and we can't wait to grow our family. I can't wait to be his wife."
As fans of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo saw in March, Cardwell, 21, proposed to the single mom in true redneck style – with a pizza that had the words "Marry Me" spelled out in pepperoni.
The truck mechanic popped the question to his girlfriend of one year on New Year's Eve at the annual Tallapoosa Possum Drop after first asking Mama June and her husband, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, for their blessing.
Michael said he was ready to be a good husband and father to Anna's daughter from a previous relationship.
"Her and Kaitlyn … I love them with all my heart, I wouldn't trade them for nothing," he said.
The wedding will be seen in all its glory when the new season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premieres on TLC on June 19.

Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon recently shared some new details about his upcoming Marvel sequel which looks like it will live up to fans' expectations.
Whedon spoke to Empire about the main villain in the new film – Ultron: "I'm having a blast with Ultron. He's not a creature of logic - he's a robot who's genuinely disturbed. We're finding out what makes him menacing and at the same time endearing and funny and strange and unexpected, and everything a robot never is."
He also went on to address concerns that the multiple number of villains set to face the Avengers in the upcoming sequel are just there as fan bait.
"I fiercely dislike the idea of just throwing in more people for the sake of doing that..." he stressed.
The reason behind adding so many antagonists is indirectly because of Tom Hiddleston as per Moviepilot, he said.
"But Last time I had all of Earth's Mightiest Heroes versus one British character actor, and I needed more conflict."
In addition to Ultron, Baron Wolfgang von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) are all on hand to ramp up the menace levels.
As for the movie's UK locations, Whedon explained how he plans to use them to give his sequel a fresh look.
"The number of different looks and textures and moods we're getting from the British locations is stupid awesome...because this, palette-wise, is very different. I'm trying to make a different film. Because why would you make one movie twice? That seems weird."
Avengers: Age Of Ultron will release on April 24, 2015.
Liam Payne is simply crushed by his breakup with girlfriend Sophia Smith. The One Direction hunk may be back on the market but that thought doesn’t seem to be easing the pain of his separation from Sophia.
Liam Payne, 20, and now ex-girlfriend Sophia Smith, 20, have split. The couple had been dating for eight months and first met while attending St. Peter’s Collegiate School in Wolverhampton, England. A report says that Liam is simply “devastated” by the separation.
Although Liam is hurting, apparently he, realizes that things are better off this way because he and Sophia spent so much time apart. Currently, Liam is on tour (Where We Are) with One Direction, which kicked off last month.
“He’s devastated that it’s over but it was for the best,” a source told UsWeekly. “They were spending too much time apart and it’s only going to get worse this year — the band going on a super long tour, her getting busier with university,” the source explained.
“Too much long distance,” the source claims. “It was draining for the both of them and led to a lot of arguments. Liam was the one who chose to end it.”
Liam & Sophia Breakup: One Direction Star Hurting Over Separation
After his split with Sophia Liam posted a string of strange tweets on May 2 during One Direction’s concert stop in Santiago, Chile. Here are three of the tweets that felt like the most painful to read:
What do you think, do you think that these two will ever get back together, or do you think that they are broken up for good? Let us know.

Press, Celebrities Gather for White House Correspondents’ Dinner
A smattering of other stars will reportedly be attending the event, according to the Hollywood Reporter, including Robert De Niro, who is promoting a documentary on his artist father, 12 years a Slave director Steve McQueen and actress Lupita Nyong’o, Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron, and Her director Spike Jonze.
It seems like Brandi’s recent move was caused by not being able to afford the rent. Just this week, the star took to Twitter, as usual, to update on her life adventures and struggles.
“Moving out! Not sure where were going but we are in good hands with @MeatheadMovers,” she tweeted. “371 the estimated times I said fuck or fucker today while packing-moving.”
After a friend of hers got hold of the news, Brandi replied, “Interesting what friends give me a hard time when we are stressed out and homeless.”
