Kylie Jenner Revealed That She’s Thinking About Having More Kids

Kylie Jenner took to Snapchat on Saturday night with her BFF Jordyn Woods to benevolently answer a few fan questions—one of which, unsurprisingly enough, was if she was thinking about having more kids, and if so, when? Jenner’s been mom to Stormi Webster, whom she had with boyfriend Travis Scott, since early February. And after eight months of being a new mom, it seems like Jenner is taking to family life: During Scott’s SNL performance on Saturday night, she posted an Instagram Story that zooms into Scott performing on stage, and she captioned the whole shebang with the words “hubby” and three heart-eye emojis. What does this mean? We have no answers at this time, but feel free to scan the video below (sans sound, unfortunately) for evidence before we get back to the baby thing.

Ok, back to Jenner’s broody musings: After the fan asked if Jenner was thinking about having more kids, she answered in the affirmative—with a catch.

“I want another baby but when is the question and I’m definitely not ready right this second. And I don’t know when I will be,” she said. “But yeah when I do I would love to share more of that with you guys.”

The conversation between Jenner and her fans continued AMA-style, with another follower asking her what she was planning on naming the aforementioned potential offspring.

“I have [been thinking about names] but I haven’t found anything that I love love,” she said. “But I definitely want another girl, hopefully, but I want her to have a feminine name.”

Another fan asked her who Stormi reminds her most of out of all of her family members. “I think that her personality is just like Kendall and her dad, she is just like her dad, but she does look like me, so,” she said.

Well, it’s safe to say that whenever Kylie’s ready, the Internet will be there.

Doctor Who’s Season Premiere Featured One Line We’re Obsessing Over

Warning! The following contains spoilers for the Doctor Who Season 11 premiere “The Woman Who Fell To Earth.” Read at your own risk!

The first episode of Doctor Who Season 11 is in the books, and the world finally got a chance to witness the Doctor’s first television adventure as a woman. We make that whole “first television adventure” distinction because Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor said something very peculiar while getting her new wardrobe in order, and it has us quite shook. The Doctor said it’s “been a long time” since she’s bought women’s clothes, but what was she referring to, and what does that mean, if anything, for the franchise going forward?

True, there are lots of reasons why the Doctor could have purchased women’s clothes in the past, but the most interesting and arguably shocking reason would be that the Doctor has been a woman before. That’s right, new showrunner Chris Chibnall may not have only revealed the first on-screen female Doctor, he might’ve also revealed that Jodie Whittaker’s Time Lord isn’t technically the only time femininity has been guiding things. If true, that’s a huge revelation that rocks the Doctor Who lore, and would naturally explain why it has been a “long time” since the Doctor has purchased women’s clothes.

Provided the statement is true, this opens up the possibility for Doctor Who to introduce one or more female Doctors who possibly came before William Hartnell’s run, which would also assume true theories about the Doctor having previously found ways around the twelve-regeneration rule. Or, alternately, that there was a point during one of the previous eleven Time Lords’ cycles that some form of sci-fi magic temporarily changed a Doctor’s gender. There are probably other ways to introduce the concept, too.

For the show, it sounds like a perfect way to bring in a high-profile female actress to play a former female Doctor for a one-off episode down the road, similar to what John Hurt’s Doctor did. One thing that doesn’t seem possible at the moment is for any female Doctors to have had any full cycles occurring between any of the presently known reincarnations of the Doctor. Especially given Whittaker’s estimation of it being a “long time” between such clothing purchases.

Unfortunately, Jodie Whittaker didn’t follow up that line with a wink to the camera and a promise we’d understand later on in Doctor Who Season 11. This may be one of those statements that gets debated and theorized upon by fans for years until the Doctor Who team finally decides to stop torturing everyone by explaining it during a later season. Until a genuine reason arrives, though, we can’t really get too invested, as not to form theories that are potentially far more exciting or game-changing than anything we’ll ever see on the show.

After all, the Doctor only stated that it’s been a long time since she’s bought women’s clothes, not that she’d ever worn them. The Doctor has provided outfits for female companions in the past, so it’s not crazy to think she’s referring to clothes bought for any one of them.

At the same time, if a female Doctor existed long before that stretch of male Doctors, wouldn’t it make sense for the TARDIS to have a healthy wardrobe of women’s clothes around there somewhere? Let’s also remember the Doctor is a an alien seemingly unbothered by traditional gender norms, so wearing women’s clothes despite physically looking like a man wouldn’t be a strange thing to happen. Ah, the joy of Doctor Who theories, how we’ve missed you!

