Sydney Bristow is back from her time in deep cover. Maybe.
Casting rumors swirl around X-Men: Dark Phoenix, a star has been found for the Bumblebee Transformers spinoff, and a good look at Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian mustache. Plus, a Doctor Horrible reunion is coming to A Series of Unfortunate Events. Spoilers ahead!
Alias, the spy-fi show that also included an old Italian prophet for some reason, put star Jennifer Garner in a number of wigs. But the bright red one she wore in the premiere still made the biggest impact.
The Postman has returned! For those of you who might not know, “Postal Apocalypse” is io9’s mail column, where I, Rob Bricken, senior editor of io9 and professional nerd for the last 16 years, answer your questions. I settle fan arguments, I solve mysteries, I give advice, whatever. I do this in the guise as the…
When it premiered 15 years ago, Alias was a spy show with a slightly spooky twist in that there were fantastical devices and prophecies, too. It stayed fun for a few seasons, and then the mythology became very dense. And it turns out that no one had any idea what any of it meant.
Jessica Jones, which comes to Netflix on Friday, is a game-changer for Marvel. She’s a different sort of hero than anyone we’ve seen thus far, and ventures into darker territory. But long before Jessica Jones was changing Marvel on screen, she marked a whole new day in Marvel Comics.
Just over a month from now, Marvel’s next TV show debuts, featuring Jessica Jones. But who is Jessica? She’s not as well known as Daredevil or the Agents of SHIELD, even though she spent some time as an Avenger in the comics. So here’s everything you need to know about Marvel’s most superheroic detective.
It’s survival week, so today we’re going to celebrate by looking at a group from movies and television that would look paranoid, except everyone really is out to get them. If it all goes to hell, stick close to these people.
If you believe fiction, spies are everywhere. You cannot turn around without bumping into someone in a wig, armed with a gun masquerading as a tasteful pair of earrings, and carrying secret plans in microdot form. There are so many, we decided to rank them.
Although it seemed like Marvel's Jessica Jones Netflix series couldn't get any better, it just did. David Tennant has just been cast as the villainous Purple Man. That's right, the beloved Tenth Doctor is about to turn into a total nightmare.
We've been wondering which actress would be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the lead in the Netflix series Jessica Jones. Now reports say Veronica Mars, Breaking Bad, and Don't Trust the B— actress Krysten Ritter will be playing the superhero turned private eye.
Things have been getting darker and bleaker on Agents of SHIELD ever since the big revelations in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And the season premiere contained a couple huge gut-punches. But it turned out the show was just getting started, and last night was basically one long kick in the teeth. Spoilers…
It's hard for the average person to understand why anyone wouldn't want to be immortal. Immortality has been a fruitful lens for fiction to examine the human condition. But sometimes there are immortals who completely fail to get the horror of immortality across. Instead, you can't help but think you'd do better. Here…
Sometimes a TV starts out strong, with a compelling plot, crackling writing, and intriguing characters, and then...well, slowly unravels. So how do you make the decision to just stop watching?
Last week's Tomorrow People saw Ultra raising its game. The organization dedicated to hunting down super-mutants actually showed some teeth — but this week, Ultra is weaker than ever. To the point where I'm starting to wonder if the boastful name is a case of overcompensation. Spoilers ahead...
Last night's episode of Agents of SHIELD was the first time this show really felt like it was "clicking," in terms of the characters and the storytelling. And I think it's a matter of this show finding its proper genre: It's not a superhero show, it's a spy show.
Maybe J.J. Abrams will really be able to helm Star Trek 3 after Star Wars VII. But we kind of doubt it. And out of all of the people in Abrams' orbit, there's one guy we'd actually like to see direct the next Star Trek: Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard. (Assuming Brad Bird isn't available, of course.) Here's…
What if the creator of Harry Potter met the originator of Alias and Lost, on the field of battle? Assume that Rowling gets to wield any item that's introduced in the Harry Potter books. Meanwhile, Abrams gets any device from his TV shows, but nothing from Mission Impossible, Star Trek or Star Wars. Who ya got?
A while back, we asked: Is Revolution the new Terra Nova, or the new Supernatural? And now we can say definitively that it's closer to the latter. You may hate this show's magical premise, but you can't deny it's doing the right things to develop staying power.
J.J. Abrams' new series Alcatraz, debuting tonight, feels very much like an attempt to recapture the glories of Lost. It features yet another mystery on an island, and the return of Jorge Garcia. The show was created by a Lost writer — who was replaced during production. And there are lots of random little mysteries…
