Here’s everything you missed in entertainment over the weekend and others that unravelled while you slept – and are still buzzing today.
A Maleficent sequel is on and Chiwetel Ejiofor is in it!
The British-Nigerian actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor who is known for his roles in “12 years a Slave” and “Doctor Strange,” joins Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning to add more talent to the Disney live-action adaptation. Robert Lindsay (Wimbledon) has also joined the cast.
Maleficent II picks up a few years after the original film and, according to Comic Book, will focus on the complex relationship between Maleficent and the eventual Queen. New alliances will be formed and new adversaries will be also be introduced.
She just made a comeback with a Grand Slam match at the French Open on Tuesday – her first since giving birth to her daughter in September – and she wants to continue her winning streak with the launch of her very own fashion line.
“The customer is a girl or a woman who believes in herself, or wants to believe in herself; maybe she’s feeling unconfident that day,” Williams told WWD.
“And someone that is unapologetically themselves, and that maybe they stand out; maybe they stand out because they are strong or they’re beautiful or they want to not be the norm. Our woman is someone who looks at fashion as a compass to show who they are, to show what they are.”
She also posted on Instagram:
They say life is about timing. I learned this lesson at age 18, when I chose to play a light tennis schedule because I wanted to go to fashion school. Some criticized my decision, but I knew I had two loves–tennis and fashion–and had to find a way to make them coexist. After 15 years of false starts, and people in fashion telling me "no," it only only drove me to work harder. As a result, I discovered what it meant to invest in myself, and I allowed that belief in myself to drive me to reach my dream. Today, I am proud to launch @serena , my own online shop. Never stop believing in yourself, you're worth it. #BeSeenBeHeard

Dave Bautista may have just given away a huge Avengers 4 plot twist
Spoilers ahead for Avengers: Infinity War…
In the end of Infinity War, Dave’s character Drax disintegrated along with his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy Star-Lord, Groot and Mantis when Thanos clicked his fingers and destroyed half the world after acquiring all of the Infinity Stones.
However, Bautista has now confirmed that he’ll be back in Avengers 4, pretty much killing the tension that Guardians, T’Challa, Spider-man, Doctor Strange, Bucky Barnes, the Scarlet Witch, Nick Fury and Maria Hill were all dust.
In an interview with Collider, he said: “I got a lot of texts saying, ‘I can’t believe you’re dead, your character is dead‘!
“They were really like heartbroken and I was like ‘I’m gonna be in [Avengers] 4. I’m gonna be in Guardians 3.”
He has provided relief for his fans but Marvel will sure not take this lightly.