Season 11 of Doctor Who is just getting started, and American fans can catch all-new episodes on BBC America every Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. ET. For a look at what else is coming to television over the next couple months, be sure to visit our fall premiere guide.

Fortnite Will Let Creators Earn Real Money

For starters, to be considered an eligible creator, you need to have created Fortnite content within the past month. Their definition of creator is pretty broad so, if you’re behind something that’s dedicated to the super-popular battle royale game, you might want to try applying. Examples of creators include streamers, artists, cosplayers, musicians and even folks who run dedicated Fortnite communities. On top of that, you need at least 1,000 followers on a major social media platform like Twitch or Twitter, and you have to have a means to actually receive payment from Epic.

The Walking Dead Game Will Be Finished After Telltale And Skybound Struck A Deal

The sudden closure of Telltale Games left the fate of The Walking Dead game’s final season in question, but according to a recent announcement, the folks at Skybound Games will be taking over the project. There are only two chapters left to finish in the series, so hopefully fans can get the closure they’ve been seeking for series protagonist, Clementine. Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman said as much over the weekend at New York Comic-Con, with CinemaBlend’s Mike Reyes there to get the details. In Kirkman’s words:

For those unfamiliar with the Walking Dead television show by the same name, Andrew Lincoln plays the character at the center of its universe, Rick Grimes. Lincoln announced that this will be his last season on the show, though it is still vaguely unclear at this point if his character will meet an unfortunate fate or get to ride off into the sunset.

Similarly, this current season of The Walking Dead game was already set to be the last, bringing an end to Clementine’s story. She started off as a child in the games, someone who needed to be protected while also being taught how to survive in a world gone mad. Over the seasons, she’s grown into a strong and confident character who protects others she cares about.

When Telltale closed at the end of September, the studio laid off around 275 members of its staff. The second of the four-chapter final season of The Walking Dead dropped just a couple of days later but, at the time, it was unclear if the final two chapters would ever see the light of day. There were a heck of a lot of suddenly jobless employees to think about, too, who’d been fired from the studio without warning. A lawsuit has already been filed, claiming Telltale broke state and federal laws pertaining to notice when it comes to any mass layoff within a company of its size.

The studio’s other projects, including a second season of The Wolf Among us and a first season of Stranger Things, were outright cancelled as Telltale projects, with Netflix looking into getting the horror series’ game going elsewhere. A skeleton crew was kept on to finish work on Minecraft: Story Mode for Netflix, though some of those employees are also being let go.

In that regard, Kirkman’s statement is kind of bittersweet for many fans of the series. Knowing that the series will see some resolution for its fictional characters is a positive, but that doesn’t offer much solace when it comes to nearly 300 people losing their job. The buzz around the internet is that Skybound may be looking to bring on some members of the former Telltale team to wrap the project, but nothing has been confirmed involving staffing, or the launch timing for the final episodes of the game, at this time.

It sounds like Telltale is basically having to hand over all of their work for Skybound to pick up and run with, but again, nothing definite has been announced. Kirkman said more details will be provided at a later date. You can currently play The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 2 on all the available platforms.

Venom Box Office: October Has A New Opening Weekend Champion

The appetite for superhero movies is very real among today’s average theater-goer, and one need not look for further proof beyond this weekend’s box office performance by Ruben Fleischer’s Venom.

October has never been a month known for blockbuster releases, but Venom has proven that the right content can definitely sell tickets. Previously it was Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity that held the opening weekend record for the 31 day stretch, making $55.8 million in its first three days back in 2013, but the new release from Sony has clearly shattered that ceiling. And when you add in the $125.2 million that it has already made overseas, the comic book feature has already made more than double its reported $100 million budget.

This, however, is definitely a film where there are some major questions about the length and strength of its upcoming box office run. There is clearly no denying that there were a lot of people out there excited to see Venom, but it’s common to see major second week drops in similar circumstances – which is to say with movies that aren’t carrying a crazy amount of positive critical buzz. A good recent example is Corin Hardy’s The Nun, which had the second best September opening of all time last month, but also dropped a stunning 66 percent in its second week. Those who were super excited to see Venom probably all saw it between Thursday and now, and as a result there’s a good likelihood that its performance from October 12-14 won’t be nearly as impressive.

Even beyond, Venom, though, this was also a fantastic weekend for Hollywood thanks to the release of Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born. While it didn’t exactly have the biggest October opening of all time, it can actually proudly say that it had the 10th biggest October opening of all time. Unlike Venom, the musical drama has been riding high on positivity ever since it made its Toronto International Film Festival debut last month – with both Cooper and star Lady Gaga earning rave reviews – and people bought a lot of tickets to see their work. There’s been a lot of talk about this one being in the race for this year’s Best Picture award at the Academy Awards, so expect to hear a lot more about it in the coming weeks and months – including in this feature.

