When the official Comic-Con schedule was released a few weeks ago, there weren't many details about Marvel Studios' Hall H panel on Saturday. We already knew that Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 would be part of the festivities, thanks to social media updates from directors James Gunn and Scott Derrickson, but nothing else about the panel was known. Part of the festivities included the reveal of a new logo for Thor: Ragnarok, along with a unique skit put together by director Takika Waititi and a sizzle reel.
The logo debuted on Twitter, but we're not sure if this unique skit and will make its way online quite yet. The video is presented as a mini documentary that shows how stressed out Thor has become, and he has moved to New Zealand to become roommates with a guy named Darryl. There are scenes where Thor is talking with Bruce Banner, »
Glendale, Calif. – Since his creation in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, Captain America has gone through numerous evolutions, but always remains as one of the world’s most influential and inspiring Super Heroes. Kicking off a new phase of the year-long celebration of 75 years of Captain America, Marvel Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media have unveiled a slate of heroic activations taking place at San Diego Comic-Con and beyond to honor the First Avenger, along with a wide range of celebratory merchandise.
Headlining the Captain America 75th anniversary celebration, Marvel has collaborated with high-end collectibles maker Comicave Studios to create a one-of-a-kind Captain America statue that will be displayed at the Marvel booth #2329 at Comic-Con International on July 20.

After 75 years in the comic book business, Stan Lee has picked up his fair share of souvenirs. His handsomely shabby office in Beverly Hills is cluttered with cool superhero swag. There's a vintage Spider-Man pinball machine in one corner, a life-sized Spidey statue squatting in another, framed photos with multiple presidents (and Beatle Paul McCartney) on the walls and, of course, an army of action figures — Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, a doll that looks vaguely like Stan Lee himself — patrolling the bookshelves. But propped on the floor, easy to overlook amid all the superhero

This year sees Captain America reach the 75 years milestone, and to celebrate Marvel has commissioned an awesome 13 foot bronze statue based on the McU version of the Star Spangled Avenger, complete with the quote “I’m just a kid of Brooklyn” from Captain America: The First Avenger (in the original Joe Kirby and Joe Simon comic Steve Rogers was born on the Lower East Side). Entertainment Weekly has our first look at the special anniversary gift, which will be unveiled at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, where fans can take their picture with it and buy their own miniature replicas. After making its debut at geek mecca, bronze Cap will travel East across the country before settling down for a short time in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. In September, it will move to the borough’s Barclay’s Centre, then heading to Sunset Park in October. »

On top of all the new releases this week in Marvel Unlimited, including the final issue of Secret Wars, I wanted to re-read a few issues of one of my favorite comics “Ms. Marvel”. Set in New Jersey, it details the rise of one Kamala Khan, bringing her from your average teenager dealing with all the pressures of being a young woman to, thanks to a cloud of Terrigan Mist, taking over the mantle of Ms. Marvel from Carol Danvers.
I fell in love with this comic from page one. Much like how Stan Lee presented Peter Parker in Amazing Fantasy #15 all those years ago, G. Willow Wilson and company present a character that anyone can relate to. She’s awkward, dealing with the feelings young kids get when they first realize others can be attractive. She has family that she feels is overbearing but she loves them nonetheless. She »

Even though it’s Independence Day today, I am going to talk about Flag Day. It was a couple of weeks ago, and on that day Geek Culture paused to remember the passing of a favorite son. It was a day to celebrate the legacy of Mark Gruenwald, taken away too early twenty years ago. And for a guy who loved Captain America, it was fitting that his birthday was on Flag Day.
Catherine Schuller organized a wonderful tribute to her late husband celebrating the passion and humor with which he lived his life. By just looking at the crowd in the funky New York City club where it was held, you could tell his passion was infectious and long lasting.
My first exposure to Mark Gruenwald came from his visionary fanzine. Omniverse was published long before the Internet provided an infinite number of virtual spots for fans to gather »

Yoga Hosers (2016)
Directed By Kevin Smith
Starring Johnny Depp, Lily-Rose Depp, Harley Quinn Smith, Adam Brody, Justin Long, Natasha Lyonne, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Kevin Smith, Tony Hale, Ralph Garman, Tony Hale, Harley Morenstein, Tyler Posey, Austin Butler, Jason Mewes and Vanessa Paradis.
Two teenage yoga enthusiasts team up with a legendary man-hunter to battle with an ancient evil presence that is threatening their major party plans.
As a director, Kevin Smith has taken a rather divisive career turn in recent years. Gone are the days when the Fatman on Batman was an indie darling churning out critically acclaimed hits like Clerks, Chasing Amy and Dogma, and in his place is a podcaster who no longer cares about film conventions with outings like Red State and Tusk. This is a director who said he was retiring from the game to focus on podcasts, and now finds himself prepping another sequel to Clerks, »

2016 has seen a massive change in the Marvel Universe. Coinciding with the 75th Anniversary of Captain America we have seen a changing of the guard at the lead of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character of Captain America was introduced in the comic’s universe in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon. Created as patriotic superhero who would fight the Axis Powers of World War II to create patriotism in the hearts of young men. Time and time again the character of Steve Rogers has been pushed aside in the comic universe only to see him come back stronger than before. Captain America comics were discontinued in 1950 as the public had gotten over the end of World War II only to see his character come back to publication by Marvel Comics in 1964.

