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 »

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Quicksilver'

16 December 2014 7:46 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Comics' 'Quicksilver', aka 'Pietro Maximoff', 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, »

The big animated films of 2015

15 December 2014 6:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for a handy guide to 2015's biggest animated movies, from Shaun The Sheep to Minions and Peanuts? Then step this way...

There have been far better years for family entertainment, and for animated films, than 2014. Whilst there have been highlights - Paddington, The Wind Rises, How To Train Your Dragon 2, The Boxtrolls - the mix of material on offer hasn't particularly sparkled.

A quick glance at the 2015 release schedule suggests, to a degree, the same, with some notably absentees from the year's releases. And yet as we dug deeper for our traditional look ahead at the year's animated films, there might just be some real treats here. Starting with this one...

Strange Magic

Let's start with one of the wildcards. A film that only recently arrived on the 2015 release schedules is Strange Magic, which belatedly marks the feature directing debut for Gary Rydstrom.

The Week in Spandex – Spider-Man, Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Doctor Strange, Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Krypton and more

13 December 2014 6:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Our weekly round-up of the latest news and talking points from the world of screen superheroes, including Spider-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight Rises, Suicide Squad, The Flash, Arrow, Constantine, Krypton, Titans and more…

Just days after Stan Lee was quoted as stating that having Spider-Man, X-Men and The Fantastic Four as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was something that Marvel Studios “is very concerned about”, a flood of leaked emails from the Guardians of Peace hack into Sony arrived online, throwing up tonnes of details about the studio’s plans – or rather, lack of plans – for the wall-crawler. The biggest piece of news was the revelation that Marvel Studios tried unsuccessfully (for the time being, at least) to partner up with »

She Makes Comics review: Familiar and untold tales of women in comics

9 December 2014 11:49 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Marisa Stotter; Featuring: Karen Berger, Gail Simone, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Jenette Kahn, Becky Cloonan, Colleen Doran, Wendi Pini, Kate Leth, Raina Telgemeier, Marjorie Liu, Louise Simonson, Heidi MacDonald; Running time: 110 mins

The issues faced by women in comics are perennial but have been particularly visible in recent years - whether it is in terms of people speaking out about poor treatment, creators and fans saying appalling things or, on better days, representation and inclusion actually improving in the industry.

There's a whole lot to say on the matter, and today (December 9) director Marisa Stotter's documentary She Makes Comics has arrived to have its say.

The film has done a fantastic job of representing the new and old guard of comics, with interviewees including Jenette Kahn, Louise Simonson, Colleen Doran, Wendi Pini, Kate Leth, Becky Cloonan, Raina Telgemeier, Marjorie Liu, journalist Heidi MacDonald and many more.

Why Marvel Studios owes James Bond

7 December 2014 10:58 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

With Star Wars and Jurassic World the previous week, the past seven days has revealed the cast for Bond 24, aka Spectre, alongside confirmation that Ryan Reynolds will return in the standalone X-Men movie Deadpool. We knew 2015 was going to be busy, but now we are seeing a hint of the future. I doubt we will leave the cinema from May through to December! Nevertheless, Variety connected the dots between 007 and Marvel:

Since Marvel Studios started producing its own films and TV shows, Hydra has served as a heavy in “Captain America,” “The Avengers” and on ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” … It’s hard not to ignore the timing of the decision to re-introduce Spectre on the big screen.

Ryan Reynolds to Return as ‘Deadpool’ in X-Men Spinoff

4 December 2014 1:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ryan Reynolds is closing a deal to star in Fox-Marvel’s “Deadpool,” their long-in-development “X-Men” spin-off.

Reynolds announced the news by posting an image Thursday of the Deadpool character on his Twitter account.

Uh… It's Chimichanga Time. pic.twitter.com/ZlknW4HOtj

Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) December 4, 2014

“It’s chimichanga time” is a reference to Deadpool’s favorite food.

Fox announced several months ago that it had slotted “Deadpool” for Feb. 12, 2016. Reynolds, who portrayed the character in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” has been expected to star for many years.

Tim Miller is directing the superhero film from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel’s Kevin Feige are producing.

The talkative mercenary character, also known as Wade Wilson, was created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza. He first appeared in print in 1991.

Deadpool’s primary power is the ability to heal quickly.

26 November 2014 1:33 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman has topped a list of the five most powerful comic writers in Hollywood.

Geoff Johns, Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Millar and Chris Claremont also feature on The Hollywood Reporter's list.

Television series based on Bendis's Jessica Jones comic Alias and Powers series are both in development.

'X-Men' Writer Chris Claremont on the Past and Future of Fox's Superhero Franchise

25 November 2014 6:32 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It's difficult to overstate the importance of Chris Claremont, one of The Hollywood Reporter's most powerful comic writers, to the X-Men — or, for that matter, to modern superhero comics. For almost two decades, he was the sole writer of Marvel's Uncanny X-Men series, the best-selling comic of its day and something that shaped everything that followed even more than creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's original takes on the concept. His version on the characters remains at the core of Fox's X-Men movie franchise today, with the last two installments directly adapting two of his

Marvelous DA7E 71: Aunt May Redux, Inhumans Make TV

12 November 2014 3:06 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome To Issue 71!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation. Dr. Strange director Scott Derrickson thinks I'm a F*cktard. Sony probably isn't too psyched with me either right now. 

