Writer Simon Spurrier and artist Sergio Dávila team up this March for BLACK KNIGHT: CURSE OF THE EBONY BLADE.
Following January’s KING IN BLACK: BLACK KNIGHT, acclaimed writer Simon Spurrier (X-Men Legacy, X-Force) will continue to pen the legend of the Black Knight in a brand-new series. Launching in March, BLACK KNIGHT: CURSE OF THE EBONY BLADE will further expand the fascinating mythology behind the cursed hero and introduce his adventures to a new generation of fans.
Holding up the legacy of the Black Night is Dane Whitman who knows all too well that welding the magical Ebony Blade comes at a terrible price: an insatiable lust for blood and mayhem that constantly threatens to swallow its owner in darkness. Will that be Dane’s fate? Following his epic battle against the KING IN BLACK, a reinvigorated Dane has a greater sense of purpose than ever before. But his sword is the key to a new enemy’s evil plan and only the Black Knight can prevent the coming death and destruction. This conflict spanning mythical Camelot to modern-day NYC will test Dane like never before and challenge everything he believes about himself, the Ebony Blade, and the entire history of the Black Knight. Don’t miss history in the making as this fan-favorite Avenger takes his rightful place as a major player in the Marvel Universe.
Here’s what Simon Spurrier had to say about the Black Knight’s next chapter:
“Having enjoyed myself a positively indecent amount while writing King in Black: The Black Knight, I found that I was even more fascinated by the central character – Dane Whitman – than I’d realised. The surprising new take on him which we present in the one-shot opened so many new doors. Dane and his tangled lore are a treasure trove for anyone fascinated by story, mythology, folklore and psychology — all of which are very much My Bag — not to mention the simple thrill of seeing a not-totally-well-adjusted man flying around on a winged warhorse with one of the world’s most devastating magical weapons in his hand.

Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Salvador Larroca come together to launch ALIEN #1
Earlier this year, Marvel Comics announced that all-new comics set in the iconic—and terrifying—world of the Alien franchise would be launching in 2021. Today, Marvel is excited to announce that the first of these ventures into never-before-seen corners of the Alien universe will arrive this March with ALIEN #1.
Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Empyre: Captain America) with art by Salvador Larroca (Doctor Doom), ALIEN #1 will be a thrilling addition to the incredible legacy that began with the groundbreaking 1979 film. Featuring both new and classic characters from Earth and beyond, this bold take on the Alien mythology will entertain both longtime fans and newcomers to the legendary horror/science-fiction saga.
The new story will feature a Weyland-Yutani mercenary named Gabriel Cruz as he battles a deadly new breed of xenomorph with the survival of his child hanging in the balance. No stranger to infusing horror with the classic Marvel storytelling, Phillip Kennedy Johnson most recently shocked readers in the terrifying MARVEL ZOMBIES: RESURRECTION series.
“Just as a reader and fan, I was as excited as anyone when I heard the franchise was coming to Marvel, and when they asked me to WRITE THE LAUNCH, I was floored. I’ve been training my whole life for this gig without knowing it,” Johnson said. “Ever since seeing Ridley Scott’s ALIEN at way too young an age, I’ve been OBSESSED with the xenomorph, the single most iconic representation of terror on film.” Continue reading →
An Urgent Look at the Earliest Days of the COVID-19 Outbreak in Wuhan, China Launches in Virtual Cinemas Nationwide Beginning Friday, December 4
MTV Documentary Films has announced the release of 76 DAYS, a raw and emotional look at the struggles of the people of Wuhan, China, in the earliest days of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The documentary is directed by New York filmmaker Hao Wu (People’s Republic of Desire) and two China-based journalists, Weixi Chen and “Anonymous,” who took enormous personal risks to film at four different hospitals, 76 DAYS world-premiered at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival where it topped IndieWire’s Critics Poll as Best Documentary of the festival.
76 DAYS was directed by Hao Wu, Weixi Chen and Anonymous. It was produced by Hao Wu and Jean Tsien. The film was written and edited by Hao Wu and shot by Anonymous and Weixi Chen. Executive producers are Sheila Nevins, Bryn Mooser, Geralyn White Dreyfous, Naja Pham Lockwood, Jamie Chen, and Roberto Grande.
It is set to be released in over 50 virtual cinemas nationwide (including Film Forum in NY and Laemmle Theaters in LA) beginning Friday, December 4.
On January 23rd, 2020, China locked down Wuhan, a city of 11 million, to combat the emerging COVID-19 outbreak. Set deep inside the frontlines of the crisis, 76 DAYS tells indelible human stories at the center of this pandemic—from a woman begging in vain to bid a final farewell to her father, a grandfather with dementia searching for his way home, a couple anxious to meet their newborn, to a nurse determined to return personal items to families of the deceased. These intimate stories bear witness to the death and rebirth of a city under a 76-day lockdown, and to the compassion and human resilience that persists in times of profound tragedy.
David Prowse, best known for playing the original Darth Vader in the Star Wars movies, has passed away on Sunday, his management company announced. He was 85.
Prowse suffered from Alzheimer’s. According to his daughter, he had been in the hospital for two weeks. He passed away due to coronavirus complications.
“It’s with great regret and heart-wrenching sadness for us and million of fans around the world, to announce that our client DAVE PROWSE M.B.E. has passed away at the age of 85,” Bowington Management said on Twitter Sunday.
“David brought a physicality to Darth Vader that was essential for the character,” Star Wars creator George Lucas said in a statement posted on StarWars.com. “He made Vader leap off the page and on to the big screen, with an imposing stature and movement performance to match the intensity and undercurrent of Vader’s presence. David was up for anything and contributed to the success of what would become a memorable, tragic figure. May he rest in peace.”
As Darth Vader in Star Wars, Prowse wore the iconic black suit and helmet, while actor James Earl Jones provided the voice.
Prowse also appeared in Stanley Kubrick’s classic dystopian crime film A Clockwork Orange (1971), and as Frankentstein’s monster in Casino Royale (1967) which marked his debut, and the Hammer horrors The Horror of Frankenstein (1970) and Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974).
A bodybuilder and weightlifting champion, Prowse had a hand in helping Christopher Reeves achieve his physique for the 1978 superhero film by Richard Donner “Superman”, having trained Reeves for six weeks. “He was fantastic. He was a very lovely person,” Prowse said of Reeve. “We were like brothers, we got along so well together. And during the course of the period I had him, I took him from 170 pounds when we started and he was 212 [pounds] when he went into the suit.”
The Eternals begin a new age under writer Kieron Gillen and artist Esad Ribić this January

