Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley is getting ready to debut season two of his X-Men series Legion. While we’re anticipating picking David Haller’s story back up, the first teaser trailer goes in a very different direction. Yup, we’re going meta.
Pretty much anything can be improved by adding Jeff Goldblum, but Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok really used the actor to his fullest potential. Marvel has been releasing a few of their bonus clips from the upcoming Blu-ray release and with them we get to see Goldblum at his... Goldblum-iest.
Marvel’s Black Panther is currently taking the world by storm—the comics, the film, the soundtrack, and now... New York Fashion Week.
Syfy’s The Magicians knows how to do drama and horror, but last night’s episode “A Life In The Day” reminded us it’s also a master of emotion. The show just gave us its version of Star Trek: The Next Generation’s “The Inner Light.” And it was fucking amazing.
Fans were giddy and nervous as they sat down to view J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015, not sure what to expect from the start of a new trilogy. The opening scene was nothing short of dramatic, but an alternate fan-animated version based on Abrams’ storyboards is arguably even more so.
We were a little surprised when Marvel announced it would be producing a Serial-like podcast featuring none other than Wolverine—but we were also intrigued. Now we have our first trailer of Wolverine: The Long Night to give us a better idea of what to expect.
Fictional characters mean a lot to us—otherwise, we probably wouldn’t all be on this website right now. Personally, I’d be probably working at a cat cafe, but that’s beside the point. We grew up reading, watching, and listening to amazing pieces of media that helped shape our worldview in some way. io9 wants to know:…
When thinking about the Star Wars universe, real world pop culture doesn’t normally come to mind. But one fan has taken an epic scene from The Last Jedi and paired it with popular music that has no right to fit this well into the galaxy far, far away.
Last night’s outstanding episode of The X-Files has us all nostalgic for the show’s prime era (assuming our memories can be trusted, that is). So we want to know, what are your favorite—and least favorite—moments from the 11 seasons, two movies, books, and the rest?
Season three of The Magicians lands on Syfy this Wednesday and with it comes one of the show’s best scenes ever. Hold onto your butts—The Magicians is going meta.
After the surprising return of The X-Files to Fox for a (very uneven) season 10 in 2016, Chris Carter and company have decided to give it another go once more in season 11, which debuted last night. The premiere, “My Struggle III,” had some decidedly huge shake-ups.
We here at io9 absorbed a lot of pop culture this year. A lot. We thought long and hard about what was the best, and what was the worst, and painstakingly put together several posts so our fine readers could tell us how right (or wrong) we were. Here now, for your convenience, are all of them in one handy place.
The rise, and popularity, of social media has made creators more available to fans than ever. The downside is that some fans are real jerks. But a respectful fan recently asked Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson on Twitter what he thinks about his “polarizing” film. He replied, but should he have to?
It’s a yearly tradition, at least in my household, to take in the classic Rankin/Bass Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer special from 1964. Surprisingly, some of the old stop-motion puppet figures haven’t crumbled to dust yet! And you can buy them! If you’re Elon Musk, anyway.
Just last month we took a pretty comprehensive look at the ups and downs of Ben Affleck’s Batman “situation.” It’s been complicated to say the least. But he’s talking about his future with the character once again and honestly I feel like it’s time for the actor/director to put up or shut up.
There was a lot of things fans expected of Star Wars: The Last Jedi...and some they didn’t see coming at all. According to someone who worked on the Rian Johnson-directed film, that shirtless scene had a canon reason to exist. We’re skeptical.
The excruciating wait is over. Star Wars: The Last Jedi finally became viewable to fans starting last night. For those people who had to see it as soon as possible, we thought you might like a place to talk about it.
