Pour some Slurpee out for our fallen comrade, comrades.
Alexei strikes back: David Harbour's Black Widow role has Twitter in a Stranger Things tizzy @ Syfy Wire
Marvel made several announcements at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend regarding the next phase of things. Obviously, Spider-man will continue to swing around the MCU, but we’re also getting the Black Widow movie (May 1, 2020), an unidentified movie later in fall, The Eternals (November 2020) Shang-chi (Feb. 12, 2021), with the actual ringed Mandarin opposing Canadian actor Simu Liu as the Master of Kung-Fu (February 2021), the next Doctor Strange film (May 2021), a new Thor film (November 2021) that will reportedly feature Natalie Portman rejoining Chris Helmsworth to become the female Thor, and the previously announced Scarlet Witch/Vision, Falcon/Winter Soldier, and Loki series all appearing in 2021.
They’ve also confirmed we’ll see a new Blade, sequels to Captain Marvel, Black Panther and the Guardians of the Galaxy, and an MCU Fantastic Four. They just don’t have dates yet for these blockbusters.
What do you want to see from the next phase?
Will the Netflix Defenders turn up in a couple of years, when Disney can use them?
Will we ever see that Squirrel Girl movie? The She-Hulk? Will Howard the Duck ever be allowed more than a cameo?
And what will tie these films together? The Eternals? A war with Atlantis? Adam Warlock and the Magus? Doctor Doom? Ruby Thursday and the Headmen? Or will we witness the coming of Galactus?
San Diego Comic-Con 2019 is here, and we here at SYFY WIRE have been in the thick of it. As a convention veteran myself, I’m always saying that it’s so amazing how each and every person’s individual convention experience differs. For some people, the entire purpose of going to SDCC is to check out the programming and panels. For others, it’s getting to meet celebrities, get their autographs, and take photos. There’s an entire cosplay community set on creating costumes of their favorite characters and bringing them to life.
Neopets is 20 years old this year. The online world of adorable creatures for you to take care of and decorate is almost legal enough to drink. If all of that doesn't get you, take a moment to remember all the Neopets you've abandoned.
LEGO DC: Batman: Family Matters held its world premiere at this year's San Diego Comic Con
SDCC 2019: Snowpiercer cast previews the upcoming series and life aboard a massive train @ Syfy Wire
Life can be difficult when you're living in the post-apocalyptic barren wasteland of Earth after the second Ice Age has claimed most of humanity. That's especially true when you and the rest of the surviving humans are forced to spend your days endlessly circumnavigating the world on a 1,100 car-long train where the status quo is about to be upended.
The Bureau 42 Master Audio Feed has been updated to make it easier to follow individual shows in players that support seasons.

The Man in the High Castle is back for one last season on Amazon Prime Video this fall and there are big changes coming to the series.
First of all, it's a full year after the end of Season 3 and things are looking rough for our would-be revolutionaries. Families, friends, allies, and loved ones have been torn apart for far too long, and the resistance has their enemies breathing down their backs. Of course, there's still a lot of change to come as the heroes continue their fight against the Reich and a new insurgency brews.
Based on the novel of the same name by Joe Hill, NOS4A2 has already been picked up for a second season at AMC. At San Diego Comic-Con this week, we sat down with Joe, executive producer Jami O'Brien, and stars Zachary Quinto (Charlie) and Ashleigh Cummings (Vic) to discuss the DNA of the show.
Every San Diego Comic-Con, Hasbro lifts the lid on what fans can expect from its line of toys and collectibles from the galaxy far, far away as well as the comics and movie universes of Marvel. This year is no exception, with everything from some very cute Star Wars figures to...Squirrel Girl on a moped?? Hell yeah!
Ever since the pilot episode of The Flash, Crisis on Infinite Earths has been a sword hanging over Barry Allen's head. The Flash is destined to disappear during the Crisis and never return. That's why we were shocked when we caught up with Grant Gustin at Comic-Con. He admitted that he's never actually read the Crisis comic!
Ahead of tonight's midseason finale of Fear the Walking Dead, we got the scoop from four of the stars at San Diego Comic-Con: Danay Garcia (Luciana), Alexa Nisenson (Charlie), Ruben Blades (Daniel), and Jenna Elfman (June).
Dungeons & Dragons Is Celebrating 5 Years of the 5th Edition With a Gorgeous Return to Its First Adventure @ io9
When Dungeons & Dragons rebooted its ruleset for its 5th official edition back in 2014, alongside the rules, Wizards of the Coast offered an epic battle against Tiamat herself as the first adventure for new heroes to deal with. Now, five years on, they’re revisiting it for a special, and rather fabulous looking treat.
