Howard replaced directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller on this Star Wars Story in June when they were fired despite the fact that reportedly there were just a few weeks left in production, so Howard had to carry on, carry over, and carry under all those fan expectations in the wake of such surprising and disappointing news. But you know what? He says don’t worry.  (more…)

Marvel and Netflix To Up Their TV Game In 2017

Marvel’s cinematic universe has an angsty, brooding cousin on television. While the MCU flits about with interdimensional beings, ancient gods and big green men in torn shorts, the TV world of Marvel prefers to hang around in dark alleys, flipping coins and biting toothpicks. With the arrival of The Defenders later this month, Marvel will tie some of its most compelling on-screen characters together into a single storyline, and truly establish its TV output as a universe in its own right. However, might they have bitten off more than they can chew? (more…)

There could be no greater compliment for an actor than to be told by a writer that if he knew you would play the part so well he would have never killed you off. Mike Mignola said that of the late great John Hurt and his portrayal of  Professor Trevor “Broom” Bruttenholm in the Guillermo del Toro adaptation of Hellboy in 2004.

Rian Johnson is wrapping up work on Star Wars: The Last Jedi as we speak, and work has already begun on the next chapter, the as-yet untitled Star Wars: Episode IX, which will be overseen by the steady hands of Jurassic World helmer Colin Trevorrow. Now, Episode IX has already had its share of challenges, primarily the untimely passing of Carrie Fisher, which may be why Trevorrow has decided to farm out some of the writing work to a new set of fingers and his keyboard.  (more…)

Transformers: The Last Knight sort of came and went at the box office earlier this summer, and has barely made $500 million at the worldwide box office, or about half as much as Transformers: Age of Extinction made during its run in 2014. That’s probably not a good place to be as you’re looking to expand your film franchise into spin-off movies, but time marches on, and so does the first of planned Transformers cinematic universe in the form of Bumblebee. Based on the yellow sports car that’s been a main character in all the Transformers movies so far, the stage is set for “Bee” to ride solo, and in a familiar form. (more…)

So you work at Marvel Comics, and it’s a pretty sweet gig as you get to fill the world with wonderful, adventurous, and colourful comics and characters. So after a hard week at work, it might make sense for you to relax with some coworkers on a Friday afternoon in July by enjoying a milkshake. You deserve it! Well this innocent moment, shared on social media, seemed to make a lot of deeply disturbed people angry, and they shared that anger with said Marvel editor? Why?