This week readers should also take note of the impressive continuing performance of Jon Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians, which has been hanging around on the chart since mid-August. Sure, it’s now fallen to ninth place, and this weekend’s new releases should bump it out of the Top 10, but a hat tip is deserved. It spent three of its eight weeks of release so far as box office king, and has grossed nearly $226 million globally on just a $30 million budget (after also having received a great response from both critics and audiences). It’s unquestionably one of 2018’s biggest success stories, which is saying a lot when you consider how big the year has been so far.

Next weekend’s crop of new titles offers up content for all audiences out there, with the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man, the kid-centric horror Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, and the star-studded thriller Bad Times At The El Royale all hitting theaters in wide release. They should do a nice job shaking things up, so be sure to come back next week to see the refreshed Top 10.

Venom Almost Had A Completely Different Opening Scene

Needless to say, this is going to be loaded with spoilers for Venom, so stop reading now if you do not want to know what happens in the film.

Movies evolve, particularly in the screenwriting process. Ideas are raised, and subsequently tossed out, as the creative minds try and decipher what’s best for a movie. Those who saw Venom this weekend (and it was a LOT of you) know that the movie opens in outer space, where a craft commissioned by the Life Foundation is returning to Earth, with some symbiotes in tow. There’s a lot of talk about Venom’s home world in the movie, so when we sat down with the Venom team, we asked them if there ever was a version of the movie where we saw Venom’s home planet of Klyntar, director Ruben Fleischer explained:

It’s definitely something that can be saved for subsequent stories, perhaps as Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) explores the origin of this new alien that has possessed him. A lot of Venom deals with Eddie just reacting to the arrival of the symbiote. Perhaps, in Venom 2, Brock will want to know more about where Venom came from, particularly as he tries to figure out a way to defeat Carnage (Woody Harrelson). Because you KNOW that’s coming.

This much is hinted at by Venom producer Matt Tolmach, who also told CinemaBlend:

So, at one point, Team Venom thought about going to Klyntar, but it never came to be. Audiences didn’t seem to mind. Venom broke records as opened to a massive number, and we personally believe the opening number is big enough to warrant a sequel. Tom Hardy’s back, and Woody Harrelson will be with him. What about Michelle Williams? Or any new characters? Time will tell.

Melania Trump Says She ‘Doesn’t Always Agree’ With Her Husband

Melania Trump said in an exchange with reporters that she doesn’t always agree with everything her husband, President Donald Trump, says and does. And

While wrapping up her first international tour as First Lady, Melania answered questions from reporters while sitting outside the pyramids in Giza, Egypt. Some wanted to know just what kind of influence she really has over her husband.

“Some people interpret some of the decisions you’ve made, such as coming to Africa and some of your tweets, as a way of sort of not necessarily undermining but talking at him a little bit, trying to influence him. Can you talk about that?” one reporter asked.

“Well, I don’t always agree [with] what he thinks, and I tell him that. I give him my honest opinion and honest advice,” she said adding that “sometimes he listens, sometimes he doesn’t.”

However, she also wanted to make it clear that she has her “own voice and my own opinions and it’s very important for me that I express what I feel.” In the end, she noted, he’s the President and does what he likes.

A reporter then asked if she ever asked her husband to “put down his phone.” She quickly replied “yes,” which elicited laughter from both the First Lady and the reporters on hand.

As well as explaining how her relationship with her husband works, Melania also let her feelings be known about the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

“What I will say, if we’re talking about the Supreme Court and Judge Kavanaugh, I think he’s highly qualified for the Supreme Court,” she said. “I’m glad that Dr. Ford was heard; I’m glad that Judge Kavanaugh was heard. The FBI investigation was done, it’s completed, and [the] Senate voted.”

When pressed on if she believed Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Melania remained evasive, but added, “I think all the victims—we need to help all the victims, no matter what kind of abuse they had, but I am against any kind of abuse or violence.”

Her trip was also not without fashion controversies. While visiting the Sheldrick Wildlife Elephant Project in Kenya, the first lady topped her outfit with a white pith helmet. The helmet has long been associated with colonial rule, particularly in Africa, and are a symbol of oppression.

When asked about the fashion choice, Melania simply replied, “That’s very important what I do, what we’re doing with USAID and what I do with my initiatives, and I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear.”

