Last year, Lionsgate and the San Diego Comic-Con announced a joint venture to launch a SVOD (subscription video-on-demand) channel themed to all things nerd and con. Now they’ve just announced that a free beta of the service, named Comic-Con HQ, will roll out on May 7th (Free Comic Book Day).

Plans for programing include including original scripted and unscripted programming, such as Kings of Con, a show based on the Her Universe fashion line, and an interview series with Adam Sessler, The ad-free service will also offer programming from Comic-Con’s archives, and that should be an eye opener for comics historians.

These episodes have sparked even more interest and theories about Zoom’s true identity, which will likely remain a mystery until at least the season finale.

I was wondering when someone would object to a network TV show named after Satan, and sure enough One Million Moms took up the challenge: FOX’s new drama “Lucifer” is spiritually dangerous. The new program “Lucifer” glorifies Satan as a caring, likable person in human flesh. The character Lucifer […]

If you were concerned that the next Avengers movie, Avenger: Infinity War, slated for 2018, would contain 150 Marvel characters and sacrifice drama, storytelling and memory storage to too many characters running around, rest easy: there will only be 100 characters in the film. That’s because the Marvel Netflix character can’t really cross over into the movies. This little tiddlebit was revealed by A:IW director Anthony Russo—one half of the Directin’ Russo Brothers—who was being interviewed by a Portuguese outlet, and thought, as many have before him, that just because it was in a foreign language he could be be more candid than normal. Google Translate, Anthony. It’s free.

I had the chance to watch the first two episodes of Jessica Jones, the new Netflix series based on the Marvel characters and I liked it a bit more than Kyle thus far. It’s a grimy, worn down detective tale with added super strength. Krysten Ritter fills the role of the driven, PTSD suffering private […]
