When J.K. Rowling told fans Dumbledore was gay in 2007 fans were shocked. The Fantastic Beasts series’ inclusion of a younger version of the character opened up the opportunity to show fans what a young Dumbledore was like. In The Crimes in Grindelwald, fans will see young Dumbledore, played by Jude Law, but they will not get a glimpse of his life as a gay man.

Fans looking forward to seeing that in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts film should prepare themselves to be disappointed.

On Wednesday, David Yates, the director of The Crimes of Grindelwald, said Dumbledore’s sexuality will not be referenced. “Not explicitly. But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other’s ideas, and ideology and each other,” Yates said to EW.

Given that Johnny Depp will be reprising his role of Gellert Grindelwald the choice to apparently not include their romance seems odd and incredibly unfortunate.

Fans have had a very strong reaction to Yates’ statement. Knowing it happened, but not seeing it is not enough and people have been very vocal on Twitter.

Yates did provide some more information about the characters in the new film calling Dumbledore and Grindelwald “an incredible paring.”

All hope is not lost though because Rowling has send there’s a lot of story in the film series, which will span five films, which will explore Dumbledore’s younger years.

“I can’t tell you everything I would like to say because this is obviously a five-part story so there’s lots to unpack in that relationship. You will see Dumbledore as a younger man and quite a troubled man — he wasn’t always the sage…We’ll see him at that formative period of his life. As far as his sexuality is concerned … watch this space,” she said two years ago at a press conference.

The Crimes of Grindlewald will premiere on November 16, 2018.

We’re all in the Long Night while waiting on Game of Thrones Season 8. Now, possibly out of desperation, one fan has cooked up a horribly tragic theory about how Jon Snow will have to become the Night King to stop his undead army. If true, this would reshape everything we know about the Night King, Azor Ahai, and how the series will end.

Stranger Things Season 3 is set to release some time next summer. That’s a long time to wait before we can finally head back to 1980s Hawkins, Indiana, but in the meantime, a new interview with David Harbour (Jim Hopper on the Netflix series) is offering fans a taste of what’s to come when the Stranger Things Season 3 release date finally arrives.

This is some multi-reality brain magic shit.” Emma Stone’s words in the new trailer for Maniac, an upcoming Netflix original series, seem to do a pretty good job of encapsulating the plot. Created by Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers), directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (It, True Detective Season 1), and starring Stone, Jonah Hill, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux, Maniac looks like a cross between Inception and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In other words, it looks awesome.

The upcoming live-action Star Wars show will cost a whole bunch of Credits — or perhaps a whole bunch of Gold Dragons. The reported budget for Jon Favreau’s 10-episode series is $100 million, or about $10 million per episode. That puts the show on par with Game of Thrones, HBO’s tremendously expensive (and popular) fantasy series.

It’s almost time for back to school — Huntress school, that is. At RTX 2018, Rooster Teeth Animation announced the release date of the next season of the studio’s crown jewel, western anime RWBY.

RWBY Volume 6 will premiere October 27. And in an interview with Inverse, series star Lindsay Jones (the voice of Ruby Rose) reveals that Volume 6 will see the reunion of Team RWBY. The story will also build upon the significant growth of the characters from Volumes 4 and 5.
