The continued expansion of The CW’s DC universe already stretched Arrow Season 3 a bit thinner by way of The Flash, so it stands to reason that Legends of Tomorrow might require some additional firepower.

The Walking Dead left the Ricktatorship in a whole new world by the end of Season 5, literally and figuratively, but the benefit of Alexandria walls doesn’t seem to be keeping out the danger.

The acclaimed Image comic series Chew, from writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory, is getting its own movie adaptation — well, an animated one, anyway.
