Hulu developing two series from George R.R. Martin’s Wild Cards

Two years ago it was announced that Universal Cable Productions was developing an adaptation of Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin’s Wild Cards book series, and now comes word from THR that streaming service Hulu is opening a writers room for two TV series as part of a shared Wild Cards universe.

Launching in 1987, Wild Cards spans twenty-seven volumes to date and takes place in an alternate world where an alien virus was unleashed in the skies over Manhattan in 1946, inflecting the population of the Earth. 90% of mankind died, with 9% developing grotesque physical deformities and 1% being blessed with superhuman abilities. The virus passes down through generations and can go undetected until suddenly activated by a traumatic event — at which point the carrier is either killed, mutated or granted god-like powers. Now, after decades of sociological turmoil, having been worshipped, oppressed, exploited and ignored… Victims of the virus want to define their own future.

Brace yourselves, folks, because Winter is coming . . . along with a brand-new edition of Game of Thrones Monopoly! Hasbro joined forces with HBO to create an updated version of the popular board game, and it's chock-full of cool features that'll make you feel like you're smack-dab in the middle of Westeros.

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 Targeting Bumblebee Director?

We may have a new candidate to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in the form of Travis Knight. Many Marvel fans probably don't know him by name, but Knight is the man behind the upcoming Transformers spin-off Bumblebee, who previously helmed the critically-acclaimed animated feature Kubo and the Two Strings. According to a new rumor, Knight is one of the names on the studio's list to replace James Gunn.

Before pressing forward we must caution that, for the time being, this should be regarded as nothing more than a rumor. Even the report that broke the news cautions as much. That said, the report claims that Travis Knight was being eyed for the job directing The Eternals movie, which is in development as part of the studio's future plans beyond Avengers 4. Apparently, assuming this has any truth to it, they liked Knight enough to consider handing him the

Oscar Isaac found working on X-Men: Apocalypse “excruciating”

During an interview with GQ, actor Oscar Isaac has been reflecting on his role as the titular villain in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, describing his experience on the set of the Bryan Singer-directed superhero movie as “excruciating”.

Apocalypse, that was excruciating,” said Isaac. “I didn’t know when I said yes that that was what was going to be happening. That I was going to be encased in glue, latex and a 40-pound suit — that I had to wear a cooling mechanism at all times. I was like, ‘oh, I get to work with these great actors that I like so much,’ but I couldn’t even see them because I couldn’t move my head. And I had to sit on a specially designed saddle, because that’s the only thing I could really sit on, and I would be rolled into a cooling tent in-between takes. And every time I moved,

Every episode of Game of Thrones’ final season is over an hour long

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss may have decided to cut the episode count down to six, but we can expect bumper episodes in terms of length when Game of Thrones’ eight and final season gets underway this coming April.

Speaking on a Reddit Ama, director David Nutter – who has directed multiple episodes of the final season – stated that: “Season 8 episodes will all I think be longer than 60 minutes. They’ll be dancing around the bigger numbers, I know that for sure.”

Nutter also went on to share his thoughts on the ending of the epic fantasy series, praising the work of Benioff and Weiss in bringing a conclusion to George R.R. Martin’s story:

I’m completely satisfied with how season 8 ends. I think that [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] did a tremendous job, and they took into consideration what the fans want, as well as what is right as far as storytelling is concerned.

Mark Your Calendars: Game of Thrones Season 8 Will Premiere in April 2019

Mark Your Calendars: Game of Thrones Season 8 Will Premiere in April 2019
We've been pulling our hair out for months trying to guess when the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones would finally drop. Although Maisie Williams (our resident Arya Stark) gave an interview earlier in 2018 to UK-based paper Metro and revealed the month in which the first episode would appear - April 2019 - she later retracted her quotes in a tweet. "Just a tweet letting you know this Game of Thrones release date 'quote' I've supposedly given is completely false and taken from an interview I did years ago."

HBO didn't respond to the rumor at the time, but luckily we now have official confirmation of the premiere date courtesy of the Game of Thrones Twitter account: it is April 2019!

Every betrayal.

‘Mary, Queen of Scots’ Film Review: Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie Make Worthy, Regal Adversaries

‘Mary, Queen of Scots’ Film Review: Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie Make Worthy, Regal Adversaries
Period pieces have always been a bit bittersweet for me: Stunning costumes aside, the films rarely offer something to which a woman or a person of color can connect. Historical tales often cast women as bitter and evil, or soft and in need of rescuing, and they also erase people of color completely from existence.

Contrary to what far too many filmmakers seem to believe, people of color didn’t just drop from the sky in the past few decades. We have been here all along; we’ve fought in wars, built cities, have been part of royal courts, and lived in lands as peasants, soldiers and laypeople all over the world. And women have always been a spectrum of personalities, opinions and lifestyles, muted only for the comfort of the male gaze.

“Mary, Queen of Scots” acknowledges both the struggles of women and the fact that people of color

The Mandalorian Set Pics Reveal Some New Characters

As the first casting announcements finally come our way for The Mandalorian, another batch of set photos give us a better idea of the sort of characters we’re dealing with in this upcoming Star Wars spinoff series.

These images come courtesy of MakingStarWars.net, and though they’re not of the best quality, you can still make out a man in a brown shirt and suspenders, alongside a woman in a black cloak. There’s been some speculation that this pair is the rumored Carl Weathers of Predator and Rocky fame and the confirmed Gina Carano from Fast & Furious 6 and Deadpool, but given how difficult both of these figures are to make out, it’s hard not to see these guesses as anything other than projection.

Elsewhere in the images, you can see a figure in a brown outfit and a helmet (an ensemble highly reminiscent of
