Marvel Comics Promises ‘A Fresh Start’ This Year

Marvel Comics is promising “a fresh start” for its characters, beginning in May of this year. A new video teases a great deal of changes for Marvel Comics, including new directions for the characters, new titles, and new creative teams.

Legion Season 2 Promo: Aubrey Plaza Says Season 1 Wasn’t Real

Aubrey Plaza Lenny Legion

Aubrey Plaza is here to talk about your delusions in the latest Legion season 2 promo. FX has been consistently striking gold with their original series over the years, and Noah Hawley’s Legion was yet another win for the network. What’s more, but it proved an X-Men TV show could work and that superhero TV can get truly weird. We’ve yet to see comic book movies or television deviate too far from action or adventure, but season 1 of Legion blended the genre with a psychedelic examination of mental illness.

However, most of the stuff we’ve watched our whole lives either started as comics or were about beings with skills beyond those of normal people. Whether you like capes and masks or not, superhero TV shows aren’t going anywhere.

It’s not surprising, but these series have most of the same problems that other programs face. Such issues include production woes, budget constraints, cast and crew squabbles, and crazy accidents that nobody could have ever predicted. Other than the special effects and superheroes, these shows have a lot of extra baggage …
