Has Netflix plagiarized a 2016 comic by Brazillian artist Mary Cagnin? – TheBrag
“I’m in shock,” tweeted Cagnin. “I discovered that the 1899 series is simply identical to my comic Black Silence, which was published in 2016.” “It’s all there: The Black Pyramid. The deaths in the ship. The multinational crew. The seemingly strange and inexplicable things. The eye icons and when they appear. The voices that call them. Subtle plot details, like the personal dramas of the characters, including the mysterious deaths.”

Thirty years ago: Superman died. Well, sort've.
Story at Tulsa World
Four different Superman titles per month were published in that era, and sales hovered around 150,000 per issue. Six million copies of the death issue were sold, which was great in the short term for DC Comics and comic store owners, but not so great for investors who hoped to make a killing in the re-sale market. With six million copies floating around, pretty much everyone who wanted a copy already had one — or more than one.
Short Review: She-Hulk, Attorney-at-Law
Ribald in places, plagued by what plagues TV shows in general (mainly repetition, especially in visuals and sets); but on the whole this series took the risks of playing up more humor and "4th wall" dynamics, to the extent that we literally see a She-Hulk crawl out through the holding screen for Disney-Plus programming and address the audience and then go on a hunt for the "writer's room" where she castigates the script-makers of She Hulk, Attorney-at-law for taking the "easy way" out on a particular episode.

What's gonna happen in MCU Phase V – AV Club
But as Phase Five signals the beginning of the Multiverse Saga’s second act, expect a greater crossover cohesiveness as the MCU begins to assemble characters into intriguing configurations and reveal more of the stakes posed by the increasing bleed-over of alternate chronologies. Every announced Phase Five film and TV series to date spotlights characters the audience is already familiar with—even Blade and Daredevil, to a certain extent—so in most cases origin stories and explainers can be set aside...

Variety: Wakanda Forever has huge debut
Story at MSN Variety
Those ticket sales fell short of its predecessor, 2018’s “Black Panther,” which became an instant cultural phenomenon with its $202 million domestic debut. Still, the sequel’s initial turnout underscores the reality that Marvel is simply operating on another level, at least when it comes to getting butts in seats. Case in point: “Wakanda Forever” has earned almost as much at the global box office in three days as rival comic book movie “Black Adam,” has generated after four weeks in theaters. And that film, which has $352 million in the bank, features Dwayne Johnson, who is considered to be one of the biggest movie stars in the world.
