I'll have a side of horror with my superheroes, please.

++ A multi-fandom friending meme. Go ye forth and find more fandom friends!

++ The New Mutants is going to be a superhero horror film, which has me intrigued. I like this new direction Marvel has taken with exploring different genres within the superhero universe rather than just repeating the same old summer blockbuster formula. Deadpool and Logan are examples of them going against that grain of trying something new, something different, with superhero stories by presenting them in another way. While we have no way of knowing at the moment how The New Mutants will do as a film, I am still fascinated by the concept of a superhero horror as a subgenre. I know it's probably been done before, but it's so rarely seen, and I hope that this gives the inspiration for more storytelling of this kind. And also because, personally, horror is my favorite genre and I would love to see more superhero movies appropriately placed in that category to give more variety.

++ Along those lines, The Gifted is a show that I will be getting too very soon because I've heard that it's pretty good. I don't know much about it other than Amy Acker is in it, and that Jamie Chung plays Blink. I've been fascinated with the character Blink since Fan Bingbing played her in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which her character was so brief in sadly. So having the character be in a television show makes me hope that there will be further exploration.

++ I've actually been enjoying the Will & Grace revival, which came as a pleasant surprise. Revivals tend to be a huge hit or miss with me, which I've ranted about before, but this one is actually quite decent. They've done a good job with remaining faithful to the original run of the show with the momentum and the jokes, it honestly doesn't feel like it even left the air. I've also noticed that, aside from mending certain things, they're doing things that they probably weren't allowed to do when the show first aired, which is very interesting indeed.
