‘Loki’ is Basically Marvel’s Version of ‘Doctor Who’ – And That Rules, Actually

Do you remember how the feverish speculation surrounding the next lead in the legendary science fiction series Doctor Who would always, inevitably land on Tom Hiddleston? Rallying cries of “Tom Hiddleston as the 12th Doctor!” or “Tom Hiddleston should be the 13th Doctor!” frequently circulated the internet, as did fan art that depicted the Avengers star in front of the TARDIS, that blue box in which the Doctor traveled in time and space.

The ‘Loki’ Credits May Have Accidentally Revealed a Pretty Big Spoiler

Major spoilers follow for the second episode of Loki. The second episode of Loki dropped a pretty major bomb on us (literally and figuratively), with the reveal of the fugitive Loki Variant who is wreaking havoc across the Sacred Timeline.

‘Cobra Kai’ Was Heavily Inspired by the Gruesome HBO Prison Series ‘Oz’

What’s the connection between Ralph Macchio, karate kicks, Ernie Hudson, and prison riots? You’d be surprised. One of the creators of Netflix’s Cobra Kai tweeted Tuesday that “there is no Cobra Kai without Oz.” Yes, the gruesome HBO drama about frequently violent prisoners.

Bernthal will play a guy recently released from prison who hopes to get his life back on track. And, if we’re to take the title literally, he’ll become a gigolo at some point.

‘American Horror Stories’ Trailer Teases the Creepy, Bite-Sized Version of ‘American Horror Story’

That ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Prequel Series Starring Gaston and LeFou is Actually Happening

The live-action Beauty and the Beast is officially getting a prequel series focused on Gaston and LeFou, and I have only one question: who wants this? Look, the Beauty and the Beast remake was a hit, but is there anyone out there craving an entire prequel TV series about these particular characters? I would say no, but I guess I’m wrong since Disney is about to sink some cash into this idea. Beauty and the Beast actors Luke Evans and Josh Gad are both onboard to reprise their roles, and Briana ...

‘Clarice’ to End After One Season on CBS, Maybe the Lambs Will Stop Screaming

The lambs may finally stop screaming. Clarice will reportedly end after just one season on CBS, after talks stalled on the Silence of the Lambs prequel’s planned move from CBS to Paramount+. Now, it seems that move has been nixed, and Clarice is doomed to be thrown at the bottom of a hole alongside so many other one-season shows. Deadline reports that Clarice will end after one season, after negotiations between Paramount+ and co-producer MGM, which would have moved the series to the streame...

Marvel Studios TV Shows Are Produced More Like Feature Films, But Could That Soon Change?

Since the new Marvel Studios TV shows being produced for Disney+ are so closely tied to the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it only makes sense that the shows are being crafted as if they were feature films. At least that’s how they’re being treated behind the scenes with a process that removes one key element of television production. Whenever a TV show is made, there’s typically a role called a showrunner. This position acts much in the same way that a director and producer would on ...

Now Loki has come along and made things even more complicated by expanding on those rules. Loki head writer Michael Waldron recently discussed how he and the show’s writing staff built on those rules and had to define a whole new set of them by...

Marvel’s new series Loki expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a complicated way by introducing the Time Variance Authority, an agency tasked with preserving the flow of time in what is known as “The Sacred Timeline.” Since the TVA is trying to prevent the creation of multiverses and a potential war between them, what place does this agency have in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness?  Loki head writer Michael Waldron wasn’t w...
