Stan Lee's Lucky Man review – James Nesbitt's superpowers are stretched to the max

21 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Jimmy N gives it his all in the return of the hammy, magical crime-fighting caper

Ah yes, Stan Lee’s Lucky Man (Sky1). It’s a bit like The Professionals – if they were in the pages of a Marvel comic.

James Nesbitt’s Di Harry Clayton fights crime in London with the help of an ancient oriental bronze bracelet given to him by a mysterious woman after a night of passion. It brings him the power to control luck. But it also brings something bad to counterbalance that luck. So in the first series, there were deaths, severed heads, kidnappings, relationship problems, that sort of thing. The bracelet is something of a mixed blessing.

Marvel And Idw Join Forces To Present Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four Like Never Before

23 February 2017 10:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s quite pleasing to see that the legacy of legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby lives on. In addition to DC’s in progress maxiseries, The Kamandi Challenge, and Greater Creators devoting an episode of their web series to “The King,” Idw has partnered with Marvel in order to bring yet another special reprinting to consumers in the form of Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four World’s Greatest Artist’s Edition.

Despite them unfortunately not currently having a place in the Marvel Universe (the finer points of Disney and Fox not getting along is a discussion for another day), it’s important to realize none of what we have today would’ve existed without the publisher’s “First Family.” In short, Kirby and Stan Lee’s enduring classic revolutionized an industry as a whole, a notion thankfully not lost on Marvel Svp Sales & Marketing, David Gabriel:

Ryan Reynolds Shot A Logan Promo As Deadpool With Stan Lee

21 February 2017 4:17 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Next month, Hugh Jackman will don the adamantium claws one final time for James Mangold’s Logan. It’s set to be an absolutely electrifying outing for the character and early reviews are praising it as one of the best comic book movies of all-time. As such, it seems that we’re in for something pretty special, but one thing that we know it will not include is a cameo from the Merc with a Mouth.

Though early rumors pointed to Ryan Reynolds shooting a scene for the threequel, Mangold quickly put paid to that idea, as did Deadpool writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese. And while they certainly weren’t lying, there was one important detail that they left out.

According to notorious tipster El Mayimbe, Reynolds definitely did shoot something for Logan, but it wasn’t a cameo. Instead, it was a promo featuring Stan Lee, and it »

Marvel's Inhumans: Iwan Rheon to Star as Maximus

21 February 2017 12:01 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Iwan Rheon, who most of us have come to know as Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones, has landed the lead in ABC's upcoming production of Marvel's Inhumans.

Inhumans not only has a straight-to-series order for next fall but will premiere exclusively in Imax theaters for a two-week window in September prior to the network run. This show is expected to be that big.

Rheon will play Maximus brother to Black Bolt, who believes the Inhumans are the superior race on earth.

Inhumans explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.

In the series, Maximus is a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, the King – although he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.

“Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish, and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life. »

Michael Davis: No Sex On The Good Ship Lollipop 2…

15 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

Stan Lee, Jack Kirby & Black Panther take me to lunch!

This article features part one in its entirety. If you’d prefer to skip it scroll down to the paragraph break Core Business- it’s all caps and in bold. If you can I’d like you to read this from the beginning. I’ve made some changes albeit small ones I feel were warranted.

My apologies for the long delay.

The Black Panthers were at one time the number one target of the FBI in the 60s. They were viewed as terrorists and J. Edger Hoover the longtime leader of the most powerful police force in the world was hell bent on getting rid of them by hook or by crook.

Yep, hook or crook.

It’s no secret the United States Government from time to time will ignore the law. It’s fair to say it goes on »

Anatomically Correct Spider-Man Video Is Hilarious and Horrifying

14 February 2017 2:14 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has propelled the Marvel brand forward for the last decade or so, and they were able to do so without the help of everyone's favorite web slinger until very recently. It wasn't until Tom Holland showed up as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War last year that the character was featured in an McU movie. As has always been the case on screen, Spidey was slinging webs from his wrists. But what if Spider-Man were anatomically correct? Well, that would mean Spider-Man would be shooting webs from his butt and now, like it or not, we know what that would look like.

Corridor Digital recently uploaded a new video to their YouTube channel that features a completely different take on Spider-Man. In the video, we see a very familiar tale of a nerdy young guy who gets bit by a radioactive spider and is given superhuman abilities. »

Doctor Strange Gag Reel Gets Funny with the Sorcerer Supreme

11 February 2017 1:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Doctor Strange had more humor than expected when it arrived in theaters this past November. And as evidenced in the just released bloopers and gag reel, the actors where having quite a bit of fun on set. In this video, which will be included with the upcoming Blu-ray, we get to see Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton having a go at each other as they attempt to get through some of their scenes together.

The video shows Benedict Cumberbatch struggling with some of his Sorcerer moves, and he often times just breaks into dance. We also get to see him struggling with some of the dialogue that is quite the mystical mouthful. Tilda Swinton also appears to have an issue with some of the lines in this movie about magic and mysticism. The bloopers and gag reel arrives with another special feature from the Blu-ray. It's a behind-the-scenes featurette called 'The Astral Form'. »

Super Bowl Ad Review: Madison Avenue Urges U.S. to Move Past Trump

5 February 2017 6:38 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madison Avenue took to the Super Bowl in an attempt to knit together a great divide.

A bevy of free-spending marketers put down big bucks Sunday night to emphasize something they think already makes America great: unity and diversity. After more than a year of divisive rhetoric from a tumultuous presidential campaign, the Super Bowl commercials – valued at more than $5 million for 30 seconds of time – played up multicultural consumers, acceptance of different backgrounds and recognition of the world as a collection of people with different philosophies and values who need to learn to get along.

“It’s kind of a very unusual place to be in, when giant global corporations are becoming the moral compass for our society,” said Ari Halper, the chief creative officer at the New York office of Fcb, a big ad agency owned by Interpublic Group, in an interview. “If you look back through history, whether it was during Vietnam and Nixon or »
