Kevin Feige Declares That The MCU Will Never Go Dark

update-may-6th-2016-marvel-vs-dc

Given that the theme of DC’s upcoming films seems to be darkly darkened darkness, it’s great to hear Kevin Feige declare that the same won’t be happening within the MCU. There will of course be plenty of tense, high-stakes moments and scenarios (as seen in Age of Ultron and no doubt Civil War), but it won’t be turning into the gloomy broodfest that DC is getting their rocks off to nowadays. That’s not to say that they’re wrong to go down more of a dark route, especially with properties like Batman, but I can’t help but wish they’d take some time to have a little fun with their characters too. Marvel, bless their dorky souls, excel in this area with their big, fun, exciting films.  (more…)

With only two episodes left of the Flash and Arrow left in their respective seasons, viewers must prepare themselves for post season withdrawals – having to cope with the reality of “well sh*t, what am I gonna watch now”. While we can’t help you there, we can tell you that the last two episodes of each show are going to epic. How epic? We don’t know, we haven’t seen them. But, CW is labeling the series end as a “cage match”, so if that tells you anything. To sell this season showdown even more, The CW has released several spiffy looking character posters. They feature Matt Nable’s Ra’s al Ghul, Robbie Amell’s Firestorm, and several other characters from the series. If anything, they’ll make for great autograph material should you ever get to meet either of the shows stars.  (more…)

So Marvel makes Guardians of the Galaxy. Turns out what was  – on paper – a laughably ridiculous concept, made for a immensely successfully blockbuster hit. Now every studio wants their own Guardians of the Galaxy-type movie.

Dreamworks comes up to bat with a brand new sci-fi action comedy called Alpha Squad Seven. And just because he’s the IN thing right now, they’ve also got Dwayne Johnson attached to the project. Yeah, Guardians of the Galaxy with The Rock? You can just picture a studio guy at Dreamworks nodding his head saying to himself “yeah… I’m so getting a raise.”  (more…)

If you’re a nerd of a certain age, and spent your time indoors (let’s face it, most of us did), then you’ll remember being held up in front of a gleaming glow of computer screen playing the graphic adventure game Kings Quest widely considered a classic series from the golden era of adventure games. Fans of the classic King’s Quest series have been clamoring for a new release for a long time. It’s time to rejoice – a revival this way comes!  (more…)

USA Today have given us our first real look at the live-action Jem and the Holograms, as they’ll appear in the upcoming feature film based on the popular ’80s cartoon.

The gallery of images centers on the animation and toy icons, providing them with an updated backstory for the “YouTube generation.” If you grew up in the 80’s and are a fan of Jem, then that last statement will have made you throw up in your mouth a little. This is Jem and The Holograms, but in name only. (more…)