Readers will experience Jack Kirby’s classic creation in an epic saga that will enthrall both longtime fans of the Eternals and those experiencing these enigmatic heroes for the first time.

Check out a brand-new trailer for the debut issue featuring never-before-seen artwork and covers.
“The joy of Eternals for me is it’s just so much, but it’s also such a clean, accessible book in terms of, “These are people who we’re going to hang around with, they’re fun to be with, and oh my god! They’re in trouble,”’ Gillen told Comic Book Resources. “It does everything I love a Marvel book doing in terms of action, romance, and philosophy of ideas, but it’s also absolutely me coming back to Marvel with the kinds of skills I’ve honed over in indie books like Die, The Wicked & the Divine and Once and Future; that way of thinking about how to make a universe really pop.” Learn what it truly means to be ETERNAL when the highly-anticipated debut issue hits stands on January 6th.
Like plenty of other leading men, Chis Hemsworth likes to post his workouts on social media, and has even got a side hustle going with his own fitness and wellbeing app, Centr, where he and his team share the workouts and meal plans that have helped him get into godlike shape to play Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But in his latest progress pic on Instagram, in which he is captured flipping a tire (or “cheat day donut” as his tongue-in-cheek caption reads), the Australian actor is looking even more jacked than he did on the set of the Thor and Avengers movies. It’s in preparation for his next big project, where he will play ’80s and ’90s wrestling star Hulk Hogan.
Hemsworth has previously stated in interviews that his role in the upcoming Hogan biopic will require him to bulk up and physically transform more than any of his previous gigs. “I will have to put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor,” he said. “There is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude… I will also have to do a deep dive into the rabbit hole of the wrestling world, which I’m really looking forward to doing.”
After the operating system takes up the space it needs, you’ll have far less than the rated 825GB SSD suggests.
The PlayStation 5 launches in just over a week on November 12, but Sony still hasn’t concretely stated just how much of the SSD will be available for you to install games on. We have confirmed that it’s going to be just over 650GB.
The PS5 ships with a custom 825GB SSD, but not all of that will be free for game installations. The console’s operating system needs some of that space from the get-go. We’ve tested it ourselves, and there is roughly 667GB free to install games.
In case you needed any more confirmation – the #PS5 review kits have 667 GB of storage.
That’s less than the Xbox Series X, but that was always likely to be the case considering the PS5’s smaller SSD overall. The Xbox Series X ships with a 1TB SSD, with its operating system reducing available storage down to 802GB. Continue reading →
