  1. Eddie Redmayne Is the New Favorite For Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts

    We'll believe it when we finally see it.

    And so the speculation game continues. Not long after Matt Smith was supposedly being considered for the role, it is now Eddie Redmayne who is said to be the "favorite" for the role of Newt Scamander in Warner Bros.' adaptation of the Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

  2. Daniel Radcliffe May Play the Creator of Grand Theft Auto in a Film About Banning Video Game Violence

    So, pal, what's the source of conflict this time?

    Grand Theft Auto, a game known for its violence and adult nature, generated a lot of news a while back when a Miami lawyer was trying to ban video game violence and decided to make GTA his target. That dispute is the inspiration for a movie with the same name and the protagonist most likely by none other than Daniel Radcliffe.

  5. Stand And Be Sorted… By A Sorting Hat Twitter Bot

    I think we'd look pretty good in red and gold.

    Internet artist Darius Kazemi, aka @tinysubversions, is the wizard behind the newest Twitter novelty account: The Sorting Hat Bot. The premise is simple. You follow the bot, and you get sorted into a Hogwarts house, complete with a clever, pithy (although sometimes nonsensical) rhyme.

  6. J.K. Rowling Responds to Fan Who “Can’t See” Dumbledore as Gay

    Perhaps you've been the victim of a Blinding Jinx?

    It's been almost eight years since Deathly Hallows was released, but homophobia and heteronormativity know no statute of limitations. J.K. Rowling still fields questions about Dumbledore's sexuality and any potential LGBTQ students at Hogwarts fairly regularly, answering a since-deleted tweet from a fan yesterday with aplomb.

  7. New Matt Smith Casting Info for Terminator: Genisys and Harry Potter Spinoff

    Because Benedict Cumberbatch has been ahead in the race for FAR TOO LONG!

    Matt Smith is an amazing actor, and was often the thing that saved Doctor Who when the writing went a bit off the rails in Series 6. So, it's a bit of a shame that, because he played such an iconic role, his career might not have had quite the same trajectory as another similar-looking, tall, odd-faced yet inexplicably sexy Brit, Benedict Cumberbatch who, despite playing Sherlock Holmes, has not lacked for work or acclaim. Well, now it's Matt Smith's turn, dammit!

  9. Things We Saw Today: A Harry Potter Cast Reunion Between Draco & Some Weasleys

    It pains me for obvious book reasons that there is only one Weasley twin present here, but Tom Felton hanging out with Rupert Grint, Bonnie Wright, and James Phelps might be enough to stifle my never-ending Fred mourning. That James is the one who played Fred is only confusing matters for my heart.

Issue 5 is out today, so we sat down with writers Brenden Fletcher and Becky Cloonan as well as artist Karl Kerschl to talk about our favorite boarding school badasses.

That is also the story of Harry Potter. From the very beginning of the series we learn about the terrible loss, depression, and trauma that Harry and later, his friends, endure.