Now the real reason behind her move is discovered: “Brandi moved out because of an issue with her landlord,” a source told Radar. “He wanted more money.”
On Friday, Brandi, herself, confirmed that it was because of her landlord. She tweeted, “Came home from NYC to a year long home lease that was up and a shady land lord double charging me for 2 wks rent soooo I said #gofuckurself.”
The 41-year-old star is currently in a new Beverly Hills home – “our summertime digs”– that she’s renting until she finds a permanent place. Brandi revealed her monetary struggles in the past and had a very public dispute with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian over paying for child support.
Is the Real Housewives of Miami really cancelled? It sure seems that way, since it was not on the list when Bravo announced the shows that were being renewed for another season.
Even though RHOM has everything that the other franchises have (i.e. catfights, dramas, and backstabbing) it was never as popular as the others, not even after three seasons. So what does Lea Black have to say about it?
"Anybody that tells you they know for sure is sort of rumor mongering. Bravo hasn’t made any official announcements, so I’ll leave that to them. But Miami would only be so proud to showcase the city again.” While Bravo has made no official announcement that RHOM has been cancelled, there is also no evidence that it will return to the network, which leads us to ask another question. If the show is cancelled, will we ever see the glamorous Lea Black again?
The answer is probably so, not only does Lea have connections all throughout Miami, she is also friends with other housewives in the series, like Brandi Glanville and former Beverly Hills housewife, Adrianne Maloof. Lea says, "Most of the girls [from other franchises] that I have relationships with were unrelated to the show.” We may also see her kicking it with RHONJ's Kathy Wakile and RHONY's Ramona Singer since they all share mutual friends.
Lea says, “I want the show to come back, whether I did or not. It would depend on if I’m invited and when the filming would be. But I for sure love the brand, love the show, and love the franchise.”
Teresa Giudice may be facing a stressful legal situation, but you'd never be able to tell by looking at her. The hot Jersey mom is looking as sexy as ever in a new photo shoot.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is keeping very busy these days. She was part of the filming for RHONJ Season 6, has her Fabellini wine business, and (of course) there's the most important thing of all: mom duty. Yet between all of that, she somehow found time to get super glam for a mysterious, "special" photo shoot.
Teresa posted this pic yesterday, May 1, 2014, writing, "Getting Glammified by my glam squad @davidantuneshair & @mspriscillanyc for a special shoot! Stay tuned! Xxx"
Well, there's no question that Tre's "glam squad" did their job well. The star looks super hot with gorgeous curls and dramatic eyes makeup. And what about that top? We can barely see it, but the color looks great. We're loving this entire look.
So, what's the shoot? As Teresa says, we'll have to wait to find out, but based on this pic it looks like there is a guy involved, too. Whatever it is, we can't wait to see the result!
If it seems like Heather Dubrow is defending herself a lot on The Real Housewives of Orange County this season, it’s probably because she is.
When we caught up with the actress, mom and RHOC cast member, she explained why she felt “excluded” from the other ladies this season and why she constantly feels the need to defend herself.
Heather also reveals that she thought she would be friends with Shannon, but that they “hit a bumpy road this season.” However, discovering she had a mutual friend with Lizzie made them fast friends!
Plus, Heather filled us in on recent texts and run-ins she’s had with the former OC Housewives she keeps in touch with and why “the truth always comes out” with new cast members.
In what can only be seen as either a show or solidarity or an "F You" to Brandi Glanville or both, California girls Lisa Vanderpump and Scheana Marie of Vanderpump Rules fame posed side-by-side at a White Party over the weekend:
Lisa told E! that sometimes the drama and backbiting on the show can begin to bring her down--the trick was to rise above the catty news and pretty provocations:
"I still have to work and run my businesses. And I really could do without the emotional BS that this...this show has kind of put me through. Sometimes when things are being really emotionally challenging, he has been there to just say, 'stay true to who you are.' You know, 'Just don't let the others take you down.'"
