The FCC has voted to begin drafting a new rule that would require broadband and cable companies to be more transparent about hidden fees, data caps, and other restrictions that often remain undisclosed or difficult to understand.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Will Be Last For James Gunn

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be the last outing for James Gunn and the current cast, the director confirmed in an interview with Deadline this week.

"This is the end for us, the last time people will see this team of Guardians," Gunn said on Deadline's Hero Nation podcast. "It's big; it's so big and dark, and different from what people might be expecting it to be," Gunn said (he said almost exactly the same thing about The Suicide Squad, interestingly).

Mortal Kombat 12 Possibly Leaked (Or Intentionally Teased) By NetherRealm Producer

In the age of internet sleuths and fervid fans, it's a risk to leave files up on your screen when snapping a social media pic--hence why people are speculating that NetherRealm's producer Jonathan Andersen intentionally "leaked" the existence of Mortal Kombat 12 through a now-deleted photo on Twitter.

The photo was of his desk and various Mortal Kombat memorabilia, but eagle-eyed MK fans spotted a file name on his monitor titled "MK12_Mast…" To add more fire to the speculation, the snippet...

The Last Of Us Show Should Learn From Station Eleven: The End Of The World Isn't All Murders

The world ends in Station Eleven in a way that feels a little too intensely realistic. A mutated influenza virus suddenly spreads across the world. Asymptomatic carriers bring the disease to healthy people, and once it takes hold, the death toll is catastrophic. Within days, most of the population of the world is dead, infrastructure begins to crumble, and isolated pockets of people are left trapped, desperately figuring out how to go on.

Then the show leaps forward 20 years to focus on a...
