Geek-O-Rama: Throwing It All Away
Superman And Wonder Woman’s Future Son Revealed
If you’ve ever wondered what the children of Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, or Aquaman would look like, the time for wondering is over. Thanks to DC Comics, every fan gets to see the parentage and superpowers of the sons and daughters of the Justice League. The good news is that they’re every bit the heroes that their parents were, making up the Justice League of the future… the bad news is that they’ve traveled back in time to seek their parents’ help. Because as heroic as their superhero parents taught them to be, the future may be too lost for them to ever save.
The solution, as is usually the case in comic books, is to head back to a time before the world went so wrong. Before Aquaman was corrupted and claimed Cyborg’s body to keep himself alive. Before Mount Olympus was returned to Earth in the middle of New York City. And before the Gods of Olympus saw their powers stolen by the maniacal villain called ‘Sovereign.’ That’s the villain this ‘next generation’ of the Justice League battles in Justice League #26 – and it may be a villain their own parents helped to create.
Writer Bryan Hitch and artists Oclair Albert and Fernando Pasarin will get to that showdown soon enough. But first, let’s get to the good stuff: it’s time to meet the many children of the Justice League. Most notably, the son that would be born from the union of Kal-El of Krypton… and Princess Diana of Themyscira.
Why Karl Urban Almost Didn’t Return For Star Trek Beyond
The U.S.S. Enterprise wouldn't feel complete without having Doctor Leonard "Bones" McCoy as its chief medical officer, so when the original Star Trek series was rebooted for the big screen last decade, Karl Urban was tasked with succeeding DeForrest Kelley as the gruff doctor. Urban has been along for the ride with his other main cast-mates for three movies so far, but that number nearly capped off at two for the Dredd star. Initially, Urban was hesitant to return for Star Trek Beyond because he felt McCoy had been shortchanged when it came to character development. Urban recalled:
"Firstly, I was a little disappointed with the lack of development with McCoy in [Star Trek Into Darkness]. So it was that. Even though I had an amazing experience working with J.J. [Abrams] and the cast, at the end of the day I didn't have much to do. So when they came to me with the offer for [Star Trek Beyond] I was literally in the final stages of negotiating another film."

'Star Wars' actor John Boyega calls 'Last Jedi' an 'epic dark story'
He's not allowed to dish much, but "Star Wars" actor John Boyega did reveal some "Last Jedi" secrets in his latest interview with Variety.
The actor, who plays stormtrooper-turned-Resistance fighter Finn, told the magazine that even though they dispatched with The First Order's Starkiller Base in 2015's "The Force Awakens," things aren't looking good for Poe, General Leia and company.

"The Resistance isn’t in the best condition," he said. "Things are shaky."
Boyega, 25, added that the movie will center around various characters deciding what side they are on. "It’s an epic dark story," he said, according to Variety. "At the same time it’s still fun. It’s still ‘Star Wars.’”
Gillian Anderson Teases 'X-Files' Return With Hair-Raising Photo
The truth is right here: Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) and David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) are now filming "The X-Files" Season 11, and we're already worried about Scully.
"Hearing buzz that Scully won't be in the best of shape when 'The X-Files' picks up. Also, much like the last revival, rumor has it Season 11 will be bookended by heavy (and hopefully less contrived/cheesy) mythology episodes written and directed by series creator Chris Carter."
The mythology episodes are the favorites of some fans, but they were not very well received last year. Instead, fans gravitated more toward eps like "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster."
Here's Why There's a New 'Star Wars' Canon Whitewashing Controversy
The Clone Trooper known as Captain Rex may end up fighting alongside Han Solo on the forest moon of Endor, but he’d have to switch skin colors to do it. Because the actor who played the original Star Wars Clone —Temuera Morrison — is of Māori descent, some fans are concerned that he might retroactively become a white guy in Return of the Jedi. Here’s what’s going on with this dust-up, and why Captain Rex may not be on Endor after all.
Chloe Ayling is a British glamour model based in London. In July 2017, Chloe was kidnapped by a group of human traffickers known as the Black Death, but was released when they found out she was a mother.
On July 11th, Chloe traveled to Milan for a photo shoot. Upon meeting the photographers, she was led to an undisclosed location and was drugged and kidnapped by them. The kidnappers, known as the international human trafficking syndicate Black Death, drove her 120 miles to a farm house in Turin, Italy where they held her for six days. Describing the ordeal, Chloe said in a police statement:
A person wearing black gloves came from behind and put one hand on my neck and one on my mouth to stop me from screaming. A second person wearing a black balaclava gave me an injection in my right forearm. I think I lost consciousness. When I woke up I was wearing a pink bodysuit and the socks I am wearing now. I realized I was in the boot of a car with my wrists and ankles handcuffed, adhesive tape on my mouth. I was inside a bag and was only able to breathe through a small hole.
CELEBRATING STAR WARS #29
Between the events of “The Phantom Menace” and “Attack of the Clones,” Obi-Wan Kenobi mentored Anakin Skywalker for eight years. That’s a lot of time for Anakin to shape his skills and for many adventures to unfold—but as far as official canon is concerned, few stories have been told that explore this time period. Writer Charles Soule and artist Marco Checchetto changed that with STAR WARS: OBI-WAN AND ANAKIN.
Two plots unfold throughout the five issues. The primary story finds Obi-Wan and his Padawan on a remote planet called Carnelion IV, where the duo has responded to a distress signal. The common belief is that society no longer exists on the planet, but it doesn’t take long before the two find themselves in the midst of a civil war between clans known as the Open and the Closed—and neither is particularly friendly.
