You’ve seen what we DON’T want to happen, now check out our own personal wishlist.

“Sony announces they are no longer jerks, will release Spider-Man rights to Marvel”

Back when Marvel made comics and only comics, it went ahead and sold its most valuable properties to anyone that would buy them. Fox got the Fantastic Four and X-Men, and Sony stole Spider-Man. After three films, Sony held on to Spider-Man, even after Disney/Marvel attempted negotiations to include Spidey in the biggest superhero crossover event ever. It even went further and rebooted its property to function as competition for Disney/Marvel, even going so far as to stamp a release date for a sequel, which is tentatively titled Amazing Spider-Man 2: He’s Still Technically Ours.

“Chris Brown to get in a bathtub full of scissors for women’s charity”

To borrow a line from the comedian who famously got Chris Brown to remove his Twitter account, “Call me old fashioned, but shouldn’t Chris Brown be in jail?” We can do you one better. Chris Brown apologizes for his horrific behavior, and proceeds to crawl into a bathtub filled with scissors and lemon juice. All profits from the event (there WILL be tickets sold) would be donated to women’s shelters across the globe.

“Three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep to join Mockingjay cast”

The Hunger Games film series is no stranger to Oscar nominated and Oscar winning actors in their midst. Factions of fans have started online petitions to get Streep to play the integral role of President Coin, and we have the tendency to respond to such speculation with a calm, cool and collected round of “OMG YESSSSS.” Nothing could make us happier than if the record-proven “best actor to exist ever” were to come on board to help wrap up the series.

Merlin to be renewed for sixth series, producers apologize for ruining everyone’s lives”

We’re celebrating a Month of Merlin here at Hypable, but the cause for our celebration is bittersweet. In a surprise move by the producers, fans were informed that series 5 would be Merlin‘s very last. With dozens of loose ends to tie up, only one solution makes sense: Dozens of new episodes to fulfill the fandom’s last requests.

“J.K. Rowling agrees to pen Hogwarts, A History

We’re not talking about a 60-page Quidditch Through The Ages exercise in brevity. We want 1,000 yellowing pages of historical glory, ranging from subjects like how Hogwarts survived the goblin rebellion, to a detailed and definitive map of the castle. Really, any return to Hogwarts would be met with open arms, but if we had the opportunity to put Hogwarts, A History on our shelves, we would fork over a month’s worth of galleons in an instant.

“Every 3D projector in the world breaks at once, 3D films rendered obsolete”

Unless a portion of your movie involves Ryan Gosling stepping out of the screen to invite an audience member to join his romantic love triangle, 3D has no place in the art of storytelling. We don’t want to get ourselves into any legal trouble here, but if a pseudo-terrorist group had hatched a plot to fill every 3D projector on Earth with strawberry jam to stop studios from launching blatant money-grabbing techniques, we might donate the three dollars we would have spent on those annoying glasses to their cause instead.

“Spice Girls and N*SYNC to go on worldwide SYNC and Spice and Everything Nice tour”

Although both sets of groups have vehemently rejected the idea of a comeback, a touring show starring both sets of entertainers would have enough mass appeal to ensure that at least fifty percent of humans on the planet would buy a ticket.

“Emma Stone to star in Lucille Ball biopic Lucy

This isn’t necessarily fandom based, but this bombshell actress has gained enough of a following to earn a fandom devoted just to her. Actors and actresses are recruited all the time to portray other famous people, and we can’t imagine anyone else with the humor, the class, and the chops to be able to take up the role. Bigwig studio producers everywhere, get on board with this before someone else does.

Sherlock series 3 to premiere tomorrow, episodes to double in length”

Each episode of Sherlock already clocks in at just under the length of an average movie, but what if every episode was the length of the average Peter Jackson outing? What if these episodes were premiering tomorrow? Twice the Cumberbatch, twice the mystery, and all of it happening tomorrow. In true Sherlock fashion, that whole “delayed” move was a ruse to put fans off of the scent. If only.

“Disney buys rights to Firefly, proves that dreams can come true”

With the surprising news that Disney had resurrected Star Wars from the dead, it wouldn’t be altogether surprising to see that it is capable of granting wishes made upon a star. Yes, two of the show’s main players are currently involved in their own series, but that shouldn’t stop the magic makers over at Disney studios from bringing back the ‘verse that we fell in love with back in ’03.

Gilmore Girls‘ final four words left Rory’s story on quite the cliffhanger. Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino breaks down what it all means.

After years of waiting, the Gilmore Girls revival gave fans the highly anticipated final four words. They delivered a shocking revelation for Rory, while bringing the series full-circle. Fans (and some writers) were left confused and angry, while some felt oddly satisfied.

But what exactly did Amy Sherman-Palladino have in mind for those four words all those years ago? And what do they mean now for the future of the show as it stands?

Could ‘Gilmore Girls’ feature an abortion?

Gilmore Girls final four words

Never say never. That is the motto of Amy Sherman-Palladino after she went from saying “no” to a Gilmore Girls movie years ago to witnessing a revival come to life. The creator mentions to Buzzfeed that Rory is at a crossroads. “I think that somebody as smart as Rory is going to take a step back and look at all the angles, and then make her decision, because it’s too important a job to make the wrong decision when it comes to kids,” Sherman-Palladino comments.

Rory’s original story arc saw her entering this pregnancy at 22. Fresh out of college, the world was at her feet.

But, even at 32, Rory is just as unstable as ever. This is partially due to the fact that Amy Sherman-Palladino had to get her character back to the state of life she originally pictured Rory hitting.

