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…)

Spider-Man

Oh, man, Spider-Man fans, is your Spidey Sense tingling?  It looks like fans of the comic book favorite may have just been treated to an early present.  One of the toughest things about producing a movie in the Digital Age is that very few things that the filmmakers have tried to keep secret remain secret.  With Suicide Squad, for example, unofficial photos were being posted daily, most of them very obviously being cell phone photos.  Considering the audiences’ excitement for Marvel’s take on Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, it is a bit surprising that fans haven’t heard more about the character, especially with The Russo Brothers filming Captain America: Civil War, in which the web-slinger is rumored to play a part.  Well, it looks like things are finally changing a bit as we now have an unofficial cast list that may shed some light on where Spider-Man’s next stand-alone movie may be heading.

Smcostume

From a black suit, web armor, a brown paper bag, and many other costumes, Spider-Man has gone through more wardrobe changes than most. Regardless of his ever revolving attire, it’s that classic red and blue costume that is synonymous with the character. That motif has seen a number of variations in both comics and film. The best realized is arguably the suit Andrew Garfield wore in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We won’t get to see that suit again of course, as we have a new Spider-Man in Tom Holland, who’ll be appearing under the Marvel banner in Captain America: Civil War. With this being yet another Spider-Man reboot in under 5 years, one has to wonder if Marvel will go with a radically different design. A supposed tweet from the films directors has implied that is the case. And now a user on Reddit seems to confirm the completely different design. (more…)

Spider-Man getting out of Sony’s deathgrip and coming back to Marvel was all fans ever really wanted. Now that he’s back in Marvels loving bosom, there is much dissent and loathing from fans at the prospect of a new film. Jon Watts got the gig to direct a new Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland cast as ole’ web head, and no one fan seems too excited about it. Fans got what they wanted and they’re unhappy about it, at least going by Internet chatter anyway. Given there’s been 5 Spider-Man movies in the last 10 or so years, with the last two being a botched rebootening, its understandable that fans are hesitant to welcome Spidey back to theaters. It does feel like only yesterday that Andrew Garfield was announced as the new Spider-Man.

Director Jon Watts certainly has a challenge selling fans on another cinematic Spidey adventure, but he’s taking it head-on. In a recent Interview withEW, he’s said some words that may be assuring to fanboys. Additionally, USA Today talked to Spider-Man screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein about the film, as well regarding the tonality and little something about the characters origin. (more…)

Hey, why isn’t Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin on Twitter?  Because he’s already killed all 140 characters, that’s why!  Ah-ha, that’s my favorite internet joke.  But seriously, Martin has never been shy about letting his opinions be known, and he recently took to his blog to wax poetic about his displeasure with the current crop of bad guys being portrayed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
