After seeing how much ass he kicked in Captain America: Civil War, it’s no wonder why Marvel fans are craving to see his first Marvel Cinematic solo feature. After the sloppy, overstuffed mess that was The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we can certainly see why. Homecoming will certainly be an awseome way to kick off the 2017 summer movie season next May. Of course, what is any summer blockbuster without a high-speed hype train? In addition to Kevin Fiege promising a John Huges-style screenplay, the cast attached to it is pretty damn impressive as well. We’ve got Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as iron man, Marissa Tomei returning as the unexpectedly attractive Aunt May, Michael Keaton reportedly playing the Vulture (Finally! Birdman 4!), and even Childish Gambino himself playing a part. There are even some cast members that you may not have heard of, but are nonetheless welcome additions to the movie. (more…)

Marvel KF

With Captain America: Civil War kicking off Marvel’s Phase 3, Kevin Feige spoke with Entertainment Weekly on several subjects including Phase 4. On May 6, 2016 the 13th movie of the Marvel Studio’s franchise hits theaters. Only 11 movies are slated for the third phase including Thor:Ragnarok, Black Panther and Avengers Infinity War Part 1 and 2. One big question still loom on the horizon;  when will Marvel Studios make Inhumans? Currently Inhumans are part of Agents of Shield’s main plot and Marvel Studios might be waiting for the TV show to finish their scripts. You can find a full listing of all Phase 3 movies here. Kevin hints at what’s in store for Phase 4. (more…)

Shirley Temple was America’s sweetheart, Cheryl Cole was the UK’s sweetheart, and as of this weekend, Deadpool is the world’s sweetheart. His transition to the big screen was so unfathomably successful that nobody (including us) can stop talking about him. After years of having a massive following among comic book fans, the Merc with a Mouth has officially crossed over into mainstream popularity with his first feature length film. Just look at how the character’s trending popularity literally skyrocketed after his movie came out. (more…)

After years of hype, more hype and the occasional production hiccup, Garth Ennis’ magnum opus Preacher finally gets a premiere screening date for SXSW 2016. For those unfamiliar with the work, Preacher was a limited series comic book published by Vertigo and it featured the raunchy misadventures of Jesse Custer (superpowered ex-Preacher extraordinaire), Tulip (jilted ex with a handcanon) and Cassidy (fiction’s best-worst vampire). The series used its gratuitous amounts of violence, sexual innuendo and pitch-black humor to answer such questions as: ‘what is the responsibility of God to man and vice versa’ and ‘does absolute power corrupt absolutely, if you aren’t an utter bastard’?

So comic book fans, rejoice! Garth Ennis mega-fans…curb your enthusiasm. Because apparently, the TV adaptation is not going to be the kind of show you were looking for…

When discussing Max Bemis, chances are that comics aren’t the first things that come to mind. Bemis first burst onto the pop-punk music scene in 2000 as the lead singer of the still active band Say Anything, and it was in his songwriting, producing endeavors that his attention primarily stayed. Recently however, his focus has shifted a bit. Starting in 2013, Bemis decided to make a go at writing and creating comic books. As eye-roll inducing as it can be when established stars try a new trade (actors or athletes putting out albums can be quite cringe-worthy), there are some things about Max that hint his foray into the comic world could leave us expecting truly great things to come.

Image Comics has been slaying the comic game as of late. Created by seven of Marvel Comics’ best selling artists, Image has been producing comics and graphic novels since 1992, and now stands as the 3rd largest comics publisher in the United States. (Facts obtained from ImageComics.com). You’ve no doubt heard their name before, being as they produce The Walking Dead comics that the hit AMC show is based off of. I’m going to give you some lesser-known, relatively newer titles you might want to use as a starting point to dip your toe into the pool that is Image Comics (and possibly spur your next obsession).

Valiant 6

Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Black Widow, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Spider-Man, Aunt May…These are only a few names of characters with which you are no doubt familiar.  They represent some of the biggest names in comic books and if you haven’t seen them on the big screen yet, you will definitely be seeing them soon.  Now, how about Ninjak? Archer & Armstrong? Bloodshot?  Toyo Harada or Peter Stanchek?  Chances are that if you aren’t a fan of comic books, you may not know any of those names but thanks to a new deal reached between Valiant Entertainment and DMG Entertainment (co-producers of Iron Man 3 and Looper) you will likely know those names very soon.  Through the new deal, some of Vailant’s best characters are about to get some major screen time.
