Get ready to add another darkly atmospheric, genre-blending international Netflix Original to your queue. The streaming service just released the first trailer for Curon, an Italian series that appears to be heading down the same heavily forested path as Dark, Marianne, and The Rain.
It’s the fever dream of gamers the world over: Kingdom Hearts, the game and manga series that gleefully wrecks through every fictional boundary, may come to television. According to IGN, several entertainment journalists have tweeted out tips about a series based on Square Enix’s hit video game that’s reportedly in the works at Disney+.
We might soon be seeing a lot more Superman in more ways than one. On Wednesday, Deadline reported that Henry Cavill is in talks to don the cape at least one more time for an unspecified DC Extended Universe project. The outlet’s unnamed sources say he won’t be coming back in a standalone film, but otherwise, all bets are off.
According to the publication, possible candidates for Superman cameos are Shazam 2, Black Adam, and Aquaman 2, while Wonder Woman 1984 and Suicide Squad have wrapped production too soon for this, and an appearance in Matt Reeves’ The Batman “isn’t expected.” Meanwhile, there’s no Man of Steel sequel in the works. But could Cavill’s rumored return be connected to the recently announced “Snyder Cut” that will arrive on HBO Max next year?
As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, Tor Teen YA authors hosted a conversation on mental health representation in YA fiction. Titled “Empathy Over Stigma,” the panel featured YA authors TJ Klune (The Extraordinaries), Mark Oshiro (Each of Us a Desert), and Lauren Shippen (A Neon Darkness).
The trio sat down over Crowdcast to discuss the responsibility of writing about a frequently misrepresented topic, how they react to readers who don’t feel portrayed, changing people’s perceptions of therapy, tips for bad mental health days, first-person experiences vs. research, sensitivity readers, book recommendations, and much more. Watch the video above, and follow along below the jump for time-stamped questions.

We love the fantasy genre for so many reasons, but we feel like one of those reasons often gets overlooked. We’re just so caught up in our magic systems, and our fancy weaponry, and our world-ending peril that we forget to focus on the little things. So it’s time to appreciate a truly underrated aspect of the genre: beautifully toned biceps.
Show us your muscle, fantasy heroes.
If you were sad that Tyrion and Khal Drogo never got to interact but also thought they would have absolutely destroyed their respective What We Do in the Shadows cameos, then oh, do we have the pitch for you. Deadline reports that Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa’s new film is an action-horror buddy road movie about a vampire (Momoa) and a vampire slayer (Dinklage) who team up to run cons.
Tade Thompson’s The Murders of Molly Southbourne, S.A. Chakraborty’s The Daevabad Trilogy, and Jonathan Stroud’s Lockwood & Co.books are coming to TV!
