Watching each episode of The Gifted is like receiving an X-Men-themed Secret Santa gift that you enjoy a surprising amount despite the fact that it’s, well, kinda cheap and not at all something you would have picked out for yourself. It’s the thought and heart that counts, after all.
One of the most impressive things about The Gifted has been its ability to tell an absolutely fantastic X-Men story without actually featuring most of the X-Men one might assume would be included in the series. Instead, most of the show’s mutants are somewhat lesser-known characters from Marvel’s comics who are just…
Confused as to why Dark Phoenix isn’t called X-Men: Dark Phoenix like its predecessors in the franchise? Blame Wolverine.
Time is a flat circle, and the Phoenix Force never dies.
You know. ‘Tis the season.
The first Dark Phoenix trailer is here, and short and cryptic though it may be, it’s still chock-full of intriguing hints about what’s in store for the X-Men and their most formidable foe yet.
When Fox first announced that Dark Phoenix would skew closer to the original X-Men story of how Jean Grey ultimately becomes one of the most powerful mutants to exist, the implication was always that this take on the story would involve space travel and an encounter with beings from another planet.
She is fire and life incarnate and she’s here in the first Dark Phoenix trailer to usher in both the beginning and end of all things. God help us all.
Over the course of its first season, Fox’s The Gifted set the stage to tell a timely story about just what all it means to be a misunderstood, disenfranchised second-class citizen in a world that hates and fears you.
At last night’s LA premiere of his new film, The Predator, director Shane Black finally spoke in public about the ongoing controversy concerning his decision to cast his one-time friend, Steven Wilder Striegel (a convicted sex offender), in the movie without informing the cast or studio.
When The Gifted returns this fall, the Mutant Underground and the Hellfire Club are going to war, and the show’s latest pair of trailers show that the conflict is going to force everyone to reconsider their allegiances.
In mid-August, The Predator actress Olivia Munn learned that Steven Wilder Striegel, an actor she shares a brief scene with in the upcoming 20th Century Fox thriller, was a registered sex offender. After bringing it to their attention, the studio says it was not aware, but director Shane Black is defending the choice…
Marti Noxon, executive producer and writer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, wasn’t a big fan of the new show’s announcement, at least not at first. Calling the original show a “sacred text,” Noxon was firmly in the No Remake! camp. Having learned more about what’s in store, she’s changed her tune.
Buffy Summers has been slaying demons for the past 26 years. This fall, her story in Dark Horse Comics’ ongoing Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve: The Reckoning series will come to an end. And then? Well, it’s going to get interesting
What does Sony have planned for their Spider-Man film universe after the release of Venom? The answers may surprise you, because they sure surprised us.
If you sat down to watch The Darkest Minds without knowing it was based on a book, that information would become abundantly clear about 10 minutes into the film. Almost every scene, especially early on, feels slightly detached from the last, as if some cohesive thread was cut to squeeze a 500-page book into a…
Much like any major comic book crossover event, the Disney/Fox merger saga has been exhaustingly drawn out, narratively dubious and marked by a number of dramatic twists and turns, but after the long battle, a decision has been reached. Today, an overwhelming majority of Disney and 21st Century Fox’s shareholders…
