Hoarder of Fantasy Books and Stephen King Wannabecan be described as a heavy-metal pop culture geek, like a weird combination of Supernatural's Sam and Dean Winchester. She enjoys reading horror and fantasy novels when she isn't writing about the different fandoms around the world. Nobelle is currently working on a scary book but is too scared to let you read it just yet
It has already been confirmed that Negan is alive and well both in the Walking Dead comic books and the ongoing TV series on AMC. However, it looks like the villain's future is uncertain. Robert Kirkman has just revealed that there are currently "no plans" to continue with Negan's story in the comics.
Kirkman recently took part in a virtual Q&A with Hey Fandom! where he was asked if people can look forward to another mini-series after Negan Lives #1 or maybe even another The Walking Dead comic series. Not surprisingly, the creator played coy when sharing his ideas.
"It's nice that I have that option open. I can bring Walking Dead back tomorrow if I wanted to, and I'm really happy that I have the freedom to do that," Kirkman said. On the other hand, he also wants to do something else for a change.
"That said, it was something that was a 16-year chunk of my life, and Charlie Adlard's life, and we're very much enjoying our time off right now. I'm really excited to be working on other projects, like Fire Power," Kirkman added. "I can't say for sure that we'll never do another Negan thing, or another Walking Dead universe thing, but there's no plans to right now."
It might be too soon to expect another Walking Dead comic series but we're keeping our fingers crossed on Kirkman getting a brilliant new idea in the future.
Negan Lives #1 is now available. The final episode of The Walking Dead Season 10 will air on AMC later this year.

Playing a superhero might be one of the major goals that any actor would want. After all, it could mean several projects and being a part of a major franchise. However, Jean Smart has revealed that she had other reasons for wanting to play Silk Spectre. The Watchmen star admitted that it was actually Laurie Blake's weaknesses that drew her to the role.
Smart recently spoke to The Los Angeles Times about her character who spends most of the series "pining for somebody who’s been living on another planet for 30 years." Interestingly, this is what attracted Smart to the role in the first place.
"That says a lot about her. Then she finds out that he is living here with another woman. She thinks that she’s kind of got it all together, but she’s really kind of a mess," Smart said. Interestingly, the connection between Laurie and Angela Abar is a lot more obvious than it seems.
"She tells Angela that, you know, you don’t strike me as the kind of person who has friends. I’m thinking just look in the mirror! She’s living alone, in an apartment with an owl and has a closet full of black pantsuits and no social life whatsoever," Smart said. "She’s in love with a man who, like you said, she hasn’t seen in 30 years. And another guy who’s in prison. A shrink would have a field day with her."
We're certainly glad that Smart decided to take on the role and we're hoping to see more of Laurie in the show's second season.
HBO has yet to renew Watchmen for a second season. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

There is little doubt that people think we're finally rid of Thanos after the villain was killed in Avengers: Endgame. However, it looks like we haven't seen the last of the Mad Titan just yet. A new report reveals that Marvel Studios might be looking for ways to bring Thanos back in a future movie. Interestingly, the baddie's return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe might be a lot sooner than we would like to believe.
In Endgame, Thanos was killed not once but twice. Although the character was killed by Thor in the current timeline, another Thanos showed up later in the film as the Avengers went back in time to collect the Infinity Stones. This leads to the Mad Titan joining them in the future and this time, it's Iron Man who gets rid of him. But is it possible that Thanos will be back for Round 3?
The report from MCU Cosmic reveals that a reliable source confirmed that something is brewing at Marvel Studios where execs are “beginning to talk about some way to have Thanos featured in a movie again in the future.” However, they were quick to point out that this isn't final just yet.
“It’s not definitely happening, it’s just something 'in the cards', but the big purple guy still looms large in their minds. There’s no specific storyline or anything like that mentioned, so I have no idea how it’ll work. But with time travel and the multiverse now a thing in the MCU there are infinite possibilities of how we can see Thanos again,” the report reads.
Perhaps the easiest way to reintroduce Thanos is through one of next year's major MCU flicks. The Eternals could feature a younger version of Thanos but it's best to remember that Josh Brolin has not yet been confirmed to reprise the role. With that in mind, it's best to take it with a grain of salt.
Should Marvel bring Thanos back? Sound off in the comments below.

