The upcoming Guardians of The Galaxy animated series has nothing to do, story wise, with the movie-verse. Still its the same rag tag crew of space bound misfits teaming up to save the universe from itself. If the following clip is any indication, this series will reveal more backstory about our characters than the feature film did.

The clip in questions sees Peter Quill (Will Friedle) meeting the Ravager, Yondu for the first time!  (more…)

GQ chose Amy Schumer for their annual Comedy Issue which featured a photo layout of Schumer mixed into the Star Wars Universe. It was a hot post last week, with a lot of mixed reactions from fans. Disney came out later with a Twitter statement labeling the photo shoot as an inappropriate use of their characters that they: didn’t approve, participate in, or condone. GQ also asked Schumer to design her own GQ cover shot and include her own cover lines for the articles inside her comedic imaginary GQ cover issue. (more…)

Ever since the announcement that Sony and Disney/Marvel will be working together to create a new incarnation of Spider-Man – one that will bring him into the already established Marvel Cinematic Universe – people have been pretty excited. There have been casting announcements, a director has been chosen and now we’re one step closer with the addition of a pair of screenwriters. So who will be in charge of regurgitating Peter Parker and his rogue’s gallery for the third time in the last 15 years? Two people, in fact, have been chosen – John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein. (more…)

Marvel vs DC

Regardless of how you feel about either comic company, there is no denying that Marvel‘s properties are, by a significant margin, more successful at the box office as of now. Love for these movies continues to be shown through incredible box office receipts for everything they release, and that’s not looking to let up any time soon with even the more risky Ant-Man film tracking to break the $500 million worldwide mark. Still, it may be unwise to discount DC‘s box office power considering the massive success of Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. So, with WB finally launching a proper cinematic universe for DC’s characters, one would think that Disney and Marvel are sweating the true competition a little, right? Perhaps not if a recent statement from Disney’s CEO is to be believed.  (more…)

Star Wars

Just when you thought it was safe to hope that this year’s San Diego Comic Con wasn’t going to be underwhelming… With a number of big studios and production companies bowing out of this year’s festivities, all hope for awesome things was pegged on the ones who are coming to play. One of them is Warner Bros., who will – presumably – be bringing loads of goodies from Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. The other hope – oddly enough – was Star Wars. With Hall H Marvel-less this year, all eyes turned to J.J. Abrams et al to make those nerd eyes water with anticipation. And yet, we have to report, that your expectations are going to have to be modulated somewhat. (more…)

Nintendo-Characters

It appears that our great disappointment over the misinformation about The Legend of Zelda’s Netflix series may soon be put to rest with a possible new project. During Nintendo‘s 75th annual shareholder’s meeting, where all of the top Nintendogs try to convince their investors that they’re still awesome, CEO Satoru Iwata dropped some intriguing nuggets about the company’s non-gaming future. This could indeed be another sign of the Disney-Nintendo partnership rumor we recently reported here, lending credence to the story. No full translation of the meeting is available for our greedy eyes just yet, but Iwata was still quoted confirming those plans.  (more…)
