Eternals Movie In Development At Marvel

Eternals Movie In Development At Marvel

The Eternals are a race of ancient human beings created a million years ago by the Celestials.

Source: The Wrap

With Avengers: Infinity War set to release Friday, Marvel Studios is charging ahead into Phase Four and the sky is not the limit as Kevin Feige revealed that an Eternals movie is in the works.

"Eternals is one of many many many things that we are actively beginning to have creative discussions about to see if we believe in them enough to put them on a slate. We have started working on what are the films post-phase 3."

Before Marvel gets to that point though, they've still got to finish Phase Three, which includes Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel, and the untitled Avengers film.

"And we start shooting 'Spider Man' in July. Those are the five things that are taking up 90 percent of our time. But there's 10 percent we're starting to go, 'What's going to be best?' And some of that is you can take cues from everything we've done in the 22 movies before those — which is sequels to existing characters, new interpretation of existing characters and trying whole new swings with stuff that most people never heard of. So there are writers coming in on lots of different projects and lots of different ideas. And you'll only start to hear more and more of it."

The Eternals are an offshoot of the evolutionary process that created sentient life on Earth. Created by the Celestials, the Eternals were supposed to be the defenders of Earth, which lead to the war against their destructive counterparts, the Deviants.

James Cameron Is Over Superhero Movies

James Cameron Is Over Superhero Movies

Cameron also compared Avatar to The Godfather.

Source: Vanity Fair

While promoting his new documentary series AMC Visionaries: James Cameron's Story of Science FictionJames Cameron is hoping that the world will finally get over its love affair with superhero movies. Hopefully in time to go see Avatar 2.

"I'm hoping we'll start getting Avenger fatigue here pretty soon. Not that I don't love the movies. It's just, come on, guys, there are other stories to tell besides hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It's like, oy!"

It seems that Cameron is more lenient with space-based superhero movies (surprise, surprise) as he name dropped Guardians of the Galaxy as a film he thinks is fun.

"We can see the market drives us to a sort of science fiction now that's either completely escapist and doesn't require a technical consultant—an example of that would be Guardians of the Galaxy. It's just fun. We don't care how those spaceships work or any of that stuff works. And then you have scientifically responsible science fiction like The Martian or Interstellar."

Moving onto irresponsible things, Cameron then went on to compare Avatar (which is just Dances with Wolves in space) to Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather.

"I've found myself as a father of five starting to think about what would an Avatar story be like if it was a family drama. What if it was The Godfather? It's a generational family saga. That's very different than the first film. There's still the same setting and the same respect for the shock of the new. We still want to show you things that you haven't even seen or imagined, but the story is very different. It's a continuation of the same characters . . . but what happens when warriors who are willing to go on suicide charges and leap off cliffs, what happens when they grow up and have their own kids? It becomes a very different story."

Meanwhile, Avatar 2 is set to release December 18, 2020, Avatar 3 is set to release December 17, 2021, Avatar 4 is set to release December 20, 2024, and Avatar 5 is set to release December 19, 2025.

Eternals Movie Confirmed by Kevin Feige

We reported recently that the buzz was, Eternals was going to get a movie. Official confirmation came out today from Marvel. 

 

The Eternals, first appears in Eternals #1, has been confirmed from Marvel.

From The Wrap had the story:

Marvel Studios is developing a movie based on the “Eternals” comic book series about an evolutionary offshoot of humanity, president Kevin Feige told TheWrap.

“‘Eternals’ is one of many many many things that we are actively beginning to have creative discussions about to see if we believe in them enough to put them on a slate,” Feige said Sunday while promoting this week’s “Avengers: Infinity War.”

“We have started working on what are the films post-phase 3,” he said, referencing the forthcoming fourth part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s slate of movies after the wind-down of franchises based on the original Avengers.

But Feige still has a whole lot of work to do on the current MCU phase, telling TheWrap that most of the studio’s current efforts are going into “Infinity War,” finishing “Ant Man and The Wasp” and “Captain Marvel,” as well as editing an untitled Avengers film.

‘Black’ Comic Movie Adaptation Lands Writer

We reported back in August that Black from Black Mask Comics had been optioned for a movie by Studio 8. Today, news came out that a writer has been named for the adaptation.

