Doctor Who Season 12 Confirms U.N.I.T. And Torchwood Are Defunct

The long-awaited premiere of season 12 of Doctor Who brought with it some new surprises, including the return of a familiar name in an unfamiliar face, and also confirmed that the Doctor largely stands alone against alien threats with the dissolution of both U.N.I.T. and Torchwood.

“Spyfall: Part 1” sees a number of spies being attacked worldwide by unknown entities, forcing C, the head of MI6, to bring in the Doctor to help after the international espionage community agrees it to be the only option. During the meeting, C states the agency has always denied extraterrestrial life existing and left the issues caused by them to be addressed by others, to which the Doctor emphatically states, “they’re all gone.”

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise, since last year’s New Year special “Resolution” established U.N.I.T.’s operations had been suspended some time

Top 150 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2020: #80. The Reckoning – Neil Marshall

The Reckoning

Even though English director Neil Marshall’s first foray into franchise filmmaking with 2019’s Hellboy was a critical and financial disappointment (and broke a nine year hiatus between feature films), the genre auteur will be returning with something to be a bit more excited for with The Reckoning, a return to the genre tropes from his earlier features. The UK film is produced by Daniel-Konrad Cooper and Steffen Wild and stars Charlotte Kirk, Joe Anderson, Steven Waddington and Sean Pertwee. Marshall became an instant genre director of note with his 2005 hit The Descent, followed by his Mad Max homage Doomsday (2008) and his 2010 period drama Centurion (read review).…

Patty Jenkins removes the sword and shield for Diana in Wonder Woman 1984

  • JoBlo
Even the most ardent detractors of Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice were quick to praise the welcome edition of Gal Gadot's Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. The climactic battle between the Holy Trinity and Doomsday saw the mighty Amazonian princess kicking all kinds of mutated Kryptonian butt. When she protects Batman and Superman from Doomsday's power surge and…

Crisis On Infinite Earths Confirms Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman Faced Doomsday

“Crisis on Infinite Earths” Part 3 ended with a shocking twist as the Anti-Monitor defeated the assembly of superheroes and destroyed every Earth in the multiverse.

Now, fans have to wait for almost a month to watch the rest of the story unfold on Arrow and culminate on Legends of Tomorrow. But this year’s crossover event was also packed with hundreds of references, Easter eggs, and even cameos that people are still trying to find, and one of them establishes that Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman has already fought one of his greatest enemies – Doomsday.

Hoechlin won the fans over with his portrayal of the Man of Steel in Supergirl, to the point that The CW has now greenlit a spinoff starring him and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane and while we’ll definitely get to know more about this version of Superman and his escapades before the rise of Kara’s Supergirl,

Zack Snyder Shares Photo of Henry Cavill in Black Superman Suit from the Snyder Cut

The Snyder Cut saga continues, and filmmaker Zack Snyder is adding to the fire once more by teasing yet another element from his version of Justice League that never appeared. In the lead up to the movie, Snyder and Henry Cavill were teasing the appearance of the black Superman suit, an iconic costume from the comics. Indeed, in the source material, after Superman gets killed by Doomsday in The Death of Superman, he gets resurrected and wears a black suit instead of a blue one. Because this particular alien dude has a thing for morbid theatricality. If you’ll recall, …

Watchmen Episode 8 Easter Eggs Explained

Mike Cecchini Dec 9, 2019

The romance of Dr. Manhattan and Angela Abar is explained in Watchmen episode 8, which has keys to understanding both the show and the book.

This article contains major Watchmen episode 8 spoilers.

Welcome back, Dr. Manhattan! You weren’t really gone, anyway. Well, except for the time you were on Europa creating life. And the time you were actually on Mars before you left a decoy there to convince us you were still on Mars while you were quite literally playing God somewhere else. And of course, to your infuriating way of perceiving time, you were never actually gone at all.

