What could the Marvel Cinematic Universe look like after Avengers: Endgame?

On the TV side, Marvel is using the chance to explore the traumas of characters like Wanda Maximoff or Bucky Barnes, and on the film side, with the upcoming Black Widow, the studio is...

‘Orphan’ Prequel ‘Orphan: First Kill’ is Shocking and Not What You’d Expect, According to Star Isabelle Fuhrman

Orphan, the trashy, wonderful horror movie about a murderous 30-something woman posing as a 9-year-old child, has a prequel on the way called Orphan: First Kill.

It’s not entirely clear just yet how the film is going to sell this idea, but according to Furhman, the end results are going to shock audiences. Released in 2009, Orphan was helme...

What’s Up With Josta Soda, the Bizarre Drink of Choice for the TVA in ‘Loki’?

One of those small touches is Mobius’ (Owen Wilson) favorite drink: Josta soda. Josta was a real product from the ‘90s, and it had a tumultuous, short-lived life in our reality....
