THE WALKING DEAD
Marvel TV — which was the studio that had produced all your favorite Marvel shows, including Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Runaways, The Punisher, etc. — is shutting down, and the remaining Marvel shows, including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the upcoming Helmstrom, are going to be produced by Marvel Studios, instead. This helps explain the sudden cancelation of many of those shows. As for the other Marvel series that had been announced for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, What If…?, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk, they are being produced by Marvel Studios and will proceed as planned.
Wait, are we still talking about “the smirk” on Succession? Why? Can’t we live with a little bit of ambiguity?
I don’t watch the CW DC shows so color me just very confused by this headline.
AMC is putting the blame for The Walking Dead‘s stuntman’s death on the stuntman himself in the lawsuit against them. It’s not surprising but still kinda gross.
