While I loved watching this summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, I felt like I had been, in part, been  robbed. The aggressive marketing campaign would lead viewers to believe that all of the characters  featured in the posters, on the magazine covers, and even the dollar store toys and novelty cups would  have at least some bit of screen time. Most of us knew going into the film that the reality was that with  a film with so many X-folks, the bigger guns—Xavier, Magneto, that clawed fellar—would capture more  screen time than the little fish like Blink and Bishop. However, with the release date of Days on Blu-ray  and DVD just next month, it looks like Rogue and the other X-Men who got the short shrift will get their  due in an extended version of the film next summer.

Jeremy Renner Likes His Job And Doesn’t Want Extra Work Doing It

- 09-25-14Comics, Film Posted by Aspry Jones

HAWKEYE

For a guy who was considered as getting short-changed in ‘The Avengers,’ Jeremy Renner gets to be as talkative as his costars. Mark Ruffalo wants an “environmentally themed” Hulk film, Chris Evans might/might not quit acting, Robert Downey Jr. hasn’t signed on for ‘Iron Man 4,’ Chris Hemsworth will hang up his hammer after the contract, and everyone but Scarlett Johansson is gunning for a ‘Black Widow’ movie. With less screen time than his pals, Renner’s Hawkeye played the quiet assassin on both teams. And he’s been vocal about his character ever since. From rumors of leaving the franchise, to being disenchanted with his initial role, Renner’s been a Chatty Cathy from jump. And today we hear that he’s gunning for even less screen time for Hawkeye. So to speak. (more…)

The latest Deadpool movie announcement must have reinvigorated the fans of Dredd who want another Dredd Movie. If the fans of one long-delayed and tossed about hero can help get their crazy Merc with a Mouth to the big screen, why not slip in a Dredd sequel as well? Last year’s Day of Dredd was a successful campaign to drive Dredd up the list for DVD sales, rentals, and streaming downloads in hopes of nudging those in Hollywood with the power to make a Dredd sequel happen. Dredd fans hope to top last year’s results on October 1st, what can you do to help? (more…)

DC Made A Harley Quinn Comic Book That Smells Like What??

- 09-24-14Comics, WTF? Posted by Aspry Jones

HARLEY 1

Scratch-N-Sniff took off back in the 1970’s and had a good run for about a decade or so. It employed microfragrance technology that coated cardboard or stickers. When you scratched a certain spot and smelled it, you tended to pick up the advertised odor. I personally haven’t seen it around lately, but DC Comics is bringing back the concept for Harley Quinn Annual #1, with different scents for four different covers. Leather, suntan lotion, pizza and a “mystery smell.” It’s being packaged as a theme too – for instance, rub the leather on her outfit and you’ll smell the leather. For legal reasons, it’s being promoted as a “Rub-N-Smell” campaign and for some reason, that mystery smell is singled out for U.S. issue only. Can you guess what this smell might be? It’s a real “Brainstorm Haze,” so to speak… (more…)

You Knew It Was Coming – The ‘Supergirl’ Series Character Changes Have Begun

- 09-24-14Comics, Film, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

USE FIRST

When we first met Kara Zor El, she was drifting through space on Argo City, a broken off piece of the destroyed planet Krypton. If their homeworld blowing up wasn’t traumatic enough, the entire population started dying off from radiation poisoning. Kara’s dad pulled a Jor El move and sent her to Earth, saving her life. There, she spent her childhood mentoring under her cousin Superman, who was pulling a Batman move, training a kid for war. Eventually she’d put on a white t-shirt with an ‘S’ on it and fight the good fight as Supergirl. Somewhere down the road, CBS would adapt her story for television and make a few changes. Today’s question: what’s changing, exactly? (more…)

Is It All Over For [Redacted] on The ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’? & Mockingbird First Look!

*Insert Spoiler Warning Here. This is right were the second Spoiler Warning would have gone if we were going to put in another Spoiler Warning to warn those people who haven’t watched the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last night. I’d like to think it’s only a hand-full of busy parents, cave spelunkers, and the Amish, but we all know that our busy lives put a lot of us on different pages when it comes to when and how we watch our television shows. Suffice it to say that last night was an interesting episode and we saw what might be the last appearance of [REDACTED]. (more…)

TV REVIEW: ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ S2E1 – “Shadows”

- 09-24-14Comics, Featured, reviews Posted by Jason McAnelly

shieldfeature1

When Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. left off last season, everything was in chaos. H.Y.D.R.A. had basically destroyed S.H.I.E.L.D., Ward turned out to be a right bastard, Fitz was badly injured and Nick Fury stepped down, leaving poor Phil Coulson to pick up the mess of pieces. And while season 1 of the show started off with a whimper, it did manage to end with a bang. So will season 2 be able to keep up the momentum and be the television series that everyone wanted? If “Shadows” is a good indicator of what’s to come, the writers for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may be beginning to hone in on what the fans want. (more…)

Rob Liefeld’s Compelling Argument On ‘Deadpool’s’ Rating. Will It Be R Or PG-13?

- 09-23-14Comics, Film Posted by Aspry Jones

USE THIS FIRST

Rob Liefeld and I have an interesting relationship: he has no idea I exist and I have to accept that he invented Deadpool, one of the coolest comic book characters in history. Deadpool grew into something more amazing long after Liefeld moved on. But he still deserves the credit, just as he deserves props for creating Domino and Cable, among others. It hurts me to admit it, but the man has ideas. He just shouldn’t be drawing anything, ever, because he has zero understanding of human anatomy. He’ll draw Captain America with a little head and a massive chest. It also annoys me to admit that he makes great points concerning what rating the Deadpool movie might get. The internet is throwing chairs over the reported PG-13 rating. But there’s hope that we fans might actually get what we want after all. (more…)