The fourth season of The Expanse is on its way — and on a new network — later this year, and the move to Amazon Prime Video isn't the only big change coming. The Ring Gates are open and there are whole new worlds to explore — and resources to fight over. The cast of the hit sci-fi series was in town for San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and we took the opportunity to catch up with the crew of the Rocinante.
This fall will see the eighth and final season of Arrow on The CW. The superhero show that launched an entire universe of superhero shows (the Arrowverse) will end its run next year, and it has its cast reflecting on the legacy they have wrought.
The heat of summer hasn’t slowed the few programs down at all. Legion reminds us how strong he is as he goes to war. Supergrandad continues his war against Zod as the God/Zod puns continue. Sherlock Holmes faces, or possibly works with, a god. The Swamp Thing is anatomically correct. The SHIELD Agents revisit their past.

Young Justice: Outsiders – S03E19 – Elder Wisdom – [No Description.]
The Handmaid’s Tale – S03E10 – Bear Witness – [No Description.]
Krypton – S02E07 – Zods and Monsters – General Zod pushes for control of a dominating weapon; Seg and Nyssa fight to save Seg’s life.
Elementary – S07E10 – The Latest Model – Holmes and Watson receive a shocking request to collaborate from their foe, Odin Reichenbach, when the tech billionaire asks them to test his new crime prevention system. Tasked with investigating someone the program predicts will soon commit a crime, the duo worries Odin will take drastic action before they conclude their inquiry.
Swamp Thing – S01E09 – The Anatomy Lesson – While Abby and Liz track down the secret Conclave facility, Jason Woodrue conducts experiments on Swamp Thing and makes an incredible discovery.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – S06E11 – From the Ashes – Out of answers and running out of time, the agents must face the ghosts of their past in order to move forward.
SDCC: Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans world premiere is a wild ride through DC multiverse @ Syfy Wire
What happens when two different teams of Teen Titans come together? Good question. Fans curious to learn the answer turned out for the world premiere of Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans at San Diego Comic-Con. SYFY WIRE was there to get a first look at the eagerly anticipated team-up.
It was announced the film is set for digital release on August 24, with the DVD and Blu-Ray editions hitting in October.
When some concrete info on the Black Widow solo film finally dropped last night at San Diego Comic-Con, all the hints pointed toward Taskmaster, a dude with the power to instantly replicate any physical action he sees, as the villain. Now, with the release of a new official illustration, that’s pretty much confirmed.
For months, CBS All Access has told us that Star Trek: Picard would be a more character-focused series and not a sequel to Star Trek: The Next Generation. However, the Comic-Con Picard trailer and subsequent Star Trek Universe panel revealed more TNG connections than previously indicated. Now, SYFY WIRE Con After Dark is breaking down the Picard trailer for clues and theories!
To say that there were big surprises unveiled at the Marvel Studios panel during San Diego Comic-Con would be an understatement. Some big projects that we all have expected for a while were made official, but some others came out of nowhere.
Riverdale reveals Season 4 secrets at SDCC, teases Luke Perry tribute with Shannen Doherty @ Syfy Wire
Every season of Riverdale is packed with story, but even with that in mind the show's third season seemed particularly jam-packed with teen drama fun. The season kicked off with Archie's murder trial, then wasted no time introducing elements of The Farm and the looming nemesis that was The Gargoyle.
TBS’s Snowpiercer debuted its first trailer at its San Diego Comic-Con panel, along with an extended scene giving us a look at what’s to come. The action was impressive, making the audience feel just as jostled and terrified as the folks on the train. But the real victims were the cows—and after the scene was over,…
Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen is perhaps the most provocative piece of comic book history in the modern era and set the stage for psychologically challenged antiheroes and grim, graphic novel-type narratives still playing out today in all mediums.
What the Doom Patrol panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con lacked in the way of footage from the show’s upcoming second season, it made up for with an interesting bit of news. It might be easier for people to get into the series in coming months courtesy of Warner Bros.’ newest streaming endeavor HBO.
Get that box of tissues ready, because Sam and Dean Winchester conjured some major feels at Sunday's Supernatural event at San Diego Comic-Con. The ageless CW series has enjoyed one of TV's most successful long-term runs, devlishly burrowing its way into fans' devious little hearts so deeply over the course of its 14 seasons that it's hard to imagine the upcoming 15th season will be
Scooby-Doo's most classic adventures typically involve more guest stars than the actual gang, but one direct-to-video '90s hit was the exception to this rule. Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island (1998) was the first film in the long-running direct-to-video series and had a tone that was actually pretty dang scary.
