The Most Compatible Game Of Thrones Characters, Based On Their MBTI®

HBO’s wildly successful and beloved fantasy drama series Game of Thrones may be best known for its incorporation of dragons, direwolves, and epic battle scenes, as well as the high caliber acting turned in from its cast of main and supporting characters. But another clear highlight of the series has always been its depiction of passionate relationships between people who love each other, despite the odds they face and the world crumbling around them.

In recent years, Myers-Briggs® Personality Types have become all the rage on the internet and in fandoms in particular. Finding characters that you can relate to and share your personality type with is often a vindicating feeling for people, as it helps them make sense of why they root for certain characters – especially in such a highly volatile, conflict-driven series like Game of Thrones.

But what some people may not know is that, once a personality type is assigned, the story doesn’t stop there. Certain personality types are romantically compatible with other types, and only those other types. So after typing all your favorite Thrones characters, we checked their romantic compatibility with other characters – and the results may shock you.

10 Shae (ESFJ) and Jaime Lannister (ESTP)

The character of Shae, as portrayed by Sibel Kekilli, is perhaps one of the most misunderstood and most tragically fated in the entire series. After falling in love with Tyrion Lannister, Shae – an ESFJ personality, known as The Provider or The Consul – would wind up feeling betrayed by Tyrion, and in turn betray him, breaking his heart and leading to her own death.

As it turns out, Shae’s story could have possibly had a much different ending, if only she’d chosen a different Lannister brother. Jaime Lannister, whose MBTI type is ESTP – The Entrepreneur – is perfectly romantically compatible with Shae’s type. As individuals who are both looked down upon because of their good looks, with tragic histories and plenty of blemishes on their record, it’s not unlikely that these two could have hit it off well, in another lifetime.

9 Ygritte (ESFJ) and Jon Snow (ISFP)

Sorry, Jon and Dany fans: there’s only one woman that Jon Snow is perfectly romantically suited for, and it’s none other than his true love, Ygritte. Jon Snow is, in effect, the very prototype of an ISFP: kind, adventure seeking, deceptively quiet, and passionate. As an ESFJ, Ygritte is, in many ways, everything that Jon is not: loud, hyper social, well liked in most places.

From the very beginning, Jon and Ygritte work so well because they’re so different. What starts as a love hate relationship soon blossoms into a true love story, even if Ygritte thinks that Jon Snow knows nothing. While they could never fully make it work due to their loyalties being on opposing sides of the Wildlings vs. Wall divide, the forbidden nature of their tragically fated romance just makes their fundamental compatibility all the more poignant.

8 Ned Stark (ISTJ) and Catelyn Stark (ISFJ)

Speaking of couples that were tragically fated and definitely deserved a lot better, perhaps one of the most welcome surprises is that Ned Stark and Catelyn Stark are perfectly compatible with one another. As an ISTJ, Ned is about as old fashioned and honor bound as they go. He is strict and driven and true, ruled by the commitment to the moral good and the logically sound.

As an ISFJ, Catelyn is a true protector, driven by her emotions and her need to defend what belongs to her and her family alone. The difference in Ned’s and Cat’s approaches to the world occasionally leads them to conflict, in the few key scenes they share together. But it also makes them a powerful team, wielding both head and heart, and always acting in the best interest of those they love.

7 Petyr Baelish (ISTP) and Sansa Stark (ISFP)

One of the more controversial elements of Game of Thrones, despite being even more explicit in the A Song of Ice and Fire books, is the suggestion of a romantic connection between Littlefinger, Lord Petyr Baelish, and the impressionable young Sansa Stark. So it may come as a real shock, then, to learn that these two are entirely romantically compatible, if the MBTI is to be believed.

Petyr is a true ISTP, a master of mystery and deception whose interests and intentions are very seldom publicly known. As an ISFP, Sansa enjoys a different world of illusions all her own, relishing in sensory and surprisingly social pleasures. These two may seem like they couldn’t be more different from one another, but sharing so many key MBTI traits make them perfectly suited for each other – no matter how appearances might seem.

6 Cersei Lannister (ENTJ) and Tyrion Lannister (ENTP)

Arguably one of the most infamous aspects of Game of Thrones is the incestuous – dare we even say twincestuous – relationship between spoiled twin siblings Cersei and Jaime Lannister. As disgusting albeit significant as their dynamic may be, Jaime and Cersei’s relationship is, as it turns out, not one that is described as romantically compatible, according to MBTI types.

RELATED: Game Of Thrones Theory: The Final Battle Is Against Cersei, Not The Night King

Even more hilariously, and uncomfortably, Cersei is indeed romantically compatible with a Lannister. It just so happens to be the younger brother whose very being she despises. The cold, commandeering, decisive ENTJ in Cersei is entirely compatible with Tyrion’s troublemaking, intellectually driven ENTP. The duo certainly engage in quite dramatic back and forths, so the potential for that sort of interpretation is certainly there – whether George RR Martin intended or not.

5 Brienne (ISFJ) and Davos Seaworth (ISFP)

If there are two people in all of Game of Thrones who deserve happy endings filled with love and support after all they have been through and all they have lost, Brienne of Tarth and Ser Davos Seaworth may just be those two people – or, at the very least, contenders for such a distinction. Having loved and lost and been rebuffed by multiple people, the sensitive but fiercely protective ISFJ in Brienne of Tarth deserves someone strong and supportive and loving.

And after enduring the loss of his own son, as well as girl he adored more than anything in Shireen Baratheon, Davos’s introspective, adventurous, hard working ISFP self could certainly benefit from the romantic and emotional support from someone as sturdy as Brienne of Tarth. An off screen wife has been mentioned in Davos’s case, which could preclude this from ever happening. But these two are romantically perfect for each other, at least as far as the MBTI is concerned.

4 Tyrion Lannister (ENTP) and Daenerys Targaryen (ENFJ)

Since joining sides with Daenerys Targaryen after his unceremonious escape and expulsion from King’s Landing, Tyrion Lannister has been fiercely loyal to the queen also known as khaleesi. Peter Dinklage has even discussed the possibility of Tyrion already being in love with Daenerys, and therefore envious of her otherwise directed romantic affections. If the MBTI could have its say, it seems like these two might just be a match made in heaven.

As an ENTP, Tyrion is driven to debate, to question, to wonder and learn and understand. As an ENTJ, Daenerys is a driven leader who likes to think she has all the answers. These two have confided in one another countless times over the years, often as a result of good natured bantering. A romantic upgrade really isn’t that far out of the realm of reason for them.

3 Daenerys Targaryen (ENFJ) and Melisandre (ENFJ)

Melisandre may not be the most trustworthy person in all of the Seven Kingdoms. She’s certainly done plenty of outright dastardly things in her day. But then again, so has Daenerys Targaryen, from a certain point of view. So while it may be initially shocking to learn that both of these fearsome women are typed as ENTJs, it does make some sense upon further reflection.

And it also certainly makes sense that the self-inflated ego of an ENTJ would be drawn to a like-minded partner, preferring a fellow ENTJ over any other potential romantic partner. Almost nothing good could come of this potential partnership, whether romantic or otherwise. But the MBTI doesn’t lie.

