Ex-Solo Director Congratulates Scott Derrickson For Leaving Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

Scott Derrickson announced his departure from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with a simple tweet earlier this week, much to the shock and dismay of just about everyone. In this time of need, heroes have stepped up to offer condolences and support, including a fellow director who left his own high-profile, Disney-controlled movie.

In addition to non-fired director Duncan Jones and many entertainment writers, creative force to be reckoned with Phil Lord offered some condolences and also admittance to an exclusive club. Taking to Twitter, here’s what he shared:

You have joined a secret club of punk rockers my friend. Godspeed and love.

Netflix Orders Animated Series From ‘Adventure Time’ Creator Pen Ward, Comedian Duncan Trussell

  • Variety
Netflix has ordered “The Midnight Gospel,” an animated series from “Adventure Time” creator Pendleton Ward and comedian and host Duncan Trussell. The series will debut on the streaming service in 2020.

Co-creators Ward and Trussell will executive produce the eight-episode series, which is “set in a fantastical universe” and draws on interview clips from Duncan Trussell’s podcast, “Duncan Trussell Family Hour.” The animation production company behind “Big Mouth,” Titmouse Animation, is the studio.

The show centers on Clancy, a “spacecaster with a malfunctioning multiverse simulator [who] leaves the comfort of his home to interview beings living in dying worlds,” according to Netflix.

In addition to Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time” — which ran for 10 seasons — the Emmy-winning Ward also has in the works the upcoming mini-series “Adventure Time: Distant Lands” for upcoming streaming service HBO Max, which launches in May. Ward’s credits also include “Bravest Warriors,” which he created and voiced,

Great Scott! Christopher Lloyd wants Doc & Marty to meet Rick & Morty

Rick and Morty, the critically acclaimed animated series created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, began life as a short parody of Doc Brown and Marty McFly from Back To The Future, so it would be only fitting that Rick and Morty would one day meet the pair who inspired their very creation.

Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 5

It seems like there’s been some unrest over season four of Rick and Morty within the fan base. I’ve seen numerous comments and have had conversations with fans who have found the episodes so far to have been boring, stupid, or boring and stupid. Critical killjoy that I am, I’ve found myself in the rare position of feeling like I’ve perhaps been more forgiving to the series than the average fan.

So, just to clear this up: I don’t think this season has been Rick and Morty at its best. Further, I’m in full agreement that the plotting has at times gotten so convoluted that it’s been just plain boring.

‘Rick and Morty’ Episode Breakdown Is Here to Save You from Over-Thinkin’ It

The first batch of new episodes for Season 4 of Adult Swim's Rick and Morty are just about wrapped up; Episode 5 airs this coming Sunday with five more episodes to arrive in short order. But if you have questions about the latest episode, "Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim’s Morty", you're in luck!

‘Rick and Morty’ Review: Dragon Tale ‘Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim’s Morty’ Proves You Can Have Too Many Fantasies
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Rick and Morty” Season 4, Episode 4, “Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim’s Morty.”]

Rick Sanchez is so often a character with seemingly superhuman abilities that “Rick and Morty” frequently feels like a magic show. His arsenal is endless, his plans so impossibly far-reaching that they feel like the product of a wand flick and not merely an advanced mind.

So when this week’s episode of the show finds itself in a showdown with an actual mage, it’s hard to see where one ends and the other begins. By the end, it almost becomes a pointless distinction, but as with so many “Rick and Morty” impasses, it’s up to the next order of story to make up the difference. “Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim’s Morty” probably Season 4’s most directionless episode — there’s still a nagging feeling that this chapter is a boundless premise gradually working its way to something more pedestrian.

Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 4

There’s an argument to be made that Rick and Morty shouldn’t have any magic in it. It’s a sci-fi show so all impossible happenings should be the product of a cartoonish, bastardized idea of science, and the introduction of magic conflicts with that and breaks the show’s rules.

On the other hand, Rick and Morty plays fast and loose with the rules of its world already. Rick regularly mentions that they’re on a TV show. The first season pitted Summer and Rick against the Devil himself, opening up the possibility that there’s an afterlife. Also, they’ve already dabbled in magic; the previous episode featured some kind of alien pharaoh’s curse.

