    Spoilers Alert! Independence Day, the official holiday of summer. Some people look forward to the fireworks or the barbecues. I, however, was looking forward to the highly anticipated drop with Stranger Things 3. By the time July 5th rolled around, I had finished the entire season, and while it did not disappoint, it didn’t astound

    Everyone has a guilty pleasure. Eating peanut butter from the jar or canceling plans to binge-watch The Real Housewives of Orange County is so much fun. My guilty pleasure is the Kardashians.

    One of the main reasons Marvel fans have wanted a Disney- Fox merger is so that X-Men can join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. How epic would a Wolverine/ Hulk showdown be? Or Shuri teaching classes at Xavier’s Academy for Gifted Youngsters? Or Deadpool and Spider-Man meeting for the first time? Or seeing a big screen

    DC may be finally ready to step out of Marvel’s shadow. DC has been lagging behind Marvel for years, as highlighted by a series of disappointing movies: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League (Wonder Woman was the only exemption from an otherwise sucky DC Universe.) Box office numbers finally began to reflect the low quality of these films, as Justice League

    My favorite thing to do in the entire world is going to the movie theater. I love sitting in the plush leather recliners, popping fluffy kernels into my mouth with some yellow liquid akin to butter and sipping on a Diet Coke as I keep my eyes trained on the big screen. Yet my favorite

    Names have been changed for the sake of protecting identities. One of the best parts about going to college is meeting people from all over the world. During my first semester of college, I bonded with a girl named Kwan who came from Korea. And because of Kwan, I was exposed to the world of

    First, it was Iron Fist. Then Luke Cage. Now, it appears that no Marvel show is safe, as Netflix has just announced it is cancelling Daredevil, arguably the most popular of these shows, after a mere three seasons. Why are these shows being cancelled? Netflix has done a good job with these Marvel characters. All seasons of Luke

    Worth a Thousand Words, a new young adult novel that has left me speechless. Left with a limp after a car accident, Tillie watches the world from behind her camera lens, tracking down misplaced items as her school’s “Lost and Found.” Her next missing case is a little different.

    Since the Dark Phoenix trailer dropped, the film has received backlash for its striking similarities to X Men: The Last Stand. Fans have seen it before: Jean Grey (not the energy-sucking mutant) goes rogue and creates catastrophe all around her. As this was a huge part of Last Stand‘s plot and will definitely be in Dark

    Look up to the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane. No, it’s Henry Cavill! Yesterday, rumors of Henry Cavill hanging up his cape flooded the internet. Cavill has played the legendary Man of Tomorrow in three DC movies so rumors that the actor exited the role came as a shock to fans. Yet, these