New episodes of The Expanse are officially coming our way in December—and we now have a better idea of what to expect from the sci-fi show’s fourth season, its first after moving from Syfy to Amazon Prime. The first trailer and clip from the new season blew our minds, but we pulled it together to absorb even more…
In the circle of life, the lion beats the spider.
At least, that's the takeaway from the box office this weekend, as Disney's CGI, photorealistic The Lion King remake took the top spot at the box office. Jon Favreau's film raked in an estimated $192 million, counting Thursday night preview screenings.
More than a year has passed since we got the explosive finale of Westworld season two and it’ll be several more months until we find out what happens next. However, at Comic-Con 2019, the show’s creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy took the stage with stars Thandie Newton, Aaron Paul, Tessa Thompson, Evan Rachel Wood,…
Thousands of fans poured into San Diego Comic-Con’s Ballroom 20 yesterday expecting to see the Arrow cast’s emotional farewell during a panel for the show’s final season. That’s exactly what they saw (tears were shed), but what no one expected to witness was a very excited Brandon Routh (Legends of Tomorrow) with some …
San Diego Comic-Con’s Marvel Studios panel was almost too much, with huge reveal after huge reveal about Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Two of the biggest announcements to come out it were Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) becoming the new Thor, and Mahershala Ali joining the MCU as Blade. We talked with Marvel…
Welcome back to Look of the Week, celebrating the best in TV and film sartorial excellence, past and present across sci-fi, horror, fantasy, and other genre classics!
What happens when your city is suddenly invaded by fairies, fauns, centaurs and other creatures you thought only existed in fantasy books? Do you accept them, or cast them out?
Barry Allen’s fought all manner of frighteningly imaginative villains on the CW’s The Flash (and more than enough fellow speedsters, thank you very much), but in the first trailer for the series’ sixth season, the fastest man alive’s facing off against the sort of horrific foe you wouldn’t expect to pop up on a show…
Last year AMC debuted the first season of The Terror, based on Dan Simmons' chilling 2007 historical horror novel centering around a doomed 19th century British arctic expedition to discover the Northwest Passage and a mythological snow monster stalking the starving sailors as they're trapped in endless sheets of polar ice.
Impulse is an engaging new 10-episode sci-fi series that debuted last June on YouTube Premium starring Maddie Hasson as Henrietta 'Henry' Coles, a teenager who discovers she has the uncanny ability to teleport anywhere in the world yet her eventual destination is always random and beyond her control.
Witness me! San Diego Comic-Con is entering its final day, but the cosplay showcase is far from over. io9's latest video and photos highlight the fantastic looks from Saturday—arguably the best day for cosplay at San Diego Comic-Con. Excelsior, my friends. Excelsior.
If you've ever seen Farscape, Dinosaurs, the original live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or any of the fantastical projects produced by the Jim Henson company, you must appreciate the genius of Brian Henson.
The third time was the charm for Lisa Henson. At San Diego Comic-Con Friday, the daughter of legendary filmmaker Jim Henson said she’d been to Comic-Con two times before with a Dark Crystal project. Neither of those panned out. It wasn’t until this time, sitting in front of 7,000 fans inside Hall H, with a brand new …
While Comic-Con is always a highlight for SYFY WIRE, this year's show is a bit bittersweet in part because we're losing The Good Place. The unconventional sitcom is wrapping up its four season run on NBC this fall, and it's a tough one to let go. We forking love it, as Kristen Bell might say on the show.
While Rick and Morty made its triumphant return to Comic-Con, co-creator and star Justin Roiland was also on hand to promote his new Hulu series, Solar Opposites. It's an adult-themed animated comedy about an alien family hiding out on Earth. Roiland co-created the series with Mike McMahan, and he also stars as the voices of Terry and Korvo. Sean Giambrone's Yumyulack and Mary Mack's Jesse round out the core members of the cast.

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “Alita: Battle Angel was, in my view, an intensely underrated film from last year, and I’d say it’s definitely worth picking up. On the anime front, Nichijou is a tremendously wonderful anime series, with tremendously well written gags, and gorgeously fluid animation. It is a fantastic example of the excellent work that Kyoto Animation had been doing – and I hope will be able to continue to do in the future.”
There are big changes ahead for Supergirl as she enters her fifth season this fall, and we don't just mean her new pants! Although we are going to talk about Kara's upgraded outfit, there’s a key cast departure coming soon. And then there's Crisis on Infinite Earths, the upcoming crossover event. According to co-star Chyler Leigh, Crisis will transform the series in the second half of the fifth season.
