Black Widow #4

Story: Chris Samnee, Mark Waid Art: Chris Samnee Colors: Matthew Wilson

Review: When Waid and Samnee last left us, Natasha was bleeding out after getting gutted by a little girl (tsk tsk, Nattie!).  Now the Black Widow is recovering after being saved by a former Red Room mentor. While Natasha recovers, she learns that a former friend who is also the daughter of the head mistress of the Red Room has created a new version, named The Dark Room (very original! »

Martha Thomases: Fear And Loathing at Hydra

10 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Over the last few weeks we’ve seen a vigorous discussion among people who create and/or love comics about the relationships and responsibilities of creators and fans. This is nothing new — fans have been demanding certain kinds of stories that authors don’t want to create at least since Conan Doyle was forced to bring Sherlock Holmes back from the dead — but the internet brings so many more people into the conversation.

And too many of these people on the internet don’t understand the difference between a discussion among people with different points of view and a unilateral demand for submission.

The specific irritant this time is the big reveal that Steve Rogers, our beloved Captain America, is and always has been an agent of Hydra.

Now, I don’t read Cap. Nothing against him, just not my jam. Still, when I read a commentary from the Israeli newspaper, »

Did Channing Tatum Exit Gambit for a DC Movie?

5 June 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that Warner Bros. has found a replacement for the departing Seth Grahame-Smith on The Flash, with Dope director Rick Famuyiwa coming aboard. As it turns out, if you had been following the director's Twitter, there were clues that he was boarding a DC movie, as he started following a number of people involved in the Dceu, such as Cyborg actor Ray Fisher, Batman himself Ben Affleck, director Zack Snyder and Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot. There is another intriguing development with his Twitter activity, which may hint that Channing Tatum has left 20th Century Fox's Marvel adaptation Gambit in favor of a DC movie, possibly The Flash.

Channing Tatum was one of the many other accounts director Rick Famuyiwa followed last week, including comic book artist Mark Waid, DC Films' chief Geoff Johns and the official Twitter accounts for both Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman. Since »

Comic Book Reviews: Marvel Round Up Week 06-01-2016

3 June 2016 5:55 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This week a Civil War Erupts and makes no sense, we gets some Wolverines actions (Logan and Laura), The Avengers deal with a galactic foe! The Punisher kills some bad guys (what else is new?) and Moon Knight just might be crazy! Read on to get some insight into this week’s Marvel Comics!

Civil War #1

Story: Brian Michael Bendis Art: David Marquez

Review: I don’t really get why this event is happening. I mean I get it in the sense of Captain America: Civil War is out in theaters and Marvel is I’m sure hoping to gain some traction from that, I get that the previous Civil War event was a big deal and its sort of “resurrection” during Secret Wars was popular, and I guess in the end Marvel just absolutely had to do another Civil War (See the term “Cash Grab”).

Shazam! Is Inspired by Marvel Movies Says the Rock's Producer

24 May 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you were worried that the fun colorful world of Shazam! was going to take a dark Batman V Superman turn, don't be. According to Dwayne Johnson's personal producer Hiram Garcia, this upcoming Dceu adventure will be a lot more colorful and fun than what else is being planned by Warner Bros. And perhaps it gets to slide out of the damp, dank rheum of the DC Comics Movie Universe for the sole fact that it is arriving from Warner Bros.'s sister studio New Line. Even though that is the case, Shazam! does fit into the current cinematic universe set up at Warner Bros.

Over the rest of this decade, there will be a number of DC Extended Universe movies infiltrating theaters. But only one of them stars The Rock. Though, Dwayne Johnson is taking on the role of villain Black Adam instead of the main hero. While »

Andrew Doscas’ Summer Reading List

16 May 2016 6:40 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There are different themes and moods associated with each season that, aside from the weather, make them remarkably different from one another.  Summer in particular is associated with vitality, energy, and joy, while winter, in contrast, is most linked to death, lethargy, and hopelessness.  These seasonal moods extend to all aspects of pop culture like movies and music too.  Albums like 808s and Heartbreak, Reflektor, and Led Zeppelin IV are clearly winter albums, while Some Girls, True Blue, and Californication are without question summer albums.