This Week: Let's elaborate more on that Aunt May thing. Then, Did You See Attilan On TV Last Night?!?!?!

I guess the best place to start would be with this week’s Aunt May story, namely that Sony is developing an Aunt May solo movie, or that’s what I said. Because Comic Book Resources reached out to their source and got a denial:

When reached by Cbr News, a source within Sony stated that the report of a Spider-Man spinoff starring a young Aunt May is a “silly rumor” with “no validity whatsoever.”

Now, it’s a battle of the unnamed sources, although »

Mike Gold: They Aren’t So Fantastic…

12 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

There has been a debate amongst comics wags that the rumor about Marvel cancelling their flagship title, Fantastic Four, during their 75th anniversary celebration was just that – a rumor. Marvel/Disney couldn’t possibly be that petty. Bleeding Cool.com‘s Rich Johnson, who carried the story, steadfastly stood behind his sources. Good for him.

Evidently, Marvel wasn’t happy with how 20th Century Fox was treating the property in the forthcoming movie reboot, they didn’t want to support it and so were cancelling the comic book. Ok, but would they cancel all those X-Men titles if they didn’t like the way Fox handled their latest X-movie? Of course not. Nor did Marvel cancel the Spider-Man titles despite the atrocious way Columbia handled the Spidey flicks of late – and they’ve got release dates for three or four more.

To be fair, compared to the profits of the »

'Big Hero 6' strays far from its source material -- and that's great

10 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Big Hero 6 is the first Disney film based on a Marvel comic, but the marketing campaign isn't making a big deal out of it. That's by design—the studio intentionally sought out an obscure property so they could make it their own, free of any sort of expectation from audiences. This strategy shows in the final product: While the film's characters do have comic book counterparts, they are very, very different from their predecessors. And the film is so much better for it. The super-team known as Big Hero 6 only ever appeared in its own comic book series »

​DC vs. Marvel: Who's Winning the Comics War on TV?

7 November 2014 5:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At the multiplex, the age-old battle between DC Comics and Marvel Comics -- between the House of Superman and Batman and the House of Spider-Man and Iron Man -- there's no question that Marvel has been winning decisively for nearly two decades. But what about the battle between the two superhero universes on TV?

On the small screen, DC seems to be on top, as it has since virtually the dawn of television. Just in terms of sheer numbers, DC has four current primetime series ("Arrow," "The Flash," "Gotham," and "Constantine"), compared to just one for Marvel ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.").

A recent article at Salon pointed out this discrepancy, which naturally got the author in trouble with the Marvel faithful. Marvel defenders will tell you that "S.H.I.E.L.D." is much improved in its second season over its first, and that the DC characters, storylines, and even visuals seem thin by comparison. »

13 People You Didn’t Know Were In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

7 November 2014 1:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Cinematic Universe

When Iron Man was released in 2008, few could’ve predicted that it would be the catalyst for one of the most successful entertainment franchises in history – the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Despite lacking the film rights to some of their most iconic characters, including Spider-Man and the X-Men, Marvel Studio’s writers and directors, many of whom were somewhat left-field choices for their roles, have succeeded in creating a shared universe that continues to wow audiences with each subsequent entry. The series is already the second highest-grossing film franchise of all time, and needs just to make an additional $600 million at the box office to take the top spot from Harry Potter, which it will surely do when Avengers: Age Of Ultron (the trailer for which was recently showcased) is released on the May the 15th next year.

Aside from the second Avengers outing, there are ten »

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

TV Review: ‘Marvel, 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop!’

4 November 2014 6:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For anyone who has seen more than one Marvel movie but would shrug perplexedly at the mention of Jack Kirby or Steve Ditko, “Marvel, 75 Years: From Pulp To Pop!” — an ABC special, giving “Agents of Shield” the week off — should probably be required viewing. Fun, fast-paced and encompassing many of the company’s highlights along with a few lowlights, it’s a solid primer on Marvel’s history, while weaving in inevitable self-promotion and synergistic plugs. Frankly, an hour doesn’t do the topic justice, but it’s still a timely recognition of the outfit that started out 75 years ago as, yes, Timely Comics.

Hosted by Emily VanCamp — who not only stars in ABC’s “Revenge” and appeared in the last “Captain America” movie, but also looks like a stereotypical comicbook fan’s imaginary girlfriend — the special races through those early years, when editor Martin Goodman began churning out superhero »

5 X-Men Characters Who Need To Be Included In Channing Tatum's Gambit Movie

3 November 2014 4:04 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Last week, it was made official that Gambit would get his own movie within in the X-Men film franchise. Starring Channing Tatum as the card-throwing mutant, the solo film will be written by Robocop reboot writer Josh Zetumer and based off a treatment from Gambit creator Chris Claremont. This will be his first appearance since X-Men Origins: Wolverine, although there have been rumors of the character appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse. While this movie likely won.t feature Gambit saving the world or anything as heavy as that, it will be good to see the Ragin. Cajun get another shot at the big screen, no matter what the adventure is. While Gambit hasn.t had as many solo stories as Wolverine, who is the only Marvel mutant to get his own movie thus far (Deadpool is coming!), there are still plenty of material to draw from his past, whether it.s »
