We Are Groot (But Also Howard The Duck)

26 April 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As we look back at what came before ‘Iron Man,’ we marvel at the miracle that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Earlier this week, the Fsr team brainstormed the plot of Avengers 4 based on the idea that its mysterious subtitle was a potential spoiler for the still unseen Avengers: Infinity War. It was a fun exercise that briefly allowed me to nerd out over a few spandex epics penned by personal favorites, Brian Michael Bendis and Jonathan Hickman. The resulting conversation spawned some excitement, and a good heap of cynicism as well…or better yet, apathy. How much further can the Marvel Cinematic Universe expand? Will Thanos ever sit up from his chair, and prove he’s the big bad Mad Titan comic book fanboys claim him to be? Next week, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will mark the 15th entry in Marvel’s unprecedented shared universe machine, and by the time we get to Avengers »

More "Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2"

21 April 2017 6:24 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more new footage, plus images from director James Gunn's "Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2", on the news that "Rocky" actor Sylvester Stallone portrays Marvel Comics character 'Starhawk' aka 'Stakar of the House of Ogord', a high-ranking member of the 'Ravagers', in the new Marvel Studios feature:

Starhawk was created by writer Steve Gerber of "Howard The Duck" fame and illustrator Sal Buscema, as an anti-hero in the 'Earth-691' timeline of the Marvel Comics universe.

"...'Stakar' was fated to eventually re-inhabit his infant body, reliving his life over countless times. Because of the knowledge of things to come, he manipulated events to affect what he felt would be the best outcome, referring to himself as 'One Who Knows'. 

"He made many enemies in doing so, but his tampering and guidance also led to the formation of the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' in the 31st Century. »

Man-Thing #1, the comic book debut of Goosebumps author R.L. Stine, proved to be a one of a kind book for Marvel. Much less interested in fitting in with the house style, it was largely a homage to the horror comics of decades gone by. This second issue follows on in much the same spirit, with all Stine’s usual black humour and love of pulpy horror. Somehow, though, it ends up being even weirder than the opening issue.

After coming face to face with himself on the streets of Burbank, Man-Thing is teleported away back to his swamp in the Everglades. But with vulture, bat and snake attacks coming from all around, and a reunion with his lost love Lily-Ann Millard, something is very amiss. Could it be that the whole of reality is threatened and that »
