Jurassic World Indominus Rex

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) One of the central sticking points of Jurassic World was whether audiences would accept the Indominus Rex hybrid creature for the film.

10cloverfield

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Last year, fans of the original Cloverfield were surprised to learn that spec script The Cellar was actually a sequel called 10 Cloverfield Lane. The fact that J.J.

star-trek-discovery-poster

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I am a life long Star Trek fan. I have issues with JJ Abrams' Star Trek reboot, but understand why they went in the direction they did for the films.

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) The future of the X-Men series has been a bit in question.

A Geek’s Reaction to Fox’s X-Men TV Show Trailer: The Gifted

the-gifted

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) To be honest, it's very surprising that Fox has waited this long to make an X-Men based television show. Legion was a very strange (and very good) first go at a series based on Marvel mutants, but it existed off in its own very distinct universe. Fox's next … [Read more...]

Stranger Things Season 2 Plot Points Being Pushed to Later Seasons

stranger-things

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) One of the things to come straight out of left field last year was Netflix's Stranger Things.

marvel-studios

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) On paper, all of the Marvel films and television shows exist in the same universe known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The reality of it is that the ABC TV shows, Netflix shows, and films don't really crossover that much — if at all. Generally speaking, the … [Read more...]

Blade Runner 2049 EW

The full Blade Runner 2049 trailer is here! By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Sequels to successful movies are hard to make.
