It's been 16 months since “Westworld's” second season ended, and while Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's sophomore effort received more mixed reviews than their freshman debut, no one can deny just how highly-anticipated its upcoming third season is ahead of its March 15 debut. Especially in the wake of a “Game of Thrones” conclusion and with HBO's upcoming series like “Watchmen” and “His Dark Materials,” now is an interesting time for sci-fi/fantasy series on the cable juggernaut.
HBO recently released five images from the third season's upcoming second episode, which will air on March 22. Here's a look at the new photos and the ongoing struggles of several of the eclectic show's standout characters.Popular on IndieWire Photo : HBO Maeve Is Apparently Alive
“Westworld” fans thought Maeve was shot and killed, but the series' last plot twist revealed that she was alive and presumably well in Warworld, a Nazi-themed robot park. There was a dead soldier on the floor of Maeve's room, while another man was seen beaten and tied to a chair, with Maeve's knuckles covered in blood. What happened? The answer will hopefully be revealed in Episode 2.Photo : HBO Maeve and Hector Are Still Close
It appears that Maeve and Hector are still close, despite all the carnage including Maeve's apparent death in the Season 2 finale. How the two carry on, especially after Maeve was shown in the new Nazi-themed robot park in the season's Episode One ending, remains to be seen.Photo : HBO Bernard Is Still on the Run
Bernard is still laying low after the events of Season 2 but reluctantly murdered two co-workers after they recognized from wanted posters in the first Season 3 episode. It appears that Bernard has split personalities that he can switch between with the push of a button, and his final scenes in last week's episode saw him making plans to return to Westworld for unknown reasons.Photo : HBO Death Hasn't Stopped Hector, Either
Hector appears to be joining Maeve in the Nazi Warworld park. Like so many other robot hosts, death hasn't stopped Hector and the character, gun in hand, appears ready to continue fighting in Season 3.Photo : HBO Who Is Serac?
Serac Vincent Cassell is one of “Westworld” Season 3's biggest question marks. The mysterious trillionaire had a brief appearance in the season's official trailer, where he asked Maeve to murder Delores, but little else is known about him. If HBO teasing a new photo of him is any indication, Serac's grand plans could become a bit clearer on Sunday.Photo : HBO Where...
Eight movies from the X-Men cinematic universe not to be confused with the Marvel Cinematic Universe... at least not yet came out during the 2010s, but only one placed on our list of the Best Comic Book Movies of the Decade: Logan, which finished second overall after Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. The James Mangold-directed film was a commercial smash, and along with Deadpool, served as evidence that people will flock to see R-rated comic book movies. But will they see R-rated Star Wars movies?
I have no idea, because there's never been one. But Scott Derrickson, the writer and director of the MCU's Doctor Strange and the sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, until he left the project due to the always mysterious “creative differences”, pitched a 17-and-older Star Wars movie that I, for one, would like to see get made.
In a tweet that's since been deleted, Derrickson wrote, “Just asked what kind of Star Wars movie I would make. I answered that I would make HOTH — an R-rated frozen planet horror film in the vein of The Thing or Lovecraft's In The Mountains of Madness, with zero connection to any previous characters or storylines.” If A New Hope can show the charred corpses of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru, why not a Star Wars horror movie?
That wampa is waiting to get his revenge.

Has there ever been a sitcom as downright clever as Community? Aside from the gas leak year, Community was quicker than nearly every other comedy out there, with jokes flying fast but also taking seasons to reach a punchline.

Between paintball wars, zombie outbreaks, and the increasingly ridiculous presence of Senor Chang Ken Jeong, Community is never, ever boring.
