Though, after Warner Bros. decided to announce their film schedule through to 2020 involving their DC Comics heroes, Marvel Studios was sure to make a response. And boy, was it a big one. Marvel invited many fans and reporters to witness Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, and actors Chris Evans, Robert Downey, Jr., and Chadwick Boseman confirm movies that have been heavily rumored with set release dates. What movies were announced?

Marvel Studios put the rumors to rest, officially announcing the third Captain America film, Captain America: Civil War, which will loosely be based on the comic book crossover of the same name, and that Robert Downey, Jr. will return as his iconic Iron Man/Tony Stark role. Also, the third Avengers film, Avengers: Infinity War, will be so huge that the story will be split into two movies that will be released a year apart from each other.

But are there haunted houses in real life, filled with the ghosts of former occupants and grisly murder victims? Thousands of people have testified to experiencing the supernatural at locations all across the world, and the notion of a place being "haunted" is a near-universal concept in world folklore. These 13 haunted houses are said to be the real deal, complete with ghosts, spooks and weird things going bump in the night. 

Whether these haunted homes are real or fake, haunted houses are some of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. Perhaps the mystery, such as the stairways to nothing at the Winchester House, is the real draw to these locations with visitors coming to some in the millions to decide for themselves if the haunting is real. Do you believe in haunted houses? The next time you're looking for a spooky place to visit, try one of these real haunted houses on for size.

<![CDATA[31 Reasons You Miss Halloween in the '90s]]> http://ranker.com/list/1990s-halloween-nostalgia/brian-gilmore Halloween in the 1990s was a magical time for trick or treating, and if you ever got to dress up like a Power Ranger and hunt for the best Halloween candy in a McDonald's Happy Meal bucket, you know this to be the truth. It was a time when every other costume wasn't something meme-related, when pop culture was still gleaned exclusively from what TV/Movie/Magazine companies wanted you to see and before Leg Avenue started making sexy costumes for dogs.

The best parts of Halloween in the '90s are here on this list of the very best '90s Halloween nostalgia and nostalgia-related toys, candy, commercials, decorations, trends, costumes and more, so that you can yearn for the times when you walked the streets in a vinyl costume that was really just an expensive, uncomfortable, sweaty pair of pajamas that you'd have to wear a jacket on top of anyway.
 
Whether you were the type that liked to stay home and hand out candy (hopefully good candy, not the awful Halloween treats like pennies and popcorn that some people distributed) or a hardcore trick-or-treater that hoofed it up and down the street until the final Snickers bar had been collected, 90s Halloween nostalgia will bring you back to all the best parts of your childhood as it relates to one of the best holidays of the year.

What was Halloween like in the 1990s? What were the best parts of 90s Halloween? There are tons of candies, costumes and movies that will take you right back to the '90s, but these bits of nostalgia are specific to Halloween and all the sugar-fueled glory of these fall nights of your youth (or early adulthood, if you're of that age, or if you're younger, this is what it was like before kids had GPS safe-trick-or-treating routes, flashlights and calorie counters on their camera phones.)

<![CDATA[34 Awesome Literary Costume Ideas for Halloween]]> http://ranker.com/list/literary-halloween-costume-ideas/janaegreen From your dusty shelves to your wardrobe, great literature should happen to you this Halloween. If books have taught us anything, it's that it's the attention to detail that sells the story. Whether you are sipping caramel appletinis or nom-noming boiled peanuts in the graveyard, the ideal Halloween costume should give you the confidence of Katniss Everdeen and the cleverness of Willy Wonka. Because frankly, my dear? Last year everyone came stumbling into the karaoke dive like a wrecking ball. That is something we would like to see, um quoth the Raven? Nevermore. Let's make this year a Halloween to bookmark with lots of literary costume ideas.

Vote for the craftiest attention to button eyes and blood splatter. Remember, you shouldn't have to have the deep pockets of Jay Gatsby to look like a hundred or more well-loved pages, so the more potential for thrift, the better. As always, it is important to complement your best chocolate-eating grin for the occasion. So dust off your Holden Caulfield jacket or redden your Lady Macbeth hands and vote for the best literary costumes below.