2 Gendry Waters (ISTP) and Sansa Stark (ISFP)

From very early on in the series, fans have been excited about the potential of a romance of the fierce little warrior in training Arya Stark and Robert Baratheon’s bastard son, Gendry Waters. But, as it turns out, Arya isn’t the Stark sister that Gendry is romantically compatible with, according to their MBTI types.

RELATED: Game Of Thrones Totally Teased An Arya/Gendry Romance (But Will It Happen?)

As an ISTP, Gendry is a true master of his trade of smithing, as well as a complete enigma. And also as an ISTP, he is drawn romantically toward an ISFP – none other than Sansa Stark, for example. With their totally clashing worlds of roughhousing and genteel femininity, Gendry and Sansa represent yet another incidence of the MBTI favoring opposites attracting. It may not ever work out, realistically, in the series, but it sure is interesting to think about.

1 Varys (INTP) and Tyrion Lannister (ENTP)

Every scene that the bickering duo of Varys and Tyrion Lannister share is all but guaranteed to lead to some hilarious one-liners and witticisms. As two of the smartest and most cunning players in Game of Thrones, Varys and Tyrion have both endured and seen far more than most of the characters in the series have. And, hilariously and fittingly enough, it isn’t really much of a surprise to learn that they would be perfectly suited as a couple.

As an INTP, Varys is a thinker and questioner. As an ENTP, Tyrion is a visionary and debater. With the only trait separating them being their level of introversion and extroversion, these two are truly two sides of the same coin. It’s all but impossible for them to become a couple – for many reasons – but they certainly make quite the fearsome, hilarious duo all the same.ex

10 American Movies You Didn’t Know Were Based Off Of Foreign Films

Remakes can be difficult in the movie business. Sometimes studios think there is an idea too good not to explore again, but audiences can get tired of seeing the same stories done over and over. But what if they are remaking a movie most of the audience has never heard of before?

Hollywood has a tendency to find those golden cinematic gems of other countries and give them an American twist. And while some of these foreign films may have made a splash in the States, there are many the average movie-goer might assume are original ideas. So give some credit to the films that did it first by looking at some of the American films you didn’t know were foreign-language remakes.

RELATED: Ranked: 10 Most Inclusive Films For Kids

10 The Birdcage

The Birdcage was a 1996 star-studded comedy from Hollywood legends Mike Nichols and Elaine May. The film starred Robin Williams, Gene Hackman and Nathan Lane in a wacky caper about an openly gay couple who pretend to be straight when being introduced to their son’s conservative in-laws. The film was a box office hit and was praised for Williams and Lane’s comedic performance.

The film is a remake of an Italian comedy which is actually an adaptation of a stage play of the same name. The original 1978 film was hugely successful, becoming a cross-cultural hit in the States as well.

9 The Departed

Martin Scorsese finally won his long-deserved Oscar for Best Director for this violent gangster film. The movie follows two moles, one working for the police and one working for the mob who play a cat and mouse game, trying to expose the other. The film starred the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg and Jack Nicholson and won the Oscar for Best Picture.

The movie is based on the Chinese police drama, Infernal Affairs. While it did not reach the same level of acclaim as its remake, the original was a huge success and gained fans all over the world.

8 Three Men and a Baby

Three Men and a Baby seems like the perfect 80s movie with a cast of the decade’s biggest stars and a concept that would really only work in that decade of filmmaking. The film follows the misadventures of three bachelors, played by Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson, who unexpectedly have to raise a baby together.

Directed by Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, the film was a huge hit and spawned a sequel, Three Men and a Little Lady. The original French film, Three Men and a Cradle, only came out two years before Hollywood decided to do their version.

7 EdTV

Long before they starred in the dark and somber first season of True Detective, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson starred in this forgettable comedy. McConaughey stars as a video store clerk who is chosen for a reality TV program where cameras follow him all day long. The concept had potential but suffered from the fact that it came out shortly after the similar and superior The Truman Show.

RELATED: 10 Action Movie Legends We Want To See In The Expendables 4

Edtv was in fact a remake of a French-Canadian comedy, Louis 19, King of the Airwaves. The original, while a smaller scale, had more success than the American version, becoming a modest hit in its home country.

6 True Lies

Though not the most well-known of James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s collaborations, True Lies is nonetheless a fun, funny and thrilling action-comedy. Schwarzenegger stars as a world-class spy who hides his secret world-saving antics begin to conflict with his more mundane family life. Though overshadowed by the Terminator films to a degree, the movie was a hit with audiences and critics.

Le Totale was a French comedy that served as the basis for this film. While Cameron crank up the action and scope of the film, the story and some of its best comedic moments came from the original.

5 Delivery Man

Vince Vaughan has been hit-and-miss with his comedy movie career. While his films like Wedding Crashers and Old School are considered classics, others, like this 2013 dramedy, are utterly forgettable. Delivery Man has Vaughan playing an aimless delivery man who learns that his sperm donations over the years have resulted in over 500 children. The film has a difficult time with its shifting tone leading to an uneven and somewhat creepy final product.

The original French-Canadian film called Starbuck was a hit in Canada and generally thought of as the better film. Despite the original writer-director Ken Scott returning to helm the remake, the American remake failed to connect the same way the original did.

4 Scent Of A Woman

As acclaimed an actor as Al Pacino is, it’s strange to think that he’s only won a single Oscar in his long career. Even stranger, that win came from his rather over-the-top performance in this film. In Scent of a Woman, Pacino plays a brash and impulsive blind man who takes a younger man under his wing. The film proved a hit and, along with Pacino’s win, was nominated for several Oscars.

RELATED: 10 Best ’90s Action Movies To Watch Today

The film was a remake of a 1974 Italian film of the same name. Like its eventual remake, the film was a hit in its home country and received high praise the its leading man.

3 Insomnia

Before Christopher Nolan gained the trust of fanboys everywhere with his Dark Knight trilogy, he was making far smaller films, like this 2002 thriller. Al Pacino stars in the film as a Los Angeles detective investigating a murder in a small Alaskan town. Though one of the lesser-known Nolan films, it is nonetheless a stellar thriller featuring a great performance from Pacino as well as a rare villainous turn from Robin Williams.

RELATED: Every Christopher Nolan Movie Ranked, From Worst To Best

The film is based on a 1997 Norwegian film of the same name, starring Stellan Skarsgard in the lead role. Though Nolan’s film is certainly bleak, the original is notable for going even darker with the story.

2 Twelve Monkeys

Twelve Monkeys is one of the most insane and mind-bending time travel films you’re likely to ever see – not surprising as it comes from Terry Gilliam. Set in a post-apocalyptic future, Bruce Willis stars as a prisoner sent back in time to determine what happened to end the world. The film has been praised upon its release and is still considered one of the best films of the 90s.

Though Gilliam is known for his own bizarre ideas, he did in fact get this particular one from a French short film entitled The Jetty. The sci-fi short sets up the same basic plot of Twelve Monkeys as well as provide the remake’s memorable twist ending.

1 Some Like It Hot

Billy Wilder is considered one of the greatest screenwriters in Hollywood history. Therefore, it might surprise some that one of his best films is actually not an original work.

Some Like it Hot is a comedy that follows two struggling lounge singer who, after witnessing a mob assassination, hide out and find unexpected fame as female stage performers. Still considered one of the funniest comedies ever made, the film rightfully earned its classic status. Though based on the German film, Fanfares of Love, Wilder managed to put his own brilliant spin on the material which resulted in a film that will be remembered forever.

Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina: 5 Witch Traditions/Figures Based On Myth (5 That Are Completely Fictional)

Viewers have been spellbound by Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, right from the theme song’s first eerie note. Based on characters from Archie Comics, this Netflix original series is the second TV depiction of the enchanting Sabrina Spellman. The first was the hit ’90s sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It was light and wholesome, giving the audience a cauldron of laughs complete with magical hijinks and talking cat. On the flip side, Sabrina offers a deliciously darker take on its beloved source material.

The show features an array of spooky spells and hair-raising hexes. An innocent girl is cursed with blindness. A sleep demon terrorizes the Spellman family in their dreams. Though many of Sabrina‘s magical elements are invented by the writers, several have roots in real mythology. This adds an air of credibility to the show, though sometimes Sabrina misses the mark entirely. Here is Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: 5 Witch Traditions/Figures Based On Myth (And 5 That Are Completely Fictional).

RELATED: 10 Surprising Differences Between The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Comics And Show

10 Based On Myth: Lupercalia

In Sabrina, Lupercalia is a traditional holiday observed by the Academy of Unseen Arts. It takes place around the same time as the mortal Valentine’s Day, but it’s not lovey-dovey. Sabrina‘s Lupercalia is kicked off by a random coupling of men and women. Once paired, they go off into the woods together to feast and enjoy a night of “unholy abstinence”. Zelda describes it as a “lusty pastoral festival”.

Lupercalia really was an ancient Roman ritual, with the purpose of cleansing the city of evil spirits and promoting fertility and good health among its citizens. Sabrina stays true to many of Lupercalia’s rituals, such as the coupling, and also rubbing blood on each other’s foreheads and wiping it off with milk-soaked wool. However, other aspects of the festival were left out, such as men chasing women with strips of goat hide. If caught, the woman would be whipped with the hide to increase her chance of fertility.

9 Fiction: The Harrowing

The Harrowing is another tradition at the Academy of Unseen Arts. Much less pleasant than Lupercalia, the Harrowing is a magical hazing ritual performed on new students. The purpose is to force students to endure the same torment as the Greendale Thirteen, a group of persecuted witches. The Weird Sisters subject Sabrina to the Harrowing on her first night. Though many do not survive, Sabrina perseveres and is able to turn the ritual against the Weird Sisters. This results in them agreeing to cease this brutal tradition.

Though this barbaric behavior may have been inspired by real-world scandals, the Harrowing has no known roots in mythology.

8 Based On Myth: Yule log

‘Tis the season to be haunted. The Spellman family celebrates Winter Solstice with the traditional burning of the Yule Log. As Zelda instructs, it must be left burning all night to ward off evil spirits. But how boring would that be? Who wants to sit around and watch a log burning? For the sake of evil—and the viewers’ entertainment—Mary Wardwell/Madam Satan extinguishes the log. A gaggle of ghosts is released into the Spellman home.

RELATED: Sabrina’s Christmas Special Is Better Than Fans Are Saying

In reality, the Yule log isn’t just a yummy dessert; it was really a major component in European Christmas festivities. Like the Spellmans, families would burn it throughout the night. However, it wasn’t to protect themselves from demons and ghosts; it was to ward off everyday maladies like the common cold.

7 Fiction: Feast Of Feasts

This Sabrina tradition seems to be more inspired by The Hunger Games than any existing practices, ancient or modern. That’s probably for the better, because the main dish at the Feast of Feasts is a witch. Every family member of the Church of Night must select a representative who is then placed into a lottery. The selected witch becomes Queen, and is treated to three days of pampering by a handmaiden of her choosing. At the end of the three days, the Queen sacrifices herself as dinner for the Feast.

While viewers surely wish they had Sabrina’s powers, this is one element of witch life best left unconsumed.

6 Based On Myth: Gryla And The Yule Lads

A terrible name for a rock band, but riveting additions to the show. In Sabrina-lore, Gryla is a witch who lost her child during a famine. She and another witch made a pact to kill their children for food. Gryla followed through but the other witch did not. Cut to a thousand years later and Gryla is on a mission to find a replacement for her lost son. The Spellmans summon her after the Yule Log incident, with the hopes that Gryla will relieve them of the Yule Lads, a group of prankster ghosts.

RELATED: How Sabrina’s Holiday Special Sets Up Season 2

Gryla and the Yule Lads originate in Icelandic myth. It was believed there were thirteen Lads who would visit children during the Christmas season. They would bring a gift or punishment, based on the child’s behavior throughout the year. Gryla was much more frightening, as her way of dealing with naughty children was to eat them. Suddenly a lump of coal is looking pretty appealing…

5 Fiction: Malum Malus

The Malum Malus is an enchanted apple which, when eaten, tells the consumer their future. Sabrina finds one and asks whether or not she should go through with her Dark Baptism. The Malum Malus instantly turns rotten and treats Sabrina to the disturbing image of witches hanging from a tree. The image disappears when she spits the apple out.

RELATED: 10 Riverdale References In Sabrina

“Malum Malus’ is Latin for “evil apple”. While forbidden fruit has its obvious biblical allusions, apples aren’t generally seen as a means of predicting the future. More traditional methods for doing so include tarot card readings or scrying, otherwise known as crystal gazing.

4 Based On Myth: Baphomet

This is perhaps Sabrina‘s most controversial borrowing from mythology, as it resulted in a lawsuit. The show features a statue of Baphomet, a goat-headed deity, at the Academy of Unseen Arts. The Academy is a breeding ground for the show’s most notorious villains. The statue is treated as a representative of Satan himself. At times, main antagonist Madam Satan has prayed to it.

The Satanic Temple didn’t take kindly to Baphomet’s depiction, referring to it as defamatory and accusing the show of damaging cultural appropriation. The Temple filed a $50 million lawsuit for copyright infringement, stating that the statue on the show bears an eerily close resemblance to one of their own creation. A settlement has since been reached, with the Satanic Temple given credit on the remaining episodes that feature the statue. Other details on the settlement remain undisclosed.

3 Fiction: Book Of The Beast

Have you ever been asked to sign anything and joked that you’re “signing your life away”? Well, those who sign the Book of the Beast are doing just that. During a witch’s Dark Baptism, the witch vows to serve the Dark Lord for life. To solidify the agreement, the witch signs the Book of the Beast in their own blood.

A blood ritual is all well and gross, but real-life witches are tired of seeing them in Hollywood. In an interview with real witches, many agreed the idea of a witch signing herself to the dark side was ridiculous. Anna McKerrow, an eclectic Pagan witch, said real witchcraft “tends more to the holistic and embraces the dark as a necessary complement to the light.

2 Based On Myth: Lilith

Mary Wardwell’s original name was Lilith. The story of Lilith originates in Jewish mythology. As Adam’s first wife, she was booted out of the Garden of Eden because she refused to submit to him. Lilith became the first witch after meeting Lucifer, a fallen angel, and healing him back to the health. As a tribute to him, Lilith/Mary Wardwell refers to herself as Madam Satan.