There's an old expression that's still true today: "never meet your heroes." It's especially true in the world of Amazon Prime's The Boys. As envisioned by the creators of the comic, Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys takes place in a world where almost every superhero is selfish and vindictive. Somebody has to put them in their place, and that's where the Boys come in. They watch the Watchmen, so to speak. And sometimes, they have to be put down.
Marvel’s back in Hall H after a short hiatus and it’s brought an incredible amount of news to celebrate its return. From the cast of The Eternals film, to details on Black Widow’s last (?) hurrah, to some idea of what actual movies will go with all those release dates Disney and Marvel already announced through 2022.
It’s been a hot minute since we actually got to see DC Universe’s animated Harley Quinn series in action. But at Comic-Con today, DC gave us another glimpse at Harleen’s zany antics, and she’s still taking a page out of a certain other hero’s playbook by delivering the metahumor in spades.
This year's SDCC got a sh** ton funnier when DC Universe debuted the first episode of its animated Harley Quinn series. Feeling like a true cousin to Marvel's Deadpool, the season premiere is a hilarious, meta, and violently refreshing deconstruction of the iconic Gotham mythos. Before the pilot screened, Kaley Cuoco introduced it with a pre-filmed video message, voicing her excitement and desire to craft a brand-new version of the character fans have never seen before.
Discovery. Picard. Lower Decks. And that’s just the start of the topics covered at CBS’s wide-ranging “Enter the Star Trek Universe” panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
Doom Patrol is coming back for Season 2, and fans will have more options to watch their superpowered group therapy sessions than ever before.
The Walking Dead's Greg Nicotero Talks Creepshow and Its Connection to His Lifelong Love of Horror @ io9
Horror anthology film Creepshow has become a horror anthology TV show, thanks to Shudder and The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero. Details on the six-episode series have been trickling in since the series was announced, but now there’s a trailer—and at Friday’s Comic-Con panel, we got details galore from showrunner…
As Pietro Maximoff might say, "What, you didn't see that coming?" No, we did not see it coming. We probably should have, but an already emotional day full of surprises at San Diego Comic-Con did not prepare us for the insanity that Marvel Studios unleashed at its Saturday panel.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4 is here. And it's blowing our minds.
It's easy to make jokes about Wesley Crusher. In terms of characters that appeared on Star Trek: The Next Generation, he's not exactly a classic, is he? Just don't diss him too much in front of Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ).
A Black Widow solo movie is coming. And, at Comic-Con 2019, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was joined by star Scarlett Johansson, director Cate Shortland, and several other cast members to debut the first footage.
You never really know what to expect when Marvel comes to San Diego Comic-Con. Case in point, at their giant panel today, Kevin Feige announced out of absolutely nowhere that Blade was officially becoming a part of the MCU.
Marvel Studios took over the vast Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center on Saturday evening to finally unveil its long-awaited upcoming slate of films and TV shows. Over the course of more than an hour in a panel hosted by Jessica Chobot, studio head Kevin Feige guided fans through ten different movie and streaming projects all set to arrive over the course of 2020 and 2021. Then, just when it seemed the Hall H crowd couldn't take anymore, Feige had a few more teases up his sleeve.
The Magicians are bringing their sexy blend of spellslinging back to TV soon, which means the fan-centric circuit is in full swing. The SYFY show has been a delightfully bonkers and queer-as-hell treat over its four seasons, and now, with a fifth on the horizon, it's headed back to San Diego Comic-Con with a ton of crew in tow
It's only been a couple of days since it was announced that Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi would return and helm Thor 4, but the filmmaker, along with Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, took the stage at San Diego Comic-Con today to entice fans as to what we could expect from the Asgardian's latest outing — while also revealing its full name.
The Flash continued to push narrative boundaries last season, introducing Barry and Iris’ time-displaced future daughter while also weaving it all into a big ol’ Reverse-Flash conspiracy plot. So, where does the story go from there? Two different arcs, Wally West's return, Crisis set-up, and a new Big Bad in Bloodwork.
Marvel Studios is dropping all kinds of news out of San Diego Comic-Con, you didn’t think they’d forget their big heroes heading to the little screen did you?
Last we saw Thor's (adopted) brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), he was presumably choked to death by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. But Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige just revealed to attendees at San Diego Comic-Con's Hall H on Saturday evening (including SYFY WIRE): "We're going to find out where Loki went" in his upcoming new spinoff series for Disney+.
