Marvel Studios’ swaret into the Netflix model of television shows was a massive success. Daredevil season 1 released on April 11 and with just 13 episodes, the public was reintroduced to the “Devil of Hell’s Kitchen.” And with the success of the first season, a second season was bound to happen, right? Well with the way…

See the upcoming Avengers fashion from Her Universe and Hot Topic

Superheroes — and the villains they face — should inspire super fashion. That's certainly true of the new fan-designed collection from Her Universe and Hot Topic.

Amy Beth Christenson and Andrew MacLaine designed the collection with Her Universe founder, Ashley Eckstein, for Hot Topic. The dresses and jackets are available to pre-order on and will be in select stores May 12.

This year's Expedition Everest Challenge will be the last

The Expedition Everest Challenge has run its course, Disney confirmed today. The 5K race has been run at Disney's Animal Kingdom annually since 2008, but next month's event will be the last.

The race is more of a fun run — it includes obstacles and ends with a scavenger hunt, and many participants wear costumes. The last Expedition Everest Challenge will take place at 10 p.m. on May 2. Registration is sold out.

There has been speculation for several months that this would be the last year for the event because there won't be any room for a race after dark. Disney plans to add evening safaris, entertainment and the Rivers of Light "nighttime spectacular" on the Discovery River, which is expected to debut in early 2016. Plus, the new Avatar-themed land is expected to open in 2017, and early looks at the design hint that it could be a huge after-dark draw.

RunDisney has become known for its marathons and half-marathons. But if fun runs are more your speed, runDisney includes family 5Ks during most of its race weekends.