RELATED: Ranked: The Most Powerful Witches In Sabrina

Though different versions of her tale have varying details, the Sabrina iteration is quite faithful to the source. Perceptions of Lilith have shifted over time as well. Originally, she was viewed as a corruptor of good values. However, in contemporary society, many view her as a feminist symbol for refusing to bow to the patriarchy. This is what Sabrina is all about, making Lilith an apt mythological figure for the show.

1 Fiction: Dark Lord

Obviously, the figure of Satan is based in the real world. In Sabrina, the Dark Lord is the all-powerful figurehead of the Church of Night. Witches worship and adore him. This is in stark contrast to real witches, most of whom do not believe in Satan, let alone worship him. Many Wiccans recognize multiple deities, including the Goddess, who represents the divine feminine.

Many witches are offended at another Hollywood vehicle conflating Satanism and witchcraft. However, others see the Dark Lord as a symbol of patriarchy. Pam Grossman, a witch, told Huffington Post: “Even the witchly Church of Night is controlled by oppressive male figures. And one of the things I love best about the show is that Sabrina is trying to combat this and find her own, self-directed way of doing magic.”

Marvel Movies You Should Watch Based on Your MBTI

There are 16 personality types according to the Myers-Briggs Personality test. Every personality type is divided into two different categories, Introverted or Extroverted. Afterward, these are broken down into thinking or feeling personalities.

There are a lot of Marvel movies out there. From Sci-Fi to spy thrillers to solo outings to group efforts, nearly every kind of genre has been explored by the MCU.  With that, there is a movie for every kind of MBTI personality type. Why not use it to find out which movies are the best for your own personality type?

RELATED: 10 Marvel Superheroes Sorted By Their Myers-Briggs® Personality Types

8 Introversion Sensing (IS) – Thinking

For those on the thinking side, there are Marvel movies with more realism. That means later MCU movies like Guardians of the Galaxy or Avengers: Infinity War.  Both movies feature a mismatched group that unites against a powerful enemy.

IS Personalities are organized and adventurous. Watching Star-Lord and his friends beat the odds is the perfect night on the couch for them. Watching Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, the Hulk, and Hawkeye form a team to take down a god is thrilling.

The theme of teamwork overlaps into the Avengers movies. IS people are lucky to have many great options.

7 Introversion Sensing (IS) – Feeling

IS personalities are quiet, organized and compassionate. They are logical and are always looking for facts to solve problems. Feeling IS people prefer a balance of fact and fantasy. There are a few Marvel movies that keep that balance.

RELATED: The MBTI® Of Supergirl Characters

Captain America, The First Avenger is an earlier Marvel film. It puts some basic facts together for future MCU movies. World War 2 is the setting for Captain America’s first movie. It makes the story seem more realistic and the science more credible. A tragic love story fills out the background. The Winter Soldier has a similar plot that calls back to the Cold War era. It mixes a modern spy thriller with a classic tale of revenge. Captain America has to choose. Should he follow the rules or redeem a long-lost friend? Such a problem would be difficult to solve. Luckily, IS people are experts at solving problems.

6 Introversion Intuition (IN) – Feeling

The IN Personalities category is where you find the eccentric geniuses. Real life people in this category include Abert Einstein and Descartes. The MCU has a number of brilliant and mysterious characters. Bruce Banner, Hank Pym, Jane Foster, Hope Van Dyn and the Starks come to mind. IN people are as logical as their IS counterparts. There is a profound difference. They love wacky ideas and flights of fancy. That includes superheroes. MCU movies are their favorites.

For the feeling IN people who are more creative than logical, Dr. Strange is interesting. It’s the story of a skeptic who suffers a life-changing injury. The experience forces him to question his beliefs. The world of “magic” is based on shapes, symbols and dimensions. An IN person loves all of this. The Hulk is another option. It’s a sad story of a serious scientist who gets caught up in his own work. An IN person can relate to that kind of issue. An IN personality can look past the poor CGI and appreciate the story and acting.

5 Introversion Intuition (IN) – Thinking

The Ant-Man movies are a good choice for a thinking IN person. This is a different kind of science. Hank Pym himself that his invention “will change the texture of reality.” Ant-Man and the Wasp is an even better option for thinking INs.

RELATED: The Quantum Realm is Important to the MCU’s Future

The plot looks at the Quantum Realm in more detail but still allows plenty of room for philosophy and theory. Families uniting is a big part of the underlying plot. The villain in this movie is very relatable, an orphan fighting a chronic illness. A plus for Empathetic INs. The Quantum Realm represents a compelling philosophy. A fascinating concept for the creative IN person.

4 Extraversion Sensing (ES) – Thinking

Tony Stark is an obvious ES person. ES people love the finer things in life. They are energized around people. His antics underscore the plot of several MCU movies.

Those who share the same personality will like the Marvel movies that feature this superhero. His escape from the cave in the original Iron Man is a mix of survivalism, engineering skill and old-school metallurgy. The movie has a lot to say about intellectual property rights and corporate responsibility. Tony changes from a cool arms dealer to a compassionate superhero. He finds out he has a heart in the end. All of this would fascinate the thinking ES personality. The other Iron Man movies are similar, giving them a whole series to enjoy. Any Marvel movie with Tony would be a wise choice.

3 Extraversion Sensing (ES) – Feeling

Tony is a scientist for the thinkers. For those ES people that are more concerned with feeling, check out Thor: Ragnarok. The comic dialogue contrasts nicely with some of the darker plot points and quick action. This gives the expressive ES person plenty to observe.

RELATED: DCEU Characters Who Share Your MBTI® Type

Unlike Tony in the Iron Man movies, Thor doesn’t dominate every scene. Jane and her sidekick Darcy have plenty to say and do. The ES person can follow these transitions easily. The preceding films are other worthy entries. The original Thor and Thor The Dark World have a lot of astronomical theory in the storyline. It has a romantic subplot for those ES feeling people with a romantic side.

2 Extraversion Intuition (EN) – Thinking

ENs are forward thinking. These are the folks concerned with the future. That means globalism, cooperation and relationships. These Marvel movies have a lot to offer. Lore, world building and personal achievement are the focus. Everything ENs love is in these Marvel movies.

Thinking EN people will appreciate Black Panther. The complex characters and storyline will keep an IN person interested. They always seek understanding and improvement. The plot of the film fascinates worldly-minded EN personalities. Wakanda’s advanced tech and social structure make an impression on an innovative EN person. The story provides a unique look at political intrigue and government power. Problems between friends and family members drive the plot.  All decisions are personal. These issues are of concern to an energetic EN.

1 Extraversion Intuition (EN) – Feeling

The optimistic enthusiasm of a feeling EN person will gravitate towards Captain Marvel. This is not just a superhero movie. It’s the story of Carol Danvers, a determined fighter pilot. She survives a life-changing attack to become a powerful warrior. The mysterious origin of her powers is part of what makes the film compelling for a feeling EN. The questions and answers prompted by this film extend beyond the realm of earth. We learn about the Kree, an exotic alien culture. A world as amazing as the Quantum Realm or Wakanda.

The EN person is creative, determined and forward thinking. They are playful and caring, a reflection of the main character herself.

