‘Riverdale’: Camila Mendes Talks ‘New Darkness’ To Archie In Season Two

Riverdale Camila Mendes Archie DarknessWarning: Major Riverdale Season One Spoilers Ahead!

The first season of Riverdale featured a number of surprising twists and turns, culminating in a season finale where Archie’s father, Fred, was shot during a robbery that Jughead’s voice-over narration later revealed was a deliberate attempt on Fred’s life. Fans will have to wait until the second season begins to learn Fred’s fate, but the incident will undoubtedly have a lasting impression on several characters, especially Archie. At the Entertainment Weekly & PEOPLE Upfronts, actress Camila Mendes told Entertainment Weekly how the shooting will affect the characters and what impact it will have on Archie.

Mendes revealed that the second season will explore a darker side to Archie.

“It’s going to unpack so many things in terms of the relationships for season 2 because Archie’s going to be going through this really traumatic experience and Veronica’s going to have to be there to help with that burden. I like that there’ll be a new darkness to Archie. I think it’s going to add a lot of edge to his character and some depth.”

10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV

Independent Comics
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.

Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles.  Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems  from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet.  Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing.   Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.

Here’s a list of 10 more comics ripe for the silver screen. Click Next to start!
