So today (Sunday, which is yesterday), Editor Mike sent me a link to a column on The Jewish Daily Forward’s website which asks the question “Do Marvel Movies Have An Anti-Semitic Problem?” – which also happens to be the dumbest article I’ve ever read on their site.
Granted, The Forward – which was born way back in 1867 as a Yiddish language daily newspaper published by dissidents from the Socialist Labor Party – is a left-leaning paper whose heart and soul is the Jewish-American experience, with strong ties to Israel, and its articles are purposely written with that audience as its primary target. And granted, The Forward has not been the only news media outlet that has noted and remarked upon the recent rebirth of overt and increasingly violent anti-Semitism around the globe, especially in Europe. And yes, The Forward should be praised in its unadulterated and unabridged journalism that consistently calls out the perpetrators. »

“Just because someone stumbles and loses their path, doesn’t mean they’re lost forever.” Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. For months, that actually feel like weeks, I have promised to reveal my take on the popular Marvel Comic book, X-Men. With school work rising to an all-time high, the pitch took a backseat to far more important things, such as wood-work and badminton. Anyway, alas, I have returned to my MacBook Air, and have decided to reveal my take on the controversial Marvel characters. Now, before we begin, let it be known that I am a huge fan of what 20th Century Fox is doing with X-Men property, and that this is just my own take. Children Of The Atom When it came down to revamping this concept, I decided to go back to it’s original material. The X-Men were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, as »
At the time of writing, Marvel have not yet confirmed a third standalone Hulk movie, but without giving anything away, the closing events of Avengers: Age of Ultron definitely leave that door wide open. With that in mind, it seems like the perfect time to re-appraise ol' greenskin's first big screen outing, Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama, Hulk.
Released in 2003, Hulk took a total of $132.2 million at the Us box office, just short of its reputed £137 million budget. Though it eventually took over $245 million worldwide, it was perceived as a flop, significantly under-performing compared to the likes of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man or Bryan Singer's X-Men movies. Hulk not box-office Smash, in other words. Critics weren't overly kind either – it earned 62% on review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, indicating decidedly mixed reviews albeit with a positive slant.
If we've learnt one thing this morning, it's that the plural of synopsis is synopses. We did, however, also get a few clues about the next seasons of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter thanks to their new synopses. We still think synopsi sounds better, though.
Naturally, if you're not up-to-date with either show, these cast-mentioning synopses will spoil the surprise of which characters survive their respective finales. Consider yourselves warned, then.
Here's the synopsis for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3, to start with...
"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for a dynamic, action-packed third season, as Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) embarks on a deadly new secret mission to protect the world from new threats in the wake of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s wars with Hydra and a rogue faction of Inhumans."

Confusingly, the follow-up to the 1995 comedy will be called MallBrats, as announced by the cult filmmaker on social media.

Comics legend and professional cameo artist Stan Lee has confirmed that he will be back in a bigger role for the sequel.
Details of MallBrats remain light, although the film will apparently deal with the destruction of the mall. »
It took 20th Century Fox 14 years, but with last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, they finally delivered the movie that X-Men fans had been impatiently waiting for since 2000. Now, in 2015, Fox hopes to revive their other, more desperate, superhero franchise with this summer’s Fantastic Four. Using the same apocalyptic tones and brooding masochism made famous by Bryan Singer’s X-Men, Fox is hoping that their third go-around with the oft-troubled franchise will prove to be the charm. But, based on the failures of previous Fantastic Four films, the barrage of trailers and press releases for the new flick, and the entire history of the comic book series, Fantastic Four may inevitably be doomed from the start.
As a series, The Fantastic Four has proven to be one of Marvel’s more inconsequential title to readers, as well as one of its most inaccessible to writers. Ever since »

Kevin Smith is making good on his promise to deliver Mallrats 2 as his next film, announcing today that the first draft of the screenplay is finished and that the official title of the movie is MallBrats. While the writer/director didn't offer any new plot details, the title surely hints that the original characters will be bringing some of their children into the mix this time around. The filmmaker also used this moment to remember original Mallrats producer Jim Jacks. He says:
"20 years in the making. 113 pages fulla old friends & new jokes. This is for you, Jim. Wish you were here. #MallBrats"
Jim Jacks had always wanted to make a sequel to the original Mallrats. Saldy, he passed away a little over a year ago. His untimely death helped motivate and push to see the film become a reality. At this time, the sequel does not have a release date. »
Smith plans to shoot MallBrats later this year for an expected release in 2016, and has so far confirmed that Jason Lee, Jeremy London, Jason Mewes, Shannen Doherty, Ethan Suplee, Joey Lauren Adams, Renee Humphrey, , Claire Forlani, Michael Rooker, Sven-Ole Thorsen, Brian O’HalloranBryan Johnson, Walt Flanagan, Scott Mosier and Stan Lee will all be back.

Scarlett Johansson Oscar dress Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway. Scarlett Johansson movies Scarlett Johansson has been featured in more than 40 films since her debut at age 10 in Rob Reiner's North, back in 1994. Johansson, in fact, »

In typical Marvel fashion, Avengers: Age of Ultron paid tribute to decades’ worth of comic book storylines in the form of Easter eggs peppered throughout the film. While some are easy to spot – like the requisite Stan Lee cameo – others are buried so deep that only the most diehard of fans could catch them.
No matter what camp you’re in, you can now enjoy the cleverness of Joss Whedon and bask in the geekiness of the hidden gems thanks to a new video from Mr. Sunday Movies. Comprehensive and informative, it breaks down all (or at least most) of the easter eggs found in Age of Ultron, while shedding some light on the various seeds Whedon planted inside the blockbuster that will help set up future McU installments, like Captain America: Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok and, of course, both Avengers: Infinity War installments.

The Vision was one of a cavalcade of new characters that were introduced in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. And with his flowing cape, bright red skin and kick-ass new powers, he has instantly become a fan favorite amongst Marvel fans. It turns out though that there is one man who originally had a slight problem with The Vision: a certain Stan Lee. Stan Lee helped to create the character of The Vision alongside Roy Thomas and John Buscema ahead of his debut in issue 57 of The Avengers, which was released in October 1968. And Thomas has now explained to The Hollywood Reporter that when he originally brought his vision of The Vision to Stan Lee, the iconic comic-book writer immediately spotted a problem with it. Thomas said: Stan hated the color of The Vision. ‘Why’d you make him red? Red’s not a good color! But Thomas »