Black, and associated characters, first appears in Black #1 (we are fond of the Comicsheatingup.net variant, with cover design by yours truly) and is a what if only black people had super powers.

From Deadline.com:

Seith Mann has been hired by Studio 8 to adapt the comic series BLACK which explores the idea if what only black people had superpowers? The company plans to franchise the IP and also develop the follow up comic BLACK [AF]: America’s Sweetheart which has a female lead.

The series comes from co-creator/writer Kwanza Osajyefo, co-creator/designer Tim Smith 3, artist Jamal Igle and cover artist Khary Randolph. Mann, who co-created The Breaks and directed the pilot for VH-1, has also directed episodes of The Wire, Homeland, Friday Night Lights and The Walking Dead.

BLACK looks at an increasingly polarized world where — after inexplicably surviving being gunned down by police due to racial profiling — young Kareem Jenkins joins a secret underground group of black super heroes and must choose between personal revenge or collective action to achieve real and lasting change.

Nova Could Come to Marvel Cinematic Universe

It has been a big night for Marvel Comic related movies. The trailer for Venom was leaked. Then the Official Trailer came out. News circulated that a Moon Knight movie could end up being done. And rumors that Nova could come to the big screen as part of an ensemble movie before getting his own solo film. 

Richard Rider, AKA Nova, first appears in Nova #1. Bronze age Marvel books have been heating up lately, first appearance and keys especially, this could drive Nova #1 up more.

Comicbook.com had the story:

“Nova is… if we have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board,” Feige said in the exclusive interview. “Because of the connection to the Guardians universe, because there are more than one examples to pull from in the comics that are interesting. And you’re absolutely right, he was in the earliest drafts of the [Guardians of the Galaxy].”

However, Feige wouldn’t go any further with a timeline for the character potentially arriving in live-action. With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on the way following the third and fourth Avengers movies, it is possible for Nova to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before getting a standalone film.

Moon Knight confirmed for Marvel Studios?

Two stories went up tonight talking about a confirmation that Moon Knight could be coming soon to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Moon Knight, who first appears in Werewolf by Night #32 in 1976, before getting his own series with Moon Knight #1, could be getting a movie sooner rather than later.

Movie Web had this to say:

When asked if we should expect to see Moon Knight in the MCU in the near future, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige had this to say.

“Yes. Does that mean 5 years from now, 10 years from now, 15 years from now? There are stacks of character cards that we have in our development offices, which we look at. Which we pull for him, which we discussed.”

Comicbook.com had contradicting stories.

In the first of two stories, Comicbook.com confirms the interview with movie potential.

But Comicsbook.com stated that the Director Daredevil is interested in making Moon Knight into a tv show.

Official Venom Trailer Released

After the leaked trailer hit the internet a little while ago, Sony has released the official Venom trailer. It is the same as the leak, just better quality. Check it out below.

X-Men Vol. 2 #205, Marvel Comics, January 2008.

Kevin Feige Could See Marvel Making Money Off A Nova Movie

Kevin Feige Could See Marvel Making Money Off A Nova Movie

He says the character has "immediate potential."

Source: TV and Movies Dot Com

While it may be years before Moon Knight comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it'll be a lot sooner for Nova to grace the big screen, according to mastermind Kevin Feige. Talking to TV and Movies Dot Com, Feige said:

"Nova is... if we have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board. Because of the connection to the Guardians universe, because there are more than one examples to pull from in the comics that are interesting. And you're absolutely right, he was in the earliest drafts of the [Guardians of the Galaxy]."

The original Nova, Richard Rider, was a member of the Nova Corps, an intergalactic police force, based on the planet Xandar. As a high school student, Rider was given the uniform and powers of the Nova Corps by Rhomann Dey to fight their war against the Skrulls.

The Sam Alexander version of Nova is a high school student with an abusive father who talks about his supposed life as a Nova Centurion. After injuring himself, Alexander wakes up in a hospital where Rocket Raccoon and Gamora reveal his father's true identity, inheriting his father's Nova helmet.

It's unknown which version of Nova would appear in the MCU, but with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 in the works, we'll find out sooner rather than later.

