Stan Lee and Michael Uslan hosting free online comics course

21 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stan Lee and Michael Uslan will contribute to a free online course on the history of comics and superheroes.

The Marvel Comics legend and Batman producer will be part of edX and the Smithsonian Institution's 'The Rise of Superheroes and Their Impact on Pop Culture'.

The course will cover the foundation of the Golden Age of comics, passing through the scares of the '50s to the gradually increasing acceptance of the medium.

"It's a great honour being invited to share my views on the evolution of superheroes and the genre's overall impact across all generations of people," said Lee.

"Throughout my career, characters have evolved so much - from drawings on a page to other-worldly special effects only animation could produce, to live-action and so much more. I can't wait to dive into these discussions thanks to Smithsonian and edX."

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Didn’t Know About Wolverine

2 March 2015 4:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Despite not being one of the classic Marvel characters created by the likes of Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and Jack Kirby in the 1960s, Wolverine is still considered one of their best superheroes and is easily as big a fan-favourite as Spider-Man and The Avengers.

It’s not hard to see why that is either. The gruff X-Men character is like a comic book version of Clint Eastwood, and his adventures – which are usually much more violent than those of Captain America and Daredevil for example – have been keeping Marvel fans hooked for decades now. Whether it’s in his classic blue and yellow costume, a vest and jeans, or any other variation worn since his first appearance in 1974, Wolverine is a Marvel mainstay.

However, with a history which goes back as far as the 19th Century, there’s a lot than even the most devoted fan may »

The Great British Comic Cons

1 March 2015 7:31 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Britain has a long, long history of staging comic conventions. The first one was held in a Birmingham hotel in 1968 which had a young Alan Moore as a guest. The success of the event paved the way for overseas guests to jump across the pond such as Frank Miller, Jim Steranko, and the late Gil Kane and appear at various events in the country.

As Ukcac became a well known convention amongst fans and creators across Britain. Held at various parts of the country, it was the stomping ground of various British creators, such guests included Will Eisner and John Buscema it gained recognition as convention organisers staged the prestigious Eagle Awards, which many Bronze age enthusiasts will recall Uncanny X-Men and Master of Kung Fu winning best dramatic comic book.

Although there was a slow period, where the focus at events was celebrity and anime but a resurgence soon »

Exclusive: Four New Fantastic Four Stills Arrive

25 February 2015 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Chronicle director Josh Trank has made a Fantastic Four movie - but not one like the Chris Evans 'n' Jessica Alba version you may remember. This one has Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell in it, for starters, and what's more, it's distinctly less "cartoonish", to quote the director himself. For proof, here are some stills from the upcoming film, straight from the new issue of Empire, on shelves today.A key difference in this superhero reboot lies in the origins of the characters' powers. In the original Stan Lee/Jack Kirby iteration of the Fantastic Four, the team gains their powers by travelling into space, where they’re bombarded with DNA-altering cosmic rays. But Trank’s film draws more heavily on the Ultimate Fantastic Four, which abandoned space flight in favour of inter-dimensional travel.Speaking to Empire for the new issue, Trank explains that the »

Four New 'Fantastic Four' Reboot Pictures

25 February 2015 3:31 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Empire has posted four new pictures from Josh Trank's upcoming The Fantastic Four reboot offering new looks at the film's four leads, which means new pictures of Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell as the titular four. Discussing the upcoming movie, set for an August 7 release, we learn the key difference between this film and the previous releases as well as Stan Lee/Jack Kirby's iteration, this version will draw from the "Ultimate Fantastic Four", which abandoned the idea of the heroes gaining their powers from cosmic rays during space flight in favor of inter-dimensional travel. Trank referred to the picture as a "dark Amblin movie", referring to the early days of Steven Spielberg's films, with writer/producer Simon Kinberg adding, "There was an Amblin-style approach to the characterization, and to contextualizing everything in a real world".

