Michael Waldron made the leap from writing the upcoming Disney+ series Loki to writing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and working with director Sam Raimi.

He settled into writing both characters by basing them on other famous figures, both real-life and fictional. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Waldron...

J.J. Abrams Seems to Admit New ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy Would Have Benefited From More Planning

If there’s one complaint that fans have about the new Star Wars trilogy across the board, it’s that the story wasn’t completely planned out across all three movies.

That means fans were left with a trilogy that felt a little disjointed, and a recent interview with J.J. Abrams seems to imply that he agrees the new Star Wars trilogy would have benefited from plotting all ...
