What We’re Talking About

Loki director Kate Herron has been fanning the already-raging flames of Alligator Loki/Crocoloki/Florida Loki fandom. Our precious swamp baby even got a character poster.

Charismatic beefcake Dwayne Johnson dropped the first set photo from Black Adam showing off the set and costume.

New show Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will excite “old school fans” according to lead Anson Mount. Imagine that…. a show about Captain Pike, Number One, and young Spock will excite “old school fans.”  What a scoop!

What We’re Watching

Scar Jo’s MCU mic-drop, Black Widow, opened this weekend. Aside from the blackly comic David Harbour as Red Guardian and overwrought generic climax, it could have been Bourne.

The MCU has well and truly uncorked the multiverse in its first trailer for animated anthology What If…?, containing a Captain Britain-style Peggy Carter, Marvel Zombies, and more. Come on August 11.
