Cursed story

Cursed puts a twist on the King Arthur legend, since it's told through the eyes of the Excalibur-bestowing enchantress, the Lady Of The Lake. The character is depicted here as a teenager, named Nimue, with a mysterious gift, and the coming-of-age series shows how she arrives on the road to her destiny. According to the plot description (via Variety), after her mother dies, Nimue joins a young mercenary named Arthur, on his quest to find the magician Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. The future Lady Of The Lake become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the “terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther."

“I have always been entranced by the mythological Arthur story—and by Nimue, in particular,” said Frank Miller said in a statement after the book announcement, per CBR. “It can be interpreted in any number of ways — from a delightful children’s story, as in The Sword In The Stone, to a terrifying interpretation like Excalibur. This tale represents an incredible opportunity and an exciting challenge for me as an illustrator, and I’m excited to collaborate on the story with Thomas Wheeler. I inherited a collection of antique children’s books from my mother, and I’ve always wanted to have a crack at it myself. This project is a dream come true.”

Miller, who co-directed Sin City with Robert Rodriguez, also wrote the graphic novels Ronin, Daredevil: Born Again, and 300. He created the character Elektra for Marvel Comics’ Daredevil series, and the character Carrie Kelley for DC Comics. Miller wrote and directed The Spirit, which was based on the Will Eisner comic book series.

13 Reasons Why Would Have Been Totally Different With the Original Cast: The casting directors of 13 Reasons Why managed to find the perfect group of young actors for its ensemble cast, which is no easy task. The stars (literally) aligned to play Hannah, Jeff, and more in the Netflix series . . . but things could have been completely different. Turns out that several of the key actors had originally intended to play different characters than the roles they were eventually assigned. It's a trip to think about Katherine Langford as anyone but Hannah Baker, or Brandon Larracuente as Justin (!), but in an alternate universe, here's what may have happened.

Sane leaves Germany squad because of personal reasons .
Manchester City winger Leroy Sane has left the German national squad due to personal reasons. Bild journalist Christian Falk has confirmed that the German winger has left and is now expected to return to Manchester City. Sane will miss Germany’s friendly against Peru, which takes place on Sunday. Reasons behind his withdrawal are yet to be confirmed by either club or country. The news is the latest blow for Sane, who has endured a torrid start to the new season. Despite enjoying a fine Premier League season under Pep Guardiola last season, Sane was left out of the German World Cup squad to much controversy. The young star has also been shunned to the sidelines by Guardiola at Manchester City this season, with the player looking a shadow of the man that dazzled the Premier League last time out. After being recalled to the German set-up for the first international break of the season, Sane came off the bench in the final 10 minutes against France on Thursday night.
