Full disclosure: I’ve had a fair amount of cold medication today. But this mashup a) works far better than it has any right to; and b) Donkey as Loki may have actually caused me to get sicker when the shock destroyed my immune system.
Hey, remember Agents Miller (Robbie Amell) and Einstein (Lauren Ambrose)? No? Well, try to dredge up some sort of memory because they’re coming back in season 11 of The X-Files.
“Blissfull Melodies” is a very short—but still beautifully animated—film from four Gobelins students. The “twist” isn’t really one, but it still leaves you wanting more.
Yesterday, EW broke the news that Benicio Del Toro’s Last Jedi character is a “slicer” that Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) are tracking down. Despite the fact that you may never have heard the word slicer in a Star Wars movie, they have a long and important history in that universe.
You are going to want to blow up this map of Duckburg, I promise you. There are a lot of fun things hidden here, not just Launchpad McQuack’s plane crashed into the mountain that Scrooge’s McDuck Manor is on.
The rebooted DuckTales has a clear reverence for the original, and there are things for fans to notice and geek out over in much of the footage we’ve already seen. And yet, there are still some Easter eggs out there waiting to be found.
Teen Titans Go! did a four-part series about fighting a dragon who wants to steal Cyborg’s favorite song, “The Night Begins to Shine.” (Because that is every dragon’s secret desire.)

For a man the trailers have pointed out consistently usually works alone, Batman sure does have a giant plane to put his nonexistent friends in.
In his now-infamous meeting with Billy Dee Williams, Donald Glover threw out a huge number of ideas and thoughts about the character of Lando Calrissian. According to Glover, after he said all that, Williams looked at him and said, “Yeah, I don’t know about all that. Just be charming.”
One of the big complaints about the X-Files revival was the weakness of its mythology episodes. So when The X-Files comes back again again in 2018, there will only be two mythology episodes. It’s like Chris Carter and company have to wean themselves off them.
Disney XD’s revitalized and rebooted DuckTales is a testament to the staying power of Scrooge McDuck and his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. It’s also a grand showing of how far animation in general has come since 1987.
At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn gave himself a way to keep making soundtracks filled with classic hits without having Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) somehow find a new mix tape over and over. All thanks to... the Zune.
Seeing your character represented in cosplay is a time-honored right of passage these days. Of course, when you’re the new Doctor and you’ve been seen for a grand total of one minute, you probably don’t expect to see it so soon.
In the MCU, the Ravagers are a band of criminals with a specific code. In the comics, those characters were also the original Guardians of the Galaxy. And while there’s been some speculation that the movies could switch the order around and have the Ravagers pick up the mantle, James Gunn recently talked about the…
The official website for American Horror Story: Cult has a creepy clown cultist puzzle you can solve that reveals actors in costume and the names of their new characters. There’s a doctor of some kind and a detective—and wait, remember when Ryan Murphy said this season was going to feature the election?
The USS Discovery has got to be a ship stuck in one location, based on the number of weird u-turns and backpedals it has done. Contrary to the article in which Entertainment Weekly previewed its cover story on Star Trek: Discovery, apparently “God” is a perfectly fine word for a Terran to say.
At the press event following Battlestar Galactica’s reunion at Comic-Con, executive producers David Eick and Ron Moore talked about the show, from its pitch to its current legacy. And they had a little advice about what people writing for binge-watching could learn from the traditional TV model.
Well, this might be the answer we’ve been looking for. Variety has a story detailing the issues that The Dark Tower movie has run into. It’s an interesting read, but the detail that sticks out the most is that three separate entities apparently had some form of veto power over the film.
