The King's Man: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)It's been several years since we last saw the "Kingsman" franchise grace the big screen.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, it had been repeatedly delayed. But ...

The 15 Best Superman Comics You Need To Read

Like the utopian Federation of "Star Trek," Superman is an aspirational character. He's a fantasy that began in 1938, when two second-generation Jewish immigrants, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, debuted Superman in the pages of "Action Comics" #1. Audiences quickly latched on to the hero, who despite all of his fantastic powers was still kind, understanding, and heroic. Sure, the myth of Superman is a dream -- but fiction should sometimes dream a little.Despite starring in numerous movies and TV ...

Cobra Kai’s Xolo Maridueña in Talks to Star as HBO Max’s ‘Blue Beetle’

We’ve seen an animated, Afro-Puerto Rican version of Spider-Man in Into the Spider-Verse, and several other supporting Latino characters in DC and Marvel movies.

James Gunn Has Some Suggestions on How to Keep Superhero Movies From Becoming “Really, Really Boring”

Superhero movies are, quite simply, the top dog in the game right now. Dating back to 2012, every year-end box office summary for worldwide grosses has included at least one superhero movie (and oftentimes two or more) in the top ten…including last year’s pandemic-skewed totals! With success, however, comes the temptation to curtail innovation, and that’s exactly what outspoken and opinionated director James Gunn is zeroing in on with his latest comments. While speaking to The Irish Times (p...

Faith leaders push for understanding, solidarity in Asian and Black communities

“Asian Lives Matter.” Those three words — spoken loudly and emphatically by a Black pastor — moved Hyepin Im to tears. “I felt chills going down my spine,” recalled Im, who leads Faith and Community Empowerment, a nonprofit based in Los Angeles’ Koreatown, which works to connect Asian American faith leaders with the community at large. “I was so grateful. I’ve waited a long time to hear this.” Im and the Rev. Mark Whitlock, who spoke those words, have had a professional relationship and a person...

Digital comics startup Madefire is shutting down

R.I.P. Madefire, a startup that recruited high-profile artists to reinvent comics for new formats and platforms.

Gift Guide: TechCrunch’s Favorite Things of 2020

It goes without saying, but 2020 was a bad year for a lot of people. For many, it was a year of stress, of sadness, and anxiety. It was a year of missing friends and family; of just getting to the next day, even as each day seemed to blur into the last. As we’ve done at the end of each of the past few years, we invited our team to look back and highlight some of their “favorite things” — the things that, as we look back from the depths of December, put smiles on our faces, or helped us pass the ...

Nothing Can Save Us From Seven More ‘Kingsman’ Sequels

Someone, somewhere, at some point, thought it was a good idea to make a whole Kingsman franchise, with multiple sequels and prequels. And while the prequel film The King’s Man has yet to open, franchise helmer Matthew Vaughn is already thinking ahead. Way ahead. Vaughn reportedly has plans for “something like seven more Kingsman films.” Which raises one question: Why? Look, I know that the Kingsman movies have their fans, but I remain utterly perplexed by the series. I thought the infamous c...

Watchmen Screenwriter Reveals Plans for an Alternate Ending

Watchmen Screenwriter Reveals Plans for an Alternate Ending Whatever you have to say about Zack Snyder’s filmmaking style, his Watchmen movie is about as faithful an adaptation that fans of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel could have hoped for. The only major deviation from the source material was the omission of the giant squid, which Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias transported to New York in order to bring about global peace. Snyder’s film instead framed Doctor Manhattan for a series of e...

‘Watchmen’ Season 2: Damon Lindelof Still Wants Someone Else to Take Over

Watchmen, last year’s HBO series overseen by Lost and The Leftovers showrunner Damon Lindelof, was a miraculous piece of storytelling that pushed the envelope in terms of what a sequel to a beloved property could be. It also happened to be remarkably prescient in terms of topics like race and police brutality, which are obviously very much at the center of the national conversation several months after the series wrapped up. But Lindelof has said multiple times that he has not yet had an idea f...

Why ‘Watchmen’ Was 9 Episodes Instead of 10, According to Damon Lindelof

When Watchmen was first given a series order by HBO in 2017, it was originally intended as a 10-episode series. But as the series finale for executive producer and writer Damon Lindelof’s comic book series hit the airwaves last weekend, the final Watchmen episode count came up to only 9 episodes. So, what changed? Lindelof revealed that his team had initially set out to write 10 episodes, but during the writing process, they realized that 9 episodes was all they needed to tell their story.
