Superman needs Lois Lane. It's built into the fabric of his narrative. He's an all-powerful, godlike creature and he needs something human to keep him tethered to this world and give him a little weakness the rest of us can empathise with.

Video: When the very first trailer for Fox's Logan dropped last year, it was the ad's careful use of Johnny Cash's haunting "Hurt" that suggested the movie would have an emotional weight and depth to it unlike any other X-Men flick.

Dynamite Entertainment has announced a continuation of its official A Song of Ice and Fire graphic novel series with the second book, A Clash of Kings.

It's hard to remember now, but The Last Jedi wasn't the only big trailer we go this week. On Monday we got our first look at the next Thor movie, Ragnarok, and it was also pretty great. It looks big and bold and cosmically weird in ways the past Thor movies haven't managed before. If you thought it looked cool, well then oh boy do I have a recommendation for you: Go pick up The Mighty Thor right now.