Even comic books reflect this trend as some are more fit for particular seasons or times of the day than others.  Some comics like Daredevil and Batman are nighttime books, while Superman and Amazing Spider-Man are daytime books. Batman Red Rain should be read around Halloween, while The Ultimates and The Ultimates 2 are the comic book equivalent of summer blockbusters.  Below is my list of »

Comic Book Review: Black Widow #3

15 May 2016 8:29 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

   Natasha Romanov is on the run from Shield. Tasked with retrieving an item from the deadly Red Room in Russia from a man calling himself Weeping Lion, she battles through her enemies as well as her memories to retrieve the object he wants. But all is not what it seems…

   I love Black Widow. The character is so intriguing. Starting off as a Russian spy and turning her life around to be a long time member of Shield, she carries the weight of her past on her shoulders. The previous run by Nathan Edmondson and Phil Noto brought some of the best Black Widow stories I have read as well as producing some of the best art I have seen in comics. When their run came to an end I had to wonder how Marvel could top such a great run.

Big Short's Adam McKay To Direct Comic Book Movie Irredeemable, Adapted By Dead Snow's Tommy Wirkola

6 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

This is an interesting combination. Deadline reported yesterday that The Big Short director Adam McKay will be directing an adaptation of the Boom! Comics comic book Irredeemable. Further adding to the intrigue, Dead Snow writer and director Tommy Wirkola is currently penning the adaptation.   McKay is already familiar with working in the superhero genre. He was brought in to work on the screenplay for the first Ant-Man film after Edgar Wright’s exit from the project. He has since written the story for the sequel, Ant-Man and The Wasp, with star Paul Rudd. In the Mark Waid-created comic book that debuted in 2009 and lasted 36 issues, the central figure is the Plutonian, the world’s greatest superhero until he began heartlessly slaughtering the population of...

Adam McKay lines up superhero movie ‘Irredeemable’

6 May 2016 3:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Adam McKay, who had a hand in the Ant-Man screenplay, will be getting his own superhero movie with Irredeemable. The Big Short director will take on the property as a future directorial project and will work from a script by Tommy Wirkola, who has adapted the Boom! Studios comic book.

The series, written by Mark Waid, follows the fall of the world’s greatest superhero, the Plutonian, as he begins slaughtering the population of Earth. It is illustrated by Peter Krause.

Deadline reports that this one could move quite fast, and as an adaptation away from the big boys at DC and Marvel, could get some big traction off of the release of this year’s Deadpool, which is currently the biggest superhero movie of the year so far. Who saw that coming.

Adam McKay to direct film adaptation of Mark Waid’s Irredeemable

6 May 2016 12:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Adam McKay has slowly been working his way toward directing a superhero movie for a couple years now. He rewrote the Ant-Man script with Paul Rudd after Edgar Wright’s departure, and was even in line to direct before passing on the project (which then went to Peyton Reed). He was then rumored to be in the running to helm The Inhumans, but we know that’s not going to happen because the film has been taken off of Marvel’s Phase Three slate.

Now, McKay finally is making his superhero directorial debut, though it’s not for Marvel Studios. Instead, he’s heading to 20th Century Fox to adapt Mark Waid’s 2009 comic Irredeemable. 

Irredeembale, from Boom! Studios, ran for 36 issues and told the story of the Plutonian, the world’s greatest superhero who turned evil and began slaughtering the people of Earth. It then fell to a superhero »

Adam McKay to direct Irredeemable, an evil superhero movie

twitter

Coming off The Big Short and Ant-Man, Adam McKay is now directing an adaptation of Mark Waid's Irredeemable!

Last year, Adam McKay made The Big Short, one of the best films of 2015 and a dizzyingly complex comedy-drama-turned tragedy about the 2000s housing market crash. It snagged McKay an Oscar too, for Best Adapted Screenplay. Having also written the final draft for Marvel StudiosAnt-Man, many expected his next film might be of the superhero variety. And yes it is, but not in the way you may expect.

