Chance the Rapper Is Set To Host 'SNL'

Chance is pretty cozy with the folks over at Studio 8H. He handled their big Christmas show last year and has pitched in on a few sketches during his time as a musical guest. But one thing the rapper, producer, humanitarian, multi-hyphenate extraordinaire has yet to do is actually host the show. But he’ll be checking that box off in November too.

Yes, it appears Chance will be swapping musical guest duties for the main stage on November 18, while Eminem will be filling in with the songs.
Chance isn’t exactly an untested talent onstage. He showed up for a verse on last year’s “Jingle Barack,” an ’80s-infused hip-hop tribute to President Barack Obama’s last holiday in the Oval Office. It’s not exactly Christmas season (yet), but you can re-live the wonder here.

And we’d be remiss to not note that Tiffany Haddish, who positively stole the show in this year’s Girls Trip, will be hosting opposite Taylor Swift the week before, and the reliably funny Larry David will handle hosting duties with Miley Cyrus on the ones and twos next week. All in all, a pretty good looking lineup for November.

New Issue of ‘Batman’ Will Explore His Catholic Upbringing & Why He’s Not a Christian Anymore

The recent run of Batman comics by red-hot comic book writer Tom King has really leaned into Batman’s human side, exploring his loneliness, mental health and doomed romantic life more profoundly than any in recent memory. And now, it appears, the series is going to tackle yet another of the Dark Knight’s all-too-human experiences: lost faith.In a preview of an upcoming issue illustrated by Lee Weeks and released to Inverse, Bruce Wayne reveals that his father raised him as a Christian. Wayne’s father, as you may be aware, is no longer in the picture, and when he died, he took Bruce’s fledgling faith with him. No word on whether or not Bruce is going to rediscover his faith as part of this story, but he’s not in a great place, generally. His bride-to-be, Catwoman, stood him up at the altar and he’s in trouble with the law for possibly botching a case. So, if ever there was a time for Batman to turn to a higher power, it might be now.You can read the full preview here.