I RENE TARDI PRISONER OF WAR IN STALAG 2B HC
(W) Jacques Tardi (A/CA) Jacques Tardi
In September 1939, René Tardi went to war. Less than a year later, the French army was defeated and he was a prisoner of war, like 1.6 million other French soldiers. After 4 years and 8 months in a POW camp, René returned home, bitter and ashamed. Stalag IIB is Jacques Tardi's homage to his father and a testimony to the silent suffering of a generation of men.
Based on René's memories, Stalag IIB - the first of two volumes - recounts brutal years of captivity under the Nazis and the POWs' attempts to reclaim moments of humanity. René recalls the roll calls in sub-zero temperatures, daily acts of resistance, crushing boredom - and especially the omnipresent hunger.
With four decades of cartooning and almost two dozen graphic novels behind him, Jacques Tardi masterfully recreates historical and personal details with remarkable fidelity, guided by extensive research and his father's notes. Featuring some of Tardi's most intense and meticulous drawing, punctuated by somber greys and punches of red and blue rendered beautifully by Rachel Tardi, Stalag IIB is a personal and artistic triumph.
$29.99

YOU ARE THERE HC
(W) Jean-Claude Forest (A/CA) Jacques Tardi
THE SATIRICAL MASTERPIECE THAT USHERED IN THE GRAPHIC NOVEL ERA TO EUROPEAN COMICS
One of the earliest full-length, standalone graphic novels to be published in Europe, and certainly one of the best and most original, Ici Même was serialized in the adult French comics monthly (A suivre) in the early 1980s and then released in book form. A quarter of a century later, this dark, funny, consistently surprising masterpiece has finally been translated into English.
An unexpected yet smoothly confident collaboration between the darkly cynical Jacques Tardi and the playful fantasist Jean-Claude Forest (of Barbarella fame), You Are There is set on a small island off the coast of France, where unscrupulous landowners have succeeded in overtaking the land from the last heir of a previously wealthy family. That heir, whose domain, in a Beckettian twist, is now reduced to the walls that border these patches of land he used to own, prowls the walls all day, eking out a living by collecting tolls at each gate.
His seemingly hopeless struggle to recover his birthright becomes complicated as the government sees a way of using his plight for the sake of political expediency, and the romantic intervention of the daughter of one of the landowners (who has her own sordid history with the politician) engenders further difficulties, culminating in an apocalyptic, hallucinatory finale.
Set in Tardi?s preferred early 20th century milieu, You Are There is drawn in his crisp 1980s neo-?clear line? style, gorgeously detailed, elegantly stylized, with impossibly deep slabs of black: You Are There is a feast for both the eyes and the brain.
HC: $29.99
SC: $19.99

DISNEY ROSA DUCK LIBRARY HC VOL 09 THREE CABALLEROS RIDE

This volume includes the title story plus "The Beagle Boys Vs. the Money Bin," where Grandpa Blackheart finds the blueprints to Scrooge's vault and "Forget It," where Magica De Spell hits Scrooge and Donald with a brainwashing spell! Presented with brilliant color with a trove of Rosa's cover art and behind-the-scenes factoids, these Duckburg epics are back at a bargain price worthy of Scrooge himself!

Murry's first seven Mickey serials are all here - all newly recolored in the warm colors from the original Dell comic books!

SONG OF AGLAIA HC
(W) Anne Simon (A/CA) Anne Simon
The Song of Aglaia is the first solo graphic novel by cartoonist Anne Simon, presenting a beautifully crafted female spin on the classic heroic myths of Greek literature, tracing the journey of a victimized and then almighty woman with a graceful understanding of human relationships and loving nods to the Bronte sisters, David Bowie, and the Beatles.

Black Widow Solo Movie Details Surfacing

Black Widow Solo Movie Details Surfacing

Jac Schaeffer was hired to write the film in January.

Source: That Hashtag Show

With the hiring of a screenwriter for a future Black Widow solo film, leaks regarding the film's story were bound to happen. Word on the street is that the film will take place 15 years after the fall of the Soviet Union, placing the film in the mid 2000s and set before Iron Man 2. Early discussions also include Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier in the film, who is very open to going back to work.

Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several writers before going with Jac Schaeffer and execs met with Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson to see what she wanted from a Black Widow movie.

