Report: Ewan McGregor Will Return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in His Own Disney+ Series

After years of rumors about a potential return—in movie form —it seems like Ewan McGregor will once again don his Jedi robes. But not for the big screen; instead, he’s allegedly coming to Disney’s ever growing streaming service.

Earlier today, Cinelinx reported that McGregor had signed a deal with Lucasfilm to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi—the character he inherited from Alec Guinness...

There Was a Very Sneaky Captain America Easter Egg in Avengers: Endgame We All Missed

There Was a Very Sneaky Captain America Easter Egg in Avengers: Endgame We All Missed

Avengers: Endgame might be Tony Stark’s story but it is, for better or worse at times, in many ways equally a love letter to Chris Evans’ journey as Captain America. So maybe it’s not surprising that one of the film’s most devilishly-difficult-to-spot Easter eggs in a cheeky callback to one of Cap’s cinematic foes.

The Star Trek Movies You Don't Like Are Now Owned by the Same Company That Owns the Trek Movies You Only Mostly Dislike

Allow us to introduce you to the latest inconsequential benefit of our megacorp dystopia. I have to admit it, as far as incredibly minor bright sides to the horrifying rise of media studio megamergers go, “At least CBS owns the Kelvin Timeline Star Trek movies” is not as immediately exciting as “At least the X-Men can appear in the MCU .”

After years of speculation and attempts, Deadline...

Everything You Need to Know About Eisenhorn, the Peculiar Star of the Live-Action Warhammer 40K TV Series

The Very Hollywood Reason You Might Not Know Neil Gaiman Wrote Princess Mononoke's English Dub

The Very Hollywood Reason You Might Not Know Neil Gaiman Wrote Princess Mononoke's English Dub

Princess Mononoke is one of Hayao Miyazaki’s finest, but its epic tale of gods can only be matched in fantasy for the weird story behind its arrival on Western shores in 2000. One notable part of that often forgotten history? Neil Gaiman wrote the English script...although it was pretty hard to find his credit.

There are many notable tales about Mononoke’s journey outside of Japan—and how,...
