Baltimore Comic Con 2014: Interview with Marguerite Bennett

7 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

At Baltimore Comic Con, I got the opportunity to chat with up and coming comics writer Marguerite Bennett about her projects past, present, and future for companies including Marvel, DC, and Boom! We also discussed her mentor Scott Snyder (Batman, The Wake), Batman: The Animated Series, and her time at the University of Mary Washington, which happens to be the college I am currently attending.

SoS: What was the first comic you ever read? How old were you? What was the context?

Marguerite Bennett: This isn’t exactly a comic, but Batman: The Animated Series was my big hook into the Bat-universe. after that, my friend Travis Covey would show me single issues from things like X-Men and Spawn. They were always completely out of the arc they were a part of so I’d be six years old going through these pages with no concept of what was going on. »

Do Marvel Comics Exist Within the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

5 September 2014 5:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the past month, Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been going head-to-head at the box office, taking turns besting each other for that coveted number one spot. In an interesting bit of timing, Star-Lord, played by Chris Pratt, makes a Turtles reference early in his film. Being a child of the 80s, this makes sense. But being a character within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, does it? Is it possible that Marvel Comics themselves exist within this world we're watching play out on the big screen?

Let's say Marvel Comics do not exist. Captain America can't stroll into 7-11 and pick up the latest issue of Spider-Man or X-Men (which might make sense, since those are at other studios and the characters don't currently reside in this universe as laid out by Marvel Studios). That also means that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles might not exist there, »

Marvel superhero movies that never got the greenlight

4 September 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From rock operas to Wes Craven to Dazzler, here's some Marvel movies that never quite made it...

Recently, we looked at the DC movies that never got the greenlight. We saw hordes of Superman movies which didn’t make it to screen, along with Batman film ideas and whole hosts of other DC heroes whose movies plummeted out of production (You can read that piece here).

On the other side of the superhero cinema fence, we have the seemingly all-encompassing, game-changing Marvel Cinematic Universe at the height of its powers, the X-Men franchise in rude health and the still-fresh memory of Spider-Man’s hasty reboot. You could be forgiven for thinking that not as many Marvel movies have struggled to get made as their DC counterparts. 

However, having delved once more into the ancient scrolls of cinema history (still better known as extensive Googling), we can confirm there’s plenty »

Why is Marvel Comics not releasing any ‘Big Hero 6' tie-ins?

3 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Coming soon (but not from Marvel). Walt Disney Animation has premiered an adorable two-minute clip from "Big Hero 6" that highlights the relationship between young Hiro and his robot Baymax, and has me looking forward to the Nov. 7 release of the film. Even from the limited glimpses we’ve gotten of them, the characters are already appealing. I sure would be down for reading more stories about them. However, Marvel has no plans to release any comic books in conjunction with the premiere of "Big Hero 6" — no reprints of the original stories that inspired from the movie, no new comics … nothing. As the first Disney animated movie to take advantage of the House of Mouse’s $4 billion purchase of the House of Ideas, you’d think this would be pretty exciting for Marvel, and something it would want to promote. And yet, Marvel is surprisingly quiet about "Big »

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: James Gunn Reveals Original Stan Lee Cameo

3 September 2014 3:50 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Over the years, Marvel superhero movies have set a standard of expectations for audiences. There is, of course, their blend of action and humor that’s come to encapsulate the brand, but there are also smaller additions which fans are often irate if not included. These necessary extras can be the now common mid- and post-credit scenes, but their most popular is definitely Stan Lee’s requisite cameo. The comic book legend has made an appearance in over 20 Marvel films, and not all necessarily from Marvel Studios as he’s had cameos in several X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Spider-Man films.

Lee’s cameos are always a humorous highlight and it was no different in this summer’s ...

Stan Lee confirms that a Black Panther movie is in the works

1 September 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Stan Lee, the well known creator of many of the world’s greatest comic characters and the king of cameos, may have let it slip that Marvel Studios are definitely working on a film based on Black Panther. Comic Book Resources quoted Lee at the Fan Expo Canada saying, “We haven’t made a Black Widow movie but she’s been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward,” Lee said. “And the chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about”.