Scott Wilson Did Finish His Walking Dead Season 9 Scenes Before He Passed Away

The Walking Dead Season 9 was already going to be an emotional journey, given it comprises Andrew Lincoln’s final scenes as Rick Grimes. But it will also showcase what is potentially the final TV appearance of late actor Scott Wilson, who passed away this weekend at age 76. Thankfully, though, it has been confirmed that Wilson’s Walking Dead return was completed before he died.

The timing of events here couldn’t be more unfortunate, even with such a largely positive silver lining. This weekend, it was revealed by new Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang that Scott Wilson’s Hershel Greene would be making a surprise return to that universe for Season 9, presumably in a flashback or dream sequence. He’ll be joined by Star Trek: Discovery‘s Sonequa Martin Green as Sasha and the previously reported Jon Bernthal as Shane. (And possibly by Corey Hawkins as Heath, if that situation can be figured out.)

Scott Wilson’s death, which resulted in complications from leukemia, had many fans wondering if his Walking Dead return would be even more abbreviated than what would would already expect from a cameo taking place four seasons after the character’s death. But Hershel fanatics need not worry too much about sharing these final moments with Wilson’s live-action patriarch, for they’ll be seen in the episode in full, as confirmed by ComicBook.com.

It’s also been confirmed that Hershel will be appearing in the first half of The Walking Dead Season 9, which means Scott Wilson likely filmed his scene(s) quite a few months back when production was going heavy on those episodes. He was hopefully feeling healthier and in good spirits at the time, unaware that his time would run out before the episode ever got to air. One would also wish that the actor was pleased with his performance and happy to be back on the set among some of his former co-stars. (Though there aren’t very many left at this point.)

Season 9 will be going deeper into character development, as opposed to constant action and stress, which makes Hershel’ return more timely than if it had happened in the middle of the All Out War. One assumption is that his arrival is meant to give Rick some peace of mind, either about his own impending death or about his legacy as a father.

The other assumption is, of course, that Hershel will be there to provide mental support to his daughter Maggie during this time of her life, and before Lauren Cohan takes her own Walking Dead hiatus. Maggie managed to rise to the top as the leader with Hilltop, even if she’s not overwhelmingly happy about what had to happen to get her there. We all know that being a leader means wearing a giant target, so Maggie will face some of her biggest problems in Season 9. And nothing helps during a time of turmoil quite like the lovingly blunt advice that only a parent can provide. Even if that parent isn’t physically around anymore.

With many new characters joining the returning vets, get ready for the final Hershel Greene scene when The Walking Dead Season 9 hits AMC on Sunday, October 7, at 9:00 p.m. ET. To see what other new and returning shows are coming to TV soon, head to our fall TV premiere schedule.

Keira Knightley Criticizes the Expectations Set on Kate Middleton After Giving Birth

Keira Knightley is taking society’s expectations for women’s bodies before, during, and immediately after pregnancy—and that includes some thoughts on the expectations set on Kate Middleton to appear for photographs hours after giving birth.

In a powerful essay that appears in the new collection Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (And Other Lies), Knightley contributed a piece titled “The Weaker Sex,” which she dedicated to her daughter. In it, the actress recounts her daughter Edie’ birth story in intimate detail in an effort to combat the unrealistic expectations set on women to be perfect moments after bringing life into the world.

Refinery29 published excerpts from Knightley’s essay, which begins:

“My vagina split. You came out with your eyes open. Arms up in the air. Screaming. They put you on to me, covered in blood, vernix, yourhead misshapen from the birth canal. Pulsating, gasping, screaming.You latched on to my breast immediately, hungrily, I remember thepain. The mouth clenched tight around my nipple, light sucking on andsucking out. I remember the s—, the vomit, the blood, the stitches. Iremember my battleground. Your battleground and life pulsating.Surviving. And I am the weaker sex?”

Knightley then explained that Edie’s birth came just one day before Middleton gave birth to her second child, Princess Charlotte. The pictures and videos showing the Duchess smiling and holding Charlotte on the hospital steps came in stark contrast to what Knightley herself was experiencing after giving birth.

“We stand and watch the TV screen. She was out of hospital seven hours later with her face made up and high heels on. The face the world wants to see. Hide. Hide our pain, our bodies splitting, our breasts leaking, our hormones raging,” she wrote. “Look beautiful, look stylish, don’t show your battleground, Kate. Seven hours after your fight with life and death, seven hours after your body breaks open, and bloody, screaming life comes out. Don’t show. Don’t tell. Stand there with your girl and be shot by a pack of male photographers.”