Representing McKay stepping away, at least for the time being, from Marvel, he's partnering with 20th Century Fox to make a superhero movie with nary a mutant or X-Man in sight. Indeed, pulling from Boom! Comics, Fox is looking to diversify its masked men portfolio with an entirely separate superhero franchise based around the Irredeemable comic series.

Adam McKay Signs On For Comic Adaption Irredeemable

5 May 2016 3:29 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Big Short’s Adam McKay is no stranger to superhero movies, having worked on the script for Ant-Man (a movie he was once in line to direct) and circled the adaption of gritty anti-hero adaption The Boys for number of years. But he hasn’t gotten the chance to direct his own comic book adaption yet. Until now. Revealed by Deadline, the director is following up his Oscar winning account of the housing crisis by teaming up with 20th Century Fox (branching out with a movie not starring the X-Men or Deadpool) with an adaption of Mark Waid and Peter Krouse’s astounding Boom! Studios series, Irredeemable. First seeing the light of day in 2009, Irredeemable tells the tale of the Superman-like The Plutonian, the world’s greatest superhero. Well, that is until he snaps and kills millions, becoming the world’s greatest supervillain, and setting him on a collision course with his former allies, »

Irredeemable Movie Finds Home At Fox With Adam McKay At The Helm

5 May 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Much of the superhero news coming out of 20th Century Fox lately has revolved around X-Men, Deadpool and a certain squadron of New Mutants – and rightly so.

Standing on the verge of release, Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse represents the closure of a barnstorming and, crucially, lucrative prequel series; whereas Deadpool blew past just about everyone’s expectations to become the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time.

But for the studio’s next creative venture, they’ve turned to Boom! Comics’ Irredeemable, Mark Waid and Peter Krouse’s comic series that revolves around The Plutonian, a former hero who has a change of heart to become the most formidable supervillain the world has ever seen – flooding entire continents and racking up a death toll in the millions. Aiming to stem that rampage is the Paradigm, a ragtag crew of heroes that band together to, you guessed it, save the world. »

‘Big Short’ Director Adam McKay to Helm ‘Irredeemable’ Movie for Fox

5 May 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox has attached “The Big Short” writer-director Adam McKay to its movie adaptation of “Irredeemable” from Boom! Comics.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” writer-director Tommy Wirkola is writing the screenplay. McKay and Charles Randolph won the best adapted screenplay Oscar for “The Big Short.”

Producers are Boom! Studios’ Ross Richie and Stephen Christy along with Gary Sanchez’s McKay and Kevin Messick. Adam Yoelin is a co-producer. Boom! has a first-look deal at Fox.

The comic-book, written by Mark Waid, was published between 2009 and 2012 for a total of 37 issues and centered on fallen superhero the Plutonian, who begins slaughtering the population of Earth. His former allies, the superhero group the Paradigm, attempt to find a way to stop his rampage but none of them are as powerful as the maniac holding the world hostage. The Paradigm then turns in desperation to a famous supervillain for help.

McKay Helms Superhero Tale "Irredeemable"

5 May 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After talking about the idea for a while, and having co-written one with "Ant-Man," acclaimed "The Big Short" and "Anchorman" helmer Adam McKay has finally set his sights on directing a superhero film - just not one you might expect.

McKay is set to helm an edgy film adaptation of Boom! Comics' "Irredeemable" from a script by "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" director Tommy Wirkola. Mark Waid's limited edition comic follows Plutonian, the world's greatest superhero until he began heartlessly slaughtering those who defy him.

It falls to a superhero group of his former colleagues, now known as the Paradigm, to stop this mass-murdering maniac's rampage despite them not even being close to Plutonian in terms of power. Their only hope lies in an imprisoned famous supervillain.

McKay, Kevin Messick, Ross Richie and Stephen Christy are producing the film for 20th Century Fox.
