‘The Runaways’ Teaser: Hulu Announces The Superhero Teen Drama Returns In December

There have been fast and loose rumors that Marvel TV could swing back into the control of Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige after the 20th Century Fox/Disney deal is done sometime in 2019. And frankly, that feels, given how many different wheels and cogs there are at Marvel and all the disparate networks they work with—ABC, Fox, Netflix, Hulu, FreeForm, etc.— like serious wishful thinking.

26 Streaming TV Shows You Can Binge in a Weekend (Photos)

  • The Wrap
Enjoying some time off for Independence Day this year, but stuck inside without a barbecue to attend?

But sometimes you want something short, rather than to get sucked into a seasons-long TV show. Here’s a list of binge-worthy shows you can finish in just a couple days.

“Altered Carbon” (Netflix)

A gritty sci-fi murder mystery, “Altered Carbon” takes place in the distant future, where consciousness can be downloaded and people can switch bodies to live forever — if they can afford it. Action-packed and twisty, “Altered Carbon” is a great 10-episode mystery to work through on your days off.

Official Trailer for Rockin' New Joan Jett Documentary 'Bad Reputation'

"I'm lucky I'm still here... We had to fight on!" Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for a documentary titled Bad Reputation, a profile of rock star Joan Jett of The Runaways (and much more). This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and also played at other festivals including Montclair, San Francisco, Sydney, Melbourne, and a few others this year. Made by an extreme sports junkie and music video director who has moved into feature documentaries, the film is a bit more than just a look back at Joan Jett's life. The film "gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene, and their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage." Hell yes. This looks badass, no doubt, and I'm curious to see how much Jett dishes on everything and everyone in the punk scene back then.

‘Bad Reputation’ Trailer: Joan Jett Will Run Away With Your Rock ‘n Roll Heart in Sundance Documentary

‘Bad Reputation’ Trailer: Joan Jett Will Run Away With Your Rock ‘n Roll Heart in Sundance Documentary
As much as we may love Kristen Stewart’s brooding take on Joan Jett from 2010’s eponymous The Runaways biopic, nothing compares to the real deal. The authorized documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and charts Jett’s rise to rock ‘n roll royalty, including the rampant sexism she and her band experienced. In addition to interviews with Jett and her frequent producer and songwriter Kenny Laguna, “Bad Reputation” also features an eclectic mix of her admirers, such as Billie Joe Armstrong, Miley Cyrus, Debbie Harry, Nikki Haley, Iggy Pop, Kristen Stewart, and Pete Townshend.

Directed by Kevin Kerslake (“As I Am: The Life and Times of DJ Am”) and written by Joel Marcus, the film promises a wealth of archival footage and a wild jaunt through the blossoming ’70s punk scene. As Magnolia’s official synopsis reads: “The theme is clear: even though people tried

Every Marvel Comics Live-Action TV Show Ranked, from ‘Spider-Man’ to ‘Luke Cage’

  • The Wrap
The recent crop of hit Netflix shows aren’t the first time Marvel has taken its heroes to the small screen. Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, Blade and even knock-off-ish X-Men have had a go before the current golden age. Here are all the Marvel shows you’ve seen and a few you might not have, ranked from goofiest pajama costumes to best character-driven dramas.

18. “The Amazing Spider-Man” (1977-79)

A 1977 attempt at a live-action “Spider-Man” is a fun throwback — but in a purely ironic way because Peter Parker’s wall-crawling “special effects” are pretty cringe-worthy. Watching Spider-Man fight guys using extremely hokey choreography gives the whole thing a pretty goofy vibe.

17. “Spidey Super Stories” (1974-1977)

Some days, Spider-Man takes on some super-boring villains. He goes up against The Prankster (a school principal who keeps pranking his students) and The Spoiler (who just likes to everyday things for people) in these goofy

‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 TV Review: Still Doesn’t Quite Know What It Wants to Be

‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 TV Review: Still Doesn’t Quite Know What It Wants to Be
It took me about half the second season of “Luke Cage” to figure out why I was having such a hard time getting sucked into it. It’s not that the characters are bad, or that it isn’t written well. Individual pieces of season 2 are, in fact, extremely compelling and even thought-provoking. But the whole of it just doesn’t add up.

Officially, season 2 of “Luke Cage” is about, according to the official synopsis: “With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.” I can see that, abstractly. The main thrust of the season involves a three-pronged conflict — Luke Cage himself (Mike Coulter) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick) in one corner, Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) and Shades Alvarez (Theo Rossi) in another, and a Jamaican badass called the Bushmaster in the third.