In fact, much of Watchmen episode 8, "A God Walks Into Abar" is narrated as incredibly, impossibly compelling exposition by Dr. Manhattan in the course of his conversation with Angela. He does it in a manner that is just perfectly in tune with the way he narrates his

Two Canceled Superman Games Were Reportedly in Development at WB

Rob Leane Nov 13, 2019

It sounds like Warner Bros. has been trying to make a Superman game since 2013, without much luck.

Warner Bros. has been trying to get a Superman game off the ground for the past few years, an insightful Twitter thread seems to have revealed. Of course, Clark Kent/Kal-El has appeared in loads of video games over the years - including the Injustice fighting series, which gave us a dystopian version of the character - but DC's Man of Steel has yet to get a standalone franchise on modern consoles as Batman did with the Arkham series.

It's worth pointing out that this Twitter thread doesn't come to us from a member of Warner Bros staff, so we should take it with a pinch of Super-salt. The thread was posted by journalist James Sigfield, who writes games content for Geeks Worldwide. Sigfield states from the start that

Crisis On Infinite Earths Will Regard Smallville Season 11 Comics As Canon

If you read Superman comics during the days of the New 52, then you may agree with me in saying they didn’t always meet expectations. Action Comics and Superman may have stepped up their game when Rebirth came along, sure, but I often found myself having to get my Big Blue fix during that time period by way of team-up books like Justice League and Superman/Wonder Woman, or the out-of-continuity Smallville Season Eleven.

For those unfamiliar, Smallville Season Eleven did exactly what you’d expect from the title: it continued the story established by the TV show, thereby showing us the Superman that Tom Welling’s iteration of Clark Kent blossomed into. Along the way, he met other heroes The CW didn’t have permission to incorporate, namely Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. It was an incredible series, and I highly recommend that you go out and pick

Smallville Season 8: Best & Worst Episodes, Ranked

After Smallville finished its seventh season during May 2008, the Superman origin story was ready to close one chapter in order to begin a new one. Having followed Clark Kent’s (Tom Welling) young years, the eighth season of The CW drama became an evolution as it began taking the next step to get the Last Son of Krypton closer towards his destiny. With the show’s creator Alfred Gough and Miles Millar stepping down as the showrunners, the torch was passed to long-time writers/producers Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, Kelly Souders, and Brian Peterson.

Krypton Season 2 Finale Review – ‘The Alpha and The Omega’

Ricky Church reviews the season 2 finale of Krypton…

With the recent news that SyFy has cancelled Krypton, what was its second season finale has now become its series finale (unless it finds another home for a third season). After the exciting episode that was ‘Blood Moon’ with Doomsday’s massacre, ‘The Alpha and The Omega’ saw Seg-El and his allies take the fight directly to Zod in a last ditch effort to free Krypton. While it was not as tense as ‘Blood Moon’, the finale still delivered some good action scenes and nice character moments that led to a bittersweet cliffhanger.

The story moved along at a fairly nice pace as the final battle loomed. The slow burn of the opening allowed both the characters and audience to mourn the loss of Kem due to his sacrifice to destroy Doomsday. The gravity of the situation really set in for Seg

Krypton Season 2 Finale Explained

Aaron Sagers Aug 14, 2019

The Krypton Season 2 finale once again has DC Universe sized implications, and leaves us hoping for a Krypton Season 3!

Remember when it seemed bold for Krypton, the show we expected to be a Superman prequel series, introduced the time-traveling Adam Strange, General Zod, as well as Brainiac and Doomsday? Well, hold onto your red trunks because – after the second season went further with Lobo, Brainiac’s homeworld of Colu, Doomsday in action, and the Black Mercy – the Krypton season 2 finale tees up a Krypton Season 3 that should further expands this corner (and alternate timeline) of the DC Universe.

But the finale also opens up a lot of questions that will have fans speculating until Krypton Season 3 premieres (although its renewal still has to be announced). Let’s break down the big ones from tonight’s season finale.

Krypton Season 2 Episode 9 Review – ‘Blood Moon’

Ricky Church reviews the penultimate episode of Krypton season 2…

The penultimate episode of Krypton‘s second season has arrived. ‘Blood Moon’ lived up to its name as Seg, Val and the rest of the Wegthor rebellion found themselves up against the deadly and unstoppable Doomsday. It turned out to be a pretty brutal episode as nothing was held back in Doomsday’s attack with some fairly big consequences for all the characters involved. It certainly set quite an interesting and intense stage for the finale.

