'STRANGER THINGS': NETFLIX TEASES SPINOFF FOCUSING ON FAN-FAVORITE CHARACTER09/27/21 @ 10:37 pm EST
Last week we learned that Loki
series director Kate Herron
was not coming back for season two and that she hadn’t really known there was going to even be a season two. The set off my Spidey-Sense that there was a chance that a second season would be very different from what we’d just seen and that the bulk of the remaining plot threads could be wrapped up elsewhere like in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
. Another clue that this might be the case was the news that Tom Hiddleston
would be playing Loki in the Doctor Strange
Well, if you needed one more reason to think this way, you can now add in the fact that Sylvie actress Sophia Di Martino
admitted on the Vanity Fair
podcast Still Watching
that she learned about season two the same way we did, during the mid-credit scene. The actor is not locked into appearing in the second season but appeared to be intrigued by the idea, stating: "It sounds like a lot of hard work," and that she "wouldn't be closed off to anything." With the way the first season ended and how season two is more of an add-on than part of the plan, you have to wonder if we’ve seen the last of Sylvie or will she also be showing up in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse off Madness

CHECK OUT SOME 'MARVEL'S VOICES: COMUNIDADES' #1 VARIANT COVERS09/27/21 @ 10:43 pm EST
It feels like Season 4 of Stranger Things
is closer than ever, and fans are eager to see how the latest chapter of the genre-bending Netflix series comes together. While the ending of the series is reportedly in sight, some will argue that there's a wealth of story to still be explored, something that has already been the case for various comics and prose books.
During a recent appearance the Code Conference, Netflix executive Ted Sarandos spoke about the success of Stranger Things,
and also hinted at potential "spinoffs" for the flagship show.
"Franchises are good, but what you want are hits," Sarandos explained, before referring to the series as "a franchise being born."
According to Deadline's reporting, there's a chance that a potential spinoff could come to fruition thanks to Millie Bobby Brown, as part of her own existing deal with Netflix. It's unclear at this point if Brown would reprise her role as Jane "Eleven" Hopper in the series, or just serve in a producer role, but the actress has expressed her hopes for where her character's storyline goes.
"I hope she finds who she is, without a boy, a male influence in her life," Brown said of Eleven in Season 4 in an interview with Elle Magazine
. "There's Mike and Papa and Hopper and all the boys really. Even without Max, she needs to find herself by herself. Everyone needs that moment in life to sit there and think, 'Who am I as a person, who am I without everyone around me? How can I really love myself?' I don't know if she knows how to do that yet. So I would like an arc for Eleven to learn how to love herself and learn who she is, which is hard in the circumstances she's in. I think that she needs a little self journey."
Meanwhile, fans have been left guessing exactly how many seasons Stranger Things has left, although those in the cast and crew have indicated that the ending is already figured out. (via ComicBook.com

The Boys DIEGO LUNA: 'STAR WARS: ANDOR' FINISHED SHOOTING; EXPECT "FAMILIAR FACES"09/27/21 @ 10:46 pm EST
spinoff is moving forward at Amazon, THR
The retail giant/streamer has handed out a series order for its college-set spinoff from Eric Kripke’s breakout superhero drama. As part of the pickup, Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters — who previously oversaw ABC Marvel drama Agent Carter —
have boarded the untitled series as showrunners. The longtime writing duo take over for Craig Rosenberg, who departed the drama following creative differences with Amazon and producer Sony Pictures TV.
In the works for more than a year, the untitled series is set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International). It’s described as an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive superheroes as they put their physical, sexual and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. It’s part college show, part Hunger Games
— with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys
Jaz Sinclair (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
), Lizze Broadway (Here and Now
), Shane Paul McGhie (Unbelievable
), Aimee Carrero (Elena of Avalor
), Reina Hardesty (Brockmire
) and Maddie Phillips (Teenage Bounty Hunters
) will play the young superheroes. Additional castings are expected to be announced later.

A smile widens on Diego Luna‘s face when asked about what’s ahead for his Star Wars
character Cassian Andor in the upcoming Disney+ series Star Wars: Andor.
The cheeky grin is a combination of anticipation, excitement and a splash of secrecy regarding the 12-episode project he executive produced and stars in, set to be released in 2022.
“You’ll definitely see familiar faces,” Luna told Deadline
while promoting the return of his Amazon Prime Video original series Pan Y Circo
on October 8. “I can tell you about this project like no other because I can’t spoil the ending if you’ve seen [Stars Wars: Rogue One
] already. No matter what I say, I can’t ruin the ending.”
While Luna shared a laugh about how open he is to discuss Andor’s big-screen demise, he also avoided getting too deep into what lies ahead in the prequel series. Sho0ting is done on the film now and "... we're getting it ready for audiences to see it,” Luna said.
