With production now complete on Deadpool 2, it’s time to start getting excited about the Merc with a Mouth’s next adventure, especially because it’ll arrive in what’s shaping up to be a big year for the X-Men franchise, what with both The New Mutants and Dark Phoenix also releasing. In the case of Wade Wilson, though, all signs point to the sequel becoming another smashing success and being the good guy he is, Ryan Reynolds has now given us a great look behind the scenes.

Abortion on TV: Three Ways Show Creators Got to Tell Abortion Stories on Their Own Terms
In 2016, three abortion stories told on TV caught the attention of critics. The plots on “Jane the Virgin,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “You’re the Worst” all normalized abortion as a natural part of women’s health. All of these stories, however, occurred pre-Trump.

While the debate over women’s reproductive rights never went away, the topic is back in the spotlight as a new health care bill seeks to treat pregnancies and rape as pre-existing conditions and Texas legislators seek to pass anti-abortion bills. Over on Hulu, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is looking less and less like fiction.

Chewbacca's Son in the Star Wars Holiday Special Is Officially Canon
There has never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan, not just because there is a new movie hitting theaters every year, but because there are also numerous novels and comic books being released that are part of the official canon. A new book entitled Aftermath: Empire's End was released today, which, as we previously reported, addresses the fate of the much-maligned Jar Jar Binks. But it also includes another intriguing revelation as well. This book confirms that Chewbacca's son, seen only during the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special, is now, in fact part of the official Star Wars cinematic canon.

Screen Rant reports that there are sections of this novel which offer numerous interludes, providing "snapshots" of the goings-on in several different parts of the galaxy. One of these interludes is set on Kashyyyk, following a Wookiee named Lumpawaroo, a.k.a. "Waroo." This Wookie is trying