A Year in the Life highlights how much growing up Rory still needs to do. She is no spring chicken who can rely on one good piece of writing to get her through the door. Rory always pushed the olive branch life extended to her until this point. Finally, it gave out and snapped back. The final four words sent her tumbling into reality.

Sherman-Palladino acknowledges that Rory must consider who she is and how that will affect the well-being of her child. Even though 32 is certainly not as young as 22, Palladino notes, “32 is frickin’ young, man.”

Lane’s pregnancy gave away a piece of the story that Sherman-Palladino hoped would belong to Rory. However, it did not ruin her master plan by any means. Speaking to TV Line, the creator adds, “By the way, Rory doesn’t have to keep the baby. There are choices here that she can make. It’s just the left turn. It’s that curveball that life throws you. I will say, weirdly, that I like it much more now.”

Not many series take the leap into tackling abortion. However, the few that do, namely Jane the Virgin‘s Xo story arc, approach it from a place of care and consequence. While religion plays a large role in Jane, the well-being of the mother, quality of life for the child, and emotional ramifications of the decision are universal circumstances.

Gilmore Girls viewers may not ever see the decision Rory makes in regards to her future.

It’s less about the boy and more about the mom

Team Logan, Team Jess, Team Dean, Team Paul (if you exist) can all put down their fighting arms. Sorry, but the next step for Rory in this moment is not obsession about a boy, but an examination of her options.

Sherman-Palladino goes on to say to TV Line, “Her discussion with Lorelai is going to be about, ‘What do I do? Where do I go from here?’ It’s not going to be about, ‘I can’t believe it’s this boy that wound up [being the father].'”

There are no cliffhangers

Gilmore Girls emily lorelai

Wait… what? You read that correctly. Amy Sherman-Palladino believes that the series left questions, sure, but it is closed for now. The final four words were meant to be — say it with me now — the final four words.

Finally, Emily finds some happiness in her darkest days spearing imaginary whales. Meanwhile, Lorelai lingers in her post-marital bliss. But Rory’s story does not close a chapter at all. Instead, a new chapter of her story at the same age as we found Lorelai all those years ago.

The cyclical nature of Gilmore Girls is a comfort to some, but not all. How do you feel?

Tris and Four’s story isn’t over just yet. A Divergent epilogue is on the way from series author Veronica Roth.

The Divergent epilogue is titled We Can Be Mended and will be released in January 2017. It’s “a short story that gives a glimpse into Four’s life five years after the conclusion of the Divergent series,” according to Veronica’s website.

It won’t be too easy to get, at least initially. We Can Be Mended will be sent as a printed book to those who pre-order Roth’s upcoming book Carve the Mark, which is set to be released on January 17.

To get the Divergent epilogue you must upload a copy of your Carve the Mark receipt on this website. The epilogue will be sent 4-6 weeks after Carve the Mark’s publication.

Here’s the cover (notice the Ferris wheel?):

‘Divergent’ epilogue plot

“A little while ago, my editor asked me if I had anything special written because she wanted to offer something to people who pre-ordered Carve the Mark since they’re usually the same people who supported the Divergent books so much,” said Roth on Tumblr. “I told her that I did have something written.”

“I’ve always said that the Divergent series felt complete to me, but a little while ago, I realized there was still some of the story I had left untold. So I wrote something just for myself about what Tobias had been up to in the years after Allegiant.”

Allegiant was published in 2013, and a collection of short stories starring Four was published the following summer. This’ll be the fifth short story Roth has published from the world of Divergent.

It’ll be interesting to see what’s going on in Four’s world so long after losing Tris. Will everything be okay? HAS HE FOUND A NEW GIRL? We could all use a little hope right now!

Maybe Lionsgate will use the new information to help adapt their fourth and final Divergent movie, which is titled Ascendant and may or may not be filmed for a television release.

Sense8 season 2 appears to be gearing up to release its first episode in a matter of weeks.

This morning, readers at SpoilerTV noticed that Sense8‘s Netflix page had been updated with news of a certain Sense8 Christmas Special:

‘Sense8’ season 2 release date

The Sense8 Christmas Special release date appears to be set for Friday, December 23. The message has since disappeared from the show’s Netflix page.

Murmurs of a Christmas Special have been around for some time, but this “accidental” announcement is the first time we have direct confirmation from Netflix.

In April, actress Jamie Clayton, who stars as Nomi Marks, essentially confirmed the Sense8 season 2 Christmas episode news:

Then there was this photo from Daryl Hannah (who plays Angel). The script says Sense8 season 2, episode 1 is a “Christmas Special”:


#sense8 #sense8season2 weeeeeee!!!

Despite an official announcement, it definitely seems like a Sense8 season 2 episode is coming soon. With the Christmas Special premiering on the Friday before the major holiday, we’re sure the “surprise” episode will have lots of people curling up on the couch and tuning in.

It’s unlike Netflix to release a single new episode of the season. They’re best known for dropping an entire season at once and letting viewers binge as they please.

Lana and Lilly Wachowski‘s original Netflix series, starring eight characters who can telepathically experience each other’s lives, was a hit from its summer 2015 launch. Naturally, fans have been growing increasingly eager for a new round of episodes as the wait grows longer and longer. Not even Netflix usually makes us wait for longer than a year between new seasons of shows.

The Christmas Special is rumored to premiere at a Comic-Con in Brazil in early December. The rest of season 2 is expected in early 2017.

Get ready!
