    I’m so excited for Alice! Not as excited as I am for Fantastic Beasts, but still! And Tony Stark is my favourite Avenger, and Eoin Colfer is one of my favourite authors, so I can’t wait for that combination 🙂

      I was surprised they got so many big names to write all their novels, but it’s pretty exciting! I’m interested in the Captain Marvel novel, though I’m a little worried because I wasn’t impressed by Hale’s last superhero novel, Dangerous.
