Disney Decides on New Marvel Movie Dates, Drops Artemis Fowl to Streaming

Because it’s still unclear if and when countries across the world will manage to get on top of the covid-19 pandemic, there is no way of knowing when it will once again be safe for the public to return to everyday life and pile into cinemas.

The Coronavirus Outbreak Has Put the Comics Industry Between a Rock and a Hard Place

In the UK, comic book stores have had to close their doors alongside all other non-essential reteailers. In the United States, more and more comic book stores are also having to close their doors because of the ongoing covid-19 outbreak – whether that’s due to state restrictions or an actual lack of new product.

Netflix’s I Am Not Okay With This follows in the long tradition of comic book adaptations about people manifesting superpowers to tell coming-of-age stories about how hard it is to know yourself as your body begins to do and feel things you don’t understand. Sydney Novak (It and Sharp Objects star Sophia Lillis) is a burgeoning telekinetic, yes, but she’s also a hormonal teenager on the brink of realising something profoundly important about herself.

Chris Chibnall’s New Doctor Who Short Story is a Deeper Glimpse Into Regeneration

The circumstances of the Thirteenth Doctor’s regeneration were particularly momentous because while she, like most Doctors before her, was able to regenerate just fine, moments later she was flung out of her ship above the Earth and left to fall to the planet’s surface as her TARDIS both exploded and dematerialised—“dematerialexploding” – before her eyes. This was not an ideal situation. Read More >>

Antebellum’s Latest Trailer Hints at an Unexpected Sci-Fi Twist

Antebellum’s first trailer made it obvious that Janelle Monáe’s Veronica Henley was destined to become mixed up in all types of wildly dangerous situations over the course of the film.

Kumail Nanjiani’s Eternals Superhero Has the Coolest Secret Identity

Unlike most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s established superheroes, who – aside from Spider-Man – have never really bothered to hide their secret identities, the family of characters at the heart of Eternals have spent thousands of years living among humanity, all the while hiding the fact that they’re a race of superbeings created by the Celestials.

Locke & Key’s Meredith Averill on Grief in Horror and Her Elm Street Dream Project

Locke & Key’s journey to the small screen was a long and winding one that culminated in something new for Netflix: a single season of television that somehow managed to pack what was essentially the whole of a comic book series’ plot into 10 tightly-crafted, hour-long episodes. Even more impressive, though, was the way that Locke & Key’s Netflix team brought Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez’s story to life while also giving the series its own distinct tone and energy.
