Harington will reportedly be portraying this version of the character although it is unknown how his character will be involved with The Eternals

'GIRL POWER': RINGO-NOMINATED ALL-AGES SERIES RETURNS WITH A NEW JET-SETTING TALE07/14/20 @ 5:18 pm EST
A week after debuting the season two teaser trailer for The Boys
, Amazon Prime Video (via ComicBook
) has come back with some homework: How many middle fingers are in the teaser for the new episodes?
A clear trademark of the series at this point, you can re-watch the trailer below and give it the old college try in tallying the total.
By our count there are three middle fingers, however there is one potential wrinkle. One of the middle fingers gets severed from the man that is extending it, and it flies upward and back towards the camera. Does this count as four total middle fingers? It's technically a different shot and moment from the initial bird-flipping, but comes from a previously seen bird-flipper.The Boys will return for season 2 with new episodes on September 4 with its first three episodes and with five weekly episodes following in the subsequent weeks.
Take a look at it for yourself by clicking here.

'CANTO & THE CLOCKWORK FAIRIES' GETS A SECOND PRINT!07/14/20 @ 5:13 pm EST
Jupiter Jet has dreams of soaring across the solar system as she embarks on an all-new sci-fi adventure! This fall, Action Lab Comics is proud to announce the return of the Ringo Award-nominated series Jupiter Jet with Jupiter Jet and the Forgotten Radio
, a gorgeous full-color 120 page OGN trade paperback written by Jason Inman and Ashley Victoria Robinson (Science!: The Elements of Dark Energy
), with art by Ben Matasuya (Midnight Massacre
) and colors by Elizabeth Kramer, cover by Jonboy Meyers (Teen Titans, Spawn
Seventeen year-old superhero Jupiter Jet has kept Olympic Heights safe for the last year. Her flying skills are unmatched, and the city loves her. But she wants to do more.
Jupiter Jet sets out to liberate humanity from the clutches of The Praetors, the aliens that imprisoned them—not even her little brother’s discovery of a long-forgotten radio can change her mind.
When the mysterious Black Flyer arrives in orbit and threatens her world, Jupiter Jet finds out that her flying techniques may not be up to the task. Being a hero requires more than just a jetpack. Does Jupiter Jet have the courage to save her entire planet?
“I love science fiction. Spaceships, robots, and unknown enemies with laser blasters are great fodder for a writer,” said Jason Inman. “Where Jupiter Jet
Volume 1 was an all-ages homage of the adventure serials of yore, Jupiter Jet and the Forgotten Radio plonks our hero deep in the realm of sci-fi. I can’t wait for comic fans of all-ages to read how this journey will push Jupiter Jet forward and where it will lead her next!”
“The best thing Jupiter Jet brought us was readers of all ages. Families coming together to meet Jacky Johnson and watch her take to the sky, ” said Ashley Victoria Robinson. “I felt tremendous responsibility to evolve Jacky into the young woman these growing families would meet again in Jupiter Jet and the Forgotten Radio
. This new chapter is something I am so proud of, as it echoes so many stories I have loved.”
“I think the one word that sums up Jupiter Jet and the Forgotten Radio
for me is growth,” said Ben Matasuya. “Not only do we see our Jupiter Jet universe expand and reveal new adventures, I think our creative team has grown so much too. Jason, Ashley, Taylor, and I have grown as storytellers in our respective fields and also our Jupiter Jet family has grown with the addition of Liz, our amazing new colorist. The possibilities for this world and this team are endless!”
"As a fan of the series before I was hired as the colorist, Jupiter Jet was a blast to work on!” said Elizabeth Kramer. “Bringing the story and artwork to full color was a joy and a challenge blending new genres and settings while keeping the time-y era look. I can’t wait for people to read it!” Jupiter Jet and the Forgotten Radio
is slated for release in comic shops October 7, 2020 and on bookstore shelves October 20th.

Deadline'HELSTROM': FIRST LOOK REVEALED OF MARVEL SERIES07/14/20 @ 5:03 pm EST
reports that USA Network will not be going forward with Evel,
its high-profile limited series starring This Is Us
‘ Milo Ventimiglia as the larger-than-life ’70s daredevil Evel Knievel.
The limited series was to film during Ventimiglia’s hiatus from This Is Us
. The project was fully cast and staffed; production was about to begin when it was forced to shut down on the last day of prep, March 13, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
With Ventimiglia’s window of availability closing, no definitive path to production restart in the U.S. amid a surge of new COVID-19 infections, which makes synching up everyone’s schedules a daunting proposition, a decision was made not to proceed with the series at USA.

'THE GOONIES': BOSSLOGIC UNVEILS COVER ART FOR 4K RELEASE07/14/20 @ 11:33 am EST
Hula (via IGN
) has released a gallery of the first Helstrom
Created by Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich, Daimon Hellstrom (yes, the comics were a little more on the nose with their spelling) first debuted in the pages of Ghost Rider #1 in 1973 before being spun off into his own series, and later became a member of the Defenders, while Daimon's sister Satana (created by Thomas and artist John Romita Sr.) first appeared in Vampire Tales #2, going on to team up with the Thunderbolts and often crossing paths with Doctor Strange. As her name suggests, Satana is a little more comfortable with her demonic heritage than her brother.
The new series centers around Daimon (Tom Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Sydney Lemmon), the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer, as they track down the worst of humanity - each with their own unique skills (and familial baggage). Helstrom
will reveal more during the show's Comic-Con@Home panel on Friday, July 24 at 3 p.m. PT and is slated to come to Hulu in October.
