The great thing about conventions is everyone has their own experience. For example, io9 did a tour of the Star Wars booth at New York Comic Con and certainly thought it was cool. But later in the weekend, some unsuspecting attendees got a much, much different experience.
The very last shot of last season’s The Magicians showed the fairies arriving to Fillory in force to take over the kingdom. It looked like war was on the horizon. But it turns out, it’s more like a silent coup, as our favorite stylish monarchs will have to play a clever game of “fairies totally aren’t telling us what…
It’s been less than a year since DC’s Rebirth pulled Wally West—the first one, that is—out of the speedforce and back into the world of DC Comics, his memory of the old DC universe in tow. Now, he’s going to be thrust into a comics fan debate of old for a new storyline: Who’s the better speedster, Wally or Barry?
New York Comic Con 2017 may not have had as many spoilers and reveals as its San Diego counterpart, but it was bursting with epic cosplay, including Pickle Ricks, Itachi Uchida fighting Wonder Woman, and a giant oceanic gown. Check out io9's video montage of the best and brightest from this year’s event.
Constantine is coming back the CW, a bit more two-dimensional than the last time we saw him on Arrow, through a new animated series. And if you were dying for more of Matt Ryan in action as the sarcastic spell-slinging demon hunter, then this preview should be more than enough to whet your appetite.
At New York Comic Con, Fox released the very first look at the eleventh season of The X-Files, due on our screens next year. They’ve only filmed five of the ten new episodes, so we know that only those episodes must be included. Which means there’s a lot going on in the beginning of the season.
Amazon is really looking to makes Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, its upcoming scifi anthology series, more cinematic than episodic. At “The World of Philip K. Dick” panel at New York Comic Con (which covered both Electric Dreams and The Man in the High Castle), the producers emphasized how the show is far more like…
At the Star Trek: Discovery panel at New York Comic Con, a fan in the audience asked about the look of the Klingons, which the person asking the question described as being the most “African” they’ve ever looked. And to make them the villains can feel alienating.
After ending a spectacular season four—which included Ghost Rider, Life Model Decoys, and the Framework—Agents of SHIELD will be back for a two-hour premiere on December 1.
Marvel has ended its comics partnership with defense contractor Northrop Grumman, having previously cancelled Saturday’s New York Comic Con announcement event, after facing criticism for seemingly promoting war profiteering.
This is no surprise, because Dawson’s music of choice for accompanying the Phasma novel is a heady mix of Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars. What’s not to love about that?
I’ll admit, I went into the New York Comic Con premiere of Once Upon a Time’s seventh season hoping for little and expecting even less. But much to my surprise, the new story is good. It’s dynamic and interesting, with actors who are giving their all to a different twist on a familiar tale. The only problem is that…
The thing that brings Marvel’s Runaways together isn’t that they’re all kids with superpowers that make them social outcasts. Instead, each of their parents is part of a doomsday cult. If your actual family is trying to bring about the apocalypse, you’d probably cling to your friends, too.
At the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at New York Comic Con, Timothy Zahn announced that the sequel to his bestselling Thrawn novel will arrive next summer and will be called Thrawn: Alliances. Also, a certain Dark Lord of the Sith will be stopping by.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular weekly roundup of all the toys you’ll want to blow your paycheck on, instead of buying groceries, paying rent, or other more responsible purchases. This week we’ve got an Imperial entry in Sphero’s line of interactive droids, a cartoon version of Boba Fett, and a bunch of New…
Fingers crossed that we don’t have to wait until 2019 for winter to end. Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham has revealed that filming is set to start the week after next for the last season of the series.
To a packed and excited room at New York Comic Con, Pacific Rim Uprising revealed a ton of details about the characters, story, and, most importantly, the giant robots that make up the sequel. “It’s fun, it’s action, I think it’s everything you want Pacific Rim to be moving forward,” said producer and star John Boyega.
Over the past two seasons, The Man in the High Castle has slowly delved into the idea of other realities, including our own (which Tagomi traveled to at the end of season one). But it looks like season three is going all-in: The multiverse is real, certain people can traverse it, and the Nazis are ready to invade.
The act of passing on Doctor Who’s lead role is a weird one, since the actors are stuck in a limbo where they know they’re on the way out, but they don’t know who’s going to take their place yet. Peter Capaldi however managed to figure out there was a monumental change coming for his replacement... thanks to a pair of…
One of the most exciting things about conventions are the exclusives—and a big event like New York Comic Con has a million of them, from toys to posters and so much more. We’ve already shown you a few pieces of exclusive art, but there’s just so much there, we decided to share even more. This is mostly superhero…
