By the time Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters this December, it will have graced the cover of every major magazine in the world. Following cover stories in Vanity Fair and Entertainment Weekly, the highly anticipated sequel to the world’s most popular movie trilogy has landed on the cover of Empire. Heh. Empire. Because, you know, Star Wars. Insert your own joke there. And, like any magazine issue that fancies itself a collector’s item, Empire’s 2015 Winter Preview issue will have two covers – one for the heroes and one for the villains.

When an Entertainment Weekly cover revealed our first look at Oscar Isaac as the titular villain in X-Men: Apocalypse, most fans were not impressed, drawing comparisons to cheesy Power Rangers villain Ivan Ooze. But, director Bryan Singer is back to defend the costume, saying it’s actually “very similar” to the comic book design, and has shared some new hi-res X-Men: Apocalypse photos at the same time.

Oscar Isaac? Is that you? Yes, apparently it is. Isaac plays the title villain in the upcoming X-Men sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse. The character, an immortal mutant from ancient Egypt, is typically portrayed with an extremely elaborate harness, weird wire lips, and crazy blue and chalk-white skin. You had to wonder if director Bryan Singer would go another direction with Apocalypse to make Isaac more recognizable to viewers.

The only unfortunate thing about Show Me a Hero is the realization that David Simon’s latest HBO enterprise is a limited series. Simon, who also created The Wire (aka the best television series of all time), returns to the network with Show Me a Hero, starring Oscar Isaac as a mayor struggling to do the right thing in a city that doesn’t want to let him. Oh, and he also has a real great mustache.

Last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel has already gone down as one of the biggest triumphs in Comic-Con history. While there wasn’t a new trailer or new footage, there was something special in the air. The enthusiasm of the cast, old and new, was palpable. A behind-the-scenes featurette moved the audience to tears. Even grumpy ol’ Harrison Ford bothered to show up and he…actually smiled? A lot? And yes, there is video evidence of this phenomenon because the whole hour-long panel has made its way online (and it’s all nice and official, too).