Schaeffer broke out with her Black List script The Shower, which led to Anne Hathaway to hire her for Nasty Women, a female-centric take on Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

BEHOLD VENOM ACTUALLY IN VENOM!

BEHOLD VENOM ACTUALLY IN VENOM!

The 90s movie grit continues to shine on this adaptation of the Marvel character as Cinema Con trailer leaked, but basically it was the money shot.


So the one big problem many had with the first Venom trailer was that there was basically no Venom in it. Whelp it looks like the trailer that was shown at Cinema Con (April 23-26 in Las Vegas) changed that position as footage from it leaked online showing Venom being Venom. 

Of course, it being everywhere now you can get it at any site (until Sony unleashes the deleting hounds). Here's the trailer on YouTube Facebook (because Sony already cleansed the damn site of videos already by the time I was writing this article):

 

And because I save things, here's the money shot:

venom

So there you have it. Thoughts? There's something about it that reminds me of 1997's Spawn. Maybe it's the way the symbiote transforms into the Venom head. It just reminds me so much of that damn effect used in that movie too. What you folks think?

Durnkin Reveewz: Action Comics #1,000

Durnkin Reveewz: Action Comics #1,000

Yeah I know, I suck at Microsoft Paint about as much as the final story sucked you out of all that goodwill you read prior to it.


 

*To those who do not know what they're about to read. Well, here's your warning. The following is just Zechs being Zechs. Grammatical errors are bound to happen you down three bottles of This Ain't Your Dad's Root Beer or several soft drinks mixed with Captain Morgan trying to comprehend the garbage you read.

Further, these reviews began on the forums. Those looking for a numerical system as per my other reviews best look else. Some folk above me love me blurting out raw brutally honest shit, and rather have that be on the front page.So there. You've been warned. Anything now is on your head for not following the warning. 

If you so wish and recommend me some horrific comics for October if you join our Patreon. After all, someone's gotta pay for my drinking tab.

Well, this is the first comic in a long time that I loved, but also hated. My absolute favorite was Scott Snyder's out of all things. What can I say? I'm a sucker for Superman/Lex Luthor. Just as good, but slightly below his stuff were the other selections of Brad Meltzer's, Geoff Johns/Richard Donner's, Dan Jurgens', Louise Simonson's, and Paul Dini's (who's tale felt like the perfect ending for the actual issue, instead we get.. well more on that later). Then there the middle ground where it was good, but felt lacking (aka Pete Tomasi's). It was a good story that tied in a ton of Superman mythos, but I'm kind of puzzled why the 2000s weren't included (was it that bad?) and how the 90s nod was Steel/Superboy? I mean I don't mind that another 90s fellow wasn't in it. Cause said character got the final glory to be the final villain Dan Jurgens' finale to his latest run in #999 (and put aside to avoid the catastrophe of).  Still, it just felt odd that that era more so that Tomasi himself admires (*cough* Manchester Black *cough*) and we kind of don't get that. Nor the "Our Worlds at War" costume Superman had during that period. I mean sure, Electric Superman wasn't in this comic too, but that along with no Superboy Prime? Huh... kind of perplexed. But, it is a fun story that involves Vandal Savage and Hypertime. Maybe Tomasi just hates certain portions of the 2000s, which given his Batman work does the same. Then maybe this not being in here shouldn't be so surprising then?  

The other middle ground was Tom King's tale, which was alright. It was gorgeous to look at (which anything Clay Mann does is a freaking work of art). But I kept thinking more back to the other's, and it was kind of forgettable. Probably didn't help that this story was basically the entire preview first shown of the comic a few weeks before. Like, "okay I read this one," but *goes back to Snyder or even Johns/Donner. Oh yeah. That's the sweet Superman spot. I guess that's why the story didn't phase me as much, and I'm kind of sad because the art of Mann is so damn good. 

And of course, the utter batshit insanity that is Neal Adams nowadays. Like what's there to say about stories done by him now? You have to almost compare the scale of craziness to my drunkness. There's Batman Oddessy levels of holy crap to Superman: The Coming of the Supermen I'll have what he's having to the current Deadman mini which was... huh. I guess the craziness is just throwing anything at the wall now to see what sticks? But it is Neal Adams, so he can do just whatever the hell he wants. I'll still read it and be amazed at his art no matter how crazy the story is. 

