Contest: Win a Blu-ray copy of Glass

Get into today's contest to win a free Blu-ray copy of Glass! M. Knight Shyamalan's films have always been pretty divisive. That one about nature attacking Mark Wahlberg is pretty blech, but like most people I like The Sixth Sense. Mos...

Review: Hellboy

Adaptation is a tough thing to nail. You can jump from one medium to another of course, but it feels like making the leap to the movies is the final destination for a lot of original works. You don’t hear of many video games or comic ...

Preacher's fourth season to be its last

Preacher was always the little show that could. Ever since it debuted in 2016, the show always seemed to be a bit too odd for TV yet it still attracted an audience just large enough to justify being renewed. Even compared to its contemporar...

Marvel gets Angelina too, may star in 'The Eternals'

Well, they sort of proclaimed it in Black Panther when Marvel told Kendrick Lamar to write a song about how they'll get "all of the stars." Seems they weren't joking. Marvel's latest catch is none other Maleficent herself, Angelina Jol...

Review: The Umbrella Academy

Imagine this: one day, you’re a person who’s totally not pregnant, not even a drop, minding your own biz-ness, enjoying some beach weather, and then, wham-o, the next and you’re full-term about to burst, like Jesus or...

Review: Captain Marvel

Think about this: two of the last three Marvel movies weren't just great action films, but landmark events in modern cinema. Black Panther was a Best Picture nominee that set off a cultural celebration and addressed social issues that ...

Latest Shazam! trailer shows Billy Batson as a real superhero

Can I just say how surprised I am that Shazam! actually looks like a great movie? I'm not even saying this like I'm giving the DCEU some kind of curve where even a passable DCEU is considered good, Shazam! actually looks like a fun and uni...

Will Smith's time with Suicide Squad is dead... shot

WB and DC sure know how to get their movies going, don't they? From director switches to drastic re-edits, we've seen it all. And now one of the headlining stars of Suicide Squad will not be returning. Variety is reporting that Will Sm...

X 'gon give it to ya--Dark Phoenix gets a new trailer

The X-Men face their greatest foe yet. Through a series of trials and logistical tribulations, the cosmic balance of their very reality lies uncertain. Charles Xavier, Magneto; the most powerful mutants known to man, moved like pawns in--o...

Captain Marvel's latest teaser sounds like a techno song

The half-time show may have been a big wash last night, but Marvel picked up the slack with two teaser trailers. Alongside a look at Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel got a quick spot. Sporting a bunch of flashy shots, we hear the slogan th...

Birds of Prey gets its first Hot Topic infused teaser

The current state of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) seems to be in a state of flux. With the critical and commercial failures of Batman v. Superman and Justice League, compared to the extremely lucrative solo films like Aquaman and Wonder...

First trailer for Amazon's The Boys gives away almost nothing

Garth Ennis' comic The Boys is one of those comics everyone tells you to read because it's just so damn good. That's probably why Amazon scooped it up to be a superhero TV show. That and the more superhero content you can put out the better...

Netflix releases first full The Umbrella Academy trailer

If 43 women becoming pregnant and spontaneously giving birth in the course of one day doesn't get your attention, I'm not sure what will. Back at the New York Comic Con in October, Netflix delivered a teaser for The Umbrella Academy th...

Review: Aquaman

At some point a few years ago, there must have been an urgent corporate meeting at Warner Bros. Pictures about Aquaman. The subject of the meeting: "how do we make Aquaman not lame?" In the laundry list of ridiculous suggestions, I imagine ...

Doooomed! DC's Doom Patrol series gets a premiere date

Ah, the holidays. A time for cozying up by the fireplace (if you have a fireplace, use it for me; I'm always cold), sipping some cocoa, and reading some comics. Or, you could cozy up and anticipate all those screen adaptations of your favo...

First trailer for Hellboy reboot loves you Mony Mony

After a bit of wait and a lot of hand-wringing over limited glimpses, we now have an in-motion look at Hellboy, and it definitely features Hellboy, which I would argue is a good start. The trailer doesn't give us much of a hint of the plot...

Netflix's second season of Punisher will land in January

The writing is on the wall for the Netflix's Marvel shows, but that doesn't mean that the ones that were in production before the great culling began won't be coming out. Both Punisher and Jessica Jones still have seasons coming,...

The new Avengers trailer reveals title, quells fanbase

Are you people happy now? After all the fervor, Marvel Studios officially unveiled the first trailer for the follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War. It feels a bit more of a teaser—it doesn't show much, but to be quite honest, that's th...

Praise Humperdoo! Preacher returns for a fourth season

With all of the recent cancellations of beloved comic book TV shows, I was worried as hell about the fate of AMC's Preacher. To say that Preacher is a bizarre show would be doing it an injustice. Last season alone includ...

Here are five better names for the solo Harley Quinn movie

Warner Bros. has just announced the full title for the upcoming Cathy Yan directed Birds of Prey film. Instead of keeping things simple, we now have a gigantic run-on sentence to contend with. When shopping for the Blu-ray in the future, ma...

Why I am pumped for 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'

Growing up in the 90's and early 2000's Sabrina The Teenage Witch on ABC became a household television staple for my family. Melissa Joan Hart who brought the Comicbook Witch to life became permanently linked with that character and I loved...

HBO provides its first look at the upcoming Watchmen series

There's no denying the greatness of Alan Moore's Watchmen. The 1987 story took a dark look at the superhero realm, filled it with riotous prerogatives and semi-retired heroes forced into a choice of underground vigilante or common civilian ...

Iron Fist will not be returning for a season three

In news that is probably shocking to no one, Marvel and Netflix's Iron Fist will not be returning for a third season. Despite apparently improving the second time around, the showrunners at Marvel have passed on continuing Danny Rand's tale...

Venom Sequel will not be R-Rated

For a film, many thought would do horribly because it's not part of the MCU and is done by Sony, Venom did extremely well at the box office in its opening weekend. Now, of course, there is the talk of where does it go from here and that que...

God Country takes a leap from the pages to the screen

In a world teeming with superhero sensory overload, sometimes a respite is needed. Sometimes the hero isn’t really a hero and only fights for good because there’s no other choice. A reluctant hero, perhaps. Welcome to God Coun...

NYCC: The Boys teaser shows little but has promise

Garth Ennis is the best thing that ever came out of the terrible period of comics known as the 90's. There I said it. Yes, there are a few other merits from that decade but Ennis and his writing just embodies so much of the 90's while stil...
