Maybe it’s just me, but I only know a handful of people who have adopted to next generation gaming. I know more people who are instead holding off on getting an X-Box One or Playstation 4 until better gaming titles are released. With the Holidays around the corner, there happens to be a slew of big titles coming. Titles that will undoubtedly push a few fence sitters over to fresher gaming pastures.  One of the biggest, most anticipated, and outright siiiiick looking titles – Batman Arkham Knight - was arguably the sole reason to buy a new system before the end of 2014.  Well, unfortunately, those who were ready to throw their money at the nearest Gamestop will have to wait. How long? I don’t think you wanna know. But, hey, there is some good news too! (more…)

- 09-09-14Comics, Film Posted by Rush Urbalejo

Ant-Man 2

After a tumultuous start, Ant-Man is coming sooner than it seems and there are still plenty of questions surrounding the MCU Phase 3 entry.  Will Evangaline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne take up the mantle of Wasp, now that the story has supposedly strayed from the material the movie is based on?  Will Corey Stoll’s Darren Cross give us a new incarnation of Yellowjacket that we will be happy to root against?  Will director Peyton Reed be able to give audiences a movie that is as wonderful and quirky as they were hoping to get from original director Edgar Wright?  How long will Michael Douglas’s Hank Pym don the Ant-Man costume before passing the torch to Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang?  We will probably have to wait a while to get the answers to most of these questions but thanks to a recent interview, Douglas has given all of us the answer to one of the biggest questions that surrounds the movie.

With the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on Blu-ray and DVD today, many fans of  Marvel Studios’ Avengers family of films are looking ahead to the future and are curious as to what  will be the focus of Captain America 3, set for a 2016 release. While we were originally promised an announcement at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con of the film’s subtitle, which might have provided an  indication of what the film’s storyline might be, the convention came and went with no clues to Cap’s future. However, the official Twitter page for Captain America  announced yesterday that a big announcement in honor of today’s Winter Soldier release. Could this be the Captain America 3 subtitle? (more…)

Rumor Central is broadcasting a doozy today, folks. Word has it that Warner Bros. is moving toward developing their own space movie now that Guardians Of The Galaxy has proven its power. Space is in now, and if you don’t copy Marvel’s every move jump on that interstellar bandwagon, no one will hear you get paid. Sure, DC Entertainment and friends can say that they’ve been planning this all along. All they had to do was drop a list of 9 unnamed projects through 2020 and fill them in with copies of whatever works for Marvel. In this case it sounds like they’re going for obscure-cosmic-ensemble-cast. Sound familiar? Well, wait until you hear what this project is! (more…)

‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 2 Deets And A Major Marvel Movie Guest Star!

- 09-08-14Comics, Film, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

USE THIS SCHIELD

The Marvel Cinematic Universe and its cohesion with television and film has its fine line, sure. But it’s also very impressive in how it manages to represent their coexistence effectively. Whether it’s making a TV star out of Agent Coulson, who was once just relegated to cameos, or dropping Sif or Maria Hill into episodes of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, we’re always reminded that the worlds do collide in harmony. Well, if it ain’t broke, don’t beat it with an Infinity Stone, I always say. And because Marvel listens to me (huh??) let’s be prepared for an interesting appearance in the new season of ‘Agents.’ And by interesting, I mean retro. If you guessed Captain America, you’d be wrong. Close…but wrong. (more…)

It could be argued that Robert Downey Jr. is as busy as billionaire Tony Stark, the Marvel Comics character who moonlights as the Avenger Iron Man that Downey, Jr. portrays on the big screen. For that  reason, it’s understandable that he might be reluctant to assemble with his fellow Avengers and play  Stark in future movies once his contractual obligations are finished.

While in Toronto promoting The Judge, his upcoming film with Robert Duvall that hits theaters next  month, Variety posed the question to Downey, Jr. whether a sequel to last year’s Iron Man 3. Fans  of Stark’s turn as one of the founding Avengers might feel like they’ve been hit in the gut with one of  Stark’s repulsor rays when they read his rely. (more…)
