Image's Middlewest Is a Heartbreaking Reflection on Growing Up with Emotional Abuse Image's Middlewest Is a Heartbreaking Reflection on Growing Up with Emotional Abuse

Image’s Middlewest, from writer Skottie Young and artists Jorge Corona and Jean-Francois Beaulieu, is the sort of comic book that sits differently with you depending on what your childhood was like. For some, it’s a story about a young boy discovering the hidden magic woven into the place he’s always called home,…

A Murderous Batman Is Coming to Titans' Explosive Season Finale

While the first season of DC Universe’s Titans has focused mainly on its titular heroes’ paths to finding each other and becoming the only team capable of averting the oncoming apocalypse, the trailer for the show’s season finale makes a hard pivot into a new story about the world’s greatest detective.

There's a Very Good Reason Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse's Spanish Isn't Subtitled There's a Very Good Reason Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse's Spanish Isn't Subtitled

The fact that Miles Morales is a biracial kid who grew up in a multilingual household doesn’t always factor into how he saves the world as Spider-Man, but it’s an aspect of his identity that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse writer Phil Lord made sure was part of the hero’s big-screen debut.

Netflix Says Its Marvel Shows Really Weren't That Binge-Worthy This Year Netflix Says Its Marvel Shows Really Weren't That Binge-Worthy This Year

A New Study Reports That Movies Led by Women Earn More Than Those Led by Men A New Study Reports That Movies Led by Women Earn More Than Those Led by Men

To listen to the way that internet trolls go on about how women becoming the central characters of franchises like Star Wars have somehow “ruined” the movies, one might be tempted to entertain the idea that women are bad for business. Common sense would tell you that isn’t at all the case, and now there’s statistical…

Exclusive: Grant Morrison Opens Up About Feuding With Alan Moore and Why He Still Doesn't Like Watchmen Exclusive: Grant Morrison Opens Up About Feuding With Alan Moore and Why He Still Doesn't Like Watchmen

Much like Sophia Loren and Gina Lollobrigida, two icons of old Hollywood who were notorious for their longstanding rivalry, comics giants Grant Morrison and Alan Moore have never been great at keeping one another’s names outside of their mouths, especially when asked about why they don’t see eye to eye.

Newest Glass Trailer Blurs the Line Between Fantasy and Reality Newest Glass Trailer Blurs the Line Between Fantasy and Reality

One of the most interesting questions about M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming Glass feature is just how big the film’s stakes are going to get, considering that it features on a evil super genius, an unbreakable man, and a being who might as well be a near-invulnerable demon. There are a number of directions the movie…

Netflix's Carmen Sandiego Reboot Has a New Premiere Date and Some Mysterious Teaser Images Netflix's Carmen Sandiego Reboot Has a New Premiere Date and Some Mysterious Teaser Images

It seems like it was forever ago when Netflix swooped in out of nowhere and dropped a piece of mysterious teaser art announcing its upcoming Carmen Sandiego reboot. Since then, there hasn’t been all that much revealed about the new series, but today, the studio announced a new release date and dropped a handful of…

Andy Serkis Doing Gollum as a Brexit-Hungry Theresa May Is the Last Thing You Will See Before You Die

Things have not been going too swell for British Prime Minister Theresa May as of late. After a majority of ministers within the House of Commons voted to find the British government in contempt of Parliament (for the first time in history) for not publishing details about May’s much-maligned Brexit plan that was…

Newest Godzilla: King of the Monsters Trailer Heralds a New Age of Kaiju Gods

As artful as the first trailer for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters was, it was sorely lacking in the way of epic, city-destroying kaiju battles, a disappointment considering just how many classic monsters are slated to appear in the film. The second trailer, thankfully, is a remedy to that.

The Latest Once Upon a Deadpool Trailer Is Basically an Ad for Nickelback The Latest Once Upon a Deadpool Trailer Is Basically an Ad for Nickelback

How many Once Upon a Deadpool ads starring Fred Savage can Fox squeeze out before there’s nothing new in the movie left to entice audiences back into the theater to see a movie it’s already seen? At least three, apparently.

Krampus Is Less Scary, More Sexy in A Christmas Horror Story

A Christmas Horror Story is the odd kind of movie you can catch in the middle of the night during a Christmas-themed horror marathon—and somehow find yourself riveted, mostly because of the way the Canadian import manages to be legitimately frightening despite its cheesiness. Also, because who doesn’t like watching…

Life Is a Game With Impossibly High Stakes in This Week's Best New Comics Life Is a Game With Impossibly High Stakes in This Week's Best New Comics

Though we don’t always think of them as such, the games we play as children (and, let’s be honest—as adults) often help us creatively process information in ways that end up being useful in our everyday lives. For the heroes of this week’s best new comics, though, the lines between fantasy and reality are so blurred…

Let Gwen Stacy Show Off Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse's Coolest Plot Device

Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse pulls more than a few of Marvel’s Spider-heroes across interdimensional barriers in order to unite them for a fight to save the multiverse. Because the movie’s got so many characters, though, it has to be clever about how to introduce them all in a quick, stylish way.

Miles Morales Is the Most Relatable Person Ever in This New Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Clip

Regardless of who’s wearing the suit, one of the things that defines Spider-Man is the fact that the hero’s supposed to be a kind of an everyman. Relatable. Understandable. Exceptional, but still very much a regular person with the kinds of issues we’ve all got. Like, for instance, a huge problem with procrastination.

Fred Savage Grills Ryan Reynolds on the Reason for a PG-13 Deadpool Fred Savage Grills Ryan Reynolds on the Reason for a PG-13 Deadpool

With Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox all but agreed upon, there have been a number of questions as to how the House of Mouse might go about incorporating all of Fox’s old Marvel IP into the larger cinematic universe—especially properties like Deadpool, which has found box office success by going for hard…

Spider-Man and Deadpool Just Took the Piss Out of DC's Mister Miracle in the Best Way Spider-Man and Deadpool Just Took the Piss Out of DC's Mister Miracle in the Best Way

A series like Robbie Thompson, Jim Towe, Sean Parsons, and Brian Reber’s Spider-Man/Deadpool is exactly where you’d expect to see Marvel gently poking fun at its fellow comics houses, but it’s going to be difficult to top the jabs put on display in this week’s new issue.
