RIP Comic book artist and writer Carlos Pacheco

In sad news, Carlos Pacheco, an artist and writer who made major contributions to both Marvel and DC Comics during his career, has passed away. Marvel made the above tribute to him on Instagram, highlighting his work in titles such as "Avengers Forever" and "X-Men." DC also paid tribute to Pacheco on Twitter, saying the following:

"Carlos Pacheco was a visionary artist who whose contributions to the Superman, Green Lantern and the JLA/JSA legacies will have a lasting impact on the industry. DC offers its sincere condolences to his family, friends, fans and many collaborators."

Agatha: Coven of Chaos begins production next week

It looks like "Agatha: Coven of Chaos" is getting underway very soon. This is according to "WandaVision" star Emma Caulfield, who is returning to reprise her role in the upcoming spin-off. Speaking with, Caulfield revealed that she's getting to work next week, meaning production is about to begin (if it hasn't already).

"The cast is so good. I start doing some stuff next week. I know a little bit, but I can't say anything. I can't tell you what to expect, because that would reveal something. I know little, just enough to keep me in the right zone. I think it's all going to be really fun. I haven't seen [Kathryn Hahn] yet. I really love her. She's just the best, effortlessly cool."

No word yet on a release date but the show is expected to debut sometime in 2023. Timed around Halloween, perhaps?

No, Zack Snyder is not coming back to DC

Unchecked rumors have been swirling about online ever since James Gunn and Peter Safran took over as the heads of DC Studios. A new era for DC is upon us, but new is almost certainly the keyword there. Despite some chatter, Zack Snyder, director of "Man of Steel" and "Justice League," has confirmed that he is not coming back to DC – at least not that he's aware of. He's currently filming "Rebel Moon" for Netflix and then will likely be moving on to "Planet of the Dead." So he's busy and we can put these rumors to bed.

Chris Evans misses Captain America now

With "Avengers: Endgame," Chris Evans said goodbye to the role of Captain America in the MCU and, even though he is an old man now, Steve Rogers is technically alive. Be that as it may, there is no indication that Evans is coming back. But the Sexiest Man Alive recently spoke to People about his winning of the award this year and, during the conversation, revealed that he misses playing Cap.

"When the movies end, you're very happy to have a break but very quickly you miss it. I miss it now. But I'm very grateful, very happy to have been a part of them."

Despite missing Cap, it seems like Evans has made his peace with moving on from the MCU. So, don't expect to see him show up in "Captain America: New World Order" or anything like that.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever TV spot reminds us the movie arrives tonight

Tonight is the night, Marvel fans. "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" is finally arriving in theaters and, if the box office tracking is any indication, those theaters are going to be quite busy. But for those who have somehow forgotten, or for those who just want to see a bit more footage, Marvel has released the above TV spot announcing the film's arrival tonight. There's nothing spoiler-y in here but it does contain some choice bits of new footage. Check it out above.

Director Francis Lawrence updates on the status of Constantine 2

We got a big shock earlier this year when it was revealed that a "Constantine" sequel is happening at Warner Bros. with Keanu Reeves returning to the role. Now, director Francis Lawrence has provided a little update on things to Unfortunately, it sounds like things are still in the very early stages.

"We don't have a script, but Keanu, me, and Akiva [Goldsman] who all worked on the first one together have all been trying over the years to get another one going. t's been tricky because of the DC/Vertigo world and who owns the character and who has control over the characters, trying to get the right people to go forward. We've got that now and now we need the story. We'd all love to do it."

So, with a script still needing to be written, a good guess would be late 2024 at the earliest for this one, if not 2025. Don't hold your breath.

The massive LEGO Hulkbuster set is now in stock

Finally, the massive LEGO Hulkbuster set is now in stock for those who have some money burning a hole in their bank account. This is an absolutely massive set with over 4,000 pieces that is not necessarily meant for the young ones in your life. This is more of an "adult with disposable income" LEGO set. To that end, it retails for $549.99, which is pretty steep. Luckily, LEGO limits you to two sets so you can't really spend more than $1,100, which limits the damage a bit. Those who are interested can pick one up now at
