In the lead up to the final few Supernatural episodes, a trailer has been released showing the brothers in their final battle.

It’s been 15 years of adventures for the Winchester brothers, with them facing anything from demons to God – and the stakes just keep getting higher.

It’s all set to come to a head in the show’s finale, where the hunters’ story will come to an end once and for all.

What’s in store for the Supernatural finale?

Supernatural will go out with a bang this November, allowing fans to well and truly say goodbye to the show.

There will be a look back at some of the series’ best moments in a special episode called ‘The Long Road Home’, followed by the final episode.

A trailer has been released, giving fans a glimpse of the brothers’ final moments.

It also includes snippets from the cast, with Jared Padalecki saying: “He and I, and everybody here, just wants to say thank you.”

The actor recently admitted that the final episode was one of his absolute favorites, with his co-star, Jensen Ackles, agreeing.

Ackles spoke to Glamour about the episode’s rewrite, after the ongoing health crisis delayed filming. He said: “We were supposed to have a lot of familiar faces come back, and we were going to try to filter them into a montage. It was going to be almost a break from the story and a look at how far we’ve come—a little tip of the hat to the fans—and we would all be able to celebrate together”

Unfortunately, this wasn’t possible, but Ackles has assured fans that the all-important ending has stayed the same.

This won’t be the last fans see of the actors though, with Padalecki taking on the lead role in a Walker, Texas Ranger reboot and Ackles joining showrunner Eric Kripke on The Boys as Soldier Boy.

The final episode, ‘Carry On’, will air November 19 on The CW.

Spider-Verse producer wants Spider-Man: Miles Morales glitches in sequel

The transformational glitches in Spider-Man: Miles Morales are pretty hilarious. So hilarious, in fact, that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s producer, screenplay and story writer, Phil Lord, wants to use them in the hit movie’s sequel.

Lord and his filmmaking duo, Christopher Miller, are no strangers to animation or comedy. With titles like Spider-Verse, Lego Movie, and 21 Jump Street under their shared filmmaking belt, it’s no wonder that the two are unafraid of getting a little weird with the animated Spider-Man flick’s sequel.

And if you want inspiration for red and blue weirdness, look no further than the Miles Morales game. Playable on PS4 and PS5, the title has apparently been a massive success, with 97 percent of Google users enjoying it. While people are typically annoyed with launch day bugs, the issues with this one are just too funny to chastise. 

With weird, viral videos of players transforming into various inanimate objects, it was actually a transformation of a patio heater that caught Lord’s eye. Now, it appears that “Heater Parker” could become a reality in Spider-Verse 2.

Since the original Spider-Verse movie was chock-full of absurdities and goofy odes to different genres or pop-culture references, invoking a video game’s glitch should be no problem. And, as far as content goes, few things evoke comedic surrealism as much as a patio heater using a web to swing from building to building in New York City.

For Lord, at least, the randomized development mistake appears too funny to ignore as film inspiration: “We’re putting this in Spider-Verse 2 if we have any self-respect at all.”

Hopefully, he and Miller have as much self-respect as the title’s developers, Insomniac Games, have humility. In response to Lord’s tweet, which has since gone viral, the game’s makers couldn’t help but acknowledge their imperfections with a pun.

While we were under the impression that patio heaters were meant to heat patios, not hearts, the Insomniac reflection remains accurate: this silly, inanimate object glitch is “equally as embarrassing as it is heartwarming.”

But, above all else, they’re just funny. It could legitimately be one of gaming and cinema’s greatest, most randomly inspired crossovers if Spider-Verse 2 involves an alternate dimensional Heater Parker.