In case you missed it, there will be a separate DC Universe revolving around The Batman. In addition to the upcoming Robert Pattinson film, there has been a spin-off show that will be available on HBO Max that is set to focus on the Gotham City Police Department. However, fans probably shouldn't expect to see the Twilight star showing up in the series. It has been revealed that the Gotham PD show will be a prequel to the movie.
It was previously reported that director Matt Reeves will be teaming up with Terence Winter to develop the new series for HBO Max. The show will be set in the same universe as The Batman and is said to explore the criminal underworld of Gotham City as the police department struggle to maintain the peace.
But will Pattinson make an appearance in the show? An insider tweeted that this probably isn't happening since the series will be a prequel to The Batman.
No idea if Patz will make man appearance but what I have learned is that it be set before when THE BATMAN is set and dive into how Gotham became corrupt and infested with criminals. https://t.co/s1frb1trat— Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) July 11, 2020
"No idea if Patz will make man appearance but what I have learned is that it be set before when THE BATMAN is set and dive into how Gotham became corrupt and infested with criminals," they wrote.
Although it's unlikely that we'll see Bruce Wayne walking around in the show, there's one major character who could play a huge role in the upcoming project. Some believe that Jeffrey Wright, who has been confirmed to play James Gordon in The Batman, could be one of the main characters in the series.
The new show has not yet been given an official release date. In the meantime, The Batman is already scheduled for release on October 1, 2021.

If there's one thing that most Marvel fans have been complaining about when it comes to Disney+, it's the lack of X-Men films being available for streaming. Although Disney has already acquired 20th Century Fox and now owns all of the X-Men movies, these films have yet to be made available on the streaming service. However, things are slowly changing. The first live-action X-Men movie is now available on Disney+.
On Friday, the streaming service has finally released X-Men: Days of Future Past. This is part of Disney+'s Summer Movie Nights series that will add popular films to the service every Friday all throughout this summer. Although the series kicks off with Days of Future Past, you can also expect X-Men: Apocalypse, The Wolverine, and the original X-Men to arrive on Disney+ this summer.
Days of Future Past is certainly an interesting choice to start with when it comes to introducing the X-Men movies into the service. After all, the film introduced the idea of time travel into the X-Men Universe, bringing in the cast of the original films as well as the newer generation and even going as far as showing new mutants from the future. Could this confirm what Marvel is planning for the X-Men? We'll find out soon enough.
X-Men: Days of Future Past starred an ensemble cast made up of Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen, and Patrick Stewart. The movie was originally released on May 23, 2014, and is now available on Disney+.

We already know that Zendaya can sing, dance, and act. But does she have what it takes to take on The Bride? Former Kill Bill star Vivica A. Fox believes that the Spider-Man 3 actress should play the adult version of her character's daughter in a possible sequel to the Quentin Tarantino films.
Kill Bill Vol. 1 featured one of the scenes that teased on what could happen in a possible sequel. The Bride (Uma Thurman) goes after Vernita Green (Fox) in her own home to take revenge for the latter's attempt to assassinate her. Sadly, the Bride kills Vernita in front of her young daughter Nikki. However, she also tells the little girl that she will be waiting for Nikki if the child decides to avenge her mother in the future.
Well, the time may have finally come and Fox already knows who should play the adult Nikki. In an interview with NME, the Independence Day star admitted that she hasn't "got any official word” since she felt that Tarantino is waiting on Ambrosia Kelley, the actress who originally played Nikki, "to grow up a little bit.” Fox then stated that she had been previously asked who should portray Nikki and although her initial response was for Kelley to take on the role, it became clear that they needed "an established actress."
"So I went, 'Zendaya!' How hot would that be? And that would probably green light this project. Because her and Uma are both very tall, and it would just be kick-butt, and I love her,” Fox concluded.
We have to agree with Fox on this one and it would be exciting to see Zendaya take on Thurman. However, it's also important to remember that Kill Bill Vol. 3 has not yet been confirmed. Nevertheless, we're hoping that Tarantino realizes it's time for a sequel and chose Zendaya for the role.
What do you think of Zendaya facing off against Thurman in Kill Bill Vol. 3? Sound off in the comments below.

We already know that The Batman will feature several DC supervillains including Penguin, The Riddler, and Catwoman. But what would happen if Two-Face gets introduced and is played by an Academy Award winner? A new fan art imagines Matthew McConaughey as Harvey Dent in a possible sequel to the Robert Pattinson film and it's absolutely impressive.
The fan art was created by digital artist AwedopeArt and has been shared on Instagram. Check it out below.

