NETFLIX is planning to allow users to choose the endings for movies or episodes of popular TV shows like Black Mirror as it pushes further into interactive TV, according to a report. The streaming giant is developing specials that will let its users decide the next storyline, Bloomberg reported Monday (paywall), citing people familiar with the matter. Netflix had earlier released the animated program Puss in Book where viewers could choose whether the feisty feline fights a god or a tree. After watching one version, kids can go back and watch the other. The first project of the new lineup is expected to be released by the end of this year, with an episode of Netflix’s popular sci-fi show Black Mirror. The stories that branch off from the main narrative of “Black Mirror” will be more complicated than the options in the kids’ programming, according to Bloomberg.

Brian Truitt USA TODAY Published 6:03 p.m. UTC Jul 21, 2018 Look out, Tom Holland. Tom Hardy’s looking for a fight. Hardy gave the crowd a good look at his alien-powered title antihero in "Venom" (in theaters Oct. 5) during a Sony Pictures panel at Comic-Con. And because Spider-Man and Venom are famous foes from comic books, the subject arose of whether Hardy is ready to tussle with Holland’s Marvel Cinematic Universe web-slinger.

New footage that debuted at Comic-Con showed how a genius billionaire named Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) looks to space to save humanity and melds alien symbiotes with human beings to create a higher life form. One of these symbiotes gets attached to down-on-his-luck investigative journalist Eddie Brock … [Read more...] about Comic-Con: Tom Hardy’s dark and gritty ‘Venom’ promises a film with ‘no heroes’
