The Hunt’s Director Says the Movie Was Never Meant to Divide Audiences

In the wake of three back-to-back mass shootings and criticism from Donald Trump, Universal ultimately decided to shelve Craig Zobel’s The Hunt. The film was obviously meant to provoke audiences by tapping into our current political climate, but in a new interview, Zobel explained how he never meant for the film to be anything other than a piece of pointed commentary.

Little Known She-Ra Spinoff He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Is Being Rebooted by Netflix

Just so we’re all on the same page regarding the important information, there are currently no plans for Netflix’s excellent She-Ra and the Princesses of Power to somehow incorporate He-Man’s prince Adam into its story. But that’s not to say that He-Man’s not about to come back in a big way. Read More >>

The Boys’ Superhero Cheesecake Calendar Is, Uh, Fish-Flavoured

Even though superheroes are people with idealised bodies that we’re supposed to ogle and wonder at, because of how seemingly impossible they are, it’s rare that you see male-bodied heroes objectified in a way that highlights their sex appeal. Every so often, you might get a glimpse of Nightwing’s ass or Batman’s wang, but those are always made out to be bigger deals than they need to be. Read More >>

A New Study Reminds Us How Ridiculous Spoiler Culture Has Become

Not a day goes by without someone, somewhere on the internet, feeling the need to express how they’ve been personally harmed by a news site focused on genre entertainment that committed the unforgivable sin of running headlines that very vaguely allude to the interesting parts of films and shows. “I have been slain by spoilers,” these people cry. “Why have you slain me?” Read More >>

The Boys’ Critique of Megacorporations is Pretty Rich

Vought International, the American company that manages the entire country’s population of licensed superheroes in the world of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s The Boys, is a capitalistic leviathan with tentacles reaching into the worlds of law enforcement, the entertainment industry, the military, and a number of other major parts of general society.

Dark Phoenix’s VFX Supervisor Opens Up About the Astonishing Jean Grey That Could Have Been

Simon Kinberg’s Dark Phoenix will go down in history as one of the most perplexing of Fox’s X-Men films. It was a movie that didn’t seem to know what it wanted to be – or even who the X-Men are, frankly. One minute, the X-Men are jetting off into space to have a literally out-of-this-world adventure that brings them face to face with aliens, and the next, you’ve got Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey crying in a rainy alleyway.

Swamp Thing Died a Beautiful, Misunderstood Virgin in Its Messy Series Finale

Swamp Thing’s season one finale “Loose Ends” is aptly named. It’s the first of the ill-fated series’ episodes that telegraphs just how suddenly Warner Bros. cancelled the show, while also reducing the length of the season from 13 episodes to 10 (while the crew was still shooting). It’s a hurried attempt to weave together several slow-growing narratives into a send off that tries to do its characters justice and make a statement about what kind of show Swamp Thing was always trying to be—a show that the studio seemingly didn’t understand.

Amazon’s The Boys Is a Morbidly Frank Breath of Fresh Air About the Cult of Superhero Worship

The cynicism of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s The Boys isn’t something that you can dismiss in the age of comic book adaptations we’re currently living through, and Amazon’s done nothing to downplay that fact with its new series based on the book. Whether we like to admit it or not, superheroes and the corporations that created them have become integral parts of our general pop-cultural discourse, and that reality is something worth unpacking.

Jake Gyllenhaal Thinks Far From Home’s Post-Credits Scene is Part of Spider-Man’s Evolution

Because it was marketed as a lighthearted follow up to Avengers: EndgameSpider-Man: Far From Home didn’t initially seem as if it was going to be a movie that had any sort of major repercussions for the larger MCU. It was just going to be a movie about Peter Parker bopping around Europe and befriending weirdos in capes. But then the film hit cinemas and people actually go to see Marvel Studios’ take on Mysterio. Read More >>
