Looking back at Nick Fury: Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

23 June 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's been 16 years since there was a Nick Fury movie. He was played by - really - David Hasselhoff. We made Matt watch it.

Feature

Nick Fury is introduced to us wearing a vest and an eye patch, smashing a pick axe against a wall while smoking a cigar. He is David Hasselhoff.

(Note –apparently the above is ‘not an article’. Please find ‘an article’ below.)

“Hey! This isn't a $150m blockbuster! That isn't Samuel L. Jackson! Hey!”

Tricked again.

‘Matt,’ the email said ‘Do you want to cover a Marvel release for us?’ I thought I was getting called up to the Den Of Geek A-list, but it turns out that the Nick Fury film I’d be covering was not part of the current blockbuster parade, overseen by cinematic warlord Kevin Feige. Rather, it was an extended TV pilot that aired as a film to not much fanfare in 1998 starring David Hasselhoff. »

Awfully Good: Captain America (1990)

2 April 2014 4:54 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Before The Winter Soldier and The First Avenger there was. Captain America (1990) Director: Albert Pyun Stars: Matt Salinger, Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty Steve Rogers must save the world from Italian fascists and lousy production values. I hope you appreciate the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, because there was a period of time where comic fans had to deal with films like this. There was no Internet to hear gossip or get hints as to what was coming. You showed up, »

Captain America and the superhero movies Hollywood has tried to bury

26 March 2014 6:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Superheroes might be big business in the movie world right now, but that hasn't always been the case. Despite the success of the early Christopher Reeve Superman films and Tim Burton's Batman outings, the genre was something of a poisoned chalice for filmmakers throughout the '80s and '90s. Buoyed by Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie, Hollywood mined the pages of DC and Marvel Comics in search of the next big thing. Unfortunately, small budgets and shaky scripts resulted in a string of flops ranging from Supergirl (1983) to Howard the Duck (1986). And yet, impossibly, things would get even worse for the comic book genre in the years that followed.

In 1989, the same year Tim Burton's Batman hit cinemas, Dolph Lundgren led The Punisher, a violent action-thriller based on Marvel character Frank Castle. A vigilante who takes revenge on criminals after his family is murdered in a mob killing, »