But as I went thru each story the lingering doubt started to creep into my head. "Wait this is HIS first issue. Give him a break. Maybe it'll be good. Maybe it'll be in the middle." Then... after Dini's. I gasped as the final Superman story in the comic was... Brian Michael Bendis's. Why? I know he's taking over the comic. But why? It just felt... wrong for his story to end the issue. And of all the stories it felt out of place. Here you had a ton of one and done stories, but with the final, we get this teaser for what is to come in "Man of Steel". 

The "twist" and the first story left me sighing at the same old tropes Bendis just seems to do. Not to mention just overusing the, "Hey he's got his trunks back." Line over and over. It felt like Bendis was taking a baseball to my head and bashing me in on this fact. It would suddenly explain the loss of brain cells no doubt lost when reading this comic and the fact I did enjoy one tiny moment in this story: aka Superman being thrown to a window where people are at and him stopping just an inch. 

That was good, or maybe it was brain damage. I dunno at this point.  I just remember getting to the final page and the "twist" made me groan. That and it made me question me giving Bendis a chance when he throws out this twist. Which isn't earth-shattering, it's just meh. Likewise the ending. It ends like that? Come on! This story just feels like it would have been better suited in DC Nation #0 not here. It feels like truly the odd man out of the stories here which all had this one and done. 

In any case, Action Comic #1000 was exactly what I wanted. It gave us some quality Superman stories that celebrated the character's years in publication. It gave us a lot of stuff that has happened in the character's run and the future. Whatever that maybe. Other than it'll probably be forgotten after that run is finished.

Boom! Studios and WWE have teamed up to bring fans WWE: Undertaker, "an all-new original graphic novel exploring the career of the legendary Superstar, considered one of the greatest performers in WWE history."

"Deep-dive into how he got hooked up with Pall Bearer. A deep-dive into his relationship with Kane. Trying to imagine what conversations between the two of them would have been like backstage after Kane debuts and the Undertaker realizes that this brother that he thought had died when he was a child, is still alive."

New Character Posters For ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

New Character Posters For 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

Get another look at the not-so-innocent crew

Source: @starwars Twitter feed

Well post production has finally wrapped for the Star Wars spin-off Solo: A Star Wars Story, so it just advertising until its release.

 

 

 

Today, we get some new character posters for the movie. The new posters aren't that different from the initial posters, but uh… some people had issues with them.

Anyway, here are the new character posters revealed via the Star Wars Twitter feed:

 

 

 

han-solocharacterposter.jpgHere's Alden Ehrenreich as Han. You've seen the trailers so… well, we'll see how it goes.

 

qira-solocharacterposter.jpgEmilia Clarke as Qi'ra

Qi'ra is Han's childhood friend. Here's how the Star Wars: Insider magazine describes her:

"… clever and calculating , with a sophisticated edge and a knack for devious skullduggery.

Qi'ra is a secretive woman of the shadows, but who she really is is hidden away, and visible only to those she trusts."

 

lando-solocharacterposter.jpgDonald Glover plays Lando Calrissian who will eventually betray Solo to Darth Vader, then goes on to do battle against the Empire

 

 

chewbacca-solocharacterposter.jpgThat's not cool, they are not giving Joonas Suotamo credit for playing Chewbacca. It's hard to fill Peter Mayhew's shoes, but give the guy some love…

 

beckett-solocharacterposter.jpgWoody Harrelson is Tobias Beckett, who acts as a mentor to Han and recruits him to his crew.

 

val-solocharacterposter.jpgThandie Netwon will play Val

Val is a part of Beckett's crew and is described by Star Wars: Insider as:

"… occasionally prickly Val is cool and self-assured without being flashy. Measured and methodical, she is a crack shot with a blaster rifle, and the most even-headed and capable member of the ragtag gang of rogues Beckett has recruited…"

 

 

dryden-solocharacterposter.jpgPaul Bettany  is   Dryden Vos. Little is know about this character, but it was the one Michael K. Williams  originally was cast for.

 

l3-37-solocharacterposter.jpgPhoebe Waller-Bridge gets credit (unlike Chewie) as L3-37

 

Star Wars: Insider says that L3-37 is Lando's navigator who cobbled herself together from astromech and protocol droid parts. She is:

"… an indignant, spirited and somewhat eccentric companion, who cares deeply about droid rights. With a mind of her own (after all, she built it) L3-37 is subservient to no one."

