We have a very bizarre early look at X-Men: Dark Phoenix’s new comics-inspired uniforms. A wild rumour suggests the Alien franchise could come to television. Plus, more behind-the-scenes on Ant-Man and the Wasp, and both the cast of Arrow and Riverdale discuss prison stints for their respective leads. To me, my spoilers!
