The Eternals actor Haaz Sleiman has confirmed that Emmy nominee Brian Tyree Henry’s Phastos is indeed the LGBTQ+ character in the highly-anticipated MCU film. Sleiman further revealed that he is portraying the role of Phastos’ husband while opening up about the importance of representing a gay family.
“It’s a beautiful, very moving kiss. Everyone cried on set. For me, it’s very important to show how loving and beautiful a queer family can be.” Sleiman said. “Brian Tyree Henry is such a tremendous actor and brought so much beauty into this part, and at one point I saw a child in his eyes, and I think it’s important for the world to be reminded that we in the queer community were all children at one point. We forget that because we’re always depicted as sexual or rebellious; we forget to connect on that human part.”
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Teaser Trailer Released
Showtime has released a new teaser for their upcoming Penny Dreadful spinoff series, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, featuring Game of Thrones alum Natalie Dormer’s Magda as she narrates a deadly prophecy that threatens to bring an end to all. The series is scheduled to debut on Sunday, April 26.
City of Angels is set in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with Mexican-American folklore and social tension. Rooted in the conflict between characters connected to the deity Santa Muerte and others allied with the Devil, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels will explore an exciting mix of the supernatural and the combustible reality of that period, creating new occult myths and moral dilemmas within a genuine historical backdrop.
When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.
Not one, but two familiar faces will move on from the CW adaptation of the Archie comic book series at the end of the fourth season. Skeet Ulrich, who portrays Sheriff F.P.

Creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa spoke to TVLine, who broke the story; “Part of life in Riverdale — and part of growing up — is saying goodbye to people. I’m grateful to Skeet and Marisol for their incredible work on the show these last four years, and we all wish them well on their future endeavors. F.P. and Hermione will never be far from our hearts. And, of course, they’re always welcome back in Riverdale.”
Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady Will Have A New Look in Venom 2
Just Jared has unveiled a new look for Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady from Venom 2, who has lost his wildly-hated orange mop top in favor of a much better hairdo.

Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, was briefly introduced into the Venom movie franchise during the original film’s mid-credits scene that revealed Woody Harrelson as Venom’s archenemy. It was recently confirmed that Harrelson would be returning for the Venom sequel. Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (Moonlight) was also reportedly in talks to play the role of villain Shriek, who is Carnage’s love interest and accomplice.
Tom Holland revealed the Uncharted film will indeed be a Nathan Drake origin story.
“I think what Uncharted offers that most video games films don’t is that it’s an origin story to the games,” Holland said. “So if you played the games, you haven’t seen what’s going to happen in the film. And if you haven’t played the games, you’re going to enjoy the film because it’s information that everyone else is getting at the same time. But I’m super excited to make that movie and it’s been a long time coming.”
