The Ed Zone

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - The Ed Zone -

Back in the noughties, Pixar went on the sort of golden run that other stu­dios could only dream of. Mon­sters, Inc, Finding Nemo, The In­cred­i­bles, Rata­touille, WALL-E, Up… Ev­ery one in­no­va­tive, ev­ery one an in­stant clas­sic.

Th­ese days Pixar’s Dis­ney sta­ble­mate Marvel is on a sim­i­larly hot run of form. Okay, there have been a cou­ple of mis­fires (the de­cid­edly av­er­age Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Age Of Ul­tron spring to mind), but oth­er­wise the house that Tony Stark built has evolved into a re­mark­able block­buster ma­chine.

So with the bril­liant Cap­tain Amer­ica: Civil War now in cine­mas (read our five-star re­view on p92), we thought it was a good time to look ahead to what’s com­ing next from the MCU. We tell you ev­ery­thing you need to know about Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch’s ar­rival as the Sorcerer Supreme, Doc­tor Strange (p44), and run down all the other Marvel movies and TV shows head­ing your way.

Plus, we don’t know what pos­sessed us, but we’ve de­cided to go be­hind the scenes of three spooky ex­or­cism-themed dra­mas: The Con­jur­ing 2 (p68), Out­cast (p72) and The Liv­ing And The Dead (p76). We don’t think there are any ac­tual demons lurk­ing in the pages of the mag, but if one of them pops out and tells you to sub­scribe, it’s prob­a­bly best to lis­ten – you can find out how on p36.
