    ‘The Weird Problem With the DC Universe’ Video Essay (Video)

    Casual fans may not realize this, and even if they have they almost certainly  haven’t paused to consider the full implications of it, but the sprawling narrative we think of as the DC Universe that in one form or another goes all the way back to the 1930s has a somewhat glaring inconsistency: Its version […]

    ‘The End of the F**king World’: UK Series Coming to Netflix (Trailer)

    There’s no better way to guarantee a hit series than building it around a psychopathic man – Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Mad Men, and Curb Your Enthusiasm being just four recent examples.

    Is Starboy becoming part of the Marvel Universe? I wouldn’t rule anything out the way things are these days, and that would appear to be one interpretation of a recent Instagram post by The Weeknd himself that cites Marvel in advance of New York Comic-Con this, uh, weekend. Other than that, we have no idea […]