This is exciting news for multiple reasons. First there has been a little bit of outcry for more diversity in superhero films. Captain America: The Winter Solider introduced Falcon, »

What The O.C.'s Seth Cohen did for geekdom

31 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Seth Cohen's character in The O.C. was much more than just a nerd punch-line, Wil argues, he paved the way for comic-book movie success...

We all have touchstones in adolescent life that end up shaping who we become. I’m sure we all share a few of them. Maybe it’s Holden Caulfield. Maybe it’s Kurt Cobain. Maybe it’s The Smiths or Fight Club or Ghost World. All of those had an effect on me, but I’m not ashamed to say that the one who had the biggest effect was Seth Cohen, a character in the early 2000s Fox teen soap opera The O.C.

Seth Cohen was awesome. He was awkward and read Chuck Klosterman and drew superheroes and wore the coolest t-shirts. He brought comic books, twee indie rock and snarky internet knowingness to a show few would associate with geekiness, and blasted all those things into the mainstream. »

8 obscure superhero team films to follow Guardians of the Galaxy

28 August 2014 5:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy is officially a hit, and has been hailed as one of the company's best films by many a critic. Before its release, the film was considered Marvel's biggest risk, based on an obscure team of cosmic heroes little known among comic fans, let alone the general public.

In celebration of Guardians' success, here are some other lesser known superhero teams we would love to see on the big screen...

1. Doom Patrol

Introduced just three months before Marvel's own misfits, the X-Men, DC's team of superhero oddities are a different breed from that team of merry mutants. While X-Men frequently explored the themes of minorities and social acceptance, Doom Patrol has made a habit of embracing its strangeness.

With core members including Robotman - the brain of a critically injured racecar driver implanted in an artificial body - and Negative Man - possessed by »

The Geek Beat: Thank You, Jack Kirby

26 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Every so often, some of the local comic creators, shop owners and geeky media types around the region where I live get together for breakfast at a neighborhood cafe. One of the topics of conversation at a recent meet-up was the late, great Jack Kirby, the cocreator of the Avengers, the X-Men and countless other iconic comic book characters. At the time, the local comics crew was in the midst of organizing a fundraiser in honor of Kirby's birthday, and at one point some of the people present – possibly due to the obscene amount of coffee that had been consumed – began running through a checklist of characters created by the legendary creator known as “The King.” It became a game of sorts, with everyone naming off a Kirby-created character, one after...

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Quicksilver'

25 August 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Comics' 'Quicksilver', aka 'Pietro Maximoff', as played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson ("Kick-Ass") from the set of Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Age Of Ultron":

Debuting in Marvel Comics' 'X-Men' #4 (March 1964), 'Quicksilver' was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, as the son of 'Magneto', twin brother of 'Scarlet Witch' and paternal half-brother of 'Polaris'.

An example of a ruthless villain turned good, the character is first revealed cinematically in a mid-credits scene in Marvel Studios' "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

"...'Quicksilver' is a mutant capable of moving and thinking at superhuman speeds. Originally capable of running at the speed of sound, the exposure to 'Isotope E' made it possible for the character to run at supersonic speeds of up to 'Mach 10', resisting the effects of friction, reduced oxygen and kinetic impact.

"The character's speed allows him to perform feats such as create cyclone-strength winds, »

Everything You Need To Know About Deadpool

14 August 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I remember first reading about Deadpool in the early 2000's in my X-Men anthology series. The picture next to his profile, if I remember right, was Dp kicking ass while talking about GI Joe. I remember thinking it was weird and flipping the page, not really giving it a second thought. Longshot was my favorite mutant. 

Fast forward to now, when the "Merc with a mouth" has skyrocketed to geek fame. Cons are flooded with geeks in suits, he's in video games and, yes, even children's programs.

So with all the hype of the potential movie on the horizon, you may be toying with the idea of getting into Deadpool. For those people, I have a collection of everything you need to know. Where you need to start reading, basic character background, etc. Let this be that little push you need to dive right into his twisted world!

