Young Justice: Phantoms Looks Like a Crisis on Animated Youths

Young Justice Phantoms Trailer, Episode Premiere DC Fandome 2021

Each season of Young Justice carries a subtitle with a double meaning, and Phantoms is no different. The trailer shows Beast Boy and Artemis (Stephanie Lemelin) at odds with their tragic pasts, and it wouldn’t be surprising if other characters are similarly going through it as well. We’re sure to find out when the season starts…today? Yes! The first two episodes are available right now on HBO Max, with a new episode every Thursday beginning on October 21. That’s a pretty sweet drop, and the season’s sure to be a lot of well-animated (and sometimes convoluted for its own good) fun.

But what about that poster revealed earlier this month, showing multiple earths arranged in a multiverse-like fashion? That’ll surely play out over the rest of the season, but the imagery wouldn’t exist for no reason. Given the show’s tendency to remix old and new comics concepts, it’ll be interesting to see how they potentially handle the larger cosmic mythology that’s been going through it in the comics over the last couple of years.

The Flash Movie Teases Our Entry Into the DC Multiverse

The Flash Movie—Tease, New Details Revealed at DC Fandome 2021

While we’ve long known that the movie was set to bring together two iconic cinematic Batmen together, Miller and the rest of the crew are staying quiet on just what other multiversal shenanigans we can expect, but there have been rumors of visits to the classic Batcave (and Keaton’s old Batmobile), and of course, the arrival of Sasha Calle as Kara Zor-El, Supergirl, before her own adventures in the DC multiverse. A lot of set up is resting on Barry’s shoulders, as is a slick new suit first teased earlier this year.

The Flash, written by Batgirl and Birds of Prey’s Christina Hodson, also stars Ron Livingston as Barry’s father, Henry Allen (replacing Justice League’s Billy Crudup), Zack Snyders Justice League’s Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, and Rudy Mancuso in an undisclosed role. It’s currently set to hit theaters on November 4, 2022.

Multiverse Hopes You Remember the Sci-Fi Concept Is So Hot Right Now

Multiverse Trailer: Multi-Dimensional Sci-Fi Thriller, Marlee Matlin

If you get more Primer vibes than Spider-Man from that trailer, you aren’t wrong. Entangled feels a bit more appropriate as a title, albeit it far less marketable in 2021. Nevertheless, a movie like this seems like a great place to explore what it means for alternate dimensions to cross over, and the very ripe, terrifying notion of meeting a version of yourself. Could you co-exist? Would you want to co-exist? Here, it seems like no love will be lost and lots of people will be murdered.

Multiverse, appropriately, has a multi-prong release. First, it’ll be released in select theaters on November 12. Next, it’ll hit on-demand and digital on November 16. Then, if you can wait a few months, the DVD and Blu-ray releases have already been scheduled for January 11, 2022. Or, if you exist in multiple universes, maybe you can try and watch them all at once. Don’t forget to check out io9’s Fall Movie Preview for more exciting genre titles on the way in 2021.

What If’s Midseason Trailer May Point to Another Massive Marvel Crossover Event

Marvel What If Midseason Teaser Teases Multiverse Crossover

In the new clips, there’s a brief exchange between a young Thor and the variant of Doctor Strange who became corrupted by the dark magics (Doctor Strange Supreme) about the presence of zombies. Though What If has yet to feature a Thor variant who has many lines, the dark Strange seems to be the same one from episode four, and the zombies the pair are discussing are likely from episode five, a fusion of the Marvel Zombies comics, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers Endgame.

Those details alone suggest that, somehow, elements of at least three branches of the multiverse all end up interacting with one another at some point in What If’s story. But the teaser also spotlights shots of other characters like Captain Marvel, Korg, and Iron Man. Iron Man’s appearance in a moment mirroring his snap at the end of Endgame is particularly interesting, as it points to What If coming back to that pivotal point in the MCU’s history. But given the way the show deviates from the canon (and the fact that it’s already sort of touched on beats from that film), it might mean that this snap exists in a different context.

What If’s also already given us an alternate version of Thanos who has little interest in exterminating half of the universe, meaning that he isn’t necessarily the person Iron Man’s using the Infinity Stones against. A world plagued with zombies certainly feels like the sort of thing the Avengers might want to use that for—but if that ends up being the case, it means the series is about to mash up the multiverse in some rather significant ways as it builds to the season one finale.

What If airs Wednesdays on Disney+.

Netflix’s Magic: The Gathering Series Summons Brandon Routh to Be Its Lead

Netflix Magic The Gathering Animates Series Casts Brandon Routh

It’s a good thing, too, given that the Magic: The Gathering animated series was announced and greenlit all the way back in 2019. No other cast members have been revealed, but I’d guess they’ll be announced sooner rather than later. Although to be fair, there’s still plenty of time, as the Netflix show isn’t due until late 2022 at the very earliest.

Update: This post was updated to include the Netflix Geeked tweet thread.
