RIP Steve Ditko – 7 Unsung Characters

 

This weekend we mourn the loss of one of the comic book industries greats. Steve Ditko died at the age of 90. Working on both Marvel and DC throughout the years, Ditko partnered up to co-create some of histories greatest characters that almost everyone has heard of. Heroes like Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, villains like Green Goblin and Dormammu. He even gave us supporting characters that would go on to take some of the spotlights like Wong, Clea, Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson. But are there others that don’t get as much limelight? Here’s a list of 7 great Ditko created characters that don’t get enough recognition.

Screen Junkies are at it again this time giving Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Doctor Strange the Honest Trailer Treatment. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel when it comes to Marvel origin movies. Marvel has a set path and follows it to success every time, just be like Iron Man without being like Iron Man. Watch the video below and you’ll see what we’re talking about. (more…)

Doctor Strange, the most recent installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has certainly left its mark. Now up for an Oscar for Visual Effects, it has earned its place among its better known partner films. In anticipation of the film’s DVD/Bluray release date, Marvel Studios has released a teaser for the Doctor Strange gag reel. It’s as funny as one would expect.

Check it out below:  (more…)

2016’s massive hit, Captain America: Civil War, saw some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most powerful players knock each other about in a fight of epic proportions! Of course, the two heaviest hitters who have found fame on the silver screen: Thor and the Hulk were nowhere to be seen. . To explain his absence, Marvel dropped Team Thor in the summer pairing up the God of Thunder with his roommate, Darryl Jacobson, and as luck would have it, the pair may be reuniting soon.  (more…)

Doctor Strange was a huge hit for Marvel Studios back in November, and that’s good because Marvel was in desperate need for a hit. Hah! Of course, they aren’t. Doctor Strange was the latest in a long line of successes for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as it was expected to be, so when next might we see the good doctor? Surely another Marvel hero could use a hand in a mystic arts matter in the near future, right? Well, it turns out you’re correct. Dr. Strange will be appearing in a Marvel movie in 2017, and you can probably guess which one it is. (more…)

‘Doctor Strange’ Breaks Marvel Solo Record

Doctor Strange has just broken Marvel’s box office record, having earned a staggering $616 million worldwide (according to Box Office Mojo). It has topped The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Thor, and is now Marvel Cinematic Universe’s highest grossing solo intro film since Iron Man. This is particularly impressive for a film whose main character was not necessarily that well-known before the film was released, unless perhaps you were a studious comic book reader. Marvel and Disney must be pretty happy right now.

The most recent Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie has already scored $85 million for its first weekend. Although it did not the previous MCU record set by Thor: The Dark World (which was $85.7 million), it’s still doing better than expected, and that doesn’t even count its global box office.

Nerd Bastards own Mel Valentin sure seemed to like Doctor Strange, but as the saying goes, “you can’t please everyone,” and it takes a special kind of bizarre disposition to look at a movie like Doctor Strange and label it “abhorrent.” That’s not a statement of quality though, that’s the way one critic is labeling the subject matter of Doctor Strange, a movie about a surgeon that takes up a new career in the exciting field of fighting extra-dimensional monsters and protecting the fabric or reality. Or as Dr. Ted Baehr calls it, “a dangerous introduction to demonic occult deception.” (more…)
