It’ll never happen, but the video below – Spider-Man: Into the Multiverse – dares to dream.

At the very least, both Thor and Loki are among the heroes set to take center stage in one of the various one-act plays available for high school theater programs to purchase through the newly announced Marvel Spotlight.

So how did he do? How does this latest Annabelle stack up against the previous entries? The first reviews have arrived, so read on to find out. Read More »
Alternate international titles are nothing new for Hollywood movies. Sometimes translating a concept from English into another language doesn’t quite work, and a bit of the subtlety is removed in the process. (In the Czech Republic, Bad Santa became Santa is a Pervert.) Maybe there’s already a property that features the same title, so a tweak is needed to differentiate it. (In the United Kingdom, The Avengers is known as Avengers: Assemble.) And sometimes, the titles are just huge improvements in every possible way. (In Japan, Fast Five is known as Wild Speed MEGA MAX.)
Now Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has received its own alternate title in Japan, and it carries with it some familiar echoes from a different franchise altogether. Read More »

When a show breaks narrative convention as much as FX’s Legion, in which entire episodes can take place during a split second, there’s only one way to possibly end it: by introducing time travel. Legion introduces Switch (Lauren Tsai) to help David Haller (Dan Stevens) conclude his journey.
Season three of Legion will be its last, but creator Noah Hawley is ending it on his own terms. David is seeking a time traveler to help him correct mistakes he’s made in the past, especially in his relationship with Syd (Rachel Keller), but also to stop Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) once and for all.
Lauren Shuler Donner, who brought the X-Men to the screen in 2000, produces Legion with Marvel Television. Shuler Donner spoke with /Film by phone about the final season of Legion, premiering tonight on FX.