'Nightcrawler' Director Talks 'Tsunami of Superhero Movies'

23 February 2015 8:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

To find truly original stories at the local cineplex, we've had to rely on independent film the past two decades, as Hollywood seems intend on force feeding the masses remakes, sequels and superhero movies. One person who thinks there are far too many Marvel and DC adventures flooding the market at this current time is Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy. Speaking out against masked vigilantes and their vice grip on Hollywood, the Nightcrawler director used his win for 'Best First Feature' at the 30th Annual Independent Spirit Awards to rally his filmmaking troops and thank the independent directors weathering the storm. From his podium, he screamed:

"Independent film, the foundation and everybody here today, I think are holdouts against a tsunami of superhero movies that have swept over this industry. We have survived and we have thrived and I think that's true spirit."

Interview: Stan Lee's The Zodiac Legacy Co-Writer Stuart Moore & Artist Andie Tong

16 February 2015 7:26 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Comic Book Movie had a great opportunity to sit and chat with the creators of the recently released The Zodiac Legacy: Convergence, from Disney Press Publishing, by the legendary Stan Lee, Stuart Moore, Andie Tong, and Nachie Marsham (Editor Disney Publishing)—the first novel in a series of novels by Stan Lee—which is actually his first illustrated novel. To differentiate it from what we would call a graphic novel. The book released January 27th everywhere and they kindly sent me a copy prior to its release. Essentially, the book is beautifully illustrated with sections of art in between the chapters; which on their own make up for a fine graphic novel.   After reading through the first couple of chapters I was definitely enjoying the book. It tended more toward a pre-teen/young adult atmosphere and had a very family friendly tone. Which makes sense for something Disney would publish. »

10 Directors For The New Spider-Man Movie

14 February 2015 3:57 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Spider-Man is coming home to Marvel Studios next year in Captain America: Civil War, and a solo movie dated for July 28th, 2017 will follow what is sure to be one of the most talked about moments ever in a comic book movie. Even now, it’s still hard to picture Spidey interacting with characters like Captain America and Iron Man. Fans always dreamed about it happening, but the chances of those coming true always seemed slim to none.

Very little is known about what’s next for Spider-Man. Various outlets have reported that he will return to high school, with a greater focus on how Peter Parker balances his life as a superhero with being a teenager (something which sounds delightfully similar to the classic tales from Stan Lee and Steve Ditko tales). The “Sony Hack” emails meanwhile indicated that he will do all of this in the »

Raise Your Own Superhero Children in This New Kickstarter

13 February 2015 10:03 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

There's a new game on KickStarter that's looking to let you raise your very own superhero from birth until they take flight and fight crime on their own, which might just be worth your time to invest in.  Check out all the details and find out how you can help it become a reality inside! 

I got some PR on a new game (for mobile platforms) that's currently looking for funding on KickStarter, Raising My SuperKids.  I'm going to let the release do most of the talking here for all the details you need, but I will say that it looks a Lot like a combination of Sims, superheroes, and Tamogatchi virtual pets.  This is a great sounding combination.  It's looking for funding right now, and comes with perks for donating, of course, including a chance to meet Jc Lee, Stan Lee's daughter.

How Marvel went from bankruptcy to billions

12 February 2015 9:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In less than 20 years, Marvel has risen from bankruptcy to multi-billion-dollar business. Ryan charts its rise and rise...

Just about every great comic book story has a darkest hour moment: a point in the tale where all seems lost. The heroes are on their knees, the city's a smouldering ruin and the villains are closing in for the kill. For Marvel, its darkest hour came in the winter of 1996.

A company that had grown in stature throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s thanks to the often stunning art and storytelling in such comics as Fantastic Four and The Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel's financial success had reached a peak by the early 90s. But then a series of bursting financial bubbles and questionable business deals saw Marvel's stock value collapse; shares once worth $35.75 each in 1993 had sunk to $2.375 three years later. An ugly fight between a group of very rich investors followed, »

Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead – The Review

11 February 2015 7:09 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

We’ve been through many cycles of cinematic history now, reached many milestones and have given birth to many cliche’s as well, but as time draws forth, where does film take hold to ensure a continued future of innovation? Certainly, technology does, and will always have its part in the creative endeavor of filmmaking, but when it comes to story, are we beginning to see the long, slow death of originality? On some levels, I fear this may be a temporary reality, but much like life and energy itself, never truly dies and will always find a way.

