The Punisher's Logo Can't Be Turned Into a Symbol for Black Lives Matter or Real World Justice

The Punisher's Logo Can't Be Turned Into a Symbol for Black Lives Matter or Real World Justice

For years now,

American police officers  and members of various branches of the American military have used Marvel Comics’ Punisher skull logo as a symbol to represent their own personal ideologies about what it means to be a person wielding a weapon. Those ideologies, interpreted through the lens of the logo, are simple: it is our right to murder with impunity.

In the midst of last week’s...

Star Wars' Not-So-Brief History of Fleeting LGBTQ+ Representation

Star Wars' Not-So-Brief History of Fleeting LGBTQ+ Representation

The long road to meaningful representation of LGBTQ+ creatives and characters in our popular media is a history interwoven throughout decades of media narratives. For Star Wars, one of the biggest pieces of popular culture in living memory, that story has come in

fits and starts —and in many ways, it’s still a story that is only just beginning.

The bulk of Star Wars’ attempts to create and...

Artemis Fowl Is a Flashy Fairytale About a Magically Militarized Police Force

Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl, a novel about a criminal boy genius with designs on carrying out the most impressive heist in either human or fairy history . This week, Disney finally releases its...

Ridley Scott Wants to Use a New Movie to Answer an Obvious Question Raised by Alien

Ridley Scott Wants to Use a New Movie to Answer an Obvious Question Raised by Alien

Ridley Scott seems like there’s somewhere in his brain that is always thinking about

Alien . He’s never quite been able to leave the franchise behind, and after returning with Prometheus and Alien: Covenant , it does feel like he’s camped out to stay. And while Covenant didn’t do well enough to demand an immediate followup, and the Disney-Fox merger complicated plans for a new movie, rest...

Ahsoka Tano's Star Wars Story (So Far)

First, there

was Star Wars: The Clone Wars . Then there was Star Wars Rebels . Then, miraculously , there was Clone Wars again. The story of Ahsoka Tano has been closed and reopened many times over her growth into one of Star Wars’ most beloved heroes. Her story is one that’s far from over, whether that’s in the upcoming season of The Mandalorian or beyond. But what do we know about the gaps...

Dave Filoni's Thoughts on The Phantom Menace Are Must-See Star Wars TV

Get ready to never think about

The Phantom Menace the same way ever again.

Disney+ recently launched

a new show called Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian that goes behind the scenes of the first-ever live-action Star Wars TV show. However, it’s not a traditional making-of show. Each episode focuses on larger themes, and episode two, which debuted Friday, is about the “Legacy” of Star...

The Clone War Is Over, But Clone Wars Isn't

The Clone War Is Over, But Clone Wars Isn't

Long have we waited for this moment. Now that it’s upon us, in its final hour Star Wars: The Clone Wars has laid to bare its thesis: In a galaxy far, far away, where now nothing can be as it was for the show’s seven seasons, only one thing remains that matters. One thing that was, really, all that ever mattered.

A dread air lingers over “Shattered,” and it’s an understandable air to linger....

Open Channel: Are You Rushing to Get Back to Movie Theaters Right Now?

The U.S. is

still living through a pandemic that we have no viable means of currently combatting, other than keeping our distances from one another by largely staying homebound and avoiding places where large groups of people congregate, like movie theaters .

Watch the Original Darth Maul Help Bring Clone Wars' Most Incredible Lightsaber Duel to Life

Ahsoka and Darth Maul’s duel for the planet Mandalore on last week’s jaw-dropping Clone Wars wasn’t just perhaps the best ever lightsaber duel on the entire show: it might just be the best ever lightsaber duel in Star Wars, full stop.

Everybody and Their Mom Watched Trolls World Tour, Apparently

The Russos Wouldn't Mind if Endgame Made Even More Money When This All Blows Over

Well. They want to welcome fans back to theaters. But really, what’s

padding a little number one record while you’re at it?

It feels like much, much longer—and did so even before we entered the collective period of time-displacement that is the novel coronavirus lockdown—but we just passed the one-year anniversary of

Avengers: Endgame’s release .

They can’t keep getting away with this. At least they’re

There are just two episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars left, and with its dramatic finale set to air earlier-than-planned on Disney+

next Monday on May 4 (yes, yes, you know why ), this could be the last little tidbit of a teaser we ever get for the show. That Incredible Clone Wars Fight...
