- 07-19-14Comics, Film Posted by Brandon Marcus

Marvel

Summer is time for relaxing, napping a lot and doing very little. But not if you’re Marvel Studios. For the people who brought you The Avengers, Iron Man and the upcoming Guardians of the GalaxySummer is just as busy as any other season – even busier.

Comic Con is less than a week away but Marvel is looking far, far ahead of that. In fact, Marvel is looking five years into the future. You and I might not have plans beyond next weekend but these guys are already planting their flags in several high profile weekends. Get out your calendar and take a look at what Marvel has planned in through 2019.  (more…)

New Captain America Announced on Colbert Report – Surprises No One

- 07-17-14Comics Posted by Leo Johnson

New Cap

While the recent news of Thor being replaced by a female Thor caused quite a stir in the comic community, the way it was announced was definitely more odd, as it was Whoopi Goldberg breaking the story on The View rather than any major comic news site. Now, Marvel has set up another seemingly big announcement, but this time on The Colbert Report, which has a bit better link to the comic community. Colbert himself has appeared in a comic, has a replica of Captain America’s shield as set dressing, and has even chatted with Joe Quesada a few times, so the show is a decent pick for an announcement of this kind.

New ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Extended Trailer Drops Like A Cherry Bomb

- 07-08-14Comics, Film Posted by Aspry Jones

guardian-of-the-galaxy-poster

Right off the bat, I’m going to say that this is fantastic. We’ve seen other Guardians of the Galaxy trailers before, and they’ve all been cool enough to make us jump on board. This one in particular has us not only jumping on the ship but also holding guns to the heads of usurpers out to make us stop. Nothing can make us stop. Not the true fans. Pirate this, b*tch! We are in it for the long haul ladies and gentlemen, and for once in our lives let us smell what the Captain is cooking and just ride along like we’re supposed to.  Am I saying we should just love what Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is doing here? Yes. Love it immediately. On top of the fact that director James Gunn and Marvel are premiering finished footage in finished screenings to the first-come-first-served group, we have this new piece all set to go. And why? They didn’t need to do it. Call it fan service, plain and simple. Just say Yes Please and relax your hand. (more…)

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Halloween Costumes Will Give You Nightmares

- 07-07-14Comics, Film Posted by Brandon Marcus

Guardians

Halloween is supposed to be scary but a new batch of Guardians of the Galaxy costumes being prepped for October are beyond frightening. They are…disturbing. There’s something about the eyes in these photos. Something human and sad and enslaved. Just look at the picture above. But don’t look too long, otherwise you may lose your soul to that…thing claiming to be Groot.

But there’s more. Oh, there is much more. Over here, in the dark. (more…)

Two New Writers Hired To Fix Marvel’s Broken ‘Ant-Man’

- 07-07-14Comics, Film Posted by Aspry Jones

It seemed like a storybook romance: Fan favorite director Edgar Wright was going to bring his beloved Ant-Man project to life, and the growing Marvel Cinematic Universe was supposed to be the better for it. When that relationship fell through because of control issues Wright apparently wasn’t willing to give up, we’ve read nothing but taboo reports about the awkward enterprise. With Wright’s exit, so went cinematographer Bill Pope. Enter Adam McKay to write the movie Marvel wants. You may know him from the hit-and-miss Anchorman series and such short films as A Public Statement from Anthony Weiner’s Penis. Now, before you go questioning his action movie chops, keep in mind that the movie is supposed to be funny too. He’s got history with star Paul Rudd and an aptitude for writing comedy. But how’s the script? It might be a problem that Marvel is working tirelessly to fix…

New Travel Site Further Introduces Moviegoers To The Worlds Of ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

I’m not much for viral movie marketing. Ever since The Dark Knight basically set the standard with its grim demands of search and discover detective work, I’ve snottily scoffed at the paltry efforts of movies trying to entice me through the internet. If you’re not even going to try measuring up to the craziness of that Joker fest, just go back to Mad Men school and learn how it’s done. Another fantastic promo plan that comes to mind was Tropic Thunder’s amazing fake movie trailers. I never wanted a pretend movie to be real like I did with Ben Stiller’s Simple Jack. When you put that kind of effort into your marketing campaign, I tend to think you’re dedicated to making an excellent movie. Today, I got that warm feeling again…with Guardians of the Galaxy (more…)

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack – Music To Get Shot By Raccoons To [UPDATE: LISTEN NOW]

- 07-02-14Comics, Film Posted by Aspry Jones

unnamed-1

The Guardians Of The Galaxy has always been an ecclectic comic, and it sure as hell looks like an eccentric movie. Few of us have read through those pages and thought “I bet ‘Addicted To Love‘ would fit in great during this aerial dog-fight.” This is a series that intrinsically begs for Weird Al Yankovich and They Might Be Giants on its soundtrack. Yet neither are anywhere to be found.  (more…)

And we’re back… from a slightly less lengthy break this time (we have to slowly ramp up your dosage or you’ll be overcome with sexual urges). Do you like robot love, comic book movies, Harrison Ford‘s body parts, Steven Seagal and Scooby Doo? Good for you, because we’re talking all about those things and more on RadioBastard!

Also, do you like details? You’re in luck! Here’s something close to that… sort of!

Tim Story Has Some Regrets RE: His ‘Fantastic Four’ Movies

- 06-19-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

fantastic_four_cast

Josh Trank‘s all-new, all-different Fantastic Four hits theaters everywhere next year, exactly 10 years after the first time a major Hollywood studio tried to make Marvel’s First Family, if not an Avengers level chart smasher then at least an X-Men par hit movie. But it wasn’t either. Despite getting enough grease to warrant a sequel, Tim Story‘s two Fantastic Four movies remain a giant example of what not to do when adapting a comic book into a film. But seriously, how does Story feel about his movies 10 years after the fact? Let’s ask him. (more…)
