If You Aren't Watching Victor and Valentino Yet, Now's the Time to Start If You Aren't Watching Victor and Valentino Yet, Now's the Time to Start

Cartoon Network’s Victor and Valentino—from creator Diego Molano—is a testament to the idea that the more culturally specific a story is, the more universal it tends to end up being.

When last we heard about FX’s live-action Y: The Last Man series, every indication seemed to point toward it being dead in the water. Showrunners Aïda Mashaka Croal and Michael Green announced that they were parting ways with the adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s comic in April. Now, though, it seems as…

Jessica Jones' Surprising Cameos Leave the Door Open for Potential Future Opportunities Jessica Jones' Surprising Cameos Leave the Door Open for Potential Future Opportunities

With Jessica Jones’ final season, the age of Marvel’s Netflix heroes has come to an end, and all things considered, the series’ finale did a solid job of giving its characters the space to leave some excellent, lasting impressions. But there are two moments in Jessica Jones’ very last episode suggesting that the…

Every so often, you come across a season of a television show that’s so generally strong that even the things you don’t particularly like about it are still rather solid. Jessica Jones’ third and final outing is precisely that kind of season.

Dark Phoenix Didn't Understand Who the X-Men Are Dark Phoenix Didn't Understand Who the X-Men Are

All you have to do is take one look at the box office totals for Fox’s X-Men films to see that, even when the movies weren’t particularly good (see: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Apocalypse), people were still clamoring to see them. So where did Dark Phoenix go wrong?

This Captain Marvel VFX Breakdown Shows That Maybe the Movie Didn't Need 4 Cat Actors

Without Goose the Flerken, there’s a very good chance that Nick Fury would have been murdered by the Kree in Captain Marvel, which would have had catastrophic consequences for the larger MCU. Without Fury, there probably wouldn’t be any Avengers, and without them, well. You get the idea.

Batman Beyond and Supergirl Are Part of DC's Next Legion of Superheroes Series Batman Beyond and Supergirl Are Part of DC's Next Legion of Superheroes Series

The 31st century’s always been a wild, fantastical place in DC’s comics, existing in a distinctly separate narrative space than the publisher’s flagship titles that are set in the present. But this September, that’s all set to change in a new Legion of Superheroes series from writer Brian Michael Bendis and a number…

Carrie-Anne Moss’ Jeri Hogarth is one of the most dynamic and fascinating characters in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.

Steven Universe: The Movie Adds Chance the Rapper to Its Musical Ranks Steven Universe: The Movie Adds Chance the Rapper to Its Musical Ranks

When we talked to Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar last year about the creative process that goes into crafting the series’ excellent music, we asked what other artists she had in heavy Spotify rotation.

Dark Phoenix's Simon Kinberg Took Inspiration From Nolan's Batman to Bring the X-Men Down to Earth Dark Phoenix's Simon Kinberg Took Inspiration From Nolan's Batman to Bring the X-Men Down to Earth

There’s an unsteady, chaotic energy coursing through much of Simon Kinberg’s Dark Phoenix. It almost feels like an extension of the existential crisis its titular hero finds herself in as she becomes the most powerful mutant to ever walk the Earth. That feeling, according to Kinberg, was a wholly intentional part of…
