The Latest Mandalorian Had Maybe a Little Too Much Fan Service for Its Own Good

The Latest Mandalorian Had Maybe a Little Too Much Fan Service for Its Own Good

Oh, so you thought Baby Yoda , jet-pack wearing Mandalorians , beskar, and camtonos made The Mandalorian a geeky, self-referential entry into the Star Wars canon? You haven’t seen anything yet.

The latest episode of the show was so packed full of Star Wars winks, nods, and callbacks you’ll either love it or hate it. Personally, I loved it. I geeked out hard. But I’ll also be the first to...

Help, I Can't Get Watchmen's Hauntingly Perfect 'Life on Mars?' Cover Out of My Head

Help, I Can't Get Watchmen's Hauntingly Perfect 'Life on Mars?' Cover Out of My Head

Unlike some people on Watchmen, I’m not even sure a hammer to the head might help at this point.

There were a lot of incredible, audacious goings-on in the latest Watchmen, an episode of television that managed to make me bolt up in surprise multiple times despite being wrapped up toasty warm in several layers of blankets attempting to survive the British winter. But for all its bold...

Does Adam Driver Think There's Still Some Ben Solo in Kylo Ren?

Does Adam Driver Think There's Still Some Ben Solo in Kylo Ren?

Encyclopedias could be filled by dissecting the relationship between Rey and Kylo Ren. And not just their connection, but the fact that Rey doesn’t know her parents and longs for them, while Ren knows his and rejects them. By the time of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker , it seems the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa has all but destroyed the part of him called Ben Solo in favor of Supreme...

Legends of Tomorrow's Batshit Delightful Season 5 Trailer Welcomes You to Mr. Parker's Cul-de-Sac

Not content with merely stepping into the shoes of one heroic icon for the Arrowverse recently, Brandon Routh is trying another for Legends’ next season: the other other Superman, Mr. Rogers .

Routh slipping on a cozy red sweater and singing a silly little jingle in a Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood homage (“Welcome to my cul-de-sac, friend/That’s a street that ends in a circle”) has to settle for...

The Sentimental Reason It Was So Hard to Write The Rise of Skywalker's Ending

The Sentimental Reason It Was So Hard to Write The Rise of Skywalker's Ending

This article will not spoil the ending of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. We don’t know it (and wouldn’t tell you if we did!). Like most of you out there, we want to experience that in the theater. But, obviously, we’re intrigued by the idea of it, and at The Rise of Skywalker press conference in Los Angeles this week, co-writer Chris Terrio discussed the pressure to live up to that idea.

Daisy Ridley Had a Joyous Time Filming The Rise of Skywalker, Despite It Being the End

If The Last Jedi was a dark middle chapter for Star Wars’ new trilogy, The Rise of Skywalker will likely be a brighter culmination of the struggle between the Resistance and the First Order. After all, the good guys have to win and save the day , right? But it’s not just on screen that Rise felt like a happier time in the galaxy, far, far away—according to Daisy Ridley, that celebratory...

Henry Cavill Doesn't Care About the Snyder Cut, He Just Wants Another Superman Movie (and His Mustache Back)

At the approximate half-way point between harassment campaign and esoterically bonkers conspiracy theory, we have “the Snyder cut ”—the alleged complete version of Justice League fans believe Zack Snyder finished before tragic personal circumstances lead to his departure from its production. Somehow, we’re still talking about it, but Henry Cavill wishes we weren’t.