The Bushmaster has a secret vendetta against Mariah,

‘Cloak & Dagger’ Review: Subdued Marvel Series Less Concerned With Superhero Flair, More Socially Aware

‘Cloak & Dagger’ Review: Subdued Marvel Series Less Concerned With Superhero Flair, More Socially Aware
Spoiler Alert: This review includes details from the premiere episodes of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.

In short, Cloak & Dagger is trippy. It’s not Legion-level trippy, but it’s perplexing astral plane time and space travel — or whatever it is that the two teenage leads do — is enough to make a worthy and woke adaptation featuring the lesser-known Marvel comic book super duo.

With Marvel’s long list of TV shows, Cloak & Dagger stands out in more ways than one as a different kind of superhero show. In fact, showrunner Joe Pokaski makes it feels less like a superhero show and more like a drama-thriller. It doesn’t have the urban grit as Netflix’s quartet of street-level superheroes and it isn’t cut from the same cloth as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — but there is a minor connection within the McU

New Viewing Order For The Entire Marvel Cinematic Universe Might Be The Best One Yet

Between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and TV shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Defenders, it’s often difficult to keep track of the monumental franchise built and molded by Marvel’s brain trust.

It’s one which reached a cataclysmic climax just recently thanks to Avengers: Infinity War, which arrived after 10 years and 18 movies’ worth of exposition and carefully crafted post-credits sequences. Mind you, it’s merely the first chapter in a two-part story, as the untitled Avengers 4 is still scheduled for release in 2019.

But let’s suppose you’re introducing a friend to the Marvel franchise – and we mean the entire franchise, from Jessica Jones to Agent Carter and everything in between – where do you start? Thankfully, the folks at ComicBook.com have done the math, crunched the numbers and lined up all six Infinity Stones to reveal the official chronological viewing order of The Marvel Cinematic Universe.

TV Review: Marvel’s ‘Cloak & Dagger’ on Freeform

  • Variety
At first glance, a TV show about teen superheroes airing on Freeform (the network formerly known as ABC Family) seems like it might be in line with “The Runaways” on Hulu: a glossy take on a beloved comic with some bonus salacious parent drama, as per teen soap standards. “Cloak & Dagger,” however, feels more akin to the Netflix genre of Marvel shows in all its grittiness — but it has an immediate leg up thanks to judicious editing, careful characterization, and downright surreal storytelling.

Pairing writer Joe Pokaski with director Gina Prince-Bythewood (“Love & Basketball”), “Cloak & Dagger” plunges into its own darkness immediately. The origin story of “Cloak,” aka Tyrone (Aubrey Joseph) and “Dagger,” aka Tandy (Olivia Holt) begins when they’re both just kids, and suffer huge tragedies almost simultaneously.

Tyrone sees his older brother — who was trying to get him away from police when caught in

Composers Vying for Emmys Build Musical Atmosphere for TV’s Top Shows
Music for television is now as diverse as it has ever been — from traditional orchestra to electronica, from cool jazz to hip-hop beats. That’s partly the result of the vast increase in production in recent years, but also a matter of showrunners’ wide-ranging musical tastes.

The diversity extends to the composers themselves. Women and people of color, for example, are far more visible in TV’s musical community than in the feature-film world. There are multiple worthy Emmy contenders in the two main composition categories: music for a series and music for a limited series, movie or special. Here we’ve singled out a few of them.

Kurt Farquhar, composer for the CW’s superhero show “Black Lightning,” calls his work “neo-urban scoring: a mix of orchestral score, sound design, contemporary urban/club music, R&B and jazz.” Farquhar has added even more diverse sounds during its first season,

The Darkest Minds Trailer Is Stranger Things Meets X-Men

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for The Darkest Minds. The movie comes a bit out of left field, as this wasn't one of the big movies on everyone's radar this year. However, coming from Shawn Levy and Dan Levine, the producers behind Stranger Things, that's somewhat surprising. What's more surprising? This is basically a young adult version of an X-Men movie, only it's not actually an X-Men movie. It's got a bunch of dangerous kids with powers on the run from the government, they just aren't called mutants.

The trailer is action-packed and very effects-heavy. There are elements of Stranger Things at play here, with the group of young kids having to band together, in addition to the very obvious X-Men elements. There's also a bit of Marvel's The Runaways in here. What's perhaps most surprising of all is that Fox is actually the studio in control of the X-Men franchise,
