It’s an embarrassment of riches for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU), dear readers. Hot on the heels of last week’s examination of the Ant-Man teaser trailer, this week’s Trailer Trashin’ looks at what will probably be the biggest movie of summer 2015, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Chiwetel Ejiofor May Star In Marvel’s 'Doctor Strange'

23 January 2015 6:17 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor is being courted by Marvel to take on an unspecified role in Doctor Strange. Ejiofor could join Benedict Cumberbatch, who is starring as the surgeon turned sorcerer supreme Stephen Strange, aka Doctor Strange.

Marvel had no comment as talks are said to be in the early stages.

The site also says that he could be taking on the villain role of the film but some of their sources have said that's not the case. The villain is likely to be classic bad guy Baron Karl Mordo, a sorcerer’s pupil whose next-in-line status is usurped by Doctor Strange, thus making him the physician’s fierce rival.

The film is based on the Marvel Comics character created by Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. Stephen Strange beset by demons controlled by apprentice sorcerer Karl Mordo, but was rescued by Mordo's mentor, »

LiveJournal Debuts Video Hosting, Comic Book Legend Stan Lee First To Upload

22 January 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

LiveJournal is getting into online video in a way which should please the site’s more visually-inclined users. The anonymity-supporting blogging platform introduced video hosting on January 22, 2015, and comic book legend Stan Lee was the first to upload a video using the new feature.

Before the video hosting feature was introduced, LiveJournal bloggers were able to embed videos from other sites (but they’d have to upload their own video content to sites like YouTube before they could link or embed to them). LiveJournal’s new native video hosting simplifies this process. The platform’s users can now upload a video directly to LiveJournal, share it with their friends, and easily embed it into their posts.

The first LiveJournal user to upload a video to his blog was Lee, creator of such comic book characters as Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the Fantastic Four. Lee’s video was about the final »

It was 75 Years Ago The Shadow hit the Comic Racks

21 January 2015 3:39 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Seventy-five years ago, The Shadow and Doc Savage made their four-color debut on January 21st, 1940 in Shadow Comics #1, which also featured the first comic book appearances of Nick Carter, Bill Barnes, Frank Merriwell, Iron Munro and a variety of other popular Street & Smith pulp characters.

With the possible exception of Walt Disney’S Comics & Stories, it is unlikely that any other comic magazine ever debuted with as many pre-proven famous characters. The Shadow had already starred in nearly 200 pulp novels and several films, while his weekly radio show had the highest audience ratings in daytime radio. Iron Munro was based on John W. Campbell’s novel The Mightiest Machine, one of the inspirations for Jerry Siegel’s Superman, and featured the exploits of a human born and raised under Jupiter’s high gravity who arrived on Earth to discover that his denser molecular structure gave him invulnerability, super strength and »

Stan Lee comments on Marvel’s upcoming reboot

21 January 2015 1:33 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night Marvel Entertainment announced that its summer event series Secret Wars will serve as a reboot to the Marvel Universe, and now comic book legend Stan Lee has shared his thoughts on the end of an era during an interview with Newsarama:

“It’s probably good. Anything they do that’s unexpected and different usually captures the attention of the fans. People will want to follow it to see what happens and where it will lead. Marvel cannot keep doing the same stories over and over again. You always have to come up with new angles and new approaches to things. I think it’s probably a good idea. It sounds intriguing to me. Of course I have an emotional attachment to the original Marvel Universe, because I was so involved in it. But that doesn’t mean I expect it to be that way forever. It might be better under this new approach. »

Pittsburgh Comicon: A History

20 January 2015 6:17 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Founded in 1994 by Michael and Renee George, Pittsburgh Comicon is held every year in the Monroeville Convention Center, near the Monroeville Mall. Fans of the horror genre will recognize the mall from its appearance in Dawn of the Dead (1978) and Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008), among others. The city’s pop-culture history makes it an ideal location for a pop-culture based convention. The convention is usually small, but has been used to raise more than $250,000 at a time for local charities including the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Over the years, the show has been host to some of the largest names in the entertainment industry, including greats like Kevin Smith, Tom Savini, Mark Waid, and even Stan Lee. The convention has even been the setting for a few of my articles here at Sound on Sight.

This year, Pittsburgh Comicon made a major announcement. The convention has been taken over by Wizard World, »

The Marvel Universe Is Ending; Will It Affect the Movies?

20 January 2015 4:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel announced today that its comic book universe that has been established since 1961 will all come to an end with the upcoming eight-issue release of Secret Wars, arriving this May. While details are still scant after today's announcement, many fans are wondering how this will affect the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which hasn't even started its nine-movie Phase Three yet that kicks off with next year's Captain America: Civil War. Since the movie division's slate is locked in for the next four years, today's big news may not have a short-term effect on the McU, but it very well may shape Phase Four and beyond. Here's what Marvel's Senior Vice President of Publishing and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort had to say in a statement during Marvel's press conference.

"Once we hit Secret Wars No. 1, there is no Marvel Universe, Ultimate Universe, or any other. It's all Battleworld."

Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso added his own statement. »

"Fantastic Four" Movie Updates

14 January 2015 7:53 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to some internet reports, director Josh Trank's Fox feature film reboot of Marvel's "Fantastic Four", starring Kate Mara, Toby Kebbell and Michael B. Jordan could have a climax set in a cosmic universe previously established by writer Stan Lee and illustrator, co-plotter Jack Kirby:

"The first half of the second act in the film, including the final battle...

"...will be set in the 'Negative Zone', aka 'Dimension N'..."

The 'Negative Zone' first appeared in Marvel's "Fantastic Four" #51 (June 1966), as a universe parallel to Earth's...

...negatively charged and entirely filled with a pressurized, breathable atmosphere. 

Near the center of the Negative Zone is a deadly vortex of unspeakable power.

Since the Negative Zone is largely uninhabited, several would-be conquerors have attempted to bridge the gap to Earth and take over its population.

Notable residents of the Negative Zone include 'Blastaar', 'Annihilus', 'Stygorr' and 'Noktiis'.

Trailer Trashin’: Meet the Size-Changing Avenger in Ant-Man

14 January 2015 1:57 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s not even halfway through January, dear readers, and we’ve already seen trailers for many of the year’s big movies. Such is the case with this week’s Trailer Trashin’ column, which examines our first look at Marvel’s upcoming July release Ant-Man.

Premise: Petty thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must aid his mentor Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) in safeguarding the mystery of the Ant-Man technology – which allows its user to decrease in size but increase in strength – from various new threats, and plot a heist that will save the world.

My take: It’s been a long, strange journey to the silver screen for Marvel’s size-changing hero Ant-Man. Marvel Studios began developing the project way back in 2006, when they hired English filmmaker Edgar Wright – the man who brought us Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), and The World’s »
