Postal Apocalypse: What Will the Marvel Cinematic Universe Look Like After Avengers 4? Postal Apocalypse: What Will the Marvel Cinematic Universe Look Like After Avengers 4?

So immediately upon re-opening up the mailbag last week, I got sick. Turns out maybe you shouldn’t leave a bag in an irradiated wasteland for a year and then immediately start sticking your hand in there. But no matter! This week: How to protect your budding nerd children, a Star Trek special effects dilemma, and the…

Postal Apocalypse: Will Fan Toxicity Ever Get Better? Postal Apocalypse: Will Fan Toxicity Ever Get Better?

Hello, all! It’s your friendly neighborhood postman, except I’m not that friendly, there are no more neighborhoods since I live in the post-apocalypse, and also I’m a fake postman anyway. It’s been a year since I last answered your letters, so let’s just get to it—it being the futures of Star Wars: Episode IX,…

Fare Thee Well, Space Travelers

Hey, guys—long time no talk. Managing io9 is such a full-time job that it’s been tough to communicate with you all, let alone write things, such as “Postal Apocalypse.” This has bummed me out for a long time. Which is why I’m stepping down as chief of io9.

This DuckTales Preview Is Just a Duck-Blur of Goodness This DuckTales Preview Is Just a Duck-Blur of Goodness

A thing I have said at least three times today to the io9 staff, apropos of nothing: The new DuckTales cartoon is really, really good. Now I have proof, thanks to this preview of the rest of the show’s first season which debuted earlier today at—where else?—Comic-Con.

The Walking Dead's Giant New Trailer Shows Their Hard-Won Peace Is Already Going to Hell The Walking Dead's Giant New Trailer Shows Their Hard-Won Peace Is Already Going to Hell

With Negan and the Saviors defeated, the other three communities at peace and working together, and even a chance to rebuild rather than just survive, life has literally never been better for Rick Grimes, at least since the zombie apocalypse began. How long will it last, though? The show’s season nine trailer has the…

Take a Peek at the Heroes (and Umbrellas) of the Umbrella Academy TV Series Take a Peek at the Heroes (and Umbrellas) of the Umbrella Academy TV Series

It’s been a full year since Netflix announced that it would be adapting My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way and illustrator Gabriel Bá’s Dark Horse comic series. Now it’s finally revealed the cast in all their superhero glory—okay, they reveal a very small portion of all their superhero glory, but we like what we see.

Jurassic Park's Shirtless Jeff Goldblum Is Now a Giant Statue, Let's All Worship It as a God Jurassic Park's Shirtless Jeff Goldblum Is Now a Giant Statue, Let's All Worship It as a God

In times both ancient and modern, people have created statues and icons of religious figures, and genuflected before them to worship the divinities that they represent. Now that the iconic and bare-chested Sexy Jeff Goldblum has been immortalized with a giant statue in London, why not worship it?

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: The Spoiler FAQ Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: The Spoiler FAQ

The blockbuster sequel to the blockbuster Jurassic Park reboot is currently grossing a zillion dollars, but did you notice how everyone in the movie was an imbecile? Their actions may be confusing, but don’t worry—my patented Spoiler FAQ has all the answers to the movie I have retitled Jurassic World: Idiot Buffet.

The Westworld Finale Was a Beautiful, Bonkers Mess The Westworld Finale Was a Beautiful, Bonkers Mess

Crazy twists! Shocking murders! Secret hosts! The ultimate Bernard vs. Dolores showdown! If those are the things you loved about watching Westworld, last night’s season two finale had to be immensely satisfying. If you wanted everything to make sense, well… maybe not so much.

Westworld Approaches Its Endgame With Death, Tragedy, and a Few Major Revelations Westworld Approaches Its Endgame With Death, Tragedy, and a Few Major Revelations

If you watch Westworld for the shocks, last night’s installment couldn’t have disappointed you. And, while it didn’t reach the heights of last week’s phenomenal episode, which told an epic love story that had been lying in the margins of the main narrative, “Vanishing Point” told a story of self-obsession and…

Westworld Is Finally Pulling It Together, in More Ways Than One Westworld Is Finally Pulling It Together, in More Ways Than One

After last week’s fun but not particularly interesting introduction to Shogun World, I was just about ready to announce that Westworld was officially in a sophomore slump. Not that it was bad, mind you; it just hasn’t grabbed me like its first season did. I am happy to report that after “Phase Space” this is no longer…

Westworld's Shōgun World Was Everything I Expected It to Be, But Not Much Else Westworld's Shōgun World Was Everything I Expected It to Be, But Not Much Else

It’s the episode we’ve all been waiting for since the season one finale, but it turns out Shōgun World faces a unique problem that I wasn’t expecting, and it wasn’t the ninjas, tyrannical lords, or even “cop-killer” samurai that fill the park. It’s that compared to Westworld, and all the care that Delos and Dr. Ford…

The 10 Craziest Things That Happened on Gotham This Season The 10 Craziest Things That Happened on Gotham This Season

With its utter refusal to even approach traditional Batman canon, Gotham has always been entertainingly bizarre. But season four was a cavalcade of craziness that would even give the Joker pause—or Jokers, rather. If you don’t watch this delightfully bonkers show, here’s all the madness you missed.

The Secrets of Westworld Are Beginning to Spill Out The Secrets of Westworld Are Beginning to Spill Out

To say that Westworld finally gave (well, confirmed) answers to a few of its biggest mysteries seems almost like a lie. It isn’t, though—we finally learned (at least part of) why Delos funded the park—but the show immediately piled on so many more mysteries it almost doesn’t feel like an answer. But let’s take a good…
