And another domino tumbles down. We all knew that this was coming but what is interesting is the one movie that isn't on the list. According to The Hollywood Reporter Disney has decided to delay the release of three movies; Mulan, The New Mutants and Antlers. This comes after Disneyland itself has announced closure for the rest […]
Just got out of seeing a morning showing of Spider-Man: Far From Home – and because I'm in London, it wasn't far from my home. And good to see SHIELD spying on the entire city from the Shard… But forget about this chocolate-box American tourist trip to Europe, the question is, are there mid-credits, post-credits […]
I've been getting more and more into board games lately — especially ones tied to literary characters. I've picked up the Dresden Files cooperative card game, the Mistborn game, and I've ordered the Re-Animator game. The same guys who did Re-Animator, Lynnvander Studios, are working with Dynamite Entertainment again on another Kickstarter game, this time […]
It launched with a bang! But Slam, the roller derby-themed comic by Pamela Ribon and Veronica Fish has been getting later and later. Issue 4 came out in February but nothing since. Now issues 5, 6.7 and 8 have all been cancelled by the publisher, Boom! Studios, with the promise that they will return at […]
DC Comics' June solicitations are being hidden from view until WonderCon. But they are not the only publisher playing peekaboo. Boom! Studios have a listing for June for something they are calling "To Be Announced At Wondercon" shipping with the first of the DC Rebirth titles on the 1st June for $3.99. And that, right […]
If Marvel Studios makes a film, all the Marvel Comics employees have a private screening together of the new movie. If Sony make a Marvel film, the same happens. If Fox makes a Marvel film… it doesn't happen. Bad feeling precludes it. But this goes further back that the last couple of years, I'm told […]
BOOM! STUDIOS JOYRIDE #1 (W) Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly (A/CA) Marcus To Whats to Love: After working together on Hacktivist and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials original graphic novel, the writing duo of Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (Batman and Robin Eternal) join forces once again with artist Marcus To (New Warriors, The Flash: Season […]
Joe and Anthony Russo were at the Big Marvel Announcement today in Los Angeles. As was Joss Whedon. As was Kevin Feige. They even had an organist. And why? Announcement time. Civil War? Official on Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange? A Captain Marvel film? A Marvel Studios Spider-Man film? Time to find out. Marvel are announcing […]
Featuring Klaus the goldfish.
Days before the news of Guardians Of The Galaxy film broke, we ran the story that Marvel had filed new trademarks for the property and speculated that may be for a movie… Now Marvel have placed a rash of new trademark filings for the phrase IRON PATRIOT, such as this one. We had seen earlier […]
Kevin Feige puts The Avengers into the context of the bigger Marvel movie-verse.
It is by no means their only movie production. Dylan Dog is coming to DVD and Blu Ray, there is some legacy impact from Men In Black III and there are options on a number of projects, as well as a number of Cowboys & Aliens games But the Cowboys & Aliens movie was Platinum […]
Boom recently solicited the final issues of Darkwing and Duck Tales for October, series that had been praised when originally published. Less so now. Especially when the most recent issue appears to have been cut and pasted together from of clip art. Here's an example with some of the more obvious reusing of artwork. Well, […]
I was lucky enough to see the non-3D version of THOR at my local cinema. With THOR being the fourth movie from Marvel Studios, after IRON MAN, HULK and IRON MAN 2, a certain consistence in quality of their movies is starting to emerge. I couldn't help thinking they've all had more or less the […]
Don't panic! Here's a new promotional doodad that should help you navigate Kenneth Branagh's Thor even if you don't know where your towel is. Or at least lay out the basics, like a babel fish that can't help spouting the obvious. Actually, I could probably fill in a few blanks here, but I'm under embargo. […]
Or Chris Hemsworth's if that's what floats your boat. Clothes that the pair wore during the making of the Thor movie, available in teeny tiny sections for huge amounts of money. How would the world cope without Upper Deck Entertainment?
I recently had the good fortune to find a confidential document regarding the financial plans and predictions for Radical Publishing from September 2010. Good fortune for me, that is. Not Radical, who made a number of legal threats to stop me from writing anything about the document and accusations about its origin. I happened to […]
