Venom trailer

Venom! He’s got a big tongue! And he showed up at Comic-Con 2018 in Hall H. Or at least, his movie did. The actual Venom didn’t show because he is a fictional character from the funny pages. And yet, he has his own feature film now! Here’s what went down during the Venom Comic-Con 2018 panel.

Star Trek Discovery - season 2 cast

Every Star Trek show beyond the original series tends to have a shaky first season, and Star Trek: Discovery was no exception. But the CBS All Access series showed promise – promise that could very well be fulfilled by season 2.

The first footage from season 2 premiered at the show’s Comic-Con panel (watch it below), but that wasn’t the only thing worth noting. The show’s cast and producers were also on hand and they revealed some nifty tidbits about what to expect, including the return of not one, but two characters from Trek canon.

Green, star Jamie Lee Curtis and more took to Hall H at Comic-Con 2018 and showed the audience a new extended trailer – and it looked terrifying.

Peyton Reed spoiler interview

From Ant-Man to Bring It On to his crowning achievement, Down With Love, there’s a sincere buoyancy to director Peyton Reed‘s work. His deft control of tone is currently on display in Ant-Man and the Wasp, which brings good-hearted laughs to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Infinity War‘s downer ending. While Reed made Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) origin story a heist movie, the sequel is a comedy focused more on banter and character than action – though the action is bigger this time around.

Before making the latest entry in the MCU, Reed watched “the holy trinity of romantic comedies”: Philadelphia Story, His Girl Friday, and It Happened One Night. “The male and female characters are so smart, and there’s this mutual respect between those characters, particularly in His Girl Friday, they respect each other in terms of what they do,” he told us. Reed, who’s also fond of those movies’ “incredible humanism,” also discussed returning to the Quantum Realm, mini Paul Rudd, the end credits tags, the influence of Elmore Leonard, and more. Read our full Peyton Reed spoiler interview below.

Cloak and Dagger ghost stories review

But the mood was heightened by truths (both subtle and not-so-subtle) that were revealed over the course of the episode. Here’s what we learned this week. Read More »

James Gordon in The Dark Knight

(Welcome to The Dark Knight Legacy, a series of articles that explore Christopher Nolan’s superhero masterpiece in celebration of its 10th anniversary.)

For all The Dark Knight‘s talk of the heroes we deserve as the ones we need right now, not enough credit gets given to the film’s true hero. Batman and Harvey Dent can go to Hero Hell: Lieutenant (and later Commissioner) Jim Gordon is the only one of the film’s three hero figures deserving of the title. Read More »