Ranking Every Stan Lee Marvel Movie Cameo From Worst To Best

14 August 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel

Mainstream audiences may now be waking up to the beauty of post-credit scenes, but there’s been one major superhero movie in-joke that everyone’s been aware of for a long time; since the genre was brought to blockbuster prominence, the majority of Marvel movies have featured a cameo from the company’s former President and creator of some of their best characters, Stan Lee.

Normally a little burst of comedy amongst all the heroics, over the years his appearances have grown from background winks for serious fans to whole scenes where everyone watching is in on the joke. Lee was already a massive personality, being the figurehead of Marvel for decades and lending his voice to many of their cartoons, but these have made the guy who made Marvel, well, Marvel almost mythic.

Although it feels to the contrary, Lee hasn’t appeared in every movie on the »

Marvel Is Moving Forward With An Inhumans Film

12 August 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just a few days ago, Guardians of the Galaxy actor Vin Diesel teased fans (again) about The Inhumans, a film that’s been rumored to come down Marvel’s pipeline for quite some time. Now, it seems that the studio is finally moving forward with the project, which already has a script from Amber Lake scribe Joe Robert Cole. The next step is to take the script and find a filmmaker to bring the cosmic superhuman team to life.

For those unfamiliar with the characters, the Inhumans were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1975. Their history is filled with some confusing cosmic mumbo jumbo, but the basic idea is that they’re an advanced race of humans, who were genetically created by the Kree alien race millions of years ago. The Kree succeeded in creating a strain of humanity with extraordinary abilities, but abandoned their experiment due to »

Old Man Logan: a comic that should be a movie

11 August 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Is Old Man Logan the cinematic future for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine? Rob hopes so…

Despite playing a character that has lived for centuries in Marvel comics, Hugh Jackman is in the unfortunate position of gradually becoming too old to play Wolverine. Whilst it’s generally accepted that Wolverine does in fact age, it’s at a far more reduced rate than Hugh Jackman, who has no mutant powers (that we know of).

In X-Men: Days Of Future Past, this issue was faced (sort-of) head-on by making future Wolverine slightly grey-haired, like a cross between his younger self and Reed Richards, thereby suggesting that Wolverine’s anti-aging gene (which he could surely sell for amazing money to the cosmetics industry) was beginning to let up in the X-Men movie universe’s future timeline. A decent effort was made to hide the age of Hugh Jackman’s 1970s Wolverine, and, to be honest, »

"X-Men: Apocalypse": Enter 'Blink'

5 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Chinese actress Bingbing Fan has confirmed she will be returning for writer/director Bryan Singer's developing Fox feature "X-Men: Apocalypse", as the portal controlling 'X-Men' mutant 'Blink'.

"I am contracted to appear in the next four 'X-Men' films," said Fan :

"In the comics, 'Blink' is a Caucasian girl, so I was curious why Bryan wanted an Asian to play the role. He said that it’s time for Blink to make an appearance and, for her debut she has to be simply marvelous. It was an offer I couldn't refuse."

Created by writer Scott Lobdell and illustrator Joe Madureira for Marvel Comics' "Uncanny X-Men" #317 (1994), 'Blink'  has the ability to teleport herself and others at will.

She can also utilize these powers in a destructive manner by using her power to teleport only parts of objects. Her 'portals' are typically pink and accompanied by a "Blink" sound. »

Mindy Newell Discovers “Books”

4 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I discovered the All Souls trilogy by historian and fiction writer Deborah Harkness – I’m currently reading the final book, The Book Of Life (the first being A Discovery Of Witches and the second titled Shadow Of Night) and loving it, unable to stop, eager to discover how it all ends and yet not at all eager for it to end – quite by accident, which is usually the way I discover books.

I was browsing at Word, a terrific independent book store at 123 Newark Avenue in downtown Jersey City, New Jersey, and which deserves all the support in the world, as being an independent book store in these days of Amazon taking over the world is not only risky, but incredibly brave. Btw, I’ve never been in Word when it wasn’t crowded with bibliophiles. All of you, who love b-o-o-k-s know what I mean. There’s nothing like browsing in a bookstore, »
