If you haven’t really been paying much attention to the Internet lately then it may have slipped right by you that Ryan Reynolds is having the time of his life on Tim Miller‘s Deadpool set in Vancouver, Canada. If he’s not mugging for the camera or posting Happy Mother’s Day pictures like the one above, then he’s grabbing fans for selfies and shaking hands of people simply walking by the set. This time Reynolds has started up a verified Instagram account and posted a new all action Deadpool shot. (more…)

Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 10.55.24 AM

With the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel cinematic universe introduced two of Marvel comic book universe’s most iconic characters: Ultron, a genocidal android who just won’t die; and The Vision, a benevolent android who possesses more humanity than the humans he protects. The characters first appeared in the pages of The Avengers during a now legendary run by writer Roy Thomas and artist John Buscema in 1968. With his Silver Age characters now appearing on the silver screen almost 50 years later, Thomas talked about his creations in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. (more…)

Stan Lee is a ‘Lucky Man’ with New Series on UK TV

You’re 92 years old, you’re basically responsible for the creation of an entire comic book universe, and you’re more famous now than you’ve even been, what do you do for an encore? Well, if you’re Stan “The Man” Lee, you make a move into television. And not just the hoi polloi of American television, but the snooty, top shelf level of British television. It’s an interesting twist in the long career of Lee, who could basically live off the residuals generated by all his characters and their movies and TV series for the rest of his life, but I doubt retirement’s ever been in Lee’s vocabulary. Still, it’s an unusal move for Lee, but he’s always been a Lucky Man. (more…)

mallrats-reunion

There’s been a lot of news lately about the possibility of a second Mallrats movie. Back in 1995, Mallrats was the highly anticipated follow-up to Kevin Smith‘s big break, Clerks, but it ended up bombing. Horribly. It remained a black mark on Smith’s IMDb profile for some time, and then Cop Out was released. Kidding aside though, the film has been received more warmly by fans in the last 20 years, which undoubtedly helps Smith make a case for Mallrats 2. But that’s still about two years away at least, so what are Mallrats fans to do in the meantime. How about a reunion of some of the cast for a car commercial? No, I’m not drunk. (more…)

ThePrincessBride

The Princess Bride is an 80s classic in the same vein as The Goonies, Stand By Me and Flight of the Navigator – the kind of film  that can be watched time and time again, vicariously letting the nostalgia seep through. However, one thing that stands out with The Princess Bride is mere fact that repeat viewings are bound conjure up something new. Fan theories come, many justified, then nullified, and then they go, moving onto the next batch of theories in a perennial fashion. Which is why this particular fan theory stands out all the more, with a lovingly cryptic ending, blurring the lines of the outside world and the story that is read within the realm of the film itself.

BigHero6

Big Hero 6 hits theaters today and there is no question that the new superhero movie is every bit as Marvel as it is Disney, as you can tell from our spoiler-free review.  Besides being quality entertainment for pretty much anyone who isn’t made of wood, in keeping up with its siblings on both sides of the fence and in the name of Tradition, the feature boasts several blink-and-you’ll-miss-them Easter Eggs throughout the film.  While there are plenty to be found, we are just going to talk about the best 7 of the bunch and will leave some of the fun for you.  The movie itself is absolutely stellar and the animation will have you deeply immersed in the world of San Fransokyo, so if you are checking it out for the first time, I would highly recommend that you take the time to enjoy the movie, then search out those hard to find eggs on your second viewing but, hey, I’m not your mom!  By the way, spoilers aplenty follow, so now is the time to go back if you want to see the movie with a fresh eye.

So with Deadpool now definitely maybe coming soon to a theater near you, Liefeld talked about his involvement with the project to fans at Stan Lee’s Comikaze in Los Angeles this past weekend. And guess what? He’s a little bit excited about it. (more…)

chakra-the-invincible

Whatever you want to call Stan “The Man” Lee—innovator, genius, shameless self-promoter—there’s one word I think everyone could agree on to describe the co-creator of Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and scores of other characters: Prolific. After conquering the American superhero comic book world in both print and film, Stan has set his eyes on yet another country to make his superhero mark: India. That’s right, Stan Lee is tackling the India Cinescape with his superhero, Chakra the Invincible. (more…)