"[I] really want to see him play two face in the batman sequel, its gonna be amazing," the caption reads.
Of course, Warner Bros. has not yet teased on a possible follow-up to The Batman since the film itself is still in production. In addition to that, it's unclear if DC is even planning to bring back Two-Face, who is a character that has been played by numerous actors including Tommy Lee Jones and Aaron Eckhart. On the other hand, we love the idea of McConaughey playing Harvey.
But is it possible that Two-Face will actually appear in The Batman? There have been speculations that Peter Sarsgaard's mystery character might be a new version of Harvey. However, it has since been revealed that Sarsgaard will portray a Gotham City district attorney named Gil Colson and will have no connection to Two-Face.
The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves and will also star Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Jayme Lawson, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell. The film is scheduled for release on October 1, 2021.

There is little doubt that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is littered with several references and Easter Eggs that would eventually prove to be important in other films. Such is the case with Rocket Raccoon's angry declaration in Guardians of the Galaxy which would end up being a forecast of what will happen to Star-Lord in Avengers: Endgame.
It's no secret that both Rocket, Star-Lord, and the rest of the Guardians didn't get along right away when they met in the 2014 movie. However, they eventually learned to work together and accept each others' differences. Still, it's important to note that it wasn't easy for them. For instance, one of them made a huge mistake that would cost a lot for the rest of the team.
In Guardians of the Galaxy, Drax decided to single-handedly go up against Ronan the Accuser to avenge the death of his wife and daughter. Unfortunately, this only led to his defeat as well as the capture of Gamora and Star-Lord. To make matters worse, Ronan managed to get his hands on the Power Stone.
Not surprisingly, Rocket was enraged with Drax's selfish moves but as one fan had pointed out on Reddit, it also led to a line that would mirror what happens in Infinity War. "Everybody's got dead people...it's no excuse to get everybody else dead along the way," Rocket roared at Drax. Interestingly, the same thing would eventually happen in the third Avengers film as Peter Quill tried to kill Thanos for sacrificing Gamora just to get the Soul Stone.
Of course, Peter was not there when Rocket said that line but still, those words would become proof that revenge is not the best way to win a battle.

It's no secret that Cara Delevingne looks great in just about anything, even in the scary look she wore in Suicide Squad. However, it looks like David Ayer had different plans for Enchantress in the DC Extended Universe flick. The director has just shared rare concept art from the Warner Bros. movie and it confirms that the DC comic book character was supposed to look ethereal in her final form.
A fan had previously shared the early concept art on Twitter and Ayer was quick to retweet it with an interesting caption. Check it out below.
This is where I wanted to take her look. https://t.co/Hl6vwdzG6E

"This is where I wanted to take her look," Ayer wrote.
It's a huge difference from what ended up in the movie where Enchantress appeared to be dressed in rags before eventually going for a dark green royal look. It may have a lot to do with Ayer choosing to go with a darker, more sinister look for the character but it would have been breathtaking to see her looking more angelic.
Ayer has been quite vocal about wanting to get his own Ayer cut of Suicide Squad just like what Zack Snyder will be doing for Justice League. “My cut would be easy to complete. It would be incredibly cathartic for me. It’s exhausting getting your ass kicked for a film that got the Edward Scissorhands treatment. The film I made has never been seen,” he said.

Most people might be eager to forget that they spent several years following Game of Thrones only to be disappointed with the final season. But for those who want to keep looking back at the fantasy show, you can now do so in high definition. The Game of Thrones Complete Collection box set has just been announced and it will even feature some never-before-seen deleted scenes.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment confirmed the news in a press release, revealing that all seasons of the HBO series will be released in 4K Ultra HD (via Gamespot). Game of Thrones: The Complete Collection will feature all 73 episodes of the show's eight seasons as well as over 15 hours of bonus footage. The 33-disc box set will also be available in Blu-ray.
Are you hoping for something that would prove you are a die-hard Game of Thrones fan? You can go for the Limited Steelbox Edition where all discs will be housed in a special steel box.
Of course, an epic box set like this might make you want to check with the Iron Bank first. The Complete Collection retails for $254.99 while the Steelbox Edition can cost $285.43. However, this might be the price you need to pay to see the Battle of Winterfell in better lighting so it could be worth it for most fans.
The Game of Thrones: The Complete Collection is currently available for pre-order on Best Buy and Amazon. However, the release date has not yet been revealed. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
