WTF: New “Sporror” Genre Combines Sports and Horror, Sounds Sporrible

The book is phenomenal, but for many, their introduction to the novel’s demonic antagonist – who often takes the form of a murderous clown named Pennywise (aka Robert Gray) – came in the 1990 […]

James Mangold Talks Alternate ‘Logan’ Opening That Was Axed For Being Too Grim

In the Old Man Logan comic, from which James Mangold‘s Logan borrowed a few ideas, Wolverine killed the X-Men. In a flashback, it’s revealed Mysterio played mind games on Logan and tricked him into killing his family of mutants.