 

rio-solocharacterposter.jpgJon Favreau also gets credited as Rio Durant

 

Little has been revealed about this character, Favreau tweeted out his association with the character:

 

US fans aren't the only ones to get character posters. Star Wars UK also revealed a few posters of their own…

Where the Infinity Stones Are Now In Marvel Comics

With Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters featuring a story where Earth’s mightiest heroes try to stop Thanos from collecting all of the Infinity Stones, it won’t surprise you to hear that the folks at Marvel Comics are also rolling out a big story featuring those rainbow-colored rocks. Titled "Infinity Wars," it will also see various characters banning together in a massive conflict centered around the Infinity Stones.

As you may know, the powerful MacGuffins used to be called “Infinity Gems” in the comics, but thanks to 2015’s Secret Wars storyline that rejiggered the Marvel Universe, they were reintroduced as the “Infinity Stones” due to a power far greater than any force in the cosmos: corporate synergy. The colors have been switched up to match the movies, too.

Kevin Feige Could See Moon Knight On The Big Screen One Day

Kevin Feige Could See Moon Knight On The Big Screen One Day

Marvel just needs to figure out how to not pay Don Perlin first.

Source: Screen Rant

Marvel Studios is currently doing a press junket for Avengers: Infinity War and after asking who is going to die in the film, the next most asked question is "Is (insert character here) going to appear in a movie?" The latest seems to be regarding Moon Knight, the schizophrenic Marc Spector.

When asked about the potential of the character, Kevin Feige said:

Yes. Does that mean five years from now, 10 years from now, 15 years from now? There are stacks of character cards that we have in our, in our development offices, which we look at. Which we pull for him, which we discussed.

It would be great to get Moon Knight on the big screen, if only so Marvel can earn enough money to support Moon Knight co-creator Don Perlin medical bills, like they did for Rocket Raccoon co-creator Bill Mantlo after Guardians of the Galaxy made a bajillion dollars at the box office.

Marvel Studios Boss Addresses Namor’s Complicated Rights Status

Marvel wants to work out how to use Namor the Sub-Mariner in the MCU, but Universal's cinematic rights to the character continue to make that a difficulty.

With the impending Disney/Fox deal and the historical contractual complications around Namor, IGN talked to Kevin Feige about how the takeover could affect the cinematic future of Marvel's king of the sea.

IGN: With the Disney/Fox deal, if that pans out, with the Sony rights sharing deal with Spidey, the one big loose end, then, is Namor and Universal. Can you tell us what the status of that is? Is there any chance for him to just pop up in an MCU film? It just sounds like an incredibly complicated situation, for one character.

Unbeknownst to them, Megatronus' pursuit of the next ancient artifact, the Requiem Blaster, goes beyond his desire for power and the search will uncover mysterious secrets from Cybertron's past. Before the TRANSFORMERS: PRIME WARS TRILOGY concludes, a new Prime will ascend and all will bear witness to the true POWER OF THE PRIMES."

Amazon Adapting Two Jonathan Hickman Comics With Help Of Robert Kirkman

Amazon Adapting Two Jonathan Hickman Comics With Help Of Robert Kirkman

East of West and Transhuman will both be hour long dramas.

Source: Deadline

Amazon Studios is developing two hour long dramas based on Jonathan Hickman properties: East of West and TranshumanRobert Kirkman will executive produce both series through Skybound Entertainment's first-look deal with the studio.

Both projects will be created and executive produced by Hickman and its respective artist, East of West's Nick Dragotta and Transhuman's J.M. Ringuet. Including artists in adaptations is generally unheard of, and something Kirkman could learn something from.

Hickman will write East of West and Transhuman is currently looking for a writer.

East of West is set in a reimagined Western landscape where America is divided into seven nations. The series follows Death as he braves his fellow riders, monsters, and corrupt gunslingers in his quest to save his mortal family from the Apocalypse.

Transhuman is a science fiction drama set in the near future, centering around a divorced couple, who ran rival major corporations, offering humans the ability to genetically and robotically enhance themselves.