It will come as no surprise that many a studio film is churned out in formulaic fear of stirring the pot, rousing the dormant interest of adventurous viewers, but we still have our independence. Indie filmmakers, the experimenters, the explorers, the balls-to-the-wall, no excuses, just make it happen and make it yours pioneers. »

Does Hugh Jackman believe Wolverine can join the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

11 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York - Monday night's announcement that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios had come to an agreement to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (aka the "Avengers" Universe) set Hollywood and movie fans into a tizzy over the possibilities.  Spider-Man had been, effectively, on his own island since Sony controlled the big screen rights to the Web Slinger.  Now, he can join his fellow "Avengers" in whatever cinematic adventures that might bring. What many fans might not realize is that Spider-Man has only been an Avenger in the Marvel Comic Book Universe for about 10 years.  Moreover, Spidey wasn't the only big name to join these "new" Avengers at the time.  The Avengers also brought a major mutant force, Wolverine, into the fold.  Everyone's favorite "X-Men" member is part of a third Marvel Mutant Universe controlled by 20th Century Fox.  The chances of Fox making a deal with Marvel Studios »

An Appreciation of Robbie Robertson

11 February 2015 9:53 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Peter Parker walks into the offices of the Daily Bugle. People are flying by him as Peter makes his way past the many cubicles. The day is abuzz with individuals discussing the most recent Spider-Man sighting. A mixture of nerves and excitement are held within Peter, as he holds a folder filled with photographs of last night’s run in with The Vulture. A loud, abrasive man comes flying out from the office Peter was just about to walk into: J. Jonah Jameson. Jonah yells at another man, whose back is turned to the two of them, asking him to join Jonah and Peter in his office. As Peter lays out last nights work, dollar signs begin to float around in his head. Jonah throws out a disappointing number alongside a few droppings of the word “Menace!” as he begins to write it on a cheque: a sign of approval not needed. »

If you take a look at the top 100 all-time highest worldwide grossing movies, fifteen of them are either Marvel or DC comic adaptations. According to Box Office Mojo the third highest grossing film of all time is The Avengers (2012) at over a billion and a half dollars. Comics, it would seem, are major players in the world of entertainment.

Seventy-five years ago it was all very different. Comics were for children and were disregarded as both an entertainment medium and as an art form. Comics were disposable. Because of their ephemeral nature surviving early copies now trade hands for vast sums. »

7 actors who could play Marvel’s new Spider-Man

Luke Owen looks at actors who could play Spider-Man

What amazing news to wake up to on a Tuesday morning – Spider-Man has come home to Marvel to be part of their cinematic universe. The world famous wall-crawler will start swinging through New York in 2017 for our third Spider-Man series in the last fifteen years.

According to a report from The Wrap, it looks as those Andrew Garfield has been ousted as Peter Parker, which was to be expected based on some of the emails from last December’s “Sony Hack”. Garfield was not keen on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and spoke about it negativity in public – not the wisest of moves there, sir.

So, with Garfield out and a new movie on the way – who could take on the role of the Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man?

1. Donald Glover

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Tomorrow People's Luke Mitchell joins cast

6 February 2015 12:39 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. delves further into Marvel lore, Luke Mitchell is set to appear…

Warning: spoilers for anyone not up-to-date with Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2.

Fans have been predicting for a long while that Marvels’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. will eventually tackle the Inhumans, teeing up the concept for a 2018 big screen movie. Anyone who is up-to-date with the show will know that this will begin coming to the fore in the second half of season 2.

Now, we have an actor lined up for an integral Inhuman character – The Tomorrow People actor Luke Mitchell will play Lincoln, “a charismatic Inhuman who will help Skye (Chloe Bennet) understand the true extent of her Inhuman heritage.”

In lieu of conversations with her dad, then, it seems Mr Mitchell, whose Inhuman abilities remain a tantalising secret, will clue in Skye about her origins and abilities.
