10 Reasons Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man Owns Tobey Maguire’s

19 October 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

The Amazing Spider-Man series may have its critics, but there’s one thing few can argue against and that’s the casting of Andrew Garfield as our hero Peter Parker. A fairly unknown actor at the time whose only real role of note was in David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’, it was considered a huge risk by Sony to cast him for the lead in a film where in the age of Blockbusters critical acclaim means little to studios without the box office success to back it up.

“Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity, Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man.”

Two films later, and we couldn’t agree with Marc Webb’s words more. Garfield burst onto the scene with a fresh, »

Monster Mashup: X-Men #40

17 October 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

X-Men #40

Written by Roy Thomas

Pencilers: Don Heck

Inkers: George Tuska

Letterers: Artie Simek

Editor: Stan Lee


Because the characters exist in the public domain, there have been countless comic book iterations of classic horror icons Dracula and Frankenstein, including “official” versions of both characters which exist within the respective Marvel and DC Universes, versions which interact with each company’s superheroes. But through the years, those heroes have also encountered and battled one-off iterations of the horror monsters, independent of the “main” characterization.

One of the earliest such examples is X-Men #40. While Marvel would eventually introduce Frankenstein’s Monster to their universe with 1973′s The Monster of Frankenstein #1 (the first four issues of which essentially adapt Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein), the creature made an appearance of sorts years earlier, in the January 1968 issue of X-Men.

Long before they were a sales juggernaut starring in multiple comic books »

Stan Lee is back with another wonderful rant that will make you think. The latest Stan's Rants episode is called "Superhero Potty Talk," and he goes off on how superheroes never seem to have to go to the bathroom. Only Stan could get away with a web-series like this. If anyone else ranted about the things that he does no one would listen. The guy is always entertaining. 

You can catch up on some of his previous rants that we've previously posted such as superhero ice cream bars, long movie credits, Facing Front, and 3D movies. Enjoy the rants of Stan!

Guardians Of The Galaxy TV show will hit Disney Xd next year

12 October 2014 11:57 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Guardians Of The Galaxy are coming to kids’ TV, presumably with less swearing and Jackson Pollock jokes…

The existence of a kids’ TV version of Guardians Of The Galaxy has been known about since last year. Now, we have a few more tentative details.

It’s not much to go on, but we now know that Disney Xd will definitely host the show, and that it will land on our screens in 2015.

A view of the show is gradually coming together though, considering we already knew that it will be set after the events of James Gunn’s film, will feature the same line-up of Guardians, and give a prominent role to McU big bad Thanos, aka The Mad Titan.

Under the banner of Marvel Animation, the show has a lot of experienced talent involved in producer capacities including Joe Quesada, Jeph Loeb and Stan Lee.

Will Avengers 2 Introduce the Black Panther?

10 October 2014 9:01 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »


Although the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron is already rather large, with three new heroes (Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and the Vision) joining the original six members, there’s a possibility that the Black Panther may make an appearance as well.



Marvel executives have shown some enthusiasm for introducing the Black Panther to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although there are no confirmed plans for a film about him just now, the site Moviepilot points out that one of the shooting locations for Avengers: Age of Ultron was in South Africa, where the Avengers are supposed to battle some Hydra baddies. This has led some to speculate that we might see the fictional nation Wakanda where Prince T’Challa, the Black Panther, rules.


There’s another reason for the belief that we’ll be visiting Wakanda in the film. In the preview footage of Age of Ultron shown at Comic-Con, we »