10 Possible Storylines For The Upcoming Deadpool Movie (Based On The Comics)

After a long and difficult road to getting his own solo film, the Deadpool films are currently among the biggest of superhero franchises. The R-rated, fourth-wall-breaking nature of the character was a risk but ended up being a much-needed fresh take on the genre. While some worried how the franchise would fare with the Disney-Fox deal, Disney has confirmed they plan to make more Deadpool films in the future.

RELATED: 10 Ways Disney Can Make The Deadpool Franchise Work

There are so many exciting places to take the character, and plenty of great comic book stories the future films can draw from. Deadpool and Deadpool 2 drew a lot of inspiration from particular comic arcs to great effect. Looking forward at the franchise’s future, here are some of the best storylines from the comics that the Deadpool movies should use.

10 Deadpool Vs The Hulk

Though some fans worried that joining Disney would result in a watered down version of Deadpool, the merger also provides a lot of potential for the future. The comics have always had great fun showing Deadpool interacting with other Marvel heroes. Now they can do that in the movies without being restricted to just the X-Men universe.

Deadpool Vs Hulk is a great story that is now a possibility. The story follows Deadpool who, after becoming bored and depressed with his life, picks a fight with The Hulk in an effort to end it all. Just the thought of these two very different characters facing off is enough to set the box office on fire.

9 With Great Power Comes Great Coincidence

One of the greatest aspects of Deadpool is his penchant for meta-comedy. His tendency to break the fourth wall allows the comics to comment on the medium itself and the history of Marvel comics at large. The story With Great Power Comes Great Coincidence is a fantastic example of how well this can be done.

The story finds Deadpool and Blind Al trapped in another dimension, which just so happens to be within the pages of a classic Spider-Man comic. While it might be a difficult story to transition to live action, an animated take on this story could be a real winner.

8 Night Of The Living Deadpool

Deadpool is one of those rare characters who can be transplanted into just about any genre. Not only will he fit in any world, but he’ll likely breathe some new life into it as well. Case in point, this comic story that has Deadpool in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.

Zombie movies can be a bit tiresome, but a Deadpool zombie movie just sounds like a whole lot of fun. It could be a superhero version of Shaun of the Dead. Since Deadpool isn’t weighed down but reality, why not have the movies see how wild they can get?

7 Dead Reckoning

So far, the Deadpool movies have found success in telling smaller, more personal stories. Indeed, Deadpool is not really the kind of character that needs to be involved with the world-saving adventures of the other heroes. However, a movie based on the Dead Reckoning story would give Deadpool a chance to be that kind of hero, albeit in a very Deadpool way.

A movie based on this story could fully explore Deadpool’s heroic nature or lack thereof. Does he have the capacity to be utterly selfless and try to save the world? Or would he rather see it all come crashing down just for the fun of it?

6 A Kiss, A Curse, A Cure

One of the most interesting aspects of the Marvel universe that has yet to be explored in the films is Death. In the comics, Death is a personified character who plays a big role in several storylines. She is famously Thanos’ muse and inspiration for wiping out half the universe. But she has also had a very interesting relationship with Deadpool.

This storyline explores the attraction between these two and the many complications that come with it. They want to be united, but Deadpool is a character that cannot die. This might be the ideal way of finally bringing Death to the big screen.

5 Dead Presidents

The comics can be really weird. And as much as the MCU does justice to the source material in various ways, sometimes the comics are just too “out there” for them to tackle. But if any character could fully embrace the insanity of the comics, it’s Deadpool. And the Dead Presidents storyline is the perfect opportunity to go all out.

The title of the story is not misleading. It is about all the past and deceased presidents of the United States being resurrected as zombies and Deadpool is tasked with re-killing them. It’s bizarre, it’s violent, it’s violent — the perfect Deadpool story.

4 Whatever Happened to the White Caption Boxes?

The voices inside Deadpool’s head have been a big part of his character and an aspect that has not yet been explored in the films. In the comics, those voices inside his head are referred to as the “little white boxes”. In this amazing storyline, those voices actually become personified.

RELATED: Canadian Easter Eggs In The Deadpool Movies You Might Have Missed

A part of Deadpool’s personality breaks off and comes to life in the form of Madcap, a forgettable Captain America villain from the past who shares a lot of similarities with Deadpool. Not only would this be a great way to look at Deadpool’s mental issues, but the face-off between these two characters would be highly entertaining.

3 The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Deadpool is one of the funniest characters in the Marvel universe, but it’s easy to forget that he is also a very tragic character. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly offers a lot of Deadpool’s trademark humor, but it is also incredibly heartbreaking.

After learning that the Weapon X program has been revived in North Korea and they are using Deadpool’s organs to create new mutants, he is forced to confront his dark past. With memorable appearances from Captain America and Wolverine, this is an epic story that added a lot of depth to the character of Deadpool.

2 Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe

One of the most exciting things we’re looking forward to with the next Deadpool movie is how he’ll comment on now being a part of the MCU. While they need to handle his involvement in that universe carefully, this famous storyline could be the perfect commentary.

In Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, Deadpool begins hearing a new voice in his head that instructs him to carry out a specific mission — killing everyone. What follows is Deadpool dispatching all our favorite heroes in violent ways. It would be hard to pull off but it could serve as the perfect end to the Deadpool trilogy.

1 Deadpool Kills Deadpool

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse showed how much fun could be had by exploring the multi-dimensions of the Marvel universe. Deadpool could have a similar adventure by adapting Deadpool Kills Deadpool for the big screen.

The story centers on an evil Deadpool from another universe who sets out to kill all other versions of Deadpool. It’s up to the Deadpool in our universe to stop him. There is so much potential in a story like this and imagine the fun of Ryan Reynolds getting to play every strange version of Deadpool that appears.

Magical Artifacts From The Order That Are Based On Real Relics

Truth is often stranger than fiction. If it’s not, fiction takes the truth and piles on some extra strange. Fantasy stories might seem far removed from reality, but they are often rooted in our milquetoast world. For instance, dragon mythology may have been the result of ancient humans misinterpreting dinosaur fossils or whale bones.

RELATED: The Order Vs. The Knights Of Saint Christopher: Who Would Win?

Numerous magical artifacts throughout pop-culture have real life counterparts as well. There’s a treasure trove of wondrous doodads in Netflix’s new show The Order, so let’s do some investigating and see what may have inspired those cinematic RPG items.

10 Enchanted Knives

Magic weapons are like giant spiders or reanimated skeletons. They’re practically a genre cliché at this point. Still, the enchanted knives used by members of the eponymous Order are frightening little numbers. A single cut could be fatal. Unless someone intervenes with a healing spell, you could be taken out by the equivalent of a shaving accident.

King Arthur’s Excalibur is probably the most famous magic weapon. However, it’s not the only prominent example. The Honjo Masamune was said to be one of the finest Japanese blades ever made. It was a cultural icon until it mysteriously vanished in 1946. According to legend, the Honjo was inhabited by a righteous, supernatural entity that would only serve a noble master.

9 True Sight Potion

Also known as Oculus Veritatis, the True Sight Potion allows those who drink it to see the true form of shapeshifters. This makes it extremely useful if you’ve got a werewolf problem. We usually consider potion-making to be a hobby for witches, but it was once an actual career.

Related: Where The Deathly Hallows & Philosopher’s Stone Are During Fantastic Beasts 2

Throughout history, alchemists tried combining chemistry with mysticism to create universal solvents or medicine that could cure anything. Some even tried to craft the immortality-bestowing Philosopher’s Stone. Shockingly, they weren’t successful. (Either that or none of them felt like sharing.)

