Disney's Plan to Acquire Fox Is Back On, Thanks to a New $70 Billion Deal Disney's Plan to Acquire Fox Is Back On, Thanks to a New $70 Billion Deal

A business saga almost worthy of its own summer comic book event might be getting close to its big finale. After a disruption in the form of a rival deal from Comcast, Disney and Fox have announced a renewed deal for the House of Mouse to merge most of Fox’s entertainment subsidiaries into its operations.

X-Men Gold's Big Wedding Surprise Is Going to Be Appropriately Messy and Dramatic X-Men Gold's Big Wedding Surprise Is Going to Be Appropriately Messy and Dramatic

Whenever the X-Men get together for a celebration, it’s only a matter of time before things start exploding and emotions begin to run high. Unsurprisingly, that’s exactly what’s about to happen in this week’s X-Men: Gold—and a big Marvel reveal for tomorrow’s issue was just spoiled in The New York Times.

The Legion Finale Was Beautiful and Disgusting The Legion Finale Was Beautiful and Disgusting

As I was watching Legion’s season finale, my husband peered around the corner just long enough to say: “This is kind of pretentious.” That sums up the second season in a nutshell, a lot of style relishing in its own unearned brilliance. And while the season finale was both stylistically and narratively great, even…

Updates on Wonder Woman 2, Star Trek: Discovery, and More Updates on Wonder Woman 2, Star Trek: Discovery, and More

It: Chapter 2 casts another adult incarnation of the original cast. Kevin Feige is just waiting to hear when Marvel can finally use the X-Men and Fantastic Four again. Ram Bergman says it’s going to be a while before we hear about Rian Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy. Plus, what’s to come on Westworld and Wynonna Earp.…

Is David Finally Going to Become Legion? Is David Finally Going to Become Legion?

This week was supposed to be the Legion season finale, at least until an extra episode was tacked on last month. I’d heard rumors this meant they were ending the series, but given how FX just renewed Legion for a third season (a while after all the other networks made their decisions), clearly that’s not the case. So,…

X-Men: Red Is Telling a Story About Racism for the Internet Age X-Men: Red Is Telling a Story About Racism for the Internet Age

Even though the story of the X-Men began as a metaphor for the Civil Rights Movement and the importance of diversity, the series’ message about what racism looks like has always fallen somewhat short. X-Men: Red is trying to change that.

It Sucks to Be a Woman in Legion It Sucks to Be a Woman in Legion

It’s unclear if the latest episode of Legion is positioning itself as social commentary, a “come to Jesus” moment, or just another hour of prep for that final battle we’ve been waiting for all season. But after almost two seasons of this show, what is clear is that Legion’s female characters are trapped. By love, by…

Hey Kids, Legion Wants to Have a Nice, Long Talk About Cellphones, M'kay? Hey Kids, Legion Wants to Have a Nice, Long Talk About Cellphones, M'kay?

The Greatest Race for Farouk’s corpse has begun, but Legion still has time to turn its chair backwards and have a (Jon) Hamm-fisted lecture about the dangers of the internet. Don’t worry, it matters to the plot. Sort of.

Disney's Plans to Buy Fox Just Hit a Major Snag and Its Name Is Comcast Disney's Plans to Buy Fox Just Hit a Major Snag and Its Name Is Comcast

Marvel Studios’ parent company Disney would very much like to get its hands on all of the sweet, juicy, profitable comic book IP that Fox smartly secured back in the ‘90s, but the House of Mouse’s tentative $52.4 billion offer might no longer be enough to seal the deal.

Deadpool 2 Proves There's No Excuse Not to Include Queer Superheroes on the Screen Deadpool 2 Proves There's No Excuse Not to Include Queer Superheroes on the Screen

Deadpool 2 revels in pointing out many of the overused narrative beats that other comic book movies tend to rely on when the writers decide to phone it in. Interestingly, the film’s shadiest dig is also one of its most progressive messages.

