Michael Kennedy is a FL native, although he does occasionally live elsewhere. His pop culture passions include the horror and sci-fi genres, Marvel and DC movies and shows, the WWE, heavy metal, 90s grunge music, and lots of other things. Stephen King is Michael's personal creative idol, and if King is involved in something, Michael will probably read/watch/listen to it. Also, Michael likes both the MCU and DCEU and doesn't understand why the fandoms have to be so mean to each other. When not reporting on the latest news for Screenrant, he enjoys attending genre conventions, going to theme parks, and rocking out at concerts. Michael has been writing for SR since 2014, and hopes to continue doing so for many years to come.