8 Charm Necklace

At one point in the show, Edward Coventry uses a necklace charm to outsmart a magical truth serum. The necklace he wears isn’t given a name, but it allows him to say whatever someone wants to hear, thus countering the effects of the serum.

Related: Exclusive: Bad Joke Telling Season 3 Challenges The Cast Of NBC’s Champions

“Good luck charms” a.k.a. amulets play a part in almost every country’s belief system. Symbols such as the Christian crucifix, Hebrew chai, and Turkish Nazar-talisman are all used to ward off evil. Ironically, Coventry used a charm for evil, and that just isn’t charming at all.

7 Obfuscation Powder

This is basically The Order’s version of the Men in Black neuralyzer. Obfuscation Powder is primarily used to erase the minds of exiled Order members or neophytes that flunked the initiation trials. Although, as we learned from the season one finale, it can be weaponized as well.

In India, people apply a turmeric powder called Kumkuma to their foreheads because that’s where the spiritually receptive “third eye” is supposedly located. The powder is believed to heighten mankind’s connection with the divine. Thankfully, Kumkuma doesn’t erase memories. Otherwise, India would be a pretty confused place.

6 The Glove

This innocuous looking gauntlet was tailor-made for a good, old-fashioned inquisition. All you have to do is touch someone with The Glove and ask them a question. If they lie, The Glove burns their soul and makes them bleed from their eyes. Coventry would have needed a dozen charm necklaces to circumvent this frightening device.

In a way, The Glove is a supped-up version of medieval branding irons used to torture prisoners. It’s funny how wizards are always determined to cling to archaic behavior and technology. Even indoor plumbing took a while to catch on in the Harry Potter universe!

5 Cursed Obsidian Fragment

A major plot point in The Order is Coventry’s attempt to rebuild a malevolent book known as the Vade Maecum Infernal (more on that later). Decades before the events in the show, the book was split into four pieces and scattered across the world. One of the pieces was sealed within a fragment of obsidian that could deflect any spell back on its attacker.

While stones and crystals are another ubiquitous part of magical lore, obsidian was once an integral part of Mesoamerican cultures. Instead of steel, the Aztecs and Mayans used obsidian to craft weapons, particularly blades for sacrificial or bloodletting rituals. This works quite well aesthetically. After all, Obsidian is one of the most sinister looking mineraloids.

4 Necrophone

Contacting the dead used to be a huge hassle. You’d have to hire a medium, set up a seance, and even then there was no guarantee it would work. The Order’s necrophone cuts through all that nonsense. Designed like a phonograph, all you have to do is speak into the necrophone’s receiver and address the ghost of your choice. The most popular way of speaking with the dearly departed today is a spirit board or Ouija.

Related: The Best Haunted House Movies Of All Time

While the Ouija is little more than a party game, (invented by a savvy businessman in the 80’s) its ancient precursor: “fuji” or “planchette writing,” began in 1100 AD China. Practitioners of fuji would try to channel the dead and spell out messages by dragging a suspended writing device over sand or ashes. But don’t bother with any of that, pick up your very own necrophone today for just five payments of $19.99. Operators are standing by.

3 Werewolf Pelts

As discussed here, The Order gives werewolf lore a massive, highly creative makeover. In the show, werewolves are the result of magical wolf pelts (that appear to be alive and capable of thought) melding with human hosts. Think  Power Rangers, just with more hair and “wet dog” smell.

Related: John Landis Planned Amazing American Werewolf In London Sequel

Throughout history, many different types of warriors have worn pelts into battle. The best example would be Norse berserkers who believed they could take on the unique attributes of the animals they clad themselves in. The Order makes that line of reasoning literal.

2 Sir Richard De Payne

Calling De Payne a magical artifact is perhaps stretching the truth a little. He might look like an ancient, preserved corpse, but he’s very much alive. De Payne was cursed to sleep forever and conceal part of the Vade Maecum inside his subconscious. To retrieve the piece, an intrepid spellcaster must enter his eternal dream and face a gauntlet of horrors designed specifically with them in mind. No pun intended.

Even though he has a pulse, De Payne’s closest real-world analog would probably be a mummy. Everyone immediately thinks of the Egyptian variety, but there are also chilling stories of Buddhist monks allegedly self-mummifying themselves with a technique involving meditation, starvation, and gradual suffocation. In Catholicism, incorruptibility (a.k.a. defying the natural process of decomposition) is said to be a sign of sainthood. With an imagination like his though, De Payne is clearly no saint.

1 Vade Maecum Infernal

This is The Order’s answer to the One Ring or the Infinity Stones. Anyone who forges a contract with the Maecum gains immense power and the ability to perform magic without any of the usual drawbacks. All it takes is one tiny, initial fee: the sacrifice of your first-born son. But hey, if you want to make an omelet you’ve got to break a few kid-sized eggs, right? Evil books are incredibly common in fiction and, surprisingly, they’re common in our reality too.

The Codex Gigas/Devil’s Bible was conceived by a fallen monk on the night before his execution in a bizarre bid for clemency. Knowing he would be unable to finish it in time, the monk made a pact with Satan asking him to complete the Codex in return for his soul. Or so the story goes. Speaking of which, do you think the Prince of Darkness would be willing to help out with a few pop-culture listicles? Asking for a friend.

Vikings: 7 Characters That Were Based On Real People (And 3 That Are Completely Fictional)

Vikings was a phenomenal breath of fresh air for historical fiction fans all around the world. It’s packed with action, adventure, and drama. The storylines are compelling, the characters are strong and beautifully developed, the sceneries are breathtaking, and everything’s nicely wrapped around the overall awesomeness that is the Viking world.

Since 2013 we excitingly devoured every episode, waiting for our weekly fix of inspiring women warriors, tales of conquerors and defeated souls, marriages, children, and, quite honestly, pretty fantastic outfits that made us wish we got to be transported back in time. The tale of Ragnar Lothbrok, and later, of his children, will surely stay with many of us for years to come.

Related: Vikings: 25 Things Wrong With Ivar The Boneless We All Choose To Ignore

With the last season fast approaching, we can’t help but wonder just how much of the real-life events that inspired Vikings were transported into the screen. More specifically, how real were the characters that we grew to love and hate? How many of them actually existed, and which ones are pure TV-elaborated fantasy?

In honor of five incredible seasons, and before we dive into the finale, here are 5 characters from Vikings that were based on real people, and 5 that were pure fiction.

10 Based On Real People: Rollo

We know Rollo as Ragnar’s brother in the show. Rollo was, indeed, a historical figure, and the character we see on the show is based on him. However, there’s no chance he was actually Ragnar’s brother (more on Ragnar later) because they would have lived decades apart.

The real-life Rollo is pretty similar to the one we see on-screen, apart from the sibling thing. He’s credited with founding the House of Normandy, and his bloodline went on to become the first Norman monarchs of England. They also conquered Sicily and a part of what we know today as Sicily.

Rollo is probably the one character on the show depicted with greatest historical accuracy, considering tales of him and his descendants are very much alive still today.

