Game of Thrones is over and Kit Harington is allowed to cut his hair and pursue roles that don’t involve him slaying the undead and knowing nothing. Naturally, like any handsome rising actor with a strong jawline and a smoldering stare, he’s looking to get his superhero on. A new report claims that Harington is eyeing a role in an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe project. But which one?

Walt Disney World’s Epcot has been in an identity crisis for most of its existence. Is it an educational park? A haven for thrill rides? A dumping ground for whatever characters and concepts don’t fit anywhere else? Even those who adore the iconic second gate the Florida resort know that it’s been looking for a clear voice for a few decades now. And it looks like Disney wants to settle on that voice, because the park is getting a number of major upgrades and additions over the coming years.

While we expect to learn more about the future of Epcot in the days ahead, one thing was made clear in the opening night of the D23 convention: Epcot will become “more Disney” than ever before. Starting with a new Moana attraction.

With Avengers: Endgame now the highest grossing movie of all time, the hunger for all things Marvel superhero continues to grow.

Update: If you’re wondering what’s going on with Morpheus in this story, a new report indicates that we could see a younger version of that character pop up in this film. Our original report continues, and you can read the Morpheus-related update embedded within.

The Matrix turned 20 years old this year and here’s one way to celebrate: Warner Bros. has announced that The Matrix 4 is officially in the works. After years of rumors and tales of reboots and a revolving door of talented folks all taking a crack at this iconic and mind-bending universe, the new film will return to where it all began. Keanu Reeves will return as Neo, Carrie-Anne Moss will return as Trinity, and Lana Wachowski, who co-wrote and co-directed the original trilogy with her sister Lilly, will co-write, produce, and direct. Whoa, indeed.

New G.I. Joe Movie

You’d think “movie about a team of badass soldiers saving the planet based on a long-running media franchise with a passionate fanbase” would be easy to crack, but G.I. Joe has proven anything but.

It has writers and everything!

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy TV Series

Few writers could turn a phrase quite like the late, great Douglas Adams, whose The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series remains a high watermark for literary comedy and science fiction. Now, we’re greeted with the news that his beloved books are being adapted into a television series on Hulu and I’m reminded of one of his best quotes: “Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.” 

Substitute “space” for “online streaming” and it still works. Eventually, there will be enough streaming platforms to accommodate series adaptations of every single thing you have ever loved.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Doctor Stephen Strange was dusted by Thanos at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, but we didn’t need the events of Avengers: Endgame to know that the master of the mystic arts would be back. Late last year, it was reported that director Scott Derrickson would return for Doctor Strange 2. Naturally, this also meant the return of a (living) Doctor Strange, once again played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

But now, Marvel Studios has made it official. The first proper sequel to Doctor Strange (aside from the character’s appearances in Endgame, Infinity War, and Thor: Ragnarok) is on the way – the incredibly named Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Here’s what you need to know.
