Justice League (Alex Ross)

George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet) had a fantastic story and plans to develop a superhero team film which would have pre-dated The Avengers.

What if God abdicated his throne, fled from Heaven, and chose to live among us on Earth? What supernatural or otherworldly phenomena would spawn if an angel and a demon were to have a forbidden tryst? What happens when a man of God gains the Almighty’s voice and can direct and command anyone at will? And when this individual, who has been cursed with this unexpected power over others, learns of God’s vanishing… how far will he go to confront his maker and demand some answers?

This is Preacher. (more…)

Marvel has made a pretty heavy announcement today adding some big names to the cast of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. They have also released some beautiful new concept art featuring the new villain Hela.

With the new cast additions of Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, and Karl Urban this latest adventure is shaping up to be pretty great. (more…)

Stan Lee

Let’s face it: we all owe a great deal to comic book icon Stan Lee. Without his contributions to comics in general, we wouldn’t know such great characters as Spider-Man, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, The X-Men, and countless others. The last 10+ years of superhero films wouldn’t exist without his contributions. Even after he stepped down from an active role at Marvel, Lee continued to be a part of geek culture. Everything from lectures across the country on his impact to the industry, to his charity work, to his numerous cameos, and of course him always being on the comic convention circuit. Over the years, Lee’s always made himself available at many comic conventions, including the big ones: San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic-Con. As he has grown older, he has tried to remain active at conventions, even though he eventually started winding down in his appearances. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. (more…)

Darwyn Cooke‘s had a big influence on comic books and comic book-related media the last 25 years, but now he belongs to the ages. After yesterday’s surprising announcement that the writer and artist was battling a “bout with aggressive cancer” comes sad news today that he’s lost that battle. (more…)
