What is the future of Archer? Following the recent conclusion of the FX cartoon series’ seventh season, the answer to that question remains unclear, as the network has not yet renewed the series, despite a cliffhanger at the end of season 7. The series has successfully reinvented itself multiple times, pivoting from the spy-based shenanigans of the early seasons to a drug-dealing plot, and then back to spying and then to a private detective show — while also, for obvious reasons, dropping the spy agency name ISIS. Now, it appears that if Archer does return, it might pivot again — to live action.
Yes, some of the show’s producers are considering a live-action movie, in which their actor ...

[This post contains SPOILERS for the season 3 finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.]
The end of one chapter marks the beginning of the next, but the season 3 finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did more than just close a single chapter.

[The super-producer Dame Grease (DMX, The LOX, Max B, and countless more) recently sat down with hip-hop personality and SOHH correspondent Shawn Setaro on his popular "The Cipher" podcast. Listen to the full interview and check out five gems Dame dropped during the Q&A.]
On his early influences:
"My parents were into music. But then you got the crack and drug era, which erased everything, and turned everything into survival. I was reintroduced back into music by groups like Public Enemy, NWA, A Tribe Called Quest, and Leaders of the New School."
On composing "We'll Always Love Big Poppa":
"That song and that beat was channelled through me...To this day, I still can't replay them chords, because they didn't come through my head. They were channelled."
On first hearing DMX's single "Born Loser":
"When I first heard it, I didn't like it. I was like, 'It's too hip-hoppy.' But I was like, 'The n*gga on there, though, is saying some sh*t, but it ain't getting captured.'"
On trying to make timeless music:
"My thing is, I am the 1800s to 3015. I leave that much leeway in the production. The key to music is timeless records. Every five years, the game and the world is going to change. So if you're not back a few years or ahead a few years, you're just here."
On the variety of sounds he uses:
"I've been around the world. I've got the sounds from Japan, from Libya, from everywhere. I'm universal. I put everything into it."

Warner Bros.’ Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has been a divisive movie, though it’s $785+ million global box office shows that it’s still performing decently in spite of the critics. Though it wasn’t the billion-dollar hit in theaters that the studio likely hoped it would be, its performance has been solid enough that the rest of the DC Extended Universe is still moving forward as planned.
One of the big upcoming parts of the DCEU are the two upcoming Justice League films, the first of which was scheduled to begin filming this week. While those behind the scenes are eager to point out the successes of Batman V Superman, they’re also happy to discuss how amazing Justice League ...