9 Based On Real People: Floki

Floki probably strikes a chord amongst Marvel fans, who clearly see a resemblance between Floki’s mischievous personality and quirky ways and Norse God Loki. In truth, the character of Floki is based on the real-life historical figure of Floki Vilgerson, none other than the founder of Ireland himself.

While in earlier seasons of the show we see him depicted as the warrior who helped Ragnar reach new lands, at first the story doesn’t follow the one from his real-life counterpart very closely. However, during season 5, Floki’s storyline starts following more closely the events that shaped the life of fierce and intelligent warrior Floki Vilgerson.

8 Based On Real People: Lagertha

Lagertha is a fierce, strong, beautiful, and overall fantastic character that inspired every single fan of Vikings. It’s a joy for viewers to be allowed to see such a complex female character on screen, who is allowed to be both fragile and determined, fighting alongside Ragnar himself.

Related: 10 Things The Last Kingdom Does Better Than Vikings

Lagertha’s story is told in the ninth book of the Gesta Danonum, and she’s described as a fierce warrior and skilled Amazon. Truth is, whether we’re talking about the real or the fictionalized version of Lagertha, knowing such a badass lady was once out there, slaying some metaphorical dragons and actual enemies, gives us a nice, warm feeling inside.

7 Based On Real People: Ivan The Boneless

We saw a slight departure from the original storyline of Vikings starting with season 5. The show gave the spotlight to Ragnar’s sons, allowing fans to rejoice in accompanying the adventures, fights and conquests of his bloodline. And even though Ragnar isn’t considered by specialists as an actual historical figure, his sons are (weird, yes).

One of his children is Ivan The Boneless, a nickname derived either from a curse cast upon him by the gods or from brittle bone disease. The latter seems a bit more believable, but the ruthless character from the show was very much a thing in real life, and his depiction in the show is actually incredibly accurate.

6 Based On Real People: Aslaug

Ragnar’s second wife, the mother of five of his sons, is also loosely based on her historical counterpart. Perhaps one of the most interesting moments both depicted in fiction and history is the riddle Ragnar presents Aslaug with upon their meeting, providing insight to Aslaug’s wits and powers.

Related: Vikings: 5 Things That Are Historically Accurate (And 5 Things That Are Completely Fabricated)

Aslaug was of noble lineage, born from Sigurd and Brynhild, who died when she was just a child. Raised by peasants, Aslaug has the gift of second-sight, that allows her to predict key elements and events of the future. One of these events just so happens to be the condition that her son Ivar would fall victim to.

5 Based On Real People: Aethelwulf

Son of King Ecbert and leader of his army, with a less than joyful love life, Aethelwulf was a great character that brought a lot to the show. His demise didn’t quite make justice to the great warrior’s life (being stung by a bee and dropping dead because it turns out you’re allergic doesn’t quite make it to the top of the list on heroic ways to die).

In Vikings, he is portrayed as not being the smart type, being used as a pawn quite frequently, and hurting greatly for it (emotionally more than anything else). However, there’s no evidence the real Aethelwulf was the same, and he was very well known for his composure and willingness to endure – a fantastic example for his son, Alfred The Great.

4 Based On Real People: Judith

Yes, you read that right. Alfred The Great wasn’t the illegitimate son of Judith and her lover. He was very much the legitimate child of Aethelwulf with his first wife, Osburh of Wessex. Judith as a real-life, historical figure is quite different from the one we see on the show, mostly due to her age.

Related: 10 Character Additions That Hurt Vikings (And 10 That Saved It)

During the time period during which the show takes place, Judith, the daughter of Charles the Bald of West Francia, was only a teen when her hand was given in marriage to Aethelwulf, several years her senior. The pair never had any children, and much of what we see on the show, including the affairs, were very improbable at that time.

3 Fictional: Athelstan

Witnessing Athelstan’s struggle after being taken as a slave by Ragnar was, for many, one of the most interesting journeys in Vikings. The former Christian monk starts to seriously doubt his faith once he is confronted with a reality completely different from the one that he knew. His friendship with Ragnar is also an important plot point of the show, and kept many fans engaged.

However, there is no actual recollection of a monk turned Viking that just so happened to be Ragnar’s best friend. On the contrary, the most famous Athelstan of that time was related to Alfred The Great, first ruler of the English. While the show would not be the same without Athelstan and his struggles, such a character never actually existed.

2 Fictional: Ragnar

Yes, believe it or not, it’s true. While it’s almost impossible to picture Vikings as we know and love without the central part of Ragnar for the first four seasons, historians aren’t even sure Ragnar was a real person. There are many legends about the great Ragnar, and they are very much in accordance with what we see in the show.

However, the general consensus among historians is that Ragnar is most likely an amalgamation of several people. Tales of Ragnar, the king, and conqueror, actually come from Old Norse poetry, and not actual historical documents or artifacts.

What’s a bit odd, however, is that his sons, who are also presented in the show, are considered historical figures, while Ragnar is considered more myth than reality. Either way, real or nor, Ragnar was the first real heart of the show and we couldn’t be happier we got to see the legend play out on-screen.

1 Fictional: Kwenthrith of Mercia

The character of Kwenthrith of Mercia is pretty much fictionalized in its entirety. The traits that make the character very much dislikable by anyone who knows and watches the show are, indeed, based in some historical figures.

Kwenthrith of Mercia is actually an amalgamation of three historical figures, Princess Cwenthryth, Queen Cynethryth, and her daughter Eadburh. Her manipulative and conniving aspects are based on very unflattering tales of the latter two. While the single character of Kwenthrith didn’t actually exist, the showrunners did a great job introducing her to the show. Who doesn’t love a great villain, after all?

Danger Girl Movie Based On 90s Comic Lands Kick-Ass 2 Director

Jeff Wadlow is diving back into the comic book movie realm to direct Danger Girl, a live-action take on the hit 90s comic. The first issue of J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell’s action/spy comic was released in 1998, but the original run only lasted seven issues. The story follows an all-female team of spies who save the world time and time again. After the twist-filled story came to a close, the Danger Girl world has continued to live on thanks to one-shots and special mini-series.

In the comics, the team mainly consists of three women – Abbey Chase, Sydney Savage, and Sonya Savage – who are equally deadly and stunning. Together they are Danger Girl Freelance Operations Limited and led by a former British Secret Service Agent named Deuce, while also getting help from teenage genius Silicon Valerie. With the series often being compared to Charlie’s AngelsJames Bond, and Indiana Jones, it was over seven years ago that talk of a Danger Girl movie began.

Related: See How This Amazing Danger Girl Statue Was Made

After all this time, Danger Girl finally appears to be moving forward, as THR reports Jeff Wadlow has signed on to direct the live-action film adaptation. Wadlow is no stranger to comic book movies after previously directing Kick-Ass 2, which also featured a young central female hero in Hit-Girl. The Danger Girl movie comes from Constantin Films, who have yet to announce a release date for their latest film. Campbell and Hartnell will receive executive producer credits on the movie.

Wadlow has targeted action and horror films in the past, and Danger Girl will likely fall in the former category. Even beyond Kick-Ass 2, Wadlow was able to deliver on the action in Never Back Down and previously tackled the spy concept with Kevin James’ Netflix film True Memoirs of an International Assassin. He also helmed the box office success Truth or Dare and has teamed up with Blumhouse again for Fantasy Island.

