How a Forgtten ’90s Soda Became a Recurring Gag on ‘Loki’

Just two episodes in, Loki has already drawn us into its perplexing, utterly bizarre world. The Time Variance Authority has a familiar yet troubling feel, a purgatory-like space where time seems to have no meaning.

‘F9’ Review: Cars! In! Spaaaaaace!

For years, John Cena was both the most beloved and the most hated wrestler in the WWE. Kids adored his colorful clothes, his quick wit on the microphone, and his never-give-up attitude. John Cena the wrestler was basically a real-life superhero. Older fans hated him for precisely that same reason; Cena was like a walking cartoon character with gimmick catchphrases and the same handful of moves in match after match. Those fans begged for years for Cena to “turn heel” — to ditch his goody-goody persona and embrace his dark side. No matter how much they booed, though, Cena stuck to his guns and kept on the side of the angels.

Why the Infinity Stones Are Worthless in ‘Loki’

For dozens of hours of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, the Infinity Stones were the ultimate MacGuffin. One alone could defeat alien demigods; all six of them united could alter the shape of the entire universe. Wars were fought for control of these mystical objects. Yet in Loki, our title character finds a Tesseract — and an entire junk drawer full of discarded Infinity Stones — and discovers that they are now as worthless as the third printing of Spider-Man #1.

‘Avatar’ Finally Gets The Immersive, Open World Game It Deserves

After years of development and production, we’re approaching the release of Avatar 2. Assuming it doesn’t get delayed again — maybe not the safest assumption, since it’s been delayed at least a half-dozen times through the years — the film is scheduled to open in theaters in December of 2022. You can expect all kinds of ancillary Avatar merch around then — including the first Avatar video game since the original film came out in 2009.
