SFX magazine issue 319 is now in the shops, and comes with a choice of two covers! Pick either the grinning skull of a Terminator from the forthcoming Dark Fate or Ruby Rose as Batwoman.

Batman's skedaddled, but don't fret: Gotham City has a new protector, as Kate Kane dons a Bat-mask (and, er, a big red wig). We talk to showrunner Caroline Dries and stars Ruby Rose and Dougray Scott.

Arnie, Linda Hamilton and producer James Cameron are all back, for a sequel which quietly pretends the last three films didn't happen (frankly we were already doing that for at least two of them). We quiz the cast. 

Doctor Sleep

How do you adapt Stephen King's sequel to The Shining and keep both the Kubrick Estate and the author (who hated the movie) happy? Tricky. Writer/director Mike Flanagan tells us about the resulting stress ulcer. 

The Walking Dead

Did you bail on the zombie saga a while back? Well maybe you should reconsider, cause season nine marked a bit of a resurgence. We ask cast and crew how they'll keep it up for season ten.
