'Captain America 3's' controversial release date, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • We really are headed for a superhero showdown: "Captain America 3" is officially opening on May 6, 2016 - the same date as the new Batman vs. Superman movie. [Marvel]
  • Justin Timberlake is going to ride this "20/20 Experience" tour until the wheels fall off. The singer's bringing the event back around to North America for a new string of dates starting in July. [Billboard]
  • Raise your hand if this trailer for HBO's new show, "The Leftovers," has piqued your interest (ours are raised!):
  • The only thing missing from Faith Hill's duet with Tim McGraw at the ACM awards on Sunday were T-shirts that read, "Would a couple headed for divorce do this?"
  • OK, so director Richard Donner is totally on board for a "Goonies" sequel and he wants the old cast to return ... but Corey Feldman isn't that into it. Drama! [TMZ/TMZ]
  • This made our hearts hurt: "It's hard for me, but I think it's much harder for Frances," Courtney Love tells the Telegraph of Kurt Cobain's death. "She has no memories of her father. Not one. It sucks." [Telegraph]
  • Amanda Bynes would like to thank you for wishing her a happy 28th birthday on April 3 with pictures of herself in a bikini:

What Jon Hamm looked like in the '90s, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Somewhere, a woman named Mary is kicking herself for passing up Jon Hamm on the '90s dating show "The Big Date." (For the record, we would've gone with Hamm's proposal of "an evening of total fabulosity.") [YouTube]
  • Today in Super Smart Business Decisions, Lancome has tapped Lupita Nyong'o to be the new face of the brand as its "ambasadress." [LAT]
  • If you're one of the few still watching "Glee," it's time to start campaigning for the show or at least hosting viewing parties. Not only is it the lowest-rated show already picked up for another season, but its current fifth season is being cut by two episodes. [THR]
  • We imagine that if MTV had given Carson Daly free rein to create a new "Jesus Christ Superstar" on "TRL," it would look a lot like this: NYSNC's J.C. Chasez, Incubus' Brandon Boyd and Destiny Child's Michelle Williams are taking part in the upcoming national tour of the musical. [Time]
  • Get ready for "Game of Thrones" crossover in "The Hunger Games": Gwendoline Christie - known as Brienne of Tarth on the HBO series - will replace Lily Rabe as Commander Lyme in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2." [Deadline]

The Zac Efron, John Grisham connection, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Is Zac Efron a closet John Grisham fan? We're going to assume he's got a bookcase lined with the prolific writer's titles, because the actor is set to star in and produce an adaptation of Grisham's "The Associate." [The Wrap]
  • Meanwhile, Amy Adams is going to delve into a sci-fi adaptation with a starring role in the movie version of the short story, "Story of Your Life." [THR]
  • And lastly, Holly Hunter is joining Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in their Batman vs. Superman movie. She's supposedly going to play a new character never before seen in the DC Comics universe, but that could also be in name only. [EW]
  • Here's a fun drinking game: take a sip every time one of Drake's lyrics references a current, ex, or he-wishes-she-was girlfriend. You can start playing with his newest song, "Days in the East." [E!]
  • Alexa Ray Joel's sultry look at a recent New York concert was not courtesy of plastic surgery. "(A)ll of the continuously circulating rumors that I have had extensive 'face-work' and undergone breast augmentation surgery is simply and entirely 100% false," Joel said in an Instagram post that had many wondering if she'd gone back under the knife. "The only thing I have ever had done is my nose, which I have always been completely candid, honest, and open about ... Any visibly positive alterations in terms of my public image are an absolute and sole credit to my brilliant makeup artist and stylist, @darlingcait ... That, combined with the fact that I actually have a hearty dose of self-confidence now, which took me a little extra minute or so to find."

Miley Cyrus' miserable day, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Miley Cyrus is apologizing to her Boston fans in advance of her concert there because she's struggling with a tough loss. The singer's dog Floyd has died. "this is the 3rd worst day of my life. I am beyond miserable," she tweeted on April 2. [Miley Cyrus' Twitter]
  • More proof that age is nothing but a number: The "Today" show's Willard Scott has tied the knot at the seasoned age of 80. He wed his longtime girlfriend Paris Keena in Florida on Tuesday. [Today]
  • Amanda Bynes should no longer feel any shame about publicly expressing that she had the hots for Drake on Twitter - not after the guy just blatantly hit on Jennifer Lawrence in his new song "Draft Day." "On some 'Hunger Games' s***/I would die for my district," he raps. "Jennifer Lawrence/You could really get it/I mean, for real girl, you know I had to do it for ya." [SoundCloud]
  • Depending on how you feel about Drake's new song, we think Janelle Monae's cover of David Bowie's "Heroes" will be pretty much the best thing you'll hear all day.
  • "Saturday Night Live's" promo reels featuring the guest host of the week can be pretty hit or miss, but we smile at them anyway because hey, doing live TV is hard. But Anna Kendrick nails the promos so spectacularly that we're settling in for an epic hosting gig this weekend:
  • And now, we leave you with Samuel L. Jackson doing slam poetry in honor of "Boy Meets World." The best part is that while it's supposed to be silly, it's actually pretty dope (not surprising, since this is Samuel L. Jackson we're talking about):

  • In "Sex Tape," the new movie that just released a NSFW  red-band trailer, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel play a couple who are rich enough to give out multiple iPads as gifts but not smart enough to know not to sync them. [HitFix]
  • When it comes to the messy finale of "How I Met Your Mother," it looks like Josh Radnor sums it up best: "Who knows? It's weird to speculate on something that isn't actually real." [NYMag's Vulture]