If Kate felt well enough to stand out there for photos after giving birth (and, more importantly, wanted to), that’s absolutely fine. She’s done it three times now, and Diana did it too—making it something of a royal tradition. But it’s not the reality of what the hours after birth are like for many women, who took to social media after the birth of Prince Louis this year to share photos of themselves exhausted and worn out after labor—a stark contrast to what the cameras pointing at Middleton saw through their lenses.

Though the essay does mention Middleton by name, Knightley’s focus is squarely on the pressures put upon women (royals and non-royals alike)—pressures she says men rarely experience. And that includes on the job:

“I turn up on time, word perfect, with ideas and an opinion. I am up with you [her daughter] all night if you need me. Sometimes I cry I’m so tired. Up with you all night and work all day… My male colleagues can be late, can not know their lines. They can shout and scream and throw things. They can turn up drunk or not turn up at all. They don’t see their children. They’re working. They need to concentrate.”

Instead, she wrote women must “be pretty. Stand there… Be nice, be supportive, be pretty but not too pretty, be thin but not too thin, be sexy but not too sexy. Be successful but not too successful. Wear these clothes, look this way, buy this stuff.”

She closed by noting, “I work with men, and they worry that I don’t like them. It makes them mad, it makes them sad, it makes them shout and scream. I like them. But I don’t want to flirt and mother them… I don’t want to flirt with you because I don’t want to fuck you, and I don’t want to mother you because I am not your mother.”

The entire essay can be found in Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (And Other Lies), which is available now.

Gotham Is Changing Up Bane’s Comic Book Story In Big Ways

When Gotham gets its mitts on heroes and villains originating from the comic books, the writers are guaranteed to twist the characters’ stories up to keep viewers on their toes. The same will hold true for the highly anticipated debut of the iconic baddie Bane, who was finally confirmed to be portrayed by ER vet Shane West. Bane’s story won’t be quite as familiar as comic fans are ready for, so let’s look at what’s changing.

When Shane West is first seen on the streets of Gotham City in the time-jumped aftermath of the No Man’s Land bombings — or seen in the sewers or seen blowing up an office building or whatever he’s up to — fans will be witnessing a villain whose origin story is not what we’re familiar with. Speaking to audiences at New York Comic Con, Gotham executive producer and showrunner John Stephens had this to say:

[West’s character] will appear befodre he became Bane. And we tied it to Jim’s backstory. Clearly it’s different than canon.

Anyone familiar with Bane knows about his particularly disturbing childhood, as laid out in the “Knightfall” arc. His father, Edmund “King Snake” Dorrance, had escaped prison, and it was agreed his young son would be forced to serve the rest of that sentence. He was later used as a test subject for the mysterious drug Venom, which both gave him superhuman strength and also threatened to destroy him. It seems that this will play out a little differently in Gotham‘s live-action universe, however.

If Bane’s existence and/or his rise to super-villainy can be tied back to Jim Gordon, then what’s the implication there? Was Jim responsible for a life-changing arrest? Did Jim have anything to do with the creation of any mysterious drugs that turn people into veiny-muscled monsters? Because this is Gotham, I probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Bane’s original last name was “Gordon” or “Wayne” or something.

Beyond his imprisoned early days, Bane is one of the most intimidating and memorable comic book villains for doing what must have seemed impossible to Gotham City’s underworld denizens: he broke Batman. More specifically, he broke Batman’s back across his knee in a magnificently devastating sequence.

For Gotham, though, it won’t be the costumed billionaire that will face such crippling injuries. Instead, it will be another of Bruce’s loved ones who gets attacked. Sean Pertwee, who portrayed the dutiful and highly skilled Alfred Pennyworth, admitted to the NYCC crowd that his beloved butler will be the one on the receiving end of Bane’s violent actions. In his words:

We have an altercation. I get my back broken.

Doesn’t need to be more complicated than that to make for quite the shocking and character-altering twist. Granted, it might have been morally sketchy to show Bane breaking the back of teenaged David Mazouz on television, even if the sequence was edited to remove the most visually disturbing bits. But we’ve seen Alfred jump into the shit before to keep Bruce safe, even when Bruce was being a Ra’s-influenced douchebag, so there’s no one better equipped, mentally or physically, to take on one of Batman’s harshest injuries from the source material.

Despite this new information we have to chew on, not to mention all the other wacky updates we’ve heard, Gotham still doesn’t have a premiere date set for Season 5, which will arrive on Fox at some point in early 2019, after Bruce’s new Batcave has been completed. To see what other new and returning shows will be debuting soon, head to our fall premiere schedule.