Our 10 Favorite Surprises in Deadpool 2, Ranked Our 10 Favorite Surprises in Deadpool 2, Ranked

Deadpool 2 is so packed with references and jokes about every single genre and property imaginable (and some unimaginable, too), trying to cover them all comprehensively is basically impossible. So we’re going with quality over quantity instead: These are our favorite surprises—the characters, references, one-liners,…

A Guide to Deadpool 2's X-Force, and Their Comic Origins A Guide to Deadpool 2's X-Force, and Their Comic Origins

Deadpool 2 is upon us, in which the Merc with a Mouth has to form a team of his own to fight off Cable—the X-Force. The team has an important history in the comics, and although Deadpool 2's version is a little different, it’s still packed with new faces that have some Marvel Comics history. Here’s what you should…

Legion Tries Being Terrible for an Episode, Succeeds Legion Tries Being Terrible for an Episode, Succeeds

I like to call Legion a “mood piece.” It’s not so much about the story, which is pretty simple when you get down to it, but how it’s telling that story. The show wants to make you feel. It wants to challenge your mood. And it takes a lot of risks to do so. However, the latest episode—which retreaded old plot lines,…

Deadpool 2 Is Better Than the Original—and Funnier, Too Deadpool 2 Is Better Than the Original—and Funnier, Too

Deadpool 2 is a family movie. We know that because, very early on, Deadpool himself says it. Of course, that’s an odd thing for a character known for excessive violence, naughty language, and occasional nudity to announce. But Deadpool, the writers, and the director spend the bulk of the film trying to live up to that…

Legion Tells a Poignant Story of Grief Right When I Needed It Most Legion Tells a Poignant Story of Grief Right When I Needed It Most

How does one of the most powerful psychics in the world mourn? In a sense, like everyone else. Grieving may be a deeply personal process, one I’m going through myself at the moment, but it’s also universal. There’s a reason we’ve established a concrete list of the Stages of Grief—starting with Denial. The instinctual…

Legion Is a Great Reminder of Just How Awful Charles Xavier Was Legion Is a Great Reminder of Just How Awful Charles Xavier Was

Though Professor Charles Xavier is a gifted telepath and an excellent educator, he’s also a rather terrible father and all-around menace to teenaged mutants. That last bit never factored too much into Fox’s live-action X-Men franchise, but it’s something that FX’s Legion is very carefully trying to remind us.

Legion's Most Unreliable Narrator Is Trying to Tell the Horrifying Truth About the Shadow King Legion's Most Unreliable Narrator Is Trying to Tell the Horrifying Truth About the Shadow King

Legion delights in manipulating the way reality is perceived both by its characters and its audience. There are truths and falsehoods woven throughout the series’ interconnected narratives, and the show actively wants it to be difficult to differentiate between the two.

Legion Heads Into Syd's Mind to Teach David a Harsh Lesson Legion Heads Into Syd's Mind to Teach David a Harsh Lesson

Any time a movie or show has a character live the same experience over and over, it’s invariably compared to the movie Groundhog Day. After all, it’s usually about helping an asshole learn the error(s) of their ways. But Legion’s journey into Sydney Barrett’s (Rachel Keller) subconscious isn’t about helping David (Dan…

Black Panther Would Like to Remind You That Storm Is a Literal Goddess Black Panther Would Like to Remind You That Storm Is a Literal Goddess

Ominous, metaphorical storm clouds have been gathering over Black Panther’s Wakanda for some time now as the ancient Orisha have seemingly abandoned T’Challa and his people. But just as the old deities have disappeared, a new(ish) goddess is coming into her powers in Marvel’s comics, and it’s long overdue.

Legion's Showrunner Explains How the Series Wants to Rethink Comic Book Battles

FX’s Legion centers on some of the most powerful mutants from Marvel’s comics, but rather than depicting David Haller and the Shadow King’s psychic might with cheesy, expensive CGI set pieces, series creator Noah Hawley wanted to do something a little more artistically experimental.