Rick And Morty: 10 Jokes That Everyone Completely Missed In Season 3

We may be well into the 4th season of the zany sci-fi animation known as Rick and Morty, but, as it happens, there are still a ton of funny details, easter eggs, and subtle jokes packed into season 3 that remain largely unexamined.

With 10 episodes chock-full of insanity, along with plenty of rich, crazy science fiction absurdity, there's no shortage of content to digest. Show creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon are certainly no strangers to embedding a myriad of zingers, callbacks, and cheeky references in this wacky sci-fi romp that many fans might have missed.

Rick and Morty: Spencer Grammer Is Ready for Many More Days of Summer

Alec Bojalad Dec 2, 2019

Spencer Grammer, the voice of Summer Smith on Rick and Morty, talks about spending the next 70 episodes with the Smith/Sanchez family.

Rick and Morty is three episodes into its long-awaited fourth season. Those three episodes, however, represent just 4% of the output that Adult Swim expects for the beloved animated sci-fi comedy in the coming years.

Back in 2018, Adult Swim came to terms with Rick and Morty creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon on a new deal that included an order of 70 new episodes! To fans, that means many new Rick and Morty adventures await. To the cast and crew, it means that and more.

“It's a blessing,” Spencer Grammer, who plays Morty’s older sister Summer, says. “It's the greatest because as an actor you're constantly hoping that you're going to do something that's going to stand the test of time.”

Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 3

Rick and Morty has been insane and convoluted with its sci-fi plots for a good while now. Way back in the season two premiere we already had all that nonsense about multiple potential realities. But I’m not sure we’ve had a season like this that, so early on, is shaping up to be defined by breakneck, complex plotting. I mean, I thought the premiere was bonkers, but now here we are, only two episodes later, with the breathlessly insane “One Crew Over the Crewcoo’s Morty.”

The episode is good in that it held my attention throughout; it’s so nonstop there’s no opportunity to be bored. The plot being a dressing-down of heist movies, it’s

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Dan Harmon

Here’s an American writer, actor and producer who has a bit of an edge about him. He was born Daniel James Harmon, in January of 1973, and he has written scripts for, produced and acted in numerous popular shows and films that you probably recognize the names of. Harmon has been described as a guy that does not have a filter. He says and does what he wants without hesitation, and take-it-or-leave-it, he is, who he is. Adult Swim and Rick and Morty are just a couple of the most popular shows he’s associated with, but the sitcom, Community is

How Rick and Morty became TV’s most unlikely hit

As the sci-fi cartoon beloved by millennials and Kanye returns, its creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon discuss its warped universe

Back in 1998, McDonald’s launched a limited-edition Szechuan dipping sauce to tie in with the release of Disney’s Mulan. Few noticed when the sauce was quietly discontinued soon after, but one man never gave up hope that it might return. That man was Justin Roiland, co-creator of Rick and Morty, and his love for the sauce was such a running joke in the writers’ room of the hit animated comedy that it made it into the show’s third season as a major plot point. Then things got weird. McDonald’s, never ones to shy away from a publicity stunt, brought Roiland’s favourite condiment back for one day only in 2017. It sold out immediately, and demand was so high in some branches that police had to be called

Dan Harmon Noncommittal About ‘Community’ Movie, Cast Votes Yes
Today’s raucous Vulture Festival La panel featuring the team behind NBC’s meta-comedy Community (2009-2015) was billed as a reunion but the event did not really answer the real “reunion” question — that is, whether the cast and creatives will ever reunite to make a Community movie.

Show creator Dan Harmon and Ep/writer Chris McKenna were joined on the panel by cast members Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Jim Rash, Yvette Nicole Brown and Ken Jeong. At the end of a panel filled with inside jokes and tales about cast members’ favorite episodes, Harmon gave an equivocal — meta — answer to the question of whether the band is ever getting back together again for a feature film.

Harmon called the constant guessing about a future feature “a weird Ouija board thing.” “Who is supposed to say, ‘everyone do this’?” he fretted. “That’s what I’ve always said.
