An Extended Second Season Of Castlevania Will Be Summoned Onto Netflix This Summer

Proving that not all video game adaptations belong on the trash pile, Netflix and executive producer Adi Shankar defied all odds with their animated Castlevania series.

Those pacing issues ought to be alleviated by the show’s sophomore outing, as Castlevania is returning for an eight-episode season later this year – summer, to be specific, as lead writer Warren Ellis (via Bloody Disgusting) has now taken to Twitter to clear up any confusion regarding Castlevania‘s return.

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer and poster for the upcoming ‘Ocean’s 8’ spinoff film, and it sure looks like a fun ride. Directed by Gary Ross, the film stars Sandra Bullock as Danny Ocean’s (long lost?) sister. In case you were unaware, ‘Ocean’s 8‘ follows Debbie Ocean. As she too is finally released from prison, Debbie sets out to plan an elaborate heist, along with a little help.

Surprisingly, the idea to create a spinoff film came from a brainstorm session that included Steven Soderbergh, George Clooney, and the late, great producer Jerry Weintraub back in 2015. ‘Oceans 8‘ has been in development since October 2015, when Ross (who is good friends with Soderbergh) and Bullock joined the project.

Based on the trailer, is seems that the film might just

Marvel has announced that they are launching a new scripted murder mystery podcast called Wolverine: The Long Night and Wolverine will be played by The Hobbit’s Richard Armitage. The series is being scripted by podcast writer Ben Percy and it's described as a blend of programs such as Serial, S-Town, True Detective, and Unforgiven. Percy explains:

“If you look at the success of Serial and S-Town, it has everything to do I think with their investigative formats, the way the listeners become complicit in the narrative.
