There’s a huge debate about whether or not the fan pairing of Sterek (Stiles Stilinski and Derek Hale) should become canon in the Teen Wolf universe, and we’ve brought you some major reasons why they should be, but also why they shouldn’t.

It’s Teen Wolf Takeover month on Hypable.com, and today’s article discusses the potential romance which is dividing the fandom. Read all of our TWT articles here and submit your own!

This article is written by Tariq Kyle, and is purely speculative for both sides of the debate. The opinions in this piece do not represent Hypable as a whole, and should be read with an open mind. This is meant to give an even argument for both sides of the Sterek controversy, and we ask that all commenters keep that in mind!

Why should Sterek become canon?

It’d bring more diversity to the show.

One of the greatest things about Teen Wolf is that they have a gay character, Danny, whose sole purpose on the show isn’t to be the gay guy; he’s not your stereotypical homosexual with over-the-top clothes, a lisp, and a high voice. He’s just a normal kid on the lacrosse team that happens to be gay, and that’s fantastic!

It would be even better, however, to add a character who’s struggling with their sexuality to the point where they try new things during the show’s run to discover themselves. Heck, let’s add two! Stiles and Derek would be fantastic characters to play around with.

It could be a great story arc for both characters.

We’ve already seen Stiles hint at being bisexual during the past two seasons when he asks Danny if he thinks he’s cute, and then again this past season when Danny offered to stop Stiles from being a virgin as a joke, and Stiles took him seriously. His character is definitely open-minded enough to go down the path of sexual self-discovery, and it’s in no way a far stretch from the current character arc.

Derek, on the other hand, is a different story. His character hasn’t shown too much interest in the same gender, but that can’t stop him from falling for Stiles at some point in the show! Stiles and Derek have already formed a sort of alliance, working together to keep their friends and family safe from the Alpha pack and Peter, so a Castle-styled romantic arc isn’t out of the question.

If you don’t watch Castle, the two main love interests in the show (Kate Beckett and Richard Castle) start off not liking each other in season 1, only to fall for each other and finally getting together in season 5. It was the ship we all hoped for, and something that Sterek can easily follow suit with.

The following is huge.

Let’s face it, if it weren’t for some shipper communities (Klaine, Swan Queen, etc.), the two characters we want to ship the most usually end up not interacting with each other in the show in any other way than what the show runner intended.

Swan Queen shippers have been able to get the show runners to write small nods to them in the show, with a connection happening between Regina and Emma rather than them staying complete archenemies. Klaine shippers can be proud with how loud they’ve been, because they’ve been heard by Ryan Murphy (the show runner for Glee) multiple times, and we’re sure some scenes were thought up because of how loud the fandom has been.

And we’ve gotten small nods to Sterek when Stiles had to save Derek from the drowning in season 2, and them laying on top of another without the ability to move (which probably excited every Sterek shipper in the world), so it’s not hard to imagine Jeff Davis writing more nods to the Sterek fan base and possibly making it canon.

Those are just some reasons we think Sterek should become canon. Continue on to the next page to see why we think they shouldn’t be.

The Powers That Be have spoken, and they’re saying Guillermo del Toro will not be making a third Hellboy installment.

Fans across the globe are shedding tears as we learn that director/writer del Toro will not be helming another Hellboy movie. It’s time to punch something, smoke a cigar, and then find a kitten before you settle in for the bad news.

In mid-January, del Toro asked fans to vote in a 24-hour poll to show support for making Hellboy III. He promised that if it got 100,000 votes within the time frame, he’d take it to the studio and have a talk with them about making the film.

The Powers That Be have spoken, and they’re saying Guillermo del Toro will not be making a third Hellboy installment.

Fans across the globe are shedding tears as we learn that director/writer del Toro will not be helming another Hellboy movie. It’s time to punch something, smoke a cigar, and then find a kitten before you settle in for the bad news.

In mid-January, del Toro asked fans to vote in a 24-hour poll to show support for making Hellboy III. He promised that if it got 100,000 votes within the time frame, he’d take it to the studio and have a talk with them about making the film.

Unfortunately, del Toro did not get the answer we were hoping for.

However, there is hope for fans of the comics, as artist and creator Mike Mignola reminded us that just because del Toro isn’t going to be involved anymore, it doesn’t mean there won’t be future Hellboy movies. There’s always hope.

This is good news for those who perhaps didn’t like del Toro’s take on the character. It hints at a possible reboot of the franchise, but if that were to happen, don’t expect Ron Perlman to reprise his role.

For those who fell in love with Perlman’s interpretation of the titular character, this is certainly a blow. However, del Toro does wish the franchise luck, and it’s not like he’s hurting for work (he’s got Netflix’s Trollhunters, Pacific Rim 2, and The Shape of Water, to just name a few).

This tweet is certainly interesting, as it hints that he wanted to take Hellboy in a new direction, but his vision did not match the vision of the studio. Does this mean they’ve got another idea in mind already, and if so, will it be Hellboy III, or a Hellboy for a new generation?

With Ron Perlman out of the picture, it’s likely the studio may try to do a reboot, rather than replace the actor for a potential sequel. If there is a reboot, there could be resistance from fans, but with updated technology and someone else’s vision, we could be looking at an interesting new set of superhero movies that will still feel different from the blockbusters currently taking over cinemas.

The synopsis for Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda reads, “Simon Spier is sixteen and in love. Sure, he has never met the mysterious ‘Blue’ in person, but he’s falling hard and fast for their email love letters. There’s only one problem: Blue is a boy, Simon is gay, and he hasn’t told anyone else.”

The novel made the world (and Hypable) fall in love with the story, and the current cast and creative team have fans excited for this adaptation. With Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment (The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers) behind the scenes, it’s bound to be a big production.

How excited are you for ‘Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda’?

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon is best known for his terrifying turn as Ramsay Bolton in HBO’s Game of Thrones. He has starred in the British series Misfits and Vicious, and may never play a hero again in his life.

Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb, who also serves as an executive producer on Inhumans, suggests that those villainous skills will be well-deployed in the role of Maximus.

“Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish, and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life,” Loeb says. “We’re thrilled to have him on board.”

Showrunner Scott Buck agrees.

“Maximus is a complex character. Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment,” he says, “And I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent.”

Marvel’s Inhumans will be produced in partnership with IMAX. The first two episodes will screen in IMAX theaters before the show’s network debut in mid September. Spanning the course of eight episodes, the series will tell the story of the Inhuman royal family, with the associated drama that just happens when you’re a family of aliens with magical powers trying to rule a secret city.

A leaked cast list for Inhumans hinted at a complex lineup of characters, including Black Bolt’s wife Medusa and her sister Crystal. Karnak, as well as the three-legged horse Gorgon and amphibious Triton round out the eclectic cast. And with Iwan Rheon in place as Maximus, it seems like just a matter of time before the rest of the family falls into line.

What do you think of Iwan Rheon as Maximus in Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’?
