Focusing on real events, True Haunting chronicles Ed and Marsha Becker as they discover their new home is haunted by the spirits of its previous tenants. “Desperate for help, the Beckers sought out an exorcism: the first ever televised. Millions around the country tuned in. Although the broadcast was a success, the exorcism was not. Instead, it made things worse. Much worse…”

Kraven the Hunter
Meanwhile, The Illuminerdi alleges Russell Crowe has been cast in Kraven the Hunter as Nikolai Kravinoff, the “father of Sergei Kravinoff, aka Kraven The Hunter, and Dmitri Smerdyakov, aka Chameleon.” The outlet also suggests Taylour Paige will play Calypso, the voodoo priestess long associated with Kraven in her bid to get revenge with him against Spider-Man.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
In the latest issue of D3 Magazine (via The Direct), Rachel McAdams confirmed Christine Palmer is no longer romantically involved with Stephen Strange.
They are not back together, unfortunately… as we saw at the end of Doctor Strange, he chose to stay in the Sanctum, meaning he can’t entertain his selfish desires. He would’ve loved to stay with Christine at the end of that movie, but he did the hard thing. He said, ‘No. I’m going to be a Super Hero and defend our reality. I have to move on. Our movie shows him dealing with the decisions he’s made. He might regret how things ended with Christine; he still carries a torch for her.
