Original Spice Girls bus becomes Airbnb rental

Spice Girls’ super fans will have a chance to spice up their lives when the girl band’s original Union Jack-emblazoned Double Decker bus will come up for rent on Airbnb.

The interior of the bus has been completely renovated and converted into a rolling hotel room fit for three guests at a time. Suzanne Godley, who, along with her boss, completed the bus overhaul, said the Spice Girls were her childhood ‘obsession.’

“My parents were subjected to my tone-deaf performance as Baby Spice, and I must have watched the Spice World move hundreds of times,” she told.

The duo plans to open up the bus for reservations, though the only dates that will be available at first are June 14 and 15, to coincide with the Spice Girls reunion at Wembley Stadium in London. The bus will be located in the Wembley Park area at the time.

Black Widow solo movie

Black Widow is finally going to get to spin her own web. The much-anticipated solo spin-off for Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) is coming to cinema screens as the Marvel Cinematic Universe enters Phase Four.

Little is known about the film beyond Johansson’s involvement, that it will be directed by Cate Shorthand, and that the likes of Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz have joined the cast. Now a new rumour is suggesting when the new film is set, which had previously been touted as a prequel to her MCU appearances so far, but now may be set in the more recent past.

A Twitter user shared a social media claim that Bucky Barnes actor Sebastian Stan commented that the film will take place after the events of the film Captain America: Civil War. In the meantime, we are still reeling from Widow’s story arc in Avengers: Endgame, which the film’s directors explained in more detail here.
