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.

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.