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

Everybody has his or her own favorite Marvel hero. Some people love Iron Man, other people love Thor; Marvel legend Stan Lee is no different. Over the years, he has struck up a strong relationship with many people within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This begs one interesting question: which McU actor has Stan Lee bonded with the most over the franchise's eight-year history? Stan Lee recently made an appearance on Larry King Now, and he was able to quickly answer that question when the host raised the issue: Chris. The fellow who plays Captain America, he was the Human Torch and then they made him Captain America and he’s the greatest guy, but I love them all. So it seems that Chris Evans and Stan Lee have developed a bond unlike any other shared between members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That being said, Stan »

Last week, Marvel released a new Captain America comic book that revealed a secret that hasn't been uncovered in the comic's 75 year history. This new issue revealed that Steve Rogers has been a Hydra agent all along, and that he was recruited as a young boy in the 1920s. Many fans have mixed reactions about this Hydra twist, and it isn't clear if the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies will eventually address this twist. However, Marvel legend Stan Lee recently responded to this huge reveal.
Chris Evans recently chimed in on this twist, and an artist named Boss Logic even provided artwork of what Cap may look like in a Hydra costume. ComicBook.com discovered a video from a MegaCon panel this weekend where Stan Lee was asked about this epic twist. Here's what the comic book legend had to say below.
"It's a hell of a clever idea; I don't »
Unless you've been living under a rock since Wednesday, you'll know that Captain America breaking bad and saying "Hail Hydra!" has pretty much broken the internet, with Marvel's latest stunt (in a long and very tedious line of them) seemingly proving too much for some. Needless to say, a lot of people have weighed in on the matter, and below you'll find some of the most noteworthy and interesting. "It's a helluva clever idea," the always pro-Marvel Stan Lee says in the video above (via Cbr) in response to a fan at MegaCon in Orlando, Florida. "I don't know that I would ever have thought of it, for him to be a double agent. But it's going to make you curious, it's going to make you want to read the books ... they'll probably do a movie based on it, so I can't fault it. It's a good idea. I think it's crazy, »
The first issue of Captain America: Steve Rogers has debuted and to say it’s caused a stir is an understatement. Without spoiling the issue, Steve Rogers ends the issue revealing an allegiance to someone that you never thought you would see.
The writer of the issue, Nick Spencer, has received quite the backlash on Twitter. Others, like Brian Bendis and Ed Brubaker, are also feeling the backlash despite having nothing to do with that particular comic. It was enough of a reaction that Facebook went and spoiled the surprise on their trending topics page.
The reaction to the story, while nice to see since it shows that people have feelings for the character, is a little puzzling. Would I want to see a character I cared about written in a way that was contrary to how he’d been portrayed? Of course. But I wouldn’t judge the »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' with Oscar Isaac in the supervillainous title role. 'X-Men: Apocalypse' review: Step back for series, but latest 'X-Men' movie 'works well enough' There's a three-way brawl going on in the Marvel universe, but it doesn't involve Spider-Man, Captain America, or Deadpool. Instead, the combatants are the three major movie studios who've divvied up the film rights to Marvel characters in licensing deals, some of which go back decades. In this corner we have Sony, makers of a Spider-Man series that has sunk so low since 2004's Spider-Man 2 that they punted the character back to our second combatant, Marvel Studios. In 2004, after years of seeing the majors compromise their intellectual property by making horrible film adaptations, they decided to finance and produce their own damn movies, in what would develop into an unprecedented winning streak. To this day, just when you think they're finally out of gas, Marvel »

For The Good
"Rated PG-13 for extended sequences of violence, action and 'mayhem', Marvel Studios' 'Captain America: Civil War' finds 'Steve Rogers' (Chris Evans) leading a new team of 'Avengers' in a 'Bourne'-looking, globe-hopping, bone-crunching follow-up to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' (2014)...
"With frantic fighting sequences inspired by Jack Kirby, 'Cap' (Evans) engages like there's no tomorrow...
"...crashing through windows while bouncing his bullet-ricocheting shield off floors and walls...
"...skull-fracturing hordes of baddies, effortlessly somersaulting, breakfalling, kicking and punching his way through the throng.