Even though Wadlow has joined Danger Girl, it may still be a while before more news arrives. He’ll be working on Fantasy Island up till its February 2020 release, and with him also set to rewrite the script from Umair Aleem, there is still some work that needs to be done before Danger Girl can move forward further. Once the script is done, then Constantin and Wadlow will be ready to figure out who they can cast as the three main stars and any of their many villains. So, unless additional reports surface that Wadlow will begin work on Danger Girl before he finishes up Fantasy Island, fans of the comic hopeful to see it translated to the big screen may need to prepare to wait a few more years.

10. ESFJ: Atlanta

Zazie Beetz in Atlanta

Atlanta is a classic tale of showing interest in a family member just in time to ride their coattails. In the show, Earn (Donald Glover) is jobless and trying to turn his life around. His cousin Alfred (Bryan Tyree Henry) is clawing his way up the ranks of the local rap scene. As soon as Earn realizes his cousin may be headed somewhere he sees his path to a better life.

9. ISTP: Queen Sugar

Queen Sugar Promo Header

ISTPs love to figure out what makes things and people tick. The complex and rich interpersonal relationships in Queen Sugar make the perfect puzzle for them to savor and unravel. The ISTP’s calm, rational mind loves to carefully dissect a complicated human interaction and examine it piece by piece. ISTPs can sometimes leap before they look. This impulsiveness means they sometimes find themselves a little too deep in someone else’s business.

8. ESFP: Bob’s Burgers

Bob's Burgers Boat

ESFPs love to have a good time. They’re the life of the party and love other big, vibrant personalities. They also have a keen sense of aesthetic. They love beautiful things and visual patterns.

7. ISTJ: Pawn Stars

ISTJs aren’t above a little guilty pleasure. As long as it’s straightforward. These practical thinkers love the straight forward and mundane. Nothing could make them happier than a succinct interesting story and a quick offer. Pawn Stars is a great choice for ISTJs. They love rules, order, and chaos. The standards on Pawn Stars are linear. The staff knows what they can move and what they can’t. The consistent format of the show would be comforting while the unique items provide novelty.

6. ENTJ: The Affair

The Affair TV Show

The Affair is exactly what it sounds like, a show about an affair. The story is told from the perspective of many different characters, all of whom have their own motivations, interpretations, and perspectives. ENTJs have a difficult time with emotional expression. They’re too rational and analytical to devote too much to their feelings. Watching the effects of an affair on so many deeply feeling characters would prove to be fascinating for ENTJs. Picking apart each character’s every move could be a full-time job for them.

INFJ is an intuitive personality type. They can smell drama like blood in the water. The Real Housewives series is the perfect match for these judgemental diplomats.

4. ESTP: The Sopranos

The Sopranos Cast

The Sopranos appeals to the no-nonsense ESTP. They’re exactly the type of person who can handle the rough east coast culture portrayed in the show. ESTPs aren’t afraid of a little risky behavior. They won’t bat an eye at half of the illegal and shady shenanigans on that the family gets up to. This personality type is also very enterprising. They can appreciate the hustle more than most. They’re the boss of their domain and they love watching other strong personalities handle their business.

3. ISFJ: Dexter

ISFJs live by a code. They hold everyone around them to the same high moral standards. Their deeply analytical minds mean they love having a mystery to sink their teeth into. Dexter is a perfect choice for these principled thinkers. His rules help them ease into the horror of the gore and murder. Having the illusion of order amid the chaos makes the dark drama palatable. Many ISFJs can relate to a mind as calculating as Dexter’s. Slowly unraveling the twists and turns of the plot will be a delicious treat.

2. ESFP: The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon

Golden Globes 2017 - Jimmy Fallon

The performer in the ESFP can’t resist good showmanship. Jimmy Fallon hosts an army of talent every season. This show is sure to keep a big personality entertained. ESFPs can have a short attention span which makes late night TV perfect for them. There’s always something new and different t delight this rich and generous personality type. For a group of people who love cheering others on, The Tonight Show is a perfect choice.

1. INTJ: How I Met Your Mother

INTJs are in it for the long haul. These future thinkers know how to dig their heels in stick to a commitment. This show is extremely long and drawn out, but worth every moment. INTJs eat up every bit of the slow drip that is How I Met Your Mother. It takes a specific personality to stay interested in a show that takes 9 seasons to tell a simple story. INTJ is in it to win it. Their curiosity keeps them coming back for more, even in a slump season.

Glass: Rotten Tomatoes Reveals ‘Rotten’ Score Based On Early Reviews

After some brutal early reviews for the movie, Rotten Tomatoes has revealed a “rotten” 35% score for M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass. Shyamalan’s latest arrives two years after his last movie Split, starring James McAvoy as a man with multiple personalities who kidnaps a group of school girls, revived the director’s reputation while grossing $278 million at the global box office.

In addition to providing classic Shyamalan thrills, Split also contained one of the director’s signature twists, when Bruce Willis’ David Dunn character from Shyalaman’s Unbreakable showed up for a brief cameo. With the film’s box office tally rising, Shyamalan explained that Split was indeed intended as a sequel to Unbreakable, and revealed that his next movie Glass would wrap up the trilogy by bringing back McAvoy and Willis together with Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price. Glass soon became one of the most buzzed-about films of 2019, with fans anticipating a satisfying wrap-up to the story kicked off in Unbreakable and surprisingly continued in Split.

Related: 2019 Will Have The Most Superhero Movies Ever Released

However, after early screenings of Glass, it appears those excited fans may be in for a disappointing experience. After the first round of early reviews largely panned Shyamalan’s newest effort, aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes has rendered an initial verdict and given Glass a score of 35%, putting it firmly in “rotten” territory. It remains to be seen if Glass will do better on the audience side of the Rotten Tomatoes ledger after it hits theaters in nationwide release.

Getting hit with a “rotten” rating by Rotten Tomatoes is of course nothing new for M. Night Shyamalan, who has seen several of his releases get panned by critics over the years. Unsurprisingly, Shyamalan’s worst-performing movie ever on Rotten Tomatoes is his 2010 debacle The Last Airbender, which currently sits at a dismal 5%. The director’s Will Smith-led 2012 sci-fi disaster After Earth also got crushed by critics, receiving a score of 11%, while his unintentionally (or maybe intentionally) hilarious 2008 disaster movie The Happening sits at 18%.

But Shyamalan hasn’t always been a target for so much critical wrath. His breakout feature The Sixth Sense was a smash hit when it came out in 1999, and carries an 85% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Unbreakable itself stands at a solid 69%, just a little bit behind the director’s sci-fi classic Signs at 73%. In more recent years, Shyamalan has seen his quirky horror excursion The Visit score 66% on Rotten Tomatoes, and Split did even better with a score of 76%.

It’s no shock at all to see Shyamalan’s Rotten Tomato scores falling all over map, given the well-documented ups-and-downs of his long career. If Rotten Tomatoes’s 35% score for Glass is any indication, Shyamalan has indeed hit another one of those low points. But if the writer-director has proven anything over the years, it’s that he somehow always manages to bounce back. It appears however that, when Shyamalan does come back again, it won’t be with another sequel to Unbreakable/Split, as the trilogy most likely will not continue beyond Glass.