Before things got very bleak, ‘Blood Moon’ featured quite a few reunions as Seg met with Val for the first time this season, Nyssa returned to the rebels and the trio of Seg, Kem and Adam were together once again. Even Lyta met unexpectedly with some Sagitarri and seems to have successfully turned them against Zod. These moments were a calm before the storm that

Krypton Season 2 Episode 9 Review: Blood Moon

Krypton attempts its biggest episode ever... and pulls it off, losing one character forever in the process.




Warning: This Krypton review contains spoilers for Season 2, Episode 9.

Krypton Season 2, Episode 9

For the penultimate episode of Season 2 of Krypton, and it’s a big one, it’s Doomsday for the good guys in the action-packed “Blood Moon,” where a moon-sized loss is suffered, and a main character has a brilliant death – leaving the resistance broken, and hopeless.

It is only fitting to begin with the surprising death of Kem. Rasmus Hardiker has been excellent as Kem since Season 1. He is a smart ass from the streets, but there has always been a vulnerability and sadness to the character. This season’s journey has been satisfying as we’ve seen him become a soldier, then a leader, and ultimately a selfless warrior who sacrifices himself for his friend, and the cause.

Krypton Season 2 Episode 7 Review – ‘Zods and Monsters’

Ricky Church reviews the seventh episode of Krypton season 2…

After a fairly quiet episode, Krypton‘s ‘Zods and Monsters’ delivered another somewhat quiet installment of its second season while progressing its story in some significant ways. It was a pretty good balance between scenes focusing on the drama and those on story with more solid performances from the series’ principal cast.

One of the benefits to ‘Zods and Monsters’ was just how shrunken the focus on the characters were. Rather than include all of its ensemble as the last few episodes have done, Krypton‘s latest more strictly followed Seg, Nyssa, Zod, Kem and Strange. The tighter focus really helped put the spotlight where it should be. Cameron Cuffe and Wallis Day really got to show their chemistry since they had so much screentime to themselves. Seg’s monologue to Nyssa regarding how far she has come since the beginning

Krypton Season 2 Episode 7 Review: Zods and Monsters

This week's Krypton manages to cover the origin of Doomsday, the revelation of Jor-El’s parentage, and the return of Brainiac.




This Krypton review contains spoilers.

“Zods and Monsters” unpacks the complicated history of Doomsday, the mythical beast of the Outlands, who was brought to heel by Dru-Zod and his codex Bfg. And while General Zod says he’s still mourning the death of his mother, Lyta, he’s also looking to the stars as a conqueror – with the soon-to-be reconditioned Doomsday as his superweapon.

In typical Zod fashion, he needs Doomsday compliant, but he isn’t precisely concerned with the beast making speeches – which is a shame because Dd has seen quite a lot. Hewing close to his comic book origin as a Kryptonian “evolved” into an unstoppable beast, the flashbacks this week are tragic as we see the Zods and Els subjecting the volunteer Dax Baron to brutal experimentations.

Krypton Season 2 Episode 6 Review – ‘In Zod We Trust’

Ricky Church reviews the sixth episode of Krypton season 2, ‘In Zod We Trust’…

After the surprising cliffhanger last episode where Lyta was executed in front of all of Krypton, ‘In Zod We Trust’ amped up the stakes in some nice ways as the consequences of Lyta’s death was felt for all the characters. It offered some breathing room for Krypton viewers from the tense developments while also setting up the final few episodes’ conflict in the wake of this game-changing development.

One of the strongest aspects to ‘In Zod We Trust’ was the acting from the whole cast. Everyone gave strong performances, but it was Camerin Cuffe, Ian McElhinney, Colin Salmon and Ann Ogbomo who stood out the most as they dealt with the ramifications of Lyta’s execution by Jax-Ur. Cuffe in particular did a nice job as he expressed Seg’s grief and rage over his loss,
