Avengers: Infinity War Deleted Scenes Breakdown

Venom Movie's Comic Book Influences Explained

It’s safe to say Spider-Man fans have had a fairly mixed reaction to Sony’s upcoming Venom movie so far. On the one hand, it’s great to see Eddie Brock being given another chance on the big screen. On the other, lots of questions remain about a Spider-Man universe character getting a movie… without Spider-Man.
Still, the movie is definitely drawing inspiration from the source material. The film’s director, Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), has said that it’s based mainly on two different comics arcs: Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes.

First Look at Netflix's Shapeshifter Drama The Innocents

Teenagers go through a lot of changes, but Netflix’s new supernatural series The Innocents is taking those growing pains to another level. The show follows two star-crossed high-schoolers, Harry (Percelle Ascott) and June (Sorcha Groundsell), who run away from their overprotective families to start a new life together, only to discover that June has the power to shapeshift. Unfortunately for them, it’s not quite as cool or useful as the X-Men would have us believe – instead, it’s a painful, confusing, and traumatic ordeal, and one of many discoveries that June will make about who she is and where she comes from.
Netflix revealed a first look behind the scenes of the atmospheric new drama series over the weekend, which you can check out below.
