6 Wacky Marvel Comics Crossovers

17 December 2014 11:26 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Over the years, Marvel has done a ton of crossover comics, one of the most recent was The Avengers and Attack on Titan. It was short, but it was really freakin' cool. Affter doing a little research I came across six Marvel crossover comics that were ridiculous. The comic book publisher sure has some doozies over the years. Most of them offer some good, fun entertainment, while others simply sucked. Check out the list below:

Eminem/Punisher - Kill You

In 2009, Frank Castle and Marshall Mathers team up after the Punisher kills a bunch of Eminem’s bodyguards over a misunderstanding. After a concert, Punisher stops the limo from leaving so Slim-Shady and his entourage get out angrily to make him get out of the way. So what does Punisher do? He just automatically opens fire, killing many of them. After Eminem pistol whips Punisher, and an assassin named Barracuda »

A Visit to William Wegman’s Studio — and a Reunion With a Beloved Relic From His Past

12 December 2014 11:09 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

By far the most clamorous reception I encountered was at the home and studio of William Wegman, from his three Weimaraners — Candy, Bobbin, and Flo. Wegman is widely known for the photographs, films, and videos he stages of his gray-furred clan. This three-decade story began with Wegman’s legendary Man Ray. Fay Ray succeeded his reign in 1986, as later did her offspring, and theirs in turn. Flo, pictured here, arrived in March of 2011, and Topper in May, shortly after my visit. Appearances over the years have included The Tonight Show and Late Night With David Letterman, and Wegman has created film and video works for Saturday Night Live, Nickelodeon, and Sesame Street. Wegman has also produced a series of children’s books (including Little Red Riding HoodMother Goose, and Chip Wants a Dog) and many others for adult readership. “I was so excited to see that chair,” Wegman said »

SAG-aftra Leaders Approve Network Code Contract

8 December 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The SAG-AFTRA national board has approved the tentative agreement reached with ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox for a successor agreement on the union’s network television code master contract.

The board met Monday by video conference in New York and Los Angeles to review the terms of the new agreement and voted to send the contract to those eligible among the 165,000 members for ratification.

Members who are current on dues should receive the ratification package within the next week.

The tentative deal, reached Nov. 14, covers most non-primetime TV work and about $200 million in annual earnings for members. The gains are similar to those in the three-year SAG-AFTRA master contract covering feature film and primetime work, which members ratified in August.

“This is a terrific deal and I congratulate the hard-working negotiating committee,” said SAG-Afta president Ken Howard, who chaired the committee. “This agreement achieved significant gains across »

SAG-aftra’s Board Approves New Network TV Code Deal

8 December 2014 6:45 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The SAG-AFTRA board of directors has voted overwhelmingly to approve the new Network Television Code, the union’s contract covering nonprimetime TV shows. The new three-year pact, which generates more than $200 million a year in earnings, now goes to the guild’s members for final ratification.

The new agreement, which was tentatively struck on November 14, includes an 8.7% overall increase in “most program fees”: 2.5% the first year and 3% in each of the second and third years, compounded. That’s the same deal the union got earlier this year for its new film and TV contract, though it’s less than the 3% annual pay raises the DGA and the WGA got for their new film and television contracts.

Soap opera performers will be getting a smaller pay raise. Their wages will increase only 7.2% over three years: 2% the first year and 2.5% in each of the second and third years, compounded. News »

SAG-AFTRA and the networks have reached a tentative agreement over a three-year-plus successor agreement to the union’s Network Television Code master contract.

Robert Downey Jr. Drops Bomb On 'Iron Man' Franchise

8 October 2014 2:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Robert Downey Jr. isn't quite done with Iron Man just yet, but here's the sad new truth: he won't be making a fourth Iron Man film.  The actor stopped by Late Night with David Letterman last night to promote his new film, The Judge, but talk quickly turned to the future of the Iron Man films. Letterman knows what the people want, and he went after those answers.

When first asked about a fourth film, Downey would only say, “There’s no plans for an Iron Man 4.” Downey quickly tried to change the subject because Marvel is notorious for being very secretive of their future plans. He didn’t want to let too much slip out before an official announcement.

Letterman persisted and asked again whether there will be any more Iron Man movies, Downey finally gave in and gave a quick but informative response, saying, “Just between us, no, »

Actors Shouldn’t Promote Their Movies In Character

14 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Remember the movie Rubin and Ed? If not, maybe you at least remember when Crispin Glover appeared on Late Night with David Letterman in character as his role as Rubin. That was the time the actor nearly kicked the talk show host in the face. The problem there was partly that Letterman didn’t know what was going on. Also, neither Rubin and Ed nor Glover were familiar enough to warrant such a stunt or for that sort of promotion to work in their favor. Years later, Joaquin Phoenix drew comparisons to Glover when he appeared on Letterman’s Late Show acting strangely. It turned out he was also in character, albeit for a project then still in the works rather than as a promotional stunt. Well, actually it sort of worked as that, too, but either way it wasn’t helpful in wooing audiences to the movie involved, I’m Still Here. Both »

Comedy Central Renews Chris Hardwick’s ‘@midnight’

11 August 2014 9:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“@midnght,” host Chris Hardwick’s popular weeknight panel show that famously mixes the best of what both social media and improv comedy have to offer, has been given a second season order at Comedy Central.

The show became a ratings hit — especially with younger viewers — by maintaining high social engagements through crowdsourcing campaigns like the Twitter-focused #HashtagWars and including edgier comedic guest panelists like Ron Funches and Natasha Leggero.

“People always ask me when ‘@midnight’ airs,” Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s president of content development and original programming (possibly) joked when he made the announcement.

Hardwick, a comedian and former host of the MTV dating show “Singled Out” who grew in popularity through channels like his Nerdist podcasts before partnering with AMC on postmortem talk shows for their fan-favorited “The Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad,” said “’@midnight’ has been an absolute dream come true for me — a game show of »

Emmy Watch: How the Late Night Upheaval Could Shake Up the Variety Series Competition

When Johnny Carson signed off from The Tonight Show in 1992, his reign as the King of Late Night was celebrated with an Emmy win for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series. Granted, the competition that year was sparse: Fox's sketch-comedy show In Living Color and NBC's Late Night with David Letterman were the only others nominated.

Adam Resnick on His New Book, Writing for Letterman, and Annie Hall’s Lobster Problem

16 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s pretty much a well-known fact that there is nothing more difficult than being funny. It’s much harder to make someone laugh than it is to operate on their brain or send them into space. But Adam Resnick has never shied away from hard work — just people. In his new nonfiction book, Will Not Attend: Lively Stories of Detachment and Isolation, the esteemed former Late Night With David Letterman writer and Chris Elliott cohort (Get a Life and Cabin Boy) manages to crack you up on one page and have you in tears the next. And not because it’s sad, either — because you’re chuckling so strenuously. I first met Adam in 1986, when I was interning at Late Night during his long and influential stint there; he and I forged a deep bond over being anxious and constantly sleepy that continues to give us common ground all these years later. »