Let's face it, this holiday is hella fun, but it does come with a fair amount of bother and stress.There's lots to do, including putting together the finishing touches on your costume, arranging a designated driver for the evening's spook-tacular revelry, and preparing to shell out more money on candy to feed trick-or-treaters than you probably pay in taxes. It's important to keep a sense of humor alive while going through the motions, which is probably why many people decide to dress their pets in Halloween costumes. Who doesn't want to see a pug dressed like Yoda, or a cat in Pippi Longstocking pigtails? Even something totes obvious like a dachshund made to look like a hotdog is, at the very least, mildly amusing.

Most animals are good sports, even though it seems evident that many feel demoralized while wearing Halloween costumes. Vote up which of these unfortunately dressed pets is worthy of the most laughs. Keep in mind that no animals were harmed in any of these photos... unless you count the crushing of their souls.

Slater, the girl-next-door that everyone was crushing on, Kelly Kapowski, the born leader, Jessie Spano, the nerdy awkward kid, Samuel "Screech" Powers, the trendy fashion princess, Lisa Turtle, and of course, the esteemed Principal Belding.

Now, congrats on the upcoming big day, but in the meantime, take a look at these engagement photo props and tell us if you can think of something better! Who knows? When or if he or she ever puts a ring on it, you might be glad you sneaked a peek!

<![CDATA[The 15 Craziest Victims of the Streisand Effect]]> http://ranker.com/list/streisand-effect-victims/kel-varnsen Streisand Effect victims are the celebrities, companies, and even whole countries whose attempts to censor or hide some bad press completely backfired, only to make the situation a million times worse. All of these "victims" learned the hard way that sometimes responding to an unfortunate story isn't really the best policy - as igniting the fires of the Internet lynch mob almost always has catastrophic consequences.

Of course, the first and most well-known victim is Barbra Streisand herself. The singer's attempts to censor a photo of her Malibu, California, home are why the Streisand Effect is a thing. She was not, however, the last victim. This phenomenon, wherein Internet users grab their pitchforks and don't take too kindly to censorship, has been repeated with the companies like Samsung and Ralph Lauren, groups like Wikileaks (who actually benefited from this activism) and the Church of Scientology, and popular celebrities, such as singer Beyonce and footballer Ryan Giggs.

Few companies faced the backlash as badly as Amy's Baking Company, though. When cafe was featured on the reality show "Kitchen Nightmares," host Gordon Ramsay gave up on the owners, citing their inflexibility and unpleasant work environment. The company then went on an all-out war with those "Internet bullies" who dared to talk badly about them. The battle certainly didn't paint the company in a great light, but it was pretty comical to witness.

If these examples prove anything, it's that sometimes it's better to let a bad story just burn out on its own. Wait until those 15 seconds are up and people will move on to the next best thing. Until "victims" learn this lesson though, the Streisand Effect victims will surely continue.

List of the best current Saturday Night Live cast members, as ranked by fans and casual critics. SNL has been on for 40 glorious seasons. The show has been known for scooping up the most talented improv and comedy actors on the underground circuit and turning them into comedy superstars. In 2012, many of the SNL cast members who were carrying the weight of the show for years - including Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, and Fred Armisen - left the cast and left plenty of room for newcomers to shine. The current cast of SNL is filled with newcomers who have yet to make a big name for themselves in sketch comedy. The present season has allowed these lesser known cast members to properly sparkle.

 

This list features long time cast members like Bobby Moynihan and long-time sketch comedy veteran Taran Killam, as well as newer faces like Kyle Mooney and Aidy Bryant who prove themselves on a weekly basis. Not only is individual comedy prowess important, illustrating an ability to work as a comedy team puts some of these cast members among the best of the best.

 

Who are the best SNL cast members still on the show? This list features the entire current cast, including repertory and featured players.
