'is going to' vs. 'will' "What is going to happen in the future?" vs. "What will happen in the future?" Any difference in the meaning?

In your example they are interchangeable and mean the same. 'going to' and 'will' are interchangeable and equal when you make a future prediction (or make a question of it as in your example) There can be subtle differences between 'going to' and 'will' in other contexts, but in your example they mean the same. Here's a link if you're interested that talks about it a bit: https://www.grammar.cl/Notes/Future_Will_vs_Going.htm

Nope, they're synonymous. Edit: upon reflection, there are subtle differences between them. There are situations where one feels appropriate but not the other. This page attempts to explain, although I haven't read it through carefully: https://www.grammar.cl/Notes/Future_Will_vs_Going.htm
