When Black Lightning returns for its fourth and final season on The CW early next year, it'll be with a little less of one of its biggest stars. China Anne McClain, who plays Jefferson Piercer's daughter Jennifer (aka Lightning) on the hit DC Comics series, announced in a video to fans over the weekend that we'll be seeing less of her character as the show heads toward its curtain call.
The majority of Servant's first season is spent in a beautiful Philadelphia townhouse at the heart of what executive producer M. Night Shyamalan calls an "urban nightmare." The opulent but often claustrophobic location is a fortress for the Turner family that is penetrated by several outside threats. A nanny with strong religious-based feelings and a snarling dog are both features of The Omen, but this story is not as clear-cut as the 1970s horror classic.
If you believe in the many-worlds theory, then there's a reality, somewhere in the multiverse, where George Lucas never sold Lucasfilm to Disney and closed out his Star Wars saga with a third and final trilogy. While that's not how things panned out in this dimension, it's always a fun exercise to wonder what might have been. Speaking with author Paul Duncan for The Star Wars Archives. 1999–2005 (a massive, 600-page tome that chronicles the Special Edition re-release and Episodes I - III), Lucas detailed his blueprint for a third Star Wars trilogy set after Return of the Jedi.
Although Thor and Star-Lord had decided that engaging in a knife fight to determine who was in charge of the ship was not necessary in Avengers: Endgame, it was clear that a rivalry between the two beefcake heroes was blossoming. And while we'll have to wait until Thor: Love and Thunder to see how this hilarious passive-aggressive dynamic will develop, the actors playing the heroes are continuing to jokingly puff out their chests at one another while getting ready to film.
Netflix is celebrating Christmas a little early, and in the most bizarre way possible. This morning, the streamer posted a video of Witcher Season 1 footage that was re-edited to incorporate festive elements of the yuletide season. It would be an understatement to say that these little bits of holiday iconography are hilariously jarring in the gritty, fantasy world of the Continent. But hey, the pun work is extraordinary, as Netflix promises a "bloody and brilliant 'slay' ride" for anyone who wishes to watch the series.
So many mysteries lurk in the darkness of space, that humanity might never figure them all out, let alone find them all-but evidence of this one wasn't beamed back to Earth by a telescope.
This week brings the season finale of The Walking Dead spinoff World Beyond, a new Star Trek: Discovery, a new Mandalorian, and a fresh new SYFY series where our favorite smack-talking puppets dig into the movies we all know and love. Oh, and video game network G4 is also making a holiday-themed return!
The first issue of The Other History of the DC Universe, the new DC Black Label series launching this week from writer John Ridley and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli and Andrea Cucchi, makes it very clear that the word "history" is there for a reason. The five-issue series is inspired, in part, by the two-issue History of the DC Universe series from Marv Woflman and George Perez published in 1986, and as a result it's a detailed, expertly crafted walk down DC Comics memory lane.
