Miss Minutes to Return In Marvel's Timeless Comic

"Loki" had a lot going for it. But the Disney+ show gifted us with a new character to love in the form of Miss Minutes, voiced by the amazing Tara Strong. Well, it turns out Miss Minutes is going to get some more time to shine in the near future. As reported by Games Radar, the character is set to feature on a cover for the upcoming event series "Timeless." This is fitting, as the event will center on Kang the Conquerer, who ended up being a big part of "Loki" and is poised to be a huge part of the MCU going forward.

For a little context, here's the logline for "Timeless:"

When a threatening new timeline emerges, Kang the Conqueror must fight his way through the coming year to protect the main 616 timeline he's worked centuries to solidify as his own.

"Timeless" #1 is set to hit shelves in December.

Andi Armaganian directed the episode written by Steve Harper.

Black Lightning Funko POP! Figures Are On the Way

"Black Lightning" wrapped up its four-season run on The CW earlier this year. That is sad. But the good news is, the show leaves behind quite a few fans and a lasting legacy. As such, the folks at Funko have revealed that they have a new line of POP! figures based on the DC Comics TV show coming later this year. The line includes Black Lightning, Thunder, Lightning, and Tobias Whale. Pre-orders are available now, for those who are interested.

Ms. Marvel is Officially Bumped to 2022 on Disney+

While it hard largely been suspected, it has now been confirmed. According to a new report from Variety, "Ms. Marvel" will now arrive on Disney+ in 2022. The good news is we're still getting "Hawkeye" before year's end. And fear not, fans, as Kamala Khan will get her time to shine soon enough.

The series stars Iman Vellani in the lead role, with Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, Travina Springer, and Nimra Bucha rounding out the ensemble.

The Venom 2 TV Spots Are Rolling In

On the "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" front, we have a new TV spot for the upcoming sequel. It doesn't bring much in the way of new footage. It does, however, serve as an indication that this movie is just around the corner, as it's set to arrive in theaters on October 1. You can check out the latest TV spot for yourself in the video above.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage R-Rating Was Considered

Speaking of "Venom: Let There Be Carnage," the sequel is going to hit theaters next month as a PG-13 movie. That shouldn't come as a surprise given how well the first movie did at the box office. But there was some hope that the filmmakers would push for the big R this time around. While speaking with, star Tom Hardy and director Andy Serkis addressed the topic and explained that it was at least considered.

"100% we considered it," Hardy said. "With all of these symbiotes, you know, you consider it. You read the comic books and it is extreme, but that's not what we're here to do."

Serkis expanded on the topic a bit, explaining that they feel some things are better left to the imagination.

"Sometimes leaving things to the imagination is as powerful too. We pushed it as far as we could possibly go, but with some room to go in people's heads. That character is pretty scary and the kind of the truth of where that character emanates from and Cletus Kasady is a character that is amplified through Carnage, does a lot of the work. So I think we certainly fulfill a lot of the essence of Carnage."
