X-Men's Rogue and Gambit getting ready to kiss

For the first time, Marvel is giving fan-favorite X-Men couple Rogue and Gambit their own comic book series.

Over the past few years, fans have been accusing Marvel of reducing their focus on Fantastic Four and X-Men characters due to the fact that the movie rights to the two properties currently belong to 20th Century Fox. Though this may be true for the Fantastic Four, Marvel is continuing to pump out X-Men titles. While Marvel may have dropped team-focused titles such as X-Force, All-New X-Men, and X-Factor, the company has doubled down on launching titles for individual characters including Cyclops, Magneto, and Nightcrawler.

Some of these classic kills are even directly referenced by the diminutive death dealer in Cult, such as the time he beat a mean teacher to death with a yardstick in Child’s Play 2.

True to his legacy of murder, Chucky doesn’t take ...

New promo images from Justice League highlight the nighttime view of the DC universe, while offering up the first look at Cyborg’s interface. Heading into Justice League, audiences should be prepared for plenty of fresh ideas to join the growing cinematic universe of DC characters. This will include the true introductions to a few future Justice Leaguers, with audiences now getting to properly meet Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).

Denis Villeneuve Arrival

Denis Villeneuve says he was initially frightened by the prospect of making Blade Runner: 2049. The long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi film, Blade Runner (loosely adapted from Philip K. Dick’s novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), comes 35 years after the original movie hit theaters and changed the scope of the genre forever.
