For a rundown, with images, CLICK HERE.



MARVEL'S DAZZLER: X SONG

Marvel Comics has announced a June 6 release for Dazzler: X Song, a one-shot by writer Magdalene Visaggio and artist Laura Braga.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"It's all glitter and glamour in the underground punk scene...until Dazzler stumbles upon a part of her world that's dangerous and violent. Now, it's up to Dazzler to protect her dedicated Inhuman fans, even if doing so means that she has to turn to her own past for clues and answers."

"Dazzler has always been one of my favorite X-Men, and one of the most sadly underutilized," said Visaggio. "She's been wandering for so long, and I'm so excited to help bring her back to her musical roots and the X-family. Anyone who knows my work knows how much I love to frontline women who quite literally rock, and I hope me and Laura can bring some of that same energy and positivity to Dazzler."

The cover is by Elizabeth Torque.

CLOAK & DAGGER: Freeform has released a new poster image from Marvel's Cloak & Dagger, which will premiere on the network on Thursday, June 7.

Here's how the show is described:

"Marvel's Cloak & Dagger is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) -- two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging. The network has ordered 10 one-hour episodes."

Here's how the show is described:

Marvel's Cloak & Dagger stars Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Carl Lundstedt, James Saito and J.D. Evermore. The series is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. Joe Pokaski serves as showrunner and executive producer; Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are also executive producers.

RITTER DIRECTOR? Krysten Ritter said that Season 2 of Jessica Jones, which was directed by all female directors, has left her interested in directing herself.

"I would love to. I like to branch out and always challenge myself," she said during an appearance on CBS' The Talk. "The great thing is about this job is I'm on set every day, I'm in almost every scene, so I'm learning so much. I get to be a sponge and the crew and camera guys are always so generous with me, teach me which lenses were on and why. So I try to make as many mountains out of molehills as I can."
