Video: When comic book fans think “Venom”, they automatically think “Spider-Man”. That isn’t just because Venom is one of Spider-Man’s most famous villains, it’s also because his comic book origins are tied directly to those of Spider-Man.

Video: The casting of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor was of the utmost secrecy for the BBC, but a few former Time Lords got to learn the identity of the new Doctor a little earlier than the rest of us. Some guessed it accidentally, but others such as Tenth Doctor David Tennant got a very sneaky surprise.
Sony brought the gorgeous-looking Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to Comic-Con with news that Miles, Gwen, and Peter would be joined by even more Spider-heroes—but because the footage was never put online, we never got to see them. Thankfully Hasbro showed up with some upcoming action figures from the movie to make up for it.
Bill Skarsgård became a horror icon thanks to his portrayal of Pennywise in last year’s horror hit It, a role he’ll reprise in the sequel next year.
