Exploring the universes of our...

Jenny Slate in talks to join Tom Hardy in Venom

As Venom is one of the most popular characters to pop out of Spider-Man's universe, it's a little surprising that we've had to wait so long for the character to be properly introduced on the big-screen (and no, I'm not counting Topher Grace 's Venom in SPIDER-MAN 3), but we're now a mere year away from seeing Sony's VENOM unleashed.

Rogue One began life as a concept for the live-action Star Wars TV series

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY originated as an idea from Industrial Light & Magic's chief creative officer John Knoll, who thought that the story of how the Rebels stole the plans to the Death Star would make for an exciting movie.

Orson Krennic almost met a very different fate in Rogue One

*Spoilers for ROGUE ONE below.* Alright, so I think I’m in the majority when I say I think the best scene from ROGUE ONE was where Papa Vader lights up his saber and gives a ton of rebel soldiers a personal colonoscopy. But one of many revelations about the film coming from Gary Whitta reveals Vader was almost limited to merely one kill in the original draft of the...
